in Nambe, NM |
Dr. Short is great! He is very knowledgeable and is helping me to align my body after years and years of high level sports. He is also helping me to align my feet which I have gone to 2 podiatrists to remedy, one suggesting surgery, and neither suggesting a chiropractic adjustment. I can actually walk without compensating for the pain and misaligned bones now! I had no idea that seeing Dr. Short would help my body as much as it has and continues to!
in Nambe, NM |
Doc Short has helped my body to regain full alignment and he taught it how to maintain the alignment over the long-term. I feel great! He makes my two previous chiropractors look like novices. He accurately diagnosed a difference in the lenght of my legs and gave me heel lifts to compensate the difference free of charge! He has now checked me and found me in perfect alignment five times and because he has not made adjustments he has not charged me for these visits! Thank you Doc Short!

I couldn't even talk, was completely out of alignment, had the wrong shoes, and was fatigued from not being able to sleep due to pain. My wife called Dr. Short on a Friday afternoon and he saw us on a Saturday and Sunday to begin my treatment. I have followed his suggestions and I'm experiencing relief from long-standing misalignment issues.
in Santa Fe, NM |
Dr. Short took his time to evaluate me in a professional manner. His tests found that I was not "out of align," so therefore there was no continued treatment. He also educated me on the issues of worn out shoes, inadequate pillow support as well as mattress issues that may be contributing to my problem. His honesty was refreshing and he did not charge me for the initial consultation .

Dr. Brian Short is amazing. He was able to help me eliminate long-term head and neck pain that had not responded to any other modality or technique. Highly recommended!
in Santa Fe, NM |
I had never before been to a chiropractor, but Dr. Short was recommended to me by my physician for a back problem about a year ago. His treatment was amazingly successful, relieving most of my pain in a few weeks. I have been going for maintenance visits ever since . Recently I strained my back once again when lifting more than I should have, and he got me walking and feeling good again in a short time. I recommend him highly.
in Santa Fe, NM |
I had shoulder surgery but needed adjustment of some sort. I couldn't even lift my arm. My granddaughter went to see him and I went along. Dr. Short said he could help me and gosh he sure did. He helped me and now I am doing well. I can now make jelly, so I took him a jar of raspberry jelly.

Dr. Short is a provider who reaches you exactly as you need relief from your pain. I have had spine issues and receiving his treatments, I was healed. I had a second injury a year later in which I had compressed a disk and needed relief. I could barely bend and standing up from sitting was almost unbearable. After a few treatments, I could feel tremendous relief. He has helped my wife too. I am sure she will write a review down the road. Thank you for your expertise. Roy H.

A five star rating from me! Doctor Short has helped me, significantly, with relief from a chronic back condition. Not only is my painful spine vastly improved but many other related symptoms are erased or diminished. I'm greatly satisfied by this successful, non-invasive, treatment. AND I don't walk like an old woman anymore!
in Santa Fe, NM |
Excellent, intuitive care...Brian is hands down the best in town, if not in the state.
in Santa Fe, NM |
I have been in chronic back pain for a number of years and after my very first appointment with Dr. Short I was pain free for the first time in a long time the entire next day. Of course to remain pain free it is important to stay consistent with appointments and take advice for home care seriously.
in Santa Fe, NM |
I had suffered for 9 months with the aftermath of a serious car accident. My doctor recommended Dr Short as a gentle man with a wide range of up-to-date knowledge in chiropractic care. Dr. Short is easy-going but very efficient, thorough and competent. My pain and the alignment of my neck, back, hips improved dramatically. I followed his advise to the tee including supplements, pillow, shoes, car seat adjustments. He listened and explained everything in layman's terms to ensure understanding
in Santa Fe, NM |
He is the BEST and his gift to heal has helped me get to living a pain free life! He came highly recommended to me by my doctor at a time when I was having horrible back pain and could hardly stand. He is my go to guy for all body aches and pains!
in Santa Fe, NM |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Short. A chronic condition was remarkably changed in a week and the pain released.

Dr. Short has a laid back manner and is efficient and follows through from car seat adjustments, shoe adjustments and body adjustments. I highly recommend him. He can pull you out of a chronic or acute situation.
San Jose |
I went to Dr Short after a car accident. All was well until my auto insurance funds ran out. He refused to bill my health insurance, even though he was contracted with them. He made threatening phone calls, said he was going to send me to collections, & took out a personal lien against me. We went round & round even though my insurance told me repeatedly they were willing to pay it all. My health insurance had to request bills from him, & when he finally sent them in, they paid him.
in Santa Fe, NM |
Dr Short has an easy manner to help the client feel relaxed in his care. His technique is different compared with many other chiropractors I have seen in the past. No high velocity movement or cracking bones! His treatment has helped me with neck and low back pain as well as migraine headaches. He has also helped my teenage daughter over the last few years with a variety of musculoskeletal complaints.
in Santa Fe NM |
Dr Short is certified in the activator method, which is most helpful for me. His protocol relieves my pain.

Very thorough and professional. Great in an emergency situation.
in Questa, NM |
Dr. Short is a gentle person with a great sense of hummer. His knowledge in his field of practice is excellent with a great bedside manor. His method of chiropractic healed my neck problem and my mother's spine problem as well. I return for maintaining the body alignment to Dr. Short more often. I have and will recommend him to my friends and family! Thank you Dr. Short for your excellent work!
