Before beginning care at CLC, I was struggling with anxiety, vision issues, and extreme hot flashes and night sweats that significantly interfered with my ability to sleep. My whole family was already coming here when I decided to start. I was seeing so many improvements in my twins and husband once they began care at CLC, I finally decided it was my turn.
The vision issues I was dealing with made me feel like I had been drinking all the time— which I hadn’t. Turning my head too quickly would make me dizzy. We had done all kinds of medical testing- MRIs & CTs- and found nothing. I was dealing with this for 6 months before beginning care. It made me feel “off” all the time.
I didn’t know where to turn. I couldn’t see straight, glasses weren’t working, the eye doctor and medical doctors couldn’t find anything wrong, but I knew SOMETHING was going on. It was super frustrating not knowing what was wrong with me. I had also been on antidepressants before to help manage my anxiety and depression and didn’t want to have to go down that road again because of the side effects, they were affecting the relationship I had with my husband. I just didn’t want to go through my life medicated anymore. (We were at the point with our kids that medication was going to be our next step to help control their anxiety and behaviors, and when we were able to get to the root of their stress at CLC and ultimately did NOT have to resort to meds, I knew I wanted the same for myself).
You approach health and healing so differently at CLC. You look at what is going on internally to find the root cause of stress and dysfunction in the brain and body, rather than a “band-aid” approach I have experienced in the past. The neurological scans you do at CLC on the 1st visit to assess internal stress were very validating. You finally were able to pinpoint areas of stress that could be contributing to all the symptoms I had been struggling with for so long with no answers.
It didn’t take long to start feeling the benefits of chiro care. The vision and dizziness issues I was dealing with before have all improved since beginning care. I don’t have the brain fog like I used to. My hot flashes at night have improved significantly, which is allowing me to sleep so much better at night. I go to sleep faster and stay asleep; I don’t wake up in the middle of the night having to change my clothes because of night sweats anymore.
My temperament has also improved, I don’t snap like I used to. I’m managing my anxiety a lot better now, I don’t feel like it weighs on my shoulders like it used to. I’m able to process things that stress me out better, I can step away and take a breather and calm down rather than just flying off the handle. I’m not always on edge anymore, life is just easier now!
Coming to CLC has changed my perspective on life and health. I’m able to recognize stressors so much easier now and have been able to implement more effective coping mechanisms to manage my stress better.
When my kids are sick or showing signs of stress, my 1st inclination is to bring them in to get adjusted to allow their nervous system to ADAPT to this new stress more efficiently, and most of the time we are able to avoid trips to the pediatrician and medications because of it! Our whole family is processing and handling life stress so much better now that CLC is a part of our wellness journey.
The first 3 weeks of Bo’s life were really hard. He was super colicky and inconsolable; he was crying ALL THE TIME. His neck was stuck to the left and he was starting to get a flat spot on the back side of his head because of it. He also wasn’t nursing great because he was so uncomfortable when he would lay on his right side. He had acid reflux that was causing him to spit up quite a bit. He was very stiff, rigid and would always arch his back; no one besides me could even hold him. You could tell just by looking at him how uncomfortable he felt.
I took him to the pediatrician and they told me he would eventually “grow out of it,” they said colic and acid reflux was “normal.” As a first time mom, I felt very helpless and defeated, my baby was crying all the time and I felt like there was nothing I could do to bring him comfort. “He has colic and he will grow out of it” was not a good enough explanation for me. I had a gut feeling something wasn’t right and I knew we had to try something else.
He was 3 weeks old when we brought him to CLC. Bringing him here gave us ANSWERS as to what was going on in his body as a whole. Our first appointment gave me so much HOPE my baby boy was going to find relief. CLC gave us a more holistic approach and a plan to actually help him feel better. Once we started getting him adjusted, we saw improvements almost immediately. Within 1 week of care, Bo was much more manageable and by about week 3 he was a completely different baby! He’s now turning his head to both sides and the flat spot that was developing on the back side of his head has completely rounded back out; his head is so symmetrical now! The acid reflux is resolved and he has stopped spitting up. He is sleeping and nursing so much better. He also started SMILING. You can tell he overall is feeling so much better and is a lot more comfortable. My husband and other family members are able to hold him now because he has stopped arching his back and is able to move more freely!
