I started at CLC 4 years ago when we were struggling to get pregnant with our first. We had been trying to get pregnant for 9 months before beginning care; we were starting to explore different infertility options. I knew you guys specialized in pediatrics and fertility so I decided to come here!
After 3 months of care at CLC, I went to my OB for an exam to see what the next steps would be in our fertility journey and to our pleasant surprise, we found out we were pregnant and did not have to explore other options!! We have since had 2 boys!
Walking through infertility was defeating and frustrating, the doctors were telling us we were a healthy couple and nothing was wrong, but we still weren’t able to get pregnant, I knew something was missing and that missing piece for me was neurologically based chiropractic care. The neurological scans I had done on my first visit were able to pinpoint the stress on my nervous system that was contributing to my hormone imbalances and fertility challenges. When I saw the scans, I knew I was in the right place.
After beginning care, not only did we get pregnant, but I also experienced many other benefits. I didn’t have the re-occurring pain or discomfort that I used to. After having children, I learned about “the mom spot” between the shoulder blades you talk about, and it has been very manageable with our families consistent weekly care.
I had been going to another chiropractor before coming to CLC, but the adjustments were the exact same every time and I wasn’t seeing the changes I wanted to, I wasn’t getting relief and would often times even feel worse. The care I receive here is so different, it’s specific to what was going on with MY body, the adjustments are different each time. You base your care recommendations off of neurological scans that show how your system is functioning internally, rather than a X-ray that was taken 2 years ago.
My entire family gets weekly adjustments now. It makes me feel great and I know it is helping my kids be as healthy as they can be. When my second was born, he had a very abnormal head shape. He started a week after he was born and within a few adjustments his head shape was completely different, when we take him to the doctor they always comment on how symmetrical and perfect his head is! I didn’t even know that chiropractic could help with the shape of babies’ heads until I started coming here and saw the results first hand! If they ever get constipated, adjustments help almost immediately to get their bowel movements going again.
We love the family atmosphere here and all the health and healing being apart of CLC has brought to our family.
“I started care at CLC to address my hormone imbalances. I had been walking through the difficult journey of recurrent miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies. We found out that I had a benign tumor on my ovary that was a contributing factor. All the doctors I had seen so far were just taking a “watch and wait” approach. It was really frustrating and devastating as we knew it was contributing to the loss of several pregnancies.
Once I started getting adjusted I was able to get pregnant within 1 month! That was the first time I was able to sustain a pregnancy in a couple of years. We got an ultrasound right away because of my history, and we were shocked to see that the tumor I had on my ovary for over 2 years was gone. The last time we had it evaluated on ultrasound was in January before starting care; the mass was 2 cm big and hadn’t changed in size for 2 years. I started care at CLC in March of that same year and by April my tumor was gone and I was pregnant!
We gave birth to Olivia in December; she was our 1st of 5 children who was adjusted as an infant, literally hours after she was born! Her growth and development journey has been vastly different from our other kids who did not receive chiropractic care until they were older (more on their chiropractic stories below!). Olivia is by far our healthiest child. She has very advanced speech compared to my other kids; at 2 years old she is talking in full sentences and speaks very clearly, whereas some of my other children were non-verbal at the age of two and had major speech challenges. Olivia is also more advanced in her gross-motor skills and is much more emotionally stable than my other kids. She doesn’t have anxiety like her siblings did. She is outgoing and doesn’t let fear intervene with how she interacts with people.
Before beginning care at CLC, my older kids were struggling with anxiety, OCD, behavioral challenges, major sensory issues, and major speech challenges… the difference you had to offer was getting to the root of the problem.
My oldest daughter wasn’t able to feel parts of her body and her bones were collapsing. Once she started getting adjusted, she was able to feel parts of her body that she was never able to before and her bones have been able to start evening out more. I wish we would have known about chiropractic sooner for her.
I’ve seen tremendous improvements with all my older kids in terms of anxiety, OCD, and behavioral issues after beginning care. Some of my kids were non-verbal up until 2 and we had to get other interventions involved. Once we began chiropractic care, their speech and language development rapidly started excelling and they were able to get caught up to the appropriate level. Our only child who has never experienced any of these challenges is Olivia who has been adjusted since literally a few hours old.
