At first he assured me he could take care of my problem in 6-8 visits; he was not like other chiropractors. I certainly got relief, but the pain started moving around, and later got worse. For example, instead of lower back pain, I got constant mid back pain; finally he told me the adjustments he was doing could tended to cause that pain. After 6-8 visits when I was still having pain he got very beligerent with me, lambasting me with a list of everything that was wrong with me personally as an excuse for his not being able to help. I was afraid to tell him of any pain because he would get so angry. One day he seemed manic,rambled on high-speed and didn't make a bit of sense. Maybe too much red bull, I don't know. I realize a chiropractor may take longer to be able to help you than originally anticipated, but his angry attitude made the visits very stressful. In the end just doing the same old bone cracking over and over without finding reason for them not working.
"Dr John" basically diagnosed all the reasons why I have been having chronic pack pain since having kids. His adjustments did not hurt (although they were intense), he did not do the usual chiro crap of ordering a million xrays, etc. I am a little freaked out by adjustments, so he told me what he would do and it went fine. The next day I was sore, and then the day after I felt better than I had in months. Now I just have to keep up the stretches, start working out, and see Dr John every few weeks for a tune up.
Last winter I had knee pain and turned to PosiChiro. Dr.John's scientific background and his natural affability put me at ease with the idea of chiropractic. Dr.John was thorough and took plenty of time in diagnostic tests to determine what was the issue, and was clear about what he could do as adjustments. After requesting, he performed adjustments. Was it an instant miracle and I jumped back into my long runs? No. Did it hurt when I walked the next week or shoot fire down my leg when I sprinted a block to catch the bus? Not anymore. I was able to complete my scheduled marathon-even achieving a time under my initial goal (that had been abandoned when the knee went bad). He is genuinely interested in his people and views himself as part of your training team. He provides exercises and stretches to maintain the bodywork he performed too. It is clear that there was improvement in my knee/hip issue and I am still working with Dr. John and referring my broken down friends to him as well.
My experience at posativbely chiropractic was excellent, Ity was my first time to ever have a chiropractor work on me. I have always been leary of this type of thing until now. The adjustment to my shoulders hips and spine were an eye opening experience. I felt amazing the next day. I practice yoga so I thought that was enough.Dr John Dandelski has opened my mind to a new understanding of alignment. His ptactice is extremely professional, cuurtious and most of all - feel much more freedom in my neck, back and knees. Thanks again!
