I always thought Chiropractic was for when you got into a car accident or hurt yourself at work. I had never really suffered from back pain but I did have other problems that I never would have thought were related to my spine. I met Dr. Brown in 1998 while working together in a Chiropractic clinic. He taught me that Chiropractic is not only for back pain, but also for the overall health and well-being of my body. Dr. Brown told me that when vertebrae are out of proper alignment they put pressure on my spinal cord nerves, which affects the function of my body. I had lived with severe menstrual cramps, tingling and numbness in my legs, and irregular bowel movements for as long as I could remember. I thought all of these things were normal for my body. Dr. Brown examined me and took x-rays of my spine. He saw that vertebrae were out of alignment and pinching nerves in my lower back. Those nerves were the ones that controlled the function of all the areas I was having trouble with. No joke, after my first week of treatment I no longer had tingling and numbness in my legs and I began having regular bowel movements. And the cramps still come and go but are not as severe as they used to be, which is still a great improvement. Thanks Doc, I'd still be suffering if it weren't for you!

I have been seeing Dr. Brown for about 3 years now for different problems and I have had excellent results with the treatments. One of the problems I had was that I would get constant headaches from sitting in front of a computer terminal for 8-10 hours a day. With the Chiropractic and Acupuncture treatments I've received from Dr. Brown those headaches are now gone. I still go in for a "tune up" so that they don't come back. I must admit that I initially had some reservations about the Acupuncture since I don't like needles but Dr. Brown explained how the treatment worked, made me feel at ease, and always lets me know when he is inserting the needles on points where I may feel them as they are going in. I now feel at ease every time I go in for an Acupuncture treatment. Another problem that I had was that during the seasonal changes with my allergies I would get nosebleeds. Dr. Brown used the Acupuncture points for those and I have not had any more nosebleeds and my allergies are better controlled with the Acupuncture than with all the pills that my allergy doctor would prescribe. I don't feel the queasiness, nausea, drowsiness with the Acupuncture that I did with the allergy drugs.
I started coming to Brown Chiropractic back in 2002 when I was an MBA student at ASU. By the 6th week of school, lugging around my laptop and books had taken quite a toll on my right upper back and I knew something had to be done. At the time, Brown Chiropractic was in a little office at LA Fitness (nothing like the spacious office condo he's got now...I want one for my own real estate business!), so I stopped by after a workout and scheduled an appointment. I had never been to a Chiropractor before and I wasn't sure what to expect. However, I knew that anything would be better than having to live with that back pain for another day. From the x-rays to the Acupuncture to the initial adjustment, Dr. Brown explained things very clearly to me and in a way that made the whole process very comfortable. I started to feel better after my first adjustment and experienced even more progress after additional visits. After about 4 or 5 treatments, my shoulder pain was gone and I was back to good health. With regular exercise and a visit to Dr. Brown every few weeks or so, I stay healthy and pain-free. In fact, I look forward to the visits each time. The Acupuncture & Acupad treatment feels like a relaxing mini-massage and I usually fall asleep after about 10 minutes of it. Not a bad way to break up the work day! Thanks again, Dr. Brown!
My name is Yvonne. I am from Fargo, North Dakota visiting my daughter and son-in-law. I have had enormous amounts of trouble with fluid retention in my feet and legs. I came to see Dr. Brown along with my daughter on one of my visits here. Dr. Brown and his staff were phenomenal with me. Dr. Brown thought he could really help me, so I took some time off work and came out here for a couple months. Within the first week, he and his staff had the fluid down. The idea is to push the fluid through. I have had Acupuncture, adjustments, massage therapy (which is heavenly) and personal training. Dr. Brown and his staff are awesome. The dedication they have to their work and patients is remarkable. I feel very blessed that they treat someone from out-of-state as if they have known me forever. Hats off to Brown Chiropractic & Acupuncture!
As a business consultant specializing in Chiropractic practices, I have been adjusted by literally hundreds of Chiropractors. Dr. Brown is at the top my list of great Docs. He is professional, but not formulaic, organized, but not rigid, and has a keen insight into his patients. His treatments work! Thanks again to him and his staff for a great, great adjustment. I cannot wait to visit their office again. James Bowen, JD, President Bowen, Inc., Whitefish, MT
I started working for Dr. Brown in October 2002, after moving to Arizona from Nebraska. Shortly before moving here I was experiencing horrible pain in my low back like I had never had before. I went to see a medical doctor and he told me I had a pinched nerve and prescribed me pain medication. I took the pain medication for a few weeks but soon realized that it was not helping my condition. Each day the pain medication wore off and I was stuck with two options, deal with the uncomfortable pain or take more of the pain medication. Dr. Brown took time with me and examined my problem and didn't rush to the next patient. He took x-rays, gave me an Acupuncture treatment and a Chiropractic adjustment. After a couple of treatments I felt great. I realized that with the combination of treatments that he does in the office really helps and solves painful problems fast. Now I know that pain medication can sometimes just be covering up an underlying condition or an injury that needs to be addressed with appropriate treatments. I am very thankful for all of Dr. Brown's help!
My name is Jordan and I am 4 yrs old. I have Cerebral Palsy and moved to Arizona a year ago with my mommy and daddy. I have better doctors here to help me feel better. My mommy started to see Dr. Brown for her health and thought that he could help me too. I love to go see Dr. Brown because he makes me feel better and helps me to walk good so I can run and play with my friends. I love when he cracks my fingers, it makes me laugh. I love going there because everyone is so nice to me and that's what makes me feel good!
