Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. Ever since then I've suffered with severe neck pain, arm



Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus.   Ever since then I've suffered with severe neck pain, armIn 2015 I was diagnosed with auto immune diseases: Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. Ever since then I've suffered with severe neck pain, arm pain and knee pain, which limited my activities of daily living with pain. I had never been to a chiropractor, a bit scared, but I had several friends who had benefited with great results.
In June of 2017, I had a severe flare-up of neck pain so bad that I could barely move my neck side to side. I was extremely weakened because of it, with bad knee pain as well. My massage therapist recognized my plight and referred me to another chiropractor she knew. That office was unable to see me at that time so they referred me to Drs David & Lorraine Melendez at Gold Coast Chiropractic Center, and I'm so glad they did.
In much pain and apprehension, I began Crisis Care in June of 2017. I had relief after my first adjustment and within the first month of care I started to see lasting results. Every month I get better and have less pain. Friends/family are noticing and telling me I am standing straighter and have more energy.
I have a long commute to work each day, with sitting in the car and at work, it usually takes a toll on me causing a lot of pain. Since starting care, my knees no longer constantly hurt and I'm now able to go out dancing without knee or neck pain; I even walked 5 miles this past weekend without pain for the first time in many years. This only makes me more motivated to get out and do more, a renewed zest for life!
My co-workers and friends say I seem happier. I personally feel so much better being almost pain free, with an improved energy level and a new hope that I can lead a normal, healthy life and do many more fun things.
I have a renewed confidence and once again like seeing myself in pictures with better posture and less tension in my neck, shoulders and body. I enjoy coming to see the doctors at GCCC, there's always a great energy conveyed by Dr. David and staff and how they care for their patients. He is very caring and I know he has my best interest in mind.
Thank you,

Lynda H.
