Initial Complaints: migraines, shoulder pain and arm pain
Highly recommend. I had ongoing unbearable migraines for nearly a year. Had been to the hospital and multiple family doctors and spent thousands of dollars but never a cure except prescription pain medicine. After visiting Dr. Josh Oberhelman and having ONE adjustment my migraines immediately vanished! No medicine needed! Several years ago I had trauma to my left arm after falling down stairs and was not able to use it fully nor sleep on my left side for nearly three years. When explaining to Dr. Oberhelman what had happened and the pain, he gave me another excellent adjustment and once again, there is no more pain! I can fully utilize my left arm as well as sleep on it! I continue to see Dr. Oberhelman as often as possible for adjustments to maintain the proper structure and keep healthy. As they are compassionate and very knowledgeable, I am 110% supportive of Optimal Health Chiropractic Clinic.

Initial Complaints: posture, sleeping problems, allergies, and ear pain
Dr. Josh and Dr. Cole have been a tremendous help to me this past year improving my health in many ways. I sleep better now, no longer have allergies and my posture has improved drastically. I also used to experience "airplane ear" when I flew on airplanes, which is extreme pain in the ear caused from the sudden change in cabin pressure. Since they've treated me, I no longer experience that pain when flying! They are extremely professional and knowledgeable in all areas of chiropractic care. I highly recommend them to anyone!

Initial Complaints: carpal tunnel, headaches, sleep problems
I have been in active treatment with Dr. Cole and Dr. Josh since spring break 2014. I was having severe carpal tunnel pain and loss of strength in my hands and surgery had been recommended. I'm a pianist so the thought of surgery scared me. A dear friend of mine told me about them and showed me her progress pictures and I'd noticed a great reduction in her pain and brightness in her face so I made an appointment. My hands cause me zero pain now and my frequent headaches are now very rare. Through nutritional and endocrine support my sleep is improving and my overall stability is much improved. These doctors truly care about you as a whole person and want you to live your best and healthiest life. I would and have recommended them to everyone!

Initial Complaints: back pain, shoulder pain, neck pain
I am so blessed to have found Dr. Josh and Dr. Cole. The chronic back, shoulder, and neck pain I had for years inhibited my normal activities. With each visit I continue to improve and I have now more mobility and energy than I did even when I was a teenager. A very active lifestyle impacts my mental attitude and my health; these doctors have made this possible. Thank you so very much!
-Meg L. Kansas City, KS
Initial Complaints: general pain and quality of life
I highly recommend Dr. Josh and Dr. Cole for their wisdom, skills, and method of chiropractic care. My accelerated treatment plan has given me the courage to trust there will be an end to the pain caused by underlying scar tissue and misalignments. I am freer to lift groceries, garden, and do more than I have in years. Both are also well versed in nutrition. They can also spot ill-fitting shoes from across the room. At Optimal Health Chiropractic, you can expect total care treatment for healing, maintenance, and prevention of the health issues that concern you. My special thanks to Dr. Josh for my primary care and personal concern for my well being.

Initial Complaints: severe pain and swelling
I was in severe pain and had a swollen spot in the middle of my back. Due to the pain, I missed days of work off and on. I also had some days that the pain was so severe that I couldn’t walk and had been bed ridden. I went to several surgeons, doctors, pain clinics. I had spinal shots, steroid injections, acupuncture, and even was treated by two different chiropractors with very little success. So I was skeptical of anything or people that said they could help me. Dr. Josh did a totally different procedure than I ever had before. It has taken awhile and some days I still have an issue but the problems are nothing like I had before and the spot in my back is gone. If someone told me about this a long time ago, I would have had a lot less pain, cost, along with wasted life. I would tell anyone if you are skeptical, or afraid, or in a lot of pain, come to Optimal Health Chiropractic Clinic and they will fix you up. Do yourself a favor and do it now!

