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 was having such terrible pain in my shoulder I could hardly raise my arm, I couldn’t get myself out of bed and was having a hard time sleeping more than a couple hours at a time that I thought I had torn something like my rotator cuff. Started going to Clear Connections Chiropractic and feel so much better under their care plan. It’s hard to get to the office regularly but I know the weeks I can stick to it the better I feel and healthier I am. Office staff are so supportive and helpful with whatever you need. Loved the thermal scan vs X-ray and holistic approach they take to caring for the whole body not just the immediate symptoms. I’m a true believer in chiropractor care and Clear Connections Chiropractic is a great group/community here in West Michigan.

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.

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 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!
- 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.

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!

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!!!!
- 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.
