A Phone Book Discovery

When I was in my twenties I was diagnosed with scoliosis. The pain was all the time, and made doing my job as a dental assistant difficult. I tried taking Tylenol and Ibuprofen to alleviate the pain. But all that did was cause stomach pain. I discovered AFC in the phone book, and decided to give it a try. When I first walked into the office, I felt at peace. All of the staff were friendly, courteous, professional, competent, and attentive. It really was a relaxing atmosphere. They fit me in right after a car accident I had just been in 20 minutes prior. Dr. Milo recommended stretching exercises, massage therapy, eating healthier and drinking more water. He said this would help my body hold my adjustments longer. Since coming regularly, I have noticed less inflammation and pain. I don’t stress when I get injured or hurt because, I know I have a great provider. Because of AFC, I didn’t have to undergo any corrective surgery for my scoliosis. They are simply amazing. Your spine controls everything; you should take care of it. I recommend getting chiropractic care regularly, just like you would the dentist.

After Two Months of Pain Thought I Would Try Something New

I thought this was something I was going to have to live with. I had suffered from a bout of Whiplash. The burning, aching in my neck was constant. I tried everything I could think of including massage, hot showers, muscle relaxers and physical therapy. Nothing seemed to help. After about two months of constant pain, I thought I would try something new.

Although I had never been to a chiropractor before I figured I would give it a try. My first impression of Advanced Family Chiropractic was good. I was a little afraid for my first visit and adjustment but Dr. Liebing did so much to alleviate any fears I had. From explaining to me what he was going to do throughout the whole process to physically showing me how the “gun” doesn’t hurt. After my first adjustment I just knew that I was going to be ok.

Seeing the benefits and results that I have had from chiropractic care, I now tell everyone I know. My husband is under care as well as a lot of my friends and their families. Not only do I now feel safe here at Advanced Family Chiropractic but I see how chiropractic is a way of life. I was told that I was going to have to wear a lift to straighten me out but it turns out all I needed was a great CHIROPRACTOR!!!

This is Something I Thought I had to Live With

I have dealt with hip and back pain since I was 13 years old. When I was younger I had to wear ankle and foot braces. Whenever its cold outside my pain gets worse. I had my bad days and my good days. On bad days, I would take some ibuprofen which seemed to mask the pain. I tried everything I could think of physical therapy, massage therapy and at home stretches but they all led nowhere. The pain was still constant and I thought to myself “Welp this is something I’m going to have to live with”.

While at work one day I signed up for a free chair massage event. After that event I signed up to come into the Advanced Family Chiropractic for a complementary exam and x-rays. I figured there was no harm in coming in and seeing what they said. Little did I know that that day would change my life forever! I had my doubts about seeing a chiropractor because I thought if it was something that my normal doctor thought would help then why didn’t they refer me before.

I came in for my exam and after my first adjustment I felt so much lighter! I didn’t realize how heavy my neck was. I immediately was able to walk without feeling stiff for the first time in twelve years. I was very impressed with how personable the office is and how extremely transparent the doctors are. All my questions got answered without hesitation. With me continuing on my treatment plan, I now go weeks without pain, I can play with my daughter without hunching over, I can garden, I can exercise and focus on work now pain free. My quality of life has increased tremendously in all aspects.

Coming into Advanced Family Chiropractic has opened my eyes to the benefits of chiropractic. Without a doubt I will be continuing and letting everyone I know hear about my experience and how they should experience chiropractic care also.

16 Years to Life

I have been a patient for over 16 years!! My journey with Chiropractic care started when I was seventeen years old. I had many problems with my hips that caused so much discomfort. Luckily I worked at a coffee shop right next to a chiropractic office, so I gave them a shot! Going into my first visit I did not know what to expect until the doctor (who was the owner before Dr.Milo) sat me down and explained everything. He prepared me on what he was planning on doing, what to expect and my results. After the first visit I was in pain and relied on ice that night. The doctor then had me on a treatment plan that I followed throughout the years, I understood the importance of coming in.

I went to college and when I came back there was new faces in the office, I was thinking in my head what the heck! I found out the office was now bought out by Dr. Milo. Once I met him I knew I was in good hands. Dr. Milo treated me through both pregnancies and treated my children as well. He treated me through any obstacle I had and was always able to get me in right away.

When I started roller derby I came in every other week and used chiropractic for everything! My body tells me when I need it. I enjoy all the benefits that chiropractic care gives, and share the value of it with my teammates who now also come in! If I had to do a budget cut, coming to Advanced Family Chiropractic would be one of the last thing I cut off. I am faithful to my body and know that it needs Chiropractic care to maintain my health.

"Have You Seen a Chiropractor?"

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Milo’s since September 2014. I had been experiencing low back pain, but thought it was just normal. It was my Pilates instructor who asked me if I’d been to a chiropractor and recommended I call Dr. Milo’s office. I had always been skeptical about chiropractic care and didn’t even think I needed it. However, I trusted her professional opinion and recommendation and thought it couldn’t hurt to at least go for a consultation.

I was impressed with how thorough the initial consultation was, including X-rays and a treatment plan. The X-rays spoke for themselves - no wonder I was having back pain! I agreed to go through the treatment plan and was amazed at how my pain subsided and my body moved differently. As I continued to notice the benefits of chiropractic care, I started bringing my children in as well.

Over the last couple years, chiropractic care has played a significant role in maintaining my active lifestyle. Dr. Milo has treated me through several injuries, at times coordinating treatment with my physical therapist. My challenging injuries have also presented opportunities to test out the latest technology and treatments that Dr. Milo is constantly bringing to his practice.

My family and I have always felt comfortable with Dr. Milo and his staff - my children even ask to see him now! It is also important to me that they work directly with my insurance, relieving me of the task of submitting my own claims.

