Chiropractic in Grand Junction

Success Stories

I'm a trail runner and was frequently injured before I started seeing Dr. Lonquist. He took the time to figure out what was wrong and has helped me run pain free. He is by far the best chiropractor I have been too and I highly recommend him. Rebecca Y.

I am 66 and was having dizziness and balance issues for more than year. After only a few adjustments I felt a huge relief and no longer say that its just my age. I continue to have adjustments since the price is reasonable. I had not had any adjustments for more than 40 years and now beginning to loosen up. I am grateful. Donna E.

BEST value and care! $79 for UNLIMITED monthly care is amazing! Mackenzie D.

I’ve known Dr. Lonquist personally and professionally for more than 15 years. Dan is one of the most genuine, talented, and capable individuals I’ve ever known and when it comes to his chiropractic business, there is no one I could recommend with more confidence or enthusiasm. I’ve been active my entire life from high school and college athletics to most of the outdoor recreational activities that Colorado has to offer, including alpine ski racing for over 10 years. Needless to say, my active lifestyle took its toll on my body eventually causing muscle/joint pain and numbness in my hands and arms, which was very disconcerting. After an initial consultation and thorough assessment of my alignment, Dr. Lonquist, quickly got the root of my problems and within one week’s time, my hands were back to normal and have remained so ever since. There is absolutely no doubt that Dr. Lonquist knows his business. I was able to realize complete recovery to my issues with out costly and dangerous surgery. I could not recommend him higher. Bob J.
--------------------------------------------------
I so rarely take time to take care of my self that finally my body had said ENOUGH. After years of training I started experiencing pain my shoulders, and terrible pain and tightness in my mid back. Dr Lonquist is AMAZING! The best chiropractic experience I have ever had! He provides a complete treatment; muscle relaxation, massage, and adjustment. The attention and care given by him and his staff is priceless. Dr. Lonquist is in tune and can read the body well, hitting just the right spot, restoring harmony to my body. I had so many aches and pains through the last year of training that I started seeing him a few times a week for chiropractic. My weekly treatments with him have alleviated back pain and allowed my to lift without pain in my shoulder. Chiropractic care from Dr Lonquist is a gift. Thank you to him and his friendly staff for all their care and attention, I have never felt better! Afterwards, I felt less pain in my joints and less tightness in my back. I'm truly amazed at how by body is feeling! I look forward to future sessions. Alyssa R.

After suffering for 8 years with a neck injury that kept me from looking over my left shoulder, created daily headaches and caused numbness down my arms and into my fingertips, I came to Dr. Lonquist for help. As a Personal Trainer, Fitness Instructor and a very active outdoor enthusiast, my neck was keeping me from reaching my full athletic potential. After just two months of adjustments 3 days a week, I have almost full range in my neck, I haven't had a headache for 6 weeks and the numbness in my arms have subsided. Not only am I grateful for the immediate relief of my symptoms, I am very impressed with Dr. Lonquist's philosophy of getting to the root of my pain rather than a quick fix of the surface pain. Why would I recommend Dr. Lonquist? Because he is the first chiropractor that I have been to who is interested in not only my adjustment but my over all well being. Stacy A.
----------------------------------------
I was initially hesitant to seek professional help for a recurring shoulder pain I had for several years. I called the office and was immediately assured by the courteous, helpful office manager, Janine. She assured me that she could assist me in using my health insurance and schedule me for visits that met my tough schedule.
After a few visits to Dr. Lonquist, the pain I was having in my shoulder was almost completely gone and any recurring pain I realized after working out or by heaving lifting at work was mitigated by a quick visit to the clinic.
One other effect I noticed from visiting back to health was how much better my sleep pattern became. I did not attribute restless nights to shoulder pain, especially since I did not awake from the pain, however, I believe seeing Dr. Lonquist regularly has helped increase my all around health. Thanks Dr. Lonquist! Bill S.
-------------------------------
I first started going to Dr. Lonquist about 2 years ago when I strained my neck really bad. I was always in so much pain. If i slept wrong I would be miserable the entire day. I was scared to see a chiropractor because I wasn't fond of the whole "neck cracking" idea. My sister who had already been going to see Dr. Lonquist, assured me everything would be fine, and that it was. My neck took a while to heal but because of the adjustments, it has been able to do so with out medicines or large doctor bills. The office is very friendly and always available for quick last minute visits and of course emergencies:) I enjoy my visits and am glad I made the decision to change my life. Jennifer J.
------------------------------------------
Dr. Lonquist uses gentle but effective treatment. I have had back problems most my life growing up and he has helped ease my pain and discomfort! He is also extremely knowledgeable with healthy living and natural treatments/alternatives to medication! I would recommend him to everyone! Janine M.
---------------------------------------------
Dr. Lonquist is very knowledgeable, compassionate and caring and he has the best interest and health in mind. He has helped me with various health issues that MD's could not. With his new monthly membership plan, his services are very affordable and convenient. His staff is very friendly. Dr. Lonquist is wonderful and I recommend that everyone use him for their chiropractic and wellness care. --- Lisa B

