Have you ever been so sick with a head cold and could not breathe through your nose no matter how hard you tried? The more you sniff the worse it gets? Your nose gets very dry and cracks from trying to blow it? Well that was me for about eight years off and on. The worse thing was that I wasn’t even sick. I would just always be congested and have a very hard time breathing through my nose. I could never figure out why I would get like that. I figured it was just constant seasonal allergies. In which case I would just live off of Claritin and OTC allergy medication. Did it work to its full potential? No. It semi- relieved the pressure and congestion in my sinuses for a short period of time and would then bounce back within a few hours. I then started seeing Dr. Anne Marie for a chiropractor. I told her about my back and my knees from hockey and how it affected me. She said we would have me fixed up in no time. I then told her about my sinus problems and she said we can fix that too. Right, getting adjusted is going to relieve the pressure and congestion in my sinuses? Who would have thought? Either way, I went along with it, knowing my back and knees would benefit from chiropractic but not thinking my sinuses would. As soon as Dr. Anne Marie adjusted me for the first time, INSTANTLY my sinuses let loose and I was completely relieved of the pressure and congestion. Ever since then I have routinely been getting adjustments after work and have yet to have any sinus problems what so ever. I can FINALLY breathe normally again. I can’t even imagine how miserable I would still be if it weren’t for seeing Dr. Anne Marie. I have benefited in more than one way from getting adjusted, and I know you will too!
Dr. Anne Marie was my last chance. I was in excruciating pain in my neck, mid and lower back. I was depressed because I couldn’t drive, couldn’t work (at a desk job), couldn’t sleep for weeks, and had no joy in my life. Previously in early May, I had been running and biking every other day but the pain in my neck and skull were increasing as the days wore on. I had used ice, heat, ibuprofen, hot tub, massage, acupuncture, and then physical therapy for 5 weeks but yet the pain intensified. I was waiting for the doctor (my primary) to send me to a pain clinic 3 weeks out. I took FMLA leave from work as I was emotionally and physically depleted. At last resort, I went to a healer in polarity that referred me to Dr. Anne Marie. I am 100% better 5 weeks later (today). I saw immediate relief the next day after my evaluation visit as I had a huge revealing during the night (a feverish type of symptom went through my body). I went back to work after only 10 days of being out and have now been biking the last 2 weeks (after Dr. Anne Marie’s advice).
When I first began to see Dr. Anne Marie, I had back pain, neck pain, and jaw discomfort. Today I have pain relief in my back and increased flexibility. I have also found relief of stress in my shoulders and I now have the ability to open my jaw without pain.
Before my adjustment I wouldn’t get a good night sleep. Today I woke up feeling great. I got a good night sleep and the night before I also had a good sleep. So I started to wonder why? What was I doing that was so different? Then I realized that on Tuesday I had my back adjusted. Thanks Anne Marie!
When I first began to see Dr. Anne Marie I was having severe jaw pain due to TMJ. I was unable to chew food without pain and discomfort and I often had to take pain medication just to sleep. Today I am almost completely pain free and I am able to chew food again. I thought I would have to deal with my TMJ forever but I have never felt better. Thank you so much Dr. Anne Marie!
