Health and Happiness,
Chiropractic helped my Spinal Stenosis!
I was first referred to Dr. Ennis by my son who had received treatment for a back problem. He was very pleased with the results that Dr. Ennis was able to achieve in alleviating his pain.
I had recently been diagnosed with spinal stenosis, (which is a squeezing of the nerves in the spinal column due to age and a spinal fusion I had 30 years ago) after a long period of time with various doctors. I had had a bad fall about two years before this and had been seeing a pain doctor for relief of my back pain since then. After my fall I was in a wheelchair for two months and thereafter had to use a walker or a cane to aid my mobility. I had received steroid injections several times, which did no good for me whatsoever. I had also developed the bad habit of slumping over when I walked due to the pain in my back. My pain was alleviated somewhat with pain medication but I wanted not to have to rely on that so much in the future.
Dr. Ennis and his staff have taken me under their wing and have greatly enhanced my quality of life in so many ways. I have never had better posture in my life and my back doesn’t seem like a question mark anymore. I am using neither a cane nor a walker anymore and can go about my life without much support. My pain specialist had told me that people who suffer from spinal stenosis usually end up in a wheelchair but with Dr. Ennis’ help I am not going to end up that way.
So, I have a great many things to thank Dr. Ennis for and I am so grateful that I darkened his door that day. And if you get the chance, have a massage with Sally and her “Magic Hands”. ~Susan F.
Chiropractic helped my back pain!
My first visit at Ennis Chiropractic was 6 or 7 years ago and it was for back pain from moving one of my daughters. Over the years my monthly tune-ups have kept the pain away. I’ll turn 50 this year and proud to say I’m on NO prescription drugs. Thanks to the team at Ennis Chiropractic. Thanks for the health. ~Richard L.
Dr. Ennis helped me regain my health!
Before I came in to see Dr. Ennis, I had pain in my neck on the left side that felt like it was broken, which caused severe pain to shoot up into my face. Also my fingers were numb and I thought I had nerve damage from my epidural from my daughter’s birth.
My back hurt all of the time and my mom was tired of me complaining all of the time. Over the counter meds weren’t helping. I could barely do anything except complain!
After receiving chiropractic care with Dr. Ennis, all of my symptoms went away. I felt younger and able to do anything! In fact, when I do something crazy (without thinking), I am always coming back to Dr. Ennis to fix what I messed up! Thanks Dr. Ennis! ~Michelle V.
Chiropractic helps Migraines!
I have suffered from migraines as far back as elementary school. At around age 26, they became more frequent and severe. The pain was so severe at the height of a migraine, it would cause any or all of vertigo/dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and a searing sensation up my neck/behind my eye on the right side. My other friends/coworkers in healthcare urged me to see a neurologist. I did the routine doctor visits & MRIs. It was a good step because it ruled out any neurological problems…but still left me to deal with the pain. I couldn’t afford the name brand migraine medications ($170 for 6 pills), and the generic brands worked only temporarily while making me feel ‘drugged’. I had always been a skeptic of chiropractic care, but was at my wits end & was the only thing I hadn’t tried/followed through with. I began coming to Dr. Ennis in January of 2011. Dr. Ennis’ office & staff were so welcoming & professional from the first visit onward. They really seemed to care about my case & sympathized with my reasons for seeking care. They are also THE most accommodating and flexible doctors’ office I have ever dealt with…coming from someone in healthcare! I began a series of treatments & within 3-4 weeks, I began to feel just better overall. Stood taller, posture felt stronger, etc. One day, I was due for an adjustment, but a horrible classic migraine had set in. I forced myself to go to the appointment and showed up wearing dark shades and feeling horrible. Dr. Ennis saw the pain in my face, evaluated my neck & it was like a light bulb moment. He said “whoa! This guys hanging way out here…its no wonder you’re in pain” (speaking of my C1 being out of alignment). He explained how this could most likely be the culprit in my migraine history and proceeded to realign it. It is no exaggeration when I say that within 10-15 minutes, and without medication, that same tell-tale excruciating pain was alleviated. I could tell I’d had a migraine…but the pain itself was gone. In addition to routine alignments, I continue going to the gym & practice better sleeping habits (no stomach sleeping). I have not had a migraine in over 3 months and counting. I now view chiropractic as preventive maintenance for my spine, much like oral health (i.e. teeth brushing, flossing, etc). Following through with and continuing chiropractic treatment under Dr. Ennis was and is one of the best things I ever did for my body. ~Melinda J
Pain has diminished!
