I am a 36 year old male who is very active in Basketball, Water sports and Hockey. A few months ago my athletic pursuits had come to a halt. I had a very sharp pain the center of my foot that was aggravated each time I tried to do the things that I love so much. I read on the internet about things I could do and I tried a few suggestions that didn’t seem to improve my situation. One day while speaking with one of my Co-Workers I brought up my issue and the pain it was causing me. He suggested that I see a Chiropractor, as he had seen success with treatment of many of his ailments in the past. I had never seen I Chiropractor and I was honestly a little skeptical of the whole process. I didn’t see how a Chiropractor could help me with my foot. I had thought that Chiropractors mainly treat back disorders and didn’t see the correlation. I decided to give it a shot; I figured it couldn’t get worse. I got on the phone with Dr. Danielle Hoeffner, who was very confident that she could not only help my situation but make the pain completely disappear. I was still a bit skeptical, but set up an appointment anyway. During the visit there was a thorough history taken and we specifically discussed not only my current issues, but also other nagging injuries I have had due to the punishment I seem to put my body through. On the first visit we jumped right in. She guided me through some exercises to test my mobility and after only a few minutes she was sure that I had some Plantar issues. She did a deep tissue massage, which was a bit painful but as she stated necessary to make it better. After the massage she applied Rock tape instructing me to keep on for at least one week. The tape felt awkward at first, but I was able to get used to it. I already felt better after leaving the office and the sharpness of the pain seemed to lessen. Not satisfied with just helping me with my foot problems she worked on my shoulder. She followed what seemed to be a very well thought out approach to determining the problems there, as well. I have had several shot’s over the years for my shoulder problems, as this seemed to be the only thing that worked in the past. She provided me with some exercises to do and made me commit to completing them religiously. By now you are probably ready for me to get to how I am now. In the past few months I have been able to return to my normal activities with little to no pain in my foot. My shoulder is getting better. I won’t say it’s perfect yet, but the exercises seem to be working for me just as she had stated they would. I know it’s a long road due to the injuries I have had, but now I know I CAN get better and don’t just have to deal with the pain. The moral of the story is don’t be skeptical. Chiropractic treatment has the potential to make your life better. As far as the treatment went,  Dr. Danielle is the one and only Chiropractor I have ever visited. She is very professional, takes the time to know her patients, seemed to be very concerned about getting me back to normal. She is an athlete herself, so she really seemed to know where I was coming from. I would recommend resoundingly the services I received from Dr. Danielle and just wanted to take the time to tell her and anyone else how much better I feel today. Dr. Danielle, thank you for all your help. Please feel free to have any of your patients reach out to me if they have similar problems and just need someone to talk to. If you have a message board or something like that please post this as I hope it will help people understand they don’t have to continue to live with pain everyday.   Thanks, Jeremy
