Dorothy – Knee pain
” I’m 86 years old and I had to have knee replacement surgery on my right knee 4 years ago. My left knee started hurting a year ago and I didn’t want to have surgery on my left knee, so I tried cold laser therapy with Dr. Jean Gibson. My pain level started at an 8 out of 10, and after only 3 treatments, I have no pain! I highly recommend cold laser therapy with Dr. Gibson”
Ron – Low Back Pain
“Just love her, Been going for years, she has been the only one to relieve me of pain in my lower back and she does it without turning me into a pretzel.”
DeAnna – Knee Pain
“Thank goodness for the Gibson Center and their use of the Cold Laser. I had a hurt knee and I had tried everything for thepain and several knee braces to keep myself walking. Just 3 sessions with the laser therapy and I had absolute “no pain”. When I started the therapy I placed the pain at 7. From 7 to 0 in 3 sessions. How great!”
Emily – Low Back Pain
“My name is Emily, and I have been suffering with back pain for some time. I woke up one day, back in 2001, and was in excruciating pain. I went to the hospital and after many tests was told that I had two bulging discs in my lumbar spine. I tried physical therapy, ingested steroids, muscle relaxers, steroid injections, and later chiropractic adjustments, but the pain would continue to reoccur about once a year. Then, after a surgery on my foot in 2011, I twisted on the couch with my foot elevated and couldn’t move. I was stuck, on the couch, in some of the worst pain of my life for weeks. I went back to chiropractic, corticosteroids, and the exercises I had been given in 2001, but nothing was helping. The pain was almost continuously reoccurring. I started trying to seek out new solutions to an old problem, but living in Waco, Texas, seeking out top-level care was difficult. Eventually, in early 2015 the pain was intense in my hip/buttocks as well as my calf and ankle, and I couldn’t do anything comfortably. Sleeping was excruciating, and when I walked, I was bent like a boomerang. I was scanned for a new MRI, with the results being that my two bulging discs, had turned into four bulging discs, with one definite herniation. The prognosis was not great. Everyone told me that the problem was for life, and that it was never going to get any better, including my chiropractor in Waco. At only 35 years of age, I was completely unwilling to accept an invasive solution, and this was met with much resistance from the medical community. Then, my general practitioner refused to continue to see me, as the pain killer, hydrocodone, had recently been reclassified by the FDA, so she washed her hands of the entire problem.I was referred to pain management, where they suggested surgery, and life-long problems, with no chance of recovery, along with some nerve deadening procedures, and more of the useless steroid injections. I was referred to physical therapy, who also suggested I should seek surgery, and who then tried to put me through the paces of rigorous strength training, along with TENS therapy, which was expensive and had no noticeable effect. After hearing surgery from perhaps the sixth provider, and reaching a point of hopelessness that anything could be done, I called Dr. D. Jean Gibson. She told me that not only did I not need surgery, but the discs could also heal themselves given the proper encouragement!The almost eight hour drive to Fayetteville wasn’t easy, so when I arrived at Dr Jean’s office, I was in an eight out of ten pain. We devised a plan where I would see her for eight straight weekdays, receiving KST adjustments, Trigger Point Therapy, and Cold Laser Therapy for the pain. After the first appointment I saw a marked increase in range of motion, as well as a decrease in pain. In fact, during the first Cold Laser treatment, I could feel the pain move out of my leg, and out of my hip, settling closer to the spine! Dr. Jean also gave me some light stretches to do at home.By then end of the eighth appointment, I was down to a two out of ten on the pain scale. Almost miraculously, I was walking more upright, and was easily able to make the long drive home. Dr. Jean made sure that when I left, I left with a plan for what kinds of providers to seek out in Waco, as well as some home devices that would help me with the dearth of back support in Waco. While things are not perfect, the pain reduction and increased range of motion has allowed me to commute to Dallas, an hour and a half drive, in order to seek out non-invasive treatments. I now have a regimen that includes physical therapy, to correct my gait and strengthen my core, in order to prevent future exacerbations in the lumbar area of my spine, combined with the home traction and negative ionization STIM treatments recommended by Dr. Jean, in order to help my back heal itself. Only one month later, I now have full range of movement, can sit on the floor, and can almost sleep through the night. My need for painkillers has been severely reduced, and my quality of life is back to normal. I have long stretches of every day where I have no pain at all, and am building back my strength. After suffering with a bad back for 14 years, I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel, when my back is no longer a problem. It won’t happen instantly, but I have the hope, the lessened pain, and the plan necessary to see my discs through to their full recovery. I can never thank Dr. Jean enough for the things she has done for me. In fact, tomorrow, I’m getting in my car to go back to see Dr. Jean, so that she can follow up with some more treatments before setting off on a three–month adventure abroad, something I could have never considered only a few months ago. I have recommended to everyone I know with back problems, and without, to go to see Dr. Jean. Her compassion, knowledge, skills, and problem solving are a winning combination for devising non-invasive solutions to complicated health problems. Thanks Dr. Jean!”
