Before I was referred to Dr. Ablett, I was seen for a year by a Pain Dr. for Chronic Migraines, Chronic Rib pain and Chronic Back pain. The Pain Dr. had helped in reducing the migraines temporarily, but they were still happening multiple times each month. The epidural for my back pain did nothing. I was also seeing a podiatrist Dr. for bi-lateral calcified Achilles tendonitis, for which they placed me in braces and provided me exercises. The braces the podiatrist Dr. did not help, and the exercises caused greater pain. Also, I hate taking meds, plus I am allergic to, or quickly become allergic to the majority of the so called ‘helpful’ meds.
When I started working with Dr. Ablett, he carefully listened to my woes around my chronic issues which I have been having most of my life and how little to nothing seemed to help. He worked on not just my spine, but my ribs and facia. I have been to about 35-40 Chiropractors during my over 60 years on this planet. Dr. Ablett is the first Chiropractor I’ve worked with who actually knows how to work with ribs and facia.
After working with Dr. Ablett for several months, with a lot of myofascial work head to toe, I can attest that my Chronic Migraines, Rib pain and Back pain are no longer Chronic. I have only had 1 Migraine in the last 3 months, and, as of this posting, that was 4 weeks ago. I am walking with a normal gate again and rarely have foot pain or back pain. My ribs are rarely giving me issues. He has also taught me how to feel for the facia which is agitated and how to do the myofascial work on it to help relieve my pain issues and muscle cramping.
I truly enjoy working with Dr. Ablett and his office manager Natalie is a sweetheart. They are both incredible people IMHO.