Our entire family, my 5 kids, myself and my husband are all under weekly chiropractic care. Our entire household environment is much more calm now; before coming here we were kind of at a loss of what to do for everyone’s health issues. We were seeking care from other holistic health care practitioners at the time, and what we found was that once we started chiropractic care, all those other things we were working on started getting better. It was like chiropractic was the missing link to connect all those other practices we were trying like PT, OT, and different supplements. Our nervous systems were finally calm enough to actually integrate all the other changes and protocols we were doing.
We look at health totally different now, we are seeing it through a new lens. We don’t live in fear about any chronic health issues that may come along, because we have now been equipped with a lot more tools and knowledge because of chiropractic; how our body’s work and how our bodies heal. Rather than suppressing our body from doing what it was designed and created to do, we’ve opened up a whole new world on how to actually support our bodies as it navigates different symptoms and stressors.”
“I started chiropractic care due to struggling with fertility issues. It became an issue when I was under a lot of stress, had a drop in my weight, and no longer continued taking my birth control. I went a little over a year without a period. This issue impacted me at a mental and physical level, as I wanted to start a family right after my wedding in January. It also impacted my husband, as my emotions were up and down, which seemed to put a lot of stress and concern on him. It also impacted close family and friends as they knew I was struggling, and would give anything to become a mom. I felt that my work was impacted due to feeling stressed and worried that my dream of becoming a mom was not in my near future.
Before starting care I was very active, and lived to workout, shortly after starting care I had to make adjustments to my daily routine and accept some physical changes that were happening to my body in order to reach my ultimate goal of becoming a mom. With the care from Congruent Life I started realize a whole new meaning of health and wellness. I did not try a lot of other care options, but my husband and I were on the path to start looking at additional options before I started chiropractic care.
I am now near the end of my second trimester! This is a huge milestone for my family since we started care in hope of being able to have a healthy and successful pregnancy. I have also noticed a positive change in my sleep and stress levels.
Dr. Mike and the team at Congruent Life have been nothing, but amazing. Dr. Mike has been extremely helpful, and has always taken the time to make sure I fully understood my treatment and the care that he has provided. The team at Congruent Life was very welcoming when I first started care with them. The team at Congruent Life always show they care and are working to provide each other their patients with the best care possible, and the care that each individual needs.”
“My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for 7-8 months and had heard you guys had been successful with helping couples with this. Going through infertility and not knowing or understanding why was a really hard season to walk through. We felt like we were just grasping for answers, but weren’t finding any… until we came here.
I also was having shoulder and neck pain that I had been struggling with since highschool (10+ yrs). I had tried several different types of treatments to help with this, some were successful and some were not, but even the treatments that seemed to help me only gave temporary relief, nothing was ever successful in helping me long term which was really frustrating.
This was at least my 3rd or 4th chiropractic clinic I had been to. No one had ever done the neurological scans to pinpoint or explain where the hidden stress was at in my body and what that was leading to in terms of my health and overall function. I would just come in, get adjusted, and leave. Nothing was ever explained to me. As a client, I wasn’t informed of what was actually going on in my body. Everything about CLC is so different. One of the best things about this place is how much you explain everything, from doing the scans to after each adjustment, I always feel like I’m fully informed about what is going on in my body, how things are functioning, and the changes that are happening throughout care as I began to heal. This is by far the best results I’ve ever received from chiropractic, it’s not even comparative to the care I’ve received through other clinics.
My life has changed so much since beginning care here. As we continued to pursue getting pregnant, we were fully informed every step of the way. We were given so much information on things we could be doing both inside and outside of the office to aid in the process. We now had so many tools in our pockets as we walked through this journey. We were no longer left with unanswered questions, we were heard here, we were empowered here, we were healed here… and now we are pregnant!
My shoulder and neck pain is also gone completely! I was having this neck and back pain on a daily basis for 10+ years and it’s GONE! I’m a teacher so I walk and sit a lot, the pain would sometimes interfere with how much of myself I could fully give to my students; without this constant pain I am able to give my full attention to my students.