Walker – Food Allergies
“My son Walker used to have food allergies. He would have problems with dairy and yeast products. He used to have stomach aches and break out really bad when having foods that he could not have for 6 years. He couldn’t eat food like most kids in his class. Now that he has had the BAX treatments at Dr. Gibson’s clinic, he can have any dairy products or yeast products. We highly recommend The Gibson Center. We see a big difference in him; he is feeling so much better, even some of the family see a difference in Walker. Thanks again to The Gibson Center they helped a lot with my son!”
Jessica – Low Back & Neck Pain
“I was suffering with lower back/hip pain, neck/headache pain, and fatigue. I was to the point I was hardly moving around after work. Since I started seeing Dr. Gibson for the trigger point therapy and chiropractic adjustments, my hips are back aligned, the swelling in my lower back is gone, my neck/ headaches are gone! Dr. Gibson has helped me to live freely again!”
Leah – Allergies
“I suffered from chronic allergies; constant watery eyes, sneezing 30+ times a day, occasional congestion, headaches, fatigue, etc. I never had allergies as a child, but beginning as seasonal allergies in college, these symptoms worsened year after year. Until recently, I was receiving painful allergy shots, taking 4 different allergy medications, and eating Benadryl like candy. I even changed offices as work to avoid the air vents in the building, hoping this would give me relief.
Dr. D. Jean Gibson told me about the laser therapy for allergies, and I thought “I’ve tried everything else…what could it hurt?!” I am so glad that I trusted her and underwent this therapy. My symptoms have diminished drastically, and I have not had a headache in weeks. I would absolutely recommend this therapy to anyone who has slight to severe symptoms. Try this before you endure another allergy shot.”
Velma – Headache
“For the last three years I had headaches dizzyness threw-up a lot. I was sent to physical therapy different ear doctors given many pain pills. Nothing worked until I started going to Dr. Jean Gibson”
Ragan – Breech Baby
“When I saw my Midwife on my due date, she told me that my baby was posterior, which could delay going into labor and cause painful back labor. After walking and trying different exercises to get the baby to turn, I was still pregnant three days later. Dr. Gibson was able to work me in for an adjustment and acupuncture. I saw Dr. Gibson at 10:00 a.m. on a Monday. She gave me an adjustment using the Webster technique which is used to turn babies. That night around 7 p.m, I went into labor. When we got to the birth center, the baby had turned to the optimal position and my labor was fast from there. I gave birth to my son at 12:19 a.m. after just a few hard pushes and no epidural. We arrived home at 4:30 a.m. Thank you Dr. Gibson!”
Megan – Shoulder Pain
“I have been coping with a painful left shoulder off and on since 2011. I have seen various physical therapists, chiropractors, and massage therapists with no diagnosis and minimal relief. Along the way I’ve learned many things that would cause it to get better or worse, but this past November the pain came back full force and was relentless. There was nothing that I could do to make it better. The pain was probably at a 7/10 most of the day, regardless of my activity, affecting my work, family life, and exercise. Being in my early 30s, I was very discouraged at having to deal with a potentially chronic condition of this magnitude. Then I was referred to Dr. Gibson…in just my first appointment with her, she was able to assess my problem and begin treatment. I felt relief after that first visit, and am now pain free! I feel like a new person! Dr. Gibson’s experience, intellect, and personalized service has given me my quality of life back. It gives me great comfort in knowing that if my pain does return, I know exactly who to go to to fix it and that’s probably one of the best gifts of all.”
Cheryl – Knee Pain
“I had experienced pain in my knees for several weeks with swelling and pain. After my second cold laser treatment therapy by Dr. Gibson my pain had decreased from a level of 7 to a level of 2. It was amazing and I don’t even remember the last time I took Tylenol! I am so grateful for Dr. Gibson and her professional staff.”
Mike -Knee Pain
“I suffered from knee pain, swelling and stiffness all summer. I could not run at my usual pace because of the pain. I came to see Dr. Jean and in 15 minutes after her work with an adjusting instruments, I was back to my usual movement without any pain. This stuff works!”
Joseph -Knee Pain
“Upon my arrival at The Gibson Center, I had a hard time getting out of my car because of the pain in my knees. Before treatment, my pain was a 9 out of a 10. After 4 cold laser treatments, my pain level is at a 1-3 out of 10. I have been able to work around the house and farm with much less pain. Standing for up to 6 hours and carrying light loads, working and playing with grandchildren has improved. Thank you for your treatment.”
Sharon – Neck Pain
“Dr. Jean Gibson is a wonderful doctor. When I came to her, my pain level was an 8. It is now a 1. I have tried other chiropractors with limited success. I couldn’t sleep on my right side – now I can. I have had 2 acupuncture sessions and 2 cold laser treatments.”
