SHINGLES IN 2003
AFTER I HAD SHINGLES IN 2003, MY BACK HURT ON AND OFF AND THEN AFTER MY HEART SURGERY IN 2013 IT BECAME MUCH WORSE. HAVING DAILY PAIN FOR THAT LONG WAS HARD TO LIVE WITH. I HAD TO TAKE PAIN MEDICATION THAT ONLY TOOK THE EDGE OFF AND MADE ME SICK, INCLUDING VOMITING. I LOST 8 LBS. FROM THANKSGIVING TO CHRISTMAS. SINCE BEGINNING REGULAR ADJUSTMENTS IN DECEMBER 2017 I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER. I DON’T HAVE TO TAKE THE MEDICATION FOR THE BACK PAIN ANYMORE. I CAN ENJOY EATING AGAIN. I EVEN GAINED 6 LBS. BACK. EVERYONE IN THE OFFICE SAYS I’M HAPPY AND SEES ME SMILE ALL THE TIME. I AM SO HAPPY I FOUND GEORGE’S CHIROPRACTIC AS THEY WERE THE ONLY ONES WHO HAVE HELPED ME!
DURING DECEMBER, 2017, I WAS “MENTALLY TAXED” WITH ADDED ACTIVES RELATED TO THE ADVENT SEASON.I GRADUALLY BECAME AWARE THAT MY ABILITY TO REMEMBER/VISUALIZE GROCERY LIST, RECIPE DIRECTIONS, TASKS, AND APPOINTMENTS HAD DRAMATICALLY IMPROVED.I ALSO RECOGNIZED THAT MY ABILITY TO STAY FOCUSED HAD IMPROVED; FOR EXAMPLE, I WAS HARDLY EVER WALKING INTO A ROOM AND ASKING MYSELF WHY I HAD GONE IN THERE.MY PAST BEHAVIOR FOUND ME ASKING THAT QUESTION QUITE OFTEN.I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT THE IMPROVEMENT OF MY MEMORY AND ABILITY TO FOCUS ON TASKS IS DUE TO MY TONAL ADJUSTMENTS.I AM GRATIFIED THAT MY ON-GOING TONAL ADJUSTMENTS CONTINUE TO BENEFIT NOT ONLY MY BODY, BUT ALSO MY MIND.
PRIOR TO BEGINNING CARE AT GEORGE’S, I WAS EXPERIENCING SIGNIFICANT SCIATIC NERVE PAIN. THIS WAS DIAGNOSED BY MEDICAL DOCTOR. PRIOR TO THIS DIAGNOSIS, I SUFFERED FROM ACUTE ACHILLE TENDONITIS WHICH WAS TREATED BY A PODIATRIST. THE PODIATRIST PRESCRIBED ORTHOTICS, WHICH CORRECTED THIS PROBLEM. I DO BELIEVE THE SCIATIC PAIN WAS BROUGHT FORTH DUE TO THE ORTHOTIC. MY FAMILY PHYSICIAN SUGGESTED I BEGIN PHYSICAL THERAPY FOR MY SCIATIC PAIN. I ASKED HER HOW SHE FELT ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC. I KNOW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THE GREAT SUCCESSES OTHERS HAVE EXPERIENCED UNDERGOING CHIROPRACTIC CARE. I HAVE A NIECE AND HER HUSBAND WHO ARE CHIROPRACTORS IN NORTHERN PA. MY DOCTOR SAID I COULD TRY IT OUT AS SHE HAD HEARD GOOD THINGS AS WELL. SO, I MADE THE CALL TO GEORGE’S THE NEXT DAY. SINCE UNDERGOING AN INTENSE, THREE APPOINTMENTS A WEEK ROUTINE AT GEORGE’S, I HAVE SEEN SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENTS NOT ONLY WITH MY SCIATIC PAIN BUT IN OTHER AREAS AS WELL. FIRST, I NO LONGER WEAR ORTHOTICS AND I HAVE NO SIGN OF ACHILLES TENDONITIS. I NO LONGER SUFFER FROM EXTREME SINUS HEADACHES, MY NECK NO LONGER CRUNCHES AND CRACKS, MY REACTION TO SEASONAL ALLERGENS HAS LESSENED, MY EARS NO LONGER POP AND CRACK WITH FLUID AND MY STAMINA HAS IMPROVED. I WOULD ENCOURAGE OTHERS TO EXPLORE CHIROPRACTIC AND OTHER HOLISTIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR ULTIMATE HEALTH RATHER THAN SUBMITTING YOUR BODY TO OUTSIDE FORCES SUCH AS PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND DEVICES THAT MAY CORRECT HEALTH ISSUES BUT BRING ABOUT AND/OR WORSEN ANOTHER (ORTHOTICS).
