Best Chiropractor! – Everyone needs a good chiropractor and it's Doctor Joe! He's got the best healing hands ever. He spends alot of time with you and educate you. Highly recommends Dr. Joe.
I started coming to Spine Tree Chiropractic a few years ago. My experience here with Dr. Joe and staff was great. Dr Joe was extremely knowledgeable, professional and very kind. Dr. Joe took the time to explain my medical problems and discussed a treatment plan for me in a way that I could understand. They kept me informed, and the staff was extremely pleasant. The office has a great atmosphere. Every time I came in the first thing they wanted to know was how I was feeling and specifically where I was hurting, and if I was in pain. They made sure that my treatment would not compound the pain but lessen the pain. Over all I would rate my experience here an A plus and recommend Spine Tree Chiropractic to all of my family and friends and to anyone who has any type of pain. I am now pain free, and back to living to the quality of life before the injury.
Dr. Medlin provided wonderful care to me. I was diagnosed with spinal stenosis in September 2011 and was facing possible surgery. Fortunatly,after receiving treatments for pain and Dr. Joe's chiropractic therapy combined with massage,I made major improvements!!! The decision to avoid surgery at this point proved to be the right one for me. I could have not done it without the caring support from Spine Tree Chiropractic Ctr.I also came to understand and accept the importance of livelong selfcare in form of exercise and avoiding strenous movements. Dr. Medlin taught me well. and I am very grateful to him and his officemanager Krista
I have all the confidence in the world in Dr Medlin. He provides effective treatment, educates, and empowers in taking a pro-active role in my own health.
Pain Relief – I saw Dr Joe for a low back injury 3 years ago and, when I had an accident that aggravated my old injury, I didn't hesitate to go back to him. He takes care to loosen up the area with massage and stretches before he does any spinal adjustments. As a massage therapist, I understand the benefit of this as compared to other chiropractors who just get in there and attempt spinal adjustments without taking time to make sure the surrounding muscles and ligaments are relaxed enough to allow a successful adjustment. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr Joe's treatment approach.
In pain? Don't know what to do? – highest rating ever, 30 yrs of pop & go chiropractic, then dr. joe & his massage therapy, what a difference. if your in pain see the spine clinic first. 7 years involved with pain therapy (morphine) & now im drug free,The only thing I regret,is that it took a hit & run to get here. I'd rate a six out of five if I could!
Great Chiropractor! – I recently had excruciating lower back pain that lasted for over a month. I finally went to see my primary care physician who took x-rays and didn't see anything major. She told me that I likely had a major muscle strain. I commute by bike and she recommended stretching my legs better before and after my ride.
I asked her opinion on going to a chiropractor and was told that it can be quite helpful in a case like mine. She told me a good chiropractor wouldn't recommend more than 6 visits and to be wary if he or she suggested my injury was anything major.
I went to Spine Tree because it's in my neighborhood and had largely glowing reviews on here. (I don't know what the one bad review is all about. That guy...) Anyway, Dr Joe said exactly what my primary care doctor said and recommended 5 visits. I felt 80% after the first session. Everything he did and said made sense. He's personable and professional. The sessions consisted of massage, guided stretching, strength exercises and the adjustment. I just finished my last visit and the pain's gone.
One Of a Kind!!! – I too have been to many chiropractors over the years and a few in this past year in fact. The reviews on this site are spot on for the most part as he is something special. this is not an exaggeration, he's simply good.
There is no way anyone could walk away from a treatment by Dr. Medlin and write ANYTHING bad. I see someone did that, and I had to laugh. It was sooo far from reality it was disgusting. First of all the first thing I saw when I came into the office was a Receptionist. He is not a "One Man Show" as one reviewer noted.
Anyway, regarding the treatment: Perhaps the best adjustments i've ever received. This guy has AMAZING hands. He warms you up with some massage (which no other chiropractor ever did this) then proceeded to do some stretching and yoga exercises and then Adjusted me. I was on cloud nine.
I awoke with neck pain and this was nearly gone after the first visit. I followed his advice in using ice, rest and stretching. He recommended 5 visits for me and I enjoyed every single one of them. I was pain free at the end and went on my merry way.
I felt compelled to say something positive about this Doctor, because it is a blessing to have someone like this in the neighborhood: Alberta arts district. This guy is extremely knowledgeable, has been practicing on Alberta Street for like 7-8years and has been in practice i think for about 12.
I know this is long, but once you go to Dr. Joe, you'll never go to another chiropractor, i promise. Try him out and see if i'm wrong. I stand behind this man fully!
hope this helps in any decision making. its an easy decision though ;)
Auto Accident Relief – I've been to many chiropractors in my years and Dr. Medlin is one of the best i've seen. He is knowledgable and seems to know how to get you out of pain. What I really appreciated is that he taught me how to take care of my own back and prevent future injuries.
I recovered fully from my auto injuries and am doing very well now.
I couldn't recommend anyone better.
