“I had seen countless chiropractors, and then two years ago, I discovered Dr. Cherok who is quite simply “the best.” She has helped me tremendously with pain management.” – Gael Whyte Read Gael's success story...
Thank goodness I discovered chiropractic three months after my injury, since traditional medical doctors couldn’t seem to help much. After years of appointments, neurologists, physical therapists, rheumatologists, traction, pain clinics, massage therapists, and endless pain medication, I was diagnosed with severe fibromyalgia and arthritis.
I had seen countless chiropractors, and then two years ago I discovered Dr. Cherok, who is quite simply the best. She has helped me tremendously with pain management. I know you can’t cure fibromyalgia or arthritis but Dr. Cherok helps me live with it. Constant pain is very difficult when there is no cure, but over the years I have found chiropractic to be of great help. I have been under chiropractic care for 34 years now for pain management and to keep me moving as well as possible. I am loyal to Dr. Cherok and pray that she will never stop helping those of us in pain. She is a born healer, and I appreciate her efforts to help me.
Your very grateful patient,
“Much to my suprise, Dr. Cherok’s treatment not only helps with pain, but it also helps my allergies.” – Peter N, Belmont CA Read Peter's success story...
I have had serious, chronic pain in my lower back and neck. The pain caused me to miss work, it limited my activities, it sapped my energy, and it made it hard for me to concentrate.
Consequently, for fifteen years, to control the pain, I took various non-steroid anti-inflammatory (NSAID) drugs every day. When one stopped working or started upsetting my stomach, I switched to another. The list of drugs includes aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, Indocin, Voltarin, sulfasalazine, Daypro, Vioxx, and Celebrex.
I have moderate-to-severe arthritis in my spine and several old post-traumatic fractures in my lower back, including a grade-2 spondyloysthesis. Unfortunately, the rheumatologists I saw (at least four of them) paid no attention whatsoever to those problems in their diagnoses. Dr. Cherok immediately identified these conditions to be the cause of my problems.
Much to my surprise, Dr. Cherok’s treatment not only helps with the pain, but it also helps my allergies. I have had bad allergies since I was a child: red, itchy eyes, runny nose, and sneezing and have needed to take medication daily in order to be comfortable. Since I began seeing Dr. Cherok, the symptoms have much improved. Now only rarely do I use nose spray, eye drops, or take antihistamines.
As a result of Dr. Cherok’s treatment and advice (and my own efforts in following her advice), I now have much less back pain and allergy discomfort than I have ever had since my problems started. Furthermore, my energy and concentration have returned, and I have been able to stop taking those NSAID drugs. Now I don’t have to risk stomach ulcers or damage to my kidneys or liver. This is something I had dreamed of but never actually hoped for. Thank you, Dr. Cherok!

“There’s no doubt in my mind that Activator chiropractic has made a real and vital difference, not only in my spinal health, but also in my ongoing struggle with chronic illness.” – Esther Le Sieur Read Esther's success story...
After my first Activator treatment, I honestly didn’t think the little Activator tool could have really done much, but boy was I wrong! It is gentle but extremely effective. There’s no doubt in my mind that Activator chiropractic has made a real and vital difference, not only in my spinal health, but also in my ongoing struggle with chronic illness.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Cherok for many years, and I know I am getting the best treatment available. She is extremely skilled, with many years of experience. She constantly updates her skills through ongoing continuing education, so her patients are treated with the most up-to-date Activator techniques. She is concerned for her patients’ well-being and is dedicated to helping them heal. Additionally, she understands the special issues those of us with CFS/FM have, and incorporates that understanding into her treatment protocols. I also appreciate the fact that she runs her practice very efficiently, and is very reliable.
I highly recommend Dr. Cherok to anyone who is seeking excellent chiropractic care, whether for an injury, or an acute or chronic condition.

“Within a month, I began to feel a substantial difference. All the symptoms I had experienced slowly disappeared.” – April B. Read April's success story...
Last year, she advised me to try a natural hormone replacement therapy. We did a simple saliva test (which was sent to a lab) to decide if my hormones and adrenal gland were imbalanced. The results of the test indicated hormones imbalanced and adrendal gland at a point of severe exhaustion. The next step was to stabilize my hormones and adrenal gland. Dr. Cherok recommended I start on a dietary supplement taken orally called DHEA and Pregnenolone. Within a month, I began to feel a substantial difference. Al the symptoms I had experienced slowly disappeared. My body began to stabilize and I felt my energy pick-up immediately. Today, I feel extremely healthy and youthful. I am grateful for er professional knowledge of not only chiropractic skills but also her expertise education and wisdom of homeopathic healing.

“The ‘pain in the neck’ that I have tried to live with for many years was eliminated shortly after receiving her treatment.” – E.G. Read E.G.'s success story...
Though the occasional back aches that resulted were not always that bad, it was the stiff neck that was the most permanent discomfort. But what was my most surprising ailment was the dizziness I might suddenly have with certain body movements.
Through a friend of mine I was referred to Dr. Cherok and I have now been receiving her treatment regularly for a couple of years. It is amazing to me how she has kept my body well tuned. When I have a discomfort or feel a knot somewhere, she knows just where to go to correct it.
The “pain in the neck” that I have tried to live with for many years was eliminated shortly after receiving her treatment. The dizziness is gone too. Her treatment, which included my doin a daily exercise, has worked and now members of my family are also benefiting from her expertise.

“After seeing Dr. Cherok for over a year now, my aches and pains are almost completely gone.” – Stacey McDonald Read Stacey's success story...
After seeing my husband go through years of low back spasms and full treatment with chiropractic care, I decided to try it as well. After seeing Dr. Cherok for over a year now, my aches and pains are almost completely gone. What is amazing to me is that as my neck began to get corrected, the lower back pain and shoulder pain began to go away as well. I’m even more amazed that my digestive system and nervous system seem to be greatly improved as well. Chiropractic care has taught me how injuries can set off a chain reaction of aches and pains and chiropractic is really the only type of treatment that can fix the problems and not just cover them up.

“I feel chiropractic care is a very logical approach to better health because it addresses the whole body…” – R.G. Read R.G.'s success story...
My physician had prescribed 10mg Singulair which did nothing and then he prescribed an antibiotic and that too had no results.
With Dr. Cherok’s adjustments and treatments however, vitamins, herbs, netti pot and exercise, it stopped! That was about a year ago and I have not had a cough like that since!
I feel chiropractic care is a very logical approach to better health because it addresses the whole body and I am encouraging family and friends to seek Dr. Cherok’s expertise.
