Success Story – Elizabeth Flores Bustamante

Success with Hip Pain, Back Pain, Neck Pain, Shoulder Numbness, Leg Stiffness & Under Active Thyroid

I became a patient here at Optimal Performance Health Care Center June 18th, 2015. I had a lot of issues with, hip pain, back pain, neck pain, shoulder numbness, leg stiffness & under active thyroid for over 2 years. The pain was so severe that I could barely walk, it was also affecting my personal, social & work life. I would stay home instead of going out with my friends & family because I was in so much pain. I felt exhausted, fatigued, overweight & depressed. I was feeling dizzy constantly. I was also having a hard time sleeping & was awaken easily.

Prior to coming to Optimal Performance Health Care Center I had physical therapy for 6 months & tried muscle relaxers, medication, heat & massage for my hip pain. I also tried diet & vitamins. The physical therapy and medication helped for about a year then the pain returned along with pain in other parts of my body. I always had some type of discomfort when walking or sitting. I began to feel depressed because I would feel a lot of pain.

I was told by other doctors that I would have to live with the hip discomfort and pain for the rest of my life & that I couldn’t walk for long periods of time. Since becoming a patient here at Optimal Performance my hip, back & neck pain are gone. I regained my flexibility, I have more energy, I’m stronger and I’m also able to work out & go for walks without pain.

I am hopeful for my future health because I’ve seen great results. I’m happy with the progress my body has made with treatment. I’m excited to see the end results which is to be pain free.

I would definitely recommend Optimal Performance Health Care Center to others. I’ve actually already recommended it to family and friends. I will continue to recommend Optimal Performance to others who suffer from unnecessary illness or pain. My friends and family noticed the improvements of my posture & comment on how much happier I seem since I started my treatment with Dr. Van Westen.
