Dr. Kohler can help you too! – Read this review to see how he helped my daughter in only 3 visits!
It is heart wrenching to watch your child be in pain, so I was elated and relieved when Dr. Kohler of The Vital Enery Center on Capital Hill in Seattle was able to help my daughter go from a 9 out of 10 pain to a 6 out of 10 pain in just 1 visit!!
Here is the story of why I sought care for my daughter.
She was in severe pain, had lost all use of her left shoulder and there was no accident or injury which started this problem.
We went to her pediatric doctor and an orthopedic specialist. Several xrays were taken which were "inclonclusive" and based on her symptoms she was diagnosed with nerve impingment syndrome.
The doctors did not know why this happened, yet recommended a treatment plan of physical therapy, with follow-up visits every two weeks to determine if an MRI may be needed. As I am uninsured, this treatment plan became a huge financial burden.
I decided I would speak with Dr. Kohler about all this and he recommended I bring her in to see him for an evaluation and possible treatment. The doctor requested her xrays from her orthopedic visit so he would not have to take extra's if not needed! Dr. Kohler not only saved my daughter from the dibilitating pain she was in, he also saved me hundereds to thousands of dollars!
The first day Dr. Kohler evaluated my daughter she had no use of her left shoulder at all with 9 out of 10 pain. He extensivly evaluated her using various Applied Kinesiology, Range of Motion, Neurological and Orthopedic assessments. He concluded the best course of action for her that day was a gentle, non-invasive adjustment to her lower cervical vertebrae (C5)and had her rest on an ice roll for her neck.
After having spent the past 5 days with no improvment or change to her condition I was not expecting much. Yet after only that 1 gentle adjustment she now reported only 6 out of 10 pain! She still could not move her arm, but she was feeling better!
The doctor recommended that she come back to see him the in next day or two. I am so grateful to myself for heeding his suggestion! When I brought her in the 2nd time, he had recieved and reviewed the xrays from the previous doctors office and had determined my daughter had forward head posture with loss of her cervical curve and her first vertebrae was out of alignment. He gave her a specialized percise, gentle, non-ivasive adjustment to her first cervical vertebrae and this time had her rest on a cervical pillow, and then an ice roll for her neck.
Guess what!? She could now feel her arm again! Not only that, she was able to begin to lift it and her pain was even less now!
I am ecstatic to tell you that it has been 1 week with 3 visits and my daughter can now FULLY move her arm IN ALL directions and now only has a 2 out of 10 pain ONLY WHEN she stretches it too far!
We will continue on our treatment plan with Dr. Kohler, work on our homecare routine to restore the curve to her neck and educate as many people as possible in the amazing talents and treatments of Jared Kohler, DC!
Pain free! – I was walking around with back pain and having a hard time breathing for two weeks before I gave up on my own methods of resolving my pain. I went to Dr. Jared for an adjustment to find that I had a hiatal hernia and my back was out. One adjustment later, I was pain free and able to take a full breath. Five months later, my back was hurting from being big and pregnant, and I got another adjustment, along with a temporary arch support, and found myself able to work again without pain. Dr. Jared knows how to work with the physical and more subtle energy bodies, which in turn, keep my structural balance happy for extended periods of time.
Carpe Diem - check out Vital Energy Center! – Do you like to seize the day? Are you looking to discover what's REALLY going on with your body and why you're feeling the way you do? Are you ready to unleash your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual potential? If so, call the Vital Energy Center and work with Dr. Kohler now. He’s played an integral role in ensuring my body is fully aligned and connected so I feel my best. Kohler is graciously welcoming and has a trusting spirit, allowing you to feel at ease in his care. He uses a variety of gentle techniques to best match each patient and their needs; assuring exceptional, effective and efficient care. What I find different about his practice is that he empowers his patients by teaching them how to care for their own spine, so they don't have to depend on him. Armed with this knowledge, patients can prevent future mishaps - especially for the neck. Kohler communicates in a way that makes it easy to understand what's going on with your body. He's one of a handful chiropractor’s in Seattle who uses the Atlas Orthogonal technique - it's precise and potently effective. There are hundreds of chiropractors to choose from, and based on my extensive knowledge and experience, the Vital Energy Center offers the most comprehensive and professional services. So, I'm passing on my great find to you. Enjoy your healing journey with Dr. Kohler and his team.
Rockin' Chiropractic Energy! – This chiropractic facility is quite fantastic! Not only is Dr. Kohler a very down to earth and precise doctor, he also explains peoples' ailments quite well and gives a great deal of information so that the client is able to understand exactly what is wrong and how they will be feeling better in no time. He explains his procedures so you are not surprised, as well as focuses on the client understanding the working of nerves, muscles, ligaments etc. He does not pretend to care, he actually does. Excellent service, as I have been seen by him and the outcome has been quite remarkable! My ballet neck has created some issues for me, but his work has enabled a more openness to the malleability of my neck. Very successful treatment!
Excellent and safe chiropractic care from Dr Kohler – I have been a patient of Dr Kohler for three years and I recommend him to friends, family and my own clients.
He is not your average chiropractor. He is very thorough and explains every detail of your treatment plan without ever being pushy. He has many different techniques that are gentle and effective and he has a keen intuitive sense as to which ones are right for the person on the table.
Once or twice a year I have neck pain that threatens to keep me from doing my job. Every time Dr Kohler is able to stop the pain, keep me working and I always leave in better shape than before.
The Vital Energy Center is a great place to receive care. It is a relaxed and comfortable environment with a great healing energy.
