For 49 years I had a slipped disc problem (spondylolisthesis) that I acquired playing high school soccer for four years. About every three years I suffered severe back pain attacks and was incapable of doing anything at all. For all sakes and purposes I was temporarily immobilized not being able to walk, sit, work, drive a car, etc. These attacks would last for about two weeks.
Finally at the age of 66 I suffered a severe attack that twisted my spine. I had to walk slowly with a sideways limp and now the pain was chronic and it wouldn't go away. My standard treatment of NSAIDs/heating pad/TENS unit did not work effectively. When your back goes out, your life is destroyed. I thought my life as I knew it was over. I thought I would to be crippled for the rest of my life and would have to rely on canes and wheelchairs. No more work, no more vacations, no more hobbies, just useless boredom, useless surgery and pain killers.
Then a good friend suggested Dr. Jacques' chiropractic services to me. I had never been to a chiropractor before. I had no idea what was involved, but I certainly did not want to go the drug-wheelchair-surgery route! That is the route to absolute personal depression and decrepitude !
With xrays I was diagnosed with a twisted lower spine, straight neck when looking from a side view, also a bent neck when looking straight on, uneven hips, distorted hips, bent sacrum and legs of two different lengths ! I believe these came about from a combination of athletic injuries and over exertion in non-athletic physical activity for decades.
After only a few weeks of 3 adjustments per week I gradually saw good results. Not only was I pain free but I also felt substantially better in my overall health! By that I mean, I had more energy, slept better, had better speed in what I do, better mobility in everything I do, more freedom of movement that I have never felt before. It was like I turned 16 not 66. I am an avid walker and I could not believe the agility and speed of my walk. It felt like my joints were lubricated. I also walk more erect now and it feels good to sit up straight all the time. No more slouching! My entire spine is ten times better in its correct position and have better circulation.
Just a few weeks of chiropractic care and I feel I have not only completely reversed my problems but also gotten younger and reached a higher plateau of health!! I am in genuinely better health !! I should have done this decades ago. Dr. Jacques has saved my life and made it even better !

"My Experience at Dynamic Chiropractic Centers with Dr. Jacques"
I was recovering from knee replacement surgery at my daughter's home in Rochester, Mi. My home town is in the Canton area, but surgery was at Crittenton Hospital in Rochester, literally walking distance from my daughter's home. I was three weeks into physical therapy for a total knee replacement, when I began to suffer from intense pain in the back of my neck, radiating to my left shoulder, down my left arm into my elbow and wrist. This pain was so severe, my recovery from knee replacement was pushed to the back burner, as the neck pain consumed me. I was reluctant to see a chiropractor, but was desperate for relief and decided to give it a try. In just 4 short weeks improvement and relief were well evident, and I started to feel like myself again. Dr. Jacques explained everything to me me, from where my problem originates, to how adjustments are the key to feeling well again. I have a fear of having my neck cracked, but Dr. Jacques helped to relieve my fears, explained the reason for needing this particular treatment due to the area of my neck involved, and worked his magic, neck cracking and all! As my physical therapy comes to an end in Rochester, I will be going home to the Canton area. I have a chiropractor in my area that comes highly recommended, and Dr. Jacques was more than happy to share my records / information and ex rays with the chiropractor in Livonia, making treatment much more convenient for me, being so much closer to home. I will see the chiropractic facility in Livonia regularly, but when in the Rochester area visiting my daughter, I know I can stop in and Dr. Jacques will be happy to see me. Thank you Dr. Jacques, for helping me feel like myself again!
NY Giants Super Bowl XLVI Champion, Greg Jones told us “Chiropractic care allows my body to continually endure repeated hits with very little effect on function and has allowed me the ability to recover faster.” After receiving just a few chiropractic treatments from Dr. Jacques, Greg now realizes how important maintaining the proper structure & alignment of your spine is to optimal performance. Greg states, “After starting chiropractic care, I’ve noticed decreased stress, greater mobility and overall greater feeling of relaxation.” Greg and his beautiful wife, Mandy, who is also an NCAA athlete (MSU basketball), now receive regular chiropractic care along with massage therapy to continue to keep functioning properly and create an extraordinary quality of life. “Today, I am able to live almost completely pain free due to the care I receive from Dr. Jacques”.
My name is Lisa Grigg. I am 28 years old and have been dealing with chronic neck/lower back pain since I was 16 (as a result of a cross-country injury/car accident). When I was 22, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Over the years, my x-rays have had shown a continuous curvature in my both my neck and lower (lumbar) spine and revealed the rotation in my pelvis had worsened.
Over the last 6 years, I have seen multiple doctors, specialists, and chiropractors – and spent a great deal of time and money on various treatment programs, physical therapy, procedures, and medications – never seeing any results or feeling any relief. Before coming to Dynamic Chiropractic, I was about to give up hope. The constant muscle spasms and pain had become unbearable.
The first time I went to Dynamic Chiropractic was actually for a massage that I had purchased through Groupon. Their massage therapist, Karleen, is probably one of the best in Michigan! After my massage, she recommended that I meet with Dr. J for a brief consultation. Within only a few minutes into the examination, Dr. J had identified so many of the issues that the 15+ doctors I had seen over the last 12 years couldn’t even identify.
Dr. J. is incredible! He is extremely knowledgeable and thorough in his research, his diagnosis, his explanations, and his treatment.
I have been going to Dynamic Chiropractic for four months now, and although I am still dealing with back and neck pain (because of the severity of my issues), I definitely see progress with my therapy – which is more than I can say for any of the other chiropractors or specialists I have worked with in the past. I’ve noticed a difference in my alignment, I no longer get the frequent migraines I was having, and I have seen the positive effects my chiropractic care has had on my immune system.
Dr. J’s team - Kristy, John, and Andrea, are AMAZING! They are probably the friendliest and most helpful group of individuals that I have ever worked with in any doctor’s office. They really go above and beyond and truly care about the well-being of their patients!
They complete follow-up reports on the progress of my visits, and they make continuous modifications to their therapy treatments. They do questionnaires to learn more about my goals – not only for pain management/structural realignment, but for overall wellness. Dr. J has given me descriptive information on the vitamins and supplements I take and has provided me with research on how chiropractic care can impact your overall health.
I would highly recommend Dynamic Chiropractic to anyone seeking chiropractic care, and I look forward to continuing to work with Dr. J and his team!
I have been a patient of Dr. Jacques for a few months and I must say I'm extremely impressed with him and the amazing service he provides. I'm 31 and have always been extremely leery and rather apprehensive of chiropractic care which is why I have never been to a chiropractor in my entire life until Dr. J. I originally signed up to receive a massage through his office because it’s a covered benefit through my health insurance. I explained this to Dr. J and he said just to let him give me some background knowledge and understanding of what chiropractic care is all about. After a 45 minute session of being properly educated I began to have a better understanding of the whole body benefit of chiropractic care.
I also must mention that before I began receiving care from Dr. J, I would suffer from a strain in a muscle in my back. After only a few months of care from Dr. J, I have to say that I rarely ever have the pain anymore! Thanks Dr. J for improving my quality of life!
Dr. Jacques is one of those people who is truly committed to your well-being, listens to your concerns, and provides guidance and explanations as he treats any chiropractic conditions that you may have. I also judge the quality of staff that a chiropractor, dentist, or physician has working for them. In this case, I have not met a better or more friendly staff in any office. I'm very pleased with the care and hospitality that I receive. Highly recommended!

