Last year I feel 10 feet off a ladder onto my back that caused immediate pain. Went to the company doctor who examined my back and said nothing was broken and gave me a list of muscle relaxants and pain killers to take but return to work. Two weeks went by and I was no better and was beginning to limp. Next the company doctor ordered a MRI (after two more weeks of me suffering), and again nothing showed up but a little arthritis. At this point I could hardly walk without a cane. My neighbor told me to go see Dr. DeFranco at Hueytown Chiropractic Clinic. My wife called his office and they got me in that day. He took the time to listen to me about my lower back problem and how it was negatively impacting my life. He reviewed my MRI and was concerned about a lot of issues. He took me to one his nice and comfortable exam rooms whereby a couple of xrays were taken and he examined my back and entire spine. Very comfortable and clean office. After he examined me and went over my xrays he showed me what was wrong with my back which had to do with how my spinal joints were not moving correctly and were out of alignment. His sweet therapist set me up on some therapy to help reduce my muscle spasms and pain. I had never had my back popped but after the massage his assistant game me I was so relaxed she could have done anything to me. He set me up on this fancy table and before I knew it he had popped me back into position and I had almost immediate pain relief. I could bend over to tie my shoes with minimal pain and was walking without pain down my leg. I could not believe I had been hurting for over four weeks, about to loose my job and this doctor got my life back. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

They are very professional and did a great job. I had another water system from a different company and they never could get all the iron out. Thank…

I knew I had found the right doctor for my low back and leg tingling after spending just 5 minutes talking with Dr. DeFranco. He spent plenty of time asking me all kinds of questions about when my problem, what I was doing at the time I got injured and what other doctors I have visited. You certainly can tell he has a lot of experience dealing with low back problems. The bottom line is that pills and exercise was not helping. I had been to two other doctors and he was the first one to touch my back. He pushed my back forward and backward until he foud the joint that was causing all the problems. Four months of leg pain was gone after one visit and my low back was better by the end of the month. I even got my wife to she him about her frozen shoulder problem, and he got her shoulder out of pain and able to move pain free in a matter of weeks. Doc knows fix joints that is for sure! I hope neither one of us has another problem but if I do he is the man with the plan.
Dr. DeFranco and his staff are first class group of people. After visiting them for the first time the shooting pain I had in my lower back that shot through to my rib cage ceased. This problem had been hurting for months to the point I could not turn in bed. They are also very affordable and were willing to work within my budget which meant that I was able to continue going in order to stay on their recommended program which included spinal manipulation, exercises and stretches that the doctor instructed me to use which help strengthen my back so I'm less likely to mess my self up again. Next time I have a back or joint problem, you can bet I want wait so long.
I went to see Dr. DeFranco at Hueytown Chiropractic Clinic after falling down my basement stairs. I was in so much sharp pain that I thought I had broke my low back. They took me right in without waiting. Dr. DeFranco asked me several questions, examined my back and cleaned up my scratches, took some xrays and even ordered a MRI. I was lucky I had not fractured anything but badly damaged some ligaments and spinal joints. He worked out a rehab program to get me out of pain and back working in the yard in no time. He has a sweet and professional staff and a nice office. What a great experience and would recommend anyone with a low back problem to see him.
I had headaches that began after the birth of my last child. After two years of doctor shopping my medical doctor suggested I call his office. I found Dr. DeFranco to be friendly and knowledgeable. He examined my head and neck and reviewed my last MRI and CT scans. He said I had cervicogenic headaches. He said give him two weeks and if I was not 50% better he would stop care. Let me tell you, within two weeks my headaches had gone from almost daily to only once a week and with in four weeks they were gone. I have not had a headache in three years. I highly recommend him to my friends and family.
I went to see Dr. DeFranco at Hueytown Chiropractic Clinic a couple of months ago after I stepped in a hole and hurt my back. I tried pain pills, slept on the floor, medications and heating pads but nothing helped. Finally it got so bad that I could not straighten up or bend over to put on pants. His office got me into see Dr DeFranco and in no time found the source of my problem. He had me standing straight after just one visit! In a short period of time I was out of pain and back in the yard. My back has never felt better. If you want your back fixed, go see him.
Dr. DeFranco got me back to work after being off for months. I walked into his office like a old man, and "snap-pop" he got me straight. Nice modern office. I can not brag on him enough. His little assistants go out of their way to make you comfortable especially when you are scared to death. Did a great job explaining to me what happen to my back and how to prevent from doing it again. Getting old is painful, but thinks to Dr. DeFranco its not so bad.
Saved My Back From Surgery – Dr. DeFranco completely healed my back from a year old injury that had prevented me from dancing, practicing yoga, sitting for long periods of time and chronic pain- he and his staff are kind, professional and most importantly highly skilled at what they do. All the drugs and therapy I received before seeing Dr. DeFranco was a waste of time and money- he is fabulous!
For starters, he has a great staff at the front desk who are very professional and friendly. Very easy to make an appointment and checking out is a breeze. Dr. DeFranco is very good at what he does. He is very courteous and takes the time to ask about any past problems you be experiencing. I love there's minimal waiting time for Dr. DeFranco and you never feel rushed.
My husband and I just love Dr. DeFranco! He saved him from having to have low back surgery several years ago and fixed my injured neck when I was in a bad auto accident. He has kept us going for a number of years now and we would not consider going to anyone else! Wait times are always less than 5 minutes and his staff is sweet and helpful.
