—The Hirliman Family
Scoliosis, Back Pain and HeadachesI was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 9 but it went untreated. Over the years, I had suffered with back pain and headaches and also knee and hip pain. I tried other treatment options which included over the counter pain meds. I sought chiropractic care because I wanted to bring my health and my family’s health to the next level. I do my exercises that Dr. Justin prescribed for me regularly and keep my scheduled appointments. Since getting under care, we have way less colds and bouts of croup and my aches and pains are very infrequent. We LOVE getting adjusted!
Blood Pressure & ADDI came to James Family Chiropractic because I felt it was time for a change in my life. I needed to get more healthy habits, eat right, and take better care of my body. I was also interested in the chiropractic process, because it offers more than a just a diagnosis and a pill for said diagnosis. I heard about James Family Chiropractic from my mother and brother who have both gotten amazing results with Dr. James. I knew that Dr. James was going to search for the cause of my problems, and not just try to mask my symptoms. I had issues with high blood pressure, low back pain, and ADD. I was on Lisinopril for the blood pressure, Adderall for ADD and the low back pain affected almost every aspect of my life: school, work, etc. I have been a patient at James Family Chiropractic for six months, and now I feel better every day, it as if someone has lifted the fog from my life!
Neck PainI first want to start off saying thank you very much for your care and friendliness, you are definitely a family practice that has taken great care of my family and I, and I can’t thank you enough for that. A few months ago I started getting really bad neck pain which then lead to even worse headaches and other sensations (numb toes, tingling scalp, and overall poor health). These pains would often cause severe anxiety as I was never able to explain why they were occurring, and trips to the general practitioner or specialist rarely held any insight to why these problems were occurring. I have seen Chiropractors in the past before I moved to South Carolina and knew their benefits but didn’t put my health as a priority and started to pay for it. Then I got into a car accident in which I was hit from behind by two cars, one that hit the car behind me, which then hit me. I was already having neck problems and headaches, and the whiplash really put an escalation on my pain and the need to be seen by someone who could truly make a difference. I called a few local chiropractors but no one could take me, however James Family said they would make sure they saw me right away, and that little bit made all the difference. I went there that day and was greeted by Vicky, Tammy and Aaron “A.k.a. Ernie the Magician” who helped me get x-rayed, scanned and seen by the Doctor that very day. I could tell a difference the minute I got adjusted and by the way I was treated by the staff that this place had what it took to bring me back to a healthy lifestyle. After going to the class and putting me on a rigorous schedule I was able to see Great improvements on my posture and pain relief. As much as I enjoyed my previous Chiropractor I could definitely see a difference in care and the desire to see me live a better and healthier life. Shortly after and through seeing my improvements I have now entrusted my wife and daughter to the care of Dr. James and his staff, and even more thankful than before for the care and relief they have given my entire family. Thanks again to the entire staff as you are all now a major part of our lives and we couldn’t be more grateful.
Hand Numbness & MigrainesWhen I first came to Dr. James I had horrible chronic migraines, shoulder pain, neck pain, and numbness in hand. I couldn't carry more than 15 lbs without serious neck, back pain. I tried pain meds for my migraines and shoulder pain (every kind of meds the Drs. could think of. I have a rare type of migraine the meds wouldn’t help) I also had surgery for the numbness in my hands but it didn’t help. Now I don't hurt! Migraines are rare and if I notice one coming I, can just see Dr. James ASAP and stop it from becoming serious. I have my life back! I can go to school or volunteer without worrying about missing out because I might wake up with a migraine and be down for days. My back rarely hurts. I can lift more weight and play with my nieces and nephew! I can hold my granddaughter! My nieces or nephew don't remember me holding them before this!
Nerve PainIn July of 2010 I had been involved in a serious car accident where I was T-boned by a drunk driver and flipped over. The accident had taken me from being a 25 year old newlywed in perfect physical health to a person who could barely stand or sit for any length of time due to the intense pain in my lower back and nerves in my “butt area”. After months of physical therapy and work conditioning I was able to go back to work but I still had almost constant lower back pain and sciatica (“butt nerve”) issue). Over the following year I just learned to live with the discomfort and figured that the doctors were right and “that was as good as I was gonna get”. However when I started to develop regular headaches in addition to my other issues my wife (who has her own set of back issues) and I started looking for other options. We were providentially blessed because we found James Family Chiropractic on our first shot at a chiropractor, and to be honest my wife had to drag me along because I was under the impression that chiropractic was essentially snake oil (Sorry Dr. Justin). To make a long story short after meeting with Dr. James we decided to give it an honest try and it wasn’t long before we both started to see real results. After a few short months of Actually Doing All Of My Exercises to the best of my ability and Dr. James’ expertise I can honestly say that I am every bit as good as I was before my car accident if not just a little bit better.
