Having had chronic back problems, I began visiting Dr. McConnell several years ago. She was able to assess my problem areas and using the activator she has been able to dramatically improve my comfort. I now visit her for regular maintenance with the activator. The results have been fantastic!

I call "Dr. Amy" my miracle worker! She is kind, caring and so professional! For 5 years she and the Activator therapy technique have kept me as pain free as possible and able to live a very active life....quite a feat considering I have degenerated discs, a herniated disc, bad knee, and arthritis! She keeps me "balanced" for which I am so grateful! I highly recommend her, especially for someone who wants to avoid or delay surgery for as long as possible and live an active life!
Dr. McConnell is one of the most caring doctors I have ever been to. Her Activator method is extremely gentle but highly effective. I find my visits to be relaxing and productive.
"Dr. McConnell has helped me with both my neck and my back. I have found her to be highly skilled, knowledgeable, and very caring. She is wonderful."
Gary S., DDS
"After 38 years of practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery, I had accumulated musculoskeletal symptoms that did not respond to medication only. Dr. McConnell's precise examination process, coupled with her use of the Activator technique was successful in addressing my problems. The feedback provided by her examination at each visit allows her to tailor each treatment to address specific issues. I would heartily recommend Dr. McConnell's Activator approach to anyone requiring chiropractic treatment, particularly patients who wish to forgo the heavy physical manipulation frequently experienced in conventional chiropractic care. Her focused application of the activator treatment is patient friendly, and controlled in its' force. Dr. McConnell has demonstrably mastered this technique."
Susan S., RN, MS
"I have received chiropractic treatment for chronic neck and back pain for over 20 years, and have had the best relief from the activator technique. After relocating to Florida from the West Coast, I sought out chiropractors for continuation of care, but did not receive the relief I desired until I was treated by Dr. McConnell. Her diagnostic regimen, which is integrated into each treatment visit, allows her to adjust specific areas, using the activator, to achieve successful results, with minimal manipulation. I strongly recommend Dr. McConnell to anyone requiring chiropractic care, and would encourage anyone who has not yet received care using the activator to try this gentle technique."
Dr. Jonathan G., chiropractor
"As a chiropractor in practice for over 20 years, I am very particular as to who treats me, and seek the same level of expertise for those I care about. When my parents relocated to western Florida, I sought out a chiropractor that I felt was qualified to provide them with the same level of care as I would provide. Finding Dr. McConnell was a blessing. She is caring, gentle, and extremely proficient as a healthcare provider. I feel very assured that my parents are in great hands with Dr. McConnell. Thank you for taking care of my parents!"
