Chiropractic Symptom: Motor Vehicle Accident

Hi my name is Marci.

My life started out like this; Back in June of 2000 I was in a car accident out of this my spine was twisted. I had a hard time standing on my feet and I could not sleep. My hands would go to sleep. I hurt!

Then one Saturday morning I was listening to Mary's radio show. She has Dr. Elliott and Dr. Lori on the program at that time talking about their miracle and how it has helped me and others also. The miracle of living again without pain. There are those days when you do a little more than you should but overall there is great improvement so listen to the doctors, they can help.

God be with you,


Dear Dr. Lori,

I hope your birthday was happy yesterday! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the way you helped me feel better, both physically and mentally. I never knew much about the bones in my body, except that if they hurt you'd best go to a chiropractic clinic and get them knocked back in place.

I had the accident in November and never a day went by that I could actually say I felt good. I was convinced that my head, neck and shoulder pain was expected. After all, I had to fractures and a concussion, so I couldn't expect to feel the same. My medical doctor told me nothing's wrong that he can find so just take Ibuprofen. Which I did. But it didn?t take the pain away. Finally it was more pressure than actual pain. I was pooped all the time and had no energy, but had to go on. I have a husband and three teenage boys living at home, so it takes a lot of work just to keep up with the house work, baking, cooking, cleaning, sewing, and laundry. Then spring came and time for garden and flower beds. I have always had lots of flowers and loved to tend to them. This summer I had to force myself and my flowers are nothing to proud of.

I got to the place where I didn't want to go anywhere and if we were with a group of friends or relatives I would often take a child and or a few children and play them, go for a walk or just tell them a story. I just got nervous sitting and trying to relax. In plain words I did not enjoy life. I prayed for for Lord to help me and show me what to do. I guess I was in a state of depression. I often cried for no reason, it seemed but I hurt. Some people just couldn't understand so one day I was talking with Aunt Susie and I started crying, she wondered what was wrong and I said I don't know. Then I broke down and told her how I felt, that was the first time I really allowed myself to tell anyone.

So she said You need help, and you need it now! She said If the MD's say nothing's wrong I'm going she is going to take me to you. I hesitated because I knew I couldn't without my husband's permission. I also knew he was a found believer in the rough chiropractors. I couldn't blame him, he grew up in a family that all took treatments. [And all had bad back problems now] Susie made an appointment right there before I left her house. And I kept praying for an answer for the next two week, and my husband said I may go. Although he didn't getting expect me to get help.

Now here I am on August 17th feeling like a new person. So I can't thank the Lord enough for all he's done and also Susie and certainly you and Dr. Elliot for everything you've done. I had no idea what shape I was in, but it must have been bad, because I sure feel a lot better now.

Thank you for also helping my brother yesterday he was hurting so bad and was very miserable sitting four hours in Susie's car. But on the way home he talked and laughed like everyone else.



I thought I was going to have a massive heart attack or stroke. All symptoms such as arm pain across my back, my legs, pain up the neck to my head convinced me I would die. Who knows what the result of my problem was, maybe an auto accident, a fall, a jar, or an emotional shock. However there was an extreme emotional stress ever present. I started with hurting numbness in my legs and arms. I just couldn't move unless I had to. I had absolutely no energy!! I wanted to die! I prayed. I had these problems for 2 years. I had no normal life, no activities. I hurt the people in my life because I was so angry and in so much pain physically and emotionally and I though I was going to die. I told no one because I knew they wouldn't believe me. I went to two doctors and they just put me on pain meds and wanted to operate on me, and the other did a stress test and blood work, poking needles up and down both my arms, and the nurse called 2 weeks later and said nothing was wrong.

I had listened to Dr. Mary Schrick for 2 years and one day after God and I had had a serious talk. I went to see her the day after that, and she immediately got up and called you. I started care at Elliott SONAR on September 26, 2006. Elliott SONAR and the Doctor's are great. I feel like God put an angel in my life. They gentle and caring. They just really cares for people. On September 28th at 4:28pm I woke up with no pain anywhere and I could roll over - I woke up alive again and I feel like my life is meaningful again. I'm trying to get my family here and other people also. I'm on a mission for people who think there's no hope. I feel so sad for them, there are many many out there. I haven't been into any classes, I told the Doctor's I might just move here to help! This place, most importantly the people with their loving eyes smiles and care have been as precious to me as anything in my healing. I don't have enough paper to tell how this treatment has helped me, but I am laughing again


I was having bad shoulder pain that I'm assuming was caused by just the general wear and tear of life, or stress, or perhaps a car accident I had, I'm not really sure. I began around 6 to 9 months ago having tightness and soreness in my left shoulder. The constant pain kept me from being creative and from wanting to do every day chores or jobs. I was constantly trying to find a way to become comfortable. I found out about Elliott Center of Chiropractic thorough a friend who was already a patient and began my care in April of 2007. I see Dr. Lori Sprague and she is very caring and super gentle.

I was 11 degrees out of alignment, which is significant to say the least, and it took several treatments for my body to stay in alignment. The first treatment realigned my spine, but my muscles didn't like their new location, so it took them a while to build up the strength to keep me in alignment. My son Randy has ankle losening ipodalites, an arthritis condition. His first treatment got him back in alignment and he stayed in and he is doing great. I really feel that everyone could benefit from this treatment and we need to give our bodies time to heal. We abuse our bodies through the years of life and we shouldn't expect immediate results but with Elliott SONAR treatment and time we can alleviate that pain. Being out of alignment can cause many different pains and it could manifest itself in a week area so I really feel we should keep and open mind to this kind of treatment, I personally am very pleased with my results.
