Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

    "

    I am feeling great after visiting Dr. Richardson for low back pain that began after I stepped off a curb and "tweaked" my lower back and hip. Now I see Dr. Dave once a month to make sure I stay aligned and prevent my pain from returning

    "

    "

    Dr. Dave helped me when my back pain traveled down into my leg. I had numbness all the way into my foot and my calf started to shrink. With just a few weeks of treatment, my leg muscle returned to normal and I had no more pain and no lingering numbness!

    "

     have been receiving chiropractic care for several years, and Dr. Richardson is the first chiropractor I have seen who incorporated stretching into my treatment.  It has made all the difference in alleviating my lower back pain that radiated to myhip, and finding relief from tendonitis in my shoulder due to repetitive stress injury.   I recommend his services without hesitation
