No More Cane!

I had to use a cane when I first started here and I could hardly walk. I still have some problems, but I am 98% better than the first day I walked in 10 months ago.

F.K., Richmond, VA

Car Accident Success Story! No More Back/Neck Pain.

I came here because I was in a car accident and it injured my back and neck. My back was so tight that I was not able to bend over or lift things without a lot of pain. My neck was sore and also gave me pain in my shoulders. Since receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Pastore I can lift and bend without any pain. I also have no neck or shoulder pain. Even before the accident I suffered from severe migraines, but as I went through treatment the migraines came less often and less often. I’m much better now than when I first came here.

T.B., Chesterfield, VA

Low Back Pain from Auto Accident Success Story!

We, my wife and I, were involved in a car accident in December 2010. We found Dr. Pastore and decided to start treatment. When we first came in I couldn’t sit for very long, and was very limited in my ability to do normal everyday functions because of lower back pain. After several months of treatment I can say that I am 90% to 99% recovered and have resumed almost all of my normal activities. Thank you to the Dr. and his staff.

S.J., Richmond, VA

Auto Accident Success Story!

Came to Dr. Pastore as a result of an auto accident. Was under care and was treated as a P.T. patient prior. Within weeks of starting my treatment program with Dr. Pastore my overall physical health started to improve in several ways.

  1. My core strength improved over time.
  2. My flexibility improved.
  3. I am recovering faster from injuries.
  4. My greatest success is being in communication with my whole body again through the weekly adjustments.

Success Story! No More Pins and Needles in Legs!

I would lose feeling and have pins and needles in my legs if I rode in a vehicle for much more than 1/2 hour. Through decompression this problem is no longer present. I would recommend chiropractic care.

S.M., Amelia, VA

Chronic and Severe Low Back Pain Success Story!

I had chronic and severe lower back pain, which were often debilitating. After multiple failed topical ointments, rubs, massages, and a myriad of other symptom management failures, I presented to Dr. Pastore. After a series of decompression treatments, back manipulations and exercises (and I am not even ½ way through my treatment plan) I can honestly state that I feel markedly better! I pay attention to my care, I sleep on the amazing pillowpedic and I continue to do my exercises. I can’t imagine if I feel good now what will I feel like in weeks to come? I look forward to my office visits and I enjoy my time in the office with his amazing staff.

Like Having a New Neck and Shoulders!

I initially came to Breckenridge Chiropractic because of numbness in the fourth and fifth fingers of my left hand. I had also suffered from neck and shoulder pain for many years, but had attributed this to tension and had dealt with it through exercise.

As I was driving home after my first session with Dr. Pastore, I looked over my left shoulder to check my blind spot before making a left turn. I was shocked to discover I could turn my head several degrees further without pain. I had been suffering from cervical subluxations for years and had no idea chiropractic treatment could make such a difference so quickly!

Throughout the course of spinal decompression therapy, continued chiropractic care, and exercises designed to support my spine, I steadily improved. Today, I enjoy increased flexibility, and the numbness and pain are gone. It’s like having a new neck and shoulders! Thanks, Dr. Pastore and Breckenridge Chiropractic staff.

C.D., Colonial Heights, VA

Neck Pain Success Story!

I came to Breckenridge Chiropractic because I could not turn my head far enough to look back when trying to back up my car. I also had a “cracking” noise in my neck when I did turn my head.

My primary care doctor told me I would just have to “live with it.” I decided I wasn’t born like this and I did not have to “live with it.” That is when I called Breckenridge Chiropractic and made an appointment. Sure enough- I was right! Breckenridge Chiropractic fixed my neck and other things I didn’t even know were broken!

G.D., McKenney, VA

Success with Back Pain and Hands!

I’ve been coming here for about three years. Dr. Pastore has helped my back pain immensely. He works on my hands when they go to sleep and it is very helpful. I fell on my hand recently and he has helped me a lot with that. I have been coming for preventive care but if anything happens I come more often. I have been using my cervical pillow and it is comfortable and also helped. He has worked on every part of my body. I like the slideshow that is on the TV’s and if I have any questions Dr. Pastore gives me a lot of information about it. Thanks to Dr. Pastore for everything he has done for me!

E.A., Chester, VA

Shooting Pain from Arm to Shoulder Resolved!

I initially visited Dr. Pastore because I had a shooting pain from my shoulder down my arm. Not only did this problem go away, but other non-related issues went away as well. My health has changed for the better in so many ways since coming to Breckenridge Chiropractic, I couldn’t imagine my life without it.

