I have suffered with periodic colitis bouts for decades and have been under various medical doctors care for all these years. During one of my regular visits to Dr. Richard Snow for Chiropractic & Acupuncture treatment several weeks ago, I shared my colitis condition with him. Dr. Snow administered acupuncture treatment and told me some important things about the human body and central nerve location(s) that have a large bearing on abdominal conditions and pain. He gave me suggestions of actions I could take to help these nerve locations reduce my colitis issues. These suggestions and additional acupuncture treatments have been a great help in reducing the pain and symptoms thus far.
I started getting treatment from Dr. Snow when my husband and I moved to Overland Park so I could attend chiropractic school. Dr. Snow helped keep my headaches and neck aches from studying at bay. Once I became pregnant I knew the importance of getting adjusted regularly throughout my entire pregnancy to keep me feeling great and to keep me healthy. Acupuncture treatments helped a lot with nausea in the first trimester. Even in the end of my pregnancy when I was becoming uncomfortable, after my weekly adjustment I always felt so much better! After our son, Ellis, was born we knew he would benefit greatly from a "welcome to the world" adjustment since birth can be traumatic to a newborn's spine. He loves getting his adjustments from Dr. Snow and is always a relaxed and happy boy afterwards which makes for a very happy mommy and daddy! Thank you Dr. Snow for keeping Ellis and I happy and healthy!
We were getting ready to get my son’s 4th set of tubes for his ears, and he is four years old. I had enough, so we decided to try something else. Dr. Snow and his staff are some of the most caring people I have met. I was very nervous to trust him with my son. He made me feel so comfortable that I ended up getting my six year old daughter and one year old son adjusted as well. I have seen improvements with my children’s sleep. My son hasn’t had an ear infection since we first started seeing Dr. Snow. I am so thankful that I made the choice to try something new. Dr. Snow is so gentle and caring. I would recommend him for anyone with children! He is great with adults too. I had a pain in between my shoulder blades after my third pregnancy that I could seem to get rid of. I am happy to report that the pain is gone! Thank you Dr. Snow for caring for me and my family!
I just want to thank you and your staff for the services you have provided for Pastor Glenn and I. Since we have been patients there we have noticed a tremendous difference in our health and overall well being. You are always very caring and concerned about us and we really appreciate it. Thanks for recommending the magnesium vitamins yesterday. As a result of the treatment and after taking the magnesium I was able to rest well last night. Again thanks for all you do for us and your patients. May God continue to bless and prosper you.
I have suffered from headaches and migraines since I was 12. A serious migraine can be scary, and horribly painful. Mine come on quick and they come with nausea and light sensitivity. It is impossible to continue to go about my day. I've tried the migraine medicines, including the self injecting shots that leave you with that "hungover" feeling. Dr. Snow applied acupuncture today on acouple of areas and in 30 minutes, I had complete relief. There is no reason why anyone should have to suffer through a day, or longer, trying to use medication and/or complete bedrest to overcome another migraine.
I went in for a routine adjustment and told Dr. Snow I had a headache. He pressed some pressure points on my head in various areas, and in 30 seconds my headache was gone! It was totally amazing! Dr. Snow is so awesome!
Dr. Snow was recommended by a friend about a year ago. He gave me a complimentary consultation and I was impressed with his knowledge and comments to me. The adjustments are so gentle it almost feels like he is not doing anything, but I still get relief from my pain.
He never "cracks" or "pops" my neck. Others have done that and it terrifed me. Dr. Snow does do needle acupuncture, but usually I have the electronic stimulation, that does not use needles. It takes only seconds, it painless, and it very effective.
The office staff is friendly and professional. I never have to wait more than 5 minutes and can always get an appointment that works with my schedule. The office is open until 6pm so I can even go after I get off work.
I would (and do) encourage anyone who is having muscle pain to make an appointment and give him a chance for him to show you what he can offer. A wonderful bonus is that my insurance allows me to pay a one time co-pay for about 40 visits a year!
