Chiropractic care is not universal. Doctors of chiropractic generally graduate with the same education. We spend the next few years refining and honing our skills. One doctor of chiropractic does not employ the same...
I received notification in December that I had been voted Elk River’s favorite chiropractor for 2014 (Star News Reader’s Choice). I had held the title for 2013 and, although did some social media and...
My name is Pam Kaiser and I’m a nurse who works full time on the night shift as a supervisor at a large psychiatric hospital. Needless to say, I’m on my feet a lot, and at the end of my shift my right hip was so sore I could barely walk. Four years ago, while teaching my son to skate at a roller rink, I was plowed into from behind by a teen aged speed demon. I fell on my back and my left leg was thrown above my head and bounced off the floor. My left leg was stretched – tearing blood vessels and muscles – I was on crutches for a month. A trip to the ER ruled out dislocation or breaks in my bones. I was told that in time the muscles and blood vessels would heal.
Well, three years later my rig…

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 …

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!

I had been suffering from a very painful choking feeling in my throat and chest for about 6 months. I felt weak and tired because I was really unable to eat due to the pain. I’d been to many medical doctors and tried a variety of medicines that they prescribed all to no avail.
After several chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Carrie, I feel 95% better! The adjustments helped clear my throat and eating is no longer uncomfortable or painful. I now feel stronger and I have more energy and ambition than I have in months. I would definitely recommend Dr. Carrie and her staff!
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!

Just wanted to give a word of thanks for all you have taught us. Charlie came down with a 101 temp on Saturday. It continued through Sunday while reaching over 102. We started on the Colostrum mixed in his milk and tea tree oil at every opportunity we had. Sunday he woke up with a fever (?) of 99. He took a long nap and woke up energized, ready to eat & take on the world!
We never would have had this knowledge without you!
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 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 str…

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 s…
