I rate Dr. Sullivan a 10+!

Robert H.While working under my car I had craned my neck to look at possible problem. I crawled out and upon standing, I endured extreme ongoing vertigo. I knew I had harmed my upper back because of my back problems most of my life. I didn’t have a Chiropractor since moving here 3 yrs ago. And living on SS, I had limited funds to find a good doctor. While searching on the internet, I found Dr. Sullivan and thank God I did.

We were in contact immediately. I made an appointment the same day and after our appointment driving home realized my vertigo was already improving. I had 3 more appointments a day apart last week and 2 this week and could not be more pleased with her service and abilities. Her rates are very reasonable and she processed my confusing insurance forms for me. I have been treated by numerous Chiropractor’s over last 50+ yrs, some very good and some horrible. I rate Dr. Sullivan a 10+! She knows what she is doing and does it well. I will be her patient going forward.

Almost Pain Free

Charles E.I was experiencing sharp, stabbing pain in the rear buttock area when walking. I toke aspirin to alleviate the pain and reduce any inflammation. That had minimal effect. I had been to other doctors and none could help me.

Dr. Sullivan determined that due to my scoliosis, my sacroiliac joint was misaligned and she has corrected that with a series of adjustments. I still have some discomfort but the serious pain had been eliminated and I anticipate that after several more treatments I should be pain free. I like to walk and hadn’t been able to because of the pain. I am walking again! I am also sleeping better. Dr. Sullivan diagnosed my problem right away and her treatments are both educational and efficient.

Sorry I Waited So Long

Kathie F.Hi There. My name is Kathie and I have been under the care of Dr. Lynn Sullivan of late. I have to say I am sorry I waited so long in seeking treatment from her.

I am a person who loves being outdoors in the fresh air. I ride horses which are a main passion, as well as being part of a Worship Team at My Church locally.

A year ago this past December my husband and I were rear-ended at a stop light. It wasn’t too bad, however I did feel sort of a “lightning bolt” type of feeling up the small of my back. However I didn’t feel too bad and so I went about my business.

After a while though, I began feeling sore in places along my spine which seemed to eventually move lower in my back area. It became so uncomfortable I stopped exercising and even walking our neighborhood loop. I love to ride my horses to but I became sort if discouraged as it hurt to ride now for some reads on. I also realized my back and hips felt more and more locked up. I actually began to feel crooked. One leg longer than the other? That’s not right. Hmmm. I don’t care for Drs personally although I respect that for some people they have their place. For me however, I avoid then then like the plague! I continued to ignore my plight.

Anyway, a funny thing occurred that changed my thinking a bit. My horse Cira. I realized I had this past year, had to have an equine massage/chiro specialist perform bodywork on her more often than I would have normally. She is an athlete and previous Tevis horse and I always made sure her body was comfortable and working correctly. Me??? Ahaha. Not so much apparently! It dawned on me that I was so much out of whack myself that it was affecting her too!!! Darn! Well I love my horse Cira as well as couple others I have and I would never want them uncomfortable. I felt horrible. I could feel her body trying to balance and carry me; a now very crooked, stiff, hip/backed human. Not fair to her. Hence, why I decided to finally seek help.

I don’t like pills nor taking meds. So after seeking information about Chiropractic care I discovered Dr. Lynne Sullivan. I would see her riding in our neighborhood occasionally and observed how happily active she herself was. I’m an observer type and I wanted to be active, comfortable, and happy again!!! Lol

I finally met and spoke with her and arrangements to see if she could help me. At first I was VERY nervous to have someone work on my back or spine. Apparently I was a bit if a mess. Not only my back area, but also my neck. I had noticed over the years a bone sort of starting to feel more prominent. I had forgotten about that being used to it until she also noticed it. I had also been experiencing some pretty bad headaches. This apparently was related. My neck too was out.

She answered my questions. Therefore I no longer had any concerns or fears. It was Hands On time. Lol. She is knowledgeable in her field. I was convinced.

After the first treatment I went out and walked then entire 3 mile loop smiling as I walked! Hey I feel pretty good!! I then proceeded to unload several bales of hay. I felt great!

The next day? Well not so much! Oopsie! Boy did I overdo things! I went back for couple more sessions. I would feel better but because I’m a busy person and no one does my chores for me, I, at first, unwittingly short circuited my own healing process in not allowing myself to slow down after sessions. So DO NOT do what I did!!

After one more session I was actually comfortable for very short time and then suddenly in a lot of pain. From back of my hip, around, behind my knee and eventually to my big toe on my left side. Sleeping was nearly impossible. A few Aleves didn’t even help so I stopped that. It was so bad I would also drag my left leg and my big toe/foot was now numb. Being stubborn, I continued to try to walk. One day walking down a trail I tripped due to loss of feeling in that foot. Dummy!! So now, my ankle is twisted! Will I ever learn to stop?? Slow down and allow healing? LOL. This lasted for about 3 weeks actually.

