A Doctor’s Confession to Bullhead City
And why, despite all, I still do what I do.
Confessions are tough. Real tough. But, sometimes a confession can set the record straight, and I want to give credit where credit is
due. Before I talk about my confession, though, let me say a few other things first.
“Years ago something happened to me that changed my life forever. Let me tell my story.”
I remember it like it was yesterday. I’m in college, and having a blast, I’m also studying hard. Life is really good. But that’s when it hit me…
I start to have this terrible pain that goes from my lower back down into my right leg. The medical doctor tells me that my condition is called sciatica’. All they can do is give me muscle relaxers and pain pills to take. I even try physical therapy, but nothing seems to help. I’m frustrated. I just can’t make myself accept that the rest of my life is going to be like this. But, listen to this…
Finally, this friend of mine convinces me to give their doctor a try. The new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then “adjusts” my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief and within a couple of weeks, the awful pain is gone! Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? It works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other “miracles” I see in his office, that I decide to go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened!
It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their sciatic problems. Also they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, carpal tunnel syndrome, backaches, ear infections, asthma, allergies, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries just to name a few.
Here’s what some of my patients had to say:
“My husband injured his back in a fall nine years ago. He had not been without some back pain since that time. Now, after treatment at Barnard Chiropractic, his back pain is gone.
“I had an extremely painful shoulder. After just a few weeks of therapy, it is almost completely pain free. Had I gone to my medical doctor, I would have almost certainly been treated with cortisone shots to mask the pain, but not necessarily heal the problem.” – Jim and Penny Lampman
Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. My confession is that I’ve never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure, and the body responds by healing itself. We get tremendous results, It’s as simple as that!
Being a chiropractor can be tough, because there’s a host of so-called experts out there. They tell people a lot of things that are just plain ridiculous about my profession. But the studies speak for themselves, like the Virginia study that showed over 90% of patients who saw a chiropractor were satisfied with their results. That’s just incredible!
Forty-eight million Americans no longer have health insurance, and those who do have found that their benefits are reduced. That’s where chiropractic comes in. Many people find that they actually save money on their health care expenses by seeing a chiropractor. Another way to save.. studies show that chiropractic may double your immune capacity, naturally and without drugs. The immune system fights colds, the flu, and other sicknesses. So you may not be running off to the doctor as much. This is especially important if you are self-employed.
You benefit from an Amazing Offer… Look, it shouldn’t cost you an arm and a leg to correct your health. You are going to write a check to someone for your health care expenses, you may as well write one for a lesser amount for chiropractic. When you bring in this article by the end of the month you will receive my entire new patient exam for $29. That’s with consultation, exam, any necessary x-rays..the whole ball of wax. This exam could cost you $195 elsewhere.
Great care at a great fee…Please, I hope that there is no misunderstanding about quality of care just because I have a lower
exam fee. You’ll get great care at a great fee. My qualifications…I’m a graduate of Cleveland Chiropractic College. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to the elderly, and have even traveled to Mexico on a mission trip when those people needed care. I just have that low exam fee to help more people who need care.
