Testimonials

Far too often when health care professionals are unsure what is wrong with a patient, they diagnose them with something that lets the patient know they are not normal. The patient often feels labeled, broken and helpless.

Take a look at some of the diagnosis, diseases, syndromes, etc… that have walked through our doors and have disappeared without the use of drugs, pills, lotions, injections, surgeries, or even aspirin!

Acid Reflux

I first started coming to Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey because my brother was a patient and he was getting a lot of help. I had very bad acid reflux and my parents thought chiropractic could help me like it helped my brother. Dr. Amanda showed me why my spine being out of line is related to having my reflux. I started to feel better and love coming to get adjusted because I know it will keep me healthy. – Tyler O.

Asthma

asthmaAt six months old Luca rolled down 18 wooden steps to the concrete basement floor. As any mother would do I rushed him to the nearest emergency room. Luca was discharged after 17 minutes. In that time a nurse took his vitals, a doctor took his pulse and a nurse came back in to tell me how resilient children were. As I put Luca in the car I was dialing Family Chiropractic for Luca’s first appointment. Moving forward to just after his first birthday Luca became ill.  At 2 in the morning his lips were blueish and his breathing was labored. I rushed him to Children’s Hospital where after two breathing treatments and a round of steroids he was admitted with a diagnosis of asthma (which is very rare for someone so young). After a two day  stay Luca was discharges with a prescription for steroids and a nebulizer treatment system, all of which have precarious side effects. Since these incidents Luca has been under the constant care of Family Chiropractic and for the last six months has been drug free.  Luca’s asthma is maintained by chiropractic care, he is healthy and very happy.  In August, Luca will be two and he will celebrate just as he should. If you ever run into Luca ask him what he thinks of Dr. Amanda… he will raise his arms in the air and yell yeah! – Luca M.

Back Pain

Back PainFor the past few years I have developed back pain while running. In fact exercise in general brought pain that I decided to live with due to unsuccessful treatments with other Doctors that used muscle relaxers and pain relievers to treat me. It was time to go down a different path of treatment than before. I heard some folks in run club talking about their experiences with Dr Amanda Jordan. The practice was highly recommended by several people so I gave her a call.

In the first visit the Doctor took X-rays of my spine and after finding some issues which she explained in detail. She then talked about how she was going to approach the problems. After a few visits and some time educating me as to the process of what was taking place with my spine, the pain lessened and I am running better than I have in a long time with no pain. Dr Jordan is also treating me with supplements to help with allergies and digestive issues. I have seen positive results in these treatments as well.

The treatments were effective and I experienced results in less time than I could have imagined. I was waiting for some long drawn out treatment plan that was going to force me to lose work time. Instead I found a practice that is very flexible with schedules and gets down to the nuts and bolts of the problem with no huge sales pitch. I would describe the quality of care as caring, efficient, educational and effective. – Scott S.

Back pain solutionsIn December 2013, my six year old daughter Lily started complaining that her back was hurting. She had pain in between her shoulder blades that just wouldn’t go away. I didn’t know much about chiropractors, but I knew that this was an issue for that profession; not something my Pediatrician could help with. A friend of mine used a chiropractor in Cranberry, and I thought about going to him; however, after a quick internet search I found Family Chiropractic which specializes in children. I knew this was the place I needed to take Lily.

During our initial visit, Dr. Amanda did a wonderful job explaining subluxations, how the body worked, and how she helps correct the problems. She made me feel very comfortable having Lily under her care because she took time to explain the “why” and “how it works.” After the x-ray, we saw that Lily’s back was curved and her hips were not aligned; this was cause of her pain. In all the years of going to the pediatrician, they never picked up on this curvature; nor did we, as parents, pick up on this issue because she looked like a healthy kid from the outside. We started Lily’s treatments in January 2014 and within 2 short months her spine was close to being perfectly straight. The pain in her back went away almost immediately after the first few adjustments.

In addition to the back pain, Lily also complained of frequent stomach aches though I could never understand why they were happening or determine the cause. However, as she received the adjustments to her back, her stomach issues began to decline and have now gone away completely. Lily is now on track for a healthy life starting from the inside out. We continue to perform the maintenance adjustments bi-weekly to help maintain healthy spinal growth! Thank you Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey! – Shanna D.

After working around the house, my back was knocked out of whack and I was having a hard time walking.  In fact, I had to crawl up the stairs in my home on both Sat and Sunday.  On Monday, I called Dr Amanda Jordan and she was able to squeeze me in around 10am that morning.  It was the best call I made.  My pain was rated at a 10 on a scale of 10. Dr Jordan has been an amazing help to me.  She thoroughly explained the issues and walked me through the x-rays.  She gave me tips for eliminating the pain beyond the normal visits and tips for how to live a more healthy lifestyle when it comes to my lower back.  The pain started going away in a very short time frame and I was able to return to work rather quickly.  Dr. Amanda Jordan was fantastic!  The quality of care was more than I expected.  Thank you! – Darryl Tieken

 

IMG_20160516_4I first came to Family Chiropractic through my daughter who was suffering from back pain. It was through Dr. Cotey Jordan’s great explanation, diagnosis, and plan that I realized I should be coming in as well, after suffering from 30+ years of chronic back pain.

I have had lots of health improvements since starting care at Family Chiropractic. I have dramatically decreased my medications, taking no allergy and pain medicine any longer! I have increased energy, increased mobility and range of motion. I like to go to the aqua classes at the YMCA and I have been able to increase my weight and endurance. I am also staring golf! A lot of stuff!

There are so many things I love about coming in for care. Everyone is so cheerful and happy, and they truly care about you. Drs. Amanda and Cotey are so encouraging, they want ME to take ownership for my health and understand everything, and will go to great lengths to explain everything to you. I love their dedication and their excitement to help other people be healthy and live their life to the fullest. -Claudine W.

 

20160209_091849I was introduced to Drs. Cotey and Amanda Jordan through a mutual friend who felt we shared mutual values regarding healthy and balanced lifestyles. It has proven to be one of my rewarding encounters and allowed me to establish a fulfilling friendship with people whom I respect and who are examples of how healthy lifestyles can impact our lives.I admit that I was skeptical about chiropractic care from previous encounters with old style chiropractors. As a practicing physical therapist, we sometimes have different approaches to solving problems, which added to my reluctance. After a gentle dose of persuasion, Dr. Cotey convinced me to try his approach and appealed to my desire to make lasting changes in my life.
I am 67 years old and have experienced 3 different back surgeries in the lumbar spine. I have ongoing problems with minor pain after the surgeries, but nothing I thought was dangerous. However, I had resigned myself that my “Golden Years” would not prove to be golden, because of the degeneration that was evident in my lower back vertebrae.
I can now say unequivocally, that the adjustment protocol that I have received from Drs. Cotey and Amanda has done wonders. My back pain is a thing of the past; my vertebral alignment ia more normal, with some changes proving to be dramatic. My body and weight is more balanced, I experience decreased parasthesia in my left foot (a constant post-surgical problem prior to adjustment), and I just feel better.
On another note, I have recently completed a 21 day cleanse from Standard Process. Dr. Amanda first encouraged me to consider this as the next step to a healthy lifestyle. I decided to dive in because of the trust I had in her recommendations. This cleanse also proved to be life changing. The change in my body was staggering to me. My energy level has increased. I lost 21 pounds in 3 weeks without starving myself. My skin condition has improved. My sleeping pattern has improved and I wake up refreshed instead of “groggy.”
Needless to say, I would recommend Family Chiropractic to anyone willing to change their lifestyle, is willing to take the responsibility for their health and is willing to take a leap of faith and listen to the words of wisdom shared by Drs. Cotey and Amanda. I respect that they live what they preach. They have truly been a blessing in my life.

