“I started coming to see Dr. Luke because I had some soreness in my neck, causing a loss of function in my right hand. Since coming to see Dr. Luke, I feel more freedom in movement along with more awareness of my muscles and skeletal framework. I have noticed improvement in my everyday routine, walking, and running. My sinuses have also been clearer and I have had less snoring.”

“I was experiencing sharp, pinching pain which caused limited use of my left arm. Since seeing Dr. Luke, I have had less arm pain and I can breathe better. I am also handling my stress a lot easier. I have more energy and am getting restful sleep!”
Wilbert J River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
“Since coming to see Dr. Luke, I am less tight and have more energy during my workouts. Overall, I have more self-awareness of what I eat and how my body responds to different things. Dr. Luke gives great service. It’s a family-friendly environment and you get straight forward answers”

“Since becoming a patient at River City Chiropractic, I have paid greater attention to my diet and lifestyle. I have more energy and I am sleeping better. My digestion is starting to improve. Adjustments have become a part of my healthy routine and can be an amazing addition for anyone trying to live a healthier lifestyle.”

“I was having lower back pain and had tried physical therapy, which worked originally but the symptoms reoccurred. I reduced my physical activity and took some over-the-counter pain relievers, but that also was ineffective. Since seeing Dr. Luke, I have had reduced pain, with increased mobility and flexibility, and I sleep better at night!”
Karen k River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
“Upon my initial meeting with Dr. Luke, I realized that my heartburn, vertigo, and regular migraines were not normal or healthy. I began coming to see Dr. Luke two times a week with a focus on my neck and on the parts of my back linked to digestion. I immediately felt the effects of the adjustments and I am proud to say I have been migraine-free for a year.”

Before seeing Dr. Luke, I was in a lot of pain throughout my whole body. My joints ached, my shoulders hurt and my hip was hurting so badly that I was limping. I could hardly get out of bed in the morning! I was also taking a lot of Ibuprofen, which was not even helping. I went to an orthopedic surgeon and he gave me some exercises to do and told me to take Motrin. I was not seeing results and I was absolutely miserable. Thanks to Dr. Luke, my shoulders no longer ache and my joints don't hurt anymore. I am able to get out of bed in the morning with no pain and I feel so much better! I can walk without limping. I am so much happier in general. I have a much better quality of life. I sleep better and get more rest. My appetite has returned. I'm standing up much straighter now too.
Chiropractic care has returned me to my previous, outgoing, cheerful personality.
I feel so much better and I can get in and out of the car without pain.
I've been able to return to doing more fun things in my life. I like walking outside and working in the garden. I am attending my son's high school football games without being worried about climbing up in the bleachers. I feel that my overall performance has improved at work and at home.
I am more comfortable in my own skin and I have a more positive outlook in general.

Before I found Dr. Luke, I was suffering from severe lower back pain and shoulder pain. It felt like I had a pinched nerve. The pain would shoot from the middle of my back to my right shoulder. I would just deal with the pain whenever it occurred.Thanks to Dr. Luke, I have more energy. Overall, I feel better and experience less stress. I have less pain in my shoulder.
I really think the staff is great at River City Chiropractic! You learn a lot from the new patient exams, progress reports, and adjustments. Dr. Luke taught me to focus on overall wellness, not just getting my back better.
Lora B River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I started seeing Dr. Luke due to chronic pain in my lower and upper back, and especially in my neck. I was concerned that my body was becoming hypersensitive and creating permanent pain pathways and that I needed to break this route. Dr. Luke said I had one of the most severe cases of inflammation in my neck that he has seen.
I did physical therapy, acupuncture, massage, and stretching when I first noticed that my neck was stiff. Physical therapy did help, but I was much younger.
My neck is so vastly improved I can scarcely believe it. I no longer come home and heat up the neck wrap in the microwave every night. I can turn my head much better, which is important as I am an appraiser and drive in unfamiliar places. My upper back is no longer in constant pain, and my lower back also hurts less. My mood is also much better. I am happier because I don't hurt all the time.
Catherine B River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I came to River City Chiropractic to find relief from the pain in my back and neck, along with numbness in my hands and feet. I had tried taking medications to manage the pain, but they didn't work.
After seeing Dr. Luke for 6 weeks, I no longer have neck or back pain and I don't need the pain medications anymore. My moods have dramatically improved and I sleep better at night.
Thanks to Dr. Luke, I'm more productive at work and at home. My relationships with other people have improved because I'm no longer distracted by pain and worry. I can concentrate on the things I want and need to do in life.
Betsy J River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I was having severe pain, which was making it hard to walk.
Since seeing Dr. Luke, I am pain free!
I am full of energy and a lot happier. Chiropractic has improved my quality of life by giving me the energy to do more things; and the more things I get to do, the happier I am.
I am lifting weights and able to exercise again. My energy is back!! Yay! I would highly recommend anyone to his office.

