Neck Pain Success Stories

My neck and back pain was constantly painful and unbearable…

I lost work and didn’t feel like doing anything. Tried aspirin and pain killers but felt so frustrated. After starting chiropractic I feel much better and can keep busy and active with the kids. Dr. Lonnie is Great! – Cindy D. age 32, Medical Transcriptionist


The stabbing pain in my neck…

As well as the weakness in my hand and the numb fingers everyday made me feel mad and helpless. I tried stretching and heat, and Ibuprofen, but nothing else helped. After a few sessions I feel much better and can more easily lift things, turn my head and sleep. This clinic does a great job! – Nora D. age 43, Computer Operator


Almost every day it was unbearable to move…

It was difficult to work or lay down because of my lower back and neck. I had extreme stiffness after work, unhappiness, and irritability. I tried cracking my own neck which did not work and was upset and frustrated. After chiropractic care I feel more confident going to work knowing I don’t have to worry about hurting and am relieved. I can bend and twist a whole lot easier and lift my niece and nephew. Dr. Lonnie has helped me a lot and I am very thankful he is not only willing to help but he cares and he is now starting to see and help my family and friends! – Kari age 26, Bartender


Daily for three years I felt depressed…

I felt afraid and old because I could not even pick up a cereal box with my left hand. I had trouble driving my car. I missed work because of the severe pain in my upper back and neck. I couldn’t play games with my son, had trouble sleeping, was unable to enjoy any recreational activities or take care of the house. I tried Ibuprofen and Acupuncture. Another chiropractor did not continue a regular maintenance program to prevent recurrence of pain. After being adjusted by Dr. Lonnie and a maintenance program I seldom have pain and if I do it only lasts for 2 or 3 days. Dr. Lonnie is wonderful, friendly, and kind! – Marie age 51, RN


It was hard to walk and turn my head…

It felt like someone was punching me in the back and I had a sharp pain in my neck. I was so uncomfortable, felt helpless and hopeless and was getting more ornery every day. I began chiropractic care and I feel PHENOMENAL! I can move!! I am not stiff! I’m not ornery anymore. I can walk upright and turn my head full range! Dr. Lonnie is great and is very knowledgeable and helpful! Thank You! – Christina J. age 31, Aircraft Mechanic


Every year I would have a bout with severe neck pain…

This time it was like a knife stabbing me in the neck whenever I moved. I could do no reading, no computer, no gardening, no exercise, no dancing! I went to the ER, Physical Therapy, used Ibuprofen, exercises, ice, heat, and a Tens. I was desperate! After chiropractic I am ALIVE AGAIN! I can LIVE LIFE! Dr. Holmquist is a caring, talented Doctor – and very knowledgeable of nutrition. – Gail K. age 77, Retired


Every day every muscle in my neck and shoulders froze up…

The muscle spasms made the pain unbearable. I couldn’t even sleep. I tried Advil and ice packs but nothing worked. It made me feel like I got run over by a car and was hopeless. I was on workers comp and gave me a short temper with people around me. I worried I would do some serious damage to my spine in the long run. After I started with chiropractic I feel like I’m back to normal. I can sleep again and have a better attitude towards life. I can come home from work feeling great and use my arms for lifting like I could before I injured myself. Holmquist Advanced Chiropractic is a great place. They are really good on making your care as easy as possible. I’d refer them to anyone! – Guy age 19, Construction


I had daily neck popping, noises, and aches…

I didn’t want to move, so I would always do things that were not active, in turn affecting my overall health. I was always rolling my head in circles and that did not help and I thought I would just have to live with this pain. After chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Holmquist, I move much more freely. I can look back over my shoulder to see traffic easily now. I can do all moving and twisting the upper body painlessly. Dr. Holmquist is always helping me to learn new things about my health. He goes out of his way to help me find answers to my questions! – Theresa W. age 48, Homemaker


I suffered every day of my life with severe pain…

It was unbearable – burning sensations, numbness, tingling, stiffness, some grinding and cracking noises, throbbing and stabbing at me. I tried over the counter meds, prescription meds, exercise, heat, ice, rest, and about everything else I thought as possible. I was so very tired, stressed, upset, angry, weak, unable to move, and had no energy. I didn’t care about most things, work was less productive, forgetful, dropping things all the time, and cried a lot. I was worried I would not be able to work and become disabled, not be able to drive or do fun things. After I started chiropractic I have no more headaches, no more neck pain, no tightness in my chest, and no acid reflux sensations. My stress level is down. I can move my head and neck with no pain a lot further and more than before, and eat more stuff I wasn’t able to eat. Dr. Lonnie explains everything so you understand it, answers your questions, very friendly and courteous and kind. A very cool person. – Terry S. age 47, Nursing Assistant


I experienced moderate neck pain…

I had stiffness and crunching all the time for years. I had limited motion in turning my head. I had tried medication but that did not work. After chiropractic care I am free of pain in my neck and have full motion. Dr. Lonnie is great! – Ann age 67, Retired


After a neck injury I couldn’t lift much of anything…

I couldn’t even lift my children. I had stabbing, sharp pain daily. Tylenol and exercising did nothing and left me frustrated. I found Dr. Lonnie very caring, kind, helpful, and also knowledgeable. I can now move and turn my head easily again. I can carry my children and lift with no problems. I rarely have pain, so I feel thankful. – Jackie S. age 38, Beauty Consultant


For three years I suffered with back, shoulder, and neck pain…

I had no sleep for days, weeks, weight loss, no energy at all, run down, foggy thinking. I tried drugs and three other chiropractors. I felt like I was ready for a wheel chair. I could do no work at all, was tired, later, lazy, worn out. After I started with chiropractic with Dr. Lonnie I can sleep, sit straight, cook, wash, fix-it, clean-it, enjoy it, jelling as they say! I can Live. This clinic is highly advanced & effective. – Brian F. age 41, no occupation given


I had almost constant neck & back pain…

I also had shoulder stiffness for decades. It was so painful to even turn my head. I was very cranky with my kids & husband. Had trouble sleeping, always uncomfortable. I tried medication – over the counter and prescription. When nothing worked I was depressed and cranky. After chiropractic I sleep like a baby. I’m much more active, I stand up much straighter. This is a very comfortable office with knowledgeable doctor. I’m very pleased with treatments. – Debra H. age 44, Domestic Engineer


For 25 years my back and neck hurt daily…

It was dragging me down, causing depression and insomnia. I tried weight loss and exercise, but could find nothing that worked and felt more depressed. After starting chiropractic care I feel I am getting better. Morning stiffness is disappearing, almost young again! My neck actually turns both directions and I can bend over. Dr. Lonnie is Great! Very informative on not only chiropractic, but also general health care. – Diane R. age 52, Retired
