"Dr Issa, I can't say enough how glad I am that I came to your clinic. Right from my first visit, I already felt the warmth and good care of your clinic. You have indeed healed my chronic back pain. I used to have a hard time bending, but now, I feel much more agile. My tennis is so much better and not to mention that I am more useful at the house. Thank you."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping me to have a better life with out pain. After a few visits to your office I have forgot about shoulder, back and neck pain.
And do not mention my horribles migraines that I have not had in a long time. Thank you."
"You and your staff, are doing a great job in helping your patients to get rid of their aches and pains. I can recall that I came in with the pain, in particular, and in just my first adjustment I was relieved of the pain. I'll gladly recommend you to my family and friends. I wish you success as you continue to help your patients enjoy a better quality of life. Thank you!"
"Thank you for taking care of us and helping us live everyday with less pain. You have been a true blessing!"
"Thank you very kindly for helping me to get rid of the terrible pain I had in my lower back. When I came to you I could hardly walk, sit or stand. The pain caused a swelling in the center of my lower back area, and caused the pain to radiate down to the botton of my feet. This was as the result of my lifting something heavy.
The professional treatment of physical therapy, vibromassage and traction with the chiropractic adjustment I am back to my normal state of walking, sitting and standing.
The pain is gone completely.
I will not hesitate to recommend you and your able staff to any one needing your service.
Thanks again and may God Bless you and all as you continue to serve humanity."
"I started therapy with Dr. Mona Issa over two years ago. I had been going for therapy for over ten years. I have to say that I never felt better. My back problems have faded and there little pain. My posture has improved. I stand taller and walk better. Never has this happened in my therapy. Dr. Mona Issa's natural approach to therapy and treating common illness problems has changed my life. Her staff is well trained and focuses on therapy.
Thank you for improving my condition."
"I have suffered most of my life from severe low back pain, and was living on drugs and pain killers before I came to your office. I have a herniated disc in my low back and the Drs wanted me to do a surgury. They kept increasing the doses of my medication until I was unable to work or think. I did not want to undergo the surgury. The first time I came to your office I was not able to walk or to even stand up straight. After a few weeks of treatment, my back pain went away. I did not do the surgury, I do not even need to take pain killers anymore. Now I still come every few weeks to get adjusted for maintenance and I brought my wife for her headaches and my son for his back pain. Thank you for helping us, you changed my life."
Q: What is Chiropractic?
A: Chiropractic is based on applying scientific fact to stimulating our body’s own remarkable resources. These important self-regulating and self-healing functions are through illness, injury or stress it can cause tissues and organs throughout the body to function poorly. Doctors call this degenerative chain reaction the vertebral subluxation complex. It is an underlying cause of many health problems.
With chiropractic’s hands-on, drug-free health care approach, millions have found a healthier lifestyle through diet, exercise and maintaining proper spinal function.
Q: How Can Chiropractic Help Me?
A: Injury, stress or chronic pain most often are the reasons people seek chiropractic care. Because chiropractic treats the underlying causes of these problems rather than just relieving symptoms, your body’s natural healing process work for you. The chiropractic approach to better health is to locate and help correct interferences to your body’s natural state of good health.
Today’s Doctor of Chiropractic is highly trained in identifying and evaluating functional problems associated with the spinal column and skilled in restoring proper spinal biomechanics and nerve function. With a program of regular spinal maintenance, many patients recover a degree of health and vigor greater than they enjoyed before their problem occurred.

Q: What is an adjustment?
A: When performing an adjustment your doctor applies precisely directed force to a joint that is “locked up” or not moving properly. Restoring normal motion to joints can Allow bones to gradually return to a more proper position and your body to function as it should. This safe, natural approach to removing interferences with spinal and nervous system function can improve your overall health.
This is not to say, however, that all adjustment are the same. Just as chiropractors are different individually, so are the many techniques. Usually the doctor’s hands or a specially designed instrument deliver a quick, therapeutic thrust to the affected joint. Other techniques however may require slow, constant pressure.
