Chiropractic Testimonials

Low Back Pain

"My low back had been a problem all of my life and I had seen chiropractors for 25 years, without the results I wanted. I tried several different chiropractors and ended up with severe neck pain, terrible vertigo, could not put weight on my left leg in the morning, took ibuprofen several times a day for the pain, and was even more fatigued than usual. In general I also had battled with hormone imbalance, strong sugar cravings and a general miserable feeling of struggle that although being a pretty upbeat person just was dragging me down more and more each passing year.

Immediately after seeing Dr. Mento and having my Atlas adjusted, I felt a huge sense of relief. The left side of my entire spine relaxed and my low back improved to being mostly pain free in the first 1 1/2 weeks of adjustments. Within 2 weeks I no longer needed ibuprofen for pain. Within 4 weeks my vertigo cleared up. I am now 6 weeks into being adjusted. My body is feeling more at ease and my brain working better. Being out of pain is so wonderful! Instead of just seeing the "light at the end of the tunnel" to feeling better and being able to move forward in health - I feel like I am out of the tunnel! This type of treatment is so exciting and beneficial."

Asthma | Allergies

"I had not initially planned on coming to Harmony Chiropractic Arts for myself. However, my friend and her daughter told me about their health improvements after going to see Dr. Mento. They thought that my daughter should try it. My daughter, whose health was a disaster, had tried everything and had done all the medical tests and specialist with no results for the better. So she went. That did it.

I saw for myself her improvements. She advised me to go. But of course I did not think I needed to. The fact that my asthma, allergies to food and medications and colon issues were getting worse, was natural. Just a part of growing old - so I thought.

What happened: My atlas was adjusted. Wow. Never before had I experienced such relaxed peace within my whole body, and I could breathe! I mean, I could take full deep satisfying breaths. When was the last time I could do that? Again, wow!

It has now been 6 months. I have changed the way I eat, low sugar diet, with mineral boosters and vitamin supplements. As a result greater things have started to happen. I have only had one mild asthma attack since initiating care. Usually in the fall I hit my inhaler twice a day every other day - no more. My colon has learned to behave. My stomach doesn't hurt when I eat (didn't everybody's - who knew!) Hormones, ahhh, balance. And yes, my shoulders are learning to stay down. Stress is not the master it once was.

What does this all mean? Because my body got what it needed, by someone who spoke its language and took the time to soothe its cries, I am a better person, inside and out. Thank you."

Food Sensitivities

"Before becoming a patient of Dr. Mento's, I saw a Chiropractor every 1-2 weeks. Often my adjustments did not last long enough for me to leave his office. I had numerous food sensitivities, fatigue and muscle and joint pains - all chronic conditions.

I was referred to Dr. Mento by a friend. Since learning about Atlas Orthogonal adjustments and having this done, my adjustments hold for weeks! I have also followed through with Dr. Mento's recommendation regarding nutritional supplements and changed my eating habits.

I am pleased to say that I have noted a marked improvement since starting care 1 1/2 years ago. I can now eat most foods without a reaction. I have more energy and sleep better. My general outlook and attitude have improved as a result of this.

I am very grateful for the compassion, knowledge and expertise that Dr. Mento and his caring staff have provided."

Chronic Hip Pain

"I sought treatment for my chronic hip pain from other area chiropractors in the past, but never have I had the experience of my discomfort decreasing BY THE HOUR following an adjustment! It was remarkable. And comprehensive does not even begin to describe my care here at Harmony Chiropractic, as a multitude of health and wellness issues are addressed with each visit."

Spasmed Muscle Pain / Balance Difficulty

"Before coming to Harmony Chiropractic Arts, I was very discouraged with my health. I had difficulty balancing and walking; my right shoulder, neck and arm were painfully in spasm; I leaned to the right; and I had no strength.

Since I have started care, I am optimistic - everything has improved. I have been around chiropractic all my life but never understood the vital role of the Atlas. Dr. Mento is a caring, empathetic man with true compassion coupled with open-mindedness. He searches for the truth and the most efficacious way to help his patients. This makes him a uniquely effective healer. He sees the big picture and LISTENS, gently guiding emotionally and physically towards a resolution. I'm so grateful to him and his supper assistant!"

Back Pain After Spine Fracture

"I had fallen and fracture my lower spine. My family doctor told me to walk and it would heal on its own. I could not stand up without pain - I could not lie down, if I did I could not roll over to get up. I was in constant pain and was very depressed for two months. Then a good friend told me about Dr. Mento. Two months after my injury, Dr. Mento evaluated me and fitted me with a back brace that gave me instant relief from pain. Then the next day I started treatments and also a low sugar/higher protein diet.

Dr. Mento took the time to tell me what was wrong with my body by showing me my x-rays and explaining how he could help me. I have learned that I had a lot of problems before the spine fracture and they are all being corrected as much as possible now.

First of all, getting the Atlas back where it belongs and to stay there is a big plus. I am now standing up straight again and no longer list to one side. I like the gentle treatment more than what they were like years ago. I am thankful for the nutrition support and the caring concern for my welfare. I am sleeping better; I have more energy; and my irregularity is no longer a problem. I am feeling more like my old self.

I am thankful for Harmony Chiropractic Arts - for Dr. Mento's care and for my friend who told me where I could get help."

Chronic Pain

"Prior to seeing Dr. Mento, I was in distress with health overall. My back and neck were always hurting. I couldn't be as active as I wanted to be. My heart or chest area was in pain when I exercised mildly and I had a lot of eating and digestive problems. Sleeping had been a problem for the last 2-3 years.

Since coming to Harmony Chiropractic Arts I have felt better in body and mind. Thinking there might be an answer to healing is great. My neck feels less pressure as is my lower back. I am sleeping better and my eating habits are improving. I have met wonderful friends here, which is a blessing. Thank you both!"

Nervous System | Burning Stiffness

"I came to know about Dr. Mento through a friend. I was a mess. I had been to medical doctors and the Emergency Room at various times for my problem of burning stiffness in feet/legs, stomach pain, chest pain, cracking in my neck, and headaches. I spent thousands of dollars seeking medical relief for these symptoms. I finally realized I needed to seek a different solution by trying Chiropractic. My friend recommended Dr. Mento and I began my recovery. I am now feeling much better. Thanks Dr. Mento!"

Headaches

"Before coming to HCA I had intense pain at the base of my skull. For many years this would get worse during pre-menstrual cycle. My husband and daughter would apply strong acupressure to the area for a minute, but this would only relieve the pain for awhile. The pain was making me miss out on fun events.

Dr. Mento explained to me what was happening when my family applied the acupressure. It made sense! Just prior to my first Atlas Orthogonal adjustment Dr. Mento assessed the high level of pain in my neck. Immediately after the adjustment he assessed the pain in my neck and it was gone. It was a miracle! The adjustment was like the touch of a finger, no force at all.

Since then I have no neck pain, no hip pain, no burning in my fingers or toes. My arms and legs don't feel heavy. I have had no sharp jolting pains in my back."
