It&#39;s also been tough trying to find a well respected excellent chiropractor with my hectic work schedule. So to start my review:<br /> <br /> <em><strong>Dr. Powers is amazing.</strong></em><br /> <br /> He is genuinely kind-hearted and wants to help the community&#39;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, <em><strong>I can feel the improvements</strong></em>. 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. <em><strong><em><strong>Doesnt</strong></em> matter if you are young and fit, or need care at an elderly age</strong></em>, I highly recommend him!</p> Total Knee Recovery http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2019/03/26/total-knee-recovery/ Tue, 26 Mar 2019 14:56:41 -0400 <p>My experience was and is life changing. <strong><em>I was scheduled for a total knee replacement when I first saw Dr. Powers.</em></strong> I didn&#39;t really know what chiropractic care was, and he made no promises about my knee.</p> <p>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.</p> <p><em><strong>I </strong></em><em><strong>cancelled</strong></em><em><strong> my surgery. </strong></em></p> <p>It is still a bad knee, but is tolerable thanks to his treatment. The rest of me moves so much better that<strong><em> I really wish I had gone to a Chiropractor decades ago.</em></strong> But then I wouldn&#39;t be Dr. Power&#39;s patient today. I am <strong><em>SO grateful for his skill and care</em></strong>. The office and staff are very comfortable. I highly recommend Powers Family Wellness.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Carrell</p> Transformed my life http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2019/03/26/transformed-my-life/ Tue, 26 Mar 2019 14:52:56 -0400 <p>I am a disabled veteran with a pinched nerve and herniated disc in my upper cervical.<em><strong> For over five years I suffered in chronic pain </strong></em>and could not sleep, could not run, could not even lift up my four-year-old daughter and <em><strong>this injury was taking a tremendous toll on my well-being and life. </strong></em></p> <p>I was referred to <strong><em>Dr. Powers who has tremendously transformed my well-being to a more manageable life</em></strong>. My experience with Dr. Powers and his staff has been all but the best treatment, services and customer service experience.</p> <p><em><strong>After a few weeks of </strong></em><em><strong>treatment</strong></em><em><strong> I was able to actually get a full nights rest</strong></em>, increasing my daily productivity as well as return back to physical training to support the adjustments.</p> <p>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<strong><em> take on chiropractic treatment and experience your power </em></strong><strong><em>being</em></strong><strong><em> turned on!</em></strong> Thank you to Dr. Powers and his staff for transforming my life!</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Eric</p> I have nothing to lose.. http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2019/03/26/i-have-nothing-to-lose/ Tue, 26 Mar 2019 14:04:25 -0400 <p>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.</p> <p>When each shoulder was frozen,<em><strong> there were so many things I couldnât do!</strong></em> Iâve had a slouch my whole life that affected how people saw me and how I saw myself.</p> <p>I have been through acupuncture, yoga, physical therapy, pilates, and strength training. Anything to prevent the latest frozen shoulder. (None of it worked!)</p> <p><em><strong>Having nothing to lose, I decided to try chiropractic.</strong></em></p> <p>I felt better after a couple of adjustments but <em><strong>once I saw my x-rays after 3 months of treatment, I was a believer!</strong></em></p> <p>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<em><strong> affected my life tremendously by giving me an increase in </strong></em><em><strong>self confidence</strong></em><em><strong>.</strong></em></p> <p>Others donât 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.</p> <p>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.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">Renee</p> Symptoms only getting worse.. http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2019/03/26/symptoms-only-getting-worse/ Tue, 26 Mar 2019 13:59:46 -0400 <p class="MsoNormal" style="text-indent:.5in"><span style="font-size:14.0pt; line-height:107%">My good friend Jack referred me to Powers Family Chiropractic.<span style="mso-spacerun:yes"> </span>He had been coming there for years.<o:p></o:p></span></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:14.0pt;line-height:107%">I was experiencing neck, mid back, lower back pain, and stiffness.

In less than a week I was going to have another back surgery.</strong></em></p> <p>The back surgery was intended to relieve the severe back pain I was experiencing by surgically implanting neuroelectrodes along my spine.

