My Interest in Chiropractic Care

Straight out of high school I obtained my X-ray Tech Certification through the Air Force because it was my goal to go into a pre-med field. However, I simply was not quite sure what that consisted of. I began working for a couple of orthopedic surgeons in Selma, Ala (where I am from) as I put myself through undergrad. I then went on to work at the ER dept in Opelika, Alabama while attending Auburn University

Health Observations in Hospital

With the exception of the obvious trauma cases I encountered on a daily basis, I noticed that the sick people just kept getting sicker and the hospital/clinical environment I was working in was not conducive to what I considered “True Health care” but more of a perpetual disease care model. I decided after further research that I wanted to be involved with a discipline within health care that was more congruent with my pursuit of being an entrepreneur and a non-drug approach to health restoration. This path invariably took me to investigate the profession of Chiropractic where I discovered a path that led me to where I am today. I knew the first day of school I had chosen correctly and I have never looked back. It continues to be a great experience and I am grateful to have found my true calling in life.

My First Chiropractic Examination

Several years ago I developed a severe low back condition known as a “bulged or herniated disc.” It progressed quickly and the pain I felt at certain times was so piercing that I couldn’t tie my own tennis shoes. I feared my future career and active family life would be at risk if the disability continued. I definitely considered my options, with surgery being the only one presented by the surgeon I saw. I decided against surgery. It just didn’t make sense to me to undergo back surgery without trying other treatments first.

Chiropractic Treatments or Surgery

A friend encouraged me to try some treatments from a chiropractor. I took his advice and went for my very first chiropractic examination. The doctor examined me, took some photos, and then “adjusted” my spine. I anticipated the adjustment would be painful, but it was not. It actually felt good in that it provided some relief. I was able to bend over and utilize my back once again. This experience triggered my interest in studying learning more about how chiropractors help with so many different injuries and chronic conditions. I soon enrolled in chiropractic school. That is how it all started… It is strange how life is. It is hard to believe that my herniated disc treatment resulted in me having the opportunity to help others with back pain, neck pain, headaches, carpel tunnel syndrome, migraine headaches, chronic pain, shoulder/arm pain, whiplash from car accidents, neuropathy and numbness in limbs, athletic injuries, just to name a few.

My sciatica was bothering me so bad it was making it very difficult to live a normal life, at least to move normally without pretty bad pain. It was limiting the things I could do and even making it hard to do my job at times. After About three months of going to Action, Spine and Joint regularly (2 to 3 times weekly), the pain is now gone! The staff there is super friendly and accommodating and the Dr. Casey and Dr. Josh are amazing! I see why they were voted the Best Chiropractic office in Nashville for many years. Would highly recommend them!

I came to Action with significant disc compression between L5 & S1, with steady pain 8/10 and stabs way past 10. I went from not being able to walk the day after my injury to able to walk without significant pain in less than a week. Dr. Bearden & Dr. Joshua are both experts at their craft, they listened when I told them what was working, what wasn't, and what I could afford, and they worked with me to get me on a treatment plan that has helped me regain mobility & reduce pain in a short amount of time. The front of house staff is helpful, kind & generally lovely. If you're thinking about chiropractic care, look mo further than Action!

After being involved in an auto accident I had major pain to my lower back from a bulged disk, and other joint pains. The pain was constant and went on for months. Due to a pinched nerve and misalignment. After orthopedic appointments and MRIs my Dr. Referred me to these guys for help. I have noticed a major improvement since my first visit and feeling better and better every time I go. I have more energy, less pain, I am able to do things without the pain I was feeling before without the need for surgery! My blood psi is back to normal, and much more! I would highly recommend Action Spine and Joint to anyone needing to alleviate pain in their body! The physical therapy and chiropractic care is on point! And everyone is very friendly and professional.

I had a very positive experience with the staff and provider each time I have a session. I have pain and spinal issues and treatment they are providing puts me on a path for healing. Dr. Casey and Dr. Joshs’ knowledge reflects in my care. They are empathetic and respectful to my concerns and needs for my back pain. So glad I found them.

Love Dr. Josh and Dr. Casey. When I have needed adjustment, they have always straightened me out! I especially appreciate their approach to post-injury care. They carefully assess to rule out fractures or other serious complications, including using X ray on site if needed, before performing a chiropractic adjustment. They also have excellent therapists on staff and a diverse array of equipment that can help correct posture, relieve inflammation, treat pain, and promote healing. My family and I have trusted them for years.
