My neck, back, and shoulder pain is so much better!

The pain I had in my neck, upper back and shoulder is dramatically improved since starting treatment at HealthNOW Medical Center. My vertigo symptoms have dissipated as well!

I am extremely happy with my level of improvement. After intensive physical therapy treatment, I feel more in touch with my body and have learned to be aware of my posture.

The Physical Therapy Department consists of a wonderful team of caring folks. I recommend them to everyone I meet. I’ve learned so much about my own ability, physical strength and endurance. I am doing activities during my fitness sessions that I would never have believed I was capable of.

It feels great!

Since receiving treatment at HealthNOW, I wake feeling refreshed before the alarm goes off!

“For about the past 4 years I have had severe neck pain, shoulder pain and fatigue. Most mornings I woke up feeling like a loaded Mac truck had been running over me all night. Mornings were very painful.

 Since receiving treatment at HealthNOW, I wake feeling refreshed before the alarm goes off! The modified diet is working great. 

I know I still have a ways to go but I am reaping the rewards of this change in my lifestyle. I am a convert to HealthNOW philosophy and thankful for my sister-in-law who recommended the doctors and staff for my health care.
 Life is good!”


My severe migraines disappeared!

I came here with migraine headaches, asthma and neck pain. I had these severe symptoms for about 4 years. I was taking a lot of medication.

Now after being treated for a few months I rarely get migraines at all.

I only use my inhaler about once every couple of weeks and my neck doesn’t hurt anymore!

I now know that I do not have to hurt. Thank you!

I am sending this memo to you to express my gratitude for diagnosing my rib problem and treating it properly. This has been a blessing of gigantic proportion! 

I can now trace this injury back to the early 70s – thirty years ago! I cannot count the number of times I have been sent to physical therapy, had MRIs or been injected with cortisone. That process was very costly, time consuming and ineffective.
Your diagnosis of an out of place rib was right on the money. The relief resulting from your treatment was immediate.

Thank you! 

I cannot begin to tell you what it feels like to wake up in the morning and not have discomfort or pain. I now know that I do not have to hurt. The greatest relief to me is knowing that should I stress this rib again, there is something that can be done to relieve it. That is worth a fortune to me.

 Feel free to use this memo as a testimonial. It is meant as such!

 Thank you!!

Now all of my symptoms are gone!

“I was feeling depressed and fatigued. I had continuous discomfort in both of my wrists due to using the computer too much. I had a stiff neck and was feeling older than I really was. My body was not as flexible as it used to be and my posture wasn’t as upright as it used to be. I had had all these symptoms for at least 5 years.

 Now all of these symptoms are gone.
 I am 36, but I feel as if I was 26! 

Thank you, 


I have learned that I’m gluten intolerant so I’ve modified my diet to eliminate gluten.

I came to HealthNOW Medical to merely gather information about ways to alleviate extreme fatigue I’d been experiencing. For more than 10 years, I experienced a number of issues ranging from digestive to neck and back problems to just an overall bad/uncomfortable physical state.

Now not only am I almost 100% symptom free, but I’ve learned about triggers, such as gluten, that cause my body to react negatively. I have learned that I’m gluten intolerant so I’ve modified my diet to eliminate gluten. I was a heavy coffee drinker, and I learned that caffeine was affecting my adrenal glands, which was causing my fatigue.

Overall, I feel like a normal human being!!!! It’d been so long that I’d forgotten what it was like to feel “normal” and pain free. This wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for the folks at HealthNOW Medical.

A month later I feel really good!

I learned about HealthNOW Medical Center from a nutritional lecture given by Dr Petersen at work.

 When I came to HealthNOW I had a lot of lower back pain. It would take me several seconds to stand up straight because it hurt so much. I also had neck pain with limited range of motion. Since fatigue was a big part of my life, I also took advantage of the clinical nutrition part of the practice.

A month later I feel really good! My neck does not hurt at all and my back only gets irritated if I sit more than a couple of hours. A big improvement!

 I have learned a lot about how, when, what and why to eat. I’m still waiting for the results of my food allergy tests but the education alone has changed my habits and well being. I get through the day with more energy left over!

 Thank you to all the doctors who have examined and adjusted me.

I now feel that my body has stabilized!

Since seeing Dr Petersen I feel that my health is now perfect.

 When I first came in my sleep at night was about 3 hours total. I also had back pain. These things are now fine. It’s really nice to wake up and the clock says 7 A.M. instead of 3 A.M.

 Dr. Petersen also ran other tests which showed my liver was in a very dangerous condition. I’m very thankful that this got handled too.

 Over the last 3 years I haven’t had any cavities. I feel this is due to my dietary changes of cutting out a lot of sugar.

At one point my hair was starting to fall out. That has stopped too.

 My energy level was not good for a long time. But after making the dietary changes that the doctor ordered I feel much more energetic. 

I now feel that my body has stabilized and I know what I need to do in order to maintain it.

Thank you doctors and staff,

I have health now!

I am very pleased with my progress at HealthNOW Medical Center. When I first came in all I wanted was a quick adjustment for a sore neck. Never mind that I had limited movement when rotating my neck or couldn’t lift my left shoulder and had chronic lower back “outages”. I was so used to all of that – it was normal for me. When driving, I couldn’t rotate my head to the left to check for traffic. I couldn’t even lift my left arm up.

Now, after adjustments, physical therapy and the exercises they taught me, I have full use of my left arm. I can rotate my head and easily move it. I don’t have to worry about my lower back- its stable. I am no longer plagued by nagging pain. I have health now!

I am naturally cured!

Before I started coming to HealthNOW Medical Center I had several problems that were continual. Some of the problems were arm pain and numbness, migraines, high cholesterol, sleeplessness, back and neck pain.

After going to HealthNOW for only 3 months, most of my symptoms and problems have been resolved! 

I hurt my upper left arm while painting the inside of our house last summer. At night, the pain would become worse and my arm would feel numb. It would wake me up at night. I felt like I was becoming weaker all the time.

The Pneu-Back treatments (a specialized form of physical therapy) and the manipulations that got everything back in line and ended the numbness and pain.

 I also had frequent migraines. I did a hormone test and am now into the fourth month of taking my supplement and I have had no migraines this month. I feel like my emotions have leveled out and I do not feel as tired. 

I was on Zocor, a high cholesterol medication. I asked my internist if I could try to control my cholesterol with diet and exercise because the medication made me feel bad.

I went off the medication for three months and with HealthNOW’s help with supplements, nutrition counseling and exercise, I was able to lower my cholesterol naturally so I do not have to take the Zocor any more. 

Another problem I was having was with sleeping. I worked “grave yard” off and on for a while and when I went off that shift I could not sleep through the night. I started taking melatonin with the doctor’s recommendation and I sleep like a baby now. I have more energy and I feel 100% better. 

In addition to the above mentioned problems, I had neck, shoulder and back pain.

Through treatments on the Pneu-Back and manipulations I have no more pain. I do exercises every day for my back and neck and I feel stronger than ever. 

I am a person who likes things that are natural. I hated the thought of starting a medication that I would have to take for the rest of my life. I think it is a miracle that all my problems with my health were handled in a natural way. 

I have not felt this good for as long as I can remember. I am truly grateful and thankful to HealthNOW Medical Center.
