Success Stories from All Over the Northwest

By the time I was seen at Lake Meridian in December, I could not function, live alone, drive, even signing in for my appointment was more than I could do. My daughters took turns on taking me for my appointments and taking care of me as I lived with them… My first few months of treatments I improved tremendously–we could see improvements each day. The panic attacks are gone, I am off the panic meds… There is such joy inside of me now.
~Mary H

Due to an active life style, I’ve had over 40 years of chronic neck and back issues. I have seen many chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, surgeons, & had acupuncture therapy. Some procedures have been successful to some degree, but none seem to have lasting value.

For my condition I found the most relief has come when the atlas is aligned correctly.

When I came to Lake Meridian Chiropractic, I was skeptical as I had been around the block, so to speak.

For the first time in my life the Doctors at LMC have managed to keep me in adjustment longer then anyone before! Dr. Saggau also has adjusted me for high blood pressure. She also suggested Biomega -3 fish oil. I now need half the dosage of medication for the blood pressure!

I also want to take the opportunity to commend the patient services team. From setting up appointments to financing, the ladies do an outstanding job and they are always courteous and helpful. They are an asset to the organization.

If you want to change your life for the better I highly recommend LAKE MERIDIAN CHIROPRACTIC.
~Ralph G.

I am very happy to write this success story. I am one of those people who didn’t believe in Chiropractic care and couldn’t see how their care could help the ill. Three (3) years ago I was standing in my kitchen and all of a sudden I fell to the floor. My head was so dizzy I couldn’t even walk. I was rushed to the hospital. The doctors gave me some pills and said I had a middle ear problem, for me to see an ear doctor and sent me home.

To make a long story short, the dizziness became too unbearable to live a normal life. I had to lay down most of the time and my daily activities came to a stop. I had to stop playing soccer. I had to stop my job. I put on about 40 lbs. and had no control over my body because I could hardly move around. After two (2) years of going to about 16 ear doctors and specialists, taking many many pills and having head surgery, the dizziness still returned. I was ready to give up hope when somebody asked me if I had seen a Chiropractor. I finally decided what the heck, what is one more doctor.

I started seeing Dr. Saggau in February of this year. After doing X-Rays, etc., she found the vertebrae in my neck was twisted, which caused the middle ear problem, which caused the dizziness. After only a couple treatments, I started feeling somewhat better. I started going to Dr. Saggau on a weekly basis and each week I felt much better. Now, four (4) months later, I am seeing Dr. Saggau twice a month. My dizziness is nearly gone. I am back to work. My activities have increased (even yard work). I still have weight to lose, but I can handle that now.

What can I say except: “I changed my mind, Chiropractic care is great and it works”. I am proof of it. I personally want to thank Dr. Saggau for her excellent care that I am getting because where would I be today if I hadn’t been referred to her. This is a miracle come true.
~Betty T.

After years of using doctors who all tried their best to correct my back, neck, and shoulder problems, I discovered Danene Saggau, DC, BCAO, who practices Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic medicine. My results have been amazing.
~Jerry G

I have had a lot of energy and my exercise has become easier. I have noticed my mom has had more energy and has been sick less this winter.
~Jay K

I no longer have pain when golfing!
~Lori F

My nine-month-old baby was having serious problems with colic. To my surprise, by that night his colic was relieved! I owe my sanity to her! Thanks so much!
~Nicole C

I move so much better and as a result of treatment, I have so much more energy. I feel great.

Because of my care at Lake Meridian I have less aches in my back.
~Josh V

Atlas Orthogonal is an interesting technique of healing.

~Audrey R

The realignment has eliminated headaches and helped reduce tension.
~Lisa C

Life is much better since my treatment at Lake Meridian Chiropractic. I have enjoyed the time of healing and thank God for everything he has done.

