Daily Headaches for 30 Years

“I came to see Dr. Schultz for chronic lower back pain. I never thought to mention to him about the headaches I’ve had every day since childhood!!

But during the examination he also checked an area of my neck and he told me, ‘you have headaches, don’t you?’ I always thought headaches were ‘normal’ due to stress. Dr. Schultz explained that a small bone at the top of my neck was severely rotated causing pressure on a nerve and an artery to my head. Dr. Schultz said that stress aggravates headaches, but is not the cause.

After two months of care, I don’t have headaches or back pain anymore!! I had been taking 2-3 Extra Strength Tylenol tablets per day for most of my life before coming to Dr. Schultz and receiving his gentle care.

My husband had been trying to get me to go for years. I can’t believe I waited so long!”

Migraine Headaches & Chiropractic

“I suffered from migraine headaches which occurred once a week on average. These were debilitating because I had ‘auras’ for 30 minutes (loss of vision in one eye) and would have to be in bed for 3 to 4 hours with a headache. I also couldn’t turn my head to the right very much and had a sore neck to the point of not being able to sleep. I tried three different medications from my regular doctor and when those didn’t help I saw a neurologist and tried two different medications. One helped but the side effects were awful (short term memory loss and hair loss).

After receiving chiropractic care with Dr. Schultz, I can turn my head easily and have no pain. I haven’t had a regular headache or a migraine headache since treatments began. It’s changed my life because I no longer have to be worried that I’ll get a migraine and have to get help to watch my children.

I most like Dr. Schultz’s education information on how the spine works in connection with the rest of the body and the diagnostic equipment used to test progress and analyze the problem. Dr. Schultz’s approach is very professional.

Besides the migraine headaches, my regular daily headaches have gone away, as well as the pain in my temples.

After see a previous chiropractor, medical doctors, neurologist and undergoing tests and biofeedback, I finally got the cause of my problem fixed! I would argue anyone suffering from migraines or headaches to see Dr. Schultz, as he has the training and the skills to correct the root cause of the problem. If you’re not happy with another chiropractor, try Dr. Schultz in Johnston, Iowa! The results of my treatments have shown his analysis of my situation to be spot on!”

Sick and Tired of Being Sick and Tired

“When I first visited with the doctor at Schultz Chiropractic & Acupuncture, I had been trying to live with the pain in my back for close to two years. It had gotten so bad that I could hardly get out of the house. The pain that I experienced reduced my resistance to a level so low that I caught whatever virus was going around. I was constantly sick and tired.

My grip strength was so poor in my left hand that I was constantly dropping keys. Hy hand would tremble with the effort of holding just a fork.

With the care of Dr. Schultz and Shelly, my back has improved to a point where there are some days where it doesn’t hurt at all. Now that the nerves in my neck and back have had a chance to heal, I am rarely sick anymore!

The visits to my chiropractor keep my problems from getting worse while lifting and caring for my small children. I love this place!”

Arm & Hand Numbness | Pain

“Previous to having chiropractic care, I was having a loss of feeling, along with severe numbness, in my arms and extending into my hands.

After chiropractic treatments with Dr. Schultz, the pain as well as the numbness and tingling are completely gone. The pain was about seven on a scale of ten, being worse in the morning.

Dr. Schultz has added a very personal touch to the treatments. He is more willing to take extra time with me when it is needed. Also, he follows up after the treatments to verify that they are successful. I am very happy with my chiropractic care, and will be continuing my treatments to maintain my good health.”

Severe Migraine Headaches | Blurred Vision

“I had severe migraine headaches for five years and had tried everything possible prior to seeing Dr. Schultz. I had brain scans and brain wave tests and had spent thousands of dollars in medical care.

Then, after seeing his office and sign, I decided to see Dr. Alan Schultz in Johnston.

He did a very thorough workup! He began to focus on my upper neck and found a severely rotated upper cervical.
This was effecting nerves to the arteries, cause constriction. After 3-4 weeks of his specific treatment, I can now do about anything that I want. I’m not afraid to go somewhere with the fear of having a severe headache in public.

