“I just started Active Release Therapy with Dr. Matt. Over the years chiropractic care has helped me a lot, but I was floored by how quickly ART helped relieve muscle pain. Now we’re working on changing how my muscles respond to stress. I never thought I would be free from muscle spasms, but now I’m in much less pain and very hopeful that I will continue to avoid spasms.” – Mandy M.
“My 8yr old daughter is seeing Dr. Matt for bed-wetting. We have tried everything under the sun to help her overcome this problem, with no success. He found her low back to have a slight curve and started working with her to realign her back to neutral. His care, along with his dairy-free recommendation has brought us 2 weeks straight of dry mornings!” – Lynne S.
“Hannah’s GI issues started when she was only 3 months old. The doctor had us try every infant formula on the market, but everything seemed to upset her tummy. We settled on a gentlease formula, however she still had a very hard time digesting it and the doctor had us start giving her prune juice to help the constipation. By the time she was 6 months old we were giving her suppositories on a regular basis, and the doctors were hopeful she would just “grow out of it.” At 18 months old the prune juice and suppositories weren’t working and after 9 days without a bowel movement we ended up in the emergency room where they gave Hannah 2 adult enemas back to back.
After the ER visit her pediatrician referred us to Children’s Hospital for a barium enema to check for obstructions in her intestine. The findings were normal and again we were told she will probably just “grow out of it.” At this point the pediatrician prescribed Miralax to be taken daily to help regulate Hannah’s bowel movements. I remember reading the label and it saying it was recommended only for adult use and for no longer than 7 days. We discussed our concerns with the pediatrician but were assured not to worry and they kept her on an adult dose for 2 consecutive years. Even though it never felt right giving her a laxative on a regular basis we had a “doctor knows best” mentality.
In addition to the GI issues, Hannah always has had an extremely weak immune system. She had reactions to almost every vaccine and her body was resistant to most antibiotics. By the time she was 4 years old the doctors stop giving us the “she’ll grow out of it” answers and really started to show concern when she maintained her height and weight for 12 months (she didn’t grow or gain weight, however she didn’t lose weight either.) They immediately assumed Celiac Disease, but she tested negative. We continued to go in regularly for height and weight checks and the doctors tested for Celiac again convinced that had to be the problem, but it always came back negative. In June of 2013 Hannah was experiencing extreme shoulder pain. We took her to Urgent Care where they took x-rays, she was diagnosed her with a minor shoulder sprain and sent home in a sling. Again, even though we didn’t agree that it was only a sprain we took her home with the “doctor knows best” mentality. By morning she was in so much pain she could barely move, her fever spiked, and she lost her stools. (With all the constipation she had for 6 years we knew something was seriously wrong.) After more x-rays, an MRI, and a transfer to Children’s Hospital she had emergency surgery to remove a staph infection that had settled in her bone.
Hannah spent 12 days in the hospital as her body was resistant to most of the antibiotics given to her, followed by 6 weeks of a home nurse care. The doctors were stumped to how she contracted this staph infection, and we were told it was just a rare case with no explanation. During this time she continued to struggle with constipation and tummy aches. The doctor again recommended Miralax and at that point we knew there had to be another treatment path. The biggest regret I have is not being open minded to chiropractic care earlier. I am honestly blown away at how quickly we have seen positive results with bringing Hannah to see Dr James, and I am excited to see the transformation of health in our whole family over the next year. Hannah: “I feel so happy ever since I have seen Dr James. It feels much better getting adjusted. Before meeting Dr James I felt cranky because I had a hard time pooping. Now I have a BM almost every day and feel AWESOME!”
“What brought me in to Finish Line Chiropractic was my hip pain since July of 2013. After seeing 4 different orthopedic doctors and four months later I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hips, a bone spur on each hip and a Labrum tear in each. I was told I would probably have to have a double hip replacement sooner or later, so I sat on that for about 6 months.
I was recommended me to go see her chiropractor, Dr. James at Finish Line. Because I was very hesitant (and had bit of phobia), it took me almost 2 months before I even called.
In March of 2014 I came in and finally met with Dr. James and we started my treatment pretty much right away. After seeing Dr. James for 4 months I
now have the ability to work out again because I am feeling better and I decided to cancel my surgery. I am now 10 months into coming to Finish Line and working with Andreya Tornes of Tone2day and I am feeling the best I have felt in 2 years.“
“Dr. James was able to turn my baby head down in just one visit by using the Webster theory. I am very pleased at how noninvasive this procedure was done. I highly recommend Dr. James because he is very knowledgeable about this theory. I also recommend going in two to three times a week for adjustments to stay comfortable! – Missy C.“
“Dr. Rachel deserves a special “Thank You” for making it possible for me to go on the trip of a lifetime. I remember coming into your office in tears, less than two weeks before we were to leave. Initially, I hurt my back while cross county skiing. The pain was going from my back down my leg. First, she calmed me down by having me breath in the essential oil, lavender. I was amazed as my rapid breathing gradually slowed down until it became normal. She said there was a good chance that not only would I be able to go on my trip, but I may be able to do some of the activities I had signed up for. My husband and I had planned a cruise in the South Sea, near Tahiti to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary.
