If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.

"After a high impact car accident my body was going through lots of pain and stress. Thanks to the steps taken by Dr. Wachs now I see a big difference to my pain labels and how my body moves. Before the treatment I was not able to do any of my daily tasks like play with my kids or even sleep. I also lost days of work. Thanks to the consistent plan of care by Dr. Wachs and staff I can now enjoy anything life brings my way."

For about a year I had swelling and a lump behind my neck that would swell at times, causing severe headaches and dizziness. Went to my doctor's office and ER several times, and they never knew why it was happening. The ER even tried to train it once but never found any liquid. First time I came and got adjusted it went away. I forgot to mention it to Dr. Wachs.

I don't get headaches anymore and I have full-motion of my neck. I am so thankful he helped me, and so happy I decided to come see him. I came for sciatic pain and he help me with much more than he realized. So, today at this visit I thanked him for being such an awesome Dr. and taking his time on me.

On August 1, 2017 I experienced a motor vehicle accident that change my life dramatically in various ways. When I arrived to Dr. Wachs' office with pain in my back, or as he called it trauma after an incident. Adjustments and advice for home treatment has helped and impacted my life drastically. I'm able to return to my daily life activities. His courteous staff, always greeted me with a smile. They always made time and adjusted to my schedule as needed. I want to thank everyone involved in helping me get my life back after so many difficult moments post accident. I encourage everyone to follow all necessary advice from Dr. Wachs, because he helped get me back on track, and he will assist you to do the same. Thank you to everyone involved, and I will continue to follow-up.

After my car accident I came to Dr. Wachs as I was referred by my lawyer, best decision ever. Since day one they took care of me and my pregnant girlfriend; they made us feel like family. It wasn't just a daily visit it was more like going over friends house and getting adjusted. Now me and my girlfriend, with our two-month old boy have finished the therapy. We're glad to say Dr. Wachs ans his staff took really good care of us. Dr. Wachs has known my son since he was in his mom's womb, up until his first two months of life. They did the most for us and we're glad we were able to get such amazing help.

After my accident I was referred to Dr. Wachs. My experience was great, staff was always friendly and Dr. Wachs. was even more friendly! He explained everything well, and made me feel better. My pain is gone and my posture got better too. Posture was hard to keep straight for me before I came in, and now it's no problem. Best experience at his office. No doubt he will make you feel better.

This is my second time coming to Dr. Wachs. I was involved in two accidents in less than a year. Dr. Wachs and his staff did a great job the first time getting me back to 100%. So, when my second accident happened there was no question to whom I was going to get my back adjusted. Coming to see Dr. Wachs is not just coming to see a doctor, but more like visiting an extended family. I recommend Dr Wachs to all my friends and family.

Therapist for children with special needs
I was recommended to Doctor Wachs on my primary doctor. I was in a car accident (rear – ended) and that same week felt stiffness/soreness in my upper back. I felt pain from standing for over 15 minutes, as well as sitting for too long. I was nervous that the soreness would not go away as it was affecting me at work. I would say about two weeks after getting adjusted, I began to notice a difference. I was not in as much pain when sitting or standing. I will continue getting adjusted as it has helped and improved my health after the accident. Great Service! Doctor Wachs takes his time to explain or answer any questions and his assistants are always very friendly.

Ashlee J.
Cashier and Caregiver
I began coming to Wachs Chiropractic after my car accident in March 2017. I had a lot of trauma after I was hit in the accident. I was very shaken up and had a lot of pain from my neck to all over my back. When I arrived at my first visit, I was greeted by great staff who after coming to my appointments for months became friends and people that made me feel very comfortable every time I was in the office. I really appreciated that because at the time I was going through a rough patch and Joanna and Daisy were always there to talk if I needed to. Doctor Wachs is a great Dr. who I can't thank you enough for helping me in dealing with my pain day in and day out, and being understanding while educating me on how to keep myself and body healthy. I am 25 years old and working at my cashier and care-giving job really puts a strain on my back and Doctor Wachs always made me feel comfortable and I would always leave feeling 100% better; and giving me the opportunity to continue to feel better about myself and keep being happy through my daily routines. If you feel better, you live better, so thank you Doctor Wachs Chiropractic. I will always cherish the help and laughs every day, and for all my back and joint pain and problems you guys are always #1.
 Love always, Ashlee.

