What People Say About Dr. Irene Minkowsky, MD

Reply
After several doctors and numerous tests for severe pelvic pain, Dr. Minkowsky relieved my pain with a 15 minute very gently adjustment of the hip pelvic area. A joint/socket imbalance pressing on a nerve. She has helped me tremendously over 20 years with neck pain, lower back pain, tennis elbow and tendinitis of my forearm. She has used prolotherapy with great success and taught me somatic movements to relieve pain and achieve re-alignment.

With spinal stenosis in both my cervical collar and lumbar, surgery was what all the doctors said until I met Dr. Minkowsky. She has helped me move into a relatively active life with guidance, exercises, and support. I'll never be 100% active again but I mostly work in the range of 80 %, with no surgery. Those are better odds than the surgery gave, with no downtime, stress and painful recuperation.
