Hi, my name is Roy Alderman Jr. I was born in 1963 and have lived in Greensboro my entire life. I began competitive weightlifting at age 13 and for a decade I was a competitive powerlifter. I suffered several pulled muscles and other injuries during this time. In 1986, I began 20 year pursuit in Martial Arts. It yielded me several broken bones, including a broken face. I eventually opened my own Dojo in McLeansville and during my stint as a Sensei, I had a spell of nonstop, debilitating headaches. Every doctor I saw gave me a different diagnosis. Frustrated with lack of help and after months of agony, I pursued homeopathic remedies and eventually cured myself.
Soon after, I began having back and groin pain. I had to close my Dojo. After 10 years of increasingly intense pain I procured decent insurance and almost immediately got a hip replacement. The PA said it was the worst looking hip she had ever seen. I got a job that paid well for the next 7 years, but it was a soul-sucking job that I utterly despised. I dreaded going to work every day and at days end, I came home feeling crushed and empty, 6 years into that job, my Dad killed himself. I dealt with crushing depression for a long time after that. When that job ended, I decided to learn a vocation that fulfilled me and helped others.
Why does any of this matter? Well, I can tell you There is a reason they call it "practicing" medicine, I didn't like getting "treated" by Doctors that could care less who I was, what I had been through and what the root of my problems were. Like most people, the time I spent making appointments and sitting and waiting for doctors was many times over the amount of time they spent with me to determine my (mis)diagnosis.
I spend time talking to my clients to glean information on how best to treat them and get rid of their pain. Better information equals better results. People aren't hamburgers and shouldn't be placed on a conveyor belt to get them in and out as fast as possible with cookie cutter results.
