My name is Christine. I’m 31 years old and have had migraine headaches since I was 4 years old. I have had every test done imaginable and have tried every treatment option, including Chiropractic when I was younger. All treatment worked to some extent to treat the migraine once they occurred but nothing prevented them… until now. I have been getting adjustment from Dr. Ruocco since February and I have not had a migraine since March! (I used to get an average of 3 migraines a month, lasting days at a time.) The migraines were the primary reason that I had an evaluation at Chiropractic Works, but I learned so much more during the information night. I also suffered from asthma, hip pain, and allergies which all began when I was little. My newest problem was gastric reflux, which I did not even think Chiropractic care could help until I met Dr. Ruocco.
When I began treatment I was taking mediation for migraines, gastric reflux, asthma and a lot of Advil for hip pain. I stopped ALL medication 1 month after beginning Chiropractic treatment. The first month of treatment was rough. I was sore and my symptoms got worse for a short time. Dr. Ruocco explained that it was called ‘regressing’ (retracing) and that my treatment was working. I trusted him, stuck with it and he was right. All of my symptoms went away. This is a big deal for me being a Registered Nurse. Modern Medicine is what I know. But I also knew that I was only 31 and that I didn’t want to be taking a bucket of pills to be symptom-free for the rest of my life. I wanted to be without symptoms and Dr. Ruocco has done that for me. I am very grateful for my cousin who first told me about Chiropractic Works and to Dr. Ruocco, they both changed my life.
