Feeling better. –Jim N.

My TN is gone, gait showing signs of improvement

How would you describe your health before you began receiving your spinal corrections? Many things felt off in my body, but my main concern was the TN symptoms I had partly due to stress and something bad going on with a nerve in my neck/head area.
What is it that you heard or read that made you decide to choose my office for chiropractic care? Were you somewhat skeptical?
A referral I got from a nurse that had great results with Dr. Zach. She mentioned him because I was venting about my symptoms to her. I heard upper cervical spine chiropractors get great results and are more gentle, which I’m finding is very true.
What are benefits that you’ve noticed since you’ve begun upper cervical chiropractic care? 1. My TN is gone! I read horrible things about how people suffer with it because they didn’t know that upper cervical care can be a solution and a better solution to other things.
2. My gait is showing signs of improvement. 3. My low back pain has lessened.
