Testimonials

No more pain pills
Before visiting Dr. Karl Smith, I would have constant lower back pain and I would have to take Tylenol on a daily basis because of my headaches. Now, after a few weeks of visits I am headache free. No more pills for me and my back is feeling great. I highly recommend Dr. Smith if you are looking for a better quality of life.

Headaches are less frequent
I originally visited the office as a result of a Fair coupon. I'd been experiencing degrading posture and extreme muscle tension resulting in frequent tension headaches. Today, headaches are infrequent (less than one a week) and range of motion has greatly improved.

Less Intense Pain
I am continuing to have longer periods without pain in my lower back and when I do have pain it is less intense.

~ Heather D.


Treatments are working for me
My pain has lessened a lot since I have been getting treatments. I am not as sore or stiff as before. Sometimes I still get head and neck pains, but it's getting better. I know that these treatments are working for me.

Less lower back pain
Having had chiropractic adjustments I have noticed an improvement in my posture, less back pain and stiffness. I can actually bend over now to put on my shoes without my lower back hurting now.

Wonderful Experience
Dr. Karl and his staff are wonderful! I have never had a chiropractic adjustment prior to seeing Dr. Karl and he did a great job explaining the process! I am on the road to a full recovery!

From Barely Walking to Riding a Bike
I had just driven 2,400 miles straight from Atlanta to Spokane for work, and I mean "straight". When I arrived all seemed well, but after about two weeks, my lower back and pain shooting down my leg to my big toe with burning and constant ache was so bad that I could not step on it, so walking was more of limping and hopping. Asked my sister if there were and Chiropractors in the area and she said yes, there is Dr. Karl Smith, he likes rhinos, and he is really good. So I limped into him and he started me with an evaluation. And yes, there are little rhino pictures and figures to be seen. As that evaluation started he was seriously concerned that I had a back problem that might need surgery and beyond his care, but he said we will see after he had finished his evaluation. In general I guess I looked bad. So after the tests for motion and pain he took X-rays and then came back to say, "I think I can help you, but you don't have much time or you're going to need surgery". Based on how my body was wracked with pain going way over the normal twinges you ignore, I knew he was right. From the first adjustment I could tell he had real skill unlike any other Chiropractor out there. So I kept on with everything he said to do, out of fear that this was my last shot at a normal life, there is no getting back to normal after surgery, so this had to work. With each adjustment I got better and soon the pain was reduced and I was walking again and I even added bike riding. It is always nice to go into his office. His staff are the best, they are very friendly, professional, and get things done. These people together with Dr. Karl have helped change my life in the way that I was hoping things would go. I am very grateful. To say, Dr. Karl is a good Chiropractor is to say Tiger Woods is a good Golfer, there is just real quality in the care he provides.

Nationally Ranked Athlete Speaks
Upon coming to University Chiropractic I was plagued with ongoing pain from a winter time fall that made every day activities such as work, caring for my children, and household duties nearly impossible. Prior to the accident I had been a professional athlete, in the sport of Scottish Highland Games, and world heavy events. My sport was my passion. I thought those days were long gone. Dr. Karl Smith brought me back to a healthy place in life. I have been able to not only regain my abilities to complete daily tasks, but also have returned to my sport in full force gaining my national ranking from 8th in the world to 3rd and rising.

Thanks University Chiropractic.

Bad Back Pain
I've only been coming here for a little over a month and it had changed my days. I used to get really bad back pain and now I can get through the day with almost no pain. Dr. Smith has made my life so much better.

Thank you.

~ Jeffrey P.


Look What I Can Do Now
Since receiving treatments I have been able to walk better and have had considerably less pain. While receiving treatment, I was also doing a lot of wood cutting and framing of a shed. This type of work would have been very difficult had I not been receiving treatments.

~ Larry R.


My Life is Back
When I first came here I was in a lot of pain, I could sleep - during the day I had bad headaches and I could hold my head up and I always held my head down and when I tried to turn my head it shot pain through my neck.

Now I'm sleeping better and my headaches are gone. I would like to thank the whole staff for helping and getting my day to day life back.

~ Vanessa G.


I Can Run Without Limping...
When I first came in I could not even stand up straight. I had recurring headaches and face and jaw pain. It hurt to walk, to sit and to lay down. I was in a constant state of pain.

Now I am doing much better and feel that I am on the road to a complete recovery. I now can sit, stand and sleep with a lot more ease. I would say that my pain level has gone from an 8 to a 3.
I can now run without limping!

Thanks so much, I appreciate your kindness, compassion and your professionalism.

Tightness in Neck and Shoulder
When I came in I knew I was overdue for chiropractic adjustments. Was experiencing a lot of tightness in neck and shoulders. My lower back was weak and feeling not right. My right and left knees were hurting and sometimes giving out.

Now, I still have tightness in my neck, but not like before. Also, my jaw is getting better since it was adjusted and I know what exercises to do. Headaches are minimal - my knees are better and my lower back seems stronger.

