Dr. Michelle Riegleman
Ear infections and Bedwetting: Bridgitte
Before coming to Dr. Riegleman, my daughter had numerous ear infections and chronic congestion. There was talk from her pediatrician about eventually putting tubes in her ears to help with the problem. Since our family has been getting regular adjustments, our daughter has not had to be on antibiotics at all for ear infections and her congestion had diminished. Our son has also benefited greatly from regular chiropractic care. He had a problem with bedwetting, but after some adjustments that stopped and he has not had to wear pull-ups to bed ever since. Our family has been so much less reliant on antibiotics and other medication since we've been getting regular chiropractic care.
Attention Deficit Concerns: Jennifer
My daughter has had many problems at school due to difficulty with focus and moodiness. She has gone through periods when she has been frustrated throughout the school year because she felt that she was not a "good" student. She was evaluated for Attention Deficit and the results were inconclusive. Along with her teacher, we tried several behavior plans to help her. Nothing seemed to be working. On the contrary, things were getting more frustrating for my daughter. Dr. Michelle started to adjust my daughter and make suggestions concerning nutrition and supplements-specifically about this issue. My husband and I noticed a difference right away. It was so effective that we began doing adjustments twice weekly to maintain the positive results. My daughter is thrilled with her success at school!!! Over time, we have been able to reduce the frequency of visits and still maintain her progress. Our family owes a great deal to Dr. Michelle. Thanks!
Finally Help for My Knee Pain: Cheryl
Dr. Michelle is the best! I had never been seen by a chiropractor. Last June (2008) I had tried everything for a sore knee, even physical therapy. After many months, the physical therapists said they could not do anything more for me. Dr. Michelle reviewed my x-rays and said, "I can help you." What a relief! After a week, I knew I was on my way to healing. Dr. Michelle worked through the summer improving not only my knee but also my whole body. She improved body movement I had not realized I had lost. My job is working with students. I usually am sick at least once in the fall. This school year I have not even had a cold.
Just being in her building makes you feel comfortable and welcomed!
Muscle Strength Improved: Lee
Dr. Michelle, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful care you have provided for me and my family. I am amazed how chiropractic care has improved my health in so many ways.
I would like to share a quick story with you to explain what I mean. For several years I was a regular at the local gym. I worked out with a personal trainer 3 or 4 times a week. About a 1 1/2 years ago life got busy, I started a part time job and my work-outs at the gym got put on the back burner. A couple of weeks ago I decided it was time to get back on track. So I called my trainer and set up an appointment to start working out again. We met at the gym so she could do some tests and evaluate how much muscle strength had changed during the last year of inactivity.
We worked out on several pieces of equipment, she took lots of notes and then we sat down to talk. The first words out of her mouth were, "I know you haven't been working out at the gym, are you doing something different at home, new vitamins or anything else, because your back and core muscles are stronger than before." When I told her the only thing I'm doing different is I started seeing a chiropractor during the last year, she said that's it! She explained how she has seen several people whose muscle strength improved when they started seeing a chiropractor.
I learned a good lesson, chiropractic care, good nutrition, and exercise are a winning combination for good health. Thank you again, Dr. Michelle, for keeping my body healthy when I didn't have the time!!!!
My entire family has been helped: Lyndsey
My name is Lyndsey, I have known Dr. Michelle Riegleman for about 10 years now. My journey started while working at a different location with her in Waukesha when she first started in practice. I have been privileged to see her grow in many different ways.
Dr. Riegleman was in the delivery roon by my side as I gave birth to my first child 6 1/2 years ago. Throughout the years, Dr. Riegleman has helped me with pregnancies, asthma, allergies, common colds, and pretty much everything else. She has treated my three children since birth, literally, she made special trips to the hospital to check my babies right away. My kids are not immunized thanks to all the knowledge and literature I was able to get and she was right there to answer my every question. None of my kids, the oldest being 6 1/2, has every been on an antibiotic. Dr. Riegleman has seen them for every issue from the common cold, inflamed ears, teething, constipation, headaches, viral infections, and lets not forget their overall attitudes towards life. Most kids cry when they go to the doctor, mine well lets say they run into her office ready to fill her in on all the things that have happened since they last saw her. Dr. Riegleman has endless knowledge and suggestions not only with chiropractic, but nutrition as well. The fish oil, multi-vitamins, vitamin C, magnesium, candibactin, elderberry syrup, all of it has just been amazing and so important for my family.
Although Dr. Riegleman has since left the Waukesha area and is now located in Delafield, we still drive out to get treatment from her whenever possible. Her staff is always helpful and flexible with appointment times. One thing I truly miss is seeing her smiling face every morning and knowing it was sincere, Dr. Riegleman has very unique charisma.
