When I first came to see you, I was in pain from my ears to my toes. Every muscle and joint was in pain and I could barely walk and I couldn't drive. I had to use both hands to lift a cup of coffee. After you took x-rays and examined them it was music to my ears to hear you say “I think I can help you!” After you gave me a treatment you said “When you get home don’t be alarmed if you feel an electric shock going down your leg”. I came back the next day and told you the shock went up my arm. You told me “Now I am sure I can help you, but it will take some time”. The injury in my neck and lower back were old injuries and you had to go slowly in your treatments. After the second treatment you went into the waiting room and told my wife “don’t worry I will get your husband to drive again”. On the sixth visit I was actually able to drive myself to see you. Thanks to you, I can now drive a truck, car or van. I can even drive a tractor to clear snow off the yard and driveway. Thank you for giving me my life back. Hope God helps and guides your hands to help others as you helped me.

I have been living with pain in my back and neck for a lot of years. I was also having dizzy spells, to the point where I was scared to walk too far or ride my bike. I went to the doctor and he sent me for an x-ray and a scan. They showed that my neck had been fractured a long time ago. I have a birth defect in my lower back, osteoarthritis and degenerated discs in my back. I asked him if I should go to a chiropractor and he said that wasn’t a good idea as they might twist or turn my neck and make it worse. I thought that there was nowhere else to go. I was also getting depressed, thinking I have to live with this. One day I was talking with a friend about my situation and she suggested that I try her chiropractor. I mentioned to her what the doctor had said and she said the one she goes to isn’t rough. I thought, “oh well, it can’t get any worse”. I came here three months ago, you x-rayed me, told me you could help me but it wouldn’t happen overnight, because my back didn’t get like this overnight. You set me up with a plan and it’s working. I am following the care plan. It has been three months and I am off Tylenol. I hardly have any more dizziness, I can sleep most nights and pain is minimal. I am also riding my bike and going out again. With the help of my chiropractor, a positive attitude, wild salmon oil, glucosamine sulfate and peace of mind, I am thanking God for putting you in my path and giving you the knowledge to do this work. God wants us to have an abundant life and that means living healthy and without pain. Thank you Dr Diocee for your care.

For twenty years, I have been going to clinics and getting pain killers and body massages that would last for a day or two until April 2006 when Dr Diocee helped me change my ways and better myself. I had no feeling in my left arm, sore hips and legs, problems driving long distances and wasn't sleeping well. I needed help to get out of bed. It was a slow process but with time and patience, exercise and doing what I was told, my problems got better and my aches disappeared. I can play with my grandchildren, help my friends and family with yard work, shovel, rake, carry wood and wake up with no pain and enjoy the next day. Knowing that Dr Diocee is there for me anytime and never giving up with his advice and treatments is very satisfying.

My neck was paining me to the extent that I was having headaches and had a hard time turning my head. Also my lower back was often aching. I had a hard time doing simple tasks in the house like vacuuming and dusting. Also, I enjoyed weight training before but was unable to do most of what I used to. I now feel so much better! I can now move my head any way I want to. My headaches are gone and my back has no more pain. I am now back into weight lifting and long distance walking. These things are very important to me. I’m in a better frame of mind and life in general has improved! Not only has my life improved physically but I find that my memory has improved and my asthma is not as acute as it was. So all in all, my whole being is better. I believe that chiropractic treatments can only make things better for anyone who uses them!

I was referred to Dr. Diocee by a co-worker after injuring my lower back at work. I couldn’t sleep, sit or walk without major pain. After four weeks of treatments, I was back to work. I was able to walk, sleep and sit without major pain. I felt better all around. Without the side effects of drugs, etc, Dr. Diocee has been able to give me back the physical strength to get back doing all the activities I love to do. You can’t measure how good the improvement in my abilities have been since seeing Dr. Diocee. Chiropractic is important to me because of the care Dr. Diocee has given to me. I was not a believer in chiropractic before. I am now. Dr. Diocee is the best caregiver I’ve had. He explained everything to me. I feel he has an ability to communicate with his patients that is rare these days with doctors. I will have Dr. Diocee as my chiropractor for life now. Thanks Doc!

I consulted your clinic because I had a shoulder problem. At my first visit in September 2001, Dr. Diocee noticed that my nose was stuffed up and I could hardly breathe. Actually, I had more problems with my nose and breathing than with my shoulder. I had six operations on my nose in a 30 year span. All in vain. The last 5 years were the worst. I couldn’t eat properly or sleep at night because of blocked nostrils. Doctors kept telling me it was a bad case of polyps which reoccur every 3 years. After a few treatments on my shoulder, Dr. Diocee worked on my neck and spine and my nostrils opened up. This happened 6 years ago. I have no more problems breathing and it doesn’t seem to matter what weather conditions are as my nose is always clear. It wasn’t the polyps - Dr. Diocee could tell you what it was. By the way, my shoulder is better now too! I had made the best choice – a chiropractor – Dr. Diocee. He saved my life as I couldn’t carry on with my nose problems. Thank you Dr. Diocee!

