I went to Dr. Manela desperate for help. My very first visit he spent 2 hours with me. A majority of the time was spent talking and reviewing my lengthy medical history. I received my first treatment that day and actually got enough relief to be able to sleep that night for the first time in several weeks. I went back for treatment again the next day. He said “I’ve been thinking about your case since you left yesterday and I really want to help make your life better.” To be continued.......

I came in with lower back pain and nerve pain - Dr Manela explained that I had a spinal condition and since coming to him, both have started to subside. I can't emphasize how easy it is to set up and come in for an appt - and Dr Manela has a great attitude. RUN! DON'T WALK to this office. They're a great group of people.

Dr Manela has kept me moving for years despite DDD, hip problems and sciatica. I've never had a chiropractor correct a bad flare up as quickly as Dr Manela. And he's helped many of my friends and family.

Dr. Manela adjusted my shoulder after I was in an auto accident (i.e. cervical and thoracic subluxation) and I am still recovering. Dr. Manela is very knowledgeable and passionate about his job. His office has updated technology and patient care items. Dr. Manela treats all his patients with respect and truly listen to what you have to say. One day Dr. Manela stayed late to make sure my back and shoulder were properly adjusted. Dr. Manela treats me and all of his clients as his first priority.

Dr. Manela successfully adjusted my spine after I twisted it (i.e. sprain, subluxation) however, the consultative aspect and time spent with patient is poor... He appear rushed and hurried and anxious to move on to the next patient and spends very little time asking questions or providing any insight... Good doctor, just very busy.

I Have been a patient of Dr. Manela's For over 6 years and he is by far the best Chiropractor I have ever met. His techniques and his use of updated technology helped me get back to a healthy lifestyle. Just when i thought there was no one to turn too about my back and neck issues, I met with Dr. Manela and he treated me as i was his first priority. His staff was nice and respectable and i would totally recommend Dr. Manela to anyone who is in need of chiropractic help.

I recommended Dr. Manela to my whole family. He helped me with a herniated disc in my low back. After an auto accident left me barely able to move around without intense pain, he rehabilitated me to where I can now run and play with my kids and lift things again. He listens carefully and really takes his time treating me. Now, several of my family members come and see him, some even drive from over a half hour away! He is the best!
