Psoriasis (Skin Rash) Testimonial
Currently I am enrolled in classes at the University of Iowa College of Pharmacy. I have had the opportunity to learn about medications and the undesired side effects one may experience. Through knowledge and education I fully understand the importance of specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments that remove spinal misalignments (subluxations) to allow my God-given body to heal from above, down, inside, out. As a four sport high school athlete I utilized chiropractic, but only when I suffered from back, neck, or ankle pain. When Dr. Alex started chiropractic school I was educated on the importance of regular wellness check-ups; however, I did not practice this form of chiropractic care initially. In the summer of 2011 I suffered from a severe rash that covered my entire body. It was so devastating that I no longer wore a swim suit the rest of the summer, and I would frequently wear long sleeve shirts with jeans in the hot summer weather. I went to many doctors visit to get blood drawn to see what could be the cause of the rash. After the many needle pokes and doctor examinations, they determined they could not diagnose my problem; so, they first prescribed an antibiotic. When the antibiotic did not work, the doctor prescribed an anti-fungal. When the anti-fungal treatment failed the doctor sent me to a dermatologist. The dermatologist determined that I was suffering from an uncommon psoriasis outbreak and prescribed a cream to apply to affected areas. When the process had been drug out for a total of two months, and I suffered many side effects from the medication, Dr. Alex scheduled me an appointment with a chiropractor. The chiropractor recommended going dairy free and gluten free along with a specific, scientific adjustment care plan to try and eliminate the rash. This seemed to help slightly, but was a difficult dietary plan to follow initially. As I began to reinstate dairy and gluten into my diet the rash continued to disappear. It was at this moment I realized the true benefits of having a healthy spine to allow the messages to flow freely from the brain to the rest of the body. Along with the eradication of the rash, specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments improved my digestive issues, menstrual complications, and mood dramatically. I continue to be under a care plan with Dr. Alex and live a happy, healthy life!
No More GERD!
When Emma was born, her delivery progressed very quickly in its final stages. Due to her quick descent in the pelvic cavity, she had slight facial bruising when she was born. Within the first days of Emma's life, she was experiencing GERD. After almost every feeding she would projectile vomit the breast milk she had just received. We also noticed that she did not want to rotate her head much, and generally stayed in one position. We knew immediately she needed to be checked by a principled chiropractor. At day 6 of her life, she was adjusted for the first time. The top bone in her neck had become misaligned during the birthing process. It was properly adjusted and we began to watch Emma's body heal and function the way it was designed to. We saw an immediate response to the GERD, and over the following, few days noticed an increased range of motion with the rotation of her head. Within one week after her initial adjustment, she no longer had symptoms of GERD and had full mobility in her neck.

Emma is a living testament to the importance of chiropractic care in children. Her body is a self-healing and self-regulating organism, just like yours and mine. Always remember, the power that made the body heals the body!
When I saw that the rest of my family was getting healthier at Revive Family Chiropractic, I decided that I needed to get to the cause of some of the health issues I was also dealing with. When I first came to see Dr. Alex I was suffering from weekly headaches, some mid-back/shoulder discomfort, and also numbness that would go all the way down my arms and into my hands. After being under specific chiropractic care for 5 months, I have noticed that I am getting fewer headaches that are not as severe. My back and shoulder pain is continuing to get better with each adjustment. I also sprained my wrist a few months into my care, and I noticed that my wrist healed much faster than I thought it would since I was continuing with my adjustments. I always leave feeling rejuvenated after my adjustments. Dr. Alex is always willing to spend some extra time with me if I have any questions. It is always a pleasure to see the team and to catch up with them at my weekly adjustments!
I Don't Need My Inhaler Anymore!
I started coming to Revive Family Chiropractic after I was having a hard time breathing during my workouts. I was having to stop in the middle of exercising because I would have to use my inhaler in order to continue. Dr. Alex told me that specific chiropractic care could help with my breathing trouble, so I came into the office for a neurological evaluation and found that I had severe levels of nerve interference. Dr. Alex told me that the interference I had was causing the health issues I was experiencing. After coming to Revive Family Chiropractic I am no longer using my inhaler at all! I am able to be more active and I don’t depend on my inhaler. The specific adjustments have also helped with things that I didn’t know were an issue. I was taking several naps in the evenings after work before I started getting adjusted. After regular chiropractic care, I feel less tired and am not taking as many naps! Chiropractic has helped me in obvious ways with things I didn’t even know were a problem. I want everyone to know that chiropractic works!
