I have been going to various chiropractors for about twenty years, and they had treated my symptoms pretty well. I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in January 2000, and started walking with a cane in August 2004. I felt that my activity level and my world were shrinking in ways I experienced as losses. When I saw what remarkable changes were happening to a friend who was in this practice, I became hopeful that it could work for me.
Since I have been coming regularly, I have noticed more energy and greater balance. Today I found myself walking two and a half blocks to my appointment instead of driving, and I felt joyous when I arrived. I was tired when I walked back to work, but was glad that I had made the effort. That seems to encapsulate my story – I’m glad that I am making the effort, and that there are people to support my growth and change along the way. There is hope with multiple sclerosis, and widening vistas await me. Thank you.
