Norma W., Age 62 doesn't need a hearing aid anymore!
"I met Dr. Wickwire at an event at Kirkwood in March. He was offering free spinal screenings. I decided to give it a shot. I made an appointment at his office for x-rays. I have battled poor hearing and ear infections my whole life. I have had surgery on my right ear. I had been wearing a hearing aid in my left ear. After a few adjustments, I noticed a difference. One evening I was in the kitchen and could hear the T.V. in the living room. Normally, I can not hear this. I went into the living room to check the level of the T.V. and it was set at 22, my normal level. I could turn it down to 18 and still hear it in the kitchen. I hadn’t done anything different besides my adjustments with Dr. Wickwire. My hearing has increased with his help. NO surgeries, NO meds, and NO hearing aid!"
Linda S. Age 63
"I have always had a busy, active life. Lately, I have noticed some stiffness in my neck and back after walking. When I looked in the mirror I would see rounded shoulders and back. I am 63 and figured this was part of getting older.
Dr. Wickwire was at Lindale Mall sharing chiropractic care information and on a spur of the moment, I made an appointment with him. This turned out to be one of the best health decisions I have made. I felt so good before going to Dr. WIckwire and in all truthfulness, saw no reason to go to a chiropractor. Since going to Dr. Wickwire, I can say I feel GREAT. I can not believe the difference in my back after walking or sitting on the bleachers at one of my grandchild's sporting or music events. I have also noticed a difference in the roundness of my shoulders and my quality of sleep has greatly improved. Thank you Dr. Wickwire"
Deb N. Age 54
"It was the Saturday before Christmas and I was at Lindale Mall. As I was leaving a store and looking in my purse for my list of things to do, I was approached by Kim, Dr. Wickwire’s wife wanting to know if I would be interested in a free consultation. As always, I was in a hurry and told her I did not have time. However, she continued to carry on a conversation as I continued to look for my list. Kim was very pleasant, so I finally gave in and said, “You know what, I do have some issues.” She took me to their booth where I met Dr. Wickwire and scheduled my appointment.
I must admit, I did ask myself, “What have I gotten myself into now,” as I knew nothing about Dr. Wickwire, only that I had just met his wife who seemed very sincere and very pleasant. I kept my appointment, as for many years my lower back and hips have bothered me. I was not able to lie on my side for more than five minutes without having to change sides and would also have problems riding in the car and sitting for a long period of time without fidgeting.
Arriving for my first appointment I was greeted by Melissa, who was also very friendly and puts you at ease. After visiting with Dr. Wickwire I was convinced he could help me, little did I know that I had more problems than just my lower back and hips! I had never told him I had taken a hard fall over twenty years ago. The first thing he asked me when reviewing my x-rays was “you must have been in a bad car accident a long time ago, like maybe twenty years or more.” I said “no, but I did take a bad fall on the ice.” My x-ray showed my neck had severe degeneration!
He admitted he may not be able to help my neck, as it’s been that way for a long time, but would be able to fix my lower back and hips. After the first treatment, I was really impressed! I had no idea my neck was as bad as it was. I guess when you live with something that long; you get used to being that way. When I got in my car to leave, I was able to turn my neck to see to back up! I was used to turning my whole body to see. I’m totally amazed at how easily my neck turns and I’m also not fidgeting when I’m lying down, riding in the car or sitting. My experience was a big “WOW” for me and I will continue my adjustments."