No More Pills For Me!
I started seeing Dr. Alex in March of 2014. I came to the office because I was suffering from Irritable Bowel Syndrome, high blood pressure, cholesterol issues, and low back pain. I was also taking over 15 medications for all of my health conditions. After about 3 months I was able to get off my first medication! While continuing my regular chiropractic care I have been able to get off 2 more and am about to get off my 4th medication. This has been a huge blessing for me because I was told that I would have to take these medications for the rest of my life. I am so happy that I have found a better way to health!
No more spitting up!
I first started bringing Gunner to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because his nervous system checked after delivery. I knew an adjustment early on in life would give him a head start to living a healthy childhood! I continued to bring him to Revive Family Chiropractic for adjustments when he would projectile vomit after eating on a regular basis. After receiving his specific scientific chiropractic adjustments I have noticed at 3 months he started sleeping 8-10 hours every night and stopped projectile vomiting. What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is Dr. Alex is amazing! Gunner’s pediatrician told us that it was normal for him to spit up a lot. I thought that was crazy, so I told Dr. Alex about it and he said to get him adjusted. Sure enough after 1 adjustment we noticed a HUGE difference in Gunner. He barely spits up now and sleeps like a champ!
No More Pain!
I first started coming to see Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because my father was receiving care her and recommended that I come. I was having neck and back pain, as well as suffering from depression and anxiety. Furthermore, I would get monthly migraines.
After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments the changes I have noticed are amazing! I now have little to no more neck or back pain! I’ve also noticed significant improvement in the frequency of my migraines. I’ve only had one migraine since I started seeing Dr. Alex.
What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is that they care about your health and are invested in getting to know you. They honestly want you to get better and reach your full health potential.
I Can Eat And Talk Again Normally!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because my jaw was in such terrible pain, I couldn’t even open my mouth. Eating, talking and such was really difficult until after just a few appointments! . After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments the changes I have noticed are life changing. After just a few appointments I could eat and talk again without hardly any pain. Now I almost have no pain after only 3 months of treatment. What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is Dr. Alex is a really great chiropractor and helped me a lot with my jaw. I highly recommend Revive Family Chiropractic!
I feel much better now!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because I was suffering from daily aches and pains, especially in my lower back and neck. After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments I have noticed that my aches and pains have disappeared! Also, I no longer get frequent headaches, and I am no longer suffering from dizzy spells. I would strongly encourage everyone to stop by Revive Family Chiropractic to receive a neurological assessment; even if you are skeptical! Once you start chiropractic care you’ll start noticing your body work and function better! Since I have started chiropractic corrective care I have noticed my body functioning better and living a happier, healthier life! Chiropractic has changed my life, and I’m sure it will yours too!
No More Chronic Sinus Or Back Pain!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because I was having chronic sinus issues. After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments the changes I have noticed are my sinus conditions have improved and my back pain is SO much better. What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is they are the most caring, and helpful ‘family’ ☺.
Healthier Than Ever!
I started coming to see Dr. Alex when I was suffering from severe low back and hip pain. The pain would even travel down my legs and cause me to have difficulty moving. I was also suffering from headaches that would bother me on a weekly basis. After I visited the office on my first visit, I learned that specific chiropractic care could also help with the stomach digestion issues I was also dealing with. After a few adjustments at Revive Family Chiropractic, I started noticing that my health was drastically improving! I noticed my low back and hip pain improve and eventually get totally resolved! My headaches are continuing to improve. I have also been able to reduce the amount of stomach medication that I am taking and I don’t even consider my stomach problems an issue anymore! During my first winter under specific chiropractic care, I noticed that my mood is much better than ever before. For the past 20 years I used to suffer from the “winter blues” when I was not able to get enough sunlight. This is the first winter in a very long time that my mood has remained positive and happy! Chiropractic has helped me a great deal!
MORE TESTIMONIALS TO COME!!!
Healthy Childhood thanks to Chiropractic!
I do not have any major health problems, with the exception of an attitude, but I still get checked regularly. When I was younger, I struggled to crawl on all fours. I liked to army crawl. My uncle, Dr. Alex, looked at my spinal alignment and discovered a major subluxation in my lower back. After a couple adjustments, I was crawling so fast and causing a lot of mischiefs. It was awesome!! Soon after I learned to crawl, I was walking and running. Due to my inexperience, I seemed to fall a lot; Uncle Alex helps me stay healthy through specific, scientific chiropractic adjustments. I am blessed to have such a rocking uncle!!

