I can see a big difference already in my body. I can breath through nasal passages better and my knees and legs don’t hurt like they did. I was almost immobile, but Dr. Mike in five visits has changed that.
I first saw Dr. Teifke in October of 2009. I was unable to use my right arm at all, I learned to do things with my left arm and hand. I had x-rays taken and they showed that I had three compressed vertebrae in my neck which were causing the immobility of my right arm. I returned the following day for my first treatment and after Dr. Mike had finished I was able to use my right hand to shake his hand. If it wasn’t for Dr. Mike’s honesty and patience with me, my treatment would not have been a success. Thanks Dr. Mike! You’ve given me a better life and the use my my right arm again. Wow, what a difference it has made! I have had the privilege of working with Dr. Mike, Dr. Shelby and Dr. Smith for my maintenance adjustments to keep me going. Between Dr. Mike and Dr. Smith they help keep me tuned up as well as pain-free for the most part. Dr. Mike, thank you for taking on two more doctors to better serve your patients. Thank you Dr. Smith for your unique way of getting the vertebrae to pop back in between my shoulder blades. You all work miracles, keep up the great work! I recommend you all to whoever I speak to, even complete strangers.
I started getting insomnia around December. My doctor put me on Ambien. I was suffering from my neck constantly popping and having ear drainage and sinus problems. If you read anything I write the most important is this- I never understood chiropractors. Since coming to see Dr. Shelby I have been able to go my Ambien and I have never felt this good. So if you are hurting relax! Dr. Shelby=feel better!
There are so many people that have helped me over the years in my journey to deal with my constant back and neck struggles, but this shout out is waaay overdue! Dr. Smith truly saved me from the wheelchair more than he will ever know! I wholeheartedly believe the first day I saw him I was moments away from being in that wheelchair for the rest of my life! His professional care, expertise, support and encouragement over the years literally saved me! I know I can be a pretty non-compliant patient at times, waiting till I’m almost dead to return sometimes, but I’m letting you know I would not be where I am today without him!!! Not only is he the BEST doctor ever, but he is an amazing person too! I consider him my friend and I’m forever grateful!
In just the one week that I have been coming to Principled Chiropractic I am amazed at what pain relief I have found. After several years of not being able to sleep through the night and having days where I would fall asleep during class time, I now wake up feeling rested. Before I would almost cry at bedtime because of the pain in my back and numbness in my hand. No more getting up at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning to move to the recliner. Both the cats and I are getting more than quick little cat naps.
When I came to Dr. Shelby I was told I needed surgery on my back and I was looking at six months to a year recovery. I was nervous about seeing a chiropractor, but by the time I left my first appointment Dr. Shelby and the staff had made me feel 100% at ease. I am now walking around without my back pain! I have been able to go back to my normal activities and I feel great! I can’t thank you enough Dr. Shelby! You are amazing!
I am a realist. I don’t go into something thinking it will work. The first time I visited Principled Chiropractic was because my husband went there and was really impressed with the office, the employees and especially Doctor Mike. I went in reluctantly thinking it was just another bone doctor and the pain would be the same. Boy was I ever wrong.
Before I tell you the outcome of my visits let me give you a little background. I would say my back had been bothering me or going out for at least the last 45 years. I had been to other Chiropractors, been through the process of needles in my back with electrodes attached, massage therapy, painful injections every few months and constant rehabilitation sessions. As a matter of fact at least the last 15 years have been nonstop therapies. Trying this then that with nothing ever working. I was resolved to the fact that I would never be pain free and therefore would need to just live with it and do the best I could to manage. This is when my husband said ‘Just try Principled Chiropractic, they have done amazing things for me!’
So being stubborn I said no, of course ‘that’s a woman’s right’, but began to rethink it after the thought of being able to move with less pain and so what the heck… I will just go in and check it out. As I said, I am a realist. I could suffer another disappointment when nothing helped the pain. I had been doing it for years.
