"I first met Teresa Barrett in August or September of 1995 after a very bad head on auto accident. She was caring and very concerned regarding the injuries I sustained. I met her at a small office on Rogers Avenue and continued treatment from her through out the end of the year and into 1996 when she moved to an office on 32nd Street and York Road near Union Memorial Hospital. I would not go to anyone else because she was remarkable in the way she could ease my pain. I was seeing her almost everyday I could because the pain was so intense. She was very kind and patient with me, because many days I would come in there almost in tears if not in tears due to the pain. I followed again to CJB on Benson Avenue when she moved there and stayed with her into I believe 1997, when I was finally diagnosed with Thoracic Outlet Syndrome due to severe whiplash. If you have muscle pain, back and shoulder pain the way I did Teresa Barrett is the one to come too. Many times she would make time for me due to my pain, and you do not find anyone who will do that today.

Again in 2005 I was involved in another car accident, which triggered the old pain. I tried the services recommended to me by my current physician, but soon realized they did not live up to the standards and treatment Teresa Barrett has. I am so grateful that I met her, was treated by her and have been able to recommend her to many friends that I have that need her services."

“I had a shoulder problem for several months due to an accident. My shoulder began to give me sharp pains when I would move my arm certain ways or tried to lift things as light as my brief case. This continued, and as the pain became greater, my range of motion decreased. Dr. Rosa listened carefully as I described what I was dealing with, and took the time to explain to me the problem and diagnosis. He began using techniques that provided relief almost immediately. I experienced steady improvement in my shoulder, and now have full range of motion back and am no longer dealing with any pain. I would highly recommend anyone on staff with the Rosa practice.”

“Rosa Family Chiropractic is fantastic! I went in with a long time shoulder injury that has been bothering me over the years. I called up their office (was not put on hold) and was able to get a same-day appointment.

I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Rosa for approximately 2 or 3 weeks, and my shoulder has never felt better! I rarely waited longer than 5 minutes in the waiting room, and both doctors were very attentive during my visit. They spent time with me and I never felt rushed. My shoulder feels incredible, I able to enjoy everyday life, and more importantly play with my grandchildren!

Thank you to the Doctors and Staff at Rosa Family Chiropractic”

“Pain relief……FINALLY!: Well I went just about everywhere until my neurosuregon refereed me to Dr. Rosa. What a team they all worked together in an effort to solve my problem and always did it with a bright smile. They never made me feel like I was whining or crazy and always presented multiple options. I am so grateful to have my life back without pain. I would highly recommend them.”


"Dear Dr. Crivelli & Sandra,

You two are a great team. When I first came here in late April ’09 due to a car accident, I didn’t think the pain would go away. You did my assessment and assured me that I will heal, but of course it will take time and effort. And boy do I feel better!

Your personalities are exceptional, you’re friendly and patient (which I know is hard sometimes). I appreciate the care and attention which was given to me. Continue to be as great as you are. There are blessings awaiting you.

All your patients are in great hands. Thank you for the wonderful care."

Dr. Rosa Is the Best Chiro in the Metro Area!

"Dr. Rosa has been a been a great help. I suffer from a herniated disc, since he started treating me, I can happily say that I’m no longer in excruciating pain anymore. I get to do my daily activities with more energy and less pain. I absolutely recommend Dr. Rick Rosa."

Dr. Rosa Works With Your Doctor

"One of a kind: I went to just about every doctor you could imagine and finally found Dr. Rosa. He was the only one that was able to take time work with my primary care doctor and find a solution. His staff is outstanding and I have refereed friends and family to his clinic. He is a top notch doctor and overall great guy."


Drs. Rosa are incredible at what they do!

