Charleston Pain Relief Center Complaint - Injured by Chiropractor

Review by Injured by chiropractor on 2010-05-31

I went to Charleston Pain Relief Center because I was told my back spine was starting to curve and may present problems later in life. I wasn't really having any back shoulder or neck pain but decided 2010 was the year I get myself in the most maximum health. I was placed in this little room, manipulated and talked into signing up for a 3 month 3 x week plans. For 1 month, I was treated very nicely with compassion and respect. During that month I told Dr. Mathew Jenkins that I was expecting a child, he said he could continue to treat me safely. My treatments consisted of manual back manipulations with me laying face down on a table, light exercises and tens 3000 muscle stimulator. One dreadful evening, Dr. Jenkins decided to without consulting with me, manipulate me by doing doing a STANDING UP MANUAL MANIPLUATION on my neck. I SCREAMED out in pain as he snapped my neck. I asked him why did he do that and expressed how badly he hurt me. He told me I would feel better in couple days. Well, it has been almost 3 months now and I have been in SEVER CHRONIC PAIN since that day. Every day, morning noon and night I suffer in sever neck pain. Although, he has apologized for hurting me, he has refused to give me my personal records chart. Stating by law he has up to 30 days to provide me with my chart. It has been over 30 days since my request. I went to office to ask for my records and was treated horribly by both Dr. Jenkins and his receptionist Nancy. They called the police to have me removed all because I was insisting on getting my records. I am 4 months pregnant and have been told there is nothing I can do but physical therapy and take Tylenol for the pain due to the pregnancy and would have to suffer in pain until I deliver my baby. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE BEWARE THIS MAN IS VERY DANGEROUS.

What does your regular doctor recommend that you do?

If this is the case, why haven't you contacted a personal injury lawyer?
