Condition: Breech Baby and Sciatica

For 5 months I suffered from back pain and sciatica. Walking, getting up and down, and getting in and out of the car was very painful. My normal adjustments only provided minor relief as the baby was constantly sitting on my spine. A month before the baby was due I was concerned as the baby was in a breech position.

Results: Your breech adjustment was amazing. Five minutes after my first treatment, the baby flipped and I no longer suffered from sciatica. My last 3 weeks of pregnancy were great.

Comments: It was due to this treatment that I was able to deliver naturally a 9lb. 7oz. baby girl. Thank you very much for all of your assistance.

Comments: I am only 27 years old but have had high blood pressure since about age 17. I didn't even think there was a relation between my neck and high blood pressure until I looked at the chart that showed which symptoms are possible with the vertebral subluxations.

Condition: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

As a factory worker for many years heavy lifting and repetitive work were commonplace in my life. In 1993 I was diagnosed with having carpal tunnel syndrome in both my wrists. After using wrist splints and taking the prescribed medication from my physician, the only solution I was told, was to operate. I chose to only operate on one of my hands and after a painful recovery and 8 weeks of therapy, I vowed I would do anything rather than have the other hand operated on. I continued to work under the same conditions, and the physical problems returned, however this time it included my neck and arms. I was given a prescription for pain killers and muscle relaxants, and sent for physical therapy. The therapy wasn't working and I was getting very depressed.

Results: After 5 months of chiropractic I am able to turn my head without pain, and I no longer wake in the morning feeling like I've been 'run over by a truck'. The best part is I am getting back to a normal life without painkillers and without surgery.

Comments: I've done it the chiropractic way; naturally!

Condition: Scoliosis

Twenty years ago I was diagnosed with Scoliosis. I had to wear a back brace throughout high school. Took pain killers and had massage and heat treatments.

Results: Two years ago I was told of Dr Healey and his chiropractic treatment and drug free program. Now I can walk the malls for hours pain free! In fact I don't even remember the pain anymore.

Comments: Thank you Dr Healey and staff!

Condition: Improved Athletic Ability

I have been playing golf, both recreationally and professionally for over 40 years. Frequently I have experienced back pain and discomfort due to the rigors of the game. During the summer of 1990, I was experiencing so much pain in my left shoulder and arm and weakness and numbness in my left hand that I was hardly able to play.

Results: Dr Dave Healey found the cause of my problem to be pinched nerves in my neck. A series of chiropractic adjustments relieved the pressure and restored the comfort and power in my arms so that I could play and teach again up to my previous ability.

Comments: Now I maintain my spinal health with regular chiropractic adjustments. I think chiropractic is a safe and effective alternative to drug therapies and I regularly recommend it to students and friends.
- Signed, S.P.
Condition: Golf and Volleyball Game Improved

My relationship with Dr Healey began 13 months ago when I was invited to see the results of chiropractic care performed on a close friend. After comparing before and after x-rays I was amazed at the significant improvements I saw. One month later, I decided it was my turn.

Results: The first visit I had was memorable since I felt almost an immediate physical and mental boost. This soon became a regular experience with more visits. After 6 months of chiropractic care, I experienced an improvement in my golf game of about 10 strokes! The results continued a month later when I started to play competitive beach volleyball. I easily enjoyed my most successful year in 5 years of playing.

Comments: These are just 2 examples of many of how chiropractic care has helped me and perhaps can help you. If you are still uncertain of chiropractic care and its benefits, I suggest you take the first step anyway and try it.