Since having regular monthly visits to Dr. Ennis my symptoms of hip and lower back pain have diminished dramatically. I wake up with less pain and sleep better through the night. My posture has improved also. Having scoliosis could have prevented me from doing many things, but because of chiropractic care, I enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle. ~Kelly K.
Lower back pain is gone!
When I first started coming to Dr. Ennis it would be painful to bend over or even lean back due to my lower back and hip pain. While coming it was interesting to see just how out of whack I really was. Since coming, not only have I seen great improvement in my pain, but also performance.
I am involved in a sport called cross fit, involved with that is weightlifting. As a result of my chiropractic care I have been able to complete the lifts correctly and even PR’d on many lifts. I also had many stomach problems and Dr. Ennis was able to ease that pain as well.
I am a firm believer that chiropractic works and I have greatly benefited from it. It has helped improve my quality of life. Thanks! ~Keelee Adams
Dr. Ennis relieved my back and neck pain!
I came to Dr. Ennis to help relieve my neck and back pain that I have suffered from for 25 years due to car accidents. It didn’t stop me from doing anything but it had built up so much over time that I didn’t realize how bad it was.
Normally I just dealt with the pain as much as possible. About 5 times a year when it got really bad I would take an ibuprofen, but that was it.
After starting chiropractic care I realized the pain was not as constant. And, my overall health began to change. I used to have colds and the flu several times a year. Over the last three years I have only had the flu twice. This was an added benefit I wasn’t expecting!
Thank you Dr. Ennis! ~Christine Z.
Chiropractic has helped me feel better!
My name is Elaine. I’m 56. I have been a patient of Dr. Ennis now for over 5 years. Before I visited DR. Ennis I had back pain, hip joint pain, and at times neck and shoulder pain. Once I received my initial get you back into shape treatment I have very little to no pain all the time. I keep up my monthly appointments and stay in my proper adjustment. I enjoy my visits and always look forward to each and every appointment. Dr. Ennis you and your staff rock! ~Elaine L.
No more bed-wetting!
Our son had wet the bed once or twice a week for most of his life up to the age of 9 and a half. By that age he was frustrated and embarrassed. Sleepovers were nearly non-existent, and we had to wash the bed sheets so much it was never ending.
Our pediatrician said he would grow out of it or we could try a prescription drug. Now, at 9 and a half a boy does not want to wait and see how long it takes to grow out of it! We were about to try prescriptions but decided to take him to Dr. Ennis after seeing extremely positive results in our own treatment and of our other child’s treatment.
After starting chiropractic care, instead of accidents once or twice a week, bed-wetting stopped completely for the first six weeks! One accident in over two months was a remarkable change in his life and ours too! It increased his self esteem, and we celebrated his success with a sleep over camping in a tent!
Thank you to Dr. Ennis and his wonderful staff! ~K. I.
I suffered from horrible allergies…
Prior to me starting to work here, I suffered with horrible allergies. I was forced to take daily doses of anti-histamines to cope with the sneezing and watery eyes. This sometimes prevented me from working and costing me quite a bit in allergy medication. The only way I could find relief was to stay inside on high pollen days or to take multiple daily doses of over the counter allergy medications. After receiving chiropractor care, I noticed the frequency of allergy outbreaks decreased more and more. As of now, it has been over six months since my last allergy attack and there is no need for costly daily doses of allergy medications. ~ Ryan H.
I discovered I had a pinched nerve…
My wife, Quencilia, had been seeing Dr. Ennis for quite some time and had been telling me about how much it has helped, but I was too stubborn. I discovered I had a pinched nerve so bad that I had to purchase a walker just to walk around. I own a business of maintenance repair and inspection and couldn’t work because of the pain. I went to my general practice doctor and was prescribed Vicodin and other pain medications and that really didn’t work. I finally decided to start chiropractor care with Dr. Ennis in August of 2009. Good thing because I saw results right away. I was back to myself in no time and I was able to go back to work. I feel blessed to come here and I recommend that anyone who is having problems to come in and see Dr. Ennis. It really works! ~ Michael G.
I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy and taking Ritalin for the past thirty-five years…
Prior to my first initial treatment with Dr. Ennis, I was diagnosed with Narcolepsy and taking Ritalin for the past thirty-five years. I also suffered from a stiff neck and massive headaches. When I had started my first initial treatment with Dr. Ennis, on July 28, 2010, I came in very tired. I was up until 3am and probably could have stayed up throughout the night. I had missed my 2:00pm dose of Ritalin but couldn’t really figure out why I was still awake. My treatments were good in the beginning and I was able to do stuff but couldn’t figure out why I was like a wind up doll. That wasn’t a good thing because it started to show in my appearance; sunken eyes with dark circles, shaky etc. My blood pressure had elevated. I had never gone to bed before 3-5:00am!