I’m at a point in my health journey where I am now proactive. I’m not just constantly reacting to being in pain. My health has been restored and it’s important to me to make chiropractic apart of my weekly lifestyle so my body can continue to feel and function at its best. I feel fully informed about my body. Having nervous system and spine health isn’t just a one and done thing, I’ve learned it needs continuous attention because of the everyday stressors of life that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Long story short, I just feel so much better when I come and am so thankful I began care here!”
“I initially came to Congruent because I was having migraines beyond belief; they paralyzed me to the point I couldn’t get up and do daily functions. They were so bad ibuprofen wouldn’t touch them. I also had very shakey hands and my weight fluctuated a lot. I was experiencing extreme fatigue and had a lot of brain fog. My menstrual cramps were unbearable and I had a very sluggish digestive system.
I didn’t want to feel like this forever. I just wanted a day to wake up and not wonder if I’m gonna feel like crude; not wonder if I’m going to get a migraine; not be hesitant to show someone a picture on my phone because my hands are shaking so bad. I had been struggling with all of this stuff for about a year and I just wanted to feel GOOD again.
I don’t love going to the doctor, for my whole life it’s never been my first resort. I hated the idea of going on any type of migraine medication. I was at a loss of what to do. I knew I had to try CLC first. I finally pulled the trigger and started care here; it’s helped me with every single symptom that I came in with.
CLC got to the root cause. You found out what the real problem was, where as other places would have just masked the issues with medications and prescriptions. When I saw all the stress on my neurological scans at my first appointment, I was actually relieved that everything I was experiencing wasn’t just in my head, I could see it right there on paper.
You can tell you guys genuinely care about your patients; I feel so comfortable here. I have never felt comfortable at a doctor’s office until I came here. You want to know that you are being taken care of, that YOU matter, and that’s what I feel here.
I started feeling better immediately. The first time I got adjusted, I came in with a headache and left without a headache; I haven’t had a migraine since! Before, I couldn’t even get my pain during my cycle to a manageable amount WITH ibuprofen, now my cramps are very minimal or not there at all! My digestion has also improved significantly!
After the first month of care, my hands stopped shaking! I was feeling so much more energized. My brain fog was gone! I wasn’t able to focus on anything or be present before…now, it’s just so different! My anxiety and depression have improved so much; because so many of my other symptoms that were draining me have improved significantly, I am now better able to focus my energy on healthy ways to manage my anxiety and depression. It’s very apparent to people I am around on a daily basis that my health has improved by a landslide. I was shocked how quickly I started feeling better in literally every aspect of my health.
My life is just way better now. I am HEALING. You guys have helped me more than you know. I can’t even believe I let myself go so long feeling the way I was. I am so incredibly thankful I found CLC.
“I first came to CLC because I was struggling with anxiety, depression, severe menstrual cramps, lack of energy/motivation and panic attacks. I would either have to bathe myself in peace & calming or valor essential oils or suffer side effects of medication.
The doctors at Congruent Life were different because they wanted to get to the root causes & help my brain send the appropriate signals! I realized Chiropractic care was working when my suicidal ideation + irritability diminished and I had increased energy + joy!
Since being under care at CLC I am more motivated to workout, I love being a mama even more and I am getting my passion & zeal for life back! The cramping I used to experience during my periods has improved drastically. Postpartum depression and anxiety sucked that away from me -but with functional medicine, aromatherapy & Congruent Life Chiropractic I am learning to thrive again! Thank you!”
“I initially started coming to CLC because of my terrible headaches/migraines and also dizziness. I was getting them weekly, which impacted work and my daily life. I felt like I was constantly dizzy which would often make me nauseous. I blacked out OFTEN when standing up and would have to stop until my vision came back. I have been to other Doctors multiple times and they would just put me on meds which made me very ill. I also had very irregular bowel movements which I was taking medication for from time to time.
Since starting care at Congruent Life, my blackouts/dizziness have COMPLETELY stopped. I have fewer migraines and headaches as well.
