Patient Feedback

Paula is a wonderful, compassionate, skilled and very knowledgeable about all things chiropractic. They also have 2 massage therapists, I had bodywork yesterday from Audrey and she did a excellent job breaking up a walnut size mass I have on my neck. In one week I feel 70% better and by next week I know I will be 100% . I’ve been coming to Paula for over 3 years and will never let anyone else touch me again, going to a bad chiropractor can be very damaging and believe me I’ve been to a couple in my search for a good one. She is Epic!!

      I don't go as often as I should but this place has definitely helped me. I used to get migraines every couple of weeks.  They were debilitating and I would spend a day in bed.  Now I get one every couple of months and it generally is unpleasant but not a total show stopper.  I don't know about you but getting an extra two week or so per year to go do something fun is worth it to me.  

    Dr Strauss genuinely cares about her patients.  This is not an in/out 5 min deal with only 30 seconds with the doctor.  Dr Strauss listens to the problem, asks questions and examines you to assess the real driving issue, then selects a treatment that targets your real issue. The professionalism and consistency is great.  

    Go give it a try.  You will be glad you did.

      I have been going to Dr. Strauss for several years now, not becasue of headaches, but becasue of severe neck pain which radiated down my arm and made my fingers numb.  I had been to several doctors over the years, had more than one MRI, two steroid injections, and was told there was nothing more that could be done. I had seen a number of physical therapists and chiropractors and even tried acupuncture with not much results. I was so frustrated that I gave up and let my situation become almost unbearable.  I was skeptical but Dr. Strauss worked her magic.  I can't say I am cured but now some days are almost pain free and I can function normally again.

      Fantastic! I have been to several different chiropractors all throughout my life but Dr Strauss' practice is a rare find.  I am often amazed by, and always deeply appreciative of, Dr. Strauss' care. She is competent and confident while still listening, having an open mind and a wonderful demeanor. Her flexibility in techniques speaks to her intuitive and mature chiropractic skills. She obviously knows what she is doing but her bedside manor (along with her staff member's) is comforting and positive. Not only are my chronic headaches gone, but it has been years since my overall body has felt this pain free and mobile. I have been seeing Dr. Strauss for several months now and am so glad I have found her!

      I worked with Dr. Paula Strauss for over 3 years dealing with chronic pain. Up front I want to say I really like Paula and Holly as people, they were always nice and made a welcoming office atmosphere for patients. But my pain only got worse while working with Dr. Strauss, and once I stopped working with her, I started getting better. I have since learned a lot more about why.

    Dr. Strauss is obsessed with neck adjustments, but that's not where my problems were. I now know I have an S-I joint rotation on my left side and a left side shoulder impingement; these are two relatively common issues that I think a chiropractor should have diagnosed accurately. Dr. Strauss, however, blindly followed her "neck-down" ideology despite me repeatedly saying things like "I think the neck adjustment made me feel worse" or having long sit-down conversations with her about how we should alter her approach to get better results for me.

    There was always talk, but no appreciable changes. Putting my trust in Dr. Strauss was a mistake. Her excessive reliance on neck adjustments without understanding the underlying cause (despite what the poster in her office says, she gets lost in symptoms and only thinks she knows the underlying cause...) lead to my condition getting worse and worse, because you can now add upper neck joint trauma to my problems! (she also put my boyfriend in the ER a couple years ago after an adjustment...) I wasted a lot of time and money coming here. I have found Dr. Strauss to be dangerous and irresponsible. Paula should close her business before she hurts more people.

      Dr. Paula Strauss is AMAZING!!!

    I have been suffering with daily headaches for 21 years.  I've had it all - CT scans, MRI's, regular chiropractic care, PAINFUL muscle stripping and massage therapy.  I've done the Master Cleanse, and tried many dietary changes such as removing gluten from my diet, going to raw vegan to trying this herb and that supplement. I just started to think this was just the way it was going to be.

    Dr. Strauss did a full evaluation with me including x-rays. After she had time to go over my paperwork and x-rays, she told me that basically my head wasn't sitting on my spine straight.  Who would have know that 1 mm could cause such issues?

    After my first treatment my headaches started to significantly decrease.  She also performed some trigger therapy on a grizzly knot I had near my left hip that had been plaguing me for about 2 years that even a regular chiropractor was not able to treat with weekly and sometimes bi-weekly treatments.  Dr. Strauss was able to get rid of it in about 5 minutes.  

    Dr. Strauss has changed my life in a huge way - I will never go anywhere else.  So if you are having headaches, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE HEADACHE DOCTOR OF CAMPBELL.

    One more thing... I failed to mention Holly.  Holly manages the front office - she is extremely nice and very good at what she does.  When I called to make my first appointment, she asked if I wanted her to call my insurance company to find out the terms of my benefits.  I've never had anyone do that for me - it was nice that she went through the extra effort.

      Dr. Strauss is amazing. I came to her with extreme neck pain. Within 2 weeks, I could go about my day with little noticeable pain. Now on a maintenance program, my neck pain is nearly gone and no longer deterring me from activity. Thanks, Dr. Strauss!
