Collin—Hearing Restored & Ear Infections Healed!!!

Jennifer brought her son, Collin, into the office because he was suffering with continuous ear infections and hearing difficulties. He was being seen by a sinus/ENT specialist who had recommended antibiotic therapy and ear tube surgery to help with his ear infections. After 4 specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments, his mother Jennifer, took him back to the sinus specialist and the doctor stated, “He has no infection in either ear and only slight fluid in the right ear. There will be no surgery needed.”

Andrew—Infant with Asthma HEALED!!

Andrew’s mom Sharon brought him into the office at 14 months old stating that he was suffering from ear infections, asthma and allergies. She said it had gotten bad enough that the pediatrician wanted to put tubes in the ears and had already started breathing treatments. At one point Andrew was on Amoxicillin, Albuterol and Pulmocort. Since receiving principled chiropractic care, the results were immediate. Andrew’s mom has taken him off of all of his medications, breathing treatments and was able to avoid the doctor suggested ear surgery. I am pleased to say that my son is healing from Above-Down-Inside-Out.

Kathleen & Ella—Pregnancy Low Back Pain GONE & Newborn Gas & Fussiness GONE

I went to the chiropractor for prenatal adjustments. I heard that it was very beneficial to have regular chiropractic adjustments during pregnancy to help the moms body during labor and delivery. During my care I had a tight ligament in my lower belly that was released every adjustment and made me feel 100x better. The adjustments certainly helped release tension all over my body and really helped reduce the pain in my lower back I had for months. I also had all over body pain which was mild severity and consistent. Weekly adjustments made a major difference to keep me on my feet and feeling well the entire 9 months. I was never treated by any other doctor for this problem except the chiropractor. I went straight to the chiropractor at the beginning of my pregnancy and the chiropractor followed me through until the end and months after delivery and also adjusted my baby 2 days post pregnancy and assisted with breastfeeding which was amazing!

I will admit, Yes, I was very skeptical and nervous starting care with a chiropractor. This was my first time ever seeing a chiropractor and didn’t know what to expect. I am so glad that I went and will continue to go, especially with my future pregnancies, I feel that it made my delivery easier!!

My first impressions of chiropractic was Amazing!” Such a friendly, safe environment. The doctor was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything thoroughly! The initial assessment was extremely educational and I was able to share my story and expectations. No surprises! I felt good during my entire pregnancy when seeing the chiropractor.

As I mentioned before, my daughter now goes to the chiropractor! She has been going to the chiropractor since two days after being born. She was seen initially for a post delivery adjustment, breastfeeding concerns, gassiness and fussiness. Now we go for regular, routine checkups.

I would most certainly recommend seeing a chiropractor for all and any health concerns!

Cynthia—Healed Hypothyroidism!!

My spiritual sister Latonya referred me to the chiropractor due to the health problems I was struggling with. I was clinically diagnosed with hypothyroidism, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and later Fibromyalgia. My problems started about 7 or 8 years ago. I was suffering from hair loss, weight gain, fatigue and pain most of the time. My feet were swelling and my back and shoulder blades were very sensitive to touch, which made it difficult to sleep and sit. I had neck pain so often that it caused me to be bed ridden for about three months. I was prescribed so many medications that I could not remember all of their names. (I did not take most of them because I have never liked taking chemicals).

I really came to the office out of desperation. After my first adjustment I was able to lay my head down without any pain. After a few more specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments my pain in my body had completely subsided. I was committed!! After about 3 months of principled chiropractic care, I went back to my physician for a check-up. She could not believe the numbers from my blood work, which were all normal. When I told her I was not taking my medication and that I was under principled chiropractic care, she told me that I needed to continue taking my medication. I have been drug-free ever since.

I stopped coming in for my adjustments for about a month (for personal reasons). My body responded unhappily. Now I am back on track and I am a happy, faithful practice member. My father, mother, my brother and one of my nephews have joined the road to better health through principled chiropractic care. Now we are all healing from Above-Down-Inside-Out. I tell everyone that will listen that this is the way to go. My energy levels are rising and I am functioning so much better.

