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!

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.

This is my 3rd chiropractor I've been to and I will say hands down this is the best so far! Clear Connections staff is unlike anything I've experienced... SO nice, SO happy, SO uplifting.. they really have their customer service down and its refreshing to be around.They're knowledge and techniques are miles ahead of the others I've tried. They are very up to date and I love that they focus on the nervous system. No other practice has even brought up the nervous system.. which blows my mind now because it controls everything!I am on my 6th week of treatment and already having been reaping the benefits since week 3. My headaches have decreased, my insomnia has almost been non existent, and my overall pain in my body has improved so much. It's so weird to me to not be experiencing all the pain I once was and I'm so freaking happy!! I can't wait to keep going and keep seeing more and more benefits.Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the staff! You guys are awesome.

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.

Clear connections chiropractic has been an amazing place for me. Dr.Sean came to my place of work for a lunch and learn. Anybody who buys me lunch can convince me to do anything. I'm a boxer so I came with alot of neck stiffness, and a little in my lower back. Dr.Sean, and Dr.Krystal are very friendly, positive, and motivated to making you feel you're best! The stiffness in my neck and back have decreased greatly.Thanks clear connections for all your work!

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 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!!!!

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!

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.

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.
