leg length scoliosis

Before I began seeing Dr. Hobbs I thought I would have to live with carpal tunnel syndrome, dizziness 5 to 6 times a week and walking carefully so that I didn’t hurt my lower back and experience shooting pain down my leg.

My finger tips would start to tingle if I was working on the computer for more than 15 minutes.  At night, my hand would go numb or would throb with pain.  I used magnetic therapy to reduce the pain, however, that just gave me temporary relief.  Now I can enjoy working on the computer and making craft items.

At the age of 15, I was diagnosed with Syncopal Episodes.  For the last several years, I had been dealing with dizzy spells, which I contribute, to this illness.  I didn’t think there was a whole lot I could do to correct the dizziness.  I have not experienced a dizzy spell in 2 months.  It is nice not to feel the room spin.

My lower back was so out of adjustment that I had to be careful when I would walk or turn.  One missed step and a shooting pain would run down my leg, get me off balance or just make me freeze with pain.  I now enjoy playing with my granddaughter and numerous pets.

I noticed one day when I was in my mid 20’s that when I stood up my feet would face forward but from my waist up my body was turned to the left slightly.  By the time I was in my late 30’s, the turn was more severe and more apparent and uncomfortable.  Now my feet, and the rest of me face the same direction.  It’s amazing what being straight does for ones self esteem.

I am very pleased that my husband began seeing Dr. Hobbs and recommended that I do the same.  I am able to enjoy many things without any discomfort. Thank you Dr. Hobbs, Anali and Maryjane, for making all our visits very pleasant.  It’s been such a long time since I felt this good.
