As an avid runner, I have always experienced lower pack pain and lived with this pain for most of my life. I figured if I stretched long enough I would eventually feel better. One of my coworkers brought up the idea trying a chiropractor for help. I had never been to a chiropractor before and was referred to Waterman Chiropractic Center from a friend.
I went in looking to fix my chronic back issues, and after examination found I had issues in my hip and neck. Once adjusted, I was amazed how much more range of motion I had in my hip and lower back.
The next day I was able to increase my running mileage by 3 miles and recorded a personal best in average pace. I couldn't believe I had been living with all that pain for so long. I literally feel like a new man!
I have suffered from chronic sinus infections and migraine headaches for years. After enduring one sinus surgery, only to have the pain return 10 fold, I was desperate to find relief. One afternoon, after spending the entire day in bed with a pillow over my head trying to stifle the pain, I called a friend who's husband is a chiropractor out of the area. She said that when he needs adjustments, he goes to see Dr. Waterman. That in itself was a great recommendation, so I called and made an appointment for the next day. From the moment I walked through the door, I was greeted warmly and felt very comfortable.
That was just a few months ago and since then, I have only had one mild headache! The Waterman team is extremely caring and have gone out of their way to not only stop my pain, but have also taught me techniques (that I can do myself) to prevent the headaches from returning. That to me is just above and beyond amazing! I can honestly say that the Waterman Chiropractic Team has changed my life and I will be forever grateful.
This place is great, especially for those "newbies" who have never been to a chiropractor before -- or do not believe in Chiropractic care.
I was referred here by one of my friends at my gym as well as my fiance who had major jaw (TMJ) and flexibility issues (couldn't lift his arms above his head all the way).
ANYWAY! I made my first appointment, and the staff was super nice, friendly, and explained everything in depth. I was amazed at how nice everyone was in the office. They answered all my questions, and even went above and beyond explaining how to submit chiropractic claims to my insurance.
They were incredibly thorough and explained how chiropractors work, explained what they do and don't do, and made me feel at ease. Before he adjusted me, he would explain what I would feel and experience. I wish the rest of my doctors would talk this much!!
He has made me feel like a different person!! I now have more flexibility at the gym, my daily headaches are gone, and I no longer have constant lower back pain.
I was referred to Waterman Chiropractic Center in July of 2007 by a colleague from work. My severe back pain and spasms had been occurring intermittently for the last 10 years but my most recent episode started about 4 months prior to seeing Dr. Waterman and I was in constant pain. I had previously tried physical therapy, massage, stretching, Advil and rest without relief. Since beginning treatment with Dr. Waterman, I have enjoyed a swift and profound improvement in my quality of life. After the first adjustment I was feeling 50% better and I had full relief of pain within the following 4 weeks. Since then I have adopted regular chiropractic adjustments, cycling and strengthening exercises. I can enjoy my life at home and concentrate on my work without pain. In addition to my regular adjustments, I have benefited from light therapy, kinesio tape and soft tissue release on the plantar fascitis in both my feet. My experiences with the staff and doctors at Waterman Chiropractic Center were very organized, positive and professional.

I've been a patient at Waterman Chiropractic Center for the last 4 months. My daughter in law is a chiropractor and she insisted that I be evaluated at Waterman Chiropractic Center last year. Before I became a patient I had grabbing, searing pain in my upper buttocks and hips when I was standing, sitting, or laying down. I was taking between 2 and 6 Advil per day for the pain in order to continue participating in my various activities. My pain started about 10 years ago and has gotten steadily worse over the years. The only previous treatment I had tried was therapeutic massage along with regular exercise and stretching without any lasting relief. My first impression of the office was a friendly, concerned staff. Both doctors performed a comprehensive and thorough history and exam. They expected at that time that my pain was fixable! Since being adjusted regularly, I am largely pain free. I rarely take pain medication and I feel more flexible. I was amazed because I stared to feel the results of the chiropractic care almost immediately. I am now enjoying tennis, golf, and jazzercise without pain or the fear of pain. I sleep better and overall I feel much healthier. I am impressed with the variety and effectiveness of the techniques used in the office. I always feel confident that any symptoms can be dealt with!
I use to get headaches 3-4 times a week, and always had constant neck and shoulder tightness. Within a week of going to Waterman Chiropractic my tightness subsided and my headaches were gone.
The staff is very friendly and does everything to help you have a whole body healthy lifestyle. I have been to other chiropractors in the past and did not get the level of service and total body health as I do from Waterman Chiropractic.
