Read what some of our patients have experienced at Westside
I began chiropractic treatments with Dr. Prewo in May of 2015. At that time I was unable to sit for more than five minutes at a time. While sitting, I experienced severe pain on the outside and front of my upper left leg. During that year, I had been treated by several physicians: an orthopedic surgeon, physiatrist, and a neurologist. I underwent four spinal epidural injections as well as three injections in my SI joint. None of these procedures were effective.
I am now pain-free as a result of Dr. Prewo’s ongoing treatments. I have found Dr. Prewo to be knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate. He is equally concerned about the long-range physical health of his patients. In addition, the office staff at Westside Chiropractic is consistently cordial and professional. They are well versed in the protocols of current insurance coverage. I highly recommend West Side Chiropractic. Dr. Prewo has had a significant, positive impact on my health.
I want to thank Dr. Shepherd for bringing a healthy detox and weight loss program to our area. I have been teaching culinary arts and nutrition for over 35 years at Manchester Community College. I know the importance of detoxing our bodies periodically of toxins that enter our systems through food, water, and our air supply.
The PaleoCleanse Plus Detoxification Program is a simple, healthy and extremely effective way to detox the body. I believe this is an important step to consider before beginning any weight loss program. I found after completing the program I had increased energy, eliminated sugar cravings and began to lose weight. I highly recommend this program to either yearly detox your body of prepare yourself for a serious weight loss program with results.
With chronic back pain and a knee injury in the last year, I had somewhat given up on being able to enjoy many of the sports that I love. Fortunately, with Dr. Prewo’s excellent care, I was able to participate in Tolland’s Cider Mill Fun Run this year. It was a happy day! I highly recommend Dr. Prewo and the staff at Westside Chiropractic.
At first, I was afraid to go to a chiropractor. My primary physician told me to see a chiropractor and I still did not go. I have had back pain for the last 10 years. My wife just started to see Dr. Shepherd because she wanted to do something to help with her osteopenia before it turned to osteoporosis. She was impressed by the knowledge and degree of care that she got from a chiropractor. She convinced me I should give it a try.
Now I am so happy that I came to this practice. I am feeling much better and am not in constant pain. I really liked the spine class that we went to. It was very informative. I ran home and looked at my xrays to see if I could tell what my problem was. Of course, I couldn’t tell, but it was nice to be able to apply what I had just learned in class. In this time, when most primary physicians don’t have time for you or to explain what is really going on, I was very impressed with Dr. Prewo and the way he educates you about the spin and the problems you could have. I am happy to recommend Dr. Prewo to anyone who has back problems. I gave the free visit card to a person at work who was looking for help and he is very happy with the care he receives.
I went to see Dr. Prewo in March 2012 due to severe sciatica and stiffness in the lower left back area. At that time, I couldn’t run 3 miles without serious leg and back stiffness. Thanks to Dr. Prewo I have now finished my second marathon!
I have spent the last 4 + years with dreadful pain in my neck from a fall and lower back pain from what I was told were degenerating disks. I have been through physical therapy for my neck and have had bi-weekly visits to a massage therapist that helped maintain and keep the pain at a moderate level.
On my first visit to Dr. Prewo at Westside Chiropractic of Tolland, I knew this was going to be different. During the initial evaluation he stood me up and remarked, “You’re crooked,” which was something I had felt and explained to medical doctor for the last 2 years. But they never addressed it or offered any solutions. To finally have this acknowledged, I knew I was in the right place.After just 2 weeks of visits, my lower back pain has subsided drastically. I no longer get up from a sitting position bent over, painfully standing up. I have also gained full mobility in my neck, which I have not had for years. I am once again able to fully look over my shoulder which makes a huge difference when driving.
I had no idea how much energy the pain had been draining from me. My energy level is way up and I feel more like myself these days, energetic and happy. Getting chiropractic help has been life changing for me.