Initial Complaints: chronic headaches, dizziness, and lower back pain
My name is Cheryl and I have suffered from chronic headaches and dizziness for years as well as lower back pain. I have been to many doctors as well as a chiropractor and other than cutting me open or offering drastic measures, I felt hopeless. I heard about Vernon Place and Dr. Josh and that he could help me. I have to admit I was very skeptical and the technique was very different than I had heard of but I went. It has been about 5 months and my headaches are virtually gone, I have no more dizziness, and my back feels so much better. Dr. Josh is wonderful and listens to what you say about your body. I highly recommend Optimal Health Chiropractic.

Initial Complaints: unrelenting hip pain, difficulty sleeping, and allergies
After I had my fourth child, I began to experience structural issues that stemmed from my hips. I’ve always enjoyed physical activity, but I had to quit because I gradually got worse and worse. Two to three years later, and three chiropractors behind me, I was in so much pain that I couldn’t even sleep through the night. My family couldn’t go on road trips because I couldn’t handle sitting that long, it hurt so intensely. At the same time, I was experiencing horrible seasonal allergies. If I even opened the house door, my eyes and nose would itch and drain extremely bad. I couldn’t do anything outside. I couldn’t watch my son play baseball.
I have now been with Optimal Health Chiropractic for a year and a half, and my life has improved dramatically. I have been back to jazzercise for a year now. We are taking road trips again, no problems! I have even started running, and I just finished my first ever 10-mile run! I’ve NEVER been able to do that! And it’s allergy season to top it off. I have been following their supplement regimen, and that has drastically improved my allergies. I am better than ever! I feel great! I am so grateful to OHC for adjusting me back to a (better-than) normal life.

Initial Complaints: back pain, headaches
Dr. Josh and Dr. Cole are fantastic. Their unique approach is so much better that traditional chiropractic care. I had been dealing with issues from a couple of old injuries. Over the years I found some relief from chiropractors, but it was always temporary. The unique approach they take has me feeling more stable and flexible than I was in high school (a long time ago)! It takes many visits to get there, and there was some discomfort as I went through some "unwinding," but it's absolutely worth it.
One other note; they don't accept insurance, but their pricing is reasonable, so I barely pay more than I would with insurance at another chiropractor.
-Justin H. DeSoto, KS
Initial Complaints: migraines, neck pain, back pain, hip pain
I've seen a handful of chiropractors who promised to fix my spine, but it was really masking symptoms instead. Dr. Cole and Dr. Josh have worked to find the root cause and I'm feeling much better. They are friendly, easy to get an appointment with, and highly knowledgeable.
-Elizabeth B. Olathe, KS
Initial Complaints: low back pain, nerve pain, shoulder pain
I knew this was going to be a different chiropractic experience the moment I walked into their doors. Drs Josh and Cole are extremely attentive, kind, professional, and knowledgeable. This is not a "crack your back in 15 minutes" kind of practice, where the chiropractor superficially fixes you and then expects to see you back each week for the rest of your life. The Drs here want to help get to the root of the issue, see you regularly at first, and then gradually get you to a place of maintenance and vitality. I leave from my appointments feeling like I have been heard and cared for and best of all, my posture is better and my low back pain was GONE! It was amazing.
-Jenessa A. Springfield, MO
Initial Complaints: rib pain, back pain, headaches, leg pain
I started at Optimal Health Chiropractic in January 2016 with headaches, back, leg pain, and rib cage pain. At present this has all mostly vanished! There is no violent thrusting. All adjustments are done with natural movement using your own weight to do it. Also the knowledge of available HIGH quality supplements to aid in your health. I really appreciate these doctors and trust what they have to say and how they approach the field of chiropractic.
Thanks Dr. Josh and Dr. Cole