"Upon my first appointment, I had such severe TMJ, I could not open the right side of my mouth, I had severe headaches to the point of numbness, and I was five years due of necessary treatment. I was diagnosed to have one of the worst cases of lateral facial mis-allignment with no guarantee of complete treatment. After a few weeks of intense treatment and the incredible commitment and talent of Drs. Rosa, I have no symptoms or memory of my TMJ and it has been months since my last treatment. The office itself is a relaxing and comfortable mid-work day treat. They are respectful of busy work day schedules while keeping you committed to your complete recovery. From the personable front desk staff to both Drs. Rosa, I have had an incredible experience. When you need treatment for something that involves an extended commitment, you want to choose a place that you WANT to go to. With the Rosa Family Chiropractors, you are choosing treatment from a welcoming team of people who are great at what they do!"

Post Surgical Rehab-Hip

"I had high energy fractures in my right hip and femur from a motorcycle accident and “threw a dart” at my preferred provider directory to find a physical therapist when my orthopedic surgeon said I was ready for PT. I am so happy that my dart landed on Rick Rosa. He was outstanding from the beginning. He knew just the right things to say to get me motivated to do my exercises in his office and at home, and the exercises he recommended got me back to excellent mobility, strength, and lack of pain in just a couple of weeks. He advised me that his facility might not be equipped to handle my injuries and that I might need to go to a bigger place if I didn’t improve, but that never happened because I improved with each visit to Rick. He worked my leg hard and to the pain threshold during office visits, but it always felt fantastic by the end of each session. Then I had the luxurious massage chair and electrodes and a heating pad on my knee to look forward to as my reward (my right knee had atrophied due to disuse of the leg and damage to the ligaments). I highly recommend Rick as a physical therapist for anything from the smallest muscle knot to the most severe bone fracture. He is up on the latest literature and is willing to try experimental treatments such as kinesio tape (a la Kerri Walsh from the women’s beach volleyball team) and the cold laser."

- Kristina


Professional and Courteous

"Dr’s Rosa have been treating me for the last few months. They are professional and courteous with no frills or fluff. The treatment has been extremely beneficial to me and has allowed me to carry on with activities that I had discontinued due to pain and stiffness. I would highly recommend Rosa Family Chiropractic for immediate or long-term care!!"

Auto Accident

"Excellent chiropractics. Since my car accident I have been going to Dr Rosa, they had help me with their good practices and advice concerning my health. Thank you. I would recommend them to any one who needs help to recovered from any accident. Thank you Dr. Rosa."

"Throughout my last four years of high school the health of my back has been anything but healthy. During my basketball season freshmen year, my back began to act up, causing me immense pain throughout my lower back and leg. The orthopedist determined I had a stress fracture, which caused me to sit out of practice for eight weeks. I came back the next season as a sophomore, healthy and ready to play. However, around the same time, my back pain came back. This time I went to a different orthopedist who told me that I had a hip flexor tear because of the pain in that area. However, nothing he gave me helped, and I went to a spine doctor who, through an MRI, thought I has spondylosis. This information came with even worse news– my spine doctor informed me that with this condition, playing sports wasn’t an option. I sat out my entire junior year from basketball, and when I was a senior, I injured my back again. I was doing simple stunt with my friends, when the pain in my back came back. I saw the same spine doctor who gave me the same information as last time. I was determined to feel better, and my aunt referred me to Dr. Rosa. When I went to see him, he looked at all of my old films and told me that my injury could be treated in two to three weeks. At first, I didn’t believe a word he was saying, but after I had four treatments my back was feeling seventy percent better. I was amazed on how this injury that had been preventing me from playing the sport I loved was fixed in a week. I continued to see Dr. Rosa for the following three weeks, and today I am pain free. He really turned my life around, and now I play basketball without any back pain or fear of injuring my back."

"I have had the opportunity to benefit from the experience and expertise of Dr. John Rosa and the staff at Accessible Beltway Clinics, Rockville, MD, since 2001. I would be remiss if I did not take this opportunity to thank them and their staff for their outstanding commitment and perseverance to ensure that not only was I treated for my low back disc compression, but that I truly received the care I needed is evidence of their dedication and skill toward their work as doctors in the chiropractic field. I feel that I have benefited from their knowledge as well as their quality of work preformed.

