I came to Steel City Chiropractic to take control of my lower back pain. Fifteen years ago, I was pinned between a car and truck in an auto accident. Until recently, my back pain was most severe in the winter.
Before starting chiropractic, I tolerated at least 30 minutes of back pain after waking up every morning.
Now, I am able to stand straight out of bed, bend and sit without pain. If it wasn’t for chiropractic, there would be a lot of crippled people and a lot of pain and grimace in people’s faces!
I came to Steel City Chiropractic for lower back, neck and shoulder pain.
I used to come to the office for chiropractic adjustments three times per week; now I am down to one adjustment per week.
Now, I have better posture, less pain and tension in my neck and have experienced a decrease in lower back pain.
I have always believed in chiropractic care as it has helped my family. Now I get to experience the benefits.
I came to Steel City Chiropractic because of daily headaches, which often turned into migraines.
My headaches occur much less frequently and rarely turn into migraines at all since starting chiropractic care. I go days without headaches now, which is a huge improvement.
I’m definitely experiencing better sleep and an increase in energy. I even noticed a difference in digestion that I did not expect. I have an overall better feeling!
I never really knew how much the adjustments could do for me, how everything was all connected. And I was taking either Advil or Excedrin Migraine almost daily. I feel much healthier taking a more natural approach. I feel better each time I leave!
I came to the office for lower back and hip pain-I even leaned to the left side.
I am no longer leaning as much—my co-workers even noticed—and I have less hip pain since starting chiropractic care.
I feel great after adjustments!
I came into the office with weakness in my right hand and forearm
Since starting chiropractic treatment I am able to grip easier with less numbness.
I had surgery on my hand and elbow that actually did nothing for me! The treatment I had here at Steel City Chiropractic did wonders for me. I am able to snow mobile again.
I always came for chiropractic care and it has always helped me.
I came into Steel City Chiropractic with neck pain and headaches.
Since coming for chiropractic care, I have no headaches and my neck pain has gone away. I feel so much better since coming for chiropractic care.
I have notice my posture is better, I have more energy, I sleep better, my pain has decreased and I feel better overall.
My views on chiropractic care have changed because Dr. John and his staff are wonderful and they made my experience a lot easier to go through knowing that they care and take time to listen. I would recommend his care to others.
I came into the office because I had lower back pain twice a month and headaches once every week. I could not complete my running workouts without back pain.
After 15 adjustments, I had no lower back pain, less severe headaches and can now complete my workouts pain free.
I have noticed improvements in my mood since I have no pain to complain about! My family has a much more pleasant dynamic now that we are all feeling better.
Prior to chiropractic care, I suffered from severe knee pain and lower back pain.
I always thought I had arthritis in my knees. Dr. John explained to me that it was a skeletal problem and not arthritis. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to become pain free. Once I was out of knee pain and in proper alignment, I found my bowling average improved! I find that when I’m adjusted on a regular basis, I am able to remain pain free and have increased energy. I never thought that I would have more energy from chiropractic care. I also found I am sleeping much better. My mind and body feel healthier than they have in a long time.
I have referred many friends and family members to Steel City Chiropractic.
My 14-year-old daughter is also a patient. She has suffered from migraines for the past few years. She has not had one since she’s been coming here. She also has scoliosis that has never really been a problem for her, but since coming for regular adjustments, Dr. John has slowly been able to correct her spine. She has noticed that this has helped her posture tremendously!
My family has attended a couple of Dr. John’s health talks and has really learned a lot from them.
It’s also nice to go to a doctor who has such a pleasant and caring team greeting you when you walk in the door. I recommend Dr. John because he is a wonderful healer, educator, friend and human being!
Thank you, Dr. John!
My reason for coming to the office was to relieve the pain in my lower back that I had for years from jumping out of planes while stationed at the 82nd Airborne Division.
I am 1,000 percent better since coming to see Dr. John. When I first came in, I couldn’t even stand erect.
I would never go anywhere else for my chiropractic needs. That staff has dubbed me “Denzel,” and I love the attention.

I came to the office with constant pain in my upper back.
After about one month of treatment with Dr. John, I was pain free!
The changes I did not expect to occur were noted by my son and husband. They felt my posture was better and there seemed to be less of a hump in my upper back area.
After almost two years of treatment, I am still walking erect. So many people warned me about becoming crippled with a bad adjustment. I have complete faith in Dr. John.
I came to see Dr. John because I suffered from severe headaches that would last for days at a time; rarely would any type of medication take the pain away. I also suffered from hip pain when I sat for too long.
My improvement since getting chiropractic care is amazing! The number of headaches has decreased dramatically. Now if I get a headache it only lasts for a short time. Additionally, my hip pain is gone!
With fewer headaches, I am much happier because I can now enjoy life. I am much healthier, too; before, I couldn’t do any type of physical activity.
