We would like to introduce to you, the Shaeffer Family…
Stephanie started coming to our office about 6 years ago. She had headaches, migraines and low back issues. She was referred in by a friend of hers who was also a patient of ours. Over time, with continued care under Dr. Olsen, she was able find relief from these issues that were affecting her daily life and making it difficult to continue with her day to day activities. After completing Dr. Olsen’s recommended care plan, Stephanie’s migraines had significantly dimished and she was able to resume activities she previously was unable to do.
Her husband, Jerry also became a patient after experiencing low back pain due to a curvature of his spine, which is referred to as scoliosis. Scoliosis can be a painful misalignment of the spine that can reduce movement and function of the spine. Jerry was experiencing these symptoms and also had Harrington Rods in his back from T1-L4. Many people believe that chiropractic care is not an option for patients that have had spinal surgery, Harrington Rods, or fractures of the vertebra. This is not necessarily the case. Chiropractic care is beneficial for all ages and walks of life and Dr. Olsen assesses each patient on a case by case basis to determine if chiropractic care is for you. Jerry has completed his recommended care plan and experienced a reduction in symptoms related to his scoliosis. He is now on our wellness plan to maintain the progress that he has made and to keep his spine functioning and moving properly.
Stephanie’s son, Jerad, and his wife, Brittany, started coming in as patients shortly thereafter. Jerad was experiencing low back pain and Brittany was pregnant with their first son, Jaxson, and was coming in seeking relief from low back pain. She knew chiropractic care was incredibly beneficial for pregnancy. In addition to relieving back pain associated with a mom’s growing belly, chiropractic care also keeps baby in proper positioning (head down) for delivery without intervention, and boosts immune function, which keeps mom and baby healthy and strong during a time when it’s incredibly important to keep your body in excellent health.
After Jaxson was born, he was diagnosed with infant torticollis, which is a tilted head or when a child has trouble turning his head. Jerad and Brittany decided to start his treatment at our office at the age of 1 month and after his first visit, his range of motion had increased dramatically. Continued care on a consistent basis removed all signs of infant torticollis and Jaxson was able to turn his head without any pain or discomfort.
Jerad and Brittany also have another son, Deacon, who received his first adjustment at the age of 2 days old. Both children are currently wellness patients and receive weekly adjustment to keep their immune, digestive, endocrine, and respiratory systems strong, healthy, and firing at 100% along with decreasing risks for common childhood ailments such as ear infections and other viruses.
Additionally, chiropractic care is extremely beneficial for more chronic ailments such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), sensory processing disorders, autism, and seizures.
Stephanie’s daughter, Desiree, began care due to his frequent episodes of migraine headaches. She experiences them much less and due to the incredible results she has received, she is now a wellness patient, coming in weekly to decrease the possible reoccurrence and take a proactive approach towards her health.
