Testimonials for Better Life Family Chiropractic

Genuine Help

“I am thoroughly impressed with Dr. Johnson and the care my sweet four month old has received. My son wasn’t achieving the appropriate milestones and I was worried; my main concern was he wasn’t able to hold his head up on his own. After getting adjusted a few times, in just a week and a half he is now already holding his head up like a champ! From the minute Dr. Johnson met my son it was clear he genuinely cared for his health and wellness.”

31 Weeks pregnant and Comfortable!

jessica“I came in when I was 31 weeks pregnant. I had lost a lot of movement in my left leg and experiencing extreme pain in my pelvis, to the point I was having trouble dressing myself, getting in and out of bed and the car. And after investigating some options, I decided to use Dr. Johnson and within three weeks I’ve gained my movement back in my left leg and my pain has almost entirely disappeared. It went away a little more every day. I’m feeling way more comfortable and mobile!”

Screaming baby and non-stop child

“I want to share my very big thank you to Dr. Johnson, as well as the wonderful Carlie and Lauren.  They have helped our family out SO much! Our daughter, Kiyomi, spent 2 months just screaming…constantly. She wasn’t pooping, and when she would (about once every couple of weeks) it caused her so much pain. Her doctor’s office just kept telling us it was just her personality, nothing was wrong with her, and told me to just let her scream. Lauren suggested we bring her in to see Dr. Johnson, and within a month she was like a completely different baby! Now at 6 months old she is the happiest little girl ever.  She rarely cries, and poops regularly with no pain. Just the lack of screaming helped our family out so much, but then we were helped out even more…

Our 3 year old, Yoshi, never stops.  He is go, go, go, and rarely sleeps. He’ll stay up all night and the entire next day, and still only sleep 4-5 hours before starting all over again. And when he is awake, he is constantly running, yelling, obnoxious. He does not have an inside voice, no volume control at all. He got his very first adjustment, and not even 10 minutes after getting in the car, he was OUT! Our non-stop child, was fast asleep. He continues to sleep well and is also using spoken words he struggled with before.  I can’t thank Better Life enough for everything, I can’t wait until I can afford to get our other sons in as well.  I am so excited to see how chiropractic care can help with their issues! Again, thank you, for everything!”

Dr. Chad puts me back together!

victoria“I am the owner of a birth center; we do home births. We are an out of hospital situation so we have a very small team of people, with very few hands in the mix for relief. We find ourselves in positions that we may be in for hours. I’ve had 9 babies born within a few days of each other, 7 of which I was at myself with an assistant and Dr. Chad puts me back together. I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without him!”

Autism Care and Treatment

“Derek started treatment for high functioning autism with Dr. Chad about a year ago. Now when we look back on the development and improvements Derek has made in that time, it seems too good to be true.

Almost immediately after starting treatment, we noticed that Derek wanted to play with other kids on the playground at recess and join sporting teams. Previous to chiropractic treatment Derek was too fearful and insecure to try new things and often played alone. Next we noticed he was making better eye contact and having good two way conversations. Over the past year Derek graduated from his occupational therapy class and his behavior in the classroom has also dramatically improved. In fact, at his IEP meeting in February, the specialists asked what we had been doing differently because maturity alone could not account for his amazing progress from last year to present.

Giving Dr. Chad Johnson a chance is by far the best decision we have ever made in the care and treatment of our son’s autism. We have high hopes for Derek and can’t wait to see how he will continue progress.”

Gave me my Natural Birth!

araya“I came in when I was 35 weeks and my baby was breech. My doctor wanted to schedule a C-section for 39 weeks but I really wanted to have a natural birth without any medication. There was no questioning having a breech birth. Seeing a chiropractor was my only natural option. My baby flipped after the first appointment! I am excited to go on and have my natural birth!”

–Araya S.

Huge Change in Migraines

“I used to have chronic migraines, about 4-6 really bad hospitalizing ones a year and weekly headaches. Since I’ve been in I haven’t had any migraines and only one minor headache in about 6 months. It’s a huge change! [Regarding sports] I am landing my jumps better, my spins are better, my alignment is better. My coach is happy! I’m not taking nearly as many medications as I used to. I used to take Advil, Tylenol, aspirin, every day. I have way more energy! I can play with my kids more! ”

Awesome Doctor helped my Baby!

wrangler “When we first started it was rough. [Wrangler] wouldn’t sleep or eat, he would cry most of the day all day long. We were told about chiropractic from a friend in Tennessee, so we looked around and found Dr. Chad Johnson. It’s the best thing that has happened since this little boy has been born! He sleeps through the night he doesn’t cry unless he’s fussy or hungry, like normal baby should. He’s happier than ever! We are very blessed to have found him! I encourage anybody who has any problem that they think might need medication—Don’t!–come here because it works! He’s an awesome doctor, I recommend him!”

Years Added to my Life

“My back was really tight, I was really hunched over forward and wasn’t able to do a lot of stuff that I like to do. I tried out waterskiing this year [again] and I was struggling and I thought it had to be the ski right? I had a really good session, skiing as well as I was a couple of years ago. The last couple of years I’ve been really struggling with it. My fatigue is going away. It’s given me a couple of years back on my life!”

