When my doctor told me if I didn’t make a change, I’d be in a wheelchair in three years – at that moment I knew I had to do something. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Stephen and Marlissa. Without them I wouldn’t be walking nevertheless exercising every day.
I had been dealing with my pain for over a year. In training for my first full marathon last year, I really strained my hip flexor… to the point that I couldn’t walk without pain, much less run. I started seeing Marlissa, and with the exercises and stretches she gave me along with the muscle correction… (including 2 days before the marathon) … I was able to complete the full race! There is no doubt in my mind… I know I would not have been able to continue training and would not have been able to complete those 26 miles if it weren’t for her!!
In a word: Miraculous! I twisted my neck weirdly in the gym and was fearful it was something very serious. I was in so much pain and so stiff. I found Dr. Steve and in less than five minutes he answered all my concerns. Best of all, by the time I left the pain was GONE!
I have seen several practitioners while looking for help with the shoulder, neck pain, and headaches I was experiencing. I am grateful my path crossed with Dr. Steve and Repair Recover Restore. His knowledge, care, and undivided attention makes him stand out as a practitioner whose primary focus is the patient.
Dr. Handler takes time to ask questions to find out what ails you which is important. I’ve been to chiropractors that are rushed and distant which is kinda scary when someone is adjusting you or even maneuvering your limbs! I have very bad back pain and recent post op for hip, but he only put pressure on my back which actually made me feel better than I had in weeks (since an accident in physical therapy happened). While he’s cautious about my condition, I think that’s wise. I’m recently diagnosed with hypermobility of some big joints, so it made me very nervous. Still, I felt so much relief from just the pressure on my most sensitive part of my back, I will definitely be returning, and am trying to get my husband in there too. So obviously, I recommend him!
I was fearful about coming to a chiropractor, but when I got there, I realized I had made the right choice because I found out what was wrong very quickly and felt much better after my visit. Thank you R3!
Instant gratification coupled with a game plan to feel better is what made the visit outstanding. I’ve been adjusted by 4 other Chiropractors and none could get my lower back to crack but kudos to Dr. Handler he did. Thank you Doc I feel sooo much better. See you next week!
When I first came to see Dr. Marlissa I had been suffering for almost 6 months. After one visit I was getting relief. After 4 visits I no pain, and my legs are feeling the best they have in years.
My hamstring injury was not improving on its own and I knew I needed to do more. I have never had to do PT in the past and didn’t know what to expect. The experience exceeded all expectations! The staff and doctor were wonderful. Times and schedules were available that worked for me. I would recommend Repair Recover Restore to anyone that needed direct help.
I was injured in the parking lot at work and thought I would be gone for a long time. I struggled with simple activities like going up the stairs or showering. Marlissa made it quick and easy for me to get right back into work with no troubles. Without their help, I probably would still be at home trying to gain the strength back on my own. The staffs uplifting attitudes and smiling faces made me not hate my journey to recovery. Now I don’t struggle with anything and I’m actually STRONGER than before my fall.
After my fall, I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to get back to normal. I thought no matter what I did I couldn’t get back to 100%. Working with the team at Repair Recover Restore not only got me out of pain but I’m moving better than before my accident! I couldn’t be happier with the staff and Dr. Marlissa really helped me believe I could get there. Thank you!
I came to Dr. Steve with on and off knee pain that I was experiencing during my training runs for a half marathon. He suggested muscle correction, a form of therapy of which I was not familiar. It instantly loosened my muscle tightness and relieved my pain. I did not have to take any medication or give up my runs. He showed me how to stretch out and strengthen my muscles as well. I was able to continue with my training as scheduled.
I was nervous at first because the method Dr. Marlissa used was very different than anything I had experienced before. But my progress was not only quick, but virtually pain-free after the first week! All in all, it was a wonderful experience. And the staff is very nice also.
My main aim was to have a pain-free life. I was so afraid of getting in more accidents I had my family drive me wherever I needed to go. I couldn’t live with that burden anymore. Thankfully the team at R3 were so amazing and not only fixed my problems but got me the confidence back I needed to regain my independence and remove that burden from my family.
