I was in an off-roading accident during the summer of 1988 that caused some major damage to my neck.  I went to doctors, specialists, and chiropractors for approximately 9 months and nothing seemed to help the condition.  Over the last twenty years I have learned how to deal with the pain and stopped with any treatments.  Anyhow, I met Dr. Krohse at Aspen Athletic and my wife encouraged me to go see him.  Right away I noticed improved range of movement after my first few initial treatments with Dr. Krohse.  I have also learned that I do not need to live with the pain.  I am not 100% pain free but I do feel "normal" again.  Thank you Dr. Krohse!!

(To someone considering trying chiropractic care with Dr. Krohse I'd say) Please consider seeing Dr. Krohse as he is an excellent chiropractor and a nice young man!  Dr. Krohse turned me from a skeptic to a believer!

I had been having neck and shoulder pain for 2-3 years without any medical treatment.  This was affecting my sleep and my work.  Within 1-2 visits with Dr. Krohse my pain was subsiding and now 1-2 months into treatment I’m sleeping better than I have in years and my pain is gone.

I would recommend chiropractic treatment to anyone.  From minor aches and pains to severe pain, chiropractic treatment can alleviate your symptoms.

Dr. David Krohse,

I want you to know that I appreciate very much the outstanding results achieved within the short period of time since I've been a patient of yours.  I would like to share my positive experience with others who may also be suffering as I was. 

I came to see Dr. David Krohse specifically with hopes of getting some relief from a pinched nerve in my neck.  I had been experiencing numbness and tingling in my right arm, hand and fingers for several months.  After a few visits and discussions about some other existing symptoms (lower back, hip, knee and ankle pain), Dr. Krohse thought we should scan my feet.  Well, to my surprise we discovered that I have flat feet!  Dr. Krohse then went on to explain how I might benefit from custom orthotics.  I placed my order and within less than a week I was wearing my new custom orthotics.  

I have been wearing these now for about six weeks or so and my hip, knee and ankle pain is pretty much gone and my lower back pain has been significantly reduced.  I feel much better and I look forward to mowing the lawn, hiking the trails and playing golf, confident that I am not going to suffer the painful ramifications experienced in the past. Oh, the issue of numbness and tingling caused by the pinched nerve are now totally gone. Thank you Dr. Krohse.

My granddaughter recommended that I see Dr. Krohse. I was in a car accident on

June 6th, and had severe headache and neck pain. After being treated by Dr. Krohse, my headaches are gone. I have always had headaches. They are better than they have ever been. I am very satisfied with Dr. Krohse. I would recommend him to our friends.
My husband also came to Dr. Krohse as he has back trouble. In two or three visits he was doing fine and continues to do so.

I met David Krohse on a bicycle ride on Orcas Island on what turned out to be a very cold and eventually very wet spring day. David and my husband and I struck up a friendship and after our next meeting I set up an appointment to see David professionally.

It had been nearly 30 years since I was injured from a bicycle accident. I had been experiencing discomfort in my lower back and a limited range of movement of my neck. I set up an appointment, and after x-rays and examination, David set me up with a series of appointments designed to relieve these symptoms.
The appointments were fairly brief and happily pain free…and I enjoyed always a pleasant conversation with David. In a short time I was experiencing less discomfort and free movement of my neck, so I feel the treatments were worth every bit of time and money.

My biggest surprise came after my first or second visit. I had a breakthrough at my Yoga class…I was able to hold a balance position that had been difficult for me, and soon after was able to do the “bird” pose, which at age 60, I did not expect to achieve!

If someone is considering chiropractic care with Dr. Krohse, I would encourage them to do so without hesitation! David is both a compassionate and skilled diagnostician/practitioner.

At age 70, I was losing the range of motion in my neck due to arthritis; suffered frequently from lower back pain; and experienced sore spots in my upper back, shoulder and neck muscles due to stress. Thanks to Dr. David Krohse's excellent chiropractic treatments, I am now relatively pain free. I have chosen monthly maintenance treatments as this seems to keep my body in better working condition.

