I chose to engage the services of Dr. Gamm and Balance, not out of desperation from pain but more to explore how I could feel even better. A car accident from years ago still had a residual impact with my low back and neck. The Balance X-rays indicated the reason why I was still experiencing occasional discomfort. Within 3 weeks of beginning my treatment the discomfort is non-existent.
I got a nice surprise when I played golf for the first time this summer and discovered I no longer had to compensate for my tendency to hit the balls too far right. My drive is now nice and straight.
I love that I rarely have to wait for my adjustment and the staff is very professional and pleasant.

I began a NUCCA chiropractic adjustment program with Dr. Scott Gamm (Balance Wellness Chiropractic, Canon City and Colorado Springs, CO) on Dec 15, 2011.

Background: On 08/08/08, when I was 47 years old, I was seriously brain damaged due to a right brain cerebral artery stroke that left me paralyzed on the entire left side of my body. By 2011, I was walking again but still had no use of my left arm. The spasticity (automatic contracting of the muscles which signals initial nerve connection) on the left side had decreased significantly from the first year following the stroke but I still held my shoulder too high and the neck was so tight I could not turn my head to look behind me. Scott took x-rays that showed that the angle of the head to the spine was 8 degrees off to the left. He said he could help me correct it, so, I began a course of twice a week adjustments.

After just one week of adjustments I was able to look behind me again and the constant pain in my neck was disappearing. I no longer needed the weekly massage I had been paying for. After 20 sessions, Scott reevaluated me with x-rays that showed the angle had decreased to 4 degrees. Now after 40 sessions, x-rays revealed the angle is 2 degrees. There is no question the NUCCA, incremental, gentle adjustments are straightening me out. The muscles are accepting the change and it seems permanent. I missed many adjustments prior to this third set of xrays, yet the angle never reversed and continued to decrease.

Another significant change has just occurred at my 40 adjustments time period: the spasticity in the muscles on the entire left side has returned in force. ...just like when I was first recovering in the hospital. It is like a limb thawing out from frost bite and coming alive again. Not comfortable but a sign of progress.

Together with my other therapies, I can truly see the light at the end of the tunnel..... I expect full function returning to my hand and the limp disappearing from my walk.

THANKS TO NUCCA.

My name is Brook Bowser. I suffered with chronic lower back pain for four years with only limited, temporary relief from a variety of chiropractors. I took an average of 3000mg of aspirin a day just to be able to function. Within a few months after seeing Dr. Gamm, I was for the most part both pain free and Bayer free. Needless to say, my relief is indescribable. I love Dr. Gamm and the staff at Balance Wellness. I was so happy with my results I am bringing my entire family of 7 to see Dr. Gamm every week. We all love him, and we’ve all seen major health benefits as a result of our visits to Dr. Gamm and Balance Wellness. We’re grateful! -

Before experiencing NUCCA Chiropractic, I almost always had back and neck pain, which often spread throughout my shoulders, as well. I have pretty bad scoliosis which makes one of my shoulders sit higher than the other. After my very first visit with Dr. Scott, my shoulders were noticeably more even and felt completely different. It was incredible! All of my back and neck pain is gone (aside from the occasional soreness after being adjusted) and I feel great! My posture has improved as well. I’ve also noticed a boost in my energy levels and a significant decrease in the amount of headaches I’ve had since beginning treatment with Dr. Scott. The results I’ve experienced are truly amazing and I would recommend NUCCA to anyone wanting to improve their overall health and get rid of their pain! This type of chiropractic work is really wonderful!

Where do I start? This past year has been intense! I’ve worked through and processed a tremendous amount of historic emotional trauma. Amongst other things NUCCA Chiropractic has been an integral part of my self-care. I believe it supported me in opening doors to stuff that I was “stuck in but unable to access consciously.

Physically my body feels pretty good. My nose is almost perfectly straight. It was a little crooked when I first began my NUCCA journey. I’ve had a scanner test before and my body was in dramatically worse shape for years. I’m going to be 50 this year and I have a new sense of commitment to my health. There are no free rides and everything matters. I have spoken with many folks in their late 60’s and early 70’s but they all comment on the fact that they swear they didn’t think that they would live this long.

Another related thing is that that this year I’ve seen it and I firmly believe this to be true. Since probably none of us know when that time is, it behooves us to take the best care of ourselves that we can. Here’s why: because when its our time we go. That’s it. But until then we have a choice and those choices either support suffering or diminish it. If I’m going to live to 10, I don’t want to suffer all the way. You know what I mean. Thank you so much for being a part of my healing journey!

Much Love,

I have been taking treatments since Feb. of this year. When I started I was having dizzy spells, headaches, shoulder, neck and lower back pain. My balance was not good either. Now I seldom have a headache, my neck and shoulder pain is way down, I no longer have dizzy spells, I have not fell down--so my balance is much better. I don't feel as tired and just have more energy. I actually went to a square dance festival a week ago and danced! Not bad for an old girl in her seventies!Nancy K

I have had a curvature of the spine sense childhood and have been seeing a chiropractor for 57 years ( 3 treatments a week).There were only a few hours of each day were I could get the pain under control, but very few days in my life I was pain free. The pains in my neck middle and lower back have caused me to not be able to sleep well for many years. It was becoming hard to drive because my neck was so rigged that I could not turn my head to back up the car.

My friend suggested NUCCA Chiropractic , my husband and I started treatments the middle of April. My neck and middle back have improved greatly and my lower back is responding as well, the most improvement has been the correction of my spine. On August 11, I was resting on the table and waiting for Dr. Gamm to give me a treatment and I heard him say “Marvelous Barb you are in balance and will not need a treatment today”. I was so shocked to hear these words that I could not say anything but inside I was screaming to be heard: Are you sure Doctor?, Would you repeat that please? Dr. Scott this is me Barb to whom you are talking are you sure I heard you correctly? Of all my years of seeking pain relief I had never heard these words.

Belief in the Nucca procedure and Dr. Gamm has come to this body and mind!

What you don’t know can hurt you

Jul 12, 2014 by The Haskins Family

What you don’t know can hurt you. What Dr. Gamm does benefits you and your family for many years.

Jack has had basilar migraines since third grade. These “dizziness” migraines occurred when he did sports, running or even just sitting in the classroom. He went the conventional route, through a neurologist, to try to alleviate the problems, to no avail. A friend suggested Dr. Gamm. We figured we had nothing to lose by trying out NUCCA Chiropractic. To be honest, we were shocked that Dr. Gamm has been able to do so much for him. His migraines are much less severe, shorter in duration and far less frequent. Dr. Gamm gave him back his childhood!

We thought that if Jack has improved so much, that those of us without any serious health issues should also be looked at. We decided to enroll our youngest son, Hunter, as well as me. Hunter had no obvious health problems but we found his spine was out of alignment and his muscles were working hard to compensate. His posture, his walking and the indescribable “light feeling” are the visible results of Dr. Gamm’s work with Hunter.

I was next. It was no shock to me that my workup revealed that I was stressed (four children, one of whom was then serving as a Marine in Afghanistan, and my 82 year old mother was living with our family). I played tennis in high school and college and ran. I still run. These sports put a lot of stress on my spine without me realizing it. Immediately after the first treatment I started having vivid and colorful dreams and was filled with energy. Most people would be happy with energy, but I have nerve been tired. I am still complaining that I now wake up at 5:30 each morning, ready to start the day. Night owls don’t like mornings! I too clearly have been blessed by Dr. Gamm’s Balance, Wellness & Chiropractic Center.

Last but not least was our “Doubting Thomas, “ my husband, Tom. He barely has time to do anything besides work. He was not going to take any of his free time to go and see what might be wrong with him. After six weeks of unrelenting pressure from our family he went to see Dr. Gamm. He really did not give Dr. Gamm a thorough medical history. He too was stressed (75 mile commute to Denver 4 times a week) and had a crooked spine. Two weeks after his first adjustment, Tom noticed that the ringing in his right ear, tinnitus from an old skeet-shooting event, had largely disappeared. His asthma is much improved and his stress level has been lowered. His stomach problems (except for his waistline) have also vanished.

No one in our family had known of NUCCA, Dr. Gamm or the importance of the cervical vertebrae and the upper spinal cord to our health. In the last nine months, each member of our family has tremendously improved; so much so that we recommend Dr. Gamm to our friends. Many now receive his adjustments.

Southern Colorado is fortunate to have Dr. Gamm’s practice here. Thank you, Dr. Gamm!


For about twenty five years ago for reasons I could not explain my neck was practically resting on my left shoulder. I tried to straighten my neck, but to no avail.

I was also having severe pain, and I could not hold my neck in a straight position. I was sad, self conscious, and embarrassed, especially when I was asked what was wrong with my neck or was my neck broken.

When I came to Colorado Springs five years ago I whet to a chiropractor and was under his care for about one year. My neck was still in the same condition.

During the month of February, 2011, I went to a health fair, downtown, and I met Dr. Gamm, a NUCCA Chiropractor. It caught my interest, so I decided to go to his office for a scan and ex-rays. I told LeAnn that I did not feel that they could do anything for me. When Dr. Gamm showed me my neck ex-rays I could not believe it. My neck was at an unbelievable terrible slanted angle. Dr. Gamm told me it was the worst he had encountered.

With my first NUCCA Chiropractic treatment I immediately saw and experienced a difference in my neck. My friend that was with me could not believe it.

After my 20th treatment, ex rays were again taken, and I was amazed and shocked to see my neck at the correct angle. I could move my neck without experiencing any pain. People that were in the office when I came in for the orientation have seen me afterwards, and were also amazed to see how straight my neck was. This has been a total blessing for me. Friends and family members have also seen the amazing results. I have since recommended others to Dr. Gamm.

Thank you Dr. Gamm.

I first learned about the NUCCA Chiropractic procedure from a coworker. I had pain off and on in my neck and shoulder for fourteen years. My worst pain for the past ten years was siatica that radiated from my lower back to my toes and also had severe groin pain especially after sitting. I would have to stand for at least a minute when I was sitting before I could even move. I have seen what trauma pain killers can cause to your body so I chose to just live with the pain.

On May 12, 2011 I had my first adjustment. I was coming in twice a week by my fourth adjustment I started feeling relief in the groin are then the Siatica became less. By the first of July my pain was gone I had slight discomfort in my neck in July and I told Dr. Gamm and he just smiled and said the rubber band was unwinding. Within two days the discomfort was gone. By the end of August I was holding my adjustments pretty good. I now have only one adjustment a week. My first Ex Ray showed that my neck was so straight it was putting pressure on my thyroid. I had a test two years ago because of pain and fatigue. Four and a half months later I’m pain free my hair is no more on the shower floor I have energy and better posture.

Life is good I’m so blessed and thankful that Dr. Gamm was brought into my life.

Thank you Dr. Gamm

The Power is on….

It’s hard to know where a testimony starts – at the beginning of symptoms or at the end. Sometimes we don’t realize they are symptoms until someone with greater knowledge of the human body tells us. (Someone like Dr. Gamm!) It would be hard to talk about everything that chiropractic – and now NUCCA chiropractic – has improved over the last several years without writing a small book as a testimony. But I hope this little bit about my body’s biggest struggle will maybe help someone who needs to hear that it’s never too late to improve.

I had my first migraine when I was about 11 or 12 years old. But headaches had begun much earlier, and I was told they probably came from low blood sugar. No other explanation necessary. When the migraines began, it was said it was probably something in my diet, and again, no other explanation necessary – just avoid certain foods and “see how it goes”. My first migraine took my ability to stand and see, and even to be aware of my surroundings, though thankfully these extreme symptoms lessened a bit as they recurred.

As a child I never intended on repeating that worst day of my life, and that’s the only good thing about being a child with migraines – you don’t usually assume there will be a next time. But happen again they did, and if it wasn’t a migraine it was just a regular old bad headache. The only answer was drugs, with the option of coming to the local clinic whenever I needed a shot because nausea was too intense to keep anything else down. There didn’t seem to be any other options my family was aware of.