I had been living with strange pain for several years before I finally was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Thus my research began to better understand just what it was. I know that I was in major pain and was really having a difficult time doing everyday things. After going from doctor to doctor, only to be given pain pills and being urged to exercise, I was listening to the radio one day and heard Dr. Snow's Friday radio show on KPRT. He really sounded like he knew what he was talking about. His demeanor was very gentle and authoritative. I went to his website and downloaded what turned out to be a more than 150+ questionnaire. He asked EVERYTHING! There was no health topic that he did not touch on.
When I called Dr. Snow's office, I was greeted with a very kind and understanding staff and I had enthusiastically let them know that I had already filled out the questionnaire so that we could expedite treatment. The doctor took x-rays, explained everything that he was going to do and had me totally at ease. My major complaint was low back pain, joint pain, and the inability to walk without pitching forward. Dr. Snow WILL let you know if he can help you.
It has been a little over 6 months and I am happy to say that my co-workers comment on how beautiful my posture is, how my disposition is better, my blood pressure is lowered and I am looking forward to getting off some of the current medicines that I am taking. The pain is so much less and, that being said, I am a regular at my exercise class now.
I am glad that I followed my first mind and made that visit and I am thankful every day to Dr. Snow and his outstanding staff. I recommend him to anyone who is suffering from chronic pain. Pain medicines can be addictive and can also have harmful side effects. Before considering surgery, get a second, and maybe a third opinion. Somewhere while you are getting other opinions, consider Dr. Snow for chiropractic care and acupuncture if needed. I'm glad that I did.
I started going to Dr. Snow in October of 2010. I was immediatly impressed by his professionalism. He came up with a treatment plan and with time, I began to see improvement in my blood pressure. I was able to get off of medication and now just go to Dr. Snow for continued blood pressure regulation.
I have also seen improvement in my overall health. During cold and flu season, Dr. Snow recommended supplements that would assist in keeping my healthy.
The staff at Choice of Health is excellent! I am always greeted with a smile and treated with care! Melissa and Kim really make patients feel at ease!
I feel so blessed to be a patient of Choice of Health! Dr. Snow is committed to getting to the root of the problem. Thank you Dr. Snow for your knowledge and expertise in chiropractic care!
To whom it may concern:
I have been a patient of Dr. Richard Snow and the 'Choice of Health P.A.' clinic staff for the better part of a year. I first went to Dr. Snow with pain in my left hip, fully thinking I would soon be needing surgery. He and his fine staff addressed my needs and recommended treatment. It was less than a month that I soon became almost pain free following the expertise treatment from Dr. Snow. Today, I am pain free, while keeping with an intermediate schedule with Dr. Snow. I can now return to my normal exercising without any pain during and afterwards.
I would, without a doubt, recommend Dr. Richard Snow and his clinical staff to my family, friends, colleagues, and other professional contacts needing the types of services that 'Choice of Health P.A.' provides.

Just wanted to thank you and your staff for the prompt and courteous care I receive when I visit your office. Since I have been getting routine chiropractic care, I have noticed my overall health has improved. I managed to get through the cold and flu season with barely a sniffle, less headaches and stress, and I sleep better. I am a firm believer in chiropractic care, and hope others will experience the benefits of this type of treatment as well.
This is my story, it's a good one.
I am a 66 year old patient of the Choice of Health P.A. For years I had not understood the importance of good chiropractic spinal care. But I did learn the hard way. Several years ago, working as a paramedic, while lifting many obese and overweight patients, I injured my back. That injury has caused me severe pain and immobility for approx. 10 years. I have spent many days flat on my back in pain. I have seen many doctors, and have taken a variety of prescription pain medications.
I have Spondylosisthesis of the L-5 vertebra, grade -1, (slipped disk) with some arthritis of the joint that has entrapped and irritated the nerve. This has cost me years of savier pain and has periodically kept me from my work. It has limited my ability for getting exercise which is directly needed for this condition. After seeing several doctors, I ended up with an Orthopedic Surgeon where I received an M.R.I. and several cortisone injections which only help for a short interval, the only option left was laminectomy ( surgery). I was told by the surgeon that this would be a last ditch option, because of the possible complication, risk of infection and expense, and that I should try to live through the pain. I was given several medications for pain. When asking if there was any additional therapy I could seek, only one name was given, Dr. Richard Snow. My surgeon suggested I should give him a try, and Dr. Snow was the only chiropractor he would recommend.
