“I first went to basics First after a surgeon told me he did not have the skill to operate on my back. I could not walk up a flight of stairs without the rail supporting me and the pain to walk even a block was getting worse. After 3 months of the outstanding professionals helping me I can live my life almost pain free. I am back enjoying working in the yard, walking the dog and am riding my motorcycle for many pleasant hours at a time.  Strongly recommend anyone with a back problem to visit Basics First. After just the first few weeks you will be amazed as I was.  (7/18/2017)”

Thank you Dr. Paul and Dr. Toplansky, may God bless you both and your staff abundantly with good health and happiness. With love, J-Ann. (9/23/2017)”
Judy Morris
“I was suffering from severely debilitating lower back pain and finally reached my breaking point. I picked up the phone and called Basics First. Despite being the weekend, I received a call from one of the Doctors, who assured me that they could help. They squeezed me in for a consultation and treatment that Monday. When I walked in, I could barely move (not an exaggeration). When I woke up on Tuesday morning (the day after my visit), I was ecstatic to find my condition greatly improved.
I was skeptical about what one visit could actually accomplish, but after experiencing it for myself, I’m officially a believer. Don’t be as stubborn as I was. If you are feeling pain, set up an appointment!”
