Martha W. - Laser Therapy and Chiropractic Patient
My name is Martha Whiles and I found Natural Horizons on the website because I was looking for a different way of helping back pain. A friend of mine had told me that there was some kind of laser therapy or something that could be done and I was slated for surgery and so I just started looking and I came to Natural Horizons and found Dr. Verma [ph], so I do decompression, spinal decompression and I have not had to have surgery. When I first came to Dr. Verma I was facing surgery because I couldn’t live a day without pain and so it had limited my activities. It limited walking, driving, standing, sitting. Everything was limited because of pain, so it’s nice not to take my pain medications and it’s nice to be able to exercise. It’s nice to be able to play with the grandchildren. It’s nice to be able to work. I think being able to do that without medication and surgery is a big deal, a real big deal.
Coming from a medical background being a registered nurse chiropractic is… we’re not taught to be the first choice and so since experiencing what chiropractic can do and especially the decompression therapy, spinal decompression I think I've told all my friends to come here. Several of them have come. They’ve watched me do decompression. They’ve tried different things, so I would just always advocate to seek out other ways, nonsurgical ways first, not that surgery is always unnecessary. Sometimes it very necessary and Dr. Verma would be the first chiropractor to tell you when you actually need surgery, so I respect him for that and I have no qualms at all bringing my family and friends here, so I would just highly recommend to everybody. Try it. If you don’t like it there is nothing lost, but there is everything to gain.
