Dynamic Health & Pain Management

For years and years I taught philosophy at Baber-Scotia College. I have always been interested in the Mind Body relationship. How the body influences the mind, and how the mind influences the body. Your mind is a big controller of how your body feels. If you think something is wrong with you, the body will start to feel like there’s a problem, regardless of if there is or not.

I first heard of Dynamic Health & Pain Management through a colleague of mine. I have always been highly interested in different ways of treating the body. So, I drove from Salisbury to see Dr. Cox for major pain in my neck. I had never tried a Chiropractor, but several friends of mine had. Based off what they’ve told me, Dr. Cox’s approach to healthcare is so much different.

He really emphasizes the importance of maintaining a healthy spine, and getting to the source of the issue, something I’ve never considered.
I spent most of my time grading essay exams & papers; so naturally over time, I would develop these neck and back issues. Dr. Cox brought me relief almost instantly. I accepted the treatment plan in order to get better. Before I started, the pain was about 8 out of 10. Now, it’s completely gone. After all was said and done, I started my maintenance program, but stopped going after six months due to travel time and traffic.

In August of this year, I fell after waking up in the middle of the night. Not thinking anything of it, I went back to bed. The next morning, I couldn’t move. X-rays showed two tiny fractures on my T8 and T9 vertebras. This was an issue because my wife and I were getting ready to travel to Seattle, WA to see our grandchildren. I only get to see them on major holidays, so this trip was very special to me. The doctor gave me some pain medication and sent me home. The whole time we were on the west coast, I was in severe pain, and slept most of the time.

Upon returning home, I knew exactly where I needed to go, Dynamic Health and Pain Management. Since I resumed treatment, my pain has reduced drastically. I am now finally able to get back to running. It is my ultimate hobby, and not being able to let my feet hit the pavement for that stress relief has really troubled me.

Dynamic Health and Pain Management is different. They help you get better from the inside out. Since my accident, I have made, and will continue to make the trip from Salisbury. It is worth it to get better. It is worth it to maintain your spinal strength.
