Meredith - Pregnancy When Meridith walked into Paramount Health she had been dealing with severe neck pain daily, bad headaches, migraines, back pain, moderate anxiety, and her sleep was getting worse. This had been going on for years. She went to a primary care physician for her anxiety and got massages for her pain. She had x-rays taken when she started care and found that her neck had lost its curve and was down to 2 degrees (when it should be closer to 34-43 degrees). When this curve is lost it puts a lot of pressure on the spinal cord and creates a lot of pressure on the nerves that exit. This can lead to many health issues. Getting this curve corrected allows the body to function better. Meridith was unsure about chiropractic care helping because it hadn't previously. But after being referred in by her mom and brother she started care. Once she got under care she started feeling the results and her pain started to disappear and she started taking less medication! When Meridith walked into Paramount Health she didn't know it but she was going to be a mom to a beautiful baby girl. However she feels that the care helped her to have a very "easy" pregnancy and she is excited to see how she feels postpartum. She reported that the office is friendly, welcoming, and easy going. She constantly recommends chiropractic care to others. Meridith said, "I have constantly tried to be more holistic about my own health over the last few years. I work in the medical field and I see the long term effects of pain and use of medications (chemicals). This is something I am so glad I did, it truly changed my life and I am excited to bring my baby here and continue care postpartum. "4/22/2022
Elizabeth - Auto Accident After a car accident, Elizabeth was suffering from neck pain, low back pain, headaches, and pain in her left leg. All of this pain bothered her for over two years. "I had purchased a cane to walk with, people would stop me in the store to ask if I was ok even though I thought I was hiding the pain." She had tried a different chiropractor in the past, and also had to resort to ibuprofen daily. None of these solutions would help for very long. She was surprised when she came to Paramount Health. She reported that she had doubts and, "I knew it would help lower my pain but not this much." She was intrigued but skeptical but was willing to try anything other than pills. Six months into care, her pain decreased greatly and she rarely uses her cane anymore. She says she would recommend coming here as a first choice. She states, "I have had better improvement here than from traditional chiropractors. I feel that without the typical yanking, pulling, and pushing my body responds a whole lot better to the adjustments."4/22/2022
Derek- Back pain Before coming to Paramount Health, Derek was convinced he would need surgery to get relief from his bulged discs, severe back pain, sciatic pain, and headaches. This pain had been so severe and been taking place for so many years that he was seeking help in a variety of places. He had seen a physical therapist that said they couldn't help him. He also saw orthopedists that couldn't help and told him he would need surgery if he wanted to be pain free. The pain would always come back after going to other chiropractors. He was even given many medications including pain killers, muscle relaxers, nerve blockers and many different over the counter medications. After all of this Derek was convinced he needed surgery. He heard great things from his wife and was excited, interested and hopeful that Dr. John could help him. He reported, "I noticed a huge change after the first couple of months. I do physical labor and it has been a lot easier." When asked if he would recommend chiropractic care to others, he said, "Yes! I tell everyone I know how life changing it is." Derek brings his wife into Paramount for her headaches, and his son for his anxiety, Tourette's and asthma.4/22/2022
Daniel - Sciatica Daniel came into Paramount Health with sciatic nerve pain and scoliosis. His sciatic pain was so severe some days that he couldn't put weight on his leg. He had been to his primary doctor and was taking Flexeril, but decided to try chiropractic care. After coming to Paramount Health Chiropractic Daniel understood that his spinal cord controls everything within his body, the nerves that exit from your lower spine go down into your hips, down your legs all the way to your feet. When there are misalignments in the lower spine they can put pressure on the nerves that exit which can lead to pain, discomfort in the sciatic nerve. He had his doubts about it but improved 30% within a month of care. Daniel continues to be seen and is seeing improvement in his health every month! With every adjustment Daniel's brain is able to communicate better with his body and his body is functioning better upon every visit! His wife also comes in for her neck and hips. His first impressions of Paramount were excellent. He reports, " Everyone is always happy." He says chiropractic has helped him and that he would recommend it to others.4/22/2022
Austin - Neck Pain Austin had been suffering from neck pain for months before arriving at Paramount Health. He said, "On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the worst, I would say the pain was an 8." He found himself resorting to routinely taking Tylenol and ibuprofen to help with the discomfort that he found himself having often. After talking with his mom, who is under care for her migraines, he knew that chiropractic care would help him. Before talking to her, he didn't know about everything that chiropractic adjustments can help. Since starting treatment his neck pain has almost completely gone away. After leaving Paramount Health on his first visit Austin was also made aware that correcting his issues now that he is younger will save him a lot of time, pain, and problems in the future. When we are able to see young people we know that we are setting them up for a future of functioning optimally. It is a great joy to know that their future health is being vastly improved. He reports, "I thought the office was very clean and the staff and doctor were all very kind and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Paramount Health Chiropractic."4/22/2022
Tammie - Shoulder pain Tammie came into Paramount Health with pain in her shoulder that made it hard to raise her arm. She said, "On a scale from 1-10 it could get up to a 10 when it is at its worst." This had been going on for months for Tammie and she was unable to have any type of release. After being under care at Paramount Health she has more mobility and is able to lift her arm again. She is not the only one in her family receiving care. She decided to share the gift of health with her children, husband, and mother. Her kids did not come in due to aches and pains but rather Tammie understanding that the body functions best without subluxations and wanting to provide her kids with the best health outcomes. By correcting their subluxations at a young age their bodies are able to grow and develop optimally and they will be much healthier in the long run. She reports, "Dr. John is great and his staff is incredible to say the least." She finds that her time in the office is, "relaxing and definitely helps with so many problems!"4/22/2022
Taylor - Migraines Taylor came to Paramount Health with daily headaches and weekly migraines, as well as digestive issues and severe depression and anxiety. Some days she couldn't get out of bed and would miss class and work. She was taking many medications including ibuprofen, CBD, Tylenol, Excedrin, Advil, Imodium, Pepto, and more. She didn't know if chiropractic would work for her. She had a horrible experience getting manually adjusted when she was younger. Coming to Paramount Health immediately gave her hope.

