Dr. Duca is the best! He literally saved me from facing a second surgery on a disk that re-ruptured. Having already gone the standing medical route with a microdiskectomy I was eager to try a new method when my back went out in 2010-2011. I knew from research that surgery and/or pain meds were not a good option for me, so I visted Dr. Duca. He was kind and informative, really listening to what I had to say and was eager to help. He ordered an MRI and painstakingly went over all the ins and outs of my options with me, knowing how afraid I was of another surgery. He worked with me multiple times a week to take me from barely able to stand, to fully functioning again! I credit the miracle of prayer and the expert training of Dr. Duca with my healing. I continue to maintain and have adjustments to keep my back in healthy shape, trusting Dr. Duca completely. I recommend him to everyone for total body health, not just for back problems. I'm a definite believer now in chiropractic care and am happy to have been blessed with being a patient of Dr. Duca's for several happy years.

Dr. Stanner found out my Mother had NPH-water on the brain. He listened to me when no one else would because the MRI didn't show the disease. Dr. Stanner looked behind her left eye and found the water. Quickly we went to Brookwood Hospital and I was never so put at ease and putting a shunt in my Mother's head at 74 years old was quite scary. Dr. Stanner saved my Mother from the nursing home because as this progresses she would have gotten other symptoms which would've made it impossible to enjoy her independent life. She lived 7 more years and you can't put a price on that; he is my hero for giving me those extra years. I highly recommend that if you have any family members who have the symptoms of NPH that you get them to Dr. Stanner ASAP. I will never forget him and his kindness. One more thing my Mother came through the surgery needing only Advil.

Brightstar Chiropractic
I have had three treatments from Brightstar a d I can truly say this is the best thing that has happened to me concering the pain in my knees and lower back in over 5 years . I would recommend Brightstar to anyone having pain that you can't get rid of , and Dr. Josephine Kandie is one of the most caring and professional providers I have ever met,and believe me in over 73 years I have met and visited many doctors . I personally give her and her business a 5 star rating in everything that she does from her explaining what's going on with each individual assessment to the cleanliness of her facility . If anyone ever have the need to try a Chiropractor ,please keep Dr. Kandie in mind , I promise you won't regret it

Nice staff, but bring your wallet. The chiropractor took my history then required I have multiple x-rays/tests, showed a sensationalist video about how I'd need 3x/weekly treatment for 6 months and charged me more than $500 on my way out. If you need an adjustment or want an opinion without feeling pressured to sign up for thousands of dollars of treatment, stay far away from here.

I was very impressed with Dr Palmer's knowledge, not only in the chiropractic field, but in nutrition and wellness as well. She spent quite a bit of time with me in my free consultation and I am excited to begin care with this office. Highly recommend.

Dragun Chiropractic
Dr. Dragun is amazing at what he does. I was having neck and leg problems that lasted for a couple of months. After 2-3 visits, I no longer have any pain. Dr. Dragun is very professional at what he does and I definitely recommend him.

Tips & Advices
Scoliosis is a disorder where the spine curves sideways. Most people develop the condition during the growth spurt before puberty. The cause of scoliosis is unknown and most cases are mild, but the rare severe instances can disable a person.
Orthopedic surgeons attend four years of medical school, then four to five years of orthopedic residency in a hospital. They must also be licensed and certified in orthopedic surgery by the state in which they practice.
The terms "orthopedic doctor" and "orthopedic surgeon" refer to the same profession. Related specialties include podiatrist, a doctor who works with the bones, tendons and ligaments in the feet, and a sports medicine physician, a doctor specially trained to treat athletes.
The cost of a visit to an orthopedic surgeon depends on the type of tests ordered and treatment given. For example, an MRI costs $500-$1,300. An initial consultation costs $100- $500, while anesthesia for a procedure generally ranges from $2,000-$4,000. Overall, an orthopedic surgery can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000.
During a consultation or first appointment with an orthopedic surgeon, the practitioner will ask the patient a variety of questions to understand the situation. The surgeon might ask about the patient's pain levels, medical history, and any prior injuries. Then, the surgeon will administer a physical exam and possibly schedule tests to better understand the problem. Possible tests include a stress test, x-ray, or MRI.
