Dear Dr. Barone,
I first heard about your office from my younger sister. She had been blaming me for year for hurting her tailbone, from when I kneed her in the butt when we were kids. When she told me about the procedure, and how much better she felt – I thought she was nuts, but on the other hand I knew if she was telling me to go, it would be worth it.
My 2 numb spots in the middle of my back were hurting again and I couldn’t get rid of my knots in my neck and shoulders. To top everything off, now my lower back hurt, again. My sister insisted I go. The next day I just couldn’t take it anymore, so I didn’t wait, I made the appointment. IT WAS WORTH IT! I instantly felt relief.
I am 34 and life is so different now. I’d had headaches for 7 months, and quite often I would be walking down the hall at work not feeling right. Now? Nothing like that at all!
My lower back had hurt off and on for about 4 years, I had two numb spots in the middle of my back for 5 years and a sensitive stomach for as long as I can remember. All of that is gone now. Since I fractured my ankle a year ago, I thought it didn’t heal right because I couldn’t run like I used to. It would give out or ache, I’ve noticed that since you “fixed” me, I haven’t had any problems with it anymore.
The little things in life mean so much. If people only knew how your spine could affect your whole body – you would need an office as big as the Sears Tower. I have learned so much from coming to you. I tell everyone about Upper Cervical and how it has changed my life. Thank your for enhancing my life. It’s wonderful to go to work and not have a headache!

Dear Dr. Barone,
I am 35 years old and have been suffering from back pain since May of 2003. Previous to May I have had backaches that would improve after rest. One day, while getting into the shower, I sneezed and my back went into spasm I was barely able to walk. My doctor prescribed muscle relaxant, pain kill relievers and physical therapy. After 3-months of physical therapy I felt close to 100%. I though the physical therapy cured me of my back problems.
About a week later while reaching for a waste container my back went out again. Once again the doctor prescribed muscle relaxants and pain kill relievers. He also set up an MRI, which showed that I had a herniated disc. My doctor suggested that I try NUCCA. By that time my back felt better so I put off going to the chiropractor. About 2-weeks later my back went out again and the first call I made was to your office to set up an appointment. I felt that this was a better alternative to surgery.
After my initial consultation and X-Rays, I was looking forward to my first adjustment, which was scheduled for the next day. The adjustment itself was painless and when I stood afterwards my body felt light and there was a little relief from my back pain. Over the next two months I have had three additional adjustments and my back pain had gotten progressively better. While I am not at 100% at this time I have vastly improved from the first day I came to your office. I am confident that with continued visits and adjustments when necessary that I will be back to 100% soon.
Sincerely, – Karl C.
Dear Dr. Barone,
Before I came into your office I was suffering from a nagging backache that just wouldn’t go away. Every morning for about six months I awoke with lower muscle pain. The pain was never to the point of preventing me from getting up, but enough to make me not want to do much around the house. I also experienced atingling in my legs every so often that would prevent me from sleeping well. I would toss and turn all night and wake tired…I had never seen a chiropractor in the past and was skeptical, but I could no longer stand the pain and sleepless nights. I received a flier about your practice and decided to come in and see what it was all about. Your staff was very professional and extremely friendly. It felt like a good place to be. After the initial exam and your explanation of the problem, I decided to go ahead with adjustments you suggested. The very next morning after the adjustment, I had NO BACK PAIN! NONE!! I was amazed. I am so happy I decided to come see you! I have been sleeping better, have more energy, and have had no lower backaches… I feel like a new person.
Sincerely, – Tim A.
Dear Dr. Barone,
I am 60 years old and have been suffering with constant back, neck and hip pain. In 1991 I suffered a head injury in an auto accident which changed my life. As a dancer all my life I had a lot of strength and energy. After my injury I couldn’t walk up the stairs without strain. I did improve over the years and continue to dance but not at the ability I one did. I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in 1999 and was told that it is expected to have the chronic fatigue and fybromyalgia along with it. It would be for life. Every time I tried to expand my exercise and dance I would suffer.
I ran into Dr. Barone at Fruitful Yield a few years ago and decided to see him for an appointment.
My hips were out and in pain. I couldn’t look up without holding my head because of the pain in my neck.
I was amazed at the thoroughness of the exam. The alignment of my neck was so simple but the result was amazing! My hips were straight, I could look up at the ceiling with no problems. I could dance without compensating for some difficulty and discomfort.
I have more energy. I do not feel the fatigue any more. My back, from the neck to my hips have almost no pain or discomfort. In addition my sinus discomfort is improving and I just realized that my digestive system is healing. I was prescribed numerous supplements for indigestion, acid, as well as fatigue and pain and I am no longer needing them.