“I praise the Lord and this amazing chiropractic team for my health.”

Ken—Diabetes Healed!!

Ken came into the office with several symptoms that suggested that he may have diabetes. He continued on with his daily routine and ignoring these symptoms. After a bad fall while working, he began experiencing low back pain. He felt like he had strained his back but after a few days his diabetic symptoms became very severe. After having dinner at a friend’s house, Ken tested his blood sugar level. It was 494! Two hours later it was 507. The next day his fasting blood sugar level was 294. Ken immediately sought medical advice and was advised to start taking Metformin because his blood sugar levels were dangerously high. Ken and his family then immediately came to the office to see if principled chiropractic care would help.

After an evaluation, the doctor noted that the bones were misaligned at the level where Ken strained his back causing severe interruption to the nerves that control the pancreas. After his first specific, scientific chiropractic adjustment his blood sugar was measured and immediately began to decline. Ken was advised to continue with chiropractic corrective care to remove all nerve interference within his body while monitoring his blood sugar levels daily. After complying with our recommendations, Ken was happy to say that his blood sugar levels continued to decline as his body was healing from Above-Down-Inside-Out. The day that Ken wrote this testimonial at our office, his fasting blood sugar level was at 97!! Ken also never filled his prescription for Metformin.

Adam—Autism Symptoms Improved!!

Adam’s mom brought him into the office diagnosed with Sensory Integration Dysfunction, Auditory Processing Delay and Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. These diagnosis’ required speech, feeding and occupational therapy three times per week along with special education placement. His mom said his treatment was on how to “deal” with his disorders not on how to “heal” his disorders.

After Adam’s first few specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments, his attention span improved and was able to sleep through the night. He also said to his mother, That the loud noise in my head is gone. I can hear at school now.

Adam’s mom says, Adams report card showed amazing improvement, and he is now doing well in a regular education setting. Adam can also tell me when he needs an adjustment because the noise in his head starts to return.

Adam’s entire family is now under principled chiropractic care. Adam’s mom realizes that not only does her son’s spine and nervous system need to be in optimum health, healing from Above-Down-Inside-Out, but that the rest of the family deserves the same as well.

Kelly—Fibromyalgia Healed

Kelly suffered with ocular migraines, which would cause double vision, momentary blindness, slurred/slowed speech and confusion. To add to her condition, she also was diagnosed with fibromyalgia-a debilitating condition where parts of her body felt severely bruised and cramping. All of this affected her walking and caused her to be depressed. She had to quit her job as a mortgage loan officer and was considered disabled.

Kelly was treated by a neurologist who diagnosed her condition and recommended standard medial treatment of prescription drugs to combat her symptoms. Her medications, however, helped in some areas but made other problems worse and also caused secondary side effects that were unrelated to her condition.

Since beginning principled chiropractic care and receiving specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments, Kelly has reduced her muscle relaxers and totally eliminated Topomax and other Narcotic pain medications. Kelly said, My pain was eliminated after my first specific adjustment. Ive been under chiropractic care for approximately a year and I just keep getting better and better. My double vision has improved tremendously and I can now walk like a Champion!!! I praise the Lord for the team in this office and their willingness to obey Gods calling upon their lives!! Kelly’s nervous system is flowing from Above-Down-Inside-Out from now on.

Amber—Low Back Pain, Headaches, and Arm Numbness HEALED!!!

Amber came into our office with many symptoms which were affecting her life negatively. She suffered for 10 years with lower back pain and numbness in her arms, chronic fatigue, and headaches. The pain was so extreme that she noticed her attitude toward life was slowly declining. Amber first sought help by a neurologist for the back pain. All the neurologist suggested was surgery and gave her steroids for the pain. Amber decided to get a second opinion by a chiropractor. Since being under specific, scientific chiropractic care, Amber does not have go through with the back surgery. Since her body was able to heal from above-down-inside-out, she was able to stop taking the steroids for the low back pain.

Now, Amber is sleeping throughout the night and does not notice any numbness and tingling in her arms. Her lower back pain has diminished and her headaches have disappeared. After seeing what chiropractic care has done for Amber she has recommended her mother and several co-workers to begin chiropractic care. Specific, scientific chiropractic care has changed their lives, just like Amber!

