Back Pain - Fibromyalgia

Back Pain - Headaches & Numbness

In July of 2003, I was referred to Dr. DeSautel by my best friend who was getting great results. The conditions I experienced on a regular basis were headaches, neck, shoulders, and low back pain, and mid-back tightness. At times, my fingers and toes would go numb. Over the years, medical doctors had injected drugs next to my spine, others had suggested medication. Prior to Dr. DeSautel, I had been to several chiropractors and had received adjustments, some good and others that made me wonder why they were practicing. Once I started care with Dr. DeSautel, I received immediate relief but also continual improvement. The combination of Dr. DeSautel’s expertise, traction, fulcrums, exercises and educations have all contributed to not only a lack of pain but an overall sense of wellness. All the exercise, weights, running, diets etc. will never replace chiropractic and a healthy spine - they are supplements to it.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. DeSautel and staff. It’s a pleasure to walk into such a positive atmosphere knowing that you and your health are important. I feel good, energetic and my spine now has curves, like it should in all the right places!

Back & Neck Pain - Muscle Spasms

Once upon a time, there was a very crooked girl who was experiencing muscle spasms in her neck. One day at work, my neck locked up when I was changing the music on the stereo. By the time I got home, I couldn’t move. I have had pain in my neck and shoulders for countless months, probably due to poor sleeping positions and bad posture. One day it all came to a point. Honestly, it was the Rhino that I passed by for months, (and the location) that made me limp into Dr. DeSautel's office. I was just so tired of being a cow; I was going to charge my butt into health! Almost immediately, I saw changes. After two adjustments I could move my neck again! Mobility is a good thing. I was given daily exercises to do at home, and awesome warm-up exercises to do before my adjustments. An appointment with Dr. DeSautel is like a whole wellness session. Since starting my visits, I have so much more energy. I also feel taller, and I feel really good about my health. I would absolutely recommend her to my closest family and friends (as well as someone I pass on the street). I think everyone can benefit from such a positive environment. THANK YOU!!

Back Pain - Nutrition

Being a Nurse Practitioner, I am very particular about my healthcare providers, and Dr. Robyn is the best chiropractor I have seen. In the two weeks I have seen Dr. Robyn, she has helped me regain strength, flexibility and has given me nutritional guidance.

Back Pain - Stiff Neck

My lower back pain has completely gone away. I can move my neck its full range of motion, my flexibility has improved, and my posture is so much better. I feel more positive about facing life's challenges without constant pain.

I have no more numbness, and my hand is stronger. I sit up straighter, no longer have headaches, and my neck is not as stiff. I have a more positive attitude.

Back Pain

Whoever gets to experience Dr. Robyn is so lucky! She has served our family for over 10 years. My daughters' severe food allergies have been greatly improved by seeing Dr. Robyn.

I really appreciate the HUGE difference that it has made over the years to get adjustments to maintain my health, like tuneups for my back and body.

— Patti S. & Elizabeth S.

Back Pain - Difficulty Walking

I'm so grateful for Dr. Robyn. With each treatment I experience more movement. When I came in I could barely walk, bend or lift and now I am feeling more energy and less pain.

— Janis O.

Back Pain

I was a little nervous about coming in but it has been life changing! I have learned more about my health in the past few weeks than I have in my entire life. Chiropractic care is very beneficial and has helped give me my health back! Thanks for treating me as a whole person!

Back Pain - Low Back Pain

I had horrible low back pain and could barely function. It caused sleepless nights and almost total lack of energy. I have improved my quality of life and have more mobility. I am now able to work more, be more active in general and have a better quality of life in general.

— Paul

Back Pain - On the Job Injury

I had an on the job injury with head and neck injury. I got hit on the head with a forklift blade. The forklift slipped on the back-deck shipping container. My pain scale was a 10 of 10 at that time. At the time of the injury and for nine months after, I was unable to do my daily activities until now. I am going to start riding my motorcycle and hope to be back to work soon after work has released me. A very big 'THANK YOU' to Dr. Robyn and her staff.

Back Pain

I've had back pain for about the last 10 years. I am also frustrated and haven't been very active in recent years as I really feel it after walking and exercising for a short period of time. Along with this, I have neck problems too. I read about Dr. Robyn through google reviews and there were a lot of people who thought highly of their experience with her. Now I can do a lot of things that I haven't been able to do comfortably in years. I've been able to play some basketball and go for longer walks, etc. The whole staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Robyn really cares and is always encouraging me to exercise, eat healthy and trying to help me feel better long term.

Back Pain

Great Chiropractor! Great Staff! AMAZING SERVICE. All the doctors I've seen for my headaches and neck pain and all the drugs that were prescribed to me did not help one bit. My headaches and neck pain vanished after a few adjustments. Love this place!

Back Pain

Yesterday was the first time in years that I was able to just enjoy gardening without thinking about how much pain I was in. I love having a chiropractor that I trust and results I can feel.

