Relief and natural healing


11 years ago, I was diagnosed with “fibromyalgia.” I was treated with several drugs to fix the imbalance in the brain chemistry. With these I became sicker. I decided to use all natural treatments instead of drugs, but still was not satisfied. The aches and pain continued to invade my body.

Following up on my condition, I decided to visit Dr. Packer. After testing and diagnosis Dr. Packer discovered nerve interference caused by a misalignment of my spine. Dr. Packer’s chiropractic adjustments are correcting the nerve interference. Relief and natural healing are in progress. Chiropractic has changed my way of life physically, mentally, and socially. I highly recommend a visit.

No more meds!

I have to say, when I first saw the Fibromyalgia advertisement that Dr. Packer put in the newspaper, I was skeptical to say the least. But because of Fibromyalgia I was in so much pain and agony I had nothing to lose. I walked with a cane and needed assistance with dressing…just touching me could cause severe pain. Over the years I had tried meds for various medical problems.

Bad reactions to a lot of medications made it impossible for me to get any relief from pain or other symptoms. I had gone to another chiropractor many years ago with no help. After Dr. Packer’s Fibromyalgia treatment my severe Fibromyalgia pain is minimal – on most days it’s gone – No more meds!Show More

Muscle spasms gone, numbness mostly gone, walking problems almost gone, facial pain gone, migraines gone – no more meds. My shoulder problem that was freezing up and was almost useless because of pain, swelling and tenderness has lessened considerably. My swollen, red joints improved. My gastrointestinal reflux seems to be under control and my irritable bowel syndrome is gone – no more meds. I sleep on my back all the time now, never could before. I have more energy and strength than I have in years. I don’t have terrible sleepless nights anymore. Thanks to Dr. Packer I am living life again; mind you I am still somewhat restricted and have good days and bad. The good days more than out weigh the bad. Living without constant pain has made me a happier, healthier person. Thank you Dr. Packer for all you have done to make my life livable.

I have mobility and flexibility


Approximately two years ago, I started experiencing low back pain. At first I thought it was muscular, brought on by strenuous lifting or activity at work (nursing), but it became progressively worse. I also started experiencing leg pain, abdominal discomfort, gastrointestinal problems, and weight gain secondary to decreased mobility and activity.

I felt tired all of the time but had difficulty falling asleep and my back hurt every morning, making it painful to get out of bed. I went to my doctor, who ordered tests with negative results. He said “take it easy”, prescribed anti-inflammatorys for my back and laxatives for my GI problems, and said ” you will feel better when you lose a little weight”.Show More

I felt miserable and frustrated. I knew something was wrong and nobody would listed or believe me. Then one day in April, I received a pamphlet in the mail offering help to people suffering from low back pain. I read the pamphlet and immediately called to make an appointment, which was two-three days later, and I couldn’t wait. When I met Dr. Packer I was relieved when he said I was a good candidate for his care and he actually gave me a diagnosis of Subluxation. Finally, somebody believed that my symptoms were real, and could actually help me.

Dr. Packer explained how subluxation/nerve interference caused my particular symptoms. I have been in treatment with Dr. Packer for 4 months now and I already feel a dramatic improvement. I have no problems falling asleep or getting out of bed, I have mobility and flexibility, hardly no pain in my back, and much less discomfort. I have more energy. I learned a lot from Dr. Packer already, like causes for subluxations and how important chiropractic care is. I don’t know where I would be right now or how I would be without Dr. Packer. I feel like a new person. Thank you Dr. Packer.

I feel like a complete new person

For over eighteen years I have been suffering neck and lower back pain, and pain in my legs. I have gone to my medical doctor and he told me my neck pain was from STRESS and the rest of my aches and pains was ”old age creeping on me” and never did anything to find out why I couldn’t sleep at night or sit on my couch because of pain in my legs.

For some months now the pain got worse and my left arm and left leg started to go numb. That really scared me. I talked to a co-worker and told her about it, and she told me about her chiropractor and how much he has helped her.Show More

Next morning I called Dr. Packer’s office for an appointment and they took me right away. I didn’t have to wait weeks or months. Dr. Packer examined me very thoughtfully and took X-rays. He told me that I was suffering from SUBLUXATION and explained to me that with treatment I could get better. It has been two months and I feel like a complete new person. Most of my aches and pains are gone and with time I will be good as new. Everybody should see a chiropractor as a routine. All I can say now is ”THANK YOU DR. PACKER” you have made me feel good again. You are the ”BEST”. Wish I had known about you years ago.

I am pain free


Not anytime in my life did I think I would need the help of a chiropractor. Twelve years ago I injured my shoulder and that caused me to have a very painful pinched nerve in my neck. I was a very busy carpenter in my own business, and I didn’t have time for this awful pain I was experiencing.

