Back Disc and Health Recovery-Efrain’s Case

In Efrain’s testimonial, he speaks of his initial injury when he fell off a cliff.  This lead the surgeons to fuse his ankle to leg instead of loosing his foot.

In this video, Dr. Ratkovic speaks about his recovery physically and his success as a banker.  Unfortunately, Efrain needed to compensate because of his injury short term.  Long term, his body’s compensatory movement caused a spinal disc problem and constant falls.

efrain-pre-x-rayImage 1: Dr. Ratkovic explains (and so does Efrain in his testimonial) how his x-ray analysis is the reason why he was having so much pain.  The vertical line in the image is where the spine should bend back toward.

efrain-post-x-rayImage 2: This second image is Efrain’s follow up x-ray a few months later.  See how his low back spine is behind the vertical line.  This is where the spine is a better normal.  Because of Chiropractic adjustments and posture/balance exercises, Efrain pain had mostly resolved and his quality of life had dramatically improved.

Overall, Efrain’s physical improvement (lack of pain, better balance) is due to the x-ray improvement through adjustments and exercises.  Knowing what is inside the body (x-ray analysis) is sometimes more important that treating the symptoms only (pain with medication).

Everyone is at a unique state of health.

Efrain’s Back Spinal Disc Recovery

Efrain had a life-changing event occur 5 years ago when he fell from a cliff and shattered his ankle.  The surgeons miraculously avoid removing the ankle and foot.  However, the doctors fused his ankle to Efrain’s leg. This was less than two evils, but left Efrain needing to learn how to function without ankle movement.

Five years later, Efrain’s daily compensation left other parts of his body starting to wear and tear.  Efrain worked hard to become on the top regional employees for a bank, and working out routinely.  Efrain’s did not know about posture or balance, so his weight lifting caused a spinal disc herniation.

He came to our office with this condition that lead to an x-ray analysis, treatment, then a post x-ray.
Efrain explains his structureal and postural recovery in this testimonial.

Everyone is at a unique state of health.
