"I am 92 and disabled. I have received a great deal of help with my pain and problems at Helping Hands. The staff is wonderful too. They even come out to the car and help me with my walker." - Pete Beckett
"Dr. Faas and his massage therapists have been gluing my body back together since 2001. When I moved here, a colleague recommended him. I have experienced many chiropractic services in the past, and Helping Hands Chiropractic Center is THE BEST!" - Paula Patterson
"I came today with difficulty breathing from allergies and asthma and left breathing freely. Another wonderful chiropractic experience at Helping Hands!" - Shelby
"Helping Hands is amazing. The staff are always courteous and helpful. I have been coming here for over five years and have only positive experiences. The chiropractors and massage therapists are very professional and excellent."- Bill Gallagher
"I started using chiropractic therapy after my first car accident. The difference it made in my life was truly life changing. Unfortunately, I have had too many experiences with auto accidents- each time I was given back my range of motion and flexibility which were taken from me by following their advice and changing my diet to include nutritional building blocks. I would recommend that everyone take advantage of the relief and release that a chiropractic session can give to the body, the spirit and the emotions. I thank deeply the staff at Helping Hands. They are wonderful at what they do."- Nikki Nicholson
"I came into Helping Hands not able to lift my head. Dr. Myhree worked on my neck and I left walking straight and with my head up! I had been in pain so severe I could not do anything for five days. What wonderful relief Dr. Myhree gave me. I will never forget the concern and wonderful treatment from Dr. Myhree and staff. We were all in tears of joy when I stood and lifted my head and turned it to the side. Wonderful and compassionate people here at Helping Hands Chiropractic."- Karen Oxford
"My first encounter with Dr. Faas was my first experience with a chiropractor. I hurt my back moving 100lb concrete pilings. I was unable to stand up straight and barely able to walk. All the medical doctors I called could not see me for days. My father-in-law suggested I see a chiropractor, so out of desperation I called Dr. Faas for an appointment. To my surprise, I was able to see him that day. After an evaluation and x-rays, he discovered that I had an inflamed disc causing my back to look like the letter "s." Dr. Faas said he could help me, but I had to follow his instructions completely. He decreased the pain each time I had a treatment. After two weeks of therapy and wearing a brace, I was walking normal and able to go back to work a week later. Because of Dr. Faas I did not have surgery. I see him on a regular basis to keep everything in line. I recommend him to friends and associates all the time."- LWB
"I came to see Dr. Faas following a car accident based on a friend's recommendation. Prior to receiving chiropractic care, I was not able to move my head from side to side and had numerous headaches as well as back pain. Helping Hands provided me with top notch chiropractic care and massage therapy which allowed me to return to a pain and headache free life. Since that first visit, I have had other instances of muscle and joint pain for which I sought relief. Dr. Faas and the staff at Helping Hands from the front office to the massage therapists are always ready with a smile to assist with any issues that I have whether it be chiropractic, nutritional or other needs. I would recommend this office to anyone with similar needs above other area chiropractors. I have actually given this recommendation to a friend recently and told them this was the office with "magic hands" since they seem to cure my woes quicker than other chiropractic offices I have been to."- Nelda Loper
"The use of chiropractic manipulation for health maintenance is not a new concept to me. As a child I routinely received adjustments. In fact, chiropractic health care was such an integral part of our family that my brother choose to become a chiropractor. He has been in practice for 25 years and until I moved to Gainesville eight years ago, was my chiropractor."
"Every chiropractor has a little different methodology, depending upon where they were schooled. Some have a very light touch, others a more heavy hand. As a patient, you must find the technique that best suits your body and to which your body responds. What I find so unique about Helping Hands is that Dr. Faas employs many fine practitioners, each with their own unique style and talents. So there are many different chiropractic techniques assembled under the same roof. If one technique does not work for you, then you can try another approach without the hassle of transferring to another clinic."
"Helping Hands Chiropractic is unique in its approach to healthcare, because in addition to chiropractic, the clinic offers massage and exercise therapy, as well. Many times my body requires massage therapy before manipulation. It is critical to my care that I have a massage therapist that understands how to release tension and stress from my body so that I benefit from my adjustment. Additionally, there are times when exercise and strength training will help your body "hold" the adjustment. I am so fortunate to have the team of healthcare practitioners at Helping Hands Chiropractic working for me."- Donna Vernon
"Both my husband and I have been seeing Dr. McChesney and Mary for about six months and we are very happy with both of them. Dr. McChesney cares. She listens and knows a variety of techniques to "straighten out" her patients. Mary's knowledge and skill level of orthobionomy make her sessions far more useful and healing than an average massage therapist. Since my sister is a chiropractor and I have been to many, I can confidently say that I feel Dr. McChesney is excellent!"- Chris