After several appointments with my PCP the pain wasn’t getting better, in fact it was getting worse. In constant pain with no relief, missed time from work and many sleepless nights, I was beside myself.Show More

My daughters remembered reading an article about a woman going through the same thing I was going through. She decided to seek the help of a chiropractor. She made an appointment with Dr. Packer. In her own words she explained her experience with Dr. Packer as “a complete miracle”. Just after a few adjustments she was able to return to her daily routine. Her only regret was that she hadn’t gone sooner. So I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Packer and he was able to help me with my problem too.

However, a few months ago I injured my back. I was experiencing pain down my legs and my lower back. Once again I went to my PCP for help. He took x-rays, gave me pain medication and sent me home. Over the next two weeks it went from bad to worse. So bad I had to use a walker to get around. Once it got better my PCP recommended I go to physical therapy. After the second visit I had to stop going because the pain was so bad. I was back to square one. I then remembered what Dr. Packer had done for me in the past and contacted him to see if he could help. Once again sure enough after a few adjustments I was feeling better. Not only was I feeling better but my blood pressure, cholesterol, and PSA numbers were all down! Call it coincidence but since my visits with Dr. Packer my overall health couldn’t be better.

Thanks to Dr. Packer I am pain free, back on my feet, and riding my motorcycle once again! A big difference from a few months ago.

Now I’m a health fanatic!


Hello! My name is Sarah Robert, I’m nineteen years old, but my body wasn’t feeling like a nineteen year olds until I started seeing Packer Chiropractic. July 31st 2005 I was involved in a car accident that truly changed my life physically and emotionally. I can’t even begin to tell you how much chiropractic care has changed my life mentally, but even more physically. Ever since I’ve been going to Dr. Packer’s office I’ve been given new hope! Which is I don’t have to keep living my life with pain.Show More

I went to Dr. Packer’s office for my painful migraines, neck pain, and symptoms of fibromyalgia that I was dealing with for three years (since the accident). The chiropractic care has greatly decreased all my pain tremendously. It’s amazing how something so natural can cure pain and help other health problems. My other health problems were anxiety, heart problems, difficulty sleeping, and irregular bowel movements, but all of that is completely gone now! I’m medication free, but most importantly I have almost everyday a pain free day! Before seeing Dr. Packer I didn’t care about eating healthy or watching what I put into my body, but now I’m a health fanatic! I realized what you put into your body also plays a big role in how you feel physically!!

PS: Exercise is very important!

Education & Pain Relief

In the past, I visited a chiropractor to find relief from recurring neck stiffness and later to deal with the trauma associated with a rear-end collision. As soon as the symptoms improved, I discontinued the appointments. This was mainly due to my limited understanding of chiropractors as back pain relievers.

I was pleasantly surprised when my mother got relief from the agony of fibromyalgia through treatment at Packer Chiropractic. So when I was in a minor car accident, Dr. Packer was the natural choice to help me with the terrible stiffness settling into my neck and back.Show More

I received not only pain relief, but more importantly an education in the importance of spinal care to overall wellness. Once I clearly understood the relationship, I opted for a maintenance plan of care. It has become increasingly rare, to find someone my age (very young) who is not on medications for one thing or another. I prefer the chiropractic approach.

Taken off medication


For two years I suffered numbness and tingling in my right leg and foot, lower back stiffness and pain, high blood pressure and seasonal allergies. Over that same period of time to self medicated, I consumed what seemed to be hundreds of pain killers and was put on blood pressure and allergy medications.

After receiving chiropractic care here at Packer Family Chiropractic I feel like a new person. I’ve been taken off my high blood pressure medication, have had no use for pain killers, and to top it off when allergy season comes around I hardly know the purpose of a Kleenex tissue. Needless to say, I’m very happy with the outcome brought about by my chiropractic adjustments. Thanks Dr. Packer and staff.

Pain has gone away


I first came to Dr. Packer’s office because of the pain I was experiencing in my lower back. It had reached a point that I could not function properly in my normal life. I was having problems sleeping for more than two or three hours at a time because the pain would cause me to wake.

With my first visits Dr. Packer was able to relieve the majority of the pain. My back has grown stronger and the pain has gone away. I now am again leading a very active life, skiing, rollerblading, skating, going to the gym, surfing, hiking rock climbing and playing all sports with my children. It has given my life back. With continued visits my eyesight has even improved! You have made my life more enjoyable.

I can do almost everything and more

Before I started with Dr. Packer I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, different types of arthritis, all kinds of stuff. For three and one half years I worked with five doctors at four different hospitals having MRI’s, going on drug trials, the whole ‘ten yards’. What happened was I just continued to get worse. A year and a half ago I was so bad I was confined to bed.

I read about Dr. Packer’s clinic in the paper and my husband brought me over. The care I have received has been excellent. I have no drugs in my system; I don’t have to rely on them. I’m able to go back to work, I can drive, I can do my own housework, my yard work. In fact I can do almost everything and more than I have been able to do in say five or six years. If I stop coming I have the feeling that I would revert gradually back to the way I was and I would be back on the pain pills, addicted again.

