I feel better than I have in years

I started seeing Dr. Joel and Aligned Medical Group because I had pulled my back and my mobility was severely limited. I wasn’t managing the pain very well, I was very apprehensive about any manipulation – thinking my back wouldn’t tolerate it. Well, Dr. Joel said at the point [where] I was he wouldn’t do any of that. [Instead, he started] working with just my muscles that were inflamed using electric stimulation and ice and gentle, targeted exercises and stretches. I can’t emphasize enough the relief these gave me! And having exercises to do at home gave me something to work on. Dr. Joel slowly added the spinal manipulation that now my body knows when it needs again. So, after approximately 6 months of Dr. Joel’s and Mike, the exercise physiologist and the massage therapist, I feel better than I have in years – more limber, stronger and able to take on the tasks of each day. I thought I was going to Paoli Chiropractic to heal my back – I’ve not only done that but also gained friends that truly care and are an important part of my life.

The staff was so friendly and compassionate

Aligned Medical Group has helped me immensely. I first visited the office desperate for relief from my lower back pain. I have a herniated disc in my lower back that was making it impossible for me to move. As a last effort before surgery I made an appointment with Dr. Stutzman. It was the best decision I made! The staff was so friendly and compassionate. Dr. Stutzman and Dr. Tarry worked with me while I went through decompression treatments. By following their direction and treatment I am now able to function normally.

I can play all my favorite sports.

One day I was at my house, and I was in my kitchen which has a concrete floor, and I passed out. I had banged my head and neck hard on the floor. I was in so much pain when I first started coming here. When I did my stretches, they were hard, but definitely worth it! Now that I came to Aligned Medical, my neck, head, and upper back has been better than ever! After the first couple days of coming here, I could even see the difference. Now after coming here on maintenance care for about 9 months, I can play all my favorite sports, jump on my trampoline, and run around just like I could before, and even better because they don’t just work on the areas that I am in pain, they work everything around it too, just to make sure all my muscles are working good together.

Paoli are all top-notch, and the atmosphere is friendly

I originally came in for PT and chiropractic care while recovering from a herniated disc (sciatica being the main symptom). The chiropractors, physical therapists and staff at Paoli are all top-notch, and the atmosphere is friendly and supportive. I highly recommend Paoli Chiropractic!

Thank you!

I just want to say ‘Thank you!’ for your exceptional care. I have been suffering for close to ten years with chronic neck and back pain, and while I am certainly not healed, your services have provided more relief than anything else I have tried (and I have tried dozens!). Your attention to detail and listening is refreshing difference from so many others who just go through the motions.

I look forward to utilizing your services in the future as I continue to heal.

My pain was improved greatly.

After delivering a baby, I started with severe pain. I had trouble with walking, sleeping at night and even caring for my baby. The care I received was above expectations! My pain was improved greatly with Joint and Trigger Point Injections alongside chiropractic care. I would highly recommend Aligned Medical Group to anyone seeking pain relief.

I highly recommend them!!

I was experiencing chronic, low back pain as a result of an old injury, combined with years of general “wear and tear”. The pain was constant and crippling at times. The problem had an effect on my daily activities. I found Aligned Medical Group on the internet and began a therapy program with Dr. Stutzman. After a few months on the program, I have regained much of my strength. I learned how to manage my pain through good health and exercise. Thanks to all of the friendly and helpful support from the Aligned Medical Group. I highly recommend them!!

Highly recommended!

I started coming to Aligned Medical Group to help with migraine headaches that had worsened since my last child was born. After the first few visits I had a noticeable difference in my pain, especially in my neck and head. And since I have started my treatment, 6 weeks ago, I have had a headache for 3 days. Previously, I had migraines for almost half of the days of the month. The entire staff has been wonderful, and I will continue coming here for any future problems. Highly recommended!

In 2 more weeks the pain was 95% gone.

The reason I came here is because I really hurt my back getting my luggage from the overhead in the plane. I could hardly move because of extreme lower back pain. Coming 2-3 times a week for 4 weeks VASTLY IMPROVED my back with only a little pain. In 2 more weeks the pain was 95% gone. The doctors were easy to talk to and they listened to what I said. The PT also was very informed about stretches, explaining the why of each exercise and [was] non-critical and VERY encouraging. I was hesitant about this type of therapy but I very much recommend this group to anybody.”

