My story For as long as I can remember, I have had back issues but nothing could prepare me for what was to come. Back in October of 2014, I was ready to get back to work so I took a job as a housekeeper at a hotel until I found an office job. It is a very physically demanding job but I thought “hey, I’ll be OK”…boy was I wrong…on so many levels. Every day that I went in, my back got worse until one day, I literally could not stand, let alone walk. When my back would go out previously, I would be down for the count for a couple of days but then would be back to “normal”. This time though, it just kept getting worse and worse. I could not sit or stand without excruciating pain, I could not do either without help from my husband, and even my 5 year old son was helping me. When I was finally able to get to the standing position, I was not able to stand straight and was leaning to the left at a 90 degree angle. Enter the walker: Yup, I was so bad that I had to use a walker just to get to the bathroom! I worked for a Chiropractor about 6 years ago and while working there I got free adjustments. He took an X-ray of my back and in his quirky humor he told me “your tires are half bald”. Great I thought. He only did manual adjustments and when he went to adjust my neck I tensed up thus creating my neck issues, immediate consumption of in-effective Tylenol and a complete fear of Chiropractic Services. After a few weeks of excruciating pain, my husband Bret finally called Susan Roberts (with my kicking and screaming the whole way) and she got me in immediately to i-Chiro so that the Doctors there could work their magic! It was not immediate relief but every day that I went in I felt a little better. Not only was I getting relief in my back but I was migraine free from an everyday migraine for the first time in about 6 years. I do still get headaches but I am Tylenol free and rely on my chiropractic services to relieve any tension that I am having. Going to see the Doctors and staff at i-Chiro is truly the highlight of my day because I know that I will feel much better walking out of there. While I am still not where I should be, I feel human again and will continually seek out chiropractic care from i-Chiro so that my issues do not deteriorate. I am not willing to settle for disability as I know that I have a lot of life left in me and want to live it! I cannot express my gratitude enough to the staff at i-Chiro and I will be forever grateful to them. Without them I know that I would not have healed to the point that I am at now and would probably have had to go on disability. Thank you i-Chiro staff! Sincerely, Ann Roberts
I have been receiving care from Peak Performance Chiropractic in Northeast Grand Rapids for several years. They have treated my family for many things, including headaches, TMJ, sports injuries and back problems. Because of Chiropractic care, our recovery rate from injuries has been faster and our overall health has been terrific! I budget this care into my Health Care Spending account each year so I can receive care once per week. This seems optimal for keeping me at my "Peak Performance". Without the care of Dr. Mike and Dr. Mark, I am sure I would feel much older than I do today. They keep me feeling young! The office staff is great to work with. Thanks to all of you for your caring and helpful services! Deb
Since I have been getting regular adjustments at Peak Performace, I have less back pain with much greater flexibility and range of motion. Peak Performance has allowed me to continue with my active lifestyle. I can do the active things that I love to do without the pain that I used to think was just part of life! Also, the Pro Adjuster technology is a really neat and safe way to stay in alignment. Thank you Peak Performance!
