PHYSICAL REHABILITATION TESTIMONIALS
Now I can put my own socks on and walk normally! My wife and I even joined a gym!
Since 2010 I’ve had pain in my right hip including sciatic pain that radiated down my entire right side. This was from years of being an umpire and traveling. Last December after officiating a basketball game my pain was so intense my wife had to put my socks on.
My wife heard about Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy on the radio and encouraged me to give it a try. By the end of the first week, I felt better. I’ve been able to reduce my pain medication, which is huge. I’m able to work for longer periods of time, even squat to work with catchers. My wife is really excited that I listened to her suggestion to come to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy.
Now I’m over 80% better
For the past couple of years I have had numbness in my feet and legs, plus tingling in my hands that was progressively getting worse. The worst symptom was when my feet were entirely numb.
I saw an ad in the paper for Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy. Within a couple of weeks I noticed 60-65% improvement in my numbness, now I’m over 80% better. My balance has also improved. I’ve been able to do squats on a bosu ball! Most importantly I’m able to help care for my handicapped wife. The staff at Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy is very helpful and professional.
Now I can go up and downstairs, ride my bike and I’m back to hiking!
For a year and a half, I had sharp pain in both my knees. Going up and downstairs was very painful, and I could no longer run. Before coming to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy I worked with an Orthopedic doctor, a Spine Specialist, my General Medical doctor, a Physical Therapist, Massage Therapist and a Podiatrist.
I started to notice a difference within the first couple months of treatment. Now I can go up and downstairs, ride my bike and I’m back to hiking! My outlook on life also has improved. The realization that I’m not restricted due to a decline in a health is a big relief. The staff is very personable, friendly and caring. Every department knows how to work together as part of the team.
This place is amazing! It has absolutely changed my life!
I had what I called “back attacks” twice a year that would send me to the hospital and they sent me home with pain killers. In 2012 I had a “back attack” that kept me out of work for one month.
I came to Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy and I started to feel relief after my very first decompression treatment. I don’t think about my pain anymore. I can do laundry all day and not be wiped out. Before I would do one load and then I was down for the rest of the day. I’m thinking about doing yard work, I thought that I was done with that before my treatment at Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy.
I feel supported; even from the other patients.
For eight years I had sciatic pain from a bulging disc, the pain was so intense I felt like I needed to go to the emergency room every day. I couldn’t sleep or work, it was very hard on my family.
I learned about Sound Pain Solutions from an ad on the radio. I started to feel better the first week and the sciatic pain was gone within the first two weeks. I’m able to vacuum without pain and change the laundry without sitting on the floor. Since I feel better, I’m excited to exercise more, get back to walking and swimming. I love the staff! They make me feel like family, and they care about how I feel. I got answers to my questions all the way through my treatment.
A couple of weeks into treatment I noticed that I wasn’t waking up as frequently overnight and felt rested, even my balance and confidence on my feet improved!
For over the past ten years I’ve experienced pain and numbness in my feet. Gradually the symptoms in my feet got progressively worse, I was waking up 5-6 times a night and was only getting a few hours of sleep.
I searched the internet and came across the Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy website and took the neuropathy quiz. A couple of weeks into treatment I noticed that I wasn’t waking up as frequently overnight and felt rested, even my balance and confidence on my feet improved! The staff at Olympic Spine is a great group of people, there is not one person that I couldn’t have a lasting friendship with. I am really happy with the results of the combined therapy of chiropractic adjustments, non-surgical spinal decompression, peripheral neuropathy, and physical rehabilitative therapy.
No more walker or wheelchair!
I was suffering from debilitating pain in my thigh, sciatic area, and my low back for over 8 months and it left me unable to walk without assistance. It was very frustrating because I had to use a wheelchair at church and a walker everywhere else. I tried various medications, physical therapy, and even chiropractors, without any relief.
It took me about 4 weeks of treatment to start to see long-lasting results. Now, after completing my treatment, I no longer have severe pain or a roller coaster of pain throughout my day. I no longer must use a walker or wheelchair at church. I walk freely on my own and can participate more fully in leading worship on Sundays. I feel like my energy is higher and my spirit is brighter. Sound Pain Solutions has given my life back to me, and I am deeply grateful.
Without the help of Olympic Spine I wouldn’t have the quality of life I am now enjoying
About a year and a half ago I extruded the discs in my L5 and S1-S2 vertebrae, the pain was unbearable! I had shooting pain down my left leg through my glute and down my calf.
Dr. Shelley offered non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, the treatment plan was a big commitment and more involved than surgery but would benefit me more in the long run. I continue to come here a year and a half later because I feel how much of a difference it makes in my life and helping my back stay strong! I do believe that without the help of Olympic Spine I would not have the quality of life that I am now able to enjoy!
What makes them special compared to other clinics I’ve been to is the all-inclusive care
For about a month I had neck and upper back pain that prevented me from being able to get off the couch or stand up. I had migraines so painful they made me sick. Ice, heat, and even pain medication didn’t get rid of the pain. As an athlete, I was so used to ignoring but my body finally said; I’ve had enough! My husband told me about Olympic Spine and Sports Therapy. Within the first month, my pain went from 9/10 to 3/10.
