Jimmy's Neck Nightmare

Hi. My name is Jimmy and I am 57 years old. I developed neck pain around the time of my 49th birthday while working in the construction field. Luckily, I was due for a promotion and was assigned a less physical job. I started chiropractic treatment and continued it for about 7 years to no avail. My insurance did not cover it, so I paid out of pocket, which amounted to over $10,000.

About 4 years in, I also worked with an acupuncturist and a physical therapist on the advice of my osteopathic doctor. Nothing seemed to work out too well for me. My pain got worse and I was considering surgery. I found this website and wrote to Sensei a little more than 1 year ago. He listened to my story at that time and asked for my MRI. He wrote back to me and recommended spinal decompression using the DRX9000 system. I consulted a provider near me in Texas and began treatment during my summer vacation last year. I took 35 sessions total and found my neck pain completely relieved. After 7 long years, I was finally pain free.

While I had the pain, my life was quite miserable. I could not play baseball, as I like to do and found time with my kids to be more than my neck could handle. My 2 teen boys felt like they lost their dad, even though I was around all the time. I just could not keep up most of the time. My marriage suffered and so did my job. I knew I was giving my family an attitude most of the time, but could not help it. I am sure many of you with chronic pain understand how it limits your ability to simply live and enjoy life.

Now that I feel better, I am doing my best to make up for lost time. I have become a better husband and dad and I am going away with my wife for a nice trip for the first time in years. We are looking forward to swimming together in the Caribbean this April and I am confident that my neck ordeal is over. I just want to say thanks for the good advice. Sensei, you do good work and don’t ask for anything in return. I have taken it upon myself to try to portray this attitude in my daily life as well. That’s it. I hope you like my story; at least it has a happy ending. – Jimmy