Bedwetting

bedwetting treatmentNight Ninja is an 11 year old boy who due to his ninja skills prefers to remain anonymous:
How often did you wet the bed? 4-5 times a week
How did it make you feel when you wet the bed? confused, embarassed
How often do you wet the bed now? I went 28 days without wetting the bed! (update: over 90 days dry!!!)
Can you explain to other children how Dr. Jordan helps you with bed wetting? I have a bone that is tilted and because its tilted it does not let my body communicate. Dr. Jordan moves the tilted bone so my nerve can communicate and now the tilted bone is not tilted anymore and I can feel when I have to go to the bathroom.

You should know I’m a skeptic. The idea that Dr. Jordan could help my son wake up dry in the morning feels incredibly far fetched. Even now, when I understand WHY she has been able to help, I still feel a twinge of disbelief. Yet it is true. It is really happening. And perhaps only parents of “bed wetters” can imagine how grateful I am.

What I have come to understand is this: The reason my 7yr old “Night Ninja” kept waking up wet is the nerves trying to send the “HEY! Wake-up you gotta PEE!” message were not getting their message to the brain’s command center. So my son woke up wet. Often. Four or five times a week often. Lots and lots of laundry. Many expensive “Pull-Ups” often. And my ninja was so very discouraged. I have to admit, I had come to think of it as “normal”. Both my son’s uncle and grand dad wet the bed into their teen years. I figured it was somehow genetic and my ninja would eventually grow out of it. I really wish I had understood sooner that a chiropractor could help.

“How can Dr. Jordan possibly help?” I wondered. Then Dr. Amanda explained that the reason the messages were not being correctly sent or received was a neurological problem. -That the nerves couldn’t get the “HEY! Wake-up you gotta PEE!” message out. And Dr. Jordan understands the nerve (neurologic) system.

Even though Dr. Jordan had helped me hugely with my migraines, it was still hard to take the step and let her help my son. I guess I was just scared. And yet, the likelihood that she could help my son was huge. So I decided I’d try her care for 6 months. Within that first month alone we saw a drastic improvement. The Night Ninja went from wet 4-5x a week to dry 4-5x a week. His longest stretch so far has been 28 consecutive days dry. I can see his confidence growing. He is excited for his first sleepover with his friends. ~A delight he avoided when he had to wear pull-ups.

So now as I lay in bed, I hear the sound of 7yr old footsteps speeding the the bathroom. A swoosh, a flush and the Night Ninja has struck again. Thank you so much Dr. Jordan. – the “Night Ninja” Mama

Breech Baby

Chiropractic testimonial, breech babyWhen I was 38 weeks pregnant, my baby had been breech for 3 weeks and my doctor’s had forced me to schedule a C-section delivery. I was very distraught and thought there had to be something that I could do to turn my baby around which did not involve two large men pushing on my stomach! I reached out to my friends and that is when I found Family Chiropractic and Dr. Amanda. The first time I visited Dr. Amanda I felt very comfortable. She was very thorough and explained everything to me before we got started. Dr. Amanda used a technique called Websters, which is completely painless. After just four adjustments, my baby has flipped to head down! I cannot thank Dr. Amanda and Family Chiropractic enough for helping me and my baby. I would absolutely recommend them to all my mommy and mommy to be friends for prenatal care and beyond! – Erin N., Lucie’s Mommy

Constipation

chiropractic for constipationMy daughter Avery, now 18 months old, has been attending my chiropractic visit to see Dr. Amanda Jordan since she was about 4 months old. With a developing immune system, I have found the adjustments that she receives to be very beneficial. It was around 9 months when we began to introduce solid food that she experienced constipation for the first time. I contacted Dr. Jordan to see if an adjustment would be something that could ease her discomfort. I was amazed at what a difference a small adjustment made. Needless to say, my daughter made up for lost time and my husband and I changed more than our normal share of diapers in the days following the adjustment. – Casie Z.

Degenerative Disc Disease

The problems that brought me in to see Dr. Jordan was the fact that no other chiropractors were hearing me because they were not truly “taking the time to listen.” Dr. Jordan really takes the time to listen, truly listen. I feel like with the other D.C.’s my treatment was being put in a box. Meaning I wasn’t a quick fix case and the usual adjustments were not working. I was actually getting worse. Dr. Jordan has you in a gown in order to “see” your back. Because of that she could see swelling; she could see the path of red dots where a nerve was being pinched.

In 2000 I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. I am very physically active and because I was getting worse I had to stop exercising. Even using my right leg to push off with and just go up steps hurt. Because of Dr. Jordan’s caring nature I have started to have days where I can walk, stretch, go up steps without straining or painful tightness. I can even do something so easy as to pivot! My right leg and hip would catch so bad with such an intense grabbing strain that because Dr. Jordan takes the time to listen. I can now, without even thinking about it pivot and turn with no problem. – Linda S.

 

 

photoI had another chiropractor tell me that the condition of my spine was too bad and that the best he could offer me was pain management. My spine is not healthy, however in 3 months time Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey have taken me from a phase 3 degeneration in my low back to a phase 2 and from a late phase 3 to an early phase 3 in my neck! That’s huge! The Jordan’s care about you and your health. They want you to understand how your body works and how to keep it functioning properly. The knowledge I have acquired is just about as huge as the improvement I’ve experienced! You can’t go wrong with this practice, I wish I had found them sooner and I wish everyone I love and care about would become patients here! – Linda M.

Depression

 Hello, my name is Patricia Wainwright. I am a 25 year old mother of two. About two years ago is the first time I’d ever heard about family Chiropractic from one of my friends. She had urged me for the longest time to come see Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey for help. At that point in my life, I had been struggling with anxiety, panic disorder and depression. I was diagnosed with narcolepsy shortly before that and was given medication to help with my fatigue. As we all know, working a full time job and raising two young children​ is no easy task, but at the end of everyday I had no energy left. I was constantly tired, I struggled with back pain, headaches, dizziness and a list of symptoms that goes on.

I was not functioning like I should at 25 years of age.
I finally made time to hear what Dr. Amanda and Cotey​ had to say. Just hearing what they had to say opened my eyes to everything that was going wrong with my body. Little did I know, that just a short year later, I had not only made the time, but also a great investment in my health and future.
When I came back for Dr. Cotey to review the changes in my final X-rays, I was amazed at all the positive changes that had been made in such a short time. But I didn’t need an X-ray to know there was change because I felt it.
All of my symptoms are near gone and best of all, I am no longer relying on any medications of any kind to help me function properly.
Not only did they help me physically, they helped me see my overall health in a whole new light. For myself and my family.  Mentally, physically, and emotionally I have grown in a positive way because I chose to do something about it with people who love doing what THEY do.

