Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I have participated in chiropractic care for a little over a month now. When I first arrived, I had severe lowback pain. On a scale of 1 - 10, I was a 15 in terms of level of pain. I found Dr. Swain to be professional and informative. His chiropractic skill and equipment have helped me to become virtually pain-free. His staff and workplace provide a pleasant and educational place to get help. I strongly recommend Dr. Swain without hesitation. If you need chiropractic care, come to Dr. Swain's clinic like I did!"

  • "I came to Dr. Swain with left-sided sciatica that would not go away. I had tried pills and physio, had x-rays and a CT scan but nothing helped. Dr. Swain diagnosed a disc herniation and began flexion decompression therapy. Within a week my pain was 50% better. By three weeks I was pain free and getting back to my life!"

  • "I have been a patient of Dr. Swain for about 15 years. I first came for my children, but Dr. Swain noted stiffness in my neck. I can now turn my neck to both sides easily with little stiffness. I consistently recommend Dr. Swain for chiropractic car to anyone experiencing stiffness and pain."
