Dr Braden is precise. After each adjustment, I feel like jumping up off the table and clicking my heels together. Sincerely!!! Dr Michael Braden is top notch. He & his staff are ALWAYS professional, welcoming and friendly. I've been with him for over 5 years and will NOT go anywhere else for my adjustment. Once, you have the BEST, how can you go elsewhere? I won't. I have had over 15 years of prior chiropractor interactions. Try him out, you will agree. I rarely write reviews. But Dr Michael Braden deserves the highest marks, every single visit.

I would most definitly without a doubt give DR Braden five stars!!! If it were possible I would give him ten stars !! I have already referred him to many of friends and family . Dr Braden as been a integral part to my healing!! Since I started going to him six or seven years ago when I had two motor vehicle accidents. Since going to him his chiropractic adjustments and treatments has helped my body recover and better overcome the pain I used to have from my motor vehicle accidents. Dr Braden is also a very compassionate of whatever pain you are going thru and Always has a listening hear to what you have to say. Dr Braden also is very willing to work with you thru the healing process. He is a true God sent!!!

FantasticI highly recommend Dr Braden. I was referred to him by pain management after a head on collision (with a wall) Thankful to be alive, but in alot of pain. He was kind, concerned, and truly listened to what I say. Fast forward 10 months. I can no longer work, but he keeps me functional!! I truly believe I wouldn't feel as good as I do with Dr Braden's care. Don't hesitate to make an appointment. I tell anyone and everyone to see him if they need relief.

Dr. Braden is truly 5 STARS! I have been his patient lately as a result of an auto accident. His treatments have provided me with considerable relief from the discomfort in my neck and lower back. When he is not achieving the desired result, his vast knowledge allows him to use different techniques to achieve and get it. One of the best things is that he personable and easy to talk to. He has the ability to explain what he is doing so I can understand it and sometimes tells me some things to do after I leave. His attention to detail and his follow-up with other Doctors, PT and professionals that I go to is very effective. His office is clean and sanitized so I feel very comfortable going there under all these COVID conditions. I highly recommend him!

Dr. Braden is excellent. He is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to thoroughly evaluate you and listens to your concerns in order to plan your course of treatment. I have had lower back problems for years and Dr. Braden has given me the relief that I have been looking for. He explains everything thoroughly and listens to my concerns. His office is extremely pleasant and helpful and I never have a problem with an appointment. His office hours are very flexible and he hours are great. I see him at 7 a.m.! I would highly recommend Dr. Braden to anyone searching for a chiropractor.

I have been coming to Doctor Braden for years and always recommend him to others. He has a lovely staff who is always available to help, and he never fails to find time to fit me into his busy schedule. Doctor Braden uses professional equipment in his beautiful office that always feels like home. He takes the time to fully explain any issues I experience with my shoulders and neck. I know I can always trust him to properly adjust me. I have moved further away and still choose him!

As soon as you enter the office you are greeted with a warm friendly smile. Dr. Braden is the most caring chiropractor I have had the pleasure of seeing. When I could hardly walk his techniques had me moving and working in no time. You will never get a upsell of vitamins, sleeper bed or any other products. Just pure Chiropractic Healing. It truly is a WELLNESS center.
