Herniated Disc

I was diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy. I was also diagnosed with severe arthritis and possibly a herniated disc. I had stabbing-like pains in my low neck and shoulder. The pain radiated down my left arm to my hand. I had been treated by many doctors and given many medications. The medications helped reduce some pain and swelling. A spine specialist recommended that I have a surgery take place.
However, I cancelled my appointment when I had a consultation with Dr. Suggs. I benefitted from his treatments since the very first visit. I had some strength for pushing up and out in my left arm. It had continued to improve.
Dr. Suggs and his staff have been very helpful. I am very thankful to them.

Lower Back/Sciatic Pain, Depression, Acid Reflux

“I was referred to Dr. Suggs by another doctor in another part of the state. I had been to all different kinds of Chiropractors, had non-manipulative procedures-thumper, massage therapy, medical doctors, physical therapists, rake therapists, reflexology therapists, and pressure point. I had some good results and some bad.
I have suffered lower back and sciatic pain for a number of years. Probably more than 20 years, due to two accidents and several falls.
Over the years, my pain became increasingly worse to the point of being constant and on a daily basis. I had learned to push it aside to be able to function at my job. I began to limp severely and had difficulty getting up and out of chairs or bath tub. I was treated by numerous specialty doctors with pain killers, muscle relaxers, or medications for depression. Nothing “fixed” the problem. I lived with continual sharp pain, stabbing pain from my hips down both legs to my toes. I had other health problems such as acid reflux, daily kidney problems, knee and feet problems, and hurting joints.
My sister referred me to a Chiropractor who then referred me to Dr. Suggs. I am able to have pain free days and more movement and flexibility in my back and limbs. My attitude and outlook on life was 100% better. I continue to get better with each visit. I am very pleased with the treatments and have sung the praises of Dr. Suggs
and his devoted, caring staff to anyone who will listen.
I was always told “You’re just getting older and your body is wearing out. You’ll just have to live with it.”
Dr. Suggs proved differently.
Thank You Dr. Suggs. You have given me a new lease on life.”

Chronic Shoulder, Neck Pain

I’ve had chromic shoulder and neck pain since I was in high school. When I was in junior high, I was diagnosed with sway-back and had to wear a brace for about a year. My shoulder and back pain has only gotten worse over the years.
I have done everything from massage therapy to an MRI. Treatments only helped in the short run. That’s when I went to Dr. Suggs. I look forward to my weekly visit, and I even do nightly exercises. The increased range in motion and the substantial reduction of pain had encouraged me to become more physically active since visiting your office. Even my co-workers have noticed the improvement of my posture. I would definitely recommend your care to others!