~Jeff R

I was thrilled when my jaw stopped popping immediately after the one adjustment and it has stayed that way! You never cease to amaze me Doc!
~C.C. S

My blood pressure has always been high and I have been taking blood pressure meds most of my life to control this condition. After around the 10th visit, my blood pressure has started to drop down.
~Wayne B

Bottom line is the Atlas Machine is awesome and the best part is it is totally painless.
~Bob V

Then along came Dr. Saggau and her wonderful treatment. Within a week my headaches had disappeared, along with my dizziness.
~Tenley N

I am not afraid anymore because it doesn’t hurt!
~Brandon C

Because of my chiropractic care with Lake Meridian my pain has been reduced and movement has improved. I am impressed with how well the atlas machine works without the twisting and over-extension of the neck. Also impressive is the strength of the Dr’s hands and ability to detect body changes.
~Suzanne J

I had instant headache relief with the first adjustment. I was skeptical about coming to a chiropractor because I didn’t think chiropractic could help if many medical doctors couldn’t. I would recommend this type of chiropractic to other skeptics!
~Cindy B

Now, just two months later, the pain and terrible headaches that I have lived with for a whole year are gone! Now I fall right asleep, and sleep the whole night through! I am so glad I started treatment with Dr. Saggau; I finally feel back to normal! Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic really works!
~Barbara J

Danene, you are one of the best Atlas Orthogonal doctors in the world and I am proud of you. We must teach the public the benefits of having their atlas orthogonal.
~Dr. Roy Sweat

Please let me tell you how you’ve helped me: the numbness in my left foot has disappeared; I can feed my baby with a spoon now and pay bills; I have stopped taking the anti-inflammatory medicine I’ve been on for years; as a result of being able to exercise, I’ve started to finally lose the weight I’ve struggled with for so many years; and, most importantly, I’M A HAPPIER PERSON.
~Pamela S

On the second visit she started with the manipulations and within minutes I was starting to feel better. The headache went away almost immediately and the neck pain started to diminish. After several visits I asked her about some foot pain I had been having for about one-and-a-half years. She said, “Let’s have a look.” She then proceeded to adjust my foot and within the week the pain in my foot was gone and I am walking again normally without ANY pain.
~Dale P

I have Osteoporosis in my back and she has really helped me a lot. I can walk better and straighter, and I am so happy and grateful to Dr. Saggau for that. What she did for my arm and shoulder was a miracle.
~Ellen

My mother had a positive experience here and the care she received relieved her pinched nerves.
~Darren B

I can’t adequately express my joy and relief at being able to sleep without pain for the first time in over a year. I’m pain free and even sex is more fun.
~Rachel G

After only four adjustments, I was able to stand straight again, and in less than a week’s time, I was back to working!
~Fabian M

My son said you were the only one who had ever given him relief. So I took him at his word – and found relief.
~Winogene R

I was impressed to have Dr. Saggau listen to my concerns and her wanting to work together on my improvement, discussing various alternatives. She didn’t push one treatment down my throat like some doctors seem to do.
~Philip H

Two months ago I felt like I was becoming an old man. Now I feel more like a younger fit man – without limitations.
~Ron U

I never imagined that having my spine out of alignment could affect so many aspects of my life.
~Jeri T

Thank you for all the hard work. It is appreciated.
~Lana S

I feel 100%…almost no pain now.
~Kevin M

I’ve been battling thyroid disease for 2 years – last week was the first time that my levels were perfect in two years. Dr. Saggau gave me more hope in 1 visit than I have felt in the last two years of medical struggle.
~Mary Jane F

I’ve experienced freedom from pain! The results are wonderful – almost miraculous! The staff is very caring, attentive and professional – I love the treatment and the service I’ve received. I’d recommend them to everyone!
~Brenda H

I’ve gone from being in a lot of pain to being pretty much pain free. I believe the techniques used differently have helped me, and will help others also.
~John R

Thank you so very much for your extraordinary care. My neck and back have never felt better and it’s to you and your therapy.
~Laurie W

I originally came to Lake Meridian Chiropractic to help cure my allergies and Atlas. Since coming to Lake Meridian Chiropractic I have felt much better. I have improved on my allergies and my back has been straightened out.
~Jessica B

