Esther: Before I came into the chiropractor to get aligned and adjustments and get my life on track, I could not go up and down the steps without going sideways and one step at a time. Now, I can go up and down the steps normal. I do hold onto the handrail, but it's normal and I haven't done that for years and I'm really excited about that.
Interviewer: Good. I'm so glad to hear.
Esther: So that's just one of the big changes.
Interviewer: Well, that's great. Any other changes you'd like to talk about?
Esther: Yeah, there's a lot of pain in my lower back that is slowly subsiding and down the right buttocks, down the whole leg, the sciatic nerve on the right side. It's getting to the point where I have very little pain and it's getting duller all the time. And I'm just feeling all over really great compared to what I did when I first came in here in November and I'm thankful.
Interviewer: Good. I'm really glad to hear that, and thank you for taking the time out to talk with us today.
Esther: You're welcome.
Well, I started chiropractic care because I was having pains in my arms and hands, wasn't able to lift anything, grasp anything, and it was very, very painful. I couldn't do everyday things. Since I've been coming to Dr. Rashidian, my mobility has been restored. I can lift things. I can do normal things without even thinking. So, I'm feeling a 110% better than when I started, and I would recommend to anyone who wants to feel better in your life, to do the normal things you normally do, come see Dr. Rashidian.
Interviewer: So, Miss Teresa, what was it that made you want to start coming to get adjusted?
Teresa: Well, I was at hot mess actually. I had a lot of problems. My hip was in pain for a year, and I couldn't walk up and down stairs or get in and out of my car or roll over in bed without it hurting and without literally picking up my leg and lifting it. So, that was a big thing. And I had a stiff neck, bad range of motion, and knee problems.
Interviewer: Wow, and how have you been feeling since you've been getting adjusted?
Teresa: I was so shocked that literally, within two weeks all three of those problems were almost completely resolved.
Teresa: My hip problem was a yearlong problem, and it was gone in two weeks.
Interviewer: Wow that's so cool.
Teresa: I know.
Interviewer: What would you say to someone who's thinking about getting adjusted?
Teresa: I would say absolutely do it. I had no idea that you could get resolutions so quickly and almost so completely, so fast.
Interviewer: Thank you so much.
