I feel way better and everyone there is extremely friendly. I would totally recommend to anyone, even if they don’t have back issues, it’s always good to see a chiropractor!

I absolutely love coming for my weekly adjustment! About day five I really start to get uncomfortable in my lower back area and know that relief is on the horizon. As soon as I sit up from the table after a ‘tune-up’, it’s like I’m a whole new person again! I can’t imagine not having chiropractic care in my life!

One of the best investments you can do to yourself. Every customer wants a solution, great customer service, and flexibility when needed. You have all three there. The staff is amazing. The results start coming sooner than you expect. When I started there my neck was constantly in pain, my upper back, digestion issues, constant migraines, just a mess. In the beginning you wonder how a couple of minutes a week could resolve years of issues. Migraines are gone, neck pain gone, upper back pain gone, digestion way better (I am also changing my lifestyle), sleeping much better, feeling much better in general. I now have more energy and even started to go to the gym again. Just get up and go there. Your body will thank you.

I absolutely LOVE coming into get my weekly adjustment!!! Due to the nature of my job, I'm usually ready to 'get fixed' by day 5....but have to wait until day 7. The relief I feel in my lower back after an adjustment is immediate!!!!! It feels good knowing that I'm taking care of myself by coming in weekly. After all, if ANYTHING is askew, if can be ADJUSTED!!!!

Dr. Sean, Dr. Krystal, and the rest of the Clear Chiro team have always made me feel welcome and part of the family. I started going when I was having lots of upper back discomfort and after my first visit I already felt 10x better. I've been going consistently now to keep my whole body working as it should. Also, the massage therapists are out of this world! Always leave there feeling relaxed and refreshed. I recommend Clear Chiro 110%!

It's been great getting Chiropractic care from Krystal and Sean. They have intuition, knowledge and compassion for days. Just last week, I went in- not realizing how awful I was feeling, got adjusted and as I stood up, loads of pressure dropped off my shoulders, the headache was gone and i could think again. I've come in multiple times which have gone like this: We say hello, I don't tell Sean i'm having pain... (enter location here), Sean touches my feet and ankles, pops a spot on my back, adjusts my neck here and there and bam! The pain is gone- like a flock of geese in autumn.Go, see (& feel) for yourself!

I was always reluctant to try chiropractic care but after months of suffering low back pain and sciatica I was desperate for relief that i wasnt getting from thr pain pills and physical therapy my Dr. prescribed. Clear Connections has been a very positive experience so far. I no longer have the severe level of pain I was in, it has improved dramatically. I also sleep better. The staff is super friendly. Sean & Krystal are great, they genuniely care about all their patients well being. Highly recommend!

I love Clear Connections Chiropractic! I cannot say enough wonderful things about what they have done for me. I feel so much better and am able to move so much easier pain free. I am always willing to give a shout out about how AWESOME this team is to have on your side!!
- Elizabeth DeByle
So glad to be back on track with this team! They are friendly, helpful and a great encouragement to be the best me I can be. Getting regular adjustments and massages has helped my back, shoulder and knee pain go from a daily uncomfortable irritant to being mostly pain free! The office hours also make it easy to get an appointment either on my lunch hour or after work.
