When you play sports or work out, you are bound to have aches and pains, or an injury at some time.
Over the years I have assembled a dream team that literally keeps me on my feet. What’s my secret for staying active? I go in for osteopathic treatments before my pains become a severe problem that can take me out of the game.
Dr. Hoang has been a godsend for me. Before I met her, I was in a car accident that resulted in a herniated nerve in my neck. I was in constant pain. At times my arm and hand would be numb because the nerve was being pinched. I ended up with damage to 80% of my ulnar nerve. I was seriously worried if I would ever be able to live a normal life again. It took three epidural steroid injections to get me out of chronic pain. The problem is that epidural injections have risks and are costly.
Now that I’m older and wiser, whenever I feel my body is going out of alignment, Dr. Hoang treats me with gentle osteopathic manipulations that not only treat the pain, but also prevents future injuries by realigning my body. I literally hobble into her office in pain, and leave walking tall and feeling fab!
Take home point: Be mindful of the structure of your body. Osteopathic Manipulative therapy is a type of natural medicine that can treat and even prevent illness or injury
