Radiating Hip & Leg Pain

“I had pain in my hips and knees when lying down sleeping, or sitting for any length of time since approximately 1999 or 2000 but the pain was sporadic and I elected to deal with it with over the counter drugs such as Tylenol, etc.

In 2006 the pain in my hips and or knees was becoming more frequent and would wake me up from a sound sleep. I finally went to an orthopedic doctor who prescribed an MRI, which showed my hips and knees were okay but problems with my back. He suggested an epidural shot in my lower back. I received a series of four epidural shots beginning in January of 2007 and the last on June 1st of 2009. Realizing the epidural shots were becoming less effective and wanting to avoid a back operation I considered going to a chiropractor.

My first visit with Dr. Katie was in July of 2009. I was given a thorough examination at that time including x-rays which showed the problems with my back and neck. To my surprise the x-ray also showed a large kidney stone in my left kidney which I was completely unaware of.

I began meeting twice a week with Dr. Katie and by the end of August I was sleeping all night without waking up from pain in my hips, legs, or knees. The pain I suffered was not severe but it did prevent me from getting a night’s sleep or sitting for any length of time. I am grateful for what she has done for me. Getting a good night’s sleep is priceless.”   -John
