Dear Dr. Barone and Dr. Landholm,
I am a 29 year old woman who has been suffering from physical ailments since I was 15 years old. When I was younger, I experienced several instances where I passed out, fell and hit my head on the floor. I never thought that these falls caused any damage or injury to my body, I even went to the emergency room following a severe fall when I was 15 in which I hit my head on tile floor. But the emergency room staff released me stating that there were no diagnosis or issues with me. Immediately after that fall I began suffering from severe daily anxiety and panic attacks that felt as if I was having a heart attack and dying these have continued to present day.

As the years passed, I began to suffer from other physical issues, heart palpitations, digestive problems, insomnia, menstrual pain & irregularity, lower back pain and bulging discs in my lower back, and recently about a year ago I began to suffer from spells of vertigo, dizziness, loss of proprioception, mental fog, cross eyes and problems focusing my eyes on pretty much everything. I began to have sinus problems and allergy type symptoms in my ears and throat.

As most people would I visited several doctors (gynecologists, gastroenterologists, internal medicine physicians, ENTs, Orthopedists and physical therapists) who all put me through expensive testings (colonoscopy, ultrasounds, MRIs, CAT scans, scopy of my sinuses, extensive eye exams etc. I even got lasik surgery thinking it was my vision prescription) with no answers but huge bills to pay. One doctor even said that I should get elective endoscopy of my uterus to check for endometriosis that he couldn’t diagnosis but thought must be the problem since nothing else was found conclusive. Elective surgery for something he wasn’t even positive I had… he was positive I had it, I knew in my gut I didn’t. And he was wrong I was right I do not have endometriosis. The modern medical field has severely disappointed me and I now greatly mistrust it. Drugs and surgery seem to be their only advice.

I was becoming very upset and anxious, having problems working because of the visual disturbances and loss of balance, and enjoying my life in general since being conscious meant enduring alarming symptoms. I thought I was breaking down at 29. The last doctor I visited told me I should see a neurologist immediately and get a CAT scan or MRI of my head (maybe it’s a tumor or a disease) which was terrifying for me to hear. Before I took this step, I came to see Dr. Landholm whom I met at Xsport fitness club in Schaumburg, IL. I told her it was a God send because the night before I knew I needed to see a chiropractor and doing some research of clinics in the area, I had decided to see Dr. Barone’s clinic but the following day was a Wednesday and the office was closed, but that Wednesday I met Dr. Landholm at the gym and she got me for an appointment in right away for only $25. I used to work for a chiropractor and initial exams tend to run around $200. So that was another God send.

I have been receiving chiropractic treatment for the last four years of my life and I am a licensed Massage Therapist so I know the healing benefits of body work and the ability of the body to heal itself, so trying NUCCA treatment sounded like a no lose situation, no matter what something would improve. I also knew how important it was that the Atlas be aligned, what I didn’t know was the traditional chiropractic care I was receiving was not specific enough for my atlas subluxation and that I needed an upper cervical specialist.

I was welcomed to the office with smiling faces, by name. The staff is wonderful and I felt very comfortable from the moment I walked in. The exams were incredibly thorough, nothing like I have ever been through before at other Chiropractors. I was actually measured for my leg length difference and for my shoulder height difference and hip height difference. Even for the torque or twist in my spine. Previous Chiros would just eye ball it and guestimate from their own vision no measuring at all. The x-rays were amazing they were so specific and really opened my eyes to how crooked my head and neck were. I have always noticed that in photographs my head always tilts and I crane my neck to one side. This is exactly what my x-rays showed. My last set of cervical x-rays at my last chiro, he pointed out that my neck was leaning to the left, but never said why or what he would do to fix it or that maybe I needed to see an upper cervical specialist about it. The other exams confirmed things I already knew from other doctors and from my field of therapy, that my body was torqued and twisted and that I had a right short leg due to muscular tension.

The first adjustment was so gentle and painless, when it was over I said “you didn’t even touch me how did anything happen?” But I laugh now when I overhear a new patient say that because something did happen and is happening. My body immediately began to detox after my first adjustment which was a little alarming, but I learned that this was my body beginning to heal. I also experienced a spell of fatigue for a few weeks but also learned this was due to my body using energy to heal. These signs let me know that change was taking place within my body.

After about fourth weeks, I began to see results. Currently I am in my sixth week and I can report that the visual distortions and disturbances are gone. I want to cry with joy because if it wasn’t for Dr. Landholm, I would be dealing with an enormous bill from an MRI or CAT scan and God knows how many other exams from a neurologist. Dr. Landholm is my neurologist now! I have also began to notice that once my alignments began to hold longer than a day or so, my anxiety and panic attacks have begun to diminish. This is incredible to me.

I can tell at the gym that I am carrying my weight differently in my feet; even my boyfriend commented how I look more balanced when I am performing my weight training maneuvers. I can feel it too! I even noticed in the reflection of the TV while I was on the elliptical machine that my left shoulder wasn’t hiking itself higher than the right anymore.

Because of my high medical bills from seeing other doctors I have been financially strapped but the doctors and staff here worked with me so that I could receive treatment and I am so grateful for this. This truly tells that when Dr. Barone and Dr. Landholm say they are in the business of getting people well they mean it completely. They are more interested in my improvement then in how much money they can make off of me.

I really like how the doctors show updated body scans and tests so you can watch your improvement it motivates me to continue on my treatment plans. I am so excited that I am already seeing improvements and I know the longer I stay aligned the more healing will take place so I am hopeful for my future thanks to Dr. Barone and Dr. Landholm THANK YOU! The greatest dream in my heart is to be off of anxiety prescription drugs and for the first time I believe that in the future with these treatments, this will become a reality! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!

I am a 65-year-old woman with degenerative lumbar stenosis. Three years ago I had a successful laminectomy to relieve severe sciatica, but new similar pain started to develop about a year ago. I found myself constantly hunched over, avoiding most activity, unable to walk very far without severe hip pain, and getting depressed. Comparing my three MRIs taken over a 10-year period, I saw my diagnosis go from mild to moderate to severe stenosis. I wondered where I would be in another 10 years… maybe in a wheelchair. I knew I needed to find some other way to deal with this besides more surgery.

Meanwhile, my brother and his wife, who is a pediatric physical therapist, were getting significant relief from their neck and shoulder pain by visiting a NUCCA doctor, one coincidentally trained by Dr. Barone. Hearing how well they were both doing I decided I had nothing to lose and made an appointment to be evaluated by Dr. Barone.

After my first adjustment, I started feeling better right away. My posture immediately improved, my energy level increased and the pain in my hip started to subside. After a month I was starting to regain the feeling in my feet, my gait was better, leg cramps were virtually gone and even my knee pain was lessened.

After three months, my spine is noticeably straighter and I can do a lot of the activities I used to do. I still have a way to go, but every adjustment brings me closer to my goal. I still have stenosis – that will never go away – but we have lessened its effects and stopped it from interfering with my life.

Thanks to Dr. Barone, Dr. Bulcher and the wonderful staff at Barone Spinal Care, I can plan to have a long and motion-filled life!

To Whom It Concerns

I am a recently retired 64 age male. I am a lifelong walker who also enjoys golf and travel. In the fall of 2014, I suffered a sprained quad muscle that affected my walking gait. I had physical therapy and now do a daily stretching routine, but I still have pain in my right hip and arthritic knees.
In April of 2016, I met Dr. Peter Bulcher at the Golfsmith store in Schaumburg, Illinois. He offered a discounted back spine analysis. When I arrived at Barone Spinal Care and Performance for my initial visit, I was impressed with the office staff and orientation to the NUCCA process. I am greeted by name by the office staff upon arrival for my appointments and the office staff is professional in handling issues with insurance and payments.
At first I was hesitant if this would do anything. Yet after 12 weeks of sessions, I am walking much better, my stride is back to where it was. My wife and golf buddies have commented how my walking has improved. In addition, I am able to sleep on my right side. While I still continue to do my stretching routines and watch my weight, I feel the benefits received from Barone Spinal Care and Performance has given me improved quality of life. I just played and walked nine holes at Fox Run Golf Course this morning. I am a believer

I am a 52 yr old very active male that has been suffering from lower back pain for as long as I can remember. If I’m on my feet- especially just standing in one place- for over 30 min, my lower back tightens up. I exercise 5-6 days a week- jogging ~ 3 miles, stepper machine, weights and walking 18 holes on a golf course once per week during summer. The back pain is always there, and although it hasn’t prevented me from staying active, it was always in the back of my mind (no pun intended). I’m constantly trying to stretch out my back.

I visited another chiropractic facility that focuses on back pain. They prescribed an MRI which showed a slight bulging disc and promised they could improve my situation in 4-6 mos. After visiting 3x per week for 1.5 hrs per session- being put in a tight harness, hung from above and stretched horizontally on a table, I felt slight improvement- but not enough to continue.

I met Dr Landholm at the PGA Superstore on Golf Rd one Sat in May (while being treated at the aforementioned practice). She showed me how my muscle imbalance was probably a result of misalignment and was causing my pain. I told her that I would continue with my current treatment for a few more months. Since the improvement wasn’t occurring, a few months later I called Dr Landholm and made an appointment.
I had never heard of NUCCA but learned a lot in my first visit. It certainly didn’t seem that adjusting one vertebra would make that much difference on my lower back. I was impressed with the precision they used in taking x-rays and measuring my vertebrae. Dr Landholm and Dr Barone were confident their procedures would work. I was skeptical but willing to try.

After analyzing my x-rays Dr Barone did the first adjustment. I was shocked that it took five minutes and was painless. He asked me to walk across the floor and let me know if I noticed a difference. I did not expect one adjustment to make a difference and I wasn’t sure if it did. He said some feel a difference immediately and others take more time. I must say, later that day my lower back pain seemed to subside.

Over the last 10 mos the adjustments have been less frequent- in some cases I’ve gone 4-5 weeks without an adjustment. My back pain definitely has reduced, but it’s not completely eliminated. After a round of golf (walking) it is definitely much better than it was a year ago. And I don’t feel it nearly as much as I did when I started treatment. I’m hopeful that a few more months of keeping me aligned will help get me back to pain free.
The office staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. I’ve already referred a coworker and would recommend anyone with back issues to make an appointment.

Dear Dr Barone,

A little over a year ago I met Dr Landholm at the Palatine Street Fest and found myself intrigued by the chiropractic method and after the assessment I took a chance as I believed in trying new approaches to health.

I had lower back pain and bad knees and a few months earlier I went into a diabetic coma, and after coming out of it I had bad neuropathy and was dependent on insulin.

I have tried several other natural remedies and traditional chiropractic, and I now swear by Dr Barone’s method. It has been a year and it seems to have stabilized and now even feeling much better. In general my diabetic neuropathy is nonexistent even now off my meds for that. I am still on insulin but my A1C down to 7.1 from 8.6.

I enjoy going to the office as Dr Barone and his staff are the best and I like their professionalism and helpfulness.
I would also highly recommend them as I find it helps me function better and be healthier.

I met Dr. Landholm at the Abilities Expo at the Schaumburg Renaissance’s Center in June of 2015. I have been coming to you now for 1 year and the difference in my health is unbelievable.

I had been suffering from terrible lower back pain, numbness in my right hand, pain in my right leg and knee for about 9 months. I was also on high blood pressure medication. After my treatments, my pain is gone in my back and leg and I am no longer on medication for my blood pressure.

I can’t tell you how grateful I am that I met Dr. Landholm and decided to make that initial appointment. I have recommended you to friends that I know could benefit from your services.

Also, everyone on your staff has been a pleasure to work with. From being greeted by name to asking how my day was going has made this a pleasurable experience.

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”.

I am 50 years old and I met Dr. Bulcher at the Gluten Free Convention in May of 2016. I joking asked him to talk to me about sciatica.

I explained to Dr. Bulcher that in August of 2015 I found myself suffering with extreme pain from a sciatic attack. The pain was so intense I could not walk, stand, sit or lie down. The ER prescribed muscle relaxers, nerve relaxers, anti inflammatory and stretching exercises. It took over three weeks for pain and discomfort to disappear.

At the time I met Dr. Bulcher the sciatica had started to flare back up and I was three days into all the medications again. Dr. Bulcher explained to me after scanning my back that the cause of my discomfort may not be from my lower back / sciatica. He suggested an office visit to discuss possible causes.

After discussing the possible causes he suggested X-rays to check my neck for alignment issues. At the follow up and review of the X-rays it was suggested I be treated for a dislocated vertebrae in the upper neck. I figured what did I have to lose if it didn’t work. I had seen a chiropractor last year and it caused the discomfort to be worst.

After my first adjustment I noticed a change. I felt taller, lighter on my feet and it felt like my head was tipping to the other side of my body. I experienced a little vertigo but it quickly went away after resting.

The very next morning upon waking up my hips, knees and ankles did not hurt like they had been for last several months. I jumped right out of bed. I felt great. Very little to no pain in my sciatica.

I am a believer.

The office staff are wonderful. Every time I walk into the office Kasia greets me by name. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. The doctors are knowledgeable and dedicated to the wellness of the patient.

I am so thankful for meeting Dr. Bulcher and Barone Spinal Care.

I believe that things happen for a reason. I went to Golfsmith looking for a new driver and met one of the doctors who works for Barone Spinal Care & Performance. He was very friendly and offered me an evaluation of my spinal cord. At the beginning I was a little reluctant because I was under a different treatment with another chiropractor but I never reached the results I was expecting so I decided to let him do the analysis. The analysis reflected a serious problem that (although found by the former chiropractor) was not fixed after visiting the previous chiropractor for almost five months. After he explained me the results, I decided to make an appointment to see him at his office. The x rays showed that one of my legs was shorter than the other due to an unbalanced hip. I knew, I was experiencing a pain on my left hip for more than 20 years but I have been under the impression that there was no real solution for my problem. After the results of the x rays, I visited the office of Barone Spinal Care & Performance and was impressed with the result of my first treatment. My hip was in balance and the length of both legs were the same. Since then, they have been monitoring my improvements and I feel happy with the result. I feel happy by having no pain on my hip anymore and my self-esteem has improved. I truly recommend the office of Dr. Barone.

