I just wanted to thank you for all that you have done for me. It was only 2 months ago that I had a friend convinced me to visit you. I wasn't sure that you would be able to do anything for me. I had already scheduled surgery for my back. They were going to fuse together L-4 and L-5 because of Arthritis. And I was only going to give you less than a month to try and help me. Well, 2 weeks after beginning to work with you (actually you do all ofthe work), I called my surgeon and cancelled the surgery scheduled for the next week. I am able to move around a lot better. I can crawl around an attic or under a house. I can squeeze through tight areas dragging a charged 1 3/4fire hose without all of the stiffness and pain. It's even easier to climb a 105 foot ladder. And without being able to do all of that, I wouldn't be able to do my job as a Firefighter. I would love to say that you cured me 100%, but, Arthritis is pretty tough on the body. But I can say that I feel pretty close to 100%. I am a 50 year old Firefighter that had never been to a Chiropractor until January of this year. Coming to see you has helped me to continue doing something that I love to do—fighting fires!! With your help, you have extended my career.
Thank you very much,
Capt. Jim Davis
Testimonial of Barbara Scott-Cannon
I have been an advocate of chiropractic care for about ten years. I started receiving adjustments from Dr. Carrie Chmielewicz in July 2004.
I experienced sporadic asthma attacks, sinus infections, pre-cancerous polyps, foot pain, and sciatica. The asthma onset was 3 yrs of age. The other ailments came after the age of 50. I saw my primary care physician initially and he referred me to specialists. I use an inhaler for asthma emergencies. I am not big on prescription drugs. The asthma episodes were the most unnerving. The other problems were bothersome but not earth shattering. It has been nine months and about 45 adjustments with Dr. Chmielewicz. My asthma is under control. My latest colonoscopy showed zero polyps for the first time in nine years. My sciatica is under control and my sinuses are free from infection.
Testimonial of Teri Fields
Thanks to a referral from a friend, I started seeing Dr. Chmielewicz right before Thanksgiving 2004. I started having frequent headaches in January 2004. They came almost daily- at least 5 days a week. No amount of Tylenol would reduce the pain. I first mentioned the pain to my gynecologist in April 2004. She referred me to a neurologist whom I began seeing in July 2004. After CAT Scans with no abnormalities I was put on 3 different medications, 2 for pain and 1 as a preventative. After my CAT Scans I was disappointed because no effort was being made to determine WHY I was getting headaches. I did not want to spend every day on medications. When I went to Dr. Chmielewicz, after my x-rays and scan, she assured me that she knew why I was having headaches and she could help me. I have been keeping a headache calendar for about 6 months. Prior to seeing Dr. Chmielewicz for treatment, I had headaches 24 days in the month of October and 21 days in the month of November, and this was all while I was taking a preventative medication. My first adjustment was around December 1st. After 11 adjustments I only had headaches 12 days in December January has been a great month with only 6 days with headaches. If I do get a headache now, they are so mild that no medications are even necessary. I quit taking all of my medications from the
I am grateful to Dr. Chmielewicz, Chris, and Misty for the excellent care I have
received and for my increasing number of headache free days.
Testimonial of Kimberly Dixon
Chiropractic care began April 14, 2003. Before Chiropractic care I had three to four headaches a month and constant upper back pain. I had a difficult time standing up with correct posture. I suffered with headaches for at least ten years. My back pain bothered me for about seven or eight months. I had not seen any doctors concerning these problems prior to Dr.Chmielewicz. I tried basic pain relievers (Tylenol, Advil). Because of my back pain, I had a difficult time picking up my baby and sitting for very long.
I started to notice some changes about two weeks after treatment began (after 9 visits). My pain started decreasing greatly. After two months (3 visits a week) I began to see a HUGE difference in the straightness of my back.
I am absolutely amazed at how much better I feel as a result of Chiropractic care. I have had one headache in four months. That is amazing! My back pain is totally non-existent. Most important to me is the self-confidence I have gained now that I am able to stand up straight with correct posture, I never thought I would ever be able to do that! Finally, I feel good about the way I look. Family members and friends can see the positive changes since I began Chiropractic care. As a result, one family member and one friend have begun treatments. Chiropractic treatment has truly changed my life!
Testimonial of Katie Borgnan
Chiropractic care began in December, 2003. Prior to Chiropractic care I was
troubled with runners knee and planters fasciatus (pain in the heel and bottom of my foot). I had these ailments for about three months.
I saw one doctor, my Primary Care Physician. He prescribed anti inflammatories. My life was greatly impacted by these health problems. I have always loved to run and lift weights for strong legs. I couldn't because of my knee and foot pain. After one week of having adjustments I had no more pain in my foot or knee. My overall impression of Chiropractic care is that it works and has now let me do the things I love to do - run and lift weights - that I couldn't do before because of the pain.
Testimonial of Vicki Whitfield
Chiropractic care began October 30, 2002. Prior to Chiropractic care, I was waking up in the middle of the night with numbness, tingling and pain to both upper extremities. I was unable to sleep due to this and did not look forward to sleep because the symptoms were so bad. This continued for approximately eight weeks. I worked with my Physician who prescribed Advil, and then Celebrex. He advised me that I had to have physical therapy but I chose Chiropractic care. He was in agreement with me. Before Chiropractic care I was unable to sleep through the night. I stopped working out.
Within five months the symptoms basically disappeared. Symptoms improved in just a few months into Chiropractic care. I have been able to sleep normally. I followed the plan of care to the letter that Dr. Chmielewicz set up for me. I did not miss one appointment! I will continue to see Dr Chmielewicz because 1 am so pleased with the results of my care.
