When I came to Dr. Rattiner I was completely fed up with traditional medicine and as physically weak as I have ever been. I believe my internist incorrectly prescribed me the wrong blood pressure medication and this led to a host of issues: out of control migraine headaches with extreme aura symptoms, ringing in the ears, extreme neck pain, jaw pain, ocipital pain, trigeminal nerve pain, an electrolyte imbalance, low vitamin D, extreme fatigue, and other minor symptoms as well. I had been suffering for about seven months and had been sent to several specialists with very little relief other than heavy duty pain relievers, which was not what I was looking for.
To my great relief, Dr. Rattiner mapped out a plan and a goal towards healing and ultimately renewed health. In other words, he did not plan on seeing me forever. I was not a dollar bill sign; I was a human being. He gave me quality and affordable vitamins and digestive enzymes to take to rebuild my immune system and help my body's ability to absorb nutrients correctly. In the meantime, his wonderful and professional staff assisted me in his very strategic plan for my body's recovery. Half-way through I have seen amazing results! I would say I am 75% towards the goal we set. My headaches have virtually disappeared. My neck pain is gone. The ringing in my ears rarely occurs. The jaw pain was corrected after one appointment, which in turn fixed the trigeminal nerve pain! The vitamins and enzymes corrected my nutritional deficiencies and imbalances. I know by the end of Dr. Rattiner's plan I will be as good as new (if not better), and I am so grateful for that.
I would encourage anyone who is suffering to give your body the chance to experience holistic healing. It is so much healthier and effective than traditional medicine, at least it has been for me.
From my initial visit until I finished treatments I never experienced anything but friendly, helpful service. Everyone always had a smile andDr. Rattiner provided me with complete information regarding my problem and a clear understanding of the proposed treatments. After my first treatment procedure and on the way home I could notice a very improved feeling in my back. Dr. Matt and his magic activator worked wonders for me. Thanks so much!
The comments I had received from a friend about Dr. Rattiner and his practice were exactly "right on" and I haven't regretted setting up my appointment. They have done wonders for me and I have all the confidence that Progressive Healthcare can and will do the same for anyone who chooses their services..
Business Name is now Progressive Healthcare of Gwinnett
For so many years I had been skeptical of the chiropractic practice. But the pain in my back had become so severe that I was willing to try anything! I tried it and I'm so glad I did! I'm feeling so much better-truly a "happy backbone" now. Thank you, Dr. Rattiner & Dr. Matt etc!
Great treatment, Awesome staff! – I started going to chiropractors in 1991 due to a strained neck work injury. Each different chiropractor that I have gone to used the same method without really focusing on my exact problem until I got to Align the Spine and Dr, Rattiner and his staff. I was feeling VERY bad in August of this year with swollen joints in my hands, elbows and ankles as well as red prickly skin. My regular doctor didn't help me at all, no cream, no anti inflammatory-nothing. So l picked a different Chiropractor on my way home and I just got the feeling that I was being hustled and herded around, especially when he wanted me to sign up for the treatment plan. I took my extremely overpriced xrays and told him l wanted a 2nd opinion. That's what brought me to Align the Spine, immediately just from talking to Vanessa, the receptionist, l knew I was in for a much better experience, and much more intensive care. Chiropractic care isn't "one size fits all" it is the exact opposite, it should be the most individual care that you can get, especially because they can pinpoint your source of pain and treat it accordingly. I am almost finished with my treatment plan and l will continue to go once or twice a month. Since l started with Align the Spine, l can tell you l sleep better, walk easier, seem taller, more alert, just from aligning the bad areas and blockages in my spine. I am middle aged and I used to dread dropping things at work because l was afraid l would have an incontinence moment bending down to get what ever it was-which is very embarrassing-l am too young for that. I actually pick up anything easier and don't worry about that happening any more. It is also easier for me to sit and get up without having to push on the table to raise up. Dr. Matt and Dr. Rattiner use the activator method primarily and I promise you that if you are skeptical-you won't be after treatment because it really works. Others who had used it on me didn't do it properly so it had no effect and I thought to myself-why are they even bothering with that?? Once you get treated properly with the activator you will feel the amazing difference.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED – I was suffering with symptoms of Sciatica, RLS (Restless Leg Syndrome), a gripping muscle spasm – better known as a “Charlie Horse” in the calf of my right leg, along with a deep penetrating “throb” similar to the worst toothache imaginable. My family Doctor gave me a shot of Lidocaine and sent me on my way. Within a few days – the pain was back and with a vengeance.
