Customer Testimonials

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.

Hey moms with constipated babies! Did you know there’s a chiropractic adjustment that can help with that? We were in to see Dr Trish for an adjustment for my 7 month old and I also expressed concern about his constipation. She explained the adjustment and checked if that area was out of line, and sure enough, it was! It worked like a charm and he had the poop we were finally waiting for a few hours later. Chiropractic care has so many benefits, and no question is too “silly” for Dr Trish. I appreciate her advice on all levels parenting, health and education!

We began our chiropractic journey last year when our 2 month old daughter was diagnosed with torticollis. She saw Dr. Trish every week for about 3 months and made huge improvements, (yay no helmet). Next my husband decided to give chiropractic a try, after seeing 3 doctors and 2 different rounds of physically therapy had not helped his lower back pain. With the help of Dr. Matt now he has been noticing great improvements in his back pain. So I decided I would go as well just for the overall heath benefits. Currently myself, husband and daughter all see Dr.Matt and we are so grateful we found New Life Family Chiropractic!

I began seeing Dr. Matt in 2015. My friend was bragging about his approaches years before. Based on the convo with my friend; I had full confidence Dr. Matt could help my back. I went into the office and had an x ray done so Dr. Matt could get to the problem areas of my back. I was bent over and in pain. After a few visits with Dr. Matt my back was corrected. I had been to other chiropractors but never had seen the knowledge that Dr Matt has in his healing techniques. His etiquette and general caring of his patients has made me want to contunue with appointments with him. Visiting a chiropractor is great even when there is no underlying problem. The benefits it does for your health in general is outstanding.

Our family has used New Life’s chiropractic services for many years. They are truly a family chiropractic center! My children love getting adjusted and the asjustments have helped keep them healthy. Dr Trish and Dr. Matt are wonderful with children, as well as excellent chiropractors. In addition, they make scheduling easy and flexible. The office staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend their services.

Dr. Hammett is a wonderful and caring chiropracter. I started going there over a year ago for back pain. He helped me immediately. He is very knowledgeable and is always showing me differerent stretches. His office is very friendly and I never have to wait longer then 5 minutes. I give Dr. Hammett and his office 5 stars.

If you are looking go here. They are amazing. Very friendly and treat you like family. I recommend to all my friends and family. So far Matt is really helping my pregnancy induced carpal tunnel im having issues with on my 3rd pregnancy. My 1yr old and 2 yr old just went for the first time today and they did great. Ive been to other chiropractors and this is where the family is staying. I feel they are definetley helping my pregnancy and I cant wait to get started on normal care after with the new baby.

New Life is amazing. I have always been greeted with kindness and treated with respect by everyone in the office. Dr. Matt and Dr. Trish are both incredible at what they do and are easy to work with. I have brought my baby here since she was 2 months old and I go myself too and don't plan to stop anytime soon. I highly, highly recommend New Life to anyone looking for a chiropractor!

In this episode I talk about the root of Dynamism, which is tapping into Your Inner Aborigine. The do's and don't of choosing nutrition and why many experts have fallen prey. I discuss why Nutrition Science is like surgery in the year 1650. How a trusted nutrition guru can off the deep end. Where chronic diseases really come from and how to Defeat it with food. In this episode I'm going to explain why eating food that never rots, will shorten your life. I'm going to explain why nutrition experts always conflict with each other, after all, the science they use ain't even human; it's rat and animals.

I have been seeing Dr. Matt for a while now and I dont know where I'd be without him! I sit in front of a computer 8+ hours a day and I no longer suffer from chronic headaches, my "old lady hump" is gone and I feel amazing! Thank you Dr. Matt for having such a passion for what you do and caring about your patients overall health! After 3 ear infections, and episodes of obvious neck pain and distress, I took my 3 month old baby to New Life. They drained her hears and diagnosed her with torticollis.

A. Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing organism controlled and regulated by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm whether your body is working as it should. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine may interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nearby nerves and the tissues they control. Precise chiropractic adjustments are intended to improve mind-body communications.

Video 1 of Industrialization of Food. What would happen if we were to start thinking about food as less of a thing and more of a relationship? Food as ecological relationships, not as simple chemical compounds that can be manufactured into a bottle. If you don't have your HEALTH and you don't INVEST in the WEALTH of your PHYSICAL body, what do you have?. Key concepts: How to harness gratitude. Three key decisions we make every moment of our lives that determine our level of Dynamism! You've heard sitting is the new tobacco.
