“I can’t say enough great things about this wonderful place. The minute you walk in the door your greeted by name immediately and placed in the room of your choice. Both Dr. Andrea and Dr. Kristi are the most kind hearted individuals that understand your frustrations especially with your child(ren). My daughter has sensory processing disorder and both individuals have reassured me that they are here to listen and help. Since being seen by Dr. Kristi and Dr. Andrea my daughter has been making great strides. I can’t wait to see what the future holds in getting chiropractic care for my daughter. Keep up the great work River Shores!!!
chiropractic care and addMadilyn was always a very bright little girl. She began reading at age four and a half or five. When kindergarten started, Madilyn really struggled to progress in reading and math. Her penmanship was truly horrible. Throughout kindergarten and first grade, her classmates began to pull away from her. It was suggested that she may have ADD. We had her tested by a child psychologist and it was determined that she does not. While we were very happy to hear that, my husband and I had no idea how to help Madilyn. Through word of mouth, it was suggested that we try chiropractic care and vision therapy. We learned that Madilyn has severe spinal subluxations and a visual impairment.We began chiropractic care at River Shores in September and vision therapy in October/November. I am so happy to report, she is a different child!! Madilyn has really progressed in reading and her penmanship is awesome. Madilyn went from barely functioning, to learning and enjoying school! The best part is that she is much more confident in herself and truly feels good about who she is.Madilyn loves going to get her adjustments. She loves visiting with the staff and playing with the toys. We love that River Shores is so very family oriented.I will be honest and say that I am probably the worst Mom in terms of being worried about this little girl. Dr. Andrea has been very encouraging to me and extremely patient with me. She’s taken extra time to listen and speak with me about my concerns; for that, I am very grateful. Our family is committed to holistic care. River Shores has been the perfect fit for us and a true blessing in our lives!

I was introduced to River Shores Chiropractic through a wellness fair we had at my work. I admittedly had thought about seeing a chiropractor but was too stubborn to go. I was feeling a lot of back and neck pain for the longest time and I had recently been diagnosed with ADHD. The medication I was taking was having a big effect on my life and I wanted to stop taking it and find a different approach to feel better naturally. At the wellness fair I decided to have a nervous system scan just to see what my scan would read considering how bad I was feeling. It ended up being a wakeup call for me. Dr. Andrea suggested that I needed to come in and set up an appointment. I did, and it was a great decision.River Shores Chiropractic has improved my life. Chiropractic care has helped me tremendously with my neck and back pain but I was also able to wean myself off of my ADHD medication. I am now able to control my focus naturally and feel better about life which makes the time with my daughter much more enjoyable. Before I came to River Shores I was in a dark place, I was not enjoying life the way I should be and also not being a father the way I wanted to be. So I couldn’t be happier knowing I listened to Dr. Andrea to come in and start getting adjusted. It has changed my life and changed me as a person. I can see it and it’s great to know my family can see it too. I would recommend River Shores Chiropractic to anyone. Dr. Andrea is a wonderful person and I couldn’t be more grateful for what she has done. She has worked with me and helped me get back to my normal self. I’m enjoying life a lot better than before!Chiropractic care makes you feel better in every aspect of life, literally every aspect. Dr. Andrea can change your life and River Shores Chiropractic is an amazing place to go. They have an amazing staff and family environment. I couldn’t be happier with where I am in life right now. Thanks River Shores Chiropractic!

ADD-testimonial“Our son’s birthing process was traumatic. The cord was wrapped around his neck; heart rate dropped dramatically, suctioned him out, and ended up with a broken collar bone. Around the age of five he was diagnosed with ADHD and age six with high functioning Autism. The Doctor suggested medication to help him concentrate at school. For several years he has been on Adderall. He functioned better with his studies but it seemed like he “just wasn’t in there” a lot of the times. His meds also enhanced the Autism (noises, bright lights, etc.). Needless to say we have had a tough couple of years.Our neighbors also have a child on the spectrum and they invited us to an Autism support group. That night we met Dr. Krysti Wick as she was the presenter at the support group. My husband and I know this was not a coincidence. Krysti was meant to come into our lives for a reason!! In January of 2014 our son started chiropractic care and as of June he was med free. With chiropractic care and some in home therapy he is doing great! There is so much life in his eyes. He laughs so much more, plays with his toys, very social, and eats like crazy (was suffering from a lack of appetite as a side effect of his meds). Thank you Dr. Krysti for coming into our lives. You’ve made a world of difference.”
I would like to tell you a little about my son. He started having issues in school with teachers bullying not paying attention. He was put on ADHD meds when he was in 3rd grade. We kept trying different medications because nothing seemed to help and he was slowly but steadily getting worse. Crying fits and acting out in class (anxiety). We took him off all meds at the beginning of summer 2013 and seemed to calm down a little.Although at the beginning of the next school year, it started again, and was substantially worse. Panic attacks, anxiety over teachers and students with tantrums. He started seeing a therapist, and she was so concerned she met with him weekly at school. But with very little success and by January the panic attacks we so severe I had to pull him out of school and home school him the remainder of the year. Subsequently I had to quit my job. We went to a psychiatrist who prescribed anti-anxiety drugs but that seemed to add depression into the mix of things. Migraines stomach aches, anxiety with panic attacks. We seemed to stumble along but he wasn’t getting better. We couldn’t take him to unfamiliar places without a scene.In May a friend took me to a seminar Dr. Krysti was doing. I didn’t know much about it and just that it was dealing with anxiety, autism, and such things, When I learned that it had to do with chiropractic care, believe me, I was extremely skeptical. I truly believed that chiropractic can help with back and neck issues but anxiety and autism??!!I thought it was a stretch but I listened and asked questions and decided to give it a shot. Nothing else seemed to be making a difference. After steady care from Dr. Krysti for the last 3 months, I am ecstatic to share how different my son is. Loving, happy, silly, plays outside making new friends trying sports again. Headaches and stomach aches are gone. I have my son back!!! Thank you Dr. Krysti for that.

“Chiropractic is amazing! Just about a month ago I mentioned to Dr. Wick that my daughter was having trouble focusing at home. Also, her teacher had called me and said that she was quite a bit behind in school. Immediately Dr. Wick took action, suggesting a thermal scan and EMG, which we did and found some big problem areas. Since then Dr. Wick has been adjusting her more frequently. Over the past few weeks I have noticed a change in her. Then this week I received another call from her teacher saying that she has seen HUGE progress in my daughter in the last couple weeks both academically and socially. Thank you Dr. Wick for being passionately invested in your patients! Looking forward to continued progress!!!!
