Hi, my name is Alexis. I’ve been under care here since March of this year, 2021. Back in 2018, I was in a car crash when a lady rear ended me. I braced for it because I saw her coming when I was stopped. When she rear ended me, I went forward and slammed back. So, my head smashed against the seat.
A month later, I started having two different symptoms. I had costochondritis, which whoever doesn’t know what that is, it’s an inflammation in your ribcage. Then I also started to feel like, I don’t want to say vertigo because I wasn’t always spinning, but I felt like I was on a boat. The best way I can explain it is when I’m standing still, I feel like I’m still moving. So, I would be driving, and then when I stop, but I feel like I was still moving. Or, when I’d walk two steps, I felt like I was still walking, even though I stopped.
So, I went to an ENT (ear, nose, and throat doctor), and they did a lot of tests. They told me that while you’re one year’s abnormal, there’s nothing we can do about it. You could try physical therapy. So I went to Vestibular rehab, which just made everything worse.
And it was until the beginning of this year that I was kind of at my breaking point. And I was like, I was praying for a sign of something that was different because I wasn’t going to be put on medication. It wasn’t really an option, but no doctor wouldn’t necessarily believe me. So, I was waiting for that queue to just not give up. I looked on my Instagram, and I saw a doctor that did the Blair chiropractic. And, unfortunately, he was in New Jersey, but luckily, he posted about other doctors in our area. So, I found Dr. Bulow, and it’s been great ever since.
Well, I’ve always been a believer in natural holistic things. Basically, anything that’s not medicinal in that respect. So, when I saw the doctor’s post, it said if you’re dealing with: dizziness, concussion, migraines, etc. He did the procedure, and it looked so simple. And I’ve always gone to a chiropractor, so that wasn’t anything new for me. That was exciting for me because I loved going to the chiropractor, but I’ve always been very weird about people touching my neck.
I watched the doctor’s videos, like a bunch of them. When I found Dr. Bulow, I was hunting his Facebook, hunting his Instagram, just watching, learning everything I possibly could because I’m a heavy researcher. When I found it, I was like, I have to do this.
There’s nothing that’s going to hold me back from doing this!
It’s something that I was lucky because I experienced it right from the start. I have had retracing, but it’s never been to the extent that it was. I feel my body get stronger and stronger, and now it’s kind of cool because I know when I’m out of alignment. When I’m not used to that I’m used to just being miserable and now I’m like ‘I got to go see Dr. Bulow’.
For me it was a lot of praying for a sign that I could get help. Don’t give up on yourself because that’s a huge part of it. Just don’t give in to being miserable, being in pain. Keep hunting and you’ll find your answer and hopefully if you’ve been praying for a sign, this will be your sign. Come see Dr. Bulow and Dr. Savage.