Scott – Neck & Shoulder Pain
“I was in constant pain in my neck and shoulder. I had been to a neurosurgeon and pain doctor for injections without good results. The neurosurgeon was going to put plates in my neck. I decided against that and went to Dr. Gibson. After only 1 visit I saw improvement and by visit 6 the pain was gone in my neck and shoulder. I was given advice on how to prevent the same problems in the future. I am a very happy man. Thank you, Dr. Gibson.”
Ted – Mid-Back Pain
“I came to Dr. Jean Gibson as a last resort for a stinging pain in my middle back. I have suffered with this for approximately 15 years. I have been to many doctors over this time and finally gave up because the last one told me that it was all in my head and nothing could be done. Three years later I saw Dr. Gibson’s column in the local paper about Cold Laser acupuncture and I called her. After the first treatment I noticed a slight change in the stinging, but to my surprise my stomach problems of 20 years eased up a lot. She explained to me that the nerves in my middle back relate to digestive issues. After the second treatment my stomach problems were gone. Two weeks later and I can eat things I haven’t been able to in years with no effect. What a blessing! After 4 laser treatments, the stinging in my back has been reduced by about 75% and is now very tolerable.
Thank you Dr. Gibson for believing that I really was in pain and working to correct the problem. I will recommend you to all I know.”
Jacob – Ankle Sprain
“I rolled my ankle and sprained it during football practice, and was almost unable to walk. This was on Tuesday, and we had a big game against our biggest rival on Friday. As the starting Quarterback, I was looking at not being able to play for that game, and possibly not the rest of my Senior year season. I went to Dr. Gibson and had 2 treatments with her cold laser. The swelling went down after the first treatment and I could walk on it with no pain. After the second treatment, the swelling was totally gone and I had no pain at all. I played the entire game that Friday night – 3 days after I had sprained it – and we won! I have played every game since with no problems, and we are now headed to the State playoffs. Thank you Dr. Gibson!”
Mason – Allergies
“Prior to treatments with the BAX Aura, my son had extreme allergies – sneezing, stuffy nose and eczema on his face. He would have flare ups whenever he played outside, or was around cut grass – which was often, since he loves the outdoors! He would take allergy medicine, which would make him sleepy and affect his schoolwork. He also would have digestive issues and say his stomach hurt whenever he ate.
After his treatments, he has had no allergy problems – even when around hay and grass. He also said his stomach doesn’t hurt him when he eats anymore. He doesn’t take allergy medicine any longer, and he can eat anything he wants!
I would absolutely recommend this treatment to anyone with seasonal allergies or with stomach problems.”
Jennifer – Asthma
“Ella experienced asthma symptoms about every 2-3 months prior to treatment. Her asthma was a 7 out of a 10 in severity. This was brought on by nasal drainage and usually required steroids and/ or antibiotics. Since her treatments, her asthma is a 1 out of 10, and I’ve noticed much less nasal drip and she has not required any pharmaceutical treatments at all. Yeah!
I would totally recommend this treatment to other parents for their child. It is totally painless, and treats the whole person as opposed to symptoms.”
Shonet – Torn Meniscus in Knee
“I had a torn meniscus disk in my right knee and had surgery to repair it June 2012. I continued to have pain and not trust my knee to support me. After going back to the doctor 7 months after the surgery, I was told “it takes time to heal.” After a year and still no relief, I had Dr. D. Jean Gibson perform Cold Laser Therapy on my right knee. After just one visit, it was awesome. . .not near the pain. I went in for a second session of the Cold Laser Therapy, no pain at all now. It was quick and painless. All I can say, that is an awesome treatment. If I ever have pain elsewhere, I will definitely try the Cold Laser Therapy! Thank you Dr. Jean.”
Jeanne – Low Back Pain
“I recently relocated to Fayetteville, Arkansas and was looking for pain relief from several compressed fractures in my lower back. Previously, I had tried regular Physical Therapy. It was not as effective as I had hoped.
Fortunately, I was referred to Dr. D. Jean Gibson of the Gibson Center. By using Cold Laser Therapy, Dr. Jean has done wonders for me; taking my pain level from a 9/10 to a low of 1/2.
I cannot overly attest to how much the Cold Laser Therapy has helped and given me a better quality of life.”
Claudia – Knee Pain
“I have had knee pain on and off for about 30 years. I usually take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to manage the pain but, for medical reasons, I can no longer take these drugs. I’ve also had Arthroscopy on both knees. I had almost continuous left knee pain starting in January, 2013. I did not want a steroid injection or a knee replacement but I was ready to consider them. I then heard that Dr. Gibson was using Cold Laser treatments for situations such as mine. I had 2 Cold Laser treatments and I have been totally pain free for 3 1/2 months. I recommend, without reservation, Dr. Gibson and Cold Laser treatment.”
Tami – Breech Baby
“I am 37 weeks pregnant and just found out a week ago that my baby was breech. My OB scheduled me for a procedure where he would turn my baby manually, which I had been told was very painful and stressful for me and my baby. I asked Dr. Gibson if there was anything else to do besides this manual turning procedure, and she said there was a technique called the Webster technique, that is not stressful or painful, which is specific to help turn breech babies. After the 3rd treatment by Dr. Gibson, I felt my baby kick, and when I went to the doctor, the ultrasound revealed that the baby had turned and was in the proper position! They monitored me for 2 hours, and the baby stayed in the correct position and everything was fine. No manual turning for us! Thank you Dr. Gibson for helping turn our baby!”