Significant Improvement in my Son

kendra“Initially I looked into chiropractic for my son because he was having some nighttime incontinence and I heard chiropractic could assist with that. We came in and saw Dr. Chad and the [new patient paperwork] had multiple things on it that I would have never of thought chiropractic could help with! My son has historically had some issues with compulsive behavior, anxiety, and various other issues. Sometimes hurting friends, getting into trouble at school and having just a hard time in general. We have noticed a significant improvement after [using] chiropractic, not only with nighttime bed wetting but a lot with behavioral improvements which has been really great! Being able to go places and do things is a huge improvement! He’s been great!”

-Kendra R.

It’s really great!

“Anytime I would sit down or get up I felt a bruising pain in my tail bone. I was recommended by Spokane midwives and came out for my initial appointment I felt comfortable right away and have felt better every time I come in. Headaches are almost gone as well. My energy level is back up; I don’t feel like I have to nap as much during the day. I sleep better at night. It’s really great!”

I had pain for years!

yolanta“My back had hurt for a few years however it wasn’t until I felt the pain shoot up my spine that I decided to try chiropractic care. I thought that if I did more yoga or moved less the pain might go away on its own but it never did. What made me start treatment was the pain just got to be too much, I didn’t just want to have the pain minimized, I wanted to solve the issue. When I spoke with Dr. Johnson and he went over my exam findings I was relieved that I finally know what was going on and hopefully that it could be addressed. I felt improvement after the first adjustment but by the third or fourth adjustment I didn’t feel the pain shooting up my spine. I no longer have back or hip pain and my favorite unexpected benefit, anxiety Relief! While the prices are comparable to what you may pay at another chiropractor’s office, you might not get such a positive experience somewhere else. Even before I came into the office, over the phone, I could tell there was a positive energy at BLFC. I think people are nervous to hire a chiropractor because they are apprehensive that the adjustment might be painful. Dr. Johnson is very knowledgeable, as well as caring and gentle. I highly recommend BLFC to others and have, to multiple people. It’s nice to read stories of positive changes however it means the world to you when it’s your own story! Words don’t do justice for how grateful I am to have relied from the pain I felt for so many years. Thanks Dr. Johnson for having my back!”

Absolute Help from Chiropractic

“It took a good six months maybe longer but I’ve been coming for three years. If I wasn’t coming to Dr. Chad, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do every day for a living.  I help older adults move. I help them pack up. I help them move and unpack. So I do a lot of physical labor, five days out of the week. If I didn’t get adjustments I would be pretty hunched over. [chiropractic] Absolutely [helps me get through the day]. Dr. Chad has saved me from being old too soon. [ Work without chiropractic would be] pretty darn uncomfortable. I would not have good posture and I would hurt all over. I have fibromyalgia and [chiropractic] has helped with that. I’m more limber. I come in often! I am the greatest grandma on the planet and I want to be able to get down and play with my grandsons for the next twenty years.”

Drastic Results

aubrey“I woke up one morning and could not move, which is really important for what I do. I struggled on and off with back pain for a while and that was kinda the last straw. I got a referral a year ago [ to see Dr. Chad] and finally broke down and decided to see what was going on. Things have drastically improved [since I started coming in], I have never felt better! I’ve struggled with pain in my back as far back as I can remember, about 16. So that’s a huge issue I’ve dealt with half of my life, overall improvement with just pain and quality of life really. I always put everybody before myself, [and think] I’m okay, I’m fine, when really self-care is so important. I appreciate [Dr. Chad] so much!”

– Aubrey T.

Amazing!

“Initially I had some alignment issues because of carrying twins and some underlying stuff that had always been there that needed some attentions. We got me in and figured we would get the babies in too and then got the rest of the family in. I can feel how I stand differently. There were things that were ignored because life was busy and things were happening. It’s amazing what a 15 min trip can do. And putting the pieces back together.”

-Jeselle H.

From Hesitation to Immediate Results

carren“Being in daily pain from the base of my neck which radiated down both of my arms is what made me decide on chiropractic care. At first I was a little afraid and had no knowledge of chiropractic care so I was a little hesitant. After seeing my scans and x-rays, Dr. Johnson painted a gruesome picture of what my life would be like if I didn’t address my issues as soon as possible. I really considered money as a factor in my decision but getting seen at BLFC is more than worth it. I had almost immediate results with being pain free within the first week. WOW! I’m very happy I signed up. If they hadn’t done health screenings at curves I probably wouldn’t have come in. I am amazed at the knowledge Dr. Johnson and his staff have. I am learning new things daily. My whole attitude has been cleansed and I’m so much more positive. I’ve changed the way I eat and even the way I think about things. It is all for the better!
I think people are nervous to hire a chiropractor because of the unknown and the expense. I will tell you the expense is more than worth it! On top of that Dr. Johnson is very personable and a caring professional. He really puts me at ease and I look forward to coming into the office. My weekends seem so long now compared to before. I highly recommend BLFC to everyone! Chiropractic has changed my life in such a short amount of time.”

Enjoying Pregnancy thanks to Chiropractic

“[I am] 37 and a half weeks pregnant. I was desperate [on a] Friday night, because it can’t wait until a weekday, and I needed help on a weekend. We met on Saturday and by Sunday I was a whole new person. I was moving much better, I could put my pants on standing up instead of sitting down, which is a big deal. Four months [of dealing with this] would have been a lot easier. I would have enjoyed [my pregnancy more] had a better attitude, my coping skills would have been better. The earlier [you start chiropractic] the better! [nothing scary about getting adjusted while pregnant] it was all relief!”
