Sprain Strain to Neck, Upper Back

★★★★★
I am very thankful to have Dr. Thomas Young as my primary care doctor with my back issues (a fall on 11-16-06). I feel the chiropractic and ultrasound treatments have been very helpful in my pain relief. I feel that it has helped in keeping the spasms and tightness down. I feel that if I did not have these treatments right now I would be back to limping caused by severe pain. I thank Dr. Young and his stafffor their care. It is helpful that he can refer to Rainbow Rehab Physical Therapy and massage therapy if needed in the same building. He can also refer you to other doctors for pain management, MRI and X-ray needs. I am very thankful for their services and care.

Neck, Upper Back Pain

★★★★☆
I have been a patient of Dr. Young’s for over twenty years. He has treated me for a variety of illnesses and several car accidents. His staff is always exceptionally friendly and helpful, greeting me by name as I walk in the door. I trust Dr. Young’s myriad knowledge and experience. His diagnoses and prognosis are pretty much spot on. His wit and humor make every visit a unique experience.

“I have seen several other medical providers regarding my injury and Dr. Young is the first physician to actually help me feel relief. The spinal manipulation, ultrasound and massage therapy has truly helped me. I also like the fact that Dr. Young is a naturopathic doctor and I can utilize his expertise in that area as well.”

Lower Back Pain

★★★★★
I have been under Dr. Young’s care for nearly ten years. All of my other doctors wanted to send me to surgery. Thanks to Dr. Young’s explanations and treatments I am able to manage my degenerated disc disease with less pain and without
surgery.”

Low Back and Leg Injury

★★★★★
Thank you for helping me with my injured back and leg. Since the clinic has treated me, the pain in my back is less severe and the numbness in my left leg is not constant. I was in really bad shape with multiple injuries and I didn't want any more surgery. When I started treatment with Dr. Young and with the staffs caring attention, I am learning to take better care of my health. You are the best, thank you Dr. Young.”