I am 67 years old. For the last 28 years I have been experiencing some problems with back pain. I suffered a fall on the ice and ever since then I have off and on periods of pain, which caused some very curtailed activity, not being able to pick up my grandbabies or take care of my plants, or even do household chores. I went to several chiropractors. Some helped a little but I always ended up in the pain spasms arena.
I heard about Barone Spinal Care about a year ago on the radio 1160 WYLL. I went for my first visit and started treatment. I was impressed at how thorough the exams were and everyone was very friendly and helpful.
I honestly didn’t notice any big change at first but as the days went by I could feel my spine shifting. Some days I had a lot of pain and some days were better. I seem to be improving and look forward to better days ahead.

Dear Dr. Barone:
I had been experiencing back pain located between the shoulder blades, lower back as well as neck pain leading into the shoulders for several years, and upon turning 48 years old, decided to do something about it. I had tried the old snap, crackle and pop of an ordinary chiropractor, but found it somewhat uncomfortable during the correction procedure and the pain never really subsided.
The back and neck pains began to effect everyday life, especially toward the end of the day. Then one Saturday morning I heard you and Jeff during your morning radio program and decided to check out your website to educate myself about the NUCCA program and your treatments. I first visited your office in mid February and the chronic pain that I was experiencing has diminished in little over six weeks, and I cannot believe how quick and painless the procedure really is. I have also noticed that during my aerobic activity, my breathing appears to be easier and deeper than it had been prior to treatment.
Your staff is very professional, accommodating, friendly and always makes me feel welcome. I want to thank the doctors and staff at Barone Spinal Care for their commitment to changing lives and I look forward to achieving total wellness at Barone Spinal Care.

Dear Dr. Barone,
I have been suffering with back pain and headaches for the last 20 years. I started as a patient at Barone Spinal Care approximately 8 weeks ago. Since starting I have seen improvements in my circulation and flexibility. This has contributed to reduced headaches, no low back pain, and improving my overall health. I am in my early 40’s and want my health to be as good as I can make it. My sense is that this is a good investment to help make this happen!
Thank you, – John D.

Dear Dr. Barone,
I’m 52 and started coming to Barone Spinal Care in July 2011 for severe neck pain. I also have a history of back pain and sciatica. It started when I was in my early 20’s. I moved a heavy coffee table and was laid up for 3 days. It was always a weak spot after that and I had my first back surgery (laminectomy @ L4/5) at the age of 28. Was better for a few years but the lumbar area gradually degenerated. I had a lumbar fusion and 2 levels (L4/5 & L5-S/1) at age 39. Had relief for 6 months, then the disc above the fusion ruptured because the fusion put too much stress on that level and I’ve had severe lumbar and sciatic pain down the leg and into the foot ever since. Had to quit hairdressing/working all together. Cannot walk much of any distance as it aggravates the sciatic nerve. Stairs are difficult. One surgeon told me to have another fusion; another said no more surgery for you …. Live with it. I’ve tried physical therapy, tens unit, acupuncture, traditional chiropractic, prolo therapy, trigger point injections and every type of epidural steroid injection. 3 discs in the neck are pretty flattened out and was told to have those 3 levels fused in 2005 but after what happened with the lumbar fusion, I’m too afraid. In July 2011 my neck got real bad, weakness in arms and hands/grip, couldn’t lift my arm to get a cup of coffee out of the microwave and this concerned me because these are also signs of losing neural function in which case you have no choice but to have surgery. So in an effort to avoid surgery I called Barone Spinal Care. My niece had been bugging me to go there for years because they got rid of her severe neck pain. I wouldn’t go because I was just sick of it all, but his time I thought I’ll give it a try if it helps me avoid surgery. To be honest, my plan was to make an appt. with a neurosurgeon (good ones are booked 3 months in advance) and start NUCCA treatments at Dr. Barone’s office right away. I figured if NUCCA adjustments weren’t helping after 3 month I wouldn’t’ have to wait to get in with the neurosurgeon. Dr. Barone’s office got me in in 2 days and I hadn’t gotten around to booking the neurosurgeon appt. yet. I planned to do it the following week. In the meantime I had my first 2 adjustments and my neck felt so much better that I never booked the neurosurgeon ppt. I really think I dodged a bullet there. After the second adjustment everything kind of loosened up and the muscle spasms gradually eased up. The adjustment is PAINLESS. You feel a little pressure from the doctors hand on your neck but I’ve had massages that used more pressure than this!!! This is not painful, back surgery is painful. There is no “thrust” or “cracking” like a traditional chiropractor adjustment. It seems like they just gently nudge things into their proper place but I’m sure there’s more to it than that. These doctors are highly trained in this technique. I googled NUCCA and read about it. When I stood up after my first adjustment my body felt heavy and my legs were tingling from the knees down. (Increased circulation) Before the adjustments I couldn’t’ find a comfortable position for my neck on the pillow so I tried to sleep sitting up in a recliner No problems with a pillow now and I can lie on my side again. Sleep is a deeper sleep. I feel like I’m standing up straighter and my legs feel stronger. I can stand for longer periods of time. I’m more relaxed and smiling more. I still have back pain but it’s better than it was and I’m only 9weeks in to this. I’ve read it takes a year to get the maximum benefit. I’m not taking Vicoden as much either. The best part for me is less muscle spasms and tightness as this contributed to the pain a lot and now I can stretch more. Trying to stretch with a muscle spasm is like trying to drive a car with the emergency brake on. I would not recommend surgery without trying this first.

