I was recently approached by a mother who noted the continued attendance of my children in class when all their classmates (no lie, all) had come down with whatever sort of fever-striking ailment that...
January brought in a large number of shoulder complaints this year. These patient’s constant pain is often accompanied with significant decreased range of motion. Their symptoms drastically increase with simple activities and continue to...
I have had migraine headaches for the past 10-15 years. It’s been consistent head pain and back twitches and pain shooting down my leg. I use a computer at work and the pain would get so bad I would often have to leave early, not to mention all the other normal activities I couldn’t do because of my bad headaches.
In the past I’ve tried over-the-counter drugs and migraine medicine and they provided no help. I also tried going to another chiropractor, but he just made things worse.
When I first decided to make an appointment with Dr. Carrie I was scared, but she has a very gentle approach and explained everything she was doing. I love the care I get from Dr. Carrie! Now I have fewer headaches…

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!
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…

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…

A couple months after our son came into the world, my husband and I noticed he favored one side and was uncomfortable moving his head and neck to the right. We were unsure why this was and when we brought him in for his 3 month check up the doctor told us we need to make sure we keep switching his head to each side. If he continued to lie on just one side he would eventually have a flat spot and become a good candidate for getting a helmet. We kept trying to switch sides but we could see it was painful for him.
A couple years back we brought our oldest son to see Dr. Carrie when he was getting a lot of ear infections. Since then he has not had one. So we had confidence that she could help o…

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!

Twice I requested treatment, one for my neck and the other for a muscle in my right hip. The next problem caused me very limited head movement to either side. After several weeks of adjustments and doing the exercises Dr. Carrie had given me to do along with the treatments, the condition was totally resolved with no use of any drugs.
The right hip problem had gotten to the point that using steps or putting on shoes was next to impossible. I had to get creative with putting on shoes. Again, after several weeks of chiropractic adjustments and exercises, the pain was gone and has not returned. No drugs were used this time either.
I sought chiropractic treatment because if I went to a regular ph…

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!
