Patient Story: Ruben Vargas

July 18, 2018

The patients who have come through the Peak Chiropractic doors all have unique stories to tell about the pain they were experiencing and how they feel now that they are receiving treatment, and we’re excited to be able to tell those stories. Whether seeking out Peak due to a recent injury or a long-standing ailment, our goal is to see our patients leading full, pain-free lives upon recieving chiropractic treatment. 

When we reached out to a few former patients about telling their stories, Ruben Vargas couldn’t wait to tell his. Ruben is a 47-year-old married father of two who works in a laboratory where he is usually seated in front of a computer. Slowly over the years, he developed lower back pain that seemed to grow over time. He tried various stretches, exercises, and medications to ease the pain but none of them appeared to be a permanent solution, and the pain continued to inhibit his ability to live his life.

I had just given up. I started to accept that this is just how I’d feel for the rest of my life.
— Ruben Vargas

Ruben turned to the advice of his family, and his sister recommended the team at Peak. She had been a patient herself and urged him to book an appointment, which he ultimately did. Like many people who have never been to a chiropractor before, Ruben described feeling both apprehensive and skeptical. He said that he’d lived with the back pain for so long that he didn’t imagine that anyone could fix it. 

At his consultation, Ruben said he was immediately put at ease by our office staff. After meeting with Dr. Marse, he was placed on a 6-8 week plan that involved adjustments and onsite exercise three days a week as well as at-home exercise. Ruben told us that his pain slowly subsided over that period, and when asked how he’s felt since he said:

My wife will be the first you tell you, I’m a completely different person since my treatment at Peak. I can’t tell you what Dr. Marse & his team mean to me. They gave me a new lease on life.

Over his time as a patient with us, Ruben said that his apprehension and skepticism turned into total faith in Peak. His transformation has gone beyond being free from back pain, as he has also seen an impact on his ability to be active in his kids' lives. Where he once had to call it quits on playtime before his kids were ready, he now says they're the ones trying to keep up with him. 

We asked Ruben why he was so excited to tell his story first, and he said that he wanted to be able to tell other people who are skeptical about the results of chiropractic care to give it a shot sooner rather than later. He said that he’s been able to do more and experience more in life now that Peak has alleviated his pain. 

If the pain Ruben was experiencing sounds similar to the chronic pain you’re dealing with, don’t hesitate to book your consultation with Peak Chiropractic. We’re currently offering a new patient special and would love to get you on the road to recovery!
