I have battled lower back and leg pain for years. I have been through traditional physical therapy and prescription medications for pain and inflammation yet I still had chronic pain that was affecting my daily life. I had just accepted that I would always be in pain. Finally, I decided to give chiropractic care as my last resort. What attracted me to Dr. Dunham was that he is not just a chiropractor but also a physical therapist AND a nurse. Within the first month of seeing Dr Dunham twice a week I was able to perform my daily functions with little to no pain. I would and have recommended him to family and friends suffering from back pain.

I  went in for my first visit to deal with horrible sciatic pain on my right side. Within two visits, my pain was significantly minimized. I was able to function over the holidays without noticeable issues. By the third visit, that pain had subsided significantly. Now we’re concentrating on the pain in my feet and knees while working to control the sciatic nerve.

 

I’ve never had to wait to be seen by the doctor. He’s the first doctor who makes me feel that my time is as valuable as his. Dr. Dunham has an upbeat personality and takes the time to ensure that you understand
what’s happening to your body and what measures he’s going to take to make you feel better. He and his staff are respectful and enjoyable to be around. Truly, they have been an unexpected gift to my general wellbeing.

I have been seeing Dr. Dunham on a regular basis for the past 6 months. His advice and work with me has been very beneficial in improving the pain and tightness in my back and hamstrings that I was feeling. I am now back to normal exercise levels and pain free. I still see him on a monthly basis and appreciate/respect his advice on a number of health issues that afflict people like me.

I would not go anywhere else!!!! His whole office makes you feel at home. Dr. Dunham is amazingly skilled not only as a chiropractor but also as a physical therapist. I walked in, told him my symptoms and he knew exactly what was wrong. I started receiving treatment and immediately felt relief. I would highly recommend a consultation with him. Don’t live in pain call and make an appointment to go see Dr. Dunham.

I was referred to Dr. Dave back in 1996/1997. As early as high school, I had debilitating pain in my mid back interfering with daily functioning. I ignored it for years and eventually found Dr. Dave. I am happy to say I am without mid back pain any more. I respect and trust Dr. Dave more than any Dr. I have ever come in contact with. He is the most thorough, patient and committed Dr. I know. He takes the time to explain things in terms we can all understand. Over the years, Dr. Dave began treating my family as we evolved and started treating both our daughters since birth. We are blessed to have him in our lives and would recommend him to anyone.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Doctor D. and his wonderful staff. Going to the doctor encompasses two important rules for me and my family.

  • #1 The doctor has to be excellent.

  • #2 The staff must be efficient and friendly.

Here at Heath 1st – the combination is spot on. Doctor D. has helped my neck and shoulder pain like no other doctor has been able to manage. Jenny (staff) is always kind, considerate, efficient and friendly. It is like being welcomed home to get help.

I have had two rib resections due to Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. I have not found another doctor who could bring relief from the tension and alignment issues I face due to this condition. However, Doctor D takes the time to help my body respond favorably to the adjustments.

I feel great when I see Doctor D on a regular basis!

I STRONGLY recommend everyone see him… he can help you enjoy your life!!!!!

During a workout at the gym, I was stricken with severe pain shooting down my legs that left me barely able to walk and at times unable to stand. After spending tens of $1000’s in costly surgeries, pain killers, and seeing several back specialist I was still limping around and in severe pain. Luckily a new family doctor referred me to Dr. Dunham. I saw results within weeks and was able to walk without a limp after 8 therapy sessions and some home exercise.

After recovering from my condition, my employer changed to an HMO health plan and I started seeing their in network chiropractor/therapist. Severe pain and my limp returned after 3 months and I decided it wasn’t worth going through my insurance company and went back to Dr. Dunham. After a few treatments, he had me back on the right track.

Although I still have occasional pain and soreness, I am able to manage it with Dr. Dunham’s help. I will be forever grateful to Dr. Dunham for helping me where other surgeons, doctors and chiropractors failed miserably.
