I originally came to see Dr. Mager when I was 4 years old. I used to get bad ear infections and the repeated antibiotics prescribed by my doctor nearly ruined my intestinal tract. I got very ill and couldn't keep food down. I was hospitalized and almost died. My mom started researching an alternative route for treating my ear infections and read how chiropractic could help. She took me to see Dr. Mager and I have been a patient ever since. I am now 23 and know without a shadow of a doubt that chiropractic has worked for me. I am healthy, tall and strong. After beginning chiropractic care as a child, my ear infections reduced dramatically. All of my intestinal side effects from the antibiotics eventually ceased. Amazingly, I have never taken another antibiotic.
What I thought would be a "quick fix" for pain relief has evolved into a better understanding of myself and how my body works. My understanding of what "health" is and how to stay healthy has changed. I have become "tuned into' how my body is feeling. After each adjustment, I feel a sort of release, or relief... a freedom of movement that is hard to express in words.
I had no fears of chiropractic before coming in for care. I just did not think it would help me as much as it has. I was afraid that only surgery would help me. I was wrong. Since beginning care I walk without a limp and am pain free most of the time. I sleep better, which is always good, and I feel more balanced and normal.
I sought out help from Dr. Mager because I was experiencing back pain, discomfort, and weakness. I couldn't even turn over in bed without sitting upright. Long story short: I have seen Dr. Mager for a year now and I feel like new; no more weakness or pain. I'm going to continue with my chiropractic because I deserve to feel the best I can!
Been coming here for many years. Before I came, I had terrible neck pain. Dr. Mager worked on me and, in time, repaired that! What a huge difference it made! Before Dr. Mager, fast walking or running was very painful. He fixed that! Coming once a month keeps me fine-tuned and I always feel GREAT after my adjustment! I am very happy to have found Dr. Mager.
I wish I could come every day!
Several years ago, I was suffering from almost weekly migraines. A friend told me about how Dr. Mager had treated an acquaintance for migraines. I went in very hopeful and, years later, can say it was an amazing change. I have been migraine-free (maybe 1 or 2 a year) and have drastically reduced any pain medication for minor headaches. Thank you to Dr. Mager and his staff for such wonderful care!
I attended your HEAL lecture the other evening and out of the group that was there I was everybody's "grandmother". Your talk was wonderful and you actually found a crack in this stubborn shell I wear and got me thinking positively again. I now pull myself up and stand straighter, practice my guitar... and go to the mall and walk all the stairs!