After getting hit from the back in my car, I thought I would end up in stress and pain for a long time. Dr. Wachs helped with a speedy recovery and made it easy to deal with the lawyer and insurance.

I would like first to thank everyone at Dr. Wachs office, Chula Vista. From all the ladies that always had a smile on their face and a professional attitude to the great hands and technique of yes, the doctor himself that made me feel that he really cares about his patients, their health and wellbeing. Yes, I would recommend him because I was scared at first of seeing a chiropractor and skeptical. But I am now convinced that a very experienced doctor and staff make a difference. I know because I am not the best patient but will give credit where credit is due. Thank you and God bless you.

A. Castillo 

On March 17, 1999 I got hurt on my job. I hurt my neck. At that time I was prescribed pain medicine and muscle relaxer. Because of those medicines I felt over medicated and still in alot of pain felt my left side of my neck, shoulder, arm and my hands went numb very difficult to move. So I went on my own to see a chiropractor and that Dr. (I won’t mention her name) adjusted my neck and my spine, shoulder blade area where I felt “stuck”. It help but after years of going to her office she couldn’t adjust me. So I was sent to Dr. Wachs Chiropractic office in chula vista. On my 1st visit I told him what was going on with my neck and back by my shoulder blades and the pain I’ve been having since my injury. Dr. Wachs then treated me with a tens unit therapy and hot pads on my spine. When he adjusted me “WOW” in all those years of seeing my 1st chiropractor!!! I’ve never ever had been adjusted in the way he did. I didn’t know my neck and back could POP in so many places. He’s very good at what he does! And he’s a very funny Dr. make me feel good and very comfortable. His staff is very nice they are all very polite and very helpful. Since I’ve been going to my appointments I feel he helped me alot. I’m feeling better but still have some “flareups” I can’t thank Dr. Wachs enough for helping and treating my condition. To all his staff too thank you all!! I will recommend to all that need to be treated for pain and to be adjusted by Dr. Wachs. He’s the best!

O. Hinojosa

Attending Dr. Wachs Chiropractic care was by far one of the decision I have made after suffering a close death experience. I had injured my cervical spine which not only did it affect me Physically but mentally as well. I was convinced that I wouldn’t be able to participate in sports like I used to prior to my accident. After seeing several Doctors, I found no relief still, until I came to see Drs. Wachs and after a couple of adjustments I was starting to feel this relief which I was starting to feel this relief which I hadn’t felt in a long time. Thank you Dr. Wachs.

I was in an accident and I was in a lot of pain. Fortunately Dr. Wachs helped me. I had whiplash from the car accident. My back was all out of alignment, like crooked and my hands were numb. I was in more pain than I ever knew but thank god for Dr. Wachs he has great hands and put my back, back in place. I was afraid of taking addictive pain drugs but Dr. Wachs has a new safe pain medication, no pills. A gel he rubs on your back and no pain! I looked like hunchback when I came in here but now I am walking tall head up, standing tall, walking pain free. Getting my life back. I couldn’t even bend over and touch my toes, had no flexibility now I can move and pain free, and back is returning to normal again thanks Dr. Wachs and staff. To the staff, ladies thank to you all too.

Prior to coming to Dr. Wachs office Chiropractic Health Center, I would feel like my way of walking wasn’t resolved, which would cause a huge discomfort for me. I also had lots of knots in my back which would long periods of walking or sitting painful and uncomfortable. After a car accident, I went and got treatment for the injuries from the accident and noticed that I had recovered for more than just the pain from the accident in just 2 months. I can feel a difference in my walk and np longer feel pain in my back when I stand. For long periods of time at work. Thank you, Dr. Wachs and God bless. I would recommend this to any teens young or young adults as way of treatment in substation of medication.

I had a car accident last year in November that affected my neck, back, shoulders, and lower back. After the accident, it was hard for me perform my regular work schedule and personal life activity. After coming to see Dr. Wachs, my health improved so much, that know am very well. No more pain in my back, I can work long hours with no pain problems. Most importantly, I’m not taking any pain medications for the car accident injuries since those have and are now gone after going through the treatment. It was a great experience to walk with Dr. Wachs and his staff during the healing time. They were very friendly, flexible, and professional. They worked with my schedule and made me feel very comfortable. I will defiantly come back if I need more service and I highly recommend them, to other people. Thank you!

