Never too young for chiropractic

Posted: March 26, 2019
By: Angie

I travel quite a bit for work and being in a car and plane all the time has done havoc on my body. I never expected to be going to a chiropractor in my 20s! It's also been tough trying to find a well respected excellent chiropractor with my hectic work schedule. So to start my review:

Dr. Powers is amazing.

He is genuinely kind-hearted and wants to help the community's wellness. He is a runner himself so he gives me tips on how to take care of myself. He remembers the littlest details and is always so pleasant to talk to. Every time I come in for a visit, I feel like I am visiting my uncle. I have had issues with my lower back and also right shoulder. Also since I am tall, I generally tend to slouch quite a bit as well. With my visits, I can feel the improvements. Over a month of traveling, I am generally aching all over and as soon as I get home, I come see Dr. Powers right away to make it all better. He not only takes care of me, my elderly mom (age 66) goes to him as well. Doesnt matter if you are young and fit, or need care at an elderly age, I highly recommend him!

Total Knee Recovery

My experience was and is life changing. I was scheduled for a total knee replacement when I first saw Dr. Powers. I didn't really know what chiropractic care was, and he made no promises about my knee.

In the course of getting me aligned, my neck got back to normal and my back is almost there. Dr. Powers paid attention to and treated my knee. Amazingly, he took it from the bone on bone it had been for decades to actually having space between the bones.

I cancelled my surgery.

It is still a bad knee, but is tolerable thanks to his treatment. The rest of me moves so much better that I really wish I had gone to a Chiropractor decades ago. But then I wouldn't be Dr. Power's patient today. I am SO grateful for his skill and care. The office and staff are very comfortable. I highly recommend Powers Family Wellness.


Transformed my life

I am a disabled veteran with a pinched nerve and herniated disc in my upper cervical. For over five years I suffered in chronic pain and could not sleep, could not run, could not even lift up my four-year-old daughter and this injury was taking a tremendous toll on my well-being and life.

I was referred to Dr. Powers who has tremendously transformed my well-being to a more manageable life. My experience with Dr. Powers and his staff has been all but the best treatment, services and customer service experience.

After a few weeks of treatment I was able to actually get a full nights rest, increasing my daily productivity as well as return back to physical training to support the adjustments.

The powers wellness center is very flexible with my schedule as well as my finances. Dr. Powers and his staff are very knowledgeable on chiropractic treatment as well as other things to support your well-being. I highly recommend and urge anyone to take on chiropractic treatment and experience your power being turned on! Thank you to Dr. Powers and his staff for transforming my life!


I have nothing to lose..

I came to Powers Family Wellness while I was recovering from a frozen shoulder that as a result was increasing my poor posture and I was still experiencing some soreness.

When each shoulder was frozen, there were so many things I couldn’t do! I’ve had a slouch my whole life that affected how people saw me and how I saw myself.

I have been through acupuncture, yoga, physical therapy, pilates, and strength training. Anything to prevent the latest frozen shoulder. (None of it worked!)

Having nothing to lose, I decided to try chiropractic.

I felt better after a couple of adjustments but once I saw my x-rays after 3 months of treatment, I was a believer!

There were changes in my health of course included but not limited to the state of feeling good.  The biggest thing I have noticed over the course of my treatment was the improvement in my posture. This affected my life tremendously by giving me an increase in self confidence.

Others don’t notice my improvement as much as I by just looking at me but that changes once I show them my x-rays and before and after posture pictures.

I would definitely recommend chiropractic to others because I not only feel better but I understand now how getting regularly adjusted can improve my health and KEEP me healthy.


Symptoms only getting worse..

My good friend Jack referred me to Powers Family Chiropractic.  He had been coming there for years.

I was experiencing neck, mid back, lower back pain, and stiffness. My knees and shoulders hurt and I was starting to feel numbness in my left foot. I had been experiencing these symptoms for 2 years and they were getting worse.

Work and exercise were becoming more and more difficult and any physical activity was making my symptoms worse. Even walking and sleeping was becoming hard to do. As you can imagine, my mood was getting worse and worse.

I tried massage and acupuncture to ­no avail and I was becoming desperate until finding Dr. Powers.

After starting chiropractic care at Powers Family Wellness, progress was slow at first but within a few months I began to feel better.

Now after more than a year of care, I can say that I feel much, much better. I’m more flexible. I’m able to do all of my exercises and play badminton without any difficulties. I sleep better, have more energy, and am much happier over-all. I recommend chiropractic to others and I know it will help them have better, happier lives.

I plan on continuing chiropractic care for years to come to maintain my current level of health!



Canceled my surgery

Before seeing Dr. Powers, I had serious health problems. I had gone through three surgeries, each less than four months apart and was already scheduled for my next one. In less than a week I was going to have another back surgery.

The back surgery was intended to relieve the severe back pain I was experiencing by surgically implanting neuroelectrodes along my spine. I wasn’t pleased with the idea of having another surgery. 

