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.

Dr. Matt is a fun guy and he does a good job.

Josh has suffered over 10 years from inoperable central canal stenosis. After many visits with different orthopedic surgeons, therapists, and chiropractors, he was told he would have to live in pain and walk with a cane for the rest of his life...

Started going for headaches last May - I can't believe how much it has helped me. Friendly staff. So glad I was referred to New Life.

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.

I came in as a skeptic, but needed help after a fall. Dr. Matt worked to get me right. The best part was that he also took care of a pain in my back that I had suffered with for months. I had been told by multiple doctors that it was something I was going to have to learn to live with.

I thank God for bringing me to Dr Matt! If I hadn't had that fall, I would still be suffering daily with terrible back pain.

I get such anxiety taking my 4-month-old anywhere for fear of him crying and disturbing others—not here! The atmosphere is calm, welcoming, and most importantly—family-friendly! I just had my 4th visit and I am already experiencing less aches and pains, and I feel taller because my posture has already improved so much!

Absolutely Love this chiropractor center. Both Dr.s Trish and Matt are amazing. Dr. Trish works on my daughter, has been her chiropractor since she was 3 weeks old. Just amazing. Dr. Matt helped correct my sacrum after giving birth and also has made vast improvements in my cervical vertebrae in 3 short months. Was going 3x/week, and am now only going 1x/week. The results speak for themselves. Thank you so much to these two! Highly recommend both of these Doctors!!

Our family has used New Life’s chiropractic services for many years. They are truly a family chiropractic center! My children love getting adjusted and the asjustments have helped keep them healthy. Dr Trish and Dr. Matt are wonderful with children, as well as excellent chiropractors. In addition, they make scheduling easy and flexible. The office staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend their services.

Dr Trish is the best! My son has a flat head due to primarily a traumatic birth. My pediatrician gave me an order to get a consult about a helmet since it was severe. I thought my only option would be a helmet which we really did not want to do. The cranial work Dr. Trish has done has been unbelievable! In 3 months (with breaks due to weather and illness) he went from severe to moderate and her work isn't done! We are still seeing great strides! She has also help calm my mom guilt. Parents out there know helmets are not the only option out there and get in as soon as possible. You will be so happy with the work she does and how knowledgeable she is!

This place is the best for the whole family! They have helped us with everything from old injuries, to car accident recovery, and from colds to sleeping issues with the kids. I recommend them to everyone who needs care or wants to stay well!

After complaining to my friend, Tami, she recommended New Life Family Chiropractic Center. I was skeptical after seeing an acupuncturist which relieved my pain for 48 hours.

I could barely get out of my car, when meeting with Dr. Matt. My condition was so severe, Dr. Matt was willing to see me on Saturday (which the office is closed).

I didn't realize at the time how much Dr. Matt was willing to get me pain free at that time. Thank you, Dr. Matt!

I have been able to walk, sit, work, sleep and even return to the gym pain free. I continue to see Dr. Matt when an adjustment is necessary.

Shortly after receiving treatment, I brought my daughter for a consultation before she began to see the benefits of Dr. Matt care.

The great thing was that our insurance covered our treatments!

Thanks to Dr. Matt and his wonderful staff who have gone above and beyond to teach us a healthy lifestyle and make us feel as family!

After suffering for weeks with Sciatica a friend gave me the phone number to call for Chiropractic care. After eight visits with Dr. Matt Hammett, I can honestly say that I'm 70% pain free and feel GREAT in comparison to a month ago. Pain pills didn't help, but the chiropractic "massages" most certainly did!!

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!

The Best Doctor I've ever met!
After meeting many doctors Dr. Matt was the one who helped me a lot. I already have more than a year of receiving therapy and I feel the best. When I started going I went with a knee pain and in a few visits the pain was no longer there.
My husband started two years ago, he went with a hard shoulder pain more than two years with that pain and like me in a short time that pain was gone.
My son is 8 months old and he had knee problems from playing soccer. Dr. Matt helped him a lot! And now my son gets happy every time I tell him we have an appointment!
He is finally an excellent doctor 🙂

God has blessed Dr Matt and Dr Trish as His own miracle workers. Every time I lay on the chiropractic table and I get adjusted, all the pain I have been feeling instantly leaves my body and I feel relief from whatever is ailing me! They are both kind, caring and fun people. Highly recommend visiting these amazing Doctors!! I know I will continue to visit them.