S.B., Fort Lee, VA

Knee and Leg Pain Success Story!

I was unable to walk without help sometimes and had terrible pains in my knees and legs. After several weeks, I no longer had any problems walking and the pain went away.

R.W., Chester, VA

Another Satisfied Patient!

When I first started coming to Dr. Pastore’s office I had lower back pain. I have been coming to Dr. Pastore for about 13 years. The pain comes and goes, but the adjustments help get me back on track. I have been to numerous chiropractors, and I like the style in which Dr. Pastore does his adjustments. That’s why I keep coming back. Thank you to Dr. Pastore for how you’ve helped me over these years.

R.B., Chesterfield, VA

Preventive Patient Testimonial

When I first started visiting Dr. Pastore I had leg and lower back pain. I’ve been coming here since 2007. It has eliminated a lot of my pain and stress on my back. I am a preventative patient. I will continue preventative care because I like keeping everything aligned and functioning properly, and it makes life more liveable. So thanks to the staff and thanks to Dr. Pastore for how he’s helped me over these 4 years.

D.M., Chester, VA

Middle and Low Back Success Story!

When I first started visiting Dr. Pastore I had middle and lower back pain. Sitting or standing for long periods of time was painful. I began seeing Dr. Pastore in June and he educated me about what was going on in my spine. There has been about 80% improvement in the pain since I started with chiropractic treatment. I plan on continuing with chiropractic care with Dr. Pastore.

M.R., Chester, VA

Lower Back Pain Success Story!

I originally injured my lower back in 1985 and have had chronic pain ever since. I came in one day when I had been experiencing a lot of pain and spasms for the last month. After about a month of treatments, the pain and spasms became less frequent. It used to take till afternoon before I was able to stand up straight. Now I can stand straight when I get up out of bed in the morning.

E.W., Chester, VA

"No More NSAID's" Success Story!

Knee Injury Success Story! No More Crutches!

My family was involved in a serious car accident in December 2010. When we first walked into Dr. Pastore’s office, I was on crutches with a knee injury and was in severe pain head to toe. I couldn’t sit or stand for any extended period of time without pain. I had severe headaches every day and I had severe pain in my knee. It is 8 months later and I feel about 90% better. I no longer limp, and am able to sit and stand for any time with minimal discomfort. My headaches have decreased and lessened in severity. Dr. Pastore was also able to help with my sinus infection and ear infections. Even my overall health is better. Thank you!

M.J., Richmond, VA

Extreme Back Pain Success Story!

After 1 week of extreme back pain I came to see Dr. Pastore. He thoroughly explained what was happening to me (anatomically) and how I could benefit from his care. I agreed to an eight week program. Around week 4 I began to feel relief from the pain. Week 6 I could tie my own shoes again! The exercises were great as I could feel my core regaining strength. I have recommended Dr. P to others and will continue to do so. Overall I’ve had an amazing experience.

Neck and Back Pain Success Story!

I am very pleased with my treatment from Dr. Pastore. When I first arrived at the facility, I was unable to walk normally and I was in severe pain.

After a couple of weeks of treatment, I was able to walk normally again and a great deal of the back pain had subsided.

Over my past few months of treatment I have experienced marked improvement in both my back and neck.

I would highly recommend Dr. Pastore to anyone looking to improve their health and well being.

D.H., Chester, VA

Choosing Preventive Chiropractic Care a Huge Success!

I have been receiving chiropractic treatments on and off since I was in my teens. Whenever the pains of aggressive sporting activities arose I would have chiropractic adjustments just to alleviate the pain. Once I moved to this area from out of state, I came to see Dr. Mat. It was not until I met with Dr. Mat and the staff here at Breckenridge Chiropractic that I was told that chiropractic was not a cure for the pain but a plan for overall wellness. Since being on a maintenance program, I have not experienced the usual pains and stiffness. And in the event the occasional flair-up does occur, relief through chiropractic comes much quicker than the times I was not receiving regular adjustments.

D.B., Chester, VA

Neck and Back Pain Success Story!

I came to Dr. Pastore on Valentine’s Day of this year with so many aches and pains in my neck and back. As of today, I feel totally relieved of all pains. It feels great to be able to get out of the bed in the morning without complaining.

I can honestly say that Dr. Pastore has truly given me my life back. I have done things this year that I haven’t done in years (drive across a bridge, fishing from a pier) as well as other things that I feared.

Not only is Dr. Pastore a sweetheart, so is his staff.

I am so happy I came to this office.

B.A., Richmond, VA

Lower Back Pain Success Story!

