Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I searched, for years, for good quality chiropractic care. I had back surgery while serving in the military, and struggled to find a chiropractor who I felt gave me the plan and results I was trying to obtain. A car accident landed me in Dr. Kraig’s care. He was extremely thorough, involving, and passionate about helping me feel better again, not just from the accident, but in my everyday life. We discussed and agreed on a treatment plan. Let me just say RESULTS!! Within a couple weeks of the accident my back felt better than it had BEFORE my military service. I can breathe easier, I stand up straight again, and playtime with my son has been much better, and sometimes rougher! Dr. Kraig knows my demanding work schedule and has been more than accommodating in working around it. It is truly amazing how easy results can come with a doctor who really CARES about his patients and their well being, not just their pocketbook."
    David Reisenbichler, Galien, MI, Cost Analyst
  • "Dr. Kraig is personable and caring. He goes the extra mile, and will come in after hours when such a situation arises for a patient. He is there for YOU and YOUR health needs!"
    Gina B, St. Joseph, MI, Teacher
  • "Friendly, reassuring and very professional... but also made me laugh because he knew I was nervous. I was impressed with his ability to explain the problems he saw and walked me through every step he was taking in the treatment process. Staff was courteous and willing to work around MY schedule, which you just don't get these days! Highly recommended!"
    Angel M, Benton Harbor, MI

    Our shoulder joints have the greatest range of motion of any of the musculoskeletal joints in our bodies.

The glenohumeral joint is a ball-and-socket joint and the acromioclavicular joint is a gliding joint. ...

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