Dizzyness

chiropractic care for dizzynessI believe in fate. One day, my boss announced we were going to have a chiropractic office bring in lunch and we just had to listen to a short presentation. I was up for it, who would turn down a free lunch? Little did I know, that lunch would change the way I lived and took care of myself and my family.

Stacee was so energetic and excited about her job, so I decided to make an appointment and give it a try. I had been suffering from migraines, sciatic pain and constant dizziness since I was young. I just didn’t ever feel “well.”  I had tried doctors and yoga and over the counter medicines, but nothing helped longer than a few days. The first time I met with Doctor Jordan, I knew we would be a great fit for each other. I have only been a patient for almost 6 months, and already my life has drastically improved. The headaches are minimal, the dizziness is almost completely gone and the sciatic pain is far and few between. Not only has my spinal health improved, but I now am inspired to eat better and put myself first for once. As a busy mom of 2 boys, 7 and 15, you seem to always put yourself last. With Dr. Amanda’s help, I realized that when I am not taking care of myself, I am not doing my kids any good. I have lost 8 pounds in 6 weeks by simply changing my diet.

I am amazed how much more energy and healthier that I feel. I can only imagine how much better I will feel in another 6 months. I feel like the staff at Family Chiropractic has become part of my family and that they actually care about my health. I believe in fate, and fate brought me to FC!! – Chris M.

Ear Infections

chiropractic & ear infectionsAlex started going to Family Chiropractic soon after his first birthday. We were looking for an alternative to the antibiotics his doctors used to prescribe weekly for his ear infections. He also had colic, issues with immune system, irregular bowel movements, some food intolerances and constant waking up during the night. Alex is now two years old and since we first met Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey, we have not needed to see his “regular” doctor. He has not even had a single ear infection! He is the healthiest kid (even during flu season) at the daycare. We as a family have changed our eating habits/lifestyle per Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey’s recommendation (very easy to do so-when their family is a great example to us). Besides fruits and veggies we boost our immune systems by taking quality supplements and with the regular chiropractic adjustments. Alex is a good sleeper and very happy two year old toddler. Thank you for making a difference in our life! – Mickey S., Alex’s mom

Fibromyalgia

fibromyalgia and chiropracticI have to start by saying that I truly believed I could not be helped by anyone much less a Chiropractor! I was taking so many medications from different Doctors for several issues; I was diagnosed with arthritis, spinal stenosis, bone spurs and Fibromyalgia. I was too young to have so many issues; I was miserable every day and just doing my job was exhausting! Then a friend of mine said I had to try her chiropractor “they are amazing” she said. After my X-rays and an explanation as to what was actually going on with me I decided to give Chiropractic a chance.  I am so glad I did; I have had an amazing change in my life! I am done with just over half of my adjustments now and I am feeling amazing, full of energy and can work without pain. I can never thank Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda enough for the quality of life I have back! I will continue with wellness care after my corrective care is through and not only because of how it has made me feel physically but because the atmosphere in their office is so invigorating. There is an air of positivity and personal treatment for every client. I recommend Family Chiropractic to everyone and I know given the chance they can help you! – Dee Harman

FibromyalgiaFirst I have to say that Family Chiropractic is not the first Chiropractic office I have visited. As a matter of fact, it is the seventh! Some of them were good experiences and some of them were not so good. I have pretty low back/sacrum pain that I have had for a very long time. I also have MS and IBS and I pretty much just hurt. I don’t know how else to explain it other than to say I just hurt; all the time, everywhere. It had been years since I had had a pain free day. I met Dr. Amanda at a women’s networking group I joined and decided to see what she had to say.

I made an appointment and quickly realized JFC was going to be different. I just felt this Chiropractor (meaning Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey) seemed different from the other chiropractors. Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey  did an extensive neurological exam, spinal x-rays and a report of findings where they explained their recommended plan of action. Dr. Jordan explained how she was not doing manipulations, but that she was doing “adjustments.” Then she explained the difference! Ahhhh, I see!!! I found it so interesting and informative. It all made so much sense to me.

One day I walked into the office and Dr. Cotey asked me what was wrong. I told him: “I just didn’t feel right”. As I walked back to the changing room he noticed me veering off to my left. I was very unsteady on my feet. I changed into my gown and went into the room to see Dr. Amanda. She looked at me and asked me what was wrong. I told her “I just didn’t feel right and I had a headache and I was nauseous”. She called in Dr. Cotey and he noticed that my

pupils were uneven. Dr. Cotey needed to give me a neck adjustment. He explained what he was going to do and how he was going to do it. He was very patient and kind. After he did the adjustment it was like he had flipped a switch!! I felt better, my headache and nausea were gone and that “I just don’t feel right” feeling was gone. Also, my pupils evened out too. I was amazed and realized that this was going to work! One day I woke up, got out of bed and got on with my day. My husband came home from work and asked me how I

felt. I started to say “I hurt”, because that is what I always said, but then I stopped myself and said “I actually feel good today! I don’t hurt.” Huh? Did I just say that? Yes I did!

When Dr. Amanda did my first progress report we were amazed at how much I improved. My second progress report was great too! I continue on the schedule that was laid out and I have had several pain free days! The patience that Dr. Amanda shows is remarkable. This has been and will continue to be a long process, but I have faith that the Drs. Jordan will continue to help me have more and more pain free days and just be a healthier person! – Leslie B.

Fatigue

FatigueLet’s start by just saying… I felt really crappy all over all the time. Every afternoon by 3 or 4 was tired, achy joints – before, during and after working. The following days after work had swollen joints. Slow to get out of bed in the morning… taking about 15 minutes to get up and get going for the day. Couldn’t even sleep through the night. Would fall asleep for about 3 to 4 hours and then that was it… toss and turn for the remainder… and then of course felt lousy the whole next day.

Losing weight was really hard so it was easier to give up and besides there was always something “more important” to do…even if it was work. And then you can add hot flashes on top of all this with a screwed up cycle that was all over the place.

After following all of Dr. Amanda’s advice, there is no afternoon tiredness anytime and I felt like I could work all day and feel wonderful. Don’t seem to run out of steam and can work all day even with my rheumatoid arthritis. The supplements have really helped. My joints don’t hurt working and they do not hurt the next day like they used to.

I can go to bed at 9:30-10 and sleep through out the whole night and if I do get up… can go back to bed and fall right back to sleep! I can even fall back asleep when my husband’s alarm goes off at 4:40am! I have not been able to do this since my first child was born 26 years ago.

My hot flashes… within about 2 weeks myself and my husband noticed that the hot flashes just weren’t showing up anymore… just kind of faded away. Along with this my cycle is actually normal again!

With Dr. Amanda’s recommendations, eating better and choosing healthier choices and putting myself first… the weight has changed and is easier to get off.

