April and Manuel are two patients who have been treated first hand by Dr. Jimenez. They share their stories about how their pain had taken joy out of their lives and how Dr. Jimenez helped restore their health and their hope. Low back pain can be caused by an injury, misstep, or by lack of core muscles. There are a thousand different ways the low back is targeted and many Americans suffer from some degree of low back pain. April shares how she grew up performing a variety of different sports and how it impacted her. Playing multiple sports is great for you, but it can cause havoc on the low back. Her low back pain also caused her to have cramps in her feet and neck. April mentions that her pain was not just due to an injury but that she holds a lot of tension as well. Chiropractic adjustments help to release the tension in the neck and back to provide optimal relief. The other individual who has been a patient of Dr. Jimenez is Manuel. He shares that he has a two-year-old who requires a lot of time, attention, and physical demands as far as changing diapers, playing, picking him up, etc. These activities may seem simple, but for someone who is suffering from low back pain, they can be excruciating. Manuel drives trucks for a living so sitting down for long periods of time is a job requirement. This can also bring on back discomfort and cause uncomfortableness in the joints. After both of these patients had by treated by Dr. Jimenez, they were able to get back to the things they love and enjoy without pain. It may not seem like much, but living in pain takes more out of an individual that many people realize. Back pain can be alleviated with the right help from the right doctor. – Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach
[00:00:22] April Hermosillo. My name is Manuel I love to work out, be fit, hike and eat lots of healthy food.
[00:00:33] I do truck driving for a living. I have a 2 year old son.
[00:00:37] I have a lot of neck and lower back pain that causes a lot of feet cramps.I visited because I had a hit and run accident.
[00:00:48] Of course, my back was just not doing very well. Started having pain. I was like I couldn’t even sleep anymore because I couldn’t lay down without having pain.
[00:00:59] I’ve had back tension and neck problems. So due to being an athlete and playing volleyball, soccer, basketball, gymnastics. So that’s where all those amazing symptoms came from.
[00:01:14] Well, it affected me quite a bit because as I mentioned, I drive for a living. I couldn’t sit for long periods of time without having to take some sort of pain medication. I have a two year old son also, so it was hard for me to know to play with him like I regularly do, pick him up and stuff like that. I couldn’t do that at all, actually.
[00:01:37] I try not to let it affect me. But, you know, while driving and just standing too long, I do get a lot of cramps in my feet and my neck.
[00:01:47] So I wasn’t even getting able to get any sleep because I couldn’t lay down. I would be just laying down for hours, trying to get comfortable or comfortable, just trying to make sure that I could lay down without pain.
[00:02:00] My treatment with Mr. Jimenez is has tremendously helped me. It gives me just a sense of relief, knowing that I can come and see him and all of his employees and great masseuses and everyone can just release all the tension.
[00:02:16] It just started out slow. I started feeling a little better, but the longer I kept coming, the less pain I would have and the more I would be able to move around.
[00:02:27] I would absolutely recommend Mr. Jimenez to everyone. Thank you, Mr. Jimenez, for everything that you have done for my family and I. You literally have always been there for us and I am so grateful for everyone in your practice and we love you and really appreciate you and thank you for always having my back.
