I’ve been struggling with the pain of plantar fasciitis for several years. I didn’t want injections so I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Carlson. She helped with my plantar fasciitis with Kineseo tape and suggested several exercises that I could do at home. The taping along with exercises and adjustments have made a huge difference in my foot pain. Thank You!
I was running in my first-ever season of cross country and noticed pain in my shins. My coach said I had shin splints. My friend also got shin splints at the same time. I visited Dr. Carlson and had my first ever adjustment and then Dr. Carlson manipulated my legs and my shins and after a couple treatments I was running again in a week. My friend was out for three weeks.
Kinesio taping really works! In preparing for 2012 Tallcorn Handball tournament, I developed severe knee pain limiting my mobility. On the night before the tournament started, Dr. Carlson taped my knee. I was not hopeful, but was amazed when I could now play without pain. Completed the tournament with the one time tapping and, with exercise, I am now pain free. Thanks Doc!
I pulled my back muscles and I limped into Dr. Carlson's office with pain about 7 or an 8. Dr. Carlson performed my first ever adjustment and spent some quality time on my lower back. When she was finished, I walked out of her office, upright, with pain only a 1 or a 2. She also prescribed a few exercises to strengthen my core and prevent more recurrences. Now I visit at least once a month. If I’m experiencing pain in a shoulder, knee, hip or back, Dr. Carlson has a way of knowing about the pain in those areas, without even being told. She is truly amazing!
“When I read Dr. Carlson’s web page I knew she was the one I wanted to go to when I moved to Des Moines in 2013. One of the reasons is that she adjusts limbs, not just spine & neck. Very thorough and forth coming with health information and stretching exercises to help adjustments hold. She is a lovely person with a lovely family.”
“Dr. Allison is great! I have been to many chiropractors and none have tried to get to the bottom of my issues like Dr. Allison. She even looked into my diet and doesn’t just adjust, she finds the problem first before adjusting. This has been the best chiropractor I have been to and I have had D1 chiropractors work on me, being a D1 athlete.”
