  • Your treatments have changed my life! I did not think the treatments would work. The pain disappeared so suddenly that I could not believe it. I thought I'd be stuck with chronic pain for the rest of my life. I just feel so stupid for waiting so long to try it!

    Deb SchusterChiropractic Patient since 2013
  • I was anxious about trying chiropractic care for my neck, though I have had great success in the past with other spinal/muscle pain. Dr. Jeremy encouraged me to get evaluated. He then used gentle and precise adjustmnts to bring my neck back into alignment. Most importantly, he explained the interaction between my joints, muscles, and nerves. He clearly knows the science behind the spine and I am more and more confident that I was in good hands!

    Lisa NovotnyChiropractic Patient since 2010
  • Conventional medical treatments for sciatic related pain left me with mild to moderate pain and poor quality sleep. Dr. Nielson's treatments have reduced that pain about 90% in severity and frequency. I now have the tools to deal with my neck pain and I am enjoying my life more!

    Susan WisemanChiropractic Patient since 2012
  • I just wanted to say thanks and let you know how much I appreciate your hospitality, treatment, and always making my visits such a positive experience.  Jessica is always very friendly and makes me feel welcome whenever I call or come in.  Ellen was one of the best massage therapists I've ever had and she did an amazing job with some of my aches. Finally, Dr Nielson always takes the time to listen to my complaints about aches and pains as well as takes the time to listen to my questions as I'm someone who always wants to learn more because the structure and function of the human body is always something of interest to me.  My regular chiropractor treats me much the same way and it feels great that you provide this option for me as well and I truly enjoy the great treatment I receive at your clinic and I just wanted to share that with you.