I started seeing Dr. Luke when I noticed a "clicking" sound in my neck when I turned my head. I wanted to make sure there was nothing seriously wrong and to eliminate the pain.
After my first visit, I realized he could help me with so much more than just the "pain in my neck". Since seeing Dr. Luke, I no longer have the annoying clicking sound in my neck. I have increased energy, improved sleep, a better attitude and an increase in my overall quality of life!Dr. Luke cares about his patients and will teach you how to stop subluxations from happening in the future! Chiropractic is the best way to take an active approach to your health!
Elaine A River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
Thank goodness for Dr Luke! A couple of months ago, I woke up and was so dizzy that I could hardly walk down the stairs. As I got moving, it was a little better but any quick movement started the dizziness again. My family doctor could not be seen immediately, but I had an appointment with Dr. Luke who quickly assessed the situation and recommended an adrenal protocol using Standard Process supplements.
Adrenal exhaustion takes years of prolonged stress to set in. Once active, it takes six months to a year to bring adrenals back to more normal levels (symptoms are varied and dizziness is just one possible symptom).Happily, within a day or two, I was no longer dizzy. After several months of taking the supplements and following Dr. Luke's low stress living advice, my energy levels are mostly restored and I feel better than I have in several years. I had not realized how dangerous prolonged stress could be for my health. This experience has made me realize that taking care of my health needs to be my first priority!

I have a pretty heavy fitness schedule, so it wasn't until I hurt myself badly enough that I could no longer workout anymore that I decided to address my chronic shoulder and hip issues. I had tried physical therapy for my shoulder and it hadn't helped at all. I had grown accustomed to the pain in my hip and accepted it as part of my lifestyle.
I do yoga and always thought that keeping up with stretching and flexibility would help, but although it helped in other ways it wasn't helping my shoulder and hip problem.
Dr. Luke has helped me so much. Chiropractic is miraculous! I'm no longer simply tolerating the issues, but addressing them. It is an empowering feeling and a great relief! It is liberating to see that I am achieving my fitness goals without pain! I can run on hard surfaces without significant tightness and soreness in my hip. I can also drive longer distances which always use to trigger my issues. I have noticed an increase in energy, improved sleeping habits, better digestion and an increase in my overall quality of life! I would highly recommend anyone to see Dr. Luke! He focuses on total health with a holistic approach!
Beverly C River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I started seeing Dr. Luke because when I was turning my neck it was making a clicking sound and was painful at times. I was also under a TON of stress. I had tried another chiropractic office, but was not seeing any changes.
Dr. Luke's adjustments along with his stretching recommendations have decreased the clicking sound in my neck and reduced the tension. I am more relaxed and have improved my posture.
Dr. Luke focuses on the overall functioning of your body. I have become more aware of my body and look forward to working and improving on other aspects of my heath!
Thanks Dr. Luke!
Lauren was one of the first patients to use our new Heart Rate Variability testing. HRV is a measure of naturally occurring irregularity in the heart rate. Nearly a quarter-century of clinical research has shown that when HRV levels are high, a person experiences low levels of stress and greater resiliency. When HRV levels are low, this is an indication of greater stress and lower resiliency.
Lauren River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
After trying everything from physical therapy, several medications, steroid injections and two surgeries, I began to think I would live the rest of my life with chronic back pain.
Since coming to see Dr. Luke, I am off all of the medication and don't notice their absence. Not only do I have a better attitude and increased energy, I am also sleeping better, am happier and I just feel healthier!
Since I am functioning better, I am able to focus on other important parts of my life. I've noticed improvement in my workouts with improved endurance.
My husband noticed the positive changes in me and has since started coming to see Dr. Luke himself! I am excited to continue on my journey here at River City Chiropractic by focusing on improving my posture and eating habits.
Thanks Dr. Luke!

