"I use to suffer from constant sinus problems and drainage.  Antibiotics, allergy meds, nasal sprays, etc. were a big part of my life for daily function.  After about a month of chiropractic care I've noticed more improvements and have not had any sinus issues since.  It's a miracle!

I also had to undergo fertility treatments to conceive my 2nd pregnancy (twins!).  I was told by my OB/GYN and fertility specialist that conceiving without help was unlikely, although not impossible.  Well… after seven months of chiropractic care (and no fertility help!) we have another blessing on the way!  Another miracle?

Try it … you have nothing to lose and all to gain, but be patient, nothing happens overnight!"

"I've been coming to the chiropractor for 14 months.  It has been WONDERFUL.  I feel so good.  I am hardly ever sick.  I am 5 months pregnant and feel totally different than I did with my 2year old.  My 2 year old had ear infections for the first 8 months of her life.  We started bringing her when she was 10 months old and she has been so healthy.  She never goes to the medical doctor.  We don't do immunizations either.  She is so healthy!  I am so happy to see how healthy our new baby boy is.  We are very grateful for Chiropractic!  You need to go, you will feel absolutely wonderful."

"In April 2002 I was in an accident, I started going to another chiropractor, but I never really noticed a difference to a change in my neck or back.  Someone referred me to Healing Hands Chiropractic and it has made a huge difference in my life!  The pain is completely gone and I just feel so much better!  I am so glad that I switched chiropractors!  If you can, start going.  It will change your life!"

"My back hurt continually.  I was depressed and unable to do the little things I use to do. Now, I am not in pain like I was before.  I am stronger, I can walk up stairs a lot better, I can play with my grandkids without pain, and my depression is much better.  Overall, I feel better physically and mentally.   

I was very much a doubting Thomas.  It took me at least 6 months or more to tell a real difference.  I am glad I didn't quit!"

"Chiropractic has helped me in many ways.  I have had two children and the birth of both has caused pain in both hips.  For 8 years now, I have been in such pain that it has caused me to put things on hold.  Due to too much pain, I've had sleepless nights and painful days.  One month after coming I am almost pain free, unless there is too much work that I do.  I also, over the summer, messed up my ribs during yard work and could not breathe or move.  Once again I came in and they fixed me right up.  I feel much better after each visit.  I have had some really bad ear problems also due to allergies.  It took a few times to come in and get things worked out, but they fixed everything.  Thanks a lot both of you."

1. Dr. Charmin continues to straighten my back.  I have had scoliosis almost all of my life.  My neck caused me the most discomfort and it is now minimal discomfort.  I also have almost perfect posture.  That was not the case when I first came to her almost nine months ago.

2. With her help I have been able to get off all of my medications.  Ten years ago I was put on Zanax to be able to sleep through the night.  Zanax gave me high blood pressure.  I was put on medication to lower it.  Zanax is addictive and I couldn't get off of it by myself.

3. With the straightening of my back I have better self confidence.  I am enjoying being able to swim better and hope to take up archery again.

4.  I no longer need to go to my family doctor as when symptoms of disease arise, Dr. Charmin is able to make them leave.

Thank you Dr. Charmin, for all you have done for me!

"I don't have back pain anymore.  I can run faster without stopping.  I don't need my inhaler for my breathing.  I have fewer asthma episodes.  I can play basketball better.  Chiropractic helps you maintain a better immune system.  You won't have to pay as many doctor bills for check ups at the hospital."

"I have been under Dr. Charmin and Dr. Ryan's care for five years.  When I first came to them my General Practitioner had me on all different anti-depressants that did nothing but making me feel worse.  I stopped taking all the medications including aspirin.  I have only improved with my depression, also I had really bad allergies that have gotten extremely better.  I rarely ever get sick at all.  Every time my x-rays are taken I have only improved.  I come in once a week.  I take my vitamins and eat as good as I can with working night shifts.  I also do exercises regularly and use my home traction device."

"Chiropractic care has helped:  Get rid of my headaches!  Relieve me of low back pain!  Fix my ribs!  Fix both shoulders!  Adjust my knees!"

"I came in with shoulder pain, neck pain, headaches, numbness in my hands, arms, legs and feet and my hands would hurt.  Now, I no longer have headaches or pains so I am not as short-tempered.  I enjoy life so much more now that I am pain-free!   I also use to have heart palpitations and anxiety attacks all the time.  That doesn't happen anymore!  I use to take ibuprofen for aches and pains.  That doesn't happen anymore!   I use to get sick all the time.  That doesn't happen anymore either!   It is so exciting to know that everything my body needs to stay healthy is already put there by God.   No more headaches, neck aches, heart palpitations, or anxiety attacks!  Life is so much better.
Share this knowledge with everyone you know!  It will change their lives just as it has changed mine!"

"My adventure with a chiropractor started back in 1972.  I had a bad fall at work and they sent me to a chiropractor to get relief from my pain.  I went every week for years and was told I would need adjustments for life.  I have been to three different chiropractors over the years but have never received as much relief from my pain since I have been coming to Healing Hands.  I feel better now than I have felt in years.  I would recommend everyone to seek treatment here.  You have everything to gain and nothing to lose!  Thank you Dr. Charmin Gans."

"When I first started my chiropractic care I was experiencing a lot of lower back pain and headaches.  Since then my lower back pain has gone away.  I don't have headaches as often.  When I do they go away rather quickly without the help of medications like Tylenol, Advil, etc.  Also a credit to chiropractic I broke my finger last year and it took just 5 days to heal.  The doctor who examined me said that he had never seen broken fingers heal that quickly.  I can happily say that I haven't taken any medications in the last 3 years and I feel that chiropractic has helped me immensely.  I try my best to do what my chiropractor wants me to.  Chiropractic has changed my life."

"I have noticed that the (legs, back and neck) pain is gone, I have a greater range of motion, more energy and less colds.  I did not have intense back pain during my pregnancy either."

"Three years ago, I tried to get up and couldn't walk.  The doctor said I had to have my knees replaced.  Not wanting to do this I came to see Drs. Charmin and Ryan Gans.  I'm still working at my job and getting along just fine! I recommend chiropractic care to everyone regardless of your age."

"Initial arrival of this chiropractic office I contended with bouts of panic attacks, chronic anxiety, constant brain fog, detachment of reality, daily upper back pain, etc.  Since age seven, I'd been encumbered by irrational thoughts, fears, which also subsequented in aforementioned symptoms.  Psychiatrists labeled the condition as generalized anxiety disorder.  Those so-called professionals attempted treatment with medications.  Countless failures to say the least.  Over the course of the next ten years, I'd remain drugged without much relief… Severity of my attacks would fluxuate alongside stress.  Potentially, I could have an attack anywhere.  Nowhere to run.  Nowhere to hide.  Next seven years a seeming internal insatiable desire to construct surreal irrationalities which I felt spawned from an abyss of hell.  I would function, that's all, during those years.  

Then, I stumbled through the door of Healing Hands Chiropractic.  Personally, the genuine character expressed by Dr. Ryan and Charmin Gans, especially in reference of professional doctors, is unfounded to date.  I swiftly learned chiropractic methodology is reasonable, practical, and absolutely fail proof.  My bouts of panic attacks are very minimal, my anxiety more so minimal, the brain fog has cleared so much, and for the first time I am ambitiously alive.  My past, the dark times, is now as a horrific confabulation, one gone awry.  I've always requested to encounter someone or something to blissfully alleviate me, thank you."
