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 been in marathon training and pain and stiffness in my legs, reduced flexibility and general discomfort made finding effective massage a necessity. The discomfort interferes with my training, my performance and certainly the amount of enjoyment I get in participating in marathons, half marathons and shorter races.
I receive 60 minute massage sessions from Laura and she has helped, along with my regular chiropractic sessions, to return the joy of running to me. Pain in my legs and lower back has been eliminated, my running times are better and my recovery between training sessions and races has been reduced. All of this benefit has been a direct result of my massage sessions with Lau…

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!

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…

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…

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…

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…

In June of 2003, I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. Dr. Carrie discussed with me the benefits of EDS even though I had been given the cancer diagnosis. I began doing the recommended treatment of detoxifying and supplements for areas of the body that were affected a month before I went for surgery. I went into surgery feeling better and stronger. I stopped the detox while on chemotherapy, but continued on the supplements.
I am pleased to tell you that I am now at 21 months with no signs of cancer, even though I was told that I had less than a 10% chance of survival. Thank you Dr. Carrie!

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!

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…
