The care and professionalism at South Boulder Healing is exceptional. Their dedication to holistic healing of back and neck injuries is second to none, and I recommend them to anyone seeking to restore pain-free movement and better health! Chiropractic care changed my life!
I started seeing Dr Elsea when my back pain threatened to make me inactive and possibly cancel an overseas trip. After the initial visit where she took X-rays, she carefully and comprehensively explained my situation and cause of the pain – compressed 5th lumbar, probably due to injury sustained in a motorcycle accident 14 years ago. She said it could be corrected with adjustments and some physical therapy. After the first adjustment, I felt 100% better! The immediate, sharp pain was gone and I had a much better outlook for full recovery. Now, two months on with regular appointments, the pain has not returned and I have confidence that I can continue doing the things I love for a long time.
Thanks, Dr Elsea!
When I first came to South Boulder Chiropractic, my back was in constant pain. As an avid trail runner here in Boulder, I was forced to limit my time on the trails, which only added to my frustration of the situation.
After I left my initial appointment, I had virtually no pain. The results were instantaneous. Knowing we were not done, I continued to come back twice per month for three months. Each time, I came thru the door better than the last. Now, the issues I was having have receded and I am pain free 24/7. As a result, I have returned to trail running and look forward to a great running season ahead.
Given the results and where I started, I will now come back for maintenance about once per month to ensure I stay healthy – this journey was all about the expertise of Dr. Mary Elsea and her knowledge of her craft !
Thank you Dr. Elsea !
I had been having neck and upper back pain for years and ignored it. An EENT had told me that my neck muscles were so stiff they impeded drainage and were the cause of my sinus infections and headaches. Visits to a massage therapist only provided temporary relief so when the pain and stiffness began to progress downward to my lower spine and I was having trouble walking, I went to South Boulder Chiropractic. I saw Dr. Elsea and she showed me that my spine was out whack, my cervical discs were compressed, and arthritis in the vertebrae due to a few car and bicycle accidents in my early 20s. She explained treatment regimen in detail and made certain to answer all of my questions. Dr. Elsea instructed me on a variety of exercises and stretching to help with my posture in conjunction with spinal manipulation. Relief was immediate.
For the first time in a year I would awaken in the morning and be able to move my head and neck without pain. In addition, I have not had a single sinus head ache since I began to see Dr. Elsea whereas they had been a twice weekly occurrence.
I am very grateful for Dr. Elsea’s expertise and caring nature. My quality of life has improved dramatically; I have more energy and motivation now that I am no longer in constant discomfort. I really do owe it all to her.
I have seen both Dr. Decker and Dr. Elsea and feel that both really care about me and my health. Routine wellness adjustments help keep me from experiencing headaches and hip pain like I did before.
I’d been having trouble with my lower back for several years. Nothing horrible. Nothing that kept me from my daily activities. But I continued to receive reminders that something was wrong, especially when I’d work in the garden or take groceries out of the car.
Throughout my experience as a patient of Dr. Elsea’s, I have been treated with utmost respect and patience. Every aspect of my care has been thoroughly explained and all questions have been answered to my fullest satisfaction. I have felt consistent improvement with longer periods of time pain free. I am grateful for her generous support and caring interest.
Six months ago, I was involved in a car accident. I was rear-ended, and suffered a whiplash injury and a sprained neck. The days that followed were frightening and disorienting, as I struggled to understand insurance procedures, find treatment, and understand my injuries.
Shortly after the accident, I was referred to Dr. Elsea. I found her to be very knowledgeable and competent regarding the nature of my injuries, insurance procedures, a treatment plan, and coordinating care between multiple providers. I would be hard-pressed to have found a more competent, caring, and talented healer to facilitate my recovery. I believe she has a genuine interest in the overall well-being of her patients, as exhibited by her concern not only for my back pain, but for my day-to-day life as it has been affected by my injuries.
I am writing for two reasons. First, I wish to thank the doctors at South Boulder Chiropractic for reinvigorating my health and my hope. Second, I’d like to share with people how chiropractic care has positively affected my life. Chiropractic care has helped me to feel more comfortable in my body, not only because pain is alleviated through regular adjustments, but because my overall sense of health and well-being has increased. I hardly get colds anymore, which is great since any respiratory irritation can exacerbate my asthma.