I had severe neck pain and limited range of motion for nearly a year when I started my treatments at Barone Spinal Care. Prior to this, I’d been to an orthopedic doctor, who prescribed physical therapy and pain meds. I had acupuncture, I went to a naprapath for massage and adjustments. None of these treatments did anything to help my pain or stiffness. A friend recommended Dr. Barone and NUCCA and swore by it. I’ve been getting adjustments for about one month now. I have much less pain and better range of motion.  The adjustments are painless and there is no yanking or cracking, unlike traditional chiropractic.  I was skeptical that it would work, but I’m now a believer.

Since I was 22, I have suffered with low back pain. While in the military, I injured my back while taking inventory at the local commissary, lifting boxes from numerous positions. The next day I found that I could barely move out of bed.

As a young man, I was able to recover most of my mobility after a few weeks. However, several years later, this injury got dramatically worse, causing me to make major adjustments to maintain a normal life.

I have since visited numerous chiropractors and tried self-help methods. While all of these helped to some degree, I never felt any of these systems addressed the real issue. I felt they provided a band aid for my ailment that required much more.

I was in the Schaumburg PGA store last year, when I met Dr. Landholm. We chatted a few minutes, during which time she suggested I give Barone Spinal Care a shot. Frankly, I didn’t believe much would change from any of the other doctors that I had seen.

After more than 15 months of working with Dr. Landholm, they’ve been able to totally change my initial opinion. I’m a believer that their method does work.

1) I have less low back pain
2) The frequency is far less when I do have some pain than at any time since my initial injury, some 40 plus years ago.
3) My flexibility is much better than before I visited Barone Spinal Care.
4) I had issues with my right leg when seated in tight places, such as seats in the United Center. I now no longer have that issue.
5) My IT and hamstring are far more flexible since working with Barone Spinal Care.
6) Recent tests show that I have improved my circulation and posture.

Not only has my health improved, but I can’t say enough about how great the entire Barone staff has been during my visits. No matter which Barone customer service personnel I meet, they always greet me by name.

Al Bullock

To whom it may concern,

Let me first congratulate you on making the smart choice of visiting Barone Spinal Care. Now I know what you’re thinking: Is this another letter about the wonders and powers of the great and wonderful Barone Spinal Care Team? You’re exactly right, it is!

I have been a patient for only a few months, and I can tell you: my results have been fantastic and very encouraging. I came in, like many of you, with issues with my neck/back/hip. It wasn’t a lifelong or hereditary condition, but it had been festering for a very long time. Something was not right with my body. After all the consultations, meeting with doctors, and trying to understand what was going on, I was still puzzled.

In a last ditch effort, I was watching videos about NUCCA and it led me to Barone Spinal Care. Since my first visit to them, it has been a pleasure. First of all, they are extremely warm and friendly people.

Dr. Barone is very knowledgeable and very down to earth. Like Dr. Barone, the staff are very passionate and happy to help. It’s been a mere 3 months, and I feel so much better. Like life and health, you always have to continue down the path, but I’m blessed I got to meet and be a very happy patient to the Barone Spinal Care team. Enjoy your journey, and always be thankful for whoever you meet on your path to success!

With most sincere regards,

Dear Dr. Barone and Dr. Landholm, May 2016

My name is Elisa and I am 23 years old. I have always some mild neck tension but within the past year and a half the pain has worsened and started to affect my whole back. At first, I thought the pain and discomfort was “normal” since I am a Nurse and lift and turn heavy patients frequently. I bought a back brace a while back, started working on my back muscles more at the gym, and started treating myself to back massages. All of those options worked slightly with my pain but it was still very uncomfortable. I still always felt like my back was tense and painful which always put a damper on my mood. I was at XSPORT fitness working out when I ran into Dr. Landholm, she had offered to do a free back scan for me. I knew the results were not going to be very good but after reviewing the scan with Dr. Landholm (all red and barely any green), I was in shock. She convinced me to follow-up at the office and I did. I never heard of NUCCA before and I was skeptical to start care since nothing up to this point had seemed to work yet. Once I started care, I had already felt a lot of the tension start to ease up. I have been going to Barone Spinal Care since January and my pain and tension continues to get a lot better. I used to wake up in the middle of the night a few times a week with horrible cramping in my calves and now that rarely happens. All of my friends also keep asking me if I grew because I look taller. All of the staff in the office are all very welcoming and friendly. I always plan my adjustments for before work because I feel so much better after an adjustment and love going into the relaxation room afterwards. The quiet music, comfortable chairs, and artwork help me relax and clear my mind. I have enjoyed the care that Barone Spinal Care offers so much that I convinced my mother, who has been complaining of similar symptoms that I had, to come in and check it out. She has just started care but has only said great things about her time there. I am so happy that I ran into Dr. Landholm that day at XSPORT and started treatment at Barone Spinal Care.

I am a 69 year old golf enthusiast. I live on a golf course, and I play golf almost every day that weather permits. For the past several years, I have suffered with pain in the left hip and lower back. Within recent years, I have been diagnosed with bursitis in the left hip. With regards to the back, I have had episodes with back pain so severe that I needed to hold on to furniture or walls to be able to walk around the house. After one painful episode, I was diagnosed with a herniated disc at L4/L5 and prescribed muscle relaxant and pain medication to relieve the immediate pain, as well as physical therapy for long term recovery. After completing the prescribed pt, I continued the exercises; but there were times that the back pain would cause me to flinch during a golf swing, and sometimes the hip pain would be too severe to continue with a round of golf.

At the end of golf season last year, while browsing in the Schaumburg PGA Superstore, I met Dr. Jordan Landholm who was offering a free computerized spinal examination to measure tension in the muscles of the neck and back. I agreed to the on the spot exam which indicated that I might benefit from the chiropractic treatment method practiced at Barone Spinal Care & Performance. I had no previous experience with chiropractic treatment, but I had been considering looking into chiropractic treatment for my back and hip, since I was not satisfied with the status of my health. I wanted to be able to play golf pain free, but regular medical treatment was not achieving that goal. I was totally unfamiliar with the NUCCA chiropractic method practiced at Barone Spinal Care & Performance, and I was skeptical that aligning the atlas of the spine would be sufficient to correct the problems that I was having with my back and hip. However, at the midway point of a 6 month treatment plan, I am playing golf with significantly less pain than in previous years. Other areas of my life have improved as well. I used to have pain in the back and hip after driving for a considerable distance, but I recently drove over 3200 miles in 2 weeks virtually pain free. I used to have a flare up of painful muscles after periods of repeated activity such as cleaning the car or doing yard work, but now the pain is negligible after doing a considerable amount of spring cleaning and yard work over the past several weeks. I don’t feel that I am totally “cured,” but I feel like I have come a long way toward reaching my goal of playing golf pain free and being able to perform daily activities without considerable discomfort.

I am impressed with the professional, friendly doctors and staff at Barone Spinal Care & Performance. Upon entering the building, I am always greeted by name; and the efficiency of scheduling and coordination of appointments results in very short wait times. I am amazed that what seems like very minor adjustments of the atlas vertebra can have a significant impact on health; but thus far, it sure seems to be working for me.

My name is Robert Back and I am 60 years old. About 9 years ago my feel started getting numb at my toes and I went to a Regular Chiropractor for about 2 years and the numbness would go away after treatment but then come back. I then tried Deep Tissue Massages for about 2 years and the same thing happened, the numbness would go away after treatment and then come back. Besides the numbness in my feet, I started to notice that my balance was getting worse while I was walking, biking, or golfing. Then one day, I needed to replace a light bulb and I felt very uneasy when I got up on a chair to change the lightbulb and almost fell. Soon after that, about 5 years ago, I went to a Golf Show and as I was walking through the Show with a friend and we came upon Dr. Barone’s booth. We were both scanned by Dr. Barone’s assistant and both of us had scans with lots of red versus green. I would have normally said thanks and go on my way but this time because of the numbness in my feet and now my concern about almost falling off the chair, I ask what is the difference between Dr. Barone Chiropractic Care versus Regular Chiropractic Care. She basically gave me a lot of information but what hit home was what she said about 1 st vertebra has to be aligned perfectly to your spine and by taking x-rays you can pin point where to apply hand pressure against your neck to lock the 1 st vertebra to spine properly. This information from Dr. Barone’s assistant persuaded me to make an appointment. After my first hand pressure treatment to my neck, I was in complete shock that my numbness in feet went away immediately and my balance was back to normal. If I had not gone to Dr. Barone, would I still be going from one treatment to the next or even worse, given up? I am indebted to Dr. Barone and his team for improving my quality of life and being there for future appointments to lock again my 1st vertebra to spine properly when it does not hold for various reasons.

Dr. Landholm,

It is my honor to know you and the work you are doing at Barone Spinal Care & Performance. It has truly been interesting and informative for me. I am 70 years old and have had MS for 30 years. I have seen many alternative doctors that have helped me with different problems concerning my decline with MS. You never know what you could wake up with that could attack your body: speech, balance, knee cap going backwards, immune system failing, ect. Walking with a cane, using a wheelchair, and other debilitating things are a normal way of life for me. People sometimes forget that the person inside is only asking for friendship and not pity in the form of a pat on the head.

I started care with Dr. Landholm after meeting her at a craft fair. I was very impressed with her knowledge and she was very easy to talk to. At that time I had a growing concern about losing control of my hands because one of my biggest joys is working on crafts. My concerns now are leg cramps, burning sensations in my arm, right foot inversion, fatigue, circulation, and posture. I am happy to write this testimonial because all of the concerns I have mentioned have improved in only a few months. I feel that there is hope for me. I wake up every morning excited about life knowing that one day I will get rid of my cane and take a walk around the block. My concerns about the decline of my body had been rising after three friends with MS passed away. God bless the hands that heal.

Thank you, doctors, for giving people like me hope for a brighter tomorrow.

At 49 years old, I considered myself in pretty good shape.  I’m active. I’m healthy and didn’t think much about the little aches and pains that I thought just came with age.   I met Dr. Landholm and Dr. Bulcher at the PGA Superstore where they did a quick scan and asked me a few simple questions.  The questions got me thinking about my every day activity, and when I really thought about it, I realized that I did have some issues that I wanted to resolve.

After many years working at a computer, I had developed quite a bit of stiffness between my shoulder blades.  My lower back would go out about once a year causing some sciatic pain in my left hip.  My hips and shoulders were not in alignment, and while that didn’t cause direct pain that I was aware of, it certainly didn’t help my golf game.   These every day aches and pains that I thought just came with life, was enough to get me to schedule an appointment with Dr. Barone.

Dr. Barone and his staff are engaging, professional, thorough and take the time to answer your questions.  I had been to a chiropractor before and found short term relief from the ‘cracking’ that’s normally done, but the issues would return.  The method’s Dr. Barone use are geared toward resolving the overall issue, not just short term relief.   The treatment is pain free, relaxing and takes just minutes.

After just a few weeks the stiffness between my shoulder blades had gone and my hips are straighter.  I reinjured my lower back recently while lifting.  I came to the office for an evaluation and within a few short hours of treatment, my pain was all but gone. Pain of that nature typically lasted a week or longer in the past.  That in itself was confirmation that I made a good choice that day in the PGA Superstore.
I’d like to Thank Dr. Barone and his team for the care they provide. They do it in a very professional, friendly and welcoming manner.

Continued success,

Dear Drs. Landholm and Barone,
My name is Lucy and I am 58 years old. I had the pleasure to meet Dr. Landholm at one of the gluten free shows in my neighborhood and she introduced me to Barone Spinal Care & Performance. I was really happy to meet her as I have been having back problems for many years now.

In year 1980 my one year old daughter and I have suffered a very serious car accident in which we both were passengers and I lost consciousness for six hours. At the time I was in my fifth month of pregnancy. In that car accident, during the vehicle’s fall from a cliff, I hit my head really bad on the door frame which caused me to lose my consciousness. The hit was so strong and powerful that it caused my atlas to move into a different location near which a hematoma developed.

During that time the hematoma could not be removed because of my pregnancy. After my horribly painful labor and one year of time passed the surgeon wanted to remove the hematoma at which time he discovered that the hematoma is gone.

For 30 years now I have been suffering from irresistible headaches, ringing in ears, vision problems and muscle pain which had me visit many doctors, hospitals, and specialists. No one seemed to be able to help me find the reason behind the symptoms and I slowly started to lose my hope of ever being able to find the reason.
Three years ago I have suffered another car accident which worsened my condition.
A year ago when I met Dr. Landholm, she gave me hope to be able to function normally without my horrible symptoms.

I have attended many sessions at Barone Spinal Care & Performance and felt bad after some however Dr. Landholm explained that it was a normal reaction and means that the body is reacting to it.
Now after many sessions I feel incredible improvement. No muscle pain, I sleep really well, and wear shoes without any problem and pain. I still get headaches from time to time and ringing in my ears, but it’s nothing what it was in the past.

In that short letter I would like to thank you, Dr. Barone, Dr. Landholm and entire staff at Barone Spinal Care & Performance for your hard work, support for the help.

The professionalism and warm atmosphere at your clinic is spectacular and one of a kind. When you walk into the clinic the vibe and the positive faces make you feel at home. To have that these days and especially when you are suffering from pain and making that experience one of a kind!
Once again, thank you for that.

Hope you are around for many more years to come….

– Lucyna Boron

Dear Dr. Barone,
I am 18 years old and have had a variety of problems including scoliosis, dizziness, lightheadedness, chest pain, nausea, paresthesia, lack of energy, and acid reflux. I did not correlate these problems with my atlas bone being out of place until I came to Barone Spinal Care and Performance. I didn’t even know that my atlas bone was twisted until coming to Barone. They told me that my nerves were traveling through a much smaller hole than they were supposed to because of my twisted atlas bone. I have had a few concussions when I was younger which may have caused this, or I was born with my atlas bone out of place. Either way it has caused me a lot of problems that Nucca chiropractic is now beginning to correct. My health took a huge plunge this year, which was very discouraging to me as I do cross country, speed skating, and track. I have been speed skating since a little girl and have a big passion for it. I have been competing at a national and world level and recently went on a trip to Changchun, China in March to compete in the Junior World Longtrack Speedskating competition. Barone Spinal Care and Performance helped me prepare for this trip. Since starting at Barone in early February, my health has taken a huge turn in a good direction, and my skating times have improved. Many of my symptoms are gone or getting better, and I am standing a little taller. I’m hoping that Nucca Chiropractic will continue to straighten and heal my body. The doctors and staff are very friendly and welcoming, and I thank the Lord for bringing me to Barone Spinal Care and Performance.

