    After complaining to my friend, Tami, she recommended New Life Family Chiropractic Center. I was skeptical after seeing an acupuncturist which relieved my pain for 48 hours.

    I could barely get out of my car, when meeting with Dr. Matt. My condition was so severe, Dr. Matt was willing to see me on Saturday (which the office is closed).

    I didn’t realize at the time how much Dr. Matt was willing to get me pain free at that time. Thank you, Dr. Matt!

    I have been able to walk, sit, work, sleep and even return to the gym pain free. I continue to see Dr. Matt when an adjustment is necessary.

    Shortly after receiving treatment, I brought my daughter for a consultation before she began to see the benefits of Dr. Matt care.

    The great thing was that our insurance covered our treatments!

    Thanks to Dr. Matt and his wonderful staff who have gone above and beyond to teach us a healthy lifestyle and make us feel as family!

    Ive been going now for a month or so and today brought my whole family. Im pregnant and my midwife recommended I go here. I can start with the front staff. They are all super friendly they greet you and make sure you are taken care of right away. They all make you feel comfortable and like family. The atmosphere is totally relaxing and kid friendly. I was adjusted so far just by Matt. I needed appointment times at 5:15 so my husband would be available for the kids and they are very understanding. I even had to reschedule once and they were not mean about it exactly the opposite they just got me rescheduled with no hard feelings…for me thats important. Life happens with kids and it helps to go to someone who understands. As for my adjustment id been previously to two other chiropractors and im going to stick here. He is professional and friendly and will answer your questions. I can tell he has a passion for what he does because he definetley has shared some interesting insights in chiropractic care that I didnt know. I confessed I was a stomach sleeper and he quickly told me to break that habit which is honesty I appreciate so much. There arent many places I will say care about your well being anymore, and im happy I can say that so far here they care about your wellness over your dollar. Im so glad I was referred and I send all my friends and family to them as well.

  • Ambica M.powered by Google

    I started seeing Dr. Trish four years ago for severe nursing issues and truly could not have gotten through it (or the one after!) without her. Within a few adjustments, I was nursing pain free. She regularly ‘fixes’ my entire family now and has been a valuable resource for a multitude of other things, including helping to practically eliminate my fibromyalgia symptoms and mom advice. I could not be more grateful for her being so flexible and for all she has done for us!

    I work in the medical profession where there is lots of heavy lifting. I have had a bad back for years because of an injury. After a few adjustments, I feel like a new person. Thanks Dr. Matt.

  • Veronica O.powered by Google

    Dr.Matt is AMAZING! I have been to a couple chiropractors and non can compare. I had learned to live with pain before I came to see him but that is a distant memory. I am soo glad my mother in law referred me to him!!

    If you want to stay healthy and keep your career take the time to see a chiropractic engineer….See Dr. Matt

    Dr. Matt is a wonderful man…very intelligent in his field. He has gone over and above the extra mile to find ways to help his patients. He is a caring person and wants to see his patients get better. I’ve been to many Chiropractors through the years and he’s the only one that has been hones up front and explains everything to you and how your body works. I have made major improvements since I started seeing him last September. I have 3 herniated disc that have regenerative gaps between them now and the curve in my neck is improving.. I know I still have a long way to go, but I’ve made progress with the help of Dr. Matt and our Lord and Savior! GOD bless you Dr. Matt and thank you for your time and investment in me.

  • Raine B.powered by Google

    Getting my life back…no understatement.
    Living with chronic back pain for over 15 years, then I couldn’t live with it anymore. I had bad experiences in the past with different Chiropractors, so it has taken this long to find a solution to my pain.
    Found Dr. Matt Hammett and decided to trust him to do treatments.
    So far (after a few weeks) it has already made a big difference for me.
    Different approach to care and caring staff add up to a “New Life”.
    Update: It has been 6 months since I found Dr. Hammett at New Life Chiropractic. I am now sleeping at night and having many flexible moments that I had not had for too long to mention!
    I am so grateful for his help.
    Recommend them highly.

    Keeping My Family Healthy!

    Dr. Matt has been amazing with my whole family! Through his chiropractic care he has helped heal my daughter that had whiplash, son who couldn’t straighten his arm back after an injury, and has just helped us maintain our best health.

  • T CGoTellIt!

    Best of the Best! This is the most wonderful group of people I have ever had the privilege to know. Dr. Matt shares his ideas and knowledge freely to help you understand chiropractic treatment and he works diligently to see that patients receive the care that they need. The support staff is most accommodating and also work hard to get you the help you need when you need it. It is all accomplished in a welcoming, relaxed but definitely professional atmosphere. New Life is the best of the best.

