Chiropractic Symptom: Arthritis

January 11th, 2007

I had pain in my lower back that began 10 years ago and was getting considerably worse over the last year. When I first came in to the Elliott Sonar Clinic, I was in severe pain. This pain interfered with all my daily activities. I was in constant pain whether I was moving or not. I went to several medical doctors and even a pain management doctor. They performed spinal injections and even did a disc removal. However, I was still in pain.

My wife told me about the clinic and I went in on November 6th. I was seen by Dr. Lori Sprague. She is a wonderful doctor, always kind and thoughtful. After my first correction I was pain free. As I write this, it has been 2 months already and I may have occasional pain but I am 1000 percent better than before treatment. My wife is also a patient of Dr. Sprague's and she has seen tremendous results in her hip and back pain. We see Dr. Sprague on a regular basis. I am very happy with my results that I have gotten at Elliott Sonar Clinic. I would highly recommend that everyone try this advanced technique of chiropractic care. We come from Oklahoma City and it's worth the drive even if it was twice as far. I would never go anywhere else for Chiropractic care.

Dr. Tom Elliott Jr.

I have been thoroughly pleased with my adjustments I received with the Elliott Sonar alignment instrument.

I have been coming to Elliott Chiropractic Clinic since 1962. The adjustments given by hand did real well until I got rheumatoid arthritis in 1984 and the adjustments wouldn't hold but for a month or so. In 1990 they go where they wouldn't hold but about two weeks, and continued to get worse. In Jan 1996 Dr. Tom used the SONAR machine and it seemed to work well. I had three adjustments from January to April and it was eight months before I received another one. I am sold on the Elliott SONAR machine.

Thanks to Dr. Tom and all your staff for your concern and patience with me during my hard times.

A long time patient,


I was having problems walking with a limp and lots of pain in my sternum. These problems as well as arthritis I think were caused by the bypass surgery I had. I have had chest pains for around 20 years but it was much more identifiable after the surgery, and have just been in constant pain. I was seeing several doctors before I came here. I saw my general MD Dr. Brown for acid reflux, and he put me on Nexium. Then I saw a cardiologist by the name of Dr. Weitzel. He gave me five stints and did a triple bypass but gave me no treatment for my arthritis.

Then I went to see Dr. Mary Schrick around March and she sent me here to Elliott Center of Chiropractic. Dr. Brennan is my doctor and I only get chest pain once a week or so and I have noticed an amazing decrease in my blood pressure. I have been treated for blood pressure for over 20 years. I have seen very high blood pressure readings due to stress alone. I had panic attacks and severe bouts with tachyacardia. I was on beta-blockers and epically colon. I have seen blood pressure readings as high as 230/195. That put me in the hospital and I was given shots in the stomach. For the last several years I have been on accupul 40mg twice daily, atenolol 50mg twice daily, and novvasc 10mg daily. And about 8 other meds to try to get my top number under 140, which have been mostly unsuccessful.

After getting put back in alignment by Dr. Brennan, I have started seeing miraculous changes in my blood pressure. I'm seeing 120/80, 116/67 which is my new average, and I've even seen a 99/46. The only change that has been made are the SONAR adjustments. My wife and I both are feeling much better.

PS - I was even told that I was crazy and really didn't have chest pains.