Mary Lou – Low Back Pain
“Before I started Laser Treatment with Dr. Gibson, I had terrible pain in my left lower back, my hip all the way down to my knee. The pain was a 9 out of a 10 for about 3 weeks. I lost my appetite and walking hurt. I had physical therapy about a month, then had 5 laser treatments. My pain is now a 1 or a 2! I am still using a walker some and Tylenol some but not as much as I was!
Dr. Gibson also treated me for Sciatica several years ago and for muscle pain after a car accident using trigger point therapy and acupuncture. They helped so much!”
Kim – Cold Laser Treatment for Flu
“Last winter my son came home from ball practice on a Tuesday with chills and a cough. Thursday morning the doctor diagnosed him with flu and prescribed medication – for a total bill of $300. The next morning, my toddler woke up glassy eyed and coughing. We couldn’t afford another visit and medication bill of $300, as well as medication for the rest of the family, so we called Dr. Gibson’s office to see about getting the laser for the flu. Our family of 5 went just before noon that Friday, and within 30-45 minutes, both kids started coughing, sneezing and blowing gunk out of their noses. Our toddler was back to her happy, active self by the evening, and our son played his basketball game the next day with no problems. I didn’t realize I had been getting sick myself until I inhaled and realized my sinuses were clear. I cannot understand or explain how this works, but I am a firm believer that it does indeed work!”
Lory – My knees are nearly symptom free!
“I had suffered from osteoarthritis in my knees for over 10 years. Because it runs in my family, I assumed my only alternative was knee replacement surgery. My feet were sore from calluses that had developed due to the gait from my painful knees. When a friend told me about Laser Therapy acupuncture, I made an appointment with Dr. Gibson. The results were unbelievable! The inflammation and swelling went down in my knees almost immediately. Now, after 8 laser treatments, my knees are nearly symptom-free! And the customized orthotic shoe inserts have greatly relieved my foot pain!”
Chip – Shoulder & Back Pain
“Two years ago, I had fallen off a horse and broken 9 ribs and 4 vertebrae. I had developed scar tissue and arthritis in my back. Dr. Gibson began her “magic” and within three chiropractic treatments, I was able to easily ambulate areas of my shoulder, back and hips that had been stiff and painful for two years. In total, I had 8 chiropractic treatments, some involving laser therapy to aid in healing of scar tissue, and now I’m ready to ‘get back on the horse!'”
Debbie and Shirley – Headaches & Low Back Pain
“Dr. Gibson has helped my sister and myself tremendously in the short time that we have seen her.My sister Shirley was having daily headaches and low back pain that was affecting her stability when she walked. Shirley is a special needs person, that needs special care.As for myself, Dr. Gibson has performed the KST adjustments, as well as trigger point therapy.The last visit I had with Dr. Gibson, I went in with a headache with the pain level of a “9”.After the adjustment, not even 15 minuets later my pain scale was a ‘2’.Thanks for all that you do Dr. Gibson!!!!”
Christy – Allergies
“I first met Dr. Gibson at a networking event about six months ago. She shared about her unique allergy treatments and I was a little bit intrigued.
Dr. Gibson and I had an appointment so I could learn more about these treatments and I have to say I didn’t completely believe that they would work. It sounded like a sci-fi claim-to-fame to me. However I decided to undergo some of the treatments, give it a try and see what kind of results I could get.
I am so glad that I did. Not only did I get results for some of the things that I was seeking, I also got results for many of the things I didn’t think I’d ever be rid of.I shared with Dr. Gibson about my health history issues with abdominal pain, cramping and general IBS symptoms. She was very excited that she had a solution that could work for me.
A special frequency test lists over 500 substances and tests your body’s reaction to them. The test is performed by placing a blood pressure cuff on your arm and introducing the different bio-frequency signals to your body. These bio-frequencies mimic the bio-frequencies of different substances, including foods, dust, mold, animal dander, pollen and more. A negative reaction to a certain bio-frequency is representative of sensitivity to that substance. Once the substances are identified, the laser treatment begins.
She began to program in specific instructions to the cold laser treatment tool. A cold laser is painlessly applied up and down the spine to give me the infusion of the items that she programmed earlier. I have to report after suffering from these IBS abdominal symptoms for 20+ years, I finally got some relief. I noticed a difference within the first two days and that first week I couldn’t believe that laser treatment actually worked for me! That was six months ago and I’m still having the same results.
These sessions lasted about 10 or 15 minutes in total per visit to her office. During future visits we discovered other items that had very high levels in my body. As Dr. Gibson began programming in the codes to treat the other items that were showing up, I had more and more successes.
