Lauren S.'s 5 star Yelp review

I'm a nurse, and have had chronic migraines since I was 12 year old and occipital neuralgia for the past 4 years. My migraines would dictate my life and control what I could and could not do. Some days I would be running at 50% being able to go to work but not do my best. Others I was running on fumes and not able to do anything but stay in bed, in a dark room, with ice. When my occipital neuralgia was flared with a migraine, it felt like an icepick was being stabbed into the side of my head repeatedly. Graphic, I know, but it is the horrible truth. My migraines were affecting my job, my graduate school classes, and my social life. I had more bad days than good ones.

I've exhausted all the different pharmacological (medication) treatments in helping and preventing migraines with little luck. I've tried a boat load of different devices, nerve stimulators, essential oils, different pillows, you name it, I tried it if it promised headache and migraine relief. I was referred by my Neurologist to see Dr Kleinfelter, who she had heard of through another patient, and she said to give it a shot.

As a nurse I was VERY skeptical of NUCCA treatment. I had the attitude of, "How is making sure my spine is aligned going to cure something I've had for 19 years of my life?" I gave it a shot because nothing else seemed to work, worse case scenario, I could at least say I gave it a shot.

My consultation showed that I was misaligned, the X-rays confirmed it. A week later I received my first alignment. After my alignment, I felt fine, didn't notice a difference. Left the office feeling like nothing changed and that I probably wasted money. That same night, I had the worst migraine I had in a LONG time (and that's saying something). Everything I did made my head feel like it was going to explode. After a few days of having a horrible migraine, I woke up and felt well rested, and energized. I have not woke up feeling well rested in years! I always felt tired no matter how much or how little I slept.

Fast forward three months, and here we are. My migraines have dramatically decreased, my occipital neuralgia is almost nonexistent. NUCCA has changed my life. I know when I'm out of alignment now, things just feel off, and if I do not correct it, headaches start occurring more and my nerve pain ramps up. I have a quality of life back. I'm better rested, in less pain, and only using Botox and Ajovy to control my migraines. A big change considering I used to take up to 8 different medications a day to try and keep them under control, with little relief being provided.

I went from a skeptical nonbeliever to someone who would recommend this to anyone that is experiencing pain, chronic fatigue, and just a sense of feeling off. The worse that can happen is you can go in for a consultation to find out you're not exhibiting symptoms of a upper cervical misalignment. On the other hand, you could be told that you are, get helped, and change your health and overall wellbeing!

Thank you to Dr Kleinfelter, Dr Leigh, and Dr Gill. These three wonderful doctors and Christine have made things so much better for me, and I wish I had known about NUCCA treatment earlier!

Dr. Kleinfelter and Dr. Grover are fantastic! I was always scared of chiropractic because I've had traumatic injuries in the past, and was told I would never gain strength back in my legs, but continually get worse. I have gained back strength previous dr's never thought possible, and all with such a GENTLE adjustment!

I have been seeing Dr. Kleinfelter for over a year and I have to say that it was the best decision I have ever made. I had a shoulder injury, a labral tear that was diagnosed by MRI, and I was told that surgery was my only option to help the pain. Today my shoulder is feeling great and I did not have to have surgery. I am working out again with no pain or problems at all.

Joy S.'s 5 star Yelp review

So gentle, I love it! 1st Place does an upper cervical technique called NUCCA, meaning there's no twisting, cracking, or popping. I've had enough traumatic injuries, & have osteoporosis, so I don't want someone jerking my spine around. This is nothing like that! The adjustment is extremely precise, down to a percentage of a degree, and holds longer. My left leg is usually 2 inches shorter than my right because of a deteriorating hip joint,and I wear lifts in my shoe to make up the difference. When I get adjusted, getting the nerves working allows my muscles to relax enough to drop my leg 3/4 of an inch! My blood pressure also evened out, my sinuses got better, my sinus migraines went away, and my facial acne cleared. I lost weight without trying because the nerves working better got my digestive system working better. Dr. Kleinfelter seriously changed my life for the better! I'll be her patient forever :)

Everyone is friendly and "on the same page." Our daughter suffers from debilitating New Daily Persistent Headache and after months of playing with meds, we finally tried 1st Place Chiropractic.