Back Pain

I came to Dr. Robyn with mid and lower back pain that had been getting worse over the last year caused by an accident several years ago and working physically hard. I have had other chiropractic treatment in the past. I was uninspired to commit to care so no real changes were made. As luck would have it, I found my way to Dr. Robyn by walking by. Since I started here, I'm generally feeling a lot stronger, less back pain and peace of mind that my health is being well looked after. THANK YOU to DR. ROBYN.

Back Pain

Always treat to see the doc and her staff. And their "toys". They have a bunch of high tech machines and other devices to help with maintenance, healing, musculoskeletal adjustment and overall health. The office is run well by a knowledgeable and friendly staff.

Back Pain

I get migraines a lot unexpectedly I have noticed they don't last as long or meds are not needed due to the pain level (real low). I have more energy to do activities besides work. My lower back and shoulders feel great no more tension.

Back Pain

If there were 10 stars, I would give them 10! A BIG thumbs up to an amazing team. From the minute you walk in the door, there is a positive energy that I believe truly facilitates healing. Everyone is very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Their passion for holistic healing is refreshing and I look forward to every visit. I can't say enough about the entire team and highly recommend them. Don't be surprised if you walk out not only aligned and feeling good but nurtured and refreshed.

I'm so blessed to finally go to a chiropractor that really knows what she is doing and takes the time to educate me on what I can do to help myself as well. I feel the love!

Back Pain

Dr. Kingsbury is AMAZING! I have been to 3 or 4 chiropractors before discovering Dr. Kingsbury and now I have found my chiropractor for life!! In fact the true testament is that I live 45 miles (yes, 45 miles!) from him and I still see him religiously whenever I feel the need. I find myself just getting regular "tune-ups" from him every 3 months or so for preventative maintenance (to keep me on the tennis court all year long) and boy does it work!

Dr. Kingsbury does more than plain old chiropractic. He does kinesiology as well. He'll test certain muscles out and tell you the root of the problem immediately. Pretty cool stuff. One time my knee really hurt and he had me rub my stomach area a certain way (weird I thought, what does stomach have to do with my knee). Well, the knee pain went away IMMEDIATELY! He explained that I needed to make certain diet changes and it helped. All very cool stuff. This guy is great. He works with Olympic athletes, the UC Santa Cruz men's and women's volleyball teams, and average people of all ages.

The first time I saw him, I had an achilles issue and I could barely walk. Twenty minutes later I walked out of there 80% better after one session. Do yourself a favor and go see him. You'll soon find the same thing I did, your new chiropractor for life. PS--He's a very nice and genuinely cool guy too!

Back Pain

Dr. Kingsbury is an amazing person. He not only helps me by adjusting me twice a month but he takes time out of his day to find ways to improve my life. I know every time I go there I am going to be treated well and will leave a better person. The whole staff lead by example and actually care about people progressing in life. I suggest you get started on your new life today and get an appointment.

Back Pain

I have been going to Dr. Robyn for five years off and on. She has a great staff and they always make the day a bit brighter. The only thing I can complain about is that I don't get to go as much as I need to. I always feel so much better after my adjustments. Thank you Dr. Robyn!

Back Pain

Dr. Robyn and her staff have wonderful energy and great service! I never knew chiropractic care could be so beneficial until I began service in 2009. Dr. Robyn and her staff made sure that I was comfortable and educated, and now I could not imagine life without chiropractic care.

— Liz L.

Back Pain

Dr. Robyn and her staff CARE! That is why I'm here and will continue to keep coming here. I have been a patient before, about a year ago and quit coming because I felt better and my insurance was cancelled. Well I felt better only for awhile. All my original symptoms came back and some new symptoms showed up as well. I've been back now for 2 1/2 months and feel more energetic and much of my pain is down to a dull roar, in fact this is the first month in FOREVER that I have not had menstrual cramps -- VERY COOL!!! I still have more work to do to undo the many years of misusing my neck and back, but I'm well on my way!! I highly recommend chiropractic to all and speak highly of it to my co-workers who complain of the same symptoms I've had. I feel like I have a new lease on Energy & Life!! THANK YOU DR. ROBYN AND STAFF.

Back Pain

Don't know what I would do without Dr. Kingsbury! The first time I sw him was to treat chronic scar tissue pain I had been living with for nearly a year after gall bladder surgery. Within a few weeks of soft tissue treatment, the pain was gone and I was able to get back into my work outs including running and strength training. From that point on I have seen Dr. Kingsbury many times when my body hasn't cooperated with me -- such as a popped rib and several shoulder problems. His magic always gets me back in the game, for which I am extremely grateful! I am now seeing Dr. Kingsbury for comprehensive research into an unspecified auto-immune condition. He has extensive training in thyroid, gluten intolerance and other auto-immunes. I will update my yelp post as I learn more how I can treat symptoms through natural means such as diet. Would recommend Dr. Kingsbury for any level of chiropractic or auto-immune issues.