I received an interesting and timely newsletter in the mail from a neighborhood health & wellness center featuring an in-depth article on Sciatica, leg pain and literally everything I was experiencing. I met with their team of Doctors who determined 22 visits of Chiropractic care would provide the relief I so desperately needed.
Sadly, one week and three visits later, I was uncomfortable with the treatment. I did not agree with the “technique” the Chiropractor was using, which to me was a “BODY SLAM”! While he insisted I needed to relax – I insisted it was difficult to relax while “bracing” for a body slam! No way could I survive 22 Body Slams!
While on my way to the next appointment I spoke to a friend - Elizabeth. I told her where I was headed and how I was dreading it! She shared a similar Chiropractor horror story, but the good news was she had found a new Chiropractor who she loved! She told me he was wonderful, knowledgeable and nice. He sincerely cares and listens to his patients and most importantly he uses the ACTIVATOR tool & technique! She added; for a “Chiropractor” he knew a lot about women’s health issues too! His name was Dr. Rattiner. I’m a firm believer in “word of mouth” advertising and while she was yet speaking – I was SOLD! That evening I attended my last appointment and body slam with the health and wellness center.
I called Dr. Rattiner’s office and made an appointment for Monday morning. Over that weekend I received a missed call/voice message from Dr. Rattiner, calling to introduce himself, remind me of my appointment and conduct a brief pre-appointment consultation. Again – I was impressed!
As I sat in the Align the Spine office waiting my turn, I watched a gentleman escort patients young & old to the front desk with their charts in hand, offering them hope & giving them encouragement. Was this Dr. Rattiner – I wondered? Sure enough it was….the rest is history!
Everything my friend said about Dr. Rattiner was true! The same GREAT first impression has remained the “ongoing” impression! I’ve been seeing Dr Rattiner now for more than 8 weeks and I am well on my way to recovery, and he hasn’t body slammed me once! He and office partner Dr. Matt are two of the finest Chiropractors I have had the privilege and pleasure of being under their care. Not only are they excellent Doctors – their staff is exceptional too! With COMPLETE SATISFACTION and almost pain free, Dr. Rattiner has EXCEEDED my FIVE STAR expectations!
Great Place to Go To Be Healed – This place is a great escape from your normal Dr's office and much more friendly and helpful. I went to see Dr. Rattiner about a leg swelling issue that after going to my family Dr and test ran they could not figure out what was wrong. After one visit with Dr. Matt the swelling had gone down now the swelling is completely gone and I feel so much better. All the symptoms of pain I had is gone and plus they listen to you and help you in any way they can. It's a great place if you are tired of living with the pain and ready to be healed come here.
Well Worth the Visit – My husband has been in need of good Chiropractic care for a long time. He has seen 2 others. This is the first time that I know of that he has experienced such a quick turn around of results and getting on a better path for staying healthy. So much that I had been having issues with my foot. I started to go to Align the Spine as well and Dr. Rattiner and staff were delightful and very knowledgeable to deal with. I started feeling better after a week of treatments.
Thanks Align the Spine
I have not felt this great in at least a year!! – I have not felt this good in at least a year! I suffered from headaches at least 3 times a week! NO MORE at all! My lower back pain is gone. Also shoulder pain is getting better.
I was a real skeptic of trying chiropractic care. Not any more. Dr. Rattiner & Dr. Matt are the Best! I will do follow ups and stay healthy from now on.
Healing hands and compassionat heart – Dr. Rattiner is (in my opinion) a healer. His caring manner makes going there a pleasure - not to mention the fact that his maintenance program is the difference between having to deal with pain at every step and being able to enjoy my life. He keeps me moving. The entire staff is great! I recommend him to everybody!
