Perfect Fit

I’ve been treated for low back issues by Dr. Martin ever since he’s been in business and took over Wieben Chiropractic. I have seen some of his employees come and go. Now I must say the team he has built is a perfect fit and they are truly blessed individuals. Keep up the great work Dr. Martin! as my back is feeling awesome.

Best in His Field

Six years ago, Dr. Martin discovered (through x-ray) an abnormally long aorta. He referred me to my family physician, who further investigated and then ultimately led to surgery for aortic aneurysm.

Recently, while traveling, I developed severe back pain. Although I saw, and was treated by, an orthopedic surgeon and a chiropractor out of state, the severe pain continued and wound up affecting my legs and feet. Steroid shots had little effect, nor did medications.

This week, Dr. Martin began treatments, and after only one treatment I had remarkable decrease of pain in my back, legs and feet. I can walk comfortably, and I haven’t felt this good since getting hurt in July 2012.

I will continue with Dr. Martin, as he is the best in his field in this area. I can recommend him without hesitation.

Awesome!

I came into Dr. Martin for tremendous back pain and blurred vision. I was referred by my daughter, who couldn’t say enough good things about him and the clinic.
Upon walking into ICC, I was very impressed. It’s a high class place with humble, good-hearted staff that genuinely cares about your being there.

Dr. Martin always makes time for me and never makes me feel rushed. He’s totally present and invested in my healing process. I learn so much from him each visit.

Since coming to ICC, I have had dramatic results. My back feels good as new, and my blurred vision went away with my first visit.

I highly recommend ICC and Dr. Martin as your primary care for health related matters and living a full, long life. They do it all here, and they really get you better than ever before!

I never thought I’d be able to ride again

I just want to express my greatest appreciation for your professional and quality service and care. This last weekend I rode my bike in the BRR Ride, a 25 mile bike ride from Perry to Rippey. This is a relatively short ride, but 6 months ago when I was crying in your office from herniated discs in my back- and my medical doctor wanted to perform surgery- I thought I would never be able to ride again.

I am happy to report that I did complete this ride, and I did so painfree during and after. I am now looking forward to many more rides and opportunities in the future. I just wanted to say once again, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

May our God continue to keep all of you safe.

When I first started going to Dr. Martin about three years ago, I was getting severe headaches frequently. After a period of treatment with Dr. Martin, the headaches reduced both in number and severity. I didn’t have a serious headache for two years, which was amazing considering where I was when I first started seeing Dr. Martin. He  also relieved mid and lower back pain for me.  I most appreciated Dr. Martin when I had two major surgeries in a three-month timeframe. Dr. Martin was able to adapt adjustments in a  gentle, yet effective, manner, so I could continue with the needed treatments for my neck and back. His encouragement was a major factor in my recovery.

 

Dr. Martin is always professional, friendly, and concerned about my health in general. He’s always willing to do his part to help me improve my health. I appreciate the way he explains his techniques. It’s important to him that I understand my healthcare.

 

Diana is a jewel! She has a kind heart and a gentle spirit as she administers therapy.  She is an integral part of each visit.

 

My husband has never been a fan of chiropractic, so when he had neck and shoulder pain and was unable to turn his head, I had to be very persuasive to convince him to give Dr. Martin a try.  Dr. Martin told him that he had impingement in his shoulder which was causing the neck problems.  After several months of treatment, my husband says that his neck and shoulder have never felt better. He also has relief of pain in his lower back.

 

I believe that Dr. Martin truly cares for his patients. I don’t feel like another chart walking through his office. I am a person under his care, and he takes that responsibility seriously.

Back Pain Relief

I was having back pain for about a month. I went to my regular doctor, and he said it was a pulled muscle and gave me meds.

That did not work at all. The meds just made me tired.Then I came to Dr. Martin, and in three days or less, I felt great and still do!

Our Son AJ

We brought our son AJ to Dr. Martin one year ago. AJ had been suffering from a chronic nighttime cough for almost two years, and his treatment was an inhaler (Advair) twice a day, which included a steroid (Asthma-so they told us).

On good faith, we took AJ off of the inhaler as soon as we started treatment with Dr. Martin and he has not been on it since! Thank you Dr. Martin- you have amde us believe in chiropractic as the best solution!

Stomach Problems & Migraines

When I first came to Iowa Chiropractic Clinic, I had been in pain for 4 months, and I had a lot of trouble with GERD. I had been seeing a GI doctor and was on prescription meds for my stomach, as well as migraines. I was also suffering from pain in my ribs.The doctor told me that I had rolled a rib and that was causing a lot of problems for me. When I came into the clinic, I also explained that I was unable to eat because of the pain and constant stomach problems. After just a few weeks with Dr. Martin, I was able to eat and I was off all of my pain killers.

After 6 weeks, I was not having migraines 3x week, but I was having them a couple of times a month. I am now 3 months into treatment and I’m off ALL my migraine medicine. I can eat anything without having heartburn, and I’m sleeping through the night without waking up every couple of hours because of pain. Dr. Martin took me from walking hunched over to walking tall. He is the best!! Also, Iowa Chiropractic Clinic has the nicest staff that you will ever meet. I now only come into the clinic every so often when I feel the need for an adjustment.

Elbow Tendonitis

I was experiencing extreme pain in both of my elbows, a condition referred to as tennis elbow. I had developed this condition from weight lifting in my workouts.

