Posture Correction and Pain Relief

Don't like back aches? Don't like your posture? I didn't like either and decided it was time to make a change. The beginning of my journey started at the Speidel Clinic, doing their rehab program and getting adjusted by Dr. Ryan Smart.

Every day I would do exercises that stretched my muscles, mobilized my back, and gave me a sense of relief from the debilitating low-back pain I was experiencing. After a handful of visits, and some diligence in doing my rehab exercises at home, I found my back pain diminishing and my back was feeling even stronger than before. To give you an idea of what I'm talking about.. I recently moved into a new home; loaded and unloaded 20 boxes and two mattresses with the help of one other person. After a whole day of moving I was exhausted and incredibly sore. The pain worsened the next day, and I had a hard time functioning. I decided to make an extra visit to Dr. Smart for an adjustment and he informed me to lightly continue my rehab at home. After a day and a half my body was completely back to normal; it felt as if I didn’t even injure myself. My recovery time increased dramatically, and I am so thankful for that.

Once I finished my treatment plan, Dr. Smart took more x-rays to review my progress, and in doing so he found that the "reverse curve" that was starting in my mid-neck was not only halted, but my entire neck was gaining its normal curve back. This was the moment when I realized change and relief are possible; it just takes time, patience, and perseverance.