Through manipulation of my neck, I now have 2 to 3 times the range of motion in my neck. Spinal adjustment keeps my lower back relatively pain free. Vibration massage of my upper back releases the stress and thus eliminates the pain in my shoulder and neck muscles.

Dr. Krohse is not only a very capable chiropractor, but very friendly and caring which makes your chiropractic care a pleasant experience. I recommend him for anyone needing help to maintain a quality lifestyle.

Thank you Dr. Krohse and best wishes in your new location.

Twenty-three years ago I was having periods of dizziness. My family doctor had me undergo a CAT scan, sent me to an ear, nose and throat doctor and even a psychologist! He was hoping they could find the reason for my problem. Since they weren't able to give me an answer, my father-in-law suggested I go see his chiropractor thinking, maybe he could find something. Sure enough! I discovered that my spine was out of alignment, and that one of my vertebra was causing me to experience the dizziness. I truly was so thankful to have an answer. After a series of adjustments my problem was gone. Chiropractic care has really changed my life. I consider it as important as my yearly medical exam, dental care etc.

Dr. Krohse was a joy to meet and be treated by. I loved his smiley face and friendly nature. He was always very gentle with my adjustments. I always felt at ease with his care! He always listened to me and truly was interested in me as a person, not just a patient. He was very knowledgeable and was the only chiropractor I've gone to that has ever recommended orthotics for my walking shoes. They have really helped with back and knee pain. I will miss him, but send him to Iowa with my thanks and well wishes knowing there are some lucky people waiting to be his new patients.

Dr Krohse is a gentle chiropractor who listens to his patients. He was especially good with me, a nervous patient. I was concerned with being hurt by chiropractic care, as this had been a problem once before. However, Dr. Krohse was very gentle.

I first went to Dr. Krohse after feeling a tingling in my finger. My first visit consisted of the typical get to know you and figure out what the problem was. He then proceeded to set me up with 3 appointments for the first week and then 2 the next couple of weeks there after. In the short time that he saw me, he took the tingling away and straightened my back out. I was 100% satisfied with the results in which Dr. Krohse helped me with.

If you're considering Dr. Krohse to become your chiropractor, I would strongly urge you to go forth in his care. Not only is he a great chiropractor, he's a caring man. To me Dr. Krohse is one of the best chiropractors I've been to.

I cannot say “Thank You” often enough to Dr. David Krohse, nor truly convey to him how much I will miss him. He is the BEST!

I work in a very stressful position as an Escrow Closer causing my neck, shoulders and back to feel like a vise is attached. I met Dr. Krohse through a networking group (BNI) earlier this year. In July my pain and stiffness was at a point that I was unable to sleep and every tiny movement was excruciating. I spoke with Dr. Krohse and I began treatment. For the first time in years, after a few treatments, I am able to turn my head completely from side to side; walk without pain; and I cannot remember when the strength in my legs and arms has been better.

I am also subject to acid reflux and through his treatment, I am now able to eat foods that have been forbidden to me for a number of years.

I am so grateful that he was in practice in my community; and, wish him the most success with his new practice in your community. I envy you!

Dear Dr. Krohse,

As a senior-year elementary education student and now a fourth grade teacher I have had a lot of stress in my life. This stress seems to pile up in my lower neck and upper back and shoulders. At the time, I found the chiropractic treatments you gave me absolutely amazing at instantly reducing the tension in my lower neck and upper back. I have to admit though, I was frustrated at how quickly the problem tension would return.

I am so thankful you incorporated ART into your, “bag of tricks.” Since I have been getting both adjustments and ART, I find that my neck and upper back feel great for so much longer.

Now I hear that you are leaving the area. Though I'm definitely disappointed, I do wish the best for you. You'll have many patients who will greatly appreciate you in Iowa.

Thanks Again!
