TESTIMONIALS

     My name is Bo Garrett. I am a Lead Guitarist with Montgomery Gentry.  A few years ago, during a band soundcheck, my left hand suddenly became very cold and subsequently lost ALL of its grip. When I say this, I mean to the point that I didn’t even have the ability to remove the cap from a carton of milk. As a guitarist, this could have been a career ending condition, rendering me incapable of compressing the strings.

     In a state of fear, I went to see Dr. Arthur Pangemanan, hoping to avoid surgery or at worst, losing the ability to do what I love most. After X-rays and a very detailed explanation of how a nerve was trapped in my shoulder, we began the treatment process.

    After a few visits, I began to notice a gradual return in my ability to squeeze with my left hand and, more importantly, play some guitar.  Through chiropractic care and proper exercise and maintenance, I was able to make a full recovery and am able to maintain a very busy tour schedule. My testimonial is not from hearsay. It is from real life experience that happened to me. Chiropractics work! Thank you, Doc Arthur!

Breeched Pregnancy

"After finding out my baby was still breech after the 32nd week of my pregnancy, my midwife turned it for me with external version.

 

Unfortunately the baby didn't stay, so she advised me to see a chiropractor who could perform the Webster Technique which is an adjustment specifically designed to balance the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the pelvis and uterus, and has been known to turn breech or malpositioned babies, specifically posterior and breech babies.

 

I went to my local chiropractor here in Liberty, Casey County who referred me to Dr. Pangemanan about 1.5 hour north from where we live, because he's the only one in the area that is trained to help pregnancy and pediatric cases. 

 

After having a "complete" chiropractic adjustment by Dr. Pangemanan, I later went to have an ultrasound taken and my baby has turned into the proper position! How blessed to have a natural delivery instead of a possible caesarean. Thank you Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca."  ~ Norma Shirk.

Prenatal Chiropractic

"I was referred here by my midwife during my pregnancy. I received amazing care the last few weeks before my son was born.

 

I can honestly say chiropractic care made a huge difference for me. My son was born easily and quickly and I credit Dr. Arthur and chiropractic care with some of that!

 

Both of my children have been adjusted here, myself and my husband continue to come here on a monthly basis to maintain the correction we have achieved. The atmosphere is so welcoming and Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca are so great with my kids. I highly recommend them to anyone!!  ~ Lauren Furlong

Infant Torticollis

"Bailey is our 6 month old, beautiful baby girl. She has been such a precious blessing to our lives. Being a first time mom, I was very fortunate to have an easy delivery with a happy, healthy baby. When I took Bailey for her 4 month check up, her pediatrician asked if I noticed her head tilted to the right. This was something I had never noticed before especially since she wasn't sitting up yet.

 

As soon as I looked, I could plainly see the tilt in her head to the right. The pediatrician explained that this was "torticollis" and referred me to a Physical Therapist for stretches. I was instantly full of guilt because it was something neither me nor anyone in my family had noticed. I was panicked because it was sticking out like a sore thumb!! 

 

As a previous patient for migraine headaches, I immediately knew that I was going to bring Bailey to see Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca. Several friends and family members have also received treatment at their office and I knew they could help my baby. Dr. Arthur did an excellent job of explaining torticollis to me and my family members. I instantly felt relief to know that she was in good hands and getting treatment to help put the vertebrae back in position instead of just exercises and stretches.

 

After a few treatments, you could see improvement in the way Bailey held her head. She also became more mobile in turning her head from side to side. Bailey is still continuing treatment but the way she holds her head has greatly improved.