If you are looking for a new chiropractor you can STOP your search. It is going to be New Life Family Chiropractic Center. I promise you will not be disappointed. Numerous of my friends and family are now patients of New Life and not a one of them regret their decision. I have been to quite a few chiroprators in my life time, but never have I been treated so kindly and saw true results. Dr. Matt is very personable and knowledgeable in so many areas. You will feel apart of a family that truly cares about you and wants the best for your overall health. You can't go wrong with New Life!!!

New Life Chiropractic has saved me from neck/back surgery. My mom was introduced to them and when I was not able to work or function she took me to see Dr. Matt and his team. They were very kind and gentle and caring. I walked out of his office on my own. I have been with them for 2yrs and it's been the best choice for me. No more meds/chemicals! I have referred others to him and his team. I would highly recommend them for you and your family.

I dealt with back pain for years and refused to go to a chiropractor. You know how people don't consider chiropractors 'real' doctors. Well after my doctor took numerous x-rays and told me there was nothing she could do, my daughter in law talked me into going to see Dr. Matt. One x-ray and he explained what was going on. I've been going for about 3 years now and cannot believe the difference. My mom was also having pain and I talked her into going. She too couldn't believe the difference.
And the staff is wonderful. They are so friendly and always have a smile on their face. They also are family friendly. So glad that I found Drs. Matt and Trish. I would recommend them to everyone!

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.

I walked in a couple months ago with a severe neck injury that would probably require surgery. Dr. Matt and his staff took great care of me, and, best of all, no surgery!

David HoekstraDavid Hoekstra

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.

Definitely recommend visiting New Life Family Chiropractic where their service is as excellence as their heart for people. Dr. Matt is a wealth of knowledge which he chooses to use for the benefit of the people he serves. I've been coming for years & love it.

Dr Trish has been a lifesaver for me through all of my pregnancies! She also makes my children feel comfortable and loved when they are getting adjusted. I can't recommend New Life enough!

Feel 10 Years Younger – two adjustments to breathing more fully, walking upright, movement side to side vast improvement…plus spring back in my step! I fell in love with chiropractic care and the modest but truly gifted Dr. Matt Hammett. I have a 50 year lower back injury, osteoporosis in mid-back section and arthritis in my neck. Dr. Matt explained all three different types of injury or conditions to me at length and put a plan into action to relieve or arrest each. SERIOUSLY after the second session I felt so much better, life changing better to take a line from Princess Bride movie, “If you want I could fly”. I had my three grandchildren with me that day and needed to stop after the appointment at the grocery store on our way home. I got out of my car to walk into the store and it struck me that I was breathing more deeply, I had my younger gait back to my steps, and my neck and back were not in pain – I was dumbstruck with relief. Tears of joy ran down my face. My grandchildren asked if I needed help, when I told them why I was crying they jumped around happy for me! Please go see Dr. Matt, this man embodies intelligence, training, and strength of character; he is most kind to share that with his patients. Thank you Dr. Matt; I am your new personal chiropractic cheerleader! Go see Dr. Matt today

Friendly and knowledgeable! I was really messed up from a fall. Dr. Matt patiently worked on me. He even relieved the pain in my back that had been ongoing for months. I was not a fan of chiropractic because none had ever helped me. Dr. Matt is totally different. He gave me help and hope!

Hey moms with constipated babies! Did you know there’s a chiropractic adjustment that can help with that? We were in to see Dr Trish for an adjustment for my 7 month old and I also expressed concern about his constipation. She explained the adjustment and checked if that area was out of line, and sure enough, it was! It worked like a charm and he had the poop we were finally waiting for a few hours later. Chiropractic care has so many benefits, and no question is too “silly” for Dr Trish. I appreciate her advice on all levels parenting, health and education!

