I am a Crossfit Master’s athlete in South Carolina. I took 29th in 2015 in the world. As I was training for 2016, I tore my hamstring and bicep. I met Dr. Aaron at Sherman College of Chiropractic. When I tell you he put me back together...he put me back together. This young man is phenomenal and I highly recommend him, especially if you participate in Crossfit.

About 6 months ago, I started noticing pain in my neck. I had just started graduate school, and I was sitting in class and studying 8-10 hours a day. On top of sitting all day, I was doing Crossfit 4-5 times per week. The pain began to irritate me to the point where it was hindering my fitness training, as well as making it uncomfortable to sit and complete my schoolwork. I knew that I wanted to be a successful student and athlete, so I reached out to Dr. Aaron. He has a great understanding of an athlete’s body and knew exactly how to treat me for my needs. He was committed to helping relieve my pain, but also spent time educating me on proper mechanics and proper exercises to help me with becoming a better Crossfit athlete. I’m so happy that I have been pain free since starting treatment with Dr. Aaron.

As a 22 year old runner, I thought low back pain was the last thing that was going to take me down. What started as minor sciatic pain, turned into debilitating pain that affected the way I functioned in just about all of my daily activities. After a visit to the orthopedist where I had an MRI, their only solution to the problem was through the use of excessive pain killers, and they basically told me nothing could be done. That’s when I sought out Dr. Aaron. First of all, I was thrilled at how much Dr. Aaron cared about my running performance and secondly, how much time he spent with me over the course of 5 months. During that time, Dr. Aaron developed a plan for me using his skills and athletic background that completely changed the way I use my muscles and even changed the way I think about using those muscles, with no pain killers involved. Now, I can move and stretch in ways that I couldn’t have before without having excruciating pain. I can now continually build my strength, train with confidence, and live free of back pain thanks to Dr. Aaron.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have had the chance to be treated by Dr. Aaron Palmieri. He really showed he cared about me and the pain I was experiencing. Not only did he take the time to get to the root causes of my discomfort, but his treatment methods prevented my nerves from being pinched and healed my neck and back. It made me feel like a new person and relieved a lot of the long term pain that I had. I have been blessed to have him as my doctor.You know when you have been treated by the best, and Dr. Aaron is truly one of the best.
