My daughter Shelby began seeing Dr. Batterton after suffering from chronic ear infections as a toddler. We had Shelby’s adenoids removed and tubes placed in her ears. We thought this would be the end of her suffering from constant ear infections and congestion. The treatment seemed to work until March 2011 when she began to suffer from chronic ear infections and congestion. This time is was so bad that we had to rush her to the emergency room one weekend night to seek treatment.
After consulting with her pediatrician we sought the help of a pediatric ENT. The doctor suggested we treat her with a heavy dose of antibiotics to clear up the infection and even hinted at putting tubes back in her ears. After the infection had cleared we were told Shelby suffered from extreme allergies and the doctor suggested we do a skin test and sign her up for monthly allergy shots. After thinking about putting my eight yr old through skin testing and monthly shots I turned to Dr. Batterton.
I have been seeing Dr. Batterton for about 3 years for treatment of neck pain and I have always felt very comfortable under her care. I asked her if she thought chiropractic care could help with Shelby’s ear infections and allergies. She asked that we give Shelby weekly adjustments for a month before Shelby’s return visit to the ENT.
The results were fantastic! After her adjustments Shelby’s congestion decreased and her ears stopped hurting. An added bonus was Shelby loved coming to Dr. Batterton. She never hesitated to jump onto the table for her adjustments and would even ask to go the office on days we didn’t have an appointment.
It has now been seven months since she began seeing Dr. Batterton. Her infections have not returned and Shelby is no longer on any allergy medications. I love to brag about Dr. Batterton to all my friends when I hear them mention allergies or ear problems with their children. It works for us and Shelby continues to enjoy her monthly trips to see Dr. B!
It is my pleasure to share my story of restoration through chiropractic healing. When I came to Batterton Chiropractic on May 4, 2012, I knew the benefits awaiting me, as I had received treatment from a chiropractor previously.
Unfortunately he was over 45 minutes away and the effort to get the help I needed was not happening. Little did I know the best chiropractors in the universe, Dr. Paula Batterton and Dr. Michele Miller-Cobb, were right in my neighborhood, only 5 minutes away, and with a personal caring style that brings a healing all of it own!
Because of a stressful job situation that involves sitting in front of a computer all day, coupled with a serious auto accident and several other injuries of my shoulder, leg, ankle, and back, I was regularly plagued with migraines, neck, upper back and low back pain. My good friend, Ann Zallar, highly recommended Dr. Batterton for chiropractic care. It was the best decision I made to begin care as I wasn’t even aware of the increased stress awaiting me in my life. Within the first week, my migraines ceased. The pain in my back also quickly subsided through regular treatments, bringing restored energy, strength, stamina, focus, flexibility and uplifted spirits. Without my chiropractic care, I don’t know how I would have successfully and excellently made it through the planning and preparation of a wedding, followed very quickly by the declining health and death of a loved one. I missed a few appointments during these extra stressful and time consuming months and my body noticed and let me know I needed to stay on my regular care. I don’t want to leave out the Lord and His enabling and healing, but I am convinced He has used Batterton Chiropractic to restore me fully and abundantly.
When I walked into the Batterton Chiropractic Clinic, I was at my wits end. I had been in pain for 3 months straight, my anxiety levels were off the charts high, and was exhausted all of the time. I was having a severe panic attack every day, and after seeing a number of doctors and deciding that I didn’t want to be on modern medication, I sought out Chiropractic Care. After my initial exam, it was very apparent why I was feeling the way I was. My top two vertebrae were severely inflamed which is where the nerves that control anxiety and motions are housed. I was started on a 3 times a week treatment plan right away for 8 weeks. During that time I saw a lot of improvement as far as my pain and some for my anxiety. I also went through some dips. There were days that I didn’t feel like I was getting better, the pain would return and my anxiety would skyrocket. I wanted to give up. But I stuck with it, because as Dr. Batterton says, it took time to get your spine the way it is, it is going to take time to get it back where it needs to be. As long as I was willing to put my trust in the care of the doctors here and not give up, they were willing to not give up on me. With the support of the staff, my husband and seeing a homeopath, I have achieved great results in 6 months.
1. I am almost pain free, or at least when I do have pain it is tolerable.
2. My anxiety is now manageable and I do not have daily panic attacks.
3. My overall health has improved and I feel more energetic.
4. I have learned so much about my own body and health by speaking with Dr. Batterton and Dr. Miller, asking questions and reading the weekly handouts they give.
I am now do to 2 visits per week, and hope to bring it down to 1 soon. It took a lot of faith and support to get where I am today, but the staff at Batterton really does invest in your health. All you have to do is take that next step to invest in you.