Well I caved and decided I HAD to take a day or two off on a weekend to rest. Finally. Dr. Sullivan had warned me to take it easy. She also informed me that I would feel worse first, and then start better. I admit I did not completely believe that at the time.
To continue my saga, the weekend I rested I ended up having been scheduled to sing on the team at Church. That required standing for about 20-25 minutes and another 15 more at the closing of services. Ugh… Hard!! The pain from standing was so bad I actually felt rubbery and weak. I made it to the end. Tawanda!! (A saying I use when I overcome something lol).

Once home, I hit the couch. I gave thought to having doubts about returning for the remaining sessions.

I then remembered her informing me upfront that even if I felt better after couple sessions, for complete healing I should be committed for a time period to heal correctly. Seriously? Ya think??!! Lol

So back I went. Admittedly with some doubts at first. Well good things happened and she was right! After several more sessions, couple per week, the pain completely disappeared! I was now walking much more normally. I was ready to try riding again! Yay! Halleluiah!!
I started walking first adjusting distance as I could do each time. Later I could not only ride again without pain but I could trot, canter, and gallop my horses again! Life is great! :))))

I no longer feel my pelvis crooked, back good and hip, knee pain ALL gone. No more numbness in my left foot at all. Totally disappeared. Gone. Later I walked 5 miles at a local park on foot while walking my other mare up and down some rolling hills and single track. I not only feel good in the saddle again, I am also taking note that my horses bodies feel better carrying me! Now that is a plus…

The only issue I have left is when I do walk my left hamstring is not as flexible as it should be. This however, is totally unrelated to any Chiro issue I had. Months earlier I had pulled both my hamstrings badly while squatting trying to move some very heavy stall mats during some rainy weather in wet, sticky adobe dirt. My right is healed. My left will take just a bit longer but will heal also on its own. Staying well-adjusted I’m sure will assist that I’m positive.

I am currently looking forward to working out again. In the last weeks I have enjoyed several painless horseback rides on my beloved mares. It would have devastated me not be able to ride.

Other benefits I noticed after Dr.Sullivan’s sessions are my hearing and some minor bodily functions seem more normal. I had some minor issues I had previously attributed to “getting older” lol. That being said those minor issues have also improved!

In closing my little “book” here, lol, I would highly recommend Dr Sullivan. I would also recommend X-rays prior to commencement of treatment to assist Dr. Sullivan to pinpoint areas of attention needed and therefore prescribe a proper plan for successful healing.
I highly recommend not delaying seeking help as I did. I am so glad and thankful for her skill and service.

Many thanks Dr. “Sully!”
Cheers and happy riding,
Oh…P.S. I am sending my husband next! :)

Help for Back Pain

Tanya and Michael H.Both my husband and I decided to go with chiropractic care for ongoing back pain. My husband was skeptical, but once he saw what progress I was making, he decided to give it a try. He was very impressed with his results. Dr. Sullivan helped us with our fears. She started out slow and walked us through what to expect. We both have made significant progress and noticed less pain and more flexibility. Now both can do many activities we could not do before. Having less pain gives us more energy. We both feel better overall and notice a significant improvement in our overall health.

My husband saw our general practitioner in the past and all they did was offer prescription pain medication that was only a temporary fix. He was in so much pain that I couldn’t even touch his back. Chiropractic care is definitely worth the time and money. It is not an overnight remedy, but it will definitely make a positive impact in your health.

Pat S.Looking Forward to a Brighter Future

I sought chiropractic care for a pulled muscle feeling in my right rib cage that had been going on for 2 ½ years. The injury was so severe I didn’t think I had a chance to heal. I felt I was at a point of no return, and even thought I might have cracked ribs. I had tried exercise, rest and healthy living and the pain would not go away. Dr. Sullivan was very comforting and since the initial round of 5 to 8 treatments I’ve noticed a world of improvement.

I can now hit golf shots without stabbing pain and I’m a lot happier with a brighter future for my golf career. Dr. Sullivan is quick, thorough and has a great attitude.

Kathy C.Overall Improved Health

I sought chiropractic car after a car accident. I did have some doubts and fears before starting chiropractic care and Dr. Sullivan was a great help in getting over those. Before beginning care, I had tried massage, yoga, and slowing down, but still had lots of pain. In a short period of time I’m feeling great, almost pain free, more mobility and less fear. I can turn my head and move fluidly and my overall health has improved. Dr. Lynne is an expert and will alleviate your concerns, fears and you’ll feel better overall!
