Chronic Pain Testimonials
No More Pain & Numbness!
"I had never been to a chiropractic clinic. However, after suffering from neck and shoulder pain for several months, along with numbness in my arms and hands, I decided to seek help at Trinity Health Solutions. Following a thorough examination and some diagnostic tests, it was determined that I had a bulging disc in my neck and recommended decompression therapy.
After the first several treatments I began to experience significant relief from the pain and numbness, and by the end of the course of treatments, I was essentially free from the symptoms that brought me to the clinic in the first place. I have elected to continue my wellness program with regular therapeutic massage and chiropractic adjustments.
I have enjoyed the friendliness, courtesy and professionalism exhibited Trinity Health Solutions and the staff during my many visits to the clinic. I have recommended their services to others, and will continue to do so."
Pain free for the first time in a year!
"I came to Trinity Health Solutions after many visits to orthopedic doctors, x-rays, an MRI and many months of physical therapy. Faced with a future of injections, I decided to see Dr. Derrick. After a few weeks of treatments, I was almost pain free, for the first time in ALMOST A YEAR! It has now been close to eight months and I am able to exercise again, keeping to Dr. Derrick’s recommendations and monthly treatments."
How DRX 9000 (Decompression Therapy) Saved My Life!…
"Prior to New Year’s Eve 2003, I lived an active lifestyle. I ran 12-15 miles a week. I enjoyed swimming, jet-skiing and would try any activity at least once. I divided my time between taking care of my family and my career as a dental hygienist. I had a few pains here and there, but nothing a little ibuprofen couldn’t handle. Then I began having constant pain in my left leg and hip. December 31st was the day my life changed forever. Upon making the bed that morning something shifted in the hip/back region. The pain brought me to my knees. I couldn’t sit, stand or sleep without constant pain.
After the first MRI, the physician told me there was degeneration and bulging discs, just a sign of age. As the pain continued to get worse, I was referred to a specialist who sent me to physical therapy. The physical therapy only compounded the muscle spasms and again gave no relief. My next option was injections. I refused to treat the pain with injections until I could get a diagnosis of the problem. This is when I decided to react myself by taking mega doses of ibuprofen, stretching the tight muscles and running until the endorphins kicked in and the pain was gone for an hour or two. The pain persisted and sleep deprivation increased. I would come home from work and spend the entire night lying on the floor to get the spasms to go away. Finally, after losing my balance and falling down the attic stairs I realized my life as a functioning human being was over unless I found out what was wrong with my body.
I am a true believer that the human body has the ability to heal itself, given the right set of circumstances. The first Trinity Health Solutions provider I visited help reduce a great deal of muscular dysfunctions, but I never could hold an adjustment for more than 48hours. Nine months of hope was turning into frustration. I wanted to know why it wasn’t completely going away. The area in my hip/back was still there and painful. It was time for a second opinion. That’s when Dr. Derrick entered my life.
Dr. Derrick was up front and honest with me. I received site-specific adjustments that really helped reduce the pain. I finally reached a point during treatment when I could make it through a week between adjustments, but the pain kept coming back. The second MRI confirmed my worse fear. There was a BIG problem between L5-S1. My options were now limited to pain management eventually leading to surgery or spinal decompression therapy. In my situation, the vitality of that disc was uncertain.
I researched the DRX 9000 on the internet by checking out the testimonials and studies. I wasn’t sure if it would work in my case. It has now been 2 1/2 years since my accident. I had met more people in those last couple years that have had back surgery and still have pain. I decided that since I finally had a diagnosis and another non-surgical option, I would give it a try. For me the price for treatment was less than having to permanently give up the income from my career.
The first couple of treatments were to get accustomed to the machine. The third visit is when my husband noticed I looked taller. I felt taller too! Through the course of treatment, I had good days, better days and great days. There has been a great deal of muscle fatigue that is improving daily without the need for ibuprofen. I received a core strengthening exercise routine that has made me feel stronger than I have in years. The pain in the hip is gone. The pain radiating through the leg is gone. I can’t believe how good I feel. Dr. Derrick even told me I could start running again!
Why do I say the DRX 9000 (decompression therapy) saved my life? Because after I injured myself, my quality of life declined. I avoided family outings. I spent almost every weekend on my back crying. I stopped doing the things I enjoyed doing. I was in chronic pain and that was what my mind focused on. I didnt want to live the way I was anymore, but then there was hope! My hope came then the DRX 9000 arrived at Trinity Health Solutions. The machine saved my life because it has given me back a quality of life that I lost on December 31, 2003. Thank you Dr. Derrick!"
Decompression Results after only two weeks!
"I am the primary caregiver for my disabled husband and an elementary school teacher. My neck injury, the result of a car acciendet, left me with a great deal of pain from my neck to the tips of my right hand, decreased use of my right arm, limited movement in my neck and I had bouts of bercidis in my reight shoulder. After only two treatments on DRX (decompression therapy) I could move my right arm without pain. After a week and a half, I was moving my neck and using my right arm again without the severe pain. I did not want to look to surgery or drugs as a cure. The DRX was my only alternative and for me it was the best solution. I now am drug free, pain free and have a good range of motion in my neck and the complete use of my right arm and hand. Thank you Dr. Derrick and the DRX treatment program!"
Prenatal Chronic Pain Care:
"I was a bit skeptical about treatment from a Trinity Health Solutions provider, but I decided to try it at the insistence of my husband. There were not many chiropractors in the McKinney area that specialized in prenatal care. I came into Trinity Health Solutions and I was immediately impressed by the friendly staff and the experience with Dr Derrick.
My very first visit I was in a ton of pain from my pregnancy and the weight gain. Not only did the lat four months of my pregnancy go pain free, but I had more energy and was able to work on my feet up to three days before my delivery. I probably could have worked up until the day of my delivery, but I gave birth over the weekend! Thanks to Dr Derrick, the end of my pregnancy was better than the first 5 months (of which I was not under chiropractic care).
The care Dr Derrick gave me was noticeable in the health of the baby! This was evident as the baby’s head was down and engaged over a month before I delivered. I also had an extremely short labor and delivery as a result of chiropractic care. My labor was induced by my obstetrician because the baby’s head was engaged and I had dilated to a 5. The labor lasted only an hour and a half before the baby was born!
Thanks to Dr Derrick the last for months and the delivery went very smoothly. In future pregnancies I will have Dr Derrick take care of me from the beginning of my pregnancy. I also plan to continue Treatments on a regular basis to maintain my health.
Thanks so much"