I like the way Dr. Schultz explained every step to me along the way and that he would advise me on how to keep feeling good. I am going about one month between treatments for headache prevention and to keep my alignment. I don’t ever want a relapse! It’s changed my life.

I now have no more blurred vision. I also have more strength. My sleep is much better also. Overall, I feel better than I have in a long time.

My family has noticed the results with my better health. Plus the people I work with have noticed that I have more energy.”

-Mike H.


“Before I began treatments with Dr. Schultz, I had headaches almost every day. My neck was very sore and I could not turn my head either direction very far. I also experienced having cold hands and some numbness in my fingers.

Now, after treatments with Dr. Schultz, I can turn my head freely, with no pain. The headaches are gone! And I seem to have more feeling in my fingers.

Chiropractic helped me 100%. I appreciate Dr. Schultz’s honest approach on how he could help me. He seemed concerned about my improvement.

I am very glad that I came to Dr. Schultz and am pleased with my improvements!”

-Steve H.

Neck | Head | Eye Pain

“I began having severe pains in the right side of my neck and head about 3 years ago. I also began having sharp pain in my right eyeball. One day I suddenly began seeing spots in the vision of that eye. The pain and pressure was nearly unbearable. I also began to suffer dryness in that eye. These conditions continued for more than a year and a half and were so serious that I was taking two Tylenol three times per day.

This certainly did become frightening, so I scheduled appointments with an optometrist and opthamologist. After their exams, there were still no answers for the pain and pressure in my eye.

I am very familiar with chiropractic care and felt this was my only hope. After only a few treatments I was feeling much better. With just one special adjustment to my upper spine, I was completely relieved of the pain in my eye and my vision was clearer. I have had no pain in that eye since. I’m looking forward to more progress and better health in the days to come. Thank you to Dr. Alan Schultz for your concern and care!”

Extreme Low Back & Leg Pain

“My pain was extreme in the lower back and down both legs after slipping and falling on ice in February. Because of this injury I was off work for six weeks.

Two neurosurgeons said that the only treatment that would help my ruptured discs would be surgical. I searched online for a chiropractor with experience in herniated and ruptured lumbar discs. That doctor was Dr. Alan Schultz in Johnston.

Dr. Schultz is a very caring doctor. He has often called me at home to see how I was doing. He also met me at the office after hours anytime that I needed pain relief.

I would recommend Dr. Schultz’s chiropractic method’s and approach to herniated discs and sciatic nerve pain. My pain was severe. I first walked into his office bent over and to the side at a 30 degree angle and couldn’t straighten my legs. He has helped me beyond belief. I am now able to lead an almost normal life again!”

-Robert H.

Extreme Headaches

“Before contacting Dr. Schultz, I had extreme headaches. I had these headaches for eight years. Medical doctors kept saying that there wasn’t anything wrong with me, but at the same time, they would prescribe heavy pain killers. I had gotten to the point where everyday tasks were too difficult to accomplish because of these headaches.

I heard that Dr. Schultz could help people with headaches. When I first came to see Dr. Schultz, I knew something had to be wrong for years. He found a pinched nerve in my neck, and my mid-back was out of alignment and my hips were not level.

I am almost through with the major part of my chiropractic treatments. I do not have headaches any longer, I have more energy than I have had in years, and I feel great!

I had suffered too many years without knowing I could be helped with chiropractic until now. Dr. Schultz has been very supportive through my visits.

If someone is in pain, there is no reason that you can’t be helped in my opinion. Dr. Schultz’s methods of chiropractic care made me a healthy person again. The equipment and technology used, alongside Dr. Schultz experience has made my life happy again. I can only say good things about this office, because it changed my life. It can change yours too.”

-Kris B.

Car Accident

“Shortly after I was hit from behind in a car accident, I couldn’t turn my neck or lift my right arm. After several visits to the chiropractor in Johnston, Dr. Schultz, I was able to comb my hair without pain in my arm and I could again turn my head. Thanks Dr. Schultz!”