Symptom Relief and Baby on Board Before coming to Paramount Health, Amy had been to chiropractors that used manual adjustments, but this started bothering her back and neck more and caused daily headaches. She had been dealing with lower back pain ever since an injury when she was 13 years old. This pain became so severe that Amy would have to take Motrin and Flexeril almost every day and had stopped working out due to the pain. She was also resorting to over the counter medication, however this was causing concerns with her blood pressure. Without many options she sought out her PCP and focused on treating symptoms.
She has had minimal back, shoulder, and neck pain since being under care. She says, "I totally recommend it to help fix the underlying problem not just mask it with pain medications." She reports that she has only experienced minimal back pain and neck/shoulder pain throughout her pregnancy and with her postpartum recovery from a C-Section.
Chiropractic is now a whole family affair for Amy, she finally convinced her stubborn husband to be seen for his daily back pain, and headaches. He has been able to greatly reduce his over the counter medications! "My husband and I actually got pregnant after our first year of treatment. We weren't expecting it as we had not been successful before that." Amy and her husband also got their son adjusted shortly after birth, and have reported that he is less fussy, gassy, and is better overall after his adjustments.

A New Kind of Chiropractic- My Body Can Heal
Vesta had not been a stranger to chiropractic, two years prior to seeing Dr. John she had been under care at another office for nearly 20 years prior to that office moving. After her two year break she was back to having daily migraines, lower back pain, along with discomfort in her pelvis and shoulders as well. None of these issues were new to her, she had been expiring them for many years. Vesta reported that due to this she was taking aspirin daily and Aleve as needed.
Vesta's first impressions were that "Dr. John and his wonderful office staff showed a different kind of chiropractic and I now know I can heal instead of just relieving the pain." After Vesta's first month of adjustments her migraines had lessened to one or two a month, her low back pain became minimal. Vesta reported after one year of treatment and adjustments she is now migraine free and her lower back pain are managed with her visits.
Vesta reports, "This is a wonderful place - great atmosphere- greeted with hellos and smiles at every visit from the time you walk in and check in to seeing Dr. John. Everyone on the staff greets you. Your wait time is minimal."

He would absolutely recommend chiropractic to others who are experiencing pain.

She attempted to resolve this pain by seeing a neurologist but got no results.
Lisa wasn't sure if chiropractic would help her initially but her only solution at that time was to take 800 mg of Ibuprofen. Lisa came to Paramount Health after being referred in by her brother, she reported that she felt good after her first visit and began feeling a lot better during her visits following. She says, "Coming to this chiropractor has helped a lot with being able to be comfortable and not have to worry about leaving with any kind of pain or headache."

Headaches 80% of the time for 4 years gone within a month Michelle came to Paramount Health Chiropractic because she was suffering from a few different health concerns. She was experiencing severe headaches and extreme low back pain. While she was experiencing such pain, she was taking many different pain medications to make it through the day. When she first visited Paramount Health she was experiencing chronic headaches since the birth of her daughter many years prior. As Michelle expected, healing couldn't happen overnight so she gave her body time and got great relief from what she thought was her new normal.
After dealing with all that pain for many years and taking many medications to alleviate the pain, Michelle was ready for a change. Having seen a chiropractor and neurologist before, and was relying on medications to help her. After a few weeks of adjustments, she was amazed at the results that she was already seeing.

No Longer Allergic to Housework Marlena was first introduced to Dr. John and the Paramount Health team at a community expo. She had previously had a poor experience at a chiropractic office after a car accident so she was hesitant to give Dr. John a chance to help her. "Dr. John asked us to give him a chance as he does not "crack" the bones." Marlena decided to take a leap of faith. Prior to her healing Marlena had struggled with severe swelling of her hands that began in her early 20's. It had gotten to the point that she had to give up her art- drawing and painting. Even her dancing classes and basic house chores resulted in her hands swelling. This had gone on for about 10 years. This swelling stopped her from doing many of the activities that involved her hands. "Cleaning my house, my hands would double in size. I joke and say I'm allergic to house work." Marlena had consulted her OBGYN after it was noticed that her hands had been swelling. She was then referred to a doctor for a carpal tunnel evaluation where she tried hand braces but that did not help.
Marlena came to her first appointment at Paramount Health and joined Dr. John for a tour, open questions and was introduced to chiropractic like a college seminar. "I was not obligated to continue on but wanted to try it as he said if he cannot improve my condition he would be happy to give me a referral to another doctor... During my first year and a half I started to notice less swelling. This was for sure a gradual process, but I also was getting less migraines that I originally did not come in for."
Marlena is not the only member of her family that has experienced great results, her cousin's husband was seen due to an injury at work and is now walking again and no longer needs a walker.
When asking Marlena about her experience in the office she reports, "All the staff make you feel like family. They even allow my two younger children to come along as some medical officer may prefer otherwise. The office is always clean and seasonal/theme decorated. My family enjoys each and every visit. They have been amazing and even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic. I can now draw again, do gardening and continue handed movements for dance, and am no longer allergic to housework!"