Body Pains and Migraines

For years I had some major shooting pain in my hips, neck, and lower back that would often cause migraines. Sometimes the pains would be so severe that I had great difficulty working and with driving! I found myself taking Excedrin and Tylenol regularly. Multiple friends of mine suggested chiropractic care.

I was skeptical, but I trusted them so I figured I’d be hopeful and give it a try. My tensions were put at ease as I entered the positive environment. The Doctors alway ensure that I am well educated on what they are doing and why, and I know that as my doctors they are truly listening to me.

Since I have been under regular care, I have stopped having the sharp pains and I rarely find myself in “crisis mode” anymore! I love that Dr. Logan and Dr. Laura are flexible to work at meeting my needs, and that they carry a great concern for my wellbeing! They truly work with me on every possible aspect to ensure that I can get the best care and be in my best health!

Pregnancy and Family Care

My family has been under chiropractic care now for over 3 years and we have seen significant changes in our health! Some examples of the changes are as follows: my son Brett has not had any issues with his asthma for the last 3 years. My kids have not been sick and the only time they go the doctors has been for their yearly exams!

This past year I received chiropractic care during my 3rd pregnancy. (My pregnancy was considered high risk because of my age of 41.) Well, due to consistent chiropractic care, I had no major issues! As a matter of fact, my last delivery was a better experience than the other two! I had a natural birth and delivered the baby within 10 minutes of arriving to the hospital! And neither Emily nor I received any medication during our stay! I contribute all of these things to my chiropractic care plan.

On the behalf of our family, we like to say “Thank You” to Dr. Laura and Dr. Logan for guiding us in a healthier longer life. We consider our doctors as family and we look forward to seeing them every week!

Adult Asthma and Allergies

For years I suffered through severe lower back pain, and occasionally my neck would be so stiff I felt like a soldier. Any amount of time I spent in the car for more than 30 minutes would result in days of medications to ease the pain and stiffness. I also never had a time in my life I can remember where I did not suffer from asthma and allergies. I figured that everyone suffered from health problems and it was just a part of life, so I never saw doctors to try to solve my issues; instead I just took medications hoping for some ease. I was on all kinds of medications including Singular, Claritin, Welbutrin, Concerta, Nasonax, and occasionally even Advair and Albuterol.

I was skeptical about chiropractic care at first, not understanding how it could actually work to help me. Well, I found myself amazed! Dr. Logan and Dr. Laura’s intuitiveness to ask the perfect questions and their persona that helped me relax and trust in their care led to my pain greatly being reduced! Soon after that, I noticed that the asthma and allergies were getting better too!

I brought my son in to get chiropractic care also. He too suffered from asthma and allergies, and even experienced attention deficit issues… but since he has come under chiropractic care, he has gotten better too!

Child Asthma and Allergies

My son, Chris (now 14), suffered from a plethora of allergies, asthma, and sinus issues. He was on a lot of strong medications on a regular basis. He took Singular, Claritin, Astellin, Nasalcrom, Nasonex, Abuterol, Advair, and even regular allergy shots!

Relying on pills was no way for a child to live! However, after being under consistent chiropractic care, his overall health had greatly changed! After a year of being under chiropractic care, I took Chris back to the allergist for full diagnostic testing. His results were all negative! No signs of allergies!! It was such a surprise that they even applied histamine to check that the test was valid. Now, he no longer takes any of those previously mentioned medications!

I knew absolutely nothing about chiropractic care when I first started care. Now, I find myself in awe of the heightened quality of life that it has provided for my family and me. Not to mention the huge amounts of money I have saved! I never get sick anymore, and I even work in a school where sickness and germs are rampant! I always recommend Drs. Logan and Laura and chiropractic care to people I see suffering.

Menstrual Issues and Low Back Pain

For years I have struggled with lower back, hip, neck, shoulder, and foot pain as well as acid reflux and an inconsistent menstrual cycle. I sought relief through physical therapists, an obstetrician and even medications; however, none fixed the problems I suffered with on a regular basis.

