A complete cure for me without surgery!

“My lower back had been bothering me for three long years. After having tried everything, including two spinal injections, I was on the verge of surgery. I consulted Dr. Alan Schultz before ultimately making the decision to have surgery, and I am glad I did!”

In my occupation (city streets department), a bad back is the worst thing that can happen. Through the treatment program I received from Dr. Schultz and the excellent treatment of his staff, I can now do my job and enjoy recreation with my family without pain. A complete cure for me without surgery!

I would recommend Dr. Schultz to anyone with back problems.”

Professional and Knowledgeable

Dr Schultz is very professional, knowledgeable and went out of his way to get me in on very short notice. He even called me that evening to check on me and decided to make time for me again the next day as I was struggling. Highly recommend Dr Schultz.

Chronic Neck & Back Pain

“I suffered from neck and back pain for approximately 20 years. It began on and off again for a few years and then it progressively became a daily problem that often kept me home from work. After my treatments began with Dr. Schultz, I noticed the difference within just a week or two. I had tried all other options and medications and now with Dr. Schultz’s help, I am no longer taking any medication.

I can work a normal day, every day, and plan my social life knowing that I will be able to attend. In the past, I also suffered from migraines, and those have be greatly reduced as well. The pain can take control of your life. This type of treatment can put you back in control and get you leading a normal life again. I strongly recommend Dr. Schultz in Johnston.”

30 Years Of Migraines Erased With Two Visits:

“I have suffered from severe migraine headaches for the past 30 years, and have relied on prescription medication to give me relief so I could get through each day. I was always afraid to try chiropractic treatment ….I was already in pain, so wasn’t excited about the idea of “cracking” something and making it worse! I finally decided to give it a try, as I was sick and tired of feeling sick and tired! Dr. Schultz did a great job of explaining what was needed, and what he could do to help. His open answers to my questions gave me the courage to go ahead and try treatment. After only two adjustments, my headaches completely disappeared!! As treatments continued,overall aches and pains decreased and flexibility increased. After years of not feeling well, I have recently taken up running and biking again, and feel fantastic! My only regret is that I didn’t take care of this a LONG time ago. I am very appreciative of Dr. Schultz for giving me a new lease on life!”


Climbing Three Amazing Summits without Pain!

While visiting Johnston from Brazil for work at Pioneer, M.M. explains: “I have two herniated discs (L4-L5; L5-S1), the last one was causing immense pain just 2 weeks before a Yosemite climbing trip. With just four sessions with Dr. Schultz I was completely recovered, and of course kept my plains for the trip. In summary, three amazing summits, climbing long routes (+ 1000 ft), Half Dome, Fair View Dome and Middle Cathedral Rock. I really do recommend Dr. Schultz treatment!!!! Thank you !!” M.M.

D-Day for Pain. WW2 & 82nd Airborne Veteran Drops In to Talk About Schultz Chiropractic at the Age of 92

When it comes to serving veterans, it has been our pleasure working with W.B., a long time Johnston resident. W.B. served in WW2 with the 82nd Airborne, also famously known as “All American.” Among his major drops were Sicily, Salerno, Normandy, and Holland/Market Garden. His drop in Normandy behind enemy lines was the night of June 5, 1944. Later in the war, word of his mothers death did not reach him at the front lines for nearly a month. His missions were so secretive that his units whereabouts was known but to a few. The 82nd Airborne was in almost constant action from 1943 to the end of the war in 1945. W.B. also received glider training/wings, and admits that he volunteered for anything that came along. He saw heavy action in the war. He would never mention it, but his ribbons indicate he is a Purple Heart and Silver Star recipient. At 92 years of age, W.B. is still very active with yard work and garage activities at his Johnston home of 55 years. Chiropractic has definitely kept him moving. “Dr. Schultz has really helped me. Look, I’m in great shape,” he boasts to his wife! And he is right. How many people live in their own home and care for themselves in their 90’s? Monthly adjustments to his mid-back, low back and hips have allowed more motion/movement and reduced pain from osteoarthritic joints. When it comes to fighting pain and knowing who to trust, W.B. says, “I recommend Schultz Chiropractic Wellness Zone.” Thanks W.B. You are a real American Hero!

Drake’s BB Player

“The adjustments that I received throughout my playing career kept my back healthy and allowed me to perform at 100% on the court. Dr. Schultz and his staff are very personable and they make sure every patient receives great care.” — Drake’s BB Player See more about Drakes Men’s Basketball Player by clicking here.

Tennis Player at Drake University

“I am a division I tennis player at Drake University. After intensive treatments, the athletic trainers at Drake referred me to Dr. Schultz to assist me with my back problems. I walked into Dr. Schultz’s office with a strained back, troubled disc, and just general back pains. It was difficult for me to sleep, sit for long periods of time, and even get dressed. Dr. Schultz and Shelly sacrificed their mornings, nights, and weekends to get me the most intensive care they could provide me with as they understood and wanted me to get back on the tennis court as quickly as possible. After only two weeks, I was able to go back to playing, and with regular check-ups and a recommended recovery program (mostly consists of easy exercises) I am now pain-free. I owe my senior-year season to Shelly and Dr. Schultz!!”
