Simply Amazing! – After a difficult birth my youngest daughter was diagnosed with Erb's Palsy which left her with no movement in right shoulder or elbow. During her first 4 months we saw an occupational therapist and between that and time she gradually regained some movement in those joints but not enough. At 4 months our neurologist told us that if he didn't see two types of movement over the next few weeks he'd be sending us for further testing (some very painful) and to see a neurosurgeon to discuss the possibility of surgery on the nerve's leaving the spine. Talk about one scared mama!
It was at that point that we sought out chiropractic care. Dr. Davis had been recommended to us by several friends so where to take our daughter was an easy decision. They were even able to get us in the next day!
At our first appointment Dr. Davis was great about explaining what she would do and how she could help. She really took the time to get to know us and she was genuinely interested in seeing my daughter recover. We felt like more than "just another patient" which is something I hadn't felt from our OT, neurologist, and even our pediatrician. After just two adjustments my daughter had achieved one of the two movements that the neurologist wanted to see! We've now been going for 3 months and the changes I've seen in my daughter's arm are extraordinary! At this point if you didn't know she had Erb's Palsy you wouldn't notice.
I do believe that she would have regained some of the movement with time but I can say with great confidence that I don't think we would have seen such great results nor as quickly as we did. I'm also certain that we'd have been talking with a neurosurgeon and possibly doing surgery.
Dr. Davis has been such a valuable part of my daughter's medical team. I cannot say enough good things about her care and what she has done for our family.
