First thing I want to say is, I am feeling so much better. I can't tell you how much pain I was in. From the top of my spine, into my neck, the numbness ran into my arms and down into my hands and fingers. The pain had built up over time. My fingers were also starting to swell and I could not wear my wedding ring. A year ago we bought a Tempra-Pedic bed, it helped some at first but my pain had gotten to the point where lying in bed was actually more painful due to the extreme numbness and tingling going on in my neck, arms and hands. I knew it wasn't the bed but my body.
The lack of restful sleep was wearing on me. I was tired all the time and could not find much comfort. I knew I needed to do something. My daughter was going to be getting married in a couple of month. I needed HELP! My family doctor wanted to send me to a doctor and have surgery for Carpal Tunnel, but I knew that wasn't my problem.
Some people that I work with come to Volz Family Chiropractic. I never asked how they liked it here but I could just see the difference Volz was making. I would hear them making an appointment over the phone or they would be leaving the office to go to their appointment at Volz. I could see the difference after their appointment. I saw it in their face, body & spirit just how much better they looked.
Volz Family Chiropractic allowed me to fully enjoy my daughter's wedding day. The pain, tension, tiredness and stressfulness of my pain were not the only thing I was thinking of on that special day. Thank you Volz!
It's all in the name of "family" in their name; the staff is always welcoming and takes the time to listen. I hope to make Chiropractic care a part of my life long living of wellness in personal health.

I found out about your office by driving by all the time. I was pregnant at the time and something just didn't feel right and I couldn't breathe, I called for an appointment. They worked me in after hours and adjusted me that same day! Receiving regular adjustments from then and now has helped my everyday life so much. Not only do I have more energy, but I don't have headaches as frequently and my asthma and allergies are more under control with minimal use of medicine. I love everybody at the office and it's not just a place to come and get adjustments but it's more of coming to see your family.

I first came to Volz Family Chiropractic because I was pushed by a little boy and I fell down on my butt. I told mommy that it hurt to sit so she made an appointment to see Dr. Phaedra. She said that my hips were way off, whatever that means. All I know is it didn't hurt to sit anymore and I could run and play again. I am a very active little boy as my mom says, so I tend to fall a lot. Every time I have a major fall I get to go see my favorite Chiropractors. Plus I get to see them for my regular adjustments too! I love getting adjusted and getting stickers and vitamins too. I'm really glad that my mommy, brother and I come here. It's the best!

I have been coming to see Dr. Rachel and Dr. Kyle since I've been in my mommy's tummy. When I came out and into the world I was not a happy camper. I was very fussy and cried a lot. My mommy brought me to see Dr. Rachel for the first time. When I was just about a month or so old. My mommy noticed right away that I didn't fuss as much and I slept by myself in my crib and mommy didn't have to hold me all the time. I feel so much better after my adjustments. It makes me happy and I can grow up healthy! My mommy brings me for regular adjustments every month! Thanks mommy, Dr. Rachel and Dr. Kyle for making me a happy healthy baby!

