I had seen two other chiropractors before going to Dr. Amy Hess, I was very hesitant and skeptical from the information and experience I had from the first two chiropractors. When I went to see Dr. Hess she put me right at ease, not only by her personality but by the environment of the office. You walk in and you're warmly welcomed by Kayla who works the front of the office, the office is very clean and organized. Amy has clearly built her practice to inform and help the community live a healthier and more functional life.
I first sought out chiropractic care when I was in so much pain I was no longer able to run. At the time I was training for a marathon and started to get sharp pains in my back shooting down my leg. After going to my primary care physician I was referred to an orthopedic surgeon due to the degeneration in my lower lumbar, which is uncommon to see in a 24 year old. I was determined to find an alternative "cure" than surgery to get me back to running, and Dr. Hess was the answer.
Dr. Hess has been a blessing; she works with your goals and encourages you to live a healthy life to achieve them. She makes sure you are comfortable with the adjustments she is doing, which none of them are the crazy bending or snapping you would think a chiropractor would do. They are very minor precise, gentle, and relaxing adjustments. If you're afraid of popping noises, like I was, don't let that deter you. The popping is very minor if you can hear it at all.
The most impressive thing to see is how chiropractic care has changed so many peoples' lives in her office. Whether its pain in your neck/back, trouble sleeping, feeling lethargic throughout the day, high cholesterol, or trouble focusing (Amy and her patients could list many more), but if you're having trouble with anything I would schedule an appointment to see how Dr. Hess could improve your quality of living.
* I'm happy to say I'm back to running with NO PAIN :)