As of September 26, 2010, I am completely off of Ritalin! I have no episodes of uncontrollable sleepiness or falling asleep at the wheel like I have done before. I will consider myself cured! Now as of October 26, 2010 I AM COMPLETELY CURED OF NARCOLEPSY! It has been a solid month off the Ritalin with still no more yawning and I am now in control of when I sleep. My biggest test was going to be my trip out of town and having to drive four straight hours and falling asleep at the wheel but case closed! This girl is cured!
I feel like a normal person now. I no longer have to be sure that I have Ritalin on me or on my key chain just in case of a sleep attack. I am now a free person. I don’t need Ritalin for my safety. God and Dr. Ennis made a great team in my recovery. I came to Dr. Ennis because of my stiff neck and pain and was given a BONUS of being cured of Narcolepsy. I gained mobility of my neck. Dr. Ennis is very knowledgeable and I trust him 100%. This is truly a miracle! My primary care doctor told me I would never be cured from it. Since it is treatable not curable. UNTIL NOW! I am completely sold on chiropractor care you get faster results! I am now fully convinced you need monthly maintenance visits to stay aligned as a preventative care measure. Thank you Dr. Ennis! ~ Janice H.
I suffered with lower back pain…
Prior to coming to Dr. Ennis I suffered with lower back pain. Even though the pain didn’t prevent me from doing anything, the pain itself was still there no matter what I had to do. Some days were better than others, but nevertheless, there was always some sort of pain. I had tried everything as well. I tried heat packs and ice packs and they just provided me only minor relief. After coming to Dr. Ennis, almost immediately my back pain was gone after my first few treatments.
I have been struggling with back and neck pain for years…
I was in my first car accident in 1995 and never sought the appropriate treatment. I began seeing Dr. Ennis and still continue to visit for regular adjustments. At one point I had to take pain relievers for my neck and back pain to allow me to function in my daily life. Since I have been visiting Dr. Ennis I no longer have to take pain medicine other than the occasional Advil for a headache (which is typically why I’m due for an adjustment). I am pretty rough on my body with the stress of my daily job, which is spent at a computer for eight to ten hours with added hours in the evening.
Family Story of Chiropractic Care
My name is Tonya and I have been married to my husband for twenty years. We share two amazing children Brooke and Blake. We have known Dr. Ennis for 12 years now and it has been a fantastic journey. I only wish that we had known him even sooner to learn all the benefits of chiropractic care. I want to share our story because there are a lot of people out there that suffer from the same things that we have and do not understand what chiropractic is really about.
My husband was the first one in my family to come and see Dr. Ennis. He was in a car accident that was causing him a lot of discomfort. The pain at times was so bad that he was unable to hold our newborn son. This was alarming to me because if he could not handle the 7-pound baby, then how healthy and happy was his lifestyle going to be. Dr. Ennis asked him to come in so he could check out his spine and boy was it surprising for us to see what was going on. We knew nothing about chiropractic and had a lot of the same concerns that other people have about chiropractic. I have to say, when he was in the pain that he was in and Dr. Ennis says, “just trust me” we did. We could not be happier with the results and it was not long before he was able to play with our kid’s pain free. My husband has been a guest of the office now for seven years and will be for the rest of his life. He learned that it was not just the adjustments he needed, but that he had to change his lifestyle also. He worked at a job that was literally going to put his health at risk. He lifted extremely heavy objects at work all day and every day of the week. He is so proud to tell people that he has not used any medications in years! I have to tell this particular story because it is one we will never forget. We went on a camping trip with my family and 12 others. We were having a great time until the next morning. I heard my husband screaming. I knew from the sound of it-it was not good. I went running to the tent and yep his back went out. He could not move, roll over, and get up, nothing. Absolutely could not move! After trying for thirty minutes and still no luck, I got really worried. I went and got my brother and some friends to try and help lift him up. At first being the country hillbilly’s they are they laughed. But quickly realized that it was a serious situation. I called Dr. Ennis who was on vacation and he says you have to get him in to see me right away. So finally as painful as it was we all lifted him to his feet and were going to see Dr. Ennis. After a few adjustments he was back to his normal activities. Dr. Ennis is a person who really cares to take his vacation time to help my husband. We all look back now and laugh at the situation, but at that time is was far from a laughing matter. My point to that story is that it did not take drugs or surgery to fix his problem. Chiropractic adjustments are all that it took!