— Sandy Munro, Pembroke, MA –

Much improved

I had frequent headaches before starting treatment with Dr. Packer. My headaches, neck pain, and back pain are all much improved. I plan on continuing treatment with Dr. Packer. When my neck is out of line, my headaches, neck and back pain return, but Dr. Packer is able to adjust me and relieve the symptoms and pain.

Exercise and spinal molding have made a difference


7 months ago left hip pain at a level 7-8 out of 10 on the pain scale brought me to realize things were not getting any better. Now under chiropractic care for subluxations in my spine, my left hip pain and tenderness is at a level 1 during the day. Sure I have flare ups when I over do things but no where near the level of 7 months ago. Exercise and spinal molding have made a difference in helping to maintain proper alignment for sure.

— Elizabeth C, R.N., Middleboro, MA –

95% pain free


Upon walking to get my mail I was struck with agonizing pain in my shoulders and upper arms. I couldn’t move. I saw Dr. Packer’s advertisement in the newspaper and sent for his brochure. He examined me and I started treatment for subluxation. It was approximately two weeks and I was 95% pain free.

I could now sleep in my bed, not a chair. I could walk and not have my leg muscles cramp. I could lift grocery bags and do everyday chores – pain free. Being faithful to Dr. Packer’s program allows me to enjoy everyday activities. I have been educated about my problem and I have become emotionally and physically stress free. I now know how to handle myself and help myself. I can not believe that people would not try this pain free, non intrusive treatment to rid themselves of their pain. Ignorance is not bliss.

Able to golf again!


Prior to seeking treatment from Dr. Packer, I was getting headaches on a daily basis. The pain would originate on either side of my head near the base of the skull.

After my very first treatment with Dr. Packer the pain immediately went away and I have not head any headaches originating at the base of my skull. Also, I had a very sore lower back. Dr. Packer has done a tremendous job of adjusting me; to the point that I no longer have lower back pain.Show More

My original x-rays indicated that I had a mild scoliosis. After 3 months of treatment, my x-rays have already shown that my spine is much straighter than when I first began treatment with Dr. Packer. Much of what I have learned is how the spine connects every facet of our body. If we have a problem, most likely the spine is involved and if adjusted, can fix the problem without taking pills or medication. I’m currently pain free and able to participate in my favorite activity – golf, because of Dr. Packer! I would and have recommend Dr. Packer to anyone who may need to see a chiropractor. I have recommended Dr. Packer to those who are unsure of chiropractors, and one of them took me up on the advice – they love him.

More positive outlook on life

My name is Eileen Patricia Littlefield. Please bear with me, as Dr. Packer is in the process of getting my head on straight! I am improving after many years of limited motion, aches and pains and impaired body function. Oh, how I wish I had found Dr. Packer earlier in my life. I was born seventy-nine years ago with forceps which damaged my neck. My family was always admonishing me to “STAND UP STRAIGHT”. I have asthma, allergies, Graves disease, emphysema, cancer and kidney problems.Show More

Dr. Packer has educated me in the function of the nervous system. I now realize that vertebral subluxation has not allowed my nerves to function properly, thereby not allowing my body to heal. When I was twenty-nine I had surgery, and when I came out of the anesthesia I could not use my arms. The doctor said that the table was tilted quickly and my shoulders may be bruised. It would heal. After years of therapy and traction I still had pain and restricted movement in my neck.

At forty a doctor x-rayed me and asked about the accident that had damaged my neck. When the operating room experience was mentioned the subject was dropped. More years passed. Now doctors ordered large doses of ibuprofen and naprosyn. My blood pressure soared. After months of heart and blood pressure medication, the cause was found to be kidney failure due to the NSAIDS. The only thing left was more drugs. I decided I will hurt…no more drugs! They do not cure; they only mask the symptoms and cause further medical problems. I saw Dr. Packer’s ad and called. Under Dr. Packer’s care, I am not taking any medication for pain. I am improving and am now able to drive and walk stairs. After a lifetime of problems, I have finally found the answer. Dr. Packer’s gentle adjustments have improved my mobility and have given me a more positive outlook on life. Life begins for me at seventy-nine. Under this type of care it could begin at birth.

Overall good feeling of health inside and out


I have suffered with low back pain for years and even had surgery 7+ years ago. Nothing really helped. Dr. Packer’s holistic approach to body care through spinal care has made a really significant difference in my back, neck, and overall body health! I am not afraid to, carefully, use my body as I did prior to back pain many years ago, and I have an overall good feeling of health inside and out! Thank you, Dr. Packer and staff, for letting me live normally, and healthy, each day!!

Developed more of a sense of “well being”

I’ve had lower back pain for over 5 years. After treatments, my pain is minimal, even after 3 days straight of shoveling snow. Although I have quite a bit of damage from over the years, I know that there is hope for a normal life. Dr. Packer and the staff treat patients more like family. I have developed more of a sense of “well being”. I am very encouraged for the future. Thank you Packer Chiropractic!!

— Donald Alger, Custodian East Bridgewater, MA –

No more headaches

I was getting migraine headaches a lot. I was taking a lot of different medicines to stop, and it was not working. I also had neck problems so I came to Dr. Packer and I very seldom get the headaches anymore.

