My story is almost too brilliant to believe. I am a type A, hard working CPA, who was almost finished working on my MBA when I was debilitated with a condition called trigeminal neuralgia. My five year plan was put on hold. You know the five year plan to take over the world. I saw countless doctors over a six month period. I was, and I am not ashamed to admit it, at the end of my rope. My “doctors” had me on 15, yes, 15 different medications for pain, including perocet, oxycontin and morphine. Nothing could touch the pain!!!… Read more “15 different medications for pain”
A few years back, I fell at work, not really thinking I was injured, a few months later the pain and muscle spasms, a lot of pain, created a lip on the left leg. Went to a different Dr. some relief, but the pain continued and sometimes got worse, my daughter made a recommendation… So I decided I had enough, saw Dr. Heidi, she took an x-ray… now I am really not happy, she says HIP, bad you will be needing a hip replacement… SHE, DR HEIDI; did the adjustments and after the 1st three, I was in much less… Read more “Amazing Dr. Heidi”
Dr. Ben, Just before I had my very first visit with you I found out that I had an abnormal pap. They tested it for Cervical Cancer (early stage) and, let’s just say the results were not so hot. So she told me that in order to fight this I needed to change my life style. No more smoking and no more junk food. She said with healthy eating that would boost my immune system and that would fight off the cancer. Since I have been coming to you I quite smoking, I am eating a healthy diet and I… Read more “No more smoking and no more junk food”
I feel better than I have in a long time. Being new to chiropractic care, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Honestly, in just 3 months I have a better understanding of what I can expect and how my life can improve. It’s so much more than chiropractic care (as I used to know it). For the first time, I’m paying attention to my health in ways I never thought I would.
Thank you so much for all your help during my pregnancy. You really opened my eyes to the power of chiropractic care! And, as this was my first time using it, I was completely in awe. When I first came to you, I was in my third trimester and suffering with horrible lower back pain and my baby was breech. My midwife suggested I consult a chiropractor and fortunately I found you! Your gentle, yet effective, adjustments relieved me of the back pain, which I thought was simply an unpleasant but “normal” part of pregnancy. I now know that this… Read more “Power of chiropractic care”
I went to see Dr. Heidi for the first time recently and I was so impressed with the professionalism of the office as well as the care provided. My upper back and neck issue felt immediate relief after my visit. I have referred several of my friends and family to this office. Highly recommended!! thank you for your help with my back and neck! I’ll see you soon!
Chiropractic care allows me a natural alternative to “popping pills”. It also fits beautifully into my healthy lifestyle- and the support and encouragement I get from Dr. Heidi is second to none. Dr. Heidi has literally taken me from “ground zero” with full blown Crohn’s disease and helped me every step of the way into full remission for 1 year, 3 months.
I LOVE the CHIROPRACTIC experience @ Oak Springs!! It helps with every issue I can ever think of without having to resort to a medical doctor for a Rx.
Adjustments improve my sleeping throughout the night and help with muscle tension on the shoulders and necks! It’s been great coming here for adjustments!
I am a massage therapist and I initially went to see Dr. Ben because I was having some discomfort in my left thumb. After the first visit the pain was much better and by the third visit the pain was gone and has not reoccurred. I have had a dramatic reduction in headaches and mid-back discomfort also. I have been to chiropractors in the past without a lot of success, but Dr. Ben’s chiropractic care is holistic and I think that is the reason I have had such success.
I came in with extreme low back pain. The kind where you ask: ‘Can you fix me without touching me?’ The next morning after my first adjustment I was a new person with 90% less pain. As an added benefit I’m also getting better quality sleep. I feel well rested when I wake. I’ve also be en able to stop taking thyroid medication. Previously when I’d stopped the meds, I would experience extreme fatigue, sleep for 15 hours and still want a nap. Not anymore! I recommend Dr. Ben to everyone!
I’m Shenyn Gale, a sophomore at Stillwater Area High School, I have been a competitive swimmer for 5 years on a team called SEMS along with the Stillwater varsity swim and dive team. My story starts in February 2014 when I was playing basketball in my gym class where I was struck in the back of the head with basketball. I never lost consciousness but I did get a killer headache. I went to the nurse and was struggling to remember what all had just happened, I did not remember getting hit I just know that my hand went to… Read more “Shenyns Story”
I would have probably had surgery on my neck. Very thankfully Dr. Heidi has provided me with good exercises and good information. I love chiropractic because it saved me from being mutilated instead of treated. Dr. Heidi is a very through and caring person. Not only does she care about your physical condition, she also cares about your mental and spiritual well being. It feels like I was broken and hurting. Now after my adjustment I feel like I’m fixed and ready to tackle the next challenge.
