from Kristin (January 2007)
a patient from Europe who would like to
take the opportunity to thank Dr. Elster
for her outstanding chiropractic care during
the last 7 months. I sustained a neck injury
after a skiing accident 3 years ago, and
experienced debilitating symptoms like chronic
fatigue, excessive need for sleep, excruciating
headaches, dizziness, nausea, tinnitus,
muscular tensions, noise and light sensitivity.
I had been to several neurologists, doctors
and physiotherapists, all to no avail. The
MRIs were negative and my doctors told me
that nothing was really wrong with me, but
I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome.
The symptoms prevented me from being able
to work at all and I had to rely on welfare
benefits, being awake only a few painful
hours every day.
found Dr. Elsteršs website accidentally
on the internet and emailed her immediately
after reading about her upper cervical care.
Since I'm from Norway, Europe, it was a
big decision for me to take the chance and
go to Boulder to see Dr. Elster. I had to
borrow money to be able to go, and at the
time I went to the States my symptoms had
worsened, so the long journey was very hard
on me. Dr. Elster was able to pinpoint the
injury no other doctor had found and she
started her care immediately after the initial
assessment. I had cleared 4 months to stay
in Boulder but after only 6-7 weeks I was
getting so much better (and restless) that
I began to travel the world again, doing
the things I love to do, photography and
scuba diving. I've been able to travel between
Boulder and foreign countries, staying in
Boulder regularly for treatments and check-ups
in between my travels. I will soon start
working again as a clinical psychologist
only 7 months after the treatment started.
ashamed to admit I was rather sceptical
that Dr. Elster would be able to cure me,
since I had so many debilitating symptoms
and I'd been sick for so long. I am extremely
happy I took the chance and went to the
States to see Dr. Elster. My recovery feels
like a miracle. If you are experiencing
symptoms related to an upper neck injury,
take the chance and go to see her. If she's
able to help you, it'll be well worth the
cost and effort.
Elster is one of the most professional and
efficient practitioners I've ever met and
I am forever grateful for her care."
