Testimonials for our chiropractors – Dr. Jo and Dr. Andria

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results – Albert Einstein

My name is Rick and I became a patient/believer of Live Well Chiropractic in the fall of 2009. I have spent the last 15 years with chronic neck, shoulder and back problems. I felt like at age 54 I had the body of an 80 year old man. I have spent all that time bouncing between doctors, MRIs’ and physical therapist. I would follow all the procedures allowed by insurance, and at times I would feel pretty good. Eventually though it would comeback as bad as ever and we would start the cycle all over again. I just kept doing what the insurance company allowed.
Then a miracle happened! I was invited to an open house at Live Well Chiropractic and met Dr. Jo. I attended the open house and was the most skeptical person in attendance. I was able to ask all the tough questions that had been bothering me through all the years of on again off again pain. Dr. Jo didn’t shy away from any of my questions. She explained that when things are out of alignment and you do things I had been doing that I am going to get temporary relief from my symptoms. She went on to explain that when your body is in alignment and you do those things that are recommended, those things tend to be more permanent. I told her all my negative feelings about chiropractic treatments including cost and insurance or lack of coverage. Dr. Jo didn’t bat an eye as she explained a treatment plan. The first thing she told me is that they would contact my insurance company and find out my coverage and work within those limits, (boy what a relief) and that there would be no surprises. How many doctors offer to do that? Dr. Jo told me that it would take approximately 16 treatments and I would be on the road to permanent recovery. Well it has been 11 months and I haven’t felt this good in 15 years. I have lost 25 pounds because I finally have felt good enough to exercise. I have gone from feeling like the body of an 80 year old to the body of a 40 year old and I have Dr. Jo and her unbelievable team to thank for that.

My only regret about feeling so great is that I only get to go in once a month now. No matter how bad you feel going in you in, just walking in the door and being greeted by this caring group you start to feel better. That is the finest and most caring group you will ever meet. They have truly become friends that care about you and your family. Try to find that relationship anywhere else.

The team at Live Well Chiropractic is the best!!!

So to anyone out there that has the same fears and concerns that I had, please rest assured that you cannot be in any better hands then the team at Live Well Chiropractic.
To Dr. Jo and team, thank you for giving me my life back. No more chronic pain and no more fear that it’s coming back.
Thank you for everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Your friend and customer for life,
– Rick S.

A Testimonial related to Pregnancy Back Pain:

 “In my second pregnancy, I had severe sciatic and lower back pain. I could barely do regular household chores, or care for my two year old son. I was seeing Dr. Jo for chiropractic adjustments, when she suggested acupuncture. I was skeptical, but I gave it a try. The next morning, after acupuncture, I woke and the pain had disappeared…I am now a believer!”
– Nicole F.  (Chaska, MN)

A Testimonial from Studio L2 Pilates Training Center:

“Dr. Mandy, you are INCREDIBLE!!! Thank you thank you thank you for taking such great care of my pilates students (and my husband!).  Everyone commented on how wonderful, kind and engaging you are — and give amazing massages, too!  I have a feeling you’ll be getting some new patients!”
-Laura L.  Eden Prairie, MN

A Testimonial for Dr. Jo – From car accidents and sports injuries to pregnancy and postpartum care:

“I have been a patient at Live Well Chiropractic since 2010 receiving chiropractic treatment from Dr. Jo for car accidents and sport related injuries. Most recently my chiropractic treatment plan was for pregnancy and postpartum care.  Throughout my pregnancy I continued to see Dr. Jo on a regular basis which I feel contributed to limited back and hip pain while I was pregnant.  In addition, Dr. Jo worked with me to help reduce the pain associated with pregnancy carpal tunnel and overall swelling. Towards the end of my pregnancy Dr. Jo worked on specific pressure points and used acupuncture to help start labor.  Since the birth of my son I have continued to see Dr. Jo to help realign my body from the stress of pregnancy and delivery which has contributed to a quicker postpartum recovery.

Thank you, Dr. Jo for making the past 10 months as comfortable as possible.

