Testimonials

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.

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.

Aligned Medical are really the best in the business

After having severe heel pain for several months, my orthopedic diagnosed me with Plantar Fasciitis in March 2011. At this time I received orthotics, a cortisone injection in my heel and stretching exercises to do at home. The injection wore off after a couple of weeks and the pain returned.

A co-worker told me about the Graston Technique. She told me I needed to find someone who administers this technique because it really helped her with her Plantar Fasciitis. I went online and top research this treatment and look for a provider and came across Aligned Medical Group. I cannot say enough good things about this practice and the people that work there. I had a pretty severe case of Plantar Fasciitis and the doctor told me it may take some time, but assured me that the Graston Treatment could help my pain. I started treatment at the end of May 2011 and by Sept. 1, 2011 I was about 98% better. I was walking with almost no heel pain. I could even walk in my bare feet (which is something I had not done in a long time). I am no longer in therapy, but I still wear my orthotics and do my stretching exercises and icing. You must keep up with this part of the therapy because it really helps you achieve the pain free results you are looking for.
The people at Aligned Medical are really the best in the business. I talked to others when I was in treatment (some with Plantar Fasciitis) and everyone agrees that hands down these people are the best at what they do. Everyone is very knowledgable, patient and can answer any questions you may have.

Call Aligned Medical Group and try the Graston Technique. You won’t be sorry.

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!

Completely pain free!

I had a recurring pain in my lower back that no amount of stretching, exercise or ice seemed to cure. I came to Aligned Medical Group and Dr. Joel pinpointed the issue immediately and planned a course of treatment. Within just a couple of sessions, I saw major relief. By the end of my few weeks of sessions with the doctors, I was completely pain free!

My pain level decreased over 75%

I thought I needed surgery. For two years I suffered from debilitating low back pain. I tried acupuncture, injections and other chiropractors with no success. Then I met Dr. Joel, he talked me out of what I thought was my only option, surgery. He explained that I needed to treat the whole physiological problem, and recommended that I try the spinal decompression program that he guaranteed would help. Within two months of starting treatment my pain level decreased over 75% and since has dropped to a minimal amount. Dr. Joel and his courteous staff, through their programs, have given me back the mobility that I had years ago and have educated me how to take care of my back to avoid such painful injuries.

I can come in and get excellent care.

Having come to Aligned Medical Group for lower back issues, I have remained a patient for over 3 years. I know when I have a muscular/skeletal issue that I can come in and get excellent care.

The bottom line is—I get better. The staff is wonderful and very helpful and they teach you how to help yourself. I have recommended this office to other people and will continue to recommend them as being a great practice.”

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.

Highly recommended!

I started coming to Aligned Medical Group to help with migraine headaches that had worsened since my last child was born. After the first few visits I had a noticeable difference in my pain, especially in my neck and head. And since I have started my treatment, 6 weeks ago, I have had a headache for 3 days. Previously, I had migraines for almost half of the days of the month. The entire staff has been wonderful, and I will continue coming here for any future problems. Highly recommended!

I cannot recommend them enough.

I started to see Dr. Stutzman in 2009 after I began to have chronic lower to mid-back pain. He was very kind and took the time to learn about me and my symptoms. I have been a patient of this practice for over 5 years and I cannot recommend them enough. The doctors are thorough and take the time to learn about you so they can get to the root of the problem. The staff here have made my visits enjoyable and fun – which I always appreciate!

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!

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.

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 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.

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.
