How we have helped some of our patients
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!
I don’t know what else to say other than the plan simply works!!
I don’t know what else to say other than the plan simply works...if you work it! Don’t try to outsmart it or overthink it. Just simply follow the plan as its designed and by all means, DON’T CHEAT!! I lost 37 lbs. in 10 weeks simply following the plan just as it’s written.
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.
