Chiropractic began in 1895 when Dr. Daniel David Palmer of Iowa performed the 1st chiropractic adjustment on a deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard who a few days later regained his hearing.
Chiropractic care has helped many people since then with various health problems.
Here are a few of the stories our patients are saying about Desmarais Chiropractic:
From injuries in my younger days, I had lots of problems with my back that involved flare-ups where I couldn't sit, stand or move without shooting pains that incapacitated me. Usually, it took almost nothing to activate it. So much so that my husband started calling me "glass back". One day while on vacation in Colorado, I had such pain, I knew I needed help or I wasn't going to be able to get home. My husband took me to the Emergency room and with muscle relaxers and pain pills, I was able to manage just enough to get home.
The next time my back went out, I was desperate and could hardly walk. A friend suggested I try her chiropractor who is Dr. Ron Desmarais. I made an appointment and with his treatments, rest and exercises, I am doing very well.
This past year my husband and I went to Utah. We hiked up to Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. It is a very steep climb. There were people that gave up and turned back and others that were sitting at the edge of the trail trying to decide whether to continue or give up. I'm happy to say that I didn't give up and made it to the top and I'm so glad I did. The Arch is beautiful and the area is breathtaking. It's an experience I will never forget. There was a time when I thought I would never be able to do anything like that again...but I did and I still do. No more "glass back" for me.
Thank you Dr. Ron, I never could have done it without your help.

I suffered with severe migraines for over 5 years. When my headaches were the worst, I would be forced to lay in bed all day. I would get headaches at least four times a week. I had been to two other chiropractors and a massage therapist but only got temporary relief. Now, thanks to Dr. Ron, my headaches have decreased by 90%. I am overall more active and happier because I am not in constant pain. The office staff is very friendly.

When I first came to Desmarais Chiropractic, I was in severe pain. I was referred by another chiropractor. Prior to seeing Dr. Ron, I was on bed rest and pain medication. I suffered for five years. After just one visit with Dr. Ron, I noticed a difference. I honestly didn't think that my pain would decrease that much. Desmarais Chiropractic office has an caring environment. I also liked the easy access. My friends notice that I am able to do more and that I am more cheerful.
