I survived a horrific automobile accident on May 19, 1980 when I was 20 years old. I was driving my car in a thunder storm when I swerved out of the way of another car that pulled in front of mine. My car hit the median and rolled end over end three times, throwing me out the back windshield into oncoming traffic in the opposite lane. Tragically, I was not wearing my seat belt. My body was thrown onto the asphalt, breaking the left side of my jaw and hip. I had such a severe concussion, my eyes were out of alignment and my face swelled beyond recognition. I survived the accident, but endured chronic, debilitating headaches,neck,back and hip pain, and unrelenting sciatic nerve pain for the next 25 years.
On March 24, 2005 my husband drove me for a consultation with Dr. Bontrager in hopes that he could help me with my chronic pain. It was to be a life altering decision. Dr. Bontrager and his staff were very professional and compassionate. I began regular chiropractic therapy and adjustments and noticed my pain was becoming more tolerable. I was managing my pain with less medication. I was able to exercise, sit and stand for extended periods of time and turn my head without stiffness and pain. I even learned how to water ski! I was amazed that my chronic headaches were almost non existent. I was having more good days than bad ones.
It has now been over four years since my first chiropractic therapy and treatment. I am forever grateful to Dr. Bontrager for improving the condition and quality of my life. Thank you Dr. Bontrager for changing my life and helping me after years of suffering. God bless you!
