Chronic Pain

Chris came to Midwest Pain Solutions as a retired nurse that was unable to walk without a cane or a walker due to her extreme amounts of pain.

"Dr. Jackson is very knowledgeable and helped me understand my pain completely. After 3 months of treatment I was able to find relief. I would and have recommended Midwest Pain Solutions and Dr. Jackson to my friends and family. It doesn't hurt to do a no-cost consultation and see if they can help."

Ringing in Ears, Migraine & Back Pain

The effects of scoliosis as well as his desk job caused Alex to not only experience back pain but also sensations related to a pinched nerve. Through High Intensity Laser Therapy and chiropractic care, and more, Alex is able to manage the root causes of his pain and discomfort and has eradicated his migraines allowing Alex to be out-and-about during the day without worry about the onset of a migraine.

“When I walk in the door I don’t feel like just a client or a patient. I am welcomed by people that feel like family . . . every time I walk in here it’s that home feeling. I don’t feel like I’m walking into a place that is just wanting my money. . . . There’s care behind it, and to me, that is what I want when I come for any level of care.”

Amanda Litersky Testimonial

Nerve Pain

Amanda Litersky, a mom of two, had a spinal fusion procedure in 2020. However, shortly thereafter, she began experiencing nerve pain all over her body and she found it was difficult to walk and go on outings with the family. Injections and medication were making her feel worse and so her doctor suggested Midwest Pain Solutions. After a personalized treatment plan utilizing high Intensity Laser Therapy, though she was nervous about it, she felt looser and the treatment itself was non-invasive. More importantly, after two months of treatment, Amanda woke up and realized that her nerve pain was gone.

“I don’t want another surgery. . . . I would definitely recommend the clinic to other people — and I have! I would tell somebody who’s in that ‘I don’t know what to do to manage my pain situation’ to just go in and check it out. I highly doubt they won’t be able to help you.”

“I feel Midwest Pain Solutions is the best care for me…. Because they have lasers which have been life-changing for me. And this is just the most welcoming place. It feels like family. I absolutely recommend Midwest Pain Solutions. . . . They truly care about you.”