It had been getting so bad that <em><strong>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.</strong></em></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14px;">I tried everything; physical therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, orthopedic doctors, and my general practitioner. Nothing helped.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14px;">I finally came to Powers Family Wellness and started my spinal corrective care with Dr. Powers. <em><strong>Wow! What a difference!</strong></em> Iâve noticed lots of positive changes in my health since Iâve received care here. I feel significantly less pain and stiffness, I sleep better, <em><strong>my quality of life has vastly improved and I am no longer dependent on pain meds!</strong></em></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14px;">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.</span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14px;">CarolynÂ</span></span></p> Being the best You http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2017/11/15/being-the-best-you/ Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:42:34 -0500 <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">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.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">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. <em><strong>My pains weren&#39;t at all 100% of the time yet they were becoming more frequent and more impactful on my life.</strong></em></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">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 justÂlead me to fewer activities that I normally enjoyed.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">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.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">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. <em><strong>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.</strong></em></span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">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.</span></span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">I am optimistic the educational information and the treatments offered by Dr. Powers reinforced the healing ability of my own body. I&#39;m just very pleased with the overall experience. My own loved ones have noticed my improvement and often discuss with me that <em><strong>I should have gone sooner!</strong></em></span></span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Amy</span></span></p> Chiropractic and Lifestyle http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2017/11/15/chiropractic-and-lifestyle/ Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:39:21 -0500 <p><span style="font-size:14px;">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.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;">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.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;">I believe<strong><em> chiropractic keeps things aligned and working smoothly</em></strong>, most of the time. I&#39;m not so sure about internal medicine.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;">I am able to walk more with my dog without having constant pain stopping me. During my family gatherings, <em><strong>they have seen my improvement because of how happy I am</strong></em>.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;">I recommend chiropractic to others all the time. I really do<em><strong> believe that keeping the spine aligned keeps everything else working at its best</strong></em>. I am on maintenance program to keep my body healthy and I do not have plans on stopping my chiropractic treatments.</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:14px;">PatsyÂ</span></p> Putting Me Back Together http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2016/07/11/auto-accident-left-me-with-pain-all-over-stiff-and-a-broken-left-wrist/ Mon, 11 Jul 2016 17:37:48 -0400 <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size:14px;">I met D<img alt="" src="https://powerswellness.com/uploads/DSC02091.jpg" style="height: 175px; float: left; width: 117px; margin-left: 15px; margin-right: 15px;" />r.

Within a few weeks of care, I began to feel better and <strong><em>now the pain has been reduced tremendously!</em></strong> 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.</span></p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size:14px;">I am so happy I met Dr. Powers even though, I was pessimistic that anything would help me feeling better.</span></p> <p><span style="font-size:14px;">I highly recommend him to anyone that is in doubt to be seen by a chiropractor.</span></p> <p style="text-align: center;"><span style="font-size:16px;">AliceÂ</span></p> Learning to Heal http://www.powerswellness.com/blog/our-patient-testimonies/2016/05/09/dealing-with-stress-from-work-and-lupus/ Mon, 09 May 2016 14:22:36 -0400 <p class="MsoNormal"><img alt="" src="https://powerswellness.com/uploads/lupus.jpg" style="width: 245px; height: 350px; float: right; margin-left: 15px; margin-right: 15px;" /></p> <p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="line-height: 107%;">I have been very blessed by the opportunity of meeting Dr. Powers at an AARP Fair.

I am more than happy with the care I have been getting, and with the friendliness and helpfulness of the office staff. <em><strong>They have accommodated my work schedule and worked with my insurance so that my treatment has been affordable</strong></em>. I have been bragging on Powers Family Wellness Center to everyone I know.</span></p> <p>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.</p> <p>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 31<sup>st</sup>, 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 2<sup>nd</sup>, 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.</p> <p>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 <em><strong>my General Practitioner (who specializes in sports medicine) told me it usually takes up to 6 months of recover </strong></em><em><strong>form</strong></em><em><strong> an injury like mine. I believe Dr. Powers treatment had MUCH to do with my quick recovery.</strong></em></p>