I was willing to try anything. I had been a person who walked 4 miles a day and was now reduced to sitting after a short walk. I do not think I would be walking today if it were not for Dr. Saggau’s treatments and advice.
~Shirley D

I originally came to Lake Meridian Chiropractic because of sciatic and IT band pain in my left leg. I couldn’t sit at a restaurant to eat without having to stand up to alleviate the pain every few minutes. I was somewhat skeptical before coming to Lake Meridian Chiropractic. Because of my treatment at Lake Meridian Chiropractic, I can now make it through eating out without having to get up every ten minutes. I also just ran the Lake Chelan Marathon in 3:36, ten minutes better than my previous time before treatment. Even though I was sore afterwards, I had virtually no sciatic nerve pain.
~Tim A

I originally came to Lake Meridian Chiropractic because of constant pain, insomnia, inability to do everything I wanted to do physically. Since coming to Lake Meridian Chiropractic I generally am feeling better and have more energy, less pain, less insomnia and able to tolerate more physical activity.
~Becky P

I have had stomach problems for years due to acid reflux. It was pretty amazing that within 3 or 4 treatments, I was either able to sleep through the night or if I did wake up during the night, I was able to go right back to sleep without any burning in my stomach at all!
~Anne L

I have truly become more open-minded and gained a tremendous amount of respect for alternative, non-medical forms of health care. I am pleasantly surprised and grateful at how your adjustments cause no pain whatsoever and have a healing power on the entire body.
~Debbie C

I came to Lake Meridian Chiropractic to get back feeling in my left thigh that had become numb. I was also having dizzy spells and headaches. Now, my dizziness and headaches have decreased and I’ve gained more flexibility which has helped me to dance for my hula school.
~Teresa B

I can breathe easier, move around better, and no more headaches. I had also twisted my ankle and Dr. Saggau adjusted it. Never before have I twisted an ankle and hobbled in somewhere and leave walking out with no pain. This is amazing.
~Randall A

THANK YOU! You are a miracle worker! I felt like someone removed a ton from my shoulders. I am sleeping better and my mood has definitely improved – just ask my husband! I am so happy with your treatment that I am telling everyone about it.
~Carol C

Those chiropractors that crack your neck scare me! I definitely would recommend the gentle treatments of Atlas Orthogonal adjustments.
~Jeff C

Even if you don’t tell the doctor where it hurts that day, she’ll find it either with her hands or her “stun gun.”
~Katherine F

The ability to turn my neck has returned.
~Mary B

I didn’t have an appointment to see you, but somehow you were able to squeeze me into your booked morning for a much needed neck adjustment. Since you were willing to treat me right then and there I was able to work a full, productive day and more importantly, without pain.
~Paul T

Since coming to Lake Meridian Chiropractic I feel excellent. My headaches (with exception of tension-stress headaches) are gone. My posture is better and I feel better overall. Wish I had done this sooner!
~Lynn M

Since coming to Lake Meridian Chiropractic so far in one month I have had only one migraine compared to 10 a month. I am getting much better.
~Ann B

Since coming to Lake Meridian Chiropractic, I noticed that consistent care has relieved my headaches, lowered my breathing difficulties, and relieved my back pain. I don’t dread being adjusted today. No one is manhandling my neck or back. Lake Meridian Chiropractic’s techniques are comfortable and show results.
~Laurie T

I enjoy your TV program. I think it is very good. It shows you really care about your patients.

Having practical medicine for over 40 years I wholeheartedly endorse the Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic practice of Dr. Danene M. Saggau. I would strongly recommend Dr. Saggau for everyone with neck pain, back pain or headaches. In my medical opinion, she does the best Atlas Orthogonal work west of the Mississippi.

“Many Doctors don’t really understand the importance of the Atlas with fixing many health issues. This office does!! My coworkers wife was scheduled for exploratory brain surgery at the U of W. to determine the cause of her migraines. Thank goodness she got her Atlas adjusted and the migraines she had suffered for 6 years were gone within 2 weeks. She was able to cancel the brain surgery, and has been fine since!”

