Heller Healthcare Offers New Vision
for 2020
The Brunswick News                                               January 21, 2020

“The vision of having sick care, wellness care, and functional medicine all together, working together is what I’ve always wanted for me and my family. We’ve built that and now divided things up so it’s more clear. We have our sick care and primary care which is Brunswick Urgent Care, we have chiropractic and massage under Heller Chiropractic, and then we have our regenerative and functional medicine under Golden Isles Functional Medicine. Three different types of healthcare, all next to each other, all communicating and working together. How awesome is it for your wellness doctor and your medical doctor to work side by side under one roof to meet any need? That was the need — see a need, fill a need, right?” she said with a laugh.

“People in our community now have one place to go, whether they’re sick or they are well, or they want alternative medicine or traditional medicine.”

Treatment Restores Patient's Outlook on Life
The Brunswick News                                               December 3, 2019

“I tried a lot of different things. Pain management, chiropractors, physical therapy — none of it worked. Every year it was getting worse. Finally, in 2018, my pain management doctor finally talked me into the epidural steroid. The insurance company might as well have burned that money because it didn’t do anything.” Geraldine stated.

Then, a friend suggested that Geraldine give Heller Healthcare and Brunswick Urgent Care a try.  Geraldine took her friend’s advice and scheduled an appointment. Dr. Jen Heller vividly remembers the early days of Geraldine’s treatment.

Geraldine continues to see Heller Healthcare for chiropractic and other supportive modalities. And she cannot say enough about the care Heller Healthcare’s staff has provided.

“The biggest difference I have seen in Geraldine is her attitude and love for life. I met her when she wasn’t her best, and now I see smiles, jokes, and an attitude like I’ve never seen before” laughs Heller.

“You feel like you’re home. They listen and when you’re here, they’re on your time not the other way around. I would recommend that anyone come here,” Geraldine said.

Patient Finds Relief In Treatment
The Brunswick News                                               November 5, 2019

“So it came from all those years of lifting stuff. And one morning I woke up in excruciating pain. I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t sit. I couldn’t lay in the bed. It was all painful.” Ponsell stated.

Following his treatment Ponsell remarked, “By the end of the first day though, I was feeling better. Day two was better, and on day three I was able to drive up to Athens to move my daughter into her sorority house.” 

It’s just been a few weeks since this treatment and he is already back in the gym and enjoying the outdoors.  For Ponsell, it truly has been a lifesaver.

“I’ve told everybody I can to get in here. People have been watching how my recovery has gone and are impressed. It’s been great, I’m going fishing tomorrow,” he said with a smile.

Couple Rediscovers Life Without Pain

“I have no back pain now. I used to have low back pain that ran down my legs. I can bend over and touch my toes now,” Harry said. “And I’m 75. You either spend the money or you live in pain ... that was easy for us.”

“It’s been incredible. I don’t think I’ve seen results as fast as he has but I have seen results,” Millie said. “I did have a bit of a set-back with a fall (since my stem cell injections) but then Dr. Jen gave me chiropractic treatment and massage. Now, I am back to where I was.”

Patient Finds Relief From Severe Arthritis Pain

Feeling like she was no longer in control of her body was unacceptable to her. Even though she has been a longtime yoga practitioner and very active, she knew it just wasn’t enough to combat the arthritis.

Kerr was a good candidate for the stem cell therapy program offered by Heller Healthcare.   Following her stem cell treatment she saw improvement right away.  

“I think for anyone struggling with joint issues or really any kind of pain. It’s worth it, even if you started with one joint, it would be very helpful,” Kerr said just two months after her treatment.

Stem Cell Treatment Rejuvenates Whole Body
The Brunswick News                                               August 13, 2019

“This is a tremendously wonderful practice.   And, it’s not just chiropractic and it’s not just stems cells….” she remarked about Heller Healthcare.  “I’m just very impressed with the office and the staff here.   It all flows so well together.”

Within just four weeks of her stem cell injections, Singletary already has an entirely new lease on life. No longer does she live her life confined with her daily 7 to 10 pain.   "I do still have some pain but it’s nothing like it was and it’s really not been that long. I’m 90 percent pain free now and the full effects don’t show until four months," she said with a smile.  "I would tell people who are considering it — don't wait. Don’t live in pain because this is the real deal. I feel like a teenager again."

Treatment Allows Patient To Live Fuller Life

“For me, thinking about knee replacement surgery was just impossible with how many people and animals I have depending on me,” she said. “Plus my thinking has always been there’s got to be a more natural way ... where I don’t have to put in something that doesn’t belong in my body.” Stephens added.

 Just six weeks post Stem Cell Therapy, Stephens’s documented developments are incredible. Her mobility has greatly improved; the time it takes her to work is back down to as fast as she has ever been. Her knee pain is hardly noticeable, and she no longer walks with a limp. Her return to an active lifestyle has completely changed her outlook on life and living the way she wants to.

“I should have done it years ago. It’s so worth it. I suffered for so long,” Stephens said.

Physical Therapist Shares Patients' Journey

Haigh’s ability to relate to patients has certainly helped make her job easier. And recently she underwent a procedure that many of her patients have experienced — stem cell therapy.


“This (stem cell therapy) is such a nice alternative to surgery. You always want to avoid surgery whenever you can. So, whether it’s through different holistic treatment methods — stem cell, physical therapy — it’s nice to have that option,” Haigh said.

“I was adamant that I wasn’t going to have surgery. I was going to try everything else first,” Moore said. “I would only do it (surgery) as a last resort.”


“I would tell anyone who has been in my situation whether it’s knees, shoulders, back or elbows ... call Dr. Jen — really,” she said. “It’s an investment in yourself and you are worth it.”

Worley didn’t have to wait long to see results. After receiving the stem cell injections, she was pain free within a week.  


My only regret is that I wish I had done it sooner,” she said.

“There are so many things that I just don’t think we know about until we find a gem of a place like Jen’s (Heller Healthcare),” she said. “Just that guidance of going through that, makes the difference.”
