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!

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 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.

My treatment here has been great.

My treatment here has been great. In less than 2 months I have received more good chiropractic care and exercise supervision than I have received in ten years of treatment from three prior chiropractors. My treatment here thus far has been great. And I think the sessions will have long-lasting, positive effect for me.

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.

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’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!”

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!”

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.”

I wouldn’t have the quality of life I do now without Aligned Medical Group.

When I went for my first visit at Paoli Chiropractic, I had to stand in the waiting room to fill out my paperwork. I wasn’t able to sit down due to pain in my lower back and leg from herniated discs. Id been hurt for about a year and a half and had tried several treatments and therapies but nothing stuck. Dr. Stutzman started me on a treatment plan that included rehab and flexion distraction. I had some relief that very first visit. I stuck with the plan and did my “homework” and within weeks I was returning normal activities and then some. A few months later and I continue to work at it but I know I wouldn’t have the quality of life I do now without Aligned Medical Group. I am so grateful!

-- Beth Bretschneider

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 highly recommend them!!

I was experiencing chronic, low back pain as a result of an old injury, combined with years of general “wear and tear”. The pain was constant and crippling at times. The problem had an effect on my daily activities. I found Aligned Medical Group on the internet and began a therapy program with Dr. Stutzman. After a few months on the program, I have regained much of my strength. I learned how to manage my pain through good health and exercise. Thanks to all of the friendly and helpful support from the Aligned Medical Group. I highly recommend them!!

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 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!
