Patient Testimonials


"I have been seeing Dr. Wood for a couple months now for an injury which occurred at work.  Dr. Wood and the entire staff are very knowledgeable, caring, supportive and friendly.  Dr. Wood has invested himself in my treatment as much as I have and has given me great encouragement to keep up the proper treatments required to heal my body.  Doctor Wood's wife is very involved in the office and is equally as kind and gentle as any of the staff.  Each time I go to visit I am very comfortable and the environment is uplifting.  If you are searching for a true chiropractor with extensive knowledge and experience, go no further.  Dr. Wood's chiropractic care is truly the best in Durango!!!" 

Tani,  Durango



"I suffered from leg and back pain for over 3 years.  I had tried everything medically, injections, ablation, physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, and acupuncture without lasting relief.  I tried Dr. Ridgway after hearing about decompression therapy and was desperate to find relief.  To my surprise, the combination of decompression, laser, and chiropractic I am able to live pain free again."  

Jane B., Bayfield


"Best headache relief I have found in the four-corners area!"

Sarah S., Cortez


"I had pain and numbness in my right arm and hand for over a year and was headed for cervical fusion after all other treatments had failed.  I have been under the care of Dr. Ridgway for just 6 weeks and now I am pain free."

Susan W., Durango


"Finally a solution for my chronic SI problem, Thanks Dr. R."

Lisa, Aztec


"I recently injured my knee skiing and was evaluated by my primary doctor.  He wanted to do an MRI and refer me to a surgeon.  When I asked if there was another less expensive option, he told me to try laser therapy with Dr. Ridgway.  Just 6 visits later I was out of pain.  Thanks, Dr. Ridgway."

John P., Durango

"In 2010 I was in a serious auto accident that left me with severe whiplash and a major disc herniation at C5/C6.  This has resulted in years of pain and it started to create weakness in both of my arms.  I thought I had tried all options and was headed for surgery, until I met Dr. Ridgway.  The combination of decompression and laser therapy got me on the course of natural pain relief.  Now I just do wellness care one time a month and I have remained pain free for the last two years."

Lynne T., Durango

"I only trust Dr. Ridgway with the treatment of my migraines, because he used to have them as well, and knows how to treat them."

Sean S., Durango



Condition: Back Pain

 "I wanted to sincerely thank you for straightening out my back before the Olympics.  What you did fixed my back and saved my Olympics!  I didn't have a single problem with my back after that.  I cant express how grateful I am for your help.  I wouldn't have been able to race at the Olympics without it.  Thanks again, and take care."

 -Lanny B. (2010 USA Olympic Biathlon Team)


Condition: SI Joint Pain

"Thank you Dr. Wood for helping me get back on the ice pain free!  Chiropractic has given me great relief in my lower back while both skating and lifting.  You have played a key role throughout my college hockey career, thanks again!"

-Sara M.

Condition: Headache, neck pain, and numbness  

"Several years ago I visited a chiropractor and walked out thinking "that was a waste of time and money!"  This year, after a constant headache, severe pain in my neck, and numbness in one arm--I decided to try chiropractic again (albeit with a new doctor!).  I noticed relief after the firs treatment, as I am nearing the end of my treatment I am so glad I tried this again.  Dr. Wood has helped my body heal and given me tools to keep it healthy!"

- Audra S.



Condition: Headache, sleepless nights, and dizziness

"My neck, arm & shoulders have been a mess causing many bad headaches, sleepless nights, and dizziness from all my pain.  I have been in to see many chiropractors and they never seemed to do much for my pain.  I was referred to Dr. Chris Wood from my work comp doctor. Dr. Wood, you have and still have been the Only One that has helped me with my pain and dizziness.  Thank you for caring!"

- Lucille M.




Condition: General Spinal Subluxations

 "I've been seeing chiropractors for over 30 years and Dr. Wood is the best by far!  He not only keeps my spine in alignment, but also my jaw, hands, and feet.  I have never had to see another doctor for back pain, TMJ, or carpal tunnel symptoms.  He takes care of them all!  He also is a great guy.  My advice: Start chiropractic care when you're young."

-Marta B.



Condition: General Spinal Subluxations

"Our Gracious Lord has blessed Dr. Wood with the art of healing our torn bodies.  Additionally, he has gifted Dr. Wood with care and compassion to heal our bruised emotions.  His great office stave have worked diligently to build relationships with insurance companies to assist with the financial portion of care at Wood Chiropractic.  For all these combined great talents of these caring individuals, I am appreciative".

-Jane G.



Condition: Degenerative Joint Disease

"My 90 day chiropractic care program, which was fine tuned by Dr. Wood, with x-rays and a plan, was just what I needed.  I had been taking 10-15 Advil tabs per day at my very worst. My quality of life was terrible. Sometimes, we are not good listeners and want a quick fix.  I was one of those people.  I have never felt this empowered physically & mentally since I finally committed to the care that I deserve.  Thank you Dr. Wood and Staff!"

-Ann B.


Condition: Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction 

 "I came to see Dr Wood after over 20 years of chronic pain. I had back, neck, hip, and TMJ issues. After just one adjustment I had substantial relief and after 6 weeks of adjustments (2-3 times a week). I have not felt better in 22 years. What Dr. Wood did is truly miraculous. He not only helped me physically but mentally as well. He changed my life completely, and I cannot thank him and his staff enough. God bless this office, I am forever grateful."

- Jim H



Condition: General Spinal Subluxations

 "I found Dr. Wood in 2012 after a ski injury. At first I did not really commit any time towards visiting him until this summer when I hit a wall of pain. Before chiropractic, discomfort was a constant and steady theme in my life. 


