Dr. Michael Bennett
Your Crystal River Chiropractor
"I came to Dr. Bennett with chronic lower back pain and not able to work in the yard for not more than 45 minutes, and that is when I pushed myself. During the first office visit (evaluation) we discovered many more things that required attention. I.e. having a Bowel Movement every 2 to three days was not normal, I was on four Blood Pressure Medications and on two Anti-inflammatory medications and in the near past I was on pain medication for three years. After about 12 secessions I started to notice that my Bowel Movements were becoming regular, 1 to 3 times per day, I could stand and work in the yard for up to 4 hours at a time and my psoriasis has completely healed on my hands and greatly improved on my knee and elbow. One day my wife and I were a a local Hardware Store and she asked me if I was in a hurry because I was walking much faster than in the past. I am now on only two of the four Blood Pressure Medications and my blood pressure is well within normal limits. We took a trip to Chicago for my Son-in-law's wedding where we made time to go see the sights, we walked for most of a the day going up and down steep steps and I no problems, my wife would ask me if I was having any problems and I would tell her “no” so we would keep walking. My Quality of Life has greatly improved and I am looking forward to becoming a wellness patient with Dr. Bennett."
"I have been participating in Dr. Bennett's wellness program for the past six years. Prior to this I was in extreme pain in my left hip which shot down my leg to my ankle. It was so painful that I used a cane. I could barely stand up or walk. This was restricting me from enjoying life. I was beginning to feel helpless and frustrated. That's when I decided to seek chiropractic care. Luckily for me I found Suncoast Chiropractic and thanks to Dr. Michael Bennett's diagnosis, he found that my discomfort was caused from the sciatic nerve. I felt better after each time I treated and he recommended I participate in a wellness plan. I have been doing this for the past six years and I am happy to say that I am pain-free and no longer need a cane. I am back to my old self and I plan on continuing this program because I feel great despite turning 81 this October."
"During my 24-year career as a metropolitan police officer in the Midwest, I sustained injuries to my neck, left shoulder, and lower back. After several unsuccessful treatments, medications and physical therapy programs, I underwent surgery in December of 1993 to remove arthritis and bone spurs from my left shoulder joint as well as attempt to make repairs to three tears in my left rotator cuff. An inch of bone was ground from the joint. The segment of the rotator cuff muscle had deteriorated to such an extent that it could just barely be stitched back together. I was left wit limited use of my left arm. Over the years I have consulted with other medical doctors and had been treated by various chiropractors all across the USA during my RV travels.
In May of 2009 I went to Suncoast Chiropractic in Crystal River, Florida. This was unique...unlike any other chiropractic office I had ever seen or experienced. It took time to get me back to "normal" but I felt noticeably better almost every time I left the office. I feel like a new person...better than I have in years and I usually wake up feeling relaxed. I will continue to see Dr. Bennett on a regular "wellness tune-up" schedule. Dr. Bennett is an extremely knowledgeable and gifted chiropractor, and has a tremendous bedside manner. His staff is the greatest. If I had only known how good they were, I would have been there much sooner."
