Over the past 15 years, I have been seen countless times for recurring lower back pain. In my efforts to find relief, I have had MRIs, have seen numerous doctors and have gone through physical therapy, all to no avail. The next step for me was to undergo epidural steroid injections.

Before resorting to such an extreme measure, I decided to give chiropractic medicine a try and made an appointment with Dr. John Bartholet. Dr. John focused on not only relieving the pain I was in at the time, but also on teaching me how to reduce the frequency of recurrence. It has been six months since I began going to Body In Motion and because of the services I received and subsequently following methods Dr. John taught me, I have not had one episode of recurring back pain.

I am truly grateful to Dr. John for understanding what I was going through and for helping me find lasting relief from the pain I’d had for so many years. I would (and do), without reservation, recommend Dr. John every time I have the opportunity.

My name is Ali Huston, Iím a world champion powerlifter and national champion figure competitor. I have experienced several injuries throughout my athletic career requiring chiropractic care. Recently, Iíve had the pleasure of working with Dr. John Bartholet for these issues. He has not only been very professional and effective at solving any of my current issues, but has also been great at providing professional advice on injury prevention. John took the time to address all my concerns, made himself available around my schedule, and custom tailored my care using several newly developed modalities and skills. I would happily refer him to others for injury prevention, health maintenance, and chiropractic concerns.

After back surgery (laminectomy and spinal fusion of the lower four vertebrae) followed later by hip replacement surgery, I experienced severe lower back pain.† Physical therapy was recommended, but it failed to alleviate the pain.† Next pain therapy was recommended.† It did help, but significant pain remained.† Upon the recommendations of a friend, I went to Dr Bartholet.† Within a few months my pain was significantly reduced.† Dr. Bartholet is very knowledgeable about current research in his field, very professional and very caring.† Thus I heartily recommend him without reservation to anyone suffering from the kind of back pain I experienced.†

I came to Dr. John Bartholet Chiropractic Clinic stiff as a diving board, neck, back, shoulders, biceps and forearms sore and hurting. After his treatments my range of motion and soreness has greatly improved. Dr. Bartholet also elevated my nerve pain in my pelvic area with a laser cooling light a huge relief after 20 years...

I had been experiencing some pain in my left foot and went to my Dr. that had performed my most recent surgery. He is a foot specialist and took some X-rays and his diagnosis was that it was related to a stress fracture. No official diagnosis, but being a runner the general outcome is a stress fracture.

Every morning when I would wake up and stretch my foot or ankle I would get a sharp pain in the foot area. I told Dr. Bartholet about it and he isolated the area where the pain was. He used this GrastonTechnique which lasted about 2 minutes and not to tell a lie, it was rather excruitiating. He rubbed this instrument over the injured area and then iced it down. Al in all it was pretty cut and dry.

When I woke up this morning and went through my normal routine of stretching, I noticed that the pain wasn't there. I tried several different stretches thinking maybe I had done something different but to no avail. The pain was gone.

I went out and ran 2 miles and felt no discomfort at all. Whatever this treatment did, it worked. 8 hours later I still feel no discomfort.

Now from going to a stress fracture to not having any pain at all I feel there is something to be said to it.

I can keep you posted on the long term effect.

Three years ago I randomly developed a pinched nerve in my lower back. I visited my doctor, was referred to a Physical Therapist, who then referred me to another Physical Therapist, who referred me to a 3rd one. None could figure out any motion to set me in that didnít aggravate the situation. Over the 3 months of visits I was eventually told that I probably had some nerve damage and it would just take time to heal. Through the next 3 years my left leg consistently experienced muscle spasms in the calf, a tight hamstring, achiness and occasional pain in my lower back down through my leg. I was introduced to a Chiropractor through a Health Fair at work who suggested I visit with him. He immediately took x-rays and set forth a course of action, which included 45 visits and a prepaid savings plan, costing me roughly $2500 out of pocket. Wanting a second opinion I visited Dr. Bartholet. He took the time to ask me specifically what my ailments were and tried various paths to a solution. He not only treated me in office, but also sent me home with recommendations for stretches and pressure point relief. His belief was to reassess after each visit and set the course of treatment based on my progress, not on what my ailments were the first time I stepped in the office. After visiting Dr. Bartholet only 7 times in a course of 6 months my symptoms have completely diminished.

In my path to recovery I started to exercise daily, but my hamstring was still tight even after 3 months of activity and stretching. In my last visit Dr. Bartholet had me perform four repetitions of one stretching exercise while he applied pressure to one point in my leg. IT WAS AMAZING! The tightness completely disappeared and I was able to reach the floor. Itís been weeks now and I have had no reoccurrence of the problem. Three years of problems and finally someone was able to help.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Bartholet to anyone who might be seeking care from a Chiropractor. Not only is he highly qualified, but he also takes the time to listen to what youíre saying and decides on the best course of action based on what you are saying at each step of the process. Quite a difference from the 45-visit plan given out on day one from other Chiropractors!

I was suffering from severe wrist and arm pain and numbness due to carpal tunnel syndrome.   I was awakening on a nightly basis with pain, numbness and tingling in my fingers, wrist and arm.    I also experienced the same symptoms throughout the day.

Dr. Bartholet prescribed a 5 week course of treatment using light laser therapy.  The results have been astounding. We ended up doing a 6 week treatment, and I am now pain free and I no longer experience any numbness or tingling. 

I highly recommend Dr. Bartholet to any patient Ė he is extremely knowledgeable and ethical.


Over the last 50 years I have gone to many osteopaths and chiropractors ranging from very good to really horrible.  Now that I have found Dr. John I feel I have the very best.

He is a very pleasant, interesting young man and seems to keep an eye out for new information on chiropractic procedure.

When I go to Dr. John I am being treated for MY problem not just quickly run through so he can get on to the next patient.

He takes the time to understand the problem and treat it and also takes the time to explain what he is doing and why.

I feel much better and donít have to have adjustments as often since I have been going to him.

I recommend him almost every time someone mentions health problems.

Iíve been to my share of chiropractors but have never seen one as wonderful as Dr. John.  He really listens to your pain & knows exactly how to fix it.  He spends time with you & is not rushing you out the door for the next patient.  I like how he explains the procedures & how to make it so it wonít hurt again.

I highly recommend Dr. John to everyone as their chiropractor.

I was having terrible neck pain and unable to move my neck.  I called Dr. Bartholet

And he was able to see me that afternoon.  The treatment was great!  After the first treatment, I was able to move my neck at almost 100%.  He scheduled a follow up treatment a couple days later and my neck was at 100%.

ďI was in a serious car accident and suffered a spine injury that left me in a great deal of pain.  Dr. John took great care in diagnosing my condition and working a treatment program that was both medically sound and conservative regarding adjustments.  Even my Physical Therapist was impressed with the program he set me up on and that is usually not the case between traditional medical professionals and chiropractors.  His professionalism as well as his willingness to treat me not in accordance with what his practice needed for income but, according to my actual needs, has left me with nothing but great things to say about this impressive chiropractor.Ē

ďJohn, thank you for the personal attention related to helping me with the discomfort in my jaw.  I appreciated your patience and thoroughness.  Itís too bad you canít stay in Kansas City and set up practice.  You would be a valuable asset to healing.

I wish you the very best in your new venture and know that you will continue to care for future patients as well as you did me.  Itís just part of you makeup.Ē

God Bless