My biggest regret was not finding Dr. Jordan sooner. If I would have invested in my health earlier in life I would be so much healthier now for my grandchildren. Thank you Dr. Jordan! – Cheryl A.

Growing Pains

chiropractic care for growing painsI am one of the many patients that go to Dr. Jordan’s Family Chiropractic. I started going to Dr. Jordan after my mom read the JFC newsletter about how leg pains were not growing pains. Before I went to Dr. Jordan, I was having leg cramps almost every night and headaches during school. When my mom finally brought me into see Dr. Jordan I found out I had scoliosis, my hips weren’t aligned, my spine was very crooked which isn’t good and my neck was perfectly straight which is very bad too, it is suppose to be curved. I have been going to Dr. Jordan’s office for about three months now and I have seen many improvements in such a little time. My hips are evening out, my spine is beginning to move back toward how it’s supposed to be, my neck is begging to regain it’s natural curve and I have absolutely no leg cramps anymore, and I get headaches a lot less and less severe.

I am so very happy I go to Dr. Jordan’s. I feel better every day and my activities and sports are not as hard to do anymore! The Jordan family are amazing at what they do and put so much care and effort into what they do! If you have back pain Dr. Jordan’s office is the perfect treatment. Take my word for it, I go all the time and so do other people. Thanks for reading! – Lindsey S., 11 years old

Growing PainsThe reason I started treatment at Family Chiropractic was because my leg was hurting almost every night. My life has changed because my leg has stopped hurting as much as it did before. I feel better when I am doing many things like playing hockey, running, swimming, biking and playing outside. Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda have been really nice since the day I came here. Thank you JFC! – Shannon S.


 

Herniated Disc

Herniated DiscI started seeing Dr. Jordan in December of 2009. I was previously diagnosed with a herniated disc. I had been treated for several months prior to seeing Dr. Jordan to no avail. I am very active and an avid runner but this injury significantly reduced my activity and completely halted my running. Running had always been a large part of my life and is something that I enjoy very much. My goal was just to get back to running but eventually the pain and discomfort were altering my everyday life and kept me from being able to complete the simplest of tasks.

Through Dr. Jordan’s adjustments, advice and holistic approach to health a good portion of my pain and discomfort were resolved very quickly. I was able to return to doing most of the activities that I had previously engaged in and was back to running in no time! With her care I was able to progress to the distances that I had been running previously and recently finished a full marathon. This was such an amazing accomplishment for me as I was beginning to question my future running career. I now feel healthier and stronger than I have in a long time and am better equipped to resolve any flare ups as they occur.

Dr Jordan has played a tremendous role in enabling me to resolve my back pain. She has always been very patient with me and willing to answer any and all questions that I have. I feel as though she truly cares about me and my health. Her approach to health and wellness is education of the patient which has always been my belief. The knowledge she has provided me with has enabled me to take better care of myself. – Gina M.

Hip Pain/Hip Replacement

Hip replacementIt as a tough beginning… started with a low back pain for which I used heat wraps constantly.  Then the pain transferred to my left hip and my doctor told me I should have a hip replacement, which I didn’t want.  I couldn’t walk without pain and so I didn’t go anywhere where I would have to walk a distance, even shopping in local big box stores. One day in November of ’11 my daughters noticed I had one hip higher than the other and suggested perhaps a chiropractor.  They had no idea at that time how thankful I would become to have followed their advice.

I was referred quite by accident to Dr. Amanda and when I first visited the clinic, had 2 very concise consultations with her about how her treatments would be and when she saw my full body x-rays, what to expect.  I am 77 years young and had been very active in my 50’s which unfortunately didn’t seem to help me as I grew older.  I have considerable degenerative problems in my spine and as this was pointed out to me, I could see on the x-rays how bad my poor body really is.

However, and this is the best part.  I had regular visits with Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey where they worked with moving the bone in my spine off the nerve which causes my hip pain…..there was such pain from a ligament in that hip area, I couldn’t turn over in bed. So between the two adjustments, I don’t have pain from the ligament nor the hip and I can walk.  I can walk!!

I will be seeing them less and less as the months go by as I become more able to stay pain free for longer times.  I will however, miss the support she has given me on many health issues, but can always be in touch with them if I have questions. – Anne G.

Hip PainWhen I tried to play volleyball I would have really bad pain in my right hip area. When I went to the medical doctor who I thought was the best, he told me that I had to stop playing volleyball immediately and that I could not participate in tryouts. He said that I had torn my growth plate and that I had a hip avulsion. He said I should literally do nothing. According to him I was done with sports. Are you kidding me! This is my life! Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey examined me and assured me that I had not torn my growth plate and adjustments are all I needed. After just one adjustment I could tell the difference and was able to finish tryouts. Not only am I playing, I just turned 17 and have been playing on the 18 year old team. Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey really know what they are doing and I am so thankful they were willing to help me! – Rachel S.

Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey are so awesome! They not only listen… they hear and they truly care. My daughter, Rachel, plays volleyball and started having hip pain to the point of having trouble walking. There was a major rotation of her left leg upon taking a step forward when walking which also caused a limp. She was in the midst of volleyball tryouts and was having a hard time competing. She would have to sit out for a portion of the volleyball conditionings due to the difficulty she was having. I took her to a well known orthopedic practice whose motto is “Getting you back in the game.”  In actuality they were taking her out of the game.

Long story short… had I listened to them back in August/September she would not be playing for club volleyball today (November)!!  The orthopedic doctor diagnosed her with a tear in the growth plate of her left hip, possible hip avulsion and said she should stop all activities and stop playing volleyball all together. Right after the first adjustment given by Dr. Amanda we started seeing results… Her “step” forward with that left leg upon walking became less rotated and she went a short amount of time with no pain! By the time the next couple of adjustments were given she was actually able to jog around our block pain free and the rotation became less and less and today no longer exists!!

Today she is jogging, running and does sports conditionings at a training facility. Today is November 14th and today makes four days straight of volleyball tryouts PAIN FREE!! Rachel is clearly back in the game…The game of life and volleyball thanks to Family Chiropractic!! – Linda S. (Rachel’s Mom)

Irritable Bowel Disease

Being in Construction almost my entire adult life I was feeling lower back pain and difficulty emptying my bladder- causing major sleeping disruption. After visiting Dr’s Amanda and Cotey Jordan my back feels great and I am getting in full nights sleep because I am able to empty my bladder. My quality of life has improved dramatically. After each visit I feel more flexibility and have better body function. Also, I never thought I would have so much fun in a doctor’s office. Thank you both for your touch in so many ways! – Ron E.

 

Almost immediately after eating I would feel very sick and would almost have to RUN to the bathroom. I was having incredibly loose stools all day anywhere for 9-15+ times daily. This would also make me very anxious and stopped me from going out often because I didn’t want to have my night interrupted by having to go to the bathroom. There were many instances where I would be driving in the car and all of a sudden get a horrible feeling in my stomach and have to find a restroom immediately! Fortunately I always made it to a bathroom, but the thought of not making it was making me even more anxious and thus increasing the urgency.

