Optimizing Function

In addition to straightening out my back and tailbone, I’ve had a few other surprises, including better sleep, digestion and breathing!

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

I experienced a fall where I landed directly on my tailbone and it felt like I compressed my whole back. It hurt to sit and even more to sleep. I could not get comfortable and spent most nights tossing and turning and most days exhausted. Prior to that I had reoccurring back issues from an accident that have never been resolved.

In addition to straightening out my back and tailbone, I’ve had a few other surprises. My sleep, digestion, and breathing have all improved and I look forward to my ongoing wellness care! Dr. Kevin has done some work on my sinuses which has opened up my breathing. This is a benefit during the day when I am often congested but especially at night. Both my pain and breathing relief have helped me sleep better at night. Additionally, I have had some digestive problems that cause me to have acid reflux at night and I have noticed that has subsided. I look forward to seeing more improvements in that area.

I try to take as few medications as possible where a natural option is available so I was happy to hear the Thrival Mode philosophy of wellness over episodic visits and eager to work with Dr. Keri and Dr. Kevin. To me, overall wellness is not just about illness but also self-care when we are well. This is therapeutic for me after both stressful work days and physical pursuits.

Alyssa is sleeping better, has less stress & her chronic pain is gone!

After 1 week of being adjusted, I noticed less tightness between my shoulder blades and that I was getting more quality rest at night.

Dr. Kevin & Dr. Keri have changed my life so much! I originally fell while skiing and injured my tailbone. My care at Thrival Mode became much more than just the pain in my tailbone. I was in a car accident in 2009 and ended up having chronic neck pain and headaches. I was told by many doctors that there was nothing they could do about the pain, and I would simply have to live with the pain or go through surgery. At the age of 20, surgery was simply not an option I wanted to pursue.

After being under the care of these two amazing doctors for 4 weeks, my first neurological scan compared to my second showed tremendous improvement. I could already feel a difference after the first week of being adjusted. I noticed that the tightness between my shoulder blades was not as noticeable and that I was getting more quality rest at night. They are very educated and want/ love to share everything they know with you. Now that I am recovering finally, I can’t help but shout out how great they are to everyone I know. Living a pain free life is amazing!!!

Thank you SO much Dr. Kevin & Dr. Keri you are a blessing!

Sciatica, numbness and sleeping better!

In about 5 weeks I was pain free, able to bend and move, and sleeping in any position I wanted to at night.

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

Before I met Dr. Keri and Dr. Kevin I would travel down to the front range for my chiropractic appointments. I am so glad that I went to Thrival Mode. I had severe sciatica down my right leg, occasional numbness into my toes, and at times was unable to stand. This had been going on for years and was preventing me from getting a full night’s sleep. I was tired of taking over the counter pain medications and had tried physical therapy but only to attain temporary relief.

The doctors were upfront about their approach and procedures in the office. I really appreciated the explanation of the how and the why behind what they were doing. In about 5 weeks I was pain free, able to bend & move, and sleeping in any position I wanted to at night.

I have been very happy with my results at Thrival Mode and can’t thank them enough for their willingness to teach me exercises at home and during my travels. Thanks for getting me back in shape to make my trip to Europe this summer! Thanks for all you have done.

Since I’ve found Thrival Mode my confidence has turned to faith.

I went into Thrival Mode to alleviate recurring back pain.

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

The pain was mild, but noticeable enough that it would keep me from doing the things I loved or work that needed to be done. I would take ibuprofen temporarily relieve the pain in my low back and shoulders. On the first visit I learned more about how chiropractic helps the nervous system’s function improve and how that could possibly help my allergies as well. My allergies weren’t usually bad, but they would flare up; one time it was even so severe both eyes were swollen shut. I would take loratadine to keep my allergies in check.

Since I’ve found Thrival Mode my confidence has turned to faith. Their approach has shown me that there are more possibilities with chiropractic care than I had ever known. After about 3 months of committing to myself and my healing I am proud to say my back pain and allergies are gone. I have not needed pain relief meds for my back or my usual allergy meds. Aside from a stray sneeze, I have had zero allergy symptoms since starting under regular chiropractic care! I have been really pleased that I can call and easily get an appointment the same day.

