Dr. Poelking's practice is totally different and unique than with any other chiropractic practice I have seen. His techniques do not hurt and are easier on the body. I also kept up with every appointment and followed directions that were given to me and I feel this has helped with my healing process. I am very happy with my results!

My first experience with Dr. Poelking was a few years ago. I was suffering from sciatic nerve pain and was told by my doctors that my only option was surgery. I saw his ads in the newspaper and decided to make an appointment. He was compassionate and after and exam and x-ray, he determined he could help me and set up a treatment schedule. A few weeks later, I walked out totally pain free! A short time ago, I had a problem with pain in an unrelated area to the first complaint and returned to consult with him on it. Again, he explained to me the problem and set up a treatment plan to get me well. And again, I walked out pain free! I am forever grateful for is compassionate care. Being free from pain is wonderful!!!

I have been experiencing severe back pain for many years. Just recently I was told by a surgeon that I was not a good candidate for surgery as my spinal cord was nothing but a pile of mush. He also suggested that I prepare myself for a sedentary lifestyle (Thanks Doc). I also went thru the pain clinic at Miami Valley Hospital and received four spinal epidural injections without any relief whatsoever. Now for some good news, after meeting with Dr. Poelking regarding my past and present back problems he convinced me that I had nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying their spinal decompression therapy. He was right. Before completing half the program I was free of the sharp agonizing pain that left me totally incapacitated for months. I am now back to golfing. I would also like to add that his staff was extremely helpful and accommodating throughout the process.

I came to Dr. Poelking after seeing his testimonial ad in the newspaper. It sounded very similar to what I had. I was next in line for back surgery and already received an epidural with no success. When I began my program I was in very bad shape. I was using a cane and could barley get out of a chair without help. I was taking pain killers like candy with little help. My leg pain was intolerable. The staff started me on the decompression table and within 3-4 weeks was doing therapy and exercises that I used to be able to perform and before you knew it, I was able to walk without the cane! When I showed the girls I could walk without the cane, they applauded and cheered. That made me feel great. I did 8 weeks, 3 treatments per week and then 4 weeks at 1 treatment per week. I am overjoyed to tell you that I am pain free and almost 100%. Thank you Dr. Poelking and staff!

A treatment program was designed for me consisting of 24 treatments (spinal decompression and physical therapy). At the beginning I was told my treatment program was like a marathon rather than a sprint (i.e. results would take time). I did not see any improvement until treatment number 20. Upon completing the treatment program I had a 75-80 percent reduction in the pain I had been experiencing. While I still have some pain I am hopeful that by continuing doing the exercises given to me in my treatment program additional pain reduction will occur. So I guess I continue on the marathon.

I put off doing something about my lower back pain for too long. I knew I had to find the right doctor that had my wellness as a focus. I did in Dr. Poelking. He spent a lot of time with me to explain my condition, how he would treat it, the probability of success and the cost. Most interestingly he asked me if I wanted to proceed, rather than just assume so. All his staff are great, friendly helpful and are cross-trained in patient care. For me it was the right choice and the therapy was successful. Now on to maintenance.

The entire staff at Poelking Chiropractic, doctors, therapists and office personnel, are always friendly and helpful. They work together to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere. However, there was no "cure" for my condition. What the doctors and therapists have shown me is that less back stress and greater flexibility really depend on me. Following a daily routine outlined by them allows me to function more comfortably and with greater ease.

On July 12, 2012 I completed 8 weeks of physical therapy with Dr Poelking's staff. The results were absolutely amazing! I now have a new lease of health on my life. No more narcotics and Tylenol. I am pain free! How delightful! I probably would have never believed the results I have experienced with the program Dr Poelking set in motion for me. It is so nice not to have back pain every day. I am so much more mobile in my movements.
Carolyn B., Beavercreek, OH
The therapy I received for my condition has helped very much. I feel so much better and have no pain. The therapy and exercise do help. I would highly recommend this office for any therapy. The doctors, office personnel and therapist are very understanding and helpful. Thank You!
Debra S., Dayton, OH
Dr Poelking and his staff made things happen, they pulled, twisted, bounced and vibrated me back to a better back. That Dr said only an operation would work. The staff, everyone was very friendly and helpful. Thank you one and all.
James M., West Alexandria, OH
I found the entire experience by Dr. Poelking and his staff to be very worthwhile and beneficial. From the initial assessment and throughout my treatments, he and his entire staff are true professionals. I would recommend Dr. Poelking and his entire staff to those who need chiropractic services.

I have herniated discs in my lower back, also problems in my upper back. The doctor would not do surgery. I didn’t want surgery anyway. I saw this in the paper about Dr. Poelking and decompression. My husband and I went to the office and I signed up for the program, and I can say I am very happy I did. My back feels much better. I get around better, I am able to get out of bed in the morning and walk. The therapy was great. I was very impressed.

When I first came in to see Dr. Poelking I was clueless to how the spine works. He explained so much that I felt like an “expert” on the functions of the spine. My first visit – which was the exam - I could not move, I could not bend, walk, lift my legs or sit/stand for long periods of time. The exam on my spine and the x-rays taken showed there were more “problem” areas in my spine other than my lower back. Something I wasn’t aware was happening.
During my eight week program/3 times a week I did the decompression therapy, physical therapy, electrical stimulation and alignment. Within the first three sessions (my first week) I could tell the herniations had moved off my sciatic nerve. I was almost in no pain and could walk again! As the treatment continued I was able to bend and move like I did 10 years ago. The pain was gone. I felt better physically so that boosted me to start losing weight – 25 lbs. in 6 weeks!
My friends and family are so happy of my improvement. I am happier and not complaining all the time that I am in pain or I can’t do something like clean the tub or do dishes. I continue to do the core strengthening exercises everyday because I don’t want to end up how I was 8 weeks ago. I am glad I chose to come here instead of having surgery which would have meant a spinal fusion.Thanks to everyone here for helping me along the way. Everyone is so nice and caring. I was actually excited to come 3 times a week – I never dreaded it one time! Thanks again for making me the person I was before my first surgery!