When I first came in 3 months ago, I had horrible lower back pain that kept me from working. After several weeks of treatment and exercises, the pain went away. I’m continuing treatment to keep my spine and back in good health.

Thanks, Dr. Mat and staff.

D.S., Chester, VA

Leg and Toe Pain Success Story!

When I arrived at Dr. Pastore’s chiropractic treatment center, I was in pain. The pain in my left lower leg and toe was severe and I was miserable. That very week I could feel the improvement. Since that day I have continued coming to see Dr. Pastore on a regular basis.

I sincerely appreciate your help, Dr. Pastore.

Low Back Pain Success Story!

Many years ago I came to see Dr. Mat for low back pain ~ like not my back is achy pain but OMG I can’t walk upright pain. I am a 46 year old with a physically demanding job for the last 30 years. Dr. Mat not only fixed me up but he educated me about my body! As a new patient you might feel worse at first but stick with it. The rewards are awesome ~ PAIN FREE LIVING! Do not stop after you feel good. Follow his plan. I tried that too and it doesn’t work. I have been scheduled twice for surgery by the medical field from injury at work. Both times, Dr. Mat was able to help my body heal up. Medical doctors wanted to spend money ~ my money and prescription drugs ~ cut me open for something that could be cured through chiropractic. Don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t let him take out my liver but he sure knows his stuff about what most affects people in their lives physically!

T.J., Richmond, VA

Stress Relief Chiropractic Success Story!

After 2 ½ years of taking care of a sick husband I found it hard to take care of myself. My back and legs hurt me constantly. I did not realize I was so stressed out. I felt like every day was a hassle.

My visits to Dr. Mat and his pleasant staff put me back into good spirits and a good outlook on living.

M.S., Chester, VA

Auto Accident/Work-Related Injury Success Story!

After an automobile accident in 1999, several work-related injuries and years of playing sports, I had reached the point of no return. I had seen chiropractors all around the country and was never satisfied with my progress… then I found Dr. Mat. I noticed improvement within a couple weeks, was placed into physical therapy and followed his advice for diet and chiropractic care. I can honestly say now, without hesitation or reservation, that Dr. Mat’s care has been the reason for my improvement. I can play hard with my kids again and not worry about throwing my back out the next day; I can run and weight train again, all without next day injury or setbacks. My recovery time in between workouts and physical activities has been greatly reduced. I could not be any more content with my decision to go under the care of Dr. Mat.

Thanks to your awesome staff, too!

M.C., Chester, VA

Low Back, Shoulders and Neck Success Story!

I had pain in my low back, shoulders and neck when I first came in. After 12 weeks my back is doing extremely well and neck and shoulders are doing great. I would recommend chiopractic care to anyone.

L.C., Chester, VA

Hip Pain Success Story!

(In a letter to Dr. Pastore) ~ When I first came into your office I was desperate- hardly able to walk because of the pain in my hips and in desperate need of help.  I knew a nerve must be pinched in my back- but I definitely did not want anyone to do surgery of any kind.

Yes, it has now been 5 months since I walked into your office.  I also am able to walk every morning without pain for 1.5 miles and considering extending it to 2.  I feel very fortunate that I found you (Dr. Pastore) and you not only confirmed a pinched nerve, but did what was necessary to alleviate it.  I particularly appreciate the fact that you had me learn how to do the exercises correctly to help keep me from reverting back to the original condition.

Not only thank you, but also thank the staff who have been very patient and kind to me during this period- particularly when I was trying to get the exercises down- right.  With this kind of assistance and professionalism I feel confident that I can stay healthy and mostly out of pain.

N.W., Chester, VA

Hip Pain Success Story!

B.L., Chester, VA

Headache Chiropractic Success Story!

Shoulder Pain and Numbness in Arm Success Story!

I was having pain in my left shoulder and numbness in my left arm.  After a few weeks of decompression and adjustments, the feeling is back and I have almost no pain.  I was also experiencing extreme weakness in my arm. I had trouble lifting a jug of milk and now I am doing fine.

I'm happy I did not have the surgery!!

J.L., Petersburg, VA

Sciatica/Herniated Disc Success Story!

I came to Breckenridge Chiropractic after suffering for more than a week with what I thought was sciatica. Dr. P and his staff were able to diagnose my condition as a herniated disc and began spinal decompression treatments immediately. After several weeks, the pain is almost gone and I am able to walk almost normally.

The staff is wonderful, kind and courteous.  I would recommend Breckenridge Chiropractic to anyone in pain.

The only thing needed is a Breckenridge Chiropractic office in the West End of Richmond.

