A Family Affair

Our entire family comes in to see Dr. Doug or Dr. Sara at Active Live Chiropractic! I started getting adjusted 13 years ago, when I was pregnant with our twins! I was having some pain and discomfort in my lower back, and with the adjustments I was able to make it all the way to 38 weeks! That made a huge difference in the development of the twins and their health right from birth. I also suffer from pain in my mid back due to shrinking disc spaces in that area; being adjusted helps relieve the chronic pain that comes along with it. I also love the fact that the doctors at Active Life will suggest other methods of care along with their adjustments. Recently, when I was struggling with plantar fasciitis Dr. Doug recommended that I start seeing a massage therapist and that I do some extra stretches along with getting adjusted, and it has made all the difference. I am now able to walk and function normally again without worrying about whether it will hurt.

My husband has suffered most of his adult life from troubles with an extra vertebra in this lumbar region. During this time, through the help of chiropractic care, he has been able to get relief without the need for surgery.

Our oldest child, who is 14 years old, has been screened for borderline scoliosis, and is very active with sports, playing volleyball and doing gymnastics. She started having a lot of pain in her upper body, back, neck, and arms. It got to the point where she was struggling with trying to get a good night of rest due to how tight and stiff her upper back and neck had become. Now that she is getting adjusted she is able to do more exercises that also help keep her much more limber and loosened up so she can get a good night of sleep as well as increase her performance in her sports!

Our twins are 12 years old now, and are just as active as their sister! Our son likes to play sports and hunt and with occasional adjustments has been able to keep him playing at full speed. His twin sister also likes to play volleyball and does gymnastics. She has been going to get adjusted for preventative care so that she does not end up having the same pain and joint issues that her sister was having.

So you see, it’s a family thing and we enjoy coming in to see Dr. Doug or Dr. Sara because we know they’ll make us all feel better and we love the care and attention we receive while at Active Life Chiropractic! We also love the friendly staff and   helpful attitude by their entire team. We refer all of our friends to Active Life!