Based upon years of training and experience, and careful evaluation of your unique spinal problem, the doctor will recommend an individual program of care.
Q: How Does Adjustment Work?
A: To illustrate this principle, imagine a garden hose as a nerve and the water flowing through the hose as nerve impulses. When the hose is laid out straight without any kinks, water flows freely. If on the other hand the hose gets compressed or kinked, water flow is reduced or even stops. If this condition persists, eventually, the hose becomes damaged.
Like removing the kink from the hose, a spinal adjustment can ease pressure on a nerve, allowing nerve impulses to flow and protect the nerve from further damage.
Cavitation, a pop or click sound, is often heard or felt by the patient during the adjustment. Much like the opening of a carbonated soda can, cavitation is caused by a rapid release of air bubbles that have been under pressure within the joint. Cavitation occurs more often than not during an adjustment, but it does not have to occur for the adjustment to be effective.
Q: How long will I need chiropractic care?
A: Each patient is unique. Long-standing or neglected problems may require ongoing care to restore and maintain good spinal health. The truth is, you wouldn’t expect just one of the twenty pills of any prescription to produce a cure, so you shouldn’t expect only one adjustment to do that either. Healing takes time.
While some patients seek chiropractic care only when pain is unbearable, this “crisis” approach is often time-consuming, costly and uncomfortable. Most patients find that the best results come from a regular individual care program and periodic chiropractic checkups.
Discuss your expectations for care with your doctor and ask questions about how you can achieve optimum spinal health. It’s your decision.
Q: What Ages Benefit From Chiropractic Care?
A: All ages can enjoy healthier living through chiropractic care. For seniors, improved spinal function can mean better mobility, endurance, appetite, and an improvement in many age-related ailments. Children and even infants also can benefit. Because spinal trauma can occur at birth and later childhood activities also may cause spinal problems, most parents prefer to have their children checked regularly.
When the body is changing through growth or through aging, maintaining good spinal and nervous system health is especially important.
For all ages, the safe, natural chiropractic approach to health maintenance makes sense.
Q: Is chiropractic care safe?
A: Chiropractic has an excellent safety record. While it’s not unusual to hear of injuries from mis-prescribed drugs, drug overdoses, drug combinations and erroneous treatment in the medical profession, it is extremely rare to hear of a problem resulting from chiropractic care. According to a government study in New Zealand, chiropractic care was found to be “remarkably safe.”
Chiropractic doctors are trained to practice and perform hundreds to thousands of manipulations before delivering them to a patient. To become a Doctor of Chiropractic, the candidate must first pass the demanding National Board Examination. Then, to apply for a professional license the doctor must pass an even more rigorous test before winning the privilege to practice.
Guide by a through case history and examination, your doctor will evaluate your individual needs and determine a course of treatment. This conservative, natural approach to better health avoids the dangers associated with invasive procedures and addictive drugs.
Q: Do I have a pinched nerve?
A: Pain is usually the reason most patients consult with a Doctor of Chiropractic. Most patients have heard the term “pinched nerve” and, some may even know that it’s associated with pain, numbness, burning, or a “pins and needles” feeling. In truth, the compression lesion or pinched nerve is rare, causing only 10 to 15% of spine-related problems.
More often, pain comes from nerve tissues irritated by the rubbing, stretching or scraping of malfunctioning spinal joints. Such malfunctions can be caused by many everyday events including physical trauma or emotional stress. Chemical toxins can also affect the delicate tissues of the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Your doctor can determine the cause of your pain and the extent of your problem.
Q: Do I have a slipped disc?
A: Disc are the cartilage-like cushions occupying the spaces between spinal bones. Serving as spinal shock absorbers, they allow the back to turn and bend normally. Because each disc is attached to the vertebrae both above and below, there is no way for them to actually “slip” out of place. But trauma or injury to the spine can cause discs to tear, bulge, herniated or even rupture. The resulting pressure on surrounding nerve tissues can be intensely painful.
Each case is different so results cannot be guaranteed, however many patients have found relief in chiropractic care and are happy to avoid surgery or dependency on pain medication.
