Happy Mama Testimonial “Maizy is 10 months and was waking up for 2-3 hour at a time as it was a struggle for her to get back to sleep. She was noticeably uncomfortable and arching her back in discomfort. After her adjustment she filled her diaper on the way home from the office and had HUGE improvement in sleep. She only woke up twice the night after her adjustment and it was brief with no sign of discomfort. I actually had to wake her up in the morning! The following night’s sleep has been great! ~ Teresa G.
“I had first heard about Dr. Keough through one of her patients that was in the same birthing class as me and my husband. I had heard great things about her care especially for pregnant women but since I was already a patient of a chiropractor right down the road from us I decided to keep going there……that was until week 36 of my pregnancy and baby was STILL in a breech position. We had tried different techniques and excircises that our midwife suggested and nothing seemed to be working. I was getting increasingly discouraged by the thought of the possibilities that our birth wouldn’t go as planned. I called Dr. Keough and scheduled an appointment that week.
My first visit with Dr. Keough was wonderful. She assured me that I was not alone and she has had quite a few other pregnant women with breech babies that she has successfully helped turn. She explained everything in great detail before she did anything and took her time in adjusting me and explained the reasons for some of the low back pain I was having. She took great care in making sure I was comfortable the whole time helping me up and down etc. then she moved on to the techniques to help turn the baby. She was very knowledgeable and gentle with every movement and again, explained everything she was doing while it was happening. I was completely comfortable and relaxed the whole time. She spent almost an hour with me the first visit and after leaving there I felt encouraged, relaxed and in complete alinement. I have been going to a chiropractor most of my life and I had never experienced an appointment like that. Most of the time it’s “get in, get adjusted, and get out” but since that first appointment with Dr. Keough I knew this was the type of chiropractic experience I wanted. After we left Dr. Keough’s office we had our appointment with our midwife and sure enough the ultrasound showed that our little guy was head down already! Every appointment thereafter has been wonderful, and has helped keep me comfortable and baby staying in the right position. I will be not only be continuing to get care from Dr. Keough after my pregnancy, but I will also be bringing my newborn, my 4 year old and my husband!” Rachel M.
“When my 2 year old son Cody started seeing Dr. Felicity a month ago he had been having several ongoing issues including frequent carsickness, coughing at night, and recurrent diaper rash. The carsickness and coughing at night started 7 months ago after a fall that required him to get stitches in his lip (very hard/traumatic fall.) Our pediatrician had dismissed it as a normal childhood phase, but I (unable to leave the subdivision without puke some days) was not convinced and was tired of feeling like no one was listening to me. Since the first day, Dr. Felicity has listened carefully and been so sweet with my son. The first 2 weeks we saw her, he continued to throw up (6 out of 14 days) and then it just stopped. He has not gotten sick for 2 weeks! His cough and diaper rash have also disappeared (but I’m not sure if that is due to chiropractic or a diagnosis and treatment of toddler reflux and asthma, time will tell.) There were some other hidden “side effects” that I was not anticipating. When my son hugs me now, he squeezes me 3x stronger. I didn’t even think he had low muscle tone before, but it was so noticeable! Due to the adjustments he has had, I believe that he hears better because he’s gone from using 2 word sentences to 4 word sentences and holding an entire conversation with me (this is the benefit everyone around us notices!) My only regret in seeking chiropractic care is that I waited so long. I thought he was a happy kid before, but his personality really has changed in the last month. He feels so much better. This really has been life changing for me, I no longer have to worry about packing 2-3 changes of clothes to leave the house and clean the car seat nightly, and worry about how much he’s eating (because of how much he’s losing!)Today at this adjustment we were cracking up because he was laughing so hard as Dr. Felicity was adjusting him. Thank you Dr. Felicity!”
Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your neck. It releases hormones that control metabolism (how your body gets energy from the food you eat), and if this process becomes interrupted it can lead to heart disease, osteoporosis, infertility and, in rare cases, even coma and death.
More specifically, your thyroid produces two main hormones thyroxine (T-4) and triiodothyronine (T-3), which are responsible for: Continue reading

Walking and running come naturally to us but pedaling isn’t a normal state of affairs. “Our feet work by our arches collapsing and energy being stored like a leaf-spring,” says Sean Madsen, a biomechanist at the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine in Colorado and an expert in Specialized Body Geometry (BG).
“That energy is returned during the push-off, when we propel forward. None of that happens with cycling. Riding is a forefoot oriented activity, meaning the arch collapses and stores energy precisely at the point when we want to deliver it.”
“I started seeing Dr. Keough at the beginning of my second trimester. I had decided to seek chiropractic treatment during my pregnancy because I had read all about the positive benefits, and Dr. Keough was one of the first results that appeared when I searched online. At the beginning of my treatment, I wasn’t having too many pregnancy-related issues, so Dr. Keough was able to help correct some chronic issues that I had been having.
As my pregnancy progressed, I would hear other women complaining about back pain and pelvic pain, but I never really had to deal with that. When I started to have the slightest ache in those areas, Continue reading

My passion in life is helping people out of pain and into health and wellness. I love all my patients but I especially love working with pregnant mothers. It is so important to be pain-free and in great health during your pregnancy for the well-being of both mother and baby for many years after pregnancy, labor and delivery take place. Here is a recent testimonial from a patient that discovered pregnancy can be more enjoyable that she previously thought…
“Dr. Keough is a miracle worker. When I first came to her I was Continue reading
“Our daughter Andrea had multiple ear infections before she was a year old. Our doctor finally said our only option is to have the tubes surgically in place to help her ears drain. We were so relieved because we thought this would solve all our problems. Unfortunately, this did not solve our problems. The ear infections started up again about a month after the surgery. We brought Andrea in to see Dr. Keough on a recommendation of a friend thinking this was our last hope. Since Andrea’s 6th chiropractic adjustment she has been ear infection free! She is now a healthy 4 year old who hardly ever is sick.” Amy
