Neck & Upper Back Injury While Hunting:

“My problem began when I was deer hunting one weekend. I was climbing down a tree and fell out of the tree backwards, landing on my back. I had fallen about eight feet.

Later that night my neck, shoulders, and middle back started to stiffen up and become painful. It was very hard to get out of bed the next morning, and I could barely turn my head. The problem became worse with time.

Someone at work told me they had good results with Schultz Chiropractic in Johnston. I decided to give it a try and scheduled an appointment for examination.

Dr. Schultz found a rotated upper thoracic vertebrae that was was pinching a nerve. He also found a vertebrae in my lower neck had been forced out of its normal position and was affecting a nerve into my arm.

Since I like to run and I am trying to stay in good shape, I decided to choose corrective care once Dr. Schultz had completed my relief care.

My results have been fantastic, and you could actually see my progress on his diagnostic computer. I can turn my neck in all directions now and I am doing great! I would recommend Dr. Schultz to anyone.”

Neck Pain, Upper Back and Lower Back Pain, Hip Pain & Headaches:

“When I first met Dr. Schultz over two years ago, I was even afraid of the word “chiropractor.” I had neck pain, headaches, hip pain, as well as upper and lower back pain. Dr. Schultz told me that he would go slow, explain everything to me, and help me feel better with a few treatments and monthly maintenance care. He was right. However, I failed to do the monthly maintenance visits.

Like most people, when you feel good you don’t think you need a doctor anymore. So I eventually started to go down hill. My hip pain returned and became so bad that I decided to see a medical doctor. He proceeded to inject me with cortisone shots and told me to come back if the pain persisted. By now my headaches were returning, as well as my upper and lower back pain. That is when I realized that I had to come back to Dr. Schultz!

Although I am not completely healed, I feel that it will be real soon. Dr. Schultz’s patience and care has meant so much to me. I believe that the day that my husband and I met him it was truly a blessing. For if we hadn’t met Dr. Schultz I would be still living in pain. Even though we live two hours away from Dr. Schultz, we would not even consider going to another doctor. Thank you so much!”

Spinal Pain and Paralyzing Pain

Due to years of abuse and neglect, I was suffering from pain throughout my spinal region. It was so sensitive that the slightest touch or change in weather would leave me almost paralyzed in pain. I had also gotten use to the constant throbbing pain from just standing.

After eight weeks of treatment it has been like night and day. I am proud to announce that I am able to put on my socks and shoes all by myself. I know this seems like an infantile thing, but to a man that hasn’t been able to do this for a long time, its a big deal!

I thoroughly enjoy every treatment that I have with Dr. Schultz. He has a way with his patients that is professional, yet personal. Being a large man, some things are impossible. However, Dr. Schultz found a way to best utilize my size to get the results he wants.

Dr. Schultz has opened my eyes to many things. As far as I’m concerned, I now consider Dr. Schultz not only my chiropractic physician but also a friend.

Trouble Driving, Working & Standing

I had trouble sleeping, standing up straight, working and driving. Mine was a difficult and chronic condition after years of overworking in a factory.

Now I am discomfort free. Fatigue, stress, and discomfort from leaning forward, bending and standing eight hours per day is pretty much under control– so I haven’t missed any work.

I found Dr. Alan Schultz and staff to be instrumental in my improvement by evaluating, advising and chiropractic adjustment treatments that were designed accordingly to my very difficult case. No other providers could solve this and I had been taking tons of medications prior to seeing Dr. Schultz. Very satisfied!

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.”
