DANA AND EAN
Dana and Ean first started seeing Dr. Sprague in 2016. Prior to care, Dana had neck pain that made it difficult for her to turn her head to the left. This made it difficult to work on a computer or drive. It also affected her sleep. She felt cranky and tired all the time, and was unable to do her job to the fullest potential. Shortly after starting care, she became pain free. She can drive with no issues, is not as tired, and can think more clearly. She stated “Dr. Sprague is one of the most positive, caring people I know. She is truly here to help everyone feel better. I also feel the technique is flawless. I felt instant relief. Everyone in the office is positive and knowledgeable. I believe everyone can benefit because I do not know how anyone stays in perfect alignment on their own.” Ean has had bad allergies, suffers with sensory issues, but is now also doing much better, even impressing his teachers with his changes.
Rebecca started coming to the clinic with pain in her chest and upper back, which caused difficulty when breathing deeply. She also had pain when she tried to turn over in bed, so it affected her sleep. She went to her primary care doctor and was prescribed muscle relaxers, but it wasn’t until she started getting corrections at Elliott Sonar Clinic that her pain finally went away.
She is now pain free! She continues to get regular check-ups and feels like she knows how to “listen” to her body, knowing when she needs to be corrected. In describing Dr. Sprague, she said, “A sweetheart! I appreciate her sincere caring heart and expertise.” She also stated, “Arin has been such a blessing in getting us in when we needed to come in.”
Paula came into our clinic after hearing about us from her accountant. Paula had hip pain and surgery, but was still in severe pain. She went to two other surgeons to try to find a solution, but they only offered pain medication, which she declined.
She eventually had to stop working because of the pain. After one treatment she could stand up with NO PAIN. She stated, “I felt like I was 30. I’m 64.” She was also diagnosed with rotator cuff problems that they told her needed surgery, but she declined that too. After just a few treatments, Paula is also pain free in her shoulder.
When Marla stays in alignment, she does not have any neck pain or headaches.
Dale first started coming to Elliott Sonar Chiropractic because of severe pain in his head, neck and back. This made it difficult to work, take care of his home, and participate in any recreational activities. He often had to medicate and dealt with depression due to the pain. His chronic pain is gone, and he seldom even has minor pains. He no longer has to take drugs to stop the pain and no longer feels depressed. He understands the importance of his spinal health, so he now gets regular check-ups to ensure he continues to live his life to the fullest. He has sent many friends and family members in over the years so they too could benefit from proper alignment. He stated “The people in the office have a caring and positive attitude toward you, and taking care of your problem is their focus. Dr. Sprague is very knowledgeable about the spine and willing to answer any questions you have about your treatment.”
Bessie has been a patient since January of 2017. She originally came in because she had pain in her neck and back that had been present for several years. Two years prior, she had an episode that was diagnosed as dehydration from a medication. She described it as being disoriented, her equilibrium was off, she felt “funny”, and began leaning toward the left when she would stand. If she moved her body more toward the left, she would fall over. She went off the medication and increased her fluids but those symptoms didn’t go away. She eventually learned to just live with them. She was very pleased with the time Dr. Sprague took to explain everything. After her first correction she immediately felt different. Her pain and all of her “dehydration” symptoms totally went away. She no longer leans to her left. She came in for pain in her neck and back, but found the results from care to be much more than she expected!
Karen started coming to Elliott Sonar Chiropractic because she was having knee pain and severe lower back pain. The pain changed a lot of things in her life and left her feeling miserable and depressed. She felt like she was not able to function very well because of it. After just a few corrections she felt much better and now feels like her old self, with NO PAIN. If the pain starts to return, she knows she needs to get back in and it will again go away. She feels like she has her health back. She stated, “It feels great to feel good. I have thanked her for the work she does (Dr. Sprague); it has changed my life and I thank God for her.”
Prior to care, Jon had constant back pain that limited his activities and stopped him from being able to mow, lift anything or ride horses. If he did try to do them then he would “be down for a few days”. After his very first correction he had very little pain and was even able to ride his horse for the first time in over a year! He stated “I am able to do normal activities now!” He also said “I would highly recommend Elliott to everyone. The staff is wonderful and very friendly. Most of all, I feel like I am getting my life back!!!”
“I had a lot of pain in my lower back and shoulder from doing yardwork. When I come in for a treatment it helps tremendously. I am very pleased with the treatments, and the atmosphere and staff are unbelievable.”
She originally started coming to the clinic because of a snow skiing accident that occurred six years prior and caused three compression fractures in her spine. This left her with pain in her arm and elbow and numbness in her hand that was progressively getting worse. The pain had become chronic and caused irritability and limited her desire to do activities that she once had been very involved in. She did exceptionally well under care on many levels. She stated, “It is critical to one’s overall feeling of well-being, mentally, physically and emotionally. I feel so much healthier knowing I can get treatment and my pain clears up. It makes life so much happier and easier.” She went on to say, “Dr. Lori Sprague is so wonderful, gentle, kind and attentive to my needs when I’m hurting. She knows how to make me feel good all over. I’m blessed to have her in my life and depend on her a lot.” Rosemary truly understands the importance of good chiropractic care and regular checks. She stated, “Chiropractic work is an essential part of our overall health, so make sure you include it in your daily life – especially Sonar Chiropractic. It is so-o-o easy and nothing to fear – use it!”
“The greatest people in the world. Trust ‘em, believe in them!”
DOLLY & JUDY
Dolly first started seeing Dr. Sprague ten years ago for her back. Dolly states that she always gets relief and feels much better after her adjustments here. She says, “The staff here at Elliott Sonar Chiropractic are friendly, helpful and are concerned about your problem.”
Judy stated “I came into the clinic because I was having grabbing type pains and would feel like my lower back would get caught. It didn’t allow me to complete my normal daily tasks and didn’t feel like I could have a normal life because of it. Sonar Chiropractic has changed my life. I am now able to go about my normal activities, housework, and was even able to be a caregiver. Dr. Lori Sprague is super friendly and very knowledgeable about chiropractic care. She and the staff are very friendly and always have a smile for you when you come in for your appointment!”
Nils started seeing Dr. Sprague back in November 2011. He had been suffering from neck and back problems, and he had a hard time turning his head because he was constantly stiff. He now has much more flexibility in his head and neck. He enjoys Elliott Sonar Chiropractic for its gentle technique.
“I initially received treatment at Elliott Sonar Clinic due to overall body pains, loss of body strength, vertigo, light headed and I had a terrible limp which messed up my whole body. When I would try to walk I would be in extreme pain and constantly fatigued by it. I wasn’t sleeping well and it would hurt if I had to drive long distances. I felt like I didn’t have a normal life. My family had been worried about me for about a year.
Since starting care I am doing so much better. I feel like Dr. Sprague has saved my life. I hold my adjustments very well and I have no pain at all. I am getting help with my diet and I am feeling better and losing weight. I can tell that my body is actually healing itself.
The doctors are wonderful and I trust them fully! The staff is also very good. They are caring and truly interested in me. They make you feel like you are at home.”