I very much appreciate Dr. Stutzman

As an athlete, I am very skeptical about my doctors and who I let work on my body. Dr. Joel and his staff are the thorough, patient, and informative group I have been searching for. I very much appreciate Dr. Stutzman’s willingness to use the new technology out there and not be afraid to try new things. He is open-minded, not stubborn or set in his ways like many doctors can be. He’s the best in our area - and I’ve been to them all.

They are the best!

I experience chronic neck and back pain due to scoliosis, which is aggravated by sitting in front of the computer, at my job, and playing golf a few times a week.

Manipulations and massage therapy have provided major relief and increased flexibility.

I really appreciate the professionalism, efficient billing, excellent hygiene practices and the welcoming, patient and kind attitude of everyone in the office.

Joel and his entire staff actively listen, evaluate and ask for feedback. They really care about making improvements to ensure that I receive the most effective treatment.

I never thought I would find someone that matched my brother who is a chiropractor practicing in Florida. But it only took a couple of treatments with Joel and I was truly satisfied.

I have recommended Paoli Chiropractic to several friends and family. They are the best!

I was impressed by the high quality of care

After spending 4 years in a career that involves coaching medical practices on quality improvement measures, I was impressed by the high quality of care that Aligned Medical Group seems to provide so effortlessly. Dr. Stutzman and Santina run a practice that provides the accessible, comprehensive, consistent, organized and compassionate care that I work so hard to get other practices to implement!

My treatment here has been great.

My treatment here has been great. In less than 2 months I have received more good chiropractic care and exercise supervision than I have received in ten years of treatment from three prior chiropractors. My treatment here thus far has been great. And I think the sessions will have long-lasting, positive effect for me.

The entire team at AMG is dedicated to the health and well being of their patients.

We cannot say enough good things about Aligned Medical Group. My husband began seeing Dr. Stutzman almost 2 years ago for a chronic back issue. He had such a good experience that I began seeing Dr. Stutzman for a shoulder & neck issue. Dr. Stutzman developed plans for each of us that provided much needed relief. We continue to see Dr. Stutzman and his team as needed for ongoing wellness. The entire team at AMG is dedicated to the health and well being of their patients. We highly recommend them to anyone needing chiropractic care. We also love the office mascot, Maggie- she’s a great Goodwill Ambassador!

I was able to feel results that first week.

My lower back went out on me after completing a grueling move back to the area from Arizona. I was unable to stand up or walk and had to crawl to get anywhere. With a newborn in the house and two other kids running around the house, I had to get better soon! I reached out to the Paoli Chiropractic Group and Dr. Joel’s kind staff got me in to see him immediately. I was able to feel results that first week and after completing my treatment, my back is loose and as strong as it was 15 years ago! I have regained a lot of mobility and am back to playing soccer three times a week and running around with the kids!

My hip and shoulder feel the best they ever have!!

My hip was causing extreme discomfort, so I looked to Dr. Joel for help. All of his team were supportive in my care, from exercise to massage, as time passed I began to feel wonderful, my motions were increased and my pain was gone. I then damaged my shoulder, Dr. Joel sent me for xrays, and an MRI just to make sure there was no serious damage. Good news: no damage, I then started the rehab routine on my shoulder, starting slowly and gently increasing every time I visited. Today both my hip and shoulder feel the best they ever have!! Thank you to Dr. Joel and his team, I feel wonderful.

I absolutely look forward to my visits

I just couldn't let the weekend pass without sharing some of my thoughts with you. I am filled with gratitude and I have new hope for my future thanks to you and your organization. Your hard work and clear vision is coming together nicely to attract people like me that need great care. For that I am grateful.

I certainly feel major changes in my body in a short time. This was only accomplished with the help, support and guidance of a dedicated team of individuals. The synergistic approach to diagnosing, healing, strengthening and helping me to find the balance in myself and my body is what I have dreamed of. With a complex set of chronic problems we were able to make an accurate assessment together and get right on with a solid treatment program with measurable results. This brings much relief and peace of mind.

I was handled with care and respect from my first phone interview to the greeting in the office by Maggie and Co. I was concerned about possibly falling thru the cracks as I saw the growth, expansion and organized chaos in the office. To my amazement you never missed a beat through my entire intake and therapies. Very cool... I thought to myself, I could get used to this!

I absolutely look forward to my visits to your fun and healing little ecosystem that you guys created. I truly believe that I will be standing tall after going through your carefully prescribed custom program for ME and my personal goals. For that I am encouraged!

