How we have helped some of our patients


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.

I no longer have a tight neck or upper back.

I’ve been seeing Chiropractors for years, but never on a routine basis. I believe in alternative medicine and a co-worker suggested I go to THC.

I had neck pain, tight upper back & shoulders, request colds and fatigue. The other Chiropractors I visited on gave me temporary results. With THC, you get down to the root of the issues – the Spine, which controls the entire body.

I was diagnosed as having gall stones and with treatment and vitamins/supplements, I have not had issues in over a month. I really DO need by gallbladder when a conventional doctor said I didn’t.

I no longer have a tight neck or upper back. I feel more realized without the constant pain. I also have better posture and have a better range of motion turning my head. I am more aware of how I am sitting, how long I have been sitting and taking steps to correct on my own.