I originally came to see Dr. Diocee because I had terrible headaches every day for about a year. After my son was born in October 2006, I brought him because he had acid reflux and his head was always tilted to one side – he looked very uncomfortable. He cried ALL the time. My headaches were getting in the way of everyday life – I couldn’t function at work, etc. Levi’s problems were affecting us because he was always crying – a very painful cry. He had a very difficult time sleeping and spit up constantly. Since beginning care at the clinic I no longer have headaches – I feel 100% better. Levi no longer has any problems from acid reflux from what I can tell and his head no longer flops to one side. He is such a happy and content baby now! I wasn’t able to function very well with headaches and now I have no problems with that. My life has improved the most, though, by Levi getting so much better. He cried all the time – not a hungry or tired cry, but a painful cry. I don’t know where we would be if I hadn’t brought him to see Dr. Diocee. Chiropractic care has changed our lives! It is very miserable to have a headache every day and I was not interested in taking painkillers every day as was suggested to me. Why mask the pain when there is a cure for the problem? With Levi it was even more difficult because a two month old baby cannot tell you what is hurting him. If I had just accepted people’s advice of “it’s just colic” or “he’s a baby and babies cry” he would have gone on in pain and I probably would have gone out of my mind. I now recommend to all my friends that they have their babies checked out. You never know what damage has been done to a baby during birth.

Exhausted and frustrated with having to go through endless and constant daily pain, I needed to know if someone like Dr. Diocee could help me. I had seen 17 medical doctors of all levels within 18 months who hadn’t been able to help me lessen the aches and pains. I had been diagnosed and re-diagnosed with having a stroke, to having lupus to having multiple sclerosis. Dr. Diocee was confident and willing to see what he and the Gonstead technique could do to help me. He examined me, took x-rays and then explained what was happening to my body. He explained what he could do, as well as what the Gonstead technique was. Dr. Diocee had certainly taken on a challenge! Although I see Dr. Diocee a few times a week, and I still go through a lot of pain, it is nothing in comparison to what I was going through prior to coming to see him. I have my good days and I still have my bad, but I tell you it sure feels good now when I can turn the ignition to the car on without having it hurt, hold a cup for the most part and not have the cup fall from my hands, or even just to hold the phone in a conversation for more than five minutes. I am far from being 100% and I know it’s still early in the game, but I believe, as Dr. Diocee does, that I didn’t get like this overnight, and I certainly won’t heal overnight, but if I continue with my visits and his way of healing, my body will heal in time. I have gone off ALL medications that the other medical doctors have prescribed to me for the previous 18 months (with the odd painkiller to help me out), but for the most part I’m holding my own now and I put a lot of faith and trust that Dr. Diocee’s way of healing will be and continue to be my saviour of living a normal, active lifestyle again. I look forward to continuing my visits with Dr. Diocee and healing on a daily basis. You are definitely one of a kind, Dr. Diocee!

I came to see Dr. Diocee for back pain, mostly between the shoulder blade area, and for headaches – they were beginning to give me problems. A good friend strongly recommended Dr. Diocee. These health issues were restricting my movements. I was unable to accomplish simple things like washing windows, walls, vacuuming, etc. Sitting at the computer at work was getting progressively worse. Since coming to the clinic, the improvement to my health has been immense; the use of my arms hasn’t been this good in years. It’s been an unbelievable difference. Just saying my life has improved is an understatement. In eight months, the change has been incredible. I managed to do all my windows and was still able to move my arms the next day, as well as breathe easily. Dr. Diocee’s chiropractic service is amazing. He has an amazing knowledge of how one’s body works. I truly appreciate not being bent like a pretzel and there is no snap-crackle procedure. His new improved procedures are wonderful. I thank God every day for him and his amazing procedures.

This is written in appreciation for the professional care that I have received as a patient of Dr. Diocee during the past several months. In July 2007, I suffered a severe back injury and when I began treatment a spinal x-ray showed there was a fractured vertebrae. This was extremely painful and I was unable to walk around our home without the use of a cane and additional assistance. It was also very difficult to go to Dr. Diocee’s office. A program was set up that included several treatments per week at the start, but which were reduced at regular intervals. I now see him once a week and my physical condition and level of pain has improved a great deal. I have found Dr. Diocee to be very personable and thorough in his treatment. I would be pleased to recommend him to anyone needing chiropractic care.