In a nutshell, I grew up draggy, irritable and somewhat lost. Headaches went in cycles growing up – there were times they didn’t occur quite as often as others. But exhaustion always continued, and soon enough the tightness and pain would come back. There were never any goals, and dreams seemed too far from reality to entertain for long. What do you do with a child, friend or student that can’t relate or focus many days? When migraines came, my sister would help me/half carry me up the stairs or back to bed after lying on the bathroom floor waiting for the nausea to subside. My mother was always willing to get me to the clinic for a shot if I couldn’t stand it anymore. But for the most, by grade school, I was left to endure in my own way, and found I liked it better that way.

And then somewhere along the line came the struggle of anorexia. Ironic enough, headaches were never fewer than during starvation. But eventually when health returned, so did the headaches. And then came neck pain, which then seemed to aggravate my headaches more. It took most of my life to realize how draining pain is, and how that affects all areas of life. Always exhaustion; Almost 20 years since my first headaches, and I no longer considered a healthy pain free life an option. Sometimes I’d ask – why would god want me to live like this why would he save me from death through addiction so the major task each day was to just fight pain when I could be doing so much more? I don’t have the answer to that except that sometimes we are allowed to have bigger struggles to have bigger stories to tell. And it doesn’t make me trust god any less.

It took a long time to consider chiropractic medicine when a friend kept suggesting it. It was a few years of listening and a two week long migraine that finally drove me to consider it seriously for myself. It had always just been too foreign a concept but I was desperate. I didn’t go because I wanted to be healthy, and wasn’t aware how far into the body chiropractic would reach, just wanted the pain to stop. Understood what it means to have the whole body respond to proper alignment. And have dreams of being healthy.

I’m so thankful for chiropractic – and now NUCCA even more – but it is for everyone, whether you have pain or not. Every part of the body benefits from being aligned as it should be, as Dr. Gamm knows how to explain well! It can take time for the body to heal, but I am so thankful to have so much less pain as s o many others, feel more improvement as time goes on, and to live life – for 0thers, with others, for myself, too.

During Matthew’s fourth year of life he got sick. I was watching him sleep and he was breathing really funny. I had never seen anything like it. I called the nurse line and she told me to take him to urgent care. They took my son from urgent care to the hospital in an ambulance and told me I was very lucky he wasn’t dead. What?! My son was healthy. What was wrong with him? They told me RSV. Ok, will he get it again? Nope, fluke thing he will be fine don’t worry about it. We spent the next 7 years in and out of the hospital. Every time he got sick it was worse. Every time he got sick they put him on more medicines. By the time we met Dr Gamm my 12 year old son was taking 6 different medications, adult doses and still being hospitalized multiple times per year. I took him to multiple specialists and they all had different opinions and different drugs and none of it helped. I was beyond frustrated. I was scared every time I put my son to bed and he had so much as a sniffle he would not wake up. My son began to ask me quite regularly if he was going to die.

The summer of 2010 my father said I should take Matthew to go see this new doctor he had been seeing. Dad seeing a breathing specialist? What was up with that..Not a breathing specialist? A WHAT? I thought my father had lost his mind. I told him in no uncertain terms was I taking my son to see his voodoo doctor. In August my son was in the hospital again. When he was released my folks came over to bring him lunch. Sitting at my dining room table my dad said again, I really wish you would consider taking Matthew to see Dr. Gamm. I’ve talked to him and he really thinks he can help him. Again I scoffed. I am SO not a chiropractor person; pretty much think people who spend money on things like that are silly. I really cannot see the point, but he offers to pay for him to go get checked out if I will just take him..Fine… whatever..In the car on the way to our initial appointment my son Andrew asked where we were going..I flippantly told him to go see Pa’s voodoo doctor. After a minute or two he said, “Mom my Pa loves Jesus he would not go see a Voodoo doctor”. Ugh they take everything so literally!

I walked into our appointment with the worst attitude in the world, but I listened and I looked at the x-rays and I listened some more. What Dr Gamm showed me and told me made more sense than a team of specialist. Could it really be that easy? No way. As I sat there and listened I began to feel hope and encouragement for the first time in years. See what I failed to mention earlier because I had forgotten until my meeting was about 2 month before Matthew stared getting sick we had been in a car accident. I took my boys to the hospital they declared them to be unhurt and we went about our business. They were both very hurt, just not in a way that typical doctors notice.

Within a month of our visits I took Matthew off all of his medicines. I fought with the doctors; I fought with his father..Who said I had finally turned into one of those stupid people who would try anything..Everyone who knew me thought I had finally lost my mind. You know what? My son was fine, in fact he was great. He was happy. He would smile, he would laugh, and he would come and hug me and tell me how much he loved me. The temper tantrums and horrible attitude seemed to disappear. His speech began to clear up. Everything was going great! I was so happy! Then he got sick. I panicked I sat with Dr Gamm and cried and cried. “You told me you would help me and he’s sick!” I was terrified. Matthew had a cold, this normally meant days in the hospital, coming home with oxygen and more meds. Oh, I didn’t want to do this again. We had been so happy! You know what? Matthew was sick for about a week and then was fine. Not once did his oxygen levels drop to a dangerous level He was fine; he actually just had a cold. I could not believe it. It was amazing. Matthew has not been in the hospital in almost a year. Matthew is not taking any medications. Matthew gets sick and gets well just like everyday normal kids. He went from missing 20-30 days of school in 2009 to 8 days last year and none so far this year! I have a brand new child. I have a healthy, funny, loving non-medicated little boy and it is wonderful.

After seeing the results with Matthew I decided (again with my parents urging) to take Andrew. Andrew threw up all the time, sometimes multiple times per day,(the doctors say severe refulxer)he couldn’t sit at the table without knocking something over, always tripped over his own feet and was generally just a walking disaster zone. We used to joke that he was the clumsiest kid around my father used to get me vomit bags from the airplane so I could keep them in my purse, car, and pocket. We could not go anywhere without him throwing up. It was horrible. My sweet beautiful son thought throwing up multiple times a day was just a normal part of life. Andrew has not thrown up in months, never trips over his feet anymore and only spills his drink about once a month.

I also decided to give this thing a try. At this point, Why not? I have scoliosis and get sever migraines. My vision has gotten so bad that I don’t drive at night anymore. If I stand for more than 10-15 minutes my hips hurt for days. If I get a headache even with medication they last 3-4 days. But that’s life, right? After my first adjustment I got a headache and it lasted about 4 hours. I continued to get headaches for about 3 months but the longevity lessened each time. Now I cannot remember the last time I have had a headache and I used to get them every 2 weeks or so. I tell you what, I can stand all day long and work and sweep and mop without pain. I don’t pull my muscles in my sleep anymore, I can hike and play all day and get out of bed the next day! ?Oh yeah, I can drive at night now too..:)

After I had received approximately six NUCCA adjustments from Dr. Gamm I went to a massage therapist for a back massage. When she began massaging my back she commented that the muscles in my back were not as tense as they were before. She said she remembered because of the greatness of the tenseness that was there the last time I had a massage; which was about three months earlier. I attributed this to the adjustments I had received from Dr. Gamm. When I first went to see Dr. Gamm I was experiencing pain in my lower back. Now I am pain free in that area.  

I have also noticed the joints in my knees have improved considerably after eight adjustments. I have difficulty getting up from a sitting position as my knees become locked after sitting for long periods of time, making it painful for me to rise to a standing position and be able to walk. Now, I am becoming more and more pain free in this area. I find I am having less and less pain in my knee joints on a regular basis as I continue receiving adjustments from Dr. Gamm. 

Thank you, Dr. Gamm!!

I must admit...I was a little skeptical when I first learned about N.U.C.C.A Chiropractic. How could something so noninvasive and subtle be effective?

During one of my first appointments with Dr. Gamm he discussed a lot of the concepts behind his practice at Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center. The theories are so simple and make good common sense; such as “top down, inside out”. I say this to myself quite frequently now. By putting good things into my body and through his treatments, my body is now starting to heal itself.

I came to Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center due to severe chronic pain in my neck and shoulders. Medical doctors told me the only thing that I could do, that I had not already tried, was to have the vertebras in my neck fuses together. I certainly didn’t want to have to resort to that invasive of a procedure.

My first visit to Dr. Gamm’s office included getting a series of x-rays and tests that measure the electronic signals in my body. Wow! I knew I was having problems, but I had no idea how messed up I really was. The x-rays he took (which were much more in depth than the doctors’ were) clearly showed where my problems started and why I was in so much pain. X-rays don’t lie! Following my initial exam, I received my first adjustment. When I arrived, I had a headache (which is very common for me) and by the time I got off the treatment table, it was gone!

When I first starting going to Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center, I had been receiving traditional chiropractic care for almost a year. It started with adjustments two to three times a week for several weeks and eventually dropped down to one adjustment every two to three weeks. I did get some relief from it. However, after only three adjustments from Dr. Gamm, I had more relief than I did with all of my traditional chiropractic care.

Over the course of the last few weeks I find that I have less pain, I sleep better, my digestion has improved, and I even lost 5 pounds. I also have so much more flexibility and range of motion. I just completed my 12th adjustment and was amazed at the difference in my x-rays. The changes are shocking! It is obvious that my neck is healing. My jaw has straightened and my nasal passages have opened up more. After all, x-rays don’t lie!

I plan to return for more adjustments. I still have more work to do, but I know that through his practice, I can attain optimum health, balance, and wellness.

For the last 20 years I have suffered with daily headaches and migraines at least once or twice a week. I would go through a bottle of Excedrin migraine at least once a week and fortunately I had migraine medicine I could take for the really bad days. A dear friend of mine told me about Dr. Gamm and how he was helping people with all kinds of illnesses. I had been seeing a Chiropractor for the last 20 years so I was a little skeptical about going to another Chiropractor but I thought it’s worth a try. 

My first visit was very interesting and I was very intrigued by the way he talked about treating the whole body not just the neck and back area. As I watched him treat other patients I thought this is so weird how does that help anybody but I knew God had me there for a reason and I was determined to give it a try. As I lay back on the table I just remember praying and knowing that God was using Dr. Gamm to heal all these people, I felt relaxed and ready for whatever he was going to do. I did not feel any immediate results and did not get back to see him for a week but during that time my headaches were not as severe or as often. 

My next visit he recommended that I start taking the detox pills and to use them whenever I felt a headache coming on….so I did and I saw amazing results. I did not have a migraine for 5 weeks which was so awesome. I was also not having my daily headaches and was using the detox pills as soon as felt like I was getting a headache. During the course of my treatment I had several things happening to my body like acid reflux, pain in my lower back (which I used to have a lot) and each time I would have something different happening I would tell Dr. Gamm and he would have an answer and a solution and it would always take care of the problem. Recently I purchased the book he has in his office about nutrition and I am working on cutting out sugar and processed foods, which have also helped me have more energy.

Thank you Dr. Gamm for treating the whole body, mind and spirit!!!

God Bless you as you help others!

I walked into Dr.Gamm’s office an absolute mess. I had a severe migraine, was blinded (literally) by light, my thoughts were fuzzy, my equilibrium off, and had a chronic pain in my mid-back. Everytime I would take a deep breath, I felt like a rib was out. After my 1st NUCCA adjustment, my head began to tingle, and it felt that way the entire 45 minute drive home. Then I re-emerged from my car a new person, my back pain gone, my eyes no longer sensitive to light, and my thoughts continued to get clearer from adjustment to adjustment. I currently am on the Detox formula, as well as cutting my primary care physician prescriptions for me in half, with my goal of being completely free from all prescription meds by August 9th, 2010, all thanks to Dr.Gamm!

Before beginning N.U.C.C.A Chiropractic. I had been on an anti-depressant for 17 years. After 2 months of treatment, I was able to completely stop the medication. I had beginning signs of a thyroid disorder and fibromyalgia; now both are completely gone. I also had migraines. I have not had a migraine since beginning N.U.C.C.A. Chiropractic. My jaw used to pop and lock occasionally and now it doesn’t. My overall energy has greatly increased. I had an irregular menstrual cycle and was concerned about being able to get pregnant. I did get pregnant 2 months after beginning N.U.C.C.A. Chiropractic, because now my body is in balance and functioning properly. Although the results were slow to see at first, N.U.C.C.A. Chiropractic has made a major difference in my life.

