I have not been there in a while, but when I did go, Dr. Matt was fabulous! Staff was great, accommodating to my schedule, helpful with the insurance/financial aspect, professional and efficient. Dr. Matt is sooooo intelligent and very capable of explaining what he knows in an easy to understand manner. I never met her, but I have heard Dr. Trish is equally talented! TEN STAR RECOMMENDATION!

I cannot praise Dr. Trish enough! When my baby was born, my midwife took one look at her and said she needed an adjustment and gave me Dr. Trish's name. The next day, when she heard my baby was struggling to eat, she called Dr. Trish for an emergency adjustment. Dr. Trish came in that same day- on her normal day off- to help my baby. She immediately got to work, and my baby's face went from a distorted ball to a sweet baby face. After a few adjustments, my baby went from being unable to use a bottle properly to breastfeeding perfectly! Her foot was also turned up, so her toes were stuck against her shin. In the first visit. Dr. Trish was able to straighten it to normal.
Beyond helping my baby, Dr. Trish had wonderful "bedside manner". She communicated what she was doing well, and made me feel like a friend.

After 3 ear infections, and episodes of obvious neck pain and distress, I took my 3 month old baby to New Life. They drained her hears and diagnosed her with torticollis. After doctors prescribing antibiotics and having no answers about her neck this was such a relief to be heading in the right direction to help our daughter out. After about 4 adjustments the issues with her neck disappeared, and the ear infections did not come back. I highly recommend New Life.

I highly recommend getting in for an adjustment after any type of injury. Getting in after a nasty fall made all the difference between having a great weekend or a miserable one! I slipped on a small patch of ice on Wednesday, was sore but okay until I woke up the next morning, I hurt from head to toe and could barely walk. As usual they got me in right away, one adjustment later, woke up this morning feeling much better! Thanks AGAIN!

I started coming here based on my wife's advice and was glad I did. Having sat at work for many years, I knew it was time for a lifestyle change and Dr Matt helped me understand what was going on with my back and neck, and what we needed to do to fix it. With some changes of my own and a period of adjustments, my upper back and neck are much better and my lower back has significantly improved. I'm overall healthier, sharper, and happier as a result. I'd highly recommend. New Life.

Customer Testimonials

We are new to seeing Dr. Matt. My daughter has been in pain for 2 years due to a bulging disc/pinched nerve. He has given us the answers we've been searching for and we are very confident in the plan he's laid out to get her pain free and keep her that way. The ladies who work in the office are great as well. The whole place has a very family friendly atmosphere. We recommend this office to everyone.


Dr. Trish and Dr. Matt are both excellent chiropractors! I have been going to them off and on since 2005. I have a number of health issues, and they have both helped me a great deal. When my granddaughter was born in 2016 with torticollis, (tilted head), I kept telling my daughter to take her to Dr. Matt. We were amazed - in a short time, my granddaughter's head was on straight! A year and half later, still straight!


Dr. Matt is a miracle worker! The pain in the left side/middle of my back was intense. I was not able to turn to the right. I left his office with 100% mobility, after my first visit. He told me to come back the next day, because the back would tighten up a little bit. He was right. I returned to his office with minimal pain and 90% mobility. After the second visit I was back at 100%. Thank you, Dr. Matt. I highly recommend going to New Life Family Chiropractic for any pain issues associated with the skeletal system.


Dr. Matt is an excellent chiropractor. He has a very caring attitude and listens to any concerns I might have. I have been going there a little over a year and will continue to go there in the foreseeable future.


Can't say enough about how much we LOVE Dr. Matt and Dr. Trish. They get direct credit for our oldest finally learning to walk at 2 1/2. They keep us healthy and moving! Their compassion, knowledge, expertise is amazing!


I've been going to New Life Chiropractic since 2008...I originally started with Dr.Trish .I had a neck injury & was unable to move..went to Doctors who just pumped me full of Meds that did nothing but make me ill! She did an ex ray of my spine & within a couple days I had a diagnosis & treatment plan. Eight years later I am still a patient...they keep me moving so I can have an active & healthy life..They also help me with my asthma which flared up a few years ago. They don't only help with adjustments, but will counsel you on nutrition & exercise, both Doctors keep up on the newest advances in natural health care...They work with all ages..including children & babies. I have most of my family using these Doctors services. I see Dr Matt now because motherhood keeps Trish busy..& our schedules do not always fit. I highly recommend These two Doctors to anyone who is looking for alternative Health care. They are amazing. Try them. You will be healthier for it!


Our newborn was diagnosed with Torticollis when she was 2 weeks new. We had no idea what to do. We heard the New Life Family was great not only for adults but for babies. We gave it a shot and they were excellent. Olivia was one of the worst cases they have seen and she went from a 10 being the worst to a 2. Now that she is almost 11 months, she has physical therapy once a week. I wouldn't recommend anyone else and so thankful for their professional staff and Dr. Matt and Trish


I began seeing Dr. Matt in 2015. My friend was bragging about his approaches years before. Based on the convo with my friend; I had full confidence Dr. Matt could help my back. I went into the office and had an x ray done so Dr. Matt could get to the problem areas of my back. I was bent over and in pain. After a few visits with Dr. Matt my back was corrected. I had been to other chiropractors but never had seen the knowledge that Dr Matt has in his healing techniques. His etiquette and general caring of his patients has made me want to contunue with appointments with him. Visiting a chiropractor is great even when there is no underlying problem. The benefits it does for your health in general is outstanding.


I have been seeing Dr. Matt for a while now and I dont know where I'd be without him! I sit in front of a computer 8+ hours a day and I no longer suffer from chronic headaches, my "old lady hump" is gone and I feel amazing! Thank you Dr. Matt for having such a passion for what you do and caring about your patients overall health!

From Our Website

In this episode I talk about the root of Dynamism, which is tapping into Your Inner Aborigine. The do's and don't of choosing nutrition and why many experts have fallen prey. I discuss why Nutrition Science is like surgery in the year 1650. How a trusted nutrition guru can off the deep end. Where chronic diseases really come from and how to Defeat it with food. In this episode I'm going to explain why eating food that never rots, will shorten your life. I'm going to explain why nutrition experts always conflict with each other, after all, the science they use ain't even human; it's rat and animals.

A. Chiropractic works because you are a self-healing organism controlled and regulated by your nervous system. Millions of instructions flow from your brain, down the spinal cord, and out to every organ and tissue. Signals sent back to the brain confirm whether your body is working as it should. Improper motion or position of the moving bones of the spine may interfere with this vital exchange by irritating nearby nerves and the tissues they control. Precise chiropractic adjustments are intended to improve mind-body communications.


Video 1 of Industrialization of Food. What would happen if we were to start thinking about food as less of a thing and more of a relationship? Food as ecological relationships, not as simple chemical compounds that can be manufactured into a bottle. If you don't have your HEALTH and you don't INVEST in the WEALTH of your PHYSICAL body, what do you have?. Key concepts: How to harness gratitude. Three key decisions we make every moment of our lives that determine our level of Dynamism! You've heard sitting is the new tobacco.
