"Achieved My Lifetime Goal"
Over the years, I have had problems with my back. I have taken all kinds of medicine to help "mask" the pain. The pain would go away, finally, but would reoccur from time to time. I increased my exercising activity and that seemed to strengthen my muscles. My back problem still came back on occasions. If I lifted something wrong, it would "go out" on me and it would sometimes take weeks or months for it to subside. I felt like I would have to live with it forever.
In March of 2001, I first went to Dr. Moore's practice because I had strained my back once again. I was in desperation this time, because I was at the end of a 10-week training program to run the Boston Marathon. I had qualified just 3 months earlier at California International Marathon and this was my lifetime goal. Running Boston Marathon was a goal I had set for myself even before I ran my first marathon in 1999. The Boston Marathon was only 3 weeks away and I could not run! It hurt too much. A good friend had been seeing Dr. Moore on a regular basis and would tell me that he really helper her out. I called her in desperation one day and asked her for his phone number. I was so injured that I had to lift my left leg into the car. I just knew that Boston was not going to happen.
The first visit to Dr. Moore's office, I was so thrilled! I immediately felt relief from the first adjustment. Because I had ran with my back out, I had strained the muscles in my hip, but the back pain was much, much better. After several trips to see Dr. Moore over that next couple of weeks, I continued to see improvement.
Three weeks later, I was able to run Boston Marathon and since that time, I continue to see Dr. Moore for minor adjustments. Each time, I leave this office feeling "new" again, and have continued running.
I have gone back two more times and ran the Boston Marathon, and I thank Dr. Moore for making that happen. I'm 53 years old and feel 20 years younger. I owe that to Dr. Moore. My quality of life is so much better now. My back muscles are stronger and with continued occasional visits, I have little problems with my back and neck.
