I had been having terrible BACK PAIN and HEADACHES almost constantly everyday until I started seeing Dr. Carson. At my first appointment he listened to all of my issues and immediately started his plan of what to do. We did x-rays that revealed I had a CROOKED neck and several vertebrae's MISALIGNED! He knew how to treat it and explained the plan. I have been going to him and getting treatments done and feel a million times better. My back pain is almost completely gone and I no longer have headaches every single day! He is a very good and professional chiropractor! I would recommend him to anyone.
My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Carson for about 3 months. Dr. Carson has helped with his NECK PAIN and my LOWER BACK PAIN.. With nutrition we have been able to lose weight and gain energy. We are still working on digestive problems but there has been great improvement in just 3 months. We feel great. Thank you, Dr. Carson.
already sent in review...was not able to get 5 stars on everything before.....when did survey....new computer.
.Laser treatments helped my foot pain go away. Spine is in line and I
go back monthly...Carole very professional to work with and set up appointments.
Dr. Carson is wonderful! I have been seeing him for about 2 months, and I feel amazing! I was having hip and joint pain, sluggish, brain fog, and just overall feeling bad. My mother died from Alzheimer's and I did not want to go down that same road, and I wanted to know if there was anything I could do to help myself. He took X-rays, and I do have some issues with spine, which we are working on. What I really want to stress is how the nutrition visits have helped me! There's not enough room here to tell you how important it is to do the nutrition visits! I have learned so much about what my body needs. I look at food in a whole new way! If you are serious about changing your life around, you absolutely should go see Dr. Carson! Thank you Dr. Carson, Kim Clark
Dr. Carson has changed my life. Through his Chiropractic & Nutrition, my health has never been better. I suffered with chronic kidney pain, no energy, sleep issues & the unexpected onset of Osteoporosis. With Dr. Carsons help & extensive knowledge, my kidney function has greatly improved. I sleep better than I have in years. I'm a very active person & noticed after a few treatments & adhering to Dr. Carson plan of treatment, my energy level is through the roof. I feel better than I have in years. Dr. Carson & his staff are professional & courteous. They take the time to get to know you & work diligently to provide the highest quality of care possible. I will be a patient for life!
I have been going to Dr. Carson for chiropractic and nutritional services for several years. Through a nutritional assessment he discovered I had food allergies which was causing my stomach and sinus problems. The last 16 months he has worked with me on a diet program. I have tried diet pills and every diet plan that was the latest fad. With Dr. Carson's help I have lost 120 pounds plus I have the confidence that I can keep the weight off. Robin Fryar
In May 2013 I stumbled into Carson Chiropractic, I was a complete mess with constant pressure headaches and mental fog with trouble concentrating affecting my short-term memory; intense mid-back pain with intermittent electrical sensation (pins & needles crawling sensation) in my back, neck and shoulder muscles; loss of bladder and bowel sensation with incontinence; muscles stiffness, weakness, numbness and burning; poor balance, dizziness, facial pain, shortness of breath with exertion; speech difficulty, swallowing difficulty, insomnia, increased sensitivity to heat and cold; vision changes, and difficulty sitting.
Along with spinal adjustments and Custom-made Orthotic Foot Levelers to stabilize my spine, Dr. Carson recommended a Nutritional Assessment which uncovered Food Allergens to Wheat, Oats, Soy, Dairy, Nightshades (Potatoes, Tomatoes, Peppers) basically my complete diet; and Heavy Metal Poisoning consisting of Arsenic, Cadmium, and Mercury.
Per Dr. Carson's recommendations, I immediately eliminated all the food allergens from my diet, started on the nutritional supplements and five (5) days later I was headache free which was totally awesome as I had suffered from these headaches for over 12 years.
Upon Dr. Carson reviewing my lab work, he quickly recognized that I needed follow-up blood work for Serum B12 & Homocysteine. The need of this blood work was missed by my Internal Medicine Physician. Due to Dr. Carson's expertise and diligence, he uncovered that I was suffering from B12 Deficiency with Pernicious (Deadly) Anemia. With my Serum B12 level in the gray zone, according to current medical standards, my B12 Deficiency would have gone untreated. even with the high homocysteine level.
I followed up with my PCP per Dr. Carson's recommendations to request Methyl-B12 and Folate injections; Methyl-B12 was not found in his database to prescribe and he had never heard of Folate injections. Dr. Carson recommended Methyl-B12 injections at minimum 2 -3 times per week, my medical doctor was "only comfortable ordering B12 injections once a week for a month just to see how well this worked, and it probably wouldn't affect my homocysteine level at all."
