ANSWER TO CHRONIC NECK AND SHOULDER PAIN
In 2000 I was injured while serving in the Army. Over the course of time since then, I have been to numerous doctors, had about every medical test you could imagine, taken all sorts of medications, and been offered several surgeries by a number of different surgeons --- even though none of them could really tell me what was wrong with me. My pain was so bad that it had affected every area of my life. I could not do anything productive. I could not sleep. I could not turn my head to look over my shoulder. Heck, I could not even reach my wallet in my rear pocket. I had tried chiropractic before so when someone told me about Dr. Schierling, I was skeptical. I felt it was my last resort. After going through a handful of treatments over the past six months, I must say that every aspect of my life is infinitely better. I am grateful for the work being done in this office.

It's true. Ask any combat veteran and they will echo General Sherman's words. War is hell. Thank goodness that we have the greatest field-trauma facilities and doctors on the planet for our soldiers injured in action. But what happens when one's injuries are physical, yet invisible? Huh? What does this statement mean? Allow me to explain.
Although TBI'S could fall into this same category, once you understand the nature of FASCIA, you can very well understand how it can become Chronic Pain's PERFECT STORM. The following is a testimonial received last week from an individual who was injured by a tank almost a decade and a half ago. We are respecting his right to privacy by leaving out his name. I can assure you that this individual's pain / disability was off the chart, and that before coming to see me, had been through every test and treatment that the military had to offer for CHRONIC NECK PAIN / CHRONIC SHOULDER PAIN ----- two problems that are so often seen together, they are often one. As is typical, they played it off and blamed it on DEPRESSION.
I thank you for your service to our country!