I have and will continue to refer anyone suffering from something I’ve seen people get results with at Thrival Mode!

I finally decided to make chiropractic part of my healthcare and I’m so glad I did.

The passion for the work they do is evident and most impressive for me.

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

As a cheerleader and a gymnast, I beat my body up pretty good from an early age. I have used Advil episodically for my low back and neck/shoulder pain but was basically just tolerating my pains. I knew that in order to exercise at the level I wanted to again, I needed to make my health a priority.

Since beginning care at Thrival Mode, I have enjoyed that the appointments take no longer than 15 minutes. I can tell that the doctors love what they do. The passion for the work they do is evident and most impressive for me. I have noticed that my original aches and pains that I came in for have improved tremendously, but I have also had other great changes as a side effect. I feel better during my workouts, my sleep is much improved, my posture is better, and I have noticed improvements in my digestion.
Chiropractic results were not overnight for me, but with my commitment to my health I am finally seeing some changes that I have needed for a long time. Thank you Dr. Keri and Dr. Kevin for all that you do; I did not realize this was possible.

Allergies Gone!

It’s been almost four months with regular adjustments and I’m symptom free. I have not used any meds, drops or spray.

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

I have had hay fever since I was a teenager. Living in the Poconos in Northeastern Pa since retiring 20 years ago, has been a challenge. The sneezing, itching, and sleepless nights started lasting longer than a summertime allergy. I stopped playing bridge and attending many social events because I didn’t want to drive knowing I would have sneezing attacks on the 25+ mile trips to anywhere. My constant reply to invitations was, sorry, my allergies are bothering me.

When we came to Steamboat for the winter and occasionally for a few weeks in the summer during these years, within a few days all symptoms were gone. That is until this winter. All my symptoms persisted. I was still using over the counter meds, nose spray and eye drops. Weeks passed with no relief. When Dr Kevin heard me say I couldn’t believe my allergies were just as bad here as in Pa., he said he said I needed to get under principled chiropractic care and that adjustments would help. My reply was disbelief.

He adjusted me and that night I slept thru the night. It’s been almost four months with regular adjustments and I’m symptom free. I have not used any meds, drops or spray.  To me this is a miracle; my friends will be surprised!

I was able to meet my goal of 18 hikes this past summer.

Being Subluxation-Free/misalignment-free is so important for the body to function properly!

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

I was diagnosed with advanced osteoporosis in 2000 and x-rays showed scoliosis in my lower back. I was not in a lot of pain, but I was concerned I wouldn’t be able to walk someday if I didn’t continue to seek chiropractic care. Being Subluxation-Free/misalignment-free is so important for the body to function properly!

When I first came to Thrival Mode, I was very impressed. I like that Dr. Kevin and Dr. Keri straighten my spine without twisting and cracking! The office is inviting, and the doctors are caring, supportive and thorough. After six months of treatment I noticed a calmness in my nervous system and I was able to meet my goal of 18 hikes this past summer with the maximum being ten miles with no knee pain. I also noticed fewer calluses on my feet and my itchy skin stopped! Not only has chiropractic care positively impacted my life, but I also have family members who receive care for headaches and stress.

I recommend Thrival Mode! Regular adjustments, great nutrition, exercise and supplementing is important for optimal health. This is a responsibility for all people and this office encourages all of these things!

Healing over thirty years of migraines.

After two weeks of care, I noticed a huge difference!

READ FULL TESTIMONIAL

I have experienced migraines for over thirty years and over the last year, my headaches and neck pain have been increasing. Over the years, I have tried acupuncture and medication, but neither offered long-term relief for my pain.

When I first came into Thrival Mode, I was skeptical but hopeful! The team was friendly and upbeat and the practice seemed to be very progressive. After two weeks of care, I noticed a huge difference! My neck pain decreased considerably, and so did my migraines. Over the course of my chiropractic care, the range of motion in my neck has increased and my body feels lighter. The frequency of migraines has decreased and I am also sleeping better.

I would recommend Thrival Mode and gentle, specific chiropractic care to anyone who is sick, suffering or in pain.
