Oneka Chiropractic - Local Business Profile & Special Offer

Normally, when I post a "Local Business Profile", it's not an overly personal thing for me.  Usually I'm just trying to support local businesses, letting my neighbors know about a good contractor, etc.  This message, however, is a little different and more personal for me.

About a year and a half ago, I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease which caused a constant tingling sensation in my hand and arm.  I was x-rayed, MRI'd and specialists told  me I might need surgery, steroid injections, etc... One doctor told me that the disc problem in my neck might not get better... ever.

My Hugo medical doctor insisted that I speak to Dr. Aaron Arvig of Oneka Chiropractic.  I told him there were other Chiropractors that were closer to me (one I could walk to), but he politely insisted again.  I made the appointment and it was the first time I'd ever been seen by a Chiropractor.  Dr. Arvig assessed my situation and developed a plan to get me feeling better with regular adjustments and treatment.  I didn't need surgery, I didn't need a steroid shot.  I needed my back and my neck lined up and he had a plan to get it fixed. After a short time, the constant tingling subsided and the rest of my neck and back started feeling better too.  A few months later, the problem that had plagued me had vanished.

After he "fixed" me, Dr. Arvig asked me to come back from time to time to make sure everything was moving the way it should and to prevent the problems from returning.  I have been back about once a month since then, and the tingling issue never returned.  I also feel better overall when my neck and back's moving the way it should.

Medical stuff aside, Aaron's a really good guy. He lives with his wife and kids in Hugo. He's active with his kids in sports and school here too.

I told Dr. Arvig that I'd like to post something on our neighborhood blog about his practice- a Local Business Profile like I've done for other Hugo businesses.  I didn't tell him I was going to add my story to it. I hope he won't mind.  

He did ask me to share the following info with you, since I asked ...
