What led to your decision to try chiropractic? Fellow cyclists recommended a good “sports-minded” chiropractor; many recommended Dr. Rodwin. It was either the chiropractor’s table, or hang up my bike for good! I chose the former.
Had you been to a doctor of chiropractic previously? No.
Did you have any doubts that chiropractic would help you? Absolutely! Although Dr. Rodwin couldn’t guarantee complete recovery, she believed some improvement would follow her treatment.
What were your first impressions of chiropractic, this office and doctor? Very favourable – knowledgeable and helpful doctor, friendly staff, efficiently run office.
What recommendations were made by Dr. Rodwin? Detailed assessment, regular adjustments, and ART. On my own: LOTS of stretching, weights, and core strengthening.
Describe your results, including your time involved with the treatments: AMAZING! Complete recovery. I just completed a four- day, 625 km cycling tour (both flats and mountains). I did have to be patient as it took at least a year of treatment to get where I am today.
