"Headache relief is well....a relief!"
For the past ten years or so I have suffered from headaches, migraines and tension headaches alike. They range from an annoying pain behind my eyes to extreme sensitivity to light, sounds and smells, nausea and pounding pain all over my head. Some last a few hours and some last for days----disrupting my sleep, work and social life. I would chalk them up to eating something wrong, not getting enough sleep, hormones, stress---but never really addressed the problem and relied on over-the-counter pain medications. Until my chiropractic treatments, I never went more than a week without some degree of headache.
I started getting awful neck pain and decided to see a chiropractor for the first time. I was very impressed with Dr. Crane from the first visit. He took the time to really explain how the spine works and how it effects the whole body. When he showed me my x-rays, I was shocked to see such results for someone as young as myself. My neck was more in a straight line than a curve and it was effecting my spine, shoulders, legs and whole body. He explained that my neck was probably the main cause of my headaches.
Dr. Crane has truly changed my life. I have gone two weeks without a headache---an accomplishment that I cannot recall in memory. But besides the pain and headache relief, there is an overall wellness that is hard to describe. My general mood has improved, along with my sleep and energy. I don't think a person realizes how one thing being out of alignment can effect the whole body.
Dr. Crane has also taught me stretches, exercises and correct postures for work, to help maintain my health and wellness. I am looking forward to living my life with less headaches!

"I traded my cane for a golf club!"
After 30 years of mechanical work, including lifting engines and performing lots of stressful activities on my back, I started to have weakness and pain in my back. The last ten years I've been working at Pacific Steel and constantly moving heavy items. I tried modifying my techniques of moving and lifting, but the accumulative damages over the years had caught up with me. I developed numbness in my right leg and sharp low back pain. It was so dibilatating that it took weeks of rest at a time to get back on my feet. Putting on my socks and shoes or even sitting for very long was very painful! I couldn't do much of anything physical, including my favorite game of golf. The pain got to the point that I had to use a cane to walk for a few weeks. At that point I decided to go to Dr. Crane, because despite guarding my back and prolonged rest, there was little to no relief. After 5 treatments, I didn't need the cane anymore and after a treatment program I was pain free and back to golfing 18 holes and walking the full course. I could walk staighter, taller and do the things that I love to do!

"I shouldn't be in pain at 24 years old"
I have had trouble with my lower back since high school. It would come and go and most of the time I was fine. But as I got older it got worse and my back hurt more often. I started to go to a chiropractor only when my back was hurting and I would only get treated once. I thought that would solve my back problems, but it didn't. It came to a point that I couldn't really play basketball anymore. I have always liked playing ball with the "guys" and in 2008 I stopped playing because I was afraid of severely hurting my back. If I did play, I made sure I wasn't getting into any situations where a guy could bump against me (like rebounding). When I started a treatment program with Dr. Crane it made a world of difference. I started playing basketball about a month after I started regularly seeing the doctor. It was very refreshing to be able to get in there and rebound and shove around with the guys again! I will continue to see Dr. Crane to stay on top of my back problems; I would rather take the preventative approach than to see myself in irreversable pain years down the road.

"I no longer have numbness in my leg..."
My life changed in June 2008 after my initial exam and chiropractic adjustment. I learned that I could live a life without constant pain or medical surgical procedures. For years I have endured pain at work and home, unable to climb stairs or walk half a block without extreme pain. Dr. Crane's chiropractic approach to wellness has been a welcome change. I'm now able to climb stairs, shop in the mall and sleep at night without drugs. I had numbness in one leg that I no longer have. I suffer from Spondylolisthesis, which is a bone in my spine sliding forward and irritating nerves, causing the pain to go into my hip. This pain is treated and controlled by my regular appointments. I would recommend that anyone living with pain and allowing it to rule your life to get the initial exam and find out if Dr. Crane can help you like he has helped me. I can now enjoy my husband, grandkids, and job once again!
"I prefer the natural approach to restoring my physical health "
I was lifting a heavy object and injured my wrist. After consulting a physician and being diagnosed with tendonitis, the pain became more intense. I was wearing a brace and was soon to have a cortisone shot to relieve the pain. I visited Dr. Crane who directed me to take off the brace and replace it with regular adjustments to my wrist, elbow, and hand. The pain relief each treatment provided was exceptional. After several sessions I regained full range of motion, strength and flexibility. Best of all, no shot was required. I highly recommend Dr. Crane to friends and family on a regular basis for relief of their aches and pains. The natural approach to restoring physical health is much preferred to other options.