First, I have to tell you that the staff floored me. They were friendly, happy to listen to me, showed me a video of what I would be going through and why, how many times it might take to ease the pain and the best part is they were honest. I was informed I would need to come in 3 times a week starting out just to get me adjusted properly. I had to continue treatments every two weeks probably for a year and then perhaps once a month for life. I was in bad shape and for once in so many years I felt hope. Hope, that finally something could be done to take that pain away. I followed Dr. Mikes instructions and he worked with me weekly (still does). I can walk with my grandkids now, I can jog if I want to, I can bend over and tie my shoes, I can get out of a chair easily and off the floor without rolling over to a couch or chair to drag myself up. All these things might seem minor to you but when your back will not let you move without searing pain shooting down your leg or up into your shoulders you will never know what it is like to just feel normal again. I owe so much to Principled Chiropractic for not treating me like a number but treating me like a patient they could work with and help. They have done just that. Without this Chiropractic family I might be in a permanent bent over position looking at the cracks in the sidewalk instead of walking with my head up and enjoying the world.
Just a note to add to my story. My daughter called me today. She has a back twice as bad as mine and was about to go through the same needles, massage therapy and painful injections I did. I told her to call Dr. Mike. She did, he welcomed her in, told her what was on the horizon for her and she is on her way to recovering her movement. It’s going to be a long haul but Principled Chiropractic will see her though it. Because they act more like family, it’s easy to believe there is hope. It’s nice to know someone has your back. They do for me and they will for her. I am no longer a skeptic, I am a believer.
When I first came in here I could hardly walk without my leg and back hurting. After the fifth treatment I went out and ran my fastest mile time. I’m in track/cross country, so that’s awesome. Thanks!
I’ve been a patient of Principled Physicians for thirteen years. I followed Dr. Teifke from his former location in Hamilton, OH to Lawrenceburg, IN. It seems that whatever has ailed me he’s been there to fix. I have had the great opportunity to be adjusted by his cohorts and would recommend them any day as well! In a day when the medical industry wants to push pills for every ailment, I love coming here, getting adjusted, and walking away feeling better- pill-free! I’m moving away and Dr. T has hooked me up with doctors where I’m going. They’ve got big, big shoes to fill. Thank you Dr. Teifke, Dr. Smith and Dr. Shelby!
After falling down the stairs I decided to go to the chiropractor. Being my first time going to a chiropractor, I was a bit skeptical. However, from the moment I walked in the door I knew I was in the right place. All the staff were nothing but professional. I was suffering from neck, back and shoulder pain. Now I’m halfway through my treatment and I feel much better. I can’t wait until I’m fully recovered! I highly recommend Principled Chiropractic!
For years I’ve had pain across my low back. One day it hurt so bad I decided that I had to do something, so I decided to come here. In just one week it started feeling better. Now it’s getting better all the time and at 100%. I find myself being able to do things I couldn’t do before. Now I’m just coming one time a month to keep it better.
I’ve had trouble with my neck for about eighteen years. Eighteen years ago I had a cow try to kill me. Last year has been really bad for me. I can’t sleep at night or day. It’s hard to drive a car, it’s hard to do housework. I have extremely terrible headaches at night, them I get really dizzy. It got to the point where I couldn’t get out of bed and I had to have someone help me get up! I couldn’t do anything by myself. This is when I started going to Dr. Shelby. My friend Pat Hamilton told me I needed to go to Dr. Shelby. If it wasn’t for Dr. Shelby helping me I don’t know who would be. Dr. Shelby is a wonderful doctor! I can drive my car, do housework and some yard work for now. My neck doesn’t hurt anymore. Thank God for Dr. Shelby. I can go fishing again!
