I was thrown from a horse several years ago and was in a bad bad way. I knew my back and neck were injured and my family wanted me to go to the ER. I did and they really just gave me pain pills and sent me home. i got so loopy on the pills I didn't feel anything and just wanted to sleep all the time. After awhile the pills just stopped helping and i didn't want to keep taking them as i was afraid i would get hooked or something but most of all they just made me sleepy. I thought maybe i should go to a Chiropractor but didn't know of anyone. My friend Ginger told me about Dr Quackenbush in Anthem. I said really Dr QUACKENBUSH. Well Ginger actually went with me to my appointment I was so afraid of going. Dr Q as they refer to him at the office really put me at ease because of how thorough he was, he asked me about the accident and was particularly interested in what my body went through when i hit the ground. He asked me how things had changed in the 2 years since my accident and what I thought was wrong! he did a lot of tests of my spine and muscles. He scanned my spine and muscles with an electronic device and took a fresh set of x rays. Then he told me he did not know if he could help me or even if he could accept me for care! He wanted to look at the x rays and asked me to come back the next day. When I returned i was relieved that he could help and he explained to me what was wrong with my back and neck. The scans were very helpful in understanding how the injury was affecting my whole being. That was a relief because I thought I was going to have to live with the pain for the rest of my life. I am about half way through my treatment program and haven't felt this good in years!! I would recommend Dr Quackenbush to all my friends and family.
I remember when I had to visit two hospitals this certain night because I had no idea what was going on with me, I had the worst pain you can imagine in the inside of my head it was worse then a migraine just didnt know what it was. The both doctors i saw that night said it was just a spasm on my neck and was just causing a headache, they gave me drug pills to put me to sleep and thats about all, I was told to take these pills for the neek week, I just couldnt take it no more so I decided to listen to my mom and visit a Chiropractor, Thank God I found Pebble Creek Wellness Center just around the corner from my house, Dr. James there just knew what to do for me and I not kidd you, I was able to walk out of there like if nothing was ever wrong with me, I was more then happy I listened and went to the perfect place. If not i would of still been taking those pills, sleeping in thru days and suffering thru the pain...Dr.James is just the Best, and not to mentioned they have a massage therapists who is on the role, and is just the best ever. You definetly need to visit there amazing office...There great and make you feel at home with their kindness and warmth.
I am scared to death of chiropractors. Never on this earth would I go... My doctor said I had "mus-co-skeletal" issues and was giving my muscle relaxers. I was having trouble working, and you really should not be driving on muscle relaxer! I went to a regular chiropractor, finally out of desperation and it was an awful experience. I did not even finish the session, I was so scared! Then I heard about the Activator Method, and still scared, I decided to try it so I could get off the prescription drugs. It was the best thing that could have happened to me. There is no popping or cracking contortions involved. Dr. Petermann made me feel better almost instantly AND he is a real nice guy who cares about me. Also, his price per visit (I have no insurance for this) is lower than other doctors in this area. I am pleased to say that because of this method, I am no longer on drugs and look forward to my maintenance visit that are reasonably priced. I highly recommend Dr. Petermann to anyone who needs chiropractic care. Especially if you have a fear of this type of treatment.
