I was having terrible trouble driving to work. I would be forced to pull over on the highway to get out and stretch my sciatic pain. Once day after standing my usual 12 hours (as a chef), it hit me like a bolt of lightning as I was standing in the middle of an important event. I just sat on the floor and burst into tears (anyone with sciatic pain knows what I am talking about). I had to go home ASAP and find a doctor fast. After calling all around with no responses or intelligent solutions I fell on deaf ears. Still crying in severe pain I happened across Dr. Michael Guadagnino in the yellow pages. When I called I had sniffled through such an intriguing story to his secretary that He Called Me back with in the next 5 minutes and said, “please come in right away I CAN help you”. After the first visit alone I was at least able to limp. I will never forget that feeling of being almost paralyzed or crippled. He thought it was best to send me for some cortisone shots at first then we started a weekly treatment regimen. After about 3 months I could actually go back to work. I still had to get a few more shots and keep up my appointments with Dr. G, but now I could function without crippling pain.
Six months later Valentines Day arrived! Upon my visit to my now “HAPPY PLACE” Dr. G introduced me to his new DRX9000! This was to be the Best Valentines Day ever for me. Which goes to show how bad my relationships have been (ha ha).
Not only was I to be treated kindly by the staff, but also I was the first patient in the office who to got use this new machine. I can still smell the new leather. But that’s not all. Dr. G is so good at his profession that I even got to watch the Honeymooners as I got treated! I never told him this but that day I cried a little bit, for all I had come through to get to this point and now I was on the road to recovery without the THREAT of SURGERY all the others demanded.
Thank God for Dr. G and his persistence for a “cure without the need for surgery”. He spared me a lifetime of regret from painful aging from surgical treatment.
The DRX9000 treatments went so well and were literally painless; I can’t believe how different a person I am today. I still keep up my appearance as maintenance with Dr. G in what is now know by all staff to be “My Happy Place”. I am a better person for it.
To this day I still recommend people who relate to my story to see this “Master of Chiropractic Care” Dr. Michael Guadagnino.
And on a personal note to the Doctor, in the immortal words of Ralph Kramden…..”Baby You’re the Greatest”.
Thank you for the ability to function again