I highly recommend Dr Kohler.
Excellent Chiropractic care at The Vital Energy Center – If you are looking for a unique type of chiropractic medicine, The Vital Energy Center is the place for you. I had been experiencing back pain and shoulder pain to the point where I could not move my arm behind my back for 2 years. I had finally had enough when Dr. Kohler was recommended to me. My first 2 appointments were comprehensive, intuitive, and as long as I needed them to be in order to answer any questions I may have had. Dr. Kohler is an amazing healer and incredible listener. During the second appointment he recapped everything I had told him to be sure he didn't miss anything and to my amazement he had every detail perfectly captured.
Then, the treatments began. Every adjustment is gentle. Dr. Kohler uses a series of muscle tests in order to determine what is needed. After just one adjustment I was able to sleep through the night no pain. After 2 adjustments I was able to move my shoulder and arm no problem, when for 2 years I was in pain. After continued treatment I am able to run again at the level desired. My intention is to continue receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Kohler as a lifetime commitment to wellness, health, and balance. If these things are important to you, as well as working with an experienced, caring and trustworthy professional, I recommend The Vital Energy Center and Dr. Kohler!
Great Chiro. Cured a leg situation after diving accident. – I went to Dr. Kohler after a scuba diving accident after my leg was hurt. I could barely walk. After 6 weeks of intense sessions, Dr. Kohler restored my leg muscles and now they are as good as new.
In the process, I discovered the world of chiropractors, received several therapeutical massages, and enjoy spending time learning a lot about the spine, bone structure, and many other areas in which he specializes.
I would recommend Dr. Kohler to anyone in any sort of pain and need. His attitude, calmness, communication and planned care makes the process seems much quicker than it really is.
Support A Quality Local Business – Over the last 25 years, I have started several businesses in the Capitol Hill area and have always been grateful for my local supporters. In the vein of mutual appreciation, I want to tell you about a treasure on North Capitol Hill that you may not know about: Dr. Jared Kohler, Chiropractic Doctor and Applied Kinesiologist. Dr. Kohler's clinic, The Vital Energy Center, is in a lovely house on the corner of 10th and E. Boston, just across from Bertschi School. Several Massage Therapists and a Nutritionist offer their services there, as well.
I am a landscaper and do tons and tons of stone work, sometimes too much for my body. Pushing hard on a project, I found one day that my back seized. I couldn't even turn my torso or my head even slightly, not even enough to slide into a car!
Dr. Kohler was the closest healer I could walk to. And I am glad I did! In one (emergency) session, Dr. Kohler freed me up: pain gone, flexibility returned and I walked out floating and free. Wow, it was some magic! I had a wee bit of good sense to slow down my work, but Dr. Kohler kept me mobile for the duration and in good time, I healed completely.
A year or so later, I was building a set of stone stairs, working late, and overdid it again. Oof. Once again, Dr. Kohler took care of me, though this injury requires a complete work-stoppage for healing time and continued care. Never-the-less, I could feel from the first visit that I was on my way to correction. He works wonders for me and keeps ME in business!
While I may be the "urgent care" type, Dr. Kohler treats all kinds of issues, from injuries to preventive and wellness care. In my experience, his methods are gentle and painless - no cracking and crunching.
He is caring, joyful, communicative and truly interested in educating me. He also frequently makes recommendations for things for me to do at home and work to heal and keep myself healthy.
I cannot do justice, verbally, to Dr. Kohler's methods and the subtleties of his approach. His receptionist, Meaghan, was very kind and answered any questions I had.
We are lucky to have a gentle, caring, trustworthy chiropractor like Dr. Kohler in our neighborhood.
Please join me in supporting such a quality local business.
Excellent Healer – Dr. Jared Kohler is an amazing healer. I've been seeing him for years for neck pain due to forward head posture from computer time & breastfeeding & life activities, wrist pain, sciatica during pregnancy, & miscellaneous aches & pains. He's efficient & finds the source of the pain or blockage of optimal health with ease. He offers clear explanations, adjusts me so that I am functioning better & offers ways for me to help myself be it with nutrition, excercises, etc. He's the first one I go to if I feel like I'm catching a cold too, to boost the immune system. His office is beautiful & comfortable & it is smooth running- I'm in and out within a half hour which is fabulous. Highly recommended!
Amazing! – I was one of Dr. Kohler's earliest clients and was thoroughly impressed not only with his abilities as a Chiropracter but also in his friendly, personable and intuitively understanding way of interacting with me. Every time i went there, i felt welcomed. appreciated and valued as a client. It wasnt long before i saw Jared more as a trusted friend than as my chiropracter.
Dr. Kohler's techniques are truly amazing. My ideas of Chiropractic work included bone crunching and popping and though there is a bit of that, his techniques are much less intense. Strangely, in spite of the lack of intensity, i always feel much, much better after a session with him. His majic hands gently discover the blockages in my body and - depending on the need - just as gently or firmly release them so that when i leave his office, i feel completely aligned and energized.
When i started Dr. Kohler was working on his own in an inexpensive basement clinic. Over the years i have seen him grow and have been thoroughly impressed with the VEC that he and his partners created a few years ago. Located at the quiet North end of Capitol Hill where parking is not an issue, the VEC is a lovely home that carries a relaxing and energizing feeling - making one forget that s/he is actually in the center of a large city..
I have sent many of my friends to Dr. Kohler and wholeheartedly reccomend that you too choose the Vital Energy Center if you desire to feel better in your body.