I OFTEN FELT LIKE I HAD NO ENERGY, OR AS IF MY BODY MUSCLES WERE GIVING OUT. I FEEL A LOT BETTER AS FAR AS BEING FLEXIBLE, AND WORKING WITHOUT FEELING EXHAUSTED. IT’S AMAZING TO ME BECAUSE IT ONLY HAS BEEN A MONTH.
IF YOU NEED A CHIROPRACTOR, I WOULD TRULY RECOMMEND GEORGE’S CHIROPRACTIC. THE RESULTS ARE AMAZING.
I WAS DEALING WITH BACK AND SHOULDER PAIN AND HAD LESS ENERGY THAN I WANTED. ALSO SOMETIMES FELT SOME DIZZINESS. NOW I HAVE LOTS MORE ENERGY. I FEEL LIKE MY BRAIN WORKS BETTER WITH WHOLE BODY. NO MORE BACK PAIN. ALSO MY SHOULDERS FEEL LESS TIGHT. KEEP ON A REGULAR SCHEDULE EVEN IF IT’S HARD AT TIMES, BUT IT’S WORTH IT. REMEMBER, ALWAYS FIND TIME FOR YOUR OWN BODY, “WHY” REALLY MATTERS.
I WAS HAVING HEADACHES. I FEEL TIGHTNESS AND SORENESS IN MY BACK. I’VE BEEN WITH GEORGE’S CHIROPRACTIC FOR 2 ½ MONTHS NOW. THE ADJUSTMENTS FEEL SO GOOD. I HAVE SEEN SOME RESULTS, BUT NOT LIKE I WISH TOO. MY HEADACHES ARE LESS. I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO MY NEXT ADJUSTMENT. I KEEP HOPING FOR MORE RESULTS AND I KNOW IT TAKES TIME.
THANKS, FOR YOUR HELP.
FOR AS LONG AS I CAN REMEMBER I SUFFERED WITH CHRONIC CONSTIPATION. I NEVER REALIZED I COULD FIND RELIEF THROUGH CHIROPRACTIC CARE. AFTER MY FIRST ADJUSTMENT THINGS BEGAN TO CHANGE. DR. RISSER EXPLAINED HOW THE SUBLUXATION (A SLIGHT MISALIGNMENT OF THE VERTEBRAE) CAN CAUSE ALL KINDS OF HEALTH PROBLEMS, INCLUDING CONSTIPATION. I WISH I WOULD HAVE KNOWN YEARS AGO THAT CHIROPRACTIC CARE COULD HELP ME, BUT SINCE I CAN’T TURN BACK THE CLOCK, I WILL CONTINUE TO GET ADJUSTMENTS. I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE TO SEEK CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR THIS ISSUE OR ANY OTHER HEALTH PROBLEM.
I’VE ALWAYS HAD A STIFF NECK. I ALSO GET LOTS OF CRAMPING WHEN I GET MY MONTHLY CYCLE. I FEEL A BIG DIFFERENCE IN MY BODY, MY NECK FEELS SO MUCH BETTER. MY NECK IS NOT AS TIGHT. THE CRAMPS FROM THE MONTHLY CYCLE HAS DECREASED. THERE HAS BEEN IMPROVEMENT IN MY POSTURE. I WOULD ENCOURAGE LOTS OF PEOPLE TO COME TO GEORGE’S CHIROPRACTIC AND TELL THEM HOW GEORGE’S CHIROPRACTIC HAS HELPED ME.
I WAS HAVING PROBLEMS IN MY LOWER RIGHT BACK, EVERY TIME I GOT OFF OF WORK I COULD FEEL THE PAIN. I FEEL A BIG DIFFERENCE! NOT HAVING PAIN IN MY BACK AND I ALSO FEEL THE DIFFERENCE WITH MY MONTHLY CYCLE. I WOULD RECOMMEND ANYONE TO COME HERE. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BACK PAIN, HEADACHES, ETC. YOU SHOULD COME HERE.