My First Thirty Years

I have a headache. A response I grew tired of saying, just as I’m sure the people in my life grew tired of hearing. What child, in their right mind, turns down a trip to an amusement park? A day at the beach? A sleepover at a friend’s house? Who can go to sleep as soon as she gets home from school on Friday, not wake up until late afternoon on Saturday, and not even know what day it is? I constantly turned down fun activities… because I had a headache. I had taken so much Tylenol, exceeding the recommended dosage daily, that my body no longer responded. So I moved onto Advil, and it wasn’t long before the same thing happened. There wasn’t a pain reliever in the world that worked. After seeing a neurologist who ruled out epilepsy, I was put on two medications for migraines; one to “prevent” the migraine, and one to “get rid of it”. That which I hear several people swear by, couldn’t put a dent in my pain.

By the time I was a teenager, my family saw this as an excuse to get myself out of doing my chores and other obligations like homework. As a result, I was constantly being yelled at to get my butt in gear, stop being a drama queen, or take some medicine and move on. When I turned 18, I decided to see a doctor on my own. The result turned out to be worse than anything I had heard before. Ma’am, your headaches will go away with menopause. What? I was devastated. At 18, I had at least 22 years of crippling headaches to endure. My future seemed bleak, and I was beyond depressed. It was not the first time I wanted to get rid of the pain by ending it all.

I graduated high school and moved away to sunny Florida for college where I joined the rowing team. I had decided I was going to make the most of my situation, and what better way to do that than be on the water everyday to watch the sunrise? There is nothing more peaceful than being in the middle of the bay, with dolphins and manatees swimming all around you, and the sun rising over the ocean. While that may be true, I grew to hate the rigorous exercise routines. At the end of every practice or race, my head literally felt as though it would explode at any moment. All I had to do was move. Aside from practices, classes, and homework (which I put off as long as humanly possible), I slept. I had no life, but for the first time in a long time, I felt like I did… if for no other reason than because I enjoyed that time in the morning before the rest of the world woke up, and the hum of the universe began to pound in my head. It was the one moment in my day that I looked forward to.

I ended up quitting the team in hopes that the headaches would lessen, or at very least, ease up. This was not the case. Instead, my headaches would cause me to miss classes as I was passed out in my dorm room. I am incredibly passionate about children and teaching. Unfortunately, my professors saw me as a slacker. If I could not make them understand my situation, my grade reflected their disapproval.

After college, I moved home to teach. I realized that what was once my passionate dream, became a horrible reality. I should have loved waking up everyday to inspire young minds. Instead, I dreaded their energy. I feared the headache I lived with every day, and hated the fact that I could not put forth 110%. My students were lucky if they got half of what I know I have to give. I decided to leave and take a chance to travel the world with Royal Caribbean cruises working as a youth staff. I spent three years struggling to get myself out of bed to enjoy the world that was being handed to me. If I wasn’t working, I was sleeping. If I managed to make it into port, it was only for a few hours before I headed back to take a nap before work. Without a nap, there would be so much pressure in my head, that I wouldn’t make it through my shift without violently crying in a desperate attempt to relieve the pressure.

For reasons unknown to me, I left ships a little over a year ago. After a few months of unemployment, I moved to Colorado. My sister was here with a 2 year old, one on the way, and a husband deployed in Afghanistan, and a dear friend from ships, whose profound faith helped me through most of my time there, lived in Ft. Collins. I saw this move as a chance to start a new life. I had no idea the truth behind that. Only 2 months after moving here, my friend encouraged me to start out on a journey that would ultimately change my life. Due to doubts and insecurities, I hemmed and hawed for a while before deciding to partake in the journey she had described. A few months later, I found myself attending a health and wellness event where I met a man who talked a good game. A NUCCA chiropractic doctor laid out my history of illnesses by simply touching my spine. Chronic ear and sinus infections, lower back pain, knee problems, gall bladder, liver, and thyroid issues were all trumped by the headaches in my life, but he knew about them all. When no other human (doctor, family, friend, or foe) believed my pain, he did. Swearing to me he had the answers to my problems, I was skeptical. I had heard it before, but figured I had nothing to lose except the pain, so I signed up for a complete evaluation.

At this point in my story, I don’t feel as though words could do justice with what exactly changed after my first adjustment. I woke up the following day without a headache. For the first time in my life, I looked forward to getting out of bed and facing the day. I enjoy exercising! I’m going back to teaching! I love being active and taking control of my life. I love having a life! I have shed many tears over headaches and the disappointments and pain that came with them. I have shed many tears writing my story. I am most grateful that this is the last time I will ever shed a tear over a headache. I turned 30 a few months after my first adjustment, and there’s a song by Tim McGraw that says, almost perfectly, what my world is like now.

“My next thirty years I’m gonna settle all the scores. Cry a little less, laugh a little more. Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear. Figure out just what I’m doing here, in my next thirty years.

"My next thirty years will be the best years of my life. Raise a little family... Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear. Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years.”

~My Next Thirty Years by Tim McGraw

THANK YOU DR. SCOTT AND TEAM!


I could never thank Scott and Leann at nucca balance wellness for giving me back the quality of life I was used to. My daughter for a birthday gift game the initial sign up package. thought why not give them a try I have everybody else, must admit I was a skeptic. At that point I was in so much pain I'd try anything Numerous chiropractors, and other health professionalcouldn't fix the problem just eased the pain for a day or two. I was suffering from a lower back injury that only got worse with time, to where by the end of the day I was nearly incapacitated and in so much pain I didnt want to go on!

That's when Scott with balance wellness came into my life. Within 2 weeks I was able to make it through a day with little pain and being mobile again. Here I am a little over a year with no pain and healthy as a youngster again. It's a miracle that such a simple and natural procedure is the best medicine on this earth.With what he has done I am also working on healing my inner peace and becoming a much calmer and happier person. I used to be very stressed and angry, not anymore. I feel healthy and vibrant again! My final message is I feel sorry for the

skeptics that don't believe,they don't know what they're missing out on. thank you so much Scott and Leeanne, you've made me whole again!

Your dedicated patient Sharon J


I wasn’t supposed to be here.

I had been amazed at how quickly the routine of life seemed to ebb away through the years. Although I was in my mid-fifties, I saw folks many years my senior that seemed to function and even thrive in a manner that seemed beyond me. I reasoned that it might be hereditary. Our family joke was “poor health runs in our family because no one runs in our family…” But, despite a strong work ethic, physical activity seemed difficult and never pleasurable.I assumed it had to do with my weight. Tipping the scales at almost 300 lbs, I would sweat profusely, take labored breaths, endure sleep apnea devices, and collapse in a chair whenever possible.The face staring back at me every morning looked older and more tired than I ever imagined I would be at this point in life. I wasn’t supposed to be here…

I hadn’t planned to be here.

A co-worker had invited me to come to a dinner to hear a “Dr. Gamm.” This co-worker was the consummate salesman and was always advocating a new treatment, product or service. I decided to come to that dinner half-expecting a multi-level marketing scheme or some such nonsense.I was surprised and somewhat intrigued when this Dr. Gamm presented a program with insight, wisdom, and common sense. A brief flicker of hope sparked in my soul, and I thought how great it would be if any of this really worked.I couldn’t point to a specific injury, symptom or time when that caused my physical decline; I somehow how drifted into this lethargic mire largely because of ignorance on how I could live any differently. I hadn't planned to be here…~

I never thought I would be here.

Less than a year ago, my wife and I had our first appointment with Dr. Gamm. In a very brief time, Dr. Gamm became “Scott” and we were soon embraced by both his knowledge and his staff. Scott’s wife LeAnn came alongside to help us with our eating habits, and whole new vistas began to open up.Somewhere along the way, minor nuances that had impeded my physical exertion began to drop away. Not in a dramatic fashion; but subtly I began to realize I was walking farther without experiencing an ache in my lower spine. My hips no longer hurt towards the end of the day. And even my feet didn’t “flop” when I began to get tired. (My wife used to always be able to tell if I was fatigued because my foot would have a distinctive “slap” with each step.)These were issues I hadn’t ever complained to a Physician about, I assumed that there wasn’t an answer or cure to be found. But my life was definitely evolving…Much more dramatic was the change in our daily diets that LeAnn coached us through. In less than six months, my weight plummeted over 100 lbs. My outlook changed just as dramatically. I began to enjoy daily bike rides with my faithful Australian Shepherd trotting alongside (HE was thrilled)! My energy level was “off the charts” and projects that had languished for months on my “to do” list were being completed with enthusiasm. Longtime friends didn’t recognize my new, slender physique. Shopping for clothes (which became a big necessity!) was much easier; I could find pants and shirts in NORMAL sizes. Mirrors and cameras were no longer enemies to be avoided, but a confirmation of what had happened. My wife was equally trim, having lost weight even more efficiently than I!Between Scott’s unorthodox adjustments and LeAnn’s nutritional insights, we had magically, wondrously, blissfully become whole new, younger, healthier people. I was stunned and grateful. I never thought I would be here…~

I will never go there again.

It’s hard to describe the extent of changes that we have experienced in less than a year. My oldest son introduces me with pride and brags about how I can ride my bike farther than he can. No longer tethered to the CPAP (breathing machine for sleep apnea), I sleep deeply and wake up fully rested.Decisions about recreation are no longer based on “weight limits,” “restrictive seat size,” or “over exertion.” We can consider all options and any format for what we want to do. There is a new freedom in our life, a new appreciation of God’s handiwork in “knitting us together in our Mother’s womb,” and a new joy in the abundance of a body aligned and reaching peak performance.Our experience with Scott and LeAnn have definitely created one of those “watershed” moments in our life; what it was like before “Balance Wellness,” and what it is like now. We are incredibly grateful that we stumbled upon these people and this place, albeit somewhat by accident~ but definitely providentially!

As far as our life before this year? I will never go there again…

Since coming to Dr. Scott Gamm at the Balance and Wellness Chiropractic Center for over the past 2 months, I have been feeling much better. I am a “type 1” diabetic person and I have reduced my insulin injections from 3 needles a day to 2 a day. My hemorrhoids have mainly shrunk away, and my bowel movements are much more regularly under control. I also believe my blood pressure is also much better, usually lower than before the treatments by Dr. Gamm. I have also been able to walk for at least a mile some days, which I have not done for quite some time.

Ilse H.


When I first came to Dr Gamm in Feburary of 2012 I was 1.5 years into “healing” from a MTBI (mild tramatic brain injury), due to an auto accident. I went to his orientation & listened to the discussion of his version of chiropractic. NUCCA huh? Never heard of it. Now, I had been going to a chiropractor for years & had been going to one frequently since my accident. I got temporary relief & slow improvement, but very little life changing, permanent healing. How different could this be? I had been searching for something that could bring my life back; that had been take away, which seemed like forever ago. I was desperate & was willing to try most anything, except drugs. I was already also doing massage therapy, migun, acupuncture, ice, hydo-therapy, magnets, Pilates exercise rehab, Yoga, balance & vision therapies, counseling, EMDR, biofeedback & numerous supplements, herbs, vitamins, minerals & brain hormones from my neurologist. So another therapy, another Dr appt, another trip into town; I was skeptical & burned out. My life was no longer my own, so what the hell.

