I have been a patient at Team Chiropractic for several years now and would highly recommend their services. Initially, I came in with chronic low back pain due to heavy lifting in my job as an RN. At it's worst I was unable to lift a sock! I was on bed rest, taking medications, doing physical therapy and still without relief. At it's best I was left with chronic pain often radiating down both legs and unable to do the things I love. With Dr.Dodd and Team Chiropractic, most all of my symptoms are gone, I have shown some disc regeneration by x-ray and I am able to do the things I enjoy. Since going to them I've resumed swimming, competed in triathalons, have run five 1/2 marathons and I am no longer in constant pain. Furthermore, as a side benefit, I've also stopped getting frequent headaches and no longer need allergy medication. Their office hours are convenient, and the doctors very knowledgeable about diet, exercise and living a healthy lifestyle. I would recommend Dr. Dodd and Dr. Baird to anyone who wants to regain their life and health back.
Spinal re-engineering produces great results....
My experience at Team Chiropractic has been a very positive one from the very beginning. Before I even began treatment I had many close friends who had nothing but great things to say about chiropractic treatment and the staff at Team Chiropractic. I decided to go for a discounted consultation that included x-rays and evaluation, even though I hadn't had any major issues or pain only neck stiffness and some discomfort. Little did I know that I had significant subluxations in my neck and lower back.
It has been almost six months after fully committing to the recommended treatment plan and I must say that the improvements are impressive. My neck stiffness was gone within the first month of treatment. My forward head posture had been reduced from 25mm to 10mm by the three month mark (proven by x-rays before and after). When I started treatment my LDL (bad cholesterol) was up to 179 and my physician wanted to put me on a cholesterol-lowering medication. However, after regular chiropractic adjustments and following suggested purification, diet, and exercise routines, my LDL is now down 33 points to 146! And that's without ever taking a single dose of medication!
I would say that without a doubt, Team Chiropractic and their approach to spinal re-engineering and total wellness has improved my life. I still have room to improve, but I am now well on my way to leading a healthier life because of the efforts of Dr. Dodd, Dr. Baird, and the staff in the Raleigh office.
In my opinion, Dr. Dodd would make a great Amway sales leader; but he did not seem like a healer to me. After an intake, examination and x-rays with Dr. Baird I was given another appointment without being adjusted even though I was in pain.
The next visit was with Dr. Dodd who did a presentation after a tape that four of us were made to watch as a group. I felt like I was being marketed to rather than being listened to. We were then told that Dr. Dodd was “accepting” us as patients. I was asked to put myself in a pain category as the other patients in the room listened and participated in the same process. This was very disconcerting to me. There was mention of the fact that he was glad to see a husband in the room who was willing to give support to his wife during her recovery. I was then adjusted by Dr. Dodd who had mentioned to the group that he had reviewed our charts and x-rays. I was not asked any questions by him prior to my adjustment. I found this to be a bit annoying since Dr. Dodd spent much more time with the group presentation than with getting to know my concerns. I was told that the first two adjustments were included in the initial evaluation, which was discounted because I watched a video on their website.
At the last visit I was brought into the room with another patient who supposedly was at the same spinal injury level category as me, even though I found out that we had completely different symptoms. Before beginning, I had explained to both the staff person at reception and to Dr. Dodd himself that I needed to leave at a certain time. Undeterred, Dr. Dodd began his Power Point presentation explaining our treatment plan, which consisted of the same visits for both of us. And included the recommendation that our spouses come with us to support us in our healing process. It was then that I learned for the first time that Team Chiropractic did not take ANY insurance, even though I had several conversations with the staff including Dr. Baird that I was paying as an out of network patient and working toward my deductible. They even took my insurance card at my initial registration. Although Dr. Dodd explained that we would be credited back the amount of our deductible in the payment plan if we completed all 116 visits, this does not help to pay down my deductible if they don’t participate with any insurance companies. Also, without examining me himself, Dr. Dodd could tell both of us that we would heal in the exact same number of visits even though we had different symptoms. I was also told that I would not get the credit on my Team Chiropractic bill if stopped before the prescribed time (IE: I began feeling better). I tried to leave, but Dr. Dodd insisted on finishing his presentation and wanted us to commit to a payment plan. I said I needed time to think about it and discuss it with my husband. Due to this I felt pressured while he was adjusting me: especially when he tried to get me to commit to speaking with my husband about a joint appointment. Since I did not commit, I was charged for the visit. The charge was the highest I ever paid for a chiropractor visit since Dr. Dodd does not give discounts until you commit to the plan; and he charges you separately to adjust extremities. Dr. Dodd did make a follow up call in which he said his staff should have told me how long the visits would take. I told him that if I wasn’t in so much pain, I would have walked out that last day prior to his presentation. As it turns out I should have never got adjusted when I was so stressed. It just made things worse. By the end of the conversation, I was convinced that he didn’t hear a thing I said because he repeated that the staff should have told me how long the second appointment takes even though I had told him that day I could not stay that long and had complained about much more than just the length of the appointment. He did offer a complementary adjustment if I returned. He did not offer to refund my money.
Finally Pain Free. I have been seeing chiropractors since High School for recurring back pain, that would come back sometimes a day after my adjustment. I considered this constant, dull pain my normal state of existence. I also began suffering from plantar fasciitis a few years ago, and exacerbated the condition while running a 5K last spring. Now my normal state included daily foot and ankle pain that stopped my running and limited my workouts to spin classes and non-weight-bearing activities. After my first treatment with Dr. Dodd, my back 'pain' was all but gone and my foot pain WAS GONE! In less than 3 months, I no longer experience back pain and I am back on a 5K training plan. In addition, I have been sleeping more soundly and have more energy throughout the day. Dr. Dodd explains the reason behind why things happen in the body so that even non-medical personnel can understand. Everyone on staff is always friendly and available to answer any questions I have. I am a patient for life!