“Was this provider’s office easy to locate? Absolutely! It couldn’t have been easier! Do you feel that you could have received better service somewhere else? Definitely not; I received the best service ever! Were the staff members able to answer your questions? Yes, they were able to answer my questions. Would you recommend this chiropractor to others? I Already Have.”

“Not only do my appointments never get canceled last minute, they take time out of their day to send me reminder so I don’t forget. They are extremely reliable. I’ve already told my friends and family about the fantastic experience I had with Lake Meridian Chiropractic! Lake Meridian Chiropractic makes the extra effort to get to know their patients and find out what they need! They always remember me and make me feel very important! They are extremely accommodating with my busy schedule and they have stayed later to fit me in! Lake Meridian Chiropractic always has an immediate answer for me when I call with a question. They would never try to get me to make an appointment unless I really needed one.”

“I have been seeking chiropractic care for years… about 10. Dr. Heather Geigert is the best taht I have been to. She is thorough, punctual, and accurate. Dr. Geigert is great at educating me on how to promote spinal and well-being health. I would recommend her to any and everyone.”

“We’ve been using Lake Meridian Chiropractic for about 2 years. We are very pleased with their office. Everyone is always friendly and polite. They work by appointment, but also accept walk-ins. We’ve had to call many times to make changes to appointments, and they have always been very accommodating, working us in as close as possible to the day/time requested. The office is comfortable and the wait isn’t bad at all (not sure about walk-in’s, but by appointment we’ve never had to wait more than about 10-15 minutes over our scheduled time, on busy days. Usually we’re right on time or even early in to see the doc.) Atlas Orthogonal is unlike any chiropractic treatment I’ve ever seen, it’s much more gentle and effective. (No torquing or cracking involved!) I recommend them to anyone looking for quality care from friendly, caring doctors.”– Posted by Cheryl L. on CitySearch with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Lake Meridian Chiropractic

“I have been going to Dr. Saggau for about 10 years. She was recommended by my physician. I had been to chiropractors before but knew nothing about my atlas. When she adjusted that I was relieved of lifelong neck pain. I highly recommend Lake Meridian Chiropractic!”– Posted by Ann S. on CitySearch with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Lake Meridian Chiropractic

“My husband and son have been using Lake Meridian Chiropractic for about 2 years, now. We are very pleased with their office. Everyone is always friendly and polite. They work by appointment, but also accept walk-ins. We’ve had to call many times to make changes to appointments, and they have always been very accommodating, working us in as close as possible to the day/time requested. The office is comfortable and the wait isn’t bad at all (not sure about walk-in’s, but by appointment we’ve never had to wait more than about 10-15 minutes over our scheduled time, on busy days. Usually we’re right on time or even early in to see the doc.) My son was diagnosed with scoliosis when he was 3. We were told by the “experts” at Children’s Hospital that he would have to have “intervention” (meaning rods in his back or a brace 24/7 when he was around 5 yrs old.. that’s the best they could offer) On the suggestion of a friend, we took him to Dr. Saggau, who uses Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. He’s been receiving weekly treatments over these 2 years. The last visit to the “expert” at Childrens’ was in January. He was amazed at how well my son looked. There had been a little change for the better, instead of the expected large change for the worse. The treatments have kept his spine from getting worse, which is amazing considering the growth spurts he’s undergone. He’s now 7 years old and doing great. He doesn’t need a brace and NO RODS in his back! Atlas Orthogonal is unlike any chiropractic treatment I’ve ever seen, it’s much more gentle and effective. (No torquing or cracking involved!) Some of the chiropractors we “interviewed” (before allowing anyone to touch my child’s back) just plain scared me! I am so glad we found Dr. Saggau! My husband’s back and neck have benefited, as well. He hit the top of his head while coming up some stairs (there was an overhang and he stepped “up” full-force into it) and suffered neck pain/headaches afterward. That is being resolved. Each visit eases it a little more. The headaches are almost gone, instead of a constant, daily occurrence. We will continue to use Lake Meridian Chiropractic for as long as it takes. I recommend them to anyone looking for quality care from friendly and caring doctors.”– Posted by Cheryl L. on Yelp with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Lake Meridian Chiropractic