Baby Lincoln has been getting adjusted since he was only a few days old.
His whole family comes to River City Chiropractic because they know that chiropractic care can help with so much more than just "aches and pains".
Wellness chiropractic focuses on getting to the underlying cause of the symptoms and correcting them, rather than covering them with dangerous drugs.
Baby Lincoln was having trouble sleeping and digesting. Since coming to see Dr. Luke about once a week, he has been able to sleep better and has had improved digestion, according to his mother.
If an infant is subluxated at birth, that child's perception of the world is distorted and their ability to respond to the world is compromised. Every infant should be checked for subluxations as soon as possible after birth.
As a chiropractor, I would much rather examine and adjust every newborn than to have to deal with a lifetime of health problems.- Dr. Luke
Lincoln W River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
When I came to see Dr. Luke, I was in the worst pain of my life. I thought I had pulled something when I was out with friends bowling. I quickly learned though that the damage was from underlying health problems.
I'm a very active person. I love to run, weight lift, and play sports. In the past, whenever I was in pain, I would just stretch or take a pain reliever. This was only masking the symptoms though, not getting to the underlying cause.
I have now been seeing Dr. Luke for over three weeks. Today I am back running and preparing for my first marathon. I love that I am running more efficiently and with more balance. Without Dr. Luke's care, I am certain that I would have had to stop running.
I am also dealing with my seasonal allergies this year without drugs because of my chiropractic care. I also feel like I am carrying less stress in my shoulders!
It has been a true blessing to find a doctor that cares about my overall health in a natural way! Thank you Dr. Luke!
Juelissa G River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I was having severe allergy problems and a friend of mine invited me to attend Dr. Luke's "Dinner with the Doc" workshop. It was a very informative class. It taught me how the nervous system controls and heals your body and how chiropractic can help with all kinds of health problems, not just relief from pain.
I had tried many different pills for many years and nothing helped. I stopped taking the medication because of the side effects and just suffered with the allergies.
Since coming to see Dr. Luke, I do no suffer as much. I am breathing better, with less drainage, have decreased watery eyes and I am sleeping better. I now feel like my allergies are no longer disrupting my life!
Tamala G River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I came to Dr. Luke feeling constantly tired and drained of energy. I used to rely on pain killers, but they didn't work much at all. I also spent a lot of time lying around when I wasn't working.Since coming to see Dr. Luke, I feel invigorated. I stand taller. I have more energy and better focus. The back pain that was associated with my symptoms is so much better. My digestion has vastly improved. I can help my patients better working as a nurse. I am in better overall health. I've even started walking 2 miles 2 to 3 times a week!My family says they have noticed such a positive change, and that is what is the most important to me.

