I fell off my bike w my dog, had fractured my elbow and obviously messed up something in my sciatic area that linked down to my foot. I’d been hurting for over a month. I KNEW the two areas of pain were connected, but no one would address my concerns. I was limping, couldn’t walk my dog anymore, and it was depressing. I had been to another chiropractor that made me feel like my spine was in horrible condition and said for $2100 he could sign me up for a program to help me. He would not address ANY concerns about my pain near my sciatica or my foot pain.
I also went to the Dr. who helped with my elbow, he x-rayed my spine, he said it was in normal shape for my age, and did not see any issues. (Unlike the previous chiropractor). He also couldn’t address my pain with foot and sciatic area. I got really frustrated. Then I saw Dr. Greenwood. He LISTENED to my concerns during my consultation, understood the connection, and went right to work on my piriformis muscle which is near my sciatica. Said it felt like a boulder. In 30 minutes he did some deep tissue work to release it, and did multiple adjustments and then gave me a couple simple exercises to do at home to help heal it. Next appt, 15 min of some more deep tissue work and adjustment. By second week, after 2nd appointment I was feeling 80% better and walking without a limp and taking my dog for walks again. One more 15 minute appointment with some more deep tissue work and adjustments and I did an 8 mile hike yesterday with my 20 year old son with very little pain (other than the normal stuff from hiking after not being very active for a while).
No X-rays, no long term programs, no scaring me with how my spine is in horrible condition, just listened to my concerns, went straight to the problem and helped heal the injury. Three appointments - $250, and gave me my life back!
If any of you have been struggling with muscle, tendon, lower back issues - please consider seeing him. He clearly isn’t out to sign you up for what you don’t need, and he’s very effective and intentional about fixing what you do need.
So thankful to have my life back again! Thank you Dr. Greenwood!
