My name is Gladys Beatty and I am 75 years young.
I am in fairly good health for my age, but do have a few problems, one of which is osteroarthritis and low back pain.
I have suffered with back pain for many years, due to deterioration of the vertebrae in the lower lumbar area.
Back In December of 2008, I was complaining to a friend at the church I attend and they encouraged me to see a Chiropractor. I had given this some thought, but never pursued it. When I got home, I called the office of Dr. Jon Tinkle and made and appointment for the next day.
He was very thorough in asking about my history of back pain and also took note of any other health issues. He took x-rays to determine the cause oy my problems and what he needed to do to correct them. He discussed the films with me and my husband and pointed out the problem areas and why they had become so painful.
He assured myself and my husband that he needed to be extra careful in his adjustmants not to do any damage to the spine and explained exactly what and how he would treat me.
I only wish I had done this years ago, and I would have had relief from some of the terrible pain and pressure in the nerves that I came to experience.
I am doing very well now and am amazed at how much he has done for me and that I no longer have the pain that I had endured for so many years. I occasionally have some minor discomfort due to my age, but as long as I continue to do as he advises, which involves doing several stretching exercises, riding my stationary bicycle and coming to him for necessary adjustments when needed, i should be in great shape for many years to come. I am forever greatful for his service.
