I have been a patient of Dr. Brian Dahmer since July 2006. I met him and his assistants at one of the health fairs at the Gulfview Mall. I made an appointment to see him that same week. When I was in his office there was never any pressure to sign up as a patient. He told me what was wrong, gave me a plan and a timeframe to get rid of the pain, and then let me decide if I wanted him as my chiropractor. I had been having a lot of pain in my left ankle, left knee, left hip and back for several months. My primary physician didn't seem too interested in finding a cure and was ready to refer me to a specialist. Dr. Dahmer took x-rays and started on his plan for a cure immediately. It has been 6 months since I started seeing Dr. Dahmer and I no longer have any pain in my ankle, knee, hip or back. Not only is he a great doctor, he and his assistants, Donna and Anna, are like family now. Dr. Dahmer is very patient and I never feel rushed during my appointments. My visits are relaxed and enjoyable. My husband is also one of his patients and has helped him with his neck and back pain. Dr. Dahmer is interested in the well being of all his patients, not only for chiropractic needs, but also for all other health issues. I can ask him anything; such as, what vitamins to take, what exercises I should be doing, and he always takes the time to talk to me. I recommend him to all my friends and family. Out of all the chiropractors I could have gone to, I'm so glad I selected the best one!
Are you skeptical about chiropractic care? After just one month of treatments, I am now a true believer. I have worked in the medical field for over twenty years with the last seven years as an Operating Room Registered Nurse. I first went to Dr. Dahmer on my husband's insistences. My husband thought that our whole family could benefit from Dr. Dahmer's care. Don't tell him, but he was right. I suffered with limitation of movement and painful muscle spasm in my neck for the last 4-5 months, which I blamed on sleeping wrong or just plain stress. But it turns out I can link my neck problems to a fall I had. Now after just one month of treatments, I no longer have limitations of movement and the only pain in my neck happens to be my wonderful husband.
Dear DR. Dahmer,
For over 30 years, before coming to you in September 2006, I have had to wear a back support several times a year, just to be able to stand reasonable straight and reduce the pain because of the severe spasms in my lower back. I was unable to stand straight in the morning when getting out of bed.
For the past five years, I was getting progressively worse. My left leg would go numb while standing in the shower of standing to shave. At times I had to physically pick up a leg to change position in bed. I was also unable to turn my head while backing my car and had trouble getting in and out.
I was at the point of believing that in another few years, I would be almost an invalid. Three different medical Doctors told me it was something I would have to live with.
Since I started seeing you, within one month, I was able to stand straight when getting out of bed. My leg has never gone numb again. I have not worn a back support once, since seeing you. I get in and out of my car with no problem. I can turn my head both directions while backing the car. My back spasms have disappeared. I no longer have back pain or discomfort.
As a matter of fact, I can do all the things I was able to do 30 years ago. It truly seems like a miracle.
I cannot express my appreciation enough for how much you have increased the quality of my life.
Hi. My name is Kelly and I am 41 and a mother of two. I used to go to the gym 3 days a week for 3 years. I was physically in shape and scheduled everything around my workouts, that's how much they meant to me.
For the last 2 years I have been seeing Doctors for my left ankle pain. The podiatrist did several procedures but nothing worked, so he referred me to a pain management Doctor. That Doctor wrote me prescription after prescription for pain and said "see you in a month", this went on for months. The medication really did not take the pain away and without realizing, I was becoming physically dependent on this medication. The Doctor started giving me sympathetic nerve blocks and they only worked for a short period of time.
To make a long story short, I ended up a Florida Detox, because I could not stop taking the pain medication without going through severe withdrawals. So they admitted me to remove the opiates from my brain.
So here I was 1 year later still in pain and refuse to take anything for it, I even had to have surgery since the detox and told them no narcotics.
So I walked in pain everyday, became depressed, and my friend and daughters personal trainer said, "I think I know someone who can help you".
So I made the appointment with Dr. Dahmer at Family Chiropractic and he told me you will be back in the gym in 6 weeks. I thought to my self, it will be a miracle. Now he is treating both my children and after 2 weeks of care I realized while driving, I did not feel any pain in my left foot, none at all.
It has been about 4 weeks and I still have no pain. At first I thought this is too good to be true. I called the office in tears telling them that I could not believe the pain was gone and I probably will get my life back. Thanks to Dr. Dahmer, after all the Doctors I saw and ending up paying $15,000.00 to Florida Detox and still in great pain. I thought to myself, he, Dr. Dahmer, has a very wonderful gift to give to people, so if you or someone you know is suffering from pain, please don't wait 1 more day and see the Doctors at
Because I suffer from Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia, I have some very special considerations as to my heath needs. Taking time to express my gratitude for treatments and therapeutic massages and recommending Family Chiropractic Center for Wellness, is a privilege for me.
The adjustments of chiropractic by Dr. Brian Dahmer and Matt as my massage therapist, have been such a beneficial help in my overall health and comfort. My pain levels have significantly decreased because of the treatment I receive there. After the first visit of x-rays and discussion of my upcoming treatment with Dr. Dahmer, I would recommend him to anyone who is suffering from any chronic illness. And please don't expect instant results. I have found the repeated adjustments over several months have been most helpful.
I do not know, at this time, how long I will continue with this program, but if I keep going I know I will probably feel better on a more consistent basis than I have in the past.
Thank you Dr. Dahmer and your staff for your helpful improvement to my overall health
Dr. Dahmer is simply the best. My mother began treatment because of severe pain in her back and neck from working as a server for 30 + years. For many years she suffered with extreme pain and it was getting impossible for her to walk for long periods of time or to even simply hold her head up as the pain and heaviness in her neck was so horrible . Mom was on one pain medication to the next and although the medicine relieved the pain some, it never truly went away. The situation had gotten to one point to where she had just given up on having any type of life without pain and she was miserable.
In just a matter of just weeks with her visits to Dr. Dahmer she has transformed into a different person! She went from not being able to do simple daily tasks to being up and enjoying life again, from going to the grocery store, swimming in the pool, to even out playing with the dogs and grandkids again. The difference in her quality of life is amazing, and my mother swears that Dr. Dahmer is her miracle worker. If you want to be made feel at home and be well taken care of Family Chiropractic Center for Wellness is the place for you. Dr. Dahmer shows genuine concern for his patients and he takes the time to listen is thorough and patient. He truly cares for his patients overall well being.I can't say enough good things about his practice, from the doctor, to the staff and office atmosphere you will not be disappointed.
