I was first treated by a chiropractor when I was twenty-two years old. I’m now sixty-four and over the past 40 years I’ve moved around quite a bit and I’ve been treated by several chiropractors. The treatments were always for back pain and the treatment I received from all of the chiropractors was good – meaning my pain lessened over time.
However, my experience with Rassel Chiropractic has been very different. When I first saw them I was just a few months past my 61st birthday and I was, quite frankly, not in good shape at all. I went in to see them primarily because of a sore hip and leg, but really I was sore all over. I couldn’t walk a few blocks without feeling bad. I had a poor appetite, was underweight, had a sallow complexion, smoked half a pack of cigarettes every day and just didn’t feel good in general. I’d been in that space for nearly 5 years. Over those years I’d seen another chiropractor and even had acupuncture every month.
Dr. Charles and Dr. Ian convinced me that I needed more than just a few adjustments to treat my hip and leg. They put me on a complete program. One year later, I was walking over a mile a day (half of it up pretty steep hills), and was doing Yoga and strengthening exercises for an hour and a half a day. I was also going boogie-boarding in the ocean for an hour twice a week or more, (yes even in the winter).
I haven’t had a cigarette in more than 2 years, and I’ve added an hour a day in the gym 5 days a week to my exercise routine. I used to take anti-inflammatories (e.g Advil) way too often. For a few years I was taking 4 of them twice a day. I just realized the other day that I have only taken one of those in the past 3 months!
I continue to see them regularly and I think they are absolutely excellent chiropractors. They’ve been much more effective at improving the quality of my life than anything else I’ve tried, (and I’ve tried a lot over the course of my life!), and I am just happy as I can be to write a testimonial for them.
