Treatment

Over the past several years I have had neck pain on a regular basis, I ignored it assuming it was a muscle. Recently I had so much pain I was unable to really even move with out shooting pain through my entire body. After a visit to the ER and several imaging tests it was confirmed that in fact it is not a muscle issue. There are several other things going on in my neck/spine causing this pain. This isn’t good news but it has started me a new health journey that I am happy to share with you.

I wanted an option that was not surgery or taking medication to correct the pain problems I was having. I did a lot of research and I was given a recommendation to Hill Country Physical Medicine in Boerne. They offer a comprehensive approach to the body and healing allowing for a customized treatment plan to each person who comes in.

The first visit was a full exam with a several different medical professionals. They then met as a team and reviewed each persons findings, looked through images taken there and previously done. As a group they came up with a plan that they felt would give me the best results. The next visit they go over everything with you and encourage you to bring your spouse so that everyone is aware and on the same page to move forward.

Each member of the team is welcoming and friendly. I feel so comfortable walking in the door each day knowing that I am going to get the best care. Each visit I get even more information or learn something new. I love this! I also feel very comfortable knowing I am getting the best care by the best providers in the area.

This group offers so much more than just want I am experiencing with them. If you are looking for a Physical Medicine option I recommend them for a visit!

HC Nutrition

I was so excited to go to HC Nutrition and learn what it was all about. I started seeing their Grand Re-Opening event on Facebook and that really peaked my interest. I was able to meet with the Jennifer, owner, and she had so much information to share. I was so excited to hear she is a RN and really able to speak to the different medical aspects of the benefits she has to offer. I had no idea how much was available at HC Nutrition.

Cryotherapy is something I had been wanting to try since I saw in on the Real Housewives, yes you read that right, I am obsessed with reality TV. I have looked into it further and there are just so many benefits. I loved it and can’t wait to do it again. I could feel the benefits in my muscles the rest of the day and into the next. When I told people I did it their first statement was always I don’t like the cold, well this isn’t your normal cold feeling. It is really un-explainable and the time flies. The employees are there to talk to you and the 3 minutes seemed like nothing.
