PATIENT TESTIMONIALS

I must admit, I first visited Dr. Wilson with some skepticism.  I was referred to him by my family physician for a shoulder problem that I had been dealing with for quite some time.  I had been to physiotherapy (47 appointments), acupuncture (10 appointments), and two other chiropractors (8-12 visits each) within the previous two years.  Although my shoulder had improved slightly following each visit, the problem seemed to keep returning.  When I first met with Dr. Wilson, my shoulder was to the point where my sleep was being affected and I was no longer able to enjoy playing the sports I loved without a constant nagging pain. 

Dr. Wilson first went through an exam with me and looked at not only my shoulder, but also my elbow, wrist, neck and upper back.  He told me on the next visit that it would take between 6 and 10 visits to get my shoulder back to normal.  Apparently my problem was due to a build up of scar tissue from an old injury which was causing my entire upper arm and back not to move properly.  Dr. Wilson worked through the muscles and tissues on each visit breaking up the scar tissue.  By the 6th visit I was pain free and by the 8th visit I was no longer having pain during the night and I was back playing volleyball and pitching without any problems.  I was left with a set of exercises to help rebuild the affected muscles.  It is now 6 months later and my shoulder is great! 

I would recommend Dr. Wilson to anyone who has a lingering muscle or joint problem and who thinks that they have “tried everything”.

Many thanks again!

Chad was very professional and personable and dealt with my issue in only two sessions.  I’ve been pain free ever since.  Thanks Chad!

I’ve had back adjustments and soft tissue massage from Chad

The soft tissue massage fixed severe knee problems that made it difficult to ride a bike.  He also got me quickly back into shape after my back and neck were thrown out in a car accident.  Great guy – keeps very up to date on the latest techniques and knowledge.

I’ve seen Chad for Chiropractic care.  His office has great hours, convenient location and accessible services.  I always walk out feeling much better than when I walked in.

Dear Dr. Wilson;

 

This letter is a simple “thank you”.  At 52 years of age I have been feeling some pain and cramping in both my feet.  Since you have done Active Release Therapy, frequently referred to as ART, on both my feet, I have experienced a significant reduction in the cramping.  In addition, my shoulder has kept me on the anti-inflammatory drug, celebrex, for quite some time in order to tolerate the pain.  Again, ART has proven to have helped in that I no longer am taking the drug and the pain is tolerable.

 

I also believe that the chiropractic adjustments in my neck significantly reduce the tension I usually feel in my neck and shoulders.  It actually feels “warm and tingly” when I leave your office and believe me, that is a nice feeling.  I have also been able to increase my range of motion as a result of both chiropractic and ART.  Although I still get migraine headaches, I am hopeful that with time, the therapy will alleviate these.  For all this, I thank you.

 

I also want to acknowledge your approach in that you have always taken the time to explain and, on a number of occasions, I have actually felt some energy transfer during treatment (most likely coming from my reiki training).   We have had some good conversations as well.  It is sad that the system does not fully embrace the practice and that insurance companies will not support it as it does the drug manufacturing industry.

 

In closing Dr. Wilson, thank you for your warmth.  I would not hesitate to refer you to anyone who is open to and has access to natural healing practices before accepting invasive procedures or the possibility of having to take drugs to mask pain. 

 

Regards,
