I was in a head on collision almost 13 years ago. My seat belt saved me but also damaged my back and neck. I have spent years in pain and have “thrown out my back” on a regular basis since then.

I have gone to back specialists, physical therapists, other chiropractors, you name it I’ve tried it! Most people suggest pain relievers, muscle relaxers and leaving my career as a stylist since I’m on my feet all day. Totally not the answer I was looking for!!! I started to throw my back out more frequently and and it was taking longer to heal.

My massage therapist  recommended Dr. Bill! She couldn’t say enough great things about him. I was feeling pretty defeated from my injuries by the time but I finally made an appointment. It was the best decision I have ever made!!! Not only has he been able to get rid of my pain 100% but he has also been working to correct my old injuries.

I am able to work out, work all day, and do my daily life with out pain and pressure or fear that my back is going to slip out!!! I felt an improvement the first week he worked with me and I have felt stronger ever since!!! I wish I met him sooner!!!! I have recommended a few friends that he has really helped as well!!!

He takes his time and really cares about your well being!!!  He has completely change my life in a positive way!!! Thank you Dr. Bill for everything you have done for me!!!

I was suffering from Spinal Spondylolisthesis… My experience with Cherry Street Chiropractic has been phenomenal. I had been experiencing lower back pain for several months. After a while, I realized it wasn’t something that was just going to go away. So I, like most people, did my research before going here. I read the reviews from previous patients of Dr. Nolan and the feedback seemed very positive.

I first sat down with Dr. Nolan and before performing any re-alignments and we discussed in details the ailments I had. From there, he was able to analyze my posture, check my hip/spinal alignments and take X-Rays. Throughout the whole process, Dr. Nolan was receptive to my concerns and was able to clearly and thoroughly explain how alignment issues can have an effect on the body. On my second appointment we sat down to analyze the X-Rays and discuss in more detail the issues I was facing. To be frank, I could not have gone to Dr. Nolan at a better time. I was informed that I was suffering from Spinal Spondylolisthesis and if I didn’t get it treated it would have only gotten worse. The diagnosis was clearly described to be, what it means, how it happens, how it affects my daily life, and courses of action for correction. From then, I have been working closely with Dr. Nolan weekly to correct my spinal alignment. Not only has he worked with me in person, I was provided with a detailed list of stretches/exercises I can work on at home to maximize the effects of the realignments.

On top of the positive nature, since I have started regularly going to Cherry Street Chiropractic I have seen a drastic improvement in my health. The back pains have been reduced if not extinguished, I am sleeping better, and I just feel like my overall health has improved.

Before Care: Back pain for months

After 3 Adjustments: The back pains have been reduced if not extinguished, I am sleeping better, and I just feel like my overall health has improved.

After suffering for months with back pain that woke me up every night, I finally decided to take action and called Cherry Street Chiropractic. I had visited one chiropractor before without much success, so needless to say, I was a bit skeptical. Upon walking into the beautiful office, Margaret greeted me with a genuine smile, instantly making me feel comfortable.

I met with Dr. Bill who carefully listened to my entire medical situation, asking follow up questions and truly getting to the root of the problem. After the evaluation and some x-rays, he confirmed his hunch that I had displaced ribs and also discovered underlying posture and spinal issues.

When I walked into Cherry Street, I was beyond frustrated. I was sleep-deprived, in almost constant pain (or at least discomfort), and simply worn down. Dr. Bill told me that he was putting together a whole plan to not only fix my current issues, but prevent it from coming back and halt the progress of damage that was being done. After two or three adjustments, I went from sleeping for 3-4 hours at a time to 7, and have already noticed an improvement in my posture.

I cannot recommend Cherry Street enough. Margaret and Ashley are lovely; friendly, concerned and understanding. Dr. Bill approaches each appointment with humor and honesty, and he is incredibly thorough and thoughtful. I credit everyone at Cherry Street with finally getting me to feel like myself again.

Before Care: Back pain and 3-4 hours of sleep at a time.

After 3 Adjustments: Improved posture, less pain and sleeping 7 hours.

Your posture is a window into your spine. The spine has a direct connection with your brain, spinal cord, and overall organ function. This relationship means that poor posture and spinal health will lead to an overall decrease in brain and organ function. Bad posture is a modern day health epidemic that is much worse than most people realize.

Dr. Roger Sperry, a Nobel Prize recipient, reports that the spine is the motor that drives the brain. According to his research, “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine.” Only 10% of our brain’s energy goes into thinking, metabolism, immunity, and healing. Sperry demonstrated that 90% of brain energy goes into processing and maintaining the body’s relationship with gravity (your posture).

Leaning or hunching forward, as demonstrated in the picture, can affect your lung capacity by as much as 30 percent. This decreased lung capacity does not allow your tissues or heart to receive oxygenated blood, which can lead to shortness of breath and heart and vascular disease.

Since many of us spend many hours per week on the computer it is important to use a proper ergonomic set-up. Email me a picture of your computer set-up I will make recommendations and send it back to you. My email address is drbill@cherrychiro.com. Have someone take a picture of you at your desk from the side and if possible the front and or back. Better posture leads to better health!
