I've been having pain in my neck, shoulders and lower back for a few days. Enough pain to warrant my first trip to a chiropractor. I called a few places near my work, in Dallas, while on the phone I was told that during my first visit I wouldn't have an adjustment bc the first visit is for an examination, then you're sent for x-rays (not at the dr's office), then adjustment during the next visit. After a 7 minute conversation, I hung up and decided to try a place closer to home IF the pain persisted after a 1-hr massage. I'm SO GLAD I did. Today I called for a new patient appointment, the front desk was so nice, they booked me right away for a same day visit. I walked into my appointment, checked in and was seen by Dr. Allam all in a matter of 15 minutes. He was extremely professional, didn't try to sell me on x-rays and instead did an examination on my spine in which he could see where I was having the most pain right on his computer screen. Then he took me outside, and explained how he would adjust me to relive pressure and ultimately realign my spine. The adjustment felt absolutely wonderful. I felt better in minutes. After my adjustment I was told to lay on another bench where I would have some therapy done on my back to help my muscles. I gotta be honest, this was the best 30-40? minutes (start to finish) of my entire day. I walked out feeling great and although I'm still a little achy, I feel SO MUCH BETTER than I did when I walked in. I can't wait for my follow up!!!