Initial Complaints: neck pain, back pain, foot pain
After a couple negative experiences with chiropractors, I was skeptical of visiting another one, but I had just been in a car accident and was having neck and back pain. I came to OHC because my parents had gone to Honduras with Dr. Josh and raved about how caring and knowledgeable he had been with the people there. I am so grateful to Dr. Josh for all he has done for me. 5 months later, I am free of not only neck and back pain, but also foot pain that kept me from doing activities that I loved. Dr. Josh and Dr. Cole are both kind, and caring people. They use a very common sense approach to treatment and will work within your budget.
-Marie R. Lenexa, KS
Initial Complaints: migraines, shoulder pain, knee pain, seasonal allergies
My body has never felt better. Years of traditional Chiro care, massage, yoga, and medication helped manage my chronic pain but never fixed it. I came to Optimal Health for a nasal adjustment and stayed to get my whole body fixed (turns out it all works together). They’ve CURED my migraines, shoulder pain, knee pain, and I finally kicked seasonal allergies too. My friends have been amazed to see my crooked fingers straighten out, my face reverse-age. I have shoulder definition now, and I’m finally not a klutz- I’m graceful and have physical coordination and power, like I could be athletic if I wanted to. My kids went through treatment also and now stand taller, run and climb with more coordination and strength, and no more allergies for them, too.
Lifestyle changes (shoes, sitting, and sleeping recommendations) have been the toughest part of treatment but once you figure it out and feel what a difference it makes, it’s so worth it.
Very affordable rates, especially considering you get to quit the meds, treatments, and the costly other stuff you’d been doing.
The ABC chiropractic method is inside out and backward from traditional Chiro but it makes sense (restoring spinal health which allows the rest of the body to align, where traditional Chiro treats one part of the body or just the symptoms instead of the root cause). The missing logic gaps in conventional care are accounted for in ABC (for example, there is a correct height for your pillow! I can’t tell you how many years I’ve been looking for someone to help me find a pillow that doesn’t hurt my neck).
Dr Cole and Dr Josh are so knowledgeable and friendly and easy to work with. I cannot say enough good things about my experience.

Initial Complaints: sciatica, lower back pain, hip pain, feet pain, incontinence
Prior to seeking care with Dr. Josh I was crippled with chronic sciatic, lower back, and hip pain. In the morning I was barely able to walk and everything from my feet up through my lower back was so painful I almost crumbled with each excruciating step. Having 4 kids 6 and under with my youngest being a newborn was almost impossible to get through every day. On top of that I was having an embarrassing battle with incontinence and having several accidents a week. I felt broken and way older than I ought to!
Since starting my care using ABC I have my legs back!!! No more excruciating pain in my hips and lower back, sciatic pain completely gone and I can feel my body getting back to a healthier state with each new adjustment. I am standing straighter, my face is less puffy, I can think clearer and handle mommy frustration much better as well. I have also not had a problem with incontinence since my first adjustment either! I have had better results with this than any chiropractic care I previously received using other techniques. ABC is healing in small adjustments that are giving me my life back!!!

Initial Complaints: neck pain, back pain, brain fog
I am 72 years and had a stiff neck and sore lower back for 20 plus years. I walked like a duck since I was 25. I had been going to a chiropractor for 40 years. However, two years ago at my last chiropractor visit, the doctor adjusted my neck and made it worse and I knew I could not go to him anymore. He did not know what to do to fix me. I had to find someone else. That's when I found out about the ABC Chiropractic Process. I decided what did I have to lose to try it and test it. When I witnessed the doctor treating the patients with this process, I was fascinated by it. What this ABC Chiropractor did was nothing I have seen done before to me or anyone in my family. So I continued the process to see what would happen to me.
Here are some of the results. All of neck, sinus, hearing issues are gone. I did not know I could breath air like I can now. I sleep well. Both of my hips had been twisted and one was also tilted. I am walking like a normal person now. Spine tension has been reduced significantly. My lower back pain is gone and I can stand for long periods of time versus about 30 seconds. I did yard work over the weekend for over an hour and never sat down. My blood pressure has gone down. My head is clear and the fog is gone. My vision has improved. I am standing much straighter and taller. Various "Old Age" pain and soreness has been improved or completely gone. I am looking ahead and not looking down at the ground like I have for over 60 years. I am much happier, nicer, and content. I smile all the time. I have a glow of confidence on me. I know that I am much better and even better days are ahead. I want to live.
I talk about this process to people who have pain and do not have hope. People who go for treatment have seen miracles in their bodies. When I am waiting for the doctor, I observe other patients. Those who have been going for a while have the same smiles and glow on their faces just like me. Many of these people are my friends and to see their improvement and relief from pain is wonderful. Everyone needs to know about this process.
