Dear Dr. Ridgeway,

Thank you so much for all the relief you have given me for my headaches stemming from my neck pain. Not only have I seen improvement over the months I’ve been coming in, but on several occasions, I have stumbled into your office with a blinding headache and left with complete relief. This has enabled me to perform better at my work and enjoy my evenings at home with my family.

Thank you so much!


Success Stories Santa Rosa Michael M.

Dear Dr. Ridgeway,

Thank you for the help I received over the past 2 months. Before seeing you for chiropractic care, I was experiencing a problem with my right knee and its range of motion. It was about to lock up on me while I was at the gym and sometimes walking at a faster gait proved challenging. I also had a stiff and sore back. As I started to get help I thought “well good, these areas are going to feel better." Much to my surprise, there has been much more than a knee. Now with normal range of motion and no pain, as well as a less stiff back. I walk better. I am more aware of my posture. Stretching out is easier, exercising is less strenuous. My sinuses started to drain (wow!) Simply put, I feel better throughout my body and mind. Thank you for your help and thank you for understanding when I was initially reluctant to come in and try a new approach to my overall health.

Dr. Michael Ridgeway, owner of natural health center is not only a very professional and skilled chiropractor, but listens and administers treatment with expertise and kindness. I have rheumatoid arthritis causing debilitating pain despite traditional medical treatment. After my daughter gave me a gift certificate for acupuncture, I went with skepticism-if traditional medicine could help me, why would acupuncture? Dr. Ridgeway uses low voltage electric current applied to the acupuncture point, no needles. I was shocked when after, the third treatment I felt better than I had in a year! But, the doubt continued and did the treatments. I could not understand how such a simple painless treatment could help me so much. I informed my rheumatologist about the acupuncture and the chiropractic treatments I had just started. He was very pleased to hear how successful it was for me and encouraged the treatments. Like many things in life, one treatment may not do the trick, but I found that in conjunction with traditional medicine I can live and enjoy the freedom from pain that was smothering my life. Skepticism gone! Dr. Ridgeway is a gift that my daughter doesn’t realized changed my life.


What People Say About Neck Pain, Back Pain, Headache Relief Center | Santa Rosa Chiropractors Mark S.

I have been a migraine suffer for almost 35 years. It affects my life greatly-sometimes daily. The pain is so severe that I don’t leave my house for a day or two at a time. I have these migraines at least once a week. I have tried many meds for preventative care but none are very helpful and most have terrible side effects. A couple of weeks ago I came in for my first visit with Dr. Ridgeway. I was experiencing my usual migraine and body pain. After receiving my first adjustment, my body pain subsided as did my migraine. I have never received any type of medical care and gotten that kid of immediate pain relief. I have been continuing my visits to Dr. Ridgeway. I have had 6 more treatments since then and my headaches have not been as severe as usual and my body pain is much improved. I used to have constant pain behind my left eye, almost like a tooth ache and that is gone now. I don’t dread waking up like I used to. I look forward to my continued recovery and good health. I believe I have finally found the answer after 35 years of migraine pain.

Dear Dr. Ridgeway,

I would like to thank you for your treatments for the past month. In two weeks, I was pain free! As an active guy wanting to do the triathlon this spring I can be pretty hard on my body. Training on top of having major spine fusion in college, my body can be finicky at times. I’ve been told by other doctors that my pain won’t go away and it’s something I have to live with. Since seeing you my body feels great and my training is almost pain free. No more cramped legs after a long bike rides or shooting pains from my hips after a long run. No other treatments have had the success that your sessions have had.

Thanks

I came to see Dr. Ridgeway for lower back pain that had me in the ER the night prior. Within 3 treatments I’m walking, moving, living without pain in three days! He took me from a 10 on the pain scale to a zero, incredible. Also, in conversation I told him of an on set of “tennis elbow" injury from working at the computer. He made an adjustment and now I am writing this testimony with no pain at all. I am a nurse and it’s important for me to work without pain. He is the best Medication in town.

Dear Dr. Ridgeway,

Thank you for introducing me to zerona treatment for weight loss. I never knew that cold laser therapy could be so effective for losing weight and inches without exercise. In six treatments I lost 6 inches and two dress sizes from a size 16 to a size 12. I feel better. Thank you again and I would recommend this treatment to anyone. It has given me a boost and I feel younger.

I have noticed a tightening of the skin around my target areas that we agreed to treat and I have more energy. Thank you so much. I feel more confident at work and in my social life.


What People Say About Neck Pain, Back Pain, Headache Relief Center | Santa Rosa Chiropractors Heather S.

Shortly before surgery was scheduled to relieve any symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, a friend of mine suggested I try chiropractic care with Dr. Ridgeway. I had no idea that the pain, tingling and lack of sensation in my left hand and arm could be treated by a chiropractor, but I was thrilled to learn that surgery was not my only treatment option. I began regular care with Dr. Ridgeway. I experience relief of my symptoms within a few short weeks. As my treatment continued, it became clear that these changes were permanent and I would not need surgery! Dr. Ridgeway’s ongoing care has not only eliminated my need for carpal tunnel surgery I have increased range of motion in my neck, learned to walk and work with a healthier posture, recovered joint and muscle flexibility throughout my body and been relieved of discomfort caused by the initial signs of arthritis. Thank you Dr. Ridgeway, for your ongoing care and cure.


What People Say About Neck Pain, Back Pain, Headache Relief Center | Santa Rosa Chiropractors Shannon T.

I am a competitive weightlifter and depend on my body to perform at the highest levels. Recently I had severe shoulder pain, limiting my performance and keeping me out of competition. I had seen several other doctors, two of whom recommend surgery. I was not willing to take the risk so I sought one last option. I saw Dr. Ridgeway and he immediately defined the problem. Within 2 weeks I was lifting with no pain and was finally able to achieve the kind of strength I needed to perform at my best. Recently I benched a personal best weight of just over 300 pounds, 60 pounds over my previous best. Thank you Dr. Ridgeway.

I had a stress fracture in my right foot and wore a boot for a few days. My right hip was hurting a lot. Dr. Ridgeway did an adjustment on a Saturday after hours. It relieved the pain and my wife told me that she could see a big difference in my walking.
