Retired, Denis is an active volunteer in his community. He has time to offer and talents that he can bring to his parish. And he does it with a good heart.
One day, Denis felt “his nerves” get stuck in his back, radiating to his left leg. However, he did not fall and does not remember having made a wrong move. It happened like that, like a veiled sky. Gradually, he found it difficult to move. His daily life has been affected. He struggled to bring his joyful participation within his community.
Worried, he consulted health care. He received cortisone injections, consumed the painkiller tablets, but, to Denis' great disappointment, nothing relieved him. A spine operation was offered to him, but he did not want to go through it!
He was referred to the Clinique Chiropratique Bromont / Solutions discales, by another chiropractor, for the specific neuro-vertebral decompression care it offered. Denis had a lot of osteoarthritis in the lumbar region, which caused him problems with the sciatic nerves. At his first consultation, he was informed of his state of health and the treatment offered to him. After only two months, he could walk without the aid of a cane or crutches. He who saw himself in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, suffering from his physical pain, but also from that of no longer being able to walk, nor to contribute to his dear community. He was far from this scenario!
Because soon, he was able to resume his regular activities. It was with joy in his heart that he returned to offering his support to his parish. Yes, good, without exaggerating on heavy work, of course! (A nod to Denis from Véronique: or playing the contortionist by wanting to move the computer tower from under a desk, for example!) Now he can imagine his retirement in good shape.
When Denis meets people who suffer from pain, he does not hesitate to tell them his story. “Yes, the investment seems expensive at first glance, but health is priceless. At Clinique Chiropratique Bromont / Solutions Discales, Dr. Brunel, chiropractor, quickly put me at ease by confirming that he could do something to relieve my pain and give me back a much more normal quality of life. And he was right! I tell you, give it a try, you won't regret it! His words say the same thing as the light shining all over his face.

