"As a busy mom of 4 little ones and recently postpartum, I was experiencing a lot of pain in several areas. As a health professional myself, I had done a lot of research and had used many conventional routes without a whole lot of relief. My care with Dr. Fortin has provided not only a great amount of relief but also given me increased mobility, better posture, and improved alignment. Dr. Fortin and her staff were so welcoming and accommodating. Dr. Fortin's faith in healing also strengthened my own faith that my healing was possible."
"Starting care at Meadow Chiropractic Clinic has improved my quality of life in so many ways. I am sleeping better at night, have increased my flexibility, and have even been able to reduce my anxiety meds since starting care with Dr. Fortin. I would definitely recommend Meadow Chiropractic Clinic to anyone looking to improve their health!"
"Very early in 2021, I began treatment at Meadow Chiropractic Clinic. The clinic was recommended to me by a family friend who was getting treated there. I was going to physio, but it was not helping with the episode I was experiencing--which was strong sciatic pain with numbness and tingling in my left side and buttock/ tailbone area which affected my ability to sit, walk, and to sleep. My neck, upper back, and left hip were also causing me quite a lot of pain.
The x-rays that were done on my first visit were a very important factor in my choice to continue treatment throughout these past few months. It was evident that there were some significant issues with my head position and spine misalignment which most likely were there a long time from past injuries.
My progress was slower than I anticipated and hoped, though it was going better than Dr. Fortin expected. Everyone's body reacts differently to treatment. For me, after each treatment I would feel worse for a day or so and then improve until the next appointment. So, that is why I say that the x-rays made me realize I needed to persevere as my body would heal in its own time as the spine was becoming aligned. Dr. Fortin was always encouraging and always assured me that my body was healing! She also explained that the healing process is not a straight line upwards; it has dips and curves-- which also helped me understand that all was going along as expected.
I was initially going 3x a week for treatment and as of today, progressed to 1x every two weeks :)
I have seen major changes in my body happen. My sciatic pain, numbness/ tingling is gone in my leg and foot for the most part and while sitting has improved a great deal, it is not 100% yet, but I can see that healing is continuing. My neck pain and upper back pain has also been rectified. It has been about 3 months since I have needed pain medicine to cope :)
Other changes I have noticed in just the past several weeks are an improvement in my happiness level. I find myself laughing more often, joking more often, and I have been able to sleep better--without any sleep aid for the past two weeks. I am confident that as my spine continues to stay stabilized, my health will continue to improve. All of our good habits work together to create health; eating well, staying active, and feeding the mind with good things are very important...these things I strive to do as well.
I highly recommend this treatment for others who are looking to have their health improve by allowing the brain to send unobstructed messages to your body."
"After just a few visits with Dr. Fortin, I was able to stand straighter and had a significant decrease in back pain and stiffness."
"Prior to coming to Meadow, I was experiencing daily pain and discomfort that no other doctor, nor medical professional, could treat. Dr. Fortin guided me through her treatment plan and explained in detail the areas of my spine that needed focus. Within 4 weeks I was feeling a world of change. Today, I can say Dr. Fortin has given me my movement and happiness back. She has given me a chance to enjoy life pain free. I am forever grateful!"
"I came to the clinic after experiencing severe lower back pains and difficulty to walk due to pain in my feet and ankles. After getting the x-rays, Dr. Fortin began the treatment I needed. As my problem was from many years of working as a car mechanic, it took a lot of treatments to start feeling better but the Dr. persevered and I now feel the improvements. It was certainly worth the effort to keep getting the needed treatments."
"With the help of Meadow Chiropractic Clinic my health has improved. Less pain, better movement, and overall feeling better. Thanks so much Dr. Fortin."
"Excellent service, very friendly staff. Very professional. Dr. Esther and staff are very welcoming and helpful. Very thorough assessment and treatment plan. Identified issues I had for years that created other health issues. Would recommend this service."
"After struggling with hip and back pain for 9 years and trying many avenues of treatment, I've finally found someone who has helped. Dr. Fortin has made a huge difference in lowering my pain and improving my quality of life!"
"My back seems to have improved greatly. She (Dr. Fortin) is very good at her job and very friendly."
"Before going to Meadow Chiropractic Clinic, I had experienced back and leg pain for over two years. I've seen doctors and physiotherapists but nothing worked long term. When I went to see Esther she was very thorough when trying to figure out what was causing my pain. She made a plan of treatment for me and she made it very easy to understand. I've been doing treatment for almost 2 months and I feel so much better. I get excited over coming to my appointments and seeing my progress each time and that is all because of my experience at Meadow Chiropractic Clinic! " :)
"Over the last few months, I have noticed so many small, yet significant improvements in my overall health. Dr. Fortin provides a much more wholistic approach to chiropractic medicine, reducing stress, alleviating muscle and joint pain, and so much more. I feel my overall health has improved since seeing Dr. Fortin!"
