Over Medicated

  • Over Medicated for Migraines

    Lisa F

    I began seeing my chiropractor in 2002. I used to suffer migraine headaches, to the point of hospitalization on occasion. I was taking Codeine, Imotrex and recieving demerol from the hospital when they were really bad. I had been to numerous Doctors, including 2 neurologists. I had 2 MRI's, and numerous Catscans, but there was nothing wrong with me. I was eventually put on an anti-depressant as well, they assumed I was depressed, thus the headaches. I visited Inside Out Family Chiropractic, I had a full check up and x-rays. When I had my report of findings, Dr Ryan ( My Chiropractor), told me my neck was basically bent the wrong way. I saw the x-ray and felt sick to my stomach. I was angry as there was something wrong and all the "experts" told me it was all in my head. I began getting adjusted, and within 6 months my migraines completely subsided. I went off all the medication and have never looked back.

  • Severe Anxiety and Depression

    I started seeing Dr. Nico for wellness because I heard that it could improve my health. I was pleasantly surprised to have my severe anxiety and depression start to improve and eventually it completely resolved. I was able to come off of ALL my medications, and I have become the happiest and healthiest that I’ve ever been! Thank you 100% Chiropractic in Marietta, GA for giving me my life back.

  • Severe Migraines and Over Medicated

    My mom was in a very bad car accident when she was in her 20’s. All of my life, she has suffered from chronic migraines and, as a consequence, she had become addicted to pain pills. Almost every day she took around 9 pills for her migraines, and on really bad days, we couldn’t get her up from the bed. One day she was helping me move to the US and after spending the day carrying heavy objects around, she ended up crying over the pain in her neck and head. Despite suffering from crippling migraines for over 20 years, I had never seen my mom cry from it. So I decided I had enough and told her that she HAD to go to a chiropractor and that the pills weren’t the solution. So a few days later she began going to one back home and around two weeks later she called me, more excited than I have ever heard her, telling me that she felt better than she had felt in a very long time, that her migraines were better and that whenever she left her Chiropractor she felt immediate relief. That was almost a year ago and Im proud to say that my mom was waned off most of her pain medication over the months. She still has headaches, but not as severe as before. She’s completely in love with Chiropractic and that is what made me decide once and for all that Chiropractic is what Im supposed to be doing Woth my life.
