Dr. Shortell has helped me multiple times for different issues. I had a lower back problem from car accident. All orthopedics I talked to all suggested the same action plan, medication and surgery. Dr. Shortell was able to align me and years of pain gone in a matter of months and allievated in less then a couple of weeks. No surgery or medication. Also, fixed plantar fasciitis issue that lasted years, gone in weeks with Dr Shortell. Friendly staff! I highly recommend.

I had never been to a chiropractor before seining Dr. Shortell so I was unsure of what to expect. Dr. Shortell is very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. He puts you at ease, and got me feeling great again in no time. I look forward to my now monthly visits to Cromwell Chiropractic, and I have referred several people to Dr. Shortell who have all had success treating their pain.

I have been a patient of Dr. Shortell's for a variety of painful issues since April 2015. I received excellent recommendations prior to his services. At the conclusion of treatments for each issue, when I was about to conclude my care, another "need/hurt" would occur! Throughout his treatments, I have trusted him and feel that he has been successful in treating me.

I have been a patient with Dr. Shortell for about 15 years now. I originally was introduced to him at the Durham Fair, where his office had a table which asked a question that caught my eye: Do you suffer from headaches? For several years I suffered from neck related headaches and only ibuprofen or aspirin would relieve it when it got too much to function normally. I have a better understanding of what was going on, and through Dr. Shortell's care I have not suffered from these headaches

Dr. Shortell services our whole family. Due to the excellent care he has given, my kids have been able to play high school sports with consistency and good health. He helped me through a painful neck injury. I was able to take up running and my neck and back feel great. He is a life changer! I always recommend him to friends and family. Great human being too!

When I went to Dr Shortell it was for problems that several months of physical therapy did nothing for. I was severely depressed t=witht e thought that I would always have this back pain that would affect the quality of life I had before (gardening, excercise, sleeping, etc). I have been going to Dr Shortell for a few months now and I have to say I am amazed and can bend over again with ease and am sleeping again! PS Dr Shortell was recommended to me by the PT I was going to!

I had back issues years ago, and went to Dr. Shortell and my visits with him helped a great deal. My husband couldn't get up and walk good at all one day, I called Dr. Shortell, who at the time never met him, and he went into the office to meet us. My husband left his office walking and continued therapy with him, which has helped a great deal as well. I have been having back problems again, so I am seeing Dr. Shortell again, which is definitely helping.

I just wanted to say I was very impressed with Dr. Sortell. My daughter was seeing him and she would rave about him. when I had an issue my daughter said you should go see Dr. Sortell. So I did. I am glad I listened to her. found that Dr. Shortell took his time with and explained everything to me. Which a lot or doctors really don't do that. I was also impressed with the outcome. I feel better!!!! His office staff is very pleasant and informative. I have recommended him to others

I have been chiropractic for over 40yrs. When I moved I needed a new one. I went to Cromwell Chiropractic and Dr. Shortell. I'm impressed. He is very nice, smart and knowledgeable. He took his time with me and I never feel rushed at an appointment. I'm pretty old now and have some new problems but Dr. Shortell took me through them. He was honest about what he could and couldn't do. I admire that. He has helped and guided me and I am much better and well on the road to recovery. His offi