Additionally, their staff is always professional and courteous, and have gone out of their way to assist me with any question or need. The staff’s willingness to provide “whatever is necessary” is characteristic of the outstanding professionalism they all exhibit in their daily duties. I appreciate this opportunity to bring to their attention that I would never trust anyone else with my back. May the doctors never retire!

The doctors and staff of ABC Clinics’ willingness and professionalism are a tribute not only to the patients they care for, but the community as a whole."

- Joni R.


"I have had residual back issues since high school. I tried another chiropractor and felt worse than before I went in there. I went to Rosa with little to no expectation since my recent Chiropractic experience was so miserable. They actually listened to what I had to say. Within the first visit I was feeling results. They are a wonderful facility and I won’t go anywhere else. Your pain can go away with the proper treatment."

- Stacey


"I have been going to Dr. Rosa chiropractic for numerous years, and always feel like my needs are listened to in order for them to help and get me back on my feet and enhance my ability to a better life."

- Lisa


"I was involved in a car accident and after the accident I was suffering from headaches, upper back and neck pain. My family doctor insisted on me taking anti -inflammatories but after 2 months I only felt I had corrected 10% of the pain. Within just 2 weeks of treatment with Dr. Chen, I felt a huge improvement (about 90% to be exact) especially in my neck area. I am now back to my old self."

- Susan D.


"Thank you for helping Sarah feel better! I really appreciate the way you helped us out in this whole mess. We are really grateful she was able to start going to your office within the week of our accident. I also want to thank you for helping me with my migraines! You basically took them away so that I don’t get them anymore! We honestly know you are the best Chiropractor known to mankind! =) We greatly appreciated it all Dr.!

Thanks again!"

"Dear Dr. Cramer,

As you are aware, I have been suffering from extreme neck and shoulder pain for the past several months. as the discomfort became unbearable recently, I, on the advice of a dear friend, visited your office several weeks ago. My medical doctor, in an effort to determine the cause of my pain, had referred me to several specialists, and had undergone numerous procedures, including a CT scan.

I have to admit I was very skeptical about my visit. Although, as you probably recall, I was virtually unable to hold my head erect, the specialists and the tests had revealed nothing out of the ordinary. I was beginning to feel hopeless and depressed. I’ve read many stories about people who are eventually referred to psychiatrists because the pain “is all in their head”.

Upon my very first visit, you performed a thorough exam and upon receiving my first adjustment, I promptly burst into tears, not because it hurt, but because there was such a sense of relief rushing through my body I became overwhelmed temporarily. From that day to this, I have increasingly felt better and better with each visit. My attitude has improved ten-fold, physically I am feeling more like my old self again, only better!

It is not often that I am so inspired to write a letter of praise, but I wanted to take a moment to relate to you how very grateful I am, not only your professionalism and expertise, but your gentle kindness and caring mannerisms. You are a wonderful Doctor of Chiropractic, and you’ve made a believer out of me.

God Bless You,"

- Cynthia J.


"Dear Dr. Cramer,

Merry Christmas! Greg and I didn’t want to let the holidays pass without thanking you for the wonderful care you and your office have given us. When we think back on the past year we realize how much has changed for us. And even though both Greg and I have experienced painful periods, we realize we can see how greatly blessed we are.

What a blessing it turned out to be that Greg chose your office for chiropractic care! God Himself must’ve guided his hand. It’s difficult to explain how dramatically you’ve changed our lives. You relieved Greg’s neck pain within weeks, then undoubtedly saved his life be referring us to an Ear, Nose, & Throat specialist (instead of a sleep clinic, as others had suggested) for his snoring problem.

Then bit by bit, one adjustment at a time, your optimism and positive energy propelled me (almost in spite of myself) to a fuller life. Now, mostly pain-free AND exercising again (hooray!), I feel like a new person. Even though I know I’ll have a long period of reconditioning ahead of me, now I feel that I can manage my health and proactively maintain it (with your help). Every suggestion you have made has proven helpful — everything from daily stretching to the Atkins diet!