I started coming to see Dr. Shelby because of my bad headaches and upper-lower back pain. I am a mother of four kids, ranging from four to nine years old. I was always in pain, all the time. I had no energy to do much with the kids Someone told me about chiropractic care and how it may be able to help me. Let me tell you, best decision I’ve ever made coming here. After one month time, I am completely pain free. I feel like I’m a brand new mom! It is an amazing feeling! Dr. Shelby is wonderful! All the staff is as well! Thank you!
I’m a fifteen year disabled combat veteran. I have been going through treatment and rehabilitation at the Cincinnati VA Medical Center since leaving duty in 2008. I had a bad spell with my lower back in the summer of 2012 and the VA was backlogged. There were days I could not get out of bed and walk. The VA gave me a referral to local outpatient treatment. I met with Dr. Scott Shelby and he accepted my referral. He began treating me immediately and after a few weeks I was feeling better. The pain slowly went back to tolerable levels and I was able to return to doing basic activities around work and home. After a few months, I was able to start back into exercising, which was a huge stressor for me when I was not able to do it. With the pain at tolerable levels again and exercising, I am now feeling much better and my quality of life has returned. I am the father of five very active children who are all involved in sports and outdoor activities. Not being able to get on my feet without being in severe pain scared me and my family. I was skeptical when I was given the referral, since so many other treatments had failed to give me any improvement. I have been to several rehabilitation centers and back specialists since my injuries in 2006, but never a chiropractor. None of them have had the results that I have experienced from chiropractic care. I cannot thank Dr. Shelby enough for helping me get back on my feet and moving again. The staff are also very helpful with appointment reminders and are always smiling and willing to help when I walk in the door. I highly recommend anyone having pain to give chiropractic a try! Thank you Dr. Shelby, Ashley, Kristy and everyone else at Principled Chiropractic!
I was having headaches daily and had excruciating migraines about every other week. They got so bad that they would come on suddenly and 2-3 minutes later I was getting sick. I knew I had to get something done. I was working at the radio station and heard Dr. Shelby mention headaches on the radio show. After the show I spoke with him and decided I needed to get an appointment. I went that next day. He showed me the x-rays he took and I could see I was out of line. After twelve visits not only am I am migraine and headache free, but Dr. Shelby also helped my lower back pain from I fall I had four years ago!
In the past I haven’t gone to anyone until I was in pain. When I saw Dr. Shelby he fixed my back pain and my foot that had been going numb when I walked. I had been ignoring the fact that my foot went numb for a while. If I had listened to the signs I wouldn’t have been in pain from my back going out. Dr. Shelby straightened my back and fixed my foot. I am going to get regular treatments and keep this from happening again. If only I had listened to the little things I would have avoided a lot of pain.
I first came to see Dr. Shelby for extreme lower back pain about a year ago. After a couple of months the pain was completely gone and was back to being able to work out again. Awhile back I had hurt my shoulder running in a “Warrior Dash” and I went to see an orthopedic doctor, who did a MRI and told me I needed surgery. But seeing Dr. Shelby he said that he may be able to fix my shoulder. After only a month of treatments I have full movement back in my shoulder with little to no pain and best of all, no surgery. Thanks.
When I came in here last October I was in a lot of pain. It was so bad that I was going to get surgery because of lower back pain and pain down both of my legs. I used to go to a different chiropractor once a year and just walk off the pain. After ten treatments I’ve gone from a 10 to a 1 on the pain scale. I can handle that, that’s manageable. Now I’m down to once a month treatments.
It was a dark and stormy night…well, it was dark! I fell in my driveway while walking my dog for the last time before bedtime. A year after falling, and a shoulder surgery to remove bone shards, I still could not fully extend my arm because of the severe pain involved. I mentioned it to Dr. Scott and after a single treatment I was finally able to fully extend my arm without pain! Thanks to the kind and welcoming staff at Principled Chiropractic, I have the feeling of feeling well again! Thank you so much.
I came to the chiropractor because I had lower back pain. I had the initial consultation and the doctor decided to do six treatments. After the six treatments I had no pain at all. My back feels great!
