Breech Baby

“At 36 weeks, I was told that our baby was breech and that there was a very minimal chance that it would turn on its own. I was upset because I really wanted to have a natural, vaginal delivery. After a failed attempt at an external version, I exhausted all possibilities before having a C-section. After seeing Dr. Jeanne for three sessions, our baby flipped! I was able to have a vaginal delivery and we are so grateful for her help!” -Katie S.

Headache Free

“Dr. Jeanne saved my life and makes me want to get up everyday now that I am 95% headache free! I went from having migraines for 20 days a month to maybe 1 or 2 days a month. I can do anything I want without a headache now. I have also noticed improvements in my energy, sleep, immune system, digestion, and skin issues. My husband says I am back to my old self—happier, smiles and not missing life due to being ‘down with a headache.’” – Brenda G.

Yeast—Thrush—Candida Treatment

“Regular adjustments, enzyme therapy and muscle testing are tremendously helping me get over my yeast infection/thrush! Acupuncture was helpful too! I also appreciate that you have supplements at your office—it’s totally a whole body well-being practice!” -Jenn P.

More Energy

“I was always very active but with pain—I just learned to deal with it. Now, I am able to move without pain and keep up with my 2 ½ year old much better! I also have more energy since I’m finally sleeping better! And that makes me feel like doing more with my toddler—it’s great for her as well.” -Jenn P.

Pain Free

“I had an old baseball pitching injury for over 20 years. Painful to the touch and affecting daily life. With only two visits, the pain was completely gone!” I now have no pain and do activities that I couldn’t do previously. I’m able to be much more active with my children, now.  I have also noticed that our family is getting sick less often and our wellness visits keep us healthy year-round.” -Dr. Ryan’s patient

Childhood Development

“I so appreciate Dr. Jeanne, Dr. Ryan and Renee! You all care, and I mean really care about your patients. It almost feels like a family. Dr. Jeanne has helped not only me, but Gwenny (my toddler) in so many ways. She got her walking in just 2 months—Amazing! And got her feet positioning straight when she walks—in conjunction with orthotics. She helped Gwenny with sleeping by starting her on enzymes as well. She suggested additional emotional and vaccine clearings and Gwenny is now talking and counting. You have helped more than any!” -Jenn P.

Lyme Treatment

“I appreciate Dr. Jeanne’s kindness, patience, support, encouragement and understanding of me during this scary Lyme diagnosis and treatment. You don’t find doctors like her and Dr. Ryan very often. So blessed that God led me to 1st Step Family Wellness!” -Kama R.

What Kids are Saying about 1st Step Family Wellness

“After my (bi-weekly) wellness visit I am able to move faster and I am more flexible. I would recommend 1st Step Family Wellness to friends and family because adjustments are great for preventing sickness.” -Austin W., 10 year old patient

“Mommy, my spine is sad. After my adjustment, my spine is happy again!” -Dominic, 2 year old

Family Care

Dr. Jeanne has been treating my entire family for quite some time now. Through my entire pregnancy she worked one on one to keep my body aligned and ready for delivery. She has been helping my son with digestion problems and a slight deformation of his head since he was a born. My eight year old daughter absolutely loves her and is also a patient of hers. Doctor’s have tried and failed to help my husband with joint and muscle pain. He didn’t see how chiropractic care could ever help, but decided to give it a try anyway.  He now has great faith in the treatment plan Dr. Jeanne has designed for him.  She has a true gift, a passion and a love for her practice. It is a great honor to recommend her to everyone! -Lisa E.

Dr. Jeanne has been treating my family for over a year now.  My 9 year old daughter was having mood problems and trouble focusing in and out of school.   I had been going to a chiropractor for several years and thought we would see if it could help her.  Dr. Jeanne explained everything she did before it happened which made my daughter comfortable with the adjustments.  We began to see changes in the first few weeks of treatment.  She was a happier child and started doing better in school.  The success we had with my daughter made us decide to see what it could do for our son.  He is 7 years old and we’d been experiencing outbursts, anger issues and eating problems with him.  Before we even started treatment Dr. Jeanne was working with me to make changes in his diet and ways to control his anger.   In the beginning he was a little nervous about the adjustments and hearing the “popcorn” sound as he explained.   So Dr. Jeanne used other ways to adjust him so he did not hear the “popcorn”.   Dr. Jeanne is so good with him and just has a natural way with children.  Dr. Jeanne is fun and energetic and is very passionate about everything she does.  She gets to know you on a personal level and has helped us make healthy changes to our lifestyle.   My kids actually ask to see Dr. Jeanne now and are disappointed if it’s not their turn for an appointment.  -Dawn S.

General Testimonies

“If you’re like me, you’ve been to other chiros and it’s expensive and you don’t want to spend the money. They help, but never truly resolve your problems. I would say—invest in your health by trusting Dr. Jeanne’s suggestions. She is so skilled in so many areas, so she gets to the bottom cause and you will truly feel better, even after 1-2 days after your adjustment. She will resolve your issues—truly!” -Jenn P.

“My family is so glad I found a doctor who could correctly diagnose me and provide a treatment plan to help me get back to a healthy me!” -Patient at 1st Step Family Wellness

“Dr. S is very compassionate and trustworthy. She listens and cares for her patients. The office is a pleasant place to visit. Everyone is friendly and courteous. It is also VERY kid-friendly.” -Courtney