When I first came to The Roots Chiropractic, I wasn’t sure it was for me. My obstetrician had told me that I was in menopause, so I had just come to terms with it. However, after just 2 months of chiropractic care, all of my aliments seemed to disappear! My menstrual cycle returned, the acid reflux stopped, and my back, neck, and hip were all pain free!

Today, I have total trust in chiropractic care and I am committed to my personal care plan for life long wellness!

High Blood Pressure

For years before coming to The Roots Chiropractic, I was stressed out, tensed up and unable to relax and let go of the day. My mind was constantly racing. This took its toll on my physical well-being forcing my blood pressure up at times. My primary care doctor prescribed blood pressure medication.

Then a friend recommended that I see these doctors. It was immediately apparent that Dr. Logan and Dr. Laura have a genuine calling in life to lead and care for people. The day after my FIRST adjustment I had a checkup with my primary doctor and my blood pressure was back to a normal 120/84!

Now I recommend chiropractic care to all of my friends who are suffering and I know that there are 3 thing needed for health: Normally working Nervous system, normally working Digestive system and Good food! That’s It!

Leg Numbness and Depression

I first came to The Roots Chiropractic for pain and numbness in my lower leg that was so bad I could barely walk. The office was very welcoming and a safe place, as well as professional. After one adjustment my foot pain immediately improved. The staff took the time to teach me about the connection between the spine, the nervous system and the rest of the body; it made a lot of sense.

Since being educated on chiropractic, I have also sought care for sinus problems, low back pain, an underactive pituitary gland causing low testosterone, depression and anxiety. My medical doctors had me on Zyrtec, Flonase, Clomid, testosterone injection, Zoloft. Now I ONLY use Mucinex on the rare occasion that I have sinus issues (that are not taken care of with an adjustment), and I am on the lowest dose available of the Zoloft.

At first I was extremely skeptical, but all those doubts have been overcome by the results I have experienced. Now my whole family and a number of friends that I have referred all get regular care at The Roots Chiropractic. I also believe chiropractic played a big part in healing my daughter from a life-threatening dairy allergy.

Knee and Foot Pain

For a year and a half before starting care I lived with unrelenting knee and foot pain. I was forced to take Advil several times a week for the pain. When I was first told about chiropractic it sounded interesting and non-invasive.

The office is a friendly, welcoming environment. Dr. Laura, Dr. Logan and the entire team are ALWAYS welcoming and loving. They really care about improving people’s health and quality of life. I saw very fast improvement of my knee and foot pain; it was almost gone after a few weeks. I am making great progress and I have been able to manage the pain effectively.

I am feeling better and sleeping better than I have in years. I also noticed that I have not been sick, even with a cold, since starting care at The Roots Chiropractic. Before, I would get a cold every few months.

Asperger’s and Migraines

For years I have suffered from migraines and Sinusitis, as well as chronic congestion. I also have been diagnosed with Asperger’s. I have generally remained in poor health for many years. I have been to neurologists and physical therapists, but had not received continued relief. I basically stopped caring how I felt and feeling like it was never going to end.

Out of concern for me, my mother introduced me to chiropractic care. I knew that being under chiropractic care would help, but I was really doubtful that I needed it every week. However, I trusted my mother’s advice that my care plan would help, and went forward with it anyway.

I noticed that when I was being adjusted regularly, I was not getting migraines as often or as severe. I also noticed that I didn’t seem to need my Risperdal anxiety medication for Asperger’s! I also noticed that my congestion was much improved and that an adjustment could actually help drain my sinuses! I still injure myself every once in a while, and when I do- Drs. Logan and Laura are there to help!

The doctor’s personalities drew me in and made me feel comfortable under their well-educated and personable care. The office staff is also well versed in the proper techniques and it is obvious that they take great pride in education and skill development for themselves and all of their staff.

Neck Pain with Low Back Pain

For years I have struggled with lower back pain. Then, I was in a car wreck that caused me to have neck pain as well. I am a believer in ‘the power that made the body heals the body,’ so I did not want to be on medications that would hinder that progress. At times, my pain was crippling!