I WAS HAVING A LOT OF HEALTH ISSUES, BACK PAIN, SCIATICA, ACID REFLUX, TINNITUS (RINGING OF THE EAR) GALLBLADDER PAIN, VERTIGO, NECK SPASMS ETC. I SAW MANY MEDICAL DOCTORS AND STILL NO RELIEF, PLUS THE MEDICINES THEY GAVE ME ACTUALLY MADE SOME OF MY SYMPTOMS WORSE. MY QUALITY OF LIFE WAS REALLY DETERIORATING. I DECIDED I NEEDED TO TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I SAW THEIR BOOTH AT THE SOLANCO FAIR. I TOOK A FEW PAMPHLETS TO READ. I WAS AMAZED AND AT THE SAME TIME A LITTLE SKEPTICAL, OF WHAT CHIROPRACTIC CARE COULD DO FOR ME BUT I FIGURED WHAT DO I HAVE TO LOSE, I CALLED AND SET UP MY INITIAL CONSULTATION. I HAVE BEEN A PRACTICE MEMBER FOR AT LEAST 4 YEARS NOW AND I HAVE TO SAY, IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I EVER MADE. I’M BACK DOING THE THINGS I ENJOY LIKE GOING FOR WALKS, GARDENING, AND YES EVEN DOING EVERYDAY HOUSEHOLD CHORES HAS RETURNED. MY OVERALL HEALTH HAS IMPROVED AS WELL, I’M SLEEPING BETTER, AND MY ACID REFLUX HAS DECREASED GREATLY, THE TINNITUS HAS GREATLY BEEN REDUCED.
I WAS SUFFERING FROM A CONSTANT ACHE IN MY LOWER LEFT BACK. THE ACHE IS GONE! IN ADDITION, I HAVE A GREATLY IMPROVED RANGE OF MOTION IN MY NECK; I HAVE AN OVER ALL SENSE OF WELL BEING! I HAVE IMPROVED MY BALANCE AND FLEXIBILITY. PATIENCE AND TIME FOR HEALING IS IMPORTANT! IT’S AMAZING TO ME HOW MY BODY CONTINUES TO RESPOND TO MY WEEKLY TONAL ADJUSTMENTS!
HIP, BACK, NECK AND THIGH PAIN. MY THIGH PAIN IS MOSTLY GONE. MY NECK, HIP, AND BACK ISSUES ARE IMPROVING. I HAVE GREATER RANGE OF MOTION AND FEEL BETTER. TRY CHIROPRACTIC. IT IS WORTH IT! IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
I WAS HAVING PAIN FROM MY SCIATIC NERVE. I WOULD WAKE UP AND IT WOULD TAKE TIME UNTIL I COULD GET MY BODY MOVING. MY POSTURE HAS IMPROVED. I HAVE MORE ENERGY. THE SCIATIC NERVE PAIN IS GONE. I WAKE UP EVERY MORNING WITHOUT SEVERE PAIN, IT IS EXTREMELY WONDERFUL.
I WAS HAVING HEADACHES AND BACKACHE. NO MORE HEADACHES LIKE I USED TO HAVE. I HAVE MORE ENERGY GEORGE’S CHIROPRACTIC HAS A GREAT STAFF TO WORK WITH!

On my first visit to GCHC in 2005, I was 19 years old. At that time, I could not lift more than 20 lbs. because of intense pain in my lower back. I could not run because of pain in my hips, related to my back pain. I often had headaches, which made me unhappy:(. I had very little love to my surroundings! I started visiting GCHC, where I got adjusted 3 times a week for 4 months, then, I started going 2 times a week. I am going on a weekly basis at the moment. By the grace of God and GCHC, I am now a roofer, and can lift everything I feel comfortable with. I go running an average of 20 miles a week. I am very active in sports and snowboarding. I am also active in the fire department. I get a headache no more than maybe every other year:). I can now breathe clear and deeper! I take no prescriptions drugs! I am very passionate for my surroundings and life! Try it for yourself!
Since my early twenties, my goal in life included healthy choices to avoid heart attacks, which both my parents had when they were 40. Running and martial arts complemented nutritious eating and avoiding alcohol to optimize achieving my goals. Chiropractic care was a great alternative to medications for about 10 years.
Three decades later, what I thought was aging problems curbed my activities and left me worn out. Due to family circumstances, I turned to traditional medicine to help me with allergies, asthma, headaches, chronic fatigue, depression, sciatica, and lack of mental focus. I had back surgery and a cabinet filled with prescription drugs.
Within a few weeks of starting chiropractic care with Drs. George & Badman, my headaches stopped and my energy was returning. For the first time in ages, I was able to turn my head to look over my shoulder while driving. My flexibility was returning, which helped me in my dance classes. At home, I am able to accomplish more on my very long “To-do list.”
The biggest benefit to date has been for my urinary stress incontinence. Like many other women my age, I suffered with this, and was told it was due to hormonal changes and multiple pregnancies. My urologist had me try several medications, none worked, and each one had side effects which made me feel crazy.
