It was just a simple thing…until it wasn’t.
A talented equestrian from a young age, Stephanie had an accident while riding that left her suffering from chronic pain and fibromyalgia. After years of doctors’ visits, the diagnostic work and careful treatment of her chiropractor helped her get back on the horse and competing in championships. Read Stephanie’s story:
“I have been an avid equestrian since I was eight years old. After an accident in 2008, I found myself bed-bound and unable to do anything. Later that year, I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I started going to a chiropractor who does active release techniques (ART) and has given me a greater quality of life with minimal pain. In 2016, after dozens of doctors told me I was exaggerating, my chiropractor sent me for an MRI. I found out that I had a nerve root impingement and my discs had degenerated. With regular treatment, I continue to have the ability to follow my dreams in my sport. I am not reliant on prescribed opioid patches and I am no longer confined to my bed. I just finished a two-week national competition with many wins and a championship! I couldn’t have made it without chiropractic treatments throughout (and before, and after) my competition.”
Pain changes everything. Chiropractic care changes pain.
