I had visited Dr. Carrie’s website and was very impressed by her testimonials and also her vision for wellness. Later, she was recommended by a client who had a similar medical situation as mine. I decided to go ahead and see if this was the real deal. I have had chiropractic and acupuncture care in the past but did not get the feeling of genuine caring or commitment to my wellness as I did at Collyard Chiropractic.
Everything in life depends on something else to work properly (or better), so I believe in combining all of Collyard Chiropractic’s services for an overall well state of mind and body.
I have and continue to urge family, friends and even medical professionals who have struggled with medical issues. Dr. Carrie will put every effort into the best treatment for each situation without judgment. She will provide you excellent customer service no matter if you are a patient who only comes in when it REALLY hurts, or on a regular maintenance schedule. Dr. Carrie and her team ‘Gets It.’

I’ve been suffering with neck, shoulder and low back pain and headaches for several years due to fibromyalgia. The pain prevents me from working and has cut my daily activities and hobbies to a minimum. I’ve tried many things in search of pain relief including physical therapy, pain clinics, and medication. Chiropractic care and acupuncture have given me the best results. After my treatments I feel refreshed, less stressed, my alertness is better, muscles are more relaxed, I have less pain. I would not be without Dr. Carrie and chiropractic! They are at the top of my list for health maintenance!

I was in a terrible car accident about 2 years ago in which my car flipped and slid down the highway. Ever since, I’ve had awful burning and tightness in my shoulders and back. Since I’ve been seeing Dr. Carrie, I’ve had great relief from the pain. Dr. Carrie is absolutely wonderful and her treatment has been very effective. I highly recommend her!

This has been my first experience with a chiropractor and lucky for me, it’s been a good experience! The beginning of the “Golden Years” has left me with more aches and pains than I can deal with. Going to a chiropractor on a regular basis has helped me “cope.” I’ve had every test possible and everything checked and checked again. But my chiropractor experience seems to be helping the most. I like the “personal” touch here and I feel they REALLY DO CARE and REALLY DO want me to feel good again.
Thanks Dr. Carrie! You have been a BIG help!

I first came to Collyard Chiropractic in December of 2011, needing help with depression and anxiety. I was tired of my family doctor telling me I needed to be on medication that would treat how I was feeling. I was desperate for another form of treatment.
My first visit with Dr. Carrie made me feel like I had finally found where I was supposed to be for healthcare. Dr. Carrie actually listened to me, first as a doctor, then as a fellow wife and mom. She suggested acupuncture, much to my dismay (needles!? in my back!?!). Since nothing else had previously worked, I trusted her judgement. After about a month of acupuncture treatments (roughly 8-10 visits) I was amazed at how much better I felt and was sleeping better than I had in a very long time.
Soon after my first acupuncture treatment I attended one of Dr. Carrie’s essential oils classes. I learned what oils to use to treat certain conditions and how to apply them. I immediately started using them on myself and my 18 month old. The combination of acupuncture and essential oils completely turned our family’s well-being around! I use oils almost daily as a preventative measure against illness with much success. In the past year and a half we have only made one extra clinic visit, outside of annual physicals. We have dramatically cut down the duration’s of colds and I have learned to treat an ear infection without a trip to the doctor!
My family and I are so grateful to Dr. Carrie, Julie and Laura for the care we receive, from adjustments and acupuncture, to caring for our 3 year old Reese while mom and dad receive treatment. We love that the office is kid friendly and Reese loves playing in the toy room and visiting with Julie. We have recommended Collyard Chiropractic to everyone, especially if traditional medical treatment has not been successful.

I’ve struggled with fibromyalgia for 10 years. Over the last few years it has gotten progressively worse, causing severe fatigue, aches, pains and limiting my ability to perform everyday tasks at home and work. I’ve tried many treatments from meds, physical therapy, massage and chiropractic care and none of these provided long term relief.
I heard about Dr. Carrie’s expertise with acupuncture and desperately wanted to try it. I was impressed by the immediate relief the first treatment provided. I then decided to add deep tissue massage and Dr. Carrie’s detox program. The long term results have been incredible!
Today I have so much energy, I feel like a new person. My family and I thank you, Dr. Carrie, for the wonderful care and the relief you’ve provided me.

At around three months of age, our little guy “S” was suffering from reflux and constipation. We were at wits’ end, dealing with the poor little guy’s reflux and constant spitting up, combined with the pain and discomfort of tummy problems. When we first visited Dr. Carrie, she assessed “S” and we developed a plan of action. I have to admit, I was frightened and very nervous at our first appointment (seeing your baby being adjusted was a lot for a mommy to handle), but Dr. Carrie took everything slow, explaining each step she was going to do ahead of time and preparing me for what was next. We started seeing Dr. Carrie weekly and started to see improvements soon after. We were also able to start “S” on a regular essential oil treatment, which has worked wonders on not only our little guy, but our entire family!
Fast forward several months, we now have a VERY happy 8 1/2 month old who is off of his reflux medication completely (we had tried several routes before trying chiropractic care)! He has no more tummy issues and is growing into a very busy little guy. We still see Dr. Carrie once a month and will continue to work with her on keeping him well adjusted and happy. We are so thankful for Dr. Carrie and her team at Collyard Chiropractic! They have been so patient, knowledgeable and amazing people to work with. I have to admit, at first I had my doubts about going in a different direction than what our pediatrician recommended, but looking back on the past 5+ months, I am so happy we put our trust in Dr. Carrie!
She gave this mommy and baby their happy life back!

I came to see Dr. Carrie for severe low back pain. The back pain was bad enough, but I was also getting pain and numbness in both of my legs. I could barely move; walking, sitting and standing all hurt! I was forced to take time off from work. After about a week of suffering, I finally went to see Dr. Carrie. Following only a few treatments, I got much needed relief from my back and leg pain. It wasn’t long before I was able to return to normal activity.
At first I didn’t believe in chiropractic. But after going, I wish I had done it sooner. I now recommend Dr. Carrie to anyone who is suffering. My family and I are patients for life!
