In March 2011, I started having light-headedness and some dizziness. I went to the doctor for a check up and they did lab work which was normal. I started to have light-headedness at least once every month for a few days. It was hard to work and especially drive. I went to the doctor a few more times and was treated for sinus infection and allergies with no relief. I was referred to get a CT of the head which was normal and then to an ENT and Audiologist with no diagnosis. I was then referred to a Neurologist which I could not get in to for an appointment for 3 months. I then started having neck weakness, pain on the back of the head and some hand numbness along with my other symptoms.
My sister Chris who works for Dr. Andrea said that I should go see her that maybe she could help with my symptoms and find some answers. I started getting adjustments in February 2012 and my neck, shoulders and head are feeling so much better and I have not had any light-headedness since the end of January 2012.
I am very thankful to Dr. Andrea and staff for helping me feel good everyday.
Dr. Andrea, I just want to take this opportunity to tell you a few things. When I came to see you I was in a lot of back pain, but I’m sure you’ve come to know that I was hurting in a lot of ways. With all that you have done for me, you have not just helped me with my back but with a lot of stress and strain from every day problems. Let me tell you that you’ve been there for me as a therapist, a doctor, a psychiatrist, a spiritual lift and a friend.
I want to thank you for all of these reasons and most of all may god bless you and keep you.
My name is Helen. I am 53 years old, and at the age of 49 was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I have been trying to find help for pain management with the assistance of a Rheumatologist and my Medical Doctor. At my last visit to my Rheumatologist, she suggested that I try to find a Chiropractor that may be able to help relieve some of the pain. I spoke with some friends who suggested Dr. Andrea. What a great choice that was! Dr. Andrea and her staff made me feel like I was important.
During my first visit, I found out that I had a lot of problem areas. Dr. Andrea took her time, and started my first two sessions off slowly to ensure that my muscles were not worked too much too soon. Now, only 4 weeks into the program, I feel so much relief! I never realized that I could have so much less pain. It helps knowing that even when I am having a bad day, that I can now move through the pain.
I would like for others with this illness to know that this pain is real, but you can find help! Visit pro Andrea! She is very encouraging and uplifting!
We’re writing to thank you for what you’ve done for our son, Brandon. You have really ?helped him. As a mother, I’m sure you understand what it’s like to “feel” your child’s pain. We’ve done this with Brandon for too long. Since he has been old enough to talk, he has told us his head hurts. He had headaches and migraines at least once a week.
We have tried for years to figure out what’s causing his headaches and how to prevent them. Often we’d agree that Brandon shouldn’t do an activity because it might cause him to get a migraine. We feel like we had tried everything to stop or prevent them with no success. This past summer, Brandon asked us to make him an appointment with you. I admit I was a little skeptical, in the past I had a bad experience with a chiropractor.
As Brandon persisted with his request and we continued to see him in pain, we finally agreed. We appreciate how you explained everything to us. We could see that you really care about your patients. You always take time to talk about any concerns we have about Brandon’s life, not just his headaches. You are an awesome doctor. Brandon seldom gets headaches now. As a parent, it feels so much better not to give him medication. Thank you for changing Brandon’s life. He no longer makes decisions based on whether he might get a headache or not. We praise God for you and what you’ve done for our son.
Thanks for helping Brandon and changing my opinion about what chiropractors can do. We are all believers! God Bless!

Thank you so much for making my body feel better from head to toe. When I first came to you, I was unaware that chiropractic treatments could help so many different. problem areas. I have been, and continue to be, educated each time I visit your office.
I’ve suffered from headaches for at least twenty years, usually having at least one per’ week. During the four months that you have treated me I have had approximately five or six headaches total, which seems like a miracle.
I also have carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands, which woke me many nights with my hands being so numb I could barely move my fingers. Now only occasionally do I feel slight tingling in my fingers; I feel confident that with further treatments, you will have prevented me from needinq surgery on both hands.
I’ve had both severe and mild flare-ups with my sciatic nerve over the years. The”crack and twist” method of treatment sometimes took two to four weeks before I felt relief. When you first treated me, there were many click, click, clicks as you went down my spine getting me into shape: On my last visit there were only two clicks.
In my four months of treatment I haven’t had any sciatic pain. I hope your practice grows and you continue to educate more people. Thank you!
I had lower back pain as a result of cutting firewood. After lying around for 4 consecutive weekends, I decided to give a local Chiropractor a shot. I made 4 trips to this ?Chiropractor over a 2 week period and every time I sneezed, it was back to square one. ?One day while conversing with a co-worker, he referred me to you. Then while talking with a family member. she also referred me to the same place. I was extremely skeptic. But, hey, what did I have to lose? By now, it had been 1 month and I still couldn’t cut firewood, workout, etc.
I was blown away at my first appointment at the technology the staff used. They performed scans of my back and feet, as well as took pictures of my posture. On the second appointment, Dr. Andrea sat me down and explained what the scans showed and how she was going to proceed with my treatment. I stayed committed and paid close attention to the therapy the staff recommended. I was pain free in approximately 1 month and able to get my firewood cut and go hunting. I could not have asked for any nicer staff. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone I encounter with back pain.
I am one of the most skeptical people you will ever meet. I went into this experience with an open mind. Let’s face it, I was down with my back and was desperate to try anything to get even slightly better. Now, I am a firm believer in Dr. Andrea’s Chiropractic.
The doctor and friendly staff will do everything in their power to make you a success story as well!
I am a seventy seven year old male that has had severe right hip and leg pain for months. I went to physical therapy for about three months without 100% satisfaction. Then I went to a chiropractor for another three months without the satisfaction that I thought I should have accomplished.
Now I am under the care of Dr. Andrea. I am now doing the activities that I love doing such as yard work, cutting grass, swimming, cleaning and waxing my automobiles, shoveling snow and just about anything that I desire doing.
My activity was really limited before going to Dr. Andrea. I would highly recommend visiting her office to get your health back.
