Chiropractic Success Story
Kelli McDonald“When I was pregnant with our second child, I had back pain that wouldn’t go away. I didn’t want to take pain medication and at its worst, the pain radiated into my neck and shoulder. I didn’t think that I could make it through my pregnancy and then I heard about chiropractic. I was ecstatic when after my first adjustment, my back pain went away.”
My name is Kelli McDonald. When I was pregnant with our second child, I had back pain on my right side that wouldn’t subside. The pain affected my back and also radiated into my neck and shoulder. At this point, I was only half way through my pregnancy and I wasn’t sure that I was going to make it the rest of the way through. I didn’t want to take pain medication and this is when my sister-in-law suggested that I see a chiropractor.
I was ecstatic when after my first adjustment my back pain went away. I had been to a chiropractor previously that only took care of my symptoms and wasn’t trying to “fix” my problems. After Dr. Ryan showed me my X-rays, I realized that I also had neck problems that I’d had for quite some time, which didn’t allow me to look up without pain.
I was able to have a pain-free pregnancy from my first adjustment on. I continued chiropractic care after my daughter was
born and haven’t stopped. My third pregnancy was also pain-free through the entire 9 months, and I’m still pain-free and
won’t be stopped!
They (Chiro One of Romeoville) are wonderful with kids, too, and this prompted my husband and I to bring the kids in for care. Evan is four and Faith is two and both get adjusted three times a week. When our third child, Alex, was born we asked Dr. Ryan if he would adjust him and Dr. Ryan took the day off of work to come to the hospital and adjusted Ryan when he was only three hours old. Everyone at the Romeoville office is exceptional. They know everyone by first name and we’re like family.
