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!

The pain is done and has not returned

A muscle on my lower right back has been giving me a lot of pain for over ten years. I was told that it might be caused by a partially herniated disc. After your Spinal Decompression Therapy, the pain is done and has not returned after two months.

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!

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.

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 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!

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.

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!!!

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’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’d recommend Aligned Medical Group to anyone!

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.

-- Johnny Wu

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!

-- Janice Taussig

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.”

-- Carolyn Soroka

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.

-- Dewey Burke

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!”