Can’t start by saying That Dr Matt is the best!! I highly recommend him. His staff is very friendly and make me feel like I’m at home. My life of pain has very much disappeared and I can’t thank him enough. !!

I cannot thank Dr. Matt enough.

When I first saw him I went because I was experiencing tingling and numbness in my extremities. I went the traditional route to the point of seeing multiple neurologists and getting EMGs done. They were zero help. 5-6 visits with him I’m completely symptom free and will be a long term patient.

Unexpectedly I visited his website and saw he has a podcast. I gave it a shot and am completely hooked and binged 15 episodes in a few day span.

I am a major podcast fan and over the years when listening to health podcasts and experts I always would say “I wish these experts were close to home.” Now unequivocally can I say we have one in Dr. Matt! Keep up the work and if you are his patient his podcast Dynamism biohack is a no brainer for you (and for those who aren’t his patient as well).

Dr. Hammett is a wonderful and caring chiropracter. I started going there over a year ago for back pain. He helped me immediately. He is very knowledgeable and is always showing me differerent stretches. His office is very friendly and I never have to wait longer then 5 minutes. I give Dr. Hammett and his office 5 stars.

I have always suffered from lower back chronic pain to the point the doctors just wanted to just give narcotics to help with the pain. I never really took them and just went through life in pain with every day feeling worse. I’m only 38 and felt like I would be in a wheel chair in ten years. I felt tired and frustrated looking for decent medical treatment that didn’t involve surgeries or pain meds. I was tough so I kinda gave up on myself. I was recommended by a friend that told me that New life had changed their life. So I decided to give it a try. There treatments don’t involve costly surgeries or pain meds that just numb the pain for a bit. I was afraid no one would help me. But a few months after treatments, I was feeling like I could actually function like a normal adult. I didn’t even realize the pain I was going through before was actually making me feel so depressed. I can now actually do things I couldn’t do before going to Dr Mat. I’m so happy I can live like a 38 year old. Thanks Dr Mat and your lovely staff for helping me!!

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!

Jeanette GodbyJeanette Godbypowered by Google

My son just turned 3 and we've been seeing doctor Matt since he was 6 months old. Around 6 months old my son began trying to crawl but no matter how hard he tried he just couldn't. I'd watch him struggle and I could tell he knew what to do but his body just wouldn't move for him the way he needed it to. After his second adjustment my son started crawling PERFECTLY the next day. The adjustments also drastically reduced his screaming in his carseat. Since then we've regularly seen Dr. Matt as an entire family. After we had our daughter, who is now 1, we immediately had her in for adjustments and neither of our children has ever had an ear infection. I honestly believe this is because of the adjustments. (You can look up online how it helps.) I highly recommend NewLife and Dr. Matt! The whole family will benefit from GOOD chiropractic care!

Veronica MaldonadoVeronica Maldonado

I have had back issues for about 10 years and have seen a couple of chiropractors and none of them were half as good as Dr.Matt. Dr.Matt is a God send!! I was in excruciating pain and in 3 days I went from a 10 to a 0!! He is the best at what he does and is very informative! I love everything about his approach to his profession. If I could describe him in one word it would be AWESOME!!!

Getting my life back...no understatement.
Living with chronic back pain for over 15 years, then I couldn't live with it anymore. I had bad experiences in the past with different Chiropractors, so it has taken this long to find a solution to my pain.
Found Dr. Matt Hammett and decided to trust him to do treatments.
So far (after a few weeks) it has already made a big difference for me.
Different approach to care and caring staff add up to a "New Life".
Namaste.
Update: It has been 6 months since I found Dr. Hammett at New Life Chiropractic. I am now sleeping at night and having many flexible moments that I had not had for too long to mention!
I am so grateful for his help.
Recommend them highly.
Namaste.

New Life is always welcoming to my family. Even when I bring my two boys (3 and 1) every one in the office is patient and kind to them and to me.

