New Hope Chiropractic Reviews

More Calm and Less Meltdowns

We were having a lot of outbursts at home due to sensory processing issues and anxiety with our 5 year old son. Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris made us feel so heard and came up with a treatment plan for our “road to kindergarten”. It’s only been a few months and we have seen so many beautiful changes in our lives. Our son started sleeping better right away even after the first session. He is more calm overall and is able to use his words when he is starting to get overwhelmed. Long meltdowns have ceased and we are spending more quality time as a family and were even able to take a big trip up north on the plane! As a family we are so much happier overall and thank God that our counselor Bonnie suggested that we try Chiropractic for our son. We have seen the miracle of New Hope healing hands and believe in their ability to heal and care for their patients. We are so thankful.

- A Grateful Mom

“[She] started to become the little girl that we knew was there all along.”

I cannot express my gratitude for all that Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris have done for our family and, specifically, for my daughter Claire. Around the age of 3, we started noticing some behavioral changes in Claire. She was developmentally appropriate, but just seemed very tense and frustrated on a daily basis. Her threshold for frustration was very low and we were constantly dealing with tantrums. On top of the behavior that we were seeing at home, we continued to get reports from school that she was rough with other children and biting children. The biting could have been a result of her being happy, sad, frustrated, or any other big emotion. Regardless, her extreme sensitivity to the world around her was impairing her ability to interact. Claire was impulsive, sensitive, not sleeping well, chewing on her hair and her hands, and had tactile sensitivities. We began searching for help. We knew Claire was a loving, empathetic, nurturing child, but we had to find a way to decrease her stress and sensitivity.

We were told about New Hope Chiropractic by Bonnie Compton. Drs Angela and Chris sat with us and really listened to our concerns about Claire. We knew she didn’t need to be diagnosed with anything, but we knew she needed help. We started our journey with chiropractic care and saw a change in Claire after about a month of treatment. All of a sudden, Claire could verbalize her feelings, decreased the number of tantrums, was able to pull herself out of the tantrum by being more self-aware, and most importantly, started to become the little girl that we knew was there all along. She seems more aware of her surroundings and can now interact with her friends in a much better way. She is less tense and more adaptable. She is a loving, happy 4 year old and we cannot be more pleased with the support and love that we felt at New Hope.

We know our journey with Claire isn’t over. But we can now see the light at the end of the tunnel and continue to support her wellness and happiness. Our family is forever grateful.

Stress and Sensory Struggles in a Middle Schooler

It’s truly amazing how she went from constantly on edge back in February to a much more calm and relaxed demeanor within a few months! Becoming a teenager and starting her last year of middle school hasn’t been easy, along with the rest of her normal daily stress factors! Her Sensory still isn’t perfect or “cured” (New Hope stated from day 1 they could never cure her and we never had the expectation of a cure), but she is doing so much better now vs Day 1. We are seeing more manageable symptoms in the Sensory department. Marisa wasn’t sure how chiropractic would help her when she first started, but now she cannot imagine not going to see her favorite chiropractors each week! Thank you, New Hope, for all of your help and hard work!!

Nursing Challenges and Flat Head

Dr Angela and Dr. Chris are hands down the BEST when it comes to baby chiropractic care in Charleston. My little guy, around 5 months started having issues with nursing. He refused to nurse on one side and because of the many issues that brings, he also started having a very flat sided head. I came to New Hope with some very simple goals for my son and received so much more! My little guy was nursing again on both sides after just a few adjustments and his head shape is now perfect after two months of continued care. His fussiness during the regular infant milestones has decreased and his overall health, wellness, and sleep are so much better after seeing Dr. Angela. New Hope has such a family friendly office, they are always so gentle and sweet with all my kids, who are 3 years old and under. Their technology for scans is fast and efficient and their services are very affordable. I couldn’t recommend them more!

Colic, Reflux and Sleep.”

Dr. Chris and Dr. Angela have been absolutely amazing. As a first time mom to a baby who was really struggling with reflux and gastro issues, I was very overwhelmed and searching for a way to naturally help my baby. She’s been getting adjustments for the past 7 or so months and I am certain they have helped tremendously. New Hope is also more than just chiro care, these two doctors have been my main resource for all things baby health (I consult them more than our pediatrician!) and we are so grateful for the care, support, and genuine interest in finding the root cause of our issues and healing from there. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this practice!

Sensory Challenges

We love New Hope Chiropractic and are so excited to have Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris work on our daughter’s wellness plan. One of our twins has experienced walking and sensory delays due to her position in utero and after her first visit, she was visibly calmer and more herself. Now, after a couple months into her treatment plan, she is more calm, walking more flat, is healthier (not nearly as many snotty noises) and doesn’t need to constantly jump for sensory input. We feel so blessed to have found this amazing team that loves our girls and is constantly finding creative ways to make them feel at ease and help them heal and grow.

