In addition, during times of chronic dehydration, the body will attempt to conserve water by preventing unnecessary water loss. A large amount of water is normally lost from the lungs as water vapor through expired air. Histamine, which also controls bronchial muscle contractions, may attempt to restrict water loss through expiration by constricting the bronchial… Read More »
Many years ago, an Iranian doctor named Dr. Batmanghelidj, reported on the occurrence of asthma and allergies with states of chronic dehydration. Although the connection was plausible; the science had not been done to back up this claim. Today, more science has been conducted to look at this phenomenon and the relationship seems valid. Both… Read More »

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.

These guys are AMAZING!!!! I can honestly say that I feel 100% better after only the first month. I could tell a big difference in how I felt after the first couple of sessions. I now have more energy. I am able to stand for 4+ hours at a concert without my back hurting and feeling tired. I love the fact that they take the time to explain everything - for example, how the spine being out of alignment affects the rest of the body. They also gave me the information I needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Once again, these guys are AMAZING!!!

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 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.

I have been receiving care at clear connections for about a month and a half now. It has been an amazing experience!! I love how family friendly their practice is. All staff take the time to get to know you on a first name basis as well as important parts about your life. Every time I walk in, I feel welcomed by all. On top of that, the care that I have received has helped me tremendously! I have begun feeling better physically and mentally. I am excited to continue my care here, as I know they will continue to help my body be the best it can be.

So happy I chose Clear Connections when searching for a chiropractor. This was my first experience with chiropractic care, and the entire staff made me feel well educated and happy to have finally taken the leap. Dr. Sean and Dr. Krystal both do outstanding work each time I come in, and within a month I'm feeling better than ever! If you're looking for a friendly, positive and impactful chiropractic office and staff, I highly recommend Clear Connections!

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!!!!
- Ann Post
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!
- Tonya Klein
Dr.Sean and Dr.Krystal are amazing! Once my care plan was set we started treatments and I was feeling working results very soon after. Stick to your care plan...this team will not fail you! I love the entire team and how helpful they are, always friendly and informative.
- 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.