The care we've received has always been amazing. Dr. Trish Hammett was a God send when both my boys were born. My oldest son had a very difficult time nursing, and after Dr. Trish saw him he immediately latched on. My second son was breech a week up to his arrival, and going to see Dr. Matt was the best decision I think I made that pregnancy. He turned head down 2 days before he arrived. Again, Dr. Trish came to visit our second baby to help with nursing.

Since my childrens birth, I've gone to New Life. I really love all the care they give to my family.

If you are looking go here. They are amazing. Very friendly and treat you like family. I recommend to all my friends and family. So far Matt is really helping my pregnancy induced carpal tunnel im having issues with on my 3rd pregnancy. My 1yr old and 2 yr old just went for the first time today and they did great. Ive been to other chiropractors and this is where the family is staying. I feel they are definetley helping my pregnancy and I cant wait to get started on normal care after with the new baby.

Jane ReedJane Reed

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!

Luan JacksonLuan Jacksonpowered by Google

Dr Trish is amazing!!! She is the first chiropractor I have been to who truly helps me. She doesn't "just adjust", she heals. Other chiropractors do the same adjustment each time, Dr Trish adjusts her treatment to meet the needs of my body. I always leave the office having been helped. She is so good that I drive for 4 hours to have an appointment and I have referred people to her who live hours away. We all feel she has an intuitive gift. Thank you, Dr Trish, for the gift of health

Today I've been visit with Dr.Matt for about 2 months and I have to say I am honestly seeing results! I'm seeing a further reach that I thought I wouldn't get back �

It’s been over 2 years that our family has been seen by Dr. Matt! The office ladies are all still the same and wonderful as ever! We have crazy schedules and they always accommodate us and with a smile! Dr. Matt has helped us recover from injuries, many illnesses, surgery, birth issues, being old issues, and gives us overall “just feel better” vibes! (There are 5 of us that visit Dr. Matt, 2 adults and 3 children) I was nervous when we moved to NWI and needed to find a new Chiropractor but Dr.Matt has gone above and beyond for us, even talking to our past dr to help us feel comfortable and adjust us the same! I’m editing this review to say I still recommend them whole heartedly, as it gets better with time!

I'm not super into Chiropractic care, but my wife asked me to go. We all know how that ends right fellas? Anyways Doc was great. Gave me a heal lift and shot me some tips for how to sit at work. Very happy! The wife has some pretty bad back issues and she has never had a treatment plan. Other offices just adjust her super fast. New Life has her on a treatment plan to correct and reverse her back problems. Pretty cool – two thumbs way way up!

Coming here got rid of my chronic migraines and back ache. They were able to find why my husband was having seizures and fix it and when my son was baby to his toddler years he would get ear infections every few months and after one adjustment he never had one again and he’s turning 7 in a few months!! They are amazing!!!

Crystal BishopCrystal Bishoppowered by Google

Ive been going now for a month or so and today brought my whole family. Im pregnant and my midwife recommended I go here. I can start with the front staff. They are all super friendly they greet you and make sure you are taken care of right away. They all make you feel comfortable and like family. The atmosphere is totally relaxing and kid friendly. I was adjusted so far just by Matt. I needed appointment times at 5:15 so my husband would be available for the kids and they are very understanding. I even had to reschedule once and they were not mean about it exactly the opposite they just got me rescheduled with no hard feelings...for me thats important. Life happens with kids and it helps to go to someone who understands. As for my adjustment id been previously to two other chiropractors and im going to stick here. He is professional and friendly and will answer your questions. I can tell he has a passion for what he does because he definetley has shared some interesting insights in chiropractic care that I didnt know. I confessed I was a stomach sleeper and he quickly told me to break that habit which is honesty I appreciate so much. There arent many places I will say care about your well being anymore, and im happy I can say that so far here they care about your wellness over your dollar. Im so glad I was referred and I send all my friends and family to them as well.

