Candi: I have been a practice member at Discover Chiropractic since 2008. My family was referred to Drs. Hess because of my son’s shoulder injury. After he began care,I saw that Discover Chiropractic was a Family Health Office so I decided that my whole family needed to begin chiropractic care in order to live a healthy life. My husband, 4 children, son-in-law and father all come in and receive chiropractic care on a weekly basis.
I myself am a diabetic, after receiving chiropractic care my blood sugar started to normalize. Every visit to my doctor I would have my A1C levels checked. After 3 visits with perfect levels I was able to convince my doctor to take me off of my medications. My sugar levels have been normal ever since and I am no longer on medications!
Cassandra: I was referred to Discover Chiropractic by my mom. My parents were already practice members, so when I had a car accident, my mom sent me straight to Dr. Hess. I had an old injury as well due to a prior car accident that was irritated. Worse than that, I had been having migraines since I was twelve. I had been to neurologists and was told that is was something that I was going to have to deal with. The doctors said,”There is nothing that can be done, take this prescription when you start to get one and take this prescription if it starts to get worse and if that doesn’t help, come in and get a shot to get rid of it!” I went through this process for year, taking everything including the shots several times over the years.
At Discover Chiropractic, Dr. Amanda told me that this cycle was not right and that they could help me without shots. I could not believe it at first; however after the first couple of visits I felt relief in my neck. After a little time had gone by I noticed that I was not getting migraines like I was before. I started to get a migraine one day and instead of taking the prescription I went to see Dr. Amanda. In less than an hour, I had no headache or light sensitivity! Since then I have been able to come off all migraine medications, blood pressure medication and sinus tablets! My whole family now comes to Discover for specific, scientific chiropractic care and we tell everyone we know what chiropractic care has done in our lives!
Jessie: I was 19 years old and falling apart when I first joined the team in 2012. Months prior to starting working at Discover Chiropractic I was suffering with numbness in my hands. The numbness continued to get worse with time so much so that it hurt to even hold a pen. I would try to shake it off and sometimes it would work and sometimes it didn’t. I was also suffering with numbness in my feet at first I could just shake it off and it would go away but eventually even that didn't help. It hurt to walk and even run which was something I enjoy doing on a regular basis. There was no explanation for my pain I finally decided to tell my mom and she said we needed to go see a physical therapist or someone who could tell us what was wrong. We decided we would make the appointment for the next day. Luckily that day never came and I never went to see the physical therapist. Shortly after I came to Discover Chiropractic, when I first started I knew very little of chiropractic care and the amazing things it can do for you. After I was given a tour around the office I found out that numbness in hands and feet were cause by a vertebral subluxation complex in my neck and lower back. The assessment showed the exact location of my problem area which was mainly in my neck and lower back. After a few adjustments my hands didn’t get numb and slowly but surely with time and repetition my feet now don’t get as numb. Healing takes time and repetition. I have faith that I will completely heal from the inside out without the use of drugs, shots and surgery. I am blessed to find out about chiropractic care and how much it can help me and my family as well as yours!
Katie: I first became a practice member at Discover Chiropractic when I was 12 years old. At the age of sixteen my family moved 30 minutes south and stopped coming in regularly. That was one of the worst decision I could have made because about a year and half after my lapse in care I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia. Trigeminal Neuralgia is a neurological condition that causes extreme pain in the jaw and face. It is loosely nicknamed the “Suicide Disease” because the pain is so intense it often causes the victims to lose hope and take their own life. The worst episode of Trigeminal Neuralgia that I had lasted for 3 months. I went to multiple medial doctors looking for answers. Each one said that this was a condition that I would have to live with. They gave me two options, #1: I could live on pain killers for the rest of my life or #2: I could have surgery where they would cut off the nerves in my face. I chose the first option which led to me playing the medication game. I went on and off 15 different pain medications and antidepressants. The side effects were debilitating. I was missing weeks of school at a time and was in jeopardy of not graduating with my class.
After many hours of prayer God provided my mom with an answer through a conversation at Discover Chiropractic. Dr. Hess reminded her that through specific, scientific chiropractic care any intereference to my nervous system would get corrected. She made me an appointment for the next day and after 2 adjustments I was totally pain free! Through chiropractic care I was given hope for a pain free future. But now not only am I living a pain free I now am able to live an active, healthy lifestyle and help spread the word about chiropractic!
Maggie: Hi, my name is Maggie and this is my chiropractic story. I started as a chiropractic assistant in January 2009. I had never been to a chiropractor prior to starting as an assistant with the Drs. Hess. I was suffering with severe back pain, menstrual cramps, and lack of good sleep due to my back problems. After my first Specific Scientific Chiropractic Adjustment I felt different. I went to sleep that day and noticed that I fell asleep faster than usual with no back problems that night. The healing was amazing so I started to tell everyone that I knew about my experience. Several weeks later I noticed my menstrual cycle came but without any cramps. "How awesome is that! My menstrual cycle and no cramps!"
My daughter Rachel, who is two years old, also started as a new practice member. She had a bad fall when she was younger and like any other mom I was concerned even though she "appeared" fine. I also noticed that she would fall down more than other kids and that when she walked her feet would turn inward. When she started to get Specific Scientific Chiropractic Adjustments, I noticed she wouldn't fall anymore, and that her feet are now straight when she walks. Now my husband and the rest of the family receive principled chiropractic care too. I am full of joy because my family understands the Above, Down, Inside, Out principle! I love the team, the Drs. Hess, and all the practice members here at Discover Chiropractic. Always Faithful!
