Weekly maintenance keeps me in great shape!

The staff at the practice are very cheery, helpful and knowledgeable and Dr. Brent is a very personable doctor and very knowledgeable on many, many levels. He has helped me with many joint problems I have had and I find if I go to Dr. Brent for a weekly maintenance visit he keeps me in great shape. Have recommended him to many friends and will continue to do so as I believe he can make a difference in a lot of people’s lives.

I can practically FEEL good health within…after years of medication!

When I met Dr. Brent Lipke at a presentation, he struck me as knowledgeable with his unbiased discourse. He is clearly intent on helping people become healthy teaching a holistic approach… mind, body and spirit. To make physical adjustments is not enough for complete health, if we are eating in an unhealthy manner and hooked on pharmaceuticals which treat symptoms and have the potential to exacerbate an more»

I felt lasting relief with my first adjustment and months later can easily run several kilometers and do yoga at age 58!  I now have increased flexibility like years ago. I can practically feel good health within, as energy moves through my body in an unobstructed manner… let me add, after years of meditation, I am very much in tune to internal sensations. I recall asking Dr Brent once if my arm would indeed get better…. a period of time later, the ache is forgotten as it no longer exists. I am grateful for the care I receive at the Family Chiropractic Centre.

No more vertigo

Prior to 1 year ago, my health was going downhill FAST. I had developed vertigo, blackout spells, sprained both ankles and had lost my license for 2 years. That’s when I decided to seek help from Family Chiropractic Centre. Since then my health has made a big turn around. Family Chiropractic taught me to eat healthier, and exercise along with their treatments. since I started I have lost a lot of weight, eat healthier and exercise.

My stress level is low and I haven’t had a blackout spell for a year now. At Christmas I just got my drivers license back! My freedom to drive again was the BEST Christmas present ever! I live a better life due to all of their help and FREE health seminars. I learned a lot from Family Chiropractic Centre. Thank you all so much for my new life. Such a friendly place!

I stopped using all medication & my cane

After suffering almost a year of pain from my left hip to my ankle and having no relief with physiotherapy or anti-inflammatory drugs, I met Dr Brent at the Family Chiropractic Centre.  Not long after starting treatment I stopped using all medication and my cane.  I have continued with regular maintenance visits and have been quite well and pain free ever since.

Off Lyrical & Lipitor & lost 80lbs!

I have been receiving treatment from Family Chiropractic for almost 2 years now and I would like to share with everyone how they have educated and helped me into getting my health back. I originally hurt my back when I had a bicycle accident that was, actually, quite unremarkable. My front tire stuck in some mud and I struggled to hold my balance before tumbling over, slowly, onto the ground. I dusted myself off and continued on, thinking nothing of the accident, until the coming weeks when I became aware of a burning sensation deep in my back.

As time went on the burning became more intense, I was having trouble lying on that side, sleep was next to impossible and finally, just having the fabric of my shirt brush up against the affected area, caused intense pain. To make matters worse the pain started to radiate to other parts of my back, up to my neck and down my arm causing numbness in my fingers. I finally booked an appointment with my family doctor. The first thing she focused on was my internal organs with ultra sounds, MRI’s and CAT more»

Finally, after 6 months, these ruled out what she thought was a problem with my liver. During this time I was put on a quite powerful drug called Lyrica which is thought to reduce the electrical stimulation to overstimulated nerves. I was also on Lipitor at this time as I had ballooned from 260 to 315 lbs due to the total lack of exercise and stress eating. I was then referred to an Orthopedist (muscular/skeletal specialist) who referred me to a sports physician, who had me go to a physiotherapist. This helped for about ½ hour after the visit so I sought out other avenues that I thought might help. I tried an osteopath, which helped a little more, but again, I saw little relief for short periods of time, with really no long term hope for getting healed. Everything up to that point seemed to focus on pain management, where I was looking for pain elimination.