Since beginning treatment, my stools have become more solid and the urgency has almost completely stopped. I’m also a lot less anxious about going out or having long shifts at work. Along with the decreased anxiety, my physical stomach pain has gone away and the times a day that I have to visit the restroom is more like 3. For me, that is a really big deal!!!!

I had been having these problems for about 3 years and the only solution any other doctor had for me was put me on medicine to slow my metabolism and possibly gain up to 30lbs!!! As a 21 year old girl that was scary. I have made small changes in my daily activity to help with the problem – taking the supplements Dr. Jordan recommended, decreasing my alcohol intake and cutting coffee out almost completely but the chiropractic care is the one thing that has completely changed my life! I have made vast improvements in just the past 3+ months! – Jess P.

 

Laryngospasms

laryngospasmsOur daughter Madison has been undergoing treatments with Dr. Amanda for the past 2 months for neck and jaw issues.  I really appreciate the time spent diagnosing and explaining the diagnosis and treatment plan before treatment started.

Not having experienced chiropractic medicine I did not know what to expect.  I have been pleased with not only the treatment results also the patience and willingness of Dr. Amanda to listen to Madison and also to answer all of our questions.

The other benefit has been the nutritional aspect of her practice.  She has demonstrated taking a holistic individualized approach to her patient’s care versus a one size fits all approach.

Madison’s symptoms have been difficult to isolate a root cause and we have been searching various ‘cures’ for her problems. Finally we found someone who could help our daughter.  I have appreciated the fact that Dr. Amanda has been open to discussing these with us and has even encouraged us in our search.  She has been humble to admit she doesn’t always have the answers or that Dr. Cotey may be better at a particular adjustment or will reach out to her mentors for guidance.  I truly feel that she has her patient’s best interest in mind.

Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey are very friendly, approachable and create a refreshing change of experience for doctor visits.  They have all been an encouragement in helping my daughter through the emotional struggles she has had with her ailments and this has played a part in her being able to move forward.  For this I am truly grateful. – Shawn B.

Migraines

migrainesHi! I’m Linda Donaldson and I have been a patient at Family Chiropractic for almost three months. I sought out chiropractic care because my migraines had become so severe and frequent. Sadly I was out of commission about once a week for at least 24 hours. More and more frequently my husband had to take me to the ER for IV narcotics and fluids. That was our last option after Imitrex and other prescription pain killers didn’t work anymore. I also saw the effect my migraines were having on our kids. It had become commonplace for the kids to be told “I’m sorry but you can’t see Mama, she had a headache.” In fact, if either of them ever saw me resting the immediate question was “Oh Mama, do you have a headache again?”

Since I have begun seeing Dr. Amanda Jordan my migraines have diminished slowly and surely. (I am certain she is in as much of a hurry to see them go as I am.) I have now been able to go a couple weeks headache free, and when they do occur they are tolerable -even without medication. (What a change!) Amanda’s support and compassion have been incredibly refreshing and sincere. Her approach to chiropractic care is very different from all the others I have experienced. Dr. Amanda is very precise in her adjustments and excellent in her technique. She has an amazing amount of knowledge as to the “why” of what is happening and determining the source of the problem and is able to communicate it all so clearly. I am so grateful for the excellent care and kindness I have received at Family Chiropractic. – Linda Donaldson

migraines & chiropractic careBefore I started getting adjusted regularly, I would let my pain drive me to the Chiropractor. I never realized that getting adjusted at least once a week would significantly reduce all of my pain and symptoms, improving my overall health.

I was suffering from extreme migraines that were greatly affecting my daily life at least twice a week. As the headaches were becoming more severe, so was my pain. I would lose my appetite, had terrible sleeping patterns, and even being labeled as someone with “a bad immune system” as I was always sick. I was still receiving treatments for a blood disorder up until a month before starting as a patient at Family Chiropractic.

I was receiving little to no results with “traditional medication” and figured that any other routes were at least going to rule out treatment possibilities. Dr. Amanda started me out with Standard Process Supplements and adjusting three times weekly, decreasing weekly visits over time. Within weeks, my symptoms were done. My headaches had been cut down to only four or five within five months. My whole body and the way it was functioning had improved.

Maintaining a regular visit schedule, I am able to maintain my pain and keep it to a minimum. Something I never had the privilege of before. I am also able to ask Dr. Amanda millions of questions, covering every topic when it comes to my heath. She is always happy to help me find answers, and work my treatment for me, which has been able to change my whole life. – Seana R.

I have had migraines for as long as I can remember, probably since I was about 8 years old. Just before the throbbing got unbearable I would have to lay down very still in a dark and silent room for hours. Sometimes they were bad enough to make me physically ill. This was really hard as a little girl! All I wanted to do was play outside with my friends. When I was about 20 I started seeing a chiropractor every once in a while. The migraines lessened in frequency but they were still there and headaches were a 2x a week occurrence. About five years later I started seeing Dr. Amanda Jordan. I was really nervous at first, it was a lot of time and money to invest in something that you hope works out. She took xrays of my spine and I had no curve to my neck and my neurological tests weren’t very good. I have been seeing her for three times a week for four months now and at the end of the first month my migraines were gone. At the end of the second month, my headaches were gone! I am no longer leaving work early a few times a month for headaches/not feeling good. The added bonuses are that I am not spending a ton of money on Ibuprofen anymore and my cramps during that time of the month are significantly less painful! Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey have done more for my health than I ever thought someone could do and they are doing it without any drugs. In the most recent xray a curve was very visible in my neck already. I am very thankful for the knowledge these doctors have and the compassion they have for their patients. – J.G.

I started seeing Dr. Jordan July 2010. I went to her seeking relief of my headaches and migraines. I had approximately 2 migraines every month. They were very severe and would last for 2 days and were followed by a headache for a day or so. My symptoms were seeing spots, pressure behind my left eye and extreme light and sound sensitivity. Since seeing Dr. Jordan both the frequency and severity have drastically decreased.
In addition to my headaches, I also have received adjustments for my jaw which would frequently pop and cause pain making eating difficult. In the beginning treatment was frequent as required, but Dr. Jordan is constantly striving to find the balance between frequency and required treatment. Dr. Jordan’s primary concern is individual progress and health, and she goes beyond the symptoms to look at the root of the problem to determine the best way to increase my quality of life. – Cory V.

chiropractic treatment for migrainesFor years I have suffered from daily headaches that I attributed to holding stress in my shoulders. After being diagnosed with arthritis in my neck, physical therapists told me that I was too young to have these problems in my spine and I felt I would just have to get use to the pain. Before meeting Dr. Amanda, I wasn’t sold on the idea of chiropractic. Her gentle encouragement and promise of relief left me with no excuses. After my first visit, the troublesome vertebrae was set back into place and I was amazed that the headaches, went away. During my visits I learned how a lower back injury many years ago more than likely caused the deterioration in my upper disks and that I didn’t have to accept the consequences. Dr. Amanda is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything in ways that are easy to understand. – Mary Limbacher

 

 

IMG_0880Several months ago, I was blessed to be chosen as one of the patients in Dr. Amanda & Dr. Cotey’s Migraine Challenge. I have had migraines for over 30 years and was having 3-4 a week, even though I am taking daily migraine medicine. At my initial evaluation, I learned that I had very little curve in my neck and my spine was tilting to the side. After only a few weeks of care, I went 24 days without a migraine! At my 3 month recheck, I was delighted to learn that my neck is beginning to curve and my spine tilt is improving. And, not just my migraines are being affected… my energy level has increased significantly and my body is functioning at a higher level. The personal attention you get from both doctor’s and the office staff is second to none. I am on my way to a migraine-free life and am blessed that God led me to these wonderful people! -Nancy M.