Before coming to CLC, I had no idea how much stress babies go through during the birthing process. It has been such a positive learning experience for me. Parents aren’t told any of this before hand in the traditional medical field. His birth was very traumatic, they had to use forceps to get him out, but I still had no idea how much his little spine and nervous system were affected by that until we came here and had the neurological scans done on Bo. It was eye opening. There was SO MUCH stress on his little nervous system, but it gave me hope because we finally found answers and knew there was something we could do to help him now. Over the course of care we have seen SO MUCH improvement not only from a symptom standpoint, but also tremendous progress on the neurological scans that map out FUNCTION. We have learned so much about how to optimize Bo’s growth and development from the doctors at CLC. I know keeping his nervous system in check will help him work through milestones and leaps with ease. We don’t even see sleep regressions when he goes through a leap! Bo is THRIVING now and we couldn’t be happier!
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.
Coming to Congruent has been amazing to say the least. I started going to chiropractors a long time ago because of my scoliosis, but I had never experienced the level of care and healing you provide your patients with here. I moved to the area for college and knew I needed to find a new chiropractor, I’m so thankful I found CLC.
Before care at Congruent, it was very hard to sit still and focus in class. On top of that, all of the college books I was having to carry around was taking a toll on my body physically. I was extremely tense everywhere. The new surroundings and demands of college added a lot of emotional stress to my plate that I wasn’t handling well. My stress levels were all over the place and I was struggling with severe anxiety that was consuming my life. My sleep was horrible which led to a lot of fatigue and low energy. Additionally, I had experienced DAILY nausea, for the last 2 years; the thought of breakfast made we want to throw up.
SO MUCH has changed since beginning at CLC. My morning sickness has improved significantly; I was actually able to start eating breakfast without the nausea for the first time in YEARS! Before, my nervous system was too stressed to be able to digest food appropriately, but now I can fuel my body in the mornings to give me more energy throughout the day. The tightness between my shoulders has gone down by a lot and my body overall feels much more relaxed. One of the biggest changes I have noticed has been in my sleep and energy. Before, I would have nights where I’d be up all night long, which led to days where I wouldn’t be able to get out of bed. Now, I’m able to fall asleep at night and stay asleep rather than waking throughout the night, which has allowed me to wake up in the mornings with energy instead of feeling fatigued all day. I’m SO MUCH more energized!! That’s been extremely helpful to keep up with the demands between school and work as a college student.
Another HUGE change has been in my ability to handle stress. 6 months ago, one stressful situation would have just tipped me over the edge and I would freak out, my anxiety would go crazy and would often end in a panic attack. It was like having one drop of water in cup that would just cause all my stress to start overflowing, I couldn’t handle it well at all. The stress felt like it was crumbling me up and I couldn’t function. Now, I’m able to actually breath through my stress! Chiropractic has allowed me to utilize coping mechanisms so much better, rather than having the stress completely consume my mind and body. I can look at a problem more rationally and be able to solve it, now that my brain and nervous system aren’t always locked in fight or flight mode. Not only does my body feel so much better, but more importantly my MIND does.
When I was in high school, I actually worked at a chiro’s office and had a basic understanding of chiropractic; but when I came to CLC my eyes were completely opened to the neurological and functional aspect of how adjustments help the nervous system function better; your approach is much more wellness based which I LOVE, rather than always just focusing on pain. The doctors tell me exactly what is going on internally and how my nervous system is responding to adjustments FUNCTIONALLY, which is something I have never had with my prior chiropractic experiences. I really enjoy that aspect, it’s really encouraging to gain an understanding of what is going on with my body internally, you really involve me in the healing process which is so important, it gives me more motivation to want to lead a healthier life style in general.
This was my first chiropractic experience where I had the neurological scans done; they were so validating! I had never actually been able to SEE where the stress was at in my body and just how bad it was; you were able to explain to me what my symptoms were trying to communicate, WHY certain systems of my body weren’t functioning optimally, and how that was connected to my nervous system. It has really allowed me understand how chiropractic is helping my body heal, as well as those steps I can do along with you guys to heal myself fully; it’s been such an empowering experience. My chiropractic experience before all seemed to just revolve around pain, but you guys have gone way above and beyond that. You look at the WHOLE nervous system to restore function. I’ve been able to see so much progress on my scans along this healing journey. Knowing that not only am I feeling so much better, but also functioning so much better INTERNALLY has been so motivating for me to want to lead a healthier life style.
I am actually planning to go to chiropractic school in a few years! You guys have inspired me so much to want to incorporate so much of what you do here for your patients into my practice in the future to help people live a life where they feel and function their best! It’s so cool coming here and watching you care for so many kids and pregnant women, and really teaching people about how to be proactive in their health and healing journeys.
