What people are saying:

“I’ve seen four different physios (2 in the US and 2 in Australia), and these guys were just simply amazing! Deanne did a thorough assessment of my injury and quickly identified my back problem and got to work on it straight-away. My recovery was immediate and I made significant improvements. Within a few visits I was 100% better!”
Bob N.
“Since having a broken back over twenty years ago, I have seen over a hundred physical therapists, physiatrists, and specialized pain doctors. None have been as helpful as Alton and Deanna and their staff. They treated me top to bottom, and spent careful time assessing every dysfunctional area of my body, giving me more information about what was broken and why, and how to get past it than I have ever gotten before. The home exercises are effective and gets results.”
Johanna F.
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Ching now for about 10 months. Prior to that, I went through dozens of rounds of PT in several different clinics in several different towns. Dr. Ching is hands down the best! I have severe chronic back pain, and Dr. Ching single handedly got me through a very challenging pregnancy, during which he was the only person I would have trusted to do manual manipulation on my back. He is very caring and incredibly knowledgeable, I wouldn’t go to anyone else.”
