“Dr. Sara and Dr. Doug and the staff are so awesome and always very friendly. I recommend them to anyone in any pain. Not just back and neck pain!”

“We hesitated on taking Piper to a chiropractor! My husband and I thought it would be someone cranking on her little neck and that just seemed awful to do to her; but it is nothing like that! It’s gentle to the touch, massages and stretches. It is one of the best things I could have done for my daughter!”
“I have been seeing Dr. Weigel for several years and have always been pleased with the service provided. My life changed on October 10, 2007 when I was injured by a rocket attack in Baghdad, Iraq. I started seeing Dr. Weigel to assist with pain management, and she was incredible in not only reducing the daily pain issues, but astonishingly, she assisted with my hearing loss. I am a firm believer in chiropractic care and receive the best from Active Life Chiropractic.”
“Any chiropractor I had been to before was a ‘come when you need it’ type of place, and I truly believe the routine maintenance that Dr. Doug and staff suggests is a way better approach to overall comfort and health. I have been seeing Dr. Doug for about 2 years and can’t imagine how life would be if we didn’t find him.
“Returning to Bismarck from a ski trip in Colorado, I grabbed the duffel bag off the carrousel and the pain in my back literally took me to my knees. I decided to try a chiropractor. I talked to a few people and decided to call Active Life. The pain was better after a few visits. After just four weeks, my foot is almost back to normal and I am walking much better. I’m looking forward to a hike in the Black Hills, another trip to Denver and next year hiking in Glacier Park.”
“I was having major pain in my right wrist, I could barely grab anything without tremendous pain. I went to see Dr. Weigel and I was 100 % pain free in about a month. I truly believe in chiropractic care because for one you WILL save you money in the long run by using chiropractic care instead of going to the clinic and maybe getting some surgery you don’t need. For another it has helped me in my life to continue forward without pain.”
“At 8 months old our daughter, Ella, continued to show “colicky” traits such as inconsolable crying and general discomfort. I was apprehensive about seeking chiropractic care, as I thought it would be invasive and scary for my baby. However, the care at Active Life was just the opposite. The adjustments were gentle and everything was explained before treatment was given. After the recommended treatment Ella seemed so much more content, happy, and interactive.”

For about a year and a half, I have had really bad heart burn. It affected everything I did from staying fit to showing animals with 4H. I went to several doctors, walk in clinics, family doctors, and even allergists. I got diagnoses such as asthma, vocal cord dysfunction, hay fever, allergies, heartburn… and the list goes on. I was on a lot of daily medication and I had a choice to make. Did I want to continue taking pills for the rest of my life or change something? I began going to Active Life Chiropractic to see Dr. Sara Weigel. She has helped tremendously; even to the point where I am no longer taking any pills! With Active Life Chiropractic, I can enjoy the things I love without worrying about my heartburn. I will forever be grateful for Active Life Chiropractic and Dr. Sara!

Our whole family has started coming to Active Life Chiropractic! Our son Gavin was the first to come in. He was 9 months old, and was not wanting to sleep through the night. Now after only 10 adjustments he is sleeping 10 to 12 hours a night! He always has a big smile for everyone when we come in to see Dr. Sara!
I started coming just a couple months after Gavin first came. I was having pain and stiffness in my hips and in my upper back after having Gavin. It is amazing!! Nine months of living with pain and it is so much better now after 8 visits! It is so much easier carrying my little man around!
Dad, Wade, started coming the same day that I did! He was having some lower back pain along with his scoliosis. And with 7 visits his pain has diminished and can enjoy playing with Gavin again!
I am so glad we found Active Life!
I brought my twins, Ruby and Jack, to see Dr. Sara when they were 4 weeks old. My son had digestive issues and my daughter seemed colicky. After about 3-4 visits they were sleeping better and crying less. They just seemed happier and more content overall. The twins enjoy coming to see Dr. Sara and my husband and I enjoy the extra sleep we get afterwards!
Dr. Sara and the staff at Active Life have helped me in so many ways it will be hard to wrap it up within a few sentences. When I began seeing Dr. Sara I was overweight, I was tired and I was in constant pain. Looking back at it now, I was sick. The past 5+ years she has encouraged me to find my way into a healthy and active life style while helping treat the physical pains that were holding me back! Thanks to her continued care and advice I have minimal headaches, hip aches and back aches. I’m maintaining a 50+ weight loss and I’m now happier and healthier than I was in my teens!
The staff at Active Life are irreplaceable. They know you by name and greet you with a genuine smiling face at every appointment. They take the time to prove they care. It’s not a shuffle in and out the door. If you have concerns or questions about your health they will address it and help! Not only have I benefited from Dr.Sara’s care. I have family, friends and even my own babies have been helped Dr. Sara. She and her clinic are a true blessing and I look forward to our standing monthly appointments.
It is almost unthinkable how much Chiropractic care helps me in my day to day life. Honestly, I’ve benefited more than having an adjustment done. The wisdom and knowledge she and her staff have about living an active lifestyle have been so beneficial to me. I am now using a standing desk, thanks to the recommendations of Dr.Sara. I’m thinking about the way I sit and stand and how much water I’m drinking. I take time to workout, stretch and take care of my body. I’m now able to live the active life I have created…pain free!
Thank You, Active Life. Thank you all of you for helping me and encouraging me to be the active and healthy person I was meant to be. I cannot thank you enough!