I was involved in a car accident six months ago and treated in the ER for whiplash. The ER doctor recommended that I see a Chiropractor. I was a bit skeptical about seeing a Chiropractor as I had never been. the pain in my neck and back was excruciating and I could hardly walk without support and had trouble sleeping. After my first visit with Dr. Wachs I left his office feeling less pain and able to walk properly. I recevied six months of treatment and can honestly say my back/neck pain is no longer a problem for me.  Dr. Wachs is a wonderful doctor and I always look forward to my appointments, not only for treatment but to visit him and his lovely staff!!

Thanks so much!!

Dear Dr. Wachs' I just want to say thank you from day one until the end of my treatment. When i first started therapy I was in all kinds of pain, had trouble sleeping and constantly tense. Within just one week of being seen three times per week I seen a difference in my pain level, sleeping and relaxed structure. I had been in a car accident and today three months later I feel like myself again I will continue to come in for therapy every now and then just because normal wear and tear from work gets me pretty knotted up but I understand its nice to get adjusted every now and again. I recommend your office to many of my friends and coworkers and anyone else who may have any type of accident. Thank you to the staff they were very polite and welcoming Christina, Jennifer, and Daisy were very understanding of my schedule and I sincerely want to say thank you and I give you all 5 stars!! Thank you Patient, S.Dudley

On my first visit I knew I was in good hands at Dr. Wachs' chiropractic...My condition was an extreme discomfort (neck/shoulders esp). With very uncomfortable movement. I am very pleased with my treatment, and the staff (very nice). I appreciate all of you at Dr. Wachs' everyone of the ladies were totally proactive in assistance in every aspect from scheduling to as friendly and professional all the time. My testimonial... Dr. Wachs' approach that fixed my pains was definitely that "Midas Touch", he got hands to heal.

            Since my car accident back in October, I decided to come in the following month to get treated since my neck and back were in pain. The first visit I came in I got evaluated and the next visits I got adjusted, it felt great and the more visits I came in for the better my back and neck started feeling better. When the accident first occured I had a lot of issues carrying anything or even sleeping on my side and when I relaxed as well. Today after about three or four months I can say I feel much better. I can sleep on my side without any pain and I can aslo lift things and exercise with no problem. I highly recommend getting seen by Dr. Wachs after any injury or accident. The staff is also very nice and have a very felxible schedule for appointments.

I started coming here after my motorcycle accident that resulted in great pain in my back and my legs. The
doctor started a therapy plan structured for every other day to help start me on a schedule. My appointments were made at three when they opened and they were always on time. The staff was always very professional in attending to my needs and Daisy was always smiling. The doctor always took his time explaining my health and in understanding each step to my healing process. Thank you for being so kind.

I am a military physician. I was involved in a car accident May 2014. My back, neck, and shoulder kept having pain and resulted in my lack of mobility, even after several rounds of physical therapy. I am a previous patient of Dr.Wachs, he is excellent in his manner and attention to detail. Being a wounded warrior and having rescued
soldiers, his care has definitely increased my quality of life. I am always recommending Dr. Wachs to friends and family. Staff is very attentive and always greets you with a smile. Thank you.

I was involved in a car accident where I was rear ended unexpectedly. I was not able to brace myself before the impact and suffered injuries to my head, neck, shoulder, and feet. Luckily, I fell in good hands when I was directed to Dr.Wachs office for my treatment and recovery. Dr.Wachs office counts with professional staff who always treat you in a friendly manner. Throughout the weeks following my treatment, I was able to notice the pain in all of my affected areas disappear. I strongly believe that through the treatment received here at doctor Wachs'office, I have healed  from my injuries and my range of motion has improved from before the  accident. Special thanks to Christina, Daisy and  Dr.Wachs.

When I visited the doctor I had been experiencing immense pain. However, once I was treated with a heating pad I began to feel better. Dr.Wachs adjusted my neck, head and back which helped me move more freely and breath
easier at night. As well as my leg, that had been in pain for over two years, had been alleviated. I cannot not believe how much I benefited from just one visit. Thank you.
