"I am a physically active, grandmother of 9. I wanted to share my story with you. I discovered Rock Creek Spine and Rehabilitation Center at a talk given by Dr. Melissa Groelz at my place of work. Prior to that talk, I had been seeing another chiropractic group. I felt like I was climbing the rungs of a ladder only to fall back down to the bottom again. After hearing Dr. Melissa speak, I decided to check them out. I am so glad I did. From the moment I walked through their door, I felt that I was in good hands. She and Dr. Ryan really do care about you, how your feeling, and getting you better. I have no more headaches. My shoulders are relaxed, because the pain in my neck is gone. I can actually sleep through the night! It is so wonderful! Go and see Drs. Ryan and Melissa so that you can do the things you like to do, the things you enjoy, without the pain!" - Jo S.
"I am writing with the deepest gratitude, to not only thank you, but also to commend you on your outstanding work. The care that I received at Rock Creek Spine and Rehabilitation Center was truly unparalleled. Your dedication to your patients can bee seen, heard and felt in every visit. I have never witnessed nor experienced the degree of compassion with which you treat each patient until I met the two of you.
You have literally changed my life, and for that I am eternally grateful. Two years ago, at the age of only 21, I was in constant pain. Work, sports, driving and even sitting and sleeping had become extremely painful. After diagnosing the problem and treating it, I began to feel better after only a few weeks. After about three months I was completely pain free. The long term corrective care took over a year given the severity of my spine; however, knowing that I will be pain free and healthier for years to come makes me the happiest. It's scary to think back to how I lived from day to day with so much pain for so long.
Having been pain free for over a year, I wanted to thank you again for giving me my life back! I hope that you are doing well and I wish you the best for the future." - Robert C.
"As I complete a 12-week program to correct my neck spinal posture, I not only have the natural curvature in the cervical vertebrae, I have just realized that the occasional heart arrhythmias (short bursts of rapid heart beats followed by missed heart beats) occur less frequently. I wonder if Dr. Ryan's cervical treatment program had something to do with this unexpected improvement.
I would like to thank you, Dr. Ryan, and your staff for your treatments and generous, kind and considerate support during the past 3 months." - Virgil W.
"I was asked to write a testimonial by Dr. Ryan today. The strange thing about that is I have been screaming inside to tell everyone of the miraculous treatment I have received from Drs. Melissa and Ryan Groelz. Wahoo!! I'm going to tell my story.
Six months ago, I attended an information session for the 'Train to End Stroke program' for the American Stroke Association after receiving a flyer in the mail. I was touched by the soul of an incredible 12 year old stroke victim who described the afternoon of her stroke. That story combined with the knowledge of my mother's fatal stroke, and I knew I had to do something. My commitment to the American Stroke Association was to raise $3,500 and to RUN A MARATHON! I wasn't sure which would be more difficult, but I knew that either would be easy compared to what most stroke victims deal with on a daily basis "
" So, I started my running and my fundraising. Everything was going well until the long runs started. I began to feel more and more pain in my back. I mentioned this to a co-worker, who without hesitation she told me to go see her chiropractor. I took her advice and immediately called Drs. Melissa and Ryan. I needed to be able to complete this marathon, because so many people had donated money for the American Stroke Association because I had told them about my commitment. To make a long story a little less long, these two wonderful doctors did their magic. After one session, I was able to continue my training with out interruption. They identified my problem and addressed it with the same focus and determination which I had for my cause. Unlike many practitioners which I have encountered in the past, they took a sincere interest in my goal and me. Over the past four months I have witnessed their compassion and interest in all of their patients. Combine their incredible knowledge of human anatomy and human kindness, and your get success!
By the way, I missed only one day of training, which was due to weather, I raised over $6,655, and ran the marathon in 4 hours and 40 minutes!!! What an experience." - Susan W.