I came each weekday and she not only adjusted my back and gave me exercises to do, she had me use Deep Blue Rub for the pain and took x-rays to see if I could try horseback riding. During this time she was both compassionate and encouraging.
I did have some problems sitting for 8 hours, and she gave me several suggestions ahead of time that were helpful. Our trip was even better than I had hoped! We not only went horse back riding along the ocean but also spent an hour in the ocean on a wave runner.
I sincerely believe this would not have been possible without Dr. Rachel’s knowledge and skills. Another thing that happened because of Dr. Rachel’s encouragement, is that I have become an advocate for using essential oils and have used them successful for a multitude of situations.
I am so grateful to have met Dr. Rachel and know she has a plan to keep my back aligned. I will recommend her to others as well as the entire staff at Finish Line. – Sherry“
“I just had my first Acupuncture appointment ever, and Lacey was great! I was amazed at how she was able to create a safe comfortable environment to relax and reflect. The needles didn’t hurt at all and I immediately felt all my stress and anxiety leave my body. Not only is she great at sticking you with needles, her vast knowledge of herbal supplements and eastern medicine makes you rethink how your body operations and what you can do with it! I was so impressed I scheduled my second appointment for myself and my husband. Words can’t explain how excellent my experience was. Thank you Lacey.” – Stacy Wilhelm
“Finish Line’s team is simply fantastic. Their presentation was informative, humorous and delightful. The shakes they provided were absolutely delicious. We have had many other speakers in our office, but Finish Line was something special. Our employees were engaged like I have never seen them before! I would highly recommend your next wellness presentation to be by Finish Line. They are a highly professional and intelligent group of people! -Sheryl H.“
“Thank you Dr. Matt! with A.R.T and taking the time to educate me on proper posture and strengthening exercises I feel so much better and my headaches are close to gone!” – Amy B.
“I have spent 3 years on the US Ski Team, I am a Junior National Champion and a 3x World Juniors Member. I have essentially put my body through a blender. From all the crashes and hospital visits I never knew if my back and body would ever look, function, or feel normal again. That is until I was referred to DR. James Midboe at Finish Line Chiropractic. I now move better, feel better and am able to live a happier, healthier, pain free life. Make the time to go see Finish Line Chiropractic and take care of yourself, no matter who you are or what you do you, your body will thank you… –Matt S.“
“Kay, everyone in the office enjoyed their presentation and visit.. I was skeptical but it was great… thank you so much .. have I changed my eating habits … well – working on it more now.. –Wayne J.“
“We are very blessed that you have been able to come along side and partner with us for these events. While our team is going to impact lives of some folks in great need, I know that your partnership of support has meant a great deal to all of us. The health and welfare for us of us should be a important part of our lives. Thank you again for all your support. Blessings – Lori“
“I feel so much BETTER! My neck now has a wider range of motion. I should have come to Finish Line 30 years ago! They are all so helpful and great to do business with. Dr. Ashley is the BEST!“
“Lacey is such an amazing acupuncturist! Her presence is so calming. I feel like she really listens to me. I feel so relaxed and rejuvenated after each session. I find her to be honest, healing, and very comforting. I feel like she really understands what I am going through and is able to make me feel better. I will continue to go to her whenever I feel like I need to re-boost or am coming down with something. I would highly recommend her to anyone!!!” – Leah E.
“Dr. James – I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate everything you have done for me. This truly is a life changing journey for me – in the way I view myself. You are an inspiration – I am amazed at how you just recently recovered from cancer and yet are concerned with how others are doing and your willingness to help others live well.“
“Thanks to Dr. Matt and his care, I have gone from having several headaches a day to ZERO! What a relief and without medication like my medical Doctor wanted me to try. Feel better everyday Dr. Matt and I owe it all to you!” – Tami V.
“Dr Jim, Just wanted to thank you for the part you play in my goal towards good health….and in keeping me virtually pain free in comparison to 2 years ago. I would not have enjoyed activities like rock climbing (this past weekend in Moab, Utah) You DO make a difference!“
“I would like to share my personal story on what Dr. Jim and Finish Line Chiropractic have done for my health. I have suffered from sinus infections for years and I have been on antibiotics 4-6 times a year for at least 10 years. It was recommended that I go through surgery to help open up my sinuses. I was miserable.
My good friend Kay Grobel recommended that I come and see Dr. Jim at Finish Line Chiropractic. On my first visit I explained my concern about my sinus issues, and he shared with me that if I got off of dairy, he would guarantee that I would feel better.
