Low Back Pain: I can run again!

Low Back Pain: I can run again!

I am a 56 year old woman and I am preparing to run the hot chocolate run 5 K in Philadelphia, on April 1st, for the third time. On the morning of February 24th I ran a really good 1.5 mile run and I felt great!

Then a little later, while getting ready for work and making the bed, I felt a snapping sensation in my low back. I was instantly in pain and my muscles went into spasm. I lowered myself to the floor, as I could not bear my own weight. Fortunately, I could reach my cell phone to call my husband and then Dr Horning.

My husband all but carried me to the car and then into Dr Horning s office. The adjustment was difficult because I could not tolerate many of the positions required and the pain was so severe that I could not tolerate being touched.  However, Dr Horning’s gentle manor and numerous techniques brought results. The following day I was able to walk into the office, very slowly, but on my own.

I saw Dr Horning 7 times in 11 days. With every treatment I had a decrease in pain and an increase in strength and ability. As soon as I was able to walk on my treadmill, the first time for only 5 minutes, I worked my way back to running. On Monday March 6th, ten days after the original injury, I ran 1.5 miles, pain free, and only 9 seconds slower than the day of my injury.

With Dr Horning help and a lot of determination I am back on track to run the hot chocolate run! I believe this is amazing and a true testament to the help available through Dr Horning and his practice.

Thank you Dr Horning!