I recently started bringing my 8 week old daughter to the office. She suffered from colic and reflux. After just 1 visits I noticed such a great change in her eating habits, as well as sleeping. We are on visit # 3 and I am so pleased with the results. Office staff is also very friendly and helpful. Absolutely would recommend.

Scott-Allison CurrinScott-Allison Currin

Dr. Matt is AMAZING!! My son was complaining of stomach issues every day & we did a lot of test-no answers, he rarely conplains anymore. We've got him off all his meds, no longer needed. My oldest daughter would complain about neck and back problems, no longer an issue. My youngest daughter has special needs and her reflux has completely gone away. Her mobility is so much better. It was wonderful finding a chiropractor who was comfortable treating even the smallest of our children up to us. He is thorough but respectful of your time. I no longer have to take meds regularly for frequent headaches. We go for regular maintenance now, just as you do for your teeth, car etc to keep everything in good shape. I can't recommend him enough! The office staff is so great and works to meet your needs as well. You won't regret going!

Veronica OlveraVeronica Olverapowered by Google

Melinda Serrano GrangerMelinda Serrano Granger

Dr. Hammett is AMAZING!
Over 10 years ago I broke my ankle in 4 places. My Dr. did a surgery and pieced it back together by using 2 plates and 11 screws. Its caused some pain here and there over the years. After the surgery my ankle was never the same again. I had a severe lack of movement in the ankle.
Last week I had excruciating pain, that sparked up with no warning or any cause I could think of. The pain disappeared for a couple of days and then came back a hundred times worse! The pain was so bad it dropped me to the ground in tears. Orginally the Dr. who preformed the surgery said if I have pain in the future they will have to fuse my ankle. Which meant no movement in the ankle and I would most likely walk with a severe limp. I was dredding calling the surgeon to talk about having my ankle fused. I took a long shot and contacted Dr. Hammett. Thank God I did 😁 he helped me prior to all of this with my back.
He preformed an ultrasound on my achilles tendon to break up some scar tissue that could have been causing my pain. After one treatment I walked out completely 100% pain free!!!
He suggested a couple more treatments to be on the safe side.
Honestly I would do anything to not feel that type of pain again.
Honestly I wasn't sure if he could help me or not, my long-shot paid off!!! I have more movement in my ankle right now than I have had since the surgery..... I feel like I can actually run! ....... pain free!!!

Thank you Dr. Hammett

Dr. Matt and his kind staff have been a blessing to our entire family! 🙂 We discovered New Life Family Chiropractic on our search for chiropractic care, and are so glad that we did. Dr. Matt and Dr. Trish are now caring for all of our chiropractic needs. We highly recommend them to anyone that is searching for a chiropractor.

So, this has nothing to do with their practice, tho the docs are amazing. I used the washroom and was sooo impressed. As a parent, it was an “awww” moment. Clean restroom, baby changing station, they have a garbage can specifically for diapers and even a sign saying to take a diaper. It’s the little things. I’ve never ran out of diapers but I’ve ran out of wipes before and this was a great thing to see. The toilet also has an attachment for little kids to use and a step stool for them to wash their hands. Talk about a family friendly place. ❤️❤️

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.

New Life is amazing. I have always been greeted with kindness and treated with respect by everyone in the office. Dr. Matt and Dr. Trish are both incredible at what they do and are easy to work with. I have brought my baby here since she was 2 months old and I go myself too and don't plan to stop anytime soon. I highly, highly recommend New Life to anyone looking for a chiropractor!

Dr. Hammett is awesome, love going to his office his staff are always so kind and friendly, my x-rays showed things that were wrong that I had no idea of so Dr. Hammett has been helping my body realign and heal and he explains so well why he does what he does and why it's important, I also used to wake up with headaches almost every morning but since I've been going to him they have gone away!

The benefits provided by Matt & Trish Hammett go beyond Chiropractic service. If a person scans through their website, it can easily be determined this Chiropractic team and their staff have embraced a body, mind and spirit approach to whole health. They are accessible on radio, TV, online at their website and through nearly every social media outlet. If that's not enough, Matt Hammett is board certified and the only chiropractor in the area that holds this distinction. Just going to their website alone, one will be overwhelmed with the wealth of information available on relevant topics that encompass all stages of human growth and the possible conditions that detract from feeling optimal health, just outstanding!

