Zaylynn came to us at 5 months old when her Mom and Pediatrician noticed that she had a severe head tilt and would not turn to look right.

Upon examination, Doctor Amy found that Zaylynn had a severe subluxation in her C1 (upper cervical – neck area). This is sometimes called Torticollis and is seen quite often in babies at various ages. Not many pediatricians notice these conditions but thankfully Zaylynn’s did and made the suggestion to her Mom to get it checked out further.

         Before – Visit #1         After – Visit #4


As seen in these two pictures, the one Before was taken on her 1st appointment before any adjustment was done and the After picture was taken on visit #4. What a difference! Zaylynn’s nervous system is now flowing properly and she will continue to grow to be a healthy and happy little girl!  – Zaylynn, as stated by her Mom, Practice Member since 2018




“Since I started coming to Bergen Family Chiropractic, I can say that my pain levels are  barely noticeable, my posture has improved, and my headaches have subsided. I never would have thought this treatment plan would have worked for me but I will gladly admit I was wrong!! I will continue with my maintenance appointments because I do not want to go back to feeling like I did before.” – Della, Practice Member since 2017




Jim came to us with back and shoulder pain from a sports injury many years ago. His daughter recommended Dr. Amy as she was already a patient and had good results with her adjustments (his grandchildren even get adjustments too).  Jim is continuing his care here to help keep his nervous system flowing at its optimal level by coming in every 2 weeks. “Everyone at Bergen Family Chiropractic is always friendly and helpful and I would recommend Bergen Family Chiropractic to friends and family, Thanks Bergen Family Chiropractic!” – Jim N, Practice Member since 2016 



“Dr. Amy was able to help correct a neck misalignment that my daughter had since birth which caused difficulty controlling her bladder.  After just a few adjustments, we have seen life changing improvements for her.  She no longer has to suffer from intense anxiety about having an accident at school.  She also has less days where she is unfocused and so far is having her best school year yet!”” – As stated by her Mom, Melissa, both have been Practice Members since 2017



“Since my pregnancies, my hips and neck have been getting more stiff and sore. I wanted to address any issues before they did permanent damage to my body. My energy level was low, and combined with the stress of having a job requiring extensive travel and caring for 2 small children, I felt it was time to start caring for me so I could better care for my family.

My Chiropractic Care at Bergen Family Chiropractic has been great and life transforming. Allowing myself to care for me has benefited not only my physical well being but also my relationships have improved through my increased ability to handle stress. I have less pain and more flexibility than before either of my children were born!” – Michelle, Practice Member since September 2016



Alysia & her daughter, Aurora


This is Alysia Fink, owner “extraordinaire” of the Bergen School of the Arts, amazing Mom, and awesome practice member at Bergen Family Chiropractic with a super cool story to tell. 

Alysia has been getting adjusted for several months and she just informed us that she was able to hike 2.7 miles up AND down a mountain with that little cutie on her back without any back pain. Alysia said she even felt full of energy! She said she never would have been able to do that hike (and enjoy it, too!) before chiropractic care became part of her health care routine to keep herself healthy and vibrant.Yes!

We love stories like this because… why do we all want health in the first place? Well, most people say in order to do the things they want to do, such as, in Alysia’s case, hike a mountain with her daughter, share her love of nature with her family, and be active outdoors. Congratulations, Alysia! – Practice Member since 2014





This is our friend Larry, he came to Bergen Family Chiropractic with back problems that he had for quite a while. His daughter, stepson, and numerous friends are all practice members here and encouraged him to see if he could get relief from his constant back pain. Larry figured since he had tried managing it on his own and they all had good results with chiropractic care, that he would give it a shot!

His care plan consisted of a total of 16 visits to get his back and neck in alignment and help to improve the flow of his nervous system.

Larry started to see improvement after just a few visits and is feeling so much better. He is very confident that he now knows what the problem is thanks to Dr. Amy and how to fix it. “Dr. Amy has shown me how I need to improve my posture to help with my neck and back problems and it has helped so much!”

“I highly recommend Bergen Family Chiropractic. I love that it is close by but also that everyone in the office is super friendly and helpful.” – Larry K, practice member since 2016



Meet our friend Candie. Candie experienced sudden, severe back pain.  She went to her primary care doctor to get checked out and he recommended she see us here at Bergen Family Chiropractic.

Candie has seen significant improvements in just a few weeks.  She reports that she is sleeping so much better along with feeling much better overall. On her 12th visit, Dr. Amy did a re-scan of her nervous system and it resulted in almost a 20 point improvement.  Nice job, Candie!

Candie said “not only have I seen improvements in my back pain but I also had been having migraines for quite some time and nothing seemed to help. However, since seeing Dr. Amy, I have not had any!” Candie came in to get relief from her back pain and now she has not only that, but relief from her migraines as well. We love hearing stories like that! Thank you for sharing your story with us, Candie! – Practice member since 2016



This is our friend Jake. Jake is a pipe fitter and relies heavily on being able to bend and move around a great deal with his work. After dealing with neck and back pain, he decided to give us a call – he was referred to our office by several of his friends. When Jake came in, he could barely walk due to the amount of pain he was in and was unable to sleep through the night due to back pain. Dr. Amy recommended Jake come in to see us, 2x a week for 6 weeks.