If you take anything away from this testimonial it should be that....Dr. Riegleman is one of the most sincere, caring, and dedicated person, friend, mother, and doctor that you will ever meet. These wonderful qualities is exactly why she is so good at what she does.
"I made it through the winter": Tom
Every winter I would get either an ear infection (antibiotics), bronchitis (antibiotics), a severe head cold, or some combination thereof - guaranteed. This winter, I have had none of the above.
I have been seeing Dr. Michelle for treatments regularly for the past year. Additionally, a knee problem I had been putting up with for months is gone, and the range of motion in turning my head left or right due to a neck problem I've had for years (a potential safety issue while driving) is considerably better.
CHIROPRACTIC WORKS FOR ME!!
Delafield Chiropractic has not only improved my day to day life, but has also allowed me to stay on the football field and increase my performance. The Strain of the football season can be hard to handle, but Chiropractic care allows me to stay at the top of my game from week to week. It also has increased my overall health, from headaches to nasal pressure. Overall, I do not know how I could stop Chiropractic care now, as it has become such a great part of my life.
What has pleased me most about Chiropractic care, is the full body care I have received at Delafield Chiropractic. From my shoulders to my feet, I have had treatments done that have saved me the time and money of physical therapy.
I believe that if you are serious athlete or competitor of any kind who wants to maintain peak performance, then you need to get yourself enrolled in Chiropractic care.
"My low back pain was interfering with my life": Lily, R.N.
1. How has the care you've received at Delafield Chiropractic improved your life? "I used to have a lot of pain in my lower back, so much that it was interfering with my quality of life. Since I started getting regular adjustments, my back pain has decreased drastically! I am now able to do the things I love without worrying about my pain getting in the way.
2. What has pleased you most in your course of treatment at our practice? "Dr. Baum is fantastic!! I have really enjoyed how she takes the time to focus on my overall health and well-being, not just my back pain. The rest of the staff at Delafield Chiropractic is also very kind and compassionate, and I enjoy going in for adjustments!"
3. Do you have any words of encouragement for others? "I would encourage everyone to just try it! I was a bit skeptical at first, but with time I began seeing results and it improved my quality of life! Most of all, I love how the adjustments work to decrease my pain without the use of medication."
" She is an excellent doctor!" - Barb
"I am extremely impressed with Dr. Jenifer Baum, and HIGHLY recommend her. She is very thorough, very knowledgeable, and very professional. I have tremendous confidence in her abilities and have already recommended her to several individuals. I also appreciate her herbal approach to medicine."
Dr. Michelle has changed our daughter's life!
At the age of 2, our daughter began complaining of discomfort, in the pelvic region, while sitting in her car seat. I brought her to her pediatrician who was unable to find anything visibly wrong. As the years went by, the discomfort she was feeling worsened and was present not only when sitting, but also while laying down. Over the next few years we were in and out of the Dr.'s office as well as the offices of pediatric gynecologist specialists at Children's Hospital in Milwaukee, all with no result.
By the age of 6, things had gotten so bad for my daughter that she began to talk about not wanting to live on earth anymore because of her condition (as a mother, this was beyond devastating to hear-absolutely devastating).
It was around this time we discovered that the condition my daughter has been dealing with is called PGAD, or Restless Genital Syndrome. PGAD is a condition of the nervous system similar to Restless Leg Syndrome. We also found that PGAD currently had little research and no absolute cure. We were told that patients diagnosed with PGAD are typically put on dopamine drugs and Opiods. In reading testimonies of other women suffering with PGAD, we found that many patients are told that what they are experiencing is "all in their head" and as a result, the condition is associated with a high suicide rate. This again, was absolutely devastating information especially in light of things our 6 year old was already saying.
With the new knowledge that our daughter's condition stemmed from the nervous system, we decided to try chiropractic care, which works not only with the nervous system, but the body as a whole. My Husband found Delafield Chiropractic and Dr. Michelle throughout a web search. Dr Michelle's background and experience in obstetrics, children and women's health care appealed to us and gave us hope. Dr. Michelle listened - really listened - to my daughter at our first visit. She asked many questions that my daughter hadn't been asked before and we left feeling like we had found someone (in addition to our wonderful pediatrician) who truly listened to her complaints with an interest in making a real difference.
After just 1 month of care with Dr. Michelle our daughter's symptoms had almost completely disappeared and now, after only a few months, her symptoms are completely gone. Not only does she no longer complain about any of her symptoms, but she shows not a single visible outward sign.
Dr. Michelle has been an absolute blessing to our family and has changed my daughter's days from being full of tears and what was truly hopelessness to days full of smiles and joy.
We have read that not every treatment works the same way for women suffering from PGAD and what works for some may not work for others, but chiropractic care IS a fantastic option and HAS worked for my daughter and because of her outcome, we wanted to share our experience.