My life had been turned upside down. Nothing was as it seemed & my perception of everything was skewed. I now had a temper which I never had before, was confused & frustrated by even simple things, had no tolerance, had no filter on things I said & had to relearn most mental tasks. I was an emotional roller coaster all the time; swung back & forth from depression then anxiety, screamed & cried frequently (a foreign thing to me). Loud noises, even social events with lots of people, made me anxious, made my head hurt, sometimes made me nauseous, made me feel disoriented & would many times just shut me down. I cut off most of my friends, family & people in general. It was too physically & intellectually demanding & exhausting. Embarrassing too, due to my difficulty in carrying on a conversation; couldn’t remember names or what things were called, my memory was gone, I sometimes stuttered, & I was always hunting for words. Communication was a real challenge & all of my relationships suffered; including my marriage. I was alone, scared, & I didn’t understand why life had become so difficult. I had numerous cognitive issues, ones I went to great lengths to hide. Such as: I would get to my Doctor appointments & couldn’t remember how to get home, be driving somewhere & have not idea where I was going, not knowing the day, date or even the month, couldn’t remember how to turn on the car, & on & on. Thank God I didn’t forget how to use my smart phone or my ipod touch. They were they only things that kept me in touch with reality, since it was constantly escaping me. I was barely functioning, only doing what I could, to get by. I had to schedule life in small bites, could only handle a few things a day. Lost 50% of by clientele at my job, due to the fact I could only do a few appointments a week. I didn’t know how I was going to go on by myself, make a living, or even survive. I didn’t even know I had a brain injury. After all, the insurance company said there was nothing wrong with me. They said it wasn’t a serious accident, my car wasn’t damaged enough. They quit paying my bills after 3 months. The stress was so oppressive, it physically held me down. I lost 20 pounds. I didn’t know who I was or where Sandy had gone, but I was not me. So day after day went by; I pushed on.

Hearing screeching tires or honking horns, would put me into a panic. Driving scared me & wiped me out (it used to be easy & I loved it). I discovered how very complicated a task it is with all of its sensory input, hand/foot eye coordination & split second decisions. None of which I had much of or the capacity to do. My stamina in general was in the tank (I used to be a high energy kind of person). I was tired all the time, couldn’t get much done, always ran out of energy, but still good, sustained sleep eluded me. I would have my episodes I called ‘my crashes’. The neurologist called them sensory overloads & my brain was shutting down. All I know was when they would come on my senses would disappear 1 by 1 & sometimes I’d uncontrollably fall asleep in mid sentence. I got to know the feeling when it was coming on, so I’d immediately get to a safe place to “ride it out”.

My neck & head ached (even sore to the touch) & my ears rang constantly. My right ear was continuously plugged, ached most of the time, & I couldn’t hear out of it. When I talked or ate it sounded like a popcorn machine in my ear, because every time it opened & closed I would get popping & I could hear my own voice (& chewing) like a tunnel in my head. I used to constantly yank on my right ear, & I even joked with my chiropractor how someday that ear would be twice as big as the other since I was always pulling on it. It gave me some temporary relief of symptoms. My right jaw also joined in on the party; it ached, sometimes locked, & frequently gave me unbearable headaches.

Then there were the vision issues; boy was that terrible. I had never worn glasses, except readers, but now that all had changed. To read I had to put 2 glasses, one over the top of another, just to read. Street signs & things at a distance, well, seeing those just didn’t happen anymore. Bright light killed my eyes & would just shut me down. The worst was flashing lights, even sunlight flashing between trees. That was a real problem for me, I live in Black Forest. That was one of the scariest problems, because if my eyes saw flashing light I would go from disorientation, to nausea, to dizzy, to sometime loosing focus altogether, in a matter of seconds. It happened frequently when I was driving & I would have to slam on the brakes, pull over & pull myself together. There were times I have no idea how long I sat there. Many times I just cried. After some of these episodes it would leave me drained, sometime for days.

Another very frequent & scary symptom was the lack of balance. Some of the spells were disorientation, others were my out of body experiences, (where my head & body were not feeling attached or aligned), or down right spinning out of control dizzies. I learned these usually came on as a result of my body doing some kind of movement. I learned very early on to hold on to everything in my environment. Such as walls when walking, getting out of chairs, railings, hiking poles; whatever was in reach. In the early stages of my injury it was particularly dangerous, because I couldn’t feel myself falling & wouldn’t know it until I was on the floor. This was also a great source of sadness for me. I used to lead an active life, I love the outdoors, love sports & have a very physical job that I love. Of course all of that involves movement, balance, strength, stamina & vision. None of which I’ve had much of. Very little of the things that I loved & that make me happy had been a part of my life. I missed that life.

This was my life for the better part of the year & a half leading up to seeing Dr Gamm. A few things happened that brought me to Dr Gamm. First a good friend told me one day she was taking me to dinner, then a meeting & that I couldn’t refuse. That was the first step that changed my life. She took me to one of the Colorado Tramatic Brain Injury Meetings. It was a free resource for anyone that needs help. I got lots of contacts, info, support groups & ideas. I also realized at this point what I had been suffering from & that it was time for me to take care of myself. I got to listen to lots of people going through the same things I had been going through, & I suddenly realized I wasn’t crazy, wasn’t alone & I was indeed hurt. It gave me hope & the strength I needed not to sit back & accept this new life, but to go & change it, get my old life back.

Then a little later I went to the dentist, a routine appointment. I had been to him shortly after the accident & he looked at my jaw then, At that point he told me if I was still having problems after the body healed I may have to have it addressed. When I saw him again in 2012 I was having full blown jaw issues. He performed tests on my jaw & proved that all of my teeth on the right side of my mouth weren’t even touching. It was so far out of alignment he couldn’t do dental work on my teeth, because the bite was so wrong. Making the teeth “fit” would only have fixed the symptom, not the problem. So from an unlikely place came my referral to Dr. Gamm.

Before I had my first appointment with Balance Wellness I talked extensively to the receptionist in the dentist’s office (she had seen Dr Gamm as well). I picked her brain about how it worked & what to expect. Even that didn’t fully prepare me for what I was about to experience. The first adjustment I actually felt the bones in my neck move, freaky, but it didn’t hurt, ok, so far so good. Then I went to get up & wow did I feel weird. I went back to rest in the Zero gravity chair & got weirder by the minute. After 15 minutes in the chair I felt like I did right after the accident. It’s a wonder I didn’t get picked up for drunk driving going home, I was that out of it. I came home & iced; basically passed out & slept for 12 hours. Best sleep I’d had in a long time. Woke up the next day feeling good, but somewhat tired. Each subsequent appointment the “weirdness” was less & the recovery was shorter. For the few weeks I called the receptionist at the dentist office, just to check in & make sure all the things I was going through was normal. She always assured me it was & that it was all part of the retracting process, which is a term I had heard Dr Gamm use, & now I understood exactly what he meant. The great part of this whole story is within a month my jaw has stopped hurting, all my teeth hit at the same time, I can chew on the right side, my rights ear is no longer plugged & I can hear out of it fine. Emotionally I’m feeling more & more like myself again. Things like improved energy, more patience, control of emotions, clear thoughts, better vision & balance, plus many more positive things are happening. The brain fog is lifting & my brain is better able to function. My body is changing all the time, constantly & steadily improving. For the first time since the accident I can see & feel changes happening with my body with every adjustment. Everyday that passes I feel better. I am so glad I’m becoming myself again & ever so thankful for Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center, the staff & NUCCA. I’m even going to take on some of those sports I love & have missed, this fall & winter.

Thanks so much, Dr. Scott

They say when you aren’t looking for something you will find it, which is exactly how I found Dr. Gamm and discovered through his genuine passion to help and heal others the seemingly miraculous N.U.C.C.A. Chiropractic treatments. 

Three and a half years ago, I lost 50% of the range of motion in my mouth. I could not open my mouth to eat apples, sandwiches, etc. and was in constant pain. I began seeing an orthodontist who fitted me with a splint which I would have to wear 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The splint made me feel very self conscious of my appearance and at times affected my ability to clearly communicate as it caused me to sometimes slur. Initially, I was supposed to wear the splint for 6 months and depending on how the treatment progressed I would need oral surgery to move my lower jaw forward, have teeth pulled and wear braces – none of which would guarantee that I would have full range of motion, relief from the pain, or other issues that I suffered from the degenerative joint disease. 

The 6 months soon came and went with no improvements, I hadn’t gotten worse, but I wasn’t getting better. My orthodontist was at a loss on where to go with my treatment plan, so I continued to see him every 4 – 6 weeks for splint adjustments for the next 3 years. I felt hopeless until 3 months ago when I came to the Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center with my sister-in-law to see LeAnn for nutritional concerns that we had. During our initial consultation LeAnn told me that she felt as though Dr. Gamm could really help me with the issues I had been having with my degenerative joint disease. These words were not unfamiliar to me, so needless to say I was leery at first to believe and trust in them, but I realized that after investing 3+ years in my current treatment plan with no progress I had nothing to lose. There was absolutely no pressure to commit to anything, just an opportunity to invest in my overall health and wellness. After getting my x-rays and body scan, I received my first N.U.C.C.A. treatment. Prior to getting the treatment, I was completely drained from sinus/allergy issues that I had that day including a headache and nausea. Immediately after my treatment I felt completely rejuvenated. The sinus/allergy issues that I was having had vanished, but most impressive of all – I could open my mouth! The whole way home and for the next few days I kept opening my mouth because it seemed too good to be true! Three months have passed since that first treatment and it wasn’t too good to be true! Since that first treatment, not only have I been able to free myself from the splint that I had become dependent on, but my blood pressure has gone down from 150/110 to 110/74 allowing me to address the problem instead of taking prescription medication to mask the problem, my pulse fluctuated from the high eighties and nineties and is now fluctuating from the sixties to the seventies, I no longer suffer from sinus problems when the barometric pressure changes, I have not had a migraine since I have been getting N.U.C.C.A. Chiropractic treatments and I no longer wake up in the middle of the night with unexplainable anxiety that resulted in many sleepless nights. If I do wake up, I am able to go right back to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. N.U.C.C.A. has made a huge impact on many medical issues that I had, but it has also allowed me to enjoy the simple pleasures of life like riding a bicycle and eating an apple – the simple things that are sometimes taken for granted.

Through Dr. Gamm and N.U.C.C.A., my overall health and wellness has gone 360 degrees and I will be forever grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to live life to the fullest! The Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center has so much to offer and I am thrilled to share my personal experience, as I know amazing things await those who enter here!

Since the 4th grade I played basketball, football, baseball, and soccer. I briefly tried surfing, and I skateboarded. As I got through high school I added skiing. During these years I had water on the knee in both knees several times. I never broke a bone, but my joints felt the injuries. By 23 I had trouble standing from a crouched position. Then I had a motorcycle wreck, and tore up my right shoulder, my knees, and my back. Since that wreck I have been unable to do a full sprint. Next came a jet ski accident. Going full speed I was thrown and when you hit water at that speed it’s like landing on concrete. Following that was a severe car accident in which I wrenched my neck badly but I walked away. Surprisingly, I’ve never broken a single bone.

By the time I was 30 my knees were giving out, and my shoulder was losing strength quickly. But I enjoy doing adventurous things, and I was still skiing and river rafting. And when I was 39 my shoulder finally gave out, and I had surgery. It still was quite weak though. Every year I was doing therapy on my knees and they were getting worse, and I always needed my hip adjusted as well. Waking up in the morning, my knees felt like they’d been beaten on with a hammer all night. Two years later I tore my left knee and had surgery. The doctors told me I had very old knees and would need them replaced soon. I believed I would be getting my left knee replaced by 50. Both knees felt completely worn out, and I had trouble keeping up with everyone.

At 45 I made a road trip to Cleveland to visit a friend, and needed knee braces for both legs, and received cortisone shots in both knees just to make it home. The next year I made the trip again, same issues. And finally something happened to expose my real troubles. When I got back I began getting weakness in both legs and cramps high up in my right thigh. My friend in Cleveland is a nurse, and she told me I was suffering from Sciatica. And a month later I awoke with both my legs near completely paralyzed. It took 30 minutes to get out of bed, and I could barely walk. The pain was worse than any I’d ever felt. For two weeks I had to sleep sitting up on my sofa just so I could get up in the morning while they checked my MRI and diagnosed me with 3 bulged discs in the L range of my lower back, and massive arthritis throughout as well. My sciatic nerves in both legs were being pinched and flaring. Multiple muscles in my lower back, hips and buttocks, and into my upper legs were spasming and irritating my sciatic even further.

