Back to Running

Dr. Ricker,

My pain level hit a 9-10 in 2012. Finally it was time to seek help from a chiropractor. I’m so lucky to have stopped to get a consultation during last year’s Safety and Wellness Fair at Boeing.

I have been at Boeing for about two years now, and a lot of my work has been on the floors, which I’m in a kneeling position and crouching all day. Some days I’ll be using step ladders, or just in a bent position which tended to increase my pain level.

Going through the therapy program, where I learned much needed exercise, general positions to get me back into shape, stretching my upper chest and neck. Also, once I was shown how to correct my sleeping posture it helped a lot! I was also given exercises on the medicine ball to gain strength and balance for my upper and lower back.

Before coming to Dr. Ricker I used to take lots of Advil, Ibuprofen, etc and I struggled to get a good night’s sleep. Now, after starting my treatment plan with Dr. Ricker in August 2012 and with massage therapy at the clinic, as well, I haven’t had the need for pain medicine and my back and knees don’t hurt anymore.

I’ve learned to take the time at home and work to stretch, my bones and muscles work better together, and I can enjoy walking, running, and hiking in the mountains again. Dr. Ricker, Rachael(massage therapist), Michelle(front desk), and everyone at The Health and Wellness Clinic, I appreciate your help and answering all my questions. Thanks for getting me back in shape to do my job and my hobbies!

Upper Back Discomfort

I sit at a desk 8-10 hours a day working on a computer or in meetings. After a couple of years of working in unintentional hunched postures my upper back and neck began to feel tight, stuck, and painful. Dr. Ricker losened my muscles, adjusted my spine, and taught me proper posture. She gave me stretches and exercises to help relieve the pain and build my postural muscles.

Now I know how to take care of my spine and can work and play without pain. I have gained back several of the activities I had given up due to pain. Thanks goodness for chiropractic and Dr. Ricker!

Car Accident/Whiplash

The great care and compassion that I have received as a client of the Health & Wellness clinic in general and Dr. Ricker in particular has prompted me to want to share my story. On December 1, 2010 I was involved in an auto accident, I was rear ended on the freeway, and the next day I was in quite a bit of pain. I contacted my doctor, Jane Barnes, at the Health & Wellness clinic requesting advice regarding treatment, Dr. Barnes recommended I see Dr. Ricker. I called the office and was able to be seen that very afternoon. During the initial visit Dr. Ricker took time to go over everything that was troubling me and did a complete examination. I returned to the clinic the following day for the results of and recommendations. Dr. Ricker again took time to explain the injuries she detected and the course of treatment she recommended. She explained the importance of following the treatment and the length of time it might take. She also took the time to explain some of the things I might experience during treatment so that I was fully aware from the beginning of what was to come. This helped me feel comfortable in her care. I began treatment that very day and the next week due to the significance of my injuries Dr. Ricker recommended massage to aid in my healing.

I have been working with the Health and Wellness clinic for several weeks. My condition has improved greatly and I am very pleased with my progress. I am also very pleased with how I have been and continue to be treated by all the staff and professionals at the Health and Wellness Clinic. Dr. Ricker takes time to educate me about my body and how it works. She gives me exercises and explains how and why the exercises will help me. Kendra the massage therapists is kind and compassionate, she addresses my specific needs as they change. I am always treated with respect and regard when I arrive for my appointments. I am greeted by Jill at the front desk she is always cheerful and kind. The entire experience has added to my overall health and wellbeing and I am very grateful.

A New Woman!

Wow! There has been a significant change in my life since coming to Dr. Ricker. I am a 67 year old woman, who was suffering with severe hip pain, lower back pain, and mild headaches. I thought I was heading for hip surgery and never again being able to crawl around on the floor with my granddaughter.

Wrong! After 5 visits, my hip pain was considerably less and the headaches occurring much less frequent.

Surprise! After 1 ½ months of adjustments and doing the prescribed stretching exercises, I am a new woman! 90% of the time, I am pain free, able to get up from the floor, and in/out of chairs and cars without any effort.

Bonus! My husband enjoys that I do not snore as loudly or as much.

Thank you, Dr. Ricker!

Herniated Disc

I’m a 35 year old woman with a history of herniated disc in my lower back. I was going on 6 months of low back pain and extreme stiffness especially when I would sit, stand or lay down for any period of time. It would take me 5-10 minutes to be able to move easily but the pain would still be there. I started seeing Dr. Ricker after meeting her at my gym in January. I was very skeptical and for a long time never wanted to use a chiropractor for fear of the potential of making my pain worse. I was quickly surprised. I started with three times weekly and gradually started feeling better. I even got to where I really enjoyed my visits. After the first month I was much improved and I started being more aware of my body and what actually hurt. I’m down to once a week (it’s May now) and my pain is much less with very little if any stiffness. I don’t know where I would be had Dr. Ricker not been in the gym that day at the exact time I was there, I believe everything happens for a reason.

Low Back Pain

When I came into the office I was feeling very tight and sore. I went in for an adjustment and heard many pops and when I stood up my head felt very light and free.

When I first came to see Dr. Ricker I had lower back pain. After many adjustments and learning stretches and exercises I keep feeling better and better. I still have a ways to go but I am very confident I will keep getting better and better.

I would recommend Dr. Ricker to anyone.

I Can Walk Again

When I first came here I could hardly walk at work. Now I can walk further than I have had the ability to in the last 8 years! I am sleeping better and feeling better all the way around. I would recommend anyone to come and feel better. Find a new way of life with no pain.

Massage

I had a great massage at the Health and Wellness Clinic. My therapist was very good and worked with me through some rather complicated issues–all the while providing me with a very relaxing, enjoyable massage. I would highly recommend!

That was a great massage. I highly recommend the Health and Wellness Clinic to everyone. Both my husband and I enjoyed it very much. I scheduled 3 more appointments for my neck/ shoulder injury from my car accident.

The massage therapists at the Health and Wellness Clinic are fantastic! Both my husband and I were very impressed and we will definitely be back! Quiet and relaxing atmosphere too.

Love coming here… Every time I leave, I always feel refreshed and better… Can’t wait to go back… Staff are always pleasant.

The clinic was peaceful, the therapist was professional and very nice. She was able to tell me in depth what was happening with my body and work things out from there. I feel much looser, more comfortable and able to complete my runs with little hinderance.

I feel I have finally found that perfect combination of massage, physical therapy and relaxation/stress relief. My therapist listens and questions, offers powerful and effective therapies such as hot rocks and suction cups (to really get at the core issues), and finds just the right spots! I’ve had many, many massages, but this therapist is the best I’ve been to. They also offer chiropractic and acupuncture so its an awesome one stop shop!
