My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Edie since she started in the 401 Building…and we are still receiving treatments from her. Her care and treatments go beyond the normal—explaining your problem and the treatments you need, as well as showing true and real concern for you…not only as a patient, but as a person. We have recommended many people to her and they too remain her patients. We thank God for her skills and for bringing her to the Murphy area. As well, her staff. - LT

Dr. Spence is the first chiropractor I have seen and she has honestly changed my life. At the age of 21, I started having knee and hip pain that limited everything I did. I was not able to do outdoor activities with my children or else I would have to lay on the couch the next 2-3 days to recover. My hips or knees would give out at any random moment, which was embarrassing at 21 years old. At the age of 24 I started getting migraines. These were once controlled by OTC medicine, but proceeded to get worse. I spent time on doctor prescribed pain medicine, spent numerous appointments with a neurologist, and was put on a preventative that did not work. Now at 33 years old I still was troubled with the constant ache and pain of the knees and hips, and migraines that cause the left side of my face to go numb, blurred vision in my left eye along with massive pain in my whole head and neck. These migraines could not be cured with anything other than an emergency room visit which resulted in a shot of toradol. Upon seeing Dr. Spence, she informed me that my feet no longer had an arch in them which caused my knees to angle inward which put stress on my knees and hips. Along with adjustments to my spine and making custom orthotics for my shoes I have lived 8 months with little to no pain in my knees and hips. I am able to be active with my children, hiking, swimming, and running around. As for my migraines I owe so much to Dr. Spence. I was averaging 4 migraines a week which made it very hard to raise a family. Dr. Spence spent a lot of time focusing on my neck and stress levels, which is where we have found my migraines come from. Dr. Spence suggested a special pillow for me to sleep on to keep my neck aligned and she also did acupuncture on me a few times. Between the adjustments, and acupuncture, I have only had 4 migraines in 8 months. This is a significant change, that I am very blessed to be a part of. I know that I am extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to meet Dr. Spence and have her treat me and get myself on a better, healthier, track for my life. Dr. Spence is very knowledgeable with all natural supplements, and has been able to help myself and my children through common sicknesses. Both of my children age 8 and 13 see Dr. Spence for alignments. I am thankful for her dedication to my family’s overall health and wellness. She is very kind and caring and will do everything possible to help people. She is a blessing! - KR

What a wonderful find I cam across about 10 years ago. Edie Spence came into my life and has proven herself over and over as to her chiropractic skills. I had my doubts when I first started because she used the Activator and I was very unsure of it but again, I was wrong. She has been a life saver for me and I praise and thank her tremendously. - MH

I started going to Dr. Spence with back problems in November 2015. My back and neck were both really out of line. This was the first time I had ever had to go to a chiropractor and I was nervous. The staff made me feel really comfortable. They are very friendly. I'm amazed at how much better my back is. Edie taught me how to take better care of my back also. I know the Lord sent me there. I would recommend them to anyone! - SB

Dr. Edie has helped with getting my husband and I back to staying healthier. We have been seeing her for 10 years--we enjoy our visits, and most of all have learned our bodies to know where we are out of alignment. She really hits the spots and we are grateful that we found her!! Edie is a great health care giver. She was the first one to properly explain exactly what my issue was. I avoided back surgery with Edie's care. We continue to see Edie for maintenance care. We trust and appreciate her. - DC & CC

After years of pain from falling from houses and football injuries, I decided to seek help. I began routine visits to chiropractors, but I found little ease. My back and neck continued to hurt. The first time I came to see Dr. Spence, she was able to help me get relief for my neck and upper back. My neck would not even turn when I walked in. I came back a few more times getting better every time. I have injured my lower back twice since then. I was afraid I would have to have surgery. Each time Dr. Spence was able to help me. The thing I like the most is I was never pushed to make continuing appointments after I was feeling better. The entire office makes you feel more like its about helping you then about just making more money. - RL

For the last couple of years, I have suffered with pain in my feet which definitely affected my quality of life.  I tried different podiatrists in TX and also in GA.  They were successful in treating symptoms but not the cause of the pain.  At my medical doctor's suggestion, I decided to make an appointment to try acupuncture.  From the very start of being treated by Dr. Edie Spence, I knew I was experiencing a new reaction to the pain in both feet.  I was so impressed with her calm, comforting and professional approach.  As I write this statement, about two months after my initial care, I am pretty much pain free.  I wish I had tried acupuncture first instead of last.  - E.M., Blue Ridge, GA

Since I started seeing Dr. Spence, just three months ago, my pain levels have gone from 9 or 10, to 2 or 3.  I'm sleeping better and I'm more active during the day.  She's helped my diabetic neuropathy, low back pain and even arthritis.  Thank you, you've made a huge difference in my life.  -J.S., Robbinsville, NC 

I have suffered low back problems and sciatica for five years.  Every place I went, I took my lumbar support pillow with me.  If I sat down for several minutes, my back would trouble me.  If I had to stoop over for a task, I would experience the pain of my sciatica throughout my leg. When I started therapy with Dr. Edie Spence, I found in her a meticulous and patient chiropractic doctor, who cared about every detail of my back problem.  She made each of my complaints her own concern.  With her persistent and hard-working attitude, she guided me through my therapy and educated me about my back care.  She sought to find out every small detail of my progress, and followed it closely.  After months of good labor, I finally started leaving my lumbar pillow behind, to enjoy a more free lifeystyle.  I have now learned how to maintain my back in good health, and avoid the pain that had followed me for years.  Thank you - Edie.  N.H, M.D.

Dear Dr. Edie Spence, I hope all is going well for you - I miss you!  I am so grateful for the treatment I received from you at the National College of Chiropractic.  Because of your caring, personalized treatment, and persistence in directing me in a program of fitness, I am enjoying a better quality of life.   It's a pleasure to know someone who is so dedicated and such a credit to your profession.  Sincere thanks, -P.B.

To Whom It May Concern:  It is my pleasure to take a moment and describe our experience with Dr.Edie Spence.  My thirteen-year-old daughter was experiencing pain in her legs, lower back and right foot as a result of overuse due to a demanding dance schedule.  My daughter had been treated with massage, ultrasound and the like, however, it was not until Dr. Spence performed a complete reassessment that we saw consistent, encouraging progress.  Dr. Spence went "above and beyond" in her research and diagnosis, developed a well-integrated treatment program including adjustments, exercises, orthotics and diet, and made sure that we understood what we were doing and why.  My daughter is doing well, is no longer afraid that she might have to give up dance, and knows she can take responsibility for how she feels.  We envy those who will benefit from Dr. Spence's dedication in the future.   Sincerely, - R.F. 

Dr. Spence is a very good doctor in all her fields.  She has helped my legs and arms very much with her treatments.  She thoroughly checks out your condition before making any treatments and is very interested in all her patients.  I surely recommend her!  - H. G.