Prednisone treatments, steroid injections in my lower back and in muscle ranges were used. 12 injections in all, and I was still barely able to walk. At last my back specialist just shrugged and said “I guess you’re now a candidate for back surgery.” The kicker was how nonchalant he acted. It made me incredibly mad that he didn’t try any treatments a regular doctor couldn’t prescribe, and he just gave up so easily on me. My physical therapy was not improving me either. It was then that I decided I would not get surgery. I didn’t believe that the first time I injured my back it was so bad I needed surgery. After all, I went to bed with my back sore but working, and woke up injured. It just didn’t add up. A friend at work happened to tell me about Dr. Gamm and NUCCA Chiropractic. I doubted he could help. I went to nucca.org, I googled nucca and read multiple sites, and at last I agreed to the dinner.

There was logic in the methodology, but I still didn’t buy in. But I signed up, and while talking to Dr. Gamm at the first exam I decided I’d give him a shot. If it didn’t work I could get out early and not be out much more than I was already spending on the medical treatments that did nothing. Well, after my first treatment I had my last physical therapy session the next day. And their comment was that they hadn’t seen my muscles so responsive in all my sessions. It didn’t make sense but there was something. So I went to Dr. Gamm again. And I noticed I could bend my knees easier. Every treatment brought another small improvement.

I’m excited to say that in less than a year after starting treatments I have begun playing golf again. The people I work with have been amazed at how I’ve turned around from the broken old man I had been. I no longer have knee pain when I wake up, and I will not need knee surgery at all. My shoulder doesn’t have the issues it used to either. The plantar fasciitis I have struggled with through the years has improved.

LeAnn has helped me tremendously as well. I do not sleep well, maybe 4 hours a night typically. My problem is that I just can’t calm my brain down. Meditation doesn’t work for me and no matter how tired I may feel I lay down and my brain goes wild. Well, talking to her she recommended I try 5-HTP. At first it didn’t work, and we were both disappointed. But I gave it a second try, and on her recommendation I used it in the morning, and again at bedtime. After about a week of this I started sleeping a little better. I still only sleep about 5 hours a night, but I sleep calmer (less kicking and tossing) and feel more refreshed when I wake.

Thank you Scott and LeAnn, and to all at the center for all you do.


The first day I came to the clinic my blood pressure was 200/100, I had a bad headache. Dr. Gamm did an adjustment first thing and had me rest in a recliner. The pressure went down to normal. I was surely convinced at that point.
My EIS scans were not changing, I had the same areas that were in crisis. Dr. Gamm suggested I journal and make some life-style changes.
He asked me what my goals are, what do I like to do? I should give myself the permission to say "no" when I don't want to do something or are pressured by others to do something. I am 75 and have always felt high stress.
I have journaled over a month. I changed eating habits, cut most sugar, eat more vegetables, less meat and less food. We walk a couple miles a day and started back at the gym in water aerobics. I say "no", now and don't feel guilty.
My blood pressure is low, it would go up too high at times due to stress.
Last week I didn't need an adjustment, I was good!!
Thankfully,

Migraine headaches twice a week-general blah feeling all over every day – stomach upsets-feelings of depression-low energy. Does this sound like you? Well, it was me and it all came on so gradually that I thought it was just life.

It was the two a week migraines that finally sent me searching. I thought in this modern day medicine there must be an answer. There was Dr. Gamm – Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center

We went to the dinner, heard the information, and thought it was worth a try. After the first adjustment I thought “Is that all there is to it?” What have we gotten ourselves into?”

We persisted regular adjustments twice a week, then once week. We tried the vitamins which helped lots. My headaches became fewer, oh yea, I am feeling better. This program is the only difference in my life. WOW! The adjustments, the vitamins, the Gamm’s TLC and ….weight loss. I am a new woman. Wow!

Initially upon coming to Balance Wellness, I was overweight (242lbs), had poor skin color, was generally “tired”. My wife wanted us both to lose some weight, so we agreed to try the Ideal Protein Plan together. Having heard about my kidney disease, Dr Gamm offered to do a free screening to see if I would benefit from NUCCA care as well. We learned that my neck was mis-aligned by almost one inch. Thinking back about how this could have occurred, ten years ago I was sleeping horizontally in a car with my front seat fully reclined. My daughter fell asleep at the wheel on the Interstate going 75 mph. She hit a guard rail and as the car began to spin, I was catapulted head first into the rear windshield, and thrown sixty feet away from the car. The only apparent damage I incurred was the loss of a small patch of hair where my head shatterred the windshield. Other than that, I was fine… or so I thought. An impact of this magnitude was surely the cause of my neck misalignment.

The year following the accident, I developed high blood pressure and my kidney function began to decline. Over the next 10 years, with much medication, I was able to manage my blood pressure and slow the decline of kidney function. As a side effect of the 4 blood pressure medications, I gained weight and lost energy. I tried to exercise to keep the weight off, but could never could maintain the consistency due to a lack of energy.

After 6 weeks at Balanced Wellness on the Ideal Protein Plan, I have lost almost 50 lbs! After 20 NUCCA adjustments, my neck is now only about ½” out of alignment. With the combination of the weight loss and adjustments, I have been able to completely stop taking the blood pressure medication. My energy level is back up, I have been able to exercise more regularly, and best of all…my kidney disease has reversed from Stage 3 to Stage 1 (100% function).

Being a kidney patient, I have had regular lab tests to monitor my condition. So these improvements have been well documented in my lab results. Both of my doctors have been amazed at the improvement. My wife and I are also much more hopeful that we share many more years together!

Thank you Leann and Dr Gamm!

Meeting Dr Gamm and his wife LeAnn has been a life transformative experience. I have been in practice as a chiropractor for 27 years.

I didn't truly understand chiropractic until I met Dr Gamm-and I am so grateful to finally begin the process of deeply understanding how chiropractic releases the innate healing within by removing interference in the nervous system.

Because of Dr Gamm's gifts of healing and communication, his NUCCA Chiropractic adjustments, and his mentorship-I have more clarity, focus, and vitality to take on my purpose at a new level. And my second assessment shows that the arthritis in my neck is already getting better-and my head is on straighter!!

Finally-I am circling back to my calling and getting to the core of wellness. I am eternally grateful to Dr Gamm and LeAnn and the wonderful staff of Balance Wellness and Chiropractic.

So my story goes something like this. 

Back when I was thirteen I noticed that I was not exactly like everyone else in my world. What I noticed most was that I had a hard time processing foods, medications, vitamins and just about everything else through my system. I then began having headaches and a hard time regulating my body temperature along with some lightheadedness and heart palpitations. I went to a few doctors who did not find anything off in my testing so I just went on with life. Within a few years I did not feel 100% the majority of my day but I was young and busy so I made the most out of every day.

In my twenties I had 5 children and pregnancy brought on different issues but none of them stopping me from living the wonderful life I had created for myself.

In my thirties I noticed that I did not have the energy I wanted nor did I get over illness as quick and painless as I was used to and now not only were the symptoms I had getting more pronounced but new ones were popping up. So I again went to the medical field and they found nothing to be concerned with, so once again I went on with life, finding it a bit harder to put my concerns on the back burner but still staying positive that one day I was just going to feel normal. 

I was actually looking forward to my forties as my kids were mostly grown, my marriage was great, and our home building business was successful. Then (in my opinion) tragedy struck! Late March of 2007 I got sick. My symptoms seemed like the average flu or virus infection however I could not get well. I went to my Dr. every couple of weeks or so and she tried new medications, none of them helping in anyway. I was sleeping 16 hrs a day, nothing on my body did not hurt. From joint pain, to muscle pain and cramping, to my spine hurting so bad I let them do a lumbar puncture to test for Meningitis. After about 15 months a blood test confirmed that I had an Epstein Barr virus. The doctors then decided that I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, and Depression, all due to the Epstein Barr diagnosis. They then put me on a slew of different medications which I could not process through my system and I started to have organ issues. This then sent me to a handful of other specialists and more testing.

Over the next 3 years new symptoms kept coming. First it was the loss of circulation in my limbs (they wanted to remove my feet as they couldn't find a pulse), then I started to notice that my ear canal was closing up and that I couldn't move my jaw forward(they sent me to a TMJ specialist). Shortly after that I slowly lost vision in my right eye(eye specialist told me I had nerve damage and there was nothing they could do so just keep putting the steroids into the eye twice a day). So many new issues while dealing with the 2 or 3 year old ones getting worse. I went to well over 20 different doctors and was diagnosed with AV Nodal Reentrant tachycardia and POTTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome) by the cardiologist, Chronic Sinusitis by the ENT Dr., Migraines, depression and a blockage in my neck causing my head pain and eye issues by the Neurologists (who wanted to shoot Botox up into my skull to open that area up every 3 weeks or so), to name just a few.

In March of 2010 I had had enough! 3 years in the medical field, thousands and thousands of dollars later, and what I could only describe as mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual defeat. I made the decision to stop all this insanity and try another route. I went off all the medications and started to look into the homeopathic field. I went to physical and massage therapy, traction, acupuncture, dry needling, and Nephropathy to name a few. I started eating healthier and trying to exercise. I didn't feel that depression was an accurate diagnosis but I tried some counseling, if nothing else it couldn't hurt to get off my chest what I had been up against and to help me work through the guilt I felt everyday for not being the mom, wife, and friend I had always been. Did my symptoms disappear, no but my mind was getting stronger so in September of 2010 I started the Ideal Protein Diet and lost 55 lbs. Did my symptoms disappear, no but my body was a bit healthier. Then in April of 2011 I found Dr. Scott who introduced me to NUCCA. After a nice dinner and a quick explanation of what he does I was pretty excited but a bit skeptical as I really didn't want to get my hopes up once again. A few days and some quick tests later, I had my first treatment. Did my symptoms disappear, yes, not all of them, but yes some did disappear!!!!

Now this is the paragraph I have been anxiously awaiting to write. This is what you all really need to hear, what you want to hear, what is the most important part of all of our testimonies. So let me just begin by saying my first treatment was amazing! I laid on that table feeling so defeated, in pain, my body felt like it was 100 years old, and I was TIRED. Tired of it all. I remember praying while I was laying there, please just let this help a little bit. Then Dr. Scott did his adjustment, told me to roll back over and I thought "that's it" what good could that have done. After standing up I realized what good it had done, I for the first time in years could move my jaw forward and I could see out of my right eye again, it was blurry but I could see forms again. I felt all these muscles release, like someone just took the world's problems off my shoulders. Heat spread through my face and head, and for the first time in years, I felt some relief. I was sold on Dr. Scott, Nucca, and a healthier life style!!

I have been going for treatments now for four months and my body is changing for the better with each treatment. My body now processes everything, the redness in my face and nose are now just a rosy pink, my sight is back, I can pronounce words properly, my eyebrow is back to where it's supposed to be, I sleep through the night and my activity level is getting back to normal. I am very excited about my outcome with Nucca so far and very positive about what's to come in the following months.

I am also very happy to say that my husband and kids have started treatment at the Balance and Wellness Center and that they have all seen vast improvements in their health, mindset and lifestyle.
May 2nd 2011 is a very special day to me and my family. We talk about celebrating it as my OTHER birthday as I truly feel that Dr. Scott and his wonderful center has given me a second chance!

Since the 4th grade I played basketball, football, baseball, and soccer. I briefly tried surfing, and I skateboarded. As I got through high school I added skiing. During these years I had water on the knee in both knees several times. I never broke a bone, but my joints felt the injuries. By 23 I had trouble standing from a crouched position. Then I had a motorcycle wreck, and tore up my right shoulder, my knees, and my back. Since that wreck I have been unable to do a full sprint. Next came a jet ski accident. Going full speed I was thrown and when you hit water at that speed it’s like landing on concrete. Following that was a severe car accident in which I wrenched my neck badly but I walked away. Surprisingly, I’ve never broken a single bone.

