  • James Mattern

    My Personal History:
    'My father was like a Jedi Knight with a monkey wrench'

    That's right, a monkey wrench, a giant three foot 28 pounder! It was my dad's 'weapon of choice' when he went to do battle with large, complicated, dirty machines in the automotive industry. Circa: the late 1970's. He was a blue-collar maintenance man for GenCorp Automotive in Wabash, Indiana. During these sorties he would occasionally come home, 'listing', usually starboard, at the waist & not in the best of moods by the way. Being a kid I was oblivious to most of the circumstances. I just knew Dad became Dad-again usually after a trip or two to town and visits to his 'back doctor' the local chiropractor.

Testimonial I've suffered from migraines my entire life. As I've gotten older they have increased in frequency to about 3 times a week. No pain killers, either over- the-counter or prescribed have ever been able to take away one of my migraines in the same day. But if I visit Dr. Mattern, and he adjust me, my headaches are usually gone within a few hours and they stay gone for quite awhile. Unbelievable! I would recommend at least trying chiropractic care if you suffer from migraines too.
