Meet The Thumms Our May 2015 Patients Of The Month

 

The Thumms Our Patients of the Month - July 2015

I have had headaches for as long as I can remember.  I always just treated them and moved on.  A couple of years ago, the headaches started increasing in frequency and really affecting both my life and the lives of my family.  It was time for a change.  I was hesitant in consulting Dr. Schulte as I had no previous experience with chiropractic care and no idea what to expect.  I will admit that I was hoping for a magical change at the time, but instead, I started on a path of slow healing to undo some serious neck problems.  Today, due to Dr. Schulte, I rarely have headaches and I have much better coping mechanisms to avoid them.  About a year after I started going to Dr. Schulte, I decided to have my 3 children evaluated to see if chiropractic care could help them.  My son Ryan is very active in a variety of sports, but he used to be sidelined by stomach pain and sinus infections.  Since starting with Dr. Schulte, his stomach pain is gone and he has not had a sinus infection. My daughter Colleen had no chronic complaints, but she did have the occasional headache.  I wanted to steer her away from the path that I had been on with headaches and improve her overall health.  My son Andrew used to get a lot of ear infections that would not go away.  He has not had an ear infection since starting with Dr. Schulte.  My husband Matt has had increasing back pain over the last few years.  While we were on vacation last summer, he tweaked his back to the extent that he could not fully enjoy the vacation.  Although he was the last member of our family to start at Schulte Chiropractic, he too has seen a huge improvement in his range of motion and his ability to avoid such an injury.  In short, our family has had a huge increase in health benefits since we started going to Dr. Schulte.  Although each of us has different needs, we have all been able to enhance our lives and our overall well-being due to chiropractic care.  We are so glad that we have taken this important step and it is all thanks to Schulte Family Chiropractic!          Tracy Thumm

Meet Jay and Anita! Our April 2015 Patients Of The Month

Meet Anita and Jay Clay - April 2015 Patients of the Month

“LET FOOD BE THY MEDICINE AND MEDICINE BE THY FOOD” Hippocrates

And it doesn’t hurt to have a great chiropractic professional on your team too!

We are Anita and Jay Clay and have had the good fortune to have found Dr. Greg Schulte in 2010. Thus our journey to wellness began even though we were unaware of what was going to happen to us along the way.

In the summer of 2012, Jay was diagnosed with benign non-essential tremors and hydro-cephalous. His condition was getting grim when shortly after, I was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer from a routine colonoscopy. Already taking a prescription drug for his tremors, Jay checked into Delnor Hospital on 8/28/12 for surgery to place a shunt in his brain to relieve the pressure of spinal fluid build-up, and two days later I was admitted for a colon resection. (We always do everything together.)

Then followed a year of intense physical therapy for Jay, chemo for me, a couple of gall bladder attacks, and finally a surgery to remove my gallbladder and reverse the colostomy from my first surgery. After some recuperation time, we made our way back to Dr. Schulte. He inspired us to get on a new path to wellness via regularly scheduled adjustments, nutrition assessments, appropriate supplementation and new food plans. Dr. Schulte introduced us to clean eating and exercise through the Paleo approach and we started attending his evening informational seminars. Building on that, we recently completed Dr. Schulte’s recommended Standard Process 21 Day Detox program and the results were remarkable. Both of us lost 12 lbs and felt wonderful. But the best news was about Jay’s tremors, in both hands. They had become only minutely noticeable and he had all but quit taking his prescription medicine. Very exciting results. For us, it confirmed that quality nutrition, exercise, great medical partners and a dedicated, caring, chiropractic professional, like Dr. Greg Schulte have been a life saver for Jay and me. We are grateful, every day and intend to stay the course for our lifestyle change. We intend to enjoy our best life going forward with the understanding that we are still a work in progress.

Meet Barb! Our March 2015 Patient Of The Month

Barb Gacic - February 2015 Patient Of The Month

15 years ago, excruciating pain as the result of plantar fasciitis in both feet, an intense fear of what treatment a podiatrist might prescribe and recalling successful chiropractic treatment as a child for bed wetting brought me to the recently opened practice of Dr. Schulte. I had nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying an alternative to traditional medical treatment. This one decision, and Dr. Schulte, have made an incredible difference in my total health and wellbeing for the past 15 years. Dr. Schulte keeps me moving with regular biweekly tune-ups. Even when I do too much snow-blowing, gardening and cross country road tripping in the car. Sometimes I even get an extra adjustment for age related misalignments. Dr. Schulte has also collaborated in my nutritional needs to improve my body functions even more. I come in for regular adjustments since I have found that consistence in scheduling and preventative maintenance is much more effective than waiting until there is a flare-up which takes longer for treatment to be effective. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Schulte, chiropractic treatment and the friendliness of Dr. Schulte’s Staff
