Back and neck pain

I began seeing Dr. Jane the end of June. I had severe neck and back pain with radiation down my right arm with numbness and tingling in the last 2 fingers of my hand. She has worked with me intensively over the last few weeks. I have to say that she has been able to manipulate my spine and neck and alleviated nearly 100% of my back and neck pain. Thank you so much, Dr. Jane

I feel brand new with chiropractic

I have seen Dr. Jane twice now and can already tell a big difference! The scheduling was simple and convenient. During our visit Dr. Jane walked me through our plan of care and was very knowledgeable. After a few adjustments I feel brand new!

Could not have asked for a better chiropractic experience

I could not have asked for a better chiropractic experience. From scheduling my first appointment and all appointments after, discussing my needs and where I would like my body to be functioning, the staff here will absolutely show you that you are a priority. Dr Jane worked with me several times to figure out what the best plan of action was and I always feel like she has my best interest. I would recommend Dr Jane and her staff to any and all.

Pain free with chiropractic

I see Dr. Jane! I started coming in having some pretty painful lower back pain and she fixed me right up in a matter of a months worth on therapy. She has many different methods of therapy and adjustment care depending on what your specific body needs and is very informative. I have been pain free for a few months now ♡♡ The women at the front desk, Makayla and Amber are the best! Super helpful and will help explain things to you no matter how times it takes to sink in 😁😁🤦‍♀️ Thanks, Ladies!

He loves getting adjusted

Dr. Jane has seen my son Zander since he was about 2.5 weeks old. He loves getting adjusted. She has helped with everything from neck issues, due to a difficult labor, to leg and feet issues since he started walking. Our family physician told us that there was nothing they could do for Zander when I first noticed his feet starting to turn in. We were told that his issue wasn’t bad enough to worry about. I knew that Zander falling and constantly tripping was not normal and I definitely didn’t want wait until “it was bad enough” before doing something. I noticed an immediate difference after his adjustment. Now at 2.5 years old, Zander asks to go and see Dr Jane, so she can “fix his legs” as he would say.

Wonderful pain relief

I love going to Dr. Jane! She is very knowledgeable about what she does. She amazes me all the time! I had mentioned a pinch in my neck and that I had been in a meeting at work all day. She knew there was an issue that I didn’t bring up at the meeting at work and it bothered me and that was causing the pinch. I had not told her about the issue. She just knew. That is only one of the amazing things that has occurred throughout my visits to her. I highly recommend her to anyone that may be looking for a chiropractor. Wonderful pain relief with her.

What a relief!

My carpal tunnel syndrome has been 95% relieved for at least 4 years because of treatment and instruction by Cindy Schneider. I had had physical therapy, but it didn’t help. Doctor’s told me that according to my neurological tests results, I needed carpal tunnel surgery. Since I’d heard that it doesn’t always work, I went to the chiropractor who referred me to Cindy. Cindy said that the origin of the carpal tunnel syndrome could be coming down the arms from the muscular area at the spinal base of my neck. She used deep tissue massage several times a month for several months. It was both painful and relieving. She taught me to notice the movements that tightened or loosened the muscles and pinched the nerves in that area. With that understanding I noticed that sleeping with my arm tucked under my head definitely tightened and pinched the area. I decided to go to sleep on my back with my spine quite aligned. If I do roll onto my side, I don’t put my arm up under my head. Now I don’t wake up with severe hand pain and tingling. I can type, write, hold a book, hold the steering wheel without having to keep stopping. What a relief!

I absolutely love coming to see doctor Jane and staff. Everyone is incredibly friendly and make you feel very comfortable and welcome. I have never been to a chiropractor before this and will not go to anyone else. They just put me at ease and make it easy to relax when getting adjusted. Best decision I have made to better my health was to come here!

Feeling better with every appointment

My first appointment I was having some intense pain in my neck. Within 3 visits to Dr. Jane Palmer -Smith my neck pain went from about an 8 out of 10 down to 3 out of 10. I’m still on the mend but feeling better with every appointment.

Highly recommend

I was diagnosed with vertigo – my daughter had seen a sign in Dr. Jane’s therapy room about this condition and how chiropractic therapy can help. I have been going to Dr. Jane for 5 + years and she has definitely helped to control the vertigo. She has helped me to be able to function at work and home! I highly recommend Dr. Jane!