I have seen Dr. Snow for a year and a half with great success. Dr. Snow, through chiropractic manipulations, has kept me drug free and reduced my pain to a mild tolerable level, with no loss of work. I have found that Dr. Snow has a real concern for his patients. He has given suggestions, and is gentle with his adjustments. He has an outstanding staff, always cheerful and polite.
He has reduced my suffering, and increased my mobility, and allows me to remain virtually drug free, getting the exercise I need, and doing the " Honey Do" list that never ends.
He has earned my trust and respect. As a rule I do not give recommendations for professionals doing their job, however in this case, Dr. Richard Snow has my highest recommendation.

Dear Dr. Snow,
We wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the chiropractic care you have provided for Alyssa. She started swim team this week and it is going great! At this time last year we never would have imagined that she would be able to participate in this sport ( or many others!) at all or atleast without the use of numerous allergy and asthma medications! It was almost exactly a year ago Alyssa was on seven medications and inhalers to control her ashtma and allergy symptoms. After just three weeks of swim team she had an asthma attack one morning that led to pleurisy. Not only did she miss quite a bit of school but this situation ended her swim season, as well. This year, thanks to your wonderful care, she is swimming without the use of medications and loving it! She also made it through the spring and fall allergy seasons without the use of medication and without having an asthma attack for the first time in seven years! We can't tell you what a delight and relief this is to all of us. Alyssa is now able to do things she wants to do (she's even considering running cross country in the fall!) because you're helping her control her asthma rather than having her asthma control her life.
Thank you for the pain and back relief you have given mom, dad and I, as well. The quality of life you've helped restore for so many members of our family is dramatic and so very appreciated!
Thank you, again!
Just a little note to Dr. Snow to say 'thank you' for all you help. Miss Avery was born in January (a little early) and we are so excited! Coming to see you was the best decision we made and I'm so glad we did. It will be awhile before we start thinking about baby #2, but when we do we'll be back! Thanks for all your help.
Infertility treatment with Dr. Snow March- May 2008 (been trying 1 year prior to seeing Dr. Snow).
I am a 49 year old painting contractor in Overland Park. I have always enjoyed playing sports until the age of 42 when I started having foot problems and was diagnosed with plantar fascitis. Over the last seven years I have received many treatments for plantar fascitis such as "the boot", cortisone shots in the heel, rehab exercise, rolling a frozen water bottle under my foot, and trying multiple shoe inserts. I had temporary relief at times, but was unable to continue my atheltic activities and the pain was even affecting my work.
My wife has been going to Dr. Snow for chiropractic treatments and mentioned that I should go during his patient appreciation week. Following a consultation with Dr. Snow about my foot problem, he felt he could fix it. I assumed, like every other treatment, it would be temporary and full of exercises and gimmick shoe inserts. I was wrong. In 2 visits, my foot was pain free. I was amazed at the results. I am now in my 5th week, and still have no sign. I spent 7 years with the discomfort of plantar fascitis. With Dr. Snow's help the pain is finally gone and I feel like I'm 35 years old again. I umpire men's softball 3 nights a week, and on Sundays I will do up to 7 games, pain free!
As a side note, visits to Dr. Snow's office are easy to fit into a busy schedule. From the time I park my car to the time I'm back on my way in less then 15 minutes. Amazing! Thank you Dr. Snow.
I've had miserable seasonal allergies for years now, and I've always depended on expensive medicine to get me through the days. I've heard so many wonderful stories about chiropractic helping allergies, so this year I went to Dr. Snow at the first sign of my allergies, and without needing a single pill I've felt better than I have in years! I can be active outside, keep all the windows in my home open, and have no regrets later. So thankful for Dr. Snow and his passion for Chiropractic and Acupuncture! Emily B.
