Success Story – CJ Kopp

Success with shoulder pain, low back pain, hip & knee pain, and TMJ pain.

I first came to Optimal Performance Health Care Center in January 2018.  I had been suffering from constant daily right shoulder pain for two years. I had also suffered from low back pain for 1 year, hip pain for two years, right knee pain for 6 months & jaw pain. The pain would distract me from my work, make me irritable & adversely affect my workouts. I was less productive at work, I would be forced to take more breaks, it was bad enough for my co-workers to notice. I would also spend more time in my room alone lying down & my mom was worried that I was getting depressed & nothing I would do would alleviate any of the pain. 

Prior to Optimal Performance, I had tried other chiropractors, ibuprofen, heat, ice, tiger balm & self-prescribed stretches. These treatments did not fix my problems, I did not get any results & my conditions only got worse to the point that other areas of my body & life had become affected. I was extremely frustrated. I thought the pain would never go away.

 Since becoming accepted as a patient at Optimal Performance my shoulder pain, low back pain & knee pain have all been eliminated. I am now able to focus on my work & my bench press went up 100lbs. I am also less moody. I never connected my bad mood with my shoulder pain but now that the shoulder pain is gone so is my bad mood.

Now with my improved health, I know my future will be better. It’s a lot easier to enjoy activities when you are not in pain. I will be able to achieve more of my weight lifting goals because of the increased strength in my shoulder & my overall health is improved & I could not ask for more.

I would highly recommend the Optimal Performance Health Care Center to anyone who suffers from unnecessary illness & pain. Dr. Van Westen & staff are very professional & thorough. They work hard to make sure that you are happy with your care & are seeing long term results. C.J. Kopp
