Chiropractic Testimonials

“There is no cure for Neuropathy, there are drugs you can try, but you just have to deal with it” That is what the other doctors say about PN, NOW there is something that can not only take away the pain and numbness but also really help grow back nerves in my feet that have died. and believe it or not, The lasers really work. Feet are warm, no sharp pain, tingling feeling is gone, ability to sleep at night, when feet are better life is better. Thanks for giving us hope and answers!

“Mostly I was told there was nothing that could be done for the nerves and that pain medication was the only help. I reacted very badly to the meds for epilepsy and also to the ones for depression. I could not take them at all and the regular pain meds don’t work on this pain. I have also tried many alternative medical solutions including acupuncture, acupressure, vitamin B shots, and chelation therapy. Nothing helped. Then I found the pain institute and am really excited that in only 10 sessions the pain is 50% less and the feeling in both feet is 30% improved. I look forward to even more progress as I continue the sessions.

I have been every where and seen everyone, I have never been so comprehensively examined and so compassionately care for as I have by this staff. My back pain cost me lost time at work, MD had me on drugs that made me crazy, too much to tell. The lasers turned my life around so now I function pain and drug free.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Acton for approx 6 years. Before I started coming I had real bad back pain. Every 2 or 3 weeks it would go out. I could barely walk because of my back pain. Ever since I’ve been coming to get adjusted I’ve seen a real, real, real big improvement. I hardly have any pain or stiffness at all now! I would recommend him to anybody!

I’ve been coming to see Doctor Acton for several years now. Before I came here I had real problems and since coming here Doctor Acton has done wonders on my legs, my hips, my back, everywhere! He has just done a fantastic job and I’d like to praise him for it!

I started coming to Doctor Acton 15 years ago by bringing my mom to get adjusted. I saw what he was doing for my mom so I decided to start coming. I had problems with stiff neck. I would wake up in the morning and not able to move my neck and since I’ve been coming to Doctor Acton I haven’t had stiff neck. If I get a little tenderness in there I come in for an adjustment and by the time I get home there is no more pain. He has really helped me with my neck and I appreciate that.

I started coming to Doctor Acton many years ago when I brought my mother in for an adjustment. I had a very bad migraine headache that day, and he explained to me what he was doing for my mom and he wanted to check me out. I listened to the explanation; he knew exactly where the pain was at in my back and has now cured my migraines by 90% and I think that is excellent!

I suffered from neck pain, migraine headaches, and pain throughout my entire body. My medical doctor’s diagnosis was Fibromyalgia. The majority of my symptoms were the result of almost two years of cancer treatments. After five years of total disability, my mother suggested that I see Dr. Acton. It was an answer to my prayers. After six months of chiropractic care, I was able to return to work full time. I am healthier than I have ever been in my life. Chiropractic care is now my primary health care and always will be.

I had pain from head to toe, suffering from headaches, sinus, upper and lower back pain. Being a coach it became evident that I would not be able to participate with my students during class. My dad suggested that I come see Dr. Acton. I was very skeptical, I was not sure a chiropractor could help any of my symptoms. I have now been a patient of Dr. Acton’s for well over a year; ALL of my symptoms are almost gone. No headaches, no sinus problems, he even helped me with my knee, which had bothered me since I was a teenager. Chiropractic care has changed my life; I will be a chiropractic patient for life.

I went to my family physician because I was having severe headaches and I couldn’t open my mouth very wide. The pain in my jaw was incredible and it was locked in place. My doctor wanted to give me some pills. I knew that wasn’t the answer. I came to see Dr. Acton and after one adjustment my headache was gone and did not come back. My jaw pain is now completely gone and no more popping every time I open my mouth. I would like to tell the whole world about the benefits of chiropractic care.

When my medical doctor recommended that I come to see Dr. Acton with my Vertigo, I was amazed. I had been under chiropractic care before and did notice that my neck was shifted to the right. My dizziness was getting so bad that I began to miss a lot of work. I felt like I did not have any control of my body. After one adjustment I could tell a big difference, I had more control of my body. After being under Dr. Acton’s care for one month, I was able to discontinue my blood pressure medicine. I tell everyone how chiropractic care has helped me; yes I will be a chiropractic patient for life.