Love the results I have benefitted from seeing 1st place chiropractic. I have seen a traditional chiro for many years. Always had great relief from them as stated in other reviews from me, however I always still felt I had to crack my neck. With NUCCA whih is what 1st place chiropractic I never feel the need to adjust my neck. So glad I was referred here. Even my 3 year old daughter sees Drs. At 1st place and she loves it we have not battled many illnesses since seeing them. Sweet office especially Debbie! Love both docs very kid friendly has toys to play.

I truly believe that almost everyone needs NUCCA and the benefit of a healthy spine. Eventually you are adjusted out of the practice only to return for an occasional check or following an injury.

In 2013 I was adjusted by Dr. Kleinfelter and I have held my adjustment!! None of my issues have come back and I just keep feeling better and better. What has worked for me is I eat whole 'real' food. Just what my body needs to stay healthy. And I have a great attitude about it, mentally I am prepared to stay adjusted my entire life.

Katherine W.'s 5 star Google review

Everyone in the office is very professional and caring. The upper cervical adjustment is extremely gentle and feels like a tickle behind your ear. This is because NUCCA does not use direct force to correct malalignment but instead uses a wave form of energy that is so gentle that my 3 year thinks it's silly. I first tried taking him when he was 2 years old to help his persistent torticollis, but he was very anxious and began crying hysterically. Dr. K. suggested we wait until he's ready. For the next year he accompanied me to my visits and Dr. K. spent a few minutes each visit interacting with him to build up trust. Once he trusted her, the x-Rays were a breeze and the adjustment became a fun game. We started to see some improvements in his head position after just 3 visits. He had gone through PT but we just couldn't correct the last 10degrees of his tilt. Most people couldn't notice his head tilt, but as his mother and a pediatric PT, it was very obvious to me and I knew the implications that an uncorrected tilt would have on his visual and motor development. I'm happy to say that his head is now tilted a mere 2degrees! Thank you Dr. Kleinfelter. As for my own health, I do believe that NUCCA was a critical part of my recovery from chronic digestive problems, osteopenia and occasional low back and shoulder pain. One year before starting NUCCA, my bone scans showed that I was reversing my osteopenia through a paleo diet alone so I can't say NUCCA helped me there, but it definitely helped to improve my energy, brain fog, and low back and shoulder problems. I'm currently going once every 6-8 weeks and feel great. I believe correct spinal alignment is a critical part of any well-rounded treatment program, but never underestimate the power of a healthy diet. Food is medicine! We noticed that I would fall out of alignment whenever I experienced a severe food reaction, likely because of the widespread inflammation it caused. The malalignmemt would often lead to back and shoulder pain. It was eye-opening to see how everything is connected.

I was referred to Dr. Orsini when I made my first appointment. He has a great professional manner that made me comfortable divulging my ailments [as I've developed a lot of them recently that I thought was due to stress].

Dr. Orsini is not just a doctor that is there to just fix you up. He has extensive knowledge with treatment options and supplemental tips for patients to keep in alignment. I believe that he is genuinely interested in helping me and my body be the best it can possibly be. He was quick to come up with a solution, take X-rays, and get me in alignment and stay there. I've come back regularly to make sure I'm holding and he has been more than helpful in answering all of my questions that come up.

In short, Dr. Orsini has wowed me with his knowledge and enthusiasm with alternative health and chiropractic. My pain, dizziness, and sleeping problems have improved ten fold since coming here. I've never met Dr. K, but I'm super impressed with the young talent she hired here. I'll keep coming back and referring people for sure!

