Read what our patients have to say about how their health and lives have improved with Dr. Holmes's care.
I love coming to see Dr. Holmes. I have been to many Chiropractors in my life and Dr. Holmes has been the one I have stuck with. I have a friend who is a Chiropractor but I choose to come here because of the GREAT treatment and care I get. After treatments and good advise my back has felt stronger. And this has helped me to do the things I want to do. I can always count on feeling good and recovering whenver I have a problem. - Phil H.
Before the supplement program I would have sharp stomach pain after eating certain foods. I also would have constant stomach acid and bloating. After a month of being on the program, my pain comes much less frequently and I hardly ever have the acid and bloating. - Emilee S.
When I came to see Dr. Holmes I had back pain. It limited my ability to work and made going to school a painful experience. This had been ongoing for 3 1/2 months, since my auto accident. The staff at Active Life Chiropractic is very friendly and helpful. I enjoy the treatments, they are relaxing. I can now move heavy objects again. I can go to work and come back without any pain. I can go to school and I can sit comfortably through all of my classes. I stand straighter and movement in my neck has improved. I am definitely more relaxed now. I would recommend Dr. Holmes any day! - Newell B.
I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis. I had spent a lot of time in pain. Before getting treatments, I hadn't been able to sleep through the night for several weeks. My headaches, and the pain in my legs, hip, and feet would not allow the simple pleasure of a good nights sleep. Not only was this affecting my personal life, but also my ability to handle my job. After a few weeks of treatment, my headaches totally went away. The pain in my legs and feet have been reduced by at least 95%. Not only am I sleeping at night, but also I have a more positive attitude about my life. Once again, I feel as if I'm in control of how I work and how I treat other people. The difference has been amazing. I fully recommend the treatments Dr. Holmes suggests. The treatments I have received have definitely change my life for the better. - Brenda D.
When I came to see. Dr. Holmes, I had been having lower back pain off and on for three years. I had been to pregnancy physical therapy using different exercises under water. I can now walk 3 miles, 3-4 times per week without any pain. I can also lift my baby without injuiry. I like not having to wait very long, if at all, to get into my scheduled appointment time. Dr. Holmes is great, and up-to-date on the latest studies. He is very easy to talk to and very thorough. - Robbie M.
When I first came to see Dr. Holmes I had a shooting pain in my back which limited my movement. I lived with this pain for a few weeks. Advil was my constant companion before visiting Dr. Holmes. I have been treated excellently by the staff, they were very flexible with my appointments, and very courteous. I have regained my range of movement and no longer experience any pain in my daily activities. Dr. Holmes' work has improved my nightly sleep. Dr. Holmes is a great Chiropractor! He is very thorough and understands the working of the skeletal system perfectly! - Daryl S.
I moved to Salt Lake in November. In January I threw out my back exercising and was in excrutiating pain. I knew I couldn't drive to my former Chiropractor in Ogden, so I picked up the phone book. Dr. Holmes was only several miles away, so I called him. Amazingly he said to come right over! He helped me greatly that day - even calling me later that night to ask how I was. In March I was in a serious car accident which totalled my car and left me feeling almost totalled myself. I saw Dr. Holmes the next day. He treated me daily and I was able to return to work in two weeks! Two months later I am getting ready for a kayaking trip. Dr. Holmes is kind, professional, knowledgable, and an expert in his practice. I couldn't ask for a better Doctor. The clinic is run extremely well, also. Susan is personable, pleasant and cheerful - even though I know at least I have come in grumpy due to my pain. I will be sorry to leave Dr. Holmes as I am moving to Chicago. Thank you so much. - Martha O.
I came to see Dr. Holmes for back pain. The pain had been going on for the last 4 1/2 years. It seemed to get worse and the pain became constant. My medical doctor had an x-ray taken and diagnosed me with arthritis and gave me drugs to treat it. There was nothing more that could be done. Since coming to Dr. Holmes my back pain is much improved. I sleep better at night. I can move better and activities have been less painful. At age 82 my quality of life has gotten better. I thank Dr. Holmes and his staff. - Beth C.
When I first came to see. Dr. Holmes I had shoulder, neck and back pain. Also some foot pain. This had been ongoing for 1-2 years. I had tried physical therapy and have been given pain pills. I was really impressed with Dr. Holmes bedside manner. I felt that my needs were listened to and that I was given great care. Susan was very helpful, kind and great to coordinate with. I liked the progression of treatment. I now don't have pain on a daily basis. This is great because my pain doesn't slow me down at work or at home. I have greater endurance in many of my activities. I think my improved posture helps me feel healthier and more confidant. Of course I would recommend Dr. Holmes! I have had a great experience and I think Dr. Holmes would work well for most people! - Amber L.