I’m not typically one to leave a testimonial but I will give credit when credit is due.

I learned about Barone Spinal Care at my gym. They had a booth and usually I try to avoid such things but decided to listen to what was being offered. The truth is that I was having sporadic back issues and odd muscle spasms so I wasn’t surprised when she told me things appeared to be out of alignment and that I should consider coming into the office for a full examination. I had had other care in the past that helped temporarily so I thought I knew what to expect and was a bit apprehensive about going. After learning a bit more I agreed to go in for care and I’m glad I did.

The customer service at Barone is top notch. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. It’s a completely different approach to spinal correction. I was apprehensive but decided that my spine is important and proper care wasn’t negotiable. I signed up for care and after 2 sessions I could completely tell the difference in my range of motion. I do a lot of dance and it requires flexibility and agility. I have always been able to do the moves but it wasn’t always without discomfort. Since I’ve started treatment I have noticed that there’s little to no discomfort and my workouts are a lot better. Initially, I thought I may just be going to through a good period with my spine, however, the result has been consistent. I recently had my spine reexamined and there were drastic improvements to my spine compared to where I started.

I would definitely recommend Barone Spinal Care. You’ll be glad you did.

To Dr. Barone and Supporting Staff,

I first met Dr. Landholm at the PGA superstore last year. I had lower back pain and occasional sciatica in my legs from time to time. After the first initial test, I was skeptical that my neck was causing a problem but I did remember at the time that when I was very young, I had been run over on a truck while I was on my bike. During my initial visit, I watched the video on the way that Dr. Barone and other treating physicians would be treating me. I was excited because it did not look like they were going to do any cracking of the joints or extreme manipulations. I went ahead and went on my way to continued adjustments to my atlas. I have noticed increased energy and better health altogether with the treatments. I especially like to have perfect posture as this will help me both for my balance when playing sports or practicing my martial art Aikido. The posture helps me maintain a more relaxed state which helps me with the techniques of Aikido as I need to be calm and relaxed to properly throw my opponents. After two months of treatment I have less back pain and in general more relaxed with more energy. I will continue my treatment program as I have seen a big improvement both mentally and physically. I would like to thank Dr. Barone, Dr. Landholm, Dr. Bulcher and the staff for helping me attain a better posture.

Thank you,

Justin L.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am 65 years young, and recently retired. I have been suffering from low back pain, and left hip and knee pain for years. I met Dr. Landholm at the PGA Superstore on 9/5/15. She asked me if I wanted a free spine screening, and I accepted. My back, left hip, left knee, and IT band were sore from a round of golf that morning. Dr. Landholm gave me the screening, and she said she had rarely seen readings that high. I asked her to explain further, and I realized my spine was out of alignment. Upon visiting Barone Spinal Care for my initial thorough exam, I was provided with confirmation of my spinal misalignment via xray and test results.

It turned out that I’ve been misaligned for almost 60 years, and my left leg was 1” “shorter” than my right leg.” The initial Upper Cervical Correction adjustment eliminated ¾” of the misalignment, and I felt lighter that before the adjustment. The second adjustment two days later resulted in my being aligned! My next round of golf was basically a pain free round, and I have much greater range of motion with my arms and shoulders.

Subsequent visits have been beneficial too. My pretest reading of 162 has been reduced to 81, and my goal is to achieve the “normal” reading of 55. Dr. Landholm has been excited with my progress, and I am too. I have not felt this good in decades, and I owe this great feeling to Barone Spinal Care.

The staff is caring as well, and exhibits a positive attitude each time I visit. My intensive care period ends within the next 4 weeks, and I hope by that time to be pain, and symptom free.

I’ve experienced three back surgeries earlier in my life due to athletic incidents. I’ve lived with what I thought was arthritic pain, and had to give up running a couple years ago. I’ve begun running again without pain, and my back feels great.

I have and will continue to recommend Barone Spinal Care to family, and friends who can improve their quality of life through your services. Thank you for everything.



My name is Dorothy Rachal. I am 71 years old. I have a few concerns about my health and I have been looking for a good chiropractor for some time. One Saturday morning, I was listening to the radio and I heard Dr. Barone’s ‘Back to Health’ program. It sounded really good but maybe too good to be true. I was very interested in what he had to say, but I was still very skeptical. In 2006 I was diagnosed with Tinnitus and permanent hearing loss in my right ear. I saw several ear specialists over the years including a trip to Mayo Clinic. With little results and no positive changes to my health I have reluctantly continued my search. Earlier this year I had an acute shoulder pain and was diagnosed with a frozen shoulder. Now having another health concern that was very painful I was determined to find an answer. Prayer is an important part of my life so when the following Saturday I heard the program again, I felt it was the right place for me so I called to make my first appointment. I saw Dr. Barone in early June of 2015. When I walked into the office, I knew I was in the right place. His knowledgeable and friendly staff gave me a tour while making me feel so welcome. I was rather amazed and impressed that after being there five minutes Dr. Barone was shaking my hand as if we had known each other for years.

I met Dr. Landholm and discussed my history. I was given a complete exam and workup with both doctors. I explained to Dr. Barone that the pain and range of motion in my shoulder was becoming more debilitating every day. I had my first treatment in June of 2015. In less than two months I am pain free. I am a patient that is committed to my health and I plan to stay with Barone Spinal Care to stay feeling great. There is no price on our health and sometimes it takes us not feeling well to remember that. You do not have to live with pain and I advise you to be proactive about your own health. You deserve it. God Bless and thank you Dr. Barone.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I have 37 years. In October of 2014 and start feel back pain, numbness in hands, legs and wrist pain. In the past I have tried different forms of chiropractic care but to no avail. I went to my doctor and I got the MRI. It was herniated disc that needs physical therapy or surgery in the future. Obviously I chose therapies, but no to avail. In May, my mother in law offered me Barone Spinal Care in Schaumburg, IL. I called for an appointment. My first visit was on May 2015, I got to learn more about NUCCA. All of the staff is very professional, knowledgeable, and have a sincere, heartfelt desire to make you feel better. I am now after 5 months of therapy and less numbness in hand, less numbness in legs, no wrist pain. I still have back pain, but I’m in the middle of treatment. Now further I will continue therapy to get rid of back pain.

My family and friends have been after me to stand up straight.  I told them that I am doing the best that I can.  I met Dr. Landholm at the Palatine Street Fest.  She did a scan on my neck.  My results were red and pink, not green.  I made an appointment for a full evaluation.  According to Dr. Barone, my results were shocking.  I signed up right on the spot to continue treatments to help improve my posture.  The results have been amazing.  My family and friends have commented on how much straighter I am standing!  Thanks to Dr. J I am an inch taller! The doctors and the staff are very friendly with a very positive outlook.  A great place to be a patient!

My name is Stan and I turned 50 this year in 2015. My health was not very good. I was overweight and had uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes. As a pharmacist I was very familiar with treating my ailments with drugs, but I was not getting any better. I suffered with lower back pain, knee pain and foot pain and I was always tired. I knew I needed to lose weight, but chronic pain and fatigue made it almost impossible to work out. One day after attempting to exercise at the gym, I met Dr. Landholm, who persuaded me to give Barone Spinal Care a try. After a comprehensive exam and x-rays, I was diagnosed as being out of alignment. The simple adjustment made a world of difference. I immediately felt better and became a changed person. I scheduled regular visits to check my alignment and make any necessary adjustments. A few months later, I am virtually pain free. My blood pressure is back to normal and I am no longer using insulin. Feeling better with a lot more energy has allowed me to exercise more regularly and drop 40 pounds. I thank Dr. Barone and Dr. Landholm and the entire team for my success and giving me hope that I may actually enjoy my next 50 years.



Dear Dr. Barone:

I am a 26 year old business development professional for a local non-profit organization in Schaumburg. I am physically active, love to be outside, and try to do strength training with cardio 3-4 times a week. Over the last few years, I have suffered from irritating neck pain, shoulder stiffness, and upper back aches. For the last 6 months or so, the pain was getting so bad that it was causing intense headaches on a daily basis, lack of sleep due to restlessness, and severe anxiety when I realized how poor my posture was getting. All of these symptoms were causing me to lose focus at work and fall behind on daily tasks. I sit at a desk on a computer for at least half of the day and would find myself constantly grabbing at my neck, shrugging my shoulders, and experiencing horrible mood swings and lack of overall motivation.

In the past, I have tried different forms of chiropractic care and have visited 3-4 clinics seeking relief. I’ve tried traditional chiropractic care, physical therapy, repetitive exercises, etc. but to no avail. At that point, I was starting to lose faith in the philosophy of chiropractic care altogether.

About a year ago, Dr. Barone spoke at an educational workshop hosted by our organization and I was intrigued by the NUCCA technique, however, I was still very discouraged by my past experiences and never followed up with him for care. My boss started seeing him that same week and has had tremendous results. After seeing her improve over the course of a year or so, I decided to give Barone Spinal Care a try. This decision was, hands down, the best I could have made. I can’t believe it took me so long to take the plunge!

My first couple of visits to the office were very informative. The staff and Dr. Barone took the time to thoroughly explain the NUCCA technique and how it is meant to improve my overall well-being. They took x-rays and sat down with me to go over them so I was able to understand the condition my spine was in. Afterwards, I received my first adjustment, which was completely painless and provided (for me) almost instant relief.

Over the next few weeks with adjustments, my headaches had completely subsided and I was able to get the best sleep I’ve had in a long time. My neck pain was diminishing, my shoulders gained more flexibility, and my upper back aches were going away. My posture is slowly getting better, which has lessened my anxiety that I’ve struggled with for a long time.

I’ve been coming to Barone Spinal Care for a few months now, and every time I walk into the office I am greeted on a first name basis and never have to wait more than 5-10 minutes to be seen. All of the staff is very professional, outgoing, knowledgeable, and have a sincere, heartfelt desire to make you feel better. I have never felt more comfortable and at ease with ANY doctor than I have with Dr. Barone, which is why I will be a patient of his for a long time to come.

I came to Barone Spinal Care a week after my husband became a patient in September. I suffered constantly with chronic hamstring tightness, lower back pain, tight IT bands, pain in neck and shoulders, cramps in the legs while sleeping, and poor balance walking up and down stairs. This pain was insidious, worsening for a period of 10 years or more. This was starting to seriously control my life in a most unpleasant way. As a 61 year old retired teacher, I realized the pain was not caused by career schedules, and it was beginning to have great impact on my present and future plans. After only 1 visit, the pain lessened dramatically and some completely disappeared. The change was subtle but definite. Energy levels changed immediately, all without any of the snap and crackle of regular chiropractic treatments. That is what is most amazing. With just a slight touch to the neck, pain decreases, energy increases. I feel lighter, clearer thinking, happier. The nutritional supplements have cut cravings for sugar and caffeine so much that I now have only one cup of coffee in the morning and often don’t finish it. I still enjoy chocolate but now a small serving is more than enough to satisfy my sweet tooth, not as something I constantly crave. I have lost 10 pounds since starting with Barone Spinal Care in September.

Entering the office, everyone is greeted with sincere, personal and welcoming professionalism. The office is well organized and there is very little wait time to see the doctors for an exam. Questions are answered well and treatments explained with visuals and your own actual X-rays. The atmosphere throughout the entire visit is one of concern and passion for complete wellness of each patient. Every visit is a pleasant experience. Such happiness is also good “medicine.”

As a retired teacher, I have too much life planned to be slowed by pain. I am so grateful to have met the folks of Barone Spinal Care. Not only have you helped me feel better now, you’ve opened up the future. Thank you.

Dear Dr. Barone,

In April 1994, at the age of 57, I was involved in an automobile accident where I experienced severe cervical injuries due to whiplash. For insurance purposes and since it was a workman’s compensation situation, I was sent to a neurosurgeon who ended up prescribing pain killers and exercises since I resisted surgery as a course of resolution. I also consumed a variety of non-prescription drugs (ibuprofen). Eventually, the condition was resolved and I remained my typical normal self with only occasional visits to the chiropractor to address my lumbar back problems, but not allowing him to touch the cervical area of my spine.

In November of 2004 I had to have a heart valve replacement. Upon a flare up of my cervical problem returning in December 2007, I was fortunate to be able to go to Northwestern Hospital where my initial treatment was a prescription for Lyrica and Physical Therapy. After approximately 3 months I once again was able to resume a somewhat normal life of physical activity.

I was okay until April of 2013. I foolishly took on a repair project at my home that month that totally disabled me from any type of physical movement free of excruciating pain. I could not lie down or stand up without pain. Sitting in a straight back chair was how I had to sleep in order to be somewhat comfortable. The sciatic nerve pain was unbearable. I was essentially disabled.

My water conditioning system quit working and I called a company I had used earlier for a new hot water heater to address my problem. The repair man happened to be a patient of Barone Spinal Care and said I had to get to Dr. Barone as soon as possible.

I was accepted and treated on the same day in the most professional and thorough way I can recall from any medical professional. The treatment was painless and the results were miraculous. I could stand straight up and walk without pain after my first correction. It took several months of treatments to totally eliminate my sciatica nerve sensations, but now I have no discomfort whatsoever in my neck, back or legs.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I want to commend you and congratulate you on putting together a very successful organization that specializes in the art of healing. I believe it was Hippocrates who called it an art. But you have learned your craft well, and have been able to succeed very well, even as a purist, thereby becoming not only a model NUCCA doctor, but being a true artisan as a health practitioner in your practice, to thereby be able to teach others and to inspire them with your own success.

Having taught at the school that trained you, and to use that expertise on your fortunate patients as well as in the training of others, I want to personally thank you for helping my daughter and son-in-law to overcome problems that were prevalent in their lives, as well as helping their daughter Alicia. Well, as you probably know, my daughter, having delivered her second child, was chronically besieged with pain, causing motion sickness when she traveled in her car, and causing her to be unable to care properly for her two young daughters. She is in constant awe at the healing you have brought to her.

