While we Have Helped 1000's, Hear What the Following Participants Have to Say About Thier Migraine Challenge Experience

"Since I have begun seeing Dr. Amanda Jordan my migraines have diminished slowly and surely. (I am certain she is in as much of a hurry to see them go as I am.) I have now been able to go a couple weeks headache free, and when they do occur they are tolerable -even without medication. (What a change!) Her support and compassion have been incredibly refreshing and sincere. Her approach to chiropractic care is very different from all the others I have experienced. Dr. Amanda is very precise in her adjustments and excellent in her technique. She has an amazing amount of knowledge as to the “why” of what is happening and determining the source of the problem and is able to communicate it all so clearly. I am so grateful for the excellent care and kindness I have received at Family Chiropractic."

"I was suffering from extreme migraines that were greatly affecting my daily life at least twice a week. As the headaches were becoming more severe, so was my pain. I would lose my appetite, had terrible sleeping patterns, and even being labeled as someone with “a bad immune system” as I was always sick. I was still receiving treatments for a blood disorder up until a month before starting as a patient at Family Chiropractic. I was receiving little to no results with “traditional medication” and figured that any other routes were at least going to rule out treatment possibilities. Dr. Amanda started me out with Standard Process Supplements and adjusting three times weekly, decreasing weekly visits over time. Within weeks, my symptoms were done. My headaches had been cut down to only four or five within five months. My whole body and the way it was functioning had improved."

~ Seana Rader

"For years I have suffered from daily headaches that I attributed to holding stress in my shoulders. After being diagnosed with arthritis in my neck, physical therapists told me that I was too young to have these problems in my spine and I felt I would just have to get use to the pain. Before meeting Dr. Amanda, I wasn’t sold on the idea of chiropractic. Her gentle encouragement and promise of relief left me with no excuses. After my first visit, the troublesome vertebrae was set back into place and I was amazed that the headaches, went away. During my visits I learned how a lower back injury many years ago more than likely caused the deterioration in my upper disks and that I didn’t have to accept the consequences. Dr. Amanda is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything in ways that are easy to understand."

~ Mary Limbacher

"Several months ago, I was blessed to be chosen as one of the patients in Dr. Amanda & Dr. Cotey’s Migraine Challenge. I have had migraines for over 30 years and was having 3-4 a week, even though I am taking daily migraine medicine. At my initial evaluation, I learned that I had very little curve in my neck and my spine was tilting to the side. After only a few weeks of care, I went 24 days without a migraine! At my 3 month recheck, I was delighted to learn that my neck is beginning to curve and my spine tilt is improving. And, not just my migraines are being affected… my energy level has increased significantly and my body is functioning at a higher level. The personal attention you get from both doctor’s and the office staff is second to none. I am on my way to a migraine-free life and am blessed that God led me to these wonderful people! "

"Been coming here for about 2 or 3 months for my chronic migraines. I have gone from 3 to 5 per week down to 2 or 3 per month!!! Can't explain how much its positively impacted my life. Grateful for their amazing accommodations!"

~ Larry Bourquin

"Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey are the best. They don’t sugar coat anything. If you want results you need to see them. They have saved my daughters life, helped my son and whenever I have walked into the office with a Migraine, I can feel the pressure releasing before leaving the office. Get your butt to them if you suffer with Headaches or Migraines!"

~ Kelly O'Connor

"I have suffered with many different illnesses throughout my life and no doctor has ever been able to help me or explain why things were happening. Dr. Cotey explained things in a way that I could finally understand and helped to set up a treatment plan that made sense. Now I have been seeing Dr. Amanda for five months and my world has been changed! I am starting to feel healthy for the first time in a very long time."

~ Jenny

"I have suffered with migraines for over 20 years. I would suffer with them for 2 to 14 days a month. They were so debilitating I don’t even know how I made it to work. I would have to have a bucket in the car. There were days were I would have to have all the lights out and stay in my room. After getting adjusted not only did have I not had migraines but I haven’t had any headaches in 3 months! Thank you! You guys are amazing!"

~ Dr. Michelle Cenk

"I first went to see Dr. Amanda at Family Chiropractic when I was 37 weeks pregnant and I was told my baby was breech. She did the Webster's technique and the baby flipped! I was ecstatic!!! We began talking about my general health and I told her I suffered from migraine headaches on a monthly basis. After I delivered my daughter, my migraines increased and my general well being declined. So I started seeing the Dr.'s regularly and took charge of my health. I am happy to say I suffer way less migraines and FEEL amazing. Along with the adjustments, the staff at Family Chiropractic has helped me realize that nutrition and exercise are a vital part of feeling the best I can feel. They are friendly and kind to me and my family."

