Dr Justin, First of all congratulations on your new child! Very happy and exciting days I am sure and the child will be so blessed with you and Chrissy as parents. I love what you are doing there! I have been meaning to write for now three months, to try somehow to thank you and put into words how much your efforts have changed my life. Before I came to you I could not stand in one spot very long due to lower back pain and numbness of my right leg, could not walk without discomfort and could not sleep except in one very specific position, which of course affected the quality of sleep my wife would get. And being adverse to taking medication, I ramped up my intake of alcohol to at least get me through the first hours of sleep which as we all know is not the best approach but with high hopes of my body taking care of itself, I would just continue to deal with the pain and discord as status quo. I finally came to you. You were careful, knowledgeable and deliberate. Your staff most helpful. It took a few appointments but relief came. Soon the pain subsided, you straightened the vertebrae and my body got a chance to heal correctly. You were perfectly spot on as far as diagnosis and resolution. My back and sciatic have not been better for many, many years. I am now on "light duty" as I just had my appendix out. Prior to that surgery I had a cat scan. I was able to view the cat scan of my vertebrae as that wonderful doctor was showing the inflamed appendix. He made a comment about the vertebrae so I told him how you did miracles to get it as straight as it is. It did indeed look very good to me, compared to the x-rays I had taken before I started treatment with you. I cannot tell you how pleased I am with everything you have done for me. It has been three days since surgery and I am doing quite well in my own opinion but once again, thanks to you, months ago I was able to get back to my (core) exercises and so truly believe that has helped through this recovery. So a glad "Hi!" to everyone there. I miss seeing Marice and Andrea. I hope you are all well. Feel free to use any of this as testimonial or recommendation. I cannot thank you enough! And so many best wishes for your family. Sincerely, Andy.
Mary Ellen's Story
I can not say enough good things about Fife Chiropractic. I have been to several other Chiropractic doctors and although they were all good and brought some relief, this group at Fife Chiropractic are by far the best I have been to bar none. First of all they talk to you and find out what your concerns are and what you feel you need to have fixed. They They go to work at putting things back into place. They have offered me nutritional information that even my regular doctors have not mentioned. I find the folks at Fife take their time with you and talk to you every time you come in. They seem to care and you are just not another patient.
The best way to describe my turn around after seeing Dr. Chrissy is nothing short of amazing. I had been sick with severe GI issues, constant tension headaches, mind fogginess, low back pain and exhaustion. I have been diagnosed with all sorts of conditions over the past three years and given medication after medication, which never seemed to live up to hype behind them. I finally found the office of Dr. Chrissy thanks to my brother and my life was forever changed. She took the time to listen to my countless stories of illness and pain which all stemmed from my deployment to Afghanistan. She immediately found that I was suffering from a haital hernia and promptly helped me fix it. From that day forward my GI issues started to calm down. I wasn't out of the woods but at least I could eat and not have gut wrenching pains within twenty minutes of eating out. She also recommended that I take a serious look at food intolerances and allergies. We decided to have a blood test done to evaluate what types of foods I couldn't tolerate or was allergic to and I was shocked at the results. In my endeavor to eat healthy I was using almond milk, almond butter, and eating handfuls of almonds in my yogurt every day. Come to find out, almonds are the one thing I am most allergic to. I also had intolerances to yogurt, whey, yeast and several other items. Dr. Chrissy then recommended I do a cleanse to help flush my system. Cleanses are not my favorite thing to do and I find them hard to stick to and make me miserable while on them. Yet, I decided to give it a go. I found the Standard Process Purification Program simple to follow and I just prepped my foods head of time and stayed dedicated till the end. I completed my cleanse and have lost 16lbs and 8 inches total! Never in my wildest dreams did I think that for once my food consumption could so drastically effect my weight. I am so thankful for the cleanse and I have a new appreciation for what foods are really healthy and clean. After three years of issues, it feels wonderful to be able to see my hard work pay off in weight loss, increased energy, reduced cravings, significantly less headaches, and I'm able to think more clearly. Dr. Chrissy stuck with me through the whole process and helped me find the true underlying condition that was ruining my life. Thank you Dr. Chrissy for giving me my life back!
