My name is Bo Garrett. I am a Lead Guitarist with Montgomery Gentry. A few years ago, during a band soundcheck, my left hand suddenly became very cold and subsequently lost ALL of its grip. When I say this, I mean to the point that I didn’t even have the ability to remove the cap from a carton of milk. As a guitarist, this could have been a career ending condition, rendering me incapable of compressing the strings.
In a state of fear, I went to see Dr. Arthur Pangemanan, hoping to avoid surgery or at worst, losing the ability to do what I love most. After X-rays and a very detailed explanation of how a nerve was trapped in my shoulder, we began the treatment process.
After a few visits, I began to notice a gradual return in my ability to squeeze with my left hand and, more importantly, play some guitar. Through chiropractic care and proper exercise and maintenance, I was able to make a full recovery and am able to maintain a very busy tour schedule. My testimonial is not from hearsay. It is from real life experience that happened to me. Chiropractics work! Thank you, Doc Arthur!
"After finding out my baby was still breech after the 32nd week of my pregnancy, my midwife turned it for me with external version.
Unfortunately the baby didn't stay, so she advised me to see a chiropractor who could perform the Webster Technique which is an adjustment specifically designed to balance the bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons of the pelvis and uterus, and has been known to turn breech or malpositioned babies, specifically posterior and breech babies.
I went to my local chiropractor here in Liberty, Casey County who referred me to Dr. Pangemanan about 1.5 hour north from where we live, because he's the only one in the area that is trained to help pregnancy and pediatric cases.
After having a "complete" chiropractic adjustment by Dr. Pangemanan, I later went to have an ultrasound taken and my baby has turned into the proper position! How blessed to have a natural delivery instead of a possible caesarean. Thank you Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca." ~ Norma Shirk.
"I was referred here by my midwife during my pregnancy. I received amazing care the last few weeks before my son was born.
I can honestly say chiropractic care made a huge difference for me. My son was born easily and quickly and I credit Dr. Arthur and chiropractic care with some of that!
Both of my children have been adjusted here, myself and my husband continue to come here on a monthly basis to maintain the correction we have achieved. The atmosphere is so welcoming and Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca are so great with my kids. I highly recommend them to anyone!! ~ Lauren Furlong
"Bailey is our 6 month old, beautiful baby girl. She has been such a precious blessing to our lives. Being a first time mom, I was very fortunate to have an easy delivery with a happy, healthy baby. When I took Bailey for her 4 month check up, her pediatrician asked if I noticed her head tilted to the right. This was something I had never noticed before especially since she wasn't sitting up yet.
As soon as I looked, I could plainly see the tilt in her head to the right. The pediatrician explained that this was "torticollis" and referred me to a Physical Therapist for stretches. I was instantly full of guilt because it was something neither me nor anyone in my family had noticed. I was panicked because it was sticking out like a sore thumb!!
As a previous patient for migraine headaches, I immediately knew that I was going to bring Bailey to see Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca. Several friends and family members have also received treatment at their office and I knew they could help my baby. Dr. Arthur did an excellent job of explaining torticollis to me and my family members. I instantly felt relief to know that she was in good hands and getting treatment to help put the vertebrae back in position instead of just exercises and stretches.
After a few treatments, you could see improvement in the way Bailey held her head. She also became more mobile in turning her head from side to side. Bailey is still continuing treatment but the way she holds her head has greatly improved.
I am very thankful for Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca and the care they have given Bailey. It it like going to see family instead of a doctor. I recommend that every mom bring their baby in for a scan even if everything seems to be going great. There may be something you can't see." ~ Leslie Mitchell
No more migraines!!
"My first adjustment gave me a surprise within 24 hours. Being a chronic sufferer of migraines everyday, they were suddenly gone. I've had migraines for so long that I can't remember when I didn't have one. Now I can tell you when my migraines stopped and how long they've been gone. I feel the best ever now, thanks to Dr. Arthur & Dr. Rebecca!" ~ Julie Banner
Baby sleep better, no more torticollis
"I started taking my baby, Tristan, to Dr. Arthur when he was only four months old. He would not sleep on his back so I thought maybe something was wrong. His back was out of alignment. Now he was/is much happier over all after getting adjusted. We went twice a week for about a month. Now, we go monthly for routine adjustments. When we went in this week, he got on the table and let Dr. Arthur work on him without me having to hold him:-) I would highly recommend anyone with kids to go see Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca so they won't have problems as they get older. The whole staff is great!" ~ Melanie Johnson
Easy Labor, Successful VBAC, No More Constipation!
