Success Story – Trenace Uttke

Success with chronic headaches, twisted neck, balance, not standing straight, dizziness, bad vision and mood

I was accepted as a patient at Optimal Performance Health Care Center in March of 2017. Before becoming a patient at Optimal Performance Health Care Center I had suffered with daily chronic headaches for 7 months. The pain was at an 8 on a scale of 1-10, 10 being the most painful. I also had a difficult time standing up straight, I suffered with dizziness, blurry vision, balance problems and a bad mood daily for 7 months. I also had a tilted pelvis and 1 leg was 2 inches longer than the other. This was all a result of an auto accident 1.5 years ago and my health problems were not improving on their own. In total I had 4 car accidents, and three were within 6 years and two were within two months. I have also been putting a lot of stress and strain on my body for 56 years now with multiple falls, car accident doing a lot of walking, helping people move plus I was a Tom boy growing up.

Before becoming a patient at Optimal Performance Health Care Center I tried taking Tylenol, ibuprofen, Prilosec, physical therapy, exercise and vitamins, but none of these provided even temporary relief. I also saw 3 neurologist and none of them helped. They just wanted to put me on pain meds or surgery for my neck. One doctor did not give me any answers, another doctor said he could put me all together, but did nothing. Another doctor said I do not need surgery on my neck yet. They were all talk and no results. I became frustrated with these results. Nothing seemed to work and I did not want to take pain medication for the rest of my life even though I suffered with Chronic daily headaches and had difficulty standing straight. When these problems were at their worst I became depressed, my vision was affected, my sleep was affected, I was exhausted and I did not spend time with my friends which disappointed me. I simply was not my usual self. My health problems were having a negative affect on my life and I feared if they were to continue for another 1.5 years I might lose my mind.

Since becoming accepted as a patient at Optimal Performance Health Care Center I can stand up straight, my balance has improved and my headaches are less frequent and much less severe. I was taught exercises to keep my neck strong and healthy! I even have a pillow now that helps me sleep better and helps with acid reflux! I would highly recommend Optimal Performance Health Care Center to others who are suffering from unnecessary illness or pain because they taught me how to stay healthy.