 

 

Neck & Upper Back Pain

Neck and Upper Back PainI started going to Family Chiropractic in late December 2013. I’ve struggled with neck and upper back pain for years. I was the passenger in a car accident in college and have never been the same. I found some relief in the past from other chiropractors, but had to move each time I started getting established. One chiropractor would just adjust me each time I came in. He helped with pain management, but did nothing to help solve the source of the pain. Not long after I moved and no longer was able to go, the pain quickly came back. I just learned to live with it for years, accepting that this was something I’d have to accept and get used to and try to function as best as I could despite the pain.

Finally in December, I’d have enough. I couldn’t carry my 13 month old daughter without being in pain. I met Dr. Amanda in a mommy group on Facebook and found out that her practice was not far from me. I decided to give it a try. At my first visit, I learned how truly bad things were and how other areas were suffering due to my back issues. My balance was off, I was weak in my arms and my x-rays showed my neck was almost totally straight and even starting to curve the opposite direction that it should. I couldn’t believe it. I felt defeated. But I felt like I was finally in good hands of people who could actually, finally, get me the help I desperately needed.

I started my treatment right away and have been going twice a week ever since. I’ve noticed over the past 4 months that I no longer am living with pain daily. I can carry my now 17 month old daughter without pain. At my next x-ray, we found that my neck had a 7 degree change, which is an amazing change! It was proof that Family Chiropractic was helping me – I finally found people who could help “fix” me. It’s such a difference to be able to live pain-free. I’m so thankful that Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda truly care about helping their patients –every size and every age –to live healthy, happy and pain-free lives. I appreciate the fact that they don’t just “crack” my back to help me get thru the next few days before my next appointment; they only focus on the areas that are causing the issues and target them to fix the underlying cause of my pain. They had to be tough on me at times, but they knew I could handle it because I am that dedicated and determined to get better. I appreciate everyone at the practice for their warm smiles, their caring hearts, their honesty and their passion for helping people. – Kristi C.

 

I had been experiencing neck pain for quite some time and visited several chiropractors. My neck pain would keep reoccurring time and time again. It was when I walked into an auditorium one evening and noticed my vision was so blurry I couldn’t identify faces from a distance that I knew I needed to do something else. My friends and family thought I just needed glasses- but I suspected it may be coming from my neck. I then decided to seek out care. My son Ronnie had previously been to several chiropractors like me, but reassured me that the doctors at Family Chiropractic were like no other. They focus on corrective care, not just a “feel good” adjustment. I decided to make an appointment. I am happy to report that not only has my neck pain gone away, I have mobility when turning my head from side to side again. My vision is no longer blurred. Chiropractic care has improved my life in so many ways I had not expected- I feel younger, walk taller, and have better posture! If you are looking for an overall better quality of life for you and your family- the care at Family Chiropractic is the avenue to take. I am so happy I made the decision to trust in their care. Thank you Family Chiropractic! –Karen E

Nutrition & Overall Health

nutrition & chiropracticI met Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey through my photography. I had the pleasure of taking pictures of their beautiful newborn, Ali. During our session my back was hurting, as it always seems to, and I spoke to them about my back pain. I went back for a consultation a few days later. I didn’t know what to expect, because I have never been to a Chiropractor before – it all seemed kind of scary to me. I tend to avoid going to the doctor unless I am really sick or in pain, because they have never really helped me. Dr. Amanda did my initial consultation, and never in my life has a doctor actually talked to me about my health for over an hour! (And she had just had a baby less than a week before my appointment) We talked about my overall health including my back pain – not just my back pain. Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey really care about overall health, and are willing to invest their time and expertise to help me! I took several tests, both physical and written, and I answered lots of questions. I really love their philosophy that the body can heal itself with the right care. At the end of my appointment, Dr. Amanda told me she could help me with my energy level, my headaches, and my back pain! She prescribed a course of vitamins and several weekly adjustments. After only one month of regular adjustments and taking vitamins, I now have more evergy, and my monthly headaches were almost non-existent! I am not on any prescription medications. My lower back pain is gone and now they are helping me with my neck pain caused by sitting at my computer for several hours a day editing images. I am so excited to have met Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey, and to have their guidance. They have really made a difference in my life! – Andrea S.

I have had a need for Chiropractic Services for many years.  In January of 2008 I moved back to Iowa and went to the Palmer College of Chiropractic to obtain services. There my husband and I met many different students and have grown fond of Dr. Amanda and her careful touch. My difficulties have always been the result of my active lifestyle. I enjoy working around the house and having moved and the work involved with moving has brought me to her attention. I only wish I could move with her as she is going on her own to far for me to be her patient. Her skills and her training have given me great relief. I wish her well and hope that my travels will enable both my husband and I to meet with her again. – Chrystal S.

Nutrition & wellnessI had long been skeptical of chiropractic treatment, largely due to the huge variety of chiropractors in the world. Then two things happened: I discovered the US Olympic team has an official chiropractor (hmmm, good enough for them?) and I met Dr. Amanda Jordan. Regular adjustments with Dr. Amanda have unquestionably helped me safely negotiate athletic overuse injuries and work related aches. But far more importantly, Dr. Amanda’s treatment, helping me to pay attention to my spine and entire nervous system, influenced a profound change in my nutrition and listening to my body. Her treatment has truly complemented, supported and enhanced treatment from my orthopedic surgeon, physical therapist, and cardiologist. This week my cardiologist happily reduced my blood pressure medication. That has not happened in over ten years! Dr. Amanda has never pushed any treatment or supplements, rather, helped me understand and seek out what was best for me. She is wise beyond her years, passionately fascinated by the amazing human body, has a tremendous fund of knowledge, and joy in all her work. If you think you are too old for optimum fitness, fantastic nutrition, better sleep, or weight loss, think again. Dr. Amanda helped me achieve all of this. THANK YOU, Family Chiropractic! – Anne S.

Pain

After working around the house, my back was knocked out of whack and I was having a hard time walking. In fact, I had to crawl up the stairs in my home on both Sat and Sunday. On Monday, I called Dr Amanda Jordan and she was able to squeeze me in around 10am that morning. It was the best call I made. My pain was rated at a 10 on a scale of 10!

Dr Jordan has been an amazing help to me. She thoroughly explained the issues and walked me through the x-rays. She gave me tips for eliminating the pain beyond the normal visits and tips for how to live a more healthy lifestyle when it comes to my lower back. Absolutely, the pain started going away in a very short time frame and I was able to return to work rather quickly. The quality of care was more than I expected. Thank you Dr. Amanda Jordan. – Darryl T.

