"I suffer from generalized neck, shoulder, and jaw pain. Part of this is due to my profession where I’m forced to use my arms and hands in front of me for delicate procedures and do not have a large range of motion in my neck and back. This causes a lot of strain leading to pain that seems to shoot up my left (non-dominant) side. I also clench my jaw while concentrating and often at night if I’m stressed. My pain would come and go but at it’s worst, even OTC pain killers barely dulled the radiating headaches and nerve pain. Lydia Houston does an excellent job listening to my unique areas of discomfort. She helps diagnose the nerves and muscles that need extra attention and gives me additional exercises to try at home. Lydia used a technique to reset my TMJ discs that helped alleviate clicking/popping of my jaw. This realignment helped me balance the use my my masticating muscles and now it rarely gets locked up. My pain after several visits has decreased significantly. I feel like I have greater range of motion in my neck and my jaw rarely hurts. I plan to continue this maintenance for as long as possible. I can tell it really helps me in my job and daily life."

I want to thank you so much, , Dr. Eckman,for relieving the pain I had been experiencing for a year. I have seen several medical practitioners. I have had an ultra sound, ct scan, endoscopy and colonoscopy done. They ruled out cancer, but did nothing to relieve the pain. On my first visit to you, you identified the issue. On the second visit the pain was gone!!!! It is so nice to be pain free and to know it was not in my head.
Thank you for being such a caring doctor!

"I came to Ann Griffin with her receiving good references from a friend who had tried others and landed with Ann. I am an old ex-jock who has abused his bod, seen many chiropractic specialists over my 70 years.
Ann so impressed me with her careful targeting and has nearly in just three visits resolved what was a long term issue. I find her to be a great enthusiastic intelligent Dr and a better listener, using all of her skills as needed.to get me out of pain. She is honest and direct."

I was referred to Bigfoot Wellness by a friend. As a contractor and avid outdoorsman I suffer repetitive use issues. Dr. Eckman focused on freeing up stuck muscles and connective tissue, then adjustments to stabilize these areas. She is highly intuitive and very thorough, always finding the cause. I am consistently more stable, and my visits are now seldom. I highly recommend Bigfoot Wellness to anyone who pushes their body like I do.

"I saw Ann and was so impressed that I'll tell anyone I know if they have any pain to go see her. I have been in pain for 3 years from fracturing my back. I went and saw Ann and for the first time in 3 years, I have been pain-free in my back. I went and saw her 2 days ago and still zero pain. It is truly a blessing for me. Thank you so much, Ann."

"I suffered from chronic pain in my left leg for 11 years. I visited over a dozen doctors and specialists and invested thousands of dollars into treatments that didn't work. Within 3 hours of meeting Ann Griffin, she had not only diagnosed the problem but fixed it completely. I went from daily pain just from standing to zero pain even with physical activity. That visit to Bigfoot Wellness brought back my hope for a full and happy life. I would highly recommend a visit by anyone suffering from pain or discomfort."

"I've had back pain on-and-off for several years and I've seen a handful of chiropractors. But Ann has the most unique and effective approach to healing I've ever experienced. Like that one Sunday morning when I panicked because I could not get out of bed I was in so much pain. I texted her office and she literally saw me at 9:00 AM on a Sunday. Who has ever heard of that? Then when I walked I the door she said, Oh - by the time you leave my office you'll be feeling awesome - and that's exactly what happened. Unbelievable. What a gift for Sisters, Oregon."

"After a bad car accident in 2015, I went to a few different massage therapists in the area, but no one could really find what was causing my pain. When I started loosing mobility in my neck I gave it another shot and saw Lydia. After one massage session she was able to identify and release the tension in my neck allowing me to look left for the first time in six months, identified old injuries causing other issues, and make a plan for future recovery. Lydia has given me my mobility back, reduced my pain in my neck and back immensely, and helped me get back into being physically active again. I would highly recommend seeing Lydia for any massage therapy needs, and especially for injury recover and pain."

"I came to Lydia because I have reoccurring flare-ups of old injuries that need a holistic approach to heeling. And what I found was heeling! Through Lydia’s knowledge, techniques, and intuition, I am able to trust her insight and strategies for my body. She understands what may be pain from current issues or inflammation from old issues. She understands how the body shows emotional pain as physical ailments, and how to treat the full spectrum of ailments in the body to support my healing. Thank you Lydia!"