Volz Family Chiropractic changed my life.
I was referred by a friend who told me they could help me with my lingering sciatic pain. The pain started when I was pregnant with my second child. I tried Physical Therapy during and after my pregnancy and the effects were not long lasting. I went to see Dr. Herman for my first appointment. She explained the way Chiropractic worked. Subluxations keep our body from functioning at its full potential. It dawned on me how logical this was. A subluxated vertebrae blocks off a nerve and the spot it goes to will not function as it should. I started my treatment August 2008. Shortly after that I had my 2 children come in December 2008. My son had suffered from Asthma for 2 years after having pneumonia. He was on daily inhalers and was sick with colds and ear infections often. My daughter was generally healthy, but did have bouts with Croup on a regular basis. After being under care at Volz, my son was off his daily asthma inhalers after only 2 months. He didn't display any more of the daily asthma symptoms. My daughter was always adjusted the day after a croup attack and would bounce back to healthy in 24 hours. Ryan (Volz Registered Dietician) told me about Sweet Echinacea drops. I started giving those to my kids when they showed signs of a possible cold coming on, plus take them in to be adjusted and the cold would be minor and only last a day or two with only minor discomfort. My son went from being on antibiotics monthly to barely at all. By keeping his body is alignment he was able to fight things on his own without it manifesting.
I became pregnant Fall 2008. I was worried since I had been under care in August of this year that my sciatic nerve issues would return as severe as they did in my previous pregnancy. Dr. Volz understood my concerns and we worked out a weekly adjustment plan. I also had weekly massages. My third pregnancy was like night and day between my second. By stretching, massage therapy and weekly adjustments my pain level for the sciatic nerve was almost non-existent. I wish I had been under care for my first 2 pregnancies. It felt so good, even though I was still taking care of 2 toddlers. When an ultrasound found out that my baby was breech they followed the strict Webster Technique (Both Dr. Volz and Dr. Herman are certified in the Webster Technique) which at my next ultrasound the baby had flipped and stayed head down for the remainder of my pregnancy. I had also had bad round ligament pain with my last two pregnancies. Dr. Volz was able to prevent all round ligament pain by applying pressure to the ligaments. It was amazing how good I felt.
My husband is also under care. He has a highly stressful job, one cause of subluxations. He gets adjusted every few weeks to keep his body in good condition.
It's been over 3 years and I wish we would have found Chiropractic care sooner in my life. You don't have to suffer. You can be healthy and pain free with Chiropractic care. I am a walking commercial for Chiropractic and Volz Family Chiropractic. They have changed my family's lives. I have never met people that care so deeply about your well being. The receptionists, massage therapists and doctors. Everyone is happy to answer any questions. I usually have a lot of questions about what subluxation causes what. It's so much easier to understand the reason you get sick and express health when you know the real source of the problem. My kids have missed hardly any school since they started. Which I attribute to regular adjustments. Children especially are so resilient. Society and MD's just don't let them show you that when you are constantly shoving their bodies full of antibiotics, etc... When you can put things back the way they are suppose to be in your body, you can do what your body was made to do, heal itself naturally."

"For ten years, I have periodically with a very stiff neck that turns into an unbearable headache that lasts for days. During that time, I tired everything to relieve this pain, including a plethora of different pillows or not pillow at all. None of these helped. On my birthday, January24th, 2012, my wife gave me a Chiroflow pillow. Since that time, sleeping on this pillow, I have been 100% free of the pain that I experience for a decade of my life."

"I was looking to find a Chiropractor when I came across the number in the phone book. The way your staff answered made me decide to come in and try it out.
Subluxations affected my energy. I wanted to be able to get out of bed and feel refreshed, but I just wanted to jump back into it! I had headaches all the time and couldn't get rid of them. I also had problems sleeping. Now that I have had steady Chiropractic care for a while, I've noticed that I no longer have headaches. I literally haven't had a headache come back since having regular Chiropractic adjustments. My energy is amazing. It's so nice to have a full day to do all the things I used to do in a few hours. It's nice to be able to jump out of bed refreshed. It's also wonderful to finally get better sleep. I can tell when I am in need of an adjustment when my sleep isn't right.
I intend to continue my Chiropractic visits to maintain the health and energy its given to me.
Lastly, I'd like to say how appreciative I am of the educational information that I have gotten from the staff. I've learned a lot about vaccinations, subluxations, birthing process and so much more. It's nice to see that you care about giving the knowledge to your patients.
Thank you for making my experience fabulous thus far."

"When I first found out about Chiropractic care I thought this program won't help me. When my neck hurt there was nothing that I could do. Since my family was under care I soon became under care as well. I've learned that Chiropractic care helps with alignment. When out of alignment you may have headaches, stomach aches, colds and body aches.
After being under care for over 6 weeks my body feels better. I am not aching every move I make or feeling sore. I plan on staying with Volz Chiropractic care for a long time to come. I will do this because being in alignment is important to my health, my future and me."

