Athletic Performance / Aches and Pains
I am now 18 years old, and I have been an athlete for as long as I can remember. With being so active almost 365 days a year, I have acquired my fair share of aches and pains. The doctors and physical therapists that I have seen throughout the years have all wanted to help me out, but I never received any type of caring and treatment like what I received with Wholistic Wellness. On my very first visit with Dr. Cooper, she sat me down along with my mom and took a solid 20-30 minutes to explain to us how the body functions together and how slight variations in the structure can make a huge impact on our body’s potential to function (something no other doctor had ever taken the time to do). I had come to see Dr. Cooper for a pulled hamstring. I had pulled the same muscle the previous year to about the same severity, and I was extremely skeptical because it had taken me about two months to get it healed with the physical therapist I had been seeing. But, this time was a little different. There was only two weeks until my district track meet, which I had to run in to qualify for state. After my first visit with Dr. Cooper, I left her office feeling twenty times better than I ever could’ve imagined. I was still extremely reluctant to believe I could be back running in time, but that all changed when I was able to suit up and run in the meet two weeks later. Until now, I had never even considered or heard of the use of chiropractic as a physical therapy method. The only use I knew for chiropractic was to help people with bad backs. Now, my eyes have been opened to the wonders that they can do, and I see no need in seeing a doctor/physical therapist for any injuries I come across because I know who can help me the most. Thanks Dr. Cooper, you have really opened my eyes to something I don’t know how I used to live without.