In May of 2010, I injured myself and was told I needed a new hip. I was not sure about a hip replacement and I really wanted to talk to someone who cared about what I wanted, which was to avoid surgery.
I met Dr. Luke at the Healthy Lifestyle Expo and signed up to come in for an evaluation.
I can now walk without my cane and move easier. I have eliminated 15 prescription drugs and do not have migraine headaches anymore. I have lost 10 pounds in one month. My wife saw how my life was changing and decided to also start care with Dr. Luke.
My wife and I live in Williamsburg and it is well worth the trip to see Dr. Luke. It feels great to invest in being well again. I see a new way of living and it is great knowing that Dr. Luke and his staff care!
Tom & Debbie River City Chiropractic Patients[fa icon="quote-right"]
My wife had been asking me to come see Dr. Luke for over a year. Although I had seen a change in her overall health, I was still skeptical.
In December of last year, our family came to River City Chiropractic to visit Santa and drop off our donation to the food bank. It was then that my wife convinced me to schedule a check up.
I saw dramatic results right away. It was like being freed from jail. I feel like a kid again. My posture has improved. I am sleeping better and have much more energy. Not to mention how great this is for my golf game!
When you feel great, life is great!
David M River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I came to Dr. Luke immobile and in pain. Now I know this was my body's way of telling me that there was an underlying cause and we needed to get to the bottom of it.
Since coming to Dr. Luke, I have noticed decreased pain and a better attitude. My posture and quality of life have improved. I can now work more productively because I have increased concentration.
I would tell people that Dr. Luke and his staff are nice, friendly people working in every way to help you achieve total benefit.
I am now able to do what I love, including spending time as the Urbanna Oyster Festival's Mr. Oyster.
Paul G River City Chiropractic Patient[fa icon="quote-right"]
I've been coming to Dr. Luke for over a year now. I had severe forward head posture, which was causing some neck and back pain.
Although getting out of pain was my initial reasons for coming to Dr. Luke, I learned the importance of maintaining wellness. This is a lifetime commitment of staying healthy.
I love horseback riding and am able to enjoy it more with the increased energy I have had since maintaining my wellness appointments.

I came to River City Chiropractic after a scary event in October when I wound up in the emergency room for a heart attack scare. I had been having heart palpitations for months and had seen several cardiologists, who were unable to diagnose a root cause for the palpitations. When my left arm started aching and going numb, I went straight to the ER. Thankfully, I was not having a heart attack but I took the event as a sign to start getting serious about my overall wellness.
Dr. Luke and the entire team at River City Chiropractic are great to work with. My first round of testing and diagnostics revealed that the pain and numbness in my left arm was likely due to an impinged nerve, as a result of a bulging disk from bad posture and alignment. After a few weeks of adjustments, stretching and exercises, I no longer have pain or numbness in my left arm.
The heart palpitations took a bit longer to diagnose. However, Dr. Luke got to the bottom of it. After just a couple weeks, he began adjusting the pyloric valve in my digestive system and I have been free of palpitation since. To be free of repeated and constant heart palpitations is an amazing relief and has greatly reduced my stress level.
I look forward to my continued treatment and continuing to improve my overall health under the care of River City Chiropractic.

Seeley came into the world the best way any mother would want their child to come into the world: a perfect, 3-hour, natural labor with no complications.
Within a week, Seeley became ill. After five weeks, she was not improving. Over the years, I have helped a lot of kids and infants get well and stay well. I never thought that the sickest infant I would ever see would be my own child. Seeley Rose had a severe allergic reaction to protein that turned into her not being able to accept and tolerate protein in any form. I had to customize a home-made formula that her body could tolerate. I know that without my pediatric chiropractic training and nutritional expertise, my daughter would have spent the first three months of her life in the hospital. She would have been put on a feeding tube and been diagnosed with "failure to thrive," going to every specialist a hospital could offer.
But it didn't turn out that way. With her getting adjusted throughout the week and customizing a formula that her body could handle, she began to get well again. This is all too common. There are so many infants out there going through the same thing. Luckily though, Seeley had a father who understood the importance of nutrition and a healthy nervous system. Please, if you know any infant suffering forward them our information and get them checked.
