Relief for Chronic Knee Pain

When Dr. Bartz first came to Elkhorn I had been to three different Doctors to find some relief for bad knee pain. They couldn’t find anything and just gave me shots in it to relieve the pain. I saw Dr. Bartz in an advertisement in the paper for a free evaluation and went in. He told me right away where he thought it was coming from and we started treatment. I haven’t had any pain in the knee since we started treatment. I visit him every month for maintenance and he keeps me going. -Bill R.

The benefits I have received from Chiropractic Care with Dr. Bartz are wonderful

“On Oct 23 2009 I fell off travel trailer steps and landed hard, hitting and cutting open the back of my head on cement. I went to the Emergency Room, saw my primary care MD, had physical therapy, and saw a Neurologist with no relief. I also had 2 steroid shots, 1 in the neck and 1 in the head when I was sure I had no other options. The Neurologist felt that there was nothing further he could do other than prescribe more medication.

While on vacation in April, I saw a Chiropractor that was volunteering on the same mission trip and she treated me for 4 or 5 days, sometimes twice a day. This Chiropractor looked up an activator doctor in my home area for me and gave me Dr. Bartz’s phone number.

In the first week I noticed improvement and felt sure that Dr Bartz was going to help me. In the second week my granddaughter and I noticed that I could hold my head and neck up again. I could also look left and right easier while driving.

After 1 month my condition has been helped so much that I can do the things I haven’t done since before the fall last October and that makes my life so much better!

The benefits I have received from Chiropractic Care with Dr. Bartz are wonderful. I also have started my 5 year old granddaughter on Chiropractic care so she can be as healthy as possible!”

I was amazed at the improvement in my daughter!

“Baby Brooklyn Age 14 months

My daughter had been having trouble with bowel movents for a couple of months. I had been to the MD with her once without relief. My sister suggested I take Brooklyn to Dr. Bartz. Everyone at he office was very friendly and helpful. Within the first week of care I could already see a difference. After a few weeks of care I saw a big improvement. I was amazed at the improvement in my daughter and the benefits she received from Chiropractic Care.”

Dr Bartz and Chiropractic have kept me going!

“My brother recommended Dr. Bartz many years ago and I have found him and his staff outstanding.

I have had various problems develop over the years as I enjoy being an active person. I don’t like to take drugs as they only cover up the problem, they don’t fix it. Improvement I have experienced depends on the type of problem I have. Sometimes I receive immediate relief and sometimes it takes a few adjustments but I always get relief.

Dr Bartz and Chiropractic have kept me going and able to work. I have also learned exercises to help prevent problems.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Bartz to everyone.”
John Schmitt

Already feeling like a new person!

“I started coming to Bartz Chiropractic last week. It’s only my 3rd adjustment and I feel like a different person! I can sleep better, day 5 without a tension headache and I feel more relaxed. I used to take ibuprofen for either my constant headaches or pain throughout my body, that has also stopped. I look forward to every appointment to feel better and better.”

Patient review

“I am so grateful for the gifts Dr. Bartz has given me. My weekly adjustments help keep me running on all cylinders at work and home. Stress pains are alleviated, muscle pains melt away, and when a real problem occurs, recovery is much faster. I attribute my personal success as an Executive Director of Open Arm Free Clinic to having Dr. Bartz as part of my wellness team. Thank you for the care and compassion.”

Relief from pain after gardening

“I love gardening, however, it can wreak havoc on my lower back. Memorial Day weekend I really, really hurt myself. I could not walk, bend, sit , or stand. Dr. Bartz came in on his day off, took an x-ray, and adjusted me right away. I came in two more times that week and voila!! I was better! I took it easy with the gardening after that, and I am so grateful for all the help and relief Dr. Bartz has given me. Thank you!!”

Better Physically

“Dr. Bartz, Linda, Ann and Melissa are all great. I am always treated with kindness. They are always friendly and happy in this office. And I feel much better physically when I leave there.”
Kris M.

Every week I had better movement and less pain!

“In 1994 I had low back pain for 2 months from lifting wrong. I saw an MD who gave me drugs for pain and a muscle relaxer. A co-worker recommended that I go see Dr Bartz. After the first week of care, I was able to get off the meds and walked better and with less pain. Every week I had better movement and less pain. After 6 weeks my pain was gone completely. Dr Bartz got right to the problem instead of working on only the symptoms. Dr. Bartz has kept my spine in shape with regular Chiropractic adjustments ever since! I definitely tell people about him!”

Care for the whole family

“Dr. Bartz has been adjusting my familie’s spine using the Activator technique for 6 years. I had chronic neck, back and hip issues for over a decades and Dr. Bartz has helped my resolve those issues and more.”

