neoma Simpson

Neoma Simpson relief from back & neck pain

"Such a friendly and helpful Doctors and staff. Why am I having so much energy? It must be Chiorpractic! I was given x-rays and explained to me what was going on in my body. Adjustments of the spine, my streches, exercises and heat packs help. I believe in Chiropractic. It has helped me so much. It relieves the pain in my joints and gets the blood flowing to those areas to help your body heal itself. If you have fallen like I have several times on the ice and have low back pain, now is the time to see Dr. John Pispidikis to get you back in shape and to good health. It is never to late. He can help you as he has me."

Marie Roy relief from arthritis pain

“I was healthy and always stayed active until 7 years ago when I became caregiver for my husband. About 2 years ago his chronic condition worsened. Having to lift him, along with getting his wheel chair in and out of the car, took its toll. Eventually, walking became difficult and painful. At a suggestion of others, I agreed to see a Chiropractor. I walk a little straighter and take bigger steps. I can tolerate getting in and out of bed with very little pain. I am no longer concerned when driving over railroad tracks. Prior to treatment, going over any bump was excruciatingly painful. I have been seeing Dr. Pispidikis and the Team at Spinal Recovery Center for 3 weeks. The atmosphere and concern in the office, on a scale of 1 to 10, is a 13.”

“When I was bowling in my bowling league, I would get severe pain on the right side of my Neck. I bowl right handed. This pain was so severe; I thought I must give up bowling. Then I met the Team at Spinal Recovery Center. After we had talked about my pain they said come to our office, we can help you. So I made an appointment, and I have to say, I have been well satisfied with the results. I feel much better. Now I can enjoy bowling without having to put up with severe pain. Thank you Dr. P. and the Team at Spinal Recovery Center!”

ted Sparks

Ted Sparks relief from lower back & hip pain

“When I was 19 years old I had two bulging discs in my back which later herniated. I went to therapy for two years. I received some relief to where I did not have to get surgery. I have dealt with the pain on and off for 10 years. It started to get worse the older I became, so I went to more therapy but it did not help. My wife had neck pain and went to Spinal Recovery Center. She saw the Doctor, was adjusted and felt better. She bugged me to go to the Chiropractors, so I finally went and the Doctor said he could help me. I feel a lot better and he was right. It took a few weeks, but if I could feel this way all the time I will get adjusted for the rest of my life. I highly recommend Doctors, Chiropractors, Rehab Specialists and Massage Therapists at Spinal Recovery Center.”

Ashley O’Keefe relief from lower back pain, leg pain neck pain & headaches

“I would have to say when I first went in I was a big mess. But, after my 3rd or 4th session I was starting to feel a lot better. I think I have 7 more sessions left and so far I’m doing amazing. I still have some bad days, your going to have your ups and downs. I’m really glad that I’m going through the Spinal Decompression program. You can’t imagine how much help you can really get. You just have to know what options are out there. This has really been encouraging for me to do this for my health. I think if you are having any sort of Neck or Back pain I would do this over surgery. Out of a 1-10 scale, 10 being the worst, I was way over a 10. Now, I would have to say I am a 7. Since there is help out there, get it. I am a much happier person since I have received treatment from the Team at the Spinal Recovery Center.”


Jodi Bennett relief from lower back pain & back pain associated with pregnancy

“For at least 10 years I have had lower back pain. When I was in high school I played sports and had many “hard hits” to my back. Then recently, I found out I was pregnant. At 23 my back felt as though I was in a forty year old’s body. I couldn’t do simple things without unbearable pain. Often enough to bring me to tears. It also made me less active. Now, I can sleep through the night. I’ve also been taught how to properly care for my spine. Being my first time at a Chiropractor`s office I was extremely nervous, but Doctors and staff made me feel so comfortable. I would recommend anyone in pain to come to the Spinal Recovery Center. The doctors, chiropractors, rehab specilaists and massage therapists have brought back the freedom to be Pain – Free and enjoy life again. Now, I am back to my old self. Only now I have the education to take care of myself so I am better than before. Oh! and it must be said that he has the best staff ever! ”

