WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
"So thankful I found something that works!"
I was in a ton of back and neck pain before coming here. I have Sjogrens and Fibromyalgia which both cause joint and muscle pain, so I was looking for something to help me to be able to maintain an active lifestyle. Now I am a lot more pain free and all my muscles are way less tight. So thankful I found something that works!
"I tested positive for Fibromyalgia... I felt pain all over my body..."
I had been dealing with pains in my lower back and neck for years. I went to see my MD and he said I tested positive for Fibromyalgia. I told my doctor that I didn't want to take the medication route, and instead tried natural alternatives. I started with acupuncture treatments then massage as well as natural herbs to alleviate the pain. These alternatives didn't help, and they didn't have lasting results or immediate relief. I was constantly tired and this affected my daily activities. I couldn't participate in the things I wanted to because if I did I would start to feel pain all over my body.
After my first visit with Dr. Kelly my neck didn't feel so tight, it felt much looser. My pain level lowered extremely and my energy levels increased dramatically. Since I've been seeing her my whole body feels much more relaxed. I am able to tolerate more and actually engage in all my daily activities without feeling pain all over at the end of the day. I'm glad that I found Dr. Kelly's clinic and I plan on continuing with my chiropractic & nutrition care.
"I have been living with chronic pain for over 18 years..."
It's been about 6 weeks now of my treatment, before I was referred to Dr. Kelly I have been living with chronic pain for over 18 years, Fibromyalgia, chronic migraines, back pain, and arthritis on my hands, feet, and legs. I have tried using medication but they didn't help and only made me sleepy. Nothing the doctors suggested seemed to work either it was too painful, excessive or exhausting. My friend suggested I come see Dr. Kelly, I thought what do I have to lose?
My 1st week I was sore but it was tolerable. The 2nd week I saw a little improvement, now 6 weeks later my pain level has gone from a high 10 to a 2. I sleep a lot better now and don't wake up stiff.
After 6 weeks of seeing Dr. Kelly I have more flexibility, sleep better without interruptions some nights. My mood is much better and I have way more energy. I'm still getting used to waking up with no pain. No headaches or migraines, even if I have a hard day and a little tense. When I see Dr. Kelly, it all fades away. I will always see Dr. Kelly on a monthly basis; my chronic pain is finally under control. Thanks to Dr. Kelly and Melissa's help.