“The main reason we started Caiden at CLC were because of his allergies, but we ended up seeing many health improvements including his digestion! For the last couple of years, during the allergy season, Caiden’s allergies would flare up a little bit, but it wasn’t that big of a deal. They’d go away pretty quickly after a little Benadryl. My husband has allergies too so I’ve never really thought anything of it. But this past spring it was a different story; they were SO BAD. It happened pretty much over night, pollen season came and smacked us in the face. His eyes were so swollen, red, and itchy. He’s only 4 so he didn’t really know how to handle it, all he could do was whine and scream. We couldn’t go outside, I had to pretty much just sit him in front of the tv and hoped the Benadryl would kick in, but it just wasn’t helping like it had in the past. He’d just have to lay their with wash cloths on his face for comfort. Every day for 10 days he woke up with his eyes sealed shut with goop. He’d scream for me because he was scared he couldn’t see or open his eyes. It was right when the seasons were starting to change, the weather was so nice finally but we couldn’t go to parks with all our friends, we had to avoid all the fun activities. For those 2 weeks, he would react severely within just 10 minutes of being outside, itching all over the place… I was desperate for help.
I had been coming to CLC for a few years, and I love what you guys do here. Knowing that allergies are connected to the immune system, which is controlled by the nervous system, I knew we needed to try this.
On his initial visit, we got the scans done and they were indicating extreme stress in Caiden’s little body and nervous system. I felt a little overwhelmed and sad, you want the best for your children, you want them to be healthy, he’s only 4 and his nervous system was showing all this disease and dysfunction. I was sad about it, but at the same time I knew that’s why we were here. He is so young and there’s so much potential for healing in his little body. You guys explained the more stress on the scans you find, the more improvements you expect to see; that gave me a lot of hope.
Since starting with adjustments, undoubtedly he’s doing so much better. He’s not getting these flare ups, and in general I can tell his system is just so much more CALM. He doesn’t have the itchiness or puffiness anymore. He used to have random skin issues, little bumps and areas of eczema which is happening much less frequently over all. We were just at the Johnson County fair and there was hay being thrown everywhere, his eyes started to get a little puffy and itchy, but he recovered so quickly this time. He woke up the next morning and he was completely normal; at that moment it clicked for me that his body was able to recover so well against that little, mini attack. It didn’t last 2 weeks like before, it was literally a few hours and he was fine again!! I know his body is responding a lot better than it was prior to chiro care.
It’s always been in the back of my head that something was off with his digestion as well. His stools have always been pretty inconsistent and he would experience a lot of bloating. I know how important good gut health is for a properly functioning immune system, and that the nervous system plays a key role in that. With adjustments, I’ve noticed his digestion has improved and his poops are more healthy and regular! His bloating has also improved significantly. That’s been really cool to see. I know his body is now able to detox so much more efficiently with the improvements in digestion.
I’m so hopeful for next year when allergy season comes around and pollen counts spike, that Caiden’s body is going to be able to respond so much better. And I just love knowing that chiropractic care is allowing his ENTIRE body to function better in addition. Caiden LOVES coming here now! He was pretty nervous at first even though he’d been watching me get adjusted for months, but with in a few adjustments he would hop right up on the adjustment table; the doctors are so awesome with him and made him feel comfortable so quickly!”
“Before CLC, Cal was constantly getting sick. We had him in day care and it was one thing after another; it seemed like he was home sick with us every 2 weeks. Constant colds and ear infections, he would get over one and a week later he’d get another; he was miserable and I was miserable seeing him miserable.
I personally follow a more natural health approach so when we were on Cal’s 4th round of antibiotics, I was like “What am I doing? How did I get here?” That’s when I decided I needed to make a change for him and seek out other options.
Cal was always sick and it was starting to have a huge effect on our lifestyle. We were having to keep him home from daycare all the time, while still trying to work from home. It was getting to a point where it was becoming unmanageable. We ultimately ended up pulling him out of day care to try and keep him healthy, and we even had to cancel a family trip to Arizona because he kept getting ear infections.
Antibiotics were just a band-aid for Cal’s underlying health issues. If we wouldn’t have found CLC, we probably would have continued down that cycle of constant sickness and antibiotic use followed by a week of diarrhea and diaper rash, and then repeated a few weeks later. I came here wanting more of a root cause fix, and that’s what we got.
We started Cal at CLC in March (the week we had to cancel our trip to Arizona) when he was 11 months old and we haven’t looked back! It’s been about 5 months since we started getting Cal adjusted, and he hasn’t had a cold or ear infection since!! He has since started at an in-home daycare and we haven’t had to pull him out once. Our daycare provider just told us there was strep throat going around, but Cal didn’t get it! He’s a completely new, healthy and happy boy!
