Dr. James Fedich

Years ago, something happened to me and changed my life forever.

Back in the eight grade I was taking a family trip to a wedding in beautiful upstate New York. We were driving along, my mother, father, my brother, and myself on some back roads. The weather was lovely; everyone was enjoying the drive, and then, CRASH!!!

Out of nowhere, a young woman ran a stop sign and hit our car at 45 mph. Next thing I knew, I was in a hospital on a backboard. I returned home, only to realize that I had agonizing back pain all day long. I could barely get off the floor. I couldn’t play basketball anymore, and that is all I lived for. I remember lying on the floor, in crippling pain, not being able to get up under my own power. I was forced to lie on my back for eight hours and wait for my parents to get home to help me up. The pain was debilitating, I thought that I would never play basketball again. What agonizing pain. But, there’s more…

My mother decides to take me to a new doctor. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘adjusts’ my spine. The adjustment doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good, I get relief. Oh, did I mention that this doctor is a chiropractor? In two weeks I am back playing basketball for my team again. It works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, that I eventually go to chiropractic school myself.

It’s strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their low back problems. Also they come to me with their headaches, migraines, chronic pain, neck pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, sinus trouble, backaches, ear infections, asthma, allergies, numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few