After just 11 visits Jake has seen a significant improvement in his pain levels, can bend to take care of things at work without pain, has been sleeping better and through the night, and has even seen improvements in his sinuses. Another area of huge improvement was in Jake’s CORE Score which increased by almost 20 points. That’s awesome! Great job, Jake!

Jake said that he has really enjoyed getting his spine adjusted and will be recommending Bergen Family Chiropractic to anyone he meets.  “I am so much more conscience of my posture now and constantly reminding myself to stand and sit up straight so I keep my spine in the best shape possible!”  We’re so glad to see and hear that Jake is feeling so much better! – Jake D. – Practice member since 2016




Listen to what sweet Kassidy, age 10 had to say about her health since she’s become a Chiro-kid.
1.) What was the reason you came to Bergen Family Chiropractic?”I was having night terrors almost every night, and I had restless leg syndrome.” 2.) What results did you get from Chiropractic Care? (She has been treated for about one year) “I don’t have anymore night terrors. I haven’t had any for 6 months now. NONE!!!” 3.) Did the care help your overall health in any unexpected ways? The chiropractic adjustments “helped me feel so much better, and I got more sleep.”
Thank you so much, Kassidy, for letting us share your story! We love sharing stories like yours because it can help another child just like you! We are so happy chiropractic care has made your life GREAT! – Practice Member since 2014



Brette-Ashley & her daughter, Emerson pictured with Dr. Amy



How sweet is little Emerson?! Here’s her story..

When Emerson first came in, she could not look over her right shoulder, or look to the right at all. She was on Acid Reflux medication, had diarrhea, painful diaper rash, and she was waking up 5-7 times a night. Her mom, Brette-Ashley tried everything!

When Brette-Ashley heard about Chiropractic Care for these symptoms for her baby, she did not know what to expect… but has since told us about the AMAZING results. Within ONE adjustment she could look over her right shoulder (something she couldn’t do since birth) and within a few adjustments, she could freely look in both directions without discomfort or pain. She has been able to be taken off one of her Acid Reflux medications, has no more diarrhea (which means her tiny body can properly absorb the essential nutrients from her Mother’s milk), and she is sleeping more soundly and longer through the night. This transformation has all happened in only a couple of weeks.

The most amazing part of this story, is that just by doing a few gentle adjustments to her spine to remove subluxations, Emerson’s body has become a powerhouse of HEALING from the inside out. Naturally. Instead of years of suffering, now she can spend her early months smiling and properly growing as a happy, healthy baby. What an amazing gift to give to your child! Thank you Emerson and Brette-Ashley for your story!! – Practice members since 2000 (Brette-Ashley) & 2015 (Emerson)




Say hello to our friend Rex!

If you’ve ever met Rex, you would have no idea that this man just turned 82! He is active, and stays busy traveling all over, doing small projects, caring for his home, mowing the lawn, and loving life!

What is his secret? Rex is one of our many patients that receives maintenance Chiropractic Care. When he first came into the office, he had bad leg pain and cramps that made it hard for him to function daily in his active lifestyle. It turns out that he actually had 3 vertebra out of alignment, which were corrected during his treatment.

Rex is able to do more than most people half of his age, and wants to maintain this great energy in his life for as long as possible, which is why he is dedicated to caring for his spine and Nervous System. Thank you for letting us share your story Rex! – Practice Member since 2013


Lori Simmons and daughter, Katie


“My headaches are controlled with chiropractic adjustments.  I have learned to be healthier.  Both of my children have grown up with chiropractic care.  My son’s severe migraine headaches were managed so he could enjoy athletics and my daughter is able to manage a slight curve in her spine.”  -Lori Simmons, Practice Member since 2001



“I was diagnosed with asthma at age 13.  Twenty-seven years later, I was told by my allergist I no longer need to take my asthma medication.  I attribute all of this to my newfound love of the chiropractor.  Since coming for adjustments, I no longer have constant headaches or the need to be on asthma medication.”  –Mary Kellenberger-Warax, Practice Member since 2011


Don Nagle

“The quality of my life has increased greatly with chiropractic care at Bergen Family Chiropractic.  I am in my mid-80s and I need no help with walking, which is in part due to my weekly adjustments.  I strongly recommend regular chiropractic care to help maintain a healthy body.”  – Don Nagle, Practice Member since 2003

“When I first walked into Bergen Family Chiropractic I could hardly walk.  I had a bad experience at another chiropractor’s office and was thinking about being done with chiropractic care completely.  I’m so glad that I didn’t do that!  A few weeks later and I have improved incredibly!  Thank you.”  –John Keller, Practice Member since 2012
