After a severe auto accident, I spent years with chronic neck and shoulder pain, which eventually radiated down my right arm. The pain kept getting worst and worst, until it became intolerable. I started taking Tylenol and Advil left and right until even that didn't help. In the end I tried everything short of surgery. I discussed trying chiropractic care with my family physician, and he recommended that I see you. I couldn't believe what just a few chiropractic adjustments could do. I now have normal movement in my neck and shoulder and feel better than I have in years. I wish I had known to come to you earlier! Thank you ! Dr. Douglas Brooks.

I don't have a dramatic tale to tell, however, I know that drama is not necessary for me to praise the benefits of chiropractic. I came to Dr. Douglas Brooks after throwing out my back. I responded to chiropractic care very well. I had received it in the past. Nevertheless, not to this level. The injury healed itself quickly due to Dr. Douglas Brooks' concern and adjustments. I have been coming regularly ever since. With the aide of chiropractic, I can continue to work. Without this care, it would have been very difficult for me to perform my everyday functions and responsibilities. Thank you Dr. Douglas Brooks for your help and sharing your knowledge.

I do believe I have benefitted tremendously from chiropractic. Not only does it alleviate stiffness and aches, but it also helps me to feel more balanced and rejuvenated. I have discovered wellness with renewed use of some worn-down muscles and great relief from the pain that has afflicted me for a very long time.This spring I intend to go back to something I doubted I would ever be able to resume again…my favorite sport of golf. For that I consider myself doubly rewarded for undergoing chiropractic treatment. Thanks again Dr. Douglas Brooks . . . I truly appreciate all that you have done for me.

I never thought I'd get anything like carpel tunnel, after all, I didn't play tennis, golf, or work too much on the computer. After my daughter Marina was born, I started experiencing pain in my elbow, arm, and wrist from nursing. There was no way I was going to stop nursing but I had to do something because it was starting to effect everything. As time passed, every movement in my arm became excruitatingly and painful. I started seeing Dr. Douglas Brooks and he put together a program for me that helped right away. First he explained what was going on with my body. He stressed the importance of posture while nursing and that my current posture was putting a strain on my neck, back, shoulders, and going through to my arms, etc. Every appointment he would massage and adjust my neck, back, shoulders, and arms. After about 3 weeks I had completely forgotten I even had carpel tunnel...and I'm still nursing!

It happened this past winter. I went up to the mountains with a bunch of friends. I was approaching the lifts when an out-of-control snowboarder slammed right into me. I don't remember much, but I remember going face down into the snow--hard. Everything blacked out. I think I was out for about a good 30 seconds. I could hear my friends hovering above me, calling my name, waiting for a response. I couldn't speak or move. A few minutes later I was taken to the local emergency hospital. It turned out I was ok. I had passed out and was experiencing some major whiplash. The X-Rays came out fine, but I was in major pain. I couldn't move my neck and my back was stiff and sore. When my mother heard what had happened she was very concerned--of course. She had been seeing you for years and took the initiativew to schedule me in to see you. I must admit, I was a skeptic. After a few weeks of adjustments and rehab I had already forgotten the whole thing had happened. Thanks again! Dr. Douglas Brooks.

It's been 7 months since I got totalled by a monster wave. Since then my life has never been the same. I remember coming out of the water and not being able to walk or move. My girlfriend insisted on taking me to the hospital right away. I immediately had X-Rays taken and the doctors said everything seemed normal, but I knew that was the case. When I went back to see them after a week of being hunched over, limping, and exhausted from lack or sleep they still said there was nothing they could do. A friend suggested I see a chiropractor and that is when I came to see you. One adjustment was all it took to make a world of difference. I was back to my normal self again. Before I never knew what a chiropractor was or even believed in alternative medicine, but now you've made me a believer. Thanks Dr. Douglas Brooks.

I've always played sports, but started experiencing headaches right around the time I started high school. My junior year my headaches started to get really bad. When basketball season started I knew something had to be done. My coach recommended I try seeing a chiropractor. So we called Dr. Douglas Brooks and told him about my problem. He suggested we come in and talk to him about how chiropractic could help. It's amazing how just a few chiropractic adjustments made feel. All of a sudden I was feeling more energized and not getting headaches... and my game has improved! Who would have thought?!

I first met Dr. Douglas Brooksafter participating in a health survey at the gym. At the time, I was experiencing neck, shoulder, back pain, and just about every kind of body pain you could think of. A nerve scan was conducted and it showed interference to all those areas I described. I immediately scheduled an appointment to see Dr. Douglas Brooks and came in for a complete evaluation and x-rays. Dr. Douglas Brooks then explained to me what a "subluxation" was and that it was putting pressure on my nerves therefore affecting their function and communication to different parts of the body. I realized at that moment my wellbeing was more important than money. I have now been under chiropractic care for nine months and I'm feeling better than I have in a long time. I believe Chiropractic care goes hand in hand with exercising at the gym and my flexibility and posture have also improved as a result. Dr. Douglas Brooks explained to me that this is not a cure but that this is a lifestyle change and a process designed to correct a vital part of our precious bodies. This philosophy works and I am very thankful that I took the first step into a life changing process.

Thanks Dr. Douglas Brooks...You were right! I remember when I came to you the last month of my pregnancy with the sciatica. I couldn't walk or move at all! It was the worst thing ever! But, you helped me through it with the adjustments and massage therapy. It didn't go away completely but I always felt so much better after visiting with you, my condition definetly improved. You reassured me that I would get better and that I would be completely back to normal after I delivered the baby. I remember seeing other pregnant women and thinking how lucky they were to be able to walk normal and have an easy pregnacy. After my baby was born, it was like a miracle...just like you said, I was back to normal! Thanks again!

I would like to express my gratitude to Dr. Douglas Brooks and the staff at The Headache, Neck and Back Pain Relief Center for helping me to recover from an extremely painful ailment involving my right shoulder.It has been a recovery that is almost miraculous and if I had not undergone it, I would not have believed that such a turn of events would be possible at all. Due to a major tumor surgery several years ago which removed a large amount of muscle, the area around my right shoulder had become restricted from full range of motion with some muscle groups compensating for those that had been removed by surgery. Before long, the shoulder condition had degenerated, movement was restricted and the pain had become so unbearable that I was taking powerful prescription pain killers. The condition got worse until I could barely comb my hair, put my clothes on or even shift the gears in my car. I now had severe frozen shoulder. Out of desperation, I started to do research on the internet and asked other friends and family about chiropractic. The feedback from others was quite positive. There seemed to be a slight ray of hope other than having another surgery. What is important is that I can truly say that my shoulder is now 98% cured! The pain is almost completely gone and I continue to do the exercises prescribed by Dr. Douglas Brooks. I have my life back and all this has been achieved without any drugs or surgery, just chiropractic adjustments, effective use of ice packs, therapeutic soft tissue massage and muscle strengthening.