— Karen Alger, Inspector, East Bridgewater, MA –

Migraines Gone

I’ve also notice that since I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Packer I haven’t had any migraine headaches. I used to get 1 or 2 a month. I am amazed what chiropractic care can do. I hope to continue this good health. Thank you Dr. Packer

Safe and gentle treatment

I have had Fibromyalgia since 1991. Even though I am on daily morphine and other meds, I was suffering from a new kind of severe pain in my arms and legs. My internist couldn’t help and I was starting to feel desperate. I haven’t been able to work in years and often my whole body ached. When I first came into Dr. Packer’s office I was skeptical that it would help. Over the past 20 years I’ve been to maybe 6 different chiropractors, with no good results. Their approach was usually superficial- a couple of adjustments and no real exam and diagnosis.Show More

I saw immediately results from Dr. Packer’s treatments, after 3 weeks the new pain in my arms and legs had completely disappeared! Moreover, I’ve gotten quite the education here! Dr. Packer explained how several head and neck injuries in my childhood, and a bad car accident contributed to my problems now. Now, after less than 2 months I am beginning to feel happy and comfortable in my body and mind. Thank you Dr. Packer for everything! I look forward to continued safe and gentle treatment!

Do not feel exhausted

A little more than four years ago I began my journey to find out why various parts of my body were giving me so much discomfort and why I was feeling so exhausted all the time. After about 2 years and many doctor and even neurologist visits they decided that I had fibromyalgia. Then I started my journey into the land of drugs. Nothing seemed to help. While reading the paper I saw an advertisement concerning fibromyalgia.Show More

I called the phone number and soon received a packet of information. Intrigued and hopeful I made my first appointment with Dr. Packer. After a month of chiropractic care, I feel so much better! No longer do I wake up with a headache or by the end of the day does my whole body seem to be in pain. I now do not feel exhausted all the time. I can clean my house, go shopping, and all those pains are either gone or just minor aches. Dr. Packer has given me back my life. My biggest question now is why are there so many people suffering from fibromyalgia and they aren’t sent to a chiropractor.

— Karen J, Teacher, Brockton, MA –

No Pain

I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I had muscle spasms, could not sleep, lots of pain in hips, legs, back, neck and shoulders. I had problems walking sometimes for days. After five years they decided it was fibromyalgia, which is soft tissue pain near muscle and bones, chronic fatigue syndrome, low back pain and tender points and IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). I started coming to Dr. Packer for chiropractic treatment. I do not have any pain in my body anymore. I believe the adjustments have helped me tremendously.

Horrible pain is gone

Hi, my name is Audrey. Diagnosed at about 35 with Osteoarthritis and many, many other sicknesses, finally at 47 I was referred to a specialist who diagnosed me as having Fibromyalgia. By the time I found Dr. Packer I was in extreme agony and about ready to just stay in bed and give it all up. Then in the newspaper, my husband found an ad for Dr. Packer and literally saved my life. I’ve been coming now for about 4 months.

Just about all of my horrible pain is gone, my depression is much, much better, my judgment is better, I am more aggressive where I need to be, I am just a new person!! Chiropractic and Dr. Packer are the best things ever to have happen to me for my health and well being and I would just be happy to send anyone to him. Thank you a million!

— Audrey R, Middleboro MA –

Quality of life improved

When I first came to Dr. Packer’s clinic 3 months ago, I regularly relied on 1 of my 3 wheelchairs and constantly on my cane for walking short distances, very slowly and in constant fear of falling- which would occur almost once a week. As long as I was awake I was in constant pain from Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Raynauld’s Syndrome, T.M.J, Peripheral Neuropathy, I.B.S., and a pot-pourri of other “diagnoses” I’d received since 1988, from 8 different doctors: who prescribed over 29 different prescriptions, each of these drugs came with their litany of side effects and over the counter “remedies”

Although I’d tried acupuncture/ acupressure, pool therapy, massage, yoga, meditation and more; I’d avoided Chiropractic treatments due to “fear”. I didn’t think anything else would help. I told Dr. Packer I would be happy with a 5% improvement. I’m beyond ecstatic with a 50% improvement in just 3 months.Show More

The difference is so evident, neighbors and friends I only see occasionally comment on my remarkable improvement! Not only have I stopped using my wheelchairs, but I now only use my cane outside. My “non existent” walking ability grew into my being able to walk further and longer without needing the next day to “recover”. Dr. Packer’s initial evaluation identified 4-5 issues that had NEVER been addressed before! The fact that he’d identified areas that no one in the past 18 years had even considered impressed me a lot along with his thorough and extensive evaluation. The fact that he had specialized in treating people with fibromyalgia, and was resolute that his program could improve my “situation/state” significantly gave me the determination to commit to treatments. Yes, there’s been ups and downs, good and bad days, but slowly, surely, I (and others) saw a transformational improvement that ultimately led me to being able to take a week long vacation with a friend to the Caribbean.