--------------------------------------------

I absolutely love Dr. Lonquist and the rest of the staff at Back to Health Chiropractic. They are very friendly and accommodating. They never fail to make me feel personally welcome and appreciated. My first chiro experience was with a different local practice and way too theatrical for me. Dr. Lonquist has a down to earth and honest way about him. I started treatment during my second pregnancy and after my son's birth the weight just melted off. I also used to suffer from severe neck and shoulder pain on a daily basis. I very rarely hurt there anymore and when I do it isn't nearly as severe. I feel healthier and stronger all around. After a treatment I instantly feel taller! I am so impressed and happy with my chiropractic experience that I recommend Dr. Lonquist to everyone and I am sharing the experience of better health with my family as I bring my husband and sons in at least once a month. Thank you for always having our best interest at heart! ---Rachel P.

I recently been having troubles with my back and it has effected my day to day activities. I heard about Back to Health Wellness Center and decided to try it. I was very hesitant to try it because of scary stories about nerve issues. Since I have started getting adjusted on a regular basis my back has not gone out once. Which has totally changed my life. I can now play with my boys and be pain free.... Tiffany S.

I am an RN who works full time, lifting and managing patients. I have been doing this for almost 20 years. Six months ago I was living on Motrin ( I brophen 800 mg, as often as I could) and tylenol. Since seeing Dr. Lonquist I am completely off motrin and don't have the constant pain that I was having. I am sleeping better and able to exercise on a regular basis now. Sherri H.

I have found that my focus on my responsibilities to maintain and improve overall health has been driven by chiropractic treatment. It started with adjustments, leading to improved eating habits, decreased unhealthy habits, regular exercise and comes back to regular adjustment. Every person I've told about how much it's helped me have come in to give it a try and have become just as amazed and satisfied with the results.S. H.

"It has been a year now since I began treatment here at Back to Health Wellness Center. Before I began treatment I had chronic back problems due to heavy lifting in my teens and twenty's. Since I've undergone chiropractic care my back problems have almost vanished. I am eating better, I'm less ill and my overall health has improved. Thanks to Back to Health Wellness Center. " - Tom D.

"Since I started coming to the chiropractor, I have experienced many positive changes. Not only have I had less headaches, I have finally found a solution for my chronic wrist pain. This is  pretty much the first time in almost six years that I can actually fully enjoy activities like bowling or tennis without experiencing severe wrist pains. In summary, I am fully convinced that chiropractic care is one of the best choices I have made in a long time! Many thanks to you, Doc, for helping me find a pain-free future!" Aleigha M.