At 54 years of age I have struggled with low back issues since high school. I was always told that it was because I had one leg significantly shorter than the other - so much so that my mother always had to hem my pants legs to different lengths and doctors made me wear a lift in one shoe. I had been to chiropractors continuously with no lasting results. Every month I would have to go get an adjustment. Then a friend told me about NUCCA chiropractic treatment. It sounded hokey to me but because I was desperate for lasting relief I decided to go. 1st Place Chiropractic impressed me with a very thorough intake assessment including complete X-Rays. Dr. Kleinfelt explained NUCCA treatment process and that it would take time to reverse the years my muscles and skeletal system had been compensating for the miss-alignment in my neck. I questioned how the top vertebrae could cause so much pain in the low back area, she said I would understand after my first adjustment. She first measured the length of my legs and found that one was 3/4" shorter than the other. That first adjustment really surprised me in two ways: 1- there was no popping, cracking, pushing or twisting of anything. In fact the touch was so light that I doubted the Dr. had done anything at all. 2- when she measured my legs after the adjustment they were very close to exactly the same length! So though I was still skeptical at that point I had to admit that something had happened that had never happened before in my life. I decided to stick with the long process of healing with regular check ups and adjustments. It took almost 6 months before I began to hold my adjustment for more than a couple weeks. Then progress began rapidly, better yet the low back pain and shooting pain down my leg began to disappeared. Now after going to 1st Place Chiropractic for 6 years I have little to no low back pain and only need an adjustment about twice a year, usually after a fall or some other unusuall stress due to work. I no-longer have to wear special shoes or have my pant legs hemmed differently. NUCCA Chiropractic treatment really works and has given me my life back! Dan (the sceptic turned believer)

Today we had our 6 month care appointment and what felt like a long road has gone by not only quickly but with much relief as well. My quality of life and the quality of life for my daughter has improved drastically from one. We originally started going because of my inability to sleep through night due to pain in my right should and back, while my daughter had been diagnosed with back to back double ear infections. Since going my daughter has not had a single ear infection and has gotten through the winter extremely healthy compared to most. Colds are much shorter and we haven't had any prolonged or long lasting illnesses. Regarding my own personal health, I was told to expect an 18 month road to recovery, to plan for the need of an adjustment here or there but promise of chronic pain relief. In the last 6 months I've needed adjusting once and am happy to say all my major chronic pain has slowly reduced and is off is non-existent. I plan on continuing with care as prescribed for both myself and daughter and am so grateful that we have stuck out the commitment to our personal health.

After having worked at a traditional chiropractic office for many years I was very hesitant to try this. My neurologist recommended it to me and after a bad fall on my tailbone jarring my spine causing a series of daily migraines for over 4 months. I finally called and got my first and what needed to be my only adjustment. What I thought was just going to help relieve my headaches turned into complete body relief and actual change in body functions that have plagued me my entire life like constipation.....which I no longer suffer from just 8 weeks later. I say GO FOR IT! You’ve got everything to gain.

I had been to several different chiropractors before learning about NUCCA. NUCCA chiropractors take X-rays and develop a customized adjustment for each person. Looking back, I wish I had never had my neck - or anyone in my family's necks - cracked/popped.

NUCCA is much more gentle and precise.

Although 1st Place Chiropractic isn't the first NUCCA office we have been to, Dr Kleinfelter is one of the best with wiggly, pediatric patients. She can quickly check leg length and get the adjustment done, (if needed).

Dr Kleinfelter cares about her clients, listens to their concerns, and does her best to help them achieve optimal health results. She knows a lot about other methods of chiropractic care and can help me understand the difference. She was also willing to look at X-rays taken at other practitioners' offices to help me understand what's happening in my children's necks.

I recommend this treatment for anyone who has had a concussion, head trauma, whiplash or traumatic birth. I wish I had discovered NUCCA 35 years ago. First visit for evaluation is free, and Dr's and staff are friendly and approachable. I'm telling anyone who will listen, Don't wait, get checked, this is not your typical chiropractic visit.