I have always been very sensitive to cigarette smoke. So much so that I could not be in the same room with family members who were smokers. I would immediately get all stuffy and sneeze and cough and have trouble breathing. At Thanksgiving this year I spent time with my family in Kansas City and some of them are heavy smokers. I didn’t realize until well into the evening that I had not left the room once due to the smoke. In fact I was sitting right next to the very family members that were smoking and I didn’t have one single reaction. I began to breathe deeply to see if I had any reaction whatsoever. Guess what? No reaction, no symptoms.
That same week I realized something else that had been healed. My husband and I had been house hunting and we had been near many, many rosebushes and I had no reaction. Typically I am allergic to many types of flowers, but roses are the worst. I usually break out into sneezing fits and runny nose and itchy, red, watery eyes. For the first time in many, many years I stood there and just smelled the roses with no adverse reactions.
Also, my body had a very high sensitivity to honeysuckle on the frequency test. High sensitivity is not always negative. It means that my body views these things in different ways. For me, honeysuckle is tied very closely to my childhood. Every time I am near it, I have happy memories. I love to reminisce and ponder on those carefree days. I found it interesting that of all things, honeysuckle came up with such high sensitivity.
Needless to say I am completely sold on Dr. Gibson’s amazing allergy treatment system. This is not painful; in fact, you hardly know anything is happening. Also there is no fussing with needles or medications. What do you have to lose, except your allergies?
I highly encourage you to visit with Dr. Gibson and see if she can help you with any of your ailments, allergies or other issues. So, Dr. Gibson, ‘Beam Me Up!'”
Maureen – Mid & Low Back Pain
“I came to see Dr. Gibson because I had been suffering from severe muscle spasms in my middle and lower back for the past 2 ½ years. My pain was so severe that I couldn’t do normal housework, yard work, routines like that. If I did a lot of standing in one position for a long period of time my back would just spasm up. It got to the point where I just didn’t want to do anything except sit with a heating pad. I saw a pain management specialist for 6 months who did some nerve block and trigger point injections. It didn’t really help and then they told me I had maxed out my treatments. He recommended that I might try acupuncture for the pain. When I consulted Dr. Gibson about doing acupuncture, she thought that Chiropractic might help me more. She used hands on adjusting and a technique called the Koren Specific Technique where she adjusts me with a high speed instrument in the standing position. I really like it. Before I saw Dr. Gibson, my pain was a 10+. Now, I’m like a 2. I highly recommend Dr. Gibson to everyone!”
Lora – Neck & Mid-Back Pain
“I was experiencing pain in my neck and back which just kept getting worse. An old injury from a car accident was coming back to haunt me (again). The “knife-like” feeling in my shoulder would come and go. However, the scariest issue was that now I was constantly waking up in the morning with some numbness in my fingers and arms. I knew I needed to do something about this now and it was probably time to try something different. Over the years, I had tried both physical therapy and chiropractic; however, the numbness scared me and prompted me to try something different. That’s how I ended up at Dr. Jean Gibson’s clinic.
Dr. Gibson treated me with the KST – Koren Specific Technique which involves NO popping or twisting of the spine. This is good for me since I happen to be one who naturally becomes tense during some regular chiropractic adjustments. She also used Trigger Point Therapy. My work schedule didn’t allow me to do the treatments in the desired time frame. However, I was amazed at how fast I experienced relief and how I feel sooo much better now! My overall feeling of “well-being” has definitely improved as well! I’m literally ready to “get back in the saddle” and ride my horses again. I definitely recommend Dr. Jean to others!”
Rachel – Headaches & Back Pain
“I initially went to Dr. Jean because I hurt my back leaning over the
sofa to set my 1 year old down. At the time I had also been
experiencing fatigue, nausea, dizziness, and near constant headaches
for over four months. I had been to four different doctors already
and had a head MRI only to be dismissed or told that there was nothing
wrong with me. I was so tired every day that I was going to bed
before my one-year-old.
While I had not been expecting any help on these other symptoms from a
chiropractor, she not only listened to my complaints, but within a
week my back pain and almost everything else was mostly resolved.
Today, I’m back to normal and rarely experience any of those symptoms.
In truth, I don’t understand how everything she’s doing works, all I
know is that it does. Dr. Jean gave me my life back, and as crazy as
it sounds, I am so glad I hurt my back that day.”
Pete – Back & Leg Pain
“I had been having trouble with my back and leg for about 6 months and it had gotten to the point I could not get down or up without great difficulties. Because of a prior bad session with another chiropractor I was not wanting to go see another one. My wife, who had been to Dr. Gibson before, told me she was going to make an appointment for me and did.
My life is changed and is back to normal thanks to Dr. Gibson and her trigger point therapy and skills. I was able to walk for the MS this past weekend for my daughter-in-law and that meant a lot to me.
I have already recommended Dr. Gibson to my friends and they agree with me. She’s the best!”
