I am a trauma surgical nurse and on a daily basis I push/pull objects up to 350 lbs, lift heavy objects, and walk on average 6 miles in an 8 hour span. Needless to say my work is very tough on my body. When I first came to Freedom, I was suffering from daily headaches- for which I took Tylenol sometimes twice a day for constant low back pain and on occasion sciatic nerve pain. I was hurting a lot.
I had searched for chiropractic care and read reviews on Freedom and Dr. Sara- it all sounded good, so I decided to see what they offered. I was happy to learn there would be no cracking of my spine, no popping my neck- like traditional chiropractic care I have previously received. Dr. Sara uses a more gentle torque release technique that I was very interested in! I was blown away and so blessed by the staff and Dr. Sara. They are all so sincere and caring- you know they are invested in your
Within 6 weeks or less of adjustments with Dr. Sara I was able to stop taking the massive amount of Tylenol, which is so awful for many of your body systems. My headaches are very infrequent, my low back pain 90% gone and my sciatic pain nonexistent! I am so excited to be free from pain. I can go home from work everyday- not nearly in tears because my job is so hard on my body. Such a freeing feeling!
My husband and daughter, age 4, also get regular adjustments. My daughter used to suffer from constipation. That is no longer an issue for us after seeing Dr. Sara!
Thank you to Dr. Sara and the staff for helping my family feel better and free from pain. We love you!
I always thought chiropractic care was for people with back problems and doctors popping/cracking your bones. But it wasn’t until a Coffee with the Doc with Dr. Sara at my workplace, that I realized chiropractic care is much more than that. From that initial meeting I could see how genuinely Dr. Sara cares for people’s health. In a world filled with prescriptions and antibiotics, Dr. Sara realizes the importance of self-health and letting our bodies do what they were made for. I’ve been able to experience that self-health begins with chiropractic care.
I lived in Knoxville my whole life and have always struggled with allergies, asthma and breathing problems. I’m always prepared for a sinus infection with every changing season. Since I’ve started seeing Dr. Sara I haven’t had any sinus problems whatsoever. My sinuses usually led to headaches which have completely gone away as well. When starting at Freedom I had a nervous system scan which showed lots of tension within my spine. After only a month of adjustments, my scans showed significant change. I was truly amazed to see the difference that chiropractic care is making in my life.
When I was 10 years old (5th grade), I began to have some strange health symptoms. I started having immense pain in my abdomen, would run fevers, miss school and had no appetite. One of the scariest moments was when I saw the toilet filled with blood. At that point, a various amount of tests were completed, and the doctors diagnosed with me Ulcerative Colitis. The course of treatment followed with a multitude of medication and homeopathic remedies but they did nothing for my symptoms.
By the time I was 11, I had multiple colonoscopies, I was poked and prodded, I had adverse reactions to medications and was in and out of the hospital for three months. My symptoms proceeded with no change and by the time my hemoglobin got to a 6, the doctors said I had no other choice but to remove my large intestine. October 1995, I had a complete resection of my large bowel with a temporary ileostomy bag for 6 months. April 1996, I had another surgery to re-connect my small intestine to a J-pouch that was created to serve as my large intestine. This procedure and the medication I was supposed to take the rest of my life was meant to keep me healthy and make sure I never had a problem again.
November 2002, I had just signed a D2 basketball scholarship and a few short weeks later I started having some weird symptoms. Due to an infection in my body that started from my mouth and went all the way down to my legs, I was admitted into the hospital. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. I had 3 different surgeries and spent 15 days in the hospital over Christmas. I left the hospital with more medications, another surgery scheduled and a new diagnosis.
I graduated high school and moved to South Carolina to play basketball. While trying to minimize the symptoms, I was prescribed with Remicade, an IV transfusion similar to Humira, every 4-8 weeks. I did this for 6 years. I thought I was healthy because my symptoms were
minimal, but in reality I wasn’t healthy at all and wasn’t functioning to my potential. When thinking about what career I wanted to pursue, I had experienced chiropractic care enough to know that it made me feel better, so that was the direction I went.
I ended up at Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, IA. In my first trimester, I went to a speaker and heard a message about health and healing from above, down, inside and out. I heard about our bodies potential to heal and that optimal health is possible. I remember being extremely excited but also angry because if all of this was true, why hadn’t I heard about this before now. At this point, I thought I was having another relapse with Crohn’s, so I took the initiative to take steps towards my health. I started receiving neurologically based corrective chiropractic care in October 2007. In February 2008, I was able to get off of every medication that I was currently taking and my body started functioning in ways that I had only hoped for. Fast forward to the present, I have not had one symptom in respect to any inflammatory bowel disease, have not had to take any medication since (even over the counter medication), and I’ve functioned better than I could have imagined.
At six weeks old, Ava’s parents brought her to Freedom Chiropractic for infant reflux and colic. She was constantly crying and irritable due to gas and little sleep. Her parents described her situation as severe because she hardly slept and cried all the time. As first time parents, Alison and Brad were also suffering with lack of sleep and much concern for their baby girl. Ava’s pediatrician prescribed gas medications. Neither Brad nor Alison had been to a principled chiropractor before, however, they had a niece who had received excellent results with her infant reflux through principled chiropractic care. Ava’s Mom and Dad say, “Within a week, Ava was sleeping through the night. We now have a happy child. It feels like we have a new baby. Everyone at Freedom Chiropractic is so nice and welcoming. We have never been to an office that is so friendly and caring.” With Ava’s healing and then learning more about principled chiropractic care, Alison and Brad decided to have their nervous systems and spines evaluated. Now the entire family enjoys the benefits of corrective chiropractic care. Alison and Brad would like to tell all parents, “If you have a baby, have he or she checked by a principled chiropractor as soon as possible” a baby, have he or she checked by a principled chiropractor as soon as possible”

I started receiving chiropractic care at Freedom in 2017.I am thankful for each adjustmentI have received! This was especially true after I found outI was pregnant in December of 2018. After doing research about all things pregnancy and birth,I knew thatI would remain under care throughout because of the benefits and testimonials I had found during my research. Each week I knew my body was getting a boost to the immune system and keeping my growing baby boy and I healthy!