My quality of life has greatly improved! I have more energy to take care of household chores. I’m back to working in the yard. I can sit through a movie and church. I’m socializing with neighbors and entertaining. I’m back to walking 2-3 miles a day and lifting weights. I’ve learned to listen to my body and not over-do it. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Dr. Shelley did a very thorough examination including X-ray and MRI. They understand the steps you need to go through to heal and move forward with your life.
I would’ve written a check for $100,000 if I had known I could get this much relief
I haven’t slept for more than 2 ½ to 3 hours at a time in 10 years because of the pain. I tried medication, massage therapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, and injections. I am a small business owner; my plan is to retire in five years. My concern was retiring with constant pain, being limited in what I can do, and not being able to enjoy time with my family.
The treatment is expensive, but honestly, I would’ve written a check for $100,000 if I had known I could get this much relief. My life is so much better. Now I can work a full day and sleep through the night! I rode a bike 20 miles and played softball with my kids.
In addition to the treatment, it’s an education. I’ve learned how to sit and move properly. I always get an explanation to my questions, not a short “move along” answer. The staff is exceptional, they’re all invested in the patient’s results.
Before treatment, the longest I could walk was about 2 miles. Now, I can do over 6 miles!
Most guys my age would have a hard time admitting they had problems with their feet. I would tell them to not let pride get in the way. Suck it up and do the treatment. Now my feet are 60% better. Before treatment, the longest I could walk was about 2 miles. Now, I can do over 6 Miles!
The treatment I’ve had here at Olympic has been much more effective.
My pain started in 2015 when we moved to Washington. I was diagnosed with a slipped vertebrae, bulging disc, scoliosis and compression fractures. To avoid multiple low back surgeries I opted to get a spinal cord stimulator implant. Initially it helped, but progressively became less effective. The treatment I’ve had here at Olympic has been much more effective. So much so that I don’t use the stimulator anymore and plan to have it removed
I am back up to running 20+ miles per week!
I was running 35 miles per week, then I broke down. The mid-back pain, hip, and low back pain brought my running to an abrupt stop. Now, two months later, I’m 75% better. I am back up to running 20+ miles per week and working my way up to 40 miles per week to qualify for the Boston Marathon.
I think the difference is having all the treatment together
I was really frustrated! I felt like my body was old before it’s time. I tried massage therapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, medication, and injections. None of them worked. I could only sit for 10 minutes, walk a few blocks, and had to take steps one at a time. Now I can sit in a meeting for over an hour and a half, walk over a mile and take stairs like a “normal“ person! I think the difference is having all the treatment together. The staff is awesome, and the results are amazing!
It’s worth the drive from Bellingham
I hated getting up in the morning. Standing up caused stabbing pain in my leg. My left foot was so numb, it made me walk with a limp. I was only able to do about 30% of my life. I could feel the improvement after the first few weeks of treatment at Olympic. Now I’m able to do life at 90%! It’s worth the drive from Bellingham. Treatment here has been a total game-changer.
It’s crazy how much it has improved!
I used to hate my shoulder workout days. Before, when I lifted weights, my left shoulder limited what I could do. I could tell it didn’t match my right side. Now, I’m 95% better. My back and neck are better too. My x-rays showed I reduced the misalignment from 45 mm to just 8 mm. I’m so thankful I did this treatment.
I’m so much better, I plan to return to skiing this year!
I used to ski, bungee jump and rock climb. Those were all taken away because of my pain.
My low back, hip, and leg pain was so severe I had to do exercises for two hours each morning in order to be able to walk. Often the pain was so severe I would vomit. I had x-ray, CAT scan, MRI and nerve test done. All they could offer what a prescription for opioids which I rejected. Now, after my treatment at Olympic my pain is reduced by over 90%. I don’t toss and turn all night, and when I get up, I can walk without pain! I’m not taking any drugs, self-medicating with wine or using CBD oil.
My low back pain is 95% better
I threw my back out many times before. This last time it stuck and didn’t go away. I was in so much pain I could hardly sleep. Now my low back pain is 95% better. I’m able to get back to my workouts. I’m even better mentally. I’m happier. I’m more knowledgeable now and have better awareness, I listen to my body. The Olympic staff are always there when I need them.
I am 80% better and still improving!
Between the back pain and numbness in my legs and feet, I was miserable. They said I needed to have a multilevel fusion surgery. My legs would get so numb I couldn’t do anything but sit until the feeling came back. My work was severely limited. Before starting treatment, I could only drive a few hundred miles a week. Now I’m up to 1300 to 1500 miles a week. I used to avoid sales calls if I had to walk even 100 feet. Now I can walk a quarter of a mile.
The treatment I got at Olympic is more thorough than any other office I’ve been to
After my automobile accident, I had pain in my shoulders, mid-back, and low back. It made it hard to get in and out of my truck. Now my pain is reduced by over 60%. I can move again! The treatment I got at Olympic is more thorough than any other office I’ve been to. They have a more complete treatment approach and more advanced therapies. The staff is phenomenal and friendly. This place is awesome!
