It Keeps Me Going
This husband and wife team are like family to me (and to all of their patients)! Their combined knowledge and differing techniques gives the patient the best results in a manner that allows for the patients' personal preference of adjustment technique. The key is to find the style and technique that suits you so you'll keep coming back (no pun intended) to maintain your spinal health. Regular adjustments by Dr. Sandra keeps my spine healthy, and as a result my overall health is excellent! She can cure any potential ailment I've ever brought to her - back pain, headaches, sinus problem due to allergies, stomach issues. I haven't had a cold in 9 years! I've learned so much ab how the body works through her care and coaching. I've been a patient for close to 15 years, if not more, and can count on 2 hands the number of times I've had to see a medical doctor because Dr. Sandra and Dr. Kirk cure whatever ails me which eliminates the need to seek medical advice and consequently, no expensive prescription drugs!
When I first started going, I was on a couple of medications (Prilosec being one of them) and through chiropractic adjustments, she had me symptom-free and off all prescription medication. University Chiropractic is worth it's weight in gold in more ways than just fixing a bad back! It is the key to overall health and no two caregivers could possibly be better than these two people. Go to University Chiropractic. You'll be amazed and very grateful that you did.
Webster Technique Works!
I wanted to let you know that my baby girl was born at 1.55pm on Monday. As a reminder, I was at your office from 9:30-10am that same morning. At 11:15am my water broke, contractions quickly picked up in intensity and we were only at the hospital for 1.5 hrs before she was born. No pain medication, no baby stuck on my hip, no delayed dilation..... absolutely a smooth and fast labor and delivery. I want to thank you for taking me as a new patient and working me into your calendar the month of August/early September. I am so thankful that my friend Julie referred you and your expertise. I know that your sessions tremendously aided a smooth labor and delivery. (I was in labor at the hospital for 35 hours with my first child 2.5 years ago and he was stuck on my hip for the majority of that time) Take care.
A Picture Is Worth A thousand Words
Some people would call it a 'slipped disc.' Joe knew better. Discs don't 'slip.'
But he knew that even with the pain shooting down his leg, he wasn't going back to surgery again. The MRI showed that the disc in his low back that was operated on once before was bulging - again. He was determined to find a way to get stronger, even though he was staring at the image above on the left - with a bulging fourth lumbar disc herniation creating pressure on his sciatic nerve.
Joe, you see, performs MRI examinations as his profession. But this time, he was the patient. After watching countless streams of people seeking information, and more importantly, seeking help, he was determined to find a better way and to get his body back. As a professional performing MRI examinations every day, he will tell you that he sees a very specific pattern with the disc cases at his work. And the pattern that he sees is the same faces showing up at his facility over and over again, still in pain. Before surgery. After surgery. And then again before the next surgery.
He did not want to be one of these people.
But he was afraid that is where he was headed, a lifetime of chronic pain and dysfunction. He had been through this leg pain and weakness before his first surgery. And now it was back. So bad that he was struggling to help take care of his two year old daughter.
So on the recommendation of a friend, he sought chiropractic care. Reluctantly. He had heard that chiropractic care was not the right choice for him with his disc herniation. But he was determined to get better and wanted to learn how chiropractic could help him. He made the decision to truly give it everything that he had and follow every recommendation he was given by his chiropractor to give himself the best shot.
And to his surprise, he got his life back following a consistent series of chiropractic adjustments. So he was not surprised when he decided to check himself again after he was fully functional. Then, he was looking at the picture on the right, with no disc herniation. And to a trained eye, the difference is striking. However, anyone can look at Joe and see he is now a stronger, healthier man and father.
My 18 month old son has been having severe chronic ear infections over the past year. He has been given antibiotics, some last two months. He has had tubes put in both ears and within 10 days of the surgery he had double ear infections. My son was miserable, not able to sleep through the night & stomach aches from all the antibiotics. Now he is so much more pleasant. He sleeps all night and has been NOT been on any antibiotics since his first visit 10 months ago. From my first phone call University Chiropractic in Durham, NC has completely informed and made me feel comfortable trusting my sons health to Dr. Childers." Kim M. (Jacob) Durham
"Well Suited to Chiropractic"
I have been a pateint at University Chiropractic in Durham, NC for many years. My first visit was in October 2003; they were celebrating Halloween. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first. On the day of my first appointment the doctors were dressed in their Halloween costumes.
During my examination, I was told I was "leaning" to the right. As a registered Republican, I often have been told that I lean to the right:). Dr. Childers explained that the "lean" was certainly having an effect on my posture, and possibly my overall health.
After three months of regular adjustments I was feeling great; however, I could not help wondering if I was making progress toward correcting the "lean" that I was informed of on my first visit.
Last week I was in Richmond, VA, for a meeting with a prospective client. As I was getting dressed that morning, I put on my tie and my favorite pin stripped jacket. A I gave myself a final once over in front of the mirror, I nearly had a panic attack!
As I refocused on the image before me, I realized the sleeve on my jacket was about three inches too short...the cuff of my shirt was sticking out of the jacket lie a subluxated vertebra. I quickly realized that the Chiropractic adjustments (along with my exercises) must have corrected my "lean", therefore negating the meticulous alterations made to the suit when I purchased it last year.
Despite the fact that I felt a bit odd in my lopsided jacket I was thrilled that I now had tangible evidence of my spinal correction and ongoing recovery. Dr. Childers at University Chiropractic in Durham, NC have done a tremendous job of returning me to my optimal level of health and well-being.
