I had a disorder called facet syndrome. For three to four years it was causing extreme low back pain, pain in my upper thigh, and upper arm pain. I tried cortisone injections in my lower back, acupuncture and physical therapy with no results. I even tried methadone to decrease my pain. I finally decided to try chiropractic after trying everything else. After going to another chiropractor and not getting results, I had doubts that chiropractic could help me. Dr. Covey did a thorough examination to see if he could help me. He showed me my problem on the x-rays and told me he was confident he could help. The positive attitudes of the doctors and staff and their willingness to listen gave me a great impression of the Natural Way office. After the first three sessions I was able to stand and walk for more than 5-10 minutes, and now I am virtually pain-free. I have told many,many others about Natural Way Chiropractic now. They gave me back my life. I was told I would end up I a wheel chair as a cripple by doctors at the University.
Thank you Natural Way Chiropractic!
For about three years I was having sharp shooting pain in my neck, upper back, low back and hips. I was also having migraines and insomnia. I was having some serious problems! My M.D. prescribed muscle relaxants for the pain and physical therapy for a short time. The muscle relaxants kept me unable to perform my normal activities while I was on them. I tried chiropractic after being screened at the Seattle Home Show and Dr. Hansen called me and suggested we start treatment. I had tried physical therapy and medications help, but neither helped me recover. So, I gave it a try though I was pretty sure it was quack medicine and would surely hurt me. Having never been to a chiropractor, I didn’t know what to expect. My first impression of the office was very impressive. Dr. Hansen gave me a very pleasant and unpainful experience. Plus, his office staff was very helpful and friendly. After the first adjustment, the Dr. Hansen gave me stretches to do to loosen up my spine so I would get the most benefit from each adjustment. I started to feel improvement within the first few adjustments. My headaches went away and my flexibility returned. My husband also had pain related to a car accident he had and chiropractic helped improve his low back pain. I have told my coworkers and friends to go in for a chiropractic consult. I am extremely grateful for having done chiropractic for the last 6 years. For the first time, I feel terrific like a 20-something instead of an eighty something and not yet 40. Thank you Natural Way Chiropractic!
I have suffered from Crohn’s Disease for the past four years. It gave me poor digestion and as a result, I lost weight and got anemia. One of my family members suggested I try chiropractic. At first I was skeptical, but I am always about new things. I had been to a chiropractor before for sports, but that was about it.
My first impression of the office and the doctors was positive. It all seemed very organized and professional. The doctor taught me how to eat right and pay attention to the small things. The results were felt right away. Two years later my Crohn’s is still stable. If I could make a suggestion to others who are sick, suffering, or in pain it would be to give chiropractic a try. It couldn’t hurt. I have told many people about chiropractic, my friends, family, and anyone who would listen. I feel chiropractic helped me get through some tough times and for that I am very grateful.
Thank you Natural Way Chiropractic,
As a young woman I could not understand why I was suffering so much. I was having severe neck pain, headaches, and back pain every day. I was taking ibuprofen, Excedrin and similar products to cover up the pain but nothing helped. My family encouraged me to try chiropractic. I had tried chiropractic 3 or 4 years ago, but I stopped going before I could experience any of the results. Since I was so tired of being in pain I gave Natural Way Chiropractic a shot. They were very friendly, very supportive, and very patient with my frustrated attitude.
For the first few weeks I was coming in 3 times a week. It took some time but I did start to notice a difference.
The doctors kept reassuring me that true healing takes time, and fortunately for me, this time I stuck with it. It is nice to feel and function better! I now feel great and recommend you stick with it to see results!
Thank you Natural Way Chiropractic!
I could feel the bones in my lower back grinding together and had severe pain in my lower spine that was like an electrical shock when I bent over or moved too quickly. It was constant and very debilitating. The only relief I got was when I was asleep.I tried to just keep active and ignore the pain, believing in the long run activity would help.
I had no previous treatment before I came to Natural Way. I never tried any drugs. I just toughed it out with a glass of wine and some relaxation, but it wasn’t working.I had an ex-girlfriend who came in for treatment frequently and who spoke well of Natural Way. I had never tried chiropractic before and was skeptical that it could help me. I just did not want to go to a medical doctor about my back pain. I think drugs and surgery should be a last resort.
My first impression of the doctor was very friendly and professional. The office ran smoothly and was a very well run operation.At first, I was seen 5 days a week. Then my care was gradually reduced and now I am at once a week.My pain improved after about 4 months of treatment. All the sharp pain is now gone with some residual pain left occasionally.
I would recommend that anyone get a check up for their spine at Natural Way Chiropractic. I personally have recommended half a dozen friends to them. I can definitely see the benefit now. It beats the heck out of the alternatives!
Thanks Natural Way Chiropractic!
After an accident at work 8 years ago, I was left with lower and upper back pain. It was to the point that I had constant numbness and tingling in my right leg with pain radiating throughout. I was in pain everyday. I tried Acupressure, which did very little. I tried Acupuncture, which did nothing. Massages, six weeks of physical therapy, and two epidurals later, I had no luck. I even tried chiropractic care, which had resulted in increased pain. Eventually, it all led me to getting a discectomy. But, in the end I still had pain.
I decided to try chiropractic again, but reluctantly so as I was afraid that I would be in greater discomfort like the last time. I had come to a point in my life where I had to do anything to get better. I was tired of watching from the sidelines.
