After a car accident in 1982 I experienced whiplash and restricted Neck and upper back movement. It started in my shoulders and arms and moved to my hips where I could hardly walk because of severe muscle spasms. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 1990. Before this I was always active physically and thought my life was changed forever. After seeing Dr. Nord started me on Shaklee Calcium-Magnesium and my muscle spasms were reduced. He had me come in frequently at first to correct and then stabilize my condition. Now I go in once a month to keep me flexible since I have started to regain my previous physical lifestyle. I have learned alot about nutrition and taking care of myself. I'm in control and it feels great! S B.
My 3 year old son has had a history of Asthma for 2 1/2 years. He was put on Nebulizer treatments 3x/day for prevention. We thought moving to Boise and being off dairy would give immediate relief, but 2 1/2 months later he started having attacks again as soon as we missed a day of preventative nebulizer treatments. About one month after beginning treatment with Dr. Nord, we were able to stop nebulizer treatments, and we have had no problems since. L. K. - Happy Mom
My job requires prolonged periods of standing and bending. I started seeing Dr. Nord of Eagle Chiropractic in April of 2011 for lower back pain and foot pain. I had been suffering with lower back pain for several months before that, just hoping the pain would heal on its own. When I first saw Dr. Nord I almost came off the bench from the pain in my lower back just from the doctor touching the area while examining my back. Through my treatment and stretching that I have been working on for the past few months I have improved significantly and feel so much better in my feet and back. I have had more energy and just feel better all the way around. I am very thankful for and I wish I would have seen him months earlier. I am still continuing to see Dr. Nord for strengthening and treatments for my lower back. D. S.
To say that I had been skeptical about the benefits of going to a Chiropractor would be an understatement. I know little about the treatment beyond what you see on situation comedies on television. Several years ago I started suffering from migraines. Over time they became more intense and more frequent getting to the point where I suffered and lost approximately 8-9 days out of each month. After trying traditional treatments, tracking triggers, keeping a journal and taking various prescription medications without success, my brother (a firm believer in and regular user of chiropractic) urged me to see his chiropractor, Dr. Shawn Nord. After speaking with my family physician and still being somewhat apprehensive, I made an appointment with Dr. Nord. I've been seeing him for three months. The improvement has been marked. During this time, I have only had one major migraine and one migraine that I would consider minimal (no vomiting, able to cope with noise and light). In my opinion, this is a huge and great improvement. WAHOO! Going six weeks without a migraine headache has improved my quality of life immensely. Dr. Nord made no claims or promises. What he did was tell me that he felt there was a good chance he could help me reduce the frequency and the intensity of the migraine pain. That he has done. For that I thank him, so does my wife, my brother, and my family. A. W.