A couple things that completely surprised me have also changed since starting care. I’m back to regular/daily bowel movements, I’m sleeping better and I’m MUCH less anxious. My menstrual cycle has also improved greatly!! I used to have horrible cramping/bleeding and now it’s completely bearable compared to the past!
I had heard all great things about Congruent Life which is why I started care here – in hopes for answers and change! I have been nothing but impressed with Dr. Mike’s knowledge and desire to help. He explains everything in detail and terms you can understand. Dr. Mike and Mady have a GREAT team! Very impressed all around!”
“I started chiropractic care in June 2016 because I had chronic migraines and hoped it would help lessen them. My migraines started at age 15 and worsened as I got older, with no real reason that a doctor could give me. At its peak, I was seeing a doctor at least 1x/month to get a shot of tylenol/benadryl to help a migraine go away, because it wouldn’t on its own. This was in addition to taking a daily preventative medication and another prescription for when I got a “breakthrough” migraine. I spent a lot of time in bed, in silence, with the lights off. It affected my life by making me miss school/classes, many activities with friends, and work shifts. When I did get out of bed, I was miserable and very irritable. After a few months of chiropractic care, I stopped getting migraines, and now it’s rare that I even get a headache. I never imagined it would improve this much!
Originally I just sought care for migraines, but I then realized there was SO MUCH MORE that CLC could and did help me with. Shortly before I started care, I had also seen a general practitioner for my anxiety, OCD, and nervous ticks. The doctor asked me what I knew about anti-depressants and suggested that it was the best option for me. I proceeded to take anti-depressants for a few months, which made me irritable, dull, everything was hazy, and I seemed to be indifferent or unhappy about everything. I was not in a good place. After 1 month of care, I slowly took myself off the medication and noticed significant improvement.
I also took a daily medication for UTI’s, which I got at least 1x/month. I didn’t think anything of this, since I had been getting them since I was a baby. The doctor simply blamed it on genetics. As the first month of care went by, I realized that I hadn’t gotten a UTI. I haven’t had one since, and I definitely don’t take a prescription for it anymore! I’m excited to say that I’m now off ALL medications.
It’s hard to even remember what my life was like before chiropractic care! Telling my story has made me realize that I can’t even imagine going back to how I was. I asked my fiance how he thinks chiropractic has helped me. He explained that I’m much more outgoing, energetic, and active. He described a time when I was constantly stressed out, had no hope of getting better, and was always pessimistic. I was unable to live life how we wanted to. Now, our relationship has improved because I am able to be the best version of myself!
I can’t thank Dr. Mike and Congruent Life enough! They provide hope and promote overall wellbeing for all of their patients. Dr. Mike not only encourages you to receive regular adjustments, but he encourages you to educate yourself. There’s so many things that chiropractic has done for me that I didn’t even know were possible. Through being a patient at Congruent Life, my ENTIRE life has been CHANGED for the better!”
“I came to Congruent Life because my anxiety was out of control, I was in pain everyday and I was experiencing menstrual problems. I have had anxiety since I was 18 years old and I just wanted to be in control of my anxiety without medication. One of my client’s kiddos came to see you guys and I saw his transformation! He was a totally different child, so I wondered if chiropractic could help me too. After some research and coming to one of your yoga events, I learned how chiropractic impacts the nervous system. That made me wonder, maybe what I was struggling with was related to my nervous system.
After starting care with you guys I really liked that the doctors actually explained what they were doing and why. I loved the scans, being able to track my progress and actually having a plan that was consistent and made real change. Since being under care I’m much happier and less annoyed by the little things. I’m less snappy so all of my relationships are better. My anxiety being lower at work is a huge benefit. I have more energy and motivation at home, so I don’t just crash at the end of each day. I have less cramping during my period and my sleep has improved! I feel like I am actually getting a full nights sleep, instead of waking up and having trouble getting back to sleep. I have experienced so many changes and my experience at CLC is different then any of my other chiropractic experiences. You guys treat everyone like family. Everyone is so kind and friendly! That makes all the difference!”