Before chiropractic care, taking Advil and being in pain of some sort was the norm in our family. It seemed as if we didn’t have enough energy to even keep up with our children. Our kids were constantly complaining of headaches, their back hurting, and bed wetting. We finally had enough and wanted to take charge of our lives. When we were first told the value of maintaining chiropractic care, it was almost too good to believe. It didn’t take long before we were believers. My husband and I started to take less Advil and had fewer aches and pains. Since we felt good, we had more energy and wanted to go out and enjoy activities with our kids. Sitting on the sidelines definitely became less of a norm. Our children have also benefitted from receiving chiropractic care. Our oldest child complained almost daily of having headaches. We took her into our family doctor and the eye doctor, but nothing was solved. She started seeing Dr. Sara, and we learned her neck was extremely out of place. We no longer have any tears or have to hear her saying her head hurts.
Our second child also complained of headaches and her lower back hurting. Since we had such great results with chiropractic care, we knew this was the route to go for her as well. As a parent there is nothing worse than having your child come to you saying they hurt, but there is nothing you can do to help. After visiting the chiropractor regularly she no longer complains either. Our third child never really complained about anything hurting, but he was extremely clumsy and we noticed when he was riding his bike he did most of the work with his one leg. It even got to the point where he just got off his bike and pushed it. He also had a lot of trouble with wetting his bed. Dr. Sara checked him out and we found out his pelvis was out of place. He now pedals his bike without any trouble and when he does wet his bed we know it is time to take him back in to get adjusted. The baby of the family is definitely the luckiest! She came along as we were discovering all the benefits of chiropractic care. Her first visit was when she was about two weeks old. She was the best baby! She slept good, ate good, and hardly cried. She was the only one that didn’t need a special formula and rarely needed gas drops. We continue to take her in as she reaches different mile stones to help her maintain her health.
This is just a glimpse of our story and the benefits of maintaining chiropractic care has had on our family. We wanted our children to feel good and be healthy, and we wanted to feel good too. Taking charge of our life is the best thing we could have done for our family. We are truly blessed to have found Active Life Chiropractic because they have made this possible for us.
-Thanks for all that you do!
Our 3-year-old daughter, Bria, was struggling with constipation. We had tried months of medication, fiber supplements, prune juice and most other tricks recommended to us with little to no results. We heard chiropractic care was also used to treat constipation in young children and decided to give it a try. We are so glad we did! Within a few treatments with Dr. Sara we were noticing a change in Bria, and a month into the treatment plan she was going regularly. We also went from Bria not being potty-trained to being fully trained as she went through her chiropractic treatment plan. She looks forward to seeing Dr. Sara and the staff at Active Life, and is completely comfortable at her appointments. We are so thankful for what Dr. Sara and chiropractic care has done for our daughter!
The feel of a start line is unlike any other. The building adrenaline, excitement, the body’s anticipation of the challenge that lays out ahead. The pure passion of the sport. To think at one point of my life I was told that running was something I needed to put up on the shelf. That with 70 years still left to live (at least) I needed to give up something that made me feel alive. The most terrifying and saddest part of it all was I listened. Then life has a funny way of putting things back in your path when it knows you are ready to find your way over the mountain. After years of reciting, “my body just doesn’t run” I decided that I needed to figure out a way for this to become a part of my life again. This is when I stumbled over chiropractic. I was clueless at the possibilities, but I thought it was worth a shot.
So, there I was the morning of August 23rd. 6.55 miles lay ahead of me of the Half Marathon Relay I had committed to with my best friend. I had never been as scared at a start line as I was that foggy, rainy morning. Two weeks previous I had been sporting a walking boot since June, after a very heartbreaking foot injury and I hadn’t ran more than 3 miles since then. A part of me knew taking on this race was crazy and a part of me knew that I could do this.
A year ago, before I started getting adjusted I would have never been at this place. I wouldn’t be standing at this start line, I wouldn’t be trusting my body’s ability and I wouldn’t be mentally confident to trust what I knew it could do. I probably would have listened to someone tell me that my foot was in no shape to run again, that I needed to pollute my body with medication and that this injury was defining me instead of allowing me to grow from it. On the surface simply put, chiropractic has given me among many things, my ability to run back (Not once, but twice now!). It has allowed my bodies nervous system to function in the capacity that it needs to carry me the miles. Underneath the surface though, chiropractic has given me a new perspective on the beautiful thing that our bodies are when we take care of them. Every race I run, I do not do them for the medals or the miles or the T-shirts. I do them mostly because I can. I was given this gift back and I treasure every run, the good and the bad. I run every race for someone and always allow the race to define who that person is and that is who my finish medal goes to. On this foggy morning I knew undoubtedly half way through, that this race belonged to Dr. Ness for helping to give me this gift back and for helping me to see my bodies potential to be awesome.
I decided to go to Active Life Chiropractic about two months ago because I was experiencing headaches causing me to miss work. Since beginning Chiropractic care I have only had a few headaches and have not missed any time from work. I have also been dealing with allergies for over 3 years, my regular doctor told me the day before to use my Flonase and other allergy medicine religiously! It has now been over 5 weeks since the last time I used my allergy medicine. Choosing to start chiropractic care with Dr. Sara was one of the best decisions that I have made!

