"The once a month visits have kept my back from going out for 1 ½ years. I would recommend this schedule to everyone.
These treatments have helped me greatly, and when I do "over do it" my healing time and pain level are much lower than when I did not come once a month!"

"I used to have headaches daily, since I've started chiropractic treatments I may have a headache once a month. These treatments have made my daily life a lot easier.
Thank you Dr. Kohl and employees for helping me with my headaches. My family and students also appreciate your help because now I'm always in a better mood and headache free."
"I originally sought out chiropractic care because my neck was hurting so bad I couldn't sleep. Within several visits that was feeling much better and as I continued with maintenance visits over the years we dealt with other issues. My job as a programmer keeps me sitting for hours and I am not as active as I should be, so they've helped me through several mid and lower back issues. When my left shoulder start losing mobility, Dr Kohl got me doing therapy which got it moving again very quickly. That was during an especially busy time in my life and they were great working with my schedule. I've injured my knee twice and they've helped with that. I also believe that regular neck and wrist/hand adjustments have kept me from getting carpel tunnel. My hands used to ache, especially at night. I don't have much trouble with them now.I also suffered (and still do to a much lesser extent) a condition called Costochondritis(inflammation of the ribs and the cartilage in the ribcage). While I don't think chiropractic can cure it, I firmly believe it helps. Soon after I started chiropractic I stopped taking Celebrex which I had taken for about year.Very early on they recommended a massage session and I was hooked. The combination of a once a month adjustment and a once a month massage has been the right combination.
I believe chiropractic has a place in everyone's health care and Reynoldsburg Chiropractic has been a God-send for me."
One of the main causes of pain and disease in the human body can be traced to improper alignment of the vertebrae in your spinal column. This is called a subluxation. Through carefully applied pressure, massage, and manual manipulation of the vertebrae and joints, pressure and irritation on the nerves is relieved and joint mobility is restored, allowing your body to return to its natural state of balance, called homeostasis. Put another way, when the bones in your spine are allowed to go back to their proper positions, the nerve energy can resume its normal flow and your body's natural healing processes can function properly.
In general, proper chiropractic treatment of your body's lumbar, or lower back, region, involves very little risk and the rewards can be significant.
Chiropractic or osteopathic manipulations can be especially helpful in relieving pain for facet joint injuries, osteoarthritis, and sacroiliac joint dysfunction, because such conditions respond well to mobilization. Moreover, scores of patients with chronic headaches, sinus problems, high blood pressure, ear infections, leg pain, arthritis, and many other illnesses have reported significant relief after chiropractic therapy.
Increasingly over the past few decades, the medical community has come to accept and recognize chiropractic care as a valid form of treatment for a variety of neuro-musculoskeletal conditions, and as a conservative treatment option for patients with lower back pain. Moreover, many medical doctors recognize a chiropractic diagnosis and accept it as the first line of treatment for functional disorders of the entire musculoskeletal system.
Studies by leading medical journals in recent years have confirmed the benefits of chiropractic care:
- A 1993 report by the Ontario Ministry of Health concluded that chiropractic care was the most effective treatment for lower back pain. The agency also recommended that chiropractic care be fully integrated in the Canadian government's health care system.
- In 1994, the federal Agency for Health Care Policy and Research published its Clinical Practice Guidelines, which asserted that spinal manipulation was effective in reducing pain and speeding recovery among patients with acute low back symptoms without radiculopathy.
- A 1996 New England Journal of Medicine study of outcomes and costs for acute low back pain found that patients treated by chiropractors were significantly more satisfied than those who saw primary care, orthopedic or managed care practitioners.
- A 1996 study in the journal Spine echoed that study and found that patients who sought chiropractic care were more likely to feel that treatment was helpful, more likely to be satisfied with their care, and less likely to seek care from another provider for the same condition, compared to those who sought care from medical doctors.
- In 2001, the Center for Clinical Health Policy Research at Duke University concluded in a study that spinal manipulation resulted in almost immediate improvement for cervicogenic headaches, or those that originate in the neck, and had significantly fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension-type headache than a commonly prescribed medication.