– Heather L.


Another Testimonial about Pre and Post Natal Care:

I went to Live Well my entire pregnancy for prenatal physical care. This was my second pregnancy so my pain was much more and different than the first. Being adjusted once per week with the doctors here made my pregnancy much more tolerable. The atmosphere along with the wonderful care they provide is amazing! Thank you for getting me through a rough pregnancy!!

– Julie J.


A Testimonial for Dr. Andria from a family of Five:

Dr. Andria and the Team at Live Well are wonderful! Each member of our family of five see Dr. Andria. We had our newborn daughter seen a week after she was born to ensure she was properly aligned. We have found it also reduces fussiness. Our boys play hard and are hard on their bodies and if properly aligned they can grow as should.

– Emily B.


A SWEET Testimonial for Dr. Andria

Many happy moments come from us at Live Well. My husband and I struggled with getting pregnant. Dr. Andria suggested weekly chiropractic treatments to help with fertility. After a few months of care with Andria, I came for my weekly adjustment and decided to take a pregnancy test before my treatment… and I was pregnant!

I continued with my treatments until my last week of pregnancy when Andria did acupuncture and made me go into labor! We had our little girl 8 hours later. Thank you Live Well for the help getting Adella Fair Barber.

Expertise in Healing and Recovery?

I am very thankful for the care, and level of expertise at LiveWell. They have done a great job of helping me heal and recover multiple times.

Chronic Hip and Back Issues?

I’ve been going to Live Well since 2013. I have a chronic hip and back issue that needs periodic maintenance.

My back recently locked up due to work and personal stress and I could barely walk, but Dr. Mandy had me much more mobile with less pain and inflammation within just 2 visits.

This center prepares the body for an adjustment, and offers post adjustment techniques to speed healing and reduce inflammation.

Very friendly place. They’re my go-to, whether I need occasional chiropractic care or monthly maintenance.

Thanks, Live Well Chiro!

Extra Muscle/Light Massage Work, Anyone?

Excellent provider. They are always on time and I never feel rushed. I love that they offer extra ‘muscle/light massage ‘ work before adjustments. It seems to help release tension. Cupping and acupuncture are great to have during the same visit when needed vs. scheduling another appointment. Dr. Andria is a gifted chiropractor. I’m thrilled to have found this clinic!

Scared of Chiropractors?

I was scared of chiropractors after a bad experience that happened years ago. This chiropractic clinic completely changed my perception. I’ve seen Dr. Jo, and Dr. Andrea, and was completely at ease with fantastic results! Highly recommend!!

Pregnancy, Car Accident, Sports and Work Related Ailments?

I have been a patient here for about nine years and they provide EXCELLENT care! The doctors have seen me through a number of issues: pregnancies, care after a car accident, sports- and work-related ailments. They are very thorough and intuitive, and I appreciate the wonderful care! Plus they are awesome with my kids. Everyone is so friendly and it is a joy to come here!

Massage and Cupping before Adjustment

Live Well goes above and beyond! I had tried a couple local chiropractors in the area and was not happy until I found Live Well.  The staff is wonderful and service is amazing! I especially enjoy the massage and cupping before the adjustment

An Athlete and Cupping.

I hadn’t been the the chiropractor in years, I found Live Well via Google and I am so thankful for a place like this. Dr. Mandy answered all my questions, made me feel comfortable, and I had cupping done along with my adjustment.
I’ve been training for a marathon and my body was all out of sorts, I felt immediate relief and my daughter said “you seem calmer” as we were walking out.
I highly highly highly recommend Live Well

Mom and Baby Love!

I saw Jo, Andrea and Mandy throughout my pregnancy. Not only did my body feel great but I left every appointment feeling relaxed and taken care of. I now go in with my baby and chiropractor days are our favorite! Jen loves him up while I get massaged and adjusted. He then gets adjusted and inevitably has a a “chiro” nap afterwards – which is the best one I get out of him all week! I tell all my friends to go. It’s truly like being at a spa! Because, well, you are!

Muscle Work & Cupping – 10 Star!

