Success Stories – Chiropractic

“I am very pleased with my progress at HealthNOW Medical Center. When I first came in all I wanted was a quick adjustment for a sore neck. Never mind that I had limited movement when rotating my neck or couldn’t lift my left shoulder and had chronic lower back “outages”. I was so used to all of that – it was normal for me. When driving, I couldn’t rotate my head to the left to check for traffic. I couldn’t even lift my left arm up.

Now, after adjustments, physical therapy and the exercises they taught me, I have full use of my left arm. I can rotate my head and easily move it. I don’t have to worry about my lower back- its stable. I am no longer plagued by nagging pain. I have health now!”

“Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain had plagued me for years with frequent flare-ups. After 6 months of therapy, exercises and chiropractic adjustments at HealthNOW Medical, most of my symptoms are gone. I now have only occasional minor pain when I overdo it.

I am very thankful for the caring staff and result-oriented treatment I have received.”

“I have a severe case of scoliosis. My balance was poor and my gait was awkward. I also used to get severe panic attacks due to my general health.
I had a fear of driving and was very depressed.

The supplements helped me to regain my ability to perform my daily activities with a lot of energy. I feel like a totally new person.

The Physical therapy and Chiropractic visits helped ease my back and neck pain enabling longer hours at work with no stress at all.

HealthNOW Medical also gave me an extremely successful Reconstructive Therapy program. I had hurt my shoulder and Dr. Carrie cured the injury completely with Reconstructive Therapy.

Dr. Vikki Petersen, Rick Petersen and the rest of the staff have given, and are continuing to give, me the best medical care. ”

“I had noticed that my neck was becoming less flexible and had thought to have something done about it. But I never took it seriously until I woke up one morning and could not move it at all!

I envisioned it taking day to subside but Dr Petersen’s adjustment made it 50% better immediately and the next day it was 75% even better.

Well, no way I was letting that happen again! So I have been receiving care ever since. Wow, it is a whole new neck, in fact my whole body’s alignment is much improved.

I really was letting it slide into early “old-lady” posture and now happily can report a reversal!

Thanks to all the doctors for taking such good care of me. This is the first time I’ve ever looked forward to going to the doctor. But, come to think of it, it’s the first time I’ve experienced such great results!”

Best,

“HealthNOW did a thorough job in analyzing my problems and prescribed a detailed exercise, muscle massage and chiropractic program. I noticed near immediate improvement and after 3 months of therapy I finally felt unencumbered by my back.

Given where I was when I started this was a significant accomplishment for which I am very grateful.

I am sure I would not have made this progress, or recovery, without the help and expertise of the HealthNOW doctors.

I wouldn’t hesitate to strongly recommend the HealthNOW doctors for the ability to address severe back problems and their attention to their patients.

There wasn’t a person at the office that I didn’t find to be very pleasant and they were all very dedicated to their craft. ”

When I first came to HealthNOW I was, frankly, a mess. I was extremely depressed and moody, was having horrible headaches, and was literally getting the flu every few weeks. I had extreme fatigue and trouble concentrating. I felt like I was going crazy. I was anxious and irritable all the time. I felt sick all the time. All this had been going on for years, getting worse each year until my life was falling apart.

The doctors approached my problems in a logical manner and persisted in handling the various areas I was having trouble with despite my own laxness at times.

Physical Therapy, Chiropractic and nutritional supplements turned all the symptoms above around. I’m often amazed how much clearer I think.
My memory is normal again. The moodiness is much more under control.
I rarely have a headache. (I cause them myself when I do get them by going off my diet and vitamins.)

For me miracles have occurred and I’m very grateful to the doctors for their help. The tests they had me do to find the right supplements and diet were amazing and have changed my life to a higher quality. The diet has worked very well for me and, one learned and refined, contributed to the final change in life and health for me.

I honestly thought I was too old to reverse the physical problems I had. My energy and vigor for life is way back up.

Thanks! – S.A.

I came here with migraine headaches, asthma and neck pain. I had these severe symptoms for about 4 years. I was taking a lot of medication.

Now after being treated for a few months I rarely get migraines at all.
I only use my inhaler about once every couple of weeks and my neck doesn’t hurt anymore!

Thanks,
B.L.

I learned about HealthNOW Medical Center from a nutritional lecture given by Dr Petersen at work.

When I came to HealthNOW I had a lot of lower back pain. It would take me several seconds to stand up straight because it hurt so much. I also had neck pain with limited range of motion. Since fatigue was a big part of my life, I also took advantage of the clinical nutrition part of the practice.

A month later I feel really good! My neck does not hurt at all and my back only gets irritated if I sit more than a couple of hours. A Big Improvement!

I have learned a lot about how, when, what and why to eat. I’m still waiting for the results of my food allergy tests but the education alone has changed my habits and well being. I get through the day with more energy left over!

Thank you to all the doctors who have examined and adjusted me. – L.F.

I was feeling depressed and fatigued. I had continuous discomfort in both of my wrists due to using the computer too much. I had a stiff neck and was feeling older than I really was. My body was not as flexible as it used to be and my posture wasn’t as upright as it used to be. I had had all these symptoms for at least 5 years.

Now all of these symptoms are gone.
I am 36, but I feel as if I was 26!

Thank you,
I.B.

I was first referred to the HealthNOW Medical Center in the spring and while I’ve only been actively receiving treatment for 30 days, the results have been amazing.

This is the first time that I can truly say a course of treatment has literally changed my life. I have been a chronic sufferer of airborne allergies, sinus problems, migraines, stomach disorders and severe back, neck and shoulder pain. While I have used prescription medication virtually all my life to control the related symptoms, I’ve never found any treatment to relieve the underlying problems. The team at HealthNOW was the first group of medical professionals to actually find the underlying cause of my symptoms!

