Severe back pain with depression and stress. I've been suffering from severe back pain for about 4 years now and depression and stress since I was a child. I am now 31. I suffer from 2 bulging discs, scoliosis, I've broken my neck and have numerous other health problems. My back pain was so bad I couldn't even play with my kids which was the one thing in my life that I valued most. I am on lots of pain medications and depression medications ...and I thought this was the way the rest of my life was going to be. Then I went to Dr. Chris Frykman at Uptown Minneapolis Chiropractic and Kinesiology and my life has changed. After just the first visit I felt so relaxed which I haven't felt in years. He has given me a new lease on life. He has so much passion about what he does. I would definately recommend Dr. Chris Frykman to anyone who experiences back pain.
I first came to see Dr. Chris at Transforming Chiropractic due to a condition with my arm in which I was unable to sleep through the night without waking up in excruciating pain. This condition had come on gradually, seemingly out of nowhere, and I could not figure out what was going on or who to go to for help. I had to take pain relievers so that I could sleep and I really did not want to have to resort to that.
After a free phone consult with Dr. Chris, I decided to come in and start treatment because of the caring that he conveyed. I felt that he was a person who truly wants to help people.
Over the course of my care, we decided to run a functional medicine assessment to learn more about the chemical side of my cells and he put me on a detoxification and nutritional protocol. We ran stress response evaluations in which he was able to tell me about how my body responds to the stress of everyday living. I was amazed at how accurately he was able to describe me based off of that.
Recently, we were discussing my health goals and he mentioned my shoulder. I suddenly realized that I had totally forgotten about the pain! I had not taken pain meds in weeks. I sleep well through the night and don’t wake in agony. My range of motion is not 100% yet, but has DRAMATICALLY improved from when I walked into Transforming Chiropractic a few short months ago.
Dr. Chris is very thorough, and I appreciate his holistic approach to my health. I have recommended him to my loved ones. Take him up on his offer of a free phone consult, or attend his free health talk. You’ll be glad you did!
