When our baby boy was born we expected to have our lives change forever, but never expected how hard it was really going to be to raise a baby who seemed to be uncomfortable all the time. We had a very long and difficult labor and ended up needing a vacuum assisted delivery. Our baby was very fussy and irritable starting at just a few weeks old. He didn’t sleep well and he spit up excessive quantities. His pediatrician gave us the broad diagnosis of “colic” with the reassurance that it was very common and should get better with time (typically 3 months). After 4 months passed, we turned to the doctor for advice and ended up putting the baby on acid reflux medications. We noticed almost no improvement and his discomfort didn’t really seem to change. When we consulted with a pediatric G.I. specialist and followed his recommendations and still did not see any relief, we decided to seek alternate treatment. After reading up on numerous success stories of chiropractic care on babies to treat colic and acid reflux, we decided it was worth a shot. We found Dr. Dees through a friend of a friend. We stopped the medications and set up our first appointment. We were very skeptical but found Dr. Dees to be very informative and he was great with the baby. The night after the first adjustment the baby sat up for the first time by himself. We didn’t see much of a change except a small improve in his overall happiness/demeanor for the first few treatments. It wasn’t until after the 4th adjustment that we saw a decrease in his acid reflux symptoms of excess spitting up and gassiness which are now within what we would consider normal levels and his physical abilities have increased exponentially. There is no denying the impact that the chiropractic care had on our baby making him a healthier, happier baby.
Waking up in the morning with only one side of my face functioning normally was one of the scariest moments in my life. What was equally scary to me was the fact that there was no explanation as to why this was happening or how to fix it. I went to the emergency room and was told I had Bells Palsy.I was prescribed steroids and antiviral medicine.I was told the symptoms could last anywhere from 3 months to a year and in severe cases could even be permanent.My aunt suggested that chiropractic care would help to relieve my Bells Palsy. Dr. Dees office immediately made room for me to come in. I was given my first adjustment 24 hours after the onset of my symptoms. My face felt tingly and my eye closed a little more following my first adjustment. I also began acupuncture treatment. I think that getting both of these treatments quickly and simultaneously after the onset of my symptoms made it possible for the positive results I have received. I had full function of my face in about 5 weeks.In this stressful time, Dr. Dees did everything they could to help me through this time in my life. I hope anyone that is faced with this illness seeks chiropractic care. I am a living example that holistic medicine really works.
I have had neck and back issues and pain for many years. I have had physical therapy, Acupuncture and chiropractic care on and off for years. The relief from any of these types of treatments has been limited and short lived – mostly due to not sticking with the treatments in a “wellness” mindset. Instead of staying healthy and maintaining good health I have been, like many others, a visitor when things were really bad. Once the symptoms were better, I would stop. Dr. Dees and his great staff spent considerable time on the front end explaining with the X-rays and tests showed and what we expected the results to be over a scheduled time frame with specific treatments. I agreed to make the commitment and made all of my appointments. Another set of X-rays were taken and tests done to compare to the starting reports. The results were better than expected. Dr. Dees’ methodology is straightforward and works if you follow the plan. I have recommended Dr. Dees too many friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. I now know many people that are in his care.
