Success Story – Mazie Wellington

Success with low back pain and neck pain.

I first came to Optimal Performance Health Care Center in February 2018.  I had been suffering from on and off low back pain for 10 years that was so intense that I could barely roll out of bed and could not bend down. I also suffered from neck pain for 6 months that was just a constant achy feeling. My pain only got worse after being pregnant and even worse after I gave birth. My symptoms made me grumpy, irritable, and caused my husband to become irritated in me because he had to do a lot more when I could not help due to my pain levels. My health problems were having a negative effect on my life and I knew if I did nothing the pain would only get worse.

 Prior to Optimal Performance, I had invested in steroid shots that were suggested by my medical doctor, other chiropractors during my pregnancy, ice, showers, massages, and self-prescribed stretches. These treatments did not fix my problems, I did not get any results only temporary relief.

 Since becoming accepted as a patient at Optimal Performance I have more good days because I am able to get out of bed without pain, I feel more energized and I have learned how to do things at home when I feel discomfort. I have also gained flexibility after completing my physical therapy and I have gained more confidence in myself.

 Now with my improved health, I know my future will be better. I now have the “tools” to help correct my issues and I will be healthier because I am able to do things without pain every day.  

 I would highly recommend Optimal Performance Health Care Center to anyone who suffers from unnecessary illness & pain. Dr. Van Westen & staff has great services that are specific to your health problems. Mazie Wellington