My own problem stemmed from accidents I suffered in 1955, one of which occurred when I was helping my father take a large bedspring out of the attic window. He suddenly let go of the rope and I fell to the ground with the bedspring on top of me. Two other injuries that year, one involved my swinging a bat that missed the ball but caused chronic pain, and a car accident left me with acute lordosis, scoliosis and kyphosis, which left me in pain in almost every position. I ended up going to Chiropractors, DO’s, back specialists, etc. in KC, Boston and Chicago, over the next 8 years, all to no avail. I did get some relief from a Naprapath, but it didn’t last. When I came to you I had been well over a year without being able to lay down, due to 4 major eye surgeries, which involved a balloon that was put in my eye to help hold things together. I could only recline slightly (30 degrees for ten weeks), but on March 13 of 2009, I had my fourth operation in which they had to go in, from the reverse, due to scar tissue and my lens had to be removed. Afterwards, I could only lean forward, but again no laying down or I would lose my sight and go blind. On May 29th, my daughter took me to my Retinal specialist for my appointment. I was told I could finally lie down as the balloon had dissipated sufficiently. On the way home, we stopped for a traffic light and were hit from behind by a young uninsured motorist. $2,000 damage to my daughter’s car, but she was 8.5 months pregnant, and my concern was more for her, but my whiplash was so severe I unable to lay down until November of that year.

It was then I heard once again your voice on a radio commercial, and I was determined to see you. By this time, I had about $1200 worth of x-rays, which I brought to our appointment. I believed that if you required more x-rays, you were a quack. However, the video I watched convinced me otherwise, and I knew you had to take more x-rays, and I knew why. Following the treatment, I faltered in my first step, as I was so different in terms of my posture and gait. Most important of all, I was out of pain. Now I can go 2-4 months without having my back go out, but I am really grateful for your being here. I am convinced that the healing that your practice brings will win you many converts, and I am also glad for your attitude of faith in following Christ. Thanks for the leadership that you bring to a world of pain.

A grateful patient,

My name is Karyn Feuling and I just turned 40 years old. Since I was a teen, I have always had a problem with motion sickness. Traveling in any kind of way, brought on significant problems such as…head pain (feeling as if there was a vice around my neck), headaches, nausea, neck and shoulder pain, trigger points, drowsiness, and fatigue. Whiplash would be a good word to describe how I felt most of the time. It would take me days to unwind after traveling in order to enjoy the destination. Even without traveling, I would still also experience these symptoms. I have sought many types of therapies to help correct these problems, all of which would bring some relief, but not in full. I have training as an herbalist and naturopath and I worked at a chiropractic college for several years. I thought I had exhausted every means of possible correction. I’ve used exercise, chiropractic, massage, naprapathy, cranial sacral therapy, herbal supplements and creams. Often just sleeping for hours would help relieve some of these tensions. It really has been progressively getting worse, to the point where even driving myself places has become difficult, let alone driving with others.

My father had learned about Barone Spinal Care on the local Christian radio station. Dr. Barone was able to help him with problems that he’s had for over 50 years. He encouraged me to go see him, too. I relunctantly went, thinking that no one could help me. I am so glad I was wrong! I started seeing Dr. Barone in June of 2012. I came in for a consultation and had the x-rays taken. And these were no ordinary x-rays. They were the most comprehensive x-rays on my scull that I have ever seen. After the explanation of his findings…I was hopeful. Then I was thrilled to experience my first treatment. Dr. Barone had me lay on my side and he very lightly maneuvered a small area in my upper cervical area. It was a simple, few seconds experience, and very light touch. Upon standing and walking I could feel that the “vice-like” symptoms in my neck had disappeared! My past experiences had included hours spent on a table, where the pain would leave only in part. But this was extremely different. The results were one hundred percent relief in a mere matter of seconds. My whiplash feelings were gone. (I might add here that I have been in many car collisions where I really did have whiplash. My daily sufferings could have come from those experiences). I came for treatments twice a week, and then once a week, and now once every other week. My neck pains would return if my C1 was out. Upon getting a treatment to put it back in, the pains would be gone, again. Unbelievable! I wish the C1 would stay permanently in place, however, the longer I have received treatments, the longer it stays in. I am forever grateful and will continue to come for treatments.

This has changed my life in so many ways. It has been close to 30 years that I have suffered with this problem. Now I live without pain, I sleep better, I function better in the evening, and I can travel without this huge debilitation. It has saved me time, money, and energy. It is amazing that I can travel in cars, buses, trains, planes, and boats without feeling like I’m going to pass out. I can vacation with family and friends without the fear of feeling non-functional for most of the trip. I can exercise to improve health without pain along the way. I don’t find myself canceling going places, or meeting with people. I accomplish more and there is more harmony in my home life, as I feel like a completely new person. I am so thankful to Dr. Barone and his entire staff for their kind and welcoming attitudes for the entirety of my experience. I know God has plans for me that I would not have been physically capable of before. I thank Dr. Barone for enhancing my life. He is a master at his craft.

My name is John and I am 44 years old. I’ve been coming to Dr. Barone for 9 months now. I had been seeing a naprapath for years due to chronic neck pains and hip pains. I would receive treatments for my neck which could hold for only a matter of hours at times. I had x-rays of my hips and was told I had one leg shorter than the other and needed orthotics.

After seeing Dr. Barone for the first time, I was amazed that a single treatment, that I couldn’t even feel the manipulation, corrected my cadence and my legs were magically the same length. I also noticed that the binding in my neck was instantly gone.

Although I don’t feel perfect, I know that my structure is the best it can be and the aches and pains I may still experience fall on “my shoulders” to take responsibility for eating healthy and exercising.

Thank you, Dr. Barone, for stabilizing my structure!

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.

Thank you.

My name is Allie Gallagher, I am a 24 year old day care teacher in the two year old classroom. I love my job, there is nothing that brings me such joy as going to work and making a difference in the lives of children. About 3 years ago, after getting into a car accident, I started having severe back pain. It was so bad I had to drop out of my college semester. I was given physical therapy for a few months and it temporarily helped but not enough. As the years went on, my back pain increased severely so much so it interfered with my job. I couldn’t lift the children, I couldn’t sit on the ground and interact with them. My pain got to the point my husband was helping me do pretty much everything, all I did was lie in bed. I went to a Doctor to find out the problem. I went through a horrible ordeal at that Doctor’s office. When I went to them I explained that I had been having severe back pain to the point I couldn’t get out of bed. The doctor wanted to run an MRI but he seemed doubtful there was anything wrong with my back. I got the MRI and found out at the age of 23 I had severe arthritis in my back. The doctor never came and spoke to me about it, a nurse came in and said we are giving you 7.5 – 750 Vicodin. I asked what the MRI showed and that’s when she told me I had arthritis. She told me my treatment options for the pain were getting epidural injection or surgery, and that I am most likely going to be going on temporary disability. I was in so much pain I was taking two Vicodins or more a day just to survive the pain, I am afraid of needles and the idea of a needle in my spine scared me half to death, and surgery no way. There had to be another way to help me. Then my neighbor told me about Dr. Barone. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, everything I had heard about Chiropractors was that it was a temporary pain relief, a crack here, a crack there then an hour later still hurting. She told me to give it a shot, what could I lose? I was already on the verge of having to leave my job. So I went and the office was so friendly and they greeted me everyday by name, and I instantly noticed a change in my back. The tension on my tailbone was relieved almost instantly, and now a year later I am virtually pain free. I went from thinking I would be on painkillers everyday for the rest of my life to using them once every two weeks, if at all. To put it short and simple, Dr. Barone saved my life! I don’t know what I would have done if not for Dr. Barone. I am enjoying my job more now that I don’t have to fight through the pain. Thank you! Thank you!

Dear Dr. Barone,

When I came to you for the first time in Jan 2012, I was suffering from an incredible lower back pain with stiff back muscles. I was having excruciating pain for over 2 weeks at that point and was not able to walk with a straight back. Ibuprofen had become part of my diet during those days. This was not the first time I had this kind of a pain. I have been living with this condition for over 15 yrs, which recurred every other year and sometimes twice a year. If I did not go to the doctor to get muscle relaxants (which I did a few times), the pain only became worse and a couple of times I landed up in the emergency room because I just could not walk.

When I came in to your office, I was looking for an alternate solution to going to the doctor for muscle relaxants and pain relievers. I came in very skeptical on a suggestion from a good friend of mine from Detroit. My skepticism seemed very logical because whoever heard of treating a neck bone to cure lower back pain! But I had no other option and was willing to try anything except go to a witch doctor!

After the x-rays and the analysis you and Dr. Jung did, you came up with the treatment plan on re-adjusting the Atlas bone since it was out of alignment. As I lay on the table waiting for your hands to touch my neck, I was still tremendously in pain and just lying down on my side was unbearable… I really wanted to get out of there and go home and lie down flat on my back. But less than a minute after you did the adjustment, somehow I felt different. I still remember my wife sitting in the chair next to me ready to jump up and hold me in case I fell down with severe back pain again. Miraculously, I was able to sit up and started taking baby steps very carefully… I did not want to jerk my back and experience the sting of the pain. Those baby steps became normal steps and I realized I was walking with a straight back! The pain was gone! I had not had pain killers that day and the pain had disappeared magically. In fact that was the last time I have had pain killers for a lower back pain in the whole of last year!

During my year of treatment with you, I have had small episodes of lower back pain because of my lifestyle where I keep stressing the muscles through exercise and playing games, etc. But every single time a visit to your office and your readjustment has taken away the pain and I have not had to take any painkillers. Apparently my Atlas keeps getting out of alignment frequently which you are able to re-adjust and help me recover quickly.

Because of my testimony two of my friends have had similar experience with their back pains.

Thank you for your treatment!

Dear Dr.Barone,

I was suffering from neck & shoulder pain for a while and with my age thought it could only be better with pain medication. I got a memory foam pillow and any other kind I could get but it did not go away. Years ago my husband went to your office for his back. In the last months he experienced numb fingers at night. We both started to see Dr. Barone in June. I am so glad I did! After a consultation session and x-rays, I started treatments. Your thoroughness and high standards are appreciated. After the 2nd adjustment, I felt better. Now, I get up in the morning with no pain and feel like a new person. I have no more finger stiffness or swelling, also less allergies.

Thank you Dr. Barone!

I am a 47 year old woman. I have been a migraine sufferer since I was a young child. My earliest recollection was sleeping sitting up during a migraine and vomiting. They can debilitate me for days at a time. As I have gotten older, they have not subsided. I manage them with meds now. In 2007, I herniated a disk in my lower back. Since then, the pain has increased with use of my back. It is more of a dull achiness than an acute pain. This year I have noticed some new symptoms of neck pain and achiness with a visual disturbance.

My mom begged me for years to see Dr. Barone for my back. Her persistence to see him increased as my health began to decline this summer. Finally, to end my mother’s nagging, I saw Dr. Barone. He did a thorough history and exam and concluded that I would be a good candidate for treatment.

Upon my second visit, I had my first adjustment. I noticed that I did not have any pain with the adjustment, but I did have lightness in my head and a difference in my neck pain. With each treatment, I feel as if I am getting closer to being more pain free. The biggest difference I have noticed is that when I don’t sleep correctly, I experience neck pain and a headache when I wake. My visual disturbance has also improved 100%.

Following Dr’s advice has been crucial to the path to wellness and being patient with the process of healing. It’s a journey, not an instant destination.

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 thermo graphic 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!

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:

I had been experiencing neck and shoulder pain and some pins and needles in my feet. Over the past three years I had visited about three other chiropractic offices and the therapies I received had relieved the pain but did not correct the root cause of the pain. Then, I had heard about Barone Spinal Care of 560 WIND radio in Chicago. I decided to go to their office for some tests. The staff of doctors and employees was thoughtful, considerate, and professional. I learned about my spinal subluxation through the muscle test and x-rays. The spinal adjustments were painless and the former neck and shoulder pain and stiffness had been eliminated. The adjustments also helped to greatly reduce the feeling of pins and needles in the feet.

Thank you.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I am 42 years old and live in Kentucky. I started having problems with my neck and left shoulder back in January 2005, I just thought I was getting older and some pains here and there come with age. In February 2005 I started having shooting pains going down my left arm and into my head. So I went to the doctor, he told me I probably pulled a muscle in my neck because it mainly stemmed from my neck. Then my left arm started to turn purple, cold and would swell, which means my circulation was being cut off, plus I would lose all feeling in that arm and hand. This really scared me, because all you ever hear is “if it’s your left arm, something is wrong with your heart…” .

I went through every single doctor & treatment possible to find out what was wrong, with no success. After being told that this would not go away without surgury, I scheduled my surgury for Feb of that year. I called my sister on January 4th2006 to tell her that I had scheduled the surgery. I just so happens that my sister works next door to Barone Spinal Care. One of the doctors listened as she told him about me & he told her to have me call him and talk to him before I have the surgery, because he thought they might be able to help me without going through such a traumatic procedure. So I called him, he was extremely knowledgeable on the subject and was so confident they could help me without doing any surgery that he asked me to come Illinois to see them. Of course I wanted to try anything to get out of the surgery, so I made an appointment.

My first visit was on January 24th2006,I got to learn more about NUCCA and their procedure and I got an evaluation to see if I would be eligible for them to help me. I must tell you, after meeting Dr. Barone I felt like I was family. They had a genuine concern for my well being.I left feeling confident that I could avoid having surgery. They asked me to give them three months to try and help, so I thought “what do I have to lose?” so I postponed my surgery. I came back on February 17, 2006 to have my first adjustment, which was painless, I didn’t feel anything. It was like a miracle, my arm instantly turned back to it’s normal color and was no longer cold. As I continue to come to Barone Spinal Care and have adjustments, my pains have gone away. I have regained the use of my left arm. My life is mine again, I no longer have problems sleeping or doing things with my children. The last time I had to be adjusted was in the middle of March, I have been holding in place since then.

I do not know how to ever thank Dr. Redinger, Dr. Barone and my sister for what they have done for me. I was living with so much pain for 1 year and now I have basically none, very minor, which should go away in time. If I went ahead with the surgery, I would still be recovering.

