Richard's Testimonial - Richard began care with Dr. Scott Timko at Gonstead Physical Medicine on 07/29/2019 for complaints of right lower leg pain which varied between 0 and 6 depending on activity. He also noted numbness at the base of his foot and toes which was a constant 2 to 4. He noted that he had to significantly limit his physical activity due to the pain worsening. Since he is an avid tennis player and enjoys swimming and other outdoor activities, this was severely hindering his lifestyle. These symptoms had begun two years ago after an injury and no other treatment including Physical Therapy and Acupuncture had helped. After a 12-visit program his symptoms are almost completely eliminated. He is now able to play tennis for over two hours without a flare up of his symptoms and he has returned to all the activities he enjoyed prior to start of this problem two years ago.
Bob's Testimonial - Bob discusses his experience with Dr. Timko and Gonstead Physical Medicine including his recovery from chronic severe low back pain with radiating pain into his leg. He talks about lack of success with previous treatments with other physicians and his treatment protocol at our office. His success with chiropractic, spinal decompression, massage and therapeutic exercise was somewhat of a surprise to him considering the length of his condition, it's severity and his unresponsiveness to previous treatments. Robert was a joy to work with and it was a pleasure watching his progress during his care with us.

Faith J.'s testimonial
Before I started to seek treatment at Gonstead Physical Medicine my major complaint was severe mid to low back pain which could reach a level of 10. I could barely walk, let alone function at this point. I would drink wine, use over the counter medications, and rest every minute I had just to try and get rid of the pain. Dr. Timko, as well as the staff has been sensational with my treatments. I feel wonderful now and I have been becoming more active since my treatments. I am now able to cook for my family and perform regular activities without pain. I would recommend Dr. Timko to friends and family because he is very professional and knows exactly what is best for each patient. Everyone I have come in contact with in the office is wonderful. I like that the office is clean, light, and airy making it a wonderful place to seek treatment.
Charles H's testimonial:
The issue that brought me into Dr. Timko’s office was very painful muscle spasms in my left thigh. They made it impossible to walk upright or for distances longer than 20 feet. I tried using a heating pad and rest to solve the problem, but had no success. Dr. Timko and his staff began my recovery with muscle relaxing treatments to specific areas, followed by adjustments. As I progressed I was put on an exercise regimen to help strengthen and stabilize my spine. The results of my treatment has been a full recovery. I feel better than I did before the injury. Dr. Timko and his staff were very caring and responsive regarding my problem. They have helped me return to good health and I will recommend Dr. Timko to my friends and family.
Andrea S's testimonial:
Before coming to Timko Chiropractic I had pain in my neck, upper and lower back. I could not sit, stand or walk without discomfort. I tried heating pads, stretching and other chiropractors to get rid of my symptoms but nothing worked. Dr. Timko and his staff taught me focused stretching and adjusted me in ways that were the most beneficial for my body. Through treatment at Timko Chiropractic I now feel much better, maintain adjustments longer and have seen before and after X-rays proving curvature correction in my neck! I enjoy coming into Timko Chiropractic. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and makes me feel at home. I have recommended Dr. Timko to friends as well as family and will continue to do so.
Walter S's testimonial:
My major symptoms before coming to Dr. Timko were neck, shoulder and lower back pain and stiffness. The tension in my neck caused frequent headaches and limited my range of motion. My symptoms impacted my everyday life. I was unable to stand or walk for long periods of time, which lead to a decrease in activity. I tried to use exercise and stretching to get rid of my discomfort, but the headaches and pain made it too difficult. Dr. Timko and his staff started me on a focused physical therapy regimen along with his adjustments. The combination worked very well for me. I now have greater range of motion in my neck, decreased headache frequency and intensity, and less low back discomfort. While you can’t stop the aging process, you can make it easier by following a simple yet effective exercise routine along with getting adjusted. I feel welcome here at all times and was never made to feel any question was dumb. I would gladly recommend Timko Chiropractic to others.
Before seeing Dr. Timko I was experiencing lower back pain which radiated down my legs. The pain and being misaligned made walking and keeping my balance difficult. In order to address the issue my primary care physician recommended I seek out a “good chiropractor”. After receiving care from Dr. Timko I am completely cured and have resumed a normal life filled with walking, bike riding and dancing. I recommend Dr. Timko to my friends and family all the time!
I appreciate Dr. Timko's lectures. Most doctors don't give up their own time to educate their patients at no expense. There is a lot about natural medicine and chiropractic treatments that is new to me, and new ideas are out there every day. The lectures help me understand chiropractic adjustments and nutrition, and how they work together to heal.
I am grateful to finally have a chiropractor I would recommend in Dr. Timko. He actually listens when I explain my symptoms. His treatments always help.
Before seeing Dr. Timko I was having lower back pain as well as shoulder pain during the night.The pain limited me in all aspects of my everyday life. Dr. Timko is the only chiropractor I’ve seen besides one in Pennsylvania. The benefits after seeing Dr. Timko are a full restoration of my everyday activities. I now have no restrictions in movement and always leave the office pain free. I would recommend Dr. Timko to all my friends, family and anyone looking for an excellent chiropractor.
Problems like headaches, toothaches, dizziness were really bothering me. I was worried it could be something seriously wrong. Then I got an adjustment and those problems were gone. Now, if those problems come back, I just see Dr. Timko for a neck adjustment.
My back was stiff and sore. I thought I was just getting old and that was part of it. I was in a car accident, and that didn't help one bit. Dr. Timko worked on my back for weeks. When he released me, my back was much better.
I discovered that health problems and pains can happen just because one vertebrae is out of place. I used to be afraid that I might need to see specialists but after spinal adjustments, the symptoms were gone. Now I never consider seeing another doctor before I first try to cure the problem with one of Dr. Timko's adjustments.
Nutrition, organic foods, and supplements fascinate me because I've learned how powerful they can be to improve health. I have had several conditions that were turned around and healed with natural medicine supplements. Dr. Timko is a great source of information on healing and good health through nutrition. If I have a question about a new trend or product in natural health, and he isn't familiar with it, Dr. Timko says he will research it. Matched with his knowledge of human physiology, I respect and trust Dr. Timko's advice.
