I was plagued by chronic headaches, increasing number of migraines and chronic neck and back pain. The headaches began as a young child and the migraines started about 3 years ago. I was living with the back pain for nearly 15 years. A car accident at the age of 3 began the problems. At its worst, I was having headaches nearly daily and migraines lasting 48-72 hours, twice a week. I was also having back pain and tenderness nearly daily.
I tried Advil, Tylenol, exercise, stretching. breathing techniques and diet change. I would experience temporary relief occasionally, but never solid results. There were days when I had to just lay down for long periods of time which prevented me from enjoying my family, friends and hobbies. Many times, I had to cancel plans because of the pain.
A friend referred me to Baker Chiropractic and Wellness. She is not a patient but heard wonderful things about them.
Within a month of going to Dr. Matt Finke at Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, my energy level increased. The headaches had decreased to just a couple a month and the migraines were down to one a month. The chronic back pain greatly subsided also.
After going to Dr. Matt for several months, the headaches were virtually gone, minus an occasional tension headache and a monthly hormonal migraine. My posture and stamina have also greatly improved. An unexpected improvement is the circulation in my legs.
Dr. Matt and his team are very warm and friendly. I always feel very welcomed and comfortable when I am there. Also, they are wonderful with my 9 year old daughter. She loves coming to her appointments. Here’s her story:
Anna was suffering from both cyclic vomiting syndrome and headaches. The cyclic vomiting began when she was 3 and the headaches around the same age. So she had it for around 6 years. I am unsure of the cause, potentially birth and falling a lot as a toddler.
At its worst, she was having a vomiting episode about every 1-2 months. She would vomit every 45 minutes to an hour for 8-9 hours and always during the night. The next day she was extremely lethargic.
We tried Advil, Tylenol, diet changes, avoiding triggers, breathing techniques, pressure points and herbal remedies. These would provide temporary relief to the headaches, but never to the vomiting episodes.
The signs of an episode would begin in the morning so she was unable to go anywhere or exert herself that day or the day after. This prevented her from being able to regularly spend the night with friends, go to camp, and have later nights up with the family.
After becoming a patient at Baker Chiropractic and Wellness, her cyclic vomiting is now completely gone and she only has occasional headaches. She has had several sleepovers and late nights with the family!
Anna loves Dr. Matt and his team. They are very kind, gentle and engaging to her.*