Thank you with all my heart. – Darla S.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I’m writing about my progress with the treatments through the Barone Spinal Care. I had various pains, soreness, and ailments which I didn’t attribute to the spine or nervous system. My posture was bad and I stood a bit on an angle, which was attributed to having one leg shorter than the other. My neck hurt due to stiffness when turning back in my car to check traffic. I had various pains in the shoulders, neck, hips, and lower back, and also experienced dizziness and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).

Having gone through 3 plus months of treatment, I have noticed improvement with all the above mentioned symptoms. Part of the treatment process was changing some of my bad habits, which involved sleeping on my stomach, and taking care not to put additional stresses on my neck. My posture is better with less pain, and I generally feel better than before. My neck and shoulder pains are mostly gone. I am hopeful that going through with the entire program will help me feel better.

One interesting occurrence was when Dr. Barone was providing results of the initial exam, he told me that I had some trauma to my neck 50 years ago. This surprised me because being 52 years old; I didn’t know what that could have been. So I told my mom what Dr. Barone said. She said when I was 1 or 2 years old, I had fallen out of my bed onto the floor. That was quite an educated statement which still surprises me.

Sincerely, – Ted S.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am 47 years old who has been suffering from severe neck pain, upper left shoulder blade pain, and headaches for over 5 years. The pain made me irritable and painful to exercise to my full capacity. I had seen a traditional chiropractor in the past and had massage therapy but the pain always returned and tightness of muscles continued.

I had heard about Barone Spinal Care thru clients at the gym who also went to Barone Spinal Care. I finally came into the office to find out what methods they used and what they could do for me. I started care that day. My overall experience has been Excellent. The doctors and staff have always been extremely friendly, professional and through and the wait time is never long. My corrections were never painful and I usually had immediate relief. I have been a patient of Dr. Barone’s for over one year now and have noticed pain relief and a better quality of life. My exercise sessions are no longer painful and I am less irritable because I am PAIN FREE!! I recommend Dr. Barone and his staff to anyone.

Dear Dr. Barone,

After a fall I took, tests showed that I had fractured my vertebrae in my lower back. I had been suffering severe back painsince then. I had a personal friend, Rita Baur, recommend Barone Spinal Care to me. Rita told me how greatly she had improved and said it was a series of simple procedures.I have been coming to the Barone Spinal Care clinic for several months 2x a week.

I noticed I had trouble reaching down to put on my socks and shoes. Lately I have had less trouble in that area. I have been walking more round the area where I live, my stomach is feeling better and my appetite is much better.

The staff is very nice. The doctors are very helpful and the ladies at the front desk are always helpful. The Doctor always shows me my personal chart at each treatment and shows me the progress I am making.I took advantage of one of the great packages that Barone Spinal Care offers and I intend to follow the whole course through.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I heard about Barone Spinal Care while listening to WYLL. I had trouble with sciatic nerve pain since January. I went to a traditional chiropractor and did get some relief but still had trouble walking and had slight pain.

I came to Dr. Barone in May with the complaint of neck pain. I felt relief immediately after the first adjustment.I have been seeing Dr. Barone twice a week since May and since then my neck pain is gone, I’m walking better, I taking the stairs when I can, and instead of sitting around I’m able to move up and down.

I’m thankful that I am getting much better since coming to Barone Spinal Care.

Joan S.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I would like to mention that since coming to Barone Spinal Care, I have seen significant improvements in quite a few areas. Before I began care I experienced headaches, allergies, dizziness, neck pain, trapezius pain, left hand numbness, heart burn, asthma symptoms, diarrhea, low back pain, bilateral foot pins and needles, fatigue, and right ankle swelling. I have experienced a 65% to 70% reduction in all symptom areas cited, and will probably experience more relief as the process of healing continues. This is certainly worth the investment of time and money. I am now able to walk without excruciating lower back pain, which was the main reason for seeking treatment.

Sincerely, – C. Susan S.

May 11, 2007

My doctor, in the course of performing a biannual physical examination, detected heart arrhythmias. One of the possible causes of this condition is nerve damage, revealed by stiff and painful neck muscles.

I went to Barone Spinal Care for the first time on January 25, 2007 and had my first adjustment on January 29, 2007. After Dr. Barone adjusted the cervical spine the neck muscle pain was greatly relieved and continues to improve. I have every expectation that this can also lessen the arrhythmias.

Respectfully, – Sam S.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I was suffering with acute Acid Reflux problem for the past several years. There was virtually nothing that I could eat without causing flatulence and bloating. I experienced stomach aches, acute constipation and weakness. I was tired of taking acid blockers and antacids.

My wife has a friend who’s husband had been to Dr. Barone & had amazingly relieved his similar problems after treatment at the clinic. I was very happy to hear about it. The very next day I took an appointment and visited the Barone Spinal Care practice. Dr. Barone examined me and said that my spine was out of alignment. I was x-rayed and my exact misalignment was estimated.

My treatment began. Dr. Barone put my spine back into alignment in next two three sittings and after that I was told the best treatment plan for me was to take an appointment once every week. After the restoration of spine’s alignment I have noticed an improvement in my condition. I have now much less frequent stomach aches, occurrence of constipation has reduced and I feel more energetic. I keep feeling better as the days pass by. I am optimistic that by the time I finish the treatment, I will be fully cured.

I would heartily recommend anyone suffering from a problem related to the spine mis-alignment, to visit Barone Spinal Care practice for effective care of spine.

– Narsingh S.

I’m 47 years old and enjoy golf. During a golf show last February, I was approached by a staff member of Barone Spinal Care. He pointed out that I appeared to be walking in an unbalanced manner. Testing confirmed showed that I was misaligned and afterwards I somewhat reluctantly agreed to a consultation. Initially, I was quite skeptical and even immediately after my first adjustment I still had doubts. However, within a matter of a few days I notice substantially less pain in my knee and lower back. Stiffness in those
areas after prolonged periods of sitting or driving was significantly reduced as
Since the beginning of my treatment in mid February, I’ve played golf several times(golf trip to Florida) and have noticed feeling in better balance and my scores have seemed to improve. I believe that this is no coincidence!

So far, I am quite pleased with the results and look forward to continued
improvement. – Akira S.

Dear Dr. Barone,

Being 71 years of age and having driven trucks across the country for 40 plus years, I’ve been diagnosed with lumbar degenerative disc disease with radicular neurophy.

For more years that I care to reveal I have had lower back pain, headaches, stiff neck with shoulder pains. I have taken pain pills, been on and off several chiropractors care, and used hot water heating pads – all of this only gave me temporary relief.

After hearing Dr. Barone’s radio program, I felt just perhaps this man could help relieve some of my pain, besides he offered a deal I couldn’t refuse. After all of the exams, x-rays and evaluation by Dr. Barone, I okayed that first painless treatment and felt almost immediate improvement. Since starting this very professional treatment (none of that snap, crackle and pop stuff), I have not taken one pain pill or used other means for relief. I am staying in alignment for longer and longer so I am improving. At my age I know I’ll never be 100%, but being 80% plus is fantastic!

Thank you, – R. F. R.


Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I came to Barone Clinic at age 58, suffering from fibromyalgia. I attribute it to taking antacid medication for over 2 years and my system was not absorbing nutrients the way it should. It happened about 2 years ago where my muscles and joints began aching and progressively worsened to the point where I could no longer exercise or lead the normal active life I always had. I had such severe fatigue that with just doing my daily routine of getting ready for work in the morning, I would have to lay down before leaving for work. I became very depressed over the situation. I went to a medical doctor for tests to rule out any serious diseases and was left with no hope of relieving my symptoms.

I started to investigate this condition and started to take vitamins and mineral supplements when I met one of Dr. Barone’s assosciates. I told him that I did not believe in chiropractic care but he convinced me to just come in to the office and see what they had to offer. I went and was treated professionally with kindness, care, concern, and painless adjustments. Someone finally believed I had a problem and gave me hope of recovering in full. The exams were very thorough and the doctors explained everything they did in detail. After the first treatment, I noticed the pain in my back started to go away and each week I started feeling more symptom free. It is still hard for me to believe that this painless treatment could improve my health, but I can’t deny that in 2 months versus 2 years of this condition, I am finally beginning to have hope of living a normal and active lifestyle again.

Sincerely, – Gayle R.

October 7, 2010

Dear Dr. Barone,

I’ve been suffering from shoulder joint, upper, mid, and lower back pains for almost 20 years.I believe shoulder joint ache is due to overuse by being an advocate volleyball player in my youth. My backache got worse with 2 pregnancies. In addition to these pains, I’ve developed intolerance to lactose, more gas resulting from different food intake, and lack of blood circulation – which resulted in reaching for outerwear even in the summer time. I’ve tried exercising, stretching, and massaging but the pain didn’t improve.

I thought about seeing a chiropractor for some time. One day, my husband and I were enjoying the Schaumburg festival and came across your booth. Your team member, Drew, explained to us that your practice didn’t practice traditional chiropractic method and that you focused on the source and not the problem itself. With my husband’s encouragement, I’ve decided to check it out.

The first appointment consisted of tests and explanations. On my second visit, we reviewed the test results and I got my first atlas bone adjustment. From patient’s perspective, it was very simple. All I had to do was lay on my side and the doctor gently moved the atlas bone. There was no pain involved. After this first adjustment, I noticed a huge difference in my posture. I felt like I was distributing my weight more to the left side and that I were standing straighter. That was because I’ve been putting more weight to my right leg for years. Growing up, I always thought that my right leg was longer than my left. Boy was I wrong.

After a year of continued treatment and daily exercise, my shoulder joint and back pains have been tremendously reduced. Not only that, but I was surprise to see that my tolerance to lactose has improved and I’m not as gassy anymore. In addition, I didn’t have to reach for my outerwear this summer. What a huge improvement! Thanks for your service and helping me to feel better. I’d highly recommend your practice to anyone who wants better health.

Sincerely, – Diana T.

August 7, 2008

Dear Dr. Barone,

Around October 16, 2007 I started having a real bad stiff neck and right shoulder pain. I couldn’t sit for long periods of time without experiencing intense pain. It was even difficult for me to stand. I also experienced some depression.

The pains were bad and I couldn’t sleep in peace. It was difficult for me to do things such as move around, take a shower, or get dressed. I was irritable and now the pain was shooting up my neck to head. It felt like a traveling headache.

Since I do not know of any good doctors and do not have health insurance, I put my situation before the Lord in prayer and asked Him to guide me to a good doctor or clinic where I could be helped. The following Saturday on my way to church I turned on the radio and to my amazement I heard a doctor talking about something similar to my condition, my symptoms, my pain and about a treatment that could help this situation. Every Saturday I would listen to the program and finally made an appointment. I can say I learned about Barone Spinal Care through divine guidance.

At the office I found that it was very friendly, tentative, professional, and very welcoming. They made me feel like family. All examinations and x-rays were done in a very professional and accurate manner.

The first adjustment brought results almost immediatelybut I did not notice until I left the office. Dr. Barone had asked me if I felt different; I had been in pain for so long that I didn’t realize there was a change till I was half-way home. I was happy that my pain was over and wanted to sing! But it wasn’t completely over yet. In the time between my first adjustment and the following appointment, I became out of alignment and the pain in my neck came back. I needed a few more adjustments and as time went by, I noticed my neck pain was less and less intense.

By June 2008 all of my pain in my neck and shoulder was gone. My tailbone pain was not completely gone but is much better! My depression has improved, and when it comes back it’s not around for long.

It took only three months for the healing to take place and I’m so grateful for it! I praise the Lord for Dr. Barone and his staff and ask that they be blessed abundantly in their mission of helping people with their physical suffering.

Sincerely, – Luz Q.

Dr. Barone Spinal Care, December 5, 2008

I first came to Dr. Barone upon referral by a friend who suggested that I might find relief from a number of chronic pains that I was complaining about. I have degenerative disc disease and a host of other arthritic conditions (bad knees, aching bones in my feet, hands and other joints) caused by constant battering of my body through athletic activities like cheer-leading, track & field, dance, aerobics, tennis… you-name-it!

My joint pain has escalated steadily for the last few years and I’ve added to my list of complaints: chronic neck pain, tight jaws, cracking joints and frequent headaches.

At about the same time I made my first visit to Barone Spinal Care. The staff at Barone Spinal Care has been terrific. All are attentive and seem genuinely concerned about patients. I was impressed on my first visit by the thoroughness of the evaluative examinations that were given and have remained impressed by the exacting approach that is employed with the technique.

After my first adjustment I felt light-headed…almost euphoric. That surprised me since I barely felt anything at all during the adjustment! I was mildly aware that the doctor was applying slight pressure to a spot behind my ear. I also noticed after the first adjustment that a headache I’d had for several days was gone.

Each week has been a little bit different for me. I don’t always feel light-headed after an adjustment and sometimes I am more aware of being adjusted than others! Sometimes I’ve actually already been in alignment and didn’t need an adjustment.

I’ve noticed a number of changes since starting treatment at Barone Spinal Care:

I am sleeping better.
My bowels have become more regulated.
I still have neck pain, but my jaws no longer feel tight nor do they crack and click.
My lower back seems to have a few issues that I didn’t notice before, but I’ve been told that’s due to the changes that my spine is going through.
I still experience some radiculopathy and numbness in my hands and legs, particularly if I’ve lain in one spot without moving for too long, but there is a significant improvement in my circulation overall.
I feel less tired than I used to.
I have not had palpitations in several months now.

I am committed to continue with Barone Spinal Care for the rest of the year to see what more we can accomplish together. I definitely feel encouraged and believe that coming to see Dr. Barone has made a difference for me. I would recommend them to anyone without reservation!

Dr. Barone,

When I first came into the office I was a mess. I had severe pain in my right shoulder, to the point where I couldn’t even move it. I had also been suffering with migraines that were severe to the point where I couldn’t get out of bed. I had also been experiencing the worst menstrual pain from the time I first got my period. At times I would curl up in the fetal position on my bed and cry in pain.

Since coming to see Dr. Barone, I can move my right shoulder with no pain at all, I no longer have migraines that keep me in bed and my menstrual pain is minimal. I am so grateful to have found Barone Spinal Care; the doctors have changed my life in such a huge way. I can do things I haven’t been able to do in a long time. Thank you so much to Barone Spinal Care!

Sincerely, – Michayla P.

Dearr Dr. Barone:

Twenty plus years of chronic painflowed through my body daily. Years and years of masking the problem with massage therapy, naprapaths, even chiropractors. Shots for pain, pills for pain, until finally, as the pain almost won, I was told about Dr. Barone.