Marianne: Hi! I've been under Chiropractic care, on and off for almost 30 years. Unfortunately, it's the "on and off" part that caused my problem. On January 22, 2009, I was taken by ambulance to the emergency room with a sky-high blood pressure. The ER Doctor put me on meds and sent me home. Over the following 8 months, after trying at least 9 different prescriptions, I was still on 6 of them, with a myriad of side effects that were affecting my productivity, balance, energy levels and more. So finally, I came to my senses and came to see Dr. Jeremy Hess. After a few adjustments and a new regiment of heart healthy herbs, my blood pressure is virtually normal, and I'm on my way off the last Rx! There is no more dizziness, I have no aches in my legs, the hacking cough is completely gone, my energy is back, and I'm sleeping all night again! I know and understand the miracle of Principled Chiropractic Care...now I fully understand the "time and repetition" that it takes to stay healthy and drug free. My grateful thanks go to Drs. Jeremy and Amanda and the entire Discover Team for their care, patience, and love.
Regina: When I first began principled chiropractic care I was suffering from severe menstrual cycle issues. I had already had two very “uncomfortable” procedures and was headed for a third one. When I heard that menstrual cycle issues can be caused from nerve interference I knew I had to give chiropractic care a try. I was trying to avoid having that third “uncomfortable” procedure at all costs. After just a few weeks of principled chiropractic care I was totally better and I was able to avoid my next procedure! It has now been four years and I have not had an issue since I began receiving specific scientific chiropractic adjustments. I now tell everyone that I know that they do not have to follow the medical route, that there is hope without drugs, surgeries and procedures!
Sam: I came to Discover Chiropractic as a hypoglycemic, migraine magnet, non-menstruating mess. To break that down, I was pegged as a hypoglycemic at the age of sixteen after numerous accounts of shakes sweats and fainting. If that wasn’t enough I was told that there was a high chance of me not being able to conceive a child. Being that I only had a menstrual cycle once a year, my cervical cells were not of the norm and given that with my family history of my mother having complications with carrying and conceiving, I was on the low end of being a potential mother. To top it all of migraines began to set in.
Thankfully, I met my knight in shining armor. My husband, Grant introduced me to the miracle of chiropractic and the Hess’. Through specific scientific chiropractic adjustments my blood glucose has stabilized to a normal level. I have had menstrual cycles almost EVERY month! And I have no more migraines! God saved my life through chiropractic and has given me the ability to potentially give life.
Theresa: Let me start my testimony with a great question...If we all take our children to the dentist for regular check-ups to keep their teeth healthy, Why don't we take to them to chiropractic to keep their spines and central nervous systems healthy?
My name is Theresa and I have been under Chiropractic care for as long as I can remember. I started Chiropractic Care as a very young child. My parents understood the importance of keeping my sisters, brother, and myself very healthy. We went for regular check ups and also if we had any slips or falls, as children do quite often! Chiropractic Care is not just for aches or pains in the back and neck. It is also for those who want to live a long, healthy, life. Because it has always been a part of my life, I thought it to be very important for the life of my family as well. You see, God entrusted my husband and I with two wonderful children and we, like our parents, took their health very seriously. Our children have grown up seeing Drs. Hess. They too were able to be very healthy children!
Now, God has blessed us with a granddaughter and she has been under chiropractic care since she was born (Six days old to be exact). My granddaughter is now 16 months old and she has NEVER had an ear infection, cold, or those infectious runny noses that most infants tend to have today.
The old saying goes like this...A stitch in time saves nine. And i say, why wait till something happens before you see a chiropractor? Why not get yourself healthy and then stay healthy through principled chiropractic care? Any while you're at it, why not get your family checked and lead them down the road of health and healing!
Miranda: In 1994, I was born via C-Section. By the time I was 13 months old I was being medicated for chronic bronchitis. At age two, I was diagnosed with severe asthma. I was on four meds to control it and spent the nest 4 years trying to control it. By the time I was 6, my asthma got so bad that just being outside on a warm day sent me into a severe attack. After several ER visits and hospital stays the doctors told my parents that they had to get rid of all our pets and I had to quit cheerleading. I couldn’t go outside in the summer and by age eight, I was on seven medicines a day for asthma, often accompanied by two or three meds for pneumonia and bronchitis. I was miserable, unable to do the things I loved.
Little did I know there was hope on the horizon. My Grandmother had started seeing a Chiropractor and encouraged my parents to begin care. They were skeptical, believing that you only saw a Chiropractor if you were in a car accident. A few months after my grandmother had suggested Chiropractic care, my mom had a car accident. My parents began seeing Dr. Hess at Discover Chiropractic and had great results but hadn't brought me or my brother or sister in to get adjusted yet.I was nine at this point, still on meds and still in the hospital way too much, and one day I looked at my mom and said, “I don’t like taking the medicine and I feel worse when I do.” Dr. Hess had been asking her to bring me in for my asthma for months so she finally did! That is definitely a day that changed my life.
Within six months of my first Specific Scientific Chiropractic Adjustment I was off all my medicine and was running around like a normal kid. I very rarely had flare ups. A little while later, we made a family commitment to getting adjusted once a week so we could continue to get healthy. After a few weeks Dr. Hess requested that we take x-rays of me again and she discovered that I had severe scoliosis. (Medical doctors treat cases like mine with surgery) In the four years since, I have not had any pain or problems with my back, and the scoliosis has improved- not gotten worse. So that’s my story, except that it doesn’t end there. I still get adjusted once a week at least to keep my spine in line. I have had some correction of my scoliosis and am drug free. And because of all the impact Chiropractic had on my life, I have now decided to become a Chiropractor. It is my hope to bring hope to the hopeless who have no hope of ever receiving optimal health except through the vehicle of Specific Scientific Get the Big Idea Chiropractic.