For all of this we are profoundly grateful. Thank you for your patience and encouragement, for your humor and your strength. May God bless you, your family, and all those He has entrusted to your care.

Sincerely,"

- Tracy & Greg P.


"I first came to Perry Hall Chiropractic when I had a hard time walking very far or for very long. I had a really messed up spine- herniated disks and other problems. I guess my problems began with a few falls over many years. I’m 74 and I really didn’t want my retirement years to be years of pain.

Slowly, over the past 9 years my being able to walk got worse to the point when I decided I didn’t want to end up in a wheelchair, or worse. I saw an orthopedist and a neurologist and both said as long as I was doing as well as I was (at the time) I should do nothing. But over the last 3-4 years my back pain has gotten much much worse.

After I started coming here I can honestly say I can walk longer and easier. Not by much, but this problem didn’t come on overnight and it can’t be fixed in a short time. But it is a little better. It’s just going to take time."

"I first came to Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy on Thursday, August 25, 2011 because I was having extreme pain in my left shoulder. I have had neck and back pain for about 23 years ever since I suffered whip lash from a car accident in 1988. The pain would come and go. Sometimes the pain was mild, but mostly it was severe. Twice I had muscle spasms and couldn’t move my head or get up from a laying position. I was also put on muscle relaxers for the spasms. In 2000 I was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome by a general practice doctor and was given Cortisone shots in both wrists, but those wore off over time. Because of the neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain and carpal tunnel, I was very slow at work, taking me twice as long to do my job and I was very irritable. It affected my relationship with my son because the pain put me in a very bad mood. After starting my treatments at Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy the extreme pain was gone immediately and I knew that I had made the right choice when I came to Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy. Chiropractic care is something everyone should do because the benefits are far beyond just spinal health. Not only am I no longer having pain, but my mental health and emotional state are better than they have ever been. I truly believe that it is because of my treatments at Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy."

"I first came to Perry Hall Chiropractic because I was suffering from headaches. I had headaches for at least 9 months before my primary care doctor decided to send me for treatment. The headaches would interfere with everyday life and sometimes make me miss work. My primary care doctor treated me with prescription medications that would sometimes take the headache away temporarily but never solved the problem. After the first month of treatment at Perry Hall Chiropractic I started learning ways to prevent headaches which is helping me to have less of them. I am happy with the progress I’m seeing and hope I continue to get better.

Thank You!"

"I first came to Perry Hall Chiropractic and Physical Therapy after a recommendation from my family care physician. I had been suffering severe back pain after being released from hospitalization for another condition. The only relief I enjoyed was from pain medication. The toll the pain took a daily basis was considerable. It took me am hour to get out of bed each morning. Dressing for the day took about a half hour. Showering was next to impossible. I had a great difficulty simply walking and needed a cane for my balance. Under the care and treatment of Dr. Heil it was determined that my spine had assumed an un-natural curvature and needed correction. The initial treatment was a different “grin and bear it” situation, but once I had gone beyond that stage it was a relatively quick and easy treatment. In a few months I had little pain and treatments became fewer and farther between. In a few months I was pain free and back to a normal lifestyle. My quality of life has turned around 180 degrees."

"It was approximately one moth ago, I cam to the Chiropractic Office for help. I had severe pain in both knees. I had visited Patient First where I was diagnosed with Arthritis in both knees. During my initial visit with the chiropractic office I was skeptical with pain was severe and I was looking for a quick fix. The problem was effecting my walking, standing and simple movements. I later started using a walking cane to take some of the pressure off my knees. I was talking Aleve approximately every four hours; the pain was not as severe with the Aleve. However, my skepticism was the fact the Dr. Heil had suggested a natural supplement to rebuild my knees and nothing for the pain. He merely suggested that I get in for the treatment program he had planned for my knees. For the first couple of weeks nothing changed. I was in severe pain and I was wondering if this really would work. I did not say this to Dr. Heil but was questioning if I was doing the right thing. On one of my visit he stated, just keep coming. I indicated I would and I did. Within one month the pain subsided. It was no longer severe. It currently feels like a would that is beginning to heal. I am use to the therapy sessions and cannot wait to start exercising the knees with more specific exercises germane tp joints. My skepticism is gone and I look forward to the treatment and have a heighten respect for the profession. I want to personally thank Dr. Heil and the entire staff for both the treatment program and the professional care provided each time I arrive."

