Success Stories

We are humbled and honor to be part of these transformations.

Linda’s Story –  Bed/House Ridden, Low Vitals, Migraines, Hip Pain 

Linda is a lovely and lively woman in her late 60’s, who is the life of the party and loves being the center of attention! She always has something funny to say and enjoys making people laugh! This beautiful soul had a rough patch before I met her, and she was not that lively when I first met her at my office.

Matt’s StoryPulmonary Fibrosis & Wrist immobility

When I first heard of Matt, it was through his sister, Annie, whom was under care at my office. She was having amazing breakthroughs in not only her physical endeavors, though in her mental and emotional wounds she had been dealing with. She soon asked, “I wonder if you could help my brother out.” She went on to share that her brother was a 24 year old young man, whom, at the time was having a really hard time with his health. She shared with me that the doctors in Chicago were unable to figure out what was going on, and her family was really upset that they might lose her brother!? Also, her mom worked in a hospital and had Matt on multiple prayer lists at various churches.

Holly’s StoryDepression, Anxiety, Migraines, Overwhelm

Hi, my name is Holly & I was referred to see Dr. Nick from a friend of mine who has been raving about Dr. Nick & his services.I have been experiencing numerous and agonizing symptoms; headaches/migraines, depression, brain fog, mood swings, anxiety, sluggishness, sleep issues. Besides this I was taking an increasingly amount of medications that was having heavy side effects. I was feeling like I was breaking down and my life was falling apart- I didn’t know what to do or where to go. Every doctor just wanted to throw pills at my problems. I felt like I was ready to GIVE UP before I met Dr. Nick. I can say that he has CHANGED & HELPED my life for the absolute best 🙂

Rusty’s StoryInfantile Failure to Thrive

Rusty was a 3 month old baby who had some extremely concerning health conditions…He weighed the same as his birthday – 7 pounds 4 ounces. He had blood in his stool, could not turn his head to the left past midline & was developing a flat skull on the right posterior side of his head. He would cry all day and all night, would vomit after meals and had eczema and skin rashes. His parents were scared to death and exhausted to say the least.

Linda

Linda is a lovely and lively woman in her late 60’s, who is the life of the party and loves being the center of attention! She always has something funny to say and enjoys making people laugh! This beautiful soul had a rough patch before I met her, and she was not that lively when I first met her at my office.

In Sept. 2018, I first heard of Linda through a practice member, LouAnn, both are friends of one another She wanted to bring Linda in for a few weeks, though the stars weren’t aligning. This practice member is a very special person, and was very concerned about her friend, Linda. LouAnn mentioned how grave her friend’s condition was, and didn’t know if I could help her. She mentioned that Linda was suffering from migraines, severe back pain, heart palpitations and was bed/house ridden for the past 5 months!? All of the doctors in Cedar Rapids & Iowa City had no idea why her health was in this state & didn’t know what to tell her and how to help her! Linda was really concerned about getting to move to Florida for the winter and was very worried that she wouldn’t be able to make the trip! This was about 2 months away?!

So Linda came to me, as her friend drove her to my office. Linda wasn’t necessarily excited to be here, because as she later admitted, “If all the best doctors in Iowa couldn’t help me, how is this chiropractic ‘doctor’ going to help me??” 

As she came into my office, using a walker with 2 tennis balls, we greeted each other and began to chat. I explained that I was looking for spinal tension, and that no one else in the state, in any profession, knew of this phenomenon and did not know how to address it effectively and safely. Well, she agreed to the exam and we found a high degree of spinal tension and stress stored in her spinal cord. This was squeezing off the life force that her body desperately needed and was not receiving!

Interestingly enough, she almost didn’t start care and needed to ‘ask her husband’ about the time and the cost of care. Two days later she came back, after her friend insisted that she start care. She came in and didn’t experience much change the first 2 weeks, and wanted to quit!? Even though her body was making incredible gains, she was unable to feel this process and her mind began to doubt. Her guardian angel, LouAnn, insisted that she remain under care and stick with it. As it turned out, the very next week, Linda drove to my office herself & without using her walker!

Linda’s body had done enough healing and reorganizing of tension, that she began to feel strong and healthy enough to not only move around the house, though she was able to actually get behind the wheel and drive around town!

This is something that had not been done in the past 5 months, and she was starting to lose any hope of a bright future! As it turned out, not only did every symptom improve and resolve itself, Linda felt like she was regaining her life – not only did she make it to Florida in time, her daughter shared her feelings as well.

‘I’m not sure what your new doctor is doing, though I finally have my mom back.”

