" Four years before beginning treatment at Tonal Spine, I was in a nearly fatal accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury and two fractured vertebrae that were fused with titanium. Those four years were full of daily struggle to function through the chronic pain and PTSD that resulted from the experience. My struggle became more desperate as I saw my only option for treatment as impairing and/or addictive medications and often questioned the value of my life when all I could imagine was a future full of suffering. I was unable to work more than part-time and had difficulty taking care of myself which only made me further question the validity of my future and my identity. I had essentially reduced the expectations for my life to nothing but pain when a coworker became a life-saving connection to Tonal Spine. Despite feeling apprehensive about the idea due to uncertainty regarding whether or not they would work with me considering my spinal fusion and general skepticism about chiropractic care, I attended a speaking event they hosted. What I learned gave me hope and when I attended my first two sessions I felt like I had been handed a life-raft. Through Network Care and SRI practices introduced to me during treatment, I have been able to re-imagine my future entirely. Within a year, I am now working full-time and experiencing daily progress toward physical and emotional healing. This work has affected my life in every aspect, from significantly reducing chronic pain to giving me tools to enhance my relationships with self and others. When I felt helpless and hopeless, Tonal Spine became a sanctuary. I have experienced healing that allows me to live a more full and vibrant life without chemical pain management. In less than a year of treatment, I have overcome more obstacles than I had managed in the previous four years of attempting to help myself. I can't speak highly enough about the quality of care as well as the intuitive and intelligent treatment that is available at Tonal Spine. "

" Dr. Aitken is patient and caring! The work we have been doing helps me to manage my chronic autoimmune condition. I have experienced improvements in my pain level but more importantly the work has helped me to deal with the emotional stresses of living with this condition. I highly recommend him to anyone with physical pain or help in dealing with the stress and tensions of everyday life."

" The nervous system work that we are doing is steadily improving my health. Within a few weeks I started to feel many changes in my body that I am sure would not have occurred without this process. I highly recommend to anyone wanting to feel and look better day by day!"

" Dr. Dave Aitkin and Emerald at the Tonal Spine are caring, compassionate and gentle healers. My first experience with Dr. Dave was seeing the difference he made with my husband’s on going problems with disabling neck and back pain. That was four months ago and almost immediately he had no need for pain medication, his quality of life was amazingly better and he now has the skills to deal situations that might have led to pain in the past. I decided to visit Dr. Dave myself and see if he could help with residual issues from an automobile accident and an illness that led to disfigurement on the right side of my face. Things are so much improved on both counts. My neck vertebrae have moved back into alignment and my facial distortions are rapidly improving, so much so that I have been regaining movement in facial muscles that I thought were never going to improve and I have regained symmetry in my face. Quite happily I am getting my smile back."

"Started seeing Dr. Dave for neck and leg pain. When that subsided he had me continue so my body could learn how to not store tension and to release the patterns in my body that cause pain. Glad I stuck with it because the best and unexpected result was a less mulled mind and of course I don’t experience pain that is stuck and chronic. I started yoga about 8 years ago thinking it would help reduce my pain and stiffness. It helped a little but after Dr Dave’s entrainments, I am much more flexible and way less stiff."

" The Tonal Spine was my introduction to chiropractic care and I am thankful for such a delightful and rewarding experience. I have been seeing Dr. Dave for almost two years now and he has guided me through some significant transitions with the utmost compassion and support. This man loves what he does and it is transmitted to those that he treats. I always leave the office in a better state than when I arrived and Dr. Dave gives me tools and guidance that are enduring and invaluable. I hold Tonal Spine in high regard and would recommend to anyone who is ready to take charge and embrace full empowerment. Let this place be your guide!"

"Dr. Dave and Emerald are Extraordinary people with huge hearts! Their technique is beyond anything I have experienced. My lady friend drives an Hour and half one way every week to receive their care because they are simply rock stars!"

"My first experience with a chiropractor was Dr. Dave. I had been experiencing lower back pain for some time and finally decided to give a chiropractor a try. Dr. Dave took the time to understand exactly what I was feeling and where. The result was very successful. I believe my success was a result of Dr. Dave taking the time to understand precisely what was needed. This was no 'cookie cutter' treatment."

After trying many other treatments for my sciatic nerve pain, with no success, I started to see a chiropractor. I found Dr. Dave and was thankful that I did. Not only did he relieve my sciatica but helped my neck and shoulder pain. He not only treats you as an individual, but also teaches you about your condition and what you can do to help yourself.

"I have getting treated by Dr. Dave for a couple of years now—I started seeing him when he was working the clinic at Life University. I originally went because I work on my feet and was having terrible back pain and numbness. After Dr. Dave cleared me of my back pain, we discussed moving towards total body health. I am now on monthly maintenance and have had a huge improvement in my anxiety!! Amazing how the body works!! I highly recommend Dr. Dave and have him adjusting my son now too!"

“Getting entrained (adjusted)  by Dr. Dave has really helped me on so many levels. The light touch approach really has allowed my body to unwind itself in a natural and intelligent way. Dr. Dave is the best Chiropractor! I’ve never been a fan of harsh adjustments. Receiving Network care has really allowed my body to integrate the changes more efficiently. I’ve struggled with digestion and anxiety issues over the years and since I’ve been getting entrained (adjusted) I have noticed that those issues are way less frequent and almost nonexistent at this point. I also had a really bad fall a couple of years ago where I had landed on my head which resulted in really bad headaches for about 6 months. When I went in to see Dr. Dave he was able to correct that. It’s been a year and a half and I haven’t had a headache since. I am so grateful that I found Dr. Dave and this revolutionary technique.”