I sought out the help of physical therapists, orthopedics, and neurologists, but it is chiropractic care that I believe has really made the team effective in getting me well!  I have always believed in chiropractic, but it was finding the right practitioner that made all the difference!

The doctors at The Roots Chiropractic listen and truly cares about each and every one of their patients. A doctor I saw previously was not attentive to my needs and I would leave his office in more pain that I entered with. It is an honor to know that my doctors are not just giving to me, but also to their community with sincerity and care.

Today, my symptoms are completely manageable without medications! I am able to get a good night’s rest; whereas before the pain and discomfort made me unproductive and sluggish!

A Safe Place even for those with PTSD

A Safe Place even for those with PTSD: At the urging of another practice member, I came to the chiropractor as a last resort before quitting my job and applying for disability. My top complaints were non-stop headaches/recurring migraines, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and difficulty breathing. Some of my other symptoms included being unable to walk across the room without pain, inability to chew my food, inability to walk up stairs without gritting my teeth and holding my breath, and inability to get a good night’s rest. I cannot remember that time I was without pain, ever. On a pain scale of 0-10, I frequently experienced pain at a 15 and considered a 6 to be a good day!

I also suffer from complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and overwhelming physical and emotional trauma. At The Roots Chiropractic, I found that my PTSD history was not overlooked or considered irrelevant as it had been by other practitioners! Instead I found that the glimpses into my past that I choose to share were both safe and enabling. They listened and applied their chiropractic skills to receive further insight into developing a personal chiropractic treatment plan.

I was impressed by the careful attention to detail throughout the assessment period, and the way the doctors continue to consult and train with other Doctors to stay on the cutting edge of research, practice, and technique. Due to this, I am able to make better decisions for my life.

Under chiropractic care, my quality of life has improved, I have been able to remain gainfully employed, and my baseline level of energy has risen by 10%! I ‘bounce-back’ more quickly and effectively from challenging days and I am now able to participate in more activities that I enjoy! My headaches and migraines are reduced. There are less of the extremely high pain days, my sleep disorder has lessened, and the sciatica is gone!!

I have been under consistent care for the last six months and I can testify that the changes have been significant all around, however, the most for me is that I now hope and support for continued spinal recovery, something that I had not found anywhere else.

 Chiropractic Care for the Whole Family

For years I battled with pain from chronic bursitis. I sought treatment from a physical therapist, which lessened the pain, but did not eradicate it. Then I was in a car accident which irritated my bursitis and left me with ligament damage in my neck. Initially, the neck pain was so intense that it impaired my daily function. I sought the standard medical treatment and was prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxers, which was not a long-term solution.

I had my doubts about chiropractic. I was raised with a traditional medicine only mindset, but I wanted a long-term solution to my problem and was willing to try something I was unfamiliar with when I was not satisfied with the traditional medical approach. Dr. Logan and Dr. Laura are very personable, compassionate, gentle and helpful and they patiently answered my (many, many) questions. When I began care, I had some immediate pain relief for my neck, which continued to improve over a few months. After about 1 month of care, I noticed my bursitis no longer bothered me even when I did things that had formally aggravated it. Since starting care and modifying my diet, I have stopped taking the muscle relaxers and pain medication for my neck, and have ceased taking allergy medications as well.

Now my husband and two children are both under care and have benefited greatly. My daughter began care at 3 years of age after learning that she has some mild hearing loss following a car accident. She no longer has any hearing issues, and both of my children are seen for general health.

The doctors at The Roots Chiropractic are very good at what they do. They have taught us that chiropractic is about removing interference which promotes health instead of just merely alleviating symptoms. Being under chiropractic care has helped our family in so many ways!

Insomnia with Low Back Pain

For years I could not sit or stand at all without experiencing chronic lower back and shoulder pain. I also suffered from persistent insomnia. I had been to physical therapy, but it did not give me true relief at all.

At first, I had a few doubts about chiropractic care; however, I was comforted in how warm and professional the practice was. After being under chiropractic care, I no longer have pain and I am able to sleep through the night! Overall, chiropractic care has given me a better life and wellbeing!
