  • Dr. Ellie has restored not only my body, but she gave me back HOPE!

    On January 28th, 2022, while at the airport in Boston, I suddenly and with no apparent reason developed severe back pain. I boarded the plane and by the time I arrived in Florida, the pain has become so intense – radiating down my leg and into my ankle – I was unsure if I would be able to get up from my seat and exit the airport. I was diagnosed with sciatica after a visit to an urgent care facility and two emergency room visits with no relief after having a shot of steroids, two oral cycles, oxycodone, and two different muscle relaxers prescribed. We returned to Maine a month later. My husband and I had recently relocated to Maine and he luckily had established a relationship with Dr. Ellie. After another visit to the emergency room in Maine with no relief he suggested I try chiropractic care after being in pain for so long. On March 3rd, 2022, I met with Dr. Ellie and Shannon, this was the first day of getting my life back! We met in the morning, and I came in later that afternoon for my first adjustment. I was so unsure what to expect as I had never experienced anything like this in my life. But each visit brought some relief. After three months of care, I am BACK!! Dr. Ellie has restored not only my body, but she gave me back HOPE! I am back walking 4-6 miles everyday and even jogging! It has been such a pleasure to go into the office and be greeted by the warm and welcoming staff of Pam, Shannon, Cheryl, and Dr. Ellie and I truly cannot Thank them All enough for getting me Back To Living!!

  • I am no longer taking any medication!

    When I came to the office, I was experiencing a pain in my left sacroiliac joint. The pain was the result of a work injury in 2012. I went to a massage therapist who recommended I see Dr. Rolnick. I was tired of living with the pain. I stopped doing things because I was afraid of the pain - I didn’t want to retire and be in pain the rest of my life. I tried physical therapy, massage therapy and went to my PCP. The second time I went to my PCP I had to be brought to the ER in a wheelchair due to the pain I was experiencing. The pain had completely stopped me from living my life. After starting care with Dr. Rolnick, I was able to do things without fear of reinjuring myself. I noticed that sleep had improved, eating had improved, and I was no longer focused on the discomfort. I started to enjoy life again. After I started feeling better, I took my grandchildren to Funtown. I was able to go on the rides and I wasn’t sore the next day. I didn’t expect that after I started care I would be much more aware of my posture to the point where I would self-correct. I was also on an anti-depressant which I was able to let go of because of care. I am no longer taking any medication!

  • I was in so much pain I couldn’t function.

    I came to the office because I felt off balance. I had a consultation with Dr. Rolnick and due to the state of pain I was in, she gave me a treatment the first day. I was in so much pain I couldn’t function. I couldn’t lift my legs and walk comfortably up a set of stairs. Throughout the day I had to take multiple breaks, I was tired constantly. I found myself laying down often to relax, which is not like me. I couldn’t do my exercises anymore, so I stopped. I had a pelvic deficiency and different leg lengths. Since starting care I have regained my energy. I no longer have pain in my lower back, knees, or ankles. I can now sleep comfortably on my side. My posture has improved greatly, and I no longer have a hump in my back. I feel I’ve come a long way and I don’t feel as down and gloomy as I felt when I was living with all that pain. One of the first things I noticed after my first adjustment was that I was more aware of my posture and as a result I started breathing deeper. I am now able to get through my day with energy; I can lift my legs when walking up a set of stairs; and after living so long in pain, I am on my second week of no pain! I feel better!

  • Living without pain is such a gift – I will continue coming to schedule my appointments!

    At first I came to the office because I was having lower back and buttock pain. I couldn’t even get out of bed with a cane. I was having intense spasms and pain, I didn’t even want to go out. I would have to use heat and ice several times a day to get rid of the spasms I was having in my lower back. A friend had mentioned Dr. Rolnick and what a wonderful office she has. I had never tried this type of chiropractic so I decided to give it a chance. As soon as I started care I noticed I was mentally clearer, I felt happier and didn’t feel as much pain. My normal daily routines became easier again. It’s very hard for me to sit still as I am very active. Sitting still was not good for me. I didn’t expect that my energy level and clarity would increase with care. Living without pain is such a gift – I will continue coming to schedule my appointments!

  • I was living with the pain on the daily basis.

    I was having a back problem and my husband suggested I see a chiropractor, that’s when I decided to call Dr. Rolnick’ office. My sink is too high and anytime I did the dishes or moved around the kitchen I was in pain. I was living with the pain on the daily basis. I didn’t try anything before starting care at Dr. Ellie’; natural remedies are how I cure myself and I use food to heal my body. It took a while before I started to notice improvements in my pain. Now when I am in the kitchen my pain doesn’t bother me anymore. After starting care I don’t wake up in the middle of the night like I use to. I also notice that my posture is better.

  • I just couldn’t go out for a walk and the pain affected my golfing.