I did just that and was amazed how much better I felt. I thought if that worked, I would listen to whatever else he told me to do. I decided to have an alcat test to help me find out the right food to be feeding my body. That again was a total shocker. I had no idea on the foods that I was allergic to.
This brought me to finally doing the detox. I wanted to rid my body of all of the toxins that were causing me to be tired, foggy minded, bloated and just not feeling 100%. I did the 21 day detox and it was not nearly as hard as I thought it would be.
I was tired at first and had minor symptoms, but it was totally worth going through to feel like I do today. I wake up with a ton of energy, my workouts are much more energetic, my stress level is much lower, my mind is clear. I love the way that I feel today.
I feel blessed that I found a doctor that truly cares about his patients health through feeding the body with the right nutrients. Thank you Dr. Jim and Finish Line Chiropractic for giving me a new way of living!“
“Dr. Jim Alexander is my chiropractor at finish line and has been the only one who has been able to help me with all of my issues. They include back pain, knee pain and neck pain. He also has given me nutritional advice and even has helped with regulating my hormones. The whole team has made me feel very important and that my needs really matter. They are like family to me, and would highly recommend them. – Carrie P.“
“A few months ago I met Kay on the golf course. Who knew spinning a wheel would change my lifestyle. After winning a complementary Workplace Wellness visit for our company it gave me a new way of thinking about seeing a chiropractor. I have to admit; at first I was in it for the free lunch, but when Kay, Dr. James, and Dr. Ashley visited us it was far more than just a lunch.“
“Everyone at our office enjoyed learning more about healthy choices that we should be making and knowing some of the common pitfalls. James was very easy to listen to and was a wealth of information. He answered all of our questions we had, even though we could not answer half of his!
After their visit, I took it into my own hands to have an assessment. This was basically just X-rays. I was interested in this since I have had back issues for many years. It turned out that I had some spinal and neck issues that was the associated with this discomfort. After discussing my X-rays with Dr. James Midboe, he immediately put together a game plan. I was a bit reluctant due to the time required to complete his plan but decided to commit to it anyways. I am glad that I did.
O yeah, did I mention that you can sit in massage chairs while waiting for your appointment? – Mark B.“
“After being in a car accident & finding no relief with PT for 2 months, I am finally starting to heal with the great work of Finish Line & Matt. The Active Release he does has been very helpful. Highly recommend Finish Line.” –Jennifer L.
“Finish Line Chiropractic is a great place to get or stay healthy. With a lifestyle most of us lead we tend to forget about one, self. I am one of those and from the first time I met Kay Grobel at a 5K event and recieved my Wellness Pass the smiling faces of the doctors and everyone that works here is “home” to say the least. My first visit they asked questions about my body, took xrays and did a full body evaluation. After a few days they brought me back and explained where and why I was having problem areas, explained why it was happening from my xrays and then set me up with a treatment and also check with my insurance. That is customer relations at it’s best!
The people welcome you as you walk in, I get to sit in a message chair before my appointment, get adjusted then lie on a roller bed after. I have never had this treatment. Needless to say they know you by name and if they is anything they can help with they will do their best. I love going and feeling my best for the start of 2013 and I know it will continue being treated at Finish Line Chiropractic. Thanks Kay and Dr. Ashley!“
“You all rock! I just want to say that you all are the buzz this afternoon around my office. I have had so many questions I have answered or tried my best to so THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! –Allison K.“
“Dr Jim and Dr James both truly care about my overall health. They both motivate and inspire me to live a healthier lifestyle. Thank you! I feel so blessed.“
“Thank you for partnering with us. On a personal note I do not know what I would do without the care I have received there. It really has transformed my life, and as Dr James says “The best is yet to come” –Lori K –“
“Jim is the most wonderful chiropractor! He has helped get me and my husbands bodies back into line! Currently 20 weeks pregnant and he has made my lower back so much better! I would highly recommend him. Very knowledgeable and takes his time to explain everything! This place is beautiful as well! – Missy C –“
“SO incredibly thankful for FLC – Dr. James Midboe has literally saved my back, not to mention helping me through a lot of other issues!!! It’s so comforting to know there is a great chiropractic clinic out there that “gets it” – and by that I mean…it’s not just about a “crack here” or a “crack there” to them; rather, they truly understand the body and aim to get to the root of your problem by offering a number of other services to help in aiding your recovery…it’s a one-stop-shop home-run, if you ask me! I love FLC – Thank You!!! -Kelli F –“
“Love this clinic! Beautiful and relaxing atmosphere while you wait. The wait is never long, and you can see how your Dr is progressing because everyone gets adjusted in full clothing and in one big room. Initial consultation is given in a private room. There are 5 back rollers and many other options for therapy afterwards. Your appointment flows smoothly no matter how busy they are! -Cindy B –“
“Love all the chiropractors at Finish Line. So glad we started going there! The whole family goes and we feel great. It not just a chiropractic clinic they truly believe in wellness as a whole and can help you with anything. – Brenda K –“
