"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."

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

- Sarah S.

"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."

"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.

"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.

"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.

"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)

“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.

“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.

"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.

"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.

"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.

“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.

"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.

"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.

"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.”