Lisa – Success with KST post pregnancy
“I’m writing to share the success I’ve found with Dr. D. Jean Gibson’s KST (Koren Specific Technique) therapy and chiropractic adjustments. I had never been to a chiropractor but I came to see Dr. Jean last year to help relieve a lot of pain following the birth of my first child. I had the sensation of pins and needles all the way down my left and right arms, my spine was out of alignment, my hips were out of alignment, and my feet hurt constantly. Dr. Jean used the KST technique along with the posture pump for several weeks and I’ve seen great relief. I continue to see her when I have occasional hip, back, or neck pain and she has used trigger point therapy (which has made a HUGE difference in my ability to handle stress since the baby was born) as well. I’ve always been a devotee of massage and I occasionally get those as well to help deal with the stress of my job. I have recommended Dr. Jean to dozens of friends (several of whom are regular clients of hers now), particularly those who are pregnant or who have recently given birth. I recommend Dr. Jean without reservation to anyone who has either chronic or intermittent spinal pain.”
Jennifer – Low Back Pain & Adrenal Fatigue
“I came to Dr. Gibson because I was suffering from severe low back pain that had progressively worsened until I couldn’t do simple household chores or even walk the dogs.
Thanks to Dr. Gibson, I am finally pain free! She discovered that I was suffering from adrenal fatigue. Through a combination of chiropractic adjustments and supplements and diet changes specific to adrenal gland support, she has completely turned my life around. Not only has the back pain disappeared, but I also have so much more energy! My chores are finished in half the time and I can enjoy exercising again. My dogs are especially pleased with my recovery as I take them on long walks now. We can even go hiking now that I am not dependent on the relief of a park bench every few minutes.
Of course, everyone experiencing pain or discomfort will have their own unique path to recovery and that is what is so wonderful about the Allergy and Stress Relief Center. Dr. Gibson and her staff have so many tools, so many different ways to approach and treat whatever is troubling you. I would absolutely recommend this office to anyone and truly bless the day that I found Dr. Gibson and her wonderful staff.”
Anonymous – Thank you for helping my daughter!
“In June 2011, my three year old daughter became seriously ill. She was in chronic, debilitating pain; she would scream in agony until she wet her pants. Before, she had been an energetic, outgoing girl, but the illness sapped her of what made her “her”. She would lay listless in my lap for hours just having her tummy rubbed. We had to sleep together, what little sleep we got. Neither of us were getting more that 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night because of her overwhelming pain. The only two things that helped were ibuprofen and steroids, neither of which you want to take very much of, especially when you are that young. At one point, she was on a rotation of meds that were given every 3 hours around the clock, and even then, her pain was barely tolerable. She went to the emergency room once because the pain was so severe. The trip did nothing but make her terrified of needles and hospitals. Our doctor was at a complete loss and sent us to the children’s hospital in Little Rock after we saw an allergist in northwest Arkansas. None of them were helpful. No one had any answers.
Shortly before her illness, her father and I got divorced, and right before her illness, the place we had lived as a family before the separation (and where her father still lived), was destroyed by the tornado in Joplin. Her dog died in the storm, and she lost everything. Her father survived, but that was about it. After the tornado, she got a very bad stomach virus that we speculate caused very bad damage to her small intestine. The stress made the illness worse and healing almost impossible. But that’s all just speculation. Not a single doctor we saw could ever give us an answer.
During this time, my mom (who is also a patient of Dr. Gibson’s) told her about what had been happening with my daughter. How much pain she was in, how we were all struggling with it. Honestly, I think my daughter dealt with it the best, and she was the one that was sick. Dr. Gibson offered, without hesitation, to help us. She started treating my daughter almost every day of the week using the laser bio feedback therapy, working us into their busy schedule.
While we were doing this treatment, I was still pursuing traditional medical alternatives as well. I brought her to see a pediatric gastroenterologist who immediately jumped to wanting to do a scope and colonoscopy, under general anesthesia, and take biopsies.
But by this time, after a couple of weeks of treatment with Dr. Gibson and Lisa, my daughter was getting better. I declined the gastroenterologist’s procedure.
All of a sudden, after three months that felt like three years of fear and pain, my daughter suddenly felt better. She miraculously went back to being my sweet little princess wild thing. The illness disappeared as fast as it had arrived, overnight.
We don’t know what caused it or what the name of her illness was. But you don’t need a name to have it shake your life to pieces. And Dr. Gibson did not need a name to treat it.
My daughter was on so many different medicines, none of which she took for long enough to have caused her healing. The allergist didn’t give us any answers. The internist didn’t help us. The emergency room was a disaster. The only longterm treatment she had was from Dr. Gibson using the biofeedback therapy, and I don’t doubt for a second that this is what got my baby back to being a typical, overly energetic three year old. She even stopped having nightmares about the tornado.
I knew it helped with allergies. Both myself and my father had done the treatment. It saved me from seriously debilitating food sensitivities. Now, I can have a normal social life again, eating out with friends and not getting sick every time. My dad was able to move back to his home after having to move away because his allergies to the area were so severe it left him coughing up blood.
