in Bellevue, Idaho |
In short...it never ceases to amaze me how effective Dr. Rutherfords chiropractic adjustments are! The way it goes is this: I have a misalignment that continues to cause increasing pain in my back or neck. Finally, I go without an appointment (not recommended!), and Dean gets me in asap. In 10 minutes after clever painless adjustments, I leave already feeling 100 times better. In the days ahead things improve substantially! I will ALWAYS RECOMMEND Dean for Chiropractic!

Dr. Rutherford was very helpful with my various injuries I received from my sports activities. He is my ""go to" guy when I have any type of problem or injury.

I had a great experience with Dr. Dean he helped me with my back problems and continues to monitor my recovery
in Hailey, ID |
Dr Dean had me back on my feet after only two adjustments. Typically when my back goes out I am laid up for at least a couple weeks. He was very easy to get into when I needed an adjustment. His assessments are very thorough. I felt like he knew exactly what to do to fix my issue.

All around very very satisfied. He has done more for me in two visits than other Chiropractors have done in a month's period.
in Sun Valley, ID |
I was in severe pain and called for an appointment and Dr. Rutherford made time for me the same morning. He correctly diagnoised my issue and treated me. Within 3 treatments I was pain free and not walking with a limp. He is compassionate and professional. I would highly recommend him.
