It started slowly - small minor discomfort in my lower back, slight slouching, small than significant weight gain, and eventually a slight scoliosis. It took years but the eventual wear and tear of being on the road had taken a toll on my body.
Looking back its funny - no one tells you when you start a career in consulting about how the countless flights around the world (in coach), sleeping in different hotel rooms, lack of exercise, and working around the clock are not the best thing for your health. It was not until I came to Knecht Chiropractic that I realized how far I had fallen. My body was a mess. My spine was misaligned, I had gained 30lbs, and I was struggling to concentrate.
Luckily I met Dr. Knecht and Dr. Petrak who immediately identified my issues and put an aggressive plan in place. Within two short weeks my condition and confidence began to improve. Then slowly, wveek by week, I began to get even better. My posture improved, my spine straightened, pounds fell off and I slowly regained my sense of confidence. Suddenly going to see Dr. Petrak, Deborah, Stephanie, Jeries, and the entire Knecht team became not just a place that healed my back pain, but a time to see the family. It's true, the team had become a family. A family who put my needs first, welcomed me with a warm smile, pushed me, and constantly tried to improve my condition. Thanks to their support I have lost 25 pounds, my lower back pain has gone away and I feel like I have my life back again.
If you are like me, a little tired from travel, aware that your body may just not be the same as it used to be, and in need of a health jump-start, I highly encourage you to come to Knecht Chiropractic. Like me, you might just be surprised how far you can come in just two short months and the family you will pick up along the way. Thanks Dr. Knecht and team for giving me the strength to again go after my dreams.