 

I am very thankful for Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca and the care they have given Bailey. It it like going to see family instead of a doctor. I recommend that every mom bring their baby in for a scan even if everything seems to be going great. There may be something you can't see."  ~ Leslie Mitchell

Excellent Care

"Let me take a moment of your time to tell you about my WONDERFUL experience I had with Dr. Susan Gore at Max Chiropractic. I was having excruciating pain in my back, hips, and knees and went to Max Chiropractic. That is where I met Dr. Susan Gore. She is EXCELLENT.   She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Susan is so personal and professional with such an extremely high level of integrity. She is so gentle and explains in detail every thing she does throughout your entire adjustment. She educates you on the proper exercises your need according to your physical needs and shows you examples on how to do them.  She makes sure you are COMPLETELY satisfied and all of your questions have been answered before you leave. I feel so much better since I have been going to her. My pain level in all areas is almost completely gone. She has given me the confidence I need to maintain my health by educating me in the proper way I need to do so.  I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone that is having pain. Her positivity in life and her personal communication just leaves you with a ray sunshine that will complete you day." - Susan Higdon

Whole Family Care

Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca are excellent professionals dedicated to each and every person's care. I highly recommend! Every time my neck or back is out of alignment, Dr. Rebecca will adjust me and I feel fantastic. Better sleep and no more aching neck and muscles. My husband agrees. They have treated our kids too and are kind and gentle with them. ~ Angela Dobbs

Headaches Gone

I haven't had a headache since the day I started treatment. I couldn't see straight at the end of almost every work day. Now I've got my life back. My work ethic is back to where it was years ago and I can go go go all day long. I've been migraine free for weeks now. I couldn't be happier with the results and I would recommend at least trying chiropractic help to anyone who has headaches. It had been a miracle in my life. Don't be afraid to try. Thank you!!  ~ Joshua Phillips

Max family chiropractic is wonderful. Dr. Gore is awesome! She helped me recover from a sports injury and some other spinal issues. I had chronic pain in my shoulders and neck and she was able to correct all of it and I feel so much better than before my treatments! - Olivia Bates

Two easier pregnancies, labors & deliveries!

"Dr. Arthur is the best chiropractor, and he's THE ONLY one I would trust to work with for pregnant mom's!! He is thorough in his assessments, and is highly skilled and trained in his treatment! I have never gone to a chiropractor ever before in my life, but my Midwife (Katie Isaac) wanted me to go and see Dr. Arthur specifically in order to better align my pelvic region and spine in preparation for my 2nd labor and delivery for the birth of my 2nd son. I was quite unsure at first about what the process would be like, but Dr. Arthur's demeanor was so caring, very attentive, and he really cares about the well-being and health of both the mom and your baby!!! I trust Dr. Arthur would never do anything to a pregnant mom to put her at risk for her health or the baby's health. To give a frame of reference....in my 1st labor and delivery (this was before I started seeing Dr. Arthur, because I didn't start seeing him until my 2nd pregnancy) I was in active labor pushing for 3 and a half hours for the birth of my 1st son. I thought this was normal to be in active labor for so long because of it being my first time and first experience, but in my 2nd pregnancy my Midwife knew that my active labor was so long and intensive only because my pelvic region was out of alignment. And once I started seeing Dr. Arthur, I learned that your active labor and overall pregnancy experience DOES NOT have to be so exhaustive and intensive!! I was able to withstand the pressure and feeling so uncomfortable and in pain during my third trimester only because I saw Dr. Arthur for treatment. Each time I saw him I was immediately able to feel more relaxed, very comfortable, and I was able to walk easily for over an hour at a time for better exercise. So overall, I have seen Dr. Arthur for two rounds of treatment (for my 2nd pregnancy and also my 3rd pregnancy), and I went from pushing for 3 and a half hours in my 1st labor and delivery to pushing only 5-10 minutes total for BOTH of my labor and deliveries for my 2nd son and my 3rd son. Again, I highly recommend Dr. Arthur because he truly has a unique gift for treating the pain and pressure difficulties that pregnant mom's have in their back and pelvic region!! He was able to figure out specialty problems that I had that no one else could diagnose (i.e., spasms in my stomach area), but he always found solutions to my problems. He doesn't rush you either in his work, he takes the time to listen and understand what your needs are. I would never go to anybody else but him, because he was the reason my labor and deliveries were so fast and smooth!!! :)  ~  Rhealynn Clark, via Google Review

