"I am writing this letter to thank you for the wonderful help you have given me in the last six weeks.
When I first came to see you, I could barely turn my neck at all. I had been out of alignment for 5 or 6 days, and I was hurting so badly that I couldn’t concentrate on my work, and it was very difficult (and dangerous) to drive with such restricted movement of my neck.
To my surprise, my neck was only part of the problem. Until you started adjusting the various parts of my back and neck that were out of proper alignment, I was unaware that many symptoms that I had attributed to aging or day-to-day stress began to disappear.
The most unexpected symptoms to disappear after my neck adjustments were the pre and post-menstrual headaches I had been having for years. And being caused by hormones, they were immune to regular pain medication (Advil, Tylenol, etc.) which meant that I had to suffer through them with no relief available.
Two days after you adjusted my lower back for the first time I got this incredible energy rush down my left leg. I hadn’t even been aware there was a problem until I felt the energy connection reassert itself.
I have found that my entire body has become energized since beginning treatments. I had attributed my constant state of fatigue to aging and stress. What a surprise to find that being tired was no longer my natural state!
Like many people who work on computers part of the day, I had a constant ache in the middle of my back that I call “computer back”. Now, I feel so much better, and it takes more hours of computer time to make that ache come back."
"Prior of discovering Dr. Deters – I suffered from lower back and left leg pain, daily. My degree of pain and incapacity varied. Most days I was able to “get through the day” by limiting my activity and “popping” Motrin, 80 mg 2-3 times a day. On other day, the pain was unbearable and severely limited my physical functioning.
I worked full-time in the nursing field as an R.N. I found myself in administrative positions that did not require a lot of physical output. I was successful in my career, yet unfulfilled.
My initial injuries were a result of multiple traumas, which occurred approximately 10-15 years ago. I have pursued many avenues of treatment for my pain. Medicine/Medical physicians offered many symptoms relievers, some successful for a time. Usually though, I heard the same story:
1) x-rays showed no fractures of my hip or pelvic bone
2) soft tissue trauma takes a long time to heal (10-15 years was more than enough time in my opinion)
3) lose weight; I am a big beautiful woman, thus the M.D.’s told me if I would just lose weight my problems with my back and leg would be solved. Sure, said I. I have tried to lose weight, but diet and no exercise do not make a successful weight loss program. Thus, for many years I was in a vicious cycle with the medical field offering me hope or effective treatment. Dr. Deters was conducting complimentary back screenings at the Adams St. Festival. Hmm, chiropractic therapy – I was not too sure, but I was willing to be open minded; little did I know that Dr. Deters would open a new pathway of life for me.
That was the end of April. So much has changed in a very short period of time. Dr. deters diagnosed the spinal subluxations as the root of my problems. Through his chiropractic treatment and the support of the center’s dedicated staff, I have been able to change my lifestyle and life drastically. I no longer rely on pain relief drugs or muscle relaxants. My level of activity/physical ability has increased ten-fold. With the improvement of my physical status/stamina, I have been able to initiate an exercise program. This new level of activity has developed into a new lifestyle/attitude towards exercise and nutrition. I am experiencing rewards from this lifestyle change both personally and professionally. Who knew that a “street fair” would be the turning point in my life."
"I first came to see Dr. Deters at the end of January 1995. My complaints were many: headaches, chronic sinusitis, stiff and sore neck, tension across shoulders, low back pain radiating into the leg, and TMJ dysfunction. I had been suffering from some of these symptoms for 9 years; others for 5 years. It caused me continual discomfort and brought on moodiness, agitation and sleeplessness. I had tried many different remedies: muscle relaxants, painkillers, aspirin, antihistamines, antibiotics, and decongestants. If you name it, I tried it. I found out about Dr. Deters while visiting a computer fair.
The first thing that impressed me about him was the commitment to educate patients about their bodies and why the problems exist. I began a regular schedule of treatment, first 3 visits per week, then 2, and now 1.
