Dr. Zachary Ward has made the most significant impact on my health. I no longer suffer daily from IBS which I have dealt with for over 25 years. Without twisting my neck or back my quality of like has improved. Now that I’m in alignment the tremors in my hands have ceased. The rash that in the past which covered 80% of my face has cleared up. What is amazing is I only went in for the small pain in my lower back. It has been eliminated and I can walk for hours. I didn’t know that being in alignment meant that my body could heal itself. Four health issues have been corrected, life is great.

–Renee P. (From a Google Places Review)

“Within the first two weeks it was incredible: The migraines were going away. There were less and less every week. And the pressure I had since the accident was gone. I would recommend it to anyone. Come and try it out.”

–Megan P. (watch her video)

“…The explanation and the solution offered are extremely logical.”

–Mike L. (read more here)

“The most surprising to me is that I’m holding the alignment for so long for right now. It’s been a month since the last adjustment and I’ve been still headache free since then.”

–Mary R. (listen to her story here)

“First of all Dr. Ward is amazing. He’s so passionate and upbeat about what he does. You can come in feeling awful and leave feeling like you’ve got the world licked.”

–Candy A. (listen to her story here)

“I think the most surprising thing for me was actually being able to see in the mirror that I was misaligned. And that I could see in the mirror, after the fact, the change right away. I didn’t think that right after an adjustment be able to see a difference. That was the most astonishing to me, I think, to see my head tipping one way, and my shoulders sloping, and having that evidence of what was going on inside”

–Francine W. (listen to her story here)

“My balance is improving, plus my blood pressure has come down…I check my blood pressure everyday, and it’s holding at under 130 (systolic).”

–Jim T. (read more here)

“I was surprised at the gentleness of the corrections! A lot different than the other types of chiropractic I had a long time ago.”

–Katherine B. (read more here)

“The fact that I could get off the [pain] medicine is the most surprising.”

A Message from Dr. Ward

Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog, Raising Wellness. I hope you have found some information here that has helped or inspired you.

I am a student of life, a lover of learning, a father of 4 children, and husband to my best friend, my awesome wife. The mission of my chiropractic practice is simple: to get you believe in health again, by using a little known, yet powerful procedure that’s been featured on Good Morning America, PBS Chicago, and Discovery Health.

This website may be your first exposure to NUCCA upper cervical chiropractic care, but it won’t be your last. Many years ago NUCCA gave me a powerful healing experience, which restored my hope in the self-healing power of the body. It’s a hope that I want you to share with me.