Couldn’t be happier

I started seeing Dr Dean in February, unbelievably frustrated with how my body felt day in and day out. By March I felt like a different person, and today I feel better than I ever have before. Dean does an awesome job at thoroughly educating me on the basics of chiropractic, and how my particular lifestyle contributes to the aches and pains and what I can do to prevent those. It has brought me to be more aware of my body, whether it be my motions, stretches, eating, sleeping habits or so on. I’ve meet with Dr Jane on one a occasion as well, who adjusted me and was very much friendly. On their team, I’ve also met with Duane who recently walked me through every step of my first therapeutic massage. I would highly recommend! The whole staff is personable and friendly. I couldn’t be happier that this is the practice I chose to go with.

Get my life back

After struggling with severe pregnancy related SI and lower back pain for months, Dr. Jane has been the only chiropractor that was able to help get my life back – which is very important for a busy mom ! Her staff is professional and patient, appointments are easily available and I wasn’t expecting to find such a range of comprehensive treatment options and use of different modalities in a “small town”. Highly recommended !!!

Top notch

The Essence of Wellness Chiropractic Center is top notch. I had lower back issues after playing hockey for only 30 min the next 45 min was played with pain. I met with the staff and Dr. Smith and we set up a treatment plan. I was able to play hockey again for the full hour and a half pain free. I also had hip issues later on and with adjustments and exercise I was able to extend the life of my hip. My mother was a patient also and was relieved of her lower back pain. You won’t find a better chiropractic service than Essence of Wellness.

Miracle workers!!!!!

Dr. Jane Smith and Cindy Schneider,OTR, are truly miracle workers!!!!! I had decided to start exercising regularly, trying to get ready for a hiking trip I wanted to go on. I pushed my body a bit too far and I injured my neck, back, and shoulder doing Zumba. Let’s just say my body rightfully rebelled because I had been neglecting it for years, with lack of regular exercise and mediocre diet. Now, I’ve dealt with back pain my whole life, so I figured the pain would let up and I’d be feeling better in a day or two. I was wrong and the pain continued to get worse! I finally decided to make an appointment at Essence of Wellness and took the 1st available appointment with Dr. Jane. that I could get. I had seen Dr. Jane and Cindy Schneider years before after I had been a passenger in a minor car accident. I remembered how much they had helped me then. So, I called to make an appointment and I got in 2/23/2018 and my life has truly changed for the better in so many ways since then. Dr. Jane assessed me and told me my body was full of inflammation. She not only gave me chiropractic care that first appointment, but she also had me get laser therapy, and a chair massage. She also recommended a couple supplements and a body detox diet to help reduce inflammation. The diet wasn’t easy at first, but I was in so much pain I was willing to do anything at that point. The diet, plus the supplements, combined with my first couple treatments with Dr. Jane had me feeling like a new person! I was sleeping the best I had in years! I truly could not believe how much better I felt. Well, it was just the beginning…. Dr. Jane recommended I also see Cindy Schneider who is an Occupational Therapist at Essence of Wellness and Dr. Jane remebered how the combined treatments had helped me so much before. I was very excited to find out my insurance might cover both types of treatment. By the way, I cannot forget to mention Amber and Makayla! They are fantastic and help Essence of Wellness run smoothly. They helped get my insurance to cover my treatments and they are great at their jobs of scheduling, dealing with the insurance companies, and administering the laser therapy and other treatments Dr. Jane has me get. Well, to make a very long story a bit shorter….it is now April and I truly feel like a new woman! I have lost 16 lbs. My brain fog has lifted, I have spring in my step for the first time in a long time! My pain has gone down quite a bit! I feel like a new woman! I really noticed how much my body is starting to feel better, after riding in a car for almost 16 hours to go visit family in Florida for Easter. Typically a car ride like that would mean lots of stops due to pain and discomfort. The car ride was so much easier this time! I couldn’t believe how different my body felt! I’ve still got a ways to go with my continued treatment, but I just had to do a review now, because Essence of Wellness has truly changed my life for the better! Dr. Jane, Cindy, Amber, and Makayla I cannot thank you wonderful ladies enough! Much Love & Gratitude, ~Jen~ ♡

So thankful for them

Never having been to a chiropractor, I started here as physical therapy for broken leg/ankle years ago and haven’t stopped. From the front desk Ladies, to Patti, Massage Therapist, to the Doctors, I could not give them a higher rating. All of them go above and beyond their jobs to give maximum help and care for me. They relieve pain in the body, stress in the soul, and make paying for services as simple and easy as possible because of their hard work, and I am so thankful for them.

