Sam entered auto accident care at FCCO. She was experiencing pain and found it uncomfortable to be at her work computer, as if she was carrying a weight on her shoulders. Numbness around parts of the face was also an issue. Shortly after the accident, her planned trip overseas was dampened by poor sleep, dizziness, concussion-feeling, foggy and feeling irritable. After dedicating time to many chiropractic and massage treatments, Sam says she headaches are gone, and she feels energized after massage. Numbness is also much less frequent. And her pain dropped significantly. She continues with PT and stretches on her own to promote the best in her health and daily activities.
Earlier this year, I had an accident and hurt my shoulder. Was sitting in the passenger seat and leaning over when we got in the accident so the seat belt stopped my shoulder. I didn’t realize I had gotten hurt that bad. I couldn’t even reach behind my back or over my head to do my hair. Started seeing Dr. Venekamp for treatments and doing massage therapy. I noticed my range of motion increasing first, and then it wasn’t as sore. Also, the more massages I got, the better it got. I can reach way up and behind my back. I’m walking without pain; I can pretty much to anything I want without pain. I want to do some hiking with my niece and walking some more. And more traveling, photography.
Kirk & Esther
We've been under chiropractic care for 20+ years, since about ’96 when Dr. Kenna Venekamp was in Hot Springs, SD. (Esther): while playing baseball, my knee buckled. I saw Dr. Kenna who referred me to an Orthopedic Dr. for a torn ACL. Then both our kids started going to Dr. Kenna too. (Kirk): I was in construction and just so much stress on the body from that work and then falling off a roof. Dr. Kenna fixed my shoulder- both of them. (Esther): After Kenna left Hot Springs, Kirk did try other Chiro care but got to where he almost couldn’t walk because they couldn’t adjust his hips like Dr. Kenna (Kirk) We decided to travel to Fort Collins to see Dr. Kenna again. If I hadn’t come, I would be disabled by now. (Esther): if he hadn’t been adjusted, Kirk would have had to have surgery and more than likely wouldn’t be working today. We can’t say enough praise of Kenna saving our health. We’d like him to come to Hot Springs again for a couple days every so often.
