As an endurance athlete of many years, I constantly put my body through the ringer. Towards the peak of my triathlon season and a mere 8 weeks from my A-race, I began to develop achilles tendinitis. I sought out a doctor specializing in ART and I could not be more thrilled with the results. From the moment I stepped inside the office, I felt at home. The entire staff is friendly and welcoming and they clearly love their craft. The quality and care I received went beyond my expectations and I never once felt like "just another client". They not only listen, but they genuinely care. i absolutely could not have gotten to the start line of my half ironman without the help of the incredibly talented and knowledgable Dr. Aaron. He knew exactly how to approach my injuries and I knew I was in good hands. He broke out all the treatments for me -- ART, Graston, cold-laser, power tools, and more. Not gonna lie -- it's not pain-free, but it gets results!! He also tried multiple different taping approaches for me to test in my training to determine what would be best to use in my race. With Dr. Aaron's aggressive sessions coupled with Daniel's massage expertise (the man's a healer!), I'm happy to say that I not only showed up up to the starting line (a victory in itself), but I ended up with a personal record! I owe it all to Vanderhoof Sports and Wellness Institute and I encourage anyone -- no matter your ailment -- to give them a visit. You won't be disappointed.

I just moved from Colorado and carry with me severe pain and stiffness from an old military injury to my neck. The move left me really inflamed and in a lot of pain. After only two sessions, Dr Vanderhoof got me feeling normal again and my range of motion is returned to normal. He is a top quality chiro. The other thing I love about Dr. Vanderhoof is that it is patient focused. I have never felt rushed to get through the insurance mandated health care assembly line at this office. I get treated like a person every time and they take the time they need to see where I am at. I recommend this office to anyone looking for an adjustment

Dr. Vanderhoof is fantastic. He is attentive, responsive, and cares that I leave feeling better than when I came in. His staff does an excellent job at making feel comfortable and welcomed! He does amazing work and has really relieved my back pain. I don't know what I would have done without his work.

I first walked into his office using a cane- now I workout, I can walk on my own, my back pain is gone. I still use him for training injuries and see his team of practitioners to maintain my body's stability. He was a miracle worker. One year I had Spondy and went undigosed. After I saw Dr Aaron for three weeks I was working out in the gym, swimming laps with full mobility. He gave me my life back and I trust him- after my last chiro did this to my back and that year I spent in pain- I can say I fully trust his knowledge and expertise in manipulation, muscle movment. His team approach is great! He has deep tissue body masuse, a personal trainer to help with PT. His team approach is what works. It's Dr.Vanderhoof who knows exactly what to do from a large array of techeniques like cupping from chinese medicine. He's the best one I've been to since my ballet days of chiropractic care for years. Best one of them all.

Whether you're looking for injury recovery, or just a minor adjustment, Dr. Aaron is one of the best in the business! Without doubt, he is the most talented chiropractic practitioner that I've worked with. I think that the major difference is that Dr. Aaron wants to see results in his clients as much as you want to see the results. He is extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented, and with him, you'll get the individualized care that you want and need. I'm a physical therapist, massage therapist, and certified athletic trainer - I'm well versed in the health, aches/pains of the human body, and the various modalities to fix them - and Dr. Aaron is my first call. If you want someone that is professional and committed to helping you achieve your health goals, Dr. Aaron will listen and work with you so that you can achieve feeling 150%.

Aaron has been instrumental in my rehab since a car accident in Dec 09. I had never received chiropractic care before, so I definitely had hesitation in going. Aaron is amazing at explaining everything he is going to do and why it is important. This made me much more at ease through my treatments. Additionally, he provides great knowledge about holistic medicines and approaches vs. old school medicine. Through this process, Aaron has worked with me as my lower back pain was progressively getting worse. He scheduled me for an MRI which outlined an issue that Aaron would not be able to resolve. Aaron has been working with me to find the right doctor to help with my issue - and provides treatment for me to help alleviate the pain while I struggle through numerous tests and waiting to get into the specialist! I am also able to look to Aaron to help with the treatment options recommended by other doctor's to ensure I am on the right track. Aaron is an extremely knowledgeable, personable and is a really a great doctor!!!! I give him the highest rank possible and thank you for all you do!!!!
