Since I was 13 years old I had severe back pains. I was not able to get out of bed as a child… I saw many back specialists and no one could figure out what was wrong with me. I am now 18 years old and am preparing to go to the University of Hawaii to play Division 1 beach volleyball. In September I went to another orthopedic surgeon because I was preparing to have back fusion surgery in my L5 S1 level. The physicians assistant found that I had a torn labrum in my right hip. It was then decided that I needed to get labrum surgery in my right hip which decreased my pain level greatly. Even though I had this surgery I still have my herniated disc in the low level of the right side of my back. I saw Dr. Slovin and she instantly recognized what was wrong and gave me a slight adjustment that gave me relief that second. I am now receiving her help with someone in the area that I am now living in. I trust Dr. Slovin so much and I am so grateful for the relief she has given me and the help she is continuing to give me even though I am now not in the same area as her. Thank you so very much!!!! I never thought I would find somebody that can guide me in the correct direction. Now I feel as if I am going to be prepared to play in college. The best chiropractic doctor I have seen and would recommend to anybody that asks me.
