Upper Back Pain and Chiropractic Care Testimonials

I first saw Dr. Schnelle with moderate dull middle back pain and sore/achy muscles. For 6 months I had been experiencing this issue before seeking help. I sought no other treatments prior to seeing Dr. Schnelle. My results at Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center have been great. I feel like normal again. Treatment by the staff was excellent, friendly and caring. Dr. Schnelle is a doctor with excellent bedside manners. He listens intently, doesn’t rush you, and provides options.*


I came to Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center with a 2-3 year history of experiencing severe stiffness and pain due to overuse of muscles. I felt it in the neck, right shoulder, right forearm, mid-back, and lower back. I am a professional musician and use my upper body for 5-6 hours per day practicing in uncomfortable/unnatural positions. Other forms of treatment I received in the past include massage, Tae Kwon Do, and muscle relaxers – only provided temporary relief.

I had never seen a chiropractor before and since I started seeing Dr. Schnelle my pain is 100% gone, 80-90% of my stiffness has disappeared, my sinuses have improved (which is not a bad thing for a wind player), I can hear better and most important of all I can control the pain and stiffness now.*


I was experiencing neck, upper back and shoulder tightness and discomfort when I first saw Dr. Schnelle. I had been dealing with these symptoms for at least 6 years. Previous treatment included physical therapy, massage and chiropractic which all provided temporary relief.

I was always treated great by the staff and Dr. Schnelle’s humor and enthusiasm is a bonus. I have achieved overall improvement and relief. Most importantly my results have maintained well. I was impressed by Dr. Schnelle’s application of his knowledge and how far more extensive and effective his treatment was for me as compared to other chiropractors I had seen. Dr. Schnelle is professional and gives exceptional treatment while making you feel comfortable.*


I had moderate-severe upper back and shoulder blade area pain on both sides when I first saw Dr. Schnelle. It was a daily occurrence for around 4-5 months before seeking help. I also noticed radiating numbness into my fingertips and thumb in my left hand about once per week.

My results have been great. I no longer have any pain and I am sleeping better and feeling better. I was always treated excellent by the staff at Choice Chiropractic & Wellness Center. What I like most about the care I have received is the personal aspect and friendliness. I would completely recommended them to anyone seeking great natural care.*
