On 2/20/17 I barely walked in to Dr. Thornton's office. My back was i so much pain, I could hardly move. Scared to death because I had never been to Chiropractor before. He came highly recommended by a coworker who has known him over a decade. He was very caring, compassionate, and understanding. Explained everything to me in layman terms so I could understand. Spent a good amount of time with me. 1 day after my first treatment I began to feel relieve from the pain. It was amazing! I

Dr. Thornton treated me for sciatica in 1990. I was unable to stand, sit and/or lie down as the pain was excruciating. I called his service on a Sunday as I was desperate for relief from this pain. He called me within minutes and after I explained my situation gave me instructions to begin the process of pain relief until I came in to see him first thing in the morning. His skills kept me on my feet and completely pain free within 6 mos. I highly recommend Dr. Glen Thornton.