Please accept my sincere appreciation and thankfulness for your efforts. Please pass along my thanks to Maggie oh and yes the team for sharing their love energy each day to make my days better. I am committed to wellness and very determined to find my best self. Thank you all for your help.

You have seen me at my worst and took me right in to maybe help bring out my best. I can't wait to show you the real Al when I'm smiling and centered.

I wouldn’t have the quality of life I do now without Aligned Medical Group.

When I went for my first visit at Paoli Chiropractic, I had to stand in the waiting room to fill out my paperwork. I wasn’t able to sit down due to pain in my lower back and leg from herniated discs. Id been hurt for about a year and a half and had tried several treatments and therapies but nothing stuck. Dr. Stutzman started me on a treatment plan that included rehab and flexion distraction. I had some relief that very first visit. I stuck with the plan and did my “homework” and within weeks I was returning normal activities and then some. A few months later and I continue to work at it but I know I wouldn’t have the quality of life I do now without Aligned Medical Group. I am so grateful!

I’d recommend Aligned Medical Group to anyone!

When I initially started coming to Aligned Medical Group I suffered from excruciating lower back pain. Dr. Stutzman and Dr. Lebovitz worked together to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that included spinal adjustments, sacroiliac joint injections and physical therapy and I am happy to report that my symptoms have improved tremendously!! I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with the doctors and all of the office staff! They are all very friendly and accommodating and my appointments are always on time.

I highly recommend Aligned Medical Group.

I have been visiting Dr. Stutzman for the past 2 years and after being in chronic pain for almost 10 years, I can gladly say that I am not in chronic pain anymore. Dr. Stutzman is the 5th chiropractor I have visited and the only one that I trust with managing my pain and keeping me from regressing back to being in chronic pain. I am really impressed with the way his staff help and care for all of his patients. They go the extra step to make sure the patient’s comfort and health is top priority. I highly recommend Aligned Medical Group to anyone that is tired of suffering from chronic pain.

Therapy that had me pain free and normalized

I have been using the professional healing therapeutic services of Aligned Medical Group since 2003. Suffering with 2 neck injuries causing tremendous pain which was limiting my quality of life, the staff and, in particular Dr. Stutzman, had me back to all normal activities and free of pain within a very short period of time. In 2012 I came down with debilitating Sciatica pain, which was found to be caused by a herniated disc. Aligned Medical established a therapy program using decompression, exercises, manipulations and stimulus therapy that had me pain free and normalized within several months. I highly recommend Aligned Medical Group for all to use in their recovery. Having been in Quality Management for 20 years, I know a quality organization when I see it, and they are tops.

I cannot recommend them enough.

I started to see Dr. Stutzman in 2009 after I began to have chronic lower to mid-back pain. He was very kind and took the time to learn about me and my symptoms. I have been a patient of this practice for over 5 years and I cannot recommend them enough. The doctors are thorough and take the time to learn about you so they can get to the root of the problem. The staff here have made my visits enjoyable and fun – which I always appreciate!

I can come in and get excellent care.

Having come to Aligned Medical Group for lower back issues, I have remained a patient for over 3 years. I know when I have a muscular/skeletal issue that I can come in and get excellent care.

The bottom line is—I get better. The staff is wonderful and very helpful and they teach you how to help yourself. I have recommended this office to other people and will continue to recommend them as being a great practice.”

I am back to my normal routines

I was recommended to the office by a rugby teammate that works here. I was suffering for a bulging disc due to lifting weights and unable to perform some everyday tasks. However, after a month of expert chiro and rehab from the knowledgable and friendly staff, I am back to my normal routines without any back pain. I would highly recommend you choose Aligned Medical Group for your next treatment. I am grateful for them getting me back to normal and I prepare for another championship season with my rugby team.

I’m headache free.

Having back pain all my life, I thought I had learned to live with a little pain and discomfort here and there. That was until I had a headache every day for 3 months straight. Back pain runs in my family and both parents had back and neck surgery and suggested I do the same. I was determined to find a way to alleviate the pain without surgery – that’s where Aligned Medical Group came to my rescue. After a few month treatment plan of spinal manipulation, physical therapy exercises and massage, I am happy to say I’m headache free. I can’t thank you enough!”

This program really works.

