“In September of 2015, I fell half way down a flight of stairs at my cousin’s house. About a month later, I started having bad lower back pain and when I would try and exercise on the treadmill, I would get a sharp stabbing pain in my right buttock. In addition, I could no longer sit for long periods of time in the car or at the office without extreme pain. I started taking over the counter NSAIDS for the pain. I called my primary care doctor who ran x-rays of my right buttock and lower back. The findings were “normal” and I was given a prescription anti-inflammatory gel to use to get some relief from the pain. I used the gel 4 times a day and still did not get any relief. Because of the severity of the pain, bending over, laying down, walking on a treadmill proved to be excruciating. This horrible pain was making me miserable and unable to lead a normal life. I found Atlanta Innovative Medicine (formerly Total HealthCare, Norcross location) online and read about the success stories and became curious to see if it was my answer. The week before Christmas in 2015, I went in for my initial consultation. X-rays were taken of my entire spine and hip area. Quickly after, I got to see my X-ray and was told that my spine was out of alignment and that my S.I. joint and an inflamed coccyx was the cause of my pain. I quickly asked what the next step was and was surprised by the answer I received. I was told that all of the doctors, chiropractors, and physical therapists were going to discuss my case to decide what the best course of action would be for me to start to heel. That’s right! I was so excited to have medical doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists all discussing my course of action. The next day, I got to sit down and hear what the team had to say. I was scheduled for 3 days of physical therapy, chiropractic work, and a series of injections to help ease my pain. I was excited to get on the road to recovery! The staff at Atlanta Innovative Medicine took care of my every need regarding my insurance coverage, my work schedule, and my out of pocket cost. They worked with my income level to reduce the out of pocket cost and I was able to come to physical therapy after work at 5pm for 3 days a week! Two weeks after I started therapy, I saw a big difference in my pain level and my energy level. Dr Daniel is an amazing chiropractor and made me feel so much better in such a short period of time. The injections I received were all natural so they didn’t give me any nasty side effects. The nerve test that was conducted on me, found that the cause of my low back pain was neuropathy. Working with the physical therapists helped ease this pain and they worked with my insurance company to purchase a TENS machine at no cost to me so that I could do this type of therapy at home as well! The care that I received at Atlanta Innovative Medicine, was exceptional.