Until my visit with Natural Way Chiropractic nothing worked. I had thoughts of wasting my money without the results. I walked in to Natural Way Chiropractic to be greeted by 3 women smiling at me, and saying "nice to see you today." It was obvious that it was busy, but very evident that it was a well oiled machine, I could tell immediately they had a great organized system in place.
To be quite honest, Dr. Covey’s first recommendation was to not work on me at all the first day. Dr Covey made a suggestion to me that he would like to take the results from the tests and x-rays home that night to review before working on me. At first I was disappointed because I was hoping to get relief. But, as I drove home that night I recall thinking "What a concept. Someone to take the time to understand my pain and suffering, to listen to my goals, and to get back to me the next day with a plan."
The day Dr. Covey worked on me I had a lot of pain in my lower back and had trouble sitting for any length of time. My right leg would not extend fully. My mobility was significantly reduced and I had a hard time concentrating at work because of it. I recall Dr. Covey explaining that it would take a commitment from the office and myself to get my life back to normal. In addition to the chiropractic care, I would have to loose weight, eat healthier, and change my lifestyle a little. After agreeing with Dr. Covey’s plan, he proceeded to work on me. When he was done, he helped me get of the bench and I thanked him for his time. I recall walking down the hall and thinking to myself "there is no pain." I turned around and walked back down the hall, looked him square in the eyes, shook his hand and said "thank you, I don’t remember the last time I didn’t have pain in my body."
My pain has disappeared and continued to do so for the next ½ hour that day. I realized that it wouldn’t be gone forever with treatment, but it was a fantastic start. I will continue to see Dr. Covey 3 times a week.Take the time to consult with Natural Way Chiropractic. You must realize there is no quick and easy way to relieve your pain. Take the time. Force yourself to have the patience and care your body needs. It is ultimately up to you to say whether or not Natural Way Chiropractic has the system, tools, professionalism, and personal care to help you live without discomfort.
I have told many a person about chiropractic. I want everyone to have the freedom that I am beginning to have. I accepted pain, as part of my life, now I know that I don’t have to.
Thanks Natural Way Chiropractic!
For the past few years, I had been suffering with ear and headaches. My jaw would pop and click when eating, yawning, and even brushing my teeth.The pain was son and off every day. I would often wake at night in pain. My M.D. had prescribed antibiotics, which were of no relief. I was fitted with a mouth guard by my dentist to protect my teeth from gnashing.
I had been to a chiropractor previously for low back pain from a ski injury. It helped with the problems I was experiencing.I had many doubts that chiropractic would help, but since the other options I had tried were not working, I decided to try chiropractic again. After being in severe pain for over a year, I came to see Dr. Hansen. The staff was positive and encouraging. Within about 5 months I was feeling unbelievably better!
Chiropractic works! You just have to be patient with the process and stick to it even when you feel better!
Thanks Natural Way Chiropractic!
When I went in to see Dr. Sheen, I had numbness and weakness in my right hand and shoulder. After one week of care my numbness was gone and I had more strength in my hand. In two weeks my hand and arm became normal, also I started to notice that my lower and upper back had no pain. My flexibility
was coming back being that I do a lot of lifting at work. The greatest thing is that I used to take two Aleve tablets everyday to get through the day and as of today I do not have to take any.
Saved From Surgery!
I was told that I needed surgery in both wrists to cure the numbness I was experiencing. I decided to try chiropractic treatment and was drawn to Natural Way Chiropractic of Ferndale. In only took a matter of a month and the numbness was all but gone. In addition I no longer need to take medication for the pain I was experiencing in my neck from the arthritis I have. Dr. Allen saved me from a surgery that I really wasn't looking forward to. In addtion, I see these treatments as an adjunct to the treatment of the stiffness I experience from my Parkinson's. Thank you Dr, Allen and the wonderful staff of Natural Way Chiropractic of Ferndale.
I have seen a couple other chiropractors in the past 10 years and I was completely blown away about Natural Way Chiropractic and staff's ability to help me with any of my concerns...this office is very friendly, affordable and has the best service. If you want a "old school chiropractor" with old technology then this is not the place...this office has all the up to date technology to come up with the true diagnoses and no guessing about what is happening with your health like I have experienced with other doctors offices. I have recommended several of my friend’s to Natural Way Chiropractic and they all have had great results. Thank you Dr. and Staff at Natural Way.
Dr. Sheen and his staff are the best. They are very friendly. Dr Sheen takes time to explain the process and makes sure you are comfortable during each step of the process, and is willing to take the time to answer any questions you may have. This is great in an era of 5 min Dr. visits.
A great chiropractic office!!
This was the most friendly and organized chiropractic office I have been in. I have seen many chiropractors in the past 10 yrs and Dr. Sheen and staff were really concerned with my problems. Finally after 5 yrs of back pain and headaches, Dr. Sheen was able to get rid of them...I have now gone 1 yr with out pain, thank you.
I had been living with severe neck pain, left leg pain, and right hip pain for 20-30 years, but due to my husband’s negative experience with an osteopath many years ago, I was afraid to try chiropractic. The pain continued to get worse, but drugs and surgery were not the answer I wanted.
When I met Dr. Covey he explained many things, including how chiropractic is different than osteopathy. This made me more comfortable and willing to try chiropractic.
After a computer scan, x-rays, and a complete exam, Dr. Covey sat me down and explained what it would take to fix my spine problems. I was amazed that after ONE adjustment, my neck felt 100% better! But, I knew I wasn’t finished, there was still a lot of work to do. After 3 months my legs and hips were 80% better and improving. My daughter is also under care and doing wonderful. I’ve told everyone who will listen how great chiropractic is. Why did I wait so long?
