Thank you

I almost e-mailed you to say thank you thank you thank you! I have so much more neck mobility - I was in the car and I felt like I was a bobblehead doll.

I want to thank you for your excellent and awesome work. My neck and shoulders haven't felt this loose in almost four years. Your methods are fantastic, your intuition is on point, and both your caring and concern for me as your patient is very, very much appreciated and noticed. I'm so glad that I was referred to you and had the chance to be your client. If I wasn't moving away, I'd still be in your curative hands. I really appreciate your concern for my well being, and caring for my injury, not just from the chiropractic side but also the cognitive side in relation to the issues I sustained from my injury. I will certainly miss being able to receive chiropractic treatment from you as well as miss your good nature as a person.

He keeps me in great shape as I age

More than 15 years ago I developed spinal stenosis quite suddenly and quite severely. I could hardly walk more than a few blocks and standing still was even worse. I tried spinal injections and acupuncture and they gave me relief for awhile -- actually quite awhile -- but they eventually provided little benefit. During the entire time though, I've gone to Dr. Ron Lavine on a regular basis. Using a mixture of chiropractic and other healing techniques Dr. Lavine keeps me pain free and on-the-go at 76.

Getting well, Staying well

When I first met Dr. Lavine last November, I had just suffered two severe muscle spasms in my back. Years of not taking care of myself physically had finally caught up, and I was not only in a lot of pain but also in fear for my future well-being and mobility. A combination of adjustments and neurofascial therapy eased my condition, and at the beginning of our sixth session, my first instinct was to say to myself, "I'm cured." I'm happy to say that Dr. Lavine made me think twice about my commitment to myself--and I scheduled another round of appointments for continuing "renewal" treatments. Now, regularly scheduled neurofascial therapy with Dr. Lavine releases the muscle tension in my back and neck, letting me continue to heal without further injury.
