I had tried everything before going to Dr. Bruns. I had nearly given up. I'm so glad I gave chiropractic a chance, because it was the only thing that worked for me! If you're on the fence about making an appointment, don't wait any longer. I wish I had gone sooner!

Love the massage machine he used on my lower back and the electric pads are like nothing else I've ever experienced before. Incredible sensation and everything feels stretched and relaxed after it's done. If you've never tried the electric pads, they alone are worth a visit. I go every few months for maintenance on some old sports injuries and I plan to continue going. Love Dr. Bruns and everything he does!

If you want results, this is the place to go. I could barely move and within a few visits I was pretty much back to normal. I could not be happier with the results. Thank you Dr. Bruns!

Dr. Bruns has ben managing my chronic low back problems for several years. This involves visits about every 18 months, sometimes more, sometimes less. He is knowledgeable, friendly, effective, and always looks at the whole patient, not just the specific problem. His staff are wonderful and make for smooth, friendly, office experience. I cannot recommend Bruns Chiropractic highly enough.

Tremendous results from Dr. Bruns in resolving my headaches. Since I was a teenager I had suffered from frequent migraines and was taking 3 different medications due to the severity of them, meds, ice and a dark room for hours. Since treating with Dr. Bruns I haven't had a migraine in over a year. Very pleased, who wouldn't be.
