Easy to Talk To

Great staff is at the heart of Elk Valley Family Chiropractic clinic. The definition of care is unique here. Dr. Rumpel is easy to talk to. He listens and he fully explains everything.

You guys are amazing

“I had an incredible experience in my first appointment and continue enjoying every visit. The first assessment with all the images and explanations made thing easier for me to understand, everything was clear and they took the time to explain everything to detail, I am very thankful for this. After dealing with the medical system for almost two years and not getting clear answers, this brings hope to my life. Thank you Dr. Rumpel, Sheryl and Emilie, you guys are amazing”

A Warm and Positive Atmosphere

“I am very pleased with my initial visit and the information session held on Wednesday night! The office is such a warm and positive atmosphere. Sheryl and Emilie are both so sweet and welcoming, and they make you feel right at home! Dr. Mike is such an inspiring person, and he made me feel comfortable and hopeful. He is very passionate about health and chiropractics and that is evident by the way he speaks, He has helped a number of my family members and their progress is amazing, and I know that they are grateful in their everyday life for what Dr. Mike does. This was my very first chiropractic experience and I am already looking forward to coming back again!

Thank you, Elk Valley Chiropractic!”

I have been visiting a chiropractor for 25 years and have never encountered anyone with such dedication to helping their patients. Elk Valley’s staff including Karen and Cheryl were so helpful and friendly. Dr. Rumpel is the best chiropractor I have ever had. He was genuinely concerned and focused on my health and my daughter’s.

Dear Elk Valley Family, (first posted on LinkedIn)

Details of the Recommendation: “I have had a 180 degree change in my life since I connected with Dr. Mike Rumple at Elk Valley Family Chiropractic in October 2011. I was in constant agony with a lower back pain that I have had since my teen years. I had quit running in 1985 due to knee and hip pain. I had visited many Chiropractors over the years with no real relief. Dr. Mike formulated a plan to first get everything lined up to relieve the pain, then to get me to attend a talk he gave at a local college concerning running techniques. He turned me on to the possible benefits of “Barefoot Running”. I have not looked back since. I have “0” pain in over two full years, in October 2013 I ran my first half marathon at 59 years old wearing Vibram 5 Finger’s with “0” pain. I am starting training to run a full marathon in 2014. Dr. Mike is an advocate for Health and Wellness.

I very strongly recommend Elk Valley Family Chiropractic. Not to forget that behind the good doctor are two wonderful ladies named Karen and Sheryl. They keep the place running like a very well oiled machine.”

Chiropractic makes a difference!

chiro kids 116After the first visit, my lungs started to clear. I have asthma and my lungs have always been a health concern.

Headaches were also a daily problem, now I seldom have headaches.

I could not left my left leg to walk up steps, but I can now.

I had insomnia which is not a problem anymore. I think one of the things that have impressed me the most is my energy level. I’ve gone from sleeping until 10:30 a.m. and four hour naps in the afternoon and then tossing and turning with back pain all night, to being active with grandchildren and mowing my own lawn and various other enjoyable activities.

This energy has also improved my self confidence.

I used to take 100 prescription pain pills each month, now I’m only taking 100 pills in just 4 months.

I’m so happy that I sought out Chiropractic care with Dr. Mike; it has changed my life, in a positive way.

Make that appointment!

IreneI started seeing Dr. Rumpel about 2 months ago. My daughter had been trying for months to get me to go and make that first appointment. I was skeptical, as I’ve gone to many chiropractors, massage therapists and also acupuncture to get help for my neck problems. I only got short term relief.

I’ve taken pain meds for 30 years pretty much everyday. It’s always been hard to get through the day. That has all changed! I’ve taken meds four times in two months. I don’t go to bed or wake up with a headache anymore. I have more movement with my head. I just painted my bathroom, and no headache. Before, after a few hours, my neck would be hurting and I’d have an awful headache from reaching. My back feels great also. This has been a huge day to day change in my life!

If you are thinking of Chiropractic, take that step!

Thank you Dr. Mike!

Increased Energy

I started to have problems with my neck and hands due to carpal tunnel syndrome. I met a lady at the Fernie Fellowship Baptist Church and she referred me to Dr. Rumpel and said she wouldn’t be walking without his help. I figured that was my answer to getting better.

When I started to see Dr. Mike I had trouble with my hands and my neck from a job that had high counters, so I think maybe I pinched a muscle or nerve and ended up having neck pain and headaches. Dr. Mike really helped me through a very painful time in my life.

I have found that Dr. Mike and his staff are very helpful and they genuinely care for everyone that walks through their door. I find that as long as I am getting adjusted I feel I have lots of energy and I sleep a lot better.

I would recommend Dr. Rumple to everyone I know!

Improved my life!

My whole body was in pain, within a month my mobility came back with much less pain everywhere. I had been in severe pain for six months. There were times that I could hardly walk upstairs.

I was unable to ski in the winter. My lifestyle was in severe jeopardy as I love to exercise and be active. with the way I was, I had become depressed and almost come to accept my inactivity as a normal process of aging. My Cardiologist gave me a kick in the butt and told me I had to do something about my soreness.