    Originally, I came in to the office because of lower back pain. I just couldn’t go out for a walk and the pain affected my golfing. After a few holes I would start to have lower back pain and pain down into my legs. I hadn’t tried anything before starting care with Dr. Ellie. At first, the improvements were tough to notice but as care progressed I felt much better and wasn’t in pain all the time anymore. Unexpectedly, after starting care, I noticed I had more energy!

  • I couldn’t sit, stand, or lay down for more than 10 minutes at a time.

    I was in a minor car accident, but according to my body it was catastrophic. I felt tightness in my back, but the pain was not severe. The next day I was sore, but I did my normal exercise routine to keep my muscles from stiffening up more. It was when I stopped moving I would be in severe pain - I couldn’t sit, stand, or lay down for more than 10 minutes at a time. I found sleeping exhausting as I was always a back sleeper. I lived 24 hours a day of changing positions for brief periods of time to avoid pain. My PCP advised me to stay home from work for four days, and my chiropractor put me on treatment plan of seeing him three days a week. I tried deep massage, needling, tape, scrapping, suction, cupping, Pilates, deep massage therapy, physical therapy, lidocaine patches and injections, Rolfing massage, wedges, lumbar cushions, other chiropractors and acupuncture – but none had any effect the pain always came back. I was depressed about my condition, and figured there was no cure, and I had it in my head that I would need surgery if the pain ever got too severe. Since seeing Dr. Rolnick I have seen huge changes in my body. Standing or lying down was my backs favorite positions but sitting was agony. I can now sit in a chair for long periods of time. I no longer have to sit or sleep with a heating pad. When walking the beach, I don’t feel like I have ankle weights on my feet any more, and my back is pain free as long as I remember how to stand or walk properly. My back doesn’t ache when I get out of work. I am lifting weights again two or three times a week. I haven’t started running, but I have hope. Dr. Rolnick has given me physical and emotional healing. I have the thrill of hope in my life, and I look forward to a brighter future!

  • I feel a lot better!

    When I started Chiropractic care here at Rolnick Chiropractic I felt 20 years older than I am – it was difficult for me to sit, get into my truck, ect. I felt old and everything was stiff, if I got out of a chair I felt 90 years older, I thought I would have to live that way forever. The problem I was having affected my entire life. I tried to go to the gym to work it out and loosen it up but it was intermittent relief and the pain would come back right away – especially when sitting in my office chair. I had to roll out of bed in the mornings and couldn’t get out of my bed comfortably. After starting care I noticed improvements in all aspects of my life: physically, mentally, emotionally, at work, recreationally, relationships, ect. It just made me happier – I wasn’t in pain all the time anymore. Honestly, I didn’t expect this at all – the whole picture. I thought I would have to live the rest of my life with tightness and stiffness. I have a ways to go but as far as where I started – I feel a lot better.

  • I feel different, I feel better and I feel like myself again!

    I came to the office because I couldn’t walk; my balance was completely off. My lower back was always in pain and I was at the point I was ready to give up – until I saw Dr. Rolnick’ ad in the courier; for some reason I felt compelled to try it. The ad really hit me – I wasn’t sure who to go to, I saw her ad and it was telling me to call. The affect my pain had on my life stifled my ability to walk and standing for long periods of time to cook, clean, ect. I had to sit down every couple of minutes. I could see myself with a walker and in a nursing home which was a thought I could not handle. I would take Tylenol and sit to watch T.V. – I couldn’t do anything else - I was giving up. Since starting care walking is getting better and now I am able to do what I have to do like vacuum or cook. When the pain came back Dr. Rolnick encouraged me not to get discouraged and I continued to get better. I didn’t expect Chiropractic to help the corneas in my eyes. I wasn’t able to read and once I started care I was able to see again and even read without my glasses. I am taking less medication since care and this weekend I vacuumed with no problem. I feel different, I feel better and I feel like myself again!

  • It has been an enjoyable experience all around!

    Originally I came into the office for back pain; I was listing heavily to one side. The pain affected my life so much that I couldn’t process in a normal way, work was difficult. As an essential worker through the pandemic I had to work through the pain. I was so happy to hear she could get me in as a new patient so quickly. I tried exercise and muscle work for my pain through the years and even tried Chiropractic years ago until my Chiropractor retired. I tried one other Chiropractic but it didn’t work out. Upon my first appointment I questioned the technology that Dr. Ellie was using, however, after being adjusted I left the building and walked to my car and immediately felt better. Since starting care I feel more open, I process differently, and I take my time. It has been an enjoyable experience all around!

  • Getting things back to the bodies innate ability to heal really helped!

    Originally I came into the office with headaches, very bad headaches. It was tough getting out of bed every morning – what’s the point if all I experience is pain all day? It affected my whole life. It was hard to concentrate and stay focused. I was quite reliant on Excedrin migraine and was seeing a doctor who referred me to Chiropractic. After starting care with Dr. Ellie, I noticed a complete turnaround mentally, concentration came back and I physically stopped taking medications for pain. My patience also improved. I think coming here has also helped with my sleeping patterns. Getting things back to the bodies innate ability to heal really helped!