Throughout the treatment, my mood, flexibility, and overall well being has been shifting in an upward direction! Overall, I feel that I walk away with tools that I will use for the rest of my life. Thanks Dr. Wood!"

- Stacey T.



Condition: Loss of Cervical Curve, Degenerative Disc Disease

 "I come to see Dr Wood because of severe nerve pain headaches. My family doctor had put me on heavy duty pain medications and nerve blockers that had unpleasant side effects. After just two visits to Wood Chiropractic, my headaches were gone and I was able to discontinue the medication. I am thrilled with my lack of pain and it affected the benefit of improved posture and appearance."

- Allisa O.



Condition: Sciatic nerve pain, shoulder pain

After having previous, negative chiropractic experience, it was heartening to be referred to Dr. Chris Wood. Professional from the beginning, he made it clear that chiropractic healing takes time: Patient history, consultation, and X-rays come first, then a treatment plan.  He told me, "we are waking up the doctor within"-- what a great concept; setting me up to be so largely a part of my own healing. The patient 'working with' instead of being 'done to'. Encouraging, proactive! That he is a fellow believer is icing on the cake for me.

 I recommend Dr. Wood without hesitation: competent, experienced, caring and Christian. God bless him and his staff.

-Heidi N.



Condition: Low Back Pain

Thanks to Dr. Wood and his treatment plan, I am no longer in pain everyday! Throughout the treatment and with the recommended stretches I have noticed a remarkable improvement in mobility and lessened pain!

-Savanna B.



Condition: Knee Pain

Before I met Dr. Wood I was taking Advil on a regular basis for my pain. I couldn't walk down stairs without holding handrails and had issues working out due to my knee pain.  My treatments with Dr. Wood has helped restore my knee strength, reduce my pain, and I no longer take Advil!  I am very grateful for his support and guidance back to a better me!!

- Lesley W.



Condition: Lower Back Pain

“Dry Needling! It has been amazing.  My low back pain is gone after two treatments, and I have gone to chiropractors all my life.  I am truly a believer, and I have even had cortisone injections (with not as much relief.)”

-Victoria M.



Condition: Fractures and Scoliosis

“In December of 2013 I started seeing Dr. Ridgeway about chronic back pain due to three separate back fractures and scoliosis of the lower back. He looked at my X-rays and wondered how I could even walk.  I was in incredible pain with a drop foot on my left side.  I was and still am a very active Nordic skier and bike rider.  His exact words to me after examining me were ‘Don’t stop what you are doing, because if you do, the shit will hit the fan.’ He started with three days a week to straighten my back.  After that, we went down to once a week, and now I am seeing him one time per month.  I no longer have as much pain, no drop foot, and am very pleased with what he has done for me and my health.  I highly recommend him and his staff.  Thank you so much.”

-Allen S.



Condition: TMJ

"I came to see Dr. Ridgway a few months back because my jaw was in chronic pain for almost 5 years.  I thought he was going to tell me I had TMJ and that I was going to need massive surgery. Instead, he sat me down with my x-rays, told me I wasn’t going to need surgery but instead to make a treatment plan. Now, just 3 months later I am completely pain free, am not (thank goodness) drinking out of a straw and my jaw is tracking perfectly.  I can now sleep much better and in turn have an all around happier, healthier life.” 

-Alycia E.



Condition: Severe back pain

"Before chiropractic I was having severe back and leg (sciatic) pain. This pain happened after I was hit by a truck and was dragged 75 feet to save my granddaughter.  After the incident I had a 5% chance to live.  When starting chiropractic I was at a 15 out of 10 pain scale.  I was referred by a friend but put it off.  But I finally got in and my pain went down to a 3 out of 10. I was also able to stop wearing my leg brace, which I had worn for 9 years.  I now come in once a month and I am no longer in pain. I would recommend Dr. Ridgway to anyone.”

-Jim L.



Condition: Shingles

"5 days after coming down with Shingles, I was in Dr. Ridgway’s office for a routine back adjustment.  Upon seeing my shingles, he suggested I try laser treatments.  At the time I was in a great deal of pain, so was happy to give it a try! After two treatments in a week, my pain was a little less.  After 4 treatments (2 weeks) my pain was nearly gone and the actual shingles had decreased in size.  By the third week and the last 2 treatments, my pain was totally gone, and 1 little scab was left.  All in all, my shingles lasted barely 4 weeks, which is a miracle according to the horror stories I’ve heard about Shingles!  I am so pleased with the laser treatments, and would recommend them without reservation!” 

-Judie S.



Condition: Lower Back Pain

“When I first came into see Dr. Ridgeway, I had lower back pain and restricted range of motion in my right shoulder.  After many weeks of treatment, I am not experiencing lower back pain and I have better range of motion in my right shoulder.  Dr. Ridgeway is the best chiropractor I have ever been to for treatment.”

-Kathleen M.



Condition: Neck and Back Pain

"I come in one time a month for regular adjustments and it totally makes a difference in my neck and back PLUS the dry needling treatment for my wrist was AMAZING. My husband and I come here and just adore Dustin!!!"

-Margaret P.



Condition: Neck and Back Pain

"I came in barely able to walk.  With a few treatments, I was able to get moving again.  I’ve been coming here regularly and have been noticing improvements ever since.  Thanks!”

-Sam D.



Condition: Sciatic Pain

"I first came in to see Dr. Ridgway for sciatic pain.  This pain left me moving slower and sometimes not at all. Through the first few treatments I was skeptical, due to the pain not leaving.  After the first 4 treatments I started to have less pain.  Now at this point I am almost free of pain.  Love the rollers and the decompression table. Thanks Doc.”
