I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.

"I have degenerative disc disease.  Chiropractic keeps me off drugs for the pain and keeps me walking.  Without the care of adjustments, I would probably not live the life I want, as the drugs given to mask the pain keep me in a fog with only minimal help."  -G.M.
 "I was told, by Waukesha's leading back surgeon, 30 years ago, that if I did not have 3 vertebrae fused together I would be in a wheelchair within 3 years.  That day I came to Dr. Heffernan.  I had to crawl into an exam room from the car and walked out after my first adjutment under my own power.  Chiropractic has saved me from a lifetime of back surgeries.  My mother has had 7 and my brother has had 9.  I am leading a normal, active life with none, thanks to J. Peter Heffernan."  -J.J.D.
"I have been a patient of Dr. Heffernan for the past 22 years.  No price tag can be attached to the impact chiropractic has had on my life.
My first adjustment took place when I was two weeks old.  I excelled in athletics from a young age on and was fortunate enough to play baseball at the collegiate level.  None of this would have happened without Dr. Heffernan.  My height disadvantage of 5'7" was countered with the ability to get better each day because I was always physically able to practice year round.  Medical doctors would have treated several injuries with prescriptions or recommended time away from the game.  I only missed one day of action in the course of my 16 year competitive career because of Dr. Heffernan's expert knowledge and ability to realign any part of my body.
Outide of injuries, my parents took me to see Dr. Heffernan if I developed a cold, flu, ear infection, or whatever else occurred.  Chiropractic quickly accelerates the body's ability to recover.  Most Americans visit urgent care centers where MDs prescribe expensive prescription medicines which address symptoms rather than a cure.  Chiropractors are the most underrated people in the health industry because of thir ability to cure the body which eliminates symptoms at the same time.
Dr. Heffernan's clinic is in a league of its own.  His experience, facilities, and ability to transfer knowledge to his team blow any other practice out of the water.  I will continue to recommend everyone I can to his clinic.  My life has been changed forever because of chiropractic, and yours can be, too."  -L.M. 

"One day, while reaching up into a cupboard, I became dizzy. The dizziness continued and after several days became much worse. I did some research to see what treatment I would receive from a physician. I found that if I sought medical treatment, I would have most likely been prescribed drugs, which may or may not have helped my problem. Since I have always had positive results with chiropractic care in the past, I decided that I would take a holisitc approach for my problem.
Dr. Amy Heffernan suggested xrays of my neck and back which indicated that the upper vertebrae in my neck were misaligned. I could feel a change in my condition after the first adjustment. Subsequent adjustments had a positive impact on my dizziness because the adjustments completely alleviated all of my symptoms.
When given the choice of either being prescribed toxic drugs or receiving chiropractic care, I am so happy that I once again made the right decision."  -J.K. 
Before I came in I had poor digestion, constant headaches, and could not lose weight or keep it off. I craved sugar particularly for energy. I was on medication for acid reflux and high blood pressure. I also had constant problems with swollen ankles and legs. Now my cravings for sugar are gone – in fact refined sugar is the only thing that causes acid reflux.  My blood pressure is down and I am off medication for it.  My weight is starting to go down and I have more energy and clarity in thinking. The swelling in my ankles is almost non existent and only happens when I sit too long at my desk with taking a break.” - J. M.


Before I came to see Dr. Amy my blood work showed kidney failure to the point that dialysis was imminent. Nine weeks later my blood work showed improvement of kidney function where dialysis was no longer considered necessary.” - J. P.


 Before I came to see Dr. Amy I had pain, stiffness, fatigue, and a general feeling that I did not have good well being. There were days I was in a fog and just could not get “with it”. My energy levels fluctuated daily, and I struggled to keep up with daily routines and my grandchildren at times. Now I am moving, have energy, and get into my daily routine almost immediately. Not only are my physical symptoms much improved, my energy level and attitude are ten times better. I no longer have the fear that I will have to resign myself to old age. Not only do I feel like I want to do things – I can do them! I am moving better, pain free! I am pleased with the results of this program and intend to follow through and continue the lifestyle changes it led me too.” - L.H.
