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 highly recommend them to all.

I only have wonderful things to say about Dr. Stutzman. I came to them in terrible pain on a Saturday after an injury while on a cruise. The staff greeted me with open arms. The atmosphere and treatment was extremely positive enabling me to live without pain. I highly recommend them to all. Thank you.

I am pain-free.

I came to Dr. Joel with strain and pain in my wrists. I was fearful I had a serious case of carpal tunnel and might need surgery. Dr. Joel and his staff worked with me for several weeks and completely reversed the problem. Thanks to Dr. Joel, I am pain-free and have the tools to stay that way.

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.

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.

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!

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!”

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.

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 think I have my shoulder back.

As a physician, I have always had a deep skepticism about chiropractors. Frankly, I thought they were a bunch of quacks taking advantage of those who were gullible, not entirely of sound mind or vegetarian. Then I injured my shoulder and for months, it would not get better. With the specter of a chronic injury limiting my athletic activities, I decided to try the Aligned Medical Group. They had helped my daughter with her shoulder injury and I figured at least they couldn't hurt me, too much. After six weeks of stretching, manual therapy and strength building exercises, I think I have my shoulder back. Instead of waking up each morning wondering how much my shoulder was going to hurt today, I just plunge into my routine without thinking about it. Research of trigger points revealed some hard medical evidence behind manual therapy and how it might help beyond traditional physical therapy. This has further enhanced my confidence that this chiropractic stuff is a real help for muscle related injuries. I still need to re-build the muscles of my rotator cuff before I can resume bench pressing and other upper body exercises, but I’m clearly making progress beyond what I had experienced prior to coming to AMG. Next time I hurt myself, I’m not waiting months to get help.

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

After my treatment regiment, I feel great.

Everyone in the office was great. Very attentive, polite, and professional… I came to the office with lower back pain, and shooting pain down the back of my left leg, due to 2 crushed discs in my back. After my treatment regiment, I feel great, something I haven’t felt for a long time!

-- Darrell Dortch

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.