"I tentatively came to Volz Family Chiropractic seeking help with a progressively worsening pain in my right leg. I had a lifelong fear of chiropractors that was quickly erased. Just meeting Dr. Kylene and Dr. Rachel and seeing their gentle demeanor and hearing them speak of their goals of seeing their patients live a healthy life gave me the confidence to visit their office.
Over the four months that followed, the pain in my leg was 95% resolved. And as long as I take my daily Melaleuca vitamins and exercise along with the now bi-weekly adjustments, I remain pain free. However, I have something more lifechanging to tell you about.
At my first adjustment, I was able to take a deep breath for the first time in years. I was so short of breath that I had to stop three times to catch my breath while walking up Capitol Hill (which is not very high). When I talked, I had to stop to take a breath before finishing a sentence. My conversations were so tedious because I was constantly being interrupted by the other person thinking that I had completed my sentence, when in fact, I had only paused to take a breath. I really thought that I had some horrible respiratory problem.
After that first adjustment, I could breathe. My lungs actually hurt from getting air to the cells and tissues that had long sat idle. I can walk without stopping every few feet. I can talk and finish my sentences. I can exercise. I can enjoy life again.
Other lifechanging things have happened, as well, which are all due to the care I've received from Dr. Kylene, Dr. Rachel and Ryan. I am totally caffeine free after a lifetime addiction to coffee. I no longer am dependant on antacids to get through the day and night. The stiffness is gone from my toes. And, I am losing weight by following a healthy eating plan, daily vitamins, moderate exercise and drinking lots of water. I feel good!
Thank you for giving me a new healthier life. It's my future and I'm going to be there healthy thanks to Volz Family Chiropractic."

"I live very close to Volz Family Chiropractic, so I found out about their office as they were getting ready to open. I started seeing Dr. Volz in January 2006 because I was experiencing a lot of pain in my shoulders from years of carrying heavy backpacks and books, and then my daughter. Some days my shoulders would hurt so bad that I couldn't raise my arms over my head to get dressed, or bend down to pick up my daughter. After my first few visits to Dr. Volz I noticed I wasn't experiencing any pain in my shoulders. I was thrilled with how much better they felt....I didn't have to worry about whether or not my shoulders would hurt anymore.
I learned the power of REGULAR Chiropractic care when I missed an appointment and couldn't see Dr. Volz for four weeks, I could feel pain in my shoulders. But, Chiropractic care hasn't been just about pain for me. My daughter also started seeing Dr. Volz early in 2006 and has been very healthy since (no ear infections since she started regular care). She gets sick much less than other kids her age who don't see a Chiropractor. And I 'm sure it helps with "growing pains"!
Dr. Volz has also taught me how to treat my body better (I no longer sleep on my stomach!). I have more energy and am a healthier person because of her!!
Thank you for everything!"

" I first heard about Chiropractic care when one of my friends was referred to a Chiropractor for her newborn baby's constipation issue. I kind of chuckled inside but really thought no more about it. After a few weeks, my friend said that the Chiropractic care her daughter received helped tremendously. I suffered from migraine headaches for twenty years. After seeing countless Doctors and taking dozens of different prescriptions, I was desperate for relief. My headaches were debilitating and took over much of my life. One of my family members suggested I go see her Chiropractor. I made my first appointment with Dr. Volz and within four adjustments my headaches were reduced dramatically. After eight visits my headaches were a thing of the past. I am a much happier person today because I know that today, tomorrow, and next week I will be headache free!
I love Chiropractic care, especialy with Dr. Volz. Dr. Volz and her staff make every visit fun. They truly are a "family" Chiropractic office. Thank you for improving the quality of my life. My wife and children appreciate it!"

"My mom was reading the Holt Community News and saw the article on the Grand Opening of Volz Family Chiropractic. She knew I had been having some ongoing back pain, and since we already knew Kyle, sorry "Dr. Volz", and the staff, she called that same day or at least the very next day. She found out our insurance was accepted and so here I am.
My back problems had been affecting my life for at least 3 years prior to my first appointment. My subluxations caused me to quit massage therapy school and start on a different career path. It also disabled me from working out and exercising like I had for years and had enjoyed doing.
My life has changed so much for the better since beginning my Chiropractic care. Since coming to your office for care I have been able to do whatever I want to without fearing it would cause me pain. I had previously seen a D.O. for manipulations and was nowhere pleased like I have been with the adjustments Dr. Volz has given me. Since starting Chiropractic care at Volz Family Chiropractic I had no second thoughts about taking on my new job. Since I work in a hospital and am on my feet for 12 hour periods, I owe that all to Dr. Volz! Without the care I have received from her, I know I would never be able to take on this job and get such a great opportunity if it weren't for her. The comfort I have with my back now is priceless. Being able to do anything and everything I want without pain is the best gift ever!
To say the least I love Dr. Volz and all she has done for me, my back, and my overall health.
Without a doubt I plan to continue on with my wellness plan until the day you close your doors!
I don't know where I'd be today without the care I have received. I finally feel like I have a 22 year old's body and not a 122 year old's! It's a great feeling to wake up everyday pain free! THANK YOU!
