My Brief Story
Brief Story:  On 1/13/90 I was hit in a head-on MVA and ejected from our car 1440 ft. and impaled in a snow bank. The good news - I survived!... the bad news - I was really jacked up!!! I went into a 3 wk coma only to "wake up" to a completely broken body and a head that was not able to process, or understand ANYTHING and I still had to face multiple surgeries due to the extent of my injuries (every bone in my body was broken except for my left femur). I am thankful I "made it", but there were many days I seriously wondered why because the pain was so unbelieveably horrible. My medical doctors told my parents to get me "situated with assisted living", as I had to have 24/7 assistance b/c I was not able to do anything by myself - had to have help eating, sitting up, getting into a wheelchair, bathing, going to the bathroom.... I was a complete invalid!!! The doctors, physical therapists, massage therapists, accupuncturist... the drugs, the surgeries, the therapies.. the appointments were long, arduous and never ending. I made small progress - but nothing helped with the excruciating pain through out my entire body (felt like fire knives ripping through me 24/7), my head felt like it weighed 1000 pounds - constantly dizzy, foggy, and very irritable. My vision was seriously imparied, as was my speech. All of which was being worked on daily, and only reaching very small milestones. Finally.... by chance meeting...I was referred in to Dr. Paul D. Pierce, a Blair Upper Cervical Specific Chiropractor in Dallas (at the time - now in El Dorado Hills, CA). It has been the absolute greatest gift in my life.... I literally give thanks every day of my life to God for Dr. Pierce's specific ability in the Blair Upper Cervical technique. It literally has given me back my life. Dr. Pierce told me, to give him a minimum of 9 months and then make a decision as to continue with care or not. Within 8 months I was walking w/out help (no wheelchair/walker), I had ZERO PAIN, COULD THINK CLEARLY AGAIN, COULD SPEAK AND BE UNDERSTANDABLE, MY BREATHING WAS BETTER, ZERO DIZZINESS, ZERO EAR RINGING, EVERYTHING HAD COME BACK. I WAS TRULY AMAZED AND EXTREMELY THANKFUL. I actually owe my life to the Blair Upper Cervical Specific Care & to Dr. Paul Pierce. It is the reason I chose to become an Upper Cervical Specialist myself. The life altering experience I had, I feel at this point in time was somewhat of a blessing. There are so many people in need of help and understanding.... they just need to know that something that works is actually available...and it doesn't even hurt. I am thankful every day of my life, for my life, the experiences, and the opportunity to learn seriously 1st hand how great Upper Cervical Specific Care is. My mission now is to share my story, and spread the message about this wonderful gift we all have within our reach - the Upper Cervical Specific Care!!! It undeniably works... nothing to be afraid of... it's simple... straight up... and gets the job done. When there brain and body are not able to communicate with each other, it really is amazing how messed up our bodies become. Give yourself the opportunity to look into this wonderful specialty for yourself or loved ones. You will be so glad you did. There really is nothing like this.
