“I’ve been experiencing debilitating migraines since I was 15. It seemed like anything could trigger one: stress, missed sleep, dehydration, and changes in weather. Over the six months before I started receiving help I had been getting 3-4 per week. I’ve tried prescription medications, but the results were shaky and it seemed like the side effects were always worse than the benefits. Before I came here I was on 3 meds at the same time and the cognitive effects were making it tough to function. The pain was terrible at its worst and it made it tough to do anything. I’d miss class meetings and plans to hang out with friends and I wouldn’t be able to inform people I wasn’t coming because I was in too much pain. A family friend had seen good results from the office and referred me in. Since coming here it has been amazing. I’ve stopped takin all the meds I was on and my migraines have been reduced to one every two weeks rather than three every week. My whole body feels better. I have scoliosis and used to not be able to sit straight. Now I can. My posture is better. Since it is a holistic system, Dr. Mike is also encouraging me to do important things outside of chiropractic such as getting on a better sleep schedule. He also lets me know about other health information that I wouldn’t have heard about otherwise, such as oil pulling, new studies on prescription drugs, and advice on healthy posture for things like reading and sleeping. Everyone is always super cheerful even though I always take the earliest appointment slot in the day!”
