When I was sixteen I began having serious back trouble. My entire back began hurting so badly that my mother took me to the hospital. X-ray showed I had scoliosis, like the letter S. Several doctors came In to look at my x-ray. and they said that they could not believe how my spine was twisted. The pain was so bad that I even fainted on several occasions.
My doctor prescribed muscle relaxers and pain killers, but these affected me so much that I became comatose if I took them in any larger quantities. He also recommended physical therapy and I was treated almost every day for dose to two years. This helped considerably and it also made my scoliosis better but I was still always in pain. To get some relief I tried going to a total of eight different chiropractors over the next forty years. Their adjustments did sometimes give me a degree of relief but within an hour or two the pain would be back, I went to one of these chiropractors three or four times a week for over a year. Another doctor told me that my adjustments were not holding because they were not·frequent enough. When there was no improvement after he had been treating me for several months he suggested that l come in three times a day, in the hope that if I did this the adjustments would finally hold, These frequent adjustments caused my pain to become so much worse that I had to discontinue the treatments. I then started seeing a chiropractor who was using a so called “activator”, a spring loaded device which hits you gently in different places. This produced significant relief but the pain would always be back In a few hours. Sometimes the pain would be so bad that I could not breath and I passed out several times. I could not wear a bra since the pressure caused too much pain and discomfort. My pelvis was so badly turned that I always felt as if I was falling to the right and if l remained standing for more than two minutes the Pain would become so bad that I would have to sit down. This went on for close to forty five years, without a single pain free day.
In the autumn of 2007 a friend suggested I go and see Dr. Lubecki, a chiropractor in Fair 0aks. He said that Dr. Lubecki had helped him with a chronic condition no other doctor was able to do anything about. To my amazement when Dr. Lubecki adjusted my atlas vertebra and my skull my twisted pelvis immediately evened out and my scoliosis disappeared. The pain of over forty years also stopped. I tried not to but I could not help crying when I thought of all the years of suffering I had been through. Since the adjustment I have not only been pain free but I can also stand for long periods without discomfort. I no longer have the constant feeling that I am going to fall right. I can also walk without limping and my bra no longer causes me any discomfort. This is nothing short of a miracle, I thank God that I have finally found a solution to my problems and I can again lead a normal life.