"I received chiropractic care during my pregnancy to prepare for the birth I wanted. I was thrilled to be able to have a successful VBAC with a short labor with no medical intervention. Now, my newborn is seen by Dr. Arthur for trouble with constipation. She has a bowel movement within an hour of every chiropractic visit. We have been thrilled with the care and the benefits associated with routine visits. The best thing is the personal attention and thoughtful education about overall health." ~ Kristin Hartley Garfie
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
NECK + BACK PAIN + SLEEP
If you have been "dealing with" your back or neck pain for so long isn't it time to do something about it? These guys will take extreme care of you and your back. Just an incredible experience every time I visit the office. Thanks for giving me back my sleep and my life. ~ Brandon Durr, Facebook Page Review
I am feeling better after having a chronic hip problem. The doctors really listen to you and are caring and professional. I feel welcome by the staff every time I come in and feel so much better when I leave. ~ Vicki Riddell-Peavler
Our Jon Paul (10 yrs old) LOVES Drs. Arthur and Rebecca!!! Their office staff is warm, friendly and makes everyone feel like family. We couldn't be happier with our chiropractic treatment! ~ Brittany Price
BETTER BODY FUNCTIONS + MOBILITY
"When I stopped by Pangemanan Chiropractic to check if they could help me, they told me that they would not do anything without first taking x-rays and examination. This told me that they are professionals.
I always doubted chiropractic practice before, but after a few treatments, I was convinced. I had no more pain, easier to move around, and we were able to prevent major problems from happening in the future by taking care of them now.
The staff and the doctors were courteous and helpful, and they respond to my needs and concerns in a timely manner. They are very informative, open for discussions to help meeting my needs, and gave feedbacks.
Before coming to Pangemanan Chiropractic, I always had neck problems, tiredness, aches and pains, slow movement with pain. I used to take pain pills just to get through the day.
I was able to notice improvements since starting care with Dr. Rebecca. I had less pain, moving without pain, standing straighter, good body functions, etc.
The things that set Pangemanan Chiropractic apart from other healthcare clinics out there are the facts that they are very open, friendly, open to discussion, listen to problems, easy painless treatments, for larger results" ~ Jerry Cammack
HEADACHES, DAUGHTER LIMPING
"We began seeing Dr. Arthur and Dr. Rebecca Pangemanan after my 2-year old daughter had fallen and had been limping for almost two weeks. After a few adjustments she was good to go and has been much better ever since.
I was impressed with their work so I made me an appointment. I didn't realize how out-of-whack my spine was until I saw the x-ray and I couldn't believe it; no wonder I was in pain and had such bad headaches. It really is amazing how much better I feel after going to see them the last couple weeks. I highly recommend anyone to give them a try and guarantee you will feel much better." ~ Angie Hornbeck
SEVERE LOWER BACK PAIN
"My first impressions were good. I liked that Pangemanan Chiropractic is a family business and that they are friendly and knowledgeable. I was excited to be fixed and at the same time, educated on the process.
Before coming to Pangemanan Chiropractic I had lived with severe lower back pain for over 5 years. My movement was limited and everyday I hoped that my pain wouldn’t be too bad. My daily activities were limited depending in how I was feeling. Even picking things up off the floor was challenging.
Since starting care I have not been limited or inconvenienced by my back. I used to get up some mornings and have to sit back down due to the pressure in my lower back even before I could finish making breakfast. Now, a full day of chores, cooking, shopping, etc. doesn’t bother me. I don’t have to get my husband to do quite as much for me now.
Pangemanan Chiropractic is great. They are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. They know you when you walk in. Having a doctor that not only knows your name, but your condition and just you in general is great.” ~ Michelle Womack
HERNIATED DISC, TINGLING NUMBNESS, FEET
"I began seeing Dr. Rebecca Pangemanan in May 2006, after herniating discs in my lower back about 1 ½ years earlier. As a result of my injury, I had suffered numb and tingling feet for about 15 months. (This is in addition to the low back pain I have suffered for more than 20 years.) The numbness and tingling were a great improvement over the excruciating pain that had radiated down my leg for about three months immediately after the injury, so I tried to minimize my complaining. However, the injury changed my life.