My husband and I were apprehensive about bringing our 6 month old, Nora, to the chiropractor. But we are so glad we did as the outcomes have been amazing! Our little girl was extremely fussy, had continuous ear infections, was not sleeping well, and needed to be held all the time. After two adjustments, we noticed she was more content, sleeping better. Eventually, the constant ear infections were not an issue. No more weekly trips to the doctor for antibiotics!
We want to thank Dr. Sara for everything she has done. We appreciate the kindness, energy, and positive attitude from all the staff at Active Chiropractic!

My first experience with chiropractic was when I was in my second trimester of pregnancy with my first son. I was suffering from pain and tingling in my lower back, hips, and legs due to my sciatic nerve being pinched. I also had carpal tunnel issues in my arms and wrists. My friend, Dr. Sara, suggested I come to Active Life to give chiropractic a try. I came in for an initial consultation and for my first adjustment. They explained the whole process and I got instant relief after my first adjustment. I was a believer in the power and effectiveness of chiropractic since that first adjustment. I continued to come in for adjustments and the rest of my pregnancy, along with labor and deliver, were undoubtedly made easier because I was receiving regular chiropractic care at Active Life.
Over six years and three kids later, our family has benefited from chiropractic care at Active Life in many ways. Our three sons have been adjusted since birth. My husband, our children, and I utilize chiropractic adjustments to recover quickly from injuries, general aches and pains, and even illnesses and we also utilize maintenance care. If we notice something is out of alignment, or if one of our kids seems to be coming down with an illness, our first call is Active Life!
Just as importantly, Dr. Doug and Dr. Sara both provide great insight and advice regarding nutrition and overall wellness. Both have spent time researching specific issues our children face, focusing on getting to the root of each issue or problems, and not just trying to mask symptoms. They truly care about the health and well-being of everyone they see at their clinic, and that means the world to us.
I recommend Active Life to almost everyone I know, and even people I don’t know via local Facebook moms groups. I know the amazing difference it has made in our lives and I want everyone to experience that!”