By the time I was 30 my knees were giving out, and my shoulder was losing strength quickly. But I enjoy doing adventurous things, and I was still skiing and river rafting. And when I was 39 my shoulder finally gave out, and I had surgery. It still was quite weak though. Every year I was doing therapy on my knees and they were getting worse, and I always needed my hip adjusted as well. Waking up in the morning, my knees felt like they’d been beaten on with a hammer all night. Two years later I tore my left knee and had surgery. The doctors told me I had very old knees and would need them replaced soon. I believed I would be getting my left knee replaced by 50. Both knees felt completely worn out, and I had trouble keeping up with everyone.

At 45 I made a road trip to Cleveland to visit a friend, and needed knee braces for both legs, and received cortisone shots in both knees just to make it home. The next year I made the trip again, same issues. And finally something happened to expose my real troubles. When I got back I began getting weakness in both legs and cramps high up in my right thigh. My friend in Cleveland is a nurse, and she told me I was suffering from Sciatica. And a month later I awoke with both my legs near completely paralyzed. It took 30 minutes to get out of bed, and I could barely walk. The pain was worse than any I’d ever felt. For two weeks I had to sleep sitting up on my sofa just so I could get up in the morning while they checked my MRI and diagnosed me with 3 bulged discs in the L range of my lower back, and massive arthritis throughout as well. My sciatic nerves in both legs were being pinched and flaring. Multiple muscles in my lower back, hips and buttocks, and into my upper legs were spasming and irritating my sciatic even further.

Prednisone treatments, steroid injections in my lower back and in muscle ranges were used. 12 injections in all, and I was still barely able to walk. At last my back specialist just shrugged and said “I guess you’re now a candidate for back surgery.” The kicker was how nonchalant he acted. It made me incredibly mad that he didn’t try any treatments a regular doctor couldn’t prescribe, and he just gave up so easily on me. My physical therapy was not improving me either. It was then that I decided I would not get surgery. I didn’t believe that the first time I injured my back it was so bad I needed surgery. After all, I went to bed with my back sore but working, and woke up injured. It just didn’t add up. A friend at work happened to tell me about Dr. Gamm and NUCCA. I doubted he could help. I went to nucca.org, I googled nucca and read multiple sites, and at last I agreed to the dinner.

There was logic in the methodology, but I still didn’t buy in. But I signed up, and while talking to Dr. Gamm at the first exam I decided I’d give him a shot. If it didn’t work I could get out early and not be out much more than I was already spending on the medical treatments that did nothing. Well, after my first treatment I had my last physical therapy session the next day. And their comment was that they hadn’t seen my muscles so responsive in all my sessions. It didn’t make sense but there was something. So I went to Dr. Gamm again. And I noticed I could bend my knees easier. Every treatment brought another small improvement.

I’m excited to say that in less than a year after starting treatments I have begun playing golf again. The people I work with have been amazed at how I’ve turned around from the broken old man I had been. I no longer have knee pain when I wake up, and I will not need knee surgery at all. My shoulder doesn’t have the issues it used to either. The plantar fasciitis I have struggled with through the years has improved.

LeAnn has helped me tremendously as well. I do not sleep well, maybe 4 hours a night typically. My problem is that I just can’t calm my brain down. Meditation doesn’t work for me and no matter how tired I may feel I lay down and my brain goes wild. Well, talking to her she recommended I try 5-HTP. At first it didn’t work, and we were both disappointed. But I gave it a second try, and on her recommendation I used it in the morning, and again at bedtime. After about a week of this I started sleeping a little better. I still only sleep about 5 hours a night, but I sleep calmer (less kicking and tossing) and feel more refreshed when I wake.

Thank you Scott and LeAnn, and to all at the center for all you do.

I started going to Dr. Gamm the first of February of this year upon a referral from my sister. She had been seeing him for a while and was experiencing some good results. At the time I was in my mind a pretty "healthy" individual with the typical aches and pains of a middle aged male who has worked construction for 28 years. These to me were just part of the aging process. In my mind my only major issue was borderline hypertension that was getting to be more than borderline. A medical doctor had told me that I should probably start a blood pressure medicine to help regulate it. My sister had a similar issue and the treatments helped her to lower her pressure and quit taking medication. I thought that if I could lower mine without taking anything that would be great since I am not on any type of medication for anything and really don't want to be since the side effects of such things can be worse than the problem most times. In the minutes after my first treatment I immediately felt a rested, almost "euphoric" feeling like load had been lifted both mentally and physically. Even now after all these months I still have that feeling right after a treatment. The thing now is that feeling lasts more from adjustment to adjustment. Stress is still stress but I can let it not consume me. I have monitored my blood pressure all along and my dystolic numbers have dropped on the average of from 100 plus to about 75 - all this without medication.

As I said earlier I was accepting these aches as part of getting older. I guess I was "settling" for the shoulder pain and bicep/tricep muscles locking up on me and aching when they were being used whether at work or for fun. I like to fly fish - its my hobby and I enjoy it. The problem was getting to a point that when I held my rod for any length of time my muscles would lock up in my arm and I couldn't enjoy myself for the pain. After several months of treatments this problem has been cleared up and I have pain no more.

Even as I child I have had migraine headaches - probably 2 to 3 a month. Thru my treatments I virtually can say that I don't suffer from these any more. This could partially be related to the shoulder and arm pain being cured and possibly an "un-winding" of my neck muscles and nerves as Dr. Gamm can testify to. At any rate its nice not to suffer from them any more. One thing I have noticed is that the range that I can turn my head from side to side has increased tremendously.

I guess the final things I have noticed are the increase in energy and the quality of sleep that I get. I have always been a very active and energized person but I had noticed a "slowing" down feeling prior to my treatments. It seems now that I have new vigor and vitality - something like the "fountain of youth". As for sleeping, I go to bed at about 9:30 p.m. and sleep soundly until 5:30 a.m. It is a very deep sleep and very rarely do I wake up and if I do I take up where I left off. The only problem with sleeping like this is that I really have to force myself to wake up and then get up!

I am totally impressed with the results I have seen from my treatments even though I am currently not even in "balance" yet. It is like I am a work in progress - I can't even imagine where the benefits and healings will end up! I was looking for help with my blood pressure - got that and received the other benefits as a bonus! I would whole heartedly recommend NUCCA to any one seeking relief from pain and discomfort and wanting a better quality of life.

Hello my name is Asa I'm 13 years old. I started treatment with Dr. Gamm November, 2011 the reason my mom sent me to Dr. Gamm was because I had horrible cluster headaches for almost every day for 2 years. I broke my nose in August of 2009. After I broke my nose I would go home after school and lay on the couch with a pillow over my head because my headaches were so bad, I did this for over a year. After I started NUCCA my headaches started to stop and I wasn't in pain. My mom was told by my teacher that I was talking more and participating in school when I never did before. I was doing things with my friends and when I went home I wasn't laying on the couch all day. I have become very outgoing and more active sense I came to Dr. Gamm. This was all happing about 2 months after I started care. It's been 9 months now sense I started care and I have mild headaches once in a while but nothing bad and the cluster headaches went away and are gone.

Thanks NUCCA

I am glad a neighbor told me about a NUCCA Chiropractic doctor in Colorado Springs. Twelve years ago I was injured riding my house several concussions and a rattled brain left me unable to walk straight for several months. Within six months I was on prescriptions for antidepressants. Even after two years when I finally went off my drugs I had occasional spells of depression. My memory and speech were all affected. The worst was my numbers. I was no longer able to trust myself to balance the check book, I trans posed all my numbers, and I had spells of dizziness and nausea. After five months I no longer suffered from depression, dizziness, or nausea. People say that my speech is not as halted and I feel so much better. I'm looking forward to seeing how great I'm doing to feel after a year of treatment.

I joined NUCCA 6-20-11 for about 3 years I had problems with dizziness and weakness. I had to use a walker or a cane. I had to depend on family and friends to do my shopping. (and still do). I don't have the dizziness anymore but still a little weak. I can tell I'm improving everyday.

I had been seeing a "generic" chiropractor for a painful knee and a very stiff neck and nothing was improving. I was not able to walk more than a block because of the knee, and yet a MRI had said there were no major problems with the knee itself.
I had health locked inside me, but the fact that my head was not in alignment was causing a vast array of troubles.
After my 1st adjustment my neck relaxed, I felt free, and the tension lifted. I was able to walk first two blocks and then four. The muscle strength in my legs and back was increasing and in three weeks I could walk ten blocks. I continued to receive the adjustments and make progress.
I am committed to improving my health as I exercise, prepare healthy meals and maintain a positive outlook. My vision is clear, "I am on a path to better and better health."

"The fog has lifted," were the first words I spoke after my first NUCCA adjustment. Well maybe not the first, I think I said, "WOW!" before that. I am 28 and have felt literally like I was always in a fog or trying to walk in water for as long as I can remember. The last four years I have been battling with what was previously diagnosed as Hypothyroidism and Adrenal Fatigue. I had sinus infections in my younger years and quite frequently had days I just didn't feel good. Low energy, low self-esteem, always in a battle to maintain a healthy weight are just a few of the hills I have been climbing. Here is the thing though, I am very into health and wellness, I even attended school to become a personal trainer.

So why was it that with regular exercise, a great diet in comparison to 95% of Americans, and holistic practices was I not getting better? I was out of alignment! When I saw my body scans and x-rays, it opened my eyes to see that I really needed help. I have been under Dr. Gamm's care for 1 month now and I am ecstatic with my results so far. I stopped taking the two thyroid medications I was on after my very first adjustment (seriously), I further improved my diet by reading, "Maximized Living Nutrition Plans" and I also incorporated more yoga into my exercise routine. I feel better than I ever remember feeling my whole life and I am certain that it is from NUCCA. My senses are more and more alive with each adjustment. Dr. Gamm and his staff are great, always greeting me with a smile!

I was diagnosed with narrowing of the spinal column a couple of years ago.  I suffered with not only back pain, but pain in my hips, legs and knees.  At first, I thought it was my hips, because I could not walk without holding on to something and I could not squat or kneel, and I could not go up and down stairs unless I put one foot on the step and then the other.  I could not stand and do dishes unless I stopped to sit down and rest my back.

When I started at Balance Wellness, Dr Gamm had to raise the adjustment table so I could sit down and then he lowered it to do the adjustment.  After less then 20 adjustments----I can sit down on the adjustment table by myself without help and I can actually finish the dishes without a rest and I can two foot it down the stairs.  I've lost 20 pounds and feel so much better.  My blood pressure is down to normal and most of all, I have no pain in my hips, legs, or knees.

I used to think---what am I going to do when I'm 80?  Will I have to be in a wheelchair?  Will I have to live in a nursing home? 

Thanks to the treatment I am getting at Balance Wellness, I know that I will be able to take care of myself and live a long healthy life, without pain.
Thank you,

Jane M.


Being directed to Dr. Gamm was like an answered prayer for me. For over 30 years I have tried many, many things. For starters 3 regular chiropractors, 1 Atlas chiropractor, my Osteopath, 2 sets of cortisone shots in the neck, 2 sets of phototherapy shots in the neck ,3 multiple sessions of physical therapy, and numerous exercises, I also received numerous gadgets as well as unconventional methods I even tried half a dozen different pillows .

I was miserable most of the time and then the neck pain started to radiate to my shoulders and down my arms. I was even debilitated from the pain and had to resort to prescription drugs. From my first adjustment with Dr. G I have been pain free. I can sleep throughout the night without waking up. I can exercise, vacuum, clean ext. without the fear of pain the next day. Dr. G's explanation made so much sense of why I was feeling the way I was "if the vertebra is compressing a nerve or nerves that feed the organs they are not functioning at the full potential."

Not only am I pain free, I feel better than I have in years and look forward to this holistic approach in the area of my health. Additionally the NUCCA adjustments of my 12 year old grandson have resulted in him being able to discontinue his ADHD medication.

