~~The following is a testimonial espousing the skills of Dr. Jaime Ouellette Lemek:
Earlier this week, my email account lit up with Facebook notifications in response to an announcement of the imminent opening of the chiropractic office of Dr. Jaime Ouellette Lemek. In her blog she happened to say thanks to me for helping with some of the work constructing her new office. While I heartily thank her for her appreciation of my efforts, I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that it was her handiwork which allowed me to help with that work. I wanted to see her be able to help others.
Three to four years ago, a relatively constant pain of my legs, hips, and back was a companion I didn’t need. Although in my early fifties, I had maintained a good exercise regiment throughout my life as an aging but game basketball player. I ran to get in and stay in shape. I stretched as well, yet my muscles still felt tight and agitated. I exercised regularly, thinking that, by exercising my body would adapt back to the correct muscle tension. It didn’t work. Still tight and still with some pain.
Finally I went to a chiropractor, wondering if my linkage was somehow in discord. The chiropractor gave me 15 minutes of heat therapy, a light massage, and an attempt at a manipulation. I went to three weeks of appointments, twice a week, without noticeable effect. My condition didn’t improve but the treatment actually aggravated the situation. Dissatisfied, I sought help through other clinicians. Nothing helped as I was still slightly misaligned, always tight and pulling.
My niece (yes, she married my nephew) had a practice so I decided to give it a try. Dr. Jaime listened carefully as I described my physical issues to her. She put me through a few more tests and announced that my spine and hips were out of alignment. One leg rode higher than the other, putting stress on the whole system. She gave me a manipulation that didn’t hurt, but in fact, re-aligned me properly. I could feel it immediately, walking out of the appointment with a reasonable level of comfort.
After a couple more manipulations, I grew stronger. That was two years ago. I have been pain-free and very active ever since.
Dr. Jaime’s experience and knowledge really did change my life, physically. She really cares about treating her patients right and for that, I would recommend her chiropractic skills to anyone.
