Dr. Essen is the Best! She truly cares about the well being of her patients, and gives you one on one care when you come in. I had a gruesome knee injury and that knee was repaired (torn ACL) in Sept. 2006. However by October of '07 I still had pain, and a small amount of swelling. I had read a book about football great Bill Romanowski that summer, and how he had used acupuncture to remedy pain throughout his 17 yr. career. So that's when I decided to call Dr. Essen. (the blue awning along Manchester next to the Sprint Store) Within one treatment I felt better, and after 4 my pain was gone. Since then I've had my back adjusted and other aches and pains worked on.
Dr. Essen is always ahead of the curve because she has cutting edge treatments, and care. No need to call anyone else she's the best! Mike D.
After nearly 2 years of expensive, extensive and unsuccessful treatments by various "specialists" for an old, bad neck surgery and ongoing degenerative disc disease with constant, debilitating pain and bulging discs.....
DR. JOAN ESSEN has helped me become almost pain-free in less than 2 weeks! My only regret is not going to her in the first place 2 years ago (and several thousand dollars later). The vast knowledge, expertise and latest techniques that "DR. Essen" continuously offers me has restored my hope to live my life as normal (and painlessly) as possible and I am deeply indebted to her for that. Besides her kind heart and positive bedside manner, she works WITH me to help me continue healing by offering her wise advice & suggestions on maintaining our progress with my disease. I highly recommend DR. JOANIE ESSEN to anyone suffering with anything from minor acne to acute chronic pain. She has certainly helped ME tremendously!

Chest pains sent me to the ER early in 2009. Five hours and over $4,000 in charges for many expensive tests revealed a condition diagnosed as Costochondritis which is an inflammation of the cartilage surrounding the ribs and breastbone. Medication to reduce the inflammation was prescribed. A visit with Dr. Joan Essen revealed the real cause was of my pain was a rib out of place! Not that I'm recommending you ignore chest pains, but should you receive a diagnosis of Costochondritis, be sure to get an appointment with her ASAP. She also specializes in acupuncture, rehab therapies, nutrition; i.e., natural whole body healing and is one of the most caring people I've ever met.
I have had unbearable pain in my shoulders and lower back for as long as I can remember. I was never able to sleep on my back and was in constant pain. Since I began receiving treatment from Dr. Essen, my life has changed. I am now pain free, and I have Dr. Essen to thank. She was the first doctor who truly cared about me and did everything possible to alleviate my pain. I never thought that I could be pain-free; in fact, I thought of the pain as just part of my life. Dr. Essen has changed all of that. If you are suffering with pain, don't wait another day. Make an appointment with Dr. Essen.
Chiropractic care is so important for one's well-being. Dr. Essen, thank you for your concern and care as I have recovered from neck pain. The coordination of treatment methods has brought relief. I'm so glad I found you as I drove down Manchester!
Upon leaving work on a Friday morning, I was in a lot of pain from my lower back and quickly made an appointment with Dr. Essen, as she has treated me and my wife for several years with great success. After my treatment I was able to get in my car and drive home feeling 90% better than when I walked in. I have more treatments this coming week, and when I'm finished I will feel as good as "new". Thank you Dr. Essen for all your help for me and my wife. Floyd W.
Dear Joanie - thank you for using your healing touch to improve my quality of life almost 100%. I appreciate the time you spent taking care of me. Your "gift" allowed me to put the pieces together and finally find the key to good health. You've been a great blessing to me. Juile G.
Dr. Essen, this is long overdue. I want to thank you for going out of your way to meet me so I wouldn't be in pain on my vacation. As usual, you "fixed" me up and I felt great. Your coming in early for an unscheduled appointment is something special, as are you! Dawn W
Dear Dr. Essen - just wanted to let you know that I am so grateful for your help and that you are a special person. We (clients) are blessed to have crossed your path. Lynn L
