Marsillo Chiropractic Reviews
What Patients are Saying About Our Practice…
8 weeks ago I was ready to go get an MRI, a CAT scan, or whatever medical tests necessary to find out what was causing my excruciating back pain. Fast forward 8 weeks – I am virtually pain-free thanks to Dr. Marsillo. I met Dr. Marsillo 15 years ago when I suffered headaches – he cured them completely. I saw him randomly over the years when I had a few aches and pains-he always, successfully, relieved the pain. In fact, Dr. Marsillo got me through a very rough twin pregnancy 6 years ago – he saw me the day before I delivered two 6 lb boys and had gained 85 pounds! The pain in my lower back came back about 6 months ago, I just assumed that after having 4 children and putting a lot of stress on my back, I would have to accept this pain in my lower back. Then I went back to see Dr. Marsillo. Through his care, I feel like a new person – pain-free! On both a professional and personal level, he is a wonderful chiropractor and person. I would highly recommend Dr. Marsillo to anyone!
In my late 40s, an all-to-frequent flyer, I was diagnosed with an L4-L5 herniated disc. My fear was that my twice-weekly ice hockey game with my buddies was over. Of course I was in pain, taking lots of strong pain medication just to get through the day. Sitting for extended periods of time was a challenge. The typical treatment for herniation often involves back surgery. Fortunately, a good friend of mine recommended Dr. Marsillo. After his diagnostic review, Dr. Marsillo provided customized exercises and stretches while he began the process of adjusting my back and helping me to build up core strength. Within 3 months I was off medication and back on the ice—twice a week! I still have back pain, but it is mostly manageable and I continue to consult Dr. M with the hope that his treatment will help me to avoid any further crisis.
I’ve been visiting Marsillo Chiropractic for the past 5 years, initially for lower back pain, which was successfully treated. Since then, I visit Dr. Marsillo for regular maintenance. I mentioned to Dr. Marsillo on a recent visit that I had vertigo and that I’d been to our family physician and an ear, nose, throat doctor. Dr. Marsillo offered to treat me for the condition. The procedure was done in one visit and was completely successful. I had no idea that vertigo could be corrected through chiropractic adjustment and in just one visit!
Sciatic pain is probably the most painful and debilitating pain you can undergo. It comes on unexpectedly and is difficult to relieve. I have recently experienced such pain. I called my Family Practitioner asking him for an appointment and what he could do to help. His answer was that there was really nothing that could be done and the only recourse I had was to “wait it out!” Not satisfied with that alternative and remembering years ago I had lower back pain and had called a Chiropractor for help, I contacted Robert Marsillo DC in Darien. After an evaluation he proposed a series of three visits per week and began treatment. Within three weeks the pain was completely gone. After each session I noticed a marked improvement but never quite expected the complete return to freedom from pain . I expect to go on a maintenance program in order to build the strength in the components so that the pain will not return. I highly recommend the intervention of Dr. Marsillo’s practice of care and concern into any pain if you are experiencing discomfort in any way. There is another way and Chiropractic Care is that way!
In early January, I woke up got out of bed and was hit with a back pain I had never experienced before. On the second day, feeling that it was not getting any better at all, I went to see Dr. Marsillo (He was recommended by several people I work with.) With each treatment I can feel the improvement. I can confidently say that without the treatment and exercise program recommended, I would still be in pain. Thank you Dr. Marsillo.
My son, Taylor, age 15, has suffered from headaches for as long as I can remember. He would experience three or four headaches during an average week. I can’t count the number of days of school and sports events he has missed over the years due to headaches. We have tried many courses of treatment to eliminate them. We have tried everything from neurologists to allergists, all of them unsuccessful in eliminating the headaches. Finally, we tried chiropractic. After about a week or two of treatments, the number of headaches and the severity of them had decreased noticeably. Miraculously, over the course of about a month of your treatments, Taylor is nearly headache free! Many, many thanks!
