Ratings for Dr. Dan Yachter
A LONG 3 YEAR SEARCH FOR AN ANSWER: Three years ago, my then 7 year old daughter started experiencing extremely sharp headaches randomly during the day. So bad, that it inter-feared with her everyday activities. We took her to our family practitioner, then sent to the eye doctor, and ears, nose and throat Dr. then back to the family practitioner who then referred her to a pediatric neurologist. They ran a battery of tests and scans with no conclusion as to what was causing her headaches. So, they gave her a prescription which she needed to build up too and then after 6 months we would begin to ween her off the medication. This medication came with a variety of side effects, but it was the only thing that provided somewhat relief. Once off the medication, she still had her headaches. Not as severe and not as often. We later found out from her as she got older that she stopped telling us about them and just dealt with it. As a parent, that is tough to hear. Three years into our journey for answers we brought her into Dr. Yachter's office to be evaluated. Dr. Leif, X-Rayed her entire spine, (Not Done Previously) checked the muscles in her back and inputted all her information into the computer for our consultation the following day. The following day as we consulted with both Dr. Leif and Dr. Yachter and they had her X-Ray up on the screen. My wife and I could see clear as day. That from her shoulders up, her spine was leaning towards her left shoulder pinching her spinal cord and then they showed us the side view and we could see that her spine was growing straight up and not curving towards the back like a healthy spine should. To see this and to know she had been in pain for the last three years and her neck and spine had never been evaluated. Was pretty heart wrenching for us. The good news!! There was something that could be done for her. For the past month she has been receiving adjustments as well as doing at home therapy as prescribed by Dr. Yachter. Her neck and back muscles have loosened up and after 30 days she had another X-Ray and evaluation. At that evaluation we were able to see clear signs that her bones were being shifted back in place and we have not heard her mention the headaches that would put her on the couch for an entire day. There is a phrase they use at Elevation Health, "We Don't Guess, We Test". Because of their through testing in place, we were able to get to the root of my daughter's pain and discomfort. They put a plan in place for her spinal correction and continued spinal health. As a parent you can imagine the relief we felt as we were able to get answers for our daughters pain but, to know they had the training, experience, and expertise to correct it. A Big Thank You To: Dr. Yachter, Dr. Leif and the rest of the Elevation Health Staff for serving us and bringing a healthier life into our family
I wouldn't trust my spine to any other chiropractor! Dr. Dan and the staff at Elevation Health are experts in their field. I love the comfortable and friendly atmosphere. And, I really love the workshops they offer on multiple health topics. They provide an all-round health experience that is unlike any other!
Even with encouragement from a family member, I was initially reluctant to add my Elevation Health program to an already busy schedule. However, I do not regret for a moment taking that step a few months ago. Each time I visit for an adjustment, I feel cared for by the outstanding staff and leave with the satisfaction that, with their expert guidance, my posture is improving and I am moving toward optimum health.
Hope is a wonderful thing to have when it comes to your health. That's what you have when you participate in Dr Yachter's program. You are individually assessed and he and his team use physical therapy , adjustments, and traction. You also have access to current and pertinent information to through lectures and he and his staff will answer any questions pertaining to your health.
I was shopping with my wife and kids when we met Nigel at Earthly Origins, one of his co-workers came over to give us a flyer on nerve and spine issues, to which I thanked her and told her I wasn't interested (even though my neck was killing me at that moment) my wife looked the flyer over with all the information and said "go over there and talk to them maybe they can help you". I have been to countless doctors and one shady chiropractor over the years whom could never figure out the true issues to my constant pain for the last 20 something years. I had pain killers thrown at me left and right to just mask the issues. So I was pretty sure they couldn't help either and I almost ran away from the their little set up when I found out it was a chiropractic office. Nigel was the reason I stayed around to listen, he immediately assured me they weren't your normal chiropractic service and it wasn't just about adjustments. He explained in detail how one disc out of line can effect the rest of my body and man he nailed many of my ailments...I have been sick with many issues since I was young, car accidents, sports injuries (shoulder, hip, neck and head injuries), electrocution, 2 drownings...so my body is pretty beat up. I was still skeptical, but decided to go in for the X-rays and explanation..I didn't expect much from it...but like Nigel got me into the door...and Dr. Dan kept me there. That man is passionate about what he does and my family and I live a very clean and healthy lifestyle to keep my symptoms under control, eating organic, avoiding pharmaceuticals, natural remedies etc. I had abused pain killers and otc medications for over 20 years and it was killing me from within. Well Dr. Dan preached the same thing, so i figured he must have something figured out, it was his explanation of the brain and spine that sold me. It explained all of my issues in an half an hour of talking...no doctor could do that in 100 visits!!! This is my 4th week at Dr. Dan's I am doing an intensive 36 week 3 day a week adjustment and therapy sessions and I am already seeing improvements...Miss Barbie and Nigel are there to answer all my questions and walk me through my therapy (it can be daunting at first) and Dr. Dan is always there to keep up with my adjustments, which is important for me...I like knowing that 1 Doctor is in charge of my spine so that my adjustments are consistent. I spend so much time there I feel like I should be paying rent, but I know they are ACTUALLY FIXING MY ISSUES! I had sublixation in my neck atlas and C5 were off (it was straight instead of curved my test was painted with blues and greens...that's bad by the way) lower back misalignment and hip misalignment. So it's a lot of work....as far as cost...I think it's more than fair, there is the thing of not taking insurance, but you know what it would of probably cost 2x or3x more if I went through insurance. Thankfully they take care credit and HSA cards. Before I went in I was told by a spine doctor i would need fusion surgery and possible ulnar nerve surgery....NOT ANYMORE! $50,000 dollars or 3,600 dollars...not even a hard decision and I thank God for leading me to him, because 4 months ago I was crying in bath tub with the light off begging God to help me find relief for my constant pain...and here I am! Honestly I wish I would've found him years ago, but at least I am here now...this place is legit and I am as skeptical as they come! Sincerely, Tommy Harris
