Dr. Pragle is fabulous! I've never needed a chiropractor until five weeks ago. I'm a 63 year old woman and was basically bent double with sciatic pain upon waking one morning. I always feared going to a chiropractor thinking that they would hurt me. I was in so much pain that I simply couldn't even get around my house. Dr. Pragle was so helpful, knowledgeable and calming. I was standing straight after one visit and felt 100% better. I had the AO treatment along with the chiro adjustment and a massage. It was so wonderful that I bought a package. Because of Dr. Pragle I didn't have to take the muscle relaxer or the two pain medications that my doctor had prescribed. This was a positive experience in healing for me. I'm so glad that I made that appointment or I'd still be taking medication. Dr. Pragle has made a big difference in my overall health. I'm walking better and sleeping better without medication. I would highly recommend Dr. Pragle and Jennifer, his massage therapist. They helped me get back to my life!    - Wendy
