We love Dr. Besser and his wonderful staff. I suffer from chronic back pain and I have never felt better. I trust him so much I bring all three of my kids in to see him. They are friendly and really listen. It is a wonderful environment for the whole family.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Besser or his staff. After years of chronic back pain I decided to seek help and I'm so glad I did. In just 4 months the improvement to my back pain is unbelievable! Dr. Besser does great work and (this is super important to me) is very honest. I started with 3X a week and then as I improved it was 2X to 1X to now every 1X every 2 weeks.
I also have to note how friendly they are and what a pleasure it is to be welcomed with a smile.
Seriously - give them a chance. Your body will thank you for it.

1. I started coming to Dr. Besser because I had continual pain in my neck that prevented me from turning my head completely. Every rotation of my head caused my neck to hurt extremely bad.
2. Driving was difficult, looking sideways when someone was talking to me was hard. It was really interfering with many aspects of my life.
3. I had gone to a M.D., physical therapy, and taken pain meds but nothing would help for a prolonged amount of time.
4. I started seeing Dr. Besser and within two weeks the pain had improved. My ability to turn my head back & forth had returned & the aching in my head from my neck hurting was gone.
5. I have improved so much from the work & effort Dr. Besser has invested in me. My daily life is an example of what good listening, excellent ability and long term benefit of getting my chiropractic work done at Back Pain Relief Center.
6. I have and will continue to tell everyone I know how excellent the services Dr. Besser offers are. He also has an excellent office staff who answered all my questions, checked on my insurance benefits, and made me feel welcome and comfortable from the very first phone call I made there and who I still look forward to seeing each time I go in for an appointment.
Amazing skill, amazing treatment, happy and professional in all aspects of Dr. Besser's Back Pain Relief Center.
On the advice of my insurance agent after being rear-ended in my car, I went to Dr. Besser within a few days of my injury.
On the advice of my insurance agent after being rear-ended in my car, I went to Dr. Besser within a few days of my injury. I was experiencing severe neck and shoulder pain that limited my movement.
The pain varied in severity and location from day to day and Dr. Besser was able to work out a variety of treatments depending upon my symptoms. For example, at various points in time during my treatment, I couldn’t sleep due to the pain in my neck, shoulders, and back. At each variation in symptoms he willingly and thoughtfully created a new plan to help relieve my discomfort.
I tried heat, ice and Tylenol to relieve the pain, to no avail. Once I got into Dr. Besser’s capable hands and began his treatment, he was able and very willing to modify the plan to respond to my ever-changing pain locations and levels.
After his personal analysis, x-rays and examination, Dr. Besser developed a plan using a variety of techniques available through his chiropractic clinic, fully willing to modify his plan and techniques to mitigate my pain as needed.
My ability to move my neck and shoulders has increased, but it continues to be problematic, and I still need Dr. Besser’s help to control my symptoms as my treatment seems to continually need modification to address the changing levels and location of pain. I am confident he will pay close attention to a plan that will help me get better.
I have never experienced such personalized attention and involvement in my medical well-being from any other medical professional in developing a personalized plan to address my needs. His office and staff reflect his commitment to his patients in a very positive environment. Needless to say, I have already referred one of my friends to his office and will continue to do so. This has been my first experience with chiropractic and, all in all, it has been very positive.
I had a radiating pain on the left side of my lower back. I was having a hard time sleeping, walking, bending, etc
After I fell – hard – on my back, the muscle spasms in my lower back caused agonizing pain. Hot pads, creams, and over the counter medications were little or no help at all. I realized after four days that there was no improvement.
Fortunately, I have had help in the past from a wonderful Chiropractor but he retired years ago, so I had no idea how I was going to find someone new. Serendipitously, on my way to work, I spotted a banner just down the street from my office. It announced that Dr. Stephen Besser was accepting new patients! Kismet!
My boss was kind enough to stop into Dr. Besser’s clinic, was very impressed by the facility and the friendly reception. Fortunately, Dr. Besser’s assistant, Gloria, was able to make time for me that same day.
Dr. Besser’s examination was gentle but thorough. He determined what treatment would best alleviate my condition. Dr. Besser worked with me, not on me to control the conditions that were causing the pain, (I was impressed!)
Did I mention Magic Hands? Dr. Stephen Besser knows by touch where the trouble is and how to relieve it.
