Patient of the Month

Each month, we will highlight a different concern or condition that chiropractic care can help!

July 2017
Torticollis – Miles J.

Miles J“My name is Miles and I have suffered from a condition called torticollis since birth. Torticollis has made me see the world around me sideways, but after visiting BFC, I am seeing the world around me at a much better angle.

After just one visit at BFC I can move my head in ways that I have never been able to in my whole 9 months. My sleeping has improved as my muscles have relaxed and I can hold my head straight now so the world around me looks completely different.

I think every person, big or small, should visit the chiropractor; it really has changed my life and I’m sure it can change yours.”

Balance Issues – Briggs C.

“After years of the usual remedy of pills, prescriptions, and multiple visits to doctor’s offices I had had enough. With references from 3 people who see the chiropractor, I scheduled with BFC.

The 1st visit was really getting to know me and get a good understanding on my issues (low back pain, neck pain, and balance issues). The staff really took their time in explaining all aspects of chiropractic care to me. The staff recommended a treatment plan specific to my problems and then wanted to check my progress.

At my first progress check the differences were amazing. I was experiencing lower levels of pain and had regained my balance. Now through regular maintenance care I have regained approximately 90% of my normal activities. I highly recommend anyone with similar issues to mine to try BFC, they don’t disappoint.”

TMJ – Randy R.

“One evening last July, I experienced an acute case of TMJ following a simple yawn. Trying to close my mouth without severe discomfort was difficult. The right side of my jaw was very tender to the touch and my bite was off.

My first thought was to contact BFC. I had been a patient in the past and they always treated me as family and helped me live a better more comfortable life. After my first visit the pain was noticeably less and only a few subsequent visits and my pain was completely gone. I am happy to report that I have suffered no recurrence since.

I have been a long time believer in regular chiropractic care for optimal health. The care I have received from BFC and the staff have only served to reaffirm my conviction. I greatly appreciate the attention I receive each visit, whether I am being seen for a particular condition or simply health maintenance. My thanks for BFC and all the staff for the role each one has played in providing me the opportunity to enjoy a healthier life.”

Flexibility – Brian B.

“Constant aching in my low back, shoulder, and hands led me to try chiropractic. With all the restricted motion and flexibility, I thought old age had finally crept up on me. My aches and pains kept me from playing at a high level of professional golf along with missing activities I enjoy with my wife; gardening, hiking, farming.

The most remarkable thing that I have found since beginning care is it wasn’t old age at all. Within my treatment plan all my discomfort has diminished, my range of motion is back to normal, and I am standing straighter than I have in a really long time. The enjoyment of my life has been given back to me not to mention an added 15yds to my golf swing. My focus has increased in professional golf because I can pay attention to my game instead of constantly thinking of the pain.

I would seek out chiropractic care first before seeing a general doctor to see if the relationship of your back and body can be taken care of holistically instead of simply treating the symptoms.”

Whiplash – Vicky C.

vicky“I started care at BFC because of severe neck and shoulder pain that never seemed to ease up. I also couldn’t remember the last time that my head didn’t hurt due to the neck pain. The pain was very limiting not only at the gym but in my everyday tasks such as washing my hair or changing clothes.

After beginning care, I no longer feel the constant neck and shoulder pain. The daily headache is gone. I no longer stress about taking a shower because of the pain it will cause, and I’m no longer restricted to the type of exercises I do to strengthen my body. I feel amazing, the lack of pain has also renewed my energy levels.

I would advise anyone dealing with similar issues to seek out and make the time for the care. The education provided to me about my condition has been phenomenal! It has truly made a very large impact on how I feel, both physically and mentally. I can’t thank BFC enough.”

Vertigo – Paula L.

paula-l“Coming to BFC I had a previous diagnosis of postural vertigo caused by allergies. MRI’s and CT’s ruled out any other cause of the dizziness. With occasional nausea associated with vertigo resulted in missed work and the inability to drive. The episodes where interfering with my life.

After beginning treatment, the episodes have almost completely stopped and with an adjustment I am immediately relieved on the spot. My lifestyle has completely changed with no worry of a surprise attack and days of me staying home. The lack of confidence and peace of mind have been eliminated by the fact that I chose BFC. I am so thrilled to have eliminated this problem. The staff at BFC were able to calm the fears I had when choosing this route of treatment.

