Babies & Chiropractic Care

“After my twin babies were born, I noticed that one was having trouble latching on and nursing in the traditional cradle hold. She seemed to get very frustrated and cried a lot. Dr. Hoffman examined her at seven days of age and found that her neck would only turn so much on the one side. He adjusted her and since then she has been nursing in all position without any trouble at all. My deepest thanks to Dr. Hoffman for his care for me and my babies.” Colleen, Red Deer, Alberta

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

I have even succeeded in making it past the first stage of the National Team trials.” Carmen, Bowden, Alberta

Ears & Chiropractic Care

“Our daughter was experiencing chronic ear infections before receiving chiropractic care at Hoffman Chiropractic & Wellness. After a few chiropractic care sessions our daughter no longer has ear infections related to colds, flus or swimming. We are now able to enjoy swimming again as a family without the concern of our daughter getting an ear infection. Chiropractic care will always be a part of our families health & wellness care!” Lisa, Red Deer, Alberta

“I brought my three year old daughter in to see Dr. Norm because of her constant ear infections. For the previous two years she had spent most of the time taking antibiotics and now there was a possibility that she would have to have tubes in her ears. Since receiving care, her ear infections have been significantly reduced. She did not have to have the tubes put in and her antibiotic intake has been reduced by 75%. As a side benefit, my daughter is in a far better mood after her adjustments, so I often bring her in when she is whiny and hyperactive.”

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

Sleeping Problems & Chiropractic Care

Hoffman Chiropractic

Reagan Dale Neis

“I had such low energy in the daytime because of my inability to sleep and also to relax. After 3 treatments I literally was sleeping 50% better. Within 6 treatments, I was 70% better and back to a normal sleeping pattern. I’m experiencing dreams for the first time in at least two years. I have far more energy in the day.I have a completely different view of chiropractic care after coming to this office. I love that Dr. Hoffman has not just a vast knowledge of the human body from a medical stand point but also looks for ways to heal the body from a homeopathic stand point, introducing vitamins, herbs and many different types of chiropractic care into the treatments to give patients a total health makeover.” Reagan Dale Neis, Actress (Material Girls, Maybe It’s Me (TV Series), A Minute with Stan Hooper (TV Series), Malcolm in the Middle)

“I began chiropractic because I couldn’t sleep due to a violent home invasion. I would sleep 1-2 hours at a time. The very first night I saw Dr. HoffmanI got my first 8hr sleep in 5 years. I now continue to go to keep me healthy and able to sleep and to be able to participate in physical activities. I’m not always tired and on edge, I have more energy and I am more peaceful.”

“I was having trouble with sleeplessness. Now I only wake once or twice a night. I am more awake at work and have more energy.” Bonnie

Stomach Pain & Chiropractic Care

I now experience only sporadic pain and bloating and he has had me allergy tested as well and discovered that I am allergic to wheat. I have less irritability; I’m not as moody, have better focus and am all around more relaxed and happy!” Lauren

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

Women & Chiropractic Care

“I started care because of lower back pain I was experiencing. But I was also experiencing such severe menstrual cramps that I would be incapacitated for at least a day each month. I had been like this since I could remember. After a very gentle adjustment to my tailbone, my lower back pain went away almost immediately. And my cramps have almost completely disappeared. It’s always amazes me what chiropractic can do”

“I had constant pain in my neck, lower back, hips, knees, ankles, and wrists. I especially had heavy/painful cramping during my menstrual cycle. I now have less pain and when I maintain my adjustments my menstrual cycle is mild and no cramps at all!” J.K., Edmonton, 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

“I was having headaches, nausea, dizzy spells, blackouts, severe back aches, severe asthma, and stomach cramps. I now don’t have any of these complaints – I don’t even use my inhaler anymore. I can walk farther than across the room and I can sleep through the night.” Lisa

“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