I understood from Dr. Carson what a high risk I was at for a heart attack or stroke from the high homocysteine levels. I took the four weekly injections of B12 and researched on the internet to find where I could purchase Methyl-B12 and folate injections without a prescription and ordered ten doses of each. With Dr. Carson's recommendation, I then started every-other-day injections of the Methyl-B12 and Folate.
My follow-up blood work revealed that my homocysteine level was back to normal and my B12 level was above normal. Dr. Carson not only prevented me from having a heart attack or stroke, my headaches are gone, my mental status has cleared, and almost of my symptoms have resolved in three short months of nutritional guidance.
I am completely thrilled with my progress and eternally grateful that Dr. Carson prevented me from having a stroke or heart attack, which I believe would have occurred in the near future without his nutritional expertise.
Carol is also very knowledgeable, highly professional and well organized to assist with all details keeping every visit a pleasurable experience.

I have been a chiropractic patient with Dr. Carson for many years. Last May, 2010, I started a nutrition program with him. I felt that I had to do something! I had acid reflux problems, esophageal spasms, and fibromyalgia to the point that it affected my daily activities, especially sitting for any length of time. He explained that it would take time ( like peeling the layers of an onion away). He discovered that I was allergic to eggs, milk and wheat. It was difficult at first to give up these foods, but my quality of life is much improved! My digestion is better, no acid reflux, I sleep better, no more body aches, and I can sit without pain. I even drove to San Antonio last November with a friend. (No pain). I lost weight in the process, too. :)
Thank you Dr. Carson for improving the quality of my life.
I have been seeing Dr carson for 4 yrs for my scoliosis I had sever back pain and could not stand for any length of time. I now can stand for as long as I want to. What a relief. I also started nutrition about 2 years ago for stomach and sleep issues.. I now have no digestive issus. I now sleep all night, where I was lucky to get 4 to 6 hours. I was a complete insomniac, but not any more. i would recomend Dr Carson to any one needing chiropractic care or has any kind of health issues. lisat1210
I found Carson Chiropractic by chance over a year ago when I moved to Hot Springs from Kentucky. I am so lucky that I did!
I was seeing a chiropractor for years and could not hold my adjustments from month to month. After seeing Dr. Carson for both chiropractic and nutrition, my neck and my overall health are much improved. I also have a congenital heart defect which made it difficult to breath and exercise. Within a few months, my heart is noticably better. Other health issues that have improved are: no more headaches, better digestion, increased energy, and peaceful nights sleeping.
Thank you to Dr. Carson and to Carol! If I ever move back to Kentucky, I'll have to fly back here for appointments!
I have seening Dr. Carson for 3 years now for both Chriopractic and Nutrition. I have suffered with chronic back pain most of my adult life. Dr. Carson has helped with my back issues better than any of the other chiropractors I have gone too.
Also, for almost 7 years, I went through extreme stomach and bowel pain that regular medicine had not been able to diagnose. It too about 10 minutes for Dr. Carson to discover that I was allergic to milk (love my ice cream and Oreo Cookie Shakes), cheese (Mexican food!) eggs (over easy please) and wheat (sandwiches!). Now, I do not spend most of my evenings in the bathroom doubled over in pain.
Dr. Carson is also helping me with depression and other ailments (like lack of energy). I didn't know how good happy and healthly felt until I started with the nutrition.
I have been employed at Carson Chiropractic & Acupuncture for 9 years. I witness the great results on a daily basis with conditions such as migraines and back pain to fibromyalgia and digestive issues...the list goes on and on. Personally, Dr. Carson has helped me with many of my own problems starting from the ground up by first fitting me with custom-made shoe inserts which balanced my spine and ended my foot pain. He relieved my neck and shoulder blade pain through chiropractic adjustments and therapy and is currently working with me nutritionally which has resulted in an improvement in my overall health, mood and attitude.
I've been seeing Dr. Carson for several years now and my scoliosis and sciatica are much improved. I was in a car accident last year and had whiplash injuries - I improved significantly through his care. He's friendly and will listen to you. I much prefer his clinic than a medical doctor clinic.
I'm a year into counseling with Dr. Carson for my nutritional needs. He uses muscle response testing to determine what part of your body needs attention and then supplies whole food supplements to support your weak areas. I hardly can tell I have arthritis any longer - the pain is just not there. My digestive system is my friend - I'm much more comfortable. He even found some food allergies that I didn't know I had. After eliminating them - I feel even better. You can get better - go see him!
