Mark Swain
Your North Bay Chiropractor

  • "Eight years ago I had chiropractic care that wasn't beneficial to my injuries. I've been seeing Dr. Swain for a few months now and the relief is beyond words. I came to Dr. Swain with sciatic, shoulder blade and low back pain caused by three herniated discs from a work injury. Being told that nothing can be done about my pain destroyed me, so I suffered in pain for over eight years. Then I met Dr. Swain and after my first visit when he told me he can help me, I cried all the way home, because I had hope that he could really help me. My life has done a 180! The things that I once loved to do and had stopped, like 4-wheeling, hiking and camping...I am able to do again with little or no pain. I get to enjoy my job again, instead of spending days trying to recuperate from working two shifts in a row. I love being a nurse and helping out. To anyone suffering back pain from him to anyone I know he is the best in my book. Thank you Dr. Swain, for giving me my life back."
  • "I am writing this recommendation to share the phenomenal experience that I have had with Dr. Mark Swain from back4life chiropractic. I was hesitant to see a chiropractor seeing as I had never been to one before and he made me feel so at ease. He took the time to explain what he was going to do before doing it so that I was comfortable. He explained to me the areas that needed attention and what the plan was going forward.
    I appreciated his patience and thoroughness with me. It is not surprising that he has such a well established practice with the way he runs his clinic. He is knowledgeable, understanding and genuinely cares about peoples wellness. Stephanie at the front desk is so sweet and accommodating, they make a great team!"
    T. Butineau
  • "I have participated in chiropractic for a little over a month. When I first arrived I had severe lower back pain, on a scale of one to ten i was a fifteen in terms of level of pain, I found Dr. Swain to be professional and informative. His chiropractic skill and experience have helped me to become virtually pain free. His staff and workplace provided a pleasant and informative place to get help. I strongly recommend Dr. Swain without hesitation. If you need chiropractic care come to Dr. Swain's clinic, I'm glad I did."
    G. Meadows
  • "I have been under chiropractic care for 2 months with low back and neck pain. My back and neck pain are now mostly gone. If you have pain and want to get it under control and prevent it from returning , consider corrective chiropractic care with Dr. Swain."
    B. Luckett
  • "Good spinal health is very important. For me, Dr. Swain has been an excellent choice for corrective chiropractic care. Dr. Swain, Stacy and Stephanie work as a well organized team and everything is efficiently managed for the individual patient. Dr. Swain's assessment and treatment plan for my spinal issues has produced wonderful results. In the beginning I was in constant lower back and leg pain. After 3 months of care I am almost completely free of any pain. Also I have attended one of Dr. Swains spinal health classes and have purchased 3 supportive devices which have been most helpful. I am very excited about being pain free and truly most grateful to Dr. Swain and Staff for the outstanding chiropractic care I have received."
    A. Sullivan
  • "I have been in Dr. Swain's care for more than 10 years. In 1990, I was in an unfortunate accident which had damaged the left side of my body. Having been under Dr. Swain's care since then, there has been a great improvement in my body. When I first began care, my migraines were very severe and I was unable to do any sort of exercises. I was very discouraged. With Dr. Swain's patience and care, I am able to do just about any sport. Migraines are no longer an issue and I am no longer on prescription medication. Deep in my heart, I feel that if it was not for Dr. Swain I would be in a wheel chair today."
  • "When I first came into Dr. Swain office, I was experiencing headaches and neck pain, as well as a lot of lower back pain. Having been under chiropractic care for a few years my headaches have been eliminated and I don't have lower back problems as often. Regular adjustments have helped considerably. I truly believe that my overall health, which is good, is maintained with regular chiropractic care."
  • "I have been under chiropractic care with Dr. Swain for more than 15 years and along with regular, moderate exercise plan, I have great mobility and am quite healthy. Regular bone density test show that I am better than I was 20 years ago. Dr. Swain has taught me that I can continue with my gardening by using sensible practices. I feel younger than many of my acquaintances and I believe that is because of my regular chiropractic care."
    C. Dibartolomeo
  • "I came to Dr. Swain in May 2010. I was experiencing pain in my groin area, which I thought might be related to the low back problems I had been having for 5 years. The concern with the groin was diagnosed and managed, but at the same time my low back issues have also been dealt with through on-going treatment and exercise, along with making some lifestyle changes (orthotics, etc.). At this point, as long as I stay with the program of care Dr. Swain has prescribed for me, and I don't do foolish things with my body, I feel pretty good most of the time."

  • "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."