I am so thankful for Dr. Packer and his staff, and his wonderful “customized” chiropractic treatments that have resulted in such a marked improvement in such a short time. I also know that I am extremely fortunate to have begun his treatments before the damage to my spine had the time to deteriorate beyond help. The quality of my life has also been majorly improved, as well as my outlook on life! I had resigned myself to basically sitting at home 90% of the time, with the routine visits to the Doctors, etc, all with the help of a friend driving me there, and me “driving” my wheelchair upon arrival.

“O.K.” So I won’t be running the Boston Marathon ever- I’ve been able to walk for over 1½ hours through an entire Walmart store without falling! That’s winning my personal marathon!

Mobility has improved

For the past four years I’ve suffered severe muscular pain, numbness and spasms in my lower extremities and in my arms to a lesser degree. I had x-rays, MRI, and CT which showed severe narrowing of disc spaces and some herniation. I was referred to a neurosurgeon. His diagnosis was arthritis and sciatica. He said because “of my age” he would not recommend surgery but suggested I take Celebrex and referred me to a pain clinic.

Later that year I had a spine injection but the relief was temporary. My condition worsened and I was losing my mobility, balance and energy. I got a referral for a rheumatologist. He said in addition to arthritis I had fibromyalgia, (a skeletal-muscular disease) and chronic fatigue.Show More

The only relief he could offer was a prescription for a muscle relaxer. He suggested as an alternative, acupuncture or chiropractic care. A few days later I saw an ad in the paper pertaining to fibromyalgia. I called for an appointment and met with Doctor and Mrs. Packer for the initial visit. After an EMG followed by x-rays and a family conference, to explain the function of the spine and nervous system, I started treatment. Now, after five months, my fibromyalgia symptoms are minimal, my mobility has improved and I feel more energetic. I just recently celebrated my 85th birthday. So, regardless of age you can improve your health the natural way through chiropractic care and avoid the harmful side effects of drugs.

Beyond Expectations

It was sometime back when my wife saw an article in the local newspaper about a breakthrough in the treatment of Fibromyalgia using “The Chiropractic Approach”. After many years of suffering from this ailment we decided to send away for the report which was to arrive shortly at our home. After thoroughly reading the report I decided what the heck I’ve got nothing to lose since nothing else that was prescribed seemed to be working. I picked up the phone and called to make an appointment for an evaluation and consultation.Show More

Everything went along fine as I built up confidence in the Packer Chiropractic Fibromyalgia Relief Center approach, that included my wife and eldest son. I showed up dragging myself up the stairs with the use of a cane and lots of pain, for my first treatment. The results didn’t seem to be that great at the beginning but as time went on I began to see improvement from visit to visit. Shortly the results were beyond any expectations. I now find myself getting around with a lot less pain and to the point of not needing to use my cane. My range of motion in doing exercises is improving more and more and with a lot less pain. I still have a ways to go but I’m sure the improvement will continue. If you have Fibromyalgia I would recommend that you pay a visit to Packer Chiropractic Fibromyalgia Relief Center and return to better health. You will be glad you did.

Not grumpy anymore

My name is Theresa. I had tried anything and everything for my fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. My life went right down the toilet. When I first saw Dr. Packer I was in a lot of pain, I had problems standing up; I had pain in my joints. I was so tired I could barely drive the kids to school, when I came home I had to take a nap. My quality of life was really not good at all.Show More

I finally saw Dr. Packer. I started getting better and better and it just made me all the more want to come and keep getting better. I finally had a life. My kids noticed I wasn’t grumpy anymore, I could actually sustain a natural life style with them and do activities that I could never do before. It’s just changed my whole outlook—just having a healthy sight of everything. Natural care is definitely the way to go. I’ve given up all different kinds of drugs and I’m doing all natural now. Chiropractic can help everyone, you have to be a patient. I have my children doing it also and I’ve seen a huge success in them. I just hope you’ll give it a try.

— Theresa G,Attleboro, MA –

Helped me to walk

My problem is my back, my shoulders, my neck; my whole body was always in pain. I used to go to a bone doctor, my primary care doctor and no one told me that my problem was something different than the arthritis they said I had. I went to many different doctors about my back, my neck, my shoulders—all over. They just put needles in my body and gave me pain medicine and they said it’s arthritis—they cannot do anything.Show More

Since I’ve been coming to Dr. Packer I can’t tell you I don’t know how we don’t know about chiropractic, we should know more about chiropractors because this is very important, what Dr. Packer did for me. He helped me to walk, he helped me to breathe, he helped me do all the things I haven’t been able to do. For years I haven’t been in a supermarket because I could not walk around. Last Monday I went to the supermarket. I could walk all around the place. My kids were so surprised to see me moving, moving my body up and down in the supermarket.

I don’t know what would happen if I stopped chiropractic care. I think we should all know more about chiropractors because if a medical doctor cannot help you there is someone out there who can help you. Dr. Packer is a good man and he can help anyone with any kind of symptoms…I never knew I could get back my life. I wish to G-d that everyone could know more about him and I could spread the word that everyone should come and see him because I think he is a very special person to give you back your life. Thank you.

