Back Pain

I thought I was OK.  But all the sudden it seemed my back just gave out.  Brought me down to my knees and I was almost afraid to stand up.  It was totally immobilizing.  I remember thinking this is a chiropractic thing and I called Dr. Sowerby.

When I left after my first appointment I felt like I could dance right out into the parking lot.  I felt good!

I’m fine.  I even told Dr. Sowerby about my thumb hurting and he was able fix that for me, too.

I recommend Dr. Sowerby to others who want the same kind of relief.

Before I came to Dr. Sowerby’s office I had serious back pain for 10 years.  I had to use a back brace and I took pain pills.  Although I consulted many medical doctors my problem was never corrected.  They only gave me more pain pills.

After only 6 treatments with Dr. Sowerby my pain is gone and I do not wear my back brace.  I am amazed and delighted!

My life has improved a great deal.  I have no pain and I am happy!  My friends have noticed the way I walk is much improved.

I highly recommend Dr. Sowerby !

I came to Dr. Sowerby with extreme pain in my lower back and pain that ran down my leg to my foot.  I wasn’t able to lift my right arm above my head because of the pain.  The pain kept me from playing with my kids and golfing.  Even a good night’s sleep was impossible!

I had tried physical therapy and over the counter pain relievers but the pain kept returning.

Then I came to see Dr. Sowerby.  He started me on a program and after just a few weeks I noticed that I was able to get out of bed without any pain.  The pain in my leg ceased and I have no more problems with my shoulder.

I play with my kids, golf and sleep all without pain!  I can even touch my toes without pain and my wife has noticed I don’t complain about feeling bad anymore!

Before coming to Dr. Sowerby’s office I had a lot of low back pain.  My neck was always tight and I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders.  I also had pain in both of my arms.

It was hard to do the things I wanted to do.  Getting out of bed and getting going was difficult.  I had to stop lifting and I was not able to pick up my daughter.  Yard work was very difficult even though I tried to take it easy.

I tried stretching and pain pills, but the pain was still there.

I noticed my neck felt better with the first adjustment from Dr. Sowerby.  Then just a few adjustments later my low back began to feel better.  Now my left arm feels good and my right is improving all the time.  Lifting is easier and I can pick up my little girl again!  My family and friends have noticed the changes.

I have more energy and I’m more aware of how my body feels now.

(UPDATE!)  After coming to Dr. Sowerby for a few months and following the program he recommended, I feel great.  I haven’t felt this good since I was in high school!


Every night I have had severe lower back pain.  Over the past three years it has gotten progressively worse.  Exercise, resting, and over the counter drugs are what I did to manage the pain before.

Then I came to see Dr. Sowerby and I felt a difference after two or three visits.  Now I feel great!

I had difficulty at my job, as it involves maintenance work at a school.  My mom has noticed that I am not complaining about my back.

I’m amazed how much it’s helped!

Me see a chiropractor?  Ha!  Never thought I’d see the day until I woke one morning and was unable to even stand up.  All of the lifting, pulling and moving that my job entails finally took its toll.

Dr. Sowerby was the first person I called and he immediately got me in for an appointment.

Me, see a chiropractor? Yup!  And, thank God I did.  After a week of visiting his office, less than a week actually, I once again feel like a human being.

I am very impressed by the professionalism and sincerity I’ve experienced at Dr. Sowerby’s office.

I injured my lower back when I leaned over to pet my dog.  I took pain killers, but they were no help at all.  I was in so much pain that I could not even walk upright.

After my first visit with Dr. Sowerby, I could walk straight again!  Not only did chiropractic help me with my back pain, but my headaches and stomach problems were solved as well.

I came to Dr. Sowerby for the pain in my lower back and right hip.  They were very sore!  I couldn’t stand or bend over without pain.  I couldn’t work.  Even sitting for very long was not possible.

I had tried several over the counter remedies, but only got short term relief.

My first visit to Dr. Sowerby brought me some relief.  I started a treatment program and now I feel so much better.  Even my co-worker noticed he didn’t have to do as much work because I was feeling better.

I feel great!  There is nothing I can’t do; well I still can’t run a 4 minute mile!  Ha ha!  I am back dancing again and having a great time!

Three years ago I slipped on some ice, fell and hit my head. I had back pain, headaches and leg pain.  I walked daily and I went to physical therapy, but was not experiencing any improvements.  When I was done with physical therapy the therapist told me to go and “Have a happy life”.  How could I when I still had headaches and back pain?

I had become resigned to living with the pain.

My son was having great success with his chiropractic visits with Dr. Sowerby.  He encouraged me to come meet him to see if he could help.

I felt so hopeful after my first meeting with Dr. Sowerby.  I started coming in and noticed improvements right away.

Even my friend noticed changes in my mobility.

Before coming to Dr. Sowerby my social life had diminished.  There were no lunch dates with friends because I was not up to it.  Now I don’t even think about the pain I had and I continue to be hopeful for the future.

I was struggling with pain in my left leg and lower back.  It had progressed to a point where it was affecting my twice annual golf trip.  There was morning stiffness and a tired, dragging feeling after the usual thirty six holes.

Since starting with Dr. Sowerby, my general every day motion has improved.  I noticed a higher energy level which helps in my busy insurance business.

My golf game has improved, the morning after stiffness and that tired, dragging feeling is gone!  I didn’t feel “awful” when I started chiropractic care, but I feel so much better now!

I had chronic backache and headaches, but I just kept going.  I endured the pain and didn’t complain.  I took aspirin, but with only limited success.  I finally decided that I did not want to live with the pain anymore!

Since I came to see Dr. Sowerby I am virtually pain-free!

Before I came to Dr. Sowerby I had a stiff neck, sore back and I had trouble walking.  I found it difficult to play sports and running was not easy.  I tried weight lifting, saw another chiropractor and took ibuprofen for the pain, all with little success.

Then I came to see Dr. Sowerby and in the second week of treatment everything loosened up.  Now I feel good and have no pain in my back.  I feel I can do anything.  I don’t get stiff after sports or a long day at work.

After I was involved in a car accident I went to physical therapy, but when they released me the pain persisted.  The pain and stiffness got so bad I could barely move my neck.  Driving became almost impossible since I couldn’t turn my head to see traffic.  I was taking Ibuprofen, Darvocet and muscle relaxants.  It took a long time for them to work, sometimes days!  And what relief I got was only temporary.

My neighbor told about Dr. Sowerby and said that he might be able to help me with the pain.  I came to Dr. Sowerby and he started getting my neck back in order.  I was nervous at first but he explained things so I always knew what was going on.  After beginning treatment I soon found I could move my neck more easily and with less and less pain.

I had also been going to another doctor for more than 4 years for Irritable Bowel Syndrome.  I was given fiber supplements and medicine, but the pain and bloating continued.

Dr. Sowerby told me he might be able to help me.  Then I did a Diet Diary and a Symptom Survey and he did some testing on me.  Based on that, I was put on a personalized nutritional program that included diet changes and therapeutic doses of some natural supplements.  Soon after I felt better than I had in years.

Now I tell all of my friends how good I feel!  Thank you, Dr. Sowerby!