Colicky Fussy Sleepless Baby

"I had a difficult delivery, and ultimately my doctor used the vacuum to deliver Dylan. I, of course, did not see the procedure, but my husband and mother, witnessed the procedure, and they both said that it was pretty traumatic. After bringing Dylan home, he began to cry-not just a fussy cry, but a hurting scream. Philip and I tried everything from middle of the night car rides, to sleeping in the bouncy seat, to feeding him almost every hour. We even took him to the emergency room one night, and the doctor told us he had colic and to deal with it. I called his pediatrician almost everyday, and the nurse told me he just had gas and to give him gas drops. So, then I realized that I wasn't producing very much milk, so instead of breastfeeding I began to bottle feed. That worked for a day or two, and then the screaming returned. We then thought he had colic or acid reflux. We switched the brand of bottles we were using to the Dr. Brown's bottles, began using Mylicon drops before every feeding, sat him straight up while feeding, and switched his formula to Nutramigen for colicky babies. That worked for a day or two and then Dylan started screaming again. Finally, my sister, Tabitha Lilly, a patient of Dr. Arthur's, told Dr. Arthur about what Dylan was going through and he suggested that we bring Dylan to see him. The day before Dylan turned five (5) weeks old, he had a major screaming episode , and knowing that not only was Dylan in pain, but I was about at the end of my rope, my mother called Dr. Arthur's office to make an appointment. They did not have one that day, but my mother explained the situation to Liz, and Liz talked to Dr. Arthur. Dr. Arthur made time to see Dylan that day, and he took about an hour with us. He scanned Dylan's spine, and yes, he had several subluxations in his neck and back. That was what was wrong the entire time. Dylan was in pain. Dylan's birth caused the subluxations in his neck and spine. On that day, Dr. Arthur, during Dylan's screaming, took such time and patience with Dylan and adjusted him. The screaming immediately turned to a cry. I could tell the relief that Dylan felt just in a day. He began sleeping better, eating better, burping better, just all around a better baby. Dylan has now been seeing Dr. Arthur three (3) times weekly since he was five (5) weeks old, and he is a completely different child. He smiles, he coos, he laughs, and he is as happy as he can be. Since the first visit with Dr. Arthur, Dylan has increasingly become more fond of Dr. Arthur. He now smiles during his adjustment and is so happy to see Dr. Arthur-the man who made him feel better. (I know he is only 8 weeks old, but I swear Dylan knows Dr. Arthur's voice and is happy to see him.) As a new mother, I didn't realize what a joy a newborn could be until Dr. Arthur worked his magic on Dylan. Dr. Arthur has taken such time and has been so focused on making our son a happy healthy child-I can't explain to you how much that means to my whole family."  Tiffany G.

Precise, No Crack + Go

"Dr. Arthur has been outstanding to work with.  He is incredibly knowledgeable and very detailed in his work.  I have been to other Chiropractors where it’s “in and out” or “crack and go”.  He is absolutely not that way.  He uses very precise techniques that actually aligns your entire spine. For me personally, I had a slipped disk and thought I was going to need surgery.  I could not work and could hardly walk.  I was in so much pain. I had seen a back cracker and he only made things worse.  Dr. Arthur was recommended as a last minute hope before surgery.  After a few months of treatment I was back in the game.  Now, I am recovered and working out again.  I can’t thank him enough for how he has helped me. I would absolutely recommend Max-Family."  Brent Rempe

Love No Popping No Cracking!!

"I have seen a variety of chiropractors over the years. My regular Chiro was off a day I desperately needed help, so I called Max Family Chiro, and they were able to fit me in the same day! I will not be returning to my old one! I was apprehensive about the no popping and no cracking approach, but I def feel like their way of  adjusting keeps me feeling better longer! Zero regrets for my change over to Max Family, and would recommend to anyone without hesitation!" ~ Kristy Stevens

Sports Injuries, Breeched Baby, Prenatal Care!!

"I’ve been seeing the Pangemanan’s off and on for over a decade. I was given excellent care for sports injuries as a teenager and now that I’m an expecting mother Dr. Arthur has used the Webster method to turn my breech baby and, as always, truly gave his time and attention to every detail. He always shares in depth his knowledge about what is going on with my body and the measures I can take to help with the alignment process. They’re the best in the biz." ~ Hillary Bryant

Shoulder Pain + Sports Injury Recovery!!

Webster certified for Pregnant Moms!!