"Before I committed to regular chiropractic treatment, I constantly suffered from headaches and neck pain. Eventually this progressed into migraines and that's when  I made a decision to put my health first. As a mother of 3 boys under 5 and a baby on the way this was a tough commitment to make, but all the staff here have been so great entertaining the kids and have made it easy to fit regular treatment into my routine! After just a few months of treatment, my headaches have practically gone away. In turn, my quality of life has gotten better also, filtering the feeling of wellness into all areas of my life. So glad I made this choice for myself and my family!" Brenda P.

"Back to Health has made an enormous change on our lifestyle. The way we view nutrition, exercise, and the importance of chiropractic care. It has been the best decision toward preventive health care. If we knew how well we were going to feel we would have started years ago. Dr. Lonquist and his staff have been very supportive with a positive atmosphere. We plan to continue our preventative health care and thank Back to Health for being a part of our healing process".  Darcy W. and Cindy M.

"Our 5 month old son was suffering with a persistent ear infection accompanied by severe (and worrisome) congestion and an inability to sleep from more than a short time. We called Back to Health and were advised to bring him in. He was adjusted and he fell peacefully to sleep and ended up taking a good long nap for the first time in days! Even better, his congestion noticeably decreased. Amazing!" Sylvia K.

Now the pain in my joints is very minimal and I no longer need to avoid hiking from fear of pain. I believe that the adjustments from Dr. Lonquist have been a crucial part of my improvement. I would recommend his care to anyone. It has made a tremendous difference in my life". Anna S.

"My back pain has gone- before coming to Dr. Lonquist I wasn't able to finish my shift as a waitress without my back hurting so much I couldn't stand it. Now, since my adjustments I can work my whole shift and all week without having that pain that I had. So it has been a real blessing to me. Also, I have more energy too. Before after working I was so burnt out I didn't want to do anything but rest, now I have energy to still be active". Lori C.

"I have dealt with migraine headaches for over 15 years. Chiropractic with Dr. Lonquist has decreased the amount and intensity of my migraines.

I would like to take a moment to share a personal story on the subject of being in charge of your own health. Years ago, Dr Daniel Lonquist and I would play racquetball every Tuesday night. Afterword, we would go for a bite to eat. During one of those meals, I shared with him my lifelong struggle with getting strep throat every year, sometimes twice a year. It was costing me a weeks worth of work nearly every year. During this conversation, I expressed that I must have bad tonsils. Dan replied, "If you are getting sick all the time, it is YOUR fault. You need to pay attention to your body and what you are doing to make yourself sick". I did not like to hear that. How can I be responsible for having bad tonsils all my life. It is just something I have to deal with and cram antibiotics when I need to. Once that little statement sunk in, and I began to think about it, I began to pay attention. I was not a breakfast eater, I drank water, but not enough and I believe worst of all, I was a soda drinker. It took me three years of PAYING ATTENTION to realize the pattern that I was in. There were two IDENTICAL occurrences of the onset of strep after that dinner in two separate years. I was worn out from my physical job by mid afternoon and rather than rest, hydrate, or do something otherwise healthy, I did what any good brainwashed consumer would do, I downed a cola to perk me up and get me through the afternoon. Within an hour and a half of drinking the cola, I could literally feel my throat begin to constrict and inflame and my body became extremely fatigued. After recovering, I began a new way of living. I cut soda completely from my diet and replaced it with water. It was difficult, because as any cola drinker will tell you, "I can't drink water, it has no flavor". How stupid that sounds now. I also began getting used to getting up 15 minutes earlier and making a good breakfast. Since these changes, the onset of which has been appx. 18 years ago, I have not had even one episode of strep. Additionally, I have been overall a more healthy and vibrant person as well as I think more clearly. So in closing, I will say, that in sports it is said that, the best defense is a good offense, conversely, I would say that, in health, the best offense is a good defense. There is no substitute for giving your body every chance to fight illnesses using it's own God given defense system. Treat your body will and it will treat you well. Thank you Dan. Your advice was a life changer. Bill O.
