  • "Starting about 12 years ago when I was actively involved in teaching high school music performance groups in SD City Schools, I turned to Dr. Jeanne Ames for help with chronic low back pain and plantar fasciitis. Her prescribed course of treatment helped my situation quickly and I just continued to call in to her office for periodic pain maintenance and advice on my needed weight loss and pre-diabetic condition. Dr. Ames has been my preferred chiropractor because of her excellent care."