People suffering from vertigo should make BFC their first choice when selecting a treatment. The education provided at BFC helps the patient understand your problem and all treatments. Don’t suffer another minute when you can be helped at BFC. You won’t be disappointed and you will feel better than you ever have in your life. I tell everyone that I meet about BFC. It’s true, their patients say they are the best”

Loss of Energy – Paula B.

paula-b“My original complaint was pain, aching, discomfort between my shoulder blades, arms, hands, neck, and lower back. Constant discomfort was affecting every area of my life including my business. I was irritable, had no energy, couldn’t sleep but a few hours a night due to numbness and weakness in my arms and hands.

Since beginning care all my symptoms had been relieved. My irritability and depression have lifted, and I feel a great sense of wellbeing. I am no longer in pain and I am sleeping soundly throughout the night. The numbness in my arms and hands is gone and I am surprised at how much strength I have now. My energy levels are up and I am now getting things done that I have put off for way too long. I am a new person and I am enjoying my life again.

I would encourage anyone to seek help as you do not have to live in constant pain and irritability. I would recommend making an appointment with BFC. The staff is dedicated to helping everyone feel better and will listen carefully, and create the perfect plan of action specifically for your problem. You will feel right at home. Make an appointment now, it will change your life.”

Low Back Pain – Brent S.

brent-s“Before BFC, bending over and standing up straight caused me tremendous pain in my low back. Every day activities were difficult to perform. After dealing with the pain for an extended time I decided to try chiropractic.

Since beginning care my life has changed only for the better. I am no longer in pain and I’m back to living my normal life. I can exercise again without excruciating pain.

After seeing my results my only advice to someone with the same condition is go to BFC, the staff are great, and it works.”

Asthma – Dana H.

asthma-dana“Having asthma is a scary thing, one moment you are breathing fine and the next you are struggling to breathe. Medications, both long term and rescue inhalers, become a part of your daily life.

I found that I immediately began breathing normally when my spine was properly aligned. I can now tell when my next appointment is close due to labored breathing.

I have told my best friend about how chiropractic adjustments have helped me with my symptoms. I would recommend Brannon Family Chiropractic to anyone who has allergies or asthma to seek chiropractic care.”

Scoliosis – Ashley D.

scoliosis

“After having 2 children my low back and neck pain became increasingly difficult to ignore. I had suffered from severe scoliosis for 25+ years it was so bad that I was required to wear a back brace as a child. Surgery was an option but I opted to live with the pain. It affected my daily life to the point that holding my children and sleeping were both problematic for me.

The staff here were careful to diagnose and suggest a treatment method for my condition, other offices I had been to had never given me hope to do more than mange my pain. After my 1st week of treatment, I noticed improvement in my muscle tenseness and sleeping pattern. 2 months into treatment my husband even commented on how he could see a visible improvement with the curve in my back. What I had lived with for so long had improved in only a matter of months.

I highly recommend BFC and am extremely grateful for the expertise and encouragement I have received along my path to a better quality of life. Life without constant pain can be and is a reality for me; with the help of this excellent staff.”

Headaches – Caleb S.

Caleb-S

“I had frequent headaches, they were really bad. Going in public was hard for me because crowded places were too loud. That made going places painful.

My headache attacks are rare now. Chiropractic has helped me out a lot. Now, I can go a lot of places I couldn’t go before.

For anyone suffering from headaches, I would tell them to come to BFC for help. I think they’d be helped.”

Dysphagia – Danielle P.

Danielle-P“I had trouble swallowing for years. It didn’t matter if it was food or a drink; I often had to swallow more than once to get it down. I was constantly choking; it was very uncomfortable and sometimes a bit embarrassing.

After following the recommendations from the staff at BFC I can now eat and drink without the fear of choking. Now I’m no longer embarrassed out in public and I’m not spitting my drinks all over my dates.

In the beginning of my care I didn’t mention my symptoms to my doctor. I knew what I was experiencing wasn’t normal but it wasn’t until after my trouble swallowing went away that I learned what I had been experiencing for years is actually a disorder called dysphagia. Chiropractic adjustments will help with symptoms other than pain!!!”
