Jacylnn's Testimony

“I have been going to Dr. Egan for about 9 months and I would definitely recommend him to anyone suffering from chronic pain or any pain at all.

I don't normally speak out or tell people about the past 6 years of my life because it was nothing but struggles, but I’m hearing more and more people experiencing similar symptoms as I did and not knowing what is wrong with them. I want to help prevent people suffering from chronic pain to the point where they feel like they are out of options, and have to live with the pain for their whole life. Because the truth is there are still options out there and Dr. Egan a Gonstead Chiropractor is one of them.

Suffering from chronic pain doesn’t just affect the person suffering it affects their loved ones, and people around them as well. Dr. Egan’s seminars, support, and methods alleviate this burden.

I heard about Dr. Egan indirectly, but I am glad I did. I was experiencing the worst chronic pain episode where I was unable to walk without falling, unable to feel my legs, unable to get up in general, missed over 2 weeks of classes, had to quit my job and miss some of my midterms. My pain got so bad that I could not even pinpoint where exactly it was coming from. I had horrible pain in my lower back that went down into my legs and stopped at the knee, headaches, infections, and more.

I was on Facebook when I came across a post my previous chiropractor shared which consisted of a video about a Gonstead chiropractor helping a young boy who was hunched back and suffering from chronic pain. In a matter of weeks, the Gonstead chiropractor from Australia helped the boy walk again, stand straight for his grad, and most importantly gave him his life back.

The line that hit close to home in that YouTube video was what the boy's father said. It broke his heart that his child did not want to live because of the pain. The truth for a long while I lost my fight, has to quit my job, I lost my purpose because I was considering deferring due to health reasons, so I too told my parents that many times because I was giving up.

I went to various doctors, chiropractors, specialists, physiotherapists, natural-paths, anything you can think of I did. I was just prescribed pain medication, Lyrica for the nerve pain, labeled, and was getting injections through X-rays into my SI joint.

I was losing hope because nothing was working. When I started to research the Gonstead chiropractor from Australia I considered going to Australia until I heard there was a Gonstead chiropractor closer to me. Dr. Egan is about 3 and a half to 4 hours away from, but I heard some of the testimonials so my parents did not hesitate and brought me anyway. I explained to Lisa Dr. Egan’s chiropractic assistant what was going on and she got me in to see him within a matter of days on a Saturday.

Lisa and all of Dr. Egan’s employees are always smiling prepared and fit us in whenever there is an emergency. On my first appointment, Dr. Egan used his nerve machine, felt to see exactly where the pain was, and X-rays to see what was going on before he did anything. Dr. Egan was the first person who did not offer me false hope. Dr. Egan informed me that he cannot guarantee that he could help, that the patient has to believe it will work, and they would have to follow what’s asked of them. Walking, eating right, doing the exercises suggested, and showing up to their appointments is important to future success.

One thing I admire about Dr. Egan is that he genuinely cares about his patients. This was extremely evident to me when I received a courtesy call on the Sunday night after my appointment. He called on his day off to make sure I was okay after the adjustment, and if I had any questions for him. Dr. Egan also offers a free seminar on the Tuesday after your appointment to explain what is wrong with you and what you have to do for the adjustments to hold.

Don’t get me wrong I do still have my rough days, and pain, but they happen a lot less often and the pain is not as bad as it once was. It has been a long road and I still have a long road ahead of me but I believe it’s worth it.

I went from losing my sense of purpose, suffering from chronic pain for 6 years, crying myself to sleep, losing my fight to move on, not being able to sleep, not being able to keep a job, barely able to walk or get out of bed, and almost deferring classes for a semester to being able to walk, sit in the car for 4 hours without the pain, being able to work again, and my grades improved drastically. Dr. Egan not only gave me a sense of hope, a sense of purpose, my fight back; he gave me my life back. Something I thought I would never have control over again. I am so thankful for Dr. Egan for giving me my life back, providing me with a sense of purpose and making me feel stronger than ever." – Jacylnn J.
