Megan is a beloved patient of ours here at Chiropractic Wellness Center. Her story is one we could not wait to share with you! She was diagnosed with cancer and underwent chemotherapy. We have been privileged enough to help her through the trying journey she has endured. When Megan was in Houston, Texas visiting MD Anderson Cancer Center, she met a fellow patient who shared with her how acupuncture had been helping her dramatically during her own chemotherapy journey. That’s when Megan got back to St. Louis and contacted Chiropractic Wellness Center to get started with acupuncture treatments.
The main reason Megan was seeking acupuncture was to find relief for her bone and teeth pain she was experiencing, and especially her decrease in energy. She began to regularly visit and saw outstanding results! “It has helped me feel better overall. It has brought up my energy levels and made chemotherapy bareable. I have experienced next to no bone pain during my treatment. Acupuncture took care of the tooth sensitivity I developed almost immediately.” We feel privileged here at CWC to be able to help Megan and bring relief and comfort to her life while battling cancer. “Everyone is so nice and caring! They are each willing to do anything that could possibly help, and they never rush you during your appointment. You can tell that they truly care about their patients.” It brings us all the happiness in the world to tell you Megan is currently done with all her chemotherapy treatments and is cancer free! Way to go Megan!
Mason is one of our beloved little patients here at CWC and his story is one too amazing not to share! Mason’s Mom, Natalie, brought him in to see us after struggling to find the appropriate treatment for her son. Mason had bowing legs between the age of 9 months and 12 months. It was so severe, Natalie even took him to see an orthopedic surgeon in hopes of finding the perfect treatment for her baby boy. Because of Mason’s bowed legs, he fell a lot, was clumsy, and often suffered with pain. His feet turned in and his gait was off as well. That’s a lot to deal with for a busy one year old who has toys to play with! One of Natalie’s coworkers suggested she bring Mason to see us here at Chiropractic Wellness Center. Although she was leery to visit a chiropractor because she had never been before, she decided to give it a shot. The positive results she had seen from her coworker’s son receiving chiropractic care from us also prompted her to swing by for a visit.
“The results were overwhelmingly good. After a few months, my son’s legs straightened, he became less clumsy, his gait improved, his feet began facing forward; we ultimately avoided leg braces and Mason is walking, running and pain free!” We are more than pleased to hear Natalie’s satisfaction with the care her son received. As a first time mom, she was scared and paranoid about her little one. We were able to put her mind at ease as Dr. Lofquist worked with Mason to help him walk and stand properly.
Caitlin came in to see us at CWC due to frequent headaches. She was experiencing these headaches about three to four times a week, and seven times a week at the very worst! Ouch! Headaches affect millions of people across America. In fact, people complain about headaches more than any other medical ailment. “I was tired of putting medicine into my body to mask the pain.”
Caitlin wanted to get to the root of the problem and fix it, which is something we should all strive to do when dealing with our health and wellness. That’s where we come in. Caitlin had some friends who have had success with chiropractic adjustments, so she thought she would try it out. “The first two weeks [of treatment] I got one or two headaches. That was 12 weeks ago, and for the past 10 weeks I have been headache free!”
We are so happy for Caitlin and her success! We strive to make success stories out of every patient that walks through our door, and Caitlin is a perfect example of that! Let us help you improve your quality of life on your journey to wellness.
Aaron and Kylene Montgomery brought their son, Lewis, in to see us here at Chiropractic Wellness Center after Lewis was diagnosed with torticollis. Torticollis is an abnormal, asymmetrical head or neck position and can be relatively common in infants. After bringing Lewis to physical therapy, Mr. and Mrs. Montgomery saw no improvement in Lewis’ condition. In fact, Lewis unfortunately seemed to be a little more sore than usual.
“We ran into Dr. Lorie at a volleyball event actually, and they suggested that we come have him checked out. It was fantastic, we immediately started seeing results!” Lewis was more than OK with coming to see the Doctors here at CWC. He actually loved coming to recieve treatment! We are all more than happy to report Lewis has overcome his condition and is doing great! “It’s been a fantastic experience and both Kylene and I have also been adjusted, and it makes us feel better. We love coming out here. We definitely recommend them!”
