Patient Testimonials........

Hear what patients are saying...

I have always maintained an above average healthy lifestyle until I was involved in a 3 car auto accident…After the accident I was suffering from tension headaches, upper back and neck pain…I was sent to a physical therapist and he insisted on me taking anti -inflammatories…after 5 months I only felt I had corrected 10% of the pain…Within just 2 weeks of starting chiropractic care I felt a huge improvement (about 90% to be exact) especially in my neck area.

I am now back to my old self.-Brad H.

Sophie did not eat!


Dr. Andrew's work has made a big difference! I am so thankful for feeling good again!-Bren W.

I have Fibromyalgia, fatigue, and am always stiff and sore all over…After starting chiropractic treatment I'm 90% better than the first day I came here… I feel my overall health is 100% better. I've learned to change my diet and get rid of some toxins in the cleaning products I use.-Mary R.

The Carpenters are full of energy !!

We brought our son to your office after he had severely sprained his ankle during a football game…after some adjusting of his spine, neck, and the injured ankle, he stood up. We could immediately see the swelling around the ankle dissipate. It was AMAZING! He faithfully did the exercises that Dr. Andrew told him, iced it and within a day he was walking without crutches…because of Dr Andrew's care he was on the field the very next week.-Roger & Kathryn R.

I experienced chronic low back pain for 18 years… I could not walk properly, I had sleep deprivation and could not sit at the computer… After 2 months of treatment I have been pain free, injury free for 6 months. After 8 months-cessation of lower back pain, improved flexibility and energy and I am able to perform flips and rolls associated with martial arts.-Walt D.


A notable difference in my feeling of wellness.-Todd H.

I have two herniated cervical discs which have results in years of neck and head pain as well as muscle spasms through my shoulders. I had spent months in and out of physical therapy, practically lived on Advil for pain and spent hours on heating pads when the strain of grocery shopping, laundry or vacuuming took its toll on my body…Since beginning Chiropractic care, I have discovered a pain and drug free life! I noticed great improvement in the range of motion in my neck. I even began to ask to be adjusted where parts of my body had any pain- my ears, ankles, wrists, and knees… I am able to exercise again, and enjoy family "outings".-Beverly L.

 Jeff uses chiropractic care for a variety of health concerns

Mainly, I just wanted to achieve and maintain optimal health, I have found that my range of motion has also improved.

I have more energy and don't need as much sleep.-Debbie P.

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