Absolutely 5 star service from the minute you walk in the door, until you walk out. Dr. Mandy is amazing. She has great technique, is so knowledgeable & very sweet. The muscle work and optional cupping is 100% priceless. I’ve never left a chiropractic appointment feeling so great in my 10+ years of receiving monthly chiropractic care. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Car Accident or Injury? Whiplash Prevention and Treatment!
Posted by mbsilbs in Acupuncture, Auto Accident, Chiropractic, Whiplash on 01 8th, 2019| icon3Comments Off on Car Accident or Injury? Whiplash Prevention and Treatment!

whiplash-GIFIt’s here!! Snow and ice can be beautiful, but the gorgeous winter weather makes for hazardous driving conditions! DRIVE CAREFULLY, but if you are involved in an accident, here are TIPS to PREVENT WHIPLASH injury! Our doctors at Live Well Chiropractic Spa & Acupuncture Center are skilled in the treatment of car accident related injuries including neck pain, stiffness, headaches, dizziness, shoulder and back pain. CLICK on the picture (on left) for all the details!  Call our office at (952) 746-8150 or drop us a note under “CONTACT US”.

Whiplash injury occurs when the body reacts to a deceleration or acceleration force by hyperflexion or hyperextension of the neck. Live Well Chiropractic Spa & Acupuncture Center specializes in treating whiplash injuries, car accident injuries and bicycle accident injuries. Whiplash injuries are very common in car accidents and occur, in part, due to the fact that the muscles do not have enough time to brace themselves.

If you have been involved in a car accident, whiplash injuries need to be taken very seriously. Because symptoms of a whiplash injury can take weeks or even months to manifest, it is easy to be fooled into thinking that you are not as seriously injured as you really are. Symptoms from a car accident and whiplash can include anything from radiating pain into the shoulder, elbow pain, wrist pain or hand pain, lower back pain, headaches, jaw pain and more.

Schedule your complimentary evaluation with Dr. Jo, Dr. Andria or Dr. Mandy at Live Well Chiropractic Spa & Acupuncture Center today!

Introducing: Electro-Acupuncture!
Posted by mbsilbs in Acupuncture, Chiropractic on 06 20th, 2017| icon3Comments Off on Introducing: Electro-Acupuncture!

electroacupuncture-300x189Introducing: Electroacupuncture

 Electroacupuncture is an acupuncture technique that has only recently come into use. Some scholars believe electroacupuncture was first used by physicians in France and Italy as far back as the early 1800s. Others claim that electroacupuncture wasn’t really developed until 1958, when acupuncturists in China began experimenting with it as a form of pain relief. Whatever the case, electroacupuncture is an increasingly popular form of treatment, and is used by practitioners of traditional acupuncture and Chinese medicine for a wide array of conditions such as chronic pain, muscular pain and myofascial dysfunction. It’s also extremely effective for relaxing overactive muscles, which contain trigger points. Our doctors are certified Acupuncturists and specifically trained in this new procedure.

What’s the difference between electroacupuncture and traditional acupuncture?

Electroacupuncture is quite similar to traditional acupuncture in that the same points are stimulated during treatment. As with traditional acupuncture, needles are painlessly inserted on specific points along the body. The needles are then attached to a device that generates continuous electric pulses using small clips. These devices are used to adjust the frequency and intensity of the impulse being delivered, depending on the condition being treated. Electroacupuncture uses two needles at time so that the impulses can pass from one needle to the other. Several pairs of needles can be stimulated simultaneously, usually for no more than 10-20 minutes at a time.

One advantage of electroacupuncture is that a practitioner does not have to be as precise with the insertion of needles. This is because the current delivered through the needle stimulates a larger area than the needle itself.

Does electroacupuncture hurt?

Patients may experience a tingling sensation while being treated with electroacupuncture, which is most likely due to the electric current. In most cases, however, the effect produced by the current is subsational; in other words, the tingling sensation will not be felt.

Watch a demonstration of traditional acupuncture for sinus pressure, headache, colds, or flu…
