Cindy had previously worked in an office for 36 years and sat in a chair for about 95% of that time. Her back felt so compressed and she experienced pain while sitting, standing, and sleeping.

"Dr. Tony thoroughly explained my x-rays and exam to me so that we could develop a comprehensive path to help me with my problems and pain." "Dr. Tony explained every adjustment, what he was doing, and how it will help with a particular problem that is causing the pain."

"We had just moved into the Elkhorn area and were looking for a new family chiropractor to care for us and our six children. Michelle and I both have neck and low back problems. Michelle had been in a car crash as a teenager and i had done damage to my spine over years of playing sports." Before chiropractic, Tim was on muscle relaxers for a year and using every over the counter product to deal with the pain. Michelle had frequent headaches and the scar tissue in her shoulder from the accident often prevented her from lifting things, especially the kids. Tim rarely got more than 4 hours of sleep at night without waking up in great pain. "we had a wonderful chiropractor in Illinois and moving to Elkhorn caused us to have to look for another. we are so glad we found apex and Dr. Tony. the regular adjustments and personal care have continued to allow us the mobility, sleep, and health we have been blessed to experience. also, knowing our children are getting excellent health care at a young age is such a great blessing"
Marie constantly experienced back, hip, shoulder & left knee pain. These issues were going on for more than four years as Marie utilized pain pills and shots in her knee to alleviate the pain.

After Marie started on a care plan, she's able to move much better and no longer has any pain. "i'm 81 years old and can get down on the floor and get up with no problem!"
"There were a few situations that were going on before I started going to Dr. Tony for help. In college, I was diagnosed with Neurocardiogenic Syncope and Post Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome. these are conditions that affect how the brain and heart communicate and the distribution of oxygen in the bloodstream. I was having several episodes of collapsing and passing out after I was involved in a bad car accident. A few months after I started having back problems, shoulder problems, and everything in between. These conditions bothered me for years in the beginning and prevented me from exercising, doing my job, and prevented me from living life on my terms. Before I started care with Dr. Tony, I was struggling for 10 years + and no one could figure out why. I had surgeries, was put on a variety of medications to "fix" the problems I had been suffering with. These conditions prevented me from staying in shape, caused depression and anger from never getting answers. I was frustrated and quit doing all the things I enjoyed. Dr. Tony found the answers to the questions I had -he told me the straight facts and explained how everything was connected together and how we can fix the problem, not just find a temporary solution. It was a team effort to get where I am today and I couldn't have done it without him. He believed in the possibilities of what my future could hold if I was just willing to try. Starting chiropractic care with Dr. Tony has literally changed my life, I am back to hiking, biking, and doing all things I once enjoyed. Because of his persistence and care, each day I am one step closer to getting the life I dreamed of."
"I first met Dr. Tony a little over a year ago at the Women's Resource Fair in Lake Geneva. i didn't really have any specific medical conditions, but I did have some tightness in my neck and shoulders. Dr. Tony showed me some trouble areas I had and I came into the office for a thorough exam. With x-rays, Dr. Tony was able to show me just how out of alignment my spine had become over many years of working in an office, sitting at a computer for 8-12 hours a day. Since I began seeing Dr. Tony, I have noticed a greater range of motion available when I turn my head, and reduced tension in my shoulders. The whole office is a delight to visit, and the Apex team really treats their practice members like friends and family."

Dr. Tony takes time to listen to you and is very kid friendly."

My pain really affected my life as I was unable to perform during softball/volleyball, jumping, running, sitting in a car for too long and dancing. After starting my care plan at Apex, I don't feel any pain in my hip and had forgotten that I even had a torn hip. Surgery was a possible option but I'm so glad I didn't go through with it. Getting adjusted is safe and very effective. Chiropractic allowed me to get back to my very active life!"

One day I was struck by the fact that my overall health had increased. My sinus headaches have all disappeared and no winter colds have come my way!"
"Over the past 30 years I've been a waitress, hairstylist, and a nurse. That's alot of years of being on my feet. My feet were the first thing to start bothering me. From waiting tables to working as a nurse in a hospital setting, the pain in my feet worsened. My doctors were unable to pinpoint the cause of my neck and back pain. X-rays and MRIs never revealed any problems. I was just told to take Tylenol and ibuprofen. I wanted a remedy, not a pill. I just endured the pain. Eventually, the pain started causing so much fatigue. It wore me out to the point where all I wanted to do was sleep and I needed help. I've been going to the Women's Resource Fair for many years and have talked to many of the chiropractors that were present & met Dr. Tony there. I went to Apex, had my consultation & he was able to show me my problems very quickly. I decided to give chiropractic treatment a try. It's been a year and Im so glad that I did. Dr. Tony has helped me with all of my pain issues and has helped me function better. Everyone at Apex is so very nice & they go above and beyond to make you feel as comfortable as possible. I'm very grateful to have Apex Family Chiropractic in my life."
"I was constantly suffering from a stiff neck/low back and pain down my leg. This problem has been bothering me on and off again for the past 12 years. The pain really limited my ability to work out and made it difficult to play different sports. My care at Apex has helped loosen up my my lower back and lessen my pain. My neck has been able to gain some mobility as well. I really enjoy Apex Family Chiropractic. The team is friendly and show they care about you. They really worked with getting me back on track when I had an unexpected set back."

She noticed immediate results after her adjustments and was able to get a better quality of sleep. Cori had a very fast and easy delivery of her child that her obstetrician agreed that chiropractic care during pregnancy attributed to a great delivery experience for her. Hunter enjoys his weekly "back massages" from Dr. Tony while Max first got checked at 4 days old for subluxations caused from birth and received his first chiropractic adjustment. Max has since received adjustments as he continues to grow, especially when he experienced early signs of torticollis.

"I was experiencing occasional lower back pain and constant pain/grinding in my left shoulder. My shoulder has been bothering me since 2004 and the back pain for the past couple of years. I've tried taking ibuprofen, physical therapy and deep tissue massages to help with the pain. My shoulder has affected me the most as it puts a strain on the types of physical activities I can do. Dr. Tony has helped me wake up without pain and has provided me with suggestions to use so that I may work out without pain. Jenny & Dr. Tony have always been helpful and kind."
"I had a lot of back pain due to arthritis and it bothered me mostly while walking. I had been experiencing it for 2-3 years and was using pain pills because I got to the point that I didn't like to go places that I had to walk alot.