Significant improvement

I have had fibromyalgia for 20 years, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoporosis. I have been to MD’s, neurologists, rheumatologists and all that I got was pills. Since my breast cancer I have really gone down considerably. My immune system was severely affected. Worst of all, walking and bending were my biggest problems.

Since my start with Dr. Packer the improvement is very significant. At this point stair climbing is the most difficult thing for me to do but I’m working on it. I do have a way to go. I wouldn’t consider stopping my chiropractic care. I was referred to Dr. Packer by a friend. I feel for the people who are not aware of the benefits of the chiropractic system of healing. If you know anyone with notable problems such as these please ask them to contact Dr. Packer for an evaluation. I’ll tell you, you will not be sorry.

— Patricia W, Whitman, MA –

I can function now

I have fibromyalgia. I tried to exercise and eat right, basically that wasn’t working, so out of desperation I came to Packer Chiropractic and since I’ve started I feel 99% better. I’m not chronically fatigued as I was before. I can actually function. What I see in the future if I continue care I’ll keep getting better and if I stop I’ll probably have a relapse. I think that people should try chiropractic care because it works.

— Janine R, Brockton, MA –

I play hockey now

The problem that I came to Dr. Packer for was severe heaviness in my arms and legs as well as just an overall feeling of being unhealthy, feeling 55 at the age of 42. I’ve previously been to numerous chiropractors. I started talking to my general physician about all this probably 9 or 10 years ago and I was told I was out of shape in my arms which I found remarkable. I’ve had extensive MRI’s done, I’ve had blood work done, I’ve had nerve conduction tests done, everything has come out normal.Show More

I came about two days before a surgery to take a muscle biopsy out of my leg…thankfully the surgeon decided not to. He decided to interview me first and talk to me about what was going on. He said this was definitely not the thing to do, to take a major piece of my muscle out of my thigh. I felt hopeless. I saw in the newspaper, a quick article about chiropractic care. And I came here and I listened. Of course I was used to trying to get something done yesterday, that’s just the way everyone lives their life these days. It’s taken a while, it didn’t happen quickly but if I look back on the past nine months I’m amazed at what I’ve been able to do.

I feel better, I feel healthier. I still have a bit of heaviness in my arms and in my legs. I don’t know if that’s permanent damage from being compressed for so long or if it will eventually lighten up. But everything has changed in my life because I can do things now. I couldn’t play with my kids before because I was always tired or my neck hurt or my back hurt. It’s been a great experience to come here. It’s definitely life changing.

I play hockey now, which my kids think is hysterical that their mom plays hockey but it’s really changed my life for the better. Again it’s not an overnight thing. It’s really about taking it day to day, not picking up heavy things, being more attentive to yourself as far as what you want to do. I would suggest to anybody who has gone through the litany of tests and the years and years of frustration and having people tell you it’s all in your head, it may be just that you’re out of alignment and it’s a very simple thing to fix and the sooner you fix it the better.

Staff is warm and welcoming

Prior to beginning my chiropractic care I was experiencing severe headaches, neck pain and upper back pain. After the first few weeks of treatment that disappeared. All of the staff is very warm and welcoming.

I can sleep at night

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident on January 13, 2000. I went to see my primary care physician regarding a number of problems that I was having that included neck pain that radiated to my mid back, headaches, and low back pain that was constant and severe. I had previously been a patient of Dr. Packer’s, so I discussed going to a chiropractor with my primary physician. I was instructed by him that I could not go to a chiropractor and that I must go to physical therapy.Show More

I began physical therapy 2x per week and continued with it for about 1 month. At this point I could hardly walk because my low back pain was so severe, and I continued to have headaches, neck and mid back pain. My primary care physician decided that this would be the appropriate time to return to my job as a nurse’s assistant! I knew that I needed to do something, so I called Dr. Packer’s office to make an appointment in spite of the advice from my PCP. I began my chiropractic care on February 22, 2000 and began to notice improvements after my second adjustment. Today is March 27, 2000 and I have no more headaches, I can sleep at night, I can walk, and I am in much less pain. I swear my life on chiropractic!

Extremely pleased

Decades of being afraid to move anything because of back pain, even with the utmost of care, unable to sit or stand in one position for more than a few minutes, unable to walk or run for more than a short distance without pain, afraid to kneel and do any gardening or similar activity, trying everything from heat and ice to muscle relaxants – anti-inflamatories – pain relievers.

Without a doubt, I am pleased with the results from Dr. Packer. I now stand straighter, walk better, can tolerate extended periods of sitting or standing without fidgeting. I am able to move things and kneel to do yard work without fear of an unexpected zing in my back muscles. I am not qualified to explain how it happened in any scientific way, but I can say that I am extremely pleased with the vast improvement that I have experienced. I can only hope that your experience with chiropractic care equals or exceed mine.

