Symptom Specific Testimonials

Great To Work With!

My questions were answered and I had it all explained to me what was being done and the effect of it. A great job in checking in and making sure I am no longer feeling the pain I was feeling prior to my visit. Steven D

Best Chiropractors

Very friendly knowledgeable front end staff. Dr Harestad is one of the best Chiropractors I have ever been to because he listens to my problems. I am well on my way to recovery after just 5 treatments. It is about a 2 hour turnaround travel time but well worth it. Thank you Nicole C. for convincing me to come. Murray C.

Looking Forward To Feeling Great Again

I am hopeful that I can be helped. I was using my last chiropractor as a bandaid for 20+ yrs, therefore I am excited that I was given exercises to do to help myself. The up to date techniques, and the technologies used in the office are a little mind blowing. I am very much looking forward to feeling great again, and not just live with the pain and discomfort. Tara K.

Knowledgeable and Understanding

Very knowledgeable and is very understanding and willing to answer any and all questions. Explained what was being done and the reasoning behind it. I can’t recommend  more to anyone who is in pain and suffering. I’m from a different province and will make the trip for treatment as I feel I can get relatively pain free. Thank you! Tony H.

Really Caring

As I had been injured with a concussion in a MVA, I really wanted to find somewhere to get the help that I needed to recover! I went to many chiropractic offices, and called quite a few, and when I called your office to see if you would take on MVA insurance patients, the first thing the lady asked was did you have a concussion? I said yes and I still do. The extensive tests that were done before my initial treatment were further proof that this practice really does care, and I am confident I will get results for the full extent of my pain & suffering from this MVA! Valerie N.


Amazing with my son. He made him feel very comfortable and listened too. He also put my mind at ease. He was teaching and showing us what he was doing the whole way through the assessment. Eli S.


On my second visit for x-ray results I was extremely emotional, Dr Wade took the extra time and compassion to really listen to me and explain the steps to get healthier… where I have fallen down, he gives me hope that I will lift up again. In just 2 appointments he has given me the optimism I need. I am looking forward to compare the change in me in 6 months and so on. The first adjustment from Dr Wade has already made a difference for me and I can’t wait for the next set! Annette W.

Back Pain & Chiropractic Care

“I injured my back at work a year and a half ago. I had countless tests and treatments that didn’t help. I was in such pain that I was not sleeping or eating right. I had constant headaches and was very depressed. I felt a difference after just three adjustments. The pain is gone. No more headaches and I can now sleep like a baby. If it weren’t for Dr. Hoffman I would have had a needless surgery on my back. Thank you for giving me my life back!” Rose Read more back pain testimonials

“When I began chiropractic care the pain in my lower back was debilitating. I also had pain between my shoulder blades and in my neck. The pain is steadily diminishing which has enhanced life. Work is easier, sleep is undisturbed and for the fist time in years, I can work without a back brace!” Irv

“I came to see Dr. Hoffman because of the intense pain along my entire spine and the burning and weakness in my legs. Since receiving chiropractic care, the pain has drastically reduced which help me sleep better and do more. For example, I can ride in vehicles for longer periods of time.” Diana, Rimbey, Alberta

“I have suffered for the past three years with serious degeneration – lower lumbar, spine, and neck. My ribs wouldn’t stay in place and I had such pain in my legs that I had to use a cane to walk. I saw several medical doctors and other chiropractors, and I was told that I would not be walking at all in two years. After about six weeks of care from Dr. Hoffman, I felt very good again! Dr. Hoffman has all the latest knowledge and equipment, and a whole new world of information and knowledge that changes the whole scope of health, wellness and chiropractic. I have improved greatly and I am extremely grateful to Dr. Hoffman and his staff!” Marlene, Edmonton, Alberta

It also was quite uncomfortable sitting and lying down and I also suffered from frequent headaches. Since receiving care I can now walk with ease and without a limp at all! I have no pain in my hips and headaches are far less frequent. I can do everything a 29 year old should be able to do; run, walk, dance, jump, climb stairs! The incredible team at the clinic is always friendly and Dr. Hoffman is always amusing, as well as very skilled. The advanced technology and the client care classes are great too!” Amanda

Simply ” a miracle” Thank you Dr. Hoffman, for caring for me and helping me so much” L.B., Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Fantastic. The appointments are arranged to accommodate my schedule. The Dr. and staff are personable. I’m getting results!”


Sports & Chiropractic Care

“I am a power lifter. I competed in the Junior National Power lifting Championship and placed silver in the 90kg class. This sport is brutal on my joints! For several years I had suffered pain in my neck and lower back, shoulders and knees and injury to both rotor cuffs. The culmination of severe pain and weakness in both shoulders had stopped me from competing. Then it all changed…. I met Dr. Hoffman and I got better! During my first treatment, I drilled him with every question I could think of and Dr. Hoffman answered every one thoroughly and to my satisfaction. The adjustments were different – a lot less forceful then I had been receiving from previous chiropractors. I started to improve immediately! There was less pain in both shoulders and I regained my strength slowly. I continue to see Dr. Hoffman to prevent this injury from coming back and maintenance adjustments keep me in top performance. He is the only chiropractor I trust to help me and the reason I drive three hours to do so.” Dino, Edmonton

TMJ & Chiropractic Care

“I used to wake up hurting and needed medication for the TMJ pain. After coming to the clinic, I seldom wake up in pain and haven’t had to take meds. I just feel better overall, and definitely enjoy not having pain in my jaw! I also sleep better. There is very little wait time.” Dayna, Red Deer, Alberta

“I had an extremely tense jaw that I couldn’t open. Since coming to Dr. Hoffman I can now eat a steak! It is so good to be able to open my mouth and enjoy food.” Michelle, Red Deer, Alberta

“I have had terrible jaw pain for about six years. I had been diagnosed with TMJ and I went to a very expensive specialized dentist and also tried acupuncture. Nothing had the lasting effect I was looking for. I was also having neck, back, and hip pain that required me to take nine pain killers a day. After seeing Dr. Norm my pain has been reduced tremendously and I no longer take any pain pills. I have more energy too. With Dr. Hoffman’s unique techniques I have had better results than with anything else I’ve ever tried. I feel 100% better.” Stephanie, Red Deer, Alberta


Multiple Symptoms & Chiropractic Care

“I had pain in my back, feet, shoulders and neck all of the time. I used rubbing creams, sleeping pills, and all kinds of anti-inflammatory pills. This went on for 28 years! My stomach couldn’t take the pills anymore and I was so unhappy. This has all changed since seeing Dr. Norm. I am happier, not in pain, and sleeping through the night without pills. I can’t believe it! It is like a miracle.” Jean, Rimbey, Alberta

“Before receiving chiropractic care, I was in constant pain with memory loss, fatigue, headaches and anxiety. After only a short while, the pain has decreased significantly. Now I can get my housework done and life is more enjoyable” Crystall, Innisfail, Alberta

“I came to Dr. Hoffman with back, neck, shoulder pain, and in emotional turmoil. After seeing Dr. Hoffman I feel more relaxed because the pain has been reduced. Life is enjoyable and good again. I have more energy and am able to do things I have not been able to do for sometime.” Sheldon, Red Deer, Alberta

“Before seeing Dr. Hoffman I was uptight, had neck pain, sleeplessness and unable to be mobile without feeling stiff. I now have no pain, sleep well, and feel 100% better.

I am able to meet challenges of every day living with a better attitude.” Trudy