Feel very welcome

Initially went to Dr Smith for my arthritic knees. Also, I had been on medication for shoulder/neck pain for some time but was also in constant pain and just thought it was something I would have to live with. After the initial visit and talking through my concerns was able to make a plan which has resulted in no shoulder/neck pain and vast improvement in my posture and knees. Also, her recommendations of nutrition and exercise have been invaluable. I always feel very welcome every time I go in. I have recommended her services to several of my friends.

Great service and really care

Our family has been coming to this office for years. They offer great service and really care about their patients. Both Dr. Jane and Dr. Dean have a wide variety of knowledge in different yet complimentary areas. They offer not only Chiropractic care, but Nutritional Counseling, Occupational/Manual Therapy, Massage and MUCH MUCH more. I have had the privilege of working with the Smiths in the past. After leaving to pursue opportunities in Oxford-where I currently live-I have returned and work to compliment their Chiropractic business. They say that you can’t go home again, but it this case, i feel like I am home! This is a place for the whole family.

Now pain free

I started going to Essence of Wellness last summer (July or so) after my neck had been in constant pain for way too long (6 weeks or more). Doctor Jane and her staff got me back to my normal quickly and painlessly. My neck situation felt delicate and Jane reliably provided delicate support and adjustment as needed. I am now pain free.

Highly recommend Essence of Wellness

I have been a patient of Essence of Wellness for many years. Chiropractic adjustments can be scary, and Dr. Dean and Dr. Jane always make me feel very comfortable. I no longer worry about getting adjusted because I trust them. The office staff is very helpful and friendly. Dr. Dean and Dr. Jane are excellent health and nutrition resources. They offer a variety of supplements. I personally have used the probiotics and nanogreens. I highly recommend Essence of Wellness.

What I was hoping it would be

My experience with Essence of Wellness is just what I was hoping it would be. I needed a determination of my debilitating issues so I could do something about them. Dr. Dean Smith gave me a a thorough evaluation, taking my past issues of polio into consideration and helped me find modalities I could use beyond his work on my S.I. joint which started the ball rolling in the right direction. Because I took his advice, and worked on my issues at home as well, I know what to do and who to go to if I need further help–Essence of Wellness.

Doubtful it would work

For many years I did not believe in chiropractor services and did not think it would work. My wife had scoliosis of the back and she would always go to them and said they did wonders for her. I got a job where I have to drive 110 miles one way and started to develop back problems to the point it was hard to just sit down or walk or bend in certain ways.

I visited Doctor Dean and was still very doubtful it would work. He had me lay on my stomach and he placed a fist under my spine and rocked me back onto his fist. I went from a pain level of 9 to a level of 2 in a matter of 5 seconds. Over the course of the next 4 months I continued to have back pains but each adjustment made it a little better. He also gave me a series of stretches to help keep my back relaxed and stretched out.

I finally found out my wallet I was sitting on was causing me to sit uneven and put my spine out of adjustment. This was over 3 years ago and I have not had any problems since. If I do have any back problems I will make sure I visit Doctor Dean as soon as it starts to flare up again. I would highly recommend Essence of Wellness to anyone that has back problems to get them corrected there.

Takes the time

Dr. Dean has brought me back from being unable to stand up straight to walking tall multiple times. He has a vast amount of knowledge that gives him the ability to understand all of my skeletal and muscular physical issues. From the ganglion cyst on my wrist to the neck and spine pain from degenerative joint disease, he has given me mobility I need to perform at my job, and allows me to do daily activities that most people take for granted, like household chores, driving and dressing myself. Every time I come to see him, he takes the time to find out what is making my problem worse or better, and works to get me back on track in the shortest amount of time possible. I would recommend that everyone see a chiropractor
