You saved me today!! Miracle. Worker. THANK YOU!!!
The real enemy today is inflammation! What could you remove from your diet to be healthier today?
My journey began with another chiropractor about 4 months ago. Was told that my pelvis was tilted one way on one side and a different way on the other, impingements were present in several places, and my kneecaps were not in the proper place. Realizing this treatment plan was going to be a sizeable investment both in time and money I decided to seek out a second opinion. (Honestly, felt kind of like I was at a cattle call with the first guy.) This is how I met Dr. Drew. His diagnosis jived with the first one, but his approach was so much better! First of all, he did not want to do duplicate XRays. He tried to save me money and exposure to radiation by having by having me pick up my first set of XRays from the other place. Secondly, he was quick to say that he did not work miracles but did believe he could help me. His estimation of treatments required was fewer than the other guy, but we were still in for months of multiple treatments per week. I gladly started treatment immediately.

After about 3 weeks Dr. Drew advised that I was not getting the kind of relief he expected and ordered an MRI. Kind of freaked me out and I tried bargaining with him explaining that I had actually not been resting and icing like he recommended. He was supremely patient and convinced me to have the MRI. The test showed that I had a congenital condition called Diastematomyelia which had never been diagnosed. My spinal cord was split and tethered. Apparently the condition is rare and we began a frantic search for a neurosurgeon who had actually performed the surgery before. Dr. Drew was with me every step, answering questions, sending referrals, and calming my nerves. This condition left untreated could eventually have caused more loss of strength and coordination, incontinence, and paralysis.

Today I am 3 weeks post op. 2 surgeons operated on me for 8 hours. All signs as of now indicate that the surgery was a complete success. Dr. Drew, through his unwavering commitment to patient care, got this journey started and I owe him a debt of gratitude. The only argument that I have with him is that I believe he is a miracle worker in getting this condition diagnosed.

btw - Mel is awesome and keeps the office running like a well oiled machine! :-)

Relieve Back Pain with Core Exercises 🙌

Our Story

LakeCrest Chiropractic & Wellness was founded with a heart for health and one lofty desire: to offer a hands-on, drug-free approach to healthcare, all while changing our community through a socially conscious business.

How do we go about doing that? We put patient care first. ALWAYS. Everyone is different. Every situation is different. Every BODY is different. We focus on the individual: what is working, what is not, what is improving, and what needs to change.

And what else?

We believe in giving back. We have been blessed with the best patients on the planet (seriously!), and want to honor them and our community. That’s why for *all* of 2018, we’ve partnered with The Foundry’s Pack-A-Sack program, and for EVERY new patient we see we’re donating a weekend worth of meals for a child in need.