I originally came to Aligned Medical Group for arthritis and for a sore rotator cuff tendon. While receiving excellent treatment I saw Synergy Weight Loss clients and was impressed with their results. I started the program 2 1/2 months ago and had tried numerous other programs, but nothing worked. I was on the verge of getting surgery as I was 80 pounds overweight and a prime target for a heart attack. I have lost 37 pounds and am almost halfway to my goal. This program really works but most importantly, it has made me change my eating behaviors and made me accountable for my progress. The support of the staff is amazing and I am so grateful to have my life back. Also no more arthritis pain-that improved with the weight loss.

Today I’m totally pain free.

I came for chiropractic treatments for a pinched nerve in my lower back and a bad shoulder. When I came I had little hope of ever being pain free again, the pain was so bad, but I figured I would try. Today I’m totally pain free and have recovered full range of motion in my back and shoulder. All I can say is that the doctors and staff are “magicious”!! They are wonderful, caring people, who really know what they are doing and truly care about their patients.

Medical Weight Loss program was AWESOME!!!

Well, let’s see, where can I start… the Synergy Medical Weight Loss program was AWESOME!!!

I’ve spent a lot of time in my life, wanting to lose weight and eat better, but never really gave any effort to doing it. I thought the weight would just fall off, and it didn’t. I knew what I needed to do, but had no interest in doing it. I didn’t want to stop eating all the foods I loves. I tried doing other weight loss methods, result nil, and would stop completely. About 6-7 months ago, I realized that for any weight loss program I tried, I never gave 100% effort, ever. So this was the time to do it.

While doing chiropractic rehab, I met a GREAT group of people and they introduced me to SMWL. I was a little hesitant at first because I knew my track record with trying to lose weight. But decided to take the plunge anyway, vowing to give it 100%. At this point in my life, if I’m going to spend more money on trying to lose weight, I really need to put in the work. In addition to my rehab, I was walking 3-4 times a week (4 miles each day) and not seeing any weight loss. So, I figured I needed a little more help or as I like to say, “kick it up a notch.”

Starting the weight loss program was a little tough in the beginning because I am a very picky eater. Trying to find clean healthy foods to eat that didn’t amount to the calories I was limited to was a hard task for me. But once I got into the swing of things, it became easier to stay within those limits, eat good foods vs the bad foods. Everything just became even easier once I saw the weight disappearing and my clothing started to fall off.

After the first 30 days of limited calories, it was a breeze when I was given an increase in my caloric intake. The key to making it through the first 30 days is learning foods and nutrition (calories, carbs, fat, protein, sodium, etc.). I just kept on my path of clean eating, less carbs, less fat, more protein and more water. Once you start feeling great from not eating all the foods that tired you out and weigh you down, you continued to crave that great feeling.

I’m coming up on my last 2 weeks of the program and I am proud to say that I am almost down 50 lbs and I feel great!!! No headaches (knock on wood), no signs of acid reflux, I can enjoy a salad without it repeating on me. I work out 3-5 days a week, eat decent, filling foods and again, I feel great!! And I’m praying to come high blood pressure meds soon…

If you give it 100%, it will give you 100%!!!!!!!!!!!! Eat clean, drink water, exercise!!!

Believe in yourself and you will get the results you are looking for. I did!!!

THANK YOU SYNERGY AND THE ENTIRE STAFF OF DR. STUTZMAN’S OFFICE!!! You guys are awesome and I mean it with all of my heart!!!

3 months ago, I came in to see Dr. Stutzman and I could hardly walk. My joints were swollen and my muscles so stiff, it was painful to get out of bed every day.

Aligned Medical are really the best in the business

After having severe heel pain for several months, my orthopedic diagnosed me with Plantar Fasciitis in March 2011. At this time I received orthotics, a cortisone injection in my heel and stretching exercises to do at home. The injection wore off after a couple of weeks and the pain returned.

A co-worker told me about the Graston Technique. She told me I needed to find someone who administers this technique because it really helped her with her Plantar Fasciitis. I went online and top research this treatment and look for a provider and came across Aligned Medical Group. I cannot say enough good things about this practice and the people that work there. I had a pretty severe case of Plantar Fasciitis and the doctor told me it may take some time, but assured me that the Graston Treatment could help my pain. I started treatment at the end of May 2011 and by Sept. 1, 2011 I was about 98% better. I was walking with almost no heel pain. I could even walk in my bare feet (which is something I had not done in a long time). I am no longer in therapy, but I still wear my orthotics and do my stretching exercises and icing. You must keep up with this part of the therapy because it really helps you achieve the pain free results you are looking for.
The people at Aligned Medical are really the best in the business. I talked to others when I was in treatment (some with Plantar Fasciitis) and everyone agrees that hands down these people are the best at what they do. Everyone is very knowledgable, patient and can answer any questions you may have.