Let time do its work. When this sentence is not taken into consideration, the work can be far from being a masterpiece. This was the case of Mireille. One thing leading to another, her back pain changed: she had difficulty bending over, getting up, staying seated in the car. She could no longer find positions where she felt comfortable. One day, she was unable to put on her stockings and shoes. Getting out of the car alone, she couldn't even think about it! Then, it was to press the foot on the pedals of the automobile which was impossible. The simple and usual movements have become inaccessible for Mireille. Each gesture carried its shadow of pain. From now on, her spouse had to assist her and take care of the little essential rituals of everyday life.
After examinations, Mireille learns that all this stems from a herniated disc and severe degenerative disc disease.
Mireille consulted various chiropractors as well as physiotherapists. Nothing worked for her. She tried medication but, unfortunately, it did not correct her situation. The pain, as far as she was concerned, continued its work: it continued to increase gradually. After all these trials, Mireille came to Clinique Chiropratique Bromont / Solutions Discales discouraged and anxious. The fear of not being able to walk grew in her.
At the start of the treatments, Mireille was still feeling her pain. Then it shifted, and she felt gradual relief and improvement. She came to the conclusion that this whole path was for the best. This positive thought accompanied and encouraged her in her treatment.
The sun has started to shine again in Mireille's daily life. She went from having difficulty getting out of her car, to gardening; not being able to put on your socks, to ride a bike; not being able to press the accelerator, to walk regularly. She is impressed by all these positive changes in her mobility and quality of life. She was convinced that at this rate, if she did not find solutions, she would no longer be able to work, to function. It is certain that she would have sunk into depression, she says.
Following her experience, Mireille feels the importance of maintaining her spine with maintenance care. Because even if the pain is much less, she feels that there could still be a slight fragility. It is that osteoarthritis, lodged in his column, cannot be cured. On the other hand, the damage can be slowed down. And Mireille doesn't want to go back where she went!
Mireille is very happy to have invested in her health. His only regret is having waited until he was in severe pain before consulting.
On an April morning in 2020, Myriane wakes up with a sharp pain in her right arm. She notices that she doesn't have the same strength as before and that her hand is numb. However, she was not injured. We are at the start of a pandemic. Myriane, editor, is now working from home. Could it be due to poor posture at his improvised desk? Her pain prevents her from working and also forces her to drop her family activities and hobbies, such as deck hockey. After examinations, she learns that all this stems from degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis. Now that the diagnosis is made, what to do to solve the problem? She consults various health professionals, but unfortunately, she notices only a small improvement. Myriane is discouraged and worried. She finds it sad to suffer like this at 41 years old. In March 2021, she consulted Clinique Chiropratique Bromont/Solutions Discales. After having suffered several failures with other caregivers, she is skeptical. However, she nurtures a spark of hope, because her sister has greatly improved her condition thanks to the chiropractic treatments received.
From the first appointments, she notices a decrease in pain as well as more flexibility in her movements in the neck. After a first month of follow-up, Myriane feels confident, in addition to being relieved! Finally, she found something that works for her.
A year later, Myriane is aware of the slow but steady improvement that is taking place. She is returning to a much-desired normality. A few torticollis punctuated his journey, but these were less and less severe and more and more distant from each other.
Before returning to full-time work, she had regained 95% of her initial well-being. Today, she is happy to be able to play with her children again, lifting heavy loads, running, biking, hiking in the mountains and skiing, all without feeling pain. She feared harboring a fear of deck hockey, but she rediscovered the pleasure of playing with confidence. Now, Myriane feels good in all her activities. “Honestly, I find it hard to believe that I have regained the same quality of life as before and I am very grateful for that! My treatments at Clinique Chiropratique Bromont are an investment that I will never regret having made,” she tells us, beaming.
Bad luck, they say. With hindsight, Pierre clearly sees how the development of the symptoms that overwhelm him - barred back, back pain, pinched sciatic nerve - had as their starting point a bad fall 20 years ago.
Pierre consulted a chiropractor for the first time to see if this problem could be solved. Referred by a friend, he went to Clinique Chiropratique Bromont / Solutions Discales. He felt confident from the first meeting: the explanations concerning the neuro-vertebral decompression care that was recommended to him brought him an understanding of the importance of these types of treatments for his current condition. And he was not mistaken. The pain felt in the past is history: the initial pain has never returned. In addition, he no longer fears that his back will block at all times. He can now move and enjoy life with confidence. Pierre has regained freedom of action in his everyday life.
He sees it well, many people over fifty are plagued with back pain. Taking care of your back is priceless, it brings a lot of freedom in everyday life, he says. For his part, he considers himself happy with his decision to have invested in the good health of his back.

During a game of volleyball, a pain in Mylène's lower back appeared. A burning sensation, especially in the right side, followed her everywhere. Mylène managed to control her illness at times, but the persistent symptoms always ended up coming back. This situation constrained her to her work: wearing her police equipment became difficult. Her sports activities were also affected, and this discouraged her greatly.
Mylène first consulted other health professionals before coming to Solutions Discales / Clinique Chiropratique Bromont.

Raymond consulted Solutions Discales / Clinique Chiropratique Bromont for pain in his shoulder, back, and right leg, from the buttocks to the calf. "At my age, it's normal to be worn out."

Get back to a normal life. This is what Pierre dreamed of when he showed up at Solutions Discales / Clinique Chiropratique Bromont. His expectations were high. Take away his pain. He was afraid it wouldn't work. May he grapple with them all his life. It was because Pierre had so much back pain that he could no longer sleep in his bed. The quality of his sleep was deteriorating. It influenced his mood. Gradually, he began to be restricted in his movements. This can also affect mood.
Initially, Pierre consulted for pain in his left arm. He did not maintain care. Years later, her back pain occurred. Which led him to consult again. Cervical arthritis was diagnosed. Pierre undertook new treatments.

Pierre sees a 90% to 95% improvement in his condition. He has regained his mobility and a quality of life that satisfies him. He is happy to be able to sleep, and this, in his bed!

Because osteoarthritis can be treated, but not cured. By maintaining a regularity in the treatments, we manage to slow down, or even stop its progression. As Pierre says: “We must believe in it and persevere. Despite the costs, it really changes! »