Dear Dr. Barone,
Treatment at Barone Spinal Care has been not only a painless experience, but visits there are always pleasant and enjoyable. The staff is warm and friendly and the clinic has a soothing atmosphere. I was having a lot of back, shoulder and neck pain from the physical nature of my job when I was referred to Barone Spinal Care and used a certificate for a free thermographic scan. The scan showed areas of great concern and indicated an immediate need for treatment. I was also told what needed to be done to prevent further deterioration and promote optimal spinal, bone, muscle and nerve center health. I knew there was issue with my spine, because my back had gone out several years ago. Healing was slow and medical treatments seemed ineffective. I finally got relief from a form of muscle therapy, but was told that my posture still need correction and to address core spine and back problems. I didn’t ever want to experience that kind of discomfort again, but did not really do anything, because I was not really comfortable with treatments I had been using. I put off seeking a repair and restore program until the pain I was experiencing from required job tasks made me conscious of the need to get help before things got worse. I was immediately struck by the passion for healing that was clearly visible in Dr. Barone and Dr. Jung and their conviction in the NUCCA Chiropractic method. The exams and x-rays they use to make a diagnosis are thorough and done with great attention to detail and precision. The best part is that treatments don’t involve any cracking noise or contortions. The method they use was clearly explained. It was amazing how gentle the process is! I am now standing straight, and following their treatment plan to total spinal and physical wellness and maintenance. It feels so good to know that I am finally taking care of, not only my spine, but my total physical health through this comprehensive kind of treatment. I know that I am in good, caring hands at the Barone Spinal Care Clinic!

I am a sixty-eight year old who has been suffering from arthritis and fibromyalgia since the birth of my third child. Then about a year ago I missed a curb and feel hard on my left knee and about two months ago tripped and fell on my right knee. At times stairs were almost impossible to go up or down, and with less exercise my muscles were getting weaker.
My daughter, her family and Mother-in-law had all been helped by Dr. Barone. She encouraged me to go for a consultation but I thought arthritis, fibromyalgia, and bad knees wouldn’t be helped by it. I’d had some luck with dietary changes in the past. Finally I was experiencing lower back pain and while walking my daughter noticed I was toeing in with my left foot. I also was feeling a little off balance.
The symptoms were beginning to really interfere with my lifestyle and even more with the lifestyle I hoped to have. Ballroom dancing was getting more difficult. I found walking rather boring and wanted to go hiking again. I wanted to be able to be more active with my grandchildren and I wanted to take up snowshoeing.
Finally I had enough and thought just because I was 68 didn’t mean I was ready to give in to a decrepit life. I decided to give NUCCA a try.
Everyone in the office was friendly, helpful and upbeat. Measurements and x-rays confirmed I was out of alignment causing one leg to be one inch longer. Treatment consisted of a slight pressure on the neck to put the cervical bones in their proper place. It was quick and painless!
Within a matter of a couple weeks I was beginning to feel better. My symptoms are lessening. I have less knee and back pain, the knots in my thigh are less painful and I have more energy. It took me many years to get where I am but already I am beginning to recover.

Friend referred me to Barone Spinal Care as I was complaining to him about back pain. I am a real estate agent and I spent a lot of time in a car driving. I was very skeptical however he was very persuasive for me to try it. After X-rays it showed that I need to be adjusted and my body is out of alignment. To my surprise after just few visits my back pain disappeared. I am able to get in and get out of the car without any pain. Even for past 3 weeks I hold my alignment and my body adjusts very quickly. I had no idea that simple atlas adjustment is responsible for so many parts of your body and so much pain. Now I am thankful I listened to my friend and Barone Spinal Care for “pain free me”.
