My name is Lauren, and this is how chiropractic has helped me.
Whenever I first came to Elevation Chiropractic, my worst symptom was having headaches.
I had upper back pain, lower back pain, knee pain, sciatica pain, overall struggle with sleeping. Walking up the stairs, I was in pain.
And as a teacher, my stress level was through the roof. So I was definitely looking for a way to cope and something other than what I was doing at that moment.
A few strategies that I had tried before chiropractic care were medication, I tried rest.
I tried having all kinds of different pillows around my body when I would sleep.
I would also try moving more, heat, cold compresses.
I definitely needed, I knew what I needed to do, but it was definitely just taking that next step of saying, okay, I need someone who have better strategies and the tools that I would need to make sure that my body would feel better and to do what it was created to do.
My limitations around my job, being a teacher. My stress level is through the roof.
And in the past, I actually struggled with having shingles at a very young age.
And I knew that my stress level needed to be lower. I also needed to make sure that I had enough sleep.
And so losing sleep, having a high stress level, it just kind of created this beautiful storm of I need to slow down and I need to make sure I’m focusing on my own health before I can focus on my family’s health.

I actually heard about Elevation Chiropractic through social media, along with YouTube, because I’m on YouTube a lot. And also word of mouth.
And I know everyone here at Elevation Chiropractic cares about the patients and that was a big deal to me as well.
The overall whole health was definitely important to me, knowing that if needed they can help my children as well.
And my results have been extreme. They’ve been wonderful. I can sleep at night now without any pain. And I am actually able to move more.
My range of motion has increased and my stress level is decreasing, which is great.
And I really feel like it’s giving me more focus on what I can do with my health, as far as weight loss and exercise levels, to better my health for the future.
So when I first came to Elevation, I struggled with migraines and I also struggled with upper back pain with my neck area.
I had a terrible horse accident in college about 16 years ago, and I didn’t really receive the proper care that I should have. I didn’t address it like I should have.
So my neck alignment is improving and I’m sleeping better because of it.
And I also have minimal headaches. Actually, I haven’t had one headache since.
My other impacts, positive impacts, have been my lower back. My sciatica nerve area.
I carried two babies full term and having that pain be completely gone, or decreased at least, has been such a blessing.
Along with that, I’m able to move more and play with my kids and exercise the way I want to, to improve my overall health.
The other thing that was a huge improvement was I have major menstrual pain each month and I actually addressed that issue. And since, I have had zero pain whenever I have a menstrual cycle, which is a huge improvement.
So whenever I first started chiropractic, it was actually not here. I started at a different
office a few years back. I actually started going after I’d had my first accident, probably two to three years after it happened.
It was a huge help. It helped me sleep better, helped me have less pain. And then I also, I took a little break and then I returned whenever I was pregnant with my first child, due to my sciatica pain.
And that helped me sleep through the night with zero pain. Sleep is very important to me.