I got sick with Lyme Disease in 2009. I didn’t know it was Lyme, but it first manifested as severe shoulder, neck, and head pain that was debilitating. I went to the chiropractor I had seen before getting I’ll, the “snap and crack” kind and I felt so much worse after. I couldn’t tolerate the manipulation anymore; my body became so sensitive. I then learned of NUCCA and 1ST Place Chiropractic. The method is so gentle but so effective. I can tolerate such gentle manipulation of the atlas. NUCCA has even helped my neck regain its natural curve. It is the only kind of chiropractic I’ll ever recommend! I love NUCCA and the entire staff of 1ST Place is kind, considerate, and has definitely been part of my healing team for about 4-5 years now.

2010. My son has amblyopia (lazy eye) and my daughter has esotropia (cross eyed). After Dr. Kleinfelter reviewed our x-rays and then started adjusting us, she said that our children's vision would probably improve. That was an understatement! Six months later, the ophthalmologist was so shocked at how drastically their vision had improved that she was flipping through their charts to see what their vision was when they first got glasses years earlier (my son at 4 and my daughter at 2). In April 2013, our ophthalmologist informed us that our son's vision was now a perfect 20/20 and he no longer needs to wear glasses! At four years old, he was 20/100 in his right eye -- his brain was literally not working with his eye and he was going blind in that eye. Our son also had signs of motor Tourette Syndrome (runs in our family) since age three causing uncontrollable/involuntary muscle movements of the arms, shoulders, head, and face. These movements were getting worse as he was getting older. However, within six month of working with Dr. Kleinfelter, they completely diminished -- 100%! He no longer has this condition. Our daughter's vision also continues to improve tremendously and she should be out of her glasses within the next year or two. And, my husband and I feel great also! We both feel healthier than we did in our twenties (I am 49 and he is 50). We highly recommend Dr. Kleinfelter!

My sister first told me about NUCCA chiropractic after she started seeing a practitioner in the St. Louis area. She had a host of problems ranging from allergies to Meniere's disease. I was amazed at how it had helped her. About a year later, I was experiencing numbness going down my right arm from a pinched nerve in my neck. It was progressively getting worse. I had experienced this several years prior and received cortisone shots for it. I was concerned that my cervical spine was deteriorating (old injuries) and that I would most likely have to have surgery. I decided to try NUCCA based on my sisters success. I found First Place Chiropractic on the internet and made an appointment. On my first visit, X-rays were taken and other diagnostic tests performed. My spine was out of alignment, they outlined a treatment plan and I accepted. It was the best decision I made for myself. I had one adjustment, and days later the numbness was completely gone. I was able to get back out on the tennis courts and play again! I thought that I would never be able to do that again. The NUCCA technique is unlike other methods of chiropractic in that they only adjust the atlas bone at the base of the brain stem. You barely feel their touch when they adjust you. I encourage everybody to research NUCCA and give it a try before resorting to more invasive procedures and temporary fixes. I am so thankful to the wonderful Doctors and staff at First Place Chiropractic for their caring attitude and expertise with their patients.

This is hands down the most gentle Chiropractor I have ever been to! I have been getting adjustments since the age of 12 and have had many different techniques used to fix my subluxations. I drive approximately 40 minutes past other chiropractors in my area to get to Dr. Kleinfelter's office in St. Charles. I do this because she has done wonders for my aches and pains. Dr. Kleinfelter does a technique that chiropractors in my area do not. It is upper cervical adjustment or adjustment of the atlas also known as C1. At first I was skeptical that such painless quick adjustment would work for me....but not anymore!! When I am out of alignment I have headaches, swelling in my lymph nodes, my allergies act up and I have knee pain and this one adjustment that Dr. Kleinfelter does fixes all four ailments. Another bonus is that after she fixes me...I sleep like a rock.