But the real miracle is the healing of my daughter. I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to partake of this therapy. I don’t know where we would be without it, and I don’t want to think about it.
All I think about is what a tremendous blessing it is to finally have my sweet little princess wild thing back.
I know this all sounds too good to be true, but every part of it is. In fact, this is just an abbreviated version of the story. It is impossible to convey the depth of dread you feel when you hear doctors speculating that your child had debilitating diseases that can lead to death, that will plague her for the rest of her life. I am not exaggerating when I say that this has been the single most terrifying and hopeless time of my life.
I can never, ever thank Dr. Gibson and Lisa enough for their kind help.”
Nicole – Food Allergies
“I have suffered from severe food allergies my whole life. I tried food avoidance and antihistamines but they didn’t help I was referred to Dr. Gibson to try Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy. Before the laser treatments, my life was severely limited by my food allergies and I had very high anxiety when eating out or traveling. I would get incredibly sick at the slightest exposure. Now, I can eat at many more places without fear, and I have not had a single major allergic reaction since completing the treatments. This therapy has truly changed my life and given me back a quality of life I never thought I would enjoy again!”
Pat – Headache & Neck Pain
“I came to see Dr. Jean for my headaches and neck pain. She used the Koren Specific Technique to adjust my cranial bones. After the treatment, my vision improved so much that I passed the driver license test without wearing my contacts. I could read all of the letters clearly! And I no longer have any more headaches or neck pain and I can move my neck better.”
Dorothy – Low Back Pain
“I have been suffering from constant, severe low back pain for over a year. I took pain pills but they did not help. I was referred to Dr. Gibson by a friend of mine. Dr. Gibson used the Koren Specific Technique to adjust me while I was standing. I now have no pain! It has been a miracle for me. I would have never dreamed my back would be as pain free.”
Patti – Hip & Knee Pain
“I was about to go shopping for a fashionable cane (bad hip and knee) when I decided to ask co-workers about a chiropractor. Dr. Jean was mentioned by everyone quizzed. Not only have my hip and knee improved greatly (better movement with much less pain), I have increased energy and lower stress due to state-of-the-art chiropractic care, acupuncture and and NSRT (neurological stress reduction therapy). Dr. Jean and her staff are really special.”
Lee – Allergies
“I have suffered from allergies for the last 20 years. I have tried allergy shots, over the counter pills, sprays, everything and nothing worked long term. So, I decided to try Dr. Gibson’s Stress Reduction Therapy. I consider the treatment very successful because I no longer take any (as in none) medication for my allergies and my last treatment was over a month ago. I sleep better and, in general, feel better. I would highly recommend this therapy for anyone with allergies.”
Peggy – Depression & Fatigue
“About 5 years ago, I got depressed and felt tired and draggy all the time. Dr. Gibson helped me feel better with supplements and adjustments but I still didn’t feel good. After the first of this year, she told me about Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy. I decided to try it because I was desperate to feel better.
After the first treatment I had increased energy. I completed all 10 treatments and I’m happy to say I feel better than I have in years. I have more energy and a better outlook. I don’t have the constant post nasal drip any more. My eyes aren’t itchy and burning like they always were this time of year. I’m so thankful Dr. Gibson learned about this new therapy. It has already made a big difference in my life.”
Linda – Joint & Muscle Pain
“I first visited Dr. Gibson carrying a bouquet of complaints that included low energy, joint pains and muscle pains. One year after experiencing non-invasive and non-prescription solutions I am more physically energetic and, more importantly, my core energy is increased, focused, and back in charge. Joint pain has become incidental and no longer determines my plans for the day. I am therefore able to again exercise regularly so my future is improved as well!”
Patricia – Acupuncture
“Before Acupuncture, I had difficulty chewing food without pain. I couldn’t keep dental appointments due to pain. I couldn’t bend down, talk, sleep on my side, sip from a straw, kiss, swallow, put on makeup or brush my teeth without pain. I couldn’t even have a fan blow in my face, and I couldn’t go into the cold without pain. I tried tegretol as well as other medications, but they left me half drowsy, and a mouth guard at night brought me some relief while sleeping, but did nothing during the day.
After Acupuncture, I feel like normal. This is no pain in everyday living like walking in cold wind, drinking, sipping through a straw, or biting into an apple. Makeup application is enjoyable. Movement does not bring on any pain. I am pain medication free. My vocation as a teacher is a joy now! I can sleep well on my back or my side! I have more confidence that pain is not going to control my life. I do not have to remember medication regiments. I can go out, pray aloud and enjoy a delicious meal with loved ones. Walking, talking, eating, working, driving with the air on are now a part of my normal, pain free life.”
