Skydiving injury


Posted 2007-11-11

I suffered a tailbone injury from skydiving. The instructor put the harness on me too tight and when the chute opened, Wham! My tailbone was wrenched. 8 months later, the pain seemed to be getting worse and I could barely work at my computer for more than an hour at a time. I had tried acupuncture, several pillows, icing, stretching and 3 chiropractors (including Dr. Khalsa from this list) who all claimed to have the answer and nothing was working.

Then, I found Dr. Nunez in Glendale, California (see Doctors and specialists in the USA, California). He works without cracking, popping or twisting and has brought me back to health and given me my life back. I had to take a flight from Los Angeles to England one month from when I started seeing him and I didn't think it would be possible to do without intense pain. He made it possible! This man is a lifesaver.
