Dr. Armstrong Has a History of Patient Satisfaction
I met Dr Armstrong in the summer of 1998 during the wild land fires in Mims and Scottsmoor Florida he set up his table donating his time and talent at BCFR Station # 22 doing adjustments for firefighters coming off the line after a hard day in the field fighting fires. I have been his patient for about 10 years. My son decide to follow his dad’s footsteps and went to fire school. In Fire school he had a drill to perform in the 5 story drill tower he had to scale the stairs in full firefighting Gear along with the air pack (45 lbs) in his haste to get a good time on his way down he missed a step and fell into the third story landing wall head first breaking his helmet and going unconscious for a few seconds. The Fire school staff had him transported by Ambulance to the hospital were he was diagnosed with a severe concussion. In the weeks after his accident he developed and issue with his left eye and was told by a eye specialist that his eye was being attacked by his body as if it was an infection. This went on for four months, traveling to eye specialist in Miami he was on steroids eye drops and other medications with minimal improvements. I suggested to my son to visit Dr Armstrong for an adjustment. Dr Armstrong found that his C-spine was not aligned properly, Dr Armstrong performed his magic and with in a week my sons symptoms cleared up this was in 2009 and he has not had an issue with this symptom since. If my son had continued with the steroidal eye drop treatment there was a possibility of him losing his vision in that eye. I’m not a Doctor but in my opinion my sons mis alignment pinched a nerve and his body reacted by attacking his eyes as if they were infected. I entrust my families care to Dr Armstrong he is very caring with his patents and will not hesitate by volunteering his time especially for emergency service workers. Thank you
