Extreme Vertigo! Dramamine every 4 hours, every day for 5 months. Never knowing when I would be back in bed not able to lift my head without puking. Never knowing when the room would just begin to spin. Worried about driving! 5 months of testing, all of it coming back "normal." Really? My life was far from normal.
That was my life before I met Dr. Chris Michlin at Back to Health Family Chiropractic in Fort Worth. He was so very honest and upfront about the vertigo. He spent two hours with me on my first visit and wrote down everything I said! He explained to me after the x-rays that he couldn't guarantee that my atlas was causing the vertigo, but that there was enough going on in there that it certainly could be! And it was!!
Dr. Michlin explained everything about the x-rays, the machinery, and the procedure. By the way, it is such an easy procedure! Not at all what I thought it might be. Absolutely no pain, can't feel a thing! He was very kind and compassionate about what I was dealing with. The office staff was every bit as kind. Nancy, Co-owner, and Tina, Patient Coordinator, are just the best!
It's a process, trying to "retrain" my atlas. It's not something that happened overnight and it won't get better overnight. Dr. Michlin says it's like training a puppy. (At least he didn't say you can't teach an old dog new tricks!) I started out getting really excited about having my atlas keep the adjustment for 10 days and then 14 days. Then I experienced 5 straight weeks of my atlas holding the adjustment and let me tell you it feels awesome! Can it get out of adjustment? Yes, it can. But I am able to recognize when it does so I go see Dr. Michlin and I feel better immediately!
I am truly blessed to have found Dr. Michlin. I thank God for him, Nancy, and Tina. I am on the road Back to Health!!

Judy has been suffering from Vertigo. Her extreme dizziness caused her to vomit several times throughout the day for weeks. Her life was stopped. After a month and a half of care, Judy was able to do what she loves: being a Show Girl in the Senior Follies! She wore high heels and walked down stairs while on stage! She still wore her cervical collar though! Judy blinged it up, and no one was the wiser!

About 25 years ago I was diagnosed with Meniere's Syndrome, a condition that causes terrible and unpredictable vertigo. I tried all kinds of treatments, several different medications, Physical Therapy, major dietary changes and ENT recommended exercise routines. All treatments were supposed to help, sadly, none of them did. Over the years I managed to maintain employment. My social life suffered terribly. After fighting the dizzy feelings through the course of my work day I was too exhausted for anything else.
After moving to Fort Worth I started on a very clean diet in yet another attempt to relieve myself of the dizziness. As things happen, my son met Dr Michlin and during one of their conversation my Meniere's symptoms came up. Dr Michlin gave my son his card with instructions to tell me that he felt he could help. As a nurse, I was a little skeptical of chiropractics being able to help me. I decided to give it a try anyway.
I began seeing Dr Michlin in January 2015. With my long history of failed treatments I tried to keep an open mind. While the results were not immediate, they have been remarkable! I have not had any dizziness now for about a year(!!) thanks to Dr Michlin, his gentle adjustments, and his professional approach. His wife and business partner Nancy and the receptionist Emily are both friendly and caring. They know how to put you at your ease. I know that if I ever have any dizziness in the future, I can get the help I need at Back To Health Family Chiropractic in Fort Worth.