Dan – Smoking Cessation
“I smoked for over 38 years and when I found out that my best friend from kindergarten had stopped smoking for three months using the ‘Just Stop’ therapy, I wanted to try it as well. I found out that Dr. Gibson was the only doctor in Arkansas using this therapy so I called and made an appointment. I drove round trip a total of 6 hours 3 times in 1 week for a total of 3 treatments. Since that first treatment, I have not smoked one cigarette nor have I had the craving to do so. It has been almost 3 months! I am so happy I did this and would recommend this therapy to anyone who wants to quit smoking”
Sandy – Acupuncture
“Before acupuncture, it was almost impossible to walk, stand, or sit. After just a couple of treatments the pain had subsided greatly. I’m active again and look forward to a pain free life thanks to Dr. Gibson and acupuncture.”
Judy – Egg, Dairy, Sugars & Wheat Allergy
“I have been treated by Dr. Gibson for eggs, dairy, sugars, and wheat. I am now able to eat these foods with no problem.
Previous to my treatments of these foods, when I ate them I would have flu-like symptoms anywhere from one to four days, including extreme fatigue, muscle and joint aches and pains, and itchy and teary eyes and a runny nose. It is so nice to be able to eat these foods again with no problem.”
Peggy – Energy & Enthusiasm Returned
“Five years ago my husband passed away. At that time, my mother was bedfast in a nursing home. I got up early every morning to go feed her breakfast at 7:00 A.M. With the loss of my husband and seeing the deteriorating condition of my mom every day, I became very depressed. I was able to function with the help of an anti depressant, but was never able to really have that zeal for life like I did before.
After taking treatments with the BAX-3000, I began to feel enthusiasm for life again. Projects that I’ve put off for months have gotten done and many of my aches and pains have gone away. I wake up every day with a new measure of energy and a will to challenge the day. Now I remember how it was to feel this way, and it feels great!”
Shonet – Fibromyalgia
Shonet was at work one day when she stood up only to suddenly experience “the worst pain of my life”. Two of her co-workers had to carry her to her car, and for weeks her mother had to take care of her. Shonet was unable to feed herself and stated that pain was a 9 out of a 10. Shonet had a few sessions of hands-on adjustments and was able to resume her normal life. She also had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 11 years earlier, so Dr. Gibson recommended acupuncture. Shonet was terrified of needles, but decided to try acupuncture, and after 3 weeks she was ablet o drastically reduce the amount of medication she had been on for 10 years. Today, she is able to live her life relatively pain free and attributes her good health to Dr. Gibson.
Tallie – Back Pain
“My name is Tallie. I am a patient of Dr. Jean Gibson. In 2002, I was having lower back pain causing difficulty when walking and sleepless nights. I called Gibson Chiropractic for an appointment after reading a column in the newspaper about back pain. Dr. Jean Gibson did an evaluation of my back pain which included an X-ray of the spine and locating the area giving me problems. The treatment consisted of spinal adjustment and trigger point therapy for the back muscles. The treatments over several visits alleviated the pain and I felt much better. I continued to seek periodic treatment over the next eight years for shoulder pain, knee strain, and pulled muscles.
Recently I began to have pain in my right hand. The pain was in my fingers and thumb joint. The pain really restricted what activities I could do, such as gardening, golf and crafts. Dr. Jean began acupuncture treatments along with massage and other chiropractic techniques. Several treatments later the pain was reduced and the thumb movement was close to normal. I can now continue to enjoy my many activities.
I will continue to see Dr. Jean on a regular basis to keep my body and joints working so I can enjoy an active lifestyle. This means Dr. Jean you can’t retire anytime soon!”
Pat – Colonics
“Before I came I had a lot of things that were bothering me. I had become very irregular and got to the root of the problem here (BioVeda of Fayetteville) and found out what was causing it – I shouldn’t have taken laxatives and all those things.
Also, I had really bad sinus problems that caused a lot of congestion and would make me feel bad a lot of the time and found some things that maybe was affecting my body in a different way and wasn’t helping me. I was able to come here and get this particular therapy (colonic) done.”
Jerry – Mucous Drainage
“I had a tremendous amount of stress and it had built up over a couple of years. Last January I acquired a kind of a mucus drainage and constantly had to cough and spit it out. It went on 10-12 times a day, spitting up mucus.
I was treated with the new BAX Aura, and it made a difference. It really changed my life. I haven’t had that problem in the last 4-5 weeks. It’s gone forever.”
Bette – Allergies
“Allergies – lots of allergies. I had a stopped up head, my eyes turned red, it would always go down into my throat and into my chest. Now, I’ve been able to pull out my Christmas decorations and decorate my Christmas tree and had no problems whatsoever. I would recommend this treatment!”
David – Stress Reduction Therapy
“Since I have been treated with Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy, my life has changed in many ways. I no longer have to constantly carry allergy medicine because I don’t need it. I no longer feel run down all the time like I used to from allergies. It’s amazing how much better I can breathe through my nose. My eustachian tubes in my ears no longer fill up like they did before treatment. I can go to fairs, camping, etc without having my ears, throat, and eyes be affected with allergies. I am able to be around smokers without it causing my allergies to be affected. I sleep better. I am not affected by lactose or Ibuprofen any more. This therapy works great! I highly recommend it.”