It was my freshman year of high school when everything becomes important. I had only been in school for a week when I got a migraine. I thought taking my medication would help and it did but, only to certain degree, it couldn't take the pain away. I had seen many doctors, my pediatrician, urgent care, and the pediatric neurologist, all with no relief. Finally the pain was so unbearable that I called my mom from school sobbing in pain. She came to pick me up and said she was taking me to the emergency room. She had no idea what to do anymore. They put me under observation. They kept giving me pain medicine and it was not working. By the time I left, I was on a level three narcotic just to help control the pain. They sent me home with steroids that were supposed to help but, no pain medicine. I was out of school for a week. I had to go back to school when I finished the steroid pack. The first day back was awful. I came home in tears because the pain was so unbearable. My Aunt Sheryl had told my mom to go see her chiropractor. My mom had a bad experience with a chiropractor so she didn't want to take me. That night though she called Dr. Jacques's office in tears trying to help me. For probably a month I walked with my head down, I had no skip in my step, not even a smile. Immediately following my first adjustment, it felt so good that I was laughing and it felt like I could breathe again. When Dr. Jacques finished he ran me through the range of motion test again and it felt like I could breathe again. Dr. Jacques said the other doctors had been treating my symptoms but not the cause of my pain. The difference he made that night was unbelievable. I walked out with my head up again, smiling and laughing again. I spoke with my Dad later that night; he couldn't believe how much better I was. I have continued to improve, after about two months of treatment, I was able to discontinue taking the daily medication I took to prevent my migraines. Now my whole family goes to Dynamic Chiropractic.

I have been a patient of Dr. Jacques for about 2 months now. I thought I'd give chiropractic another chance as I have not had good experiences in the past with other chiropractors, but boy am I glad I did! I came to him with great skepticism. I suffer from fibromyalgia, and had numbness and tingling in my leg along with edema in my ankle and foot. In this short period of time, through Dr. Jacques' treatment and massage therapy, my posture has improved, my edema and tingling has gone away and I am in better health and improved spirit. Thank you so much to everyone at the office, you are wonderful, caring, healing people!