"I began suffering from hip bursitis in September, 2010, and was unable to run in a 5k for charity as planned. I saw an orthopedic doctor and went to physiotherapy once a week for two months with limited success. I would feel better for a day or two, but even moderate walking exacerbated the pain. Because of the chronic pain and contact flare-ups, I had gone from running three miles on a treadmill several times a week to being unable to walk at all without pain. I went from exercising almost daily to not being able to exercise at all. My husband and I had frequently taken walks together, and we were unable to do this. Even walking a few blocks from my parking space to my office building exacerbated the bursitis. I sometimes travel for work, and rather than look forward to seeing new places, I began to dread the extra walking this might require. I began to wonder if a handicap sticker was in my future.

My husband Craig injured his back doing a home improvement project in mid-December. he was initially paralyzed with pain and unable to stand or walk. He was taken by paramedics to the emergency room, where an x-ray revealed several herniated discs in his lower back. He saw an orthopedic surgeon two weeks later, who recommended Perry Hall Chiropractic. After two or three weeks of chiropractic case, My husband had improved significantly. he had much less pain, and the numbness in his foot had improved some.

Since I was making little progress with traditional physiotherapy, my husband recommended I come to Perry Hall Chiropractic. I was examined in late December, 2010, and told that much of the pain I described did not fit the classic profile of bursitis. I was x-rayed again, and they noticed problems in my lower spine, and suggested that this was causing a great deal of referred pain. I began treatments with Dr. Heil, and after a few weeks, noticed more improvement that I had experienced in two months of traditional physiotherapy. I am making progress, and after just three weeks, I am able to walk with much less pain and can exercise on an elliptical for 20-30 minutes

The women who work in the office, Shannon and Linda, are an asset to the practice. Shannon is always very personable and accommodating on the front desk, and Linda is unfailingly cheerful and helpful to all patients."

"I came to Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy for the first time on January 19, 2011. I have had an extremely painful case of sciatica, which has constantly been shooting down my back and right leg since April, 2009. This greatly hampers my ability to sit for eight hours a day at work, exercise in the evenings, go on car/plane trips and perform basic recreational activities. I have seen two other Chiropractors, but did not find the relief I was looking for. I have been treated for two weeks at Perry Hall Chiropractic and Physical Therapy and have already seen great strides in improvement. The doctors took time to sit down and thoroughly discuss any questions or concerns I had. They paid great attention to how I explained my body reacted to prior unsuccessful treatments and they were able to develop a unique plan which has already shown positive results. I would highly recommend using their services if you feel its time to finally get healed!!"

- J.D.


"I came to Perry Hall Chiropractic because I could not turn my head without extreme pain. I don’t know how it happened, I just wanted it fixed. I could not work and perform my normal activities due to this problem. Perry Hall chiropractic was my first and only choice I made to have my problem corrected. In less than 9 visits I can work, play basketball and enjoy all my daily activities with no pain. Now that I am feeling better, I have no problem attending periodic chiropractic visits. Thanks to the great work done for me at Perry Hall Chiropractic my spine is working like a new one. No more subluxation problems. The staff at Perry Hall Chiropractic are the greatest people on earth. Give them a chance to help you with your concerns and you will NEVER regret it!

One Happy Patient!"