I have been a patient at First Place Chiropractic for 10 years. Prior to getting care here, for years, I had more days in a month with migraine than without; it was rare for me not to have a headache. Looking back, I don't know how I functioned. Medicine didn't really work, nothing did -- until I saw Dr. Kleinfelter. I had been very anti-chiropractic because I had gotten hurt by a chiropractor years before and swore I'd never do it again. My aunt who had tried a NUCCA doctor out west convinced me to try: I was miserable and what did I have to lose? That was 10 years ago. I come regularly, and now I only have a migraine when I'm out of alignment. Moreover, my TMJ symptoms improved 85% immediately after my first appointment. Now I have problems with TMJ only when I need an adjustment.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Kleinfelter and her NUCCA practice. The quality of my life radically improved because of her. Family and friends see her now because they saw the improvement I experienced. Perhaps the biggest testimonial I can give is that my daughter began seeing Dr. Kleinfelter when she was a week old. She had had a traumatic birth experience, and I believe she would've needed extensive physical therapy, had it not been for the immediate NUCCA care she received. I can't recommend Dr. Kleinfelter highly enough: She has been a complete blessing in our lives.

I first became introduced to NUCCA chiropractic about 8 years ago. A NUCCA Chiropractor came to our bike club meeting & I was first introduced to a NUCCA Chiropractor for my first treatment 8 years ago. After about 7 weeks of treatment twice a week, I started going every 6 months. Then I was going for treatments 6 months to 1 year. When I go in for an adjustment it usually lasts from 6 months to a year. I have had great results. Dr Kleinfelter doesn't twist orturn your body for the adjustment. I really don't feel anything when I get the adjustment, but I sure feel better afterwards.

I was used to outstanding chiropractic care, but moving to Illinois was a shocker. After 5 years of trying chiropractors, I finally decided to try NUCCA which is a precise form of chiropractic. I went to First Place and was examined to ensure I would benefit from NUCCA, X-rayed, and then a very gentle and precise adjustment. This has changed my life! My entire body is healing in many ways I never thought possible. The constantly needed adjustments from past injuries are no longer necessary. I have much better posture, no pain, no numbness or tingling in my hands, no headaches, no backache, no nothing. And, as a flight attendant, my body takes a pretty good beating, so I required 3 re-adjustments in the first 4 months, but no re-adjustments over the last 3-4 months. NUCCA is the one chiropractic everyone should try before drugs and surgery, specially if you have ever suffered any type of trauma to the back, neck, or head.

I was recommended to 1st Place Chiropractic by a friend in August of 2012. I am eternally grateful to my friend for her insistence that I see Dr. Kleinfelter. I had an acute case of stenosis in my lower back that caused shooting pain down both legs and into the my feet. Dr. Kleinfelter and her team have been great. One adjustment and within days I was pain free and that has lasted through the four years since. I have recommended numerous friends and acquaintances to 1st Place Chiropractic and each and everyone has had a similar experience. I know everything Dr. Kleinfelter does is based on precise science and I am still amazed how a gentle adjustment can make such a significant change and improvement in my overall health and well being. If you have any chronic pain or have been diagnosed with stenosis or sciatic nerve issues, I urge you to see Dr. Kleinfelter and the 1st Place Chiropractic team. You will feel better!

Since my first two adjustments, I have seen Dr. Orsini three times in the past three months to ensure I am still in alignment which is a nice change from other chiropractors who want to see you every week. Dr. Orsini is very knowledgeable about chiropractic and general wellness as well as is professional and polite. I highly recommend Dr. Orsini and First Place Chiropractic.

I went to see Dr. Orsini for upper back tightness and neck pain that I had been experiencing for over 30 years. After just a few months, I have forgotten what it feels like to have any discomfort at all. Dr. Orsini has a very caring, compassionate bedside manner that immediately put me at ease. His gentle adjustment technique is stress free and unlike any other chiropractor that I have ever been to. As a lifelong runner it feels great to have no muscle or joint pain!

I've been a patient for almost 7 years but had a cervical fusion approximately 3 years prior to becoming a patient. I noticed a difference pretty quickly in the reduction of headaches and chronic neck pain. I had also had a reverse curve in my neck and had received years of conventional chiropractic care with no change in my curve. Although it's been gradual, the curve in my neck is back to a normal curvature.