About 12 years ago, I was in a car accident which resulted in severe whiplash. I did rehab therapy with no success. It was at that time I found my first chiropractor. I went to see him 3 times a week for several years with limited results. After about 5 years I moved to another Chiropractor, I would go in weekly with headaches and stiffness in my neck and when I was adjusted I walked out feeling no better then I walked in, finding myself taking Motrin daily. I regularly would walk in to his office unable to turn my neck and he would adjust and say I'll see you again tomorrow, with only time and Motrin healing my stiffness.
Last fall I decided to find another Chiropractor. I was so lucky to find Dr Jacques! Dr Jacques evaluation and ability to find the "spot" by just touching and poking my spine is amazing. The fact that he has the skills to identify my "areas" and cater each adjustment shows just how much passion he has for his work. I have walked in countless times with a headache and within minutes of my adjustment they are gone! In the fall I had experienced my first lower back issue where I was out of work for a few days, laying in bed immobile. Each day I went to see Dr. J I got a little better, being able to return to work in 3 days. Hands down he is the best Chiropractor I have seen and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for a Chiropractor.
After the birth of my child, I was suffering from lower and upper back pain with numbness radiating into my legs. And only after two months of adjustments numbness has gone, and my back doesn't hurt anymore.
Chiropractic keeps my son from having sinus and ear infections and his asthma problem is getting better. My son has suffered with asthma, chronic sinus and ear infections hat has had no resolution with traditional care (such as medications) and multiple trips to the pediatricians could not resolve my child's constipation issue.
I know that chiropractic works and I know I needed it and my child stays healthy with regular adjustments. My son, who is six years old, loves being adjusted. It's a pain free chiropractic experience! We want to say thank you Dr. Jacques for being our chiropractor!

I came to Dr. Jacques because I could not turn my head. I had to move my entire body to see in either direction. After my first visit I was able to move and get a great night's sleep. After my second visit I noticed that my allergies had lessened to a point where I only sneezed a few times a day instead of a few times a minute. After my third visit I went on a road trip. I noticed that I wasn't feeling motion sickness for the first time in many years. Dr. Jacques was the first doctor in 5 years to show me why I was having pain from my neck to my finger tips. I have been working with Dr. Jacques for over a month and my allergies continue to diminish. My sleep is deeper and more restful despite a big change in my work schedule, and my range of motion has improved. Dr. Jacques is genuine and wants to help people understand and learn about what is causing the problem and how to correct it, rather than addressing the symptom. He makes a connection with is patients and treats me as a friend would treat one another, calling me by my name, asking me with real sincerity how I am and listening to me intently, and supporting me! Dr. Jacques give me the information in a straight forward manner and recommend options for the plan of attack. I was looking for a quick fix to an immediate pain in the neck (literally) and I found answers to questions I had long given up on. I recommend giving Dr. Jacques a call; he has made a huge difference in my life.

I came to know Dr. Jacques about 11 years ago when he was working at another location. I was experiencing numbness and tingling in both feet which would get progressively worse as the day went on. In just a matter of 2 weeks a normal sensation returned and I was very pleased. Unfortunately, Dr. Jacques relocated to Florida and he was replaced by several chiropractors. None of them were able to maintain the level of care I received from Dr. Jacques. The tingling and numbness returned and over the past 10 years I have lived with the same tingling and numbness in both feet. I've seen other chiropractors, all to no avail. Going to bed each evening by 9 p.m. was my only relief. My prescribed medication to help me sleep. I was on the path to have back surgery as I felt it was my last resort. Then, just 3 weeks ago, I discovered that Dr. Jacques was again practicing in Rochester Hills at Dynamic Chiropratic. I made an appointment. After 4 visits my left foot has returned to normal and my right foot is quickly getting there. I am now able to watch a night baseball game in it's entirety. Having back surgery is no longer an option. This doctor is amazing! Now that I'm retired I look forward to many years of active living without discomfort and pain thanks to Dr. Jacques.

When I met Dr. Jacques and his staff 6 months ago, I couldn't sit on any kind of upholstered furniture. I read the newspaper standing at my kitchen island, read books lying on my back with my knees over a chair, watched TV lying on my side on my yoga mat. Two years ago I had over-exercised one day which ultimately resulted in a herniated disc, unsuccessful physical therapy, and a couple of epidural steroid injection, none of which provided lasting relief. Then a great friend sent me to Dynamic Chiropractic and good things began to happen. Dr. Jacques recently took the task of preparing me for a trip which involved hours traveling in a car, followed by a long flight and more time in the car. Then day's filled with much walking. I came through this trip beautifully and had a wonderful vacation with my family. It is a tribute to how Dr. Jacques and his staff treat not only the medical condition, but the whole person. I have not encountered this type of total caring anywhere, from the genuine greeting and attention of his staff to Dr. Jacques adjusting his care plan to the next thing I'm facing in my daily life. I wish this kind of care for anyone who hurts. My recommendation is unconditional.
