A patient here at Johnson Family Chiropractic of Peoria has very kindly composed a testimonial regarding his care and treatment in this office. He was suffering from debilitating dizziness that occurred when he would lay down or turn his head or even retract his head (pull it backwards). The dizziness would totally prevent him from living normal life or even concentrate, and the anxiety he was beginning to feel about oncoming dizziness was nearly a problem in its own right. He is very happy to report that, through the care he's received in this office, he no longer has the dizziness:
I was going to another chiropractor for my dizziness. I couldn't lay on either side without getting dizzy, bad, and he helped me get to where I could lay on my left side sometimes but I couldn't lay on my right. He said he was trying to free up the right side of my C2 and gave me the same treatment every time. It wasn't helping. The dizziness was bad, where no one could live with it. I could have gone to the other guy for years and nothing would have changed. Coming to Dr. Johnson has changed everything. I have confidence in his skill and experience, and there's nothing like experience. He solved my dizziness and I could lay on my right side again. The dizziness came back again about a month later, and I went right over and he solved it again in a few visits. I haven't felt it one time this week, not one time.
It is very likely that this patient's dizziness is cervicogenic (caused by neck problems) since chiropractic adjustments to the neck helped to completely resolve his symptoms. It is also very likely that his dizziness will recur from time to time, based on ongoing neck problems. However, it's been extraordinary to watch him recover and to see him filled with hope... hope that next time his dizziness returns he will be able to resolve it again via chiropractic care.
This has been a marvelous success story, in which a patient has been able to return to his normal life. Stories from other patients can be found on our Patient Testimonial webpage.
