Trevor

I was rear-ended in an automobile accident…I had a lot of pain up and down my spine, in my neck and a lot of issues with mobility. After the initial x-rays and evaluation, the first procedure that was performed was an atlas adjustment, which I was not familiar with at the time. That one particular procedure changed everything. I felt 100% better following that. The chiropractic adjustments, the rehab, auricular therapy and massage got me from that feeling good place to a place of normalcy where I was used to feeling like that… One thing I was really concerned about was I don’t take any sort of prescription medication and Dr. Prather was adamant about seeing that through for me and being able to manage the pain without medication. I am looking forward to being able to continue strengthening my back and my neck and dealing with pain without medication.

Lisa: Trevor, what brought you into The Prather Practice?

Trevor: I was rear-ended in an automobile accident in Bloomington on the 6th of August, so I had a lot of pain up and down my spine, in my neck and a lot of issues with mobility. I had pretty much the general whiplash symptoms. In terms of what I received here, chiropractic adjustments, some physical rehab to work on strengthening and stretching the muscle tissue and I received some massage and auricular adjustments, which is kind of like acupuncture.

Lisa: What types of symptoms were you having?

Trevor: I was having a lot of pain throughout most of my body but the majority of the pain was in my neck area and my lower-back.

Lisa: Was it affecting you functionally in your daily life?

Trevor: Yes, I go through two full-time school programs and it was difficult to perform the duties that I needed to in those school programs. Sleep was also an issue. I was waking up in the evenings and having trouble getting comfortable because I couldn’t find a position to lay in that wasn’t painful.

Lisa: What did you experience with your treatments?

Trevor: After the initial x-rays and evaluation, the first procedure that was performed was an atlas adjustment, which I was not familiar with at the time. That one particular procedure changed everything. I felt 100% better following that. The chiropractic adjustments, the rehab, auricular therapy and massage got me from that feeling good place to a place of normalcy where I was used to feeling like that. I still had some pain in the beginning but it was considerably less and as we went through the treatment it became less and less until I was able to deal with it in the right way.

Lisa: You’re going to be discharged from care real soon. What have you experienced since these treatments and what are you looking forward to from these treatments:

Trevor: Coming in with a lot of pain, from that first adjustment on, reduction of pain has been the number one thing. The rehab I received gave me a lot of strength building exercises to keep me healthy and keep me from needing adjustments constantly. I know at a lot of practices you need adjustments weekly for 6, 7, 8, or 12 months but we got to a place where I could kind of deal with it. One thing I was really concerned about was I don’t take any sort of prescription medication and Dr. Prather was adamant about seeing that through for me and being able to manage the pain without medication. I am looking forward to being able to continue strengthening my back and my neck and dealing with pain without medication. It’s been really important to me.

Lisa: If someone is considering treatment here at The Prather Practice, what would you tell them?

Trevor: I would say absolutely come and get evaluated. Find out what options they have available for you. Come try to find a better way to deal with pain and start to feel better. Traditional medicine in the medical doctor/hospital sense is not something that I particularly find appealing but the practices here at The Prather Practice have been amazing for me as a holistic type-person.
