Pain No Long Hinders Movement

Chiropractic Success Story - Crossfit Trainer Improves Performance and Strength

Sarah, our amazing Crossfit personal trainer, spends her day helping people strengthen their bodies. A couple years ago she started noticing pain in her lower back and hips. When it started hindering her fitness training and daily life she knew she had to do something about it.

Dr. Dawn had been training with Sarah for a few months so she decided to come see what Family First could do to help. She started care in July of 2013. Shortly after her back pain completely disappeared, she also noticed her back felt stronger and more secure while weight lifting.

Another improvement she saw was when doing squats; her hips no longer shift to one side like they did before. She still sees the doctors 1-2 times per week by choice so that she can keep a healthy body, spine, and nervous system while she lifts!

After seeing these great improvements to her own health, Sarah decided to have her son Everett, and husband Greg checked for subluxations. She's also sent many other fellow Crossfit members to our practice and for that we are truly grateful to Sarah for helping us help the Crossfit community!

Relief From Long-term Accident Injuries

Posted by Curtis on Friday, August 30, 2013.

"I was in a car accident when I was 17 and spent some time rehabilitating with a physical therapist and a chiropractor. We thought that we had fixed my problem in my neck and back, but as I have learned in the past few months, that may not have been the case. I am not 29 and put my back out and spent two weeks working from my living room floor"

"I was able to find Dr. Dawn and Dr. Payton and they took X-Rays of my neck and back and showed me how twisted my discs were and how my neck actually bends the wrong way. I can only assume that this is from my car accident 12 years ago. I was always a little bit afraid of having my neck adjusted by a chiropractor because of the violent twisting and jerking of my neck, but they use this targeted upper cervical technique that is not scary at all, but has made such a dramatic improvement to my lower back pain and my headaches."

"They treat us like family and adjust their schedule to be sure that I can get the care that I need, when I need it. I definitely recommend giving these guys a try. You will not be disappointed."

I had no idea that subluxations could impair so many functions of the body.

"I've had chronic lower back and neck pain for as long as I can remember, and finally had enough of dealing with it."

I Used to Think that Having Trouble Sleeping was Normal

Posted by Dani P. on Tuesday, November 13, 2012.

"When I first started receiving Chiropractic care, I wasn't sure of what to expect. My mom told me to go to an Upper Cervical Chiropractor because I was having bad headaches, low back pain and trouble sleeping at night. I thought these things were normal and expected I had to live with them."

"When I came in to see Dr.D and Dr. P and had my first few adjustments, I started to feel a lot better. I don't get headaches anymore and I am sleeping through the night which is amazing for me! I wouldn't be where I am in my health without the help of Dr. D & Dr. P."