I have confidently referred numerous people to Dr. Milo over the last few years. Now I’m the one asking “have you seen a chiropractor?”

My Joy For Living Has Been Restored

On May 18, 2017 my life got turned upside down in the blink of an eye. On that day I was in a bad car accident and when you’re in a car wreck you’re lucky to walk away alive. It took a while to feel the effects of the accident but when it did boy did it come full force. I went to the ER and diagnosed with Whiplash and a concussion. While in the ER I felt like I was just being shuffled around with no help. The only thing they did for me was give me some Ibuprofen and sent me on my way. I hated taking them because of how they made me feel. I felt like I was having an outer body experience but the pain was so bad that it affected every aspect of my life. I couldn’t move my neck for 5 months and had constant headaches, dizziness, vision changes and mood swings. Nothing was helping.

I had previously went to a chiropractor in the summer of 2017. The doctor was nice but he didn’t do anything for me. He “popped” my neck once and it was one of the most excruciating things I’ve ever felt in my life. After that I was like nope that’s it I’m not doing this ever again.

My quality of life was diminishing due to the pain I was experiencing. I couldn’t sleep, I was in a bad mood at work, I had depression issues and couldn’t enjoy life. I was in so much pain that I thought to myself I’m desperate I need to try something.

With me being at my whit’s end with all the pain I decided to talk to a coworker. She knew the experience I had previously had but suggested I go see her chiropractor. I called Advanced Family Chiropractic and got an appointment. I told my coworker and come to find out that wasn’t even the place she had sent me. I had called them by accident but I was going to try them anyways. I came into the office for my appointment with a bad attitude and not really open to the idea of being treated. Anytime the tech or doctor would say something in my head I was like “yeah whatever”, ‘sure”. I thought to myself what are you going to do some hokey pokey magic, rub some oils on me and say I’m cured. I really didn’t care to give what they were saying any thought. When I met with Dr Milo I told him that I didn’t want to be touched, I didn’t want my neck touched nothing. He was very understanding to my needs. As the visit went on, I was impressed with the in depthness of the exam, x-rays and assessment given to me. I never had that at the other office so I was like wow this is great. Then came treatment time. The thought of someone touching my neck made me want to cry but I was amazed at how gentle the treatment was.

After a few visits, I started feeling like my old self again and I started looking forward to coming to the office because of the results I was seeing. I feel like a new person and started doing things I never thought would be possible. Because of treatment I feel like I have my life back. Not only am I sleeping better but I ran my first 5K, I hiked Badger Mountain which I haven’t been able to do in quite a while, I went back to the gym and lifted weights for an hour and get this SIGNED UP FOR MY FIRST BLOOMSDAY RACE. Never in my life would I think I would be able to do all these things again. I had given up hope but now I am so hopeful and excited and can’t wait to do things I never thought I would.

My feelings for chiropractic care has changed dramatically. I am now beyond happy and feel excited and hopeful for the future. My joy of living has been restored.

If I could sum up this office in a few words I would say SMILE MAKERS. I feel like this office cares about their patients and the chiropractic care they give restores people’s joy and gives them hope.

"Ironic Chain of Events"

I was at work one day and saw this email going around about a massage event being hosted at my office. I thought, “sure I would like a massage”, so I put my name down on the list. I had no idea at that point how Advanced Family Chiropractic was about to help me.

I went to the massage event and loved it. I scheduled an appointment to go see the chiropractors at AFC during the event. Then the weekend came. I was out and about with a friend. When all of the sudden I was in a pretty bad car accident. I was very stiff and hurting pretty bad. I kept my appointment at AFC and I’m so glad I did! When I got there I told them what had just happened. They really helped me through the process and pointing me in the directions I needed to go. They had my back from that moment on. The pain was so intense I could hardly move. After following the doctor’s recommendations, which included massages and chiropractic care, I was feeling better within just a couple weeks. I make sure to keep my appointments to keep feeling great.

I had gone to an urgent care directly following the accident. They had done X-rays but didn’t tell me any of the results. I had no idea what the findings were. I then had my X-rays done at Advanced Family Chiropractic, but this time I loved it! The doctor discussed my results with me immediately. With every exam AFC did, the results were discuss with great detail. I look forward to coming to AFC! It puts a pep in my step and a smile on my face!

"I Can Dance Again"

I had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis several years ago. I had been seeing my doctor on regular basis and was on a lot of medications. Still the pain in my body was extreme. The facial pain I felt was horrible. As you can imagine the joint pain was always present and sometimes debilitating. When I found out I was pregnant I couldn’t continue to take all that medication to help with the rheumatoid arthritis. I knew I had to find something else. I had just moved to the Tri-Cities and was driving when I saw the office of Advanced Family Chiropractic. Something just stood out. I knew I had to go there. So, when I got home, I called and they got me right in. After just one treatment I felt a difference. The pain in my face was gone. I had never gone to a chiropractor before, so I was unsure of what to expect. I was curious, wondering how it was possible to already feel the relief I had felt instantly after being adjusted. I mean I only had one treatment. How was this possible? I went straight home to test things out. I did some high leg kicks first to see if I could move again. I COULD! So…I turned on some music and just started dancing. I could actually dance again! I could move my body in ways I hadn’t been able to in years.

I know that if I want to feel great all the time, I have to invest in myself. I make sure I take the time to make it to my appointments. I find myself telling other people when I hear them say they can’t move like they used to, or it hurts to do the things they used to enjoy they should try going to Advanced Family Chiropractic. They helped me, I’m sure they can help you too. Just give it a shot, you never know until you try, and why not invest in yourself so you can feel great again!
