Customer Testimonials for Clayton Heights Chiropractic

Some testimonials from the valued patients at our clinic.

A little history

I have lived with muscular dystrophy my whole life and over the last decade have progressed to the point where I had very little strength left in my legs and was beginning to experience trouble with basic ‘walking’. But one learns to alter their lives to deal with such. However, then came the unexpected, a bad fall, multiple fractures to hip and femur leaving me with two surgeries, rod, pins and having  lost even more of what little strength I had left, with an added problem of a leg length discrepancy (which my surgeon assured me was not my ‘leg lengths’). I found myself suffering with balance issues, had very tight and painful calves, allodynia-like pain to manipulation of my legs and found I was having major pain in my hip/thigh from the surgery. I was even having troubles getting in and out of bed and could not lie on my back for more than a few minutes because of low back pain, and found I was very dependent on a walker for stability. I was pretty much a mess.

Not knowing where to turn for help, my niece got me connected with Dr. Hogan for an assessment.

I saw Dr. Hogan pretty much three times a week for several months. I did not understand his plan of action but I did not need to, I only needed to put my trust in him & it paid off. I experienced gains, relapses and I had periods of doubt, but over time, I was seeing more and more results coming in for treatments less and less.

Dr. Hogan knew what treatment to provide. I am at a point of just slight leg length discrepancy, hence greatly reducing my balance issues where I no longer rely on my walker for stability. My thigh pain is diminishing as well as the tightness in my calves and the allodynia symptoms. I no longer struggle to get in and out of bed and it actually feels good to lie on my back now.

I have reached a point where I receive a treatment roughly once every three weeks now and I owe it all to Dr. Hogan. I put my trust in his expertise and am so glad that I did. In my opinion Dr. Hogan is amazing, knows his field and is very professional. I would not hesitate to refer anyone to him.

Dr. Hogan: Thanks so much for all your ongoing help!

Please tell us about your experiences here at Clayton Heights Chiropractic and how it has made a positive difference in your life:

The positive difference in my life has been extreme. I have a fairly long list of health issues to deal with. Upper and Lower back, Ruptured C6-C7 plus damage at C4 thru to C6, severe headaches, DPN, High Stress – a few more.

We strive to see all our patients as wellness based patients. How has the gift of wellness positively affected your life?

In many ways. My health has improved greatly. It is an ongoing process and massage has proved to be the best route to go for me.

If you first came to our office as the result of an injury, how have your treatments at CHC helped you to get back to normal?

In my case I don’t think it can be said I will ever get “back to normal”. The best I hope for is some relief and to hold  back the more intense problems as much as possible. Please understand that I have tried many different treatments over the years and have found massage to be the best solution by far. If not for your RMT I would be in much worse shape both physically and mentally. Chronic pain, day after day after day can drive a person to places beyond the point of caring. It is horrible to experience and horrible for one’s family to see. I am very fortunate to be as close to “normal” as I am. I have no complaints.

Do you have any suggestions or are there and services or products you would like to see added to our office to help us serve you better?

Can’t say I do. I like clean, functional offices and yours certainly fits that. It has a comfortable air about it, especially in the waiting area which I also like.

Any additional comments:

Only that I have always felt welcome and comfortable when I go to CHC. All the staff are welcoming and helpful. I am a bit cautious, although some (like my wife and my Doctor) might say I’m a pain in the ass, about letting anyone close to my injury points. A mistake can cause me a great deal of pain over an extended period of time.  I have come to learn to trust my RMT completely and can relax with the knowledge that I am being treated by one of the very best. That piece of mind alone is worth the price of admission.

Thank you for this opportunity to add my comments. I appreciate the chance to provide my thoughts.

Kind Regards

Chandler.

Please tell us about your experience here at Clayton Heights Chiropractic and how it has made a positive difference in your life:

Through chiropractic care from Dr. Hogan, the pain I was experiencing has been greatly reduced and the various limitations of mobility I had have been restored back to normal.

We strive to see all of our patients as wellness based patients. How has the gift of wellness positively affected your life?

I now have my everyday routines without pain.  I’m doing these routines as I normally would instead of finding a new way to do things with the limited capacities that I had.

If you first came to our office as the result of an injury, how have your treatments at Clayton Heights Chiropractic helped you to get back to normal?

By relieving my pains and giving me back my full range of motion.

Additional Comments:

Before coming to Dr. Hogan I had met with a plastic surgeon to set a date for surgery on my wrist to relieve my pain and range of motion issues. Only a few visits with Dr. Hogan under his chiropractic care, I was on the road to recovery. I later cancelled my wrist surgery and have been successfully maintaining my health with regular monthly visits to his office.

Thank You Dr. Hogan.
