I met Dr. Lauren Millman a year ago at a fest at Suwanee Town Center. I had been under chiropractic care before but nothing had helped for my constant back pain; pain that I had finally learned to start tolerating after over a decade of dealing with it. Dr. Lauren explained that Upper Cervical Chiropractic care was different from the other care I had received. I went in for my initial consultation and x-rays and shortly after had my first session. I will admit, I was a complete skeptic – I mean, a chiropractic adjustment that didn’t involve hearing/feeling my spine and neck crack constantly?!? However, I decided that since nothing prior had worked I would give it a shot for at least six months. I should mention that I had gotten into doing races (5ks, half and full marathons) just after turning 30, but I always had to walk more than run them due to my back pain and also knee pain.
Well, in just one month of Dr. Lauren’s care, I noticed a huge difference. I actually RAN and entire 5k without stopping!!!! I had not done this since high school. I also noticed I was sleeping better and not wanting to take Advil for my back pain.
Fast forward to a year later: I have completed multiple 5Ks, half marathons, and two full marathons. Not only has my time improved, but I no longer wearing knee braces or pop Advil before races. My posture overall has improved. I’ve been sick less this year than I have in many years – even my allergies are staying at bay more this year (and that’s with a pollen count of over 6000 the other day). Upper Cervial Chiropractic care has changed my life!
Thank you Dr. Lauren for helping me on this road to becoming an even more fabulous me! Oh and I give full permission for my x-rays to be posted. The difference in just six months was completely amazing!! (just ignore the fact that I forgot to remove my stud earrings the first time)
