“I had been suffering from back pain for over six months, to the point where I was crying curled up in a ball not knowing what to do. Ibuprofen wasn't helping at all. Finally, I decided to see a chiropractor. I looked up chiropractors near me and Dr. Cassidy was probably the 5th office I called. I immediately felt at ease with Patty helping me over the phone. She made the process simple. I went in for a consultation and started treatment. I was a bit skeptical because my pain was just overbearing but Dr. Cassidy said I should be back to normal after 4-5 visits. Sure enough, he was right. I am now completely pain free and go in for maintenance. Thank you Dr. Cassidy for helping me!”
“I’ve had lower back problems since I was very young. I had aggravated my lower back pretty bad again and usually I could do exercises, chiropractic treatment, rest and this time those things would no longer relieve my pain… I found out thru my MRI’s that Dr. Boelk went over with me that I had 5 protruding discs. I did not want to get surgery as I have heard and seen that they don’t always work very well at all. I am 2/3 of the way done with Dr. Boelk’s program and I have zero pain. I pretty much go thru my activities with no pain. As I follow the program it has been absolutely fantastic! This can be the starting point for anyone with back pain to get their life back.”
“When I was 33, I had my first spine surgery. Then 8 months later, I had a second spine surgery. I was in bed for almost 4 months, unable to do anything but just lay there in pain. During the next 4 years I had my ups and downs and still felt not very well at all. The doctors told me I needed a 3rd surgery! I decided at this point I did not want that. Finally I began Dr. Boelk’s non-surgical approach and started decompression treatments on the DRX-9000. His program has completely changed my life. I feel wonderful, the pain is gone and my other health problems have also gone away. I deeply appreciate what Dr. Boelk and his staff have done for me here.”
“I came to this office with advanced osteoarthritis and severe lower back pain. Dr. Boelk and his staff were my last stop before surgery on both lower back and hips. For over 10 years, I could not run, play basketball or just do chores around the house without constant pain. This center has done something no other could do, which is given me my life back.”
