I tell people that procedure is very gentle. Results could be felt after the first treatment. I like the thought and belief patterns of Dr. Stehmeier. They are refreshing. His workshops are useful and practical. Basically this is one doctors’ office I like to visit, the receptionist is very friendly and I enjoy our chats before seeing the doctor.
I would gladly recommend NUCCA as a gentle alternative treatment for anyone seeking chiropractic help. I personally found it to be a good experience, physically and mentally.
I have seen several different chiropractors over the last 34 years. No one has ever spent the amount of time with me that Dr. Stehmeier does. It is a total non evasive treatment with no manipulation. I have been coming for two and a half months and feel great improvement already.
I was unsure initially because it was new to me and my experience with regular chiropractic work was not always positive. My experience here was surprising even to me when I had a problem, Dr. Stehmeier adjusted my neck and I felt better, much better in a few minutes. The pain was replaced by a warm feeling on the side of my neck. The pain that I had was gone and it has never returned to such an extent. The minor aches and pains that I have now are more easily dealt with through massage, exercise, heat and etc. Before Dr. Stehmeier’s treatment I had continuous pain even with massage, exercise, acupuncture, etc. I hated the pain because there was no physical way to control it. Now I have control again and thankfully the energy and capacity do to all the things I want to do eg. Exercise and to do the things I have to do like work. I can breathe more easily knowing if I have a problem with my neck that there is help for me.
I sought help from Dr. Stehmeier because I had long term discomfort in my neck, low back and foot. I didn’t know what to expect and was somewhat apprehensive. I went ahead and had the treatment that the Dr. Said he would do. I did receive relief from my lower back spasm and numbness in my feet, my neck is greatly improved and I would recommend this treatment to others.
I was a little sceptical, but once I started feeling better I realized that it was a great method to help me get and keep my alignment.
NUCCA treatments were an immediate relief for the migraines, shoulder and neck discomfort that I had suffered consistently for a long period of time. Regular treatments also helped with my overall mobility, as well as leg and foot pain and discomfort. The treatments were very comfortable and the staff are very good. I had immediate and progressive results.
I have noticed a significant change, I have more energy and feel better overall. I am grateful for all the improvements that have been made. Prior to coming to see Dr. Stehmeier I suffered from a lot of headaches, stiffness in my neck and upper low back pain. Since coming to see him these have decreased significantly.
In the beginning I was very apprehensive about NUCCA care. But I was determined not to give up on myself and knew I would discover something sooner or later. That is when I came across the advertisement for Kelowna Wellness Clinic and researched the web site. I suffered from mild to severe headaches daily prior to NUCCA care. I rarely get headaches these days. Suffering from headaches is all consuming so living without the headaches has improved my life dramatically. I know that I need to be active in my healthcare and I have appreciated the care and knowledge I have received through Dr. Stehmeier.
In 2001 I was involved in a vehicular collision. Due to the accident my physician thought it best for me to see a chiropractor. My first impression was no, but sought help anyway due to my pain levels. Upon seeing a NUCCA chiropractor in Edmonton I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed the fact that I was taught about my health and alignment as well as how to keep my alignment, not just given an adjustment and sent on my way. I saw my parents going to a traditional chiropractor and they never seemed to get better, but I was holding my correction and maintaining it. So when my family and I moved to Vernon, I set out once again to find a NUCCA chiropractor and found Dr. Stehmeier and have not been happier knowing that my health is in good hands.
Firstly I am 73 years of age and went through a five way bypass operation and ended up with pain in my neck, shoulder and prior to that my right hip was aching which I thought was due to a blockage of an artery. I met Dr. Stehmeier in a local business and was curious about a strange looking device he had and was told that it measured ones frame for alignment, I had tried massage but was not satisfied with the results and was ready to try chiropractic hoping that I would find relief. So I set up an appointment with Joshua and after the first adjustment felt the pain diminish at least 90%, a couple more treatments set me straight and I am satisfied that it was money well spent. Please feel free to ask Dr. Stehmeier for my phone number if you would like to speak to me.
Before I met Dr. Stehmeier, living with pain was part of my everyday life. I relied on painkillers for relief. My feet and left knee hurt when waking and climbing stairs, my whole back area from head down to lower back had a dull ache. My head felt crooked, I felt my left leg was shorter than the other, I also had frequent headaches. My calves hurt when laying down. Now that I have been adjusted things are much better, I now enjoy going on walks, climbing stairs is still not easy for me but it will improve with time. With my back and neck feeling so much better it is a joy to get up and get going.
I have been going to a chiropractor regularly for years and I have never experienced these types of positive results in just a few short months with only three corrections. It has been years since I have not felt constant, regular back pain. I was beginning to feel that this was my “normal” and I now realize it was not! Although I still experience some occasional pain/discomfort, the improvement is immense. Thank You! Thank You! I am a Nucca supporter for sure.
Prior to starting treatment, I didn’t leave the house without taking Ibuprofen with me. I would take 600 mg. at a time sometimes. The source of pain was a bulging, herniated disc in my lower back. Although I still have the problem, since treatment I have not had to take medication for pain. A bonus has been the relief of pressure in my head that I had lived with for decades which was the result of a car accident. Thank you Dr. Stehmeier for helping me with these chronic problems.
Before my husband found Dr. Stehmeier I was in horrible pain all the time. I have been struggling with pain for over ten years. Every suggestion and diagnosis from all doctors and specialist was fibromyalgia. I was frustrated and could not find any pain relief through pills, massage, other forms of chiropractic, physiotherapy, acupuncture, acupressure, radial shock wave therapy, herbal supplements, diet, steroids and many more things that I have tried over the years. I am now able to do many things I thought that I have not been able to do before, and I now know my life will be the way I envisioned it to be. Thank you Dr. Stehmeier for helping me to get my life back.
I have been a patient of Dr. Stehmeier since September 2008. I consider myself very fortunate to be receiving the same method of treatment from him that I had been receiving from a chiropractor in Calgary for the past 20 years. The method of adjustment helps to keep me in a state of good health. My usual complaints of headaches, neck and shoulder ache as well as back ache, which in turn cause stress, disappear after the initial series of treatment. Follow up by regular period checkups keep me feeling the way I want to feel. For several years I travelled to Calgary to a chiropractor because there was not a chiropractor in Kelowna who used the NUCCA method. The NUCCA method is the only one in my experience with other chiropractors that helped my problems.
I had gone to chiropractors for over 25 years before I discovered a NUCCA Chiropractor. For the first time in my life I was free of headaches for long periods of time. The adjustments are so gentle that is feels like nothing is happening but just as soon as I sit up, my jaw relaxes, my shoulders relax, I feel pure relief that is immediate. It is so true that my whole back aligns when my head is on straight. Now I am more aware of when I need an adjustment because the difference is so dramatic.
