When I started, I had chronic mid and lower back pain secondary to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I also had a bulging disc in my neck that severely limited my range of motion. Both of these conditions interfered with every aspect of my life. I was having problems sleeping, so I was also extremely fatigued. Before I received my first adjustment, [the doctor] asked me to take a Rand 36 questionnaire (a study to determine my quality of life – because of my MS).
My neck pain from the bulging disc is very infrequent and much less painful when it does bother me. My mid and lower back pain is also much less. I sleep much better so my level of fatigue has decreased. At the end of my initial schedule of care I repeated the Rand 36 questionnaire and [Advanced Spinal Care] was able to measure that every aspect of my quality of life has improved since beginning care!

I came in to see Dr. Lapenski for low back pain, but I also had an enlarged spleen, a low WBC count, and chronic fatigue all associated with my rheumatoid arthritis. To my surprise, not only did my low back pain resolve, but my spleen decreased in size, my WBC count went back up and I have more energy. It has been amazing!
One of the major improvements was my carpal tunnel. I had been told previously that I would have to have surgery within the next year or so. It was totally gone! No symptoms whatsoever! Then there were the ‘small’ things: I no longer would get dizzy when I closed my eyes; I was sleeping much better; and my sensitivity to scents has all but disappeared. Now, several months later, no hand tremors at all! And my head tremors are almost non-existent, so seldom and so slight that they are hardly noticeable. I expect that they too will be 100% gone shortly.