Call Aligned Medical Group and try the Graston Technique. You won’t be sorry.

Within a couple of weeks I felt a marked improvement.

I came to Aligned Medical Group when my neck was causing me excruciating pain. Dr. Joel Stutzman started me on a 3 day a week regiment that included treatment, muscle stim, and ice. Within a couple of weeks I felt a marked improvement with much less pain, numbness, and weakness (hands). The visits decreased gradually to two times per week, then one time per week, then every other week for a couple of months I felt completely “cured” but chose to continue with the doctor once a month to ensure ongoing neck health. Everyone in the office is knowledgeable, friendly, and committed to patient care. Thank you!

I am so very thankful to Dr. Stutzman and his team!

For more than a year I was having pain in the front of my throat that was starting to affect my voice. The following year consisted of 4 different doctors, blood tests, ultrasounds, x-rays, an MRI, steroids, antacids, and an endoscopy, all which came back unremarkable. Ready to just give up I came to see Dr. Stutzman. After about 3 weeks of treatment on my neck I started to experience some improvement. Dr. Stutzman mentioned adding massage in to help speed things up and within a month my pain was nearly gone and my voice almost back to normal. After 3 months of treatments, home stretches and exercise my pain is gone and my voice is completely back to normal. I have learned how to take care of my neck and “read” my muscles. I am so very thankful to Dr. Stutzman and his team!

I look forward to coming each week.

I was referred to Aligned Medical Group by 2 very good friends when I started having chronic problems with my lower back. My regular physician prescribed me muscle relaxers without any exercise or stretching to prevent the problem from recurring. I wanted more than just healing my back pain—I want it not to go out again. Coming here has been an amazing experience. The combination of chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy and muscle stimulation has not only alleviated my back pain but has started to strengthen my back and I have become educated about what I can do to prevent future re occurrence. The staff is fun, knowledgeable and approachable. I look forward to coming each week.

Thanks

No other chiropractic practice could solve my neck pain.

I came do Dr. Joel after experiencing years of on-again, off-again pain in my neck as the result of a rear end collision. Under Dr. Stutzman's care, I have not had even ONE twinge of pain since 2009. The entire office is involved in one's care-- from the exercise therapists to the personal visits for realignment with Dr. Stutzman. I'm NEVER LEAVING!! I continue to follow the office's recommendations for exercise at home and continue to visit every two months for re-alignment. This place is GREAT-- very friendly staff and fantastic results (no other chiropractic practice could solve my neck pain)!!!

I would recommend Paoli Chiropractic to anyone...and already have!

I was diagnosed with a severely herniated disc (disc extrusion, or “rupture”) and sciatica. I could not stand straight or walk without pain shooting down my leg. On our vacation last summer, my husband was pushing me in a wheelchair. After being told I need surgery, I heard about decompression therapy and decided to go for a free consult with Dr. Stutzman. By the time he finished talking with me, I realized that everything he explained just made sense, and I was anxious to begin therapy. After all, what did I have to lose? Dr. Stutzman and his staff are such a pleasure to work with. They are extremely knowledgeable, and so friendly and caring that you feel like part of their family. It was not hard to put my complete faith in Dr. Stutzman; and I dedicated myself to following his advice and doing everything he told me to do. When I would get frustrated, he'd assure me that I was getting better even if I couldn't tell. He never rushed me and always took time to answer my questions. Today I am standing straight, walking on a treadmill, and have no more pain! I feel like I have gotten my life back- and without surgery! I will be forever grateful to Dr. Stutzman and his staff. I would recommend Paoli Chiropractic to anyone...and already have!

I was very happy with the experience.

I started with the practice having neck, shoulder, and lower back pain. I was treated by other chiropractors who only treated the problem. This practice developed an exercise program along with treatment of pain. I have recommended the practice to friends and coworkers. The office staff is very friendly. I was very happy with the experience.

The pain is done and has not returned

I had better movement and was able to enjoy more of my day.

