Positive word of mouth is why I consulted with this clinic for my situation. I was severely limited in performing daily tasks and unable to walk more than a few feet without severe pain. I was unable to cook meals, do housework, etc., due to severe pain in my neck and entire back. Since beginning care at the clinic, I am now able to assist with housework and make meals. I can walk greater distances and stand for longer periods of time. I have much less pain. On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being worst pain) my pain was 10+ when I began treatment. Now, my pain averages 3 - 4 most days. I have been able to decrease the amount of medication I was on with eventual discontinuation and have decreased the amount of pain medication taken daily. Chiropractic care has increased my quality of life more than any medication has in over 10 years. I went to two other chiropractic doctors prior to seeing Dr. Diocee with NO results after attending regular sessions for over a year. I have experienced more relief with Dr. Diocee’s treatment and care than any previous treatment regime. The Footmaxx orthotics provided me with INSTANT, unbelievable additional pain relief. My two previous chiropractors looked at my feet and told me I did not need orthotics. Dr. Diocee assessed my need for orthotics with the computerized Footmaxx system. I cannot believe the tremendous improvement I have experienced in my walking, my posture and my level of pain. I initially chose the Lockport Family Chiropractic Centre because it was very close to home, I was very dissatisfied with prior chiropractic treatment and I received very positive referrals from acquaintances. Now I stay and highly recommend this clinic and Dr. Diocee because the assessment process is very thorough, individualized and includes the use of x-rays to guide treatment. Dr. Diocee addresses my needs and develops a plan of care looking at me as a person, not just a disease or condition. He listens intently to all concerns and addresses all of my questions thoroughly. I like that the plan of care continues beyond initial treatment – into wellness maintenance -- and is based upon my lifestyle. The care is very compassionate, and individualized with excellent results. I have never felt pain during any one of my treatments, each adjustment is very gentle. With my prior experience with chiropractic treatments in other clinics, I would come home in such pain, I could literally not touch my neck or back where it had been adjusted – this has NEVER happened here. The clinic atmosphere is always pleasant, friendly and professional.
I was involved in a car accident in March 2011. After having seen another chiropractor I was still in pain ten months later. My mother suggested this clinic as there was the use of x-rays and other diagnostic tools. At the time I had been enduring fairly constant pain to the point of it affecting my sleep and general life. I was also no longer moving much (extra walking, regular exercise) due to pain and had gained unwanted weight. Immediately following the first treatment, I noticed a great reduction in pain and much increased mobility. I was soon able to re-establish an exercise routine and my sleep and daily life were returning to normal. I no longer feel like everything is an effort. I have been able to move and enjoy simple things again in a way I thought would be impossible due to pain. I cannot overstate the improvement in my quality of life since having these treatments, and I can feel the difference in all aspects of my health because of the treatments.

As a result of a fall on my back, I experienced continuous headaches, persistent mid and lower back pain and fatigue. Back pain surfaced while holding church hymnbooks, pushing grocery carts, unloading grocery bags, etc. I was able to do only light housework - no vacuuming and yard work was on hold for over two months. At times, social engagements were cancelled due to back pain and headaches. Since beginning care at this clinic, I have had no headaches for three months. In this time frame my physical strength vastly improved, enabling me to resume my regular work and social functions. I am now experiencing little pain and improved strength. I enjoy a better home and social life and my confidence has been restored. It is important for me to be free of headaches and have the physical endurance to take care of my young grandson during the summer holidays and attend to household and yard chores. Regular adjustments have improved my life functions.

I needed to get relief of pain in my back during my third trimester of pregnancy and no other medical treatments seemed to be working. I could not walk or sleep without interruption. Being tired and uncomfortable makes one irritable and dependent on others for help. My very first appointment took my pain level down to a “1” when it was at a “9” on a scale of 1 – 10! Continuous treatment assured the pain did not come back. I get a good night of sleep and in turn have more energy throughout the day. It is important for me to be able to walk because most days that is the only exercise I can fit in. Chiropractic is important to me because sometimes one can do everything they can to be mentally and physically healthy, but still have issues; it is nice to know there is a doctor nearby to help.

I was in a car accident and I started to get a lot of headaches. My headaches would stop me from doing my regular activities, like going to school and playing. Since beginning care at this clinic, my headaches became less frequent and now I don’t get them at all. I can be more active and not worry about getting a headache. I can have fun like a normal kid. Chiropractic is important to me because it has made me feel better and able to be a normal active kid.