I am convinced that chiropractic care has helped the health of my whole life – stemming from a newfound feeling of hope that has emerged through the health and revitalization of my body. For all this and more, I wish to thank the doctors and staff of South Boulder Chiropractic!
After my first visit to South Boulder Chiropractic, I noticed a big difference from the chiropractic care I’ve had in the past. I felt that your office and service was more personal and comfortable at the same time. You took time to understand the problems I was having and helped me to identify the potential causes. I received great treatment, friendly advice and most importantly, I feel better as a result. To date, I’ve received chiropractic care from Dr. Elsea and Dr. Decker, as well as massage therapy from Lauren. I highly recommend you all. I am also a believer in preventative care, so I will definitely be visiting again. Thanks for all you’ve done.
I am writing regarding my rewarding experience with Dr. Elsea and my first true dealing with chiropractic. I have had a lot of pain associated with a chronic autoimmune condition. As a result of that pain, I had trouble sleeping. The lack of sleep seemed like it really stressed out my neck, mid-back, and lower back. It was hard to do everyday activities and life was pretty miserable.
After only a few adjustments, my back pains have been nearly alleviated. I have more feeling in my feet (which for several years have felt numb), and it is terrific that I can actually start exercising again and really enjoy almost any range of movement.
I was referred to Dr. Elsea following a car accident in which I suffered mild whiplash. Under her gentle, expert care, pain was alleviated and recovery was swift. During treatment, she shared her extensive knowledge about healing, stretching, headaches, and sinuses, to name a few topics. She generously imparts her knowledge, has compassion, and gives personal attention. Her skills are highly recommended and greatly appreciated.
Just a note to thank Dr. Elsea for the excellent chiropractic care she has provided me. I saw her for a frozen shoulder with limited range of motion, among other things. I also had high blood pressure. I heeded her careful teaching regarding nutrition and have completely changed my eating habits. My blood pressure is normal, I have full range of motion in my shoulder, and I am excercising daily, something I never did before. In short, I am probably healthier than I have ever been in my life.
I had been feeling generally ill for almost a year, and was referred to Dr. Elsea. She listened, she heard, and she took my sense of my own health seriously. She was thorough, and asked questions and put pieces of my health history together with a meaningful perspective I had not seen before. She let me know that improvement would not come overnight, but that it would come if I were persistent. She took time with me, and consistently took my questions and my own insights seriously. I never felt discounted or unheard. I have felt that she was caring for my whole person, not just an injured part.
My health and my optimism have increased significantly. My sense of my own ability to influence my health has increased. I know I don’t have to wait until a disease becomes so apparent no one can ignore it to get help. Thank you for your efforts, your commitment, your clear sense of caring, and your skill. I know I would not be able to function as fully as I can today, nor enjoy life the way I can now, without your skill, insight, and compassion.
I injured myself on the job. Not understanding the full extent of my injury, I wished it away and found myself chronically ill nine months later. Simultaneously, other symptoms seemed to seep into my life and day-to-day functions insidiously became disturbed. My health had taken a turn for the worse.
Dr. Elsea assisted and persistently attempted to heal my body as an entire being. Much attention was given to my understanding of the injury, and what would be required of me to accomplish a complete healing.
Her integrity and dedication are special assets that are integrated into all stages of treatment. Her knowledge and experience provide answers to my many questions and solutions to my problems. I am grateful for her help and consistency. I continue to feel better every day.
Dr. Mary – thank you for giving my life back to me! I had endured pain from a neck injury for more than a year before a friend referred you to me. During that time, my entire life was on hold – I couldn’t participate in sports, work in my garden, or even ride in a car without feeling pain and discomfort.
I had never seen a chiropractor before, and I was skeptical. Like most people, I was hoping for a quick fix. However, after working with you for a short time, I made remarkable progress. Now I have no pain in my neck and back, and I’ve resumed most of my favorite activities. In fact, my husband and I are going to take golf lessons, and I don’t anticipate any problems swinging those golf clubs!
Dr.Elsea was very patient explaining my injury to me. She was extremely professional, knowledgeable and sensitive in her adjustments. Thank you for getting me back on my feet!!!”
