Hi my name is Kathy. About seven weeks ago I came to Dr. Listiak’s office for treatment. I was having difficulty with neuropathy feet and I have damage in my back which radiates down my right leg. It was giving me a lot of problems. I’ve noticed lately that the pain is getting less and less. And in the evenings I’m not complaining as much as I was before and I think that I’m making good progress.

Hi, my name is Brenda and this is my second treatment with Dr. Listiak. In my left leg, my sciatic nerve, I had kind of a shooting pain down my leg and it was going into the arch of my foot where it was very painful. The foot pain just didn’t feel right at all. I would have to sit down and rub it a lot and try to do some little exercises to help me and it just never went away. This is literally my second treatment with Dr. Listiak and the pressure is totally gone. I’m like, “Wow!”
Hi there, my name is Paul and I have a fascinating story to share with you all. This is my second visit for my chronic neck pain treatment, and my first was yesterday. With my neck being significantly diseased, I was only able to move my neck to the left half way. It was difficult to drive because I often had to shift my body to get a full view from the left. But today, as I was driving to my session, I stopped to look back and forth. I went this way and I had ninety degree turn in my neck that I have not had for years. I just can’t believe it, I really can’t believe it. I am so excited and that was just my first visit. Today is my second and I have several more to go. If this much positive came out of one visit, can you imagine what things will be like at the end. I’m so excited and I think I’ve hit a gold mine. I am very happy. Dr. Listiak, I thank you so much.
Hi, my name is Ghazi. I came here to treat chronic pain in my shoulders, in my arms and my neck. I am very happy, after just three treatments I am really feeling good. There is barley any residual pain right now. And I’m feeling good. Thank you Doctor for that.
Hi, my name is Darcy. I’ve been seeing Dr. Listiak for two weeks because of my hand neuropathy. I came with severe pain and I was not sleeping at all. [I was also] having some pretty bad nerve pain down my left arm. I’ve been amazed that the pain in my left arm is gone and I am now able to write again. [I can] hold things with my left hand again. It has been simply fantastic.
Hi, my name is Drew and I’m a patient of Dr. Listiak’s. I’ve been a patient for about three or four weeks and am getting peripheral neuropathy treatment. I’m a cancer patient and I’m undergoing regular treatment, and I have had a really hard time sleeping. In fact, in the last nine years, prior to last night, November 17, 2013, I have slept through the night one time. Last night I got a good night’s sleep, whole night’s sleep, through the night. And I attribute that, in a great deal, in a great way to Dr. Listiak. So, I feel very good about my peripheral neuropathy treatment here and I wish the best for you as well. Thank you and God bless.
My name is Polad and I’ve been coming here for four weeks… or this is my tenth session. Things seem to be getting better, particularly my right leg. I hope to see much more [progress] because my foot is the most problematic. It’s about sixty… forty to fifty percent better. The work on my back has made me a little bit supple. Let’s hope it gets better and better. Now, I’ll be leaving for my home town. But I hope to come back in maybe six months… eight months… we come every year normally. But, if it’s necessary I’ll come earlier and after a year we’ll come and see you again. Thank you.
(Tell me about your thigh. How long did you have a problem in your thigh?)
The last about two to three years I had this neuropathy and numbness in my right thigh. That seems to have gone, I hope it’s gone totally. I hope it’s not just psychological that I’m feeling better but I think it’s better. My right thigh [issues] have been eliminated or nearly eliminated. Maybe there’s ten or fifteen percent still left. That used to get numb and it used to be painful. It’s been like that the past three years but now it seems to be better.
Yes, I want you to know that I couldn’t sleep all night long. I had to get up and sit in my chair to get comfort from my neuropathy hands. But last night, I slept all night long. For how long? Nine hours. It was wonderful. And I didn’t have to get up and sleep in my chair.
Hi, my name is Shelli and I’ve been a patient with Dr. Listiak for almost a month now for my chronic upper back pain and arm pain. He is absolutely amazing and has changed my life completely. When I came for my first appointment with him I was in tears, I couldn’t even talk because I was so depressed. I took at least six pain pills everyday, of prescription high level Percocet. Ten milligrams, six of them a day. Which is quite a lot. I no longer take pain pills, I got off of them. It wasn’t fun to get off of them but I am so happy now. I have no pain, and if I do it’s slight and I know it’s going to get better and better. I’m completely off of the pain pills and I couldn’t live my life without them before. I would wake up and take them, in the afternoon I’d take them, in the night I’d take them. I’m not taking them anymore, and I’m so excited. I feel like my life has just changed 360 degrees since I started seeing Dr. Listiak. He is a God-send, and he is an angel, and he has saved my life. I am one hundred percent grateful for him. He’s amazing and you need to see him. Thank you!
My name is Edna. I haven’t been able to sleep through the night for years [but] last night I slept for five hours straight. I got up, went to the bathroom, went back to bed and slept for four more hours. It was the first time in years that I’ve done that.
(Ah, that’s fantastic. And what kind of problem do you have Edna?)
I have peripheral neuropathy. I also have essential tremor but I’m in the Doctor’s office for neuropathy. And as I say, it’s the first time in years that I haven’t gotten up three or four times a night.
Hi, my name’s Shirley and this is my third adjustment. After my second adjustment my left ear, which has been ringing for at least 25 years, actually stopped. For the first time, my ear ringing stopped and I heard quiet.
I’m Steve and I’ve been a patient here for two weeks. And after two weeks, I feel like I’m a new man. I was definitely in serious chronic lower back pain. Probably on an eight or nine out of ten, even taking anti-inflammatory [medications]. But now I have very infrequent pain. [I’m] walking much better and making a tremendous amount of progress in just two weeks time. Thank you Dr. Listiak, it’s been a great first two weeks with you.
Hello my name is Carl. I’ve been seeing Dr. Listiak for a couple of months now. Just last night, I found myself getting to sleep, falling asleep, and staying asleep for five hours. That’s the second time in the last five years, at least, that I’ve been able to sleep for five hours without waking up. The last time was about a month ago after I’d seen Dr. Listiak. I’ve also noticed a lot less tingling in my feet. I’ve got more of a sensation of normalness in my feet which was a really welcome feeling. So between that and a wellness, a whole wellness about my whole body, I feel like I have more energy. I get emotional about that because when you get run down and tired and you get old running life…. And all of a sudden something perks back up again. It’s really nice and so I’m really thankful for what’s come about here. I’m really looking forward to what’s going to happen through the rest of [my] neuropathy treatment . So, I thank you Dr. Listiak ( for my neuropathy treatment ) and I want to keep on doing what you have me doing. Keep on keeping on.
Hi, I’m Cole Miller. The past five or six years I’ve been focused, mainly, on maintaining my health. Now that I’m healthy, I’ve realized that I can move on [and do] other things, besides worrying about my health. That’s the beauty of chiropractic work. Before, when I was unhealthy, numerous things like school, academics, sports, [and my] social life were being affected. Now that I’m healthier I don’t have to worry about those things anymore. I can just live.
I came in for my first adjustment with Dr. Listiak. I came in with a headache, a mild headache. Before I left and after he did my adjustment, I walked out and I didn’t have a headache any more. The headache relief wonderful, thanks Dr. Listiak.
