“Before I began taking the Metagenics products advised by Dr. Hensel, my blood pressure was averaging in the high 140’s over low 90’s. My physician made it very clear if this condition didn’t improve he would have me on Liptitor in the very near future. After a month of taking Cardiogenics Intensive Care, Super Garlic 6000 and EPA/DHA 720 capsules, my BP dropped to 125/79!! On my last visit to my physician he was very surprised at the BP readings, and simply said to continue to do what I was doing because it was working.

At the same time I also started using the Ultrameal Plus 360 twice daily, as part of my new lifestyle diet, I lost 9 pounds in 30 days, felt more energetic and had an overall better sense of well being. I have been able to maintain this loss and plan on losing an additional 10-15 lbs over the next 2-3 months. I highly recommend Dr. Hensel’s heart health program and the Metagenics line of products. If you take them properly, they work great!”

"I came to speak with Dr. Craner about a pain I was having in my shoulder. As she was investigating the cause of my shoulder pain, she asked if I had been getting headaches which led to a discussion about the jaw pain. For about the last month I’ve had to crack my jaw every morning when I woke up. It hadn't occurred to me that headaches and jaw pain would be things she could help with, but Dr. Craner explained how they were each related and then treated me. My shoulder felt much better after she worked on me and these last few mornings after treatment are the first mornings in a long time that I didn’t have painful cracking in my jaw when I woke up. I really appreciated the time Dr. Craner spent explaining everything to me. You can tell she really cares about her patients. The best part is that I feel huge relief already and have only had one treatment. Highly recommend!"

“This summer I was experiencing extreme pain in my shoulder that left me with an almost useless right arm. It was bad enough I was dropping things and I was positive I was headed for surgery… I met with Dr Hensel to see if he could at least relieve some of the pain I was in until I could get looked at by my primary Doctor. After going through some of the motions I couldn’t do and what I could he determined it wasn’t a tear at all. …After one session I felt a lot better and had more movement than I’d had in over a month. Three weeks later and some follow up advice and I feel almost 100% again… I’m back in the gym and feel almost no pain now when working my shoulder even when playing racquetball. I’ve been to other Chiropractors and I felt either rushed or leaving with almost no idea what the cause was or prevention methods. When Dr Hensel asked me about other pain I mentioned a few problems with my knee and he discovered my hips were out of line as well. I had no idea that a Chiropractor could do anything with a bad knee and would have never thought to ask. Dr Hensel had a great professional manner and really talked me through what was going on and genuinely was as happy as I was about how well it went. Without pause I would recommend Dr Hensel and Active Edge Chiropractic to anyone dealing with pain.”

“I had been experiencing an increasing numbness in both of my feet when I first discussed this problem with Doctor Jasmine… I thought it was a result of wearing poorly supported shoes. She began by adjusting my feet and toes which helped a whole bunch. Next she started treating my “tarsal tunnel” and prescribed a variety of exercises. I continue to do the therapies and am very happy to say that the numbness is nearly gone.”

"I finally found Dr Craner through a referral from a friend. I was having extremely debilitating pain that the medical profession had trouble diagnosing or treating. My doc finally sat me down and told me “we aren’t very good at soft tissue pain”. I saw six different Md’s over the course of a year, had an MRI, physical therapy, steroid injections, WITH NO RELIEF! Thank goodness for Dr Kraner. She took the time to look at me, she watched me move, and gradually got ME moving again. She stretched me, adjusted me and gave me exercises to do at home. I have referred many people to her with good feedback. I hope and pray I never get laid up like that again, but if I do she is my first resource."

After one session I have experienced some much needed relief from the relentless pain I was enduring. I know it will be a journey to wellness, but I am hopeful once again.

These chiropractors actually know what they are doing. I have been to a couple others in Columbus but found that you truly get what you pay for. It's the same with most things, really. You get what you pay for. If you are suffering from any ailments, aches, pains, nervous system problems, etc. or need nutritional testing and advice, don't hesitate to call AE. You will leave with a realization that they actually care about you and you getting better.

Dr. Hensel is great. He really gets to the root of the problem. He fixed the sciatica issues that I had been dealing with for years. It took some time, but I am now pain free.