Nothing Short of Miraculous. I called this practice when I was suffering from intense sciatica pain and unable to function except to go to work. I could not even walk a block without crying. They met me the same day, took x-rays and gave me a discount. I was going to physical therapy for months and was continually getting worse. My physician finally scheduled a MRI and a large herniation was found on my L4 disk and pressing on my spinal cord. I was losing feeling in my legs and becoming weaker. A Duke neurosurgeon recommended immediate surgery. After continuing with this chiropractor without surgery, I regained strength in my legs and ankle and my sciatica pain is virtually gone. I am now walking again and even went on an adventure trip to the Galapagos without any problems. The curvature of my spine in my neck went from 33mm off to 6 mm in only 3 months. I would recommend this team of chiropractors, especially Dr. Dodd, to anyone without hesitation. What they have done is nothing short of miraculous.
My son's allergy symptoms are just about clear..
I originally began seeing Dr. Dodd due to a lower back injury. As I began my first few months of treatment I heard more and more about the success that other patients had with bringing their children in to relieve allergy symptoms.
My son is 13 and has suffered from dust and mold allergies since he was 5. He was on Allegra, Nasonex spray for his nose and Pataday eyedrops. I wash everything in his room, weekly, in hot water. Everytime we went out of town to a hotel or he went for a sleepover anywhere, we would "get him ready" with his meds so that he could breathe and so that his eyes would not itch. He had gotten so bad that he would need his medicine almost daily to get through the gym locker room at school or survive in some of the school trailers.
Now I was not a fan of my son being on prescription medication. A steroid nasal spray was not something I wanted him to use for the rest of his life. And so, after my trust was built with Dr. Dodd and his team, I brought my son in. I figured that I couldn't get him off his medicine if I didn't give something else a try...
Now this may be truly hard to believe, I still get very strange looks form some friends when I mention this - but my son has not had to take any of his prescription medication in at least the last 6 months. There is a vertebrae in his neck that was out of alignment which was throwing off his sinus reactions. Since working with Dr. Dodd and Dr. Baird, my son has seen amazing results. I feel so blessed that he is not reliant upon steroids anymore and does not wake up running to the bathroom to blow his nose. He breathes easy, his eyes aren't itchy...he even helped me clean out air filters this weekend - without a single drop of prescription needed.
To top it off, my son really enjoys coming in to the office - the entire office staff are such great people he is totally relaxed about coming in for his appointments and even looks forward to them. (we are talking about a 13 year old here...know what I mean??)
Anyhow, I cannot say enough about the wonderful people at Team Chiropractic. I am forever thankful for the work they have done on my son.
Very Please with the Team......
I am celebrating going to Team Chiropractic for 9 months of treatment. I initially went in for a shoulder and back issue as a result of military accidents that I have been treated for over 10 years that have never been resolved except through the use of pain killers and the next steps were to be operations. Along with that, I had also been recently diagnosed with diabetes and was placed on insulin.
From the start all the whole staff has treated me with the best customer service. I have felt in complete control of what is happening with me and they allow you to make the decisions that you need to make.
From the start I was diagnosed with a reverse curve and Dr. Dodd had also diagnosed each problem I had had from the military before I released my records to be reviewed. I was also very pleased with the secondary review outside their practice that Team Chiropractic had found more of my issues without being told by me what they were.
After 4 months of 3 adjustments a week, I took myself off of insulin and the pain in my shoulder and back is now at a minimum. My expectation over the long term is that I will have minimal issues and be able to recover from what the military could not help me with. I am also hoping that through consultation and the better living advice that is offered by the Team that I may eventually also become medicine free for my diabetes and not having to take any more pain killers for my back.
My work takes me away from the area and the team has worked with me and my situation to allow me to be treated on my schedule. Also they have worked very hard with the VA to reduce my costs going into the program. Each day I drive Pittsboro into Raleigh for my adjustments at Dr. Dodd’s office and would not change to another location regardless of the distance.
After being seen by Dr. Dodd and Team Chiropractic I do believe that all of my issues that I have been caused by spinal misalignment. I had been afraid of using Chiropractors from misinformation that conventional doctors speak about Chiropractors. After several MRI’s and a lot of pills I realized I have to do something now and that I had to do it myself. I am so glad I did.
On a note Dr. Crilley's power chunches and Dr. Baird's almost whole body alignnments have been an experience and the best.... I am glad that the whole team every day takes the time to feal you out and understand what issues you are having and work with you plan.
Again, Thank you Dr. Dodd....and the rest of the Team Chiropractic!!! You have given me back a normal life.
Very Happy with the results.
I started going to Team Chiro about a year ago for sever backache. We thought it might have to do with taking an epidural. I am very glad I did!. The pain has gone. My posture is a lot better. My before and after xrays show a big difference. I had disk space regeneration.
The office staff are real nice too. Plus the office is kid friendly.
No Nonsense, Great Results. Team Chiro is very different. Their philosophy is few gimmicks (EMS, traction tables, ultrasound) to pamper you but focus only on what matters to be fit and healthy. Saves time and $ with top results to ditch the feel-good fluff that I've come to expect from chiros, but it took an "attitude adjustment" to trade my cynical assembly-line assessment for the realization that Dr. Dodd's model saves us BOTH time, and allows him to offer discount packages for annual are. Another difference from other chiro practices is that all chiros seems to be holistic, but instead of some bogus eastern mystic spiritualism, this practice ties everything together with the rational basis of Christianity. I've seen chiros regularly for >:25 years & used Team Chiro for 3-4 years & still find Team Chiro refreshingly different, solid and competent.