After I saw him perform his treatment on my wife I was very skeptical. Witch Doctor? Fraud? Faith Healer? Well I can say in all honesty that before I let him perform his treatment on me I asked God to work a miracle through his hands and as of today I can say he is the REAL DEAL! A miracle was performed through his hands – he is so full of knowledge to care for our aches & pains! My pain have been reduced 95%. I will continue his treatment until I am 100% and that day will be very soon!!

Yours, – Paul B.

February 9th, 2009

Dear Barone Spinal Care Team,

I came in for a consultation around Thanksgiving 2008 with numerous nagging issues like sciatica in my right leg, neck stiffness, knots in my shoulders, tightness in my lower back, and tightness in my hamstrings and I an only 35 years old. Sleeping at night was also very uncomfortable.

I remember the pain I was in before coming to your office, it was not that great as to detract from my everyday life but now, after the alleviation of most of my ailments, I can safely say that I would not want to go back to that discomfort again.

After being under care for less than one month I had significant improvement in all of my muscle issues. I can now wake up and proceed to a workout without the long warm-up that was needed to loosen my muscle stiffness. My neck doesn’t crack or pop and is very loose. My sciatica doesn’t bother me anymore and my lower back isn’t in shambles when I wake up in the morning. Speaking of waking up I fall asleep almost immediately and can jump out of bed refreshed when the alarm clock goes off.

I am still shocked and bewildered that the speed of the exams and the gentleness of the corrections can lead to such marked improvements.I have been recommending Barone Spinal Care to a lot of my friends and family and would suggest that everyone should at least get a consultation.

Sincerely, – Amar P.

Dear Dr. Barone,

May 4,2007

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.

Dear Barone Spinal Care;

I have arthritis and lower back painwhich goes down my right side and leg. I also have hand and finger numbness sometimes.I have high blood pressure, a heart condition, colitis, bladder problems and esophagus problems all at the age of 87. Some of the pain started in my forties.

I heard about Barone Spinal Care through my granddaughter, she had trouble with her neck and after her first adjustment she could turn her head without pain. They treat everyone like family. Before my correction I had a lot of pain but now it’s bearable. I have trouble walking, but that is better. I can also stand in one place longer now.

Sincerely, – Norine D.

Dear Dr. Barone,

For so many years I looked for help in the wrong places. My health was not good, and I had pain all over my body. My symptoms were:

Neck Tension
Finger Numbness
Lower Back Pain
Hip Pain

I had heard about Barone Spinal Care and came to the office for my first visit in December. I have been under care for one month now and I can truly say that all of the above symptoms are less of a struggle now. I am already a person that can say it is good to be helped by the right place that can make such a difference in my life in such a short time. Imagine how I will be after a longer period of time!

Yours, – Cornelia M.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am so happy that I met you & started my treatment the following week at your clinic. I was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the clinic. WOW! It swept me off my feet. I still had to have some results though, so I began the treatments with some reservations. My reservations were because I haven’t found help for years from some of my ailments. I am 59 years old and for at least 36 years I have had itching and ringing in my left ear. I have visited doctors of all different types, but every one of them said everything in my ear was fine. After a few weeks of treatment at Barone Spinal Care, I was asked about the ringing in my ear, I was startled. How could I forget that constant irritating ringing in my ear? But I had forgotten that annoyance. It was gone! My ear continually itched and I sometimes had vertigo. I’ve had treatments now for two months at your clinic and the ringing and vertigo are completely gone. The itching is very minor.

I’ve also had mild to severe heart palpitations for a couple of years, but since starting treatment, I’ve had no palpitations. I always had the palpitations a few times a week but now for two months I’ve had no palpitations at all!

My worst problem was walking and getting up from a chair. Both were extremely painful for me. My feet hurt so badly as did my hip joints. Now I have rejoined my friends walking in the park. I can now take my granddaughter to the park. I can get up from chairs without wincing or crying out in pain. I definitely have more energy!Thank you so much for your clinic.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am so happy I came into your office for treatment. I am a 43 year old woman who has been exercising regularly for almost 10 years. Unfortunately, I have been in pain for most of that time. I had severe hip pain, neck pain and shoulder pain along with occasional low back pain. In addition I had been suffereing from migrane headaches, which were quite debilitating. I had been to my regular physician as well as several “regular” chiropractors. I felt that I would just have to live with the pain and that I was causing it myself by working out too hard.

I was introduced to you by my personal trainer. I thought it couldn’t hurt to come in and see what Upper Cervical Chiropractic was all about. Nothing else had worked so I didn’t have anything to lose. I have only been in treatment for a couple of months and I cannot believe the difference in my body! I definitely have much less pain in my hips and shoulders. I can actually turn my head completely from side to side with no pain or stiffness. I am sleeping better and have more energy than I have had in a very long time. My workout seem to be more effective now as well.

I admit that I was very skeptical when I first came in and even after my first adjustment. It was like nothing else I have ever experienced. I immediately felt “lighter” in my hips. I have been holding my adjustments for a few weeks now and know that I am slowly getting healthier with each passing day. I am very thankful to you and your staff. I know with the continued treatment I will feel better and eventually be pain-free. Thank you to you and your staff for everything that you have done for me.

Sincerely, – Marnie M.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am 65 years old and was experiencing pain in my right hip and I was unable to walk very well. I had reoccurring pains for about 4 years. I heard about Dr. Barone on the radio and decided to come in and see him. Dr. Barone aligned my upper cervical spine and the hip pain went away after the first adjustment. My problems with constipation have also greatly improved. I have noticed that after my first adjustment I seem to have more energy to walk and do my daily activities.

Sincerely, – Douglas M.

Dear Barone Spinal Care;

For two years I have been suffering with lower back pain (arthritis of the spine). Playing golf and tennis was not an option because of these complications.

I’ve spent years believing chiropractic wouldn’t help me & was fearful of trying it. But I met two of the Barone Spinal Care team, and after hearing how they explained the gentleness of Upper Cervical Chiropractic, I decided to get an appointment scheduled.

Fortunately after my first treatment my back felt great! I’m hoping my body continues to heal as I go for future visits at Barone Spinal Care.

Barone Spinal Care has been an excellent experience for me. Their professional demeanor is top notch. The necessary exams were like a walk through the park, I’ve had no pain at all with my adjustments, and I’m looking forward to a bright and happy future, golf and tennis included. My fear of chiropractic has been completely erased.

God Bless and thank you to all of you, – Paul M.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I came to you after I herniated L4-5 disc in my lower back.Being only 32 years old, and suffering from some extreme low back pain that radiated into my left buttockfor two weeks, I was recommended to you by my mother, Kathy Marston, who knows you personally. The pain caused me to lose time from work, sleep and stop most of all my normal daily activities. Before seeing you I was recommended to see a pain specialist for steroid injections or possibly even surgery. After my mother’s recommendation, and the trust the she has for you, I felt comfortable and very quickly trusted you and your treatment.

After the very first examination and adjustment, there was a great difference in the pain. In fact, the very next day I was pain free for the first time for more than 6 hours without any medication. I felt that I was not leaning or crooked in my posture as well after the first adjustment. After only one month of treatment the pain and discomfort had nearly completely diminished. Presently I am able to play softball, 4 games a week, when before I could not even touch my toes. The daily amounts of pain have completely disappeared and I am leading the life I had previous to this injury.

Thank you, – Chris M.

January 6, 2006

Dear Dr. Barone:

I am twenty four years old and have been dancing for twenty years. For about eight to ten years I have suffered from chronic knee and back pain. Being a dancer, you learn to live with certain body aches and pains, but by the time I was eighteen it got to be too much for me. I quit dancing in the hope of just taking a year off and well…it’s now going on six years since I stopped.

Over the past six years I’ve gone to chiropractors whose adjustments only helped me temporarily. I’ve tried doing yoga to help strengthen my core muscles and I’ve also tried just popping Advils, but nothing seemed to make the pain stay away. In addition to my knee and back pain, a list of ailments began to build in the past few years. I was always sick, my neck was always tight and achy, my head was always foggy with a lot of pressure over my eyes, I felt like I was in a daze twenty four hours a day, and I was chronically fatigued.

Then I came to Barone Spinal Care, and after sitting up from my first adjustment I could feel the pressure release in my head and neck, I felt like I could see clearer and I could breathe deeply again. I didn’t realize how shallow I had been breathing because of the pain in my back until the pain was lifted. My results were absolutely amazing, never has anything ever helped to relieve my pain so immediately and effectively.

I can’t thank the Doctors at Barone Spinal Care enough for helping me to live a fuller life. Since I started seeing Dr. Barone I have had less back pain, less neck pain, less sinus pressure, less hip pain, less knee pain and more energy. I can breathe deeper and feel healthier, I walk straighter (literally!), I think clearer, and my mood is sunnier. I believe that my progress will continue moving upwards and soon I will be able to dance my way through a pain free life. Thank you!

Gratefully, – Jessica M.

Dear Barone Spinal Care:

I would like to relate what my experience is since starting my Upper Cervical Chiropractic care. I am a long time, strenuous hiker, often over rough terrain and ice. I went to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back out in January.

I had been experiencing soreness in my left hip after a four or five hour hike. After beginning care, this soreness has pretty much faded in just this first month of treatment! I have also noticed some subtle changes in other areas. I sleep more soundly and for longer periods of time. The muscles in my back do not tire and get sore the way they use to. I think my balance seems more secure and it gives me feeling of “well being.”

Sincerely, – John M.

September 22nd, 2007

Dr. Barone,

I have been doing treatments for about 2 months with your staff. I have noticed a remarkable improvement with the ringing of my ears, intermittent leg cramps, constipation, high blood pressure and energy. I seem to even think better.There is definitely a difference of better health by being in alignment with the Barone Spinal Care treatments.

Regards, – Anthony Joseph L.


I am 72 years old & I’ve been suffering from lower back pain since I was 13 years old, and had no idea why. I had severe back pain with sciatica during all three of my pregnancies. I have gone to chiropractors regularly for the past 35 years and also tried massage therapy for a while. About 3 years ago the pain got much worse and I started to limp. I had pain on the whole right side of my body including my neck, shoulder, upper back, lower back, groin, leg, knee and ankle. My interaction with my grandkids became severely limited

I was recommended to see Dr. Barone for my problems. I now have been getting adjusted from Dr. Barone for 1 month. The adjustment is very gentle and only takes a minute.I have no more shoulder pain and no upper back pain. I have less hip, knee, leg, and ankle pain. And to top it off I recently went to Lincoln Park Zoo with my grandson!

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

Due to my job, the last couple of years my posture got lazier & I started feeling tightness and slight pain across my shoulders, tightness in my lower back, and uncomfortableness in my legs. I was 43 years old at the time so after meeting the doctors from Barone Spinal Care, I started treatment right away. A year later I can say that the team at Dr. Barone’s office has helped me feel free of the pain and discomfort that I had before I started treatment. They also taught me what things to look out for to avoid problems in the future.

I look forward to going to Barone Spinal Care. They have very friendly staff that do everything possible to make my visit pleasant.

Thank you for helping me improve my overall mental and physical health.

Sincerely, – Andy L.

June 28, 2007

When I walked into the Barone Spinal Care Center, it was with some skepticism as I have undergone chiropractic adjustments many times in the past, without success. I have been suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia, or so I was told, for more than 10 years. Also, I have had excruciating pain in my left knee for the past 40 years, since I was 18 years old. These health challenges adversely affected the quality of my life in many areas. I couldn’t walk or stand for extended periods of time. As a result of this forced inactivity I gained a great deal of weight and experienced difficult in performing the duties of my job. To put it mildly, I was miserable.

To my great amazement I experienced tremendous relief and an overwhelming sense of “lightness”, a completely relaxed feeling after the very first adjustment. The results have been nothing short of miraculous! I am now virtually pain-free so I can walk normally, I am losing weight, and overall my mood is very upbeat. In short, I feel fantastic.

I tell everyone I know about Upper Cervical Chiropractic. It provides fast, painless relief instantly, and is so gentle you are unaware of the transformation taking place in your spine and neck, it is truly life-changing because it allows you to do those things you previously were unable to do.

I can’t thank Dr. Barone enough for the gift of restored health he has given back to me.

May 14, 2008

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. – Maureen L.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

Since my early 20’s I have felt pain everyday. I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis and scoliosis. I tried massage, painkillers and traditional chiropractic to help relieve the pain. Sometimes these treatments helped me, and other times they didn’t help at all.

Around the time that I turned 40, I could hardly walk. Taking a step could bring tears to my eyes. I began to have difficulty raising my arm and experienced a pulling pain down my leg.

At 51 years of age, I came to Barone Spinal Care with: high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, scoliosis, fatigue, nervousness, irritability, sinus problems, sleep disorders, tight muscles, cold feet, and I was crying a lot. I found out about Barone Spinal Care while driving in my car and listening to WYLL on a Saturday. When I heard Dr. Barone list a number of symptoms that they help people with I decided to make an appointment. I had been praying for help, and I believe God lead me to this office.

The Barone Spinal Care staff was friendly and they had warm smiles. I still don’t know how the correction works, but the tension in my upper and lower back was gone. I’m sleeping much better and crying less often. I can’t believe how much it has improved my mood. My blood pressure is also much lower.

I can’t imagine what my life would be like in 5 years if I hadn’t called Barone Spinal Care that day. I want to thank the doctors and staff for doing a great job. I believe that I will continue to progress and will soon be able to do a lot of things that I previously was unable to do.

Gratefully, – Vera L.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am writing to share my personal experience with Barone Spinal Care. I am 37 yrs. old and have suffered with headaches and neck pain for 7-10yrs.I decided to try Barone Spinal Care because I was not satisfied with the results I was getting with my chiropractor; I felt I was not receiving long-term benefits at this point in my life.

I have been very pleased with the care I receive as Dr. Barone’s patient. The treatments are painless and simple. I noticed results almost immediately and began feeling better every day. Having my spine correctly aligned has helped me with many other physical ailments too. I have considerably less chest tightness, knee pain, and irritability now!

I look forward to the days ahead as I walk the road to recovery. I am so glad I tried Barone Spinal Care.