I never really had any views on chiropractic care. But if anyone asks me now, “Does it work?” my answer will be, “Yes, without a doubt!”
I came to Steel City Chiropractic because I suffered from severe jaw pain (TMJ), headaches, frequent ear infections and neck pain.
After only three visits, my jaw pain was almost non-existent, my headaches are gone and I don’t use any antibiotics for ear infections. My neck feels great and I am able to turn my head in all directions.
The changes I did not expect are that I sleep 100 times better and I sleep in any position; I don’t spend hours trying to get comfortable. Also, I don’t have numbness in my right leg or bloating in my stomach after eating small amounts of food.
At first, I was apprehensive about coming and didn’t know what to expect. Now I am mad at myself for not coming sooner. I have suffered for over a year with my symptoms. I have taken countless antibiotics, pain meds and muscle relaxers. I have also had multiple MRIs and X-rays on my head, neck and jaw. I was told my only option was jaw surgery and that I would have to pay out of pocket. There was no guarantee with the surgery. Their option for me, if I did not want surgery, was a life of pain pills and muscle relaxers. Dr. John changed all that and more. Dr. John, you rock!
I came to the office to ease the discomfort of pregnancy.
Since I was first adjusted—yes, even after the first visit— I have not experienced any lower back pain which used to affect my sleep at night.
I did not anticipate a decrease in nausea related to morning (aka all-day) sickness and much better sleep.
I have always been a believer in chiropractic care and its benefits. However, I am impressed with the immediate relief I have experienced!
I initially came into your office 3 weeks ago because I have chronic pain from a car accident that happened over 7 years ago. I have osteoarthritis in my lower back and neck. My back hurt from the base of my skull all the way to the bottom of my back. My shoulders burn because the muscles are so tight. I have limited range of motion in my neck, especially when turning it to the left. I would have dizzy spells on a daily basis. I have chronic headaches, tinnitus (ringing in my ears) and TMJ. I was born with a foot deformity which caused me to walk on the outside of my feet. This resulted in a bone spur in my right heal along with tendonitis.
Since you’ve been treating me, my back pain has improved dramatically. I do still have the occasional day when I will do too much and the pain in my lower back will return, but most days of the week, I have no lower back pain! My shoulders used to burn 24/7 but now they only burn a couple days a week and the burning sensation is not as wide spread as it once was. The range of motion in my neck has improved. I’ve noticed that I haven’t had to turn my whole upper body to look to my left when I’m driving. The frequency of my dizzy spells has diminished to where I rarely have them. I do still have the chronic headache but it’s a quarter of the intensity it used to be. My TMJ has improved as well. My jaw isn’t nearly as sore as it used to be and it doesn’t pop in and out of place as much either. I’ve also noticed that I’m walking properly on my feet. It’s the first relief I’ve had in more than seven years!
Your treatment has changed things I never thought it would. I can play with my kids without worrying about how much I’ll pay for it later. I actually went outside with them— by myself— this weekend, and we had a snowball fight and built a snowman. I was able to play with them the way I want to without needing my husband there to do the heavy lifting. I don’t wake up in the middle of the night with cramps in my back. I’m actually sleeping through the night. I’m standing up straighter. After years of pain and several doctors telling me there’s nothing they can do, I had lost hope that I would ever feel relief from this pain. By the end of the day, it was almost unbearable. I would literally get up from the dinner table every night, get on the floor and curl up in the fetal position, hoping for some relief. I haven’t done that since I started coming here. I’m much more cheerful now and am not so irritable at the end of the day. I would wake up in the morning and barely be able to get out of bed because my back was cramped so badly. Now I practically jump out of bed. I actually feel good when I wake up in the morning! I feel refreshed and ready to start my day instead of dreading having to get out of bed. I used to feel like I was a 28-year-old woman trapped in a 78-year-old’s body. Now, I’m starting to feel my age again. The mood in my house is better and happier. My husband used to come home late every night. This past week, he’s been coming home early! It’s almost as though my family is feeling my relief. It’s amazing. I didn’t realize my pain affected them so much. I also didn’t realize how much pain I was actually experiencing because I had been feeling it for so long. For the first time in years, I’m optimistic about my future. I know that I will continue to feel even better as my treatment progresses and my body heals. It’s hard to believe that just three weeks ago I thought I would have to live in pain for the rest of my life.
When I first came into your office, I was skeptical. I thought you’d go through your process of treatment and in the end tell me there’s nothing left you can do for me. Just like all the other doctors I’ve seen. I never imagined that a chiropractor would be able to heal my body the way you have. And I never thought I would feel so much better after such a short amount of time. My husband has been telling me to go see a chiropractor for years. I’m so glad I finally listened. After more than seven years of marriage, he finally won an argument and I couldn’t be happier.
