We both feel vibrant and more youthful! With more confident in running and personal records being set, and the ability to play with our kids and getting personal records in weight lifting, we thank Family First Chiropractic!

My recovery has been fantastic! My mobility has completely returned. Muscles do not hurt. No more stinging debilitating pain. Believe me when I say I was in a bad way when I came in. It is incredible, really, how much better I feel, I crawled in, I walked out!
I came to Family First Chiropractic with headaches, backaches and vertigo. I had tried the Epley procedure, seen an allergist, had my vision checked and CT scans. Having vertigo, all of life came to a hault. I met the doctors of Family First Chiropractic at a health fair during work and now have been able to switch from Ibuprofen to natural aides such as herbal tea and vitamins. My GP doctor kept ignoring my condition and it is nice to feel validated by someone. Someone was finally hearing me and telling me why I was suffering from the problem and they were able to help.
I started seeing a chiropractor 9 years ago for pain in my hips. While maintaining my chiropractic care, I was able to see an improvement in not only the comfort in my hips, but I also experienced fewer headaches and migraines. I have heard about how chiropractic care can help pregnant women but I was a little skeptical. I asked a friend what her birth was like after having consistent care, and she mentioned that it helped with the length of time she was in labor.
Knowing this, when I became pregnant in March, I immediately told Dr. Cliff Fisher that I was expecting. I knew that he would be so excited for me since he has always been a personable and caring doctor, but he also wanted me to get the best care possible. He recommended that I visit every other week during all three trimesters. I have consistently seen Dr. Cliff and Dr. Jack during my pregnancy. Throughout this pregnancy, I have experience little to no discomfort. I have slept soundly and have had only minor discomfort during these final weeks. What little discomfort I have felt, I have always been able to tell Dr. Jack and he is able to find ways to fix it or suggest techniques or resources to make me more comfortable and healthy. He has also offered to see me even if the office is closed to address any discomforts that I may have between appointments.
I work with another woman that is due two days before me. She often mentions how uncomfortable she is and how little sleep she is getting. I believe I am more comfortable and healthy because of the consistent care that I have received from Dr. Cliff and Dr. Jack during my pregnancy. I am excitedly looking forward to my baby’s birthday because I am confident that it will be quick and easy with my body in perfect alignment.
I actually decided to see a chiropractor as a last resort after seeking different opinions from doctors and neurologists after pulling a muscle in my back. I also tried different pain medications. A relative referred me to the office and now I have very little pain and my life is back to normal. I am happy that I can play with my son again and that I have more energy and feel better all around.
As a pole vaulter in high school, college and now masters. I’ve had a whiplash effect every time I would land in the pit. Also every time I would leave the ground there would be a lot of forward pressure on my entire spinal cord (called an inverted “c” in the pole vault ward).
The biggest thing I’ve noticed when I compete in a meet and haven’t had time to train for it, the next day I’m not sore. Before starting a chiropractic regimen the next day I could barely walk because I would be so sore but now I feel great!
My pain was so sever in my back and neck that I would have to lay down because I could not bear to sit anymore. My doctor referred me to Family First Chiropractic and now I am feeling great! My mind is off my injury and I am very happy with the results so far. I was skeptical because I tried physical therapy for so long which didn’t work, but this has worked great!
Before I came to Family First Chiropractic, I couldn’t even curl my daughters hair without being in fear of burning her if my arm went numb. I want to thank Dr. Jack and Family First because I have tried many things in the past including physical therapy and pain medication all to no avail. After treatment I have more energy to play with my kids and no longer suffer from numbness in my arm or leg, I also have a significant amount of pain reduction and no longer wake up with a headache everyday.
What lead our family to FFC was an ambulance ride to the ER for myself. Once able to function (barely) the ER sent me home with the recommendation of seeking help for my back.
My back issue had been a strain on my family and I could barely participate in day to day activities. I could not stand to tell my three small children “We cannot do that, Mommies back hurts!” so we just avoided a lot!!
As per most individuals that seek help for back injuries I had tried a long list of medication, massage, Pilates and “avoidance!” Once I discovered Family First Chiropractic all of our lives have forever been changed. Myself, all three of our children and my mom seek the wonderful wellness that Family First Chiropractic offers. We now spend a lot of time doing activities that seem simple to most like playing on the floor with my children, bike riding, taking long walks, skiing, etc.
It has been an amazing journey.
Our son sleeps better than he has in his entire eight years of life, our daughter, 6, who has significant health issues has finally found relief from a myriad of pain and discomfort, our daughter, 3, says every time,
“I love Dr. Jack and Dr. Rachel they make me feel great!”
My mom was the hardest to convince she was in an accident in 1974 with horrible whiplash. She has been in pain for over 35 years. My father has even noted verbally that she has not been this comfortable in all the time he can remember!
Not often enough I try to express my gratitude for myself, my children and my Mom’s incredible improvement in quality of life.
Thank You, never seems to even come close to what truly needs to be expressed. We are forever grateful!
The Skolak Family
Thank you for dinner and for an awesome night!!!
It is truly amazing to me that as humans we don't have to actually learn anything new to have a great life, all we have to do is apply and use the knowledge that most of us already have. Thank you so much for helping. Andrea and I both realize where we were wrong with our current habits and where we can be right with our future habits. We both want chiropractic to be a vital part of our new life structure.
2012 is already the best year ever!!! I know things will only get better as we make good choices for our lives.
Thanks for the amazing messages, life-styles, and choices that you open up for those who will listen! God Speed and God Bless.
Family First has become a part of my family, in this past year I have experienced more miracles in my life than I thought possible. Now I am healthier, happier, and much more in tune with my body thanks to one of my transformational partners – Family First Chiropractic.
