Dr. Michael Gossett
Dealing with migraines daily for 5 years and no one was able to help:
What is life like today after beginning care?
Today we’re feeling about 80% better. The headaches have calmed down to about 1 per week instead of daily and no low back discomfort. I am able to do more things with my kids and more energy. I feel more rested after sleeping and am almost a new person.
What was life like before you started care?
For about 5 years I lived with extreme headache pain. I would wake every morning and go to sleep every night with it. I was unable to focus, think or even see straight half the time. This was very frustrating for me. I thought I would have to be this way forever.
Where did you see your life going before beginning care?
Life was standing still and wasn’t able to do much without the headaches. Being in pain all day long was tough. My husband and kids could always tell when it was the worst.
What is the most important thing you have learned while under care?
Don’t ever give up! Our body is a great machine and with the right care it can be fixed.
What words of advice would do you have for anyone wondering about chiropractic and what our office could do for them?
Dr. Gossett and staff are very knowledgeable and understanding. With a little technology and a pair of great hands , they will get you back to yourself in no time!
A patient suffering with Migraine/tension headaches for 22 years:
What was life like before you started care at Dakota Family Chiropractic?
"I have suffered with migraine/tension headaches for over 22 years. I rarely went more than a few days without a headache. I had tried the conventional treatments, but I wanted to find the root cause of my headaches, not just cover up the symptoms with medication. After a while even the medications were not effective."
What is like like today after beginning care?
"The frequency of my headaches has been greatly reduced! Because of that I have an abundance of energy and am able to enjoy the activities that I love. I wake up fully rested and ready for the day. I feel much more in tune with my body and have an increased sense of health."
Where did you see your life going before beginning care?
"I had become very frustrated with the way I was feeling. My headaches made me very tired and I would frequently have to nap after work or school instead of doing things I enjoyed. Occasionally, I would miss work because the pain was so severe."
What is the most important thing you learned while at DFC?
"I was always nervous to try Chiropractic care because I was afraid that it would hurt or not help at all. I quickly learned that Dr. Gossett's technique is gentle yet very effective. The nerve scans are also great because you can see tangible evidence that the treatments are working."
What words of advice do you have for anyone wondering about Chiropractic and/or what our office can do for them?
"I would recommend Dr. Gossett to anyone suffering with headaches. Mine have improved 100%. His technique is gentle and painless. The payment options are very reasonable. He explains what Chiropractic care entails at the consultation in a comfortable and relaxed setting."
"When I had started care with Dakota Family Chiropractic I was having headaches a couple times per week and wasn't able to focus on my family when these would happen. After a few adjustments to my neck I could start to notice the headaches get better and then they were gone. I am so glad I was referred to Dr. Gossett and DFC to help!
" We started care here due to our daughter who was having colicky issues when she was 3 months old. I had heard that chiropractic an help with that and had asked who I could trust with my daughter to help. My friend had said she had taken her son to Dr. Gossett and he was gentle and explained what was going on with the Nervous System scans. We had no idea that chiropractic could help."
"My son was was experiencing ear infections since he was 3 months old and we were doing the medical route for treatments and wasn't satisfied with the results. They would come back about every 2 months or so and we thought there has to be another way. We talked to my daycare gal and she said that they take their kids to Dr. Gossett and he has helped tremendously with them so we decided to call and make an appointment. After a few adjustments we could tell right away what a difference it made. All I can say is that if you have kids have them checked by a chiropractor."
"I have been experiencing back pain for years working in construction. I have gone to other chiropractors and have gotten good relief. Dr' Gossett took the time to explain to me why it has always come back. The scans were very helpful to see exactly how my body was reacting to the things I do everyday."
"My daughter would wake up every couple hours and be so wound up we didn't get much sleep. A friend recommended we go see Dr. Gossett. After checking his website and talking to my friend I decided to make the call. Besides, what could it hurt. I didn't know what to expect but Dr. Gossett walked me through everything and calmed my nerves. The first adjustment was so gentle I didn't think it did much. That night she slept the best she has in weeks! ( I didn't as I was expecting her to always be up) The next couple weeks what a difference. I am thankful to have found Chiropractic for now all my kids."
I took our son to Dr. Mike when he was 2 months old. He was only feeding on one side and not turning his head very well to the other side. Dr. Mike checked his spine with an instrument and found that he had his top bone in the neck was not in the right position. After one adjustment he was turning his head easier and eating better too. We had hi come in a few times a week for a couple weeks and now we see Dr. Mike as a family about 2 times a month. Thanks!
