I was nervous to see a chiropractor, but it was the best decision I've ever made! Dr Ungemach mkes you feel so comfortable and explains everything clearly. He has help my pain exponentially! I'm finally starting to feel "normal" again.

After having 2 spinal fusion surgeries, Dr. Scott Ungemach's techniques have given me relief. He has introduced me to different options for long term relief. He's very knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommend him to anyone with back, neck, or hip issues.

Dr. Ungemach did more for me in six visits than the guy down the road did in six months. I feel that he truly cares about me and my ailments and more importantly, I am feeling better and able to do things that I was not able to do two months ago. I am so glad my medical doctor recommended him to me and now I recommend him to everyone.

I saw Dr. Ungemach while I was in town visiting family. I had severe lower back pain from the 18 hour drive. He explained to me that one or two adjustments wasn't going to fix me but he treated me for pain relief. I must say, he saw me twice and I felt so much better and was able to spend quality time with my family instead of laying in bed. He even set me up with a Chiropractor back in Fl. Thanks to my experience with Dr. Scott, I now see a chiropractor once a month. I can't thank him enough!

I was ready to give up on feeling any better, until I started adjustments with Dr Scott Ungemach. I have fibromyalgia and back/neck problems for over 20 years. I am unable to take medication due to the side effects. If my muscles were too tight, traditional manual adjustments did not help. Dr Ungemach combines traditional manipulations, using a machine that adjusts a specific area and many other different techniques to achieve the results you are looking for. I highly recommend Dr Ungemach.
