Dr. Pragle listens to his patients. He acts very professionally but caring. Dr. Pragle uses his elbows to find inflamed parts of body or hot spots. Some of my problems started in 2002 so I am not going to be straightened out over night. But I have started seeing progress Praise The Lord! I have had the crack, pop treatment by some other Chiropractors. Dr. Pragle does not use those methods. In fact he has developed some of the techniques he uses. I went to a Medical Dr. before finding Dr. Pragle after another Chiropractor said he couldnt help me anymore. My Sciatic Nerve on R. lower side was frozen. The Medical Dr. after finding out what insurance I had stated without examining me that I needed a full hip replacement after viewing 1 xray and asking what type of insurance do you have? I knew better. You see I was a Certified Nursing Assistant for almost 30 years. Sciatic Nerve is freeing up now, as well as my R. knee, and behind the R. knee. Also I can raise my right leg and move it more freely now. It doesnt feel like I am dragging a concrete block around attached to R. Side anymore.  - Rosa
