Our Patients Speak
Even after two back surgeries I hurt so badly that I had to give up my job as a truck driver. I could not get out of a chair without putting my hands on my knees for support and when I walked I had to use the wall or a cane at times. While other doctors had given me only vague answers and told me nothing could be done, Dr. Fontenot showed me exactly what was causing my pain. When Dr. Fontenot adjusted my back, he was very gentle and there was no discomfort. After three weeks of treatment, I felt like a new man. Dr. Fontenot adds a personal touch. He is a doctor that is experienced and you can trust his suggestions.
DWIGHT R., TRUCK DRIVER
I came to the Fontenot Clinic after a motor vehicle accident. I had whiplash and wasn’t able to work or perform any of my usual activities without lots of pain and soreness in the neck, back and shoulders. I was also having headaches, heartburn, trouble sleeping and my arm would fall asleep. Dr. Fontenot set up a treatment plan for me. He explained everything to me and then performed it very professionally. I am no longer in pain, I sleep better, I’m more relaxed and I no longer have heartburn. Dr. Fontenot is well educated in his field and does a professional job.
GEORGE W., LAWN MAINTENANCE
For about a year I had back and neck pain, especially when I would get out of bed in the morning and try to straighten up. I had gone to a medical rehab clinic and got an exercise program that did not help me. Dr. Fontenot set me up on a treatment plan for my specific case and I followed through with it. I can now turn in bed and get out of bed without pain. Also my neck turns a lot easier now. I was always seen at my appointment time and the staff treated me very well.
NICHOLAS N., RETIRED ENGINEER
I experienced four days of extreme pain and was only able to lay on my back. I had experienced problems in the past with my back and neck but never before been totally incapacitated to this degree. Until this time, I had not been to a chiropractor. Dr. Fontenot thoroughly evaluated my condition and was able to bring me relief from my problems I had had for many years. I am truly amazed at how much better I now feel. I have learned a variety of simple exercises to do at home that will continue to strengthen my areas of weakness. Dr. Fontenot consistently updates me on my progress and demonstrates a general interest in his patients health and treatment.
TISH F., COUNSELOR/TEACHER
For about a year and a half I had a back problem that woke me up at 4:00 a.m. every morning. My family doctor had given me pain relievers, but the pain came back and after a while the pain relievers stopped working. Dr. Fontenot took the time to explain everything to me about my condition and the care needed to correct it. I am now back to walking again which I could not do before, I sleep much better and without any pain.