“Not only did I have no more pain after my adjustment, but I felt great afterward. I definitely saw a huge difference. They made sure every single question I had was answered, and are always available if I think of any more questions I want answered. Their staff is the most friendly, welcoming staff I’ve ever dealt with. They are so warm and professional, and make the whole experience that much better.”– Posted by Wayne Townley on Wellness with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Lake Meridian Chiropractic

“I like to be brief in my initial words of a review then go into details for those who care to read on. This place is good. Fast, friendly, clean, helpful, accommodating, honest, knowledgeable, and really seem to care about each of their patients. They remember your name and take the time to walk you through everything and explain what is going on. They answer all the questions I have without making me feel stupid for asking. Best of all, they are honest! They are not just trying to jack you for your insurance money. If you don’t need to return, they don’t ask you to. If you need to return, they explain why and it’s not just some BS excuse to get you in there. Last but not least, the little things matter and they take care of those too. Handwritten birthday card from Dr. Saggau- check, someone to watch the kids while parents are being looked at- check, goodies out for people to munch on- check, Ipads to keep you busy IF there ever is a wait- check! They’re really covered their bases here at Lake Meridian Chiropractic. I was involved in a car accident which consisted of me sitting still in my car at a dead stop and being rear ended by someone driving about 35-30 mph. In the months that followed my car accident I wasn’t getting any better. I had been doing physical therapy, massage therapy and acupuncture but the whiplash had taken its toll. Therapists started to give up on me and quite frankly so did I. Then, I was blessed that my normal doctor referred me to a specialist who turned around and referred me to Dr. Saggau at Lake Meridian Chiropractic. I was not very enthused at first because I had never been to a chiropractor before and I thought they were all the same *snap, crackle, pop* “ta-da you’re better.” I’m happy to say, I was wrong. This office specializes in Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. In non-medical terms, the Atlas is basically the bone that connects right at the base of your skull to the top of your neck. When this bone is off it throws your whole body out of whack (do some research if you think this might be your problem). It can also cause severe headaches. Since my accident I had a headache constantly for about 3 months until I came here. After my first adjustment, I felt relief instantly. Within 5 minutes my headache went from a pain level of 8 out of 10 down to a 2 or 3 out of 10 instantly. Since my atlas was out of place, it was basically squeezing my brain stem cutting off blood circulation to my brain (hence the headaches). I could literally feel the blood rushing back into my head after the adjustment. Similar to when you drink something really cold and you can feel it run down your throat and through your chest. Needless to say my recovery hasn’t been easy, but since I started going here I am slowly but surely getting better. I recommend anyone who is having constant headache or recently been injured in the head or neck area to at least get checked out here by Dr. Saggau and her staff. Dr. Webb and Dr. Packe. They really have given me my “life after the car accident” back.”

“I have two bad discs in my lower back and other chiropractic issues with my back and neck, some from a compilation of injuries accumulated over many years, and probably some from the wear and tear of age. Dr. Saggau has always given me excellent care. I can always get an appointment on short notice if I need to, or even drop in and they’ll fit me in to the schedule. The office staff are always pleasant and helpful. When my insurance company got things wrong, the LMC staff did the extra work to make them right again. As long as I live in South King County, I won’t consider changing chirporactors.”

“Love, love, love Lake Meridian Chiropractic! My family & I have gone there for years and have always had great results. They work well with all ages and have helped more than my back. Easy to get in for an appointment (same day, usually). Always friendly. Front office staff very efficient. I recommend these guys to people all the time. :)”

“I have been seeing Dr. Saggau since before she opened her own practice. I regularly just walk in for an appointment because my body is telling me it is out of whack. I don’t have a preference as to which of the doctors that work or have worked at Lake Meridian Chiropractic since they are all awesome. I am amazed over and over again at the care shown by these doctors. So many of my friends and family have witnessed that chiropractic care makes a difference in my life. I have had a bulging disc since 1991. Through Dr. Saggau’s care, I have never had to have surgery and hopefully never will. This disc has not bothered me in many years due to the care that I have received from LMC. The new cold laser therapy seems to work well too. I am very grateful for the health that I enjoy thanks to Lake Meridian Chiropractic! Keep up the good work!”

