    I'm thankful for the entire staff at AJ&S. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The rehab on my shoulder was relatively painless and took less time than I originally anticipated. I highly recommend them. I can't wait to do something dumb again so I can go back!!

    I've seen a few chiropractors over the years in 3 cities and no one has been able to treat my underlying issues like Dan has. Since he's both a PT and Chiropractor, he's uniquely able to diagnose and treat in a very holistic way which is extremely hard to find anywhere else. For example, I've had chronic back issues for at least a decade, with more recent issues splintering off, and can now workout without restrictions and have even started a martial art. Additionally, Dan provides flexibility to ensure you can handle whatever payment amount you might be responsible for.

    I was in a very tough place with sciatic pain. I tried other places but this was the only place where I found the right combination of PT and chiropractic treatment to get me on the path to recovery. Dr Dan’s expertise and guidance is what I needed. I trust him and his staff. They have greatly reduced my pain and provided a clear path for a long term healing.

    I had neck and shoulder pain for several years. I saw several doctor with no results. I was skeptic about visiting a chiropractor because you always hear you will have to go for life. I committed to a 12 month plan with Dr. Jacobazzi which is time consuming but worth it. It has been 9 months since my last visit. I have zero pain in my neck and shoulder which improves my posture and sleep. My shoulder range of motion is back to where it was several years ago. Any future injuries I will go back to Dr. Jacobazzi before I see an orthopedist dr again.

    Dr. Dan and the staff at AJS helped me resolve pain that I had dealt with for 14 months. I was a NCAA Division 1 cross country/track athlete, and I was training and competing at a high level. During the spring of 2016, I injured my left hamstring in competition. The athletic trainers at my university did an evaluation, and they said that it would resolve itself with rest. After several weeks of not running, I showed little/no improvement (still painful to run/walk on), and they referred me to a physical therapist to do strengthening and rehabilitation exercises. I did the exercises religiously, and, after several weeks without improvement, I was advised to treat my injury as an irritated nerve (i.e the varying levels of pain were independent of any actual injury to my muscles). I resumed training, albeit at ~75% of the total volume that I normally ran; additionally, I could no longer do certain workouts (sprints, hills, fartleks). It was a difficult year, but I didn’t want this injury to take that season away. I then came to AJS in July of 2017 after my track season had ended. At that point, I was resolved not to run through my discomfort anymore. Dr. Dan and I talked about the origins of my injury, it’s progression through the past year, and what had helped/aggravated it. He did a chiropractic evaluation on me (testing my range of motion, strength of isolated muscles) as well as took x-rays of my spine. The evaluation showed what had been evident to every other person I’d seen for treatment: my glutes were weak/underactive (despite doing exercises regularly to strengthen them); however, his interpretation of the x-ray revealed why they remained weak: a misalignment in the lumbar region was applying pressure on the neural pathway that controlled glute activation, enough pressure that made signaling difficult. By doing regular adjustments, we could relieve this pressure and begin to strengthen the pathway and muscles, and this would take strain off of my hamstring and allow it to heal. I saw him regularly for about six weeks that summer, until the school year resumed, and I had to move away. I noticed significant improvement in those 6 weeks, and I was able to resume running again; more importantly, I know understand the underlying causes of my injury, and I was able to share Dr. Dan’s insights with the local physical therapist and chiropractor that I began to work with in order to continue making improvements. In the past year, I’ve been able to resume training and competing at my previous levels, and I was able to run personal bests in several events. I’ve also had regular contact with Dr. Dan, whether a monthly phone call or when I’m able visit the office. I’m grateful for the help he’s provided me, and for the new life he gave to my running career; additionally, I’m grateful for his willingness to explain the treatment process to me, so I could better understand my role in my rehabilitation.

    Align Joint & Spine has become a family affair for Team Mueller. When I first visited Dr. Dan he took xrays and it was immediately apparent why I kept having knee injuries from running. We started my therapy and got to talking. Turns out my entire family has similar issues. We have all been seeing Dr. Dan and it has helped immensely. I highly recommend Alight Joint & Spine to anyone who is bothered by any injury, soreness, stiffness, etc. Thank you to the whole team at Align!!

    From the first visit, everything about Align Joint & Spine was great. I always felt that my best interest was put first, and everything is always explained clearly. I always feel like a priority and the doctor always takes the time to answer any questions I have. My issues were addressed and I quickly began making process over the course of my custom-made plan. I highly recommend anyone experiencing back pain, neck pain, or additional injury to take the time to pay Dr. Dan a visit.

    Dr. Dan has made a serious impact in my life. I work a job that severely hurts my body and when I went to Dan I could barely stay bent over or kneeling for more than 10 minutes. After a initial exam and straight forward treatment plan, I feel 100% better. I'm more flexible and don't have the issue with my back locking up on me. I can't stress enough how amazing Dan's services have been in improving my quality of life.