I am so thankful to Dr. Mike for how I feel today. I am recommending his Chiropractic to all I talk to, they have seen my miraculous recovery!

Better Sleep!

I had not had a full night’s sleep in years, unless I used a sleep aid medication.

Dr. Rumpel made a skull adjustment and now I sleep like a log and do not use any sleep meds at all.

This has been about three months now, and I’m still feeling great.

Chronic cough relieved

When we first moved to Fernie in the fall, our son had been suffering from a chronic cough that had been going on for 2 months. He was not sleeping well at night and was napping for 3-4 hours during the day. It was heartbreaking to see our two year old in so much pain.

Before I knew it, we were in Dr. Mike’s office. After 3 adjustments (in one week) his back spasms had stopped, he no longer cried when he coughed, he started to sleep through the night.

After a couple more adjustments we noticed our son’s cough had been phased out. He could then stand straight, shoulders back and touch his toes without being in pain.

I learned that is coughing had caused his muscles in his chest and back to become so tight that it was hard for him to stand straight.

Thanks to Dr. Mike, we now know who to turn to when we are not feeling well. Watching our family become healthier through chiropractic rather then resorting to antibiotics has been a phenomenal experience.

Chiropractic care has benefits!

I have been receiving chiropractic care for 6 months and upon commencement of care, I was suffering from sleepless nights, back ailments and reduced physical ability.

Six months later I have noticed:

  • Restoration of sleep schedule and eating habits
  • No sickness (even through winter)
  • Increased strength, faster recovery and overall better physical performance
  • Haven’t taken Tylenol or ibuprofen in 6 months
  • Not scared of Chiropractic
  • Reduction of knots in middle back and shoulders
  • Overall betterment of mood and well being

Surge of Energy

In July of 2004, I sustained a serious neck injury from a bicycle accident. The doctor who attended my accident told me there was no serious injury to my spinal cord or vertebra. He told me I would be tender for awhile, but I would be okay. Two months went by and I was not feeling better at all, in fact, it got worse.

I was all hunched up and was not walking properly. A few of my close friend noticed that I was walking with a slight limp and I was in constant aches. One of my friends suggested I go to see a chiropractor about my condition. I contact the office of Dr. Mike Rumpel.

after only two adjustments, I already felt all the stiffness and tension disappear. I finally started to sleep better at night. I have felt a new surge of energy return to my body and I think a lot more clearly. My drive is up and my grades at school are excellent. I think that a person need not suffer an injury to see a chiropractor. The channels of energy alone that a chiropractic session provides to ones body, is reason enough to see a chiropractor right away.

Whole Body Wellness

I have been a downhill mountain bike racer in the pro-elite category, this fall I had an unfortunate accident, in training for a Quebec cup final. I fell pretty hard and broke my collarbone in three places.

In recovering from this accident, I started to see Dr. Rumpel about 3 times a week. Dr. Rumpel really helped in getting my strength back up as well as getting the shoulder and back pain, headaches to leave. I was back on my bike and training for the next season before I knew it.

I have continued to see Dr. Rumpel, I feel I’ve improved in a lot of other areas as well. My whole body is feeling great and my energy level is back up 100%!

Thanks Dr. Rumpel!

Migraines be gone!

I first visited Dr. Mike following and injury to my neck. I had various other health problems at the time including migraine tension headaches and hip pain, all of which I had suffered with for many years.

I had no idea that chiropractic could help these problems as I thought it was “just for backs”. With regular visits, all my symptoms have improved dramatically. I have been able to stop taking the migraine medication I was taking twice a day and as my neck is now much better, my tension headaches have also improved.

I am able to walk further than I have done for a long time and I sleep better as my hip pain no longer wakes me in the night. I continue to see Dr. Mike on a weekly basis as I know this helps me stay healthy.

Bed Wetting

Thank you, Dr. Rumpel, so much for helping our 7 year old son with his problem of bed wetting.

when we first brought him to you, he was having accidents almost every night, within a couple of weeks, his accidents reduced drastically. It makes sense to think his nervous system was not sending the proper messages to his brain at night, due to chiropractic misalignments.

Now we are down to two adjustments a month, less than it costs to buy pull ups!

Our son faithfully stumbles to the bathroom every late night, thanks to your adjustments.

Thank you, We are very grateful!

I woke up one night so dizzy that I couldn’t sit or stand and when I tried, I was violently ill. This went on for two days. My husband took me to the hospital to emergency where I was told I had Mennier’s disease and I was given medication.

The next day, I was no better, so I decided to go see Dr. Mike. In a few minutes after the adjustment, I had no symptoms.

I walked out and threw my medications in the garbage. That was six months ago and I have not been dizzy since.

Thank you,

-  F.A.

Thorough and Knowledgeable!

I had been going to a prior chiropractor before Dr Mike came to the same practice (place)….I just continued going. I find Dr Mike is very thorough and recommend him to anybody that needs help. His seminars at the College are a bonus. Very information and fun.