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

Great service all the way around.

Dr. Hammett is truly a wonderful chiropractor who is very dedicated to helping individuals with various issues. I have been fortunate to find him as he has helped me on my road to full recovery over the past year. He is very knowledgeable and promotes a healthy lifestyle.

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!

We began our chiropractic journey last year when our 2 month old daughter was diagnosed with torticollis. She saw Dr. Trish every week for about 3 months and made huge improvements, (yay no helmet). Next my husband decided to give chiropractic a try, after seeing 3 doctors and 2 different rounds of physically therapy had not helped his lower back pain. With the help of Dr. Matt now he has been noticing great improvements in his back pain. So I decided I would go as well just for the overall heath benefits. Currently myself, husband and daughter all see Dr.Matt and we are so grateful we found New Life Family Chiropractic!

I received a concussion from a carjacking last week. My husband told me to call Dr. Matt and get in to see him the same day. They got me in. I was in a whole lot less pain the next day than I would have been. He also helped me through both of my pregnancies. I cannot say enough about New Life. I honestly have never been a fan of chiropractor's. I've been to my share that say, oh we have a $3,000 plan. Dr. Matt is more concerned about solving the problem and then maintenance. Dr. Matt is the best and has changed my opinion of chiropractic work. You just need to find one that actually works. That is Dr. Matt.

Dr. Matt & Dr. Trish are nothing short of amazing! They have helped me so much over the years. My quality of life is better because of the service and care that they have provided me. If you're thinking about making an appt., don't think, just do it! You won't regret it!

Patricia LonghiPatricia Longhi

Dr. Matt is fantastic. Always ultimately accomplishes pain relief for my husband. I will continue to highly recommend him.

I have been rejuvenated, from not being able to function, to doing every day tasks. I still have pain, but its a lot less. Just wish he could do house calls...lol.

Luke PiersonLuke Pierson

I work in the medical profession where there is lots of heavy lifting. I have had a bad back for years because of an injury. After a few adjustments, I feel like a new person. Thanks Dr. Matt.

Dr. Trish fixed my back/hip problem back in 2007 and Dr. Matt keeps everything feeling great with regular treatments. I travel 17 miles to get here and it’s worth it.

First he helped my husband with his neck and back, then it was me and now It's my daughter!! He is very knowledgeable and listens to you and your concerns. The staff is wonderful as well!! I highly recommend this place!!!

Dr Trish has done so much for our family! My son had severe eczema as an infant and after not getting much help from our Ped, I took him to Dr. Trish. He was so miserable and ultimately was diagnosed with failure to thrive. Dr. Trish helped diagnose the cause of the eczema and within weeks of removing the offending foods from my diet (I was nursing him), his skin cleared up. He hasn't had any issues since. A few years later my daughter was diagnosed with middle ear fluid that was causing minor temporary hearing loss. After taking her to Dr. Trish for two weeks, her repeat hearing test with the audiologist showed no issues. So awesome! I finally decided to be a patient myself. 🙂