The results have been amazing! After the second adjustment, my daily headaches ceased. It is the middle of “allergy season”. Yet, I have not experienced any hayfever, sinus infections, or related problems. This is the first time in 9 years I have been allergy free! The tension in my neck, shoulders, and mid back is greatly diminished, and getting better with each treatment. My low back problems are virtually gone, and the pain, which used to radiate down my leg is nonexistent.
I am a true believer in the benefits of chiropractic and would urge anyone who suffers from pain to seek this type of treatment before taking the drastic and costly route of modern medicine."
"Up until about six months ago, I was taking 6-9 aspirin a day and still having headaches. I heard about a technique in chiropractic medicine that did not actually manipulate the bones from my sister. Her chiropractor gave me Dr. Deters name here in San Diego and recommended I try this treatment. My sister and I share common ailments of headaches and stomach aches (I have been diagnosed with IBS) and she raved about how well she felt.
After x-rays and computer test, Dr. Deters was able to pinpoint my specific problems. After about 2 weeks of adjustments, my headaches were obviously less intense and less frequent. After 2-3 month, I wasn’t getting headaches at all and my stomach problems lessened. Since then, the few times I do get headaches make me question how I lived with them at all. Being headache free and feeling well is incredible.
Dr. Deters and the rest of the staff are very helpful and concerned about their patients. For me, it has made a difference in my everyday life and health."
"The wonderful care I have received from Dr. Deters has made me recommend him to friends and relatives and those who have come to him have been helped also.
Several years ago, I was experiencing pain and tingling in my neck radiating down my arm, and numbness and tingling in the fingers of my left hand. X-rays showed spurs and arthritis affecting several cervical vertebrae. The health plan doctor gave me the option of “take two aspirin – (but don’t call me in the morning) and learn to live with it, or, if the pain is unbearable, have surgery.”
I suggested chiropractic. Horrified, he sent me to a physical therapist. After 9 treatments, I was getting better, but the HMO decided I was “well enough” and refused further treatment. Within a few weeks, the symptoms were back.
Eventually, I was led to Dr. Deters and the rest is history. I’m still getting regular adjustments and acupressure, but the office visits are coming further apart, and some day, I hope I will need only an occasional treatment.
My insurance plan doesn’t cover chiropractic, but we were able to set up an affordable fee schedule, which has made it possible for me to continue.
Thank God for Dr. Deters and the rest of the staff who is always so friendly and positive, for helping me back to health."
"I want to thank you for the excellent health care, both for treatment of my lower back pain and for the preventative aspects of your program. It is also a welcomed feeling that you will refer your patients to another physician if you feel it is necessary.
The video presentation explaining the principle regarding subluxations was extremely helpful in providing me an understanding of preventative health care as part of your practice.
Your administrative coordinator is terrific in her duties of using the electronic diagnostic “machine” which I had never seen before. Your entire staff is to be complimented on their sincere caring attitude and professionalism. I look forward to your care for many years to come. Your “magic hands” have a gentle firmness I have never experienced before."
"I came to Dr. Deters in April of 1997 when I was 21/2 months pregnant with my third child. My chief complaint was terrible, unbearable headaches, which on a daily basis on a scale of 1-10 they were an 11, and they lasted most of the day. At times, I’d wake up in the night with a throbbing, aching head, unable to go back to sleep. I also was experiencing vertigo, which scared me to say the least. Before I saw Dr. Deters I saw my Internist, for these problems, and she suggested I wait until the second trimester and then she would prescribe Vicoden, an addictive, very strong pain reliever classified as a narcotic, I believe.
I couldn’t believe she even suggested that! She knew I was in terrible pain, and said it was quoted “unhealthy for the baby inside of me, if I was in so much pain and not being able to rest”, and that I had to weigh the decision of the benefits vs. the risks.
I in NO WAY wanted to “drug” myself and my baby, so I acted on the referral of my Mom, who was also a patient of Dr. Deters, and told me to give him a shot.