Since following the course of treatment prescribed, including a gluten-free diet, vitamins, supplements and regular chiropractic appointments, virtually all my symptoms have disappeared in 30 days or less.

When first arriving at the clinic, I was on three types of allergy medications a day, along with prescription migraine pills and the occasional painkiller for my back aches. After starting treatment, I stopped using all my medications and have found no need to even keep them in my purse or cabinet.

You really don’t know what a good day is until you have one again after years of pain and problems. The treatments and consultations I receive at HealthNOW are painless and productive. I have searched for a group of medical professionals who actively wanted me, the patient, to be involved in my own course of treatment. Dr. Rick and Dr. Dean are the first doctors to allow me a seat at the table, so to speak.

While my treatments involve permanent lifestyle changed including saying goodbye to wheat products forever, this is a small price to pay for the amazing changes in how I feel, how I’m able to function and the overall quality of my life.

Prior to finding HealthNOW I was getting very discouraged with traditional medical practices. I was told over and over again that the trouble I had with walking was simply because I was too fat and have arthritis. I was beginning the think the next step for me was a wheel chair.

I attended one of Dr Petersen’s lectures and started treatment the next week. After going on the modified elimination diet and finding out that I am gluten intolerant everything has fallen into place. My allergy symptoms are almost gone and I have eliminated 5 of my 7 medications. I have lost 23 lbs in 3 months!

The clinic has helped me so much with the chiropractic treatments and the physical therapy has helped tremendously.

My energy level continues to improve daily.

Thank you to each and every one of the staff at HealthNOW for the wonderful care. – K.G.

By the time I started treatment at HealthNOW, I had developed a chronic soreness in my upper back that frequently led to painful spasms in my neck.

Prior to HealthNOW, I was seeing a doctor who had given me medication for the pain and told me to rest.  He also told me that I was just getting old.

After 10 months of treatment with the doctors at HealthNOW my chronic soreness is mostly gone, my muscle spasms are rare and I have regained a range of motion in my neck that I didn’t even realize I had lost.
By continuing my upper body exercises and occasional visits with the doctors here I believe that my back problems can be completely solved.

Thank you,
J.S.

I am sending this memo to you to express my gratitude for diagnosing my rib problem and treating it properly. This has been a blessing of gigantic proportion!

I can now trace this injury back to the early 70s – thirty years ago! I cannot count the number of times I have been sent to physical therapy, had MRIs or been injected with cortisone. That process was very costly, time consuming and ineffective.

Your diagnosis of an out of place rib was right on the money. The relief resulting from your treatment was immediate.

Thank you!

I cannot begin to tell you what it feels like to wake up in the morning and not have discomfort or pain. I now know that I do not have to hurt. The greatest relief to me is knowing that should I stress this rib again, there is something that can be done to relieve it. That is worth a fortune to me.

Feel free to use this memo as a testimonial. It is meant as such!

Thank you!!
G.M.

I came to HealthNOW desperate as my physician couldn’t find anything wrong with my foot. I have been complaining about joint pain near my big toe for a minimum of 5 years. Tendonitis was the diagnosis. ‘Take Advil’ was the prescription. The pain would not go away. I went about my business, living with a sore foot, trying varying kinds of shoes to gain comfort, exercising less to stay off of it. Guess I was favoring the foot too much, so my back went out. The good, old complaint of ‘oh my aching back’ was now mine.

Oh yeah, I couldn’t sleep nights either. Three a.m was an especially dreaded hour. I would wake up two or three times a night not being able to get readily back to sleep. My husband was about ready to suffocate me with my pillow as I would turn on the light to read. At least I didn’t turn on the TV!

I attended a lecture at work from this office regarding optimum weight. The health survey pointed out Adrenal Exhaustion. I figured, ‘what could it hurt’? An over all approach to optimum health sounded reasonable to me…just treating symptoms certainly wasn’t working.

I spent the month of February testing, getting chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy, along with consultations for the nutritional aspects of my treatment plan.

By the end of the month, my foot and back pain have all but disappeared, I am still a bit still after exercise, but at least I can exercise again. I’m no longer ‘too tired’. I’ve even worn real shoes (you know, the uncomfortable, but look good kind that all women wear) without any ill effects. I walk the dog, mow the lawn and most importantly I can now babysit my granddaughter without regretting picking her up.

Another trivial but very important accomplishment is that I can now put on my clothes without pain. Getting dressed in the morning was not a fun part of the day. Starting my day now, after a better nights rest (less pain and dietary supplements have helped in the sleep department), I feel refreshed and ready to face the day. My spouse is in a better mood too, now that I am not waking him up in the middle of the night all the time.

Turns out that the foot pain was probably causing my back and hips being out of alignment. I have always (almost as long as I can remember) had pain in my hips during certain activities (like dismounting from a bicycle) it just took a very painful foot and back to finally get my attention and get my body on a healthy tract. Great progress after a month and I can only imagine what another month will bring.

A big THANK YOU to all the staff at HealthNOW! – A.H.

I had a sore right elbow and it bothered me for my normal routine work. After 3 months of treatment, it is totally gone and I feel I got my whole arm back.

I also had a bad neck and shoulder problem. I could not stand or walk in a mall over an hour without sitting down. After treatment, my shoulder is much lighter and I have a much wider motion of range for my neck. I can now work or read for hours. Now I can enjoy walking in the mall without feeling my back is going to break. – S.Y.
