❝I LOVE Dr. Erin! She is such a caring practitioner! She was very thorough with making a diagnosis and I have felt so much better since starting to see her. Not only is she concerned with your spinal health, but your overall health and well-being. She has taken the time to find supplements to help me and has given me stretches to help my adjustments last longer. My 5 year old loves seeing her too! She is excellent with adults and children. The office has great hours and the receptionist, Missy, is AWESOME!! Great job to everyone there, would recommend people to your office over and over!
❝I initially met Dr. Shepherd a few years ago when I was having problems with back pain. In the meantime, I had been suffering with numbness and tingling in my right hand. The pain and discomfort would come and go but became increasingly problematic. I decided to see a specialist who diagnosed my symptoms as carpel tunnel syndrome and recommended surgery. Not certain that my condition warranted surgery, I chose to consult another opinion. The second specialist saw also determined that my bad case of carpel tunnel required surgery. Seeing that my only option was surgery, I reluctantly scheduled the procedure for the following week. Just days before my scheduled surgery, I happened to have an appointment with Dr. Shepherd, whom I told about my upcoming surgery. Dr. Shepherd examined my wrist and asked me to give him one month to treat my wrist and eliminate my pain. He simply suggested I give chiropractic treatment on my wrist a try and postpone the surgery temporarily. I reluctantly agreed. I was skeptical that Dr. Shepherd could help me avoid surgery, but his treatment sounded much more agreeable than surgery at the time. I called and postponed my surgery. After seeing Dr. Shepherd just a few times in two weeks, my wrist pain was noticeably less. Within our one-month trial period, my wrist pain was completely gone. Seven months have passed and I remain symptom free! The pain, tingling and numbness have been eliminated and my wrist and I feel great! I am very grateful to Dr. Shepherd for treating me holistically and helping me to avoid invasive surgery.
❝In 2010 I starting having some very strange symtoms. Nymbness in the right side of my face, a feeling of drooling, right ear problems and a twitching eye. Over the course of the year I saw neurologists (several), infectious disease doctors, ear, eyes and throat, and a host of others. Suffered through every test they could think of to give me. I exhaused my deductable on my insurance, spent a large amount of money in co-pay and reached my maximum spending for they year. And yet at the end no difference.
My co-worker, who is a patient of Dr. Shepherd's suggested I go see him. Normally this would not have even been an option assuming there could be no link. Upon her assistance I went.
It is now 2012 and my symptoms so rairly appear that I can cont them on one hand. And if they do appear they are so mild it does not affect my daily routine at all. It is amazing what these services have done for me. I truly want to thank my co-worker and Dr. Shepherd for doing what so many others could not.
❝I met Dr. Erin through my trainer at Snap Fitness. She was there doing foot scans during an informational meeting at my gym. After doing a foot scan and talking with Dr. Erin, I decided to bring myself and my daughter to see Dr. Erin. Myself for my lower back pain and my daughter to help clear up her ear infections and improve her over-all health. My daughter has not had a single ear infection since we started seeing Dr. Erin. Although my back isn't completely better, it has slowly started getting better. On top of bettering mine and my daughter's health and pain levels, Dr. Erin and the staff at Shepherd Chiropractic are very friendly, professional, and informative. I feel very lucky and am grateful for all the help that I have received from Dr. Erin and the staff!
❝Dear Dr. Shepherd
I am writing to let you know what you have done for my family. For you may not remember, but a mother never forgets.
A mother never forgets when her child is in pain. When another and another doctor says you must give your child immunizations it is the law. Steven stopped breathing and turned blue but it did not matter to them only to this mother which is me.
Dr. Shepherd you stepped in and said it not only matters to you but also to me. So you told me they are not telling you the truth, and gave me a book to read, and a one page form to fill out. You showed me that I did not have to hurt my child with the poisons from the immunizations, and you saved my child's life. How can I ever thank you enough.
Now you would think that would be where it all stops, but it is not. For another child of mine kept getting ear infections, and the doctor kept giving her antibiotics. I was concerned that they were going to put tubes in her ears. Again, you stepped in and gave me something to place in her formula once a day. Jenny has not had an ear infection in 9 years.
Every time I have a concern, a question, or any other problem, you have always been there to help me, to guide me, and to heal my family and myself.
I would not know how to express my ever loving gratitude, so with all my heart, I thank you for everything you have done.
❝It was back in February, the 7th I believe, that I had a very stiff neck. My wife made an appointment with Dr. Erin. So I went, under protest. I was 72 years old and had never been to a chiropractor and thought I never would. A happy wife is a happy life so I went. Dr. Erin checked my neck took digital X-Rays and showed them to me. Since that first visit my neck improved dramatically and I was able to golf and swim on my 73rd birthday, in Arizona, just one month later as promised by Dr. Erin
I have not felt this good in quite some time and am feeling great not only in my neck, but overall physically much, much better. Dr. Erin thanks to you my whole health has been improved. Thank you. I'm now a believer in chiropractic care.
❝I started chiropractic care in 2002 with Dr. Shepherd. At that time, my symptoms included blurred vision, tingling and numbness on the right side of my face, pain on the right side of my neck and shoulder, and no balance when walking. Dr. Shepherd was very thorough in his assessment of my condition, with a battery of medical tests, so as to rule out anything medical. With the adjustment of my atlas and other spinal adjustments my symptoms disappeared. I know from my care at Dr. Shepherd's office that chiropractic care is vital to my health and well-being.