Airial Cooley relief from lower back pain

“I started seeing Dr. P in 2021. I had enough with my back pain and decided to do something about it. Dr. P listened to my concerns and started me on treatment right away. We've done a few injections and when the pain was still there, he ordered an MRI. That was when we finally got a diagnosis. Did 2 epidural injections with Dr. Abou-Chakra who is amazing and now my pain has gone. This place has helped get my health back on track and I couldn't be more grateful! Thank you to everyone at Spinal Recovery Center. ”

Gus Ghanam relief from lower back pain & upper shoulder blades

“Three years ago, I was involved in a car accident at work and at the time I did not think my injuries were that significant. After one week, I realized my injuries were severe because I got to the point where I was almost immobile. I went to the Spinal Recovery Center for the first time. Dr. Pispidikis evaluated me and put me on a regiment that included message and physical therapy along with chiropractic services with Dr. Greiner. Shortly after that Workers' Compensation had me visit four different back surgeons, one pain management doctor and one year of physical therapy at three different places including, pool therapy from various hospitals. Some made a little difference and some made no difference at all for my pain. I contacted Workers Compensation and asked them to send me back to the Spinal Recovery Center for a reevaluation. Drs. Pispidikis and Ruiz suggested I get nerve ablations to my lower back that would get me out of chronic pain. During this time, I was still getting massage therapy with Shelly, my care specialist. Without Shelly, I don't think I could have stood the pain. Her technique allowed me a few days of relief - which I enjoyed immensely. Drs. Pispidikis and Ruiz started me on a regiment of three ablations on my lower back left side and three ablations on my lower back right side. Soon my pain went from an eight, sometimes ten to a four, sometimes to a two, which was a big relief for my ability to sleep. Without these ablations, I would not be able to work or function normally. After my lower back was complete, my upper shoulder blades were in so much pain that sometimes my wife had to dig her elbow on my shoulder and press real hard to relieve the intense pain I was in. When I drove my car, my hand would become numb and the pain would continue to come back. I had to manipulate my hand by pulling or pushing on it to relieve the pressure from my neck and upper back. I went to a surgeon for my upper back and he told me that I needed immediate surgery and he could relieve the pressure by removing the vertebrae discs and replacing it with a steel cage, which could lead to paralysis on my right hand. I went back to the Spinal Recovery Center and gave them the information. Drs. Pispidikis and Ruiz, the pain management doctor, asked me to try ablations on the area in question. They completed the ablations on my right side, which took me out of pain completely in a very short period. They continued to do my left side and I had the same results, no pain! My hands don't fall asleep any longer and my wife doesn't have to manipulate my back. As of right now I am almost pain free for the first time in 3 i/2 years. Lindsey and her support staff are always professional and do an excellent job making sure you are prepared for the procedures. They check your history and your vitals to make sure you are calm and ready to proceed. In all instances, the support staff, along with Lindsey, have done a professional job. Just recently, the Spinal Recovery Center started using twilight anesthesia. I have had 11 procedures done without twilight anesthesia and three with it. The 11 procedures I had without it were very challenging with some discomfort. Since going to twilight anesthesiology, the procedure was as if it never happened. It was almost pleasurable. Liz, the anesthesiologist, is one of the most caring people I have met. The staff and two paramedics did a great job with my IV, virtually painless, when prepping me for the anesthesiologist. I am a diabetic and one time my sugar was crashing. Unless my sugar came up, my anesthesiologist would not allow me to be sedated. She injected me with a solution, which took me from 60 to 135 in a matter of three minutes. I felt much better and could continue the procedure. Other people may have not taken the time to correct the problem. This is what health care should be like everywhere. Dr. Ruiz always takes time to explain how the procedure is going to go and what exactly she is going to do so you feel comfortable. Dr. Pispidikis along with massage therapist Shelly called me on occasion outside regular visiting hours to make sure I was doing well. I was treated like a celebrity. I cannot say enough about the support staff. From the moment they take your name to the moment you leave their office, they make you comfortable and are considerate of your needs. They are supportive and encouraging, a phenomenal group of people. They are what all health care providers should be. I have never written a letter to any doctor, and I have been through a lot of them, but your staff are an exceptional. God Bless You.”