"I came to Perry Hall Chiropractic and Physical Therapy because I had such horrible pain across my lower back and down my legs that I could no longer do the things I enjoyed. I could not even take a short walk without having to stop and sit down much less ride a tractor, work in the fields farming, go fishing, or do yard work. I felt like my life had stopped. I figured my back hurt so much because I had pent most of my life doing hard, physical labor and that it had finally caught up with me. As a farmer and florist, I had to do a lot of heavy lifting, bending, kneeling, and stooping. I was told about 35 years ago that my disks were deteriorating. By the time I reached the age of 84 I didn’t think anyone could help me. I had been taking Vioxx, but it didn’t help. I thought I was ready for the rocking chair. One day I was sitting around miserable when my wife read an ad in the newspaper about your treatment for back pain. I asked my family doctor about it and he said I should give it a try. My daughter investigated it and brought me to my first visit. I started feeling better after 3 weeks. After 2 1/2 months of treatment, I can stand up straighter, walk without losing my balance, and ride my lawn tractor. I am much less irritable and ready to enjoy the summer."

"At 57 years of age, I have been suffering with severe hip bursitis for nearly 6 years now. I have been unsuccessfully treated by orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and have had acupuncture therapy. I have taken pain medications and received several cortisone shots and was taking large doses of anti-inflammatory medications daily. The bursitis in my hip affects my daily living, both in my personal life and in my business career. I have been unable to walk without pain and even small trips to the grocery stores have been difficult. I have been unable to take my grandchildren to the park or go places that required walking, like the zoo. Everything I did requires thought as to how much walking was involved. Most of the time, the pain brought me to a complete stop and was accompanied by tears. I truly thought I was headed for a wheelchair. After less then 3 weeks of therapy by Dr. Heil, I am now 90% pain free. I am able to walk without pain. Just putting those words in writing and thinking those thoughts is somewhat of a miracle for someone who has experienced the level of pain that I was dealing with on a daily basis for such a long time."

- D.O.


"I am a triathlete so injuries are bound to occur. I had been dealing with pain in my left shoulder and lower back for quite sometime. This was my first experience with a chiropractor so I was hesitant. Dr. Heil made me feel comfortable right away. He were patient and explained the anatomy of my body and the factors leading to my symptoms. The process was gradual, but with each visit my posture improved and the pain decreased. It has been 7 months, and I have come a long way. I am sleeping better at night and I do everything I used to without pain. I am happy to say I am a firm believer in chiropractic care."

- K.R.


"My first chiropractic experience was really 18 years ago. Sciatica was the diagnosis given by the neurosurgeon with a very strong recommendation for surgery on my spine. He stated there was a chance, even with my back operation, that I could still be in chronic pain! With personal knowledge of friends who had undergone unsuccessful spine surgery, I decided to contact a chiropractor for treatment. I originally needed to constantly readjust my position for comfort every 5 minutes making sitting, sleeping or standing virtually impossible! Realizing it would require a considerable amount of time to remedy my situation & not accept an overnight miracle, I began chiropractic care. Within 10 months I was again able to function normally with minimal discomfort. What a relief! My current condition prompted my revisit due to severe numbness & tingling in my lower back, legs & feet. I was also experiencing radiating shoulder, neck & buttock pain. My primary care physician & orthopedist had previously prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs and pain medication that only seemed to exasperate my system & created other problems. I also tried physiotherapy with unsatisfactory results. My symptoms were masked & not being treated properly in my estimation. I own & operate a restaurant that requires me to be a optimum performance. I also do not want to settle for lesser quality in my personal life. I have been honored to receive exemplary care & service from Dr. Heil & the staff at the Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy team. Thanks for renewing my zest for life!"

