Dr. Darcey Walraven Ladner
I am a patient of Omni Wellness Center, located within walking distance of our community inside of the Mountain Island Fitness Center. I have permanent injuries due to a bad car accident in March 2007, & until I started seeing them, I had severe headaches 4-5 times weekly, & my energy level was below ground zero. I decided to try them simply because they are convenient to my home. However, since going there, I know that it was God who led me there to receive help in answer to my prayers. I only have a bad headache about once a month now, & through the chiropractics & ariculotherapy, my energy level has improved significantly. Tomorrow I am going to try acupuncture again. The last time I tried it was a few years ago through my pain specialist, & it was a HORRIFIC experience. Now that I have experienced so much improvement, I am ready to try it again. Oh, also let me mention that I was on pain medication & nerve damage medication that I was told by my pain specialist I would have to take the remainder of my life. Considering I hope to live many more years, & I was only 46 when I was injured, I am ECSTATIC to report that I am not on ANY medications now, & I feel SOOO much better. Dr. Darcey nor Dr. Cressie ever condemned me for taking the meds, nor did they try to talk me out of taking them. Rather, they provided a treatment program that helped me so much, I made the decision to go off the meds with my doctor's approval, & that alone is a VERY positive step for any human body.
I am not a spokesperson for Omni Wellness, nor do I receive or desire anything special for telling people about them. I just believe that when we are blessed, we should share the blessing with others. The best way I can share the blessing I have received from them is to tell others so that others can receive a holistic approach to quality health. Even those who have not suffered obvious injury can benefit from the variety of education, information, products & services Omni Wellness offers.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to read through this, & for your consideration in sharing.

Thank you for all what you do for me. I Finished my first 100 mile race at Umstead. My hips, I.T. band and knees have no pain. I will be by as soon as it safe to move! Thanks!

I first went to Dr. Darcey and her associates at Omni Wellness Center for persistent back pain, hip pain and foot pain. I had never been to a chiropractic doctor and didn't really believe the things I had heard people say about them. After being treated by an orthopedic surgeon with only intermittent improvement in the pain, I knew I had to do something different, especially when my first grandchild arrived and I could barely get up and down to take care of him. Today, after only a few weeks of treatment I am pain free most of the time and running after my two year old grandson and dancing with my husband! It was unnerving to realize how much I, as many women do, become so tolerant of pain that we allow ourselves to get to the point of not being able to go at all! I didn't realize how much the pain was interfering with my daily activities and keeping me from being active and energized until after the pain was gone. Dr. Darcey recognized my fears when I first came to her and set my mind at ease, following up my first visit with a phone call to see how I was feeling. With their treatment, nutrition and exercise recommendations I feel in charge of my health again. I look on my time spend in chiropractic care as an investment in myself so that I can be the wife, mother and grandmother that I want to be. Omni Wellness Center has had a huge impact on my life and my quality of life has never been better!

"Thank you and I much appreciate the
professionalism, care and personal attention Dr. Cressie and the staff
have given me. I have visited many chiropractic offices for past pains,
adjustments, and etc… Your office has provided me with the expected
level of care you could be proud of. Thank you."

"The fact that I couldn't walk and that I was in
extreme low back pain brought me in to Omni Wellness Center. I couldn't
even put my pants on! I have had back issues since I was a child and
have had chiropractic care on and off. However, I had taken about 12
years off and then this low back pain started. I was referred in by a
family friend- so I knew what Dr. Darcey and her staff had done before. I
knew this is where I could get well. After treatment and learning
proper exercises, I am now PAIN FREE and on a monthly maintenance
appointment. The care I received allows me to move and do things again. I
am not afraid of doing things because of the risk of pain. Omni
Wellness Center got me well and moving again quickly!
"I found Omni Wellness Center through my online
insurance search. I was experiencing low back pain and then knee pain.
It started as just an inconvenience, but then the knee pain started to
interfere with my activities of daily living. I was having a hard time
working and playing. I knew pain like this was not normal. I started
receiving treatment at Omni Wellness Center and started to see changes
quickly. I did therapies in the office including cold laser on my knee.
Now, I am PAIN FREE. I can do all the things I did once before, and
finally feel as though I can live life to the fullest without pain!"
"My brother has seen Dr. Darcey Walraven at
Omni Wellness Center for some time now. He had been after me to come in,
and I finally did. I am glad I did, too! I am moving and feeling so
much better. I am able to get up and down easier without so much pain. I
am glad I took my brother's advice and came to see the doctors at Omni

"My major complaint was fibromyalgia,
degenerative disc disease, osteo-arthritis, RA, Benign tremors,
migraines, and sleep deprivation. Prior to Omni Wellness Center, I was
receiving cortisone injections and taking many medications under the
direction of a rheumatologist and my Medical Doctor. I still see these
doctors for my regular check up, but I no longer need cortisone
injections. I have been affected by these conditions since the mid-
1980's. It affected my life in many ways. I was not able o play with my
children and now grandchildren as much as I wanted to and I was
suffering from extreme fatigue. It would take me forever to clean my
house because I had to stop and rest between tasks. I didn't feel like
being nice or friendly.
I cannot explain in words how much chiropractic care and acupuncture have helped me. I am now sleeping for 6-8 hours and it is wonderful. I feel more like my old self and I have a lot of hope and optimism. I can now play with my grandchildren all day without crying at the end of the day from so much pain. My family is my life and my life is so much better now. The entire staff at Omni Wellness is great. Dr. Darcey, Dr. Cressie, and Sally are wonderful, friendly and really care and go the extra mile to help. They make you feel like family. I am now taking my grandson once a month for an adjustment and it has helped him. When he fall or has a "boo-boo", he says he needs to go see Dr. Cressie! My daughter goes on a regular basis and it has helped her tremendously. I have never been to any doctor that shows the compassion and concern to the extent the entire staff shows for their patients. I was amazed at the number of ailments that could be treated by a chiropractor such as sinus problems, runny nose, allergies, migraines and many other ailments. I am so grateful that there is something that can help other than medications.
I love to shop, but would have to stop and rest about ever 15-30 minutes- I can now shop for hours without resting! Yay! I am considered disabled but now I now feel like I could possibly go back to work. (if I wasn't having so much fun!) We don't appreciate the things we are able to do until we can't do them any longer. I am very happy there is something that can correct these ailments.
