I would like to enter a testimonial. One morning I woke up and couldn't get out of bed. What had happened? What did I do? I didn't fall or have and accident however my back was so sore that I couldn't straighten myself out. I thought maybe I need a rest. I booked 3 days off of work and stayed in bed. Howevever after 3 days I was worse. I went to my family doctor. He took x-rays and gave me a huge bottle of pills to help the pain. Only problem was that they make your stomach hurt more.

Great, I thought to myself, I can't live like this, so I made an appointment to see Dr. Kelly.

Now let me tell you something about myself. I was 49 years old and up to that point had never ever been to a Chiropractor. In fact I didn't believe they worked at all. I just though it was for rich people to get a back rub. When I arrived at the office I as unable to stand up properly or even sit up. I knew I wouldn't be able to sit in the office long as even that was painful.

Dr. Kelly saw me right away. He explained to me that it was a combination of my whole life that had brought that point. I thought no kidding, I've waterskied, snowskied, dirtbiked, skydived etc so I was wondering when I was going to pay for all my fun. I followed his advise and did my stretches and exercises faithfully.

I am now happy to say that I have been pain free for over a year now and I got my life back. I don't know how it works but it does. I am most proud to say that I did it without drugs and I'm continually getting better. No pain-killers for me, just Dr. Kelly every 3 weeks. Thanks Dr. Kelly. You changed my life and gave it back to me. One more thing. I went bungee jumping for my 50th birthday. Whoo Hoo!


During my pregnancy, I attended weekly chiropractic appointments with Dr. Joelle Johnson of Family First Chiropractic, and because of this I am happy to say I experienced relief from normal discomforts such as back aches.
The knowledge Dr. Joelle was able to share with me helped immensely.
Thank you Dr. Joelle for all you do for your patients. Red Deer is very lucky to have you!

My name is S. M. and I work with the Red Deer Doula Association. I think the only person who loves their job as much as I love mine is Dr. Joelle Johnson.
Over the past few years I have gotten to know Dr. Joelle quite well. She has been a major supporter of the Doula Association and works with my clients day or night. I can't tell you how many times I've called and not only during work hours, but weekends and evenings, and Dr. Joelle is always happy to open the clinic to assist my clients needs. She goes beyond the call of duty everytime.

I had talked to Dr. Joelle about having a "Meet the Doula Night". She right away not only told me that it was a great idea, but that we could also use her of charge, to host the event. We were able to go there, re-arrange everything, and meet a lot of wonderful pregnant ladies. Thank you for your generosity!

I have written and re-written this testimonial because I want people to truly understand how much I respect Dr. Joelle and the job she does. She puts everyone else 100 percent ahead of herself, she is a devoted mother and wife, and she has a heart of gold. I'm honored to be able to call her friend and I know their is no-one else I would trust completely with my clients.


Dr. Joelle is a truly caring professional, who educates her clients about their bodies, so they can become active participants in their one health concerns. What greater gift can a professional practioner give a client?

I have been a patient for several years and I have observed Dr. Joelle's office environment develop into a kind and loving family practice where you are remembered by your first name and always greeted cheerfully.

Dr. Joelle is skilled, professional and above all provides me with excellent Chiropractic care. Her care has made my physical body challenges manageable while working at a job that is a constant physical stress and her care has made me realize that I can move towards my retirement years with glee! Thank Dr. Joelle for easing my mind and body.

Several days after first talking to Dr. Joelle, I began to have a foot go numb for no apparent reason. I immediately booked an appointment to meet Dr. Joelle in person and discuss chiropractic care.

Dr. Joelle went out of her way to be available for an appointment when I was available. I was impressed by her knowledge of chiropractic techniques and the ease with which she was able to convey the valuable information I needed.

Following my very first chiropractic adjustment, I noticed several things: firstly, my foot was no longer going numb and secondly, I was able to sleep a couple of hours at a time.

I have been in Dr. Joelle's care for over four months now. My aches and pains that are have been eased by Dr. Joelle, the adjustments and her loving, caring manner. She is generous with her time, even on busy days. She has a compassionate manner that is seldom experienced when dealing with those in the medical professions. And she has a wealth of knowledge and personal experience.

Thank you.

Getting Regular adjustments from Dr. Joelle for my whole family has made such a huge difference in all of our lives. After giving birth, having my daughter adjusted helped her. I can see a difference immediately after an adjustment, she is calm and content. We all can't imagine our lives without chiropractic care.

Thank you