~ Erin Laprade

"I started seeing Dr. Jordan July 2010. I went to her seeking relief of my headaches and migraines. I had approximately 2 migraines every month. They were very severe and would last for 2 days and were followed by a headache for a day or so. My symptoms were seeing spots, pressure behind my left eye and extreme light and sound sensitivity. Since seeing Dr. Jordan both the frequency and severity have drastically decreased.
In addition to my headaches, I also have received adjustments for my jaw which would frequently pop and cause pain making eating difficult. In the beginning treatment was frequent as required, but Dr. Jordan is constantly striving to find the balance between frequency and required treatment. Dr. Jordan’s primary concern is individual progress and health, and she goes beyond the symptoms to look at the root of the problem to determine the best way to increase my quality of life"

"I recently signed up for the Pittsburgh Migraine challenge with Family Chiropractic in Cranberry. I’ve suffered with migraines for many years but after having a good spell of 5 years they returned with a vengeance after a car accident in 2017. I suffered a concussion and neck/back injury. I was having 9-12 migraines a month and had daily neck/back pain. I tried OTC pain relievers, creams, multiple prescription medications and prescription painkillers, acupuncture, trigger point injections, deep tissue needling, and deep tissue massages.

After my initial evaluation, I had my report of findings and was quite astonished at the information I received. I had my FIRST adjustment yesterday morning and wasn’t expecting any immediate results. However, yesterday was the FIRST day in 6 months that I did not have to use any rescue medications (OTC or Prescription) for migraines, headaches, neck, or back pain. You read that right - the FIRST day in 6 months without any rescue medications. This gives me hope for my future! I’m so glad I found Family Chiropractic."

"They are the best chiropractors for me and my son after a bad accident left us with migraines. We now have no more migraines and feel much better! I have also changed our family lifestyle since going to them. Living much happier and healthier! "

~ Pam and her son

"I have had migraines for as long as I can remember, probably since I was about 8 years old. Just before the throbbing got unbearable I would have to lay down very still in a dark and silent room for hours. Sometimes they were bad enough to make me physically ill. This was really hard as a little girl! All I wanted to do was play outside with my friends. When I was about 20 I started seeing a chiropractor every once in a while. The migraines lessened in frequency but they were still there and headaches were a 2x a week occurrence. About five years later I started seeing Dr. Amanda Jordan. I was really nervous at first, it was a lot of time and money to invest in something that you hope works out. She took xrays of my spine and I had no curve to my neck and my neurological tests weren’t very good. I have been seeing her for three times a week for four months now and at the end of the first month my migraines were gone. At the end of the second month, my headaches were gone! I am no longer leaving work early a few times a month for headaches/not feeling good. The added bonuses are that I am not spending a ton of money on Ibuprofen anymore and my cramps during that time of the month are significantly less painful! Dr. Amanda and Dr. Cotey have done more for my health than I ever thought someone could do and they are doing it without any drugs. In the most recent xray a curve was very visible in my neck already. I am very thankful for the knowledge these doctors have and the compassion they have for their patients. "

"I’ve been going to family chiropractic for about a year now due to chronic migraine.. best decision I’ve made! I no longer take my medications for my migraines and I rarely get the migraines anymore. I feel better overall. Dr. Cotey and Amanda Jordan are great and truly care for my specific needs. Highly recommend!"

~ Jordan

"I originally went into this “Migraine Challenge” not only hopeful, but also slightly skeptical. I have suffered from headaches for 25 years and migraines for almost 10 years. Recently, as my job has focused on working on computers, my migraines have increased in intensity. To help combat the migraines, I have been seeing a typical chiropractor for over 20 years, but for the past 3 years, up to twice a week with bi monthly visits to a massage therapist. While I felt this has helped, along with daily medication, this by no means provided any long term solutions; just a quick temporary relief. I decided to partake in their “Pittsburgh Migraine Challenge”. Needless to say, I was shocked to find out that it was associated with a chiropractor and not a neurologist. Since my very first visit, they make you feel as if you are their only patient, a VIP…family. This is important because it shows how much they care.

Even after the first two visits with Dr. Amanda, I have seen tremendous improvements. I was able to gauge my progress based on one simple factor – concert events, which all happened within a few weeks of each other. Prior to seeing Dr. Amanda, I went to see “Drunk in Public” (a variety of punk bands) and “Dirty Heads” (American reggae band). I am sad to say, due to my back, lights and sounds (which triggered migraines), I was unable to stay for the full concerts; either of them. After seeing Dr. Amanda, I went to see “Flogging Molly and Dropkick Murphys” (both are American Celtic punk bands). During the show was I was able to jump around and actually enjoyed myself. Even though temperatures were in the 90s, I actually made it through the entire concert. My back felt amazing (a little stiff, only cause I am getting to old for these punk type shenanigans) and even the next morning, I have not felt better. The import thing – no migraines.

I have been a patient for roughly a month (give or take) and have never seen better results. Even my massage therapist has commented on the improvement. If you are in pain or looking for an alternative solution, they are 100% worth going too. "
