What Do Chiropractic & Real Estate Have in Common? Location
Location. Location. Location. Strategically located clinics allow Shannon to live the life she loves.
Shannon is a very busy and well-known real estate professional in the Roanoke Valley. When not working or spending time with her family she volunteers in a variety of capacities whether it is with a school organization, charitable foundations, or as a Sunday School teacher. Shannon’s story is an important one to tell because in spite of her high-demand and fast-paced lifestyle she is able to keep her health a top priority.
Shannon’s story begins many years ago, back when she was in middle school. She suffered a serious neck injury after falling down two flights of concrete stairs. At the time, she didn’t have access to chiropractic care so her neck injury was left untreated. Years later Shannon discovered the many benefits of chiropractic care and was able to get the treatment for her neck, that she so desperately needed. Shannon explained, “I truly believe, that if I had not started chiropractic care, I would not be able to move my neck.”
What initially began as treatment for a very specific injury has transformed into a means for maintaining optimal health. Shannon said, “I discovered many years ago, the many benefits of chiropractic care. My body, as a whole, functions so much better when I have consistent chiropractic adjustments.” Shannon resolved the immediate need, her neck injury, but elected to continue treatments because she knows adjustments are key to her living the life she loves. Shannon explained further:
Keeping my body in check, which I do by having chiropractic adjustments, benefits me greatly as a whole. I am a busy real estate professional, which means many hours of driving from place to place, sitting for long periods of time, and many hours of computer work, while sitting sedentary at a desk. If I were not benefiting from my chiropractic adjustments, I would not be able to continue with the long hours that my job demands.
Just like in real estate “location, location, location” is huge for chiropractic care. A large reason Shannon is able to regularly get adjustments is because there are a variety of clinic options to choose from strategically located across the Roanoke Valley and beyond. Shannon said, “With Tuck having several locations, it has helped me maintain my general well-being, my being able to stop in at any of the locations, when I am in between appointments, etc., to get my chiropractic adjustments.”
Since Shannon has visited many locations she has as a result experience treatments from a number of doctors, four to be specific. She has found the variety of doctor’s to be an asset to her health:
I absolutely love, what I would consider, one of the missions of Tuck Chiropractic Clinic, which is establishing themselves in many different communities, where their patients are able to drop into any of the many offices, and know that their needs will be taken care of, in the same form and fashion, as if they were visiting with their primary, neighborhood Tuck doctor.
Her close relationship with the Tuck team was especially helpful when she developed sciatica while moving a heavy bird bath. This condition typically presents as pain or weakness in one leg and can also manifest as a tingling sensation or a sharp radiating pain. According to her x-rays, the situation did not look good. However, with chiropractic treatments from Dr. LaBarbera she was able to avoid invasive medical procedures and medication. Not only that, Shannon’s personal diligence, keeping up with follow up exercises at home, has allowed her to live pain-free and overcome this injury.
We are inspired by Shannon’s commitment to stay on top of her health, even in the face of a fast-paced and demanding schedule. We are also thankful to be a part of Shannon’s journey to wellness. We are thankful that she trusts our doctors—across a number of clinics—to equip her to live the life she loves.