At the acute stage, my general practitioner had contributed her advice, a referral to a physical therapist and a neurosurgeon, and a prescription for pain medicine and anti-inflammatories.
The neurosurgeon, after telling me I was not a surgical candidate, added additional advice about modifying and limiting my activities and told me that it would take “a long time” for the tingling and numbness in my feet to disappear. An excellent physical therapist helped me deal with the pain during the acute stages, provided instruction and guidance for exercises and stretches to strengthen my back and core muscles to minimize the likelihood of re-injury, and encouraged me to remain as active as possible.
I have always been very active. I love working around my home—everything from cutting and clearing huge bushes and small trees on the 10 acres where I live to cleaning gutters, power-washing the siding and deck, and stripping wallpaper and painting rooms in the old house where I live. I have jogged for about 25 years, and I hike, cross-country and downhill ski, play very bad tennis, ride a bike, and canoe a bit.
For the 15 months before I saw Dr. Rebecca, I substantially limited these activities, and often was in a foul mood about it. We began hiring a nephew to do much of the yard work that I loved. He, and not I, helped clear bushes, make a wall for the flower garden, and shovel topsoil. Last fall, he climbed the ladder to power wash the siding on the second story of the house. He carried ladders and moved furniture. I did almost none of this. Additionally, I almost never carried groceries into the house or carried my own suitcase or laptop when I traveled. I quit running, canoeing and downhill skiing, and reduced the level of intensity of my other sports.
After 15 months of this life, not only had my bad mood and the tingling and numbness in my feet continued, but I also started having severe foot pain. This added complication finally pushed me to seek additional treatment. While I was trying to figure out who to see and where to go, I talked with my new general practitioner about my symptoms and my concern about permanent nerve damage. He changed my anti-inflammatory medication but was not able to offer much other help. During this same time, I encountered Dr. Rebecca at a health fair. We discussed my symptoms and concerns, and she suggested I come in for diagnostic tests and a consultation. Since then, she has changed my life again, and this time for the better.
Within three weeks of starting treatment with Dr. Rebecca, my foot pain was virtually gone. Although the pain occasionally comes back, the intensity is dramatically reduced and it is of short duration. The low back pain I have lived with for most of my life has decreased each month, and is usually nonexistent. While I still have some tingling and numbness in my feet, the intensity is substantially reduced and I often can make it disappear by simply changing my position.
This fall, after four months of treatment with Dr. Rebecca, I have cleared brush, moved furniture, lugged a vacuum cleaner around the house, and climbed on a ladder to power wash siding and paint walls and a ceiling. I often carry my own suitcase and computer now when traveling, and I always unload groceries. I rode in an 18-mile bike race this summer, have played some tennis and have hiked several miles on multiple occasions. Dr. Rebecca gets the credit for all of this. My symptoms are substantially improved while, at the same time, my level of activity has increased fairly dramatically. I am regaining my life—Dr. Rebecca has helped me recover functional skills that are important to me. As I continue my chiropractic care with her, I am optimistic that my symptoms will continue to improve and I am confident that she can help me stay active and functional for the future.
Visits to Dr. Rebecca are quick and low stress. Usually my wait is less than 2 minutes, and I almost never wait more than 4-5 minutes. I am almost always in and out of the office in 15 minutes or less.
Several months ago, I referred a friend who had been advised by her medical doctor that surgery was the next step for her carpal tunnel pain. She has been seeing Dr. Rebecca since June and recently told me that she now has only occasional numbness in her hands, but it is infrequent and dramatically reduced in intensity. I referred a second friend who had relatively minor symptoms and is now receiving curative and preventative care from Dr. Arthur. I am a converted skeptic and am most appreciative for the care I am receiving."

SAVES you money
“The largest study on how chiropractic care affects the cost of health care was conducted by American Specialty Health Plans Inc. of San Diego who compared four (4) years of medical claims from two groups: 1 million members with and without chiropractic care.
The findings were published in Archives of Internal Medicine (Oct. 2004) and WebMD, which confirmed that chiropractic care:
• Cut the cost of treating pain by 28%.
• Chiropractic care reduced 41% hospitalizations.
• Reduced back surgeries by 32%.
• Chiropractic care reduced the cost of medical imaging, such as X-rays or MRIs, by 37%."
