“My son was a very fussy baby.  He had a few times throughout the day where he was just so uncomfortable that nothing helped.  After going to the chiropractor, he was able to relax and be more comfortable.  I am very pleased with the job that has been done and would recommend it to all moms.”


“I am able to do the things I like to do.  I like to walk and I try to do that every day.  I am able to stand longer without my back hurting.  The Doctor (family) told me I had arthritis and wanted to put me on pain medication.  I knew when the medicine wears off the pain would still be there.  So I called Dr. Dulmes’ office and made an appointment.  I know now that the pain was more than just arthritis.  He helped me a lot.  I can enjoy my grandchildren again.”


“Over a year ago I was dealing with depression, fibromyalgia, and being overweight. Then, on November 7, 2011, following some outpatient surgery, a pre-cancer condition in my esophagus was added to the list.  I had to re-think my whole life.  For almost 3 weeks I could not handle eating anything except liquids.  Slowly, I added small amounts of food each week after that.

After doing some research, I started adding exercise daily to help with digestion and reduce stress.  At first, doing 5 minutes of exercise daily (because I was so out of shape) working up to 30-40 minutes.  Now my focus is on how to decrease the acid in my esophagus and stomach.  The answer was simply less food, less acid.  Caffeine equaled pain for me.  So, gone is the craving for chocolate and diet coke (something I thought I could not live without). 

Now I am almost 60 lbs lighter and I find myself mindful of my choices in food daily.  Moderation in all areas of my life is the answer for me.  I had started seeing Dr. D (as I refer to Dr. Dirk Dulmes of Lakeland Chiropractic) to help with the fibromyalgia and noticed improvements.  Now I am finding chiropractic adjustments to be helpful for the esophagus condition as well.  This is a lifestyle change, not another diet to go on and go off of.  I never want to return to where I was on November 7, 2011 and to think it all started with changing my mind!”



“I started bringing my kids to the chiropractor early on.  I went when I was young so I continued when I had kids.  My oldest daughter when she was young had a few ear infections in a row that medicine from our pediatrician couldn’t get rid of, so they started talking about ear vents.  So after they mentioned ear vents I started taking her to our chiropractor and her ear infections would go away in one or two adjustments in a week without any meds from the doctor.  Eventually, her ear infections weren’t an issue anymore and never were again. 

My youngest also at 7 months old after getting wheezy and raspy with every cold he got was diagnosed with “baby asthma”.  After having to give him medicine that caused hyperactivity and sleeplessness to help with the asthma symptoms, I started bringing them back to Dr. Dirk regularly and he doesn’t get asthma anymore when he gets cold symptoms. 

With my kids overall chiropractic helps with a wide variety of common health issues.  Any time anything comes up we go by Dr. Dirk and the results of just having a better immune system and not putting harmful medicine in them are great.  They are better off fighting these things with Dr. Dirk’s help!”


"In February 2011 I developed pain in my left hip area and neck pain from years before.  My family doctor had x-rays taken and found no problems in my hip or neck, but suggested I go to the therapist.  They did very little for me.

So I told my wife I was going to give Dr. Dirk a chance, seeing I had heard good reports about him.  So I went to “Donuts with the Doc” class and I became more convinced in my mind that this is the route I want to try.  I can honestly say he has been used by his and my God to heal me up to this point.  I thank God and Dirk so much. 

I didn’t think I could ever feel this well again at my age (73).  I can honestly say Dirk is the best doctor I’ve ever had.  Please give him a try if you haven’t already.”


“I started bringing my daughter to see Dr. Dirk once she was a year old because she was having some constipation issues after switching from breastfeeding to a solid food diet. After the first adjustment we immediately saw results (within 20 minutes of returning home!) We continued with her treatment plan of twice a week for a few weeks, followed by weekly and then monthly appointments. We couldn’t be more satisfied with the progress we’ve seen and we definitely have a happier child. My husband and I have always believed in chiropractic care as not just a solution to pain management, but more as a preventative approach toward overall good health and well-being.

My desire to continue with chiropractic adjustments with Dr. Dirk during my second pregnancy further supports my belief in this balanced, holistic approach to leading a healthy and active lifestyle. I have continued to maintain my treatment plan and as my due date quickly approaches, I have increased my monthly visits to bi-weekly appointments in order to make sure my alignment and body are again ready for labor. As a result of the wonderful care and gentle adjustments by Dr. Dirk throughout my second pregnancy, I can honestly declare that I have been more comfortable (back pain free!) and felt more energized and balanced compared to my first pregnancy.

