Cherry Hill, NJ
For almost a year I suffered on and off with pain in my lower back, neck and hip. I took over the counter pain medication like so many of us do to find relief, but the pain would only return in a couple of hours. The pain began to grow with such intensity that it began to affect my sleeping, standing for long periods of time and going walking with friends. I hesitated going to my General Practitioner because I knew the end result would be prescription pain medicine and that was not an option for me. I was looking for a more holistic approach to relieving the pain and was leaning towards going to an acupuncturist. Since my husband had success with a Chiropractor in the past for a back injury, he encouraged me to find one in the area. I did a lot of research on line through the Chiropractor Directory and was most impressed with the Dr. Cassara and the reviews from patients about the level of care and success from the treatments they received. I remember speaking to Dr. Cassara over the phone when I called to schedule an appointment. On a scale of 1-10, my pain at that time was about a 9. He was so calm and reassuring that I decided to give the treatments a try. I have to admit that those first two weeks of treatment were very painful for me. I had ignored what my body was telling me for so long. To find the relief that I was praying for, I had to commit to the treatments. By the third week I began to see progress and it only got better from there. I was able to sleep through the night with no pain. That was a major accomplishment! As the weeks progressed I began to be able to live a more active lifestyle as I had in the past. I attended a concert recently with friends and was able to stand for over 2-1/2 hours with no discomfort or pain. What an amazing feeling! Dr. Cassara truly listened with genuine concern for my wellbeing and to my desire to resume a healthier lifestyle that was now limited because of the pain. He recommended a course of treatment that worked and encouraged me every step of the way. I have learned so much and am feeling so much better and energized! All of the information that he shares from the sessions with him, the patient packages and the website all point you towards living a lifestyle free from pain. I highly recommend Dr. Cassara and the Chiropractic care he provides. I have learned the benefits of how a healthy spine leads to a healthier lifestyle!