I found out my vertebrae were in terrible shape and that chiropractic would most definitely help. So at that point I came 3 times a week for a few months. After about 2 months, I noticed a definite improvement in the amount of headaches. They were maybe 3 a week versus daily. I was thankful for that! But I kept coming for regular adjustments, and soon my headaches were down to perhaps once a week or less. I’d say after about 5months, my headaches were 95% better with only an occasional headache. Not only had my headaches gone, I had a healthy baby boy, who along with my other children get regular adjustments. My quality of health today is probably TEN times better than it was when I first started coming to Dr. Deters.
Also, just recently a mysterious, unexplained pain in my right ankle has finally disappeared. Since February 1996, I had chronic very deep cartilage pain. It was never diagnosed as an illness, and I assumed it was one of my crosses to bear in life. It was annoying to say the least, but now that this pain is gone too. I feel GREAT! Declining health as we age is not to be expected. You have the power to eat right, exercise, and seek alternative care for what ails you. In my case, chiropractic worked and will always be my life choice.
I thank Dr. Deters and his staff wholeheartedly, and I hope everyone who is considering chiropractic, to definitely try it. It works! Plain and simple."
"For several years now, I have had lower back pain from past injuries. I noticed it was getting harder to sleep through the night, often waking up stiff and sore. I learned about chiropractic through family members. So I decided that I had nothing to lose by seeking chiropractic care.
I have been seeking chiropractic care for three months now. I feel so much better. I am not as irritable as I once was. I can sleep throughout the night on my back undisturbed. Thanks to Dr. Deters. I feel so much better and live a relatively pain free life once again."
"My hay fever was previously treated by a medical doctor with a specialty in allergies. After extensive testing, my doctor proved conclusively that I am allergic to anything that grows.
My allergist would inject corticosteroids into my body with the intent to repress histamines, the body’s natural defenses against invaders. (Also the culprit for the common allergy symptoms: itchy eyes and nose, watery eyes, runny nose, etc.) This would be good for 4-6 weeks. After this time ended, my allergies would lash out with furious anger because they had been suppressed for so long. In the end, I would be miserable again. The cycle would start all over again with the next coming allergy season.
The adjustments have provided increased mobility in my back and neck. In addition, Dr. Deters found a subluxation in my upper back, which controls the nerve centers to my sinuses. Adjustments to this area have provided enough relief that I no longer require shots or medication for my allergies. Hence, I can let my body develop its own natural defenses against pollens and spores, the aggravators of my hay fever."
"I began seeing Dr. Deters in May 2002. My neck was stiff and its movement was restricted. I had continual problems with my lower back going out. I had received traditional chiropractic care as a young adult, so I was aware of the value of chiropractic care. What makes Dr. Deters’s care superior is his use of the Pro-adjuster. I have found that Dr. Deters’ methods are more effective because unlike traditional chiropractic, he doesn’t crack and forcibly move resistant bones. Dr. Deters’s knowledge, skill, concern and compassion are evident in his manner. I highly recommend his care."
"I've been a patient of Dr. Deters for the past two months, starting around Halloween after I got in a car accident. I noticed some lower back pains and some stiffness. It was actually hurting to go to sleep. I've been doing his treatments for subluxations for about two months now. I've noticed a big difference. Slowly, but surely getting better. Yeah it works pretty good. I come in twice a week, 15 minutes, and its definitely improved a lot since the last two months.
"Before I started seeing Dr. Deters, I had some neck pain, and I would get really stressed out, because of school, so I had a lot of tension in my back and neck. I started seeing Dr. Deters, and that's really helped a lot.
I also sprained my ankle really badly earlier this summer, and Dr. Deters also treated that. With the help of the chiropractic treatments it's definitely healed a lot faster. It's back to normal, and I can exercise on it even though my other doctors have told me not too. It's totally fine after seeing Dr. Deters."
"I got hit by a car about four months ago, and I had really bad hip problems, and I was referred to Dr. Deters chiropractic office, and within four days I didn't have any more pains in my hips. He had me do this thing where I swirl my knees, and I could barely do it the first day, and then four time coming to him it is way better, and my back feels better."
