I had never had a chiropractor before seeing him. I am suffering from extremely poor posture and neck pain due to the way I was sitting in the office all day. He educated me as to what was happening using X-Rays and other material, laid out a plan for me which is working great. Dr. Dieter is an awesome guy, always helpful, highly recommended!!!"