Pain and chiropracticI need to let you know that without the adjustments you made prior to my leaving on this whirlwind trip, I would never have been able to sit comfortably in the truck for the 12 hour trip. That also goes for the 4 hour plane ride that followed. Thank you again for your expertise. – Diane M.


 

Foot painPrior to coming to the office, I was going to numerous doctors and trying to figure out what was causing the severe and constant tingling pain in both feet. No one had been able to figure out a cause for the neuropathy in my feet. I could not take one step without being aware of the pain. Having a teaching position that required constant walking, the work day was very difficult. Over the past eight months, God has blessed me with the care and expertise given by Dr. Amanda Jordan and my primary care physician. By listening to their wisdom and submitting to their care, I can now walk for 1-2 miles twice a week without extreme pain. This is truly an answer to my prayers! I used to walk 4 miles every day for the past 25 years. So, I’m not where I used to be but I’m hoping by God’s kindness and the expertise of Dr. Amanda Jordan I’ll be walking long distances again! – Darlene M.

Pregnancy

Right before I had my daughter in November of 2012, my hips and back were in the worst shape of my life. Dr. Amanda and Dr. Coty helped get me back on track for the last few weeks. But, even after all of that, I was still in fear that with the issues that I had, my little one might have endured some pain being inside the womb. So, in order to make sure all was well with her, I made sure I had the best pediatric chiropractor on call when she was born. Within 24 hours of my C-section and Giuliana being born, Dr. Amanda was there to help make sure everything was ok with her. I was so worried that she might have endured some type of harm on her body because of my stressful labor. Dr. Amanda came down to hospital, took her gently from my arms, and adjusted and checked her spine and neck over, right there in front of me. I was amazed how easily it was done, and without any pain and suffering to her. Giuliana actually slept the entire time! – Nicole M.

 

I first went to see Dr. Amanda at Family Chiropractic when I was 37 weeks pregnant and I was told my baby was breech. She did the Webster’s technique and the baby flipped! I was ecstatic!!! We began talking about my general health and I told her I suffered from migraine headaches on a monthly basis. After I delivered my daughter, my migraines increased and my general well being declined. So I started seeing the Dr.’s regularly and took charge of my health. I am happy to say I suffer way less migraines and FEEL amazing. Along with the adjustments, the staff at Family Chiropractic has helped me realize that nutrition and exercise are a vital part of feeling the best I can feel. They are friendly and kind to me and my family. I am now on maintenance care and only visit them every other week and I have to say, I miss them, but I’m glad I am to a point where I have to go less often. I highly recommend this practice to everyone! -Erin N.

 

 I first started coming to see Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda when I was 7 months pregnant with my fourth child.  I was having sciatica pain and it hurt to move around.  The gentle care that Dr. Amanda gave to me and even the tenderness she showed to my unborn baby was amazing.  Not only did my pain go away – I knew I had found a doctor that truly cared.  After Marcus was born I received my first set of x-rays which showed my neck didn’t really have a curve to it and that other parts of my spine were out of line too.  I didn’t really have any symptoms but I knew that if they weren’t taken care of they could turn into something much worse.  I started blitz care and even with 4 kids I made myself a priority and made it to all of my appointments and tried hard to do my at home exercises.  It wasn’t easy but I knew it would be worth it.  While visiting with Dr. Amanda during my adjustments I learned a lot about healthy eating and the importance of exercise.  I have done the 21 day cleanse a couple of times and each time I learn a bit more about myself and how to make healthier choices.  I recently finished my blitz care and am proud to say my neck went from being at a 17 (not good) down to a 4 (awesome).  The other issues I had in my spine were gone.  I still continue to get adjusted once a week because I know it helps me function better.  All four of my children also get adjusted and I can see the difference in them too.  We are a family that continues to function at the top of our game thanks to the care we have received from both Dr. Cotey and Dr. Amanda.

5 years ago my daughter kept telling me “Mom I do not feel well!” Everyday she told me, but me worked together so I just assumed she was just complaining to me. One day she told me “Mom you do not understand, I feel like I have an elephant sitting on my chest. This is not normal!” That statement was all it took to start looking on the internet. I found so many things, cancer, leukemia, the worst you could possibly imagine for your child.

A little back-story about my daughter- she was born 6 weeks early at only 4-5 pounds and struggled to survive. I remember she could not absorb iron as a baby so we had to make appointments with the blood doctors. She ended up getting blood transfusions and iron interveniously until the insurance stopped paying.

One day while I was researching my daughters health issues, my sister Amy introduced her to Dr’s Cotey and Amanda Jordan. When she walked in the door Dr. Amanda knew immediately she was not absorbing any vitamins. After several visits they determined she had severe scoliosis.

Years later, with a LOT of time on my daughter and Dr. Cotey and Amanda’s healing hands, I am now a grandmother of a beautiful 11 month old Lincoln Parker. The doctors were able to move her spine in the correct position to cause her organs to function much more efficiently than they were. Due to the help, intelligence, and caring hearts of the two doctors we now have a baby! Not only does my daughters entire family now to the Jordan’s, I do as well. They help, they care, and they WANT you to heal. Their down to earth side is their personal kicker. I could not thank them enough for helping my entire family live a better life.  – Kelly O’

Family chiropractic is the perfect solution for the entire family and we have trusted them for the last 2.5 years! They have helped everyone in our family from a newborn to my husbands parents! Not only have I trusted them with my kids, but they have adjusted me in two pregnancies which I believe has truly helped me thru labor! Their chiropractic services have become apart of our weekly routine and don’t know what we would do without them!! -Megan E.

 

 

 

 

Projectile Vomiting

acid reflux & projectile vomitingAt just two days old my daughter, Abby, was showing signs of acid reflux. She would breastfeed wonderfully and then minutes after finishing would projectile vomit all over me and her self. It was a sad scene seeing all this liquid coming out of such a small child. It was then followed by crying that at times was almost inconsolable. I had never see acid reflux before, but had heard stories from my friends whose children also had it. I contacted Dr. Amanda Jordan in hopes that an adjustment would improve the acid reflux. After a few adjustments the projectile vomiting lessened. I knew the adjustments were working because we went out of town for a week and missed our bi-weekly visits with Dr. Amanda. The weeks vacation resulted in three episodes. We returned to our scheduled appointment after our trip and things have been great since. Dr. Amanda is very gentle in her adjustments and we were able to avoid having to medicate such a small child. I highly recommend every parent to consider chiropractic care for their children as it has been a lifesaver for Abby and my family.” – Casie Z.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis and chiropracticWe originally came into JFC for Lexie’s sister Joey. However I decided that it would be best to have Lexie checked out. We found out that she had scoliosis. Thank goodness we caught it early before it started causing her problems. We as a family are trying to improve our health and well being. We are taking our supplements daily and being adjusted regularly, it has become second nature at this point and seems like it has always been our routine. After the first 24 visits we did Lexie’s x-rays again. It was unbelievable to see that her back is completely back to the way it should be. Coming to JFC has changed our lives in so many ways. We will continue to come here to keep my girls healthy. Lexie and Joey’s grandma found the article that led us to JFC. I can’t imagine not being here. Everyday they help us to become healthier. Lexie loves coming here. She gets bummed when the weekend comes around because she won’t be at JFC for a couple of days. Thank you JFC you are all life savers!” – Brandy R., Lexie’s Mom

Back pain solutionsIn December 2013, my six year old daughter Lily started complaining that her back was hurting. She had pain in between her shoulder blades that just wouldn’t go away. I didn’t know much about chiropractors, but I knew that this was an issue for that profession; not something my Pediatrician could help with. A friend of mine used a chiropractor in Cranberry, and I thought about going to him; however, after a quick internet search I found Family Chiropractic which specializes in children. I knew this was the place I needed to take Lily.

