“I’m able to enjoy my family more and can be active without pain.”
“I did not have to accept crippling pain every single day, as my new normal.”
I first came to Gold Coast Chiropractic Center after doing some research online. After reading positive Yelp reviews and seeing their 5 star ranking, I decided this family practice looked hopeful!
When I arrived at the office, I could not stand up straight. I was so crooked, that I was using a cane, and I am far too young to be using a cane. I was in so much pain and had been for years, that I thought I just had to live my life that way from now on. I was in extreme pain all day. I laid on the floor constantly, because even laying in bed hurt. I could not even go out to dinner or have a date night with my husband because it was painful to sit. I could not sit through one meal without pain.
My extreme pain interfered with my everyday life. I had just moved from New York and was missing out on exploring my new Solana Beach neighborhood with my family. I tried physical therapy and Ibuprofen, but still nothing worked. No one could pinpoint why this was happening or why I continued to have so much pain, until I started crisis care with Dr. Lorraine at Gold Coast Chiropractic Center. She explained that I had considerable spinal compression in the nerves in my low back and neck. Not only was this causing my constant pain, but also contributing to my balance issue and lack of focus.
Since completing crisis care at Gold Coast, my quality of life has improved tremendously! I do not have pain anymore and am no longer crooked. I can now walk places without pain! This makes me more motivated to really take advantage of this beautiful place I am living in and go outside. I get to explore my surroundings pain-free, and with my family! I walk the dog on my own each day and can go out to dinner with my husband again. I have started yoga and am exercising more. All of these changes have caused me to become much more focused and positive.
I am able to enjoy my husband and son more because I don’t have pain like I used to. I can do California things now—like yoga and outdoor activities, I have even started to eat avocados! I realized that my life did NOT have to stay the way it was. I did not have to accept crippling pain every single day, as my new normal. The care at Gold Coast Chiropractic Center truly changed my life for the better.