Within a week of my second child’s birth I plan to have both her and myself adjusted by Dr. Dirk since the entire birthing process can be traumatic on both mom and newborn. I truly believe in what Dr. Dirk does as a professional and how his chiropractic adjustments are gentle and effective, even on his smallest and youngest patients. The entire staff at Lakeland Chiropractic is extremely accommodating, welcoming, and friendly.”


“I wanted to share my experience with chiropractic treatment during pregnancy.  I started my 5th pregnancy just after my 35th Birthday. I had been a patient of Dr. Dirk for 2 years prior. I started seeing Dr. Dirk after losing my 3rd pregnancy at 17 weeks. 

Some of the differences I noticed while seeing Dr. Dirk during my pregnancy was a lot more comfort. I had 2 children at home ages 7 and 4 and I had 2 miscarriages in a row.  My last successful pregnancy was when I was 31 years old and I remember a lot of sciatica pain down both of my legs (almost unable to walk at times), incredible heart burn and overall fatigue all the time. During my last pregnancy my body still had some aches and pains but I was able to see Dirk, get my adjustment and have instant relief. I have never had back pain during pregnancy. However, Dirk did help my shoulder pain that was coming from my neck and he kept my hips, knees and legs feeling great.

I love to walk and I continued with no hesitation my entire pregnancy.  I remember trick or treating with my kids for 4 hours straight only 12 days prior to delivery.  I can’t stress how important your posture needs to be maintained at all times and it is hard during pregnancy. I also remember sleeping so well even in my last month.

One of the best perks I did notice is I was able to successfully breastfeed our baby. I never made enough milk with our other 2 children. I do not believe this is coincidence. 

Dr. Dirk has helped me and my family so many times over the last 3 years.  My kids have been healthy and I can always count on feeling better after an adjustment. I was once strongly against chiropractic care but as an ER nurse I strongly encourage it for my family, and patients in all seasons of your life.”


“I found out I was expecting my first child in May 2012. I had been receiving chiropractic care prior to my pregnancy and I always felt like a “million” bucks when I left the office, so there was no doubt in my mind that I would continue the care during my pregnancy. 

Words can’t express how great I felt during my pregnancy.  I had very minimal nausea early on, but that was really the extent of my uncomfortableness. A few of my friends who were pregnant at the same time and weren’t under chiropractic care had a lot of issues with nausea, sickness, back pain, and not being able to sleep. I can honestly say that I didn’t have back pain, wasn’t sick, and slept great at night. 

My labor and delivery of my baby girl was just as perfect. I had heard so many horror stories about how painful labor can be, but mine was truly the opposite. My labor was quick and delivery was even faster. Within 15 minutes of pushing, my beautiful baby girl had arrived. I did not experience any back pain during my labor and I found the whole experience quite beautiful.

My daughter was born quite healthy. She is now 3 months old and I couldn’t have asked for a better baby. Since she was 2 weeks old she has been sleeping pretty much throughout the night. She eats great. She is not fussy. She didn’t have any problems with colic. My daughter is developing and growing beautifully.

I believe that my positive experience during pregnancy and labor are definitely a result of my chiropractic care. Any woman who wants to experience a healthy pregnancy, decreased pain and nausea, quick labor, and the birth of a healthy child, needs to look into chiropractic care. I highly recommend it!”


“I was a desperate mother of a 3-month old who cried nonstop from birth. I was told he was just colicky and would outgrow it. I tried every possible remedy- probiotics, gas drops, I stopped eating dairy and all spicy foods, certain bouncy chairs, and even a prescription for acid reflux. Nothing worked. I heard about Dr. Dirk from our plumber. I started taking my son and noticed a vast improvement. I also started taking my two older children regularly.

Dr. Dirk is gentle and patient and has good rapport with kids. He has a wonderful staff. I would highly recommend Lakeland Chiropractic and Dr. Dirk for your family. He has certainly helped mine.”


“My daughter was not able to be a kid. She would have to stop playing because she was short of breath. If she went outside when the weather was hot or extremely cold, she would have to take a treatment. She was on 3-4 medications a day and started missing class time to take her treatments. She also was starting to become very self-conscious about having to take her treatments.

For the first couple of months since starting chiropractic care, we noticed a decreased need for her medication treatments. She is now completely off the nebulizer and is able to use an inhaler when she needs it. She’s in control now, not her asthma. She can be a kid again!”