Teen Struggles

My son was getting easily overwhelmed and stressed out. He was getting emotional or angry when things would change quickly or things did not go his way. We were having a hard time with any kind of transition and were getting a lot of push back and defiant behavior. He just seemed stuck and we were frustrated and overwhelmed.

I met Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris at an event that I was at and learned of the program that they did called “The Perfect Storm” I watched an explanation online and really saw my son in the stories I heard in that video. I booked a consultation with Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris. Taking him in, my husband and I were nervous and not sure what to expect but Dr. Chris and Dr. Angela made us feel very comfortable and were very patient in answering all of the questions that I had. They were fantastic with my son!
After we began chiropractic treatment – I quickly saw a change in my son. He was able to calm down when upset, and in times of transition and think much more logically without getting really emotional. We are having less stressful days. He looks forward to his appointments and we jokingly refer to them as his “attitude adjustments”.

Great for the Whole Family

New Hope Chiropractic has been one of the best experience I have had before and during my pregnancy. As your body is going through so many changes, they listen to you and your body to help your feel more comfortable durning pregnacy and help prepare for an easier labor. Not only are they great for supporting your body durning pregnancy they are amazing with infants, babies, toddlers and kids. My little guy has had so much progress with the support of NHC adjustments. They really know the body inside and out.

This Place is Different

Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris are two of the smartest, kindest and talented practitioners I know. I am doing SO WELL in their wellness program right now. I am changing by leaps and bounds. I will say, I have had a lot of chiropractic care in my life but their approach and program has helped me immensely. I have NEVER done 3 adjustments in a week for weeks but it’s making a HUGE difference. It’s well worth the time and money to invest in your health. I swear by it and I’m an acupuncturist so I’m VERY picky about who works on me. They are both the real deal.

First Time Mom

I’ve been seeing the doctors at NHC for a couple of years now. When I got pregnant, I knew that I would continue seeing them for my own benefit but had no idea how beneficial it would be for my baby! As this was my first pregnancy I expected the last few months to be super uncomfortable, but I wasn’t at all, and I thank my weekly adjustments for that! They were able to adjust my belly which helped with things like how I carried the baby and ensured the baby was in an optimal position for delivery. I also expected a really long laboring/delivery process but I had a quick and smooth delivery (under 12 hours from active labor to delivery, and less than an hour of “pushing”). I don’t think my first pregnancy would have been as great of an experience had I not been seeing Dr. Chris and Dr. Angela! I highly suggest any woman who is expecting or trying to conceive to go see the doctors as NHC as well!

This pregnancy was different

Receiving care throughout my entire pregnancy (3rd) made such a difference! This time, I did not experience the Sciatic pain or lower back pain which had been debilitating in prior pregnancies. Their attentativeness and awareness through each stage was reassuring. I carried my baby full term, and had my easiest delivery. I attribute much of this to Drs Angela and Chris educating and adjusting at each step. I appreciated their focus on empowering me to listen and get to know my body in all its changes.

“I was desperate.”

I was well into my third trimester with my 3rd baby. I had hip and back pain that just kept getting worse. I kept trying to brush it off saying it was just because I was in my 30s this time and my body was on its 3rd full term pregnancy. Then I found out the baby was breech and seemed to have no intentions of flipping into the correct position.

So at 34 weeks pregnant, I limped into New Hope Chiropractic desperate for relief from my pain and a way to flip my baby over so I could have my 2nd VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean). That’s where I met Dr. Chris and eventually Dr. Angela (she was on maternity leave herself at the time). I never imagined I could feel BETTER in my last 5 weeks of pregnancy than I had for MONTHS before that and the baby flipped head down within a couple of weeks of getting regular adjustments! Bonus points: I had a really great, quick delivery too!

If you are looking for a chiropractor, their family-friendly office is a mama’s dream come true! My kids love coming along to play with Dr. Chris, and I often have to drag them out when it’s time to go.

“I feel like I finally have MY child back.”

I’ve started to write this testimonial for Dr. Chris and Dr. Angela Dixon a number of times, and never know where to start. Our struggles with our 5 year old, Mason began when he was 2 and we realized that he wasn’t speaking. At all. After going through the appropriate channels, and finally getting his speech therapy services, we thought things would be getting better. We had ups and downs, and he began to make gains in speech therapy, but we were still having some trouble in school. Read more

