For a limited time we will be offering this special.
We will be in touch soon!
We had recently met with the doctor that diagnosed Yanni with Austism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in 2010 for a follow-up evaluation. She alerted me that as he gets older that we may need to consider medication. He was 8.5 when we met with her and said that he was showing signs of ADHD, which was the reason for the meds. This, of course, did not sit well with me and wanted to find alternative ways to help him. He has received therapy since the age of 3 yrs (Speech, OT, Developmental, and currently Behavior (ABA)). No medications. Ever.Upon starting care at Roots Family Chiropractic, we started seeing the transformations within the first month. The results really showed through in the classroom. His teachers would come up to me saying that his speech especially had exploded. And that his participation really had evolved - kind of suddenly. And as the treatment progressed, he just overall calmed down.Roots Family Chiropractic is awesome. If I can say with one word, Awesome! I first met Lauren and she was kindly described the treatment for Autism. Dr. Tom truly is passionate about caring for children. It shows with his patience and overall wellness for the entire family. He listens and tries to find ways to help me with my struggles too. The clinic is very inviting and comfortable. I cannot say enough to express how thankful I am to Dr. Tom and his loyalty for caring for Yanni. It’s amazing.
I first began chiropractic care after getting connected with Dr. Tom and receiving a screening, from which I learned I had a stressed nervous system. As someone who had always been skeptical of chiropractic care, I think it is Dr. Tom’s holistic and gentle approach that initially intrigued me. I began with Dr. Tom right around the same time that I began thinking about my overall wellness program, adjusting to the stressors of a relatively new job, and learning more about how some of the chronic conditions I have lived with (TMJ, raynauds, ankle pain) fit together and may be interrelated. As a health care professional and yoga enthusiast I had always considered myself a healthy person— in that I eat well and exercise regularly— and generally I think I am, but I quickly learned that I have subtle signs and symptoms that I didn’t even realize were telling me that I was a person with a stressed nervous system.Since chiropractic care has become a part of my regular weekly routine I have become more aware and, ultimately, more mindful about the way in which stress on my nervous system impacts my overall body function. The biggest, and most immediate, shift I noticed was my quality of sleep. After seeing Dr. Tom 1-2 times I began sleeping through the night, not even really realizing I was waking up restless, and feeling more refreshed in the morning. I also noticed shifts in my body during my yoga practice, included better balance, increased flexibility in my hips, and decreased tenderness in my ankle (left over from an injury that was a decade old). Besides the subtle shifts in my sleep and yoga practice, I now notice my TMJ significantly less throughout my week— less “clicks” when I chew and less instances of my jaw locking up. I had always been told the only way to treat my TMJ would be surgery once it got bad enough, so this change has been huge for me.Dr. Tom and Lauren make patient care their top priority. They have created an office space that is warm, inviting, and makes you feel instantly comfortable. Dr. Tom explains things in a way that is patient friendly and takes great effort to not only support patients through his care, but educate as well. Lauren is professional and approachable at the same time and has mastered the art of making you feel comfortable, while also taking care of the details of the day to day (like scheduling). Having a cute little mascot like Oliver doesn’t hurt either. Roots is truly a family practice and a family-focused practice.
I started chiropractic care when a friend recommended that I try it for my round ligament pain. I was in constant pain and along with severe nausea I had a hard time doing anything. I no longer wanted to go out, I hated doing my prenatal yoga, and even getting groceries was a chore! Sitting or standing didn’t make a difference, I couldn’t sleep and I thought if I am THIS miserable at this point of my pregnancy I don’t see how on earth I am going to make it. I was desperate! Then I started looking up chiropractors in my area and I ran across Root’s Family Chiropractic on Yelp and went on to the website. I really liked how Dr. Tom’s focus was on pre-natal and child care.I have lots more energy (even with a newborn!) I no longer deal with panic attacks and now I walk all over the city no problem. My pregnancy journey changed from something that I had to “get through” to an experience I could enjoy. I would recommend Dr. Tom to every pregnant woman I came across. I noticed that I was feeling much better and that my over all health was improving. I was no longer constipated, I was not getting sick, and my allergies were much improved! I also only had mild discomfort with my round ligaments and Dr. Tom’s soft tissue work took care of that! The nurses and hospital staff could not believe how quickly I was healing and recovering, I feel that everything I did helped; but one of the biggest things was my chiropractic care with Dr. Tom. I even went in to get adjusted right before heading to the hospital! That’s how much I believe in being “well adjusted”.Dr. Tom and the staff at Roots Family Chiropractic are amazing! Right from the beginning Dr. Tom explained what his process was and wanted to know what my “goals” were for my health. I’ve gone to different providers that are “alternative” and unlike those other practices, I was actually involved and played an active part in my treatment. I really appreciate that Dr. Tom and I built a relationship that allowed me to track my progress. After I came home from the hospital, I asked Dr. Tom if he would be willing to check my little bubba being that he had a traumatic birth and I wanted to get him back on track. He came to my home and adjusted the both of us! Dr. Tom goes above and beyond to take care of his patients and treats you as a part of his family. The staff at Roots Family Chiropractic is professional and friendly. If that is important to you have found the practice for you. I have enjoyed getting to know Lauren and Oliver and now that my whole family is being treated we have even more fun! Family centric care is the base of this practice with a commitment to helping you be your best self. My family is very fortunate to be a part of this practice.
Eleanor has been struggling with sensory processing issues since birth. She was bothered by certain touch or environmental stimulus. She was behind in several milestones. Night terrors took over our nights. She also had a hard time concentrating, dealing with emotions and following through with tasks. Occupational therapy was helpful in that it helped us parents learn what is going on and how to help her. But it never made the underlying issues go away. We used natural supplements daily for her to cope. We started seeing Dr. Tom when she was 4 years old and saw immediate results with the first adjustment. Her school asked what we did differently because she was like a different kid in the classroom. She was concentrating better, handling her emotions, improving on potty training. With every adjustment, the sensory issues seem to just melt away. With Eleanor feeling better, she is now starting to catch up at school. The stress at home has been much better and we get to enjoy more fun time together instead of always dealing with a melt down. We can even participate in more social activities! It’s like a wall has been lifted and Eleanor is able to be the person she is on the inside. Dr Tom is the best! His specific chiropractic approach addresses the root cause and not just a temporary fix. He is open and helps each client how they need it. The office is very welcoming to families and is kid friendly.
