    If you are on the fence…just take that leap!
    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!!

    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!!

    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 🙂

  • 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.

    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!

    Incredible! I was referred to Dr. Hammett by my sister-in-law and by now my whole family goes to get adjusted.
    I came in with incredible chronic back pain which was diagnosed as scoliosis.
    Due to my age and Dr. Hammett’s treatments I am 2 adjustments away from being fully healed! If you’re looking for a great chiropractor with a holistic natural approach to health, Matt is your guy!

“Seriously, this is the place where magic happens. After numerous physical therapy and no relief, I went to see if Dr. Matt could help me. After a couple sessions I’m pain free. Makes me wonder, because the doctor I saw was recommending a surgery. Thanks for the wonderful road to recovery Dr. Matt.” — Ausra C.
