The strong pain medication I was on did not do anything to stop the pain. I knew I needed a different approach. HANDS ON CORRECTION! The x-rays showed the damage and Dr. Ryan had the knowledge and skills to re-align my neck and back. It’s really important that you find a Dr. who believes that he can truly improve your health and well being. He and his awesome staff can change your life. PAIN NO MORE!!
I started coming to Dr. Ryan for an issue with my shoulder/arm. It started as an annoying tingling sensation which ultimately became so painful with complete loss of function and range of motion. I was literally holding my bad arm up by crossing it under my chest with my other arm. I couldn’t use it anymore- everything was so difficult; washing my hair, driving, sleeping, even just reaching for a glass. My sister recommended a chiropractor after my PCP told me I had arthritis in my neck and I should try stretching. Really…stretching? So I gave chiropractic a shot, because I didn’t feel like I had any other options. It has been the most transforming experience ever. My arm was fully functional after a few visits and pain/tingle free after about 5 months. It had also changed my view of the field. In my ignorance- I was fully aware that a chiropractor could benefit people with back injuries, I had no idea how many ailments could be attributed to a misaligned neck/spine. The benefits have been amazing- I sleep better, and rarely get headaches anymore. I am well aware of the CNS and how it affects everything- digestion, pain sensors, vertigo- the list goes on. I just never connected, in my own head, the benefits of caring for your spine. This has been the most meaningful experience, I would highly recommend MV Wellness to anyone struggling with any nerve issues.
Dr. Ryan is amazing. I’ve dealt with back pain almost my entire adult life due to sports. Not only has Dr. Ryan helped my pain, but he has also gone above and beyond to help keep me healthy. He is attentive, kind, and always willing to help. I would not be the athlete I am today without him! And on top of that, I am much healthier overall as a person.
I had a significant birthday this summer and wanted to work on my health. I have small children and wanted to be able to play with them on the floor and outside at the park. I feel much better after starting the 8 Weeks To Wellness program. I am much more observant about what I eat. My joints aren’t hurting every time I walk. I am able to play on the floor easier with the kids and have more stamina. My blood sugars are much better and my hemoglobin A1C dropped immediately which was amazing. Though the first week was so tough having a friend going through it with me helped tremendously! I wasn’t hungry and after the first week I could already tell I was feeling better and my blood sugar was much better post meals and during the day. This journey is totally worth it and I will continue to stay on this healthy path for the future. Every other diet or eating plan left me hungry and frustrated about measuring and counting calories. This eating plan left me full, choosing the right foods was easier than I thought. Eating healthy and making good choices made me feel good about eating and it was more like a reward vs a diet. I recently saw my endocrinologist and she was very happy! My HGB A1C is down to 5.5 from 9.6 in 3 months. Plus I lost 20 lbs! She took me off my insulin and I am elated I will see her again in 3 months with more good news I know it. Thank you In8 Wellness Center for changing my life for me and my family.
Just a few months ago I was about ready to give up on CrossFit, pain in my low back and hip were preventing me from completing many of the movements. A visit to Dr. Ryan Hewitt was the answer, he identified some long term damage in my back and hip (not from CrossFit) and put together a plan to correct it. With the adjustments I have better positioning and joint stability and have hit 4 PR’s in the last week including overhead squats. As an added bonus I feel much better as well.
I originally came to Dr. Ryan because I was experiencing lower back pain that severely limited my ability to walk. A trip to my mailbox was very painful! I felt great relief after my first week of adjustments and I have been a faithful patient ever since! More recently I found myself in a very dark place after being retired for a year. I was diagnosed with arthritis in my left hip and knee. I became less and less active. I found myself in a place where I was losing muscle. Simply standing up became excruciating. Dr. Ryan recommended 8 Weeks to Wellness which included exercising. I thought he was out of his mind! I didn’t think there was any way that I could exercise and I was truly scared! That was a year ago! Through the gentle coaching and nonjudgmental leadership of Dr. Ryan, Kendra, and Jill I can say that I have muscles! Exercises are modified to fit my needs. The generalized pain that I had all over my body is gone. A year later I am a faithful gym member! This is definitely my greatest success! I would recommend Dr. Ryan and his practice to everyone whether you want to maintain your healthy body or are experiencing pain. It took me a long time to realize I have to put the work in to take care of myself. Don’t wait as long as I did. Enjoy a happy, healthy life through In8 Wellness Center.
It’s crazy what I was tolerating before I came to see Dr. Ryan. On a daily basis, I was twisting my back to get comfortable and turning my neck every which way to feel a little better. I had headaches and slouched. It’s silly what I thought was ok; to be in pain and uncomfortable. After a few adjustments, I couldn’t believe how amazing I felt – I was walking tall, pain-free and with no more headaches! Now, I am like a walking advertisement! Not only do I have my own personal problems that have gotten better, if not resolved, but there are so many more issues that can be relieved if not cured by the proper chiropractic care. I would highly recommend Dr. Ryan Hewitt and his team. Bonus: Their smiling friendly faces are always a pleasure to see!
I came to see Dr. Ryan because I was on the verge of having discectomy surgery on my L5/S1. I was suffering from sciatic pain down my right side. At my initial meeting with Dr. Ryan, I was a bit skeptical, but after a few weeks I felt so much improvement. The conservative approach has been a long path, but I am almost back to 100% and I feel great! Dr. Ryan has been with me every step of the way and has helped me get back into prime form. The pain I suffered before coming here was relentless, but the progress I have made there is lifelong. I would recommend Dr. Ryan to anyone that is in need of chiropractic services.
My care at MVWC has been great! Flexible hours have really helped with my schedule. Dr. Ryan and staff have been very friendly and take my health very seriously. When I first started my back/neck pain was constant, without relief. Today my pain is at least 95% better than the day I started. I like MVWC because it is not just an ordinary chiropractic practice. Dr. Ryan is a former athlete like myself and cares a lot about my general health not just my back/neck. I’ve realized that chiropractic care is not just for my back but my all around health. I cannot thank Dr. Ryan and his staff enough for what they have done for my health.
I have had chronic back pain and migraines for years. I’ve tried every medication and procedure out there, including Botox and spinal injections – all with no results. I wanted to try a natural and healthy approach to pain relief. I have had a positive response to chiropractic care. My posture was improved, migraines reduced, and we are continuing to work on my back pain. I would encourage everyone to try chiropractic. It could have an amazing impact on your life and it’s risk-free. Don’t you owe it to yourself to take care of the only body you have?