Sincerely, – Eileen K.


Dear Dr. Barone,

I was suffering with a stiff neck, low back pain, and a tingling sensation in my fingers for the past 20 years. All these things made me very uncomfortable so I tried treating the pain on my own by using ointments, but there was no improvement. Then I heard you on WYLL, the radio station, and was very interested by what you had to say.

My experience here has been great. The Doctors give very detailed explanations. The amazing part is that I didn’t feel a thing. There was no popping, no cracking, no pain, no nothing. Changes I noticed immediately after the correction was less stiffness in the neck, fewer headaches, less dizziness, less pins and needles, less hip pains, less low back pain, and less knee pains.

My suffering has improved tremendously because of this treatment and I am very thankful to Dr. Barone and his staff for improving my life.

Sincerely, – Peter K.


Dear Dr. Barone,

I felt crabby, tired, angry, and constantly had mood swings before coming to see you. I had no energy and could only do a limited number of things because of the pain. Before I came to Barone Spinal Care, I went to a chiropractor for 2 years, and also tried many different forms of pain relief such as acupuncture, creams, pills, herbal teas and patches for migraines and back pain. Unfortunately nothing worked. One day I heard about Barone Spinal care when I was listening to the radio station WYLL. My husband thought I should give it a try. What harm could it do?

My experience here has been extremely pleasant. The staff is very friendly, and they make me feel special. The exams are very thorough and the doctors explain everything in great detail. The changes that I noticed immediately after the correction were no pain, no stiffness, more energy, and most importantly no back pain. I find myself thinking more clearly, and feeling light headed.

Before coming here, I could not sleep because I would have a very heavy feeling in my head which caused major headaches all night long. After treatment, my life improved drastically in that I was actually able to get a good night sleep all night without waking up. When I did wake up, I felt rested and more energetic.

I think coming to Barone Spinal Care was a very wise decision and I want to thank Dr. Barone and his staff for everything they have done for me.

Sincerely, – Darina K.


Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I’m 46 & have suffered from lower back pain since I was about 13. In the last 14 years the pain has become chronic. I have been hospitalized with 2 herniated discs & was diagnosed with Sciatica. A friend & co-worker who is also under the care of Barone Spinal Care convinced me to come in. From the time I walked into the office I was treated as if I was a valued member of a family. So before anything was done I was more than half convinced to see what they could do for me. At this point in time along with the chronic back pain I was suffering from severe migraines, acid reflux, fatigue & pain in my neck, shoulders & upper arms.

After my initial evaluation I spoke with Dr. Barone who went over my proposed treatment plan & the changes that could possible occur. I had my first adjustment 5 weeks ago. Since that time I have not had any migraines. My acid reflux has decreased greatly. I have gone from taking medication 3 times a day for pain maintenance to 2 or 3 times a week. I have not had any problems with shooting pains in my legs from the sciatica. My blood pressure has been more stable & I find I have more energy. The pain in my neck, shoulders & upper arms has decreased.

It’s amazing how exciting it can be to just be able to bend over to tie your shoes without being in pain. It’s a feeling I didn’t think I would ever be able to experience again. And to think all of this has occurred in just over a month! -LaVerne K.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

My son went to Barone Spinal Care in a lot of pain and left with a smile. After that he introduced me to Barone Spinal Care and it has really changed my outlook on life.

I’m 71 years old and pretty much had accepted all the aches and pains that come with age, (Even though I knew better!)

I’m so glad I didn’t have my lower back operated on. After the first treatment at your office, I have had no pain in my lower back what so ever. Speaking of the treatment, they are so gentle with no twisting or cracking of the bones.

I am now able to walk longer distances and not even realize it! I no longer have pressure headaches and vertigo. The rest of my aches are gradually going away.

On top of that, the staff are very friendly and professional. And with the quiet, gentle atmosphereyou’ll leave feeling rested and in a good frame of mind.

Trust me… if you try it you’ll love it! – Charleen K.

Dear Dr. Barone,

Before visiting your office I was suffering from:

– blurring vision

– clenching of my jaw

– acid reflux

– and varying tenderness to pain in my right knee

After a few months of treatment the acid reflux disappeared. It is interesting to note that my eating habits had not changed. The other symptoms have taken approximately 5 months to improve.

In addition to the above benefits I also feel better in my workouts as a powerlifter/bodybuilder. Since I’m 50 years old I really appreciate the absence of additional aches and pains.

While I have always used supplements and chiropractic it took Upper Cervical Chiropractic treatment to improve my health!

Sincerely, – Jim B.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am 43 yrs. oldand have suffered with chronic back pain for most of my life, this was due to being struck by a car as a child.

I had back surgery in May of 2002 and have been diagnosed with degenerative disc diseaseand fibromyalgia. These, being the most chronic of my health conditions. I have been to several pain clinics, been on numerous pain medications, have had several epidurals, cortisteriod joint injections, physical therapy and resulted in little or no pain relief.

I felt like my body was falling apart! I’ve been coming to Barone Spinal Care for 3 months now & I have less muscle pain, overall sense of wellness, and no longer use any pain medication. I am not pain free yet but I know I still an have a long way to go but I feel like I’m getting my life back, I’m alive again! I feel more alive than I have been in the past 4 years and I’d also like to mention for 30 years I’ve had to take allergy medicine for seasonal allergies & since starting care, I haven’t had any of those issues at all!

Sincerely, – Kathy I.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I was suffering with slight joint pain for 5 years. I tried treatments such as wearing orthotic inserts but they didn’t work. Then, my sister, who is a Physical Therapist, informed me about Barone Spinal Care. My experience with Barone Spinal Care has been exceptional. I was welcomed from the beginning and the staff was extremely friendly. The exams were fairly thorough, and I could not feel the correction at all. My joint pain suffering has improved slightly, which I will continue to monitor over the winter months. I would like to thank Dr. Barone and his staff for all they have done.

Sincerely, – Thomas I.

Dr. Barone:

I have a long history of neck and shoulder pain, stemming from a traumatic head injury as a child. In my early 30’s I had a radical diskectomy at cervical disks 4/5 to correct a ruptured disk that created daily excruciating migraines, shoulder pain and shooting pain down my right arm. About 2 years after the surgery I began to get migraines again. I knew the symptoms… blinding pain behind my left eye, pain in my right shoulder, shooting pain down my arm.The thought of having to go through surgery again frightened me and I was in denial about my condition. I endured the pain for 2 years before I was evaluated by Dr. Barone.

I started seeing Dr. Barone a little over 2 months ago. I understood the concept of NUCCA practices, but assumed that chiropractic correction should be a dramatic adjustment to be healing. Also – I was more than wary of chiropractic practice because I had been hurt by having my back adjusted years ago and also because my surgeon and specifically warned me against chiropratic.

However, 3 people I knew had gone to see Dr. Barone with amazing results – what did I have to lose???

After my first visit, I felt off balance. Not in a bad way, just odd. After a month of visits, about twice a week, I began to discern “bad days” versus “good days”. This meant I was having good days!!! The irony is that the good days snuck up on me!! I took them fro granted because the pain in my neck wasn’t existing on a daily basis.

Through the help of Barone Spinal Care and NUCCA practice I do not need to consider additional disk fusions! What’s done is done, I cannot turn back time and see Dr. Barone before my first surgery but I can definitely do something about the future. I do not need to deny myself a pain-free life. I can look forward and not fear!!

With kind regards, – Connie H.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I am 78 year old and I have been suffering from sciatic pain in my left leg since 2005. I had seen an orthopedic surgeon who offered me two choices, one was to try epidurals at a pain clinic or surgery. I tried the first epidural with no relief, then I decided to go with his second option which was to have back surgery. My back surgery took place on February 2, 2006. Following the back surgery, I was pain free for two months, I thought I was “home free.” However, equally severe pain returned and the surgeon said it was the nerves “waking up” and it would either get better, or I’d have to live with it.

In early November I decided to try your methods for treatment; as I had tried everything else. To this date, I have had three adjustments, all painless, and although I have a long way to go I have noticed significant improvements in my health. The leg pain I was previously experiencing is far less painful than it was before. I have noticed other subtle improvements in body functionsthat plagued me for years. I am truly looking forward to the rest of my treatments and the fine care I receive from you and the Barone Spinal Care staff.

It is a pleasure to come to the office, everyone is friendly, helpful, and welcoming. I am always greeted with a “good morning” and a smile. Thank you so much!

Sincerely, – Patricia G.

Dear Dr. Barone:

I have been suffering with neck problemsfor many years. An instructor at the Buehler YMCA told me about Dr. Barone and the wonderful things he and his staff have accomplished. I suffered from loss of range of motion, pain in moving my neck, finger numbness, low back pain, hip pain, and pain in my feet. I have tried several chiropractors and they did not help. In fact, many times the pain was worse. I have had physical therapy many times and still suffered from pain and loss of motion.

I finally went to an orthopedic surgeon and after extensive testing, the surgical procedure recommended was an anterior cervical disectomy and fusion from C-5 through C-7. Another option was a cervical epidural steroid injection. Neither of these options were for me. In fact it scared me.

When I talked to Mary, the instructor at the Y, I asked her for Dr. Barone’s phone number. I started treatment with Dr. Barone in January of 2007 and so far I have been, for the most part, pain free.

Sincerely, – Theresa G.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am 48 years old and for more than twenty years I was suffering with numbness in my toes, tingling and pain in my legs, low back pain, neck and shoulder pain, had difficulties raising and holding up my left hand, ringing in my ears, jaw stiffness, pain behind my ears, headaches, asthma, blurry vision, and acid reflux. My left leg was shorter and I had popping sounds in my left hip when I tried to accommodate my left leg into a painless and comfortable position. I was agonizing to sit on a chair for a long time. My left leg would get totally numb and start tingling, and had cramps. Because of all that, I was easily irritated and got tired fast. I would wake up in the middle of the night because of the strong pain in my legs, low back pain, and cramps in my legs.

After the very first correction, immediately, I felt slight dizziness and airflow in my nose, forehead and chest. My vision became clearer,I could not believe it! This was the first time after more than 20 years, I was filled with joy!! I praised God and the staff at Barone Spinal Care.

Finally, I was able to sleep the first night without feeling pain in my body without taking any medication. It took me about seven months after my first correction for me to forget about my acid reflux, pain behind my ears, and pain between shoulders. I can sit for hours, concentrate on my work, and do not get tired quickly. I am able to hold conversations with my friends and children with out the pain getting in the way. I wish I could have had this quality of life when my children were growing up. But I praise God for allowing me to find Barone Spinal Care. – Nadia E.

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.

– Andrew E.

Dear Dr. Barone,

As a Fibromyalgia patient for many years, I have been on various medications over the years. I have had acupuncture, biofeedback, physical therapy and massage therapy. Although some of the treatments made me more comfortable, they were very short-term “fixes.” During this time, even with drugs, sleep was very infrequent and very disturbed. Earlier this year I weaned myself off of all medication.

Dr. Barone was introduced to my life in what I believe was a miraculous way. Although I was skeptical, I felt I needed to find out what NUCCA was all about. The very first night of my first adjustment, I slept like I don’t ever remember sleeping. The next day I called in sick to work so that I could continue this most refreshing sleep. Since starting treatments, I have slept all night through without interruption AND woke up refreshed. My discomfort was diminished considerably and I felt like heavy weights were lifted from my body.

Although I’ve only been seeing Dr. Barone for a month or so, I recommended my husband reap the benefit of NUCCA. He is currently a patient and has also experienced a positive difference in his health.

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,

On June 16th, 2008 I started treatment with you for lower back pain, a dropped foot, neck pains and several other ailments. You were recommended by one of the trainers at Friendship Village, who also is a patient at Barone Spinal Care, and my husband heard you speak there as well. Before I started, when anyone would mention chiropractic care, I felt wary. Since then I have changed my mind!

After several treatments my lower back pains have disappeared, my foot has more feeling, I can walk without falling, the numbness in my fingers is gone and I have more energy!

I know I have more adjustments to come but knowing that gives me a better outlook on the future!

Yours truly, – Valerie D.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am writing this letter to express my appreciation for all you have done for me. I came to you with many problems, which medical doctors tried to treat without any success. As you probably remember I was a mess – A nervous stomach, headaches, dizziness, ringing in my ears, neck pain, numbness in my left leg and a hip that was beginning to bother me. I was generally tired and frustrated most of the time! I was resigning myself to the fact that this is the way I will live the rest of my life.

Dr. Barone you have changed my life! After you did the first NUCCA treatment, immediately my body started to heal, what a relief it was. I can’t begin to tell you what NUCCA has meant to me.

You are a blessing to me, my family and many friends who also have been given a new lease on life because of you and the NUCCA treatment. Thank you.

God Bless You, – Sharon D.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I’m writing to tell you how thrilled I have been to being introduced to your NUCCA procedure.

When I came to you a little over a year ago I was suffering from many different kinds of problems, and my shoulder was one of the worst – it was totally locked up. The highest I could raise my arm was level with my shoulder. After the first treatment by the time I got to the car I could scratch the top of my head.

I suffered about 40 years with lower back pain, which is GONE GONE GONE. Had a bad sciatic nerve problem about as long and THAT is GONE also. I had cramps in both legs almost all the time, mostly at night, but they are GONE.

For about two years I suffered from fatigue, that is also GONE. I lost my ability to smell or taste about ten years ago and now my smell and taste are starting to come back.I thank God for giving you the expertise and ability to make it possible for me to regain my health.

Thank You, – Ron D.

Dear Barone Spinal Care,

I am currently 27 years old & in the past 20 years, I have had many chronic injuries due to running that have disrupted my life. I have dealt with shin splints, hip tension and an extremely sore back and upper shoulders to name a few.

I found Barone Spinal Carel at an event in my community where they did an initial test on my back and found an imbalance in my nerve pathways. I wasn’t surprised at this result and decided to schedule a consultation with them.

As I got into the consultation, I got the feeling that this may be the treatment of choice for me. I felt that the treatment protocol was explained to me thoroughly and it made sense. I found that the chronic fatigue, irritability, anxiety, heart palpitations and constipation I had dealt with since before high school may be related to the nerves being compressed by a misaligned spine.