~ Janice W.


Continual Leg Pain
Continual pain down my left leg is gone. I appreciate the thoroughness of the Doctors.

~ Scott W.


Agonizing Headaches
I am feeling better and better - I have never really had severe headaches. When I would get sick, yeah, but never 24/7 like I have had with this injury. The first month was just agony. I have finally started having great relief. The combination of massage with adjustments is the only way I could have recovered (almost fully).

~ Shawn R.


Headaches and Back Pain
I came in hurting. My back hurt and it gave me headaches every time I looked down. But I came to see Dr. Smith and slowly my back and neck are feeling much better. I can now look down and write this with much less pain.

~ Jeanette A.


Vision Troubles
Came in due to a car accident, vision in my left eye and lower back were giving me a lot of troubles. With the massages and adjustments
my vision is getting better as well as the pain has gotten better.

~ Debi B.

Long Term Issues
Had Problems with thoracic and cervical. Couldn’t sit in driver’s seat for very long without pain. Had long term issues in left shoulder from motorcycle accident 20+ years ago. Have had great relief from pain and much more freedom of movement. Thanks!

~ James H.


Lower Back and Right Leg Pain
I first came in to see Dr. Karl Smith I had pain in my lower back and right leg. Now I’m doing much better with the work that they have done for me.

~ Kevin O.


Sharp Pains Up and Down My Spine
I started coming in due to the sharp pains up and down my spine. I thought this was caused from middle back and hips. Since my neck has been getting adjusted, I no longer have the intense painful tingling in my neck, shoulders, and upper back which I guess I ignored until now. I feel a lot better over all now.

~ Millie L.


Look Forward to Adjustments
By coming to see Dr. Karl, I made sure my body was working like it should. I came to all my scheduled visits, and looked forward to an adjustment of my spine, always was rewarded with information on how the spine works with the brain and proof that we can be quite healthy with a good structure.

~ Joseph A.


Pain Every Morning till Night
Before coming to see Dr. Karl I was in pain every morning till night. I found visiting Dr. Karl has brought me no pain in morning from my toes to my neck and I have been pain free for about 90% of a week. Dr. Karl has made my knowledge for adjustments very easy to understand. Thank you so much for doing a good job.

~ Sharon S.


Back to doing things I Love
Since Seeing Dr. Smith and Dr.Colby I’ve been able to move better and get back in to doing all the things that I have loved doing and couldn’t because of my back.

~ Gloria M.


I am most impressed with the increase in the range f movement in my left hip. It is definitely loosening up and I can now put a shoe on and tie the laces which I was unable to do up until I started treatment here. I feel my neck is much better. Overall I feel I’m on my way back. Without the help I’ve had here I could have Faced the need for hip surgery. Thanks and God Bless!

~ Joy L.


Pain Free for the first time in 3 Years
At the end of February 09, after at least three years of constant hip pain / discomfort, I agreed to visit Karl Smith. My husband has been a patient of his for years and felt like he could help. He’d also noticed that my hips were out of alignment when I addressed the ball when we were playing golf.

An evaluation proved his suspicion correct. I was out of alignment. I began a rigorous regimen of adjustments and after approximately three weeks I moved one morning and realized I had moved totally pain free for the first time in 3 years! WOW! I’m looking forward to my body adjusting to the corrections so I can be on more of a maintenance plan.

~ Lori R.


Neck Shoulder and Central Back
Started with dull to sharp pain in neck, shoulder and central back area. All areas much better after treatment

~ Rod P.


Back and Neck
My back is probably 50 – 75% better. My neck is a lot better. The little jerks to the right have decreased a lot. That’s a wonderful blessing. I’ve had that problem including tenseness (neck) when I lie down for 3 ½ years. So it’s really helpful to have relief there.

~ Sharon K.


Constant Migraine Headaches
Before I started seeing Dr. Smith I had constant migraines and muscle spasms. Every morning my muscles and hips would be so sore I could barely bend over. If I worked for more that 3 hours my sciatic nerve would act up and my hips would hurt so bad I could barely stand. After just 2 weeks of treatment I didn’t muscle relaxers or pain killers anymore! I didn’t even realize how much pain I was in every moment of every day. The relief was a God-send and I haven’t had a single migraine or tension headache! Thank you Dr. Smith, I have so much more energy now for my children and my husband says I’m not nearly as grumpy as I used to be!

~ Rashonda J.


Could Barely Turn Over in Bed

Since I have begun with the massage and adjustments, there has been a very noticed improvement. At first I could barely turn over in bed, now that turning and all other movements are “normal.” I know there is something real about the care given. I have been improved over a month, if that. I have gotten much better.

~ Joseph A.


Car Accident
Dr. Karl and the team at University Chiropractic have been fantastic. After a car accident in January that was not my fault, Karl took the time to evaluate everything, not just mask the pain and send me home. A am a very impatient and busy person and Karl and the team knew exactly how to tailor my care.