I walked into Dr.Gamm's office an absolute mess. I had a severe migraine, was blinded (literally) by light, my thoughts were fuzzy, my equilibrium off, and had a chronic pain in my mid-back. Everytime I would take a deep breath, I felt like a rib was out. After my 1st adjustment, my head began to tingle, and it felt that way the entire 45 minute drive home. Then I re-emerged from my car a new person, my back pain gone, my eyes no longer sensitive to light, and my thoughts continued to get clearer from adjustment to adjustment. I currently am on the Detox formula, as well as cutting my primary care physician prescriptions for me in half, with my goal of being completely free from all prescription meds by August 9th, 2010, all thanks to Dr.Gamm!

My overall health is improving dramatically with N.U.C.C.A care.  I have had about a 5 year history of on and off again fatigue, anxiety, irritability, and numbness and pain that radiates from my neck to my left arm and from my mid-back to my left toes.  I had an MRI done, x-rays, have seen doctors and other chiropractors for help.  It was a mystery for me to as to how to get beyond a certain point of recovery for my body.  The precision of NUCCA is amazing.  I had so many systems out of balance  (which when you feel like I did was no surprise) and now am enjoying the recovery of gaining peace within my body.  My heart was aged at 55 years old...now I it is 25 years old (my biological age is 36).  My thyroid function is improving and my ability to handle multiple stressors in my life at this time is also improving.  I have done a 30-day cleanse and a liver cleanse along with the NUCCA care.   I now have a stronger, sturdier gate, that carries more confidence and sustenance than what I was walking around with before.  I look forward to healing my body even more with NUCCA and complimentary modalities.  I am a nurse and see our current medical healthcare system failing for many people.  I want to be the one making the decisions about how my body will heal.  There are no threatening side effects from NUCCA.  It is a relief to not have to take a pill or have a procedure done to my body to bring it back to where it wants to be. 

Thank you  Dr. Gamm!

Sincerely, Kristin V. RN


I must admit...I was a little skeptical when I first learned about N.U.C.C.A. How could something so noninvasive and subtle be effective?

During one of my first appointments with Dr. Gamm he discussed a lot of the concepts behind his practice at Balance Wellness. The theories are so simple and make good common sense; such as "top down, inside out". I say this to myself quite frequently now. By putting good things into my body and through his treatments, my body is now starting to heal itself.

I came to Balance Wellness due to severe chronic pain in my neck and shoulders. Medical doctors told me the only thing that I could do, that I had not already tried, was to have the vertebras in my neck fuses together. I certainly didn't want to have to resort to that invasive of a procedure.

My first visit to Dr. Gamm's office included getting a series of x-rays and tests that measure the electronic signals in my body. Wow! I knew I was having problems, but I had no idea how messed up I really was. The x-rays he took (which were much more in depth than the doctors' were) clearly showed where my problems started and why I was in so much pain. X-rays don't lie! Following my initial exam, I received my first adjustment. When I arrived, I had a headache (which is very common for me) and by the time I got off the treatment table, it was gone!

When I first starting going to Balance Wellness, I had been receiving traditional chiropractic care for almost a year. It started with adjustments two to three times a week for several weeks and eventually dropped down to one adjustment every two to three weeks. I did get some relief from it. However, after only three adjustments from Dr. Gamm, I had more relief than I did with all of my traditional chiropractic care.

Over the course of the last few weeks I find that I have less pain, I sleep better, my digestion has improved, and I even lost 5 pounds. I also have so much more flexibility and range of motion. I just completed my 12th adjustment and was amazed at the difference in my x-rays. The changes are shocking! It is obvious that my neck is healing. My jaw has straightened and my nasal passages have opened up more. After all, x-rays don't lie!

I plan to return for more adjustments. I still have more work to do, but I know that through his practice, I can attain optimum health, balance, and wellness.

They say when you aren't looking for something you will find it, which is exactly how I found Dr. Gamm and discovered through his genuine passion to help and heal others the seemingly miraculous N.U.C.C.A. treatments. Three and a half years ago, I lost 50% of the range of motion in my mouth. I could not open my mouth to eat apples, sandwiches, etc. and was in constant pain. I began seeing an orthodontist who fitted me with a splint which I would have to wear 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The splint made me feel very self conscious of my appearance and at times affected my ability to clearly communicate as it caused me to sometimes slur. Initially, I was supposed to wear the splint for 6 months and depending on how the treatment progressed I would need oral surgery to move my lower jaw forward, have teeth pulled and wear braces - none of which would guarantee that I would have full range of motion, relief from the pain, or other issues that I suffered from the degenerative joint disease. The 6 months soon came and went with no improvements, I hadn't gotten worse, but I wasn't getting better. My orthodontist was at a loss on where to go with my treatment plan, so I continued to see him every 4 - 6 weeks for splint adjustments for the next 3 years. I felt hopeless until 3 months ago when I came to the Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center with my sister-in-law to see LeAnn for nutritional concerns that we had. During our initial consultation LeAnn told me that she felt as though Dr. Gamm could really help me with the issues I had been having with my degenerative joint disease. These words were not unfamiliar to me, so needless to say I was leery at first to believe and trust in them, but I realized that after investing 3+ years in my current treatment plan with no progress I had nothing to lose. There was absolutely no pressure to commit to anything, just an opportunity to invest in my overall health and wellness. After getting my x-rays and body scan, I received my first N.U.C.C.A. treatment. Prior to getting the treatment, I was completely drained from sinus/allergy issues that I had that day including a headache and nausea. Immediately after my treatment I felt completely rejuvenated. The sinus/allergy issues that I was having had vanished, but most impressive of all - I could open my mouth! The whole way home and for the next few days I kept opening my mouth because it seemed too good to be true! Three months have passed since that first treatment and it wasn't too good to be true! Since that first treatment, not only have I been able to free myself from the splint that I had become dependent on, but my blood pressure has gone down from 150/110 to 110/74 allowing me to address the problem instead of taking prescription medication to mask the problem, my pulse fluctuated from the high eighties and nineties and is now fluctuating from the sixties to the seventies, I no longer suffer from sinus problems when the barometric pressure changes, I have not had a migraine since I have been getting N.U.C.C.A. treatments and I no longer wake up in the middle of the night with unexplainable anxiety that resulted in many sleepless nights. If I do wake up, I am able to go right back to sleep and wake up feeling refreshed. N.U.C.C.A. has made a huge impact on many medical issues that I had, but it has also allowed me to enjoy the simple pleasures of life like riding a bicycle and eating an apple - the simple things that are sometimes taken for granted. Through Dr. Gamm and N.U.C.C.A., my overall health and wellness has gone 360 degrees and I will be forever grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to live life to the fullest! The Balance Wellness and Chiropractic Center has so much to offer and I am thrilled to share my personal experience, as I know amazing things await those who enter here!

I was told there was nothing they could do for my heart condition by my primary physician and heart specialist, except medicate me and even that may not work - and it didn't. I spent 8 years of coming home from work dizzy, tired, and not feeling well. I was prescribed generic Previcid to try to help with the severity of my heart palpitations (as well as the frequency) and I religiously took my medicine, sometimes - many times - crying myself to sleep at night knowing it really wasn't helping. My husband and I stopped having children and became content with the one little girl we had together. He was afraid labor would exacerbate my already horrible symptoms. Dreams of having a large family went by the wayside.

It wasn't until we went to Spring Spree that we came across NUCCA and Dr.Gamm. He spent maybe 10 minutes looking at my back and spinal column and posture. Little did I know that 10 minutes would not only change my life, but the life of my whole family. I sat in the middle of Spring Spree crying because for the first time in 9+ years, someone said they could fix me without medication, without opening me up, and without doing anything more than simply touching me.

I went in for my first treatment towards the end of the day. I was my usual crudely, dizzy feeling. He laid me down and touched me behind my ear. All I could think of was "was that it?" He then checked me and at that point I knew something happened to me. My dizziness dissipated. He had me sit in a special chair. As I sat there, my body began to shake. As it went away (after about 4 minutes), my life changed. I left the office feeling incredible hope. After 2 treatments my palpitations all but disappeared, my dizziness is gone. The feelings of being sick and passing out are no longer. I am a new person and I owe it all to Dr.Gamm. I honestly think God led me to him and he fixed me just like he said he would. I jumped rope with my daughter, rode on a roller coaster, and jumped on a trampoline for the first time in many years!

I came to Dr.Gamm being held up by my husband and using a walking stick. My kidneys were failing and the doctor had taken me off the anti-inflammatories I was on. As a result, I had on RA with extreme pain and stiffness. After just 2 NUCCA adjustments, I jumped out of bed this morning, ready to go, for the first time in over 10 years. I no longer am stiff or need help to get up out of a chair and have reduced my pain meds by 1/3. I can drive and no longer need a walking stick. My energy and zest for life is coming back and I am so thankful to Dr.Gamm for releasing the God-given ability of my body to heal itself.

After 3 weeks- 6 adjustments, (I'm) no longer stiff when I get up from sitting. I have a lot more energy. I used to feel tingling in (my) hands while driving. Most of that is now gone.

I was diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis in both feet about 10 years ago and have tried several treatments (i.e. arch supports, orthotics, supplements, chiropractic care with nutrition and NET, etc) without successful improvement in my feet.  Although these treatments have been very beneficial for the rest of my body it just wasn't helping my feet.  It was very painful to walk, stand, or do anything requiring me to be on my feet.  I began NUCCA treatments as a last resort for the pain in my feet and to my surprise it has helped tremendously.  I've had 9 treatments so far and I'd say my feet are 90% pain free providing me the freedom to enjoy walking, running, or whatever requires me to be on my feet again.  I still where my orthotics since I have high arches to support the feet, as well as stretch my calves, take my supplements, and have NUCCA treatments once a week. I must say, after the very first treatment I could feel the difference in my feet and the pain in my back and abdomen disappeared.  I would highly recommend the NUCCA treatment before having any type of surgery because it has worked for me.

My name is Carlos

I had the honor of meeting Dr. Scott Gamm on June 13, 2010. I want to let you know, when I met with Dr. Scott Gamm, he explained everything to me in a way that I felt my health problems would soon come to an end. I was scheduled to have a right rotator cuff operation that I have cancelled since beginning care at Balance Wellness. I work as a barber and I couldn't raise my right arm half past my chest. Now I thank God and also Dr. Scott Gamm for his knowledge and abilities in NUCCA chiropractic care. I can now lift both arms above my head. I would like to recommend Dr. Scott Gamm since he is the best doctor that has ever examined me, and let me tell you I have gone to many doctors.

I leaned about Dr. Gamm from my mother, when she told me about him helping her with her headaches. I was surprised because for as long as I can remember, she has not been able to see a chiropractor because of disc problems in her back. I saw what he could do without any major force to the body. Ever since I have been going to see Dr. Scott Gamm, I have been able to stop taking Topamax, my migraine control medicine that I have been taking for years for severe migraines. I also stopped taking my allergy medicine and have immensely limited some pain killers and muscle relaxers I was taking for pain in my back and my knees. One thing I really have taken away from my experiences with Dr. Gamm and LeAnn is how much they want to help me and me my family, not only with the physical chiropractic care, but also with our knowledge about health and what is best for us. I have been able to change my cooking habits and received tips on my general health. Though I still have a ways to go with my treatment, I have noticed changes since I first started my visits. I have always been a fan of chiropractic, but I have never experienced a practice so unique and successful as NUCCA. I do admit that this process hasn't been easy between visits since my body goes though a lot of self adjustments. Some are uncomfortable but Dr. Gamm has taught me how to cope and work through the changes. I have no problem telling anybody that making the decision to receive chiropractic using the NUCCA technique that Dr. Gamm practices will be the best decision they could make in their life. This chiropractic is letting our bodies do what God has meant for them to do. Heal naturally.

