Concussion Transformations: What Our Patients Say
Long Term Care from Samantha Zrobin
I first met Dr. Roger Turner when I was nine years old. I had just started grade four. In grade three I repeated the year. Even though I was held back, I still required extra assistance in school. My parents heard of the work Dr. Turner was doing through friends and went up to North Bay, where he was practicing at the time, for a consultation with me. He began his work, first taking an extensive intake with my parents. He then began the real work, realigning the bones in my skull. He believed that most of my disabilities came from my stressful birth. Although the plan he made with my parents was a tough schedule, his work paid off in the end.
At first, I went to see him three times a week – which when you live an hour each way, away from North Bay was a challenge but my parents signed up. Dr. Turner would work on my skull, my mouth and my neck/upper back. By the beginning of grade five, my teacher wanted to know what they did with me, as I was a new student! I went back time after time again, weekly then monthly, then by the time I was in high school I was going for an adjustment just before exams. A lot of what he was working on with me was my memory. Dr. Turner not only worked on my physical self, he believed in me and my abilities. He was patient and was able to communicate with me, the way that the rest of the world didn’t understand how to. I understood him and followed his direction. He knew that when I memorized things I looked up into the right-hand corner of the room. He taught me strategies to revolve around this.
I went to college then university five to six hours away from North Bay, however, I made the commitment to come back to him to get the well needed tune up before my finals. We lost touch through out the years, as I went traveling and creating my own life for myself.
However, in 2016, I suffered a brain injury from a boating accident. By the time I found him, in 2017, he was working in Barrie. I was suffering from post-concussion syndrome as well as continual whip lash. I contacted Sharon, his wife, and she remembered me. She made me an appointment. From the moment I stepped into his office, he continued to work his magical hands on me. I was walking with a walker, could not read or write. I was also having trouble with my memory, daily living skills and communicating with others. By this time, he had perfected his practice and now recommended patients come in multiple times a day. He went to work, realigning my skull again, and worked repeatedly on my neck and back as well as my head. Although, I felt ill after the manipulations, I could feel them working. I continue going to him for repeated appointments to continue to maintain progress. I am now walking short distances independently again and am able to manage my day to day life, independently. I thank Dr. Turner for believing in me and assisting me to get back to where I used to be!
After suffering uncontrollable, inconsolable constant crying for three years, this patient stopped crying just after 1 minute receiving C.A.T.S. The second photo was taken just 1 minute after the adjustment.
I could talk for the first time and answer the phone after my first cranial adjustment.
I was hit by a MAC truck, could not stand straight, talk so anyone understood me or raise my arm above my head. With C.A.T.S. I stand straight, can raise my arm and everyone understands me.
My son Austin has autism. Over the years we have tried everything to help him, but it seemed that the older he got, the more we lost him. He has always been inattentive to those things that do not interest him. He has always had slow speech and he lacked social skills and friends. We have been working on all those areas with some success, but last summer was different. He was the worst he has ever been. The school was considering a behaviour class instead of his partially integrated placement. As he approached adolescence, our child with the gentle nature was changing into a stranger we could hardly recognize. There were days on end without a smile. His eyes were dull; he had become sullen, angry and aggressive. What you have done for our son and for our family is beyond measure…
I can now talk in sentences.
His head was misaligned from vacuum extraction. He did not do well his first nine years. His parents were told he would never amount to anything. The second picture is Kollin at 17 graduating from high school.
Dr. Mike Reid and Lise Coulture witness the son of BC chiropractor, Dr. Mandeep Bains, transition from speaking single words to 3- and 4-word sentences in two days after C.A.T.S. adjustments.
At two years old he could not walk, talk or interact in any way. After the first C.A.T.S. adjustment, he said his first word, the second adjustment 1 hour later his next two words. After the third adjustment three more words, after the fourth adjustment we went to my Aunt’s house. The next day he was sitting up and speaking in sentences. Last year in grade 1 he was getting in trouble in school for talking too much
My baby just lay there – could not walk or talk. One week later after C.A.T.S. adjustments we have a new child, walking and talking.
I don’t see double anymore.
