Katie's Story

Written By Chiropractic Health and Wellness on April 3, 2014

When I started working at my current company, I started looking for a chiropractor closer to the office.  Dr. Tivy presented a wellness “lunch and learn” at my company.  I liked her personality and humor and respected her ability to talk to a group of strangers!  At the time, I was having frequent pain and migraines emanating from my jaw.  After an examination and X-rays, Dr. Tivy put together a treatment plan for me which was very effective!  I had adjustments on my jaw and massage on the muscles connected to the jaw a few times a week to start, then I went to twice a week and then once a week.  After a couple months, the pain and migraines were gone.  

Besides my jaw, Dr. Tivy adjusts my neck, upper back, lower back, knee, ankle and even wrist as needed.  I am a believer in regular wellness visits (that is how I view them).  I know I would not be able to as active (traveling, hiking, snowshoeing and even take long walks) without the support of the team at Chiropractic Health and Wellness.  I have received excellent care from everyone there - the doctors, the therapeutic assistants, office staff and even the interns! 

I also appreciate the fact Dr. Tivy will refer patients to other doctors if she thinks there is an issue beyond your scope as a chiropractor.  I have had issues with my knee since I was a teenager.  Early on, I had seen a Sports Doctor/orthopedist that could not find anything wrong with my knee and wanted to do exploratory surgery.  I would not allow that so he prescribed pain pills and that was it.  Over the years, chiropractors were able to provide relief with adjustments, stem and massage when my knee needs it.  A few months ago, I had a particularly rough patch where my knee and I was not seeing improvement after a few weeks of care from Dr. Tivy.  She encouraged me to consult an Orthopedist which I was very reluctant to do. However, because I do trust and respect her, I did consult an Orthopedist who found bone spurs on both my tibias!  After cortisone shots in my secondary knee joints, that pain is gone.  

I highly recommend Dr. Tivy and Chiropractic Health and Wellness.  They are a fabulous team who are passionate about helping people obtain the highest level of wellness possible. 

Thank you, all, for your concerted efforts to improving my health!
