Clear Connections Chiropractic has been an incredible help for my chronic back issues. The many years of my constant, lower back pain has been greatly reduced and I am finally seeing true healing, through the wonderful care and help of both Drs. Sean and Crystal! The natural healing therapies with which they treat their patients with, has been the best medial therapy, by avoiding both added medicines or surgery! Unlike visiting other doctors or dentists, I actually look so forward to each of my visits, knowing the I am going to ALWAYS walk out from my appointment, feeling that much better than before I arrived for my appt.! Thank you both!
- Amanda Fleming
The whole team at Clear Connections is super helpful and professional. They go above and beyond in explaining why they do what they do and how it is beneficial for everyone. I look forward to going to all my appointments and would recommend this practice to anyone looking to improve their life and body.

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!
- Debbie Haas
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!!

I had suffered a 70mph car accident that involved a role over. I was fortunately unhurt other than a pain in my shoulder. This progressed into severe backspasms that prevented me from even resting.I came in and was greeted with huge smiles, and felt immediately comfortable and trusting of everyone that works there. I felt they really connected with me and provided all the information up front. Very honest, very professional, but welcoming and warm. They are very affordable and definitely have a overall health goal orientation. Both Dr. Sean and Dr. Krystal take very detailed notes and always are concerned with my personal progress. Would recommend, especially if you’re looking to get the whole family in!Long story short, I’m now “back” to normal and feel more aligned than before.

Clear Connections Chiropractic is a very friendly and welcoming place, from the receptionists to the chiropractors they are nothing but friendly people. The chiropractors are very knowledgeable and do a great job. I've been a member since February 2018 but just in that short amount of time I've already noticed a difference. The atmosphere is very calming, peaceful, and relaxing. Overall a great experience.

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!!!!

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!

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%!

The staff is very helpful and kind. The evening hours are great for people who work day shifts, they are very flexible. The treatment I have received so far has been great, I work a desk job so my body does get pretty stiff, but the team at Clear Connections has been great at getting me treatment to help alleviate that stiffness to help my body feel less tense. Also they do a great job of explaining the treatment and giving you exercises to do on your own to continue to help you body improve.