Dr. Matt fixed my 45K issue
About 2 years ago, randomly I started to feel ill. It was a weekend of stomach issues which later morphed into a migraine and incredible pain behind my ears. I ended up leaving work that day, driving myself to emergency clinic and received a drug to get rid of the migraine that was presumably causing all of this. The pain never went away, and it only morphed into low grade fever, inability to open my left eye and a midnight ride to the Hospitals Emergency Room. Once admitted, I was kept overnight to bring down my incredibly high heartbeat and was given one dose of steroids. I went home the next day.
Within a 24-hour period, I returned to the Emergency room with the same exact pain and was admitted for a week. They did every test on me under the sun (hence the 45K bill) , including spinal tap and never-ending supply of morphine that really didn’t do much to ease the pain that felt like someone was stabbing my ears and brain. The diagnoses were that I had an incredible sinus infection that has traveled back up (from my ears) and back up to push on the nerves that surrounded my brain. After a full dose of steroids and letting me finish it, I ended up going back home.
Fast forward 6 months later, my ear pain was back. Completely freaked out at this point, I grasped at straws to find a cheaper solution that won’t take me back to the hospital. The only and temporary pain relief that I felt was from taking the extra strength, over the counter Sudafed. Even though this relieved my pain, it kept coming back. I ended up talking to two EMT doctors, one recommended a hearing and allergy test (passed both with flying colors) and the other told me I have a deviated septum and that I immediately needed surgery to correct that. In pain and broke at this point, I almost did the surgery but refrained at the last minute because this solution just didn’t make sense. I just let it be … I guess I must be in pain for the rest of my life.
Fast forward to this year, I started to see Dr. Matt for sciatica issue and one day I overheard him explaining to a patient how an adjustment can help with ear infections. Intrigued, I asked him to do one on me. Within few minutes I felt all my sinuses drain down my throat and a massive lightbulb went on in my head! If my sinuses do not drain, all that sits in my ear tubes and festers. If not taken care of, it can become severely infected and land me in a hospital again. This adjustment has become a standard of my routine now and I feel incredibly lucky to have FINALLY found a solution that not only takes the pain away but doesn’t cost me an arm and a leg. Thank you - Maggie B.

He is a very good doctor since l take my children with him and l do not get sick so much

Dr Matt has been a huge help with my daughter. She went in for her first visit in lots of back pain and scared, by the second visit she was smiling and feeling great! He is amazing with the kids and his staff as well! So thankful We found him!

Our family has used New Life’s chiropractic services for many years. They are truly a family chiropractic center! My children love getting adjusted and the adjustments have helped keep them healthy. Dr. Trish and Dr. Matt are wonderful with children, as well as excellent chiropractors. In addition, they make scheduling easy and flexible. The office staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend their services.

When it comes to chiropractors, you really want to be picky with who you entrust your health. I've worked as a massage therapist with multiple chiropractors and I've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. I've seen people hurt by doctors and I've seen people pushed too hard by aggressive marketing and sales. You won't get any of that with Dr. Matt. He's been my chiropractor of choice since 2012 (and I passed up free chiropractic care from former bosses and coworkers because I only trust Dr. Matt). He's not only the best at providing THE RIGHT spinal adjustments with careful precision, but he's also an expert in nutrition and can help you to make the right lifestyle adjustments to heal your ailments naturally. Dr. Matt is an elite chiropractor and Northwest Indiana is lucky to have him!

Dr. Matt is wonderful. He is helping me so much. I was diagnosed with 2 bulging discs in my neck and was in constant pain. He is helping me with it. I have not had this much relief in a very long time. I recommend New Life!

Suzi MardirosianSuzi Mardirosianpowered by Google

This place - Dr. Trish & Dr. Matt have changed my entire way of thinking and believing about the medical industry. Our bodies naturally heal itself- through nutrition and adjustments. My children and I have been patients since 2008. I was first sceptical when my sister brought me here. I thank the Lord God for these amazing people!!! They care for our children before they are born and will into adulthood. If I’m in pain ANYWHERE in my body..I’m educated and completely on my way to a pain free life. Their knowledge is extensive and comes straight from love of life. A natural life. As was intended. Thank you both!!!

Amazing how the pains goes away when I get adjusted by Dr Matt . I highly recommend him and his wife too. I have been seen them since 2003.

Ambica MacalkaAmbica Macalkapowered by Google

I started seeing Dr. Trish four years ago for severe nursing issues and truly could not have gotten through it (or the one after!) without her. Within a few adjustments, I was nursing pain free. She regularly 'fixes' my entire family now and has been a valuable resource for a multitude of other things, including helping to practically eliminate my fibromyalgia symptoms and mom advice. I could not be more grateful for her being so flexible and for all she has done for us!

Dr. Trish and Dr. Matt have helped my children through ear infections and overall wellness! Their passion and knowledge is inspiring!