Now that we have a happy baby, there’s no more stress over him constantly being sick, we aren’t having to juggle working from home while simultaneously tending to a sick baby, we haven’t had to miss out on any activities; we’ve just had a great spring and summer with him, it’s completely changed our lives.”
“Before care at Congruent, I was in chronic pain and discomfort; it seemed like I was sick all the time. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 13 yrs old; that’s when my chiropractic journey began, but I continued to deal with chronic back pain and continual health issues for years until I found healing at CLC.
Additionally, the doctors told me at a young age I wouldn’t be able to have children naturally because of the way my ribcage was shifted (spoiler alert: they were wrong!!). I began care at CLC when I was pregnant with my first, and while being under weekly care I was actually able to have 2 natural births, and my 2nd was even at home! It’s crazy to see the results when you allow your body to do exactly what it was designed to do, despite external limitations doctors place on you, it’s opened our eyes so much.
With prenatal chiropractic care, both of my pregnancies were a breeze, which is something I honestly wasn’t expecting, especially because of my scoliosis. I was under the impression that pregnancy was not going to be comfortable, it was going to be very hard, but both of my pregnancies were enjoyable. I had no complications and there was hardly any pain.
In my 15+ years of prior chiropractic care, I NEVER experienced the pain relief and overall health that I’ve experienced since starting at CLC. My prior experience was more like a “band-aid” approach. Every time I went back to get adjusted, it was always the same symptoms over and over again, it was never really getting to the root of the issue.
Every visit here is different. If there is something new that comes up whether it’s allergies, constipation for the kids, going through a big transition in life… the doctors discuss it with us and we are adjusted accordingly. We are also scanned frequently to see how our bodies are functioning internally, which was something we had never experienced before at our previous chiros. It seemed like we were always having the same problems every week because they were never truly getting resolved. When we come here, we come with a problem and leave with a solution. There’s times when we bring the kids in and they are sick, and with chiro care, they are able to breeze through that illness without us having to use other interventions like medicine and additional doctor visits.
It’s been an empowering experience to be able to have an advocate on our side. Before coming here, we didn’t have that. We were just trying to “mask” our symptoms. If we had a headache, we would take ibuprofen… coming here has completely changed the way we view our health, we have the tools now to allow our body’s to heal and function at their very best. It’s allowed us to be advocates for our children and choose a different route of “standard care”. When sicknesses happen, they last a very short period of time. Sicknesses no longer take our household out for 2 weeks, it’s more of a 48 hr window and then we’re back up and running without needing other interventions like the standard meds and antibiotics we were always relying on before.
At CLC, you find the source of the problem rather than masking it. My whole life was essentially masking symptoms. Taking ibuprofen, doing whatever I could do to suppress the pain. Now, we address the source from the inside and use holistic ways to support our bodies run the course of what they need to go through to actually heal.
If we hadn’t started at Congruent before having kids, their lives would have been so much different. Changing our mindset around health is going to allow our kids to have better lives and change how they are going to view health and healing.
We lived 20+ years in the paradigm of taking medications to mask symptoms and nothing ever worked to make us ACTUALLY feel better or restore health. Here we are a couple years into care at CLC and we’re viewing our health through a completely different lens than we did before. Our lives are completely changed, and now we get to pass that down to our children as they grow.”
“Before starting at Congruent, I would let stress take over my body and it began to affect my overall health immensely. Stress and tension continued to build up over the years; I was trying to deal with my stress through different medications and “band-aids”, which never really seemed to help.
Finding an alternative approach to managing my stress has helped me so much. After starting here, I really started to see the benefits of adjustments, and how it was helping me manage my stress in a more efficient and effective way.
My wife and I had actually been going to a different chiropractor before finding CLC, but we always just felt like a number, and not a person. It was a very rigid routine there and it would be the same adjustments every time. At CLC the care we receive each visit is individualized to our experiences and the stress our body is holding onto on that particular day. It’s never the same.
Before care, my stress levels were so high they would interfere with my sleep quality which became a vicious cycle of getting bad sleep and being in a bad mood…it would affect my entire day. Once I started at CLC I was finally able to sleep through the night! Along with my sleep quality, my over all mood has improved dramatically, and I’m in much less pain; how I feel and function has been a complete 180.
For years, I was just masking my symptoms with ibuprofen and other meds. You guys have opened my eyes to where health truly comes from and there’s been a huge shift in my lifestyle; if I do feel under the weather, my first thought is now to come in and get adjusted rather than running for the medicine cabinet. We now use holistic tools to support our bodies through illnesses, rather than suppressing the symptoms. It feels better to not have to deal with the side effects of medicine all the time.