Different outlook

I also had migraines; I had all sorts of MRI’s and other tests. Nothing worked, till I came here. I have a different outlook towards certain things. I do not want to be on medicine all my life. I would recommend going to a chiropractor. I should have done it years ago.

Improved Dramatically

For many years before chiropractic care, I was a chronic sufferer of low back pain and migraines. I have improved dramatically. I no longer suffer from migraines and my back pain is gone. I’m healthier and more alert than I was before when I was dealing with the pain.

— Jon L. –

Carpal Tunnel Gone

I came to Packer Chiropractic on a promotional event. I never knew how much pain I was in until it was taken away. After 2-3 months of adjustments I no longer have migraine headaches, carpal tunnel (pain) in my left wrist is gone. Chiropractic takes time but the results are overwhelming. I feel as good as I did when I was a teenager.

Reduction of Headaches

For as long as I can remember I’ve always lived with frequent headaches. Some to the point of becoming nauseous. Bad weeks would be headaches for 3 and 4 days and a bottle of pain reliever to keep me going. Frequency of pain relievers and strength began to increase. I’ve been seeing Dr. Packer on a regular basis. One of the 1st things I noticed was the reduction of headaches to the point were I barley get them. My daughter also suffers from the same problem and while under chiropractic care they rarely occur. My liver thanks you.

Feeling Great

Before I came to Dr. Packer I had migraine headaches for the past 8-9 years. I got them 3-5 times a week, plus minor headaches. Now the headaches are much less, and they are less severe. I am almost headache free. I haven’t felt this good since I can remember. Thanks Dr. Packer.

— Vincent G., Retired, Norwood, MA –

I feel more “alive” than ever

I had severe headaches and was taking between 4 and 8 ibpurophen per day when I first met Dr. Packer. Within one week my headaches subsided and eventually went away. I am the most active ever, my range of flexibility has improved, my headaches are gone, and for the first time in a longgggg time, I feel more “alive” than ever. Thank you Dr. Packer.

I’m riding my bike again after 4½ years

I went for years being in a lot of pain. I had to stop working my second job. I had severe pain; especially in my lower back and neck. I couldn’t sit or stand for long periods of time, let alone walk very far. I couldn’t even bend over to tie my shoes without being in agony.

After my third week with Dr. Packer the results were amazing. I look back now on how I was and can’t believe I waited so long to get help. I am finally out of horrible pain and every area of my life has improved because of it. I can finally move! I am sleeping comfortably through the night and as a result, have much more energy during the day. I have much more physical and mental stamina. Also, I’m riding my bike again after 4½ years. I could go on and on with all the improvements.

Neck and Back Pain Stopped

You would think that only being 18 years old I wouldn’t need to go to a chiropractor. Since going to Dr. Packer the headaches and neck and back pain have completely stopped. I now walk and play sports much easier now. Chiropractic is for people of any age.

— A. O. –

Effective Treatment

I have had back and neck pain for 15 years. I have sought treatment through anti-inflammatory medications, injections, physical therapy, acupuncture, Reiki, massage, and a previous chiropractor. I have gotten the most relief from Dr. Packer’s treatment, because he has helped straighten out my spine, which is the source of the trouble.

Headaches Gone

My 11 year old daughter Ashley was waking up nightly complaining of headaches. She has been treated at “Packer Chiropractic” and no longer wakes up at night or seems to have anymore headaches.

— Karen J., Bus Driver, Brockton, MA –

No more headaches

I have been suffering from terrible headaches for a long time now. I got tired of missing days with my family and missing work. None of the medications were helping. I was so stressed all the time. It seemed like I had a headache every day. Finally I decided to seek help from Dr. Packer. It has made a great difference in my life already. My headaches are less frequent and less severe. I have stopped taking any medicine for headaches.

— Margaret M –

No more medicine

Before I learned about Chiropractic, I took Tylenol every time I had a headache which unfortunately was quite often. The Tylenol would make the pain fade for a little while, but then it would come back … and I would take more Tylenol. The amount of Tylenol I was taking was starting to damage my liver. Now I have been seeing Dr. Packer. I don’t even remember the last time I took a Tylenol and I can get back to the things I need to do.

Improved Quality of Life

I have been receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Packer for about four months now. As a result of the treatments received I have been able to stop taking all medications for my severe headaches and chronic neck pain. It has really helped to improve the quality of my life. I would recommend Dr. Packer to anyone with a spine.

Dr. Packer Educates You!

I’ve been coming to Dr. Packer’s for 3 months now. I have seen significant improvement in my health. With a decrease in headaches, neck pain, lower back…, the biggest achievement is the big decrease in the Ibuprofen consumption. I admire Dr. Packer for his continuous efforts and commitment in educating his patients and his concerns in helping them achieve optimal health. Thank you Dr. Packer and thank your committed staff.

You rule Dr. Packer!