❝I came to Dr. Erin because I fell down the stairs and was unable to walk. Within several visits the pain became tolerable and my mobility improved. I felt so much better so fast! I mentioned to Dr. Erin that I had experienced plantar fascitis and foot pain for a year and a half that wasn't helped with by the traditional methods with a foot specialist. I tried cortisone shots, a sleeping boot, and physical therapy with no real changes. After seeing Dr. Erin I could stand, walk, and sit for longer periods of time. She did in 6 months what medical doctors could not do in one and a half years!
My body feels healthier! I can tell my entire body benefits from adjustments. I have less back pain, fewer headaches, better posture, and virtually no foot pain. We love Dr. Erin and believe in her and this practice so much. I entrusted my husband and all of our young children to her care! God Bless!
❝I suffered from migraine headaches for 2 1/2 years, had severe allergies, and was on antibiotics for 2 years due to my lowered immune system this made the situation even worse, my body couldn't defend itself. I has seen 15 doctors ranging from my family's general practitioner, to acupuncture, and in an act of desperation, even saw a psychic healer. In the 2 years before finding Dr. Shepherd, the pain was so severe, I spent most of the nights crying, and the days in the doctors offices. I was terrified I had a tumor and thought I'd never have a normal life. I was only 16 years old and I was always in a bad mood because I felt miserably. I had seen a chiropractor before, but he didn't have the specialized x-rays or exercise maneuvers.
After my first visit and adjustment, I felt more relief than anyone had ever given me. I cried I was so happy. I've been seeing Dr. Shepherd for over 2 years, upon his recommendation I went to holistic services, for a nutrition plan, I also do special manuevers for my neck problems. I haven't been on antibiotics since my first visit. This winter I had only one bad cold, and when flu season came around, I didn't get it. Thanks to Dr. Shepherd I live a better than normal life. I can't put into words what he has done for me. He's changed my life immeasurably.
❝Before coming to Shepherd Chiropractic I had daily headaches as well as daily stomach pains. I also frequently had neck pain and stiffness as well as knee pain. I would frequently have to lie down in an effort to relieve headaches and could no longer run because of my knees. I experienced this for about 3-4 years. I tried taking pain medications and going to specialty doctors for my knees and stomach.
After participating in chiropractic care with Dr. Erin I haven't had any neck stiffness and headaches are a rarity now. The pain in my knees and stomach have also decreased significantly. This has helped immensely with school starting - no more headaches to disrupt my study time!
❝Matt had chronic ear infections since he was two weeks old. He was taking antibiotics for his first 1 1/2 years of life, even for preventative measures.
I took Matt to a ear, nose, and throat specialist a couple different times and it was suggested to me that he should have tubes put in his ears. I didn't want to go that route, but I wanted Matt off the antibiotics. It was at this time that someone mentioned to me to take Matt in to see a Chiropractor. My husband and I have been to chiropractors before, but I had no idea they could treat ear infections.
In December of 1991, we took Matt to a chiropractor. Because of insurance reasons, we switched to Dr. Dean Shepherd. He worked with Matt on a more regular basis. Dr Shepherd recommended Matt drink goat's milk to aid in the healing process.
It was probably within a 1-2 month period when Matt's ears were healthy with no ear infections reoccurring. Matt now sleeps soundly and is less irritable. I am very happy that I didn't have to resort to tubes.
❝I was experiencing pain in my upper and lower back and also a lot of stiffness in my neck. It was very difficult to even find a comfortable position to lay in. On top of that, my job as a CNA requires a lot of lifting and strain on my back and posture, especially having to be on my feet for such long hours.
I was experiencing this pain for about a year and a half with it progressively getting worse. I've tried topical relief gel like Biofreeze and over the counter pain medication like Advil and Tylenol, which would only provide temporary relief. Over time this only caused me to continue putting strain on my back and posture.
I feel significantly better after my chiropractic care with Dr. Erin. I feel more flexible and stronger. While the topical relief ointment still helps at times when my job is demanding physically, I no longer rely on Advil or Tylenol to sleep or make it through my daily activities. My overall comfort has significantly improved.
❝I would like to take the time to thank you for all the help you have given me over the past month. I came to you with severe neck pain that would radiate to my temples, forehead, and the top of my head whenever I turned my head. I also had vertigo along with severe depression.
I went through emergency open-heart surgery on August 16th, 2002. This was my fourth open-heart surgery. The surgery lasted for ten hours and left me with the above problems. I went to a Psychotherapist who prescribed Zoloff to treat the depression. I went to my family doctor who prescribed Tylenol 3 and referred me to a neurologist who then sent me to the pain clinic at Waukesha Hospital. I received four injections of steroids in my first and third vertebra. None of these treatments were successful. Their last suggestion was surgery and I responded, "no way".
In early October of this year I went to Dr. Shepherd and asked for his help. On my first visit he took x-rays and after consultation he said he would treat me with a conservative procedure. After six treatments the pain in my neck was reduced by 80 per-cent, I no longer was handicapped with vertigo and I was completely free of depression. I could now enjoy my normal quality of life.
My wife and I will be going to Florida to spend the winter on October 17th. I have only one more visit scheduled with Dr. Shepherd tomorrow and I am delighted to say I'm almost free of pain.
