I've been going to chiropractors for almost 40 years. Some have helped, others have not. About two years ago, I developed a pounding pressure at the back of my head that caused constant brain fog and chronic fatigue. I was starting to believe that I would have to live out the rest of my life with this debilitating <url removed> of my regular chiropractors had no solutions to my problem. I started researching on the internet about this problem and I found information about the NUCCA procedure, and with a little more searching, was lead to Dr. Spinato, whose office is close to my home. With only two treatments, Dr. Spinato was able to completely cure my headaches and brain fog, and they have not returned. He is different in that he has a lot more techniques than most chiropractors have, and he will try different techniques until he finds one that helps. I would say he is one of the most skilled and open-minded healers I have found. I am very happy I found someone who knows how to do this technique.

All of my questions were answered during my appointment, and the doctor seemed very knowledgeable. They were happy to answer each and every question I had in-depth. It was so nice to arrive and see many fully qualified staff members. I've gone to some places that were very understaffed and I've never had a good experience. This place had a great staff though, and I'll definitely be going back. There was lots of available parking at their office. I was glad that I didn't have to drive around looking for parking. Just as a side note, I was very impressed with how conveniently located this business was and how close it was to other shopping centers. It was so easy to find, I didn't have any trouble at all. They talked about my X-Rays with me thoroughly to make sure I knew everything about my condition and about my treatment options. They definitely care about their patients.

Dr. Rardin has expertise in the area of medicine, and he is truly knowledgeable in understanding the human body and its function. How the body is functioning on the inside chemically determines how a person will function. He has helped me back to health by looking at what my system is doing and designed a program for me that my body has responded well to. The supplements and diet have been integral in my systems turning around and working the way its supposed to. I'm able to sleep through the night, my thinking is clearer, my memory is so much better, my thinking is better, my body assimilates the vitamins from food now, and I've lost so many inches of fat!! There's truly not enough good that can be said of my progress and excitement to feel alive again from my experience with Dr. Rardin. I'm thankful and grateful to be his patient.

They make an extra effort to get to know their patients and find out what they need. They always remember me and make me feel very important. They make an extra effort to communicate with their patients, and even updated me every time I visited about where I was at in the recovery process and how much progress I had made. It was encouraging to know how much recovery I was making at each appointment. Their primary concern is my safety and comfort, and they always take the time to address every concern of mine immediately. Their office was the absolute perfect temperature. It was so nice to be able to get out of the weather outside and sit in a relaxing, comfortable office. The waiting area here is extremely spacious. There is never overcrowding and everything is spaced appropriately.

They never have that typical, annoying music playing here. If they do play music it is soothing and appropriate for the setting. One of the first things I noticed about this business was the level of detail and attention to make the building handicap-accessible. Even the bathrooms were designed to be accessible with doors wide enough to accommodate wheelchairs and grab bars in the stalls. You could tell they really made an effort to accommodate people with all different needs. I knew I was getting top-of-the-line treatment when they told me about what they learned at the latest conference they attended, and how they were incorporating that knowledge into the practice. They gave me sufficient information to make a decision about my treatment plan.

I really loved that they offered on-site X-Rays. It was so convenient, and I didn't have to spend any extra time driving somewhere else to get them done. They explained all the risks and benefits of my treatment options. Everything was explained in detail, all my questions were answered, and I felt a lot better about choosing a treatment plan. They've never been late to any of my appointments. I've even showed up early sometimes and they've always been ready and prepared. The waiting room here is spacious. I never feel like I have to sit too close to someone or that it is overcrowded. Not only do my appointments never get canceled last minute, they take time out of their day to send me a reminder so I don't forget. They are extremely reliable.

One of the first things I noticed about this business was how many different areas of the building were handicap-accessible. I have been to other places where I couldn't tell how someone in a wheelchair could even enter, but they really spent a lot of time to accommodate people with all different needs. They answered my questions and spent a lot of time with me. I didn't feel like they were trying to rush my appointment at all. It was nice to see them treat their staff with so much respect. It was obvious that they had a good relationship with all of their staff members. They didn't pressure me to buy anything I didn't need, which I really appreciated. I've been to other places that pressured me to buy stuff and it always made me very uneasy.

I have been a patient here since November 2011 and this clinic is like no other. My back pain mid and low are completely gone and I no longer have high blood pressure. I have total freedom and I am in better shape than I was in my late teens's. In fact, I rarely have any discomfort in any area of my body. The staff is dedicated to education and high quality treatment really getting down to the root cause(s) of the discomfort and not covering it up. Another great thing about Dr. Rardin's 's office is that it is integrated to offer both chiropractic and wellness services which interdisciplinary set up allows for getting better faster. I highly recommend this place!

"I came to see Dr.Rardin after serving in the Desert Storm War. As a US Marine I was a radar tech. It involved being next to a lot of equiptment that was extremely loud. The job was constant. 24 hours at day involving sleeping next to the intensely loud noise. When Ireturned home I had greatly diminished hearing on my left ear. After a series of adjustments my hearing was fully restored and at an equal level with my right side. The time in the Gulf dealing with the noise was 7 total months. Dr. Rardin was able to reverse this problem within my first month of treatment. I continue to see him to keep my body functioning at 100%. Thanks Doc!"

I have had huge success with Dr. Spinato. My family and I have been treated and healed from serious lower back pain, to eczema, to stomach allergies, to lymphatic malformations! Dr. Spinato is an extremely gifted and passionate chiropractor with unique and effective methods that have allowed my family and me to be restored to health. His staff is also very kind and helpful and friendly. They make an extra effort to get to know their patients and find out what they need. They always remember me and make me feel very important. I refer Dr. Spinato to everyone I know--especially those who feel there is no hope. Thank you Dr. Spinato!
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.
