Why I LOVE 'A Better Life Chiropractic:

"When I entered Dr. Barbaro's office in March of this year, I could hardly walk. The back spasms that I was experiencing were constant. A slight move would cause severe pain. In fact, almost in tears, I decided on chiropractic care. New to this area, I went through the yellow pages and visited websites. I picked ‘A Better Life Chiropractic’ and the moment I first met Dr. D and her staff, I knew I made the right decision. The entire office staff was just wonderful, making a 65 year old man, in excruciating pain, feel welcomed. There was a sense that everyone sincerely wanted to help.

An initial consultation with Dr. D (more like conversation with a friend) led her to make a decision to immediately fit me into her busy schedule. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated those first visits. After the initial adjustments and a topical applied to my back, I left her office, able to walk with very little pain. My spirits were lifted knowing that I was going to get the care necessary for a full recovery.

I continued treatment three times a week for a few months and before long the muscle spasms completely abated. The soreness in my back continued for another month or so, but with the exercises recommended by Dr. D and massage therapy by Mary, they too subsided. I am back playing golf on a daily basis and happy to say that I am pain free thanks to Dr. D and her staff. If you are in pain and need chiropractic care, there can be no one better than Dr. D and her staff. Thank you all!"
