I want to thank all of you for creating a friendly, warm environment that is more like going to a nice home than a Doctor's office visit.
It's been nearly 6 months since I started my chiropractic sessions at your office and I have noticed many positive changes since then. The main reason for my visits was to deal with acute lower back pain. I'm pleased to say that it is now 90% gone. After taking your nutritional advice I have lost 15 pounds and have has a 20-points drop in my cholesterol rating that still falling. Other noticeable changes have been more energy, better focus and mental alertness.
Your chiropractic sessions have truly been a life changing experience for me. Thank you for your dedication and timely advice. You have a true gift of healing for all of those who heed your advice.

When I first came to Bartholomew Family Chiropractic my upper back, shoulders and neck hurt on a daily basis. At night I would wake up from the pain in my neck and back. During the night I would also experience tingling and numbness in my hands. My lower back also hurt on occasion, which caused me to have pain in my leg. I have tried Alieve, heat, and exercises in the past which helped me get through my dayd to day tasks. I was unable to take part in the things I enjoy such as gardening, sewing, hiking, etc. I haven't been able to take part in these activities in the last two years without aggravating my symptoms.
I started treatment at BFC in march of 2008 . I am greatful to say that I am feeling much better. Though the tingling in my hands still occurs on occasion, my treatment is helping to steadily decrease that. It used to happen every night, but now it only happens about once a week and does not last as long. Also my neck, shoulders, upper back, and lower back are pretty much pain free.
I am grateful to say that I am again able to take part in the things I enjoy without the pain I used to once have. I think coming to BFC has greatly improved my quality of life! Not only do I have a higher energy level, and am almost pain free, I have feel better. I never realized how much my spine could afect my overall health.
Thanks Dr. Brian
This is a letter to thank Dr. Brian Bartholomew for all the relief he has given me from pain.
When I first started seeing Dr. Bartholomew there was a lot of things wrong with me because of something that happened 2 years ago. Short and long of it is I had a simple same day surgery on my right knee to get rid of arthritis in my knee. Well I got staff infection in that leg and ended in the hospital and then after I was home for a week I got a full blown blood clot in left leg so back in hospital again. I was in there for 2 weeks and the last week was down in rehav learning to walk with a walker. So there I was both legs bad and not being able to walk. So 6 weeks of physical therapy at home 3 times a week and then more physical therapy after I started back to work,k I ended up going to physical therapy for at least 2 more months before I was released. Well needless to say I was in a great amount of pain from my knees and left and because of this pain I started to compensate by putting a lot of stress on my back. Well because of this I had constant back pain and knee pain I could not stand for long and as for walking that was another project that I could not do for any long stretch of time. Also I had numbness in my right arm and hand and I could not lay down on my right side without pain.
Now I can walk without pain and I lie on my right hand side without pain. I also do not have any numbness in my right arm and hand any longer. I walk every day and I have more energy than I used to have. I also has acid reflux and used to take Prilosec every day. I just realized a couple of weeks ago that I haven't take Prilosec in a long time. I can't ever remember when I had to to take one so there is another reason why I think Brian is the greatest. I thank the Lord everyday for guiding my footsteps to his door and I will continue to go to him.
I have been coming to Dr. Bartholomew since September 2008. When I first came I was in a lot of pain and on pain medicine. It hurt to walk and move. I could not lift a gallon of milk or a grocery bag.
Since coming I have not taken pain medicine for six months. I still have pain sometimes, but now I come in for Dr. Bartholomew to adjust me. After no more pain. I can now go to the grocery store by myself, because I can now lift a gallon of milk and the grocery bag.
My favorite part of the adjustment are my hands and feet. I did not know my hands hurt till Dr. Bartholomew adjusted them and my hands felt 100 times better.