I went the (medical) doctor for my headaches. They did CT scans, a spinal tap, I even went to an ear, nose and throat doctor thinking it might be my sinuses. Everything came back normal. They put me on medicine for my migraines. The medicine would usually take the pain away but I knew I was only masking the pain, not correcting the problem. Now that I have been seeing Dr. Ben for over a year and my headaches are pretty much gone. Now when I do get one, they are less severe and manageable. I rarely have to take… Read more “My life has completely changed”
I feel so energetic after I am adjusted. I feel like I can stretch more and I do not hurt after. I was getting very bad headaches, now I don’t. I feel like I can jump higher and am more agile. I look forward to my adjustments.
In the winter of 2017, I had a bad spill on an iced over parking lot. We were about to leave on vacation and I was very sore!! Dr. Heidi worked very hard through adjusting and working with Debra for massage and got me back up and operational in VERY short order!! Thank you sooooo much!!
Before I started Nutrition Response Testing, I was a mess. I had a lot of issues with allergies, energy, and digestion that nobody could explain. The list of symptoms went on and on… I never felt like I could get enough sleep, I never got hungry – I just felt like I would be sick if I didn’t eat, I got headaches, and every time I went into the sun I felt completely drained of energy and would need to take a nap. I barely had enough energy to get through a day, let alone a work-out. I was sick… Read more “I was a mess”
When I started, my wellness quotient was a 68, when I ended it was 111. I lost 21 pounds, my blood pressure went down, and my lung capacity went way up, all of my strength numbers went up by hundreds of pounds. I also sleep much better and have been able to ride my bike over 1,500 hundred miles this summer.
It didn’t take much, after shoveling some snow, that I felt a spasm in my back and headed back inside. The first thing I did was make a call to the chiropractor my husband goes to: Dr. Andy. I had a hard time moving around, bending, sitting for periods of time, but after my first visit with Dr. Andy, my lower back felt better. It took several more sessions and some ice packs, but my back feels much better. I know that without his adjustments, my recovery would’ve taken much longer.
I have been suffering with an ear infection for 24 days. I had tried many modalities in order to try to rectify this problem. Today I woke up with severe ear pain (It felt like it was going to break.) and a migraine headache. I called my M.D.’s office and they said that they had no openings but that they would have someone call me later. I was besides my self. The pain was excruciating! I was crying and pacing the room in pain. I felt that I had to do something. I went to see my Chiropractor, Dr Ben… Read more “Severe Ear Pain”
I was desperate, in pain, and sleep deprived when I found our chiropractors on the internet. I was immediately impressed with the professional, friendly staff and educational materials that are so available. I believe properly applied knowledge is power to be free to be all I was meant to be. Within a few adjustments I was beginning to realize that a life with little or no pain might be possible. WITHOUT drugs. Many of my back, leg and shoulder problems are the direct result of being a mother. I have three children. I had a lot of “sciatic nerve” problems… Read more “WITHOUT drugs”
Prior to coming to see Dr. Heidi, about a month ago, I had gone through two surgeries. The first was approximately 4 years ago and was an SI joint fusion on the left side. It was mildly successful for awhile and only helped to isolate my overall back issues. With 1 surgery down and the back pain still a major issue, I underwent a 2nd surgery in August of 2010. This surgery was more invasive, more restrictive, and overall was supposed to be more successful. I had a lumbar fusion of the L4-L5 and the L5-S1 discs. This kept me… Read more “Insightful Life Changing Help”
I never thought this would work, I was skeptical. But I feel so much better. I feel better than I have in over 20 years. I have more energy, sleep well and my sacroiliac pain is so gone! I have no doubts now!
