Testimonials from Patients With Upper Extremity Pain

When I came in for care I was experiencing severe neck and arm pain for about two weeks. I also had similar symptoms earlier in the 2000’s which were treated successfully with chiropractic. The symptoms had stayed away for a significant amount of time, but then returned unexpectedly.

My results so far at Choice Chiropractic and Wellness Center have been very good to excellent and have no pain anywhere as I am writing this. I will recommend them to anyone who is complaining of pains I suspect are vertebral related! I also like Dr. Schnelle’s sense of humor; it helped me to not despair at beginning of treatment, when pains were persistent.*


I first saw Dr. Schnelle because of neck pain shooting into my upper back on the left. I had been dealing with it for 16 years and it was continuing to get worse. Temporary help in the past was provided by massage, stretching and Advil. It was getting to the point where the pain was interfering with social activities and exercising.

My symptoms have greatly improved since beginning treatment and I am always treated very well by the staff. When recommending Dr. Schnelle to others I tell them that he is a really cool, nice guy and does a good job.*


I came in for care for my neck and back pain, and left hand numbness, which was later determined to be due to Degenerative Disc Disease and spinal misalignment. I also had other symptoms, which included sinus issues, fatigue, shortened concentration span and insomnia. I previously saw a neurologist for my symptoms, unfortunately with no results. I also saw an acupuncturist, which did provide some minimal but temporary relief.

I was always treated politely and professionally by the staff at Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center. The best part about my care is the restoration of my spinal integrity to the best it can be. There is nothing that I didn’t like about my care. It has been a very positive experience all in all.*


I came in to Choice Chiropractic and Wellness Center with numbness and weakness in my lower left arm, wrist and hand, primarily between my index finger and my thumb. I called Dr. Schnelle first thing on Monday morning after the symptoms occurred. He was so kind and was able to schedule me for an evaluation that day!

After only a few weeks the numbness in my hand went away and my strength came back. The occasional lower back pain has pretty much been completely eliminated and I am seeing positive results in the natural curvature of my neck. I would highly recommend Dr. Schnelle. He takes his time with each patient to really understand their problems and symptoms so he can recommend the right care program. He is an expert in his field and certainly goes above and beyond with his patients.*
