Decrease Headache Frequency and Intensity

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

My wife, Janee, obtained treatment from Dr. V. after a traffic accident in October soon after she kept telling me how much he was helping her, so on one occasion when she was being treated he also gave me an adjustment and agreed that I would make an appointment to do a complete analysis. Dr. V. discovered through the first examination and interview that I had numerous problems that were contributing to my headaches, lower back pain, and running problems. He said my hips were out of alignment and if I would let him do several adjustments he could repair that problem and guarantee that I could run again. He also recommended a diet change that he felt would help my headaches so after approximately 2 ½ years of continual treatment from Dr. V I virtually have no headaches, my lower back still requires occasional attention, however it is not a continual pain as before and I am running again with no knee, foot, or hip pain like I had prior to under going Dr. V’s treatments. I am planning to continue my running regime and hopefully build up to another Marathon in the future. By the way I am a 57 year old man and feeling better then when I was 50.

Decrease Back Pain

Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

I just want to thank you for all your help in restoring my health. My back pain was so intense when I hurt it in May 2000, that I thought I may have to quit work. It is scary to feel disabled and in pain. Your spinal and hip adjustments and recommendation quickly eased my pain. The primary reason I keep driving to see you is that you show concern and care for your patients. I feel you take a personal interest in your patients and care about their health and well-being. Thank you for relieving my pain and being such a good friend!

Thank you again for all of your physical, emotional and spiritual help you have given to me over the past two and half years. My back and my spirit are healing gradually! You are a blessing to me!

Children’s Chiropractic Care

In the fall of 1997, I enrolled my 18-month old daughter, Eden, in a Mother’s Morning Out program. In spite of only going 2 mornings a week from September through May, she missed fully half of the program that year. The second year was not much better.

During that time, I heard about a friend in another state whose 2-year old twin daughters had been hospitalized repeatedly with asthma and respiratory infections, sometimes requiring time in a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. One day in 1988, their Mom took them to a health fair. A Chiropractor stopped Gayle and said she could tell the twins had been ill a lot lately and correctly identified which twin had experienced the most difficulties. She suggested an adjustment for just that twin. When Gayle agree, the Chiropractor did a gentle adjustment and told her that the child would either not sleep at all that night or would sleep more soundly then ever before. Within a short time, the child’s nose began running copiously with drainage that appeared to be infected. This continued for several hours until sometime before bed. That night, the child slept through the night for the first time in her life…and Gayle took the other twin to be adjusted the next day.

I was interested in the story, but it came from a rather melodramatic Grandmother who tends to tell stories with great passion and embellishment. She’d make a great fisherman. So I set it aside and did nothing with the information.

However, as Eden’s second year in the Mother’s Morning Out program was coming to a close, I met another child’s Mom who reported a similar experience. She was extremely pleased with the progress her daughter had made and with Dr. Kent Vanderslice, her Chiropractor.

Hearing such similar stories from people who did not know each other made me take a second look at Chiropractic. I had utilized a Chiropractor years earlier to help me heal a back injury. I was comfortable with Chiropractic in that arena, but completely skeptical in terms of its use as preventative medicine. Being a second generation Registered Nurse, I was heavily steeped in traditional medicine.

Seeing my daughter so miserable, though, I decided I had nothing to lose but money. I began taking her to see Dr. Vanderslice just after her 3 rd birthday. I spent a year certain that I was wasting my money, but I had mentally committed to giving Chiropractic a full year to prove its benefits.

I took Eden to our Pediatrician for her 4-year check up in the spring of 2000. We both commented that it had been “awhile” since I had to bring her to see him. What neither of us realized until he looked back in her chart was that it had been a whole year since we’d been in the office.

She had not a single “sick” visit since we started seeing Dr. Vanderslice. It was not that she’d never been sick. Instead, as soon as she started running a temperature, I’d take Eden in for an adjustment and I rarely had to give her Tylenol or Motrin again.

That was the beginning of the change for me. I must admit that change was grudgingly though…until I got a massive head and chest cold. My eyes were tearing and running so badly that they were quite swollen from being wiped constantly. I had difficulty seeing to drive, but I went to see Dr. Vanderslice. Within 15 minutes after the adjustment, my eyes had quit running. I had an occasional tear over the next day or two, but the worst was over.

I still can not profess to understand Chiropractic, but I’m now much more open to using it as a primary treatment modality. Eden and I continue to see Dr. Vanderslice for regular adjustments as well as when we are sick. I continue to be pleased with the results.

Eden Reaves, 6 years old


Dear Dr. Vanderslice,

Last June I had my first child and a few years ago I was rear ended by a semi. The chiropractic care I’ve had in the past all took place before both of these events. It was amazing how quickly I healed, how flexible I was, and how great I felt when I was receiving chiropractic care those ten ears ago.

So after having our baby and beginning to really feel some terrible low back pain, I decided to try chiropractic once again. My husband us an elite cyclist. He began to have an interest in checking out chiropractic and I encouraged him because of my experience with it.

During our birth classes and following our daughters’ birth, we began to realize the huge benefits she could gain from this healing touch. We signed up our entire family and are now enjoying our bodies return to optimal health. Additionally, our daughter has not had a single ear infection and is very rarely found with respiratory issues. We Believe!