  • Candice Hughespowered by Google

    I been seeing Dr. Matt for quite a long time now. His excellence has improved even greater throughout his career. In 2015 I came in all bent over in pain. I was astonished on how quick he got me back in shape. Also, that same year I found out I had an inflamed gall bladder. A surgeon tried to tell me I needed surgery. I discussed this with Dr. Matt and he said try changing your diet. Well I have changed my diet and did a recent ct scan and it showed my gall bladder is in unremarkable great shape. I can’t say enough about how my health has changed for the better not just my spinal health but my overall health in general. When other doctors may make my health look grim Dr. Matt makes me better. Thank you Dr. Matt for everything you have done and saving me from unnecessary surgeries and pain shots. You have made me feel confident about my overall, mind, body, and spirit.

    Family friendly and knowledgeable

    I first started taking my son to Dr. Matt 2 years ago for torticollis and nursing issues. Since then, I’ve seen him and continued to see him through my pregnancy. Now I take both children to him and my husband swears by how much better our kids are. Dr. Matt is super knowledgeable on health concerns and always positive. The staff is amazing and very friendly.

    At this point I’ve only had 2 adjustments with Dr. Matt, and that evening after I fell asleep, I ended up waking up and it was “light outside”!  Now, that might sound odd on my mentioning that. It’s been years since I had a single night I slept all the way through without waking up 5-6 times! I was so pleasantly shocked that I can not wait for my next few sessions with Dr. Matt to focus on my health.

  • Jeanette G.powered by Google

    My son just turned 3 and we’ve been seeing doctor Matt since he was 6 months old. Around 6 months old my son began trying to crawl but no matter how hard he tried he just couldn’t. I’d watch him struggle and I could tell he knew what to do but his body just wouldn’t move for him the way he needed it to. After his second adjustment my son started crawling PERFECTLY the next day. The adjustments also drastically reduced his screaming in his carseat. Since then we’ve regularly seen Dr. Matt as an entire family. After we had our daughter, who is now 1, we immediately had her in for adjustments and neither of our children has ever had an ear infection. I honestly believe this is because of the adjustments. (You can look up online how it helps.) I highly recommend NewLife and Dr. Matt! The whole family will benefit from GOOD chiropractic care!

  • Jose Escalerapowered by Google

    Dr Matt is a encyclopedia of knowledge.
    I came in with severe back pain and with a few questions and a quick test he could tell what was wrong and how we can fix it. I walked out of the office with feeling way better than when I walked in.

    My daughters reflux cured!
    My daughter has had reflux since she was an infant and was on meds for it until she turned 1, at that we took her off because we thought she was through it. Come to find out it wasn’t and we struggled with her eating for an entire year, and she started throwing up in her sleep. Her pediatrician wanted to put her back on meds but I hated the thought of her being on them again and never liked it in the first place. I had saw a few of my friends taking their kids to a chiropractor for reflux and they said it helped tremendously. So last March we started taking her and she is a completely different child! We are so happy with her chiropractor care!

    I have always suffered from lower back chronic pain to the point the doctors just wanted to just give narcotics to help with the pain. I never really took them and just went through life in pain with every day feeling worse. I’m only 38 and felt like I would be in a wheel chair in ten years. I felt tired and frustrated looking for decent medical treatment that didn’t involve surgeries or pain meds. I was tough so I kinda gave up on myself. I was recommended by a friend that told me that New life had changed their life. So I decided to give it a try. There treatments don’t involve costly surgeries or pain meds that just numb the pain for a bit. I was afraid no one would help me. But a few months after treatments, I was feeling like I could actually function like a normal adult. I didn’t even realize the pain I was going through before was actually making me feel so depressed. I can now actually do things I couldn’t do before going to Dr Mat. I’m so happy I can live like a 38 year old. Thanks Dr Mat and your lovely staff for helping me!!

    Dr Matt is awesome! I had been suffering from migraines for 10+ years. Was prescribed med after med. I got to the point that I was having them almost everyday! I finally came to Dr Matt and they were GONE after 4 sessions! What a miracle! I also had lower back pain and hip pain to the point that i was living off ibuprofen. NOT ANYMORE. This was the best medical decision i have made in my life. Truly great Christian people!! Staff is so friendly and caring as well! If you are on the fence…just take that leap. Dr Matt and Dr Trish truly care for their patients’ well being, you will be so happy you came here!!
