I started Chiropractic care after attending a workshop. Prior to chiropractic care I suffered from severe pains on the back of my neck, head, shoulders, arms, legs, and lower back. I have had numbness and tingling in my fingers, burning on my shin and back. Every day I felt as if I had the flu. I would wake in the morning very fatigued because of sleep disturbances and the pains would increase with stress and anxiety.
I went to the doctor because I could barely walk due to severe pains in my legs. The doctor ran tests to rule out Lyme disease: I was then diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome, a disease of the muscles, tendons, and fibrous tissues.
I have had these pains for approximately one-and-a-half years, as a result of a fall I had some 15 years ago. I also suffered from fluctuating blood pressure at times and the doctor would not prescribe medication, because he thought it was stress related. He had me check and record my blood pressure twice per day over a period of time. He prescribed pain relievers, but I only got temporary relief. When I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, he prescribed Zoloft, an anti-depressant, which I stopped taking because of the side effects.
After a couple months of treatment with Chiropractic care my health improved tremendously. I no longer suffer from chronic pains and my energy level has increased. I am now able to get a good nights sleep and wake without body aches and stiffness. I am enjoying my social life, and most importantly, without any medication and side effects.
Chiropractic care did not just give me temporary relief of my pains, but corrected the cause. I am certain that Chiropractic care has given me my life back."

I began suffering from migraine headaches at the age of four. I visited many medical doctors, neurologists, and allergists, all of which could not offer any explanation of why I was suffering from migraines or what I could do to change my condition. I only received medications to give me temporary relief from my symptoms. I was given Propranolol as a preventative medication, which I took every day three times a day. When I had a migraine, I had three different medications to choose from-Codeine, Fioricet, or Imitrex injections. All three would give my temporary relief of symptoms but had unpleasant side effects. Occasionally I wouldnt get any relief and would have to go to the hospital for a shot of Demerol to relieve the pain. My junior year of high school I was so drugged I couldnt stay awake past 11 a.m. and consequently attended school for only half days.
By the time I finished college and entered the world of teaching, I was waking up with a headache every day, suffering from at least three to four migraines a week and was taking six Codeine just to get through the day. It was around this time that a friend of mine referred me to the chiropractor.
He conducted an exam, and based on the results was able to explain to me what was causing my migraines. He is able to provide relief with simple adjustments to my ribs and shoulders, and other therapies. Additionally, the doctor has also taught me simple exercises I can do at home to maintain the adjustments that I receive in the office. Since I began treatment, I have gone from three to four migraines a week to one a month. I also no longer take medication for my headaches.
The doctor has educated me about the nervous system, why I suffer from migraines; and what I can do to help change my condition. He has also improved my overall health."

"GASTROINTESTINAL DISORDER & ALLERGIES
I has suffered with all kinds of stomach and gastrointestinal problems for over ten years. I had taken Zantac, Pepcid, Previcid, and Prilosec, not mention thousands of Rolaids and Tums, all of which had only helped temporarily. After numerous tests and terribly uncomfortable procedures, my doctors just continued to treat the symptoms and as a result, I received no relief.
When I heard about Chiropractic care to treat my symptoms, I was skeptical at first, but I decided to give it a try. I am so glad I did! After only a couple of months of treatments and following the chiropractors instructions, I no longer have to take antacids or prescription drugs. I now can eat food that I could never eat before without suffering any stomach distress. Not only that, but I sleep better. I feel better. I look better. And I am no longer allergic to cats and can now pet and play with my mother-in-laws cat and not feel any allergic reaction. I have been allergic to cats all my life and now I am not!
As I continue my treatments, I can only look forward to better health and a higher quality of life. I thank my Heavenly Father and my chiropractor for helping me feel great!"
