I was referred to Dr. Freeman and Dr. Whitten by my massage therapist two years ago. I was not feeling too well in those days. About a year before that, I’d been rear ended on I-95, and sustained neck and back injuries. Despite frequent chiropractic visits, my recovery was slow and I always had residual discomfort and limited range of motion.
I’ve been to chiropractors my whole adult life, but there’s a distinctive difference when a patient walks into the CARE Wellness Center’s office. The front desk staff are friendly and supportive, the massage techs do their best to rub out the knots in your shoulders, the doctors are phenomenal.
Besides being highly skilled, they are genuinely interested in their patients’ wellbeing, and never rush you through a visit. They always take the time to ask detailed questions about how you’re doing, offer suggestions for your improvement, including therapeutic exercises, nutrition/supplementation.
After repeated sessions of ultrasound, massage, electrical stimulation, stretching and gentle adjustments, I was definitely improving! My three-time a week visits could be reduced to twice weekly, then once weekly, then bi-weekly, then monthly.
They must have some magical formula, because even though I’d seen chiropractors before, my condition improved the most with these doctors. My body felt stronger, and when I was able to resume exercising, my resilience and endurance continued to improve. I’ve lost weight, toned up, gotten stronger and can now work out with weights, bike, do yoga, and hike again the way I used to!
This summer we went to the Grand Tetons in Wyoming. After doing strenuous hikes there and in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia without mishap, I was a klutz in the parking lot near the ranger station, and tripped over a rock. I’d been walking fast, and before I knew it, I was face first in the cement, supported on my wrists.
It could have been a day of serious injury; thankfully I just had a few minor cuts and bruises, and continued on the hike. Of course I came in for an adjustment when we returned…
Dr. Freeman and I were both amazed that my body had held strong and I just needed minor adjustments to neck and back. I healed very quickly and now I’m as good as new! I know that my good health can be attributed to excellent chiropractic care for the past two years.
These days, I’m able to check in for a “tuneup” whenever needed, and I’m always welcomed back with a hug.
An appreciative patient,