“I’ve used chiropractic care at various points in my life to keep my body working through various high impact sports, such as wrestling, bull riding, and football. I had lower back pain that was stopping me from being able to fulfill work tasks. The pain was stopping me from sleeping and I couldn’t sit or lie down without discomfort. My performance at work was severely diminished, I couldn’t sleep well, I couldn’t play basketball or tennis at all, where I normally played 2-3 times per week, and I was not as cheery at home as normal.” “My back pain is… Read more “I couldn’t sleep well”
When our daughter, Chloe, was 2 months old she started projectile vomiting several times a week and was having difficulty when breastfeeding, especially on the left side. We took her to see her pediatrician who diagnosed her with Gastroesophageal Reflux and prescribed Zantac to relieve the symptoms. I didn’t feel right about giving her the medicine, but we were desperate to make her feel better. After a week we saw no real change and she didn’t like the medicine. A friend had told us that she took her baby to a chiropractor for colic and it changed her baby completely.… Read more “Baby who is struggling”
This is a note of profound gratitude to my chiropractor for helping me back to the active lifestyle I had enjoyed my entire life until about nine years ago when, after the birth of my daughter, I developed severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. The medical profession offers no cure for arthritis. The underlying cause is unknown. Therefore, most medical doctors treat the symptoms of arthritis – a lifetime of taking prescribed drugs, surgery, and similar invasive treatments are suggested. Now I avoided using medications as long as I could but within a few months after my daughter’s birth, the pain was so… Read more “No cure for arthritis”
…migraine headaches-severe, almost everyday. Went to a neurologists and they couldn’t tell me why I was getting them- just gave me more medications, but it didn’t solve the long term or root problem. Dr. Heidi was my miracle maker! My migraines were reduced to a couple a year as apposed to almost every day. I regained my focus, had less stress and was able to enjoy life again.
I have loved playing sports all of my life. In November of 2005, at the age of 12, I fell really hard playing basketball and landed on my hip. It hurt so badly that I couldn’t play basketball or any other sports that involved running. After a few months of waiting for it to heal, my mom and I started what turned out to be almost 3 years of consulting with many specialists to take away this pain. Over the course of three years, I had many tests to try to determine what was causing this pain to continue. I… Read more “It is like a miracle”
I was diagnosed with full blown progressive MS (multiple sclerosis). I was not able to walk and often I had to use a wheelchair or a cane. I had a loss of feeling and weakness of the entire left side of my body. I had suffered with constant fatigue, constant aching, insomnia and daily migraines. Between being wheelchair bound and the debilitating migraines I did not have much of a life. I had visited no less than six medical doctors who told me that I had to live with the MS because there was only so much that could be… Read more “Progressive MS”
I would like to take a moment to say thank you for your sincere interest in the health and well being of our community. When I first started coming for the care of my lower back I was initially thankful for the great relief in pain I experienced, but it wasn’t long before I began to really appreciate what your practice provides. I was initially coming three times a week to the office to aid in the healing of my lower back. Within the first week the chiropractor had x-rays done of my neck also, and found that my atlas… Read more “I had come to seriously dislike every visit to a Dr’s office”
I have lived with chronic pain for over 25 years. I was misdiagnosed with MS and Lupus only to finally be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I was tired all of the time and was never without some kind of pain. I often felt as though this is how life was going to be for the rest of my life. I resigned myself to the fact that I would never be without pain. I had trouble exercising, walking and just doing simple things like walking up and down stairs. Chronic pain took the joy out of life. Prior to seeing Dr. Ben,… Read more “Chronic Pain”
(Regarding her 3 month old son who had) “acid reflux, hiccups, trouble laying on his back, and general digestion problems. It made it hard to put him down to sleep, he cried a lot in the car and wasn’t able to get comfortable.” After 4 adjustments, “He was able to be off Prevacid (acid reflux medication) for 2 days, was able to go to sleep and be comfortable laying on his back, spit up less, and had hiccups less! (He was) Just happier and more content now. He also started sleeping 6 or 7 hours at 1 time during the… Read more “Acid Reflux”
I feel better than I have in years! I could go on for hours about the different ways that creating wellness has changed me and my life. In 15 weeks, I have lost 22 pounds and over four inches from my waist and hips. I have decreased my blood pressure and increased my strength. I lowered my cholesterol enough to get off of my medication. Creating wellness is the best thing I could do for myself!!! Thank you!!