I had back surgery in 2012. In 2013 I still had back pain in my lower back. A friend told me about this clinic. The pain in my back was terrible; getting out of bed in the mornings and getting dressed was difficult and painful. Since beginning care at the clinic, the improvements are amazing. I feel better getting out of bed and it is much easier to get dressed. I have only been coming to the clinic for a month and the improvements are amazing. I am happier and I feel better all around. I have not felt this good in years and look forward to getting even better. Chiropractic keeps me mobile. The pain in my lower back was so bad, getting out of bed or a chair was terrible. Chiropractic treatment has allowed me to keep working and stay mobile.

I consulted with the clinic because the pain in my lower back and neck were unbearable. Painkillers no longer worked. I had been to other chiropractors, physiotherapy and had 12 needles in my spine by a back surgeon in Winnipeg, but nothing made any difference. I could not stand more than a few minutes, or walk more than 3 – 5 minutes without having to sit down. It was hard to sleep because sitting was my only relief. After three weeks of treatments, my sciatic nerve no longer pinches, I can walk with my back no longer hunched forward, and do my ranch work and driving as long as I’m careful. My back pain and discomfort levels have decreased by 60% and are slowly improving every week. Chiropractic has become very important after four years of unbearable pain with no results from any other health care specialist. This type of adjustment is more successful and much less painful and gave me great results.

Over the past 10 years I have seen doctor after doctor, specialist after specialist, chiropractor after chiropractor, with no results. My sister had been seeing Dr. Diocee with good results, so I figured why not one more. What have I got to lose after 10 years of seeing everyone in Winnipeg and surrounding area? I was in so much pain, I was afraid I would end up in a wheelchair within five years. I was sleeping for 15 minutes a night, then with two sleeping pills would sleep for an hour, be up for a couple of hours, then sleep for an hour again. This went on night after night. I had been to the Sleep Clinic and was told that I did not have sleep apnea, but severe insomnia. The pain between my shoulder blades was so severe that my husband could not touch my back. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I had such bad headaches that I had to spend days in darkness, to control the nausea. I was diagnosed with migraines. I have also been diagnosed with Crohn’s and one of the side effects is arthritis. The arthritis is in my neck, lower back, and hands and feet. Severe pain in the lower back meant getting out of bed took at least 10 minutes every morning. I went for my first treatment on November 4, 2013. I had heard such amazing things about Dr. Diocee from my sister, I felt I had to see if he was really that good. That night, I took only one sleeping pill and went to bed as usual. I fell asleep and woke up seven hours later (I slept for seven hours straight)! I woke up and leaped out of bed, with no lower back pain! I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I did not know how much pain I was in until he took most of it away. I can SLEEP. And now I know what it’s like to sleep and actually feel rested. My migraines are gone (WOW!), my fibromyalgia is gone (Amazing!). I still have some lower back pain, but I am still in treatment and have only been seeing the doctor for one month. I still take a sleeping pill but am working at weaning myself off that. I feel like a whole new person. I have been given rest, relief from migraines, fibromyalgia and lower back pain. This doctor actually cares about the pain you are in. He listens to you and is interested in how you are feeling. Dr. Diocee has given me a new lease on life. He has been blessed with a gift to help people, and that he does. God bless this man.

I would get up in the morning with headaches and a stiff neck. It took awhile to function properly. I was taking a lot of Tylenol for the pain. I went to Lockport Family Chiropractic because family members were already attending this clinic with positive results. After my first treatment, the headaches have disappeared and movement is much better. I feel like getting up in the morning now with the pain gone. It is much easier working with no pain. Chiropractic is important to me because it allows me to function daily without taking medication for pain. With a few treatments, life has improved.

I was in terrible lower body pain and intense spasms. I was taking 4 – 6 Aleve and 3 Advil per day. I had been in physiotherapy for two months. A customer referred me to Lockport Family Chiropractic Clinic. I was having great difficulty walking and sleeping. I could no longer serve customers. I had difficulty sitting, then standing. The pain was very intense. I had to use a cane and crawl up the stairs on my hands and knees, using the furniture and walls for support. In 2 and a half weeks of treatment, I’ve gotten rid of the cane, I no longer crawl up the stairs and don’t use the furniture for support. I was taking many painkillers - now I take maybe one Advil every 2-3 days. I’m not as moody and feel brighter. I’m walking under my own power and sleeping 100% better. Without these treatments, I believe that I was headed for a wheelchair. I was going to the bathroom too many times per day. I also felt that I was starting to lose complete bowel and bladder control. This has returned to normal. My overall physical health is returning to what the “golden years” should be - rather than the “rusty years”. I have recommended this clinic to my wife, my daughter and my hunting partner.
