My Chiropractic Story:
I was a stooped man with a bad posture. My left hip was protruded to left and positioned higher than right hip. I complained about pain in left hip as well as lumbar-sacral and front of thighs, plus heavy stiffness. Dr. Loper convinced me that subluxation on neck, back and lumbar-sacral were the main reason for the pain. While he would correct them by manipulation, he asked me to participate in the process by exercising at home to correct hip posture. I have followed his instructions to exercise to push the protruded hip to the right position. In two months, my posture became straight. I enjoy golf and singing in the chorus with less pain and discomfort than before.

Describe what conditions you had before receiving treatment.
I had pain at the left hip and low back/sacrum area, and tightness at hips and front thighs. Pain increased when standing and walking. My posture was screwed up as my left hip was bent to left and left side hip bone was higher than right.
Describe the length of these conditions and how they affected your life.
One year and a half, I could not enjoy playing golf, my favorite sport. I love singing in chorus but it was very difficult for me to sing standing or than 10 minutes due to pain.
Describe the various attempts of treatment before seeking Chiropractic care.
I saw an orthopedist who took MRI and sent me to a physical therapist. After 6 weeks of therapy, left hip pain was alleviated but low back sacrum pain remained. I was told to stretch and walk as instructed, but eventually I go the left hip pain back.
Describe how you felt about your introduction and treatment here.
When Dr. Loper told me about subluxations on the neck, upper/mid back and lumbar-sacrum areas, I agreed with some doubt. But during the process of treatment as well as exercise at home, I began to believe about the connectivity of those subluxations.
Describe how your condition responded to treatment, the conditions that have improved, and also any conditions other than what you came here for, that have gotten better.
Between treatments, I have followed Doctors instructions to exercise in order to push protruded hip toward center and upper body to left. After two months my posture looks straight and hip bones of both left and right have same heights. I still have tightness and pain but I feel the conditions are gradually improving.
Describe how your improvement through chiropractic care has affected your life.
I play 9 holes of golf with ease after taking a pain reliever. The discomfort and dull pain after golf can be managed with stretching and massaging. I am doing much better while singing in the chorus standing for more than 10 minutes.