Active Edge is an absolute gem in the Columbus Community. I have never experienced Chiropractic care like this and between me and my husband we have experienced a lot of different practitioners over the years. Dr. Craner and Dr. Hensel, a dynamite married duo, are extremely talented and care in ways that are above and beyond. I am beyond grateful to have found them. Move aside insurance, this is worth every penny we pay and it’s still reasonable. My body is getting a complete overhaul. I hold a lot of stress and tension in my shoulders and upper back, was in a minor car accident about 18 months ago which left me with some early onset carpal tunnel and am carrying 7-10 extra lbs. I was feeling worn down physically and emotionally, and just a few months ago received a depression diagnosis because of how “off” my body felt. I’m only 36 and am in decent shape. I felt despondent before I came here and now I feel like I am an active participant in feeling energized, strong and healthy. My carpal tunnel has improved significantly in just a couple of months and I am blown away by how many little discoveries Dr. Craner has made in my body to help heal me at a more profound level than anyone I’ve met. We’ve even addressed my posture, how I work out, and exercises to correct small movements that can have a huge impact in how I move and feel. Please check them out. They are incredible.

Hands down the best chiropractic practice I’ve ever been to. They are attentive, creative and practical from a functional health perspective. I love that they are so thorough and willing to do so many adjustments. Most chiropractors I’ve been to, and I’ve been to a lot around the county, tend to make all the same basic adjustments. I know they love what they are doing because Dr Erik and Dr Jasmine can’t wait to start working on me and help me feel better. PS. Dr Erik and Dr Jasmine, get you butts moving and start putting videos on YouTube!!! The peeps need to see what I’m talking about instead of reading it in a google review!!! ; )

I came to Active Edge after months of unsuccessful or barely successful treatment of dizzy spells. The spells consisted of visual problems, sensations of motion, and a severe feeling of being off-balance. Dr. Craner performed a two hour examination in order to try to determine a cause of the problem. Dr. Craner gave me her full attention and constantly informed me as to the purpose of everything that she was doing. She was able to find a possible cause and I walked out with an at-home treatment plan. In the two weeks since my appointment and continued at-home treatment, I have not experienced any symptoms. As a side note, it is a great and comfortable office!

Dr. Hensel and Amanda were very welcoming and helpful. I liked how Dr. Hensel listened carefully to me and remembered what I shared which was evidenced by his comments, questions, and suggestions. And I especially enjoyed his friendly hug.

Absolutely love these guys! They are so very personable, comforting, and always give the very best of care. I personally have used countless chiropractors in my past spanning over a couple decades, and have found that the typical chiropractor simply cracks and pops you and cya next week type of thing. Not so with active edge chiropractor. They focus on healing the patient as a whole so that the fewest number of visits needed are provided. I have used them for a chronic back pain dating back to my highschool years, which has been rectified! They also helped me with a shoulder injury and whiplash I received after a very bad car accident. At this time, I am very pleased to report that I have zero pain from the accident. When I was in a financial strain and struggled to keep my bills paid, they still cared about healing me instead of me needing to pay everything up front. They have not harassed me for payments at all and simply accept that which I am able to do. Absolutely amazing family business with impeccable professionalism that I will most certainly recommend to ANY friends or family!

Whether I go in with a specific issue or just for a maintenance adjustment, I always feel better walking out than I did walking in.

I am very impressed with everything I have learned from Dr. Hensel. His insights on what I need to do to make certain muscles work properly when exercising have been very beneficial.

I just wanted to update my review, Dr. Jasmine and Dr. Erik of course are still simply awesome at what they do! They truly care for your health, and you are going to be hard pressed to find a more comprehensive chiropractic and functional medicine & wellness practice in town. Not only have they been doing a great job with helping me recover from many old sports injuries / surgeries, but their detox / clean eating plan paved the way for over 60 lbs of weight loss! Thanks guys - I recommend you to everyone!

Anyone that frequents chiropractors knows that only a few have the ability to really get it done right. Fortunately, I have only needed adjustments a few times in Columbus and each time, I wasn't thrilled so I kept looking. Optimistically, I contacted Active Edge based solely on rave reviews online. Amy (scheduler) accommodated me on short notice. Dr Erik took his time with diagnostic questions and movement exercises, then used unique techniques (my ab muscles?) to put everything back into place. Absolutely a flawless visit. My search stops here.

Everyone is so friendly. Amy was very nice and welcoming when I walked in, she offered me coffee and tea and gave me a tour of the facility which I really appreciated her taking the time to do that. Dr Ryan Cahall spent a lot of time with me and I didn't feel the slightest bit rushed. I could tell he genuinely cared and wanted to help me with my very painful neck strain. I will be going back for follow up. Seems like a really great place- would definitely recommend to friends!