For about a year and a half, I was attributing all my aches and pains to aging and menapause after I turned 50. I finally had xrays taken by my medical doctor who diagnosed me with sponylolytis, osteo penia and eneven leg lengths. I was so stiff in the mornings and the back pain never went away. I had very little energy but just thought that was the way it was always going to be.
WOW!! I have made so many improvements in my health this year. My chiropractor, Dr. Chrissy Blair has guided me in many directions other than spinal adjustments, such as acupuncture, structural relief therapy, massage, B.E.S.T. and nutrition response testing. Today I am feeling better than ever, mind, body and spirit! Dr. Chrissy has changed my life for the better. She has a very caring personality as well as being an excellent and intuitive chiropractor. She makes me feel that she truly care about my well being. I feel 15 years younger!!!
I came to Fife Chiropractic because I wanted to find out if their nutritional consultation would help my overall health. After 10 weeks my excema that I have fought for 3 years is gone and I am feeling better. I am sleeping better and feel better overall.
I have arthritis in my spine and a bulging disc. Before I came in a month ago I would wake up in so much pain that I couldn't get up to use the restroom without taking serious pain medications. I would have to keep taking the medications throughout the work day to keep the pain at a manageable level.
Since I started chiropractic care about a month ago, I have been able to stop taking the pain medications on a daily basis. I was originaly afraid to start this type of care, now my only regret is not doing it sooner.
The doctor's at Fife Chiropractic and Health Awareness are the best. They treat the whole body and treat each person as an individual. I am so thankful for the care I have received here. I will definitely be a client here for life! Thanks Doc's!
My problems when I came in...
The first day I came into Fife Chiro, all I really cared about was getting my first adjustment. Just days before I had been in the ER with muscle spasms in my neck and left shoulder, with pains down my left arm. On the next day I had gone to an Urgent Care for yet more drugs to dull the pain. By the time I came into Fife Chiro, I was a bundle of tight muscles just anticipating the next spasm to hit. I had developed a cough from the pain medication and was a mess, just waiting for my first adjustment. Although Dr. Justin was trying to do the first exam and be as pleasant as possible, I would have nothing of it. I just wanted my first adjustment! I ended up seeing Dr. Chrissy and my first impression of her was that she was very pleasant and professional, even though I was in a negative state. We talked about my situation and how I had been experiencing lower back pain for 6 years and the neck pain was recent and much more painful. I explained how I have tried everything to cure the lower back pain from shoe inserts, physical therapy, other chiropractors, massage, acupuncture but nothing had helped. My thought was this was my last stop before the "knife". I determined in short order that Dr. Chrissy is one of the most caring, thoughtful, and all about returning the patient to a wellness state type of person. She did end up giving me my first adjustment with the Activator that day. She spends time to educate the patient and as well as giving ideas for curing body ailments. When on the first weekend of treatment your doctor (Dr. Chrissy) gives you her cell phone number in case you need to contact her, believe me you have a keeper! I've never called her on her cell, but have this as my "ace in the hole" which gives me peace of mind.
As time has gone by (two months), I have grown to believe my first impressions were correct. Dr. Chrissy has taught me about chiropractic and how professionsals with knifes and pain pills should be avoided. She is a very intelligent woman and is always right. I repeat always right, I have learned that the hard way. She has been able to cure the pinched nerve in my neck with her adjustments and my lower back is still in treatment on the decompression table. I am told though that she sees much improvement! When I came into Fife I had six months of sleeping in a recliner every night, many pain pills and muscle relaxers, tons of ice packs and many days of sick leave from work. Now for the last two weeks I have been able to sleep in my own bed, no more arm and neck pains, very few (if any) pain pills, and very little sick leave from work.
Dr. Chrissy is not the only super star in this office. They have an office full of staff who genuinely care about each patient's health and well being. I don't have to fake a smile anymore, it's for real and my body is on the mend. Thank you Dr. Chrissy and the staff at Fife Chiropractic!!
