Our Patient Success Stories!
I wanted to share my success story so that other people wouldn’t have reservations about seeking chiropractic care. You see, I’m a 63 year old, retired construction worker, with a long history of trauma. I fell off of a roof in the mid 1970’s, causing major trauma to my lower spine, however I sought no chiropractic help at the time.
Compounding the problem was the 20 plus years of running 5-6 miles daily and working in the heavy construction industry. My 1st total left hip replacement was in 1997 followed by my right being replaced in 2013. In 2014 I had to have a 2nd replacement of my left hip.
In July of 2015 I was experiencing constant moderate to severe lower back pain. I have been a patient of Dr. Surkosky’s for approximately 7 weeks now and I am pretty much pain free. Just a little soreness and stiffness in the morning and that too is getting better everyday.
I am dedicated to getting better and do my exercises faithfully. I appreciate all the helpful staff and would recommend Care Chiropractic to anyone.

I began going to Care Chiropractic for neck and upper back problems. At the same time, I had severe pain in my right knee that caused me to walk down the stairs sideways and had been referred for an MRI by an orthopedic specialist that showed significant arthritis. I had not brought my knee condition to Dr. Stu’s attention because, to me, the two conditions seemed unrelated. Over the course of receiving treatment at Care Chiropractic, not only did my neck and upper back problems resolve, but my right knee improved 90% or more. I can walk down stairs normally now and declined any treatment with the orthopedic doctor.

My story begins on a Monday morning in May 2010. I had to call off from work, due to severe low back pain. I’ve had the same problem before, but was not pleased with the conventional medical plan of treatment-pain pills and suggestions of surgery. No way! I wanted a more natural, self-healing plan of treatment. I called Care Chiropractic Center because it was close to home and they could see me that day. I had never been to a chiropractic center, but I had heard that chiropractic was a more natural way to solve back problems and other health issues.
I was a little nervous and in a lot of pain, but the staff was very understanding, and put me at ease. They explained what chiropractic was all about. It sounded good to me and I was sorry I had never gone this route before. X-rays were done, medical background documented, and a plan was in the works. I felt better just knowing what was going on with my back. My doctor was very reassuring and he made me feel that my problem and most of all—the pain– could be remedied with patience, following his plan of treatment, exercise, education and my desire to heal myself.
I am very pleased with the results I have experienced, and truly am a convert to the chiropractic way to good health.
