My chiropractic story is one that I am willing to share with anyone who will listen. I have been faithfully attending Louisiana Chiropractic and Wellness Center for 8 months. I am dedicated to improving my health through chiropractic. They do an excellent job of making me feel comfortable. My body has been put through a series of adjustments, stretches, and exercises. I cannot say enough how great my body feels. When I go to bed at night, my rest is so peaceful. Before I started getting these treatments, I was restless and had a lot of pain in my body at night. Lastly, I would definitely recommend this center and its wonderful staff to anyone who may inquire about body wellness. I know thus far I have had a life changing experience and I am happy with the results. I am so looking forward to my next visit! I am on my way to not only a healthy tomorrow, but a healthy future!
Paula M., Lake Charles
Since coming to Louisiana Chiropractic and Wellness I have experienced a reduction in the constant numbness that I had in my leg and pain in my lower back. The pain and numbness I experienced was a result of an epidural accident that happened while delivering my first child 13 years ago. I just learned to live with the pain and discomfort. I was given the opportunity to come in last May, and I came with no expectations. I was extremely surprised to find that after a few short weeks I was feeling so much better with less numbness and pain! I feel more relaxed and sleep better and I look forward to coming to my appointments each week!

I started coming to Louisiana Chiropractic & Wellness Centers in May of 2011. I had been suffering with a pinched nerve and pulled muscles in my neck. I am a teacher, and all school year I was suffering with pain radiating down my right leg, and headaches almost daily. How could I be an effective teacher and mother with all this pain? After about a month and a half of receiving adjustments and therapy to my spine and hips Ihave no pain in my neck, back, leg, or head. I feel like I have more energy, a better posture, and more mobility in my neck. I decided that if I don’t take care of myself, how can I enjoy my family and be an effective teacher.
