â€œThe pain is gone! I am able to do so many tasks now without any pain or discomfort that I could never do previously. I have had such positive and changing results in just six weeks! I feel so much better and holistically more healthy.â€?
March 17 - 21, 2009 5 Days Intensive Treatment
Dr. Dolly Garnecki was extremely helpful and encouraging throughout my scoliosis treatment. The next day, I was feeling significantly better, and I also noticed that my breathing was improved. I could take deeper and fuller breaths than before I started treatment. I was so amazed! After a week of scoliosis treatment, my back felt straighter; I had more flexibility; and I felt I had less pressure on my hips and low back. By the end of the week the pain in my upper back and knee pain were completely gone! Now I know there is a true solution to scoliosis without surgery.

â€œI came to see Dr. Dolly because I was suffering from migraines several times a week and taking 3 different prescription medications for them. Because of my scoliosis, I had low back pain, and limited flexibility. After receiving treatment, I haven't had a migraine in several months. I saw Dr. Dolly prior to my U.S. Pole Dance Federation Eastern Regional Pole competition. I was about to compete against women from Cirque due Soleil, elite gymnasts, and professional dancers from across the eastern seaboard, and my body was falling apart! The days leading up to the competition, I wasn't physically able to train to the level that I needed. After getting neck, back, shoulder, and hamstring treatment at Spinal Health & Wellness, I was able to complete my last minute training requirements and give a 110% effort during my competition performance. It was my best performance to date!â€?

Before I began my scoliosis treatment, I had so many pains and problems with my back. I felt like I was the only person on the face of this planet with this problem. After a few weeks of treatment, I started to notice extremely large changes. My breathing became better, my clothes were getting more comfortable, and my favorite, the part of my back that was uneven started to level!

Before I started treatment with Dr. Dolly, I had severe chronic pain in my neck and shoulder resulting from a series of injuries over the past ten years. After my first adjustment, I felt euphoric! The vast majority of my pain was relieved within the first three visits. It is now several months later. Three weeks after completing my treatment plan, I still have much less discomfort than before I began.

â€œAfter a month of treatment, I felt better standing for longer periods of time. I used to be able to stand for one hour at a time, and now I can stand for 3 hours without pain! I sleep much better at night, and for longer periods of time. I don't wake up with low back pain in the morning, like I felt before I began treatment. Soreness in upper ribs is dramatically reduced. Before treatment, I would have soreness in the upper right ribs after working at the computer at work for about an hour. Now, I have no pain in my ribs at all when working at the computer. After 6 weeks of treatment, my low back pain has resolved completely! Now, my energy levels are increased, and I can do my job without low back pain."
March 9 â€“ April 27, 2010
After two weeks, my hips feel free and loose, and the best they've felt in 10 years. Two months after beginning treatment, I went to a cocktail party, and I was able to stand for two hours without pain. Prior to treatment, I'd feel uncomfortable after 45 minutes.

“Dr. Dolly, I really want to thank you for all you did for me this past week. It was a long, hard week for me. It dawned on me that I did not voice how grateful I am for all the time and effort you put in on my behalf. This IS my only alternative to surgery, and I am now hopeful that I may be able to avoid it altogether if I keep working and get regular access to care. On top of the curve improvement, you have made a big difference in my life already in another way—this is the first time I’ve ever stuck to an exercise program, ANY exercise program, for more than a day or two, and it’s been a whole week! May not sound like much, but it’s one week down, 12 to go to get to the 90 day point. Before any of this, I didn’t think I could do it. But guess what—I CAN! It is great to have a goal, and I feel like I may actually be able to reach it.”
