Main Condition:  Back pain, knee pain, headaches
My Brief Story
Brief Story:  "For many years I learned to live with the reality of almost constant pain. Backaches and knee joint pain were an unwelcome part of my daily activities. Headaches were my constant companion. I was told by doctors that these pains were symptoms of a condition that had attacked my knees, that they diagnosed as osteoarthritis. But even after replacement surgery was performed on my right knee and the accompanying surgical complications that followed, (which is a different story in itself), pain in my knees continued as a constant struggle.

But in spite of it all, I never allowed myself to accept pain to be a permanent part of my life, because I know in my heart that God will heal me and remove the pain from me. I prayed constantly and fervently for healing of my body. I am of the firm belief that God oftentimes tests not only our faith and trust in Him, but also our persistence and perseverance in our prayers. I also believe that He answers our prayers in His own time. To make a long story short I will only say that a broadcast on a Christian radio station that my husband was listening to has led me here in this very place (Brooks Spinal Care pc) and circumstance through Louella Harris…I met the wonderful Dr. Robert Brooks. People often say that God works in mysterious ways and it couldn’t have been more evident in my case. I have no doubt in my mind the meeting Dr. Brooks is not just a coincidence. Sometimes, God’ healing takes place instantaneously and in a supernatural manner and sometimes He uses the skill and talent of gifted medical professionals to effect the healing process.

Through Dr. Brooks’ unique method of spinal adjustment that he personally performed on me, I am now free of headaches, my backache is gone and my knees are free of pain, except for occasional aches, which I consider just a minor discomfort.

Thank you Dr. Brooks. I am most grateful to you not only for your skill, but also for your genuine concern and caring attitude for your patients. And I thank your wonderful staff; you all are a very professional group who is truly concerned for the care and welfare of your patients.”
