Our Peripheral Neuropathy Patient Testimonials
My name is Walt, and I’d like to tell you about my neuropathy. I literally used to lie in bed at night and cry because they [my feet] hurt so bad. I was to the point where I HAD to do something about it. Period. I had told my medical doctor that I needed to see a neurologist to get on some type of a pain killer, and I was ready to commit to taking pain killers for the rest of my life. Strangely enough, I was in the neurologist’s office sitting there waiting and I picked a newspaper up and I saw Dr. Smith’s advertisement. I got excited enough about it; I got right up out of the chair, went outside, and called Amanda at Dr. Smith’s office and she had me come in within about four days. From then on, all I can say is my prayers have been answered. The first day, I called my wife after we left here and I said, “This is going to work! I can actually feel my feet are different right now.” Within about four to five days I felt like I had new feet, and it just keeps getting better every time I come up here [to the office], and I just want to say thanks.Walt B.
Before I came in here, I was in a lot of pain with my feet. I could not sleep at night, sometimes 24 hours a day. It would not go away. Most of the time it was like walking on gravel; and that was always there for many, many years. I also had pain on the side of leg but my feet were so painful, nothing would help. Ice, heat, exercise, and medicine wouldn’t help. I got different kinds of medicine, it wouldn’t help. I also had many creams, it didn’t help. Now, I feel wonderful. I can sleep again at night. I sleep 10 hours if my daughter doesn’t wake me up, and this has changed my life. I have so much energy and I feel 95% better right now. I am so thankful and I praise the Lord for bringing me here.Ilse C.
Before I came to Dr. Smith’s center, I was having a lot of burning and hurting in my feet and it was just really, really bad and since I’ve been coming to this office I no longer have burning and tingling in my feet and I’m so thrilled that I’m better.Irma M.
I decided to come to the office because I was experiencing such distracting pains in my feet. I also was experiencing my feet feeling overheated. It was definitely affecting my life. After coming to Dr. Smith’s office and going through the therapy, I have noticed that my feet are much more comfortable. I no longer have stabbing pains that were limiting my activities and I am enjoying life a lot more.Martha M.
I went through the program here at Dr. Smith’s office. The main problem I was having was being unable to sleep at night because of pain in the legs and feet. I now don’t have any pains in the legs or feet and I can sleep at night like you wouldn’t believe.John V.
Before I came to see Dr. Smith [for Peripheral Neuropathy and Spinal Decompression treatment], I was in such bad pain I could only walk a short distance. I spent most time in the recliner, instead of sleeping in bed. The pain running down from my hip was causing me to walk with a very painful limp. My left foot flopped very bad. Sometimes the pain was in waves, but the numbness in my calves was constant. After receiving treatment, the pain is now gone. I am on my feet walking all day and can do all my work duties again.Lori B.
Before I came to Dr. Smith, I couldn’t sleep at night because the pain was so severe. Sometimes I felt I had electricity going through my feet. I also had severe cramps, especially in my big toe. Since I have received treatment, the pain has gone away. Now I can sleep through the night, thank God for that. The treatment and friendliness of Dr. Smith and his staff has helped quite a bit. As we say in France, “Merci (Thank You)” and God Bless.Marguerite B.
Before I came to see Dr. Smith, my feet were very sore, and I couldn’t walk on bare floor without shoes. My right leg was quite stiff. Since receiving treatment, my soreness is gone from my feet and the muscles in my leg are much better.Phyllis S.
Before I came to Dr. Smith, my feet hurt constantly. It felt like I was walking on ball bearings but at the same time I could step on a thorn and not feel it. After receiving treatment, I am now unrestricted in my physical activity. My foot pain has decreased from a 7 to a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. My feelings are returning, particularly with hot and cold. I recommend this therapy.
Before I came to see Dr. Smith, I had experienced a bad outcome following tarsal tunnel surgery, which caused a lot of numbness and severe nerve pain. I had been through numerous treatment plans and rehab programs to no avail and continued to have a lot of pain. My pain increased with activity and I went from being a physically active person to a sedentary one. Since I have started treatment with Dr. Terry Smith, my pain level has decreased and I am starting to have more feeling back in my foot and leg. This program finally helped me move forward. My confidence has increased as well as my quality of life. After seven years of fighting this problem, I am encouraged. I can walk more and I am riding a stationary bike now. I feel like I can be physically active without increasing my pain. I would recommend this program.

Why I started Chiropractic Care: I found out that they were a member of the Neuropathy Treatment Centers of America and figured if anyone could help me with my Peripheral Neuropathy it would be Smith Chiropractic. I have been associated with chiropractic care for 18 years and I know these doctors are very well educated on the body’s nervous system and Smith Chiropractic is no exception. I have been dealing with peripheral neuropathy for well over 4 years now. Up until now I have been managing my pain with pain medications and when I came across Smith Chiropractic and their offer, I decided enough was enough with the damaging medications I was taking. It was time to do something different.
My Chiropractic Success: In the 3 weeks I have been receiving treatment, I have noticed a considerable difference. I since have discontinued the Butran’s patch I was taking for pain and I am fully confident that I will be able to discontinue my other one. Anybody who currently manages their pain with medications knows that it is a horrible thing to be addicted to them with no apparent end to taking them in sight. I can’t tell you how relived I am I am to at least be off of one of them and so looking forward to getting off the other one. It’s sad when you realize how much they control your life not to mention the harm they do to the other parts of your body (liver, kidneys, etc).
This is self explanatory in my case, getting the body to heal itself as opposed to just taking pain medications, it’s a no brainer that I would continue care. And I have to mention that Dr. Smith and his staff are the best I have ever came across in all my years of chiropractic and physical therapy care!! So friendly, caring, knowledgeable, courteous, I could go on and on! They will be on my Christmas card list forever

My Chiropractic Success: I have worked for chiropractors in the past and if it wasn't for chiropractic care I would not be able to move, my mid and low back pain in addition to having muscle spasm that get so bad that it is hard to move, breathe, sleep, and function. After being in a road rage collision my neck and back are always tight now and my neck sometimes won't even move for the chiropractor.
Why I Have Continued Care: I could not imagine not getting an adjustment. I continue care to be healthy and to feel better. I don’t get sick as much when I get adjusted.