Finally, out of desperation, I went to Family Chiropractic and saw Dr Dan Vitale. I never really knew what chiropractic involved and I was very sceptical that any progress would be made. I felt immense relief after the first adjustment, I was far from cured but the amount of pressure relieved from my back was quite remarkable. I continued on for several months and during this time I started feeling better for longer periods of time. Also during this time, all of the doctors and staff at the clinic started talking to me about 4 other important systems that I might want to look into to maximise my health.

I was really surprised and therefore intrigued, that they found these other factors just as important as nerve flow. After all, these were chiropractors and I figured they would just stress the one aspect over all others. The four other components were your mind, nutrition, exercise and toxin avoidance. I went to community outreach education seminars they put on and kept an open mind while sitting through the information seminars. Since the adjustments helped me so much, I was very motivated to see if I could get tips in other areas that might help my health.

The seminars were included in the fee already charged for chiropractic care, and again, a lot that was said made sense to me. If it didn’t make sense, I asked and it usually was clarified or I searched through other resources, just to make sure that things made medical sense I have now lost 80 lbs and am off all of my medications. One of the products in the ISAGENIX system was specifically formulated to flush out the toxins from your fat cells. I am now sure my body was not screaming for food, it was screaming for nutrients. My appetite is satisfied quite easily and I don’t crave food all of the time anymore. Not only have I lost the weight, but I have noticed a dramatic decrease in the amount of inflammation that I have in my joints and also my back.

I am now going to the gym for an hour 4-5 days a week (never thought I had the time until I started writing down how much time everyday I spent watching television or reading). Not only do I look forward to it, but I am actually doing quite well in the cardio exercises, which I have always hated. Now, I can last for an hour on the elliptical machine and I come off of it invigorated and ready to go.

I love the fact that Family Chiropractic has come up with a whole system that can get you back on track with life, instead of just focusing on one area of health and disregarding other, just as important areas. I especially appreciate the information I received on nutrition which was worth it’s weight in gold to me.I would highly recommend you go to a few seminars. Take family or friends, listen critically to what is being said, compare it to what you already know and research what you are not sure of or ask for clarification from the staff.

No doctor or medicine or therapy is going to heal your body…one thing that has been drilled into me is that only your body can heal and only if it has the tools to the healing. I have no doubt that the staff at Family Chiropractic can show you how.

No more headaches

I have been in chiropractic care for close to 11 years while living in the north end of Guelph. Back last October we moved to the south end of Guelph. I cancelled my chiropractic care in the north end of Guelph last April so there was a period of about 6 months where I stopped having chiropractic care due to our lengthy move.

In that time I noticed my lower back pain was coming back including my headaches and the wax buildup in my ears. Finally In November I started to go to Family Chiropractic Centre. First may I say the staff at Family Chiropractic Centre are very friendly and always greet you with a smile when you walk in to their office. I have been going there under the care of Dr. Frank Dallan who is also very courteous and takes a very serious and keen interest in your chiropractic care and continually explains what he is doing and the benefits you will have and notice.

Since I have been in his care I have noticed very little to no pain in my lower back allowing me to go on my daily walks. Before I went for Chiropractic care I had a major buildup of wax in my ears to the point where it actually plugged up my ears having difficulty hearing and had to use ear drops and flush them out. Now in the last month or so I have not had to do this anymore.

The other benefits I have noticed are no more headaches and I can count on 1 hand the number of times I had the flu or a cold and when I did they were not severe or lengthy. With Dr. Frank now keeping my spine in line and with my neck adjustments I know I am benefiting from his chiropractic care.

Immediate Results

I am very happy. After 2 weeks I am standing 2 inches taller because of the treatments that I have received. I noticed immediate results after the first treatment, i.e. being able to take in a full breath of air and being able to put my head against the headrest in my car (for the first time ever). I do not believe in treating any health issues that relieve the symptoms, and do nothing for treating the cause. I am so thankful for having found the FCC on-line and am looking forward to continuing to increase my physical and spiritual wellness, receiving the prescribed adjustments. Many thanks to Brent and all of the staff.
