Before seeing Dr. Matthew, I had several complaints. First and foremost, I had lower and middle back pain especially while standing for more than an hour, cooking and doing household cleaning. I was very lethargic, tired and sleepy in the afternoons. I have had an S-scoliosis very early on since I was a child, but it was discovered only at the age of 13. This caused me to have a noticeable uneven posture. I also had lumbar pain as an adult, especially after giving birth and during my periods. I was very sensitive and highly emotional. I worried a lot and had negative thoughts that would come and go. Overall, I was uptight and not relaxed when faced with difficult situations and became easily agitated.
The first session of adjustment resulted in a very deep, relaxed state of sleep. I feel more positive as far as my outlook on life. I no longer have back pain. I am able to take long walks in nature, cook for a long time and sit in front of the TV pain-free. I am very relaxed throughout the day. I take things with a pinch of salt. My mood swings are less now. Into my 12th session, I have mental clarity and better focus on simple tasks such as reading. Rather than placing others’ needs first, I can say that I am more able to look at myself and detect what needs of mine must be taken care without any guilt!