As my belly grew, I began to really look forward to my adjustments. Experiencing the normal pains of growing a baby were starting to become more pronounced. Sore hips, low back pain, headaches...after each adjustment I felt a noticeable improvement and know that the severity of these growing pains were manageable because of chiropractic care!
My due date began to quickly approach and baby boy was comfortable and slow to turn. Under the advice of Dr. Sara,I began coming in twice a week.He turned shortly after, and I know the adjustments helped prepare not only my body but his too.
I was fortunate to have a very healthy pregnancy and I attribute a great deal of this to chiropractic care. I have also experienced the benefits of getting adjusted just days after giving birth, with swift healing and more energy to take care of my son.I am so grateful to have had Freedom during pregnancy and continuing into postpartum life and beyond!
I’m the kind of person that needs to understand the end result before I take the first three steps. So, to say I was critical of chiropractic would be a terrible understatement. I am trained in physical therapy: therapists believe that strengthening the right set of muscles will bring the body back into balance while most chiropractic practitioners believe the alignment of the bones is most important. I sought help because I could no longer run, step off a curb without pain or put on my own pants. I was 42, and becoming HELPLESS. I was angry, because I had already undergone a year’s worth of manual chiropractic treatments, only to rebound
Helplessness is what brought me to Dr. Sara and torque release technique. I remember vividly the bitterness and frustration as I sat through the initial meetings and listened to the same promises. I cried in the office, simply because I felt like I had no other choice but to risk the treatment that might leave me even worse off. Physical therapy wasn’t working, eating right and exercise and a very expensive personal trainer didn’t help, and the neurologist that I visited could only tell me that it was not being caused by a brain tumor. He called it “essential tremors”. I was 42, my leg was swollen, my left foot was flopping, and my body shook with the slightest exertion.
My first moment of comfort came when Dr. Sara help me understand that TRT was “having a conversation with your nervous system” and it was telling her what needed the adjustments most. Now, many weeks later, I was confirmed again by coming in with a very specific injury, and I knew which nerve was causing the weakness. (I wasn’t able to lift my left arm over my head, and had electric pangs searing down the back of my arm.) I didn’t say a word to Dr. Sara as she had her “conversation”, and I waited as she tested each of the typical places she had adjusted in my previous sessions. She had to go all the way up the line of vertebrae, but the issue became perfectly clear, and she made three adjustments surrounding the exact vertebrae that the nerve passes through.
Now I know that I will be maintaining TRT for the rest of my life. I’m getting back to all of the things I used to love: trail running, biking and climbing. The tremors have disappeared, the swelling is gone, I am getting stronger, and I have 80% less of that familiar low back pain. My sacroiliac joint does not come dislodged anymore. Friends and family have noticed an enormous difference in my mood, and my excitement for life has become palpable again.
I know that we are masterfully created, and I know that the body has everything that it needs to heal itself. I’m eternally grateful that I found a place where they can give me my life back!
My daughter, Emily, has struggled with ear issues since birth. Even after having tubes placed, she was still being treated for ear infections several times per year and fluids were never able to drain normally from her ears. This persistent problem had led to speech delays along with other developmental issues and the only treatment her pediatrician was offering was daily allergy medications (she only has mild seasonal allergies in the fall).
I wasn’t interested in just managing her symptoms any more, I wanted to find a solution. Enter Freedom Chiropractic! They had a booth set up at an event at my son’s school, and in big bold letters “ear infections” was listed on a sign as one of the many things they could help treat. I took that as my sign that this was something I needed check out. Within a week, Emily had her first adjustment and was finally on a path towards healing. Dr. Sara was the first to offer us a real solution to my daughter’s 4 years of ear issues, and I am so happy to report that Emily has gone a whole year without any ear infections! We are so thankful for Dr. Sara and her amazing team!
Adam, Laura, Eden, and Elijah were recommended to Freedom by mutual friends of the Freedom team. Their family had been to other chiropractors before but were unfamiliar and skeptical about TRT as they were used to temporary relief from manual adjustments. Adam suffered from constant tightness in his upper and lower back for as long as he could remember. He was always in pain, had limited mobility, and occasionally it would give him crippling migraines.
Laura was in pain overall from being a busy mom to two kids and the pain was so bad that it was limiting her ability to take care of her children. As a toddler Elijah had frequent ear infections and since birth Eden, being 1 month early, was not meeting her growth and development goals. We are happy to report that after being under care for a year and a half their family has seen amazing change! Adam rarely experiences low back pain and his migraines are down from 3-4 times a year to only having 1 since starting care at Freedom and he was pleasantly surprised that his allergies have been less severe and he is sleeping better. He states, “I love receiving care here. I know that every experience, regardless of how busy Freedom is, will be warm and friendly. They are always encouraging me with great smiles and I would (and have) recommend Freedom to anyone seeking chiropractic care!” Laura is now able to move all day long and take care of her kids without debilitating pain, she has less headaches, she is rarely sick now, and has been able to reduce the amount of pain relievers she was taking. As Laura recounts “I’ve been to multiple chiropractors in the past and have never felt lasting relief, only temporary relief. I’ve been at Freedom more than a year now and feel lasting relief from pain!” Not only have Mom and Dad experienced Freedom in their health but Elijah has not had an ear infection since he started care and we are so excited to say that Eden is meeting all of her growth goals now!
