Our patients speak out:
I have been suffering from chronic back pain since 2003. I have been told my many specialists and therapists that the long hours I spend on a computer often trigger these kinds of issues. To make matters worse I was involved in a car accident in 2004. My life since then has been filled with pain and depression. I’m a single mother so giving up and going on disability was out of the question. The combination of wanting to give my son a better upbringing than I had as well as wanting to show him the value of hard work kept me going. But as the years went on it became harder and harder to keep up. Eventually my neck would lock up and my back would be in such pain that I couldn’t get out of bed. I went to physical therapy twice. It helped get me back on my feet, but sadly only provided temporary relief. By 2007 I had given up on going back to physical therapy. I didn’t want to put more time and money towards a temporary fix. My doctor prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxers. At first these helped to at least get me to sleep at night by dulling the pain and making me sleepy. But over time they stopped working.
Just recently I was talking with friends and discussing people we knew who were suffering from ongoing chronic pain. Many of them mix alcohol with their medication to dull the pain and could no longer hold a job! Sure, they were all older than I; but this thought frightened me – is that my future? By this point my neck was locking on an almost constant basis, I couldn’t lift my arms up long enough to do my hair, and I was crying every day because I felt so hopeless. So I made another appointment with my doctor and told him of my fears and anxiety about my pain. I wanted to know what was wrong with me once and for all and fix it! He ended up referring me to a local rheumatologist because one of the tests he ran indicated I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. My aunt has that, so I thought it could be possible. It could certainly explain the constant pain. But when I went to see the rheumatologist he told me he didn’t believe it was R.A. He spent about 5 minutes with me and diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. He also told me he “didn’t have time to go over all the symptoms” with me and to “get some exercise and call back” if I didn’t feel better.
I actually felt worse after speaking with the rheumatologist. I felt dismissed and I felt misdiagnosed. I’m no doctor, but the information that he gave me to read on fibromyalgia didn’t seem to match up with what I had been experiencing! I tried calling local doctors who specialized in fibromyalgia for a second opinion, but was turned away because I was not already a patient. Then I did a Google search and found the Health Solutions Group website. After reading through it I finally felt hopeful again – something I hadn’t felt in years! I must’ve sent Dr. Hayes a 5 page email filled with my woes!!! That very afternoon I got a call back from his receptionist Amanda – I had an appointment to see him the next day. Dr. Hayes performed a thorough exam… and most importantly, he listened to me! He told me he didn’t think I had fibromyalgia either. He believed it was an undertreated neck injury and he came up with an aggressive game plan to help me get my pain back under control… no drugs necessary! I’ve been seeing him since December 2008, just over 2 months now, and I feel so much better! I knew things had really improved when I found myself focusing on an annoying hangnail on my finger one day – the thought suddenly entered my head that I was focusing on a hangnail and not my neck or back for a change. I was never so happy to have a hangnail! Now Dr. Hayes is also helping me map out a healthier dietary plan. In just two months the quality my life has drastically improved – I would recommend Dr. Hayes and Health Solutions Group to anyone who has been suffering from chronic pain. I only wish I had found that website sooner!

When I arrived at Dr Hayes office for my first visit I was very apprehensive. I had been to other doctors and they were unable to help me. After a week of difficult adjustments I felt much better.

I have always been a little hesitant to go to a chiropractor and I wouldnâ€™t go to just any chiropractor but Dr. Hayes is just wonderful! It is such a relief to not have back pain. He is an expert at what he does.