I first tried simple stretches and massaging the tendons in my forearms, but the pain was still present.

My condition worsened to the point where I couldn’t fully extend my arms without terrible discomfort and pain. Even the gravitational pull on my arms while I was walking would cause pain.

I decided to address this issue with my chiropractor, Dr. Martin, because I had learned from him that adjustments help mobilize joints and allow for better range of motion. That seemed like the cure to my condition since my arms were so stiff and immobile. Dr. Martin began adjusting my elbows each visit, and I had immediate relief each time. A few visits later, the pain was gone.

I still get my elbows adjusted from time to time to keep my body healthy throughout strenous workouts and heavy lifting. I feel able to grow and perform better than ever before.

Thanks ICC and Dr. Martin! You rock!

Resting Peacefully Once Again

I was waking up in the middle of the night, and every morning, with severe upper back and neck pain. It had been going on for about 6-7 months. The pain limited my mobility and gave me migraines.

I had never been to a chiropractor before seeing Dr. Martin. He made my first experience very comfortable, and I felt confident with my plan to get better leaving the office.

After only 9 visits, I’ve had a 180 degree turn-around with my problems! There’s no pain in night or morning, and I’m getting a much better night’s sleep, which is very important.

Iowa Chiropractic is completely remarkable. The staff and Doctors are so friendly and nice. Thank you for everything!

Low Back and Shoulder Pain

I have been a patient of Dr. Martin and Dr. Bentley since August of 2012. I have had lower back problems since 2009 and had disc surgery in 2010. My back pain has continued in spite of surgery. I also have shoulder pain that has gotten progressively worse.
I came to the clinic on a recommendation from a friend.
Dr. Martin and Dr. Bentley have taken the time to listen to me. They have been very thorough in their diagnosis. They have worked with me on things that I can be doing at home to help in my overall health.
My back is basically pain free for the first time in over 3 years. My shoulder is getting better as well. I have recommended this clinic to another teacher in my building. She is also having success.
Thank you Iowa Chiropractic!

Headaches & Pain

When I first started coming to Iowa Chiropractic Clinic, I had tremendous pain in my neck and shoulder, and I was suffering from daily headaches. I had tried my regular doctor and using exercises, but nothing seemed to relieve the pain. Since beginning treatments, I no longer have pain or headaches. Nor do I catch the common cold. It has changed me for the better!

Migraines

I’ve always had a need for chiropractic care since I was a teen, but last year I was in a severe car accident that had severe side affects. I was having migraines 4-5 times a week, I was exhasuted and in a chronic state of pain. It was affecting my ability to partake in every day activities- including my job. I had been going to physical therapy, but it wasn’t enough. I needed my chiropractor. After a month of care under Dr. Martin, my migraines had decreased to only once a week. Now, a year later, I’m back to my normal self. I still need chiropractic care on a regular basis to keep feeling good. Iowa Chiropractic has helped me take my life back.

Success Stories

Ten years ago, I had an injury resulting in a T12 compression fracture. the doctors fused 5 vertebrae in my back. Following the surgery and recovery, I was able to return to my normal activities, including weight lifting. About a year ago, I woke up in the middle of the night with sharp, severe back pain and radiating leg pain. I was unable to get off the couch without assistance. After seeing 3-4 doctors, being diagnosed with a severe disc herniation, and being prescribed one pain med after another, I was no better. That’s when I came to Iowa Chiropractic Clinic. After only 2-3 weeks, my leg pain was gone and my back pain was dramatically better. Today, with regular maintenance care, I am virtually pain free, doing everything I want to, including weight lifting, and I feel better than I have in a long time!

I wanted to express my appreciation and gratitude for your excellent care and going above and beyond when it comes to services and care.

I remember the first time I came into your office shortly after you opened. I could hardly move my neck and I was very leery of chiropractic care because of past experiences. You put my care to rest and within a few treatments I was much better. I maintained regular maintenance care and would not trust my neck to anyone else.

Then last summer, I was moving into my new office and herniated two discs in my back and all the medical doctors were telling me I needed to have surgery. I was in the hospitial for three days and I felt like you were a partner in my healthcare and a friend. Called you daily and share the suggested treatment plans and knew you would point me in the right direction to get my health back where I wanted. I was in terrible pain and called you on a Saturday in tears. You came in on a Saturday and gave me an adjustment but more than that you gave me hope that surgery may not be the only options and that I could get to the point that I could get back to normal activities. Normal in my book is very active to most anyone else riding bikes, swimming, working out and running my own business. It took several months and I am not totally where I need to be but I know I will be before summer.

Thank you and your staff for all you do. You truly have made my life better and I would not trust my spinal health to anyone else. You are worth the drive from Des Moines for treatments.

I was in yesterday and have been feeling under the weather because of constant sinus issue that I have. Dr. Martin did a couple extra adjustments on my back/neck and I immediately felt light headed and my sinuses started to drain…all a good thing.

I woke up this morning and my sinuses have continued to drain and I actually feel a ton better! I can’t thank you guys enough for the work that you’ve done on me. Tonya recommended that I go here because of my chronic low back pain and the possibility of helping out with my sinuses. The treatments I’ve been receiving are definitely helping!

You guys are a wonderful team and I appreciate the work that everyone has done for me.

Thank you!
