Hope For Allergies and Sinus Infections

Hope For Allergies and Sinus Infections

"Dr. Brad has helped me in so many ways over the past several years. When I first began treatment with Dr. Brad, I had allergies, chronic sinus infections, and always felt exhausted.

I have not had a sinus infection since treatment began nor do I take allergy medicine anymore. The exhaustion is gone and I am so active now that Dr. Brad continues to treat my interesting injuries that occur from all the new activities I am enjoying..."

Shin Splints Case Study

Shin Splints Case Study

a young athlete with a big heart

A sixteen-year-old girl came to the clinic with lower leg pain. She had shin splints the last two seasons of softball and felt the same excruciating pain going into this season. Up to this point she had tried medications, taping techniques, exercises, and ice with no lasting relief. The condition continued to get worse and was limiting her effectiveness to play.

After an appointment with Dr. Brad, he discovered that both of her talus bones were misaligned in her ankles, she had a misaligned pelvis, and her nutritional status was low.

Treatment consisted of pelvic and ankle adjustments twice a week for three weeks and then once a week for five weeks. We also taught this young athlete how to tape her ankles appropriately for her condition. Finally, we put her on appropriate nutritional supplements to aid in healing.

Within three weeks of treatment her shin pain was negligible and very tolerable. She was able to play the entire season with very little discomfort.

Sleep Apnea and Stress Case Study

Sleep Apnea and Stress Case Study

Relief for a hardworking father 

A middle-aged man came into the clinic complaining of shoulder pain, overwhelming stress, allergies, sinus drainage, snoring, waking up numerous times through the night, and constant fatigue.

On his first visit, Dr. Brad found that he had a restricted airway most likely causing sleep apnea and decreased melatonin production. The patient also had slight hypothyroidism, an enlarged prostate, and spinal misalignments contributing to his shoulder pain.

The results of the treatment have been positive. It worked.
— a hardworking father

The solution was chiropractic adjustments for his lower neck and mid-back in order to increase nerve flow to his throat, thyroid, and shoulder. Specific nutritional supplementation was used to increase prostate, thyroid, and pineal gland production. Specific nutritional supplementation was also used to balance his brain chemistry and help him deal with stress. Specific acupuncture and Chinese herbs were used to decrease inflammation in his throat and open up his sinuses.

After two months of care, this patient has “no bothersome allergic reactions” and is now able to sleep through the night without a CPAP machine. He now has energy to exercise and feels that he can deal with the stressors in his life.

Hope For A Runner's Knee Pain

Hope For A Runner's Knee Pain

“I gave up running for one year because of knee problems. I was afraid my joints couldn’t take it and that I was causing long term damage. But Dr. Brad was optimistic that it was do-able for me to run.

His treatment was so simple and now I’m running again. My knees are dramatically improved and there are indications that the ligaments around my knees are realigning for better support!

I heartily recommend Dr. Brad. He cares and can improve what otherwise might seem hopeless. He believes running when appropriately supported is possible throughout life.”

Hope For Hip Pain & Irregular Periods

Hope For A Young Boy With Asperger Syndrome

Hope For A Young Boy With Asperger Syndrome

“Our 10-year-old son has Asperger Syndrome. He had been pulling out his eyebrows and his hair. He was not sleeping through the night and had a lot of angry verbal outbursts. These things had been going on for two to three years.

We saw almost immediate results under Dr. Brad’s care.

Our son began sleeping through the night and quit pulling his hair. His attitude has improved and his reading took off.

I appreciated Dr. Brad’s understanding of the situation and his honesty about how often he really needed to see our son to get and maintain results. I would highly recommend Dr. Brad. He understands the dilemma of families like ours and is always very friendly to our son.

The results have been great and quick.”
