Testimonials I'm Thankful For...
"I had a great experience at BARRETT HEALTH CENTERS. Dr. Barrett, is an amazing person and a great doctor. I'm glad I met him. For the past 2 or 3 years he has been my doctor to go to when I have back problems and he is just amazing at his work. He is like family to me. I owe him a lot. If it wasn't for him I would be suffering from back pain all the time. Thank You Dr. Barrett and you know you always have a seat at our dinner table whenever you like. Appreciate your friendship and work ethic. "
Best Regards, U. M.
Dianna had been living with pain and burning in her lower back for several years. She stopped working in her yard, she let her house work go, and she could no longer take long walks or even stand for long periods of time. She was taking over-the-counter medication, using heat, getting massages, using a whirlpool/jacuzzi, all of which only temporarily relieved her pain. The pain made her feel extremely agitated, and it made her feel older than she was. Her husband had to take over the house keeping duties and her daughter had to help. She even purchased a child's wagon to carry groceries from the car to her house. Dianna was tired of going on trips, and holding everyone up because she had to take breaks after a few minutes of walking. Finally, her husband insisted that she see a chiropractor because it had worked for him in the past.
After a thorough examination including x-rays, Dianna was prescribed physical medicine modalities to reduce pain and muscle spasms as well as a series of chiropractic adjustments. As Dianna's pain lessened, she was given specific therapeutic exercises to improve her functional capacity. Dianna came in for her regular adjustments, as per Dr. Barrett's recommendation, and has been doing fantastic ever since! Dianna's only regret is not coming sooner! Her family and friends were shocked to see that she decorated the inside and outside of her house for Christmas. (She hadn't done this in two years.) She was able to cook and bake for everyone. Dianna said that she had forgotten what it was like to feel good.
Thank you Dianna for being a great example to our patients and others that struggle with pain like you have.
"Love the doctor, love the staff. Everyone makes you feel comfortable. They know what they are doing and they are there to make you better. I think I am taller!" --Dianna
"Graydon is only two years old. Yes, two! Graydon first came into our office October 2011. Earlier that year, Graydon began having severe ear infections. His mother took him to the doctor several times, and each time the outcome was the same. Every doctor's appointment ended with a trip to the pharmacy and ten days of antibiotics. Graydon was taking so many antibiotics that they were no longer working to kill off the infection and alternating between different antibiotics was no longer working either. In September 2011, Graydon was seen by his pediatrician for yet another ear infection and his doctor gave him THREE shots and another ten days of antibiotics! The medicine may have been helping temporarily at times, but the infections were continuing to occur. These antibiotics were not fixing the problem! Graydon's mother addressed these issues with his pediatrician, and was told the only option for him was to have surgery and have tubes put into his ears. The tubes are supposed to keep him from getting as many infections, and in SOME cases, any infections. Unable to accept this option, Graydon's mother began to look for some alternative methods. After eight ear infections, and even more antibiotics, she decided to schedule an appointment with our office. Graydon came in on October 25th, 2011 and did very well for his first day. Dr. Barrett adjusted him and right away Graydon responded exceptionally well to the treatment. Since the day Graydon started treatment with Dr. Barrett, he has not had one ear infection. He has gone from having eight ear infections in five months, to not having any! Graydon's mother says he has been sleeping much better and even his digestion has improved quite a bit! This is a great example that big things come in small packages. Graydon is a great illustration of the range of possibilities that chiropractic can offer to everyone from birth to retirement!"
