I have to say I was skeptical about chiropractic before I began to seek relief.
I messed up my back a while ago on a ab training machine at the gym. Being the stubborn male that I am I thought I could just wait for it to “go away.” It seemed to be not be getting any better or worse for a month or so until during my martial art training my injury was aggravated. Then I knew I had to get some actual help. I don’t have health insurance or a lot of money so I knew I couldn’t go to a doctor’s office to look into surgery or whatever they would want to do.
I didn’t want to blindly shop around for a chiropractor that I didn’t know I could trust or not. I knew of Dr. Cassorla through his son who I had gone to school with and he seemed like a pretty nice guy. So I got his contact and made an appointment over at his office at Back in Shape. I am so glad I did. When I first came to see him I was in excruciating pain. My lower back was super tight and the pain radiated to my shoulders and neck. He worked with my financial state and busy schedule to get me the help I needed.
Over a month and a half my pain was gone, I still had episodes from my stressful and straining job at the time but for the most part I was relieved. After my main pain source was healed we worked on my episodic pains and those to subsided. He taught me how to take care of my back through stretching, reinforcement while working and techniques on lifting.
He is very nice, personal, and educated. I felt like I was going to see a friend who was going to help me with my problems.
I also had a chronic injury in my hand due to my martial arts training in wrist locks. I didn’t know I could talk to him about pains in areas other than my back until my girlfriend at the time suggested it. Sure enough my pain there was also relieved.
I highly recommend Dr. Cassorla, Ken DC as source of all sorts of pain relief. I didn’t feel like just another patient, we would talk and discuss many different subject in society and each others’ lives.
