In 2005, after too much heavy yard work and long keyboard sessions at work, I developed what my doctor thought was tendonitis (golfer’s elbow). Since then, I went to five orthopedic surgeons, five physical therapists, two acupuncturists and two massage therapists and spent a lot of money looking for some answers. I found little golfers elbow relief and was about to give up hope of ever being able to perform simple tasks around the house and at work without pain.
Then a friend made a casual suggestion about trying her sports chiropractor, Dr. Nik Delfavero. After one hour with Dr. DelFavero, I had a new diagnosis of “thoracic outlet syndrome.” After 10 treatments and a new exercise program, my pain was greatly reduced and I can work around the yard and on the job with much less discomfort. With more exercise, I look forward to a return to 100 percent. I’ll never take my health for granted again, and I’ll always be grateful to Dr. DelFavero.