I came to Aligned Medical Group after seeing an ad in the Community Courier paper for Downingtown. I went to the website and was quite impressed by the wealth of information I found, in particular on Graston Technique which I had never heard of. I scheduled a consultation (free!!). I had an accident in Sept 2008 and had been in numerous treatment plans that did not resolve my pain. Dr. Stutzman did an exam and recommended a follow up MRI which showed I had additional damage in my neck. 2 months into his care with his staff and I saw my pain starting to diminish. I had better movement and was able to enjoy more of my day without being as tired and a lot less pain. Three months of his care with Graston Technique turned me into a new woman and a believer in Graston Technique. He accomplished what 2 ½ years of doctors, pills, massage therapy, and physical therapy could not do. I would recommend his practice and Graston Technique to anyone who is looking into it. Dr. Stutzman improved what was causing my pain and designed a treatment plan around that. All of his staff are great to work with.”

All of the personnel are well trained

“When you think you need help with a “back” or “spine” problem I recommend contacting Paoli Chiropractic Group under the direction of Joel Stutzman, D.C.. All of the personnel are well trained, pleasant to work with, and on time.

I began treatments for relief of a spine spur. Since the appointment recommended by my PCP could not be scheduled for 2 ½ weeks, my neighbor told me about Paoli Chiropractic.

Although I am not completely back to where I would desire to be the treatment is steadily progressing.

Thank you all!”

Completely pain free!

I had a recurring pain in my lower back that no amount of stretching, exercise or ice seemed to cure. I came to Aligned Medical Group and Dr. Joel pinpointed the issue immediately and planned a course of treatment. Within just a couple of sessions, I saw major relief. By the end of my few weeks of sessions with the doctors, I was completely pain free!

Finally—some relief.

My ‘old’ Chiropractor closed his practice. When I was in enough discomfort, I followed him to Aligned Medical Group. I had lower back pain, neck, and shoulder pain—(neck and shoulder pain from auto accident YEARS AGO!)—I had been to physical therapy, but no relief – It was recommended that I try Graston—2 times a week for a month – finally—some relief. I am continuing with the Graston treatments and my range of motion has improved to almost 100% and the pain in my shoulder has subsided to about a 2 or 3! I recommend Graston and Paoli Chiropractic very highly.”

1st class experience.

It was mid-August of 2010 when I severely strained my rotator cuff while playing the sand volleyball. Dr. Stutzman estimated that it would take 2-3 months for me to recover 75%. Under the care of the doctors, I experienced significant recovery after a month of therapy. Both doctors are experienced, canny and enthusiastic at recommending other complimentary treatments and activities to accelerate the recovery. The friendly and helpful staff and assistants certainly make my therapy the 1st class experience.

I am thrilled to be headache-free!

I first discovered that chiropractic care could cure my headaches about 15 years ago after seeking treatment for an acute back problem. That discovery was life changing and ended the chronic headaches (and analgesic addiction) I had suffered from for half my life.

What I’ve figured out since that time is that not all chiropractic care is equal. For almost a dozen years, I kept mostly headache-free by receiving an adjustment at least twice a month; that was about as long as I could go without the headaches recurring. Upon changing providers and seeing another chiropractor, I eventually found my headaches returning with greater frequency and intensity. Massage therapy helped a good deal through some of the worst episodes but I wanted long-term relief and I finally found that with Dr. Stutzman and Aligned Medical Group. The combination of the chiropractic care and stretching and strengthening exercises has made a huge difference and I’m now able to go an entire month with very little or no headache, especially if I also get a therapeutic massage.

It has taken me a long time to believe that my headaches, even when they seem to be migraine-like or sinus headaches, are actually tension headaches caused not just by the pressures of a hectic life, but by the physical stresses of a desk job and working on the computer all day. I truly feel that the exercises in combination with the adjustments have made a huge difference. If I ever leave the area and need a new chiropractor I will seek out another practice that uses all three modalities (manual therapy, exercise therapy and massage therapy). I am thrilled to be headache-free!

My pain level decreased over 75%

I thought I needed surgery. For two years I suffered from debilitating low back pain. I tried acupuncture, injections and other chiropractors with no success. Then I met Dr. Joel, he talked me out of what I thought was my only option, surgery. He explained that I needed to treat the whole physiological problem, and recommended that I try the spinal decompression program that he guaranteed would help. Within two months of starting treatment my pain level decreased over 75% and since has dropped to a minimal amount. Dr. Joel and his courteous staff, through their programs, have given me back the mobility that I had years ago and have educated me how to take care of my back to avoid such painful injuries.
