Travelled from SK to receive NUCCA care
“In 2004 after being hit in the head with a basketball my life changed forever. I became so sick with symptoms of lightheadedness, nervousness, pain all over my body, pain at the base of my skull and jaw, along with stabbing headaches. My heart rate seemed to stay elevated and my blood pressure kept dropping like I was in an elevator. I felt nauseous all the time, extremely weak and overall like my entire nervous system was malfunctioning. I was no longer able to work or care for myself and felt like I was in a constant state of “near fainting”. I saw several medical doctors, tried tons of medication, had many, many tests including CT scans, MRI’s and more. Medical doctors diagnosed me with Post Concussion syndrome with atypical Migraines along with Neurocardiogenic Syncope (a form of Dysautonomia). But they had no cure. I had quit driving, could barely leave the house and I was only 24 years old.
After doing some searching I learned about Upper Cervical Chiropractic. I made an appointment with Dr. Sloane Hunter in Calgary. Our first appointment she explained everything to me about what was happening to my body and my health. After my first NUCCA adjustment, I became so relaxed and got to breathe in a huge breath of air. That night I slept like a baby and woke up refreshed, a feeling that I hadn’t felt in years. That first adjustment gave me such relief, and the hope that I could have my life back. Over the course of my treatment my life slowly came back to me. I can say with the utmost gratitude in my heart that Dr. Hunter saved my life with NUCCA care. I now have 3 beautiful children, work part time and enjoy each day that I have of health. I have held my alignment up to 4 years at a time and have encountered thousands of people with a similar story to mine. I now know there is a huge community of people who have had their quality of life saved by NUCCA care. Dr. Hunter is patient, caring and goes above and beyond for myself and her patients. She truly wants to see each of them get better and is devoted to making that happen. She has been one of the biggest blessings in my life.”
