Review: Batchelor Chiropractic Clinic - Daniel C Batchelo...

I have a landscape business in Atlanta and last week while lifting my mower to put it in the back of my landscaping truck, I injured my lower back. We have been really busy lately burning the candle from both ends trying to keep up. The severe pain started in my lower back and then started to come down into the back of my left hamstring muscle. The muscle cramped up and I was unable to walk without limping. I told my crew to continue without me for the rest of the day because I knew that if I continued to work, I would be in spasm and tears before long. I am a big guy but this was a big pain. Its the 3rd time I have injured my lower back but by far the worst pain I have experienced so far. When I got home, I took a muscle relaxant and a strong pain killer that I kept just for that occasion. When I injured my knee last year, they took the edge off of my pain but this was different. I kept those drugs stashed away in the event I had another emergency. They did not help this pain a bit. One of my workers had been to Dr. Batchelor for his back and he recommended Dr. Batchelor highly so I called and made an appointment. His clinic is in Roswell and I have passed it hundreds of times. They have a chiropractic van with a kayak and a bike on top. I have actually competed against Dr. Batchelor in some endurance races in the past. The Batchelor van always caught my eye because I am a bachelor and a cyclist as well as a white water kayaker. The doc knew exactly where the pain was even before I told him. He used some things to reduce the swelling and pain and then he treated it by physically moving the bone off of the nerve. I could actually hear a clunk sound when the bone moved into position. I thought it was going to hurt but it didn't. As the bone shifted off of the nerve it seemed liked all the muscles in my body were able to relax again. Now I am back at work now and feeling very good. Thank the lord for Dr. Batchelor. I am not sure what I would have done had I not found him.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #14)
