Mary W. - Pinched Nerve

I’ve been seeing chiropractors off and on for 20 years and Dr. Esau has been the absolute BEST doctor! I now realize that I have issues that will benefit from care for the rest of my life and help me age gracefully – and without pain! I strongly encourage anyone in pain to come in to see the wonderful staff here at BFC – Everyone is caring & compassionate and the doctors are brilliant!

My shoulder and arm hurt for months before I came to Brannon Family Chiro. I just woke up one morning with a “crick in my neck” and then I had constant nerve pain from my neck down my arm and into my hand on the right side. I tried many remedies that were completely ineffective: steroids, over the counter medications, massage, yoga, heat and ice packs. It got so bad, that when I had to use a mouse for computer work, it felt like the mouse was shocking me! It was all I could do to fight tears while I typed and tried to ice my arm at the same time!

After being in intense pain for months, I was irritable & exhausted! Both chores and hobbies were too much for me and I put them off until “later, when I feel better”, which never happened. I went to a different chiropractor here in town but got no relief. They gave me adjustments, physical therapy sessions and put me in a machine to stretch my neck. They also sold me a $300 neck brace that I have never tried.

Coming to Brannon Family Chiro was completely life changing! Dr. Esau is the ONLY chiropractor that I’ve seen that studied my x-rays, made measurements and actually showed me what was causing my pain and had a plan to relieve the source of my problem! Her first adjustment helped tremendously, but of course, the body will go back to its bad habits and it took more than one adjustment to get me “straightened out”.

Crystal L. - Mental Outlook

I have experienced low back issues since I was a teenager, but it was neck pain that brought me to see Dr. Lindsay. I was having excruciating stiffness and discomfort and was barely able to turn my head to check traffic while driving. It also affected my shoulders and upper back, and I felt perpetually tense and uncomfortable.

 

Since starting care, I have experienced an incredible amount of relief and enjoyed tremendous positive gains since I walked through the doors of Brannon Family Chiropractic in December 2021. My range of motion is very much improved, and I feel physically good for the first time in years! Since I’ve been coming in for regular adjustments, I have also experienced a boost in overall mental health, and even my digestion is better.

 

I would recommend the amazing staff here at BFC to anyone experiencing similar discomfort. With time, patience, and dedication to a treatment plan, wellness and best possible health are absolutely attainable!

Bailey O. - Stomach "Attacks"

I started coming to Brannon Family Chiropractic less than 6 months ago and it has easily been the best decision I have ever made. After watching me in agonizing pain almost daily, two of my coworkers recommended I see Dr. Lindsay for a consultation. The pains I would feel in my stomach were so intense that I could do nothing but cry. When I would have “an attack”, as I called them, I could not move, stand, walk, or really do anything except sit completely still and cry. Nothing would alleviate my symptoms and it was the most miserable experience ever. I had been in and out of doctor’s offices doing blood work and all kinds of tests trying to figure out what was wrong and how I could manage my symptoms. I was on medication to try and help with my stomach issues, but nothing helped when an “attack” would hit. Before I started coming to Brannon Family Chiropractic, I was convinced that my life was going to be a daily struggle. I had accepted the horrible ways I had been feeling for over two years, even though I was always in an immense amount of pain. I had no idea how much my life would change in the coming months.”

Lisa H. - Quality of Life

“When I started at Brannon Family Chiropractic, my hips were hurting so bad and I had such difficulty walking that I thought I needed 2 hip replacements. By the time I got home at night I could barely make it to feed my cat using a cane and umbrella to make it through the house. Two of my friends were coming to Dr. Lindsay and convinced me to come see her before pursuing surgical options. I had already done everything I could think of to change my lifestyle and it helped a bit, but the pain and mobility issues were still overwhelming.

 

Since my initial visit and x-rays, my life has changed dramatically. I am healthier now than I can remember. Many of my maintenance reports are “no symptoms” since the previous visit and the days I have any pain at all are so infrequent I have trouble recalling them. Dr. Lindsay and the BFC staff are so encouraging and share so much educationally about how to move and how to protect ourselves along with what to do to prevent issues and how to deal with pain when it does appear.

 

The advice I would give to someone with a similar problem is to CALL NOW – don’t hesitate. I can walk fast, run, twirl and do any activities I want without pain or limitation of mobility and I feel like myself again. My personality came back – only I’m better than before since Dr. Lindsay and the BFC family continue to educate me on how to PLAN to live a healthy life, how to be aware when something is a little off, and to call for help and know they will take care of you! Just because you’re not in pain doesn’t necessarily mean you’re healthy; so don’t wait until you are in pain like I did. Life is good and it’s even better when you’re a part of the BFC family because you know they will help you stay on track to enjoy a good life!”

Leslee S. - Anxiety

I’ve dealt with anxiety and depression my entire life. After having my daughter (add lots of new mom concerns and uncertainties) and a job as an educator, my stress and anxiety settled in my neck and shoulders. This created endless headaches and sleep issues. The headaches made me miss out on numerous things and I felt bad all over (mentally and physically). My neck and shoulders became so tight, it affected by posture and overall health.

 

Dr. Lindsay is my miracle worker. I have maintained and continued seeing her because my overall health has improved. My anxiety still exists and depending on life can cause flare ups, but Dr. Lindsay has given me exercises to help relieve the tightness and pressure. I do still get a headache from time to time but other elements factor into it. Overall, I feel so much better.

 

The advice I would give to someone with a similar problem is to seek a physician’s advice, but for me maintaining my bi-monthly visits, talking with Dr. Lindsay about my issues or concerns, and being aware of things I can do to relieve my stress has greatly lowered my anxiety and the physical issues it creates.”

Gabby R. - Migraines

“When I started at Brannon Family Chiropractic, I had migraines that made me light sensitive and nauseous. I would usually have to call in to work or cancel plans and spend the rest of the day in bed.

 

I haven’t had a migraine since I started going to Brannon Family Chiropractic and followed their treatment plan for me. My energy and my posture have improved as well! I call in less and get to spend more time with family and friends. I don’t have to wonder when my next migraine will be.

 

The advice I would give to someone with a similar problem is to give chiropractic care a shot! I had a lot of skeptics in my life that said it wouldn’t help, but I’m so glad that I came to Brannon Family Chiropractic. “

Jennifer C. - Feeling Well Again

“Advice I would give to someone is to follow the treatment plan and try new things. I wasn’t sure the Posture Pump would work, but I tried it and it’s helping significantly! I wasn’t sure about dry needling, but once I started having sessions I realized immediate pain relief and mobility improvement. I wasn’t sure about E-FlamX but I feel better head to toe after starting it. Our providers have your best interest at heart and they’re here to help you move from pain to pain-free.

“It’s hard to pinpoint one problem. I hurt all over and I hurt all the time. I didn’t realize how much I hurt until I didn’t hurt any longer. My range of motion was terrible, I could barely look over my shoulder to back out of parking spaces and personal care activities were challenging. I thought my lower back was the biggest issue but my mid-back and neck were identified as problem areas, too.

I am shocked at how much better I feel, all day every day!
I am able to move freely and easily. I’m driving safely, able to look over my shoulder to check for traffic. My posture is much improved. I’m sleeping better and feeling more positive and less stressed. I have dealt with plantar fasciitis for more than 10 years but after a few sessions of dry needling, I have significant relief from pain. I am able to be active again and am able to walk with my husband.”