I am delighted to tell you the difference Dr. Yachter and his chiropractic care has made in my life. First of all I was already seeing another chiropractor who I thought was aligning my back when he was just balancing my hips. He charged a substantial amount of money for this and I would be in pain again within 24 hours. My back felt like it was coming unhinged, and I was routinely woken up with pain in the night and sitting on ice during the day, just to cope. I felt like I needed some kind of physical therapy for my back as I was becoming more disabled. When I mentioned this to the chiropractor, he just said losing weight would solve the problem which was true, but my back was in real trouble. I did not know what to do and finally I had to wear a back brace, every day, to hold myself together. My brother had experienced significant weight loss success with Dr. Yachter in his Nutrimost practice and he had also been amazed at how much better his back was with Dr. Yachter’s chiropractic care. My brother has said this was the best he has felt in his whole life! So he enrolled me in Dr. Yachter’s health program, which I thought was a divine appointment, and after the first week I did not need my back brace anymore! Over about 3 weeks the pain subsided. After about 6weeks, I am stronger physically and able to do house work and shop at the store without using a scooter! And on the Nutrimost plan I lost 31 pounds in 47 days!!! My back is together again and I am getting stronger! The difference? Dr. Yachter, is determined to correct your chiropractic problem…he is not content to help you cope. So if you are serious are about getting healed, this is your answer to prayer. He makes it easy and very affordable to have x-rays done and other testing to take the guess work out of your condition. He is able to put you on a plan of exercises and therapy that will ensure improvement. Then he monitors these improvements with continued testing & measurements. So if you want proof on paper you are getting better he can provide that for you too! I am living proof that his plan works! Sincerely, April Stapp
My husband and I went to "Dinner with the Doc" and were very excited about the story Dr. Dan told us about his Dad and the migraines his dad suffered most of his life, and how he was cured. That was great news for me because I have suffered with chronic migraines for the last 20 years. In the last ten years I was having 3 to 5 per week, every week. I had tried many things to rid myself of these migraines including the "botox" injections. Some things would work, but only for about 1 year. The pain pills did work, however, I was only allowed 9 pills per month. As you can figure out, that was not enough pills for 3 to 5 migraines per week. Also, I don't think taking pain pills is a way to live your life. My husband and I signed up at the dinner to have the tests done to find out what the problem was with our pain. We both found out a few things about what was causing the pain (my husband has back problems.) Dr. Dan explained about how prescriptions were toxic in your body, he also gave me some advice on grocery items that I shouldn't be consuming because they could be part of the reason I was having migraines. We are also attending the workshops and learning so much about how the body works and how it can cure itself. We've learned about how to get a good night's sleep, nutrition, energizing and many more things. After about 6 weeks with Dr. Dan, as of today I have not had a migraine for 11 days. This may not sound like a "wow" factor to you, but for me it is awesome. I'm looking forward to the day I can say, I don't suffer with migraines at all. I know my faith in God and Dr. Dan's and Dr. Laith's (sp) skill, I will reach this goal First and foremost, I thank God, he is my Lord and Savior and I know that He led me to Elevation Health and I thank Dr. Dan and his staff. I'm looking forward to a "migraine free" life. Remember, good health is not a destination, it is a journey. Donna Hall
My first time walking into Elevation Health was monumental for me, but my anxiety was met with honest, gentle, faith-filled care. I needed help, more than I had ever realized. Two months later, I've regained physical strength and stamina, flexibility and movement, and best of all - the pain filled days I endured for YEARS have nearly disappeared. I coupled this treatment with NutriMost in Debary and have lost 35 pounds - so far. I tell everyone, I feel like a different person. I can't count how many chiropractors I pass as I make my way to their office...I am extremely glad I kept driving to Elevation Health. You will be too! - Judith B
I made a great discovery in healthcare when I found Elevation Health! I am 65 years old and was in severe pain from neglecting my health and involved in many accidents during those years. Dr. Dan Yachter and his staff are very professional, educated in their field, and truly care about your health. They want the best life for you! I am now experiencing that best life now!! I would not hesitate to recommend Dr.Yachter and everyone at Elevation Health for the finest in Chiropractic care. GS - Deltona
I was suffering from stiff neck and tension headaches periodically I decided to give Dr. Yachter office a try. After my spinal evaluation I was really shocked at how my cervical spine was so out of alignment. I currently half way with my treatments and I have noticed a near 360 change in how I feel. The headaches have greatly subsided along with having the stiffness in my neck. I can turn my head without any pain and it makes driving so much better especially when I have to look when changing lanes. Thanks Dr. Dan
