Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "For my first visit to DCO in 2016, I was using a walker or cane for knee and severe lower back pain. Dr. Tim’s adjustments were immediately helpful. He also taught me better body mechanics and exercises I could do to improve my results. I have made much better progress with Tim than the previous 10 years with other treatment.
    I have recently had both knees replaced but was still using a cane. With Tim’s excellent care and encouragement, I am now cane free! I will always be grateful for the progress I’m making at Delmar Chiropractic."

  • "I didn't know about this place until a friend told me about it I inquire and they accepted me I sustained a back injury some time ago and every now and then it flares up Old the pain they gave me a treatment and I feel a little bit better so I'm going back to them again tomorrow if you never been to a chiropractor before you need to try this place good people good sense of humor"
    David L. H.
  • "I was slated for back surgery for a herniated disc when I decided to try chiropractic. My back felt differently - better - right away after the first adjustment. Soon I was back to myself and able to work out, ski and play rugby. The care I received at Delmar Chiropractic allowed me to return to the active lifestyle I had before the disc injury and now I continue to maintain my spine with regular adjustments!"

Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
