I injured my lower back a few months ago, and was in extreme pain. I was having difficulty with even simple actions like getting up out of a chair, walking, getting out of bed, etc. I went to see Dr. Tarvin, and he did a fantastic job assessing me, and figuring out what the problem was. He then started a regimen of treatments in his office, as well as exercises for me to do on my own, and after less than two weeks of work on his part, I felt like a new man! I am very grateful to Dr. Tarvin! Bottom line; he ROCKS! He got me back to feeling normal far sooner than I otherwise would have been able to accomplish, and I can't say thank-you enough.

May 2010 was getting our house in order, spring cleaning, looking so forward to the summer ahead! During all the cleaning, moving furniture around, and by myself moved our full fridge across the kitchen as well as our full freezer across the room, BIG MISTAKE! Quality of life hit the bottom! Due to neck and back pain, burning in both arms, and hands, could not use my hands, could not sleep, could not do anything, was depressed thinking of looking at my summer now unable to enjoy.

Went to my MD's office, was prescribed muscle relaxers, and was told not much could be done...really depressed, I was in constant pain and misery! In late June decided to try a Chiropractor, did not know what to think, but felt I had nothing to lose. Made an appointment, was impressed by the professional and knowledge, and how through Dr. Tarvin was, he said there was hope for me, I was a bit skeptical, but by the end of July...I had my life back!!!! Yay...my quality of life had improved! Dr. Tarvin is amazing....he really cares about his patients, he is a down to earth, honest, and his years of experience really are obvious! He has helped our son with posture and minor back problems, my husband, and my 82 y/o mom, a retired RN. Dr. Tarvin also promotes a healthy lifestyle, just a way of life...I have learned so much from him. Can't imagine not going to Dr. Tarvin for the acute as well as help with maintaining the healthy lifestyle that I desire. I want the whole city to go!!!

I have been a cheerleader for the last 11 years of my life and in cheerleading I do a lot of lifting. When I was in 9th grade I went in for a spinal exam and they told me I had 5 degrees of scoliosis and that one of my shoulders was higher then other one. They told me that is wasn't a big deal and that i didn't need to do anything about it. I have always got migraines and my back hurt but i made excuses for it like "oh my period must be coming." or "its just cause I am stressed." My aunt told me that i should go see a Chiropractor and so i decided to do it just to see what would happen. I really had nothing to lose. ever since i started going to Dr. Tarvin i haven't had any migraines or back pains. He is so nice and if i ever need anything he fits me right in! Thank you so much!

I had tweaked my lower back and needed help immediately. I called and they were able to squeeze me in at the end of the day. Dr. Tarvin listened to my concerns and made sure he made the correct adjustments. I felt so much better that I now am scheduled to come regularly! Thanks Back Essentials Chiropractic!

  • Everything is an advantage!

Spent time to get to know my health issues. Didn't blow me off. He fixed my problem and then gave me more advice on how to improve my life style. I not only left his office feeling better but i left with advice that has changed my life for the better. I have better posture and I can walk better. I even feel better at work. Trust me you won't be disappointed! Thank you Dr. Tarvin!
