I’m Janet Hendley and I’m a patient of Ju Chiropractic Wellness Center. The problem that brought me, first of all, to the wellness center was a real pain in the neck. I had a lot of neck pain and I’d even have a consult for surgery and I really did not want to do surgery. I’ve done lots of different things and I was running out of options. My chiropractor in Greensboro, because that’s where
I live, in Greensboro, suggested I came for a consult and Dr. Ju was actually
in Raleigh at the time and I said, that’s way too far there’s no way I can make that work but she persisted. And I was so impressed with the initial consultation, which was very thorough. So the pain in my neck really started to impact my quality of life and restrict how long I could work, I couldn’t sew, nothing was comfortable. I walk, I’m a very fast walker, and I found that just walking, my neck and shoulders were agony. So, it was starting to really affect the things that I value in my life, in the quality of my life. I used to get a lot of migraine headaches. I may have a week with almost constant migraines enough to impact my normal life. So how I feel now is night and day. There’s just no comparison. I work a lot on my computer. I garden, I walk, I sew, all of the things that had been limited, I do pretty much for as long as I need to. I notice my balance is so much better. I did not realize how poor my balance had become. It also affected my confidence walking down stairs and things, and I didn’t even realize it. So that’s a huge improvement for me. Lifestyle change, and this truly has been a lifestyle change. This was actually a way of improving the quality of my life. I will be able to continue doing the things that are important to me. I really enjoy coming here. I guess that’s the thing that surprised me as well. That, and I’ve been doing chiropractic work for more than 25 years, but the difference here is I get to work. I tell people, that this place is like a wonderful combination of a very high end gym and a medieval torture chamber. Equipment looked rather alarming but it’s very very effective. The major difference here is the assessment. No one had ever taken as many x-rays. What really makes sense to me was taking x-rays when I’m moving and they find out what happens when you move your neck, when you bend your neck, when you turn your head. But it made total sense to me. I’d never had such a thorough assessment. The other thing that really is different, I get to work out here. This is not passive, this is active. I have to take ownership of my own recovery. How much more can I get, you know? What else can I do? I was very keen to make the difference. The Denneroll that I have to use twice a day for 20 minutes, I do religiously, is worth it. The hour, well I guess it’s two hours driving, that I now do once every two weeks, it’s so worth the time. I can live a full life, which I was not doing and I was really starting to get rather depressed at the thought of feeling like a really old woman prematurely. The thing that impresses me most, when I tell people, I see their eyes widen like this. X-rays at the beginning of the treatment, I was told my spine was out of alignment by about 16, 17 degrees. I listed to my left. I didn’t even know that I did that. At the end, it was only six degrees out of alignment, which is pretty minimal out of alignment but what a difference, from the beginning to the end. And those are measurable results. Yes, I feel so much better, I feel like I have way more energy. But I also have this concrete, definite measurable results, that’s impressive. One more thing I’d like to add, the staff here are absolutely phenomenal. It never ceases to amaze me how dedicated they are to their patients, to the well being of the patients, but I also see them being dedicated to the wellness of each other. It looks like a wonderful environment to work and I’m always very, very happy to come here and I recommend anyone who actually needs a spirit uplift. This will do it, as well as fix your spine.
