Sciatic Pain Patient

Rodi V

Awesome experience with Dr. Glackin! Having some sciatic and low back problems for years. He diagnosed my problem through thorough analysis of what was and was not giving me pain and altered his treatment based on how I was feeling. After 10-15 minutes of dry needling and massage, my back and nerve problems were nearly eliminated. Extremely personable and polite. HIGHLY recommend! Thanks, Doc!!!

I called and managed to get a same day appointment with Emily. She zeroed in on my back pain issue immediately and I left an hour later with some well needed relief.
