Yours in Health
Dr. Micael Carreira and Dr. Nancy Salgueiro
I was having really serious headaches for a few months, and they were starting to affect my everyday life. I went to my doctor and he sent me to every kind of specialist possible – neurologist, opthamologist, and I even had x-rays and a CT scan done. On top of that, these specialists were prescribing me tons of pain killers, and NOTHING was helping! I remembered that I had heard that chiropractic can really help with headaches, and so I made myself an appointment. After my first few weeks of adjustments, my headaches completely disappeared, and since then I haven’t had any headaches nearly as severe, and also don’t need the pain killers they were prescribing to me from before. Chiropractic has definitely changed my quality of life!
We first started care for the girls because we heard chiropractic care helps reduce or eliminate asthma. Our girls are aged 6 and 7 years old and have had “cough-variant asthma” since the age of 3 or 4 years old. I don’t know if it is just a coincidence, but I think their care helps. After 9-10 months of chiropractic adjustments and one full cold/flu season behind us, the girls have never been so healthy! We haven’t needed any antibiotics since beginning of treatment. Our oldest has not used her puffers (Flovent or Ventolin) since the end of spring 2008, and our youngest uses a minimal dose of Flovent because she experiences some coughing (no “serious event” as before) this fall. Thank you!

I could not walk
I began chiropractic care after I had a long day at the park, running and jumping with my kids and I could not walk the next day. I came to see the doctor and started treatment right away. It has been over 4 months and I feel great! Now, my wife and son have started care, and soon my baby girl will, too, because I can see the benefits of chiropractic care.
Peace. Love. – O.E.
Knee, shoulder, and neck injuries
I began chiropractic care after having knee, shoulder, and neck injuries that were not resolved after a long period of time with physiotherapy treatments. My wife urged me to try chiropractic to see if I would have any changes. She was right (again!). After a few months of care, my knee pain had disappeared and my shoulder and neck range of motion were improving. I feel better than I have felt in a long time and I know if I continue with chiropractic care, I will continue to feel great. Marketplace Family Chiropractic Centre is great, the staff and atmosphere are wonderful, and after a long day at work it is always nice to come here and see all of the smiling faces of the staff and patients.
Keep up the good work!
Severe upper back and neck pain
The reason I began chiropractic care was because I had severe upper back and neck pain due to working on a computer all day. I’ve had this problem for as long as I’ve worked in front of a computer (approximately 10 years plus). The pain would be constant and affected my home life greatly as I was not able to do all of the things I would normally do. Now, I am able to do everything I used to do and I am so thankful for that! The office atmosphere is very comfortable and sophisticated looking, and very clean. The staff is friendly at all times, always with a smile on their faces and willing to help whenever an appointment is needed. A very recommended business!
Trauma in my lower back
I started care due to a trauma in my lower back. I was in an extreme amount of pain and had known about my condition prior to the trauma setting it off. At first, I only wanted to be pain-free, but after thoughtful explanation, I committed to longer term care. Their goal of promoting overall health is refreshing and after 2 months of care, I am seeing improvements not only with my back pain, but my overall health.
Sheer pain in my neck and lower skull
After a few months of sheer pain in my neck and lower skull, I sought help at smaller intervals. I also found an excellent massage therapist that treated trigger points. I strongly believe that the combination of care helped my neck. The doctor did something one morning that had me smiliing all day long: I was finally able to turn my head from one side to the other without having to turn my torso with it! Pure joy!! Thank you for taking the time to listen to your patient’s needs!
Headaches and leg pains
I came to see the chiropractor because I was getting lots of headaches and leg pains. Since I have been coming, I have had minimum pain and headaches. I am so glad that my step-mom told us about chiropractic. Thank you!
To be healthier
The reason I began chiropractic care is because my mom wanted me to be more healthier and so did I. I found that when I see the chiropractor that my shoulder is starting to feel much better because this is the best chiropractic care I have ever had, and the people there are so friendly and the kids area and waiting room are so calm- plus the treats they have are delicious and healthy! I would be happy to tell my family, friends, and people I know about this place and I will. Thanks for the great chiropractic care!
I began chiropractic care because my wife and children started getting care. Although I didn’t suffer from pain, I did have issues with posture. I have noticed improved posture and respiration. I am hoping to reduce dependency on daily drugs as well as improve seasonal allergies. I feel better overall health with my care plan, and with a vitamin program I feel that I have been able to cope with excessive travel and stress at work. The office environment is always pleasant and friendly. The doctors are very good and have a great way with their patients.
I came to Marketplace Family Chiropractic Centre with reservations. I did not think they could help since I was fit (or so I thought). I have found a few pains since and the doctor was able to fix that for me. My sciatic nerve doesn’t bother me anymore, either. I would recommend seeing either one of the chiropractors, because they are great and pleasant people. My daughter and I always learn something new with them at each visit. I just find it far to drive, but I manage to come anyway.