Athlete knows chiropractic works!
Dr. Alex is an amazing person and great chiropractor. He has always taken great care of me and helped me reach my health goals. I have always been an athlete and was a division 1 football player. Throughout my athletic career, I had many injuries but the most debilitating one was severe back pain. It happened lifting weights and I couldn’t walk. I had pain going down both legs with numbness. Not only was I scared and hurt but my football career was in jeopardy. I was told I needed a shot in my back multiple drugs, and to lay down for 2 weeks without moving. After that I was to consult with a surgeon to “fix” my problem. After starting chiropractic care, I learned what was causing the ROOT CAUSE of the problem. Dr. Alex always takes the time to explain how my body works and heals. Chiropractic literally changed my life! I also have noticed a significant increase in my endurance and strength. While doing some research I found out that many professional and Olympic athletes utilized specific chiropractic care simply to increase performance. I have no longer had any issues and am able to exercise at 100%. Dr. Alex’s chiropractic adjustments are very gentle, safe, and specific; but most of all they are effective. He takes great pride in his work and it shows in the results I got while under his care. He educated me on how my body works and how healing comes from above, down, inside, and out. He taught me that God made our bodies be healthy, and as long as there is no interference with the nervous system, it will be healthy. He uses state of the art technology to find the exact location of my nervous system disturbance and corrects it, there is no guessing. I would recommend anyone who has been suffering and is looking for a better way to true health to seek out Dr. Alex and his wonderful staff at Revive Chiropractic.
No More Migraines!
I went to Revive Chiropractic for a neurological assessment to see if any of the problems that I was having could be helped by chiropractic care. I had allergies, sinus issues, mild asthma and arthritis in both knees. I was also having problems with headaches and migraines, low energy and some dizziness, which I attributed to having had several ear infections in the late winter and early summer. I was taking a daily allergy medication as well as taking medicine regularly for arthritis and headaches. On my first visit to Revive Family Chiropractic, I brought my daughter with me who was suffering from daily headaches, allergies, asthma, and depression. Our neurological assessments showed that chiropractic care may be beneficial in relieving many of these symptoms. We were both amazed that within less than two weeks of adjustments, we felt so much better. Prior to initiating care, my daughter rated her headaches a 5 on a 10 point scale, when she was not experiencing a migraine. Her headaches have decreased from daily headaches to less than once per week and she rates them lower than a 1 on the 10 point scale. Her depression symptoms have also decreased. We were both able to stop taking our allergy medication and have no allergy symptoms. My sinuses drained and the dizziness and arthritis pain disappeared. After one month of care, I am pleased to say that neither of us has had a migraine since we started getting adjusted. I have not had any problems with my knees. We have both seen tremendous benefit from our asthma symptoms. And we are still in the beginning of our chiropractic care! I have been amazed by the difference in how I feel. I did not realize how poorly I must have felt prior to starting chiropractic care, but I am so much healthier now! My daughter has said the same is true for her. We are so glad we started getting the care we needed to become healthier.

I Can Breathe Again!
I started under chiropractic care when I was in high school. I was a tennis player so I was always twisting my back which would sometimes cause a lot of pain. I would go to the chiropractor when I was in so much pain that I would not be able to walk. I would go for a couple visits until I felt better and I wouldn’t go back until I “needed” it again. When I started under care with Dr. Alex I learned that principled chiropractic care could help with other health issues I was having. I was diagnosed with asthma when I was very young. I was on 2 different inhalers that I had to take everyday. I was also suffering from several episodes of vertigo a week. There was no pattern as to when they would happen and it was starting to make me nervous when I would exercise, work, or drive. After about a year of specific, scientific chiropractic care I was able to throw my inhaler away, which was awesome since it was something I thought I would deal with for the rest of my life. I also noticed my vertigo episodes were becoming less frequent and I actually haven’t had any issues for 8 month now! Chiropractic has changed my life and I love being able to share that true health and healing comes from above, down, inside, out!!
Chiropractic Care has made a huge difference in my life!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because my neck pain was so severe I couldn’t move my neck.
After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments the changes have been incredible!
I have noticed my neck feels almost normal, I hardly ever get migraines, I am less stressed, I have less pain overall and my gallbladder went from not functioning properly to not having any problems right after being adjusted.
