My high school lacrosse team refers to Dr. Boisvert as the "miracle man". It seems as if everything he touches heals remarkably quickly. Dr. Boisvert has worked on me, as well as many other members of my team, to help us get back on the field after a performance-affecting injury. In the Spring of 2012, I strained the ligaments in my shoulder. I was told that this injury would keep me from playing in the remainder of our playoff games because it affected my passing and shooting. Naturally, this was the last thing I wanted to hear. Fortunately, Dr. Boisvert worked his "magic" and I was back on the field in a matter of days, not weeks. Many of my teammates share similar stories about Dr. Boisvert's miracle work as well. Because of Dr. Boisvert, my teammates and I have returned to the field much faster than previously anticipated. I cannot imagine where our team would be without the "miracle man". I highly recommend Dr. Boisvert to any athlete looking to make a quick recovery from a field injury.
My condition began about 5 years ago with painful muscle spasms and weakening in my left arm and shoulder. I could no longer enjoy tennis or swim for any length of time as it would result in excruciating pain. A cervical MRI suggested a pinched nerve as probable cause. Over the last few years I had seen various medical care specialists and found temporary relief with the use of anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy. I began seeing Dr. Boisvert about 2 months ago on the enthusiastic recommendation of a fellow tennis player. Her exact words were - "If there is anyone that can help you it is Dr. Boisvert." I love tennis and my biggest fear was not returning to the tennis court - so, I heeded her advice and made an appointment to see Dr. Boisvert. At my first examination he was candid and did not promise any miracle cure. I liked that honesty and immediately felt that I should put my skepticism aside and open my mind to chiropractic treatment. Dr. Boisvert outlined a wellness approach (or in his words "using the natural ability of the body to heal") to help restore muscle strength and optimal innervation of my left arm/shoulder. He used the Graston technique where a metal instrument was used to break scar tissue along with deep tissue massage. Within a couple weeks I began to notice and improvement and have now slowly returned to physical activity and working out 2-3 times a week. I have wholeheartedly embraced this approach to healing and have even recommended Dr. Boisvert to my minister who is suffering from lower back pain. Dr. Boisvert brings his vast knowledge and experience to addressing problems. He offers sound advice and brings a relaxed manner to his practice. If you have an ailment that has bothered you for a while do make an appointment to consult with him - he is at the top of his profession and a whole new "natural" approach to healing could open up for you.
Following my regular work out just after Labor Day, my right shoulder, which had never bothered me before, became very painful. The pain increased over the next two weeks to the point of my not being able to open a door or lift a gallon of milk. My husband urged me to go see Dr. Boisvert because of the success he had had in treating him for various sports related injuries. I was hesitant and delayed for several weeks, unconvinced that chiropractic care would be of any help. Then came the day when I could no longer lift my arm to put my car in drive. Dr. Boisvert diagnosed me with a torn rotator cuff and began treatment on that first visit. I experienced some immediate pain relief. Two months later, with visits twice weekly, I am pain free, back to my regular workout regime and on the paddle tennis courts. Had I opted for a surgical repair, I am quite sure I would not be anywhere close to where I am today. Although I was skeptical at the outset, Dr. Boisvert's treatment of my shoulder has been just short of magical and I wholly credit him for what has been an amazing recovery.
