Anyone with back issues can pull up a laundry list of all their varied attempts to find pain relief. Unfortunately, although these stories and methods may vary, the results are typically the same: they spent a lot of time and money and are no better off than they were when they started. Well, my experience was no different....until I discovered Esprit wellness. After a decade of severe spinal discomfort due to a mild scoliosis and severe postural imbalances, I finally found a place that is as determined and methodical about providing relief as I am about attaining it. In the past, I have been to several chiropractors, some better than others, but they all provided the same assembly line back cracking that never offered any tangible improvement for my condition and somehow, they still insisted that three visits a week was continally necessary...there was no plan for completion, just eternal adjustments. It's like they were trying to create a dependence. In addition, I also went to several Physical therapists, which although a different technique, was still plagued with that textbook, assembly line therapy which basically amounted to "stim" and then some basic concoction of a lightweight gym session. It seemed like they put more care and time into billing my insurance than actually digging into my specific needs. My experience at Esprit wellness was refreshingly different from any experience prior. The initial diagnostic work was lightyears ahead of anything ever performed. Dr. Sid took the time to assess my condition, provide an cohesive outline of his goals working with me, project the results he believes are attainable, and even included completion as part of his game plan, a concept that seemed foreign to any chiropractors Ive previously worked with. His acuity for detail is stellar as he clearly has an passion for the spine and helping people with scoliosis. Esprit wellness also utilizes physical therapy to supplement the chiropractic. They were fortunate to find Dr. Rofe, who is just as passionate, ambitious, and competent in the PT field as Dr. Sid is in chiropractic. Unlike the physical therapists I have experienced in the past, Dr. Rofe has taken the time to understand my pains and muscular deficiencies which have created severe imbalances in my posture and body mechanics. His impressively thorough understanding of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems has allowed him to pinpoint problems even with the smallest of muscles. It is with this method, that he has been able to provide custom therapy for my needs as opposed to the generic, exercise mill that many other PTs are plagued by. Although he does in fact implement muscle strengthening techniques, he accomplishes this using handson work, which he is extremely proficient and effective at. In this way, he can precisely gauge the effectiveness of this exercise and ensure that the muscles he intends to stimulate are in fact being stimulated. In addition, Dr. Rofe has worked on me using range of motion/mobility techniques and even has performed some soft tissue work on huge, persistent knots that have plagued me for years. All in all, I can guarantee that an experience at Esprit wellness is far above any other around.
