Learning to Heal

Posted: May 9, 2016
By: Kristen

I have been very blessed by the opportunity of meeting Dr. Powers at an AARP Fair. Little did I know that on that day my life would forever change but for the good of my body and soul. 10 years later, I still go up to see him three times a week to help me with my daily stresses of my life, as a teacher and dealing with Lupus.

Dr. Powers treated me through two broken feet, torn muscles in my rib cage, and broken ribs. My lupus has calmed down to the point of only having to take 1 pill a day.

Dr. Powers has shown me how to treat my body using natural products of the earth. He has shown me that my body can learn to heal itself if I just take care of it and make it do the job for which it was created to do.

Chronic Knee and Back Pain

A health fair was taking place at my work, I was curious to see which business were there. Little did I know I would be signing up to be checked by a chiropractor for the chronic knee and back pain I was dealing with. My weight did not help my pain either.

I knew my weight was preventing me from having an active lifestyle that I wanted to enjoy with my family. I had already tried numerous visits to doctors and specialists seeking a quick and easy fix for the pain.

After a month at Dr. Powers office I started to feel a difference. The pain has lessened, I have been able to pursue exercises and my fitness goals. Receiving adjustments by Dr. Powers has helped me in my weight loss and the chronic knee and back pain. I am able to spend more quality time with my family now that I am more physically active and my family is as well. We are enjoying various activities together. We are able to go on frequent hikes all over the Austin area. We now participate in 5k and 10k races and training for a half marathon.

I would absolutely recommend chiropractic care!

It is a non-invasive way to get relief and help you attain your fitness goals.

Unable to stand up straight

Posted: February 8, 2016

I am a new patient of Dr. Powers- I have only been seeing him since August, 2015 . I am more than happy with the care I have been getting, and with the friendliness and helpfulness of the office staff. They have accommodated my work schedule and worked with my insurance so that my treatment has been affordable. I have been bragging on Powers Family Wellness Center to everyone I know.

Dr. Powers reviewed my course of treatment with me Wednesday, October 28 and to my delight (and honestly, somewhat to my surprise), I had made progress that was clearly visible in my x-rays and in before/after photos. Because of my progress we agree to cut back treatment from 3 times a week to 2 times a week.

On Friday, October 30, it rained and my house flooded. I spent Friday evening moving boxes of books and furniture (I had recently moved, and had not yet unpacked). Saturday the 31st, I couldnt stand up straight. I was bent over at the waist at a right angle. Fortunately, I was not in pain when I sat, or lay down, only when I tried to stand up. When I saw the Dr. Powers in the morning of Monday the 2nd, I was still bent over. As a result, I saw him two times A DAY for the entire week, and after that he continued to see me 3 times a week (instead of the 2 times we had agreed on earlier) for the rest of November.

After a short while I started feeling better. I was able to get back to twice a week Tai Chi classes in December. I had my annual physical the first week of December, and my General Practitioner (who specializes in sports medicine) told me it usually takes up to 6 months of recover form an injury like mine. I believe Dr. Powers treatment had MUCH to do with my quick recovery.