"I, James Daniel, decided to come to Dr. Heil in hopes of improving my chronic and problematic back condition. I’ve suffered from this persistent back problem for 7 years now. Through years of battling this condition, I’ve finally succumbed to the fact that I need professional care that I have long desired. Over the years I have found my condition to be counter productive: not just my physical well-being, but also to my emotional well-being. I have dealt with my fair share of mood swings and frustration, which I attribute to the pain and discomfort that I endured in regards to my back condition. 4 years ago I chose to receive chiropractic care for this lingering issue, but my insurance wouldn’t allow me to pursue chiropractic care. I had received 3 treatments at the time that my insurance declined further care. As of the point, I had noticed there to be an improvement thus far. The methods that were used was to “crack” my back manually, and the use of a roller machine; I also had been receiving manual massages. It appeared that I might have been on a slow road to recovery, but that had yet to be determined. Now, 4 years later I found myself to venture down the path of recovery once again. I was prescribed spinal decompression treatment for my condition. Approximately 2-3 weeks into my treatment plan, I had noticed a significant difference in my improved condition. With the prescribed treatment of spinal decompression; the use of an activator for realignment; and back roller machine, my condition has improved 110%. I would give full recommendation to anyone who is considering receiving professional care at this facility. Not only is the medical treatment prescribed a factor of my endorsement to receiving care at Perry Hall Chiropractic & Physical Therapy office, but the way in which I am cared for is also a reason for my approval. Doctor Heil care for each patient with the up most sincerity and diligence. It is one thing to perform a service because that it what one’s profession requires, but it is another to go above and beyond that to provide a service with a genuine approach for one’s well-being. This is exactly what I have received from Dr. Heil  and the staff. I would like to commend the staff at Perry Hall Chiropractic and the doctors responsible for my improved condition, and I would recommend them as a friend and patient."

"I always thought aches and pains were a fact of life once you reached your fifties or sixties. Eating healthy was an interval achievement for me. Exercise was only a good thing when somebody else did it. As I look back, I guess I’ve suffered for more than twenty years with neck pain as well as shoulder pain. I said it was carpel tunnel. The pains in my neck sometimes caused me to wake up from sleep in tears. Sometimes I took pain relievers, or just stayed awake until the pain subsided (perhaps 4 or 5 am). My sister who lives out-of-state would constantly scold me and encourage me to see a chiropractor. Chiropractor? I don’t know what that is or how to spell it. She reminded me of a cake I tried to make once, it was lop-sided and uneven. I was disgusted and disappointed so I threw it out and bought one at the store. I said so what’s your point? She said when things in life are not as we except or out of line it makes us unhappy. We feel bad. Our spines can be out of line for years and can affect how we walk and how we feel. We may take pain relievers, buy shoes we don’t necessarily like but think they will feel better then the last $100.00 + pair we bought. I can’t dispose of my neck and shoulders because they hurt, so why not try getting adjusted and lined up? Finally, I got the point and took her advice. I have visited Dr. Heil for a consultation, review of x-rays and actual treatment for about six or more times. It appears that my treatment will continue into ten or more weeks. I have been experiencing less and less sharpness and pain in my neck. And I have not once been awakened by pain since I’ve started. I feel no discomfort in the shoulders at all! If my treatments are a month or two in relief, what is that compared to twenty years of pain and discomfort? Thanks Sis! I now know a little more than just the spelling of chiropractor so…

Thank as well to Dr. Heil."

“Dr. Rosa is very knowledgeable and treats his patients with respect. He takes his time to thoroughly answer questions and has truly listened to what my concerns are as well as educated me on the procedures being used in my treatment. I don’t feel that he is just out to make a buck by rushing me in and out while selling me things at marked up rates that I really don’t need. This office setting itself could use a facelift but for the quality of care and the friendly staff, I don’t mind the ugly building."

“Amazing PLACE! I have had a herniated disc for years and they were able to make me feel like i am bran new 🙂 The staff in the office were amazing.The docs were fabulous and very attentive. I am looking forward to returning to this office for further treatment. If you have any Chiropractic needs i highly recommend this practice 🙂 Very pleased with they’re ability to perform a comfortable environment for all their patients. As a MA it felt amazing the way i was treated :)”

“From the moment I walked in I was treated with the up most respect. The office was supper clean and i was in and out in under 30 minutes. The staff is very personable and friendly. The Dr. actually came in early to work around my schedule. I highly recommend Rosa Family Chiropractic of Alexandria. I’ve never been a fan of any doctor however this office definitely changed my perspective.”

“Rosa Family Chiropractic is fantastic! I went in with a long time shoulder injury that has been bothering me over the years. I called up their office (was not put on hold) and was able to get a same-day appointment.”
