How we have helped some of our patients
Increased mobility & energy
I now have increased mobility & energy. I have been using my Denneroll and now have better neck motion and little pain! Also Chiropractic care has improved my sinuses! -
Having no jaw pain or headaches increases the quality of my day to day activities
I tried chiropractic care because of frequent low back pain, headaches and jaw pain. I had previously tried lots of Advil, wisdom teeth removal and alternating ice and heat without much relief. Since beginning chiropractic care I have much less back pain and my jaw pain and headaches are mostly gone. Having no jaw pain or headaches increases the quality of of my day to day activities and makes going to school and work much easier.
Chiropractic care has been life changing!
I had tried everything I could think of to get rid of excruciating headaches: pain killers, migraine med's, physical therapy and my instinct was that chiropractic care could really help, but was advised by my physician not to seek chiropractic care. (Now I wish I would have years ago!) Chiropractic care has been life changing! I noticed a difference in the way I felt almost immediately. I have not had a severe headache since starting chiropractic care and the couple of headaches I have had have been so much more mild and disappear after I receive an adjustment. I sleep better, too. I can't say enough good things about how much Dr. Chris has helped me!