“I’ve been to other chiropractors and been pleased with the results but they were not lasting, as my condition is a congenital one and would only be truly remedied by surgery. On recommendations from others I found a chiropractor that specializes in adjusting the Atlas bone first as treatment, specifically Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic. These chiropractors have more training and I have found that adjusting the Atlas does make a difference in lasting results. I began seeing primarily Dr. Laurie Webb (occassionally Dr. Aaron Placke, and very rarely Dr. Danene Saggeau) in September, 2012. They recommended a treatment program of three times a week, then twice a week, then once a week, and so on. She explained that you can go once a week, but it may take more than the 18 visits projected to get well. I was regular about going, and now am at the point where I go about once every three weeks and my Atlas holds. I did have some problems initially with my Atlas having to be adjusted quite a bit, but I can be a hard-to-treat patient. Something mentioned to me by Dr. Webb: If you have your Atlas adjusted, try not to reach for things above your head or look up very much the rest of that day. “Baby” your neck. I don’t have insurance. They regularly offer specials for new patients, I think mine was x-rays, exam and initial adjustment for $90. For me they ended up taking more films on a subsequent visit, which are $30 a view. If you pay in full each visit, they take $10 off the total, so regular adjustments are $35. One time I also had my ankle adjusted and it was $45. I am not sure what they bill your insurance. They are very easy to work with as a cash patient. They sometimes hold your checks for a while, make sure to put it in your ledger! They stack patients and sometimes they are very busy, but they can also usually get you in the same day or next day if you call later in the day (they take lunch 1 to 2 pm). Busiest times of course are after school and work. The doctors are pleasant but work very efficiently. They send out a nice monthly newsletter with helpful information and run a different special each month. The place is rather small, but they make good use of the space. There is a Keurig in the hallway for patients if they want. BIGGEST THING– these are not “snap-crack-pop” chiropractors. They use a strange looking medical device with a metal stylus that they precisely put into place and do one painless “pop” (barely felt) that pushes your Atlas bone into place. If it didn’t go back, they may need to do it again, but usually it goes right back the first time. For other adjustments they use an Activator Adjusting Instrument. They are not as “hands-on” like a lot of chiros are. I actually liked the way a well-trained “snap-crack-pop” chiro makes you feel (instant relief! a tingle as the subluxation is relieved! ooh!), but as I said, within a few weeks of not going, I was in pain again. Atlas Orthogonal seems to have better results, though not as dramatic. Also, these chiros don’t do any heat/cold/massage…it’s just the adjustment(s), and you’re outta there.”

“I feel that they really try to accommodate you.  I began going to them last year and my neck and back have never felt better. I have been in many car accidents and have never really gotten treatment for my back. I just kind of resolved to live with the pain. I kind of felt like it was normal to be in pain when you get older but I was definitely wrong! The doctors there honestly care about getting you better. I understand that there is no magic bullet and my pain didn’t just happen over night so how can I expect to be “cured” in one visit. I like how they educated me on why I need this and why I should do that, etc. and don’t make me feel stupid for asking questions. Anytime I’ve had a concern the office staff has addressed it and tried to fix things in the future. I continue to go not only because they make me feel better but because they have a very kind and gentle approach. No cracking involved. I also like that they have multiple doctors so I can always get in, since I have a very hectic schedule.”

“If your neck is hard for a regular chiropractor to adjust,  or that’s why you don’t go to a chiropractor, have had any with your neck, head whatever. It’s the best money you’ll ever spend, remember if it’s been messed up for years, then it’ll take awhile to stay in longer.”
