I just moved to Austin and my back went out, before I found a local physician. I have degenerative disc disease and have been loosing one about every three years. Ten years of a pain, and my previous doctor would prescribe muscle relaxers and recommend ice while staying underweight. With debilitating episodes increasing, I asked about Chiropractic care, but he was against it. He told me I needed surgery, but because of the risks, I should put it off as long as possible.
When my new physician recommended I see Dr. Swanson, I was surprised, because of what my previous doctor has told me. My pain scale was at a 10, and I my blood pressure was off the charts when I should up at his clinic. The staff immediately got me in a room and began therapy. I was terrified to have anyone touch my back, but everything Dr. Swanson did relieved pain and pressure and within days, I was almost normal. His treatment recommendations are logical and easy to follow. Surgery has now become an option, rather than a necessity and each day I show such a marked improvement, that it is astounding my family and friends. Numerous other conditions, that are a direct result from my back, are dropping to the wayside every few days, I have surges of adrenaline from being pain-free, my back is not occupying my every waking thought and I am sleeping with out drugs, for the first time in 10 years. I’m indebted to him and his staff for changing not only my life, but my family’s as well.
