What Our Practice Members Have To Say...

These are just a few of the great things our practice members have to say about the care they received at our office…

When you receive a diagnosis of breast cancer, your priorities in life change. You begin to surround yourself with the best doctors: ones that have the skill, knowledge and compassion to help you through the toughest and darkest time of your life.

Even with the best Oncologist and Surgeon, you still search for help. That is where Doctor Jim Doran and his Chiropractic Wellness Center entered my life.

With exceptional knowledge of the human body and mind, Dr. Doran’s caring nature sets him apart from conventional treatments. Through body alignments and acupuncture, I was able to work throughout my treatments and bounce back to my same old self.

Life is about caring for your mind, body and soul and I entrusted mine to Doctor Doran and his staff. For me personally, I could not have made a better decision. Give yourself that same chance. Call today -- start on your way to good health. - Lindajo Danielson

Dr. Doran creates a very welcoming professional environment where I feel like I am known and treated perfectly for my needs. I believe Dr. Doran’s treatments continue to promote my overall everyday well-being. - Debbie Grace

I have less pain and I am able to keep on doing the activities I enjoy. - Brandi Bales

I was having problems with heartburn when I exercised. Dr. Doran helped me to get rid of that problem and I haven’t had it since. Thank you! - Brian Beck

I had neck and back pain for several years and after a few weeks of treatment from Dr. Doran I was feeling much better. I have fewer headaches and less pain. I look forward to feeling good all the time in the future. Thank you! - Shannon Kohler

I have been having migraine headaches for many years and Dr. Doran has made them a thing of the past! I am enjoying my life more than ever now and doing things I hadn’t been able to do for months. Thank you so much Dr. Doran! - Farrah Aziz

Dr. Doran has a gentle touch and has been the only doctor to really help. I have been with Dr. Doran for years and will only see him. - Adria Maez

I had been suffering from low back pain for about nine months. I kept aggravating it by doing a lot of lifting improperly. With Dr. Doran’s guidance and adjustment I was feeling much better in a matter of a few weeks. I am now back in the gym and feeling healthier than ever. Dr. Doran’s knowledge of health and fitness has also helped me become healthier in all aspects of nutrition, weight training and aerobic exercise. Thanks Dr. Doran! - Ross Fawcett

My lower legs hurt for years. Chronic I’d say. I’ve always been a bit skeptical of chiropractic. I am a firm believer now. Although it did take some time (a couple months, about 14 visits). At about one quarter of the way through treatment the pain moved to the middle lower and I thought “Oh great!” but Dr. Jim assured me that was normal and good. Now all the pain is gone. I feel great! - Myra Faherty

In 1986 I had surgery on my lower back to remove a ruptured disc and I have had back pain since then. However, these past few years the pain has increased to the point where I was taking pain pills everyday, resulting in stomach pain. So I came to Dr. Doran and after several visits, I noticed a definite decrease in the intensity of the pain. I started cutting the dosage of pain medication in half and now there are days that I don’t take any. - Karen Freml

I have been suffering from migraine headaches for the last five years. They were infrequent at first but became more frequent as time went on. My migraines were completely debilitating and I was constantly paranoid I was going to encounter one. I watched what I ate and drank, stayed away from bright lights, reduced the stress in my life, anything that might be a trigger, I avoided. I tried numerous different kinds of medications , none helped but caused several other side effects. One day I decided the medications were only a preventative measure. (I was down to one migraine every 12 weeks) but I wanted a cure. I stopped taking my medication and got a migraine the next day - I was devastated! I went back on the medication and decided to see a chiropractor. I have been seeing Dr. Doran (my chiropractor) for a couple months now. I stopped taking my medication three weeks ago and have been migraine free. I am a true believer in chiropractic care. - Stephanie Ward

I have scoliosis which was causing me a lot of pain and debilitation. I was depressed and hurting and couldn’t get through a day without drugs. I consulted with Dr. Doran who put me on a program of exercise, stretching, and regular adjustments. The program keeps the pain at a minimum. I rarely take medication now and can perform daily activities and participate in the sports I love. - Stacy Holbert

I came to Dr. Doran and started getting adjustments and began feeling better immediately. I am now down to getting adjustments just when I really need them. - Maggie Taylor

When I walked in my first time I was hunched over and in tremendous pain! Ever since, I have been fully functional and usually an adjustment relieves the pain. - Matt Stephenson

How “Safe” is Safe?

Are Some Drugs Safe?

The truth is that even the so-called “safe” drugs aren’t totally harmless. In an average twelve-month period, more than 1.5 million hospitalized people suffer from the side effects of the drugs and therapy they receive there. Aspirin alone sends about 1,600 people to the hospital each year who die from gastric bleeding.

Drug interaction also creates a serious problem. Some individual drugs may be relatively benign, but taken together they can be “deadly.” According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average American senior citizen is given more than fifteen prescriptions each year. Sometimes, these come from doctors who aren’t aware of the other medications the patient may be taking. This could lead to tragedy if the drugs cause a toxic reaction.

B. J. Palmer said….
“All the drugs in the world cannot adjust or align a subluxated vertebrae.” Why is the legal drug situation out of hand? We know that in the U.S., the medical doctors are part of the problem because they write 1.6 billion drug prescriptions each and every year. In seventy-five percent of all office visits to a M.D., drugs are prescribed.

But patients have to shoulder part of the blame also. They seldom question their doctors and rarely request drug-free care, probably because most want a “quick-fix” rather than a slower, more sensible approach to health.

Finally, a great deal of blame fails to the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical industry which spends more than $10 billion each year…marketing its products which is much more than they spend on researching the safety of taking these drugs. If the tranquilizer, Prozac, is a reasonable alternative to dealing with problems, how much of a reach is it to use marijuana or cocaine or worse?

Whether you want to believe this or not, whether you agree with me or not, adults design the paradigms. It’s the pattern we set that our kids follow. The next time you pop a drug, stop and consider what you’re telling your children without saying a word.

It’s All Up to You

“Loss of life does not come from chiropractic adjustments; wish that we could say as much for surgical operations.”