Walking 2 miles after 2 falls after 2.5 weeks of adjustments!

“Thank you for all you have done to help me through the past 4 months. Between falling off a ladder and hurting my back and falling on the steps and hurting my foot; it has been a challenge. I believe that I healed quite quickly partly due to all of the adjustments from Dr. Bartz. 2 and 1/2 weeks after being released from care I was able to do a 2 mile walk. Thanks you!”

Patient review

“My back has been bothering me for many years and for the last 13 years some of my friends had been seeing Dr. Bartz. He has made my back hurt less and I still have some discomfort and pain at times but without his help I don’t know what I would do. Go see Dr. Bartz If you want to be able to live a better life.”

Back pain manageable

“I first came to Bartz Chiropractic with pain in my left hip, knee and calf. I also had pain in the top of both feet, which made walking difficult. I had suffered for 18 months and had tried pain pills and kept moving as much as possible. I blamed it all on age.

Dr Bartz took some x-rays and found arthritis, sciatica problems and degenerative scoliosis.

Today the original pain and achiness is 95% gone. Now that I know about the arthritis, I know what to expect and how to handle it. The constant ache was wearing on me, I was tired and “testy” most of the time. It was hard to enjoy myself, but now I can enjoy things and people again.

Before Chiropractic care with Dr. Bartz, all I wanted was quiet so I could relax and rest, now I enjoy seeing people and talking with them. I didn’t realize what all could be taken care of through Chiropractic! Keeping myself in adjustment makes me feel like a younger happier person, I even laugh at myself now and I hadn’t done that in a long time! Thank you.”

“I’ve been seeing a doctor regularly for about thirty years, but my story actually starts about fifty- four years ago.

When I was 19 years old I was in an automobile accident. I was thrown from the car and landed on my heard. When I got up from the ground there was a knot on the right side of my crown about the size of a goose egg. It eventually went away.

However, when I was making the bed one morning (I was 42 years old by this time), I flipped the bedspread toward the head of the bed from the end and POP. If felt and sounded as thought I had torn something in my back. I stood up and moved around. Nothing hurt and I could not find anything which was torn. I continued with my days activities. As the day progressed my back began to hurt. Over the next two or three days, my back ceased to hurt but it was painful to sit down and stand up. Not the actual sitting or standing, but the process of doing so. It eventually went away, but this painful sitting and standing recurred several times of the next couple of years. By this time I had obtained two very small grandchildren. My daughter and grandchildren were planning to visit or play with my grandchildren. I found a coupon for a chiropractor and scheduled a visit that very day. Dr. Young told me that I had rotated three lumbar vertebra about 45 degrees. I was Dr. Young for treatments each day for the next week and every other day for the week following that. When my grandchildren arrived I was able to hold and play with them, even on the floor. Of course the treatments were continued and gradually reduced over the next three months until once a month was sufficient.

Also add these two ingredients to my already existing back issue: sitting at a desk for 55 years and bad posture.

As I had said earlier, I had seen a doctor regularly since my first visit with Dr. Young. Since then, however, I had moved from Kansas City, MO to Elkhorn, WI. The process of moving: lifting and carrying created all kinds of issues with my back. I started seeing a doctor in Elkhorn, but after several visits his method of treatment did not seem to be helping. In conversation with my neighbor, Helen, she told me about Dr. Bartz, and his method of treatment, which was similar to the doctor I was seeing in Kansas City.

I called for an appointment and have been seeing Dr. Bartz since February 1, 2010.

Dr. Bartz treatments have been beneficial and both he and his staff are very friendly”

“I have had back pain since Spring 2010 while playing college softball. The pain is constant and gets worse during practice.

I had see a Chiropractor who treated me but felt I was not holding my adjustments. My brother had seen Dr Bartz while he played college ball so my parents asked him for a second opinion. During my visit with Dr. Bartz he gave me a heel lift to wear to help balance my leg lengths and an adjustment. I wrote to Dr Bartz 5 days later and told him my back is doing great. I have a little bit of pain and tightness in my lower right back, but it is not nearly as bad and is expected. I am able to practice all the time now. This week for practice we have hit every day and I normally would not be able to practice the next day, but now I am able to practice fully. Thank you so much for everything.”

“My Chiropractor was ready to retire and referred me to Dr Bartz. I was having some back pain and do not like to medications so Chiropractic seems the way to go for me. I have been a patient with Dr Bartz for years and he has been very helpful.

My wife also started care with Dr Bartz and he helps keep her back healthy without medication.

Linda is great in the office situation and is always pleasant with a smile on her face.”
