Success Stories




I have spent several years with chronic lower back pain along with severe jaw pain resulting from rear-end collisions and a fall.

I have tried prescription painkillers, physiotherapy, massage therapy, acupuncture, cupping, IMS treatments and was referred to a dental specialist for a mouth guard all with little or no long-term results. I would feel good for a day or two sometimes only hours but it never lasted.

I met Dr. Kim Crickmay from Restoration Chiropractic at a trade event in St. Albert, where she took a picture of me to access my posture. I received her assessment through email with a follow up call to book a consultation to discuss my results and get full spinal x-rays.

The treatment schedule set out for me was going to take time and commitment in order for my body to get healthy. In the first couple of months my treatments were 4 times per week. I see Dr. Kim for adjustments 3 times per week with amazing results and I am only part way through the program set out for me.

Today through progressive treatments my jaw is no longer sore. I rarely sleep with my mouth guard and the simple task of opening and closing my mouth is reasonably pain free. The healing process on my back has just started and already I feel better. The constant pain has diminished significantly I have much better mobility with far less discomfort.

With Dr. Kim Crickmay's help I am getting my life back and starting to enjoy the activities I once gave up.

Thank you Dr. Kim.

PS. The staff of Restoration Chiropractic are the best; always a smile and cheerful greeting.
