Dr. Shah sharing stories with a young patient at the Peruvian clinic.
While in my sophomore year at the University of Illinois Chicago, I had been sleeping on a futon (as many college students do) and created chronic low back pain for myself. So, it got to the point where I couldn’t tolerate it anymore and I ended up going to my family doctor. I was prescribed an NSAID (anti-inflammatory drug), I took a dose that night because I had an exam the next morning and wanted to get some rest. Well, that didn’t happen. Instead I spent the whole night awake with writhing abdominal pain and nausea. So, there I was the night before my midterm with abdominal pain and still experiencing the back pain! I ended up chucking the whole bottle and just living with the low back pain. It wasn’t until 2 years later, when I started working for a chiropractor and getting regular adjustments, that my back pain went away. I slept so well after my first adjustment, I was late to work the next morning! Good thing it was my boss’ fault! So began my journey with chiropractic.