After the first painless adjustment, I couldn’t believe the way I felt! For the first time I did not want to slouch over. I felt so tall and awake! I had never felt this aligned in my whole life. Within a few days of my first adjustment I received a thorough letter in the mail explaining everything about my condition and the plan for me. I found that the reason my spine had been misaligned was because it had been in a stressed and locked position for about 25 years! The twisting of my spine and pelvis showed one hip lower than the other, which caused my body to be out of its ideal vertical position and forced more weight to be carried on one side of the body.

Since having over a month of adjustments, I have had much more energy, less pain and tension in the right side of my back, less heart palpitations, less constipation, and less irritability and anxiety. I am still able to work out as I was before as well as lead my busy life. I still have a long way to go, but these quick office visits have changed my life! The team at Barone Spinal Care has such a positive outlook on life, as well as caring, genuine personalities that are contagious. Their open office space is very comfortable and you barely ever have to wait for a treatment. Thanks so much to Barone Spinal Care for helping me make these positive changes in my life!

Sincerely, – Kathryn C.

Dear Barone Spinal Care, October 23, 2008

I am 23 years old and have been suffering with many symptoms since I can remember. I wasdiagnosed with scoliosis in the 3rdgrade and went to several chiropractors that did nothing for me. I would have severe migrainesa couple times a week that wouldn’t allow me to work or go to school. I was on Imitrex 200mg that would barely relieve the pain. It was excruciating! Some other symptoms I had included constant neck pain, constant headaches, horrible allergies in the Spring and Fall, very painful acid reflux that caused me to almost throw up at times, low back pain, grinding of my teeth, leg cramps at night, knee pain whenever I stood, walked or worked out for over 5 minutes at a time, and tingling in my feet that would occur every night for hours on end. On top of these symptoms I suffered from severe depression and anxietysince I was a junior in high school. I was also diagnosed with adult ADHD when I was a senior in high school. All of these issues we so overwhelming at my age and I had no hope. I thought, if I’m this bad at this age I wonder how I’ll be in 20 years!

In the spring of 2008 I started care at Barone Spinal Care. After everything I had heard I was so excited to start and hopefully get some relief! After the first few adjustments I was skeptical because I got very nauseous and sick. But on the other hand, I was immediately walking straighter, my hips were more level, and my posture was better than ever!My parents saw me after the first adjustment and were amazed! Those aren’t the only things that improved! I have fewer headaches, no migraines, no more grinding of the teeth, less neck pain, hardly any acid reflux, no low back pain, no leg cramps, and less tingling in the feet. It is fall and I haven’t had any allergies! Also, I am on NO more medication! My depression is gone and I don’t have any anxiety! Those are the two things I thought I would never get rid of!

I am so grateful for all of the doctors at Barone Spinal Care! I am so amazed at how they have helped me and how they continue to help others! It truly is a blessing! Thank you so much and God bless!

Dear Dr. Barone and patients,

I have been suffering with low back pain and severe sciatic nerve pain for at least 10 years. I tried a traditional chiropractor about 10 years ago, who adjusted me by “cracking” my spine and even thought it seemed to help for a while, I got so scared from the “cracking” and I would tense up so badly that the doctor would tell me to relax, as he couldn’t adjust me because I got so rigid.

I “lived” on painkillers and arthritis drugs. I had an MRI, spinal X-rays, shoe orthotics, but the pain continued. Being over-weight didn’t help either. I was seriously considering surgery because I couldn’t stand living with this continual pain any longer.

Then one Saturday about 9 months ago, I heard Dr. Barone’s radio show on WYLL AM 1160. I was intrigued by this NUCCA treatment. It also sounded too good to be true, but I decided to call and make an appointment.

After the very first treatment I knew something had happened because I felt a little lighter in a very nice way. I absolutely could not believe my sciatic nerve pain was practically gone and certainly bearable even with it bothered me occasionally.

I might mention that even though my back problems brought me to Barone Spinal Care, my entire body feels better – less achy and stiff. I have now decided that when my self-imposed year “trial” is over, I will continue coming here and look forward to getting older without so much pain.

I truly don’t believe there is anyone who was more skeptical about this simple treatment than I was, but desperation brought me to Barone Spinal Care. I am no longer a skeptic!I only know it has worked for me and I wanted to tell anyone who is “on the fence” whether to try NUCCA or not to give it a try. I hope it works as well for whatever problem you come where with as it has for me.

Cordially, – Kathy C.

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 Barone Spinal Care;

When I came to Barone Spinal Care, I had headaches almost everyday and painful spasms in my neck and back muscles. Over the course of a few months of treatment, I have noticed a drastic improvement in the way I feel physically and emotionally. My headaches are less and the spasms in my neck and back are completely gone. One of the most amazing improvements was my ability to relax and sleep at night.Before coming to Barone Spinal Care I had terrible insomnia and could not sleep because of my racing thoughts. The day of my very first adjustment I was able to sleep without waking up. Every day since then I have gotten “quality sleep”. I don’t feel anymore tension in my back and I have so much energy. I have lost 15 pounds and I feel a lot more optimistic about my total health.

Yours sincerely, – Karen C.

September 22, 2005

Dear Dr. Barone:

You have changed my life! I became debilitated from chronic pain that I was having in my neck, shoulders and arms for almost 2 years. I tried so many different procedures to eliminate this horrible pain that I had every day. Nothing worked for me.

I was going to have three vertebrae in my neck fused together this September, 2005. I was told about Dr. Barone by a friend who had gotten wonderful results with her back issues. My husband and I made an appointment knowing I had nothing to lose. We saw Dr. Barone mid July, and ever since I have gotten my life back at 58 years old!

I no longer have chronic pain anywhere and I have my energy back. I have never felt better!! I was also surprised to realize that the hand braces I was wearing all the time for degenerative joint disease in my thumbs, started to be less painful, so I took off the braces about two weeks ago. I haven’t needed to put them on since.

I am so happy not to be taking pain killers and sleep aids any longer. Dr. Barone has changed my life physically with the Upper Cervical procedure, and I hold him responsible for the smile I have on my face everyday!

I am so blessed and grateful that I made the best decision for my life, and that is to see Dr. Barone.

Yours, – Carol B.

Dear Barone Spinal Care Team,

I came to you two months ago with a host of problems that I had been struggling with for the past 5 years, i.e. headaches, backaches, digestion problems, anxiety, insomnia and the worst of all was the sense of hopelessness that results from longstanding pain and discomfort. I was exhausted.

I had sought and tried everything from traditional to alternative medicine. All helped to some degree but I couldn’t understand that with all I was doing and with all of the money I was spending that I just couldn’t seem to reclaim my former self.

It seemed to be just “normal” to have a neck ache, to feel the effects of stress on my body & to live uncomfortably. That is, until I came for my first appointment at your office.

I am now virtually headache and backache free. My digestion is near normal. I am clearly benefiting from the good foods whose natural healing properties were partially lost to me. I have just recently begun to experience some periods of a deeper more restful sleep. I am more flexible. The crowning improvement is the return of hope and more than just glimpses of my former dynamic self.

I marvel at the simple effectiveness of this type of treatment and am mystified why it is not more well known when it has such a powerful healing impact. I am grateful that I made that call two months ago. I have been given an opportunity to live my life anew with prospects of a brighter and happier future. I cannot wait to see what healing unfolds in the months to come.

God bless, – Bess B.

Dear Barone Spinal Care Team,

I have suffered for 46 years with upper and lower back pain. Also have carpel tunnel which has caused intense pain. For the last several years I have had numb areas at various points of my body. Sometimes I just hurt all over and my sense of well being had dropped to near non existence. The slightest exertion became overwhelming.

Then on March 22, 2006 sciatica hit me like a ton of bricks. I could not sit, lay or stand comfortably. I was beside myself with horrific pain and anxiety. My doctor referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, who ordered an MRI and lower back X-rays. The findings were he told me that I had 3 bad discs, some arthritis and he could not see what was causing the sciatica. His options were spinal injections or surgery which did not appeal to me at all!

Then on April 18, 2006, Trigeminal neuralgia struck. So long story short, that’s when my daughter called and made an appointment for me to come in an see you. Upon my first visit I was calmed by the atmosphere of comfort, caring and hope.

So in just 4 weeks my trigeminal neuralgia is GONE, my sciatica is 95% better and I feel better than I have felt in well over a year. My general sense of well being has improved tremendously. And I am confident it will continue to do so because of your expertise. God has truly blessed you.

I am eternally grateful that our paths crossed on this journey of life!

Sincerely and Gratefully, – Annette B.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I appreciate the wonderful care I have gotten at Barone Spinal Care since becoming a patient earlier this year.

As you know, apart from some occasional headaches, I did not come with a long list of health problems. In my case, I mostly wanted to enjoy the benefits of performing at my maximum with my Atlas in alignment.

Since beginning treatment, there has been a noticeable decrease in my headaches, but most striking is the fact that neck pain I have experienced for the last 20 years when turning my head far to the left and right, has now completely disappeared! I had experienced this neck pain for so long I thought it was normal! It was not until having my Atlas aligned under your care that I realized it was not normal, but was the result of being misaligned.

Since coming to Barone Spinal Care, I can say I feel as good as I have in years and look forward to seeing continued improvement as my body heals from years of being out of alignment.

I have taken the opportunity to tell others about Barone Spinal Care and will continue to do it in hopes of pointing other people in your direction. Thanks to you and your great staff!

Warmly, – David B.

Dear Dr. Barone and Staff,

I have been suffering from severe low back pain for the last 5years. I used to play football and the rough play did its toll on my body. I had a devastating knee injury causing one leg to be stronger than the other. This contributed to my body being off balance and back pain. I was unable to stand for long periods of time and to bend down and tie my shoe seemed impossible at age 24. I had never sought treatment for this pain until my dad and brother came to your office. As my brother’s pain began to go away I knew that I needed to come in for a consult.

From the first correction I felt even and straighter. Over the next 6 weeks I have hadless low back pain, less headaches, less neck pain, I am walking straighter and my TMJ pain is gone. Thank you Barone Spinal care for being accurate with my care but also welcoming me into the office and making me feel comfortable.

Frank B.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I came to your practice after I was in a car accident in October 2003. My family doctor, Dr. Bruce Bell, recommended that I have a consultation with you after I sprained my neck and back.

I came to the office that day and met with you. You were very professional. You asked many questions about my medical history. I told you about my legs, my hips, and my inability to stand on my legs for any length of time. I also felt that I was moving like I was much older that I was in reality. After the consultation, I decided to go with X-rays and the first treatment. Almost immediately I could walk without the limp. My legs were the same length after the adjustment. I have been coming twice a week since mid-November and my pain has really decreased. You said it will take time for me to become pain-free and now I am starting to see that happen.

I am so grateful that I came to your office for that consultation. It has changed my life. My husband and son are also glad that they have started treatment with you.

Thank you so much for helping me get back on the road to recovery. Sincerely, – Cheryl B.

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!

– Tela B.

March 2, 2008

Dear Dr. Barone,

I am 75 years old and have been suffering from lower back pain on my left side. I’m not sure how or when the pain started but I have suffered for several years and it has become worse over the last five to six years. The pain has interfered with normal daily activities such as anything that required bending at the waist, even slightly. The pain would be so bad that I would have to stop what I was doing and sit down and rest. This made me avoid any activity that would result in back pain. It had an adverse effect on every aspect of my life.

Before I came to Barone Spinal Care I did try another chiropractor. When I heard about Barone Spinal Care & the very interesting technique you use, I had to see for myself what this treatment was all about.

My experience has been excellent! I could not expect to be treated any better. I thought the exams were very thorough, not what I expected based on past treatments by a previous chiropractor. The correction was a medium pressure on the side of my upper neck. Immediately after the first treatment I felt lighter. After three to four weeks I noticed a reduction in pain and the effect continues over time.

– William B.

Dear Dr. Barone,

The first time I heard about you was on the radio on am 1160 in March 2005. You were talking about all my symptoms: Sciatic pain in right leg, hand pain, shoulder pain, memory loss, upper arm pain, acid reflux, & headaches

I decided not to live with these ailments anymore. After the first adjustment I felt lighter and taller and “in place”. After three months of treatments I have had less shoulder pain, my memory is improving, I have less headaches, no hand pains, less upper arm pains, and my sciatic pain is very infrequent.

I’m very pleased with the care that I’m receiving and I am very confident that with continued treatment my health will be restored.

Thank you Dr. Barone and staff. Sincerely, – Barbara H.

Dear Dr. Barone,

I was suffering with neck, right shoulder and lower back pain as well as part of my right leg, ankle and practically the entire right side of my body for about 8 years. In the past, my regular doctor sent me to 3 different chiropractors but they didn’t know what was wrong with me. I heard Dr. Barone’s program on the radioand heard testimonials of people that had suffered for 30 and 40 years so I immediately knew this was for me so I made an appointment that same day. Dr. Barone told me I needed an adjustment so I did. I got an adjustment and I started to feel better the first week.

Thank you Dr. Barone.

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.

All helped to some degree but I couldn’t understand that with all I was doing and with all of the money I was spending that I just couldn’t seem to reclaim my former self. A few months ago, I was told by an alternative practitioner that I was experiencing blockage in the brainstem area. I thought nothing of it at first, attributing it to “nerves” and a rather stressful life that I had been living for the past ten years. Yes -my neck hurt. Yes -it was uncomfortable. Yes -I had received traditional chiropractic care. However, I thought that this was to be expected as one grew older and as one experienced intense long-standing stress. Then I came to your office.

I am now virtually headache and backache free. My digestion is near normal. I am clearly benefiting from the good foods whose natural healing properties were partially lost to me.

Dear Barone Spinal Care Team,

I had been suffering from a series of aches starting with daily headaches, migraines, neck, scalp, low back and elbow pain, in addition to jaw tension, arms foot and toe numbness. The level of pain started to severely interfere with my daily activities and relationships at work, as well as at home with my family.

Around eight months ago the headaches were unbearable; due to that, I decided it was time for me to look for help. I had considered myself a healthy person, definitely not healthy anymore.

I met you, one Saturday morning after my exercise routine. This was when I started therapy with your office. In two months all the pain and numbness were gone. This is a miracle for me!

I want to thank the doctors and the staff at Barone Spinal Care for doing a great job and positively changing my life.

Gratefully, – Carmen A.