During our initial visit, Dr. Amanda did a wonderful job explaining subluxations, how the body worked, and how she helps correct the problems. She made me feel very comfortable having Lily under her care because she took time to explain the “why” and “how it works.” After the x-ray, we saw that Lily’s back was curved and her hips were not aligned; this was cause of her pain. In all the years of going to the pediatrician, they never picked up on this curvature; nor did we, as parents, pick up on this issue because she looked like a healthy kid from the outside. We started Lily’s treatments in January 2014 and within 2 short months her spine was close to being perfectly straight. The pain in her back went away almost immediately after the first few adjustments.

In addition to the back pain, Lily also complained of frequent stomach aches though I could never understand why they were happening or determine the cause. However, as she received the adjustments to her back, her stomach issues began to decline and have now gone away completely. Lily is now on track for a healthy life starting from the inside out. We continue to perform the maintenance adjustments bi-weekly to help maintain healthy spinal growth! Thank you Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey! – Shanna D.

Weight Loss & Digestive Issues

“The first time I met Dr. Amanda & Dr. Cotey I knew they would be successful.  They are smart, energetic, determined, and they really care about people.  They want you to understand how your body works so that you can help them to help you. I started as a patient at Family Chiropractic because before going there, every time I would kim-rgo to my family practitioner, they would write me a prescription.  With each prescription came a 5-10lb weight gain and another ailment, for which they had another prescription.  After about 10 years of this vicious cycle and a 50lb weight gain, I felt terrible.  I was always tired, to the point that I could fall asleep in the middle of a conversation. My back hurt, my feet hurt, I felt like I couldn’t breathe, every time I took a deep breath I would go in to a coughing fit.  My goal was just to start feeling healthy again.  I had let myself fall in to the mindset that I was always going to be overweight, because I had already tried every diet on the market and every time I lost weight I would gain it back…plus a few extra.  I just wanted to get healthier. After my first adjustment, I felt like I could breathe again.  There was no longer tightness in my back.  I did the recommended exercises and continued to come for my adjustments.  I was continuously feeling better, so I asked about the nutrition program.  I did the 21 day cleanse (Standard Process Purification Program) and felt 100% better!  I lost 35lbs in one year by using the 1 Degree of Change philosophy.  I am slowly easing off of my medications and I know that with continued maintenance (the adjustments) and sticking with the nutrition plan I will lose the additional 15 pounds.  Even if I don’t, it doesn’t matter because I feel great!  The best part is that if I go off the plan for a few days, as long as I don’t go crazy with eating and drinking, it is very easy to get the weight back off. I’m so appreciative to have Family Chiropractic and I’m happy to refer them any time I can.”           -Sincerely, Kim R.

weight loss & digestive issuesI sought out care at Family Chiropractic because my daughter, while in a consultation of her own with Dr. Amanda, brought up some of the symptoms that I was experiencing. The doctor said that it was probably a nerve issue from a subluxation in my lower back and my daughter called me then and there.

Since the prilosec wasn’t working, prescribed by my PCP, I thought I would give Dr. Jordan a shot. I was also dealing with a metallic taste in my mouth, abdominal cramping, nausea, heartburn, inability to lose weight, and the list goes on and on.

Only two weeks after my first adjustment I was feeling better. I then went on a 21 day purification program to detoxify my body, and also learn to eat better foods and incorporate whole foods supplements into my diet.

My life has changed from worrying about my health every day to enjoying my healthy lifestyle. When you’re feeling bad that’s all you think about. Sore muscles, indigestion, back pain, etc.

I wake up now feeling great, with a new attitude towards losing more weight and even exercising.

One more thing worth noting is since I’ve lost around forty pounds through my new health lifestyle and self image has improved significantly as with my general outlook on life. – Bob H.

 

Wellness

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Amanda Jordan since the summer of 2010. She and Dr. Coty have seen me through some of the most difficult times of my life. Not only do I consider them with the same regard as my PCP – I don’t make any major medical decisions without consulting with them first! Because of their genuine support, and authentic holistic approach, I would go no where else for chiropractic care, which for me, is primary care. – Susan H.

 

I would recommend Family Chiropractic to anyone I meet. Drs. Jordan use their vast knowledge to help make you the healthiest you can be. I have never felt better than I do now. They take the time to help you understand and correct any health issues you may have. Everyone in their office is friendly and very helpful. – Melanie K.

 

Tara, Community Outreach DirectorJust like the name says, it’s a family atmosphere. Myself and my kids (4 and 2) have been seeing the Dr. Jordans team for a few months now. While all the kids in my sons preschool have already been sick – my son is still healthy and strong. The doctors will listen to you and care about what happens outside of the office. We have even seen them in the stands at sporting events cheering on their patients! Not only are they genuinely caring, they are the best at what they do. I have never once left feeling sore, nor have my children ever complained. It is a bit shocking to see what lies under the skin and how taking care of myself now could lead to many more years watching my future children’s children grow up. I am so glad I didn’t wait until something was “wrong” and we are taking a proactive route to our health with Family Chiropractic! – Tara Q.

 

 

 

20160209_080542 (1)I have been going to see the Drs Jordan for a year and a half now and I love the quality of care and the focus on overall well-being and holistic health. These two are my doctors for life. I started taking my 8 year old daughter over the summer as well. Chiropractic care of the highest quality is integral to our family’s health and we are so glad to have found a lifetime fit. The office is comfortable, the staff friendly, and the doctors funny, professional, talented, and just generally great. – Sarah V.

 

 

 

IMG_4878What initially brought me in to Family Chiropractic is a networking invitation from Dr. Amanda. After coming in and enjoying a workshop on Health and Wellness by Dr. Cotey, I decided to get checked. I can’t even begin to tell you how much my life has changed since that day! My initial symptoms have all subsided, but there is more to the adjustments than that. I feel tension release, and relaxed afterwards. I feel HEALTHY and in-sync with my body! I also love coming in to the office, the entire staff is very friendly and my appointment is always quick and on time, so I can schedule it around my busy life! -Chris H.

We love Family Chiropractic! I started taking our daughter at 6 months old for cranial adjustments and the results she has gotten in just 2 months are amazing!! The Drs are so knowledgeable and I love that they are so willing to share their knowledge with you. The office atmosphere makes you feel like family!
