I had a pinched nerve in my lower back (L5) for almost 10 years and I used everything from physical therapy to oxycontin to manage the pain. I saw a spinal injection specialist (cortisone) but I never went through with those treatments. A friend of mine recommended Dr. Van Metter by saying things like this:

- “I was going to have back surgery and Dr. Van Metter saved me from surgery altogether.”
- “If you go see Dr. Van Metter and after 4 or 5 visits, he still can’t fix you, I’ll pay for it myself.”

I had my first chiropractic adjustment with Dr. Van Metter over 13 years ago.  At that time I had limited flexiblity in my neck and suffered from hay fever-like alleries almost 12 months of the year.  I was pretty miserable.  A friend suggested I see Dr. Van Metter, I was skeptical. I had my first adjustment and WOW did it improve my life! I had almost immediate relief from allergies and they continued to dissipate with every adjustment.  My neck was so much better I encourage everone to try chiropractic.

I wanted to take this opportunity to send Dr. Van Metter a note to express my gratitude for the treatment I recently received. I have always been apprehensive about chiropractic care, but after my visit to Dr. Van Metter, I will never be apprehensive again. I have been suffering with numbness in my leg for quite some time. After one adjustment, the numbness is gone and I feel back to normal so I can start running again. Thanks so much Dr. Bob.

My family and I have been coming to Dr. Bob for many years and I'm still amazed at how chiropractic care can help in so many ways.  Two years ago I suffered from a bad case of the shingles on the left side of my face and head.  The pain was like nothing I've ever felt before.  I had pain in my head and eye 24/7.  Dr Bob was the one to diagnose me even before I knew what I had.  I never heard of shingles on your face or head before, so I didn't take it very serious.  Later that night I was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with shingles.  The doctor in the emergency room gave me pain medication, but it didn't do anything other than give me an upset stomach. 

I have had chronic back pain for over 20 years.  Over the years, I tried acupuncture, physical therapy, went to a pain management doctor, orthopedic surgeon, and chiropractor.  None of the treatments helped and I did not want to take pain medication since I felt this was not a cure and could only cause more problems.  It was very depressing to be in pain and not able to do the things I wanted.  Walking, shopping, everyday simple tasks as well, going on vacation and traveling was a chore.

I've been going to Dr. Bob for the last 4 years. Absolutely love it here. His service has allowed me to perform my job that requires heavy lifting. I would absolutely recommend anybody to him and get work done here. I was constantly throwing out my back, almost immediately after first service; I saw significant results. Go now! Don't over analyze; Just Do It! The friendly staff; professionalism you'll find here. Wonderful experience. My wife, my two kids, and mother-in-law come here. We all love it! - Peter S.