I have never experienced true healing like what I did after seeing Dr. Kleinfelter. I suffered for 3 years with low back pain induced by pregnancy. I saw 6 different physical therapists, a few doctors, and a traditional chiropractor with no great improvement. After my first adjustment by Dr. K, I felt immediate relief and I knew my search for the key to healing was over. I almost cried in her office I was so happy and relieved! Since then, I have noticed other, unexpected improvements. My hormones are coming back into balance, and my immune system is notably stronger. My husband and my kids now see her, too, and it has helped very much with their various ailments. This is such a hidden gem - I wish all people knew how the body can heal itself if given the chance!

In 2011 I had exteme pain in my lower back and my left leg. I wasn’t able to walk and was wheelchaied into the ER where I was given a MRI to find out I had 2 herniated disks (L4 & L5) I then was given a cocktail of medications that included morphine and valium and then was wheelchaired down to the hospitals pain management center and received cortisone injections into my spine. It was my sister that recommended that I go see Dr. Kleinfelter. I was extremely skeptical about any chiropractic treatment but I agreed to go, I was desperate for relief. I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Kleinfelter and her associates for 8 years now and I know that her practice has kept me from having back surgery and kept me from needing cortisone shots. I had relief from my agonizing pain from the first treatment! These doctors are amazing and truly made a difference in my quality of life. 💜

Doctor Leigh came to my work to do a seminar type thing. There were IT problems and that means "someone go get Murph" and I helped. Stuck around, watched, and kinda related this to other stuff I've been doing in my life the last 2 years. Go into it believing. Yeah it sounds weird, hokey, but I went in believing. First appointment, she did some stuff, and man...

Look, I dunno if it's in my head, psychosomatic I think is the word, but who cares. If you believe it, it's a thing. I found Christianity a couple years ago and holy crap the changes in my life from then till now. I recommend you give them a try. Go in with an open head, they're gonna say some stuff that you're gonna go "ummmmmm....that's crazy talk", but BELIEVE. They're super nice, they laugh at all my dumb jokes, I always feel welcome, they answer EVERY question I think of.

I'm into it. And I feel changes and people are noticing I walk different and sit different and man...just go with it and it'll be real. I'm in week 2. They say give it 4-6. I'll give them 8. So far though, I'm in. Give it a shot.

As a massage therapist, I understand the mechanics of the body. I was experience chronic tingling and numbness in my hands. I tried several other chiropractors, massage therapy and physical therapy and was not finding relief. Because I had these symptoms for 3 years, it took several months for it to completely diminish, but I could feel relief, and improvement that I did not feel with the other therapies. In addition, because I am in alignment and my body is more balanced, I have no knee discomfort and no low back pain.

It was a totally different experience than I had ever had before with explanations that went far beyond anything I had before. My symptoms have improved and in some cases been eliminated entirely. After 5 months a chronic problem I had was gone and I felt better than I had in 20-30 years. I had my wife see Dr Kleinfelter and her symptoms have improved also. All this has happened with no painful adjustments. I would, have and continue to recommend 1st Chiropractic and staff to others

I have received all types of Chiropractic and Acupuncture over the years. NUCCA made sense but it was hard for me to understand that there was no cracking and popping to adjust me! After my first appointment, It really was unreal how my posture was off in my hips, shoulders and neck. It really explained all of the pain I had been experiencing over the years that I attributed to "getting older".What I like the most about 1st Place is there goal is to have you hold your adjustment and that you can see the success in the post- treatment XRAY. I am 2 weeks post adjustment and have held my adjustment. My sleep is better, my pain is 90% gone in my lower back.

I originally went to see Dr.Kleinfelter due to my severe chronic migraines. I believe that their therapy helped improve my condition. I had to move out of state, and have not been able to locate a chiropractor who helped as much as Dr.K was able to, and I wish I lived closer so I could get realigned again. While the migraines are still there, First Place Chiropractic helped me with another issue. After my father passed away, my jaw instantly locked after grinding it while sleeping. For months I was unable to get it open very far, and it was incredibly painful. I tried physical therapy to heal it, and an orthopedic appliance among other things and nothing helped relieve my pain. After literally the first alignment correction with Dr.K my jaw completely unlocked. If you are in chronic pain and are desperately hoping for relief, I would highly recommend you give them a shot.