Matt

When I first heard of Matt, it was through his sister, Annie, whom was under care at my office. She was having amazing breakthroughs in not only her physical endeavors, though in her mental and emotional wounds she had been dealing with. She soon asked, “I wonder if you could help my brother out.” She went on to share that her brother was a 24 year old young man, whom, at the time was having a really hard time with his health. She shared with me that the doctors in Chicago were unable to figure out what was going on, and her family was really upset that they might lose her brother!? Also,vher mom worked in a hospital and had Matt on multiple prayer lists at various churches.

Soon enough, Matt came to my office to get his spinal cord assessed and evaluated. As Matt walked in my office, I noticed that he moved very slowly. Even his speech was slow, & as he chose his words, he was unable to speak very fast- because if he did he would lose his breath and become very winded. So he needed to speak & move very, very slowly and cautiously.

He went on to share with me that he saw pretty much every top doctor in Chicago, and not one of them knew what was going on and how to help him! Matt mentioned that he couldn’t breathe very well and this restricted his communication and motion. His lungs had developed scar tissue on them and it was from some “Undiagnosed Autoimmune Disease.” The doctors mentioned that they only see this in 80-90 year old people and didn’t know what to tell him. He should take steroids and use an inhaler, and that they would monitor his condition. As he said this, he lifted up both wrists and mentioned that, “they also have no idea why I can’t bend or use either wrist.”

Both of Matt’s wrists were completed frozen, he couldn’t move them a millimeter! Well as startling as all of these symptoms were, I had a deep feeling that I could help him. So I enrolled them into an exam and under care, which was surprising because his mom wasn’t a believer right away (she wouldn’ look directly at me during the review of findings and snubbly said, “we need to think about it.” when I reviewed the time and cost recommendations).

As it turned out, Matt started care, a few gentle, light touches later – magic started to happen in the first couple visits. After the 1st adjustment he was able to breathe easier, and soon he was getting up and down stairs easier too! His wrists started to bend and function started to come back. As he progressed through care, his lab results kept improving. The doctors were amazed at his recovery and couldn’t explain it (they unfortunately were never informed that he was receiving care at my office). As the weeks turned into months, Matt’s condition completely healed and he was even experiencing emotional and social breakthroughs- every aspect of his life was transforming for the better! The doctors chalked it up as a “miracle.”

What we found was a significant degree of spinal tension in his spinal cord, and a high amount of tension was found in his neck area and shoulders. Looking at the neurology, these nerves not only go to the lungs and heart, they also go into the arms, wrists and hands. I found significant spinal stress here, as well as posture changes and abnormal spinal alignment on his x-rays. 

The reason why the doctors missed this is because they are not trained to look for it, it was never a possibility that this problem was coming from his brain and spinal cord. As most know, the brain and spinal cord control the body through sending information on how & what to do. 

In Matt’s case, his information highway was severely restricted and it caused his body to breakdown and produce this condition. Through light contacts, we were able to help his body reorganize this tension in a gentle yet powerful way that transformed his life on every level.

Matt has since gone on to be a very social young man, whom has pursued being an EMT and rescuing other people from health crisis’!

Holly

Hi, my name is Holly & I was referred to see Dr. Nick from a friend of mine who has been raving about Dr. Nick & his services.

I have been experiencing numerous and agonizing symptoms; headaches/migraines, depression, brain fog, mood swings, anxiety, sluggishness, sleep issues. Besides this I was taking an increasingly amount of medications that was having heavy side effects. I was feeling like I was breaking down and my life was falling apart- I didn’t know what to do or where to go. Every doctor just wanted to throw pills at my problems. I felt like I was ready to GIVE UP before I met Dr. Nick. I can say that he has CHANGED & HELPED my life for the absolute best :)

Prior to visiting Dr. Nick, I had tried numerous treatments, including traditional chiropractic, prescription medications, injections, therapy, alcohol, etc.

Since starting care, I have felt an improvement in my physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social health. I have noticed an improvement with my breathing, attitude, outlook on life, my sleep has gotten way better, and my energy, focus, joy & happiness have all soared! I feel like I can make more sound emotional connections. With this care I was able to cut all my medications down & I feel like I’m a functioning human again!

I would rate Inner Rhythms & Dr. Nick 5 out of 5 stars!

Rusty

Rusty was a 3 month old baby who had some extremely concerning health conditions…He weighed the same as his birthday – 7 pounds 4 ounces. He had blood in his stool, could not turn his head to the left past midline & was developing a flat skull on the right posterior side of his head. He would cry all day and all night, would vomit after meals and had eczema and skin rashes. His parents were scared to death and exhausted to say the least.

After receiving 3 adjustments to his spinal cord and brain stem- lil Rusty took off!!! He stopped bleeding in his stool, he doubled his weight, he could turn his head and he slept ALL night!? Eventually his head shaped balanced and his family put this dark patch behind them!!