I recently got a letter in the mail from my doctor that they haven’t seen me in over a year; this opened my eyes so much to how much our lives have changed since CLC. Before, the doctor’s office is a place I would have to frequent often; it feels so good to know I’ve been able to take control of my health. You’ve opened my eyes to thinking differently, asking questions, getting to the root cause rather than suppressing symptoms all the time, and it’s definitely paid off in the end.”
“Before I started at CLC, the accumulation of stress on my body was out of control. I was in constant, debilitating pain; everything hurt from head to toe, I felt broken. At that point, I had been in pain for so long I thought this was my “forever” reality. It was affecting my relationship with my husband, my family… even my job. The pain was preventing me from being the grandma I always wanted to be.
I was in a car accident when I was 18 and I messed up my neck and lower back. Over time, the stress on my system kept building. I worked in skilled rehab as a therapist; I was lifting and transferring patients when we were doing treatment sessions until one day my back “went out” and I just fell to the ground, my coworker had to take me to the ER. Since then, every 2 years my back would just “go out” again and I would be in horrendous spasms and pain. The last time it happened to me I was just carrying my laptop and all of the sudden my back just snapped with no warning at all. It was so bad I couldn’t walk and I had to crawl up my basement steps. The pain continued to get worse and worse over the years. It would keep me up at night and got so bad to a point that every time I tried to turn in bed, I would just howl out in pain.
I couldn’t enjoy the time I had with my family because I was in so much pain. Last year, I tried taking my grandkids to the zoo, I wanted to enjoy this precious time with them but I couldn’t, I just felt miserable the whole day. I wanted to be the grandma that could be really involved with my grandkids, read them stories, take them on adventures… I couldn’t even hold my grandchildren or read to them, I couldn’t get on the ground to play with them because I knew I wouldn’t be able to get back up. I was being robbed of making these memories.
In the workspace, sitting in long meetings was getting to a point it was almost unbearable… at the rate I was going, I wasn’t going to be able to keep up with my workload much longer. My career was in jeopardy.
I was tired of feeling this way. Nothing was getting better. The debilitation it caused was embarrassing. I’m not that old. I shouldn’t feel THIS bad, but I thought this was going to be the way I was going to have to live forever.
I had been following you guys for a while and continued to see the amazing patient testimonials; even though I had tried physical therapy for a year and chiropractic care many times over without seeing results, I knew what you had to offer here was just so much different. I knew I had to come CLC to get better.
When I saw how stressed my nervous system was (and my husband’s) on the neurological scans on our first visit, my husband and I both felt so validated. Like “OMG, we aren’t crazy, this is really, really bad.”
So many people accept this as their reality all the time, I mean, I did for years and years. And now that I see what life can be like on the other side, I try to tell as many people as possible they NEED to do this. They CAN feel better.
I was amazed at how quickly I started feeling better after starting. When I go home at night after my adjustments, I always joke that you did your voodoo on me because I’m just so shocked at how instantaneously I feel so much better.
The first few weeks of care were life changing. I finally had HOPE. I kept waiting for things to turn back and get worse. I truly thought how good I was feeling was too good to be true, but it’s been a year now and I still feel amazing. I can’t even remember the last time I was in pain.
I have so much more hope for growing older now. I know that whatever comes up in the future internally, neurologically, that you will help me be the healthiest I can be. I always thought I had “bad luck”, this was just how I was going to feel forever, but I know now that simply isn’t true..
The quality of life for my husband and I has changed drastically. Things as simple as having a family get together are so much more enjoyable, between the cooking and cleaning, and standing… before we would be in pain for days after that, we couldn’t enjoy the family time we were getting, my husband and I would get irritable, I would have to sit down and not be able to interact with my family like I wanted to…but that has all changed now. My family is my WHY. I can finally be that grandma I’ve always wanted to be. I can read my grandchildren stories, I can hold them and play with them, I can take them on trips and truly ENJOY my time.
It’s truly a miracle and I feel so blessed I can enjoy life now, I can be present with my family and involved with my grandkids… I have to thank CLC for everything, for my LIFE, for my MARRIAGE, for my FAMILY, for my WORK… it wouldn’t be possible without the care we’ve both received here.
Now that my husband and I have experienced the healing we have here, we’re never going back to how we used to live, we are committed to making this a part of our forever wellness journey. Chiropractic has CHANGED my life and I refuse to go back to my old reality. Once you experience this, why would you ever want to go back.”
