    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.

    I have white coat syndrome and have Never had a good experience with Drs. I felt I wasn’t being heard. From the moment I stepped foot in the door at New Life Chiropractic I knew I had found the right place!! My goal was no pain and no drugs and I have reached my goal!! There were things I had no idea that I could get over and all I had to do was ask and it was fixed. Not masked with drugs.

  • Larry MalloyFacebook

    Dr. Matt always takes the time to get everything back in the right spot! My wife and I have been going regularly for years and will continue as a part of a healthy lifestyle. We really appreciate the ladies in the office, as well. It’s always a pleasant experience. Thank you!

    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!

    I still recommend them whole heartedly, as it gets better with time!
    It’s been over 2 years that our family has been seen by Dr. Matt! The office ladies are all still the same and wonderful as ever! We have crazy schedules and they always accommodate us and with a smile! Dr. Matt has helped us recover from injuries, many illnesses, surgery, birth issues, being old issues, and gives us overall “just feel better” vibes! (There are 5 of us that visit Dr. Matt, 2 adults and 3 children) I was nervous when we moved to NWI and needed to find a new Chiropractor but Dr. Matt has gone above and beyond for us, even talking to our past doctor to help us feel comfortable and adjust us the same! I’m editing this review to say I still recommend them whole heartedly, as it gets better with time!

    After suffering from migraine headaches for over 20 years. She has visited multi- doctors and chiropractors never attaining relief. After 20 years of searching for the right chiropractor, she discovered Dr. Matt & Trish Hammett.

  • Luan Jacksonpowered by Google

    Dr Trish is amazing!!! She is the first chiropractor I have been to who truly helps me. She doesn’t “just adjust”, she heals. Other chiropractors do the same adjustment each time, Dr Trish adjusts her treatment to meet the needs of my body. I always leave the office having been helped. She is so good that I drive for 4 hours to have an appointment and I have referred people to her who live hours away. We all feel she has an intuitive gift. Thank you, Dr Trish, for the gift of health

    The Best Doctor I’ve ever met!
    After meeting many doctors Dr. Matt was the one who helped me a lot. I already have more than a year of receiving therapy and I feel the best. When I started going I went with a knee pain and in a few visits the pain was no longer there.
    My husband started two years ago, he went with a hard shoulder pain more than two years with that pain and like me in a short time that pain was gone.
    My son is 8 months old and he had knee problems from playing soccer. Dr. Matt helped him a lot! And now my son gets happy every time I tell him we have an appointment!
    He is finally an excellent doctor 🙂

    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.

    Dr. Matt fixed my 45K issue
    About 2 years ago, randomly I started to feel ill. It was a weekend of stomach issues which later morphed into a migraine and incredible pain behind my ears. I ended up leaving work that day, driving myself to emergency clinic and received a drug to get rid of the migraine that was presumably causing all of this. The pain never went away, and it only morphed into low grade fever, inability to open my left eye and a midnight ride to the Hospitals Emergency Room. Once admitted, I was kept overnight to bring down my incredibly high heartbeat and was given one dose of steroids. I went home the next day.
    Within a 24-hour period, I returned to the Emergency room with the same exact pain and was admitted for a week. They did every test on me under the sun (hence the 45K bill) , including spinal tap and never-ending supply of morphine that really didn’t do much to ease the pain that felt like someone was stabbing my ears and brain. The diagnoses were that I had an incredible sinus infection that has traveled back up (from my ears) and back up to push on the nerves that surrounded my brain. After a full dose of steroids and letting me finish it, I ended up going back home.
    Fast forward 6 months later, my ear pain was back. Completely freaked out at this point, I grasped at straws to find a cheaper solution that won’t take me back to the hospital. The only and temporary pain relief that I felt was from taking the extra strength, over the counter Sudafed. Even though this relieved my pain, it kept coming back. I ended up talking to two EMT doctors, one recommended a hearing and allergy test (passed both with flying colors) and the other told me I have a deviated septum and that I immediately needed surgery to correct that. In pain and broke at this point, I almost did the surgery but refrained at the last minute because this solution just didn’t make sense. I just let it be … I guess I must be in pain for the rest of my life.
    Fast forward to this year, I started to see Dr. Matt for sciatica issue and one day I overheard him explaining to a patient how an adjustment can help with ear infections. Intrigued, I asked him to do one on me. Within few minutes I felt all my sinuses drain down my throat and a massive lightbulb went on in my head! If my sinuses do not drain, all that sits in my ear tubes and festers. If not taken care of, it can become severely infected and land me in a hospital again. This adjustment has become a standard of my routine now and I feel incredibly lucky to have FINALLY found a solution that not only takes the pain away but doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg. Thank you – Maggie B.

    What a relief!!!
    Dr. Matt has provided me with such relief. I’ll be honest. I have multiple issue that caused me to be tense and be in pain. Before his treatment, I thought that I had to deal with it forever. He proved me wrong. Thank you Dr. Matt! You are amazing!

    Dr. Matt has helped me so much. If you are on the fence about whether you should give chiropractic care a try, you definitely need to go in.

  • Wendy WayneWendy Wayne

    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!!

    My daughter has had reflux since she was an infant and was on meds for it until she turned 1, at that we took time 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 not been there in a while, but when I did go, Dr. Matt was fabulous! Staff was great, accommodating to my schedule, helpful with the insurance/financial aspect, professional and efficient. Dr. Matt is sooooo intelligent and very capable of explaining what he knows in an easy to understand manner. I never met her, but I have heard Dr. Trish is equally talented! TEN STAR RECOMMENDATION!

    I cannot praise Dr. Trish enough! When my baby was born, my midwife took one look at her and said she needed an adjustment and gave me Dr. Trish’s name. The next day, when she heard my baby was struggling to eat, she called Dr. Trish for an emergency adjustment. Dr. Trish came in that same day- on her normal day off- to help my baby. She immediately got to work, and my baby’s face went from a distorted ball to a sweet baby face. After a few adjustments, my baby went from being unable to use a bottle properly to breastfeeding perfectly! Her foot was also turned up, so her toes were stuck against her shin. In the first visit. Dr. Trish was able to straighten it to normal.
    Beyond helping my baby, Dr. Trish had wonderful “bedside manner”. She communicated what she was doing well, and made me feel like a friend.
