My name is Rita Watson. I was diagnosed with chronic progressive multiple sclerosis in 1983. From what I understand, this type of MS is one of the worse types. When I first was diagnosed, I was terrified. I was put on steroids, and the steroids would stop the progress, and when the steroids were stopped, the disease would start again. I have had double vision, optic neuritis, and have lost the use of my legs first, and at a point in time, lost the use of my arms. I have lost a lot of the sensation from the neck down to my feet. I went from a cane to a wheelchair from 1983 to 1992. I now use a wheelchair.
As the years have passed, I have tried a little of everything, from laying under giant magnets, taking mega vitamin therapy, IV’s with vitamins, needle therapy with vitamins (25 shots a week), acupuncture and diet with herbs.
Dr. Don Handly, my chiropractor, had been working on an injured muscle in my right arm from a fall in 2010 with success. He spoke with me about supplementation and a diet regimen for the MS and my general health. I started on the suggested supplementation on February 9, 2011, and on March 16th, I regained a lot of sensation back from the neck down to my feet that was taken due to the MS. My physical therapist suggested that I make an appointment with my neurologist. I made the appt., and will see my neurologist on May 3rd. I was told that probably another MRI will be taken. I am excited and anxious as to the comparison from the last MRI that was taken in 2008 and the one that will be taken soon. I know that it will show improvement. I thank Dr. Handly for his compassion, diligence, and expertise. He is and has always been impressive in his profession. I am optimistic as to my future.
No More Tests
"My first visit was five years ago. My right knee and ankle had been swollen for over two years. My family doctor kept sending me for tests, but no one knew why my right leg was swollen. After approximately two months of treatment at Handly Chiropractic & Wellness, the swelling had decreased substantially and remains that way today."
A Stronger Back Through Chiropractic
"I am a skeptic at heart, and I have to admit that I was hesitant to seek chiropractic help. But after almost three years of suffering daily and refusing to consider back surgery as an option, I came to Handly Chiropractic & Wellness. The pain I had begun to experience in my wrists is gone and my daily dosage of medication has become unnecessary. Now I feel confident that my commitment to my health and support by chiropractic will make me more comfortable, stronger and healthier."
Small Adjustments for Pain Relief
"For a number of years, I had been bothered by back and arthritic hip pain. Then the pain became acute. Doctors offered only surgery or heavy pain killers. I was referred by an acquaintance to Handly Chiropractic & Wellness. After a series of adjustments, I experienced immediate relief and have continued to improve."