Before experiencing NUCCA Chiropractic, I almost always had back and neck pain, which often spread throughout my shoulders, as well. I have pretty bad scoliosis which makes one of my shoulders sit higher than the other. After my very first visit with Dr. Scott, my shoulders were noticeably more even and felt completely different. It was incredible! All of my back and neck pain is gone (aside from the occasional soreness after being adjusted) and I feel great! My posture has improved as well. I've also noticed a boost in my energy levels and a significant decrease in the amount of headaches I've had since beginning treatment with Dr. Scott. The results I've experienced are truly amazing and I would recommend NUCCA Chiropractic to anyone wanting to improve their overall health and get rid of their pain! This type of chiropractic work is really wonderful!

Hi – my name is Daniel. I have been seeing Dr. Gamm since 7/10/2010. Prior to seeing Dr. Gamm, I had a severe balance issue due to an injury to my head. The prognosis was that I would have to live with these balance issues for life. I was not satisfied with that, so I was seeking to overcome my injury symptoms. I heard about Dr. Gamm from my sister-in-law, and she only had a good report. I decided to go and see if he could help. He explained about N.U.C.C.A., and I was interested. I started seeing him for treatment. After the first adjustment, I felt amazing results in my balance. The following month, I had x-rays showing my neck curve increasing from prior x-rays. I am feeling better and doing better with my balance issues. I continue to see Dr. Gamm, as I am convinced I will do even better yet. N.U.C.C.A. has and still is working wonders for me and my family. Thank you Dr. Gamm.

I'm very lucky, that Sam my coworker told me about NUCCA Chiropractic treatments.

In Jul 2010 Balance Wellness did scan of my body and confirmed many existing problems I have. Dr. Gamm recommended that I begin treatment right away. I knew I had to do something however; my daughter's coming wedding swept my extra money greatly. I sat with my husband and we went over our budget again, and after one week I decided to start adjustments. The cost was so small compared to what I was going through, after all what is your health worth.

After a few sessions of NUCCA appointments, my overall health has improved tremendously. I suffer from mild scoliosis and was involved in a car accident that caused me to be out of balance. I no longer suffer from back pain and my posture has greatly improved. I no longer have hip pain and I can walk longer distances than before starting my NUCCA treatments. I feel 10 years younger. Most importantly, I could enjoy the daughter's wedding. I was able to stand the whole day and dance the entire evening without any pain or discomfort. I know I wouldn't have been able to be so physically active at my daughter's wedding if I had not started treatments.

I know I will continue NUCCA Chiropractic treatments to foster better overall health and wellness.

Testimonial

I started with Dr. Gamm my first week after moving to Colorado. I had been in a NUCCA program at a previous location for one month and specifically looked for a NUCCA doctor. The move had increased my pain level to a point that my quality of life was very low. Because I didn't feel like exercising I gained weight. This depressed me every time I tried to find something that would still fit me or caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror. I began to become interested in the cleanse supplements and the nutrition coaching services as well. What a difference in the results when you do it all together in a group. I'm now in much less pain, I am more active and I have lost 25 pound.

Thank you Balance Wellness

After undergoing one third of a 60 N.U.C.C.A. (National Upper Cervical Chiropractor Association) atlas vertebrae adjustment series, my 2nd set of x-rays show a huge improvement in disc spacing of the upper cervical vertebrae. My energy level is vastly improved and I have a more positive outlook on life. At 68, I'm relearning eating habits, exercise patterns, and the great importance of nutrition and water intake. A keen awareness of the 'aliveness' of each moment has been reawakened within me. These life shifts are happening due to my contact with Balance and Wellness Center in Colorado Springs and Dr. Scott Gamm.

The true testimonial lies within Dr. Gamm. He practices what he preaches, having atlas vertebrae axis adjustments on a regular basis with a N.U.C.C.A. practitioner in Denver. In young middle age, he stands tall and straight. He is thin but muscular. Though he goes through repetitive motions of giving over 100 adjustments daily, he does not show fatigue. His attitude is very positive and he exudes a belief system which supports the vitality of life. He stresses the importance of balance in nutrition, exercise, and especially the PATIENTS RESPONSIBILITY in their own healing, health and well-being. The attached picture, which is painted on the adjustment room wall, says it all!

Thank you, Balance and Wellness Center and Dr. Gamm, for giving me the boost I needed in the backstretch of my life. I'm experiencing my being in a new and more vital way.

Dr. Gamm and his Staff Equal Hope, Then Reality

When I first came to see Dr. Gamm I had almost given up. It took me weeks to talk myself into making my first appointment. When Dr. Gamm told me that he could help me I wanted to believe him but I was afraid to let myself hope. I was in a car accident in September of 2009 and my nerves were stretched and damaged in the accident. I have had thousands of dollars of medical treatment and still found it difficult to use my left arm to do simple things.

After two months of treatment my body is healing for the first time in years. I have been able to stop taking 3 medications that I had been taking since the car accident. Instead of taking medications to mask the symptoms, I am receiving treatment to heal the cause of the symptoms. I am feeling better emotionally because I am getting better and I am looking forward to my nerves healing completely.

My hope of feeling better has now been replaced with the Reality that I am better and yes my eyes are filling with tears as I write this.

I would recommend to everyone to try NUCCA treatments by Dr. Gamm. Your body will heal in so many ways that you will be amazed.

Thank you Dr. Gamm for all you have done for me. I would also like to thank your staff for being so kind and helpful and for the dedication that all of you have to improving my health.

I came to one of the guest sessions with a friend who thought the clinic would be good for my health conditions. I was over-weight and had many aches and pains.

I had had a total right knee replacement just three months before and was still using a cane to help with my balance and walking. The majority of pain was gone and I had completed three months of rehabilitation using “pool” and “land” at the rehab center.

Going over the results of the scans and x-rays with Dr. Scott, peaked my interest in working on getting my body and head into alignment. I have always felt that my head was not on straight! I could not walk a straight line in my entire life and always wondered if I were pulled over by a police officer if I would be able to pass their ‘walk a straight line test’! For the first time adjustment, Dr. Scott had cautioned that I may or may not notice any difference, but to my amazement, I did notice right away. I had started developing an ‘old lady hump’ at the base of my neck and back, it is gone! My posture has improved, even though I catch myself slumping on occasion, it is rare. My right leg had some ‘ease of movement’ I had not experienced since childhood! I felt so very encouraged by this change, I wanted to shout to everyone I knew about the wonderful release of stiffness. Over the next several weeks of adjustments, I began to gain strength in my core, I am able to walk without the cane, and felt my head was actually becoming ‘put on’ straight! I had always felt happy for the wonderful life I have had so far, but with the poor health my body had fallen into, I found that I was starting to retreat inside my home and away from friends and family. I was becoming very depressed. Here it is several months later, and I am still feeling and noticing changes. I have felt more strength and energy in my entire body – I am feeling ‘good.’ I have noticed I am able to walk so much better and it even feels like I am walking a straight line! My toes had started to turn outwards on my feet, and now they are starting to straighten out normally relieving some of the stress I had began to feel on my ankles previously; also my feet are not hurting like they use to. My thought process and outlook on life is improving, I do notice with the strength and energy I am gaining from the adjustments, how much happier I feel and the depression is fading away.

I had heard about the program for loosing weight and had finally made the commitment to loose weight, and since I had tried many types of diets and programs before without achieving the results I wanted, due to lack of commitment and other factors. I knew I needed help in keeping on track and Leanne would be a great help with this project.

I started the diet with the knowledge that I was a ‘sugar’ addict and decided to start over the holiday weekend so if I were to get ‘sick feeling’ and headaches, I would not be at work, but home and I could just go to bed! I was so very, very sick from not having sugar, that I was ready to stop on the first day! I had really made the commitment to loose this terrible weight I had gained over the last 10 years and continued with the stage 1 of the diet, it was the hardest thing I have done that I chose to do! Many things in our life time, take over and force us to make decisions after events are in place, but this was a choice I made without an event taking place, it was a free will choice and one that I questioned for the first week of the stage 1 diet! I hung in there and made it through the next three months and lost a good 20 pounds! I did have a few days of ‘falling off the wagon’ and ate too many carbs and did not drink enough water, but I kept going and did not beat myself up for those days. I was feeling good about the weight loss and started to look like I had a waist line. The excess water weight and a great amount of fat just began to fall off! My neck began to look like a neck of a woman instead of a wrestler or football linebacker. I began to feel good about my figure again. I lost two dress sizes.

With Leanne’s help, I began learning more about how the fat is stored and how to get rid of it. I have learned how to control my eating habits, and what types of foods will help strengthen my body and keep me healthy.

Following the program with Leanne’s help has made all the difference in the world. I am maintaining and not gaining back the weight! I have taken a break for the holidays but look forward to starting the plan again to loose another 20 pounds.

Hi my name is Luke; I began coming to see Dr. Gamm in December 2011. I have had chronic back pain and neck pain since I was 4 years old and I am now 11. I have suffered from ear infections, migraines, sinus infections, allergies, stomach pain, and a weak immune system. Although I am an active kid I was always sick and missed a lot of school, from September through December 2011 I missed 11 days.

Since coming to see Dr. Gamm I have not missed any school and my health has improved dramatically and my mom is very happy! I feel like a different kid. I had heard about Dr Gamm from my friend she brought him to our school and he did a NUCCA presentation. I had been asking my mom to take me to see Dr. Gamm for a long time, I am so glad she finally did.

I tell everyone about Dr. Gamm and how he has helped me and about how much better I feel! I wish everyone could come to see him, my brother is coming now and Dr. Gamm is helping him when not one else could. Several of my mom’s friends are now coming and I keep asking my mom when is she going to start?!

I started my treatments with Dr. Scott in March 2011 hoping that N.U.C.C.A. would be the answer to eliminating some, if not all, of my physical symptoms. I must admit that I was shocked when Dr. Scott recommended that I remove the 1/2" lift that I had been wearing in my left shoe for approx. 30 years! Because I value his knowledge, I complied and immediately removed the lift. I was fully prepared to experience extreme discomfort as a result of making such a drastic change. While I have experienced some reaction, the transition has been rather easy which I credit to the N.U.C.C.A. treatments.

My husband and I completed a major landscaping project this year. Without a doubt, I believe that because of Dr. Scott's care, I was able to complete the project with very little neck and back pain. I know that this would not have been possible prior to starting N.U.C.C.A. treatments. I have also noticed that I have fewer headaches.

I have been under conventional chiropractic care for more years than I care to count! I do believe that through N.U.C.C.A., I can expect to see my health actually improve. I know it's not a 'quick fix' for me but I am committed to continuing with the treatments...as long as I am blessed to have such a caring, compassionate, and knowledgable doctor! My sincerest appreciation to Dr. Scott, LeAnn, and staff for making me feel like I am your most precious patient!!

I chose to engage the services of Dr. Gamm and Balance, not out of desperation from pain but more to explore how I could feel even better. A car accident from years ago still had a residual impact with my low back and neck. The Balance X-rays indicated the reason why I was still experiencing occasional discomfort. Within 3 weeks of beginning my treatment the discomfort is non-existent.

I got a nice surprise when I played golf for the first time this summer and discovered I no longer had to compensate for my tendency to hit the balls too far right. My drive is now nice and straight.

I love that I rarely have to wait for my adjustment and the staff is very professional and pleasant.

My health has improved overall since beginning N.U.C.C.A. care with more energy and a better outlook throughout the day. I just feel better. I feel my body healing from the inside out. I look forward to a more positive life and a healthier future. I look forward to the day I won’t begin and end my day with taking medications. My body is just responding better. I’m standing taller, losing weight and doing things that I know I couldn’t have finished if started. It makes me sad when I think of my mother who is 74 awaiting surgery to clear arteries, so she can do things that come naturally, like walking and seeing just to function on a daily basis. I look forward to my appointments. I call it my “me time”. I feel like the power is on, as my Dr. says.

I feel so much better sense visiting Balance Wellness Center My headaches have stopped, my ability to concentrate and memory as well as cognitive problems have improved greatly, my last improvement has been decreased my medications down to two per a day , originally I took six to seven pill ad day for over fifteen years. I believe that my health and wellness are on the road to recovery.