My neighbor Patsy brought me along to a seminar Dr. Powers was having over Alzheimer’s disease. After his presentation, I decided to give chiropractic a try and my first adjustment was amazing. After 2-3 more treatments, the pain had diminished so much that I canceled the surgery.

Since I started chiropractic care, huge changes in my health have occurred. No more back pain, no more pain pills, and I can walk without using a walker now. I can go wherever I want with no limitations, most of the time I drive myself and can provide transportation for my neighbors.

My family, especially my neighbors who see me all the time, are very excited about how good I feel now. They’re always saying I’m a different person since chiropractic.

I highly recommend to everyone that they start getting chiropractic treatment because Powers Family Wellness has made such a wonderful difference in my life. I plan to have chiropractic care in my life until I can no longer get out of bed. Then I’ll try to get Dr. Powers to come see me at home.

Thank goodness for Powers Family Wellness Center!



Improving Quality of Life

For years I had been living with constant hip and leg pain. It had been getting so bad that I could not walk at all without a cane or a walker. I took pain meds constantly to the point where I was getting depressed and fearful that I would become dependent on the pain meds to be able to function at all.

I tried everything; physical therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, orthopedic doctors, and my general practitioner. Nothing helped.

I finally came to Powers Family Wellness and started my spinal corrective care with Dr. Powers. Wow! What a difference! I’ve noticed lots of positive changes in my health since I’ve received care here. I feel significantly less pain and stiffness, I sleep better, my quality of life has vastly improved and I am no longer dependent on pain meds!

I can now walk without using a cane or a walker and I can manage to do all of my home care activities that were too difficult for me to do before like gardening and cooking. Even my friends and family started noticing my improvement and have all been impressed with my health improvements during my chiropractic care.


Being the best You

With years of working in an office environment and playing sand volleyball I felt somewhat healthy but then this pain started creeping in. The pain was randomly becoming more prevalent in my neck and shoulder area as well as my lower back.

Sleeping at night was interrupted by what I thought was stiffness in my back. My tailbone ached when I stood too long. I had shoulder and neck pains that led to getting cricks in my neck. My hips also were becoming tight that while driving in my car or sitting in my office chair was leading to pains. My pains weren't at all 100% of the time yet they were becoming more frequent and more impactful on my life.

I began discussing random pains and techniques to resolve the pain. Spending more and more time (12 months) trying to prevent, recover, rest, massage, OTC, pain meds, hydration, stretching. REPEAT. Then, I bought a new office chair, then less activity, then I discussed buying a new mattress. All efforts just lead me to fewer activities that I normally enjoyed.

Until a personal friend that works with athletes referred me to Dr. Powers. She stated that he could possibly offer some relief in a relatively short time. I made an appointment on that referral immediately.

Dr. Powers advised me that I would feel better fairly quickly honestly, I did to a degree, but not 100%. Dr. Powers also advised that with on-going chiropractic care I could establish long term health improvements. True to his word my pains were all gradually eliminated. I have even returned to doing activities at a caliber that I am happy with and I have no back pains while sleeping in the same bed.

I realized that ever since the beginning of my treatments with Dr. Powers, I have not missed work for allergies/flu which I typically would in the past.

I am optimistic the educational information and the treatments offered by Dr. Powers reinforced the healing ability of my own body. I'm just very pleased with the overall experience. My own loved ones have noticed my improvement and often discuss with me that I should have gone sooner!


Chiropractic and Lifestyle

Way back in 2014 I was referred to see Dr. Powers by my friend Ms. Reynolds. At the time I had a painful and restricting crick in my neck. Turning my head was difficult, as was sitting at my computer since I am a writer/editor.

Due to the severity of the pain and restrict crick in my neck it took longer to heal. Once the crick was gone I felt pretty good.

I believe chiropractic keeps things aligned and working smoothly, most of the time. I'm not so sure about internal medicine.

I am able to walk more with my dog without having constant pain stopping me. During my family gatherings, they have seen my improvement because of how happy I am.

I recommend chiropractic to others all the time. I really do believe that keeping the spine aligned keeps everything else working at its best. I am on maintenance program to keep my body healthy and I do not have plans on stopping my chiropractic treatments.


Putting Me Back Together

Posted: July 11, 2016

I met Dr. Powers when he gave a presentation at the facility where I am presently living. I have never considered trying chiropractic, but I was so impressed with his presentation that I made an appointment.

I consider myself a very active person but after an auto accident last year, I have not been able to be as active as I would have wanted due to over-all pain, stiffness and a broken left wrist.

Visits to my M.D. and supplements were not relieving my symptoms and I just was not feeling my best.

After an exam and consultation with Dr. Powers, I decided to try chiropractic. Within a few weeks of care, I began to feel better and now the pain has been reduced tremendously! I can now walk without support, I am able to sleep better and my posture is so much straighter that my friends and family have noticed and commented on just how much better it is.

I am so happy I met Dr. Powers even though, I was pessimistic that anything would help me feeling better.

I highly recommend him to anyone that is in doubt to be seen by a chiropractor.