What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is regular chiropractic care has made a huge difference in my life.
We have stuck with the plan Dr. Alex has come up with and I have not regretted it. It has saved me from unnecessary medications and surgeries.
It has also made a big difference in the health of my husband and children.
No more migraines!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because I have suffered from chronic back pain due to a sports injury that occurred 20 years ago. Since then I have been to medical doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists with no relief. I have also dealt with chronic migraines and headaches for the last 10 years. The pain was so severe I was taking Excedrin almost on a daily basis. After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments I no longer have migraines or headaches, and I have completely stopped taking Excedrin! My back is finally getting better, and my overall health has improved. What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is if you’ve given up on feeling better, give Revive a try! The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Dr. Alex is amazing and has given me a better quality of life which I never thought would happen.
No Cortisone Shots!
When I first came to see Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic my knee was very painful. I could hardly walk because I couldn’t put any weight on it and it was very swollen. My medical doctor told me that I should get a cortisone shot in order to help with the pain, but I decided that I wanted to do something drug free and I decided to come see Dr. Alex instead. After receiving my first specific, scientific chiropractic adjustment I walked down the hallway without any pain! I was so thrilled! Since I have continued to get adjusted and I still pain free! I am able to walk better and feel more flexibility in my knee. I want people to know that chiropractic is a great thing! It has helped me so much and I am so glad I found Dr. Alex. I am raising two young children so not having knee pain has made such a difference for me. Chiropractic is a great way to avoid medications and surgeries! I give Dr. Alex an A+!
I first started coming to see Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because I was experiencing everyday back pain that kept getting worse. When I was young, I used to go to a chiropractor, and it really helped. It’d been a few years before I had seen a chiropractor so I wanted to find another person I could trust with my health.
I used to get numbness in my arms, chest pain, kidney pain, and pain starting from my neck and traveling down to my lower back. After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments I have noticed I no longer have those pains and I have more energy for my busy schedule.
What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is I felt welcome as soon as I walked through the door. They made it really affordable, since I am a student and my insurance doesn’t cover chiropractic care. Don’t let anything stop you from getting healthy!
Range Of Motion Back!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because I had not improved after seeing another chiropractor but my sister had come to Revive Family Chiropractic along with her children and saw immediate results. After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments the changes I have noticed are I now have total range of motion back in my neck. After catching the stomach bug I came in the same day to get adjusted and had immediate relief. What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is that Dr. Alex and the staff really work to understand you as an individual and treat you as family! Thank you!
Reaching Health Goals!
I first started coming to Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic for many different reasons. I was suffering from mid and low back pain; severe pain in my hips; and chronic pain in my left ankle due to a previous fracture. After receiving my specific scientific chiropractic adjustments the pain in my hips and ankle have decreased SIGNIFICANTLY, to the point of non-existence! My posture has improved, which has been very poor for many, many years. The pain in my mid and low back has improved from severe pain everyday to experiencing slight pain only once a week! What I want to tell others about Revive Family Chiropractic is Dr. Alex is truly concerned about helping you on your road to a better life! He takes time to listen to your health goals and helps you develop a plan of action to reach those goals! Not only is Dr. Alex great, but his team is just as wonderful! Each team member is very welcoming!
Optimal Health is the Goal!
I first started coming to see Dr. Alex at Revive Family Chiropractic because my neck and low back were bothering me. I was also suffering from headaches about 2-3 times each week! After just 2 months of adjustments my back and neck pain are much better! My headaches and sinus pain are significantly decreased. I was also dealing with some digestive issues which are starting to go away as well! I want others to know that Dr. Alex’s goal is you get you to optimal health! They do focused adjustments and with only adjust what is truly needed!
There Is A Better Way To Health!
When I started my treatment with Dr. Alex, my blood pressure was 180/130, and I was on seven different medications to control it. After coming under specific, scientific chiropractic care, Dr. Alex has helped me reduce my blood pressure to 118/84. This is SO incredible, because I knew there had to be a better way. I was not prepared, nor did my body want to consume seven different kinds of medication. Now, not only has my blood pressure decreased, I am nearly off my medication, too!
I am thankful to share my testimony, because I believe that knowledge is power. I would love for everyone to know about my involvement with specific scientific chiropractic care so they can know there is a cure without medication. I am so grateful to know that I don’t have to worry about having high blood pressure now, and most importantly not putting medication in my body.