He has made my pregnancy pain free and given me so many helpful tips to keep me and my baby healthy. I feel so confident I’ll be able to have a natural delivery because of his guidance!" ~ Nichole McCarty

Slipped Disc and Could Hardly Walk!!

Firefighter, Stiff Back, Poor Sleep, Trouble Rolling Out of Bed!!

"Max Family Chiropractic and the Pangemanan's have been fixing my back for about 5 years now. If I am sleeping poorly or have a ladder kick out and fall from 12 feet they have always put me back together and have me feeling like new. I remember at my 10 year point as a fireman and feeling like I was 70. Stiff, poor sleep, and trouble rolling out of bed for fire runs. Not knowing if I would make it to the 20 year mark. Now I feel younger and have many more years left in me to keep up with my children. I highly recommend Max Family Chiropractic." ~ Travis McQuinn

Great Prenatal and Postpartum!!

"So many positives to give this place! First off, everyone in the office my is friendly and helpful. Dr. Arthur has been a great help for my whole family! Thanks to Dr Arthur, my delivery and postpartum. All chiropractors there are knowledgable and professional! I enjoy coming here and never leave disappointment." ~ Keiona Frye

Baby sleep better, no more torticollis

"I started taking my baby, Tristan, to Dr. Arthur when he was only four months old. He would not sleep on his back so I thought maybe something was wrong. His back was out of alignment.   Now he was/is much happier over all after getting adjusted. We went twice a week for about a month.  Now, we go monthly for routine adjustments.  When we went in this week, he got on the table and let Dr. Arthur work on him without me having to hold him:-) I would highly recommend anyone with kids to go see Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca so they won't have problems as they get older. The whole staff is great!" ~ Melanie Johnson

 

Easy Labor, Successful VBAC, No More Constipation!

"I received chiropractic care during my pregnancy to prepare for the birth I wanted. I was thrilled to be able to have a successful VBAC with a short labor with no medical intervention. Now, my newborn is seen by Dr. Arthur for trouble with constipation. She has a bowel movement within an hour of every chiropractic visit. We have been thrilled with the care and the benefits associated with routine visits. The best thing is the personal attention and thoughtful education about overall health." ~ Kristin Hartley Garfie

Standing Taller after the First Visit!

"I was nervous going to see a chiropractor during COVID-19. However, my back and neck needed it. During my visit, I never felt unsafe. Masks, gloves, and disinfecting were all taking place. The staff is extremely friendly and willing to call your insurance company to talk with them about what your plan covers. All the doctors are extremely knowledgeable. The non-manual manipulation technique works wonders. When I came home after my first visit, my wife said “you already are standing taller!” They are all wonderful people here!" - Daniel B.

No Popping, feeling great!

"The office staff are always professional and friendly. Dr. Susan Gore provides the best adjustments. I am so pleased to have my back and neck feeling great. Preventive care is really important. I never wanted to go to the chiropractor because of popping the vertebrae but she uses an instrument that gently adjust the spine. Forever thankful!" - Aprile Hunt

No Popping, feeling great!

"My newborn was super colicky and not sleeping well when I met Dr. Art. I was skeptical to take him to a chiropractor, but had exhausted all other options. After the first visit we saw a huge difference. A month later he sleeps 8 hours before waking to nurse at night. I still can’t believe the amazing difference. My other two children and my husband and I both began going to Max Family after seeing our son’s turn around. We’ve all seen and felt a huge difference in our overall health. All of the staff and doctors are so friendly, helpful, and accommodating. We truly love this place and recommend them to all of our friends." ~ Chayah Johnson

CHIROPRACTIC WORKS!

“The largest study on how chiropractic care affects the cost of health care was conducted by American Specialty Health Plans Inc. of San Diego who compared four (4) years of medical claims from two groups:   1 million members with and without chiropractic care.    The findings were published in Archives of Internal Medicine (Oct. 2004) and WebMD, which confirmed that chiropractic care:

• Cut the cost of treating pain by 28%.

• Chiropractic care reduced 41% hospitalizations.

• Reduced back surgeries by 32%.

• Chiropractic care reduced the cost of medical imaging, such as X-rays or MRIs, by 37%."