Hi! I’m Kelsey and I’m 10 years old. Before I came to Dr. Packer, I used to have constant headaches. Sometimes they were so bad, I couldn’t do my homework! This would get me angry. Then I came to Dr. Packer. I found out I had headaches because my spine was out of alignment. After a few adjustments, I almost stopped having headaches altogether! I also learned that aspirin and Tylenol don’t really help you. The pain just let’s up for a little while. Now I know I should just kiss Tylenol goodbye! You rule Dr. Packer!

— Kelsey S. –

Feel better educated

I came to Dr. Packer’s office with my husband and 4 children with a wide range of symptoms. Ear infections, chest colds, headaches, back pain, i.b.s., and learning disabilities. I’m very happy to say we have all experienced great improvements in all our problem areas. We’re more educated about prescribed and over the counter medications and visiting Dr. Packer’s office is always a pleasure. I wish all appointments were as professional, efficient, respectful and helpful as mine at Dr. Packers. Thanks everyone!

Dr. Packer is unique & practical

I was rear ended by bus and I came to Packer Chiropractic for treatment. I am pleased with my recovery. I had neck and low back – severe strains. My severe headaches from the accident are gone. All in all, Dr. Packer’s care is unique and practical. Thanks.

Nothing is holding me back now

I have learned that attending chiropractic appointments are the most important thing in my life. Everything has completely changed. A few months back I couldn’t sleep normally. I couldn’t move my right arm above my head. I cried every morning because of the pain. Now I’ve joined a gym. I move with no pain at all. No more migraines. Nothing is holding me back now.

I am going back to college. The list is endless. I couldn’t live my life to the fullest. That’s hard to do when you can’t move properly. I have a wonderful mother to thank. Dr. Packer has also given my mother a new life. Her confidence in him made me so comfortable. I have such trust and respect for Dr. Packer, and I thank him.

I have suffered from a severe migraine for the last 8 years. I went to regular doctors, had MRI’s, cat scans etc. and all I ever received was another prescription Motrin, Naproxen, steroids etc. to mask the pain. Once the pills wore off the pain returned. With nothing to lose but my headaches, I decided to give Dr. Packer and chiropractic a chance. He explained that through chiropractic care, he could treat the pain at its source, which was in my spine. No regular doctor ever diagnosed that.

After my first adjustment I left his office pain & drug free for the first time in 8 years! I was amazed. I now know a healthy body starts with a healthy spine. I’ll continue to see Dr. Packer, not to treat my headache but to maintain a healthy spine. The loss of my headache is just one of the fortunate side effects of chiropractic. Thanks Dr. Packer for showing me the way.

Headaches are no longer

I first became interested in chiropractic treatment when I was informed by my primary physician that I would need surgery on my brain to correct blockage of spinal and brain fluid. This blockage also known as Arnold-Chiari caused me to have headaches. Since being under Doctor Packers care my headaches are no longer.

Excellent Provider

I injured my back while lifting weights at the gym. This was not the first time I had back pain, but it was the most severe. The pain was so severe that I could not perform my duties at work. Unlike my previous back injuries, the pain with this injury was not getting better, but worse. Like most people, I cannot afford to let my back pain keep me from work. To complicate things, I have a physically demanding job where I am at constant risk of further injury.Show More

I am happy to say that since Dr. Packer has been treating me, my back pain has lessened considerably, to the point where I haven’t had a back problem in months. I believe that, had I not gone to Dr. Packer, I would surely have missed time from work and possibly suffered a career-ending injury. In my opinion, conventional medicine does not treat the source of the problem; it treats only the symptoms.

If there was message I could give to anyone considering chiropractic care, it would simply be “Do it”. The choice between living in chronic pain or living pain-free should be easy. Dr. Packer is an excellent provider of a service which offers an effective treatment for back pain and a method for a more complete life.

Healthy Days

At about 10 years old, the doctors wanted to add more medicine to my daughter’s life to control her asthma. I insisted on alternatives, but they had none, just more medicine. My mother had just started chiropractic care with Dr. Packer for vertigo and suggested I bring my young daughter. Within 6 months of bringing her to Dr. Packer she was off all medications, what a relief.Show More

I was now a convinced parent and started to bring my other two children who also benefited from chiropractic care and live healthy lives free from medications and vaccinations. I have seen the ill effects of vaccines and medications. My healthy grandmother was convinced to take the flu shot and within two weeks she had a stroke, and died within the next month.

My children and I do get sick from time to time, but we let our bodies heal themselves, and because we are in adjustment we are never down for long! I have gone for long periods of being in adjustment. I almost made it to one year, but just recently due to a heavy snow storm and shoveling I went out of adjustment. Dr. Packer put me right back in and I am good to go, on my way to better, healthy days!

I believe regular chiropractic care, along with a healthy diet, exercise, and yoga have helped keep me in alignment, but most importantly for many years I have done my spinal exercises and back supports daily. I know some people are concerned about the costs of chiropractic care and healthy foods. But I know that chiropractic care affords me the luxury of going to work vibrant and focused every day, and my children attend school and get honor roll grades all year long! I do not have to spend additional money on doctor’s visits and medications! Being healthy is the best way to be and it is more valuable than anything!