Our entire family has been greatly helped by the good care at 1st Place Chiropractic! I began at 1st Place because I had been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and experienced daily pain in my connective tissues (muscles, tendons, and ligaments). After about one year of consistent care from 1st Place, my symptoms were gone! Today, about 10 years later, I continue to live pain-free. Due to my success, my husband and son - both of whom experienced consistent back pain - began receiving treatment. My son's back pain ceased upon receiving care, and my husband's dissipated over a period of a couple months! They continue to be free of pain today! Our other son also began receiving treatment even though he had no presenting symptoms - simply because we became convinced of the overall health of our bodies when our spines are in proper alignment with our brains! We are SO THANKFUL for 1st Place Chiropractic, and we have told many others about it and they have also gone and been equally helped!

They are a very giving office, making donations to causes each month. They also have an outreach program to inform the public of healthy choices and of their NUCCA procedure. Highly recommend!

I have been going to 1st. Place Chiropractic for approximately 10 years. I have had bilateral knee and hip replacements and they have helped me to be able to walk without pain. I am very happy that I found them. I continue to go to them when I feel a need. I enjoy the friendliness of all the staff.

I got Lyme Disease in 2009. It has greatly affected my shoulders, neck, and head. I tried to resume the type of chiropractic I had done before getting sick but it exacerbated my symptoms so much instead of provide any relief. The “snap and crack” method was too much for my body to handle. I was then told about NUCCA and 1ST Place Chiropractic. The gentleness of the adjustments are what my body needs, and the NUCCA technique has helped my neck to regain its natural curvature. It’s incredible and I wouldn’t recommend anything but NUCCA to anyone looking for a chiropractor. 1ST Place Chiropractic has been a godsend!

We love 1st Place Chiropractor and Dr. Kleinfelter. My son has been helped for over 2 years for scoliosis. We have not seen any increase in his curve and improvements in all other measurements! He holds his adjustments longer, has little to no headaches, no pain, and his hip alignment continues to improve! Everyone in the office is very helpful, kind and the wait time is very reasonable!

I’ve been going to 1st Place chiropractic for a few years now, and it’s helped me to manage many symptoms of chronic illness, such as pain, brain fog, fatigue and migraines. From my first visit, it was explained in detail how NUCCA worked, and how it would help with my body’s natural healing process. When I’m out of alignment, everything flares up, and I’m always amazed what a difference it can make after an adjustment. On a personal note, the staff is compassionate, generous, and knowledgeable, and have been very supportive through my health experience. Thanks 1st Place, highly recommend!

I'd recommend this business to anyone that is having pain in their daily lives! I've been going for over a year and I feel so much better! I actually felt amazing the first time I was adjusted! I also know when I'm out of alignment so I make sure to go see Dr. K and Dr. Leah asap!

Growing up I struggled with back pain since I was 5. My family found this place and I started coming 10 years ago. All my struggles went away. I no longer have to do back exercises and can live pain free. The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming. Each visit they welcome you by name and address any problems you've been having with excellence. Would 100% recommend to anyone with back pain of any sort. It's helped me and I hope others will take advantage of their services.

I can’t adequately express in a short review how Dr. Kleinfelter and her staff have changed my life. Before I came here, I had to quit my job due to back, neck, arm, and shoulder pain. Now I’m feeling almost completely normal! Their goal is to truly fix the problem, not just temporarily make you feel better. I feel like they are dedicated to me as their patient and take their commitment to my health seriously. Its like a family environment, very welcoming. Please do yourself a favor and invest in your health by coming in!!

Dr. Gill and Sarah came to my school to provide 10 minute massage sessions for my staff in December. They were a pleasure to work with and the staff greatly appreciated the stress relief.

