Patient Stories

New to the area… glad I found Dr. Kestner!

“I recently moved from Los Angeles to Murfreesboro, TN. I have been a long time advocate of the benefits of chiropractic and acupuncture. For the past 25+ years I have been seeing the same chiropractor and acupuncturist.

I honestly was fearful that leaving Los Angeles I would be unable to find comparable care to what I had been receiving all these years (not that anyone could replace Dr. Ira Schneider or Dr. LeRoy Griggs).
In the process of our move, I injured both ribs. As I reached into the moving van I heard 2 popping sounds.

In agony, I Googled and found Dr. Mark Kestner. I booked an appointment and saw him the very same day. His office staff is wonderful. I immediately liked Dr. Kestner’s manner and it put me at ease. I can honestly say that he has made my recovery quite speedy. Usually rib injuries take 4 to 8 weeks, depending upon the severity of the injury. It has been 2 weeks and the pain has lessened substantially, and I know I’m on the road to recovery.
Initially, we booked my appointments in advance, with 2 per week. But after my last appointment Dr. Kestner felt he only needed to see me once a week, because I was improving so rapidly. I attribute this directly to his care.
I would highly recommend Dr. Kestner to anyone who has any type of ailment, ache, pain, anxiety, hormonal imbalance, etc.

Chiropractic/acupuncture can work wonders on just about anything!! What are you waiting for??”

Acupuncture treatment for Allergies was Amazing

“A friend recommended acupuncture as a treatment for allergies. I suffer with this every Spring, as do so many people. This year seemed to be worse than most and nasal sprays and antihistamines weren’t doing the trick. After spending days of sneezing and watery eyes, I decided to give it a try.

I must admit to being apprehensive. This, combined with a general fear of needles made this not an easy decision.

The staff was very kind and the office was relaxing. Dr. Kestner explained the process as well as the expected results. I must admit to being a doubter and saw this procedure as more of a last ditch effort for relief. After the first few minutes, I actually did begin to notice the difference and by the end of the procedure, I was able to breath! My eyes cleared as did my sinus.

If you live in the Murfreesboro area and want to give acupuncture a try, I would highly recommend Dr. Mark Kestner!”

Excruciating Neck Pain

“I began treatment with Dr. Kestner for excruciating neck pain.
Prior to starting treatment with Dr. Kestner I had tried 3 1/2 months of physical therapy, exercises, hot and cold packs, and a lot of Aleve.
After undergoing the treatment process (with Dr. Kestner) I now have no pain in my neck!
The office is a very comfortable place to be. The office staff is so friendly and helpful.
Dr. Kestner is very easy to talk to and knows how to explain things so it’s easy to understand. He is intelligent, competent, and effective… Dr. Kestner get’s an A+.”

Back pain

“About 2 1/2 years ago I began having problems with my back. It has been a continuous pain that I just learned to live with, or take Advil or Motrin to try and help ease the pain.

After just TWO WEEKS with Dr. Kestner, I feel like a new person! Carrying around my 2-year-old is no longer a strain!”

Migraines and ear infections

“My son Tony had migraines for the last four years. Doctors tried medications which interfered with his ability to function. He had 13 ear infections in two years.

After his first adjustment, he has not had a migraine or ear infection. We are very excited that Tony has responded so well to the treatments.”

Sinus Infections

“I had a sinus infection every month for the last four months. After discussing this with Dr. Kestner, I followed his directions and treatment and I have not had a recurrence since.”

Scoliosis and Pregnancy

“I had originally come to the Kestner Clinic for treatment of my scoliosis. When I became pregnant I continued to see Dr. Kestner.

I continued treatment throughout my pregnancy and eagerly awaited my visits. It felt so good!

I saw Dr. Kestner right up until two weeks before I had my daughter. Not only does Dr. Kestner make my back feel better, but he always has an encouraging word and a hug for me. The encouragement was helpful for me as I lost the weight I had gained during pregnancy.”

Sleepless nights and back pain

“After several pain-filled sleepless nights and several visits to a medical specialist who prescribed pain relievers to no avail, I reluctantly decided to see a chiropractor.

I do not know the details, but I do know that once I had excruciating back pain and now I do not.”

-Dana

 

 Sinus and neck pain

“Surprisingly I found that my sinuses improved dramatically after Dr. Kestner treated my neck. I felt relief almost immediately. I had come to see Dr. Kestner previously for neck pain and had been helped. I had come in again because my neck was hurting and the muscles were in spasm.

Dr. Kestner treated my neck and it started improving. What really surprised me was that my sinuses, which had been severely congested, started opening up almost immediately. I had thought I would have to see my medical doctor and take drugs.”

-William

 

Chronic neck and back pain

“I am happy to say that I am completely free of lower back pain today and I have so much more flexibility in my neck. I am glad that there are no drugs involved and find this to be a very “common sense” way to help many complaints.

I have found Dr. Kestner and his staff to be both professional and enjoyable people who are there ready to offer assistance.”

Feeling younger and golfing better

“My back was in constant irritation, particularly when sleeping. After a year of (treatment) activity I feel better than I have in many years and now seldom if ever have back pain while sleeping.

I am also an avid golfer and my back had restricted my golf swing- after several adjustments with Dr. K- my swing is now more like a younger man… I’m frankly SURPRISED AND PLEASED – it works for me!”

No more Advil!!!

“I used to use Advil like it was going out of style… at least three times a week. It only numbed the neck and sinus pain I was experiencing.

A friend of mine had been coming to Dr. Kestner for about three months and was feeling great. She referred me and almost immediately I noticed results.”
