Treating Chronic Back, Hip, Leg Pain, and Depression Success Story

Chronic Back, Hip, and Leg Pain and Depressed from Sleep Deprivation.

I would like to add my name and my story to those other grateful patients who have been helped by the advice and hands of Dr. Sharon Lark. I don’t want to exaggerate the ways Dr. Sharon has helped me so I will not try to explain every detail of all my symptoms. I will attempt to express the major ones.

For 3 years I lived with chronic back, hip, and leg pain. I was getting only 2-3 hours of continuous sleep per night. Because of this situation, I was very depressed and suffered from sleep deprivation. After lying, sitting, or standing for any length of time, I would have numbing in my left leg so severe I wanted to cry and many times I did. I also had headaches and took aspirin every day. I thought my headaches were due to lack of sleep or because of my constant pain. I had all the medical tests and even endured shots into my spine. After all that, the only advice I received from the medical doctors was to take pain medication, very strong painkillers. I refused.

I then tried massage and acupuncture. That made me feel wonderful but offered no long-term pain reduction results.

A wonderful person suggested that I make an appointment with Lark Chiropractic and thank God I was listening.

Right from the beginning I felt better and within weeks my headaches were gone. I am now able to sleep longer and on my left side, which I have not been able to do for years. I have joined a gym and am able to complete the simple exercises. I still have discomfort and even some pain in my left hip and leg but I now know what to do to recover. I have purchased a cushion for my chair at work and do my wiggle exercises several times during the day. I also have one at home and would recommend them to everyone.

I am a person who needs things simple, fast, and reasonable. This, I feel is the approach of Dr. Sharon Lark. She has never told me to stop doing activities I love such as gardening. I have modified that activity and do my warm-ups before any exercises. Thank you Dr. Sharon Lark for your concerns for me and for all the help you have provided. I feel I am getting my life back.

Insomnia Induced by Chronic Pain Success Story

 

Loss of Sleep Due to Pain

“Life is the first gift, Love is the second, and Understanding the third.” –Marge Piercy

In my case the understanding part has come late in life. I am a 44 year old mother of 2 small children and only recently have I come to understand that health is ‘central’ to life and love… Without it you are left short. Busy with career and children, I neglected my health for years. Along with a chronic intestinal problem I suffered from neck and backaches and lack of sleep because of constant  repositioning.

I began visiting Lark Chiropractic and started and exercise program at the gym to strengthen my back and neck muscles. Exam and x-rays confirmed my poor posture and arthritic. My neck and head were bent forward and shoulders were rolled forward and down.

After treatment regime that included head weights, spinal molding, adjustments, and exercise. I began to see improvement. At 2 months, I am pain free. My posture and mobility are improved and I am sleeping through the night. The work at home is as important as the office visits. I understand that “correcting” spinal problems is a process that will take time. There are no “quick fixes” treatments for these conditions.

I appreciate the patients and grace that this office has shown in the disruption from toddlers. This is the only way I could get the help I needed. Thanks Dr. Sharon!

Migraine Success Story

Migraines

I started receiving care from Lark Chiropractic due to sever migraines. After one and a half months of care I no longer have migraines and my headaches are tolerable enough that I am no longer on any kind of medication for pain. Also I no longer am in need of sleeping pills at night to be able to relax enough to sleep. I am looking forward to my future treatment and correcting my spine and neck to be fully well again. It is a wonderful feeling to be drug free and pain free after 5 years!

Good luck to all else who wish to be drug free and pain free. Do the problem, it works!

Low Energy Success Story

No Energy

Imagine waking up every morning tired and in pain. That’s exactly what I used to do. The back of my neck would be stiff and hurting. My lower back would be hurting and I would be tired after tossing and turning all night trying to find a comfortable position to sleep in. Not exactly the ideal way to start a new day.

After just one visit to Lark Chiropractic, I felt like a new person. Dr. Lark did a complete examination, and x-rays showed exactly what and where my problem was. We began treatment right away to alleviate the immediate pain, and are now working on correcting the condition that  caused the pain in the first place.

I am happy to say that the stuff and painful neck is no longer a part of my life. I am able to get a good night’s sleep and wake up feeling rested and refreshed. But the best part is that as we continue treatment, I have less and less pain, and it’s so much easier to get through easy day.
