A Treatment that Sticks

“A neck injury from over 12 years ago rendered me unable to turn my head all the way to the left.  After 2 visits with Dr. Winters, this has been almost completely resolved.  Despite all the other chiropractic care I’ve received, the mobility would always be lost within a few days of adjustment.  Not with Dr. Winters – this is treatment that sticks.”
– Justin D.

Range of Motion

“Prior to seeing Dr. Winters, my neck and shoulders felt like they were in a vise grip.  I had very limited range of motion.  Now, I am vise grip free!  My range of motion is excellent. I couldn’t be happier.”
– Kimberly M.

Patient Satisfaction

“This is the only doctor’s appointment I look forward to!”

Spinal Fusion

“For years I have always been looking for relief from the pain in my spine. Well, I have finally found it with the help from Dr. Winters.”
– Joan R.


“Since coming (to Dr. Winters), I can now walk with my head up and look at the sky without falling or getting dizzy”
– Donna S.

Chronic Back Pain

“On a friend’s recommendation, I began seeing Dr. Winters about six weeks ago.  I was frankly shocked when, after just two treatments, my back pain was significantly better.  Today, after 8 treatments, my back pain is almost gone and my neck stiffness significantly reduced.  I’ve gone from persistent, if bearable, pain to just and occasional twinge brought on by specific movements or postures.

Prior to Dr. Winters’ thorough initial evaluation, no one had ever taken a holistic look at the way my body moved, or didn’t more.  By treating me from that holistic perspective, she’s given me results I simply didn’t expect — an almost pain-free back and more fluid movement overall.  With a few more visits focused on rehabilitation exercises, I expect to be completely pain-free someday soon.

On a side note, it’s been fascinating to see how my habitual movements have changed now that I’m in better alignment. Sometimes you don’t realize something is wrong until it’s not wrong anymore.”

Long-Term Neck & Back Problems
“I truly believe (Dr. Winters) helped me more than anyone else, and solved 20 years of neck and back problems.”
– Mike L.

Neck & Back Pain after Motor Vehicle Accident

“Nothing was giving me lasting relief until I went to Great River Chiropractic. Dr. Winter was thorough, not only in the consultation and evaluation, but also in her treatment plan… addressing everything contributing to my neck and back pain, including my car seat and office chair, my bed pillow, (and) problems with my feet.
She was a great resource for finding what I needed and referring me to other specialists. She was always conscientious and timely in providing me with information requested by my insurance company. Dr. Winters is an excellent clinician and a delightful and caring person.
I am no longer in pain, thanks to Dr. Winters.”
– Gina B.

Chronic Hip Pain

“I came to Great River Chiropractic because of recurring, severe pain in my left hip. I could not sleep, walk or sit for very long. I found Dr. Winters to be totally receptive to my concerns as she listed carefully and attentively. I could feel she was committed to returning me to my active lifestyle.
Dr. Winters’ Atlas approach is simple, efficient and effective. After one visit, my pain had diminished 75% and was 95% less after two visits. After three visits, I was virtually pain free and have remained that way.
This is the best chiropractic service I have received in 20 years.”
– Mary G.

Chronic Digestive Problems

“I started working with Dr. Margaret Winters in June of 2009. I was experiencing chronic bowel issues. Through regular visits and changes to my diet, I am now healthy and balanced.”
– Kathy S.


“I was sent to Dr. Winters when the temporo-mandibular dental specialist found that I had a subluxation of the cervical spine. I have been seeing Dr. Winters to improve both the issues with my neck and my posture. She has given me several adjustments and exercises to do.
The time between visits has increased and… I am doing well.”
– Andrea H.

Migraine Headache

“I first started having migraines as a teenager, and would have one at least every two weeks. Since I’ve been seeing Dr. Winters, I rarely have migraines and they are not nearly as bad. Now when I have a headache, the atlas orthogonal adjustment takes care of it.”
– Paula J.

Low Back Pain

“I want to tell everyone how much Dr. Margaret Winters has helped me. Before I came to Great River Chiropractic, I could barely walk and I could only stand for 2 or 3 minutes. After 5 visits I am walking blocks instead of steps and I can stand long periods of time without any back pain. I have been to chiropractors in the past but none of them did as thorough an evaluation or were as gentle as Dr. Winters.”
– Nancy G.

Neck Pain, Out-of-Town Patient

“Thank you so much for the care you gave me in my acute need last month. You went way beyond the call of duty in the attention to detail and the time you took to help me become more functional. Given the understanding you shared with me, I would like to now work with a chiropractor here at home who has similar training to yours. In the past, many of the issues you pointed out were never mentioned, even though I have been using chiropractors for the last 30 years.”
– Karen Z.

Body Balance

“For years I have watched myself in the mirror at the gym while doing bicep curls.  I used to laugh at how my left elbow was higher than my right, and just assumed it was because bodies aren’t completely symmetrical.  I also knew that my left arm fatigued long before my right, but assumed that was because my right arm was stronger from carrying my children.
Apparently I was wrong on both counts.  Shortly after visiting Dr. Winters I was at the gym and suddenly noticed that my elbows were at exactly the same height.  And both arms were fatiguing at the same rate.  I was amazed.  To think that for all those years I’d been THAT out of alignment was hard to believe, but I could see the proof with my own eyes.
Add that to all the other benefits I’ve seen from my work with Dr. Winters and it adds up to one giant Thank you!!!”
– Jodi H.

First-time Chiropractic Patient

“Dr. Winters was my first chiropractic experience so I really did not know what to expect. My consult turned out to be extremely educational and enlightening. My only wish is that I could continue with Dr. Winters for follow-up treatment (I am in Boston). I highly, recommend Dr. Winters whether you are new to chiropractic or not.”
