Dr. Anthony J. Hart
A long-standing muscle problem for which I had not been able to find help brought me, in near desperation, to Hart Family Chiropractic & Physical Therapy (thanks to my daughter's recommendation). But, that's a work making good progress and not what I want to write about. Rather, it's the "side benefits" of the spinal adjustment program that Dr. Hart designed for me. Some very recognizable and others not so apparent, but resulting harmoniously in improving bodily function. For many years late summer allergies, particularly ragweed and goldenrod, have resulted in a sore nose and teary, itchy eyes. This year, fields rich with these weeds surrounding our home had no effect on me! And I am even a better driver! Now I can turn my head to the left and right, increasing my ability to size up driving situations. In addition, my mind is sharper - no "brain fog". I have always enjoyed thinking through and solving problems. Memory is improved too. Ability to fall asleep at night is also improved. Needless to say, I am functioning closer to my optimum and am much happier for it, thanks to Dr. Hart's expertise, care and helpful team.
I have suffered from migraine headaches for over 20 years. During those 20 years I have tried it all prescription medications, over the counter medications, allergy tests, etc. My headaches would put me down and out for the entire day until I finally could fall asleep. These headaches were so severe I couldn't handle noise, light, eating and most of the time it would take hours to get to sleep. I remember being a child, and the pain was so bad that I just couldn't stand it I actually got to the point sometimes of hitting myself in the head. However, I did find one thing that worked for me most of the time, which was Excedrin as long as I took it at the onset of my headache and sometimes that wouldn't work. After numerous years of taking 20 pills of Excedrin per week on average, I knew it was time to try to find something to cure these headaches or I'm going to continue to tear my stomach up and get ulcers and who knows what else. It was the summer of 2009 when I ran across the Hart Family Chiropractic & Physical Therapy booth at Blaine's Blazing 4th carnival. They were offering exams on the spot so I figured I had nothing to lose. I found out that my "arc of life" (the arc of the spine in the back of your neck) was at an angle of -11 degrees, and this arc should be at 43 degrees, so my spine was out of position by 54 degrees. Dr Hart and his team put me on a treatment plan including traction and regular adjustments (traction focuses on improving your "arc of life"). My arc of life has improved significantly thus ELIMINATING MY HEADACHES COMPLETELY!!! Dr Hart and Dr Daniels are extremely good chiropractors, and just as important, they make sure that they educate their patients! Ellen (office manager) is absolutely great in working with the patients so that they understand the insurance/billing side of everything! The (scheduler) is always pleasant and offers an EXTREMELY flexible schedule! Also, the massages are great! Chiropractic is the ANSWER, not just for headaches!
I'd like to say a couple things about Dr. Hart & the treatment I've received from him. He is generous with his time; he has gone out of his way to address my chiropractic & nutritional needs. Other doctors could have charged more, with Tony it's just part of the process. With his adjustments, I feel a real difference in my physical, energetic & emotional balance. Sometimes the difference is subtle, sometimes sudden, but a lways deep. Dr Hart is a "hands on" healer in the real sense. In the chiropractic tradition a holistic & integrated catalyst. I look forward to seeing him & enjoy his sense of humor. He's my chiropractor & buddy in good health. Let him know what you need. He'll be there!
