Patient Stories

Childhood Constipation

Childhood Constipation

Our daughter was born a healthy baby girl on June 24, 2003. However when she was approximately 6 months old she began to suffer from severe constipation. As parents we tried everything we were told to aid in regularity. We increased her fibre intake as well as her water intake, we tried movement exercises, and even suppositories, but nothing changed. It was extremely painful for her and painful for us to watch. At the same time, she was struggling to roll over and stand straight, and suffered from re-occurring ear infections. After a month of trying everything, we were convinced that there was nothing that could be done.

Migraines

Migraines

I began to suffer from migraines when I was a full-time university student 4 years ago. I had always had sinus problems and been sensitive to weather changes (the “human barometer” was my nickname), but never had a problem with migraines before then. When the migraines began, I was in the habit of carrying about 30 lbs of books with me wherever I’d go and I now realize that I used to study with my head cocked to one side.

In the course of those consultations it was decided that neurosurgery was not the appropriate treatment for me at that time.

Chronic Neck Pain

Chronic Pain, TMD, Dyslexia

I have experienced many different types of physical therapies over the past twenty years in an attempt to find the source of and relieve my chronic neck pain. My problems seemed to have begun after the birth of my daughter, who is over twenty years old now. The first symptom I noticed was that my jaw was clenching and painful. My journey to a pain free, fully functioning body began with being treated for TMJ Syndrome (Temporal Mandibular Joint). All that baby-carrying and less sleep then began to manifest in my left shoulder and there the pain resided and worsened.

Scoliosis and Car Accident

Scoliosis & Whiplash

I decided to go to Dr. Scholten during the time my daughter was seeing him for a whiplash injury. My daughter has been suffering from a car accident three and a half years ago and has had massage, extensive physiotherapy and intra muscular stimulation (in attempts to relieve her pain). She now has seen progress. She is a high level synchronized swimmer and this has made a big difference in her attitude, performance and how she is feeling.