Many of you may know me because I work for Dr. Ennis. But what you don’t know is how I have needed the benefits of Chiropractic care just like all of you. My injuries started way back when I was just two years old. I was in an accident with an 18-wheeler. I have also been clothes lined at my neck when riding my horse. When I was pregnant with my first child I waited tables and carried heavy trays that weighed more than I did. I have fainted several times and fell to the floor busting my head wide open. We all have many traumas or events that we have had over the years that make wear and tear on our bodies happen. Believe me I have many more to speak of. With all this trauma what was happening to my spine? I didn’t think anything was going on. I was like the many other people who get their vision checked, their hearing checked, teethe checked, but did not ever hear of getting my spine checked. I had the trauma in my spine from many years ago that just progressively got worse because I was unaware of the problems. This goes to show that the symptoms are the last thing to show up. I started having migraines, neck stiffness, back pain, earaches, kidney failure, numbness and tingling in my arms, allergy and sinus issues, and became very stressed. I felt for my age what in the world is going on. I should not be having all of these problems. This was all stuff that was going on before I met Dr. Ennis and as a friend of his I was talking to him about this since he was seeing my husband already. He insisted that I come in and get checked out. Well with all the injuries that I have had over the years my spine was a mess. I had no idea. I started getting adjustments right away. I was nervous at first but came to realize that I needed this or I was not going to get better…I was going to get worse. Since getting my adjustments I have not had to take any over the counter allergy and sinus meds. If I get an ear ache…no antibiotics, just my adjustment. I lost one of my kidneys when delivering my son due to extreme protein levels and not I keep on top of my adjustments to help keep the other one functioning at its fullest potential. If I feel a headache coming on-I get my adjustment immediately. I could write pages of what chiropractic has helped me with because the list goes on and on. I now work with Dr. Ennis and have the benefit of learning how the body works and its quite amazing. I also had to make some changes in my lifestyle to take better care of my spine. For example, I was a stomach sleeper. Well that’s not good for the spine. Talking about a hard habit to break. But I had to do it to help my nervous system work at its best. My mother had surgery on her neck years ago and now suffers more now than she did before the surgery. After her surgery if she encounters any smells her whole left side goes numb. Well there are smells just about everywhere. I wish I had known then what I know now and maybe she would not be in that situation. It is really important for every family member from birth to our seniors gets his or her spines checked.
My daughter is 17 now and has been seeing Dr. Ennis since she was 6. Brooke started her life out very sick. She was born seven and a half weeks early. She had spent the first two and a half years pretty much in the hospital. She was having two to three surgeries per week at times. I was very stressed as a mother from going to all the different doctors and she would just end up on antibiotic after antibiotic. It was not helping her at all. She ended up having some breathing problems and had to have a tracheal tube in her neck to help her breathe. She had this for two years. But during all this time it took years for the doctors to realize she had severe acid reflux. The acids were literally burning her throat causing it to swell closed. They then put her on more antacid meds that adults take. She was a baby and they didn’t even help. She then had to go for another surgery. On top of the acid reflux she had allergies, which added more swelling in the throat. You name it…she was allergic to it. They decided to put her on allergy shots twice a week. This was a huge stress to me because they were injecting her with the very things she was highly allergic to. That told be that every time she gets the shot that she will be sick and may not be able to breathe. That is exactly what happened. My daughter went through a lot in her first three years of life. If I had know that chiropractic helped with allergies and acid reflux, I would have had an alternate choice in her care other than surgery and drugs. My daughter sees Dr. Ennis once a month to maintain her spine. She now knows when something does not feel right and will tell me she needs to get to the chiropractor. She is very aware of how important her spine is and that she needs to take care of it.
My son is12 years old and has been seeing Dr. Ennis since he was two. He was like many other children who suffered from chronic ear infections. They had put tubes in his ears to help with the infections after being on numerous antibiotics. I never would have thought that chiropractic could help with ear infections. After telling Dr. Ennis about the troubles with his ears and that he had another ear infection at the moment; he said bring him in. With my son screaming with pain Dr. Ennis gave him an adjustment and I couldn’t believe my eyes. He stopped crying, pain was gone, and was smiling. I have to tell you that ten years later he has never had another ear infection. I was upset at the fact that we went through two years of torture for him when no one had mentioned to me that a simple adjustment could help. To all you parents who have children suffering with ear infections…get them checked by a chiropractor.
Dr. Ennis is a great chiropractor. This is definitely his calling. You can tell immediately that he loves and has the passion for what he does. I can’t tell you how lucky my family is to have him in our family as a friend, my boss, and our chiropractor. We very rarely have to go to any other doctors. Our quality of life is awesome and we can’t thank him enough. Thank you Dr. Ennis ~Tonya