T.B., Chester, VA

Sciatica Success Story!

The sciatic pain I was experiencing when I first started treatment is no longer evident and it is much easier to walk, sit and stand.

One of the most helpful things I've appreciated with Dr. Pastore's treatment is the deep muscle massage.  The pain I've had in my neck and back has improved considerably.  Working those tight muscles has helped my overall comfort level and I anticipate further improvements as I continue care.

M.P., Chester, VA

Middle and Upper Back Pain Success Story!

Before starting chiropractic treatment, I was experiencing a lot of pain in my middle and upper back along with my shoulders.  By the end of my drive home every night, the pain would be so bad I would almost be in tears.  After my first two weeks of treatment, the pain was almost completely gone.  I now go home and look forward to doing things with my friends instead of laying around in pain.  Once I started the spinal stabilization exercises, what pain I had left was basically gone and I noticed an increase in my core strength.  Dr. Pastore has really helped me and I am looking forward to maintaining my now pain free back.  Thanks, Dr. P!

M.C., Richmond, VA

Patient would rather have a good back than win the lottery!

When I first came to see Dr. Pastore, I was in so much pain.  My neck and back hurt constantly.  I was a little uneasy about the whole process but after consultation with the doctor, I was at ease. Not only was the doctor pleasant and informative, so was his staff.

I have been coming to the office for about 3 months now and boy do I feel better.  I look forward to coming and to the treatment.  Just yesterday I told Dr. Pastore if I had the choice between a million dollar Lotto winning ticket and a good back, I would take the good back and Dr. Pastore.

B.A., Richmond, VA

Neck Pain Success Story!

I started out with pain in neck, as of today I have no pain.

M.B., Chester, VA

A Headache Success Story!

The care received has helped reduce the occurance and pain from headaches caused by muscle tension in my neck and upper back.  The treatment has eliminated my need to use muscle relaxants several times a month.

A.G., Chester, VA

A Wonderful Chiropractic Success Story!

When I first came to Breckenridge Chiropractic I was in a lot of pain, every day, all day.  I did this because the pain was so bad for 2 years that I was not sure where it was coming from, my back or leg or where.  Because no matter what I did I could not get relief.  It did not matter how I sat or lay down, there was always some pain.  When he explained what was happening to my back and if I did the treatment plan, my pain level would decrease.  So I started my treatment.  At first I could not see a difference, but when I did what he told me to, follow instructions, my pain level started to decrease.  Then I started the exercises and I could feel some pain but they helped.  Now I have gone through my treatment plan and I am almost pain free and this is something that is so amazing that I feel really good almost every day.  I have no pain, but can feel the results and they feel good!!

R.G., Richmond, VA

Scoliosis Patient Finds Success with Chiropractic

"I had been to physical therapists at the VA Hospital and received very little compassion or concern related to my back pain.  I have a mild form of scholiosis that until my mid-thirties had been manageable.  Dr. Pastore and I sat down about two months ago and discussed a treatment plan.  He is genuine and cares about my health.  I have already noticed great results.   I would recommend this practice to anyone."

J.S., Chester, VA

A Great Neck Recovery with Spinal Decompression!

After starting the cervical decompression sessions I have noticed a great deal of pain relief in my neck.  I feel as if I have better flexibility in my neck with little or no pain.  I would also recommend the purchase of the cervical pillow to sleep on which has made a huge difference in my sleep pattern.  I would highly recommend cervical decompression to anyone suffering from neck pain.

S.H., Chester, VA

Spinal Decompression Success Story!

I came to the chiropractor after a car accident during the Christmas Holiday in 2010.  Dr. Pastore, while reviewing my x-rays, found that I had a degenerative disk in my lower back.  He recommended that I go through decompression.  After 20 sessions on the decompression machine I have noticed a total increase in my flexibility and the pain is more bearable.  I truly thank him and would recommend chiropractic care to anyone suffering lower back pain.

M.H., Chester, VA

Another Spinal Decompression Success Story!

Prior to treatment with Dr. Pastore my pain was so severe that I could not even bend over to put my socks on without assistance.

After completion of four weeks of spinal decompression, I am now able to move and bend without pain.

E.H., Colonial Heights, VA

Another Chiropractic Success Story!

When I first came here I was suffering from a back and neck injury due to a car accident.  Now I am back to wearing heels and back in the gym working out.  The treatment I have received has improved my back and neck to normal.  Also, I suffer from painful migraines a few times a week.  My migraines have nearly faded away.  I now go weeks without having an issue with them.  I'd like to thank Dr. Pastore for everything he has done to help me.
