I came to see Dr. Mossuto because I was struggling with severe back pain for about 6 years. I have scoliosis and I have been dealing with back discomfort at a very low level most of my adult life. Up until 6 years ago, I was able to participate in normal activities without disruption or serious back pain.
However, because of the increased severity and frequency of my back pain, the quality of my life was declining. It became difficult to fix my meals because I could not stand for more than 15 minutes without having to sit down. I could only purchase a few items at the grocery store at a time because I could not carry bags to my car and then into my home. I was out of breath as soon as I walked a few steps. If I lifted something too heavy, I had to sit with a heating pad and rest all the next day before the pain went away. I began using various creams that helped temporarily. Bending over became a chore. Because of these restrictions, exercise became too difficult and I suffered from lack of energy or motivation.
After coming to the clinic and receiving treatment from Dr. Anthony, I experienced remarkable improvement. The quality of my life began to increase. My energy level increased. I started going to the grocery store right after my adjustments because I felt so energized. My breathing improved. I no longer have to park in handicapped parking in front of the stores. I park far away just to get the extra exercise. I sleep better. I can now bend over and pick up things throughout the day without having to put a heating pad on. I have not used a heating pad or cream since I started chiropractic care. I can lift heavy bags without paying the price for it later. I am getting back to riding my bike, water aerobics, etc.
Although there is no cure for scoliosis, the chiropractic care that I have received and continue to receive greatly improved the quality of my life of which I am truly grateful!
