Chronic Neck, Shoulder, and Low Back Pain
When I came to Dr. Will, I was experiencing pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back. The Police song “every step I take, every move I make” kept playing in my mind, but with every and every move, I got pain! Along with the pain, I also had limited movement. To see left or right, I found myself turning my full upper body instead of just my head. This was a ridiculous way to live especially since I spent a lot of time over the years with the goal of staying healthy and fit.
I knew when I decided to give Dr. Will a chance that the results would not be immediate, but I made the commitment to see it through. I couldn’t be more pleased. I did see slight improvement rather quickly but each visit brought more improvement. After a few months, I am totally pain free. I can easily turn my head from side to side with good rotation and without pain. I’m back to enjoying my favorite past times of hiking and working out at the gym.
I’m continuing my maintenance visits with Dr. Will just to prevent that painful “every step I take, every move I make” condition again.
Thanks, Dr Will!
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Hi…my name is Kathy. I am 56 years old. In 1990 I had a car accident where I hurt my tailbone and shoulder/neck area. I had to quit my job as a clerical worker. One year later I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I also had nerve damage on my left side from my accident. Needless to say, I had a lot of joint pain and could hardly get up and get going. In 15 years I gained 100 lbs and felt like I was 80 years old instead of mid 50’s.
Over the years I had become discourage with doctors and chiropractors. When a relative of mine suggested I give Dr. Will a try I was skeptical. I was also 1 hour and 20 minutes away from where his office is. She was getting such good results though that I thought I would at least hear what he had to say.
My first visit was terrible. When I closed my eyes I almost fell over because my balance was so bad. He couldn’t even get a reflex when he used the little hammer on both knees. Dr. Will thought he could help me though.
That was the end of February 2009. After one month I could stand with my eyes closed and not fall over. By May I felt so could I did something I haven’t felt like doing since my 30’s. I joined a local gym. Even though my CFS lets me know that I still have it, I can still exercise and lift weights for an hour without it flaring up. I have lost 20 pounds, though that part is coming down slowly, mainly because I have a problem eating six times a day to keep up my metabolism, too busy. It doesn’t matter though. Last week I climbed two flights of stairs and was not even winded when I got to the top.
All I can say is thank you Dr. Will. The hour and 20 minute drive is worth it to feel this much better. I still have a ways to go but what an improvement.
On a friend’s recommendation I came to see Dr. Will for a consultation regarding my Fibromyalgia.
I was bedridden 80-90% of the time with pain and fatigue. My first adjustment concerned me and my family. We all thought I would be in bed for days recovering – I was vertical the next day!
I have noticed a steady and substantial improvement over the last 5 months. Before starting care I would take 2-3 pain medications per day. I have not taken or needed any prescription pain medication for more than 3 months! And I’m looking forward to my European vacation.
I would not be able to fully enjoy this trip without Dr. Will’s help!
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue
It all began when I was 21 years old. For weeks, my body hurt all over and I could hardly get out of bed. I was diagnosed with a lymph node infection related to scratches from a kitten. When the doctor told me I had cat scratch fever, I thought “Sure I do, cat scratch fever is a song not a real illness.” I had no way of knowing at that time, cat scratch fever would become the first of many traumatic and stressful events sending my body spiraling into a lifetime of chronic pain and fatigue. I never fully recovered and before long I found myself going endlessly from doctor to doctor. A few years later, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (FMS) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
Since being diagnosed with CFS and FMS over 20 years ago, I have relentlessly tried various alternative treatments and physical therapy programs. I even purchased dozens of self help books, all without success. My quality of life was measured in the number good verses bad days. With each medical visit, I found myself being treated for the individual symptoms usually in the form of an additional drug to add to my already growing collection. In most cases, the side effects of the medications created more problems than I had to begin with. I had only hoped for a doctor that would treat the “whole” person rather than the symptom of the day.
And here my success story begins.
In July 2009, I was experiencing muscle fatigue and stiffness in my neck. My energy level was totally drained and I was having a difficult time working a full day. I spent my weekends in the bed while my daughter watched TV. I walked into the clinic, hoping to get a couple of adjustments and go on my way. After reviewing my history and conditions, Dr. Will asked me to return for an extensive evaluation. He offered a new and different kind of treatment plan using oxygen based therapy and unilateral adjustments. I was very skeptical at first but figured I had nothing to lose.
Faithfully, I kept all my visits with Dr. Will and did exactly as he said. We addressed each chronic symptom I had experienced in the past or was currently experiencing such as sleep, energy, memory and concentration issues. Combining the treatments with nutritional supplements and exercises, I began to notice a difference in the first 6 weeks. I could hardly believe it. Overall I began feeling better; my good days were out numbering the bad ones and improving with each week.
It has now been four months since I first began the program, I can truly say Oxygen based therapy and Unilateral adjustments have been a life changing experience for me. More importantly, I finally found a doctor to treat the “whole” person and not just the symptoms. I can sleep at night and work a full day without any problem. With the help of my primary physician, I have been able to eliminate the medications. My energy level has substantially increased and I am able to exercise 5 out of 7 days a week. Most of all, I am able to spend quality time with my daughter on the weekends. I know I can’t get my life back for the years I have lost to FMS and CFS. It would be nice to say I feel 21 again but I can’t. However, I do feel 10 years younger. And from what I hear on all the talk shows, the 40’s are the new 30’s!
I began treatment for chronic fatigue with Dr. Will Mosbey in early May of 2009. In less than two months, I have had a noticeable increase in my energy levels and am much more functional. Previously, I would have many days where I was too exhausted to even get dressed, knowing I would have to return to bed throughout the day. I would rarely have two days in a row in which I had enough energy to be functional.
Now, for most of my days, I am not only functional, but have great energy and I am able to run my home-based business, for which I am thankful.