Dr. Gill and another associate came to our school to provide free 10-minute chair massages to our staff during our lunch hours. This was such a wonderful experience as teaching can be a stressful job and the staff so looked forward to this opportunity. Dr. Gill and Sarah were on time, efficient and professional. It was a real help!

I have been going to 1st Place Chiropractic for years and have been very happy. I have had hip replacements so I can not be twisted to adjust. I heard of NUCCA and tried it and have been very happy. They have been there for me and help me everytime. The staff is great, and very pleasant and accommodating. I would recommend them to anyone. Dr. Kleinfelter is the best.

When I was 22 years old I was struck with a debilitating and inexplicable condition of perpetual vertigo, which often resulted in painful headaches and nausea, and made everyday tasks such as driving and doing my work extremely difficult. I saw many medical experts and they could not find the source of the problem. I did not know I was badly misaligned and as the conditioned worsened, my head became heavier over time to the point where it was hard to hold it up and I had neck and lower back pain. By the grace of God, after 20 years of suffering, I learned about 1st Place Chiropractic and Dr. Kyrie Kleinfelter showed me by x-rays that my spinal misalignment could be the source of my problems. She did a gentle and painless adjustment which took 30 seconds and now, 18 months later, I am almost 100% healed! I've only needed 2 adjustments and my body has continued to heal on its own. This entire process, including x-rays, adjustments and follow-up appointments has cost me only $1500, which is so minimal for having my health back. I give all the glory to God, and thank Him and 1st Place Chiropractic for leading me to a place of healing.

I have been seeing Dr. K since 2011 and it has been pretty amazing. It is now possible for me to shop for more than two hours without my lower back bothering me. Having one small bone in alignment had made all of the difference.

a couple years ago my wife finally convinced me to go see Dr Kleinfelter. I thought "they aren't going to do anything but take my money" Boy was I wrong! After a couple of adjustments my back felt much better and my acid reflux that I have fought with since I was a teenager was gone! It still amazes me how such a little adjustment can make such a big difference but it does. Trust me, go check it out!

Here is a list of the symptoms I had when I first went to 1st Place Chiropractic. Some were daily and some were periodic...

Internal facial pain (dull ache to sharp shooting pain, mostly on the right side of face, including ear and under jaw)
External facial pain (right side, burning sensation)
Large blister-like sores on right side of face and chin, inside mouth and nose
Small blister-like sores on knuckles (feels like being stabbed with a pin)
Daily, debilitating headache behind eyes, center of forehead, and right temple (pain greatly increases if I bend over)
Head fog (difficulty thinking, processing, remembering)
Pain in the neck and going up back of the head
Visual distortion when looking from one place to another
Vision in right eye greatly decreased
Right side of face and eyelid twitches frequently
Left leg twitching/spasms
Left knee pain
Gums and inside nose would open in slits and bleed when nerves were really aggravated
Swollen upper lip (twice it’s normal size) accompanied by sores
Extreme fatigue and all-over weak feeling, as well as consistent aching in arms and legs Lower back pain/sciatic pain
Pain under my ribs on left side when I breathe in
Sleep deprived (no matter how long I slept, it felt like I didn’t)
Swelling in hands and feet/painful joints
Sometimes pain, sometimes tingling or numbness in right arm and hand
Cramping in left leg and foot (toes twist down and get stuck with much pain)
Ringing in ears
Poor circulation (feeling cold all the time)
Low blood pressure
Frequent respiratory illness
Allergies/congestion
It would hurt to breathe through my nose, so I didn’t
Various stomach problems (daily nausea, pain, sometimes constipation, sometimes irritable bowel)
ALL GONE! When I am holding my alignment I experience NONE of these symptoms. If I go out of alignment, I experience only a few of them anymore, but then I get a very gentle correction and they're gone again!
I could not function without Upper Cervical Chiropractic. 1st Place Chiropractic, Dr. Kleinfelter, and staff are one of the greatest blessings in my life!!!
