Jadynne says that, over time, a lack of exercise combined with weight gain began causing her back problems.
â€śI think it was in May of 2007, just after we reÂturned to our home in Minnesota from Florida, that I realized how bad it had gotten,â€ť remembers Jadynne. â€śI couldnâ€™t walk upstairs. I was terribly limited in my mobility.â€ť
Jadynne scheduled an appointment with the Mayo Clinic in Rochester.
â€śAfter putting me through MRIs and CT scans, they suggested I go into physical therapy, which I did for several months,â€ť recalls Jadynne, â€śbut I didnâ€™t reÂally see any improvement.â€ť
By the time Jadynne and her husband returned to Florida in September, she couldnâ€™t walk.
â€śAt that point my pain was just unbearable, so I asked a friend if she knew of a chiropractor,â€ť says Jadynne. â€śI had never even been to one before, but when she recommended Dr. Johnson, I scheduled an appointment.
â€śThat was in October, and while I wasnâ€™t yet wheelÂchair bound, I was close.â€ť
Dr. Johnson treated Jadynne with conventional chiropractic treatments for a few months before recomÂmending MUS.
â€śI wasnâ€™t at all sure about MUS, so I phoned my doctor at the Mayo Clinic,â€ť recounts Jadynne, â€śand when he didnâ€™t try to dissuade me, I decided to go ahead with it.
â€śAt the end of the third treatment, I got up and gave Dr. Johnson a hug. I just couldnâ€™t believe I alÂready felt that much better. But at the same time, once the pain was gone, I realized how much strength Iâ€™d lost in my arms and legs.â€ť
Johnson Medical Center has relationships with personal trainers who can teach Dr. Johnsonâ€™s patients how to strengthen their core muscles following MUS.
â€śIâ€™m now working with a trainer,â€ť acknowledges Jadynne, â€śand I donâ€™t think Iâ€™ve ever felt as good as I do right nowhow .â€ť FHCNâ€“Kris KlineJeff Johnson
