I would just like to start by saying that before my experience with Dr. Zabinski and his staff, I did not have a lot of faith in chiropractic care. Whether it was hearing negative thoughts and feelings from other people, or just lack of a personal education in chiropractic, I did not believe it could possibly help me. Wow was I ever wrong.
I work for an electrical/mechanical company in the area. Dr. Zabinski, on several occasions, gave a seminar on general spinal wellness, proper lifting and more. The information he shared with us really seemed to make sense to me. It was a good common sense approach to keeping your back healthy and fit. Although at the time I was not having any problems, the information I learned really seemed to stay with me.
About a year later, I noticed some stiffness in my lower back during a round of golf. Since I have a very physically demanding job, I did not think anything of it. I had experienced lower back pain before, and I assumed, like before, that it would just go away. However, after about three months of rolling out of bed onto my knees, I came to the realization that this time the pain was not going to simply go away.
My first experience with Dr. Zabinski was shortly after I first called him. He examined me that very afternoon. After X-rays and a short wait, I sat down with Dr. Z and had my consultation. During which, he asked me many questions regarding my lower back and the other health problems I had been experiencing. I thought I had covered everything when he asked, “Are you experiencing problems with your neck?” He was able to tell that I had previously had a neck injury, simply by the way I moved my head. This was when I truly started to believe in Chiropractics. I explained to him that over 20 years ago I had injured my neck due to improper weight lifting technique. After that, my neck problems plagued me constantly until I finally re-injured it playing softball 10 years later. Following six months of physical therapy and traction, I thought my neck had healed. What I did not realize was that I had lost most of the range of motion for my head.
Because of the care I received from Zabinski Chiropractic, I now have no lower back pain. I have gained over 20 degrees of motion (in both directions) when turning my head and neck. I feel that I am far more capable of performing my job day to day. I would like to thank Dr. Z, Josh, Ashley, and Darby for their dedication and hard work.
Keep doing what you do!
