My Chiropractor Got Me Pregnant!

I had been having neck and back pain for months, perhaps years. I just ignored it or pushed through it because life was too busy.

We battled infertility for years before fertility treatments finally gave me two beautiful children (now ages 7 and 4). Once the kids came, I … [Read more...]

Chiropractic Care Healed My Sciatica When Injections and Epidurals Could Not

I was in severe pain for over three months from acute sciatica. I think it all started from pushing a heavy cart. The pain was so bad that I could not stand, walk or sleep. I was totally incapacitated and could not perform any of my normal daily activities. I went to an orthopedist that was connected to The Christ Hospital who prescribed cortisone injections in my rump. I was also prescribed … [Read more...]

Chiropractic Care Provides a Solution for My Interstitial Cystitis

"In March of 2012, I was diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis or IC.  I had been having problems consistently for 6-8 months. I did not know what IC was.

Ten Years of Neck Pain Eliminated and a Dramatic Improvement in Overall Health

Heather Found Hip Pain Relief and Life Changing Health Care

"It was my right hip and it had been bothering me for quite a few weeks. I just thought it was related to my running. It was very difficult for me to perform everyday activities.

The thing that was most frustrating for me, however, was how it interfered with my … [Read more...]

No More Pain, No More Pills, No More Insulin Injections

Many years ago my daughter hurt her back picking up her French horn and we needed to call the paramedics (she was flat on her back.) The paramedics who responded said “Take her to Dr. Matt!” After a visit to the emergency room and some muscle relaxers, I took her to Dr. Matt Finke the next day. Soon I was visiting Dr. Matt on my own for a fall that happened 12 years ago. I fell out of my … [Read more...]

A Must-Read Story About Diabetic Neuropathy

"As a diabetic, I'm no stranger to pain and sickness.  However, I was never prepared for the agonizing pain of diabetic neuropathy.  It sneaks up on you.  Starting with just a little tingle, then maybe a burning sensation.  Not too bad, right?  That's just how it begins.  As it progresses the burning is constant, like having a match to your feet at all times until you are praying for the pain to … [Read more...]