It began with some sensory issues, trouble with transitions that continued through 3k and in 4k. We were getting sporadic communication from his teacher in 4k, and the things she was describing to us about his behavior didn’t seem like our child. He was insubordinate, violent, and angry. I was being called multiple times a week to pick him up from school early. As a teacher myself, I knew that something wasn’t right. He was finally diagnosed with autism in December, and we were hopeful that the school would be able to provide what he needed to be successful. We still struggled. He wouldn’t be able to start SpEd services for a few weeks, and, after observing for a week in his classroom, we realized that he was mimicking student behavior, that the teacher was struggling with how to deal with a student on the spectrum, and that the administration was adopting a very “hands off” approach. After being informed that my very high-functioning child (He was reading aloud and counting to 100 at the age of 4) would be placed in a self-contained SpEd classroom because of his behavior, I considered taking a leave of absence from my teaching job so that I could homeschool him. Finally, in January, a friend of mine suggested we go listen to this talk called “The Perfect Storm”. To be honest, I thought it was going to be a bunch of baloney, but we were at our wits end with Mason, and we knew he was really struggling. He wasn’t happy at school, and it carried over into our home life, making us miserable, too. When Dr. Angela began speaking, I immediately thought “She’s describing Mason and what he is going through! We might finally be getting some answers!” It was incredibly emotional for me, and at one point, I was openly bawling. I made Mason’s initial appointment that night, and the following week, our family went to the office for Mason’s initial scans and evaluation. It was daunting, at the beginning, thinking that we would be driving down to West Ashley three times a week, for something that we were crossing our fingers would work with Mason.
I truly believe that there was a higher power at work during this transitional time. We found Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris at a point in our lives where we felt like everyone had given up on our child. Also, shortly after Mason began chiropractic, we were able to transfer him to the 4K program at a different school, where he began to thrive. All of these things just seemed to fall into place, and Mason began to literally transform. Almost immediately, there were fewer and fewer meltdowns. We weren’t having screaming matches every day after school. He was just HAPPIER. I feel like I finally have MY child back. He’s sociable, smart, funny, loving, and kind. Those are not words that anyone would have used to describe him 5 months ago.
Now, as we are nearing the end of his initial care plan, which we began back in January, it seems bittersweet. Drs. Angela and Chris are the most caring people. Mason absolutely adores them, and enjoys his adjustments, as well as his “play time” with Dr. Chris afterwords! I know that what they have done for him isn’t some miracle cure that magically turned our son into the person I always knew that he was, but it’s hard not to credit them with being a large part of his “recovery”.
I don’t have the words to describe what they have done for our family, but if your child is struggling, and you feel as though there is NOTHING more you can do, please know that there is still hope, and that Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris truly care about making children healthier. We could not have made this journey without them.

“He is a happier kid now too! My son LOVES their office!”

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Angela and Dr. Chris. My son had constant ear infections, sinus problems, and just couldn’t recover after a meltdown. We started going 3x a week to work on his issues and over time I started seeing a huge progression. He started having fewer ear infections and when he did get a cold he recovered so much faster because his immunity was building. He is a happier kid now too! My son LOVES their office. He gets excited walking up to the door! Highly highly recommend!

“Chiropractic Care Changed Our Lives”

For years me and my husband have dealt with discomfort in our bodies that would lead to terrible moods and laziness. When the pain came about we would temporarily “treat” our bodies with things like ibuprofen and would only feel better for hours at a time. Drs. Chris and Angela Dixon led us to the greatness that is chiropractic care and it changed our lives. Our life before chiropractic care is not how they do healing at New Hope, and the side effects we experience is more energy, increased happiness and better health.

Our happy, easy-going, sleeping-through-the-night 5-month-old baby has greatly benefited too! We look forward to continuing an improved lifetime through chiropractic care and are excited to be on this journey with the Dixon’s at New Hope Chiropractic!

“One Of The Best Decisions I Have Made”

Shortly after my daughter was born she began to suffer from a range of medical issues such as asthma, recurrent ear infections, and eczema that took over her whole body. After consulting with Dr. Chris, I decided to seek chiropractic care for my family.

This was one of the best decisions I have ever made. As of today, my daughter no longer suffers with any of these issues! Chiropractic care has changed our lives.

Thank you to Dr. Chris and Dr. Angela for saving and optimizing the health of my family! For this, I am forever grateful.

“My pregnancy took a turn for the better”

The Dixons are WONDERFUL! In my second trimester I moved to the low country and was quite miserable. Not just bc I was pregnant in July but mentally unhappy. I began having anxiety attacks on top of the pains of pregnancy, something I had only had once in my life about 10 years ago. I am also a chiropractor and so is my husband, but he specializes in motor vehicle accidents and I knew, as a pregnancy-focused chiropractor myself, that I needed a special touch by someone with the knowledge and experience with pregnant women. Dr. Angela reached out to me after i posted on a chiro fb page about needing to find someone and my pregnancy took a turn for the better thanks to her. My anxiety attacks completely stopped and my pain was much less. I would have a day or two of almost no low back pain and mild rib pain (I had an almost 10lb baby, there is always some pain :) ) and would so look forward to my next visit! Not just because they treated me so well, but were nice to chat with as well. I highly recommend them and after seeing their amazing work with children I will definitely be referring my child patients with special needs to them!