I was having issues with stress and sleeping. Dr. Heidi suggested I try a liver detox to try to cleanse my body. I started in January for a 3-week program. The toughest part was not eating meat for 2 weeks, but I learned a lot of new recipes. During the process, I was able to get to sleep better and wake up at the time I needed to start my day. I have learned more about the foods that have been making me feel bad and removed them from my diet. Since the cleanse, I have continued most of the… Read more “A Whole New Understanding of Food”
Headaches! Really, really BAD headaches! That is the first thing that brought me to my chiropractors’ office. Not mild headaches…I’m talking nausea, vomiting and sensitivity to sound. I used to wake up in the morning, about once a month or every 3 to 5 weeks, sometimes more often and these headaches were so bad that they ruined my whole day!!! I used to take a variety of medications to combat them (or their symptoms), such as: Gravol, Advil liquid-gels, Zomig Rapimelt (Zolmitripton) and Maxalt RPD (rizatriptan). In most cases the meds didn’t even give me any relief! And then someone… Read more “Really, really BAD headaches!”
Olivia has received chiropractic adjustments since day one in the hospital. She gets checked every week and scanned regularly to find and remove stress from her little system. I believe adamantly that due to regular chiropractic adjustments, good nutrition and low stress at home, she has stayed healthy. She is 4 years old and has never had an ear infection, sinus infection or taken one ounce of medication including antibiotics or pain relievers. Don’t get me wrong, she still gets colds/coughs/fevers and had the rotovirus as a 2 year old. However, the infections are gone quickly and her immune system… Read more “Thank God for chiropractic care and for a healthy child”
I’ve learned a great deal about myself and how I can help my body restore itself naturally instead of seeking medicine to mask the pain.
Hi, my name is Lorraine. I am happy, out- going, energetic and getting more and more healthy every day. Nearly 2 months ago, I would have never anticipated the way that I feel about life now. I had taken almost every diet pill on the market, tried money exhausting exercise programs that were not really motivating. I was always tired and I had begun to feel extreme pain in my back and body. I had constant headaches for the past 10 years and had been taking up to 18 Advils per day. Carrying Advils and Motrins was a must for… Read more “I had taken almost every diet pill on the market”
Since starting chiropractic care I have been able to function at a greater level. I am healthier, have more energy – in turn, a better wife and mom.
I love chiropractic because it is a way for me to better myself without medicine.
Daniel is 4 years old and has quite a long medical background. Since Dan was 2 weeks old every September his health problems would begin. They always started the same with some rash that was unexplainable and undiagnosable as well. From there it would get worse. He would develop upper respiratory problems in which most of the time would send us to the hospital for days and sometimes weeks. We never did get any answers from the doctors, just enormous medical bills which put us in financial ruins. Just before we started taking Dan to Dr. Ben, the U of… Read more “Unexplainable and Undiagnosable”
I had persistent lower back pain that would seem to ‘turn off and turn on’ randomly. During certain periods of ‘pain on’, I could not sit for more than 5 minutes without pain. It was impossible to exercise or enjoy any activities. I took a lot of aspirin and went to a chiropractor about 4 years ago for one adjustment. The chiropractor never recommended that I continue therapy let alone any preventive work. After my first round of adjustments, I experienced a dramatic change. The pain subsided and I was able to concentrate on work and family. The real change… Read more “Prevent Back Pain”
My wife experienced a scary persistent pain in the upper neck area after a weekend of gardening, and we were concerned that this was going to require dangerous neck or back surgery to correct. I have had to experience with Chiropractic and was extremely skeptical. I was begged to see a Dr. Ben by several people that I trust, and I finally agreed. I am not going to use the word miracle for a variety of reasons, except that it is a miracle when I admit I was wrong. I was wrong! One extended session with Dr. Ben, and my… Read more “My Wife’s Pain Scare”
Before seeing Dr. Ben I was experiencing lower back pain and numbness in my right leg all the way into my foot. I also experienced lots of headaches and often suffered with heartburn. Because of my lower back pain I haven’t been able to look for work, I have gained about 20 pounds due to little or no exercise and I have been very stressed out. My pain was just really putting a damper on my life. I tried physical therapy for about three months and used a lot of pain killers, but I never got relief. Since beginning care… Read more “No Headaches”
Once I’m adjusted, I feel more energized, more open, relaxed and happy.
Dr. Heidi was my miracle maker! My migraines were reduced to a couple a year as opposed to almost every day. I regained my focus, had less stress and was able to enjoy life again.
I have had lower and mid back pain for many years, after visiting Oak Springs I am virtually pain free! its Fantastic!
