I have had chronic pain in my left hip for several years, going to orthopedic physicians where I received several cortisone injections which helped for a while. After wearing shape-up tennis shoes for 11 hours straight the first time I wore them, I really did my hip in. Walking from the front of Walmart to the milk caused severe pain. The orthopedist could not see me for several weeks, so desperate for some relief, I called and made an appointment with Dr. Bontrager. My first appointment was on May 23, 2011. It is now early August and I have not had hip pain for over six weeks. I NEVER saw myself going to a chiropractor, however, as I said, I was desperate. And, am I glad I went to his office; I wanted permanent relief, not something that would "mask" the pain.
I am very thankful for the treatment I have received and the fact that I can now walk as much as I want, and again am able to go on 10-12 hour shopping trips with my sisters and my daughter.