In 2007 I had the first surgery to “correct” the problem. The operation actually caused an obstruction and I needed subsequent surgeries. Six additional procedures each followed by 4-6 weeks of recovery. Each time I was unable to exercise, and each attempt to stop the embarrassing urine leaking failed. My urologist continues to offer me other opportunities to yield to his useless scalpels and syringes! “No way” I told him, knowing I should have refused the first surgery.
Within two months of beginning chiropractic care, my incontinence has finally resolved! I am excited about the relief of this issue, and wish I had tried the natural option of chiropractic long ago. Another issue that has resolved itself is for the first time in my life, I am not constipated and I am moving my bowels on a regular basis. Another wonderful result I am experiencing is I no longer have to take naps during the day. My energy level has soared! Since I can’t go back in time, I am resolved to recommend George’s Chiropractic Health Center to anyone with similar issues. I will continue to share this success with my women friends who are being told surgery and drugs are their only option. THANK YOU Skip & Luke!
My 21 year old son Andrew has had a history of chronic sinus and upper respiratory infections. Each winter, we had a routine of back to back colds, cough, stuffy/runny nose, etc. Visits to the family doctor and prescription/over the counter medications didn’t help. This year is clearly different. He has been relatively symptom-free, for the first time since he was a child. Seeing the chiropractors for regular adjustments is what brought about this change. His immune system is stronger, which is why he has been able to break his pattern of poor health. Thank you to the great doctors at George’s Chiropractic Health Center!

Before coming here, I did not have a positive chiropractic experience. My muscles, neck cramped up and I was getting no relief from massages. Someone explained there were differences in chiropractic treatments. I was skeptical, but needed to try something new. This was not a quick fix, but during the past 5 months I feel myself getting better. There are no more neck, & shoulder cramps.
I am quite pleased with the results and a new advocate for going to the “right” chiropractor. I would recommend George’s Chiropractic Health Center. Love the way the group educates clients (patients).
I had been experiencing a dull, persistent ache in my lower back for about two years. When I would be engaged in strenuous activities like pulling weeds, the ache became more pronounced. When I would walk for forty-five minutes to an hour, the ache became more pronounced. I attributed my physical deterioration to the natural “aging process” and did not seek any physical diagnosis.
Then in May, of 2013, I attended the Women’s Expo at Spooky Nook Sports, where I visited George’s Chiropractic Health Center’s booth. Dr. George assured me that my back ache could heal over a period of time by tonal adjustments that would promote my body to heal itself. I was encouraged by Dr. George’s advice and decided to visit his health center for a few trial adjustments to find out if I would notice any relief to my lower back pain. After about 10-12 visits, I began to experience less pain/soreness in my lower back and I even had an improved range of motion in my ability to turn my head left and right.
It is now 1 year later and I am continuing the healing process. My posture is more erect, I have improved my balance and agility. I have increased my strength and stamina to being able to walk 3 miles in an hour without an aching back! I recommend George’s Chiropractic Health Center to anyone who wants an improved quality of life.
I have been a client at George’s Chiropractic since August 1999. I was in an accident on September 28, 1999 and Dr. George got me up out of my wheel chair. The doctor who operated on my legs said when he came to visit me in rehab, said ” we never expected to see you up here the way you were brought in” my legs were broken in several places and a lot of metal was put in a bar on my left thigh, a hook in my left knee, a rod in my left calf, and both ankles have bars and 4 screws, in each one and thanks to him, and Dr. George I could walk unaided the following July, 10 months later however, in 2010, we stopped going to Dr. George, due to finances. On July 29, 2014 I fell at a swimming picnic with our grandchildren on cement and hit my head receiving (I think) a concussion at least I got a black eye from a bump on the back of my head did not pass out, and passed exam in the ER that I was okay well, things got worse as time progressed and it became harder and harder to walk and bend my knees, in the walking process I was walking stiff legged, especially my right knee it would not bend to get in our van comfortably so I called Dr. George for an appointment and am I glad I did! The first pressure points made me release a lot of pressure, and also after the first adjustment my knee bent getting in the van! I have been in their care now for a little over a month and am feeling much better and know much better will turn into good health again. I recommend Dr. George and Dr. Badman to anyone for the best and healthiest time of their lives. I am 77, and have 3 challenged teenage grandchildren in guardianship with my husband for 2 years now, so I’m looking forward to a healthy future with them. One grandchild is already coming to Dr. George, and will try to get the other two also to come. Please do consider looking into seeing Dr. George and Dr. Badman you won’t be disappointed!
