What Our Patients Are Saying

Kathy B. - Muscle Relaxers, Do Not Work as Well

“What was your main health concern that brought you to our office?
Neck pain, numbness in my arm and lower back pain.  I started seeing Dr Winget back in 1995 and was on a maintenace program when for one reason or another I stopped coming.  BIG MISTAKE.  My condition 5 years later was now worse then when I started back in 1995.

What type of previous care had you recieved for this condition?
I had taken over-the-counter pain relievers, and was treated for a pinched nerve and prescribed muscle relaxers.  Thats when I came back to Dr. Winget.

Describe your results under Dr. Winget`s care.
I no longer have any numbness in my arm.  The lower back pain has descreased and I no longer have the leg pain while standing on my feet for any period of time.
-Thank you Dr. Winget, I will never leave again!

(Kathy`s entire family is under care, and her twin children, who suffered from severe ear aches for many years, no longer have them, and some of the healthiest kids in their school)


Mary Alice H. - My back pain is almost down to zero

I was experiencing lower back pain before beginning the Lordex program. It would range from a 6 to 7 out of ten in pain. I was unable to do anything without my back hurting; standing, sitting, or sleeping, but the worst was standing. I could only stand for a few minutes sometimes before I had to sit down somewhere. I had already tried cortisone injections, physical therapy, oral steroids, and muscle relaxers. My doctor ruled out surgery and suggested chiropractic and/or acupuncture. I noticed my “rst major improvement, this past weekend, after around 3 weeks worth of visits. I am sleeping better, sitting is not as painful. Standing is better, but is sometimes still painful when I stand for more than a few minutes. I recently went on vacation, and my back felt great in the car. Typically, riding in the car would make it feel very stiff and painful. My back pain is almost down to zero, I would say it is 1 out of 10. Update at end of decompression program: I went shopping all day yesterday and was on my feet walking a lot. My back pain was non-existent, zero out of ten!


Michael - Spinal Decompression resolved my bulging disc

“I first came to Raleigh Specific Chiropractic with severe lower back pain. I could not get out of bed in the morning, or roll over in bed without excruciating pain. Walking was a chore. I was in constant pain. I was at my wits end. I had an MRI that showed a bulging disc in my back. The disc was pressing against the spinal cord. Raleigh Specific Chiropractic recommended spinal decompression. I had never heard of it before and was definitely leery. I decided to see an orthopedic doctor to seek a second opinion. Surgery was recommended. The thought of back surgery at 35 years old scared me.

Spinal Decompression was not surgery and that alone made me decide to give it a try. After one week into treatment I could not believe the progress! I was walking normally again with very little pain. As the weeks went by, I got stronger and stronger. I am no longer waking up in pain from rolling over in bed. I have resumed walking, biking, etc. again. My fitness level is even better than it was before I had the back issues. I am very grateful that Raleigh Specific Chiropractic gave me my life back.”


Michelle G. - Within two months, I was feeling tremendously better

“Growing up, I was a dancer. I danced for 13 years before I noticed the severe pain in my knees. It got so bad that I could barely walk up stairs, couldn’t kneel, and couldn’t exercise without pain. I ended up having two knee surgeries over the next year. Unfortunately, they didn’t solve the problem.

The pain increased and spread into my back, neck, and shoulders. The pain was so bad that simply touching my shoulders would make me cringe. I went to physical therapy for three years – no improvement. I tried acupuncture for 8 months – no improvement. My orthopedist finally sent me to a rheumatologist thinking it was something auto-immune. The doctor put me on heavy medications for patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis and even they didn’t touch the pain. She told me it was like I was a 23 year old in an 80 year olds body.

A friend who has been seeing Dr. Winget for years suggested I give chiropractic care a try. I was hesitant but was desperate. I was 23 years old and wanted to be able to exercise, wear high heels, kneel on the ground with my students, and dance with my friends.

So, I had an evaluation and started treatment. Within two months, I was feeling tremendously better. Now after 9 months, my back and neck pain is almost completely gone, and the treatment Dr. Winget has started on my knee s helping more than anything I’ve tried. Dr. Winget has been a true blessing to me, and I am so grateful to everyone at RSC for the support they have given me. I highly recommend chiropractic care to everyone, as I truly believe it can work miracles!”
