Oral bisphosphonate osteoporosis drugs such as Actonel, Boniva and Fosamax, are associated with a two-fold increased risk of esophageal cancer. Research also shows that, over time, these kinds of drugs will actually worsen your condition, because all you’re doing is fooling your body into producing denser but weaker, more brittle bone. This may sound like… Read More »
Osteoporosis is a common problem, affecting an estimated 1 in 10 women worldwide at the age of 60. By the time a woman reaches the age of 80, she has a 2-in-5 chance of developing osteoporosis.

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.

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.

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 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 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!
- 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 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%!

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.
