Chiropractic Colorado Springs CO Rebecca Curtis Testimonial

"I had worked with Dr. Wood and sometimes Dr. Leahy since the 90's when Champion Health Associates held a running clinic and video taped my running. I was knocking my knees while running! So I began my visits to Dr. Wood to help me run straight! Champion Health Associates is the 'birth place" of Active Release Technique (ART) known and practiced worldwide. It is the gold standard of soft tissue care.

I am aware that professional athletes from all types of sports and from all over the globe travel to Champion Health Assoc. for ART treatments to maintain peak performance. How fortunate for me that I live here and can avail my self of these treatments! I have continued to see Dr. Wood for ART and Chiropractic treatments since that first visit in the 90s.

Every runner knows that qualifying for the Boston Marathon is quite a feat-it requires tremendous hard work, dedication, and talent. When I qualified for the Boston Marathon, I was ecstatic! However, I qualified in the fall of 2016 after the cut-off to run in 2017. Therefore, I had to wait until 2018 to apply to run. (Had my fingers crossed that they would allow me to run-they did!) In the meantime, I had to keep my training up at a rigorous level to enable me to meet this goal 2 years later. The worst part of training for the Boston Marathon for me was doing the training during the winter months in Colorado. I had never trained for a marathon during winter, only the summer and fall months. (Winter was my "down time")

Sadly, with my demanding training schedule and training in the winter I acquired overuse injuries. The more I trained, the tighter & painful my hammies and glutes got. I had experienced hamstring strains in the past and did not want that to happen, and I was, also, experiencing some hip rotator issues. Therefore, as part of my training regimen, I incorporated regular visits to Dr Wood at Champion Health Assoc. Through weekly sessions with Dr. Wood, my hip, buttock, and hamstring issues were resolved. I was, obviously, continuing to train, so I did a lot of foam rolling and icing in-between my therapy visits to Dr. Wood!

And I did finish The Boston Marathon. It was the year of the rain and ice storm. My legs and hands were frozen at the end, so my finish line photo looks like I was trying to fly!

Here is the final key to all my therapy sessions with Dr. Wood: I had no issues the next day walking around Boston! Or going up and down stairs! Amazing!

I went on to run the Original Athens Marathon in Greece in November the same year. Of course, I was seeing Dr. Wood after Boston and in the build-up to Athens and I continue to see him regularly."

"There are not enough words to express how grateful I am to have found Dr. Spaur and to be one of his patients.

I first saw Dr. Spaur during the volleyball season for shoulder pain and shin splints. I was referred to him because regular physical therapy was not helping me.

Dr. Spaur used Active Release Techniques (ART) and chiropractic techniques to quickly get me back on the court for a successful season. My biggest physical hurdle was an injury I received transitioning from volleyball to basketball. The podiatrist thought I had a stress fracture and put me in a walking boot for several weeks. However, my foot was not getting any better, and there wasn’t any sign of a stress fracture. So, I went to Dr. Spaur to see if he could help relieve the pain. He pinpointed ligament and tendon issues and, by using ART, was able to alleviate my pain. I was cleared to play again within the week.

Over the course of the year, I knew I could trust Dr. Spaur to help me recover quickly from every new injury, and my list was long: jammed fingers, shin splints, shoulder pain, foot and ankle injuries, and a concussion. I would like to thank Dr. Spaur for being incredibly supportive of me in all my sports, offering to be available during my state competitions, and helping me stay healthy to compete in each new athletic season."

"After a crushing injury to my ankle seven years ago, I experienced pain and loss of mobility that I thought would never go away. As an active duty Army officer training for Ranger school, this injury was causing further damage and pain in my knees, hips, and back. I decided to try ART and after the first session, I knew that this was the "magic bullet" I had been looking for. My ankle, knees, hips, and back haven't felt this good since before the injury and I am running faster and farther than I ever have before. Thank you, Dr. Wood and Kris!"

"I didn't think I would be able to run - and running makes me so happy. Last month, I ran a half-marathon in under 2 hours – a personal best. It was a great feeling to race, and I wanted to say thank you for getting me to a place where that was possible!"

- Danika H.

"There are no words to explain how grateful we are for all the special care you have given us during this time. I know you are aware how much of an impact you make in people's lives, but you made such a difference for me over the last nine months. We are truly blessed. Thank you again!"

- Rachel

"I just want to say thank you for everything! Without you, I don't know if I would've been able to make it through high school. You fixed my back, neck and referred me to Dr. Saxerud when we didn't know why I had constant headaches. Thank you for not settling for 'good enough' with me.

Thank you for walking me through this craziness! You're basically family now!"

- Jackie

"After 4 sessions {with Dr. Cuiffo} I finally got 6 full hours of sleep. That hasn't happened in over 6 months!"

- Justin H.

"From ankle pain to back pain, Dr. Spaur has made it possible for me to dance pain free. The combination of ART and chiropractic work helps me work on newer, more difficult skills in the dance studio without having to worry about a muscle or a joint causing me discomfort."

"My 20-month-old daughter had chronic ear infections and fluid retention. She was going to need tubes, but after one visit with Dr. Drew the fluid is gone and she won't need surgery!"

"Dr. Spaur and Kris Gieske helped heal and fix several injuries I've had for years. I tried numerous chiropractors, massage, stem cells, and other treatments. Dr. Spaur released my shoulder and hip and got me to a place of being about 75% better. Dr. Spaur then had me see Kris to help with breaking the pain patterns. This got me to almost 100% better within two months. At this point, I just need more time to exercise and rebuild strength and continue to break the old pain pattern movements. 10/10 highly recommend it. I've already sent numerous people including my wife who has had shoulder pain for years. Along with my daughter who injured her foot from ballet. Three treatments from Dr. Spaur and she was better."
