Although my wife has been a believer in Chiropractic Care for many years I have always been a skeptic. That is until I was prompted by a repeated wrist problem that was being aggravated by my use of computers. My family has two practicing graduates of the renowned Palmer
When I was prompted to see Dr.’s Poon and Lin by my wife I was reluctant but was willing to give it a try. To my surprise, and with a totally different approach than what I was familiar with, they proceeded to diagnose me using x-rays and modern techniques and then created a treatment plan. Once I started the treatment I didn’t recognize improvement right away and a few times it hurt so bad that it almost scared me into not coming back. I discussed it with Dr. Lin and he was very supportive in helping me understand what I could expect.
After a few short months of weekly, and a few semi-weekly, visits I began to see dramatic improvement. By the end of four months I was down to a monthly visit with no remaining pain in my wrist. In addition to the wrist they also eliminated the pain I had had in my neck for many years even though at the time I considered it minor I didn’t realize how much it had affected me over the years.
It is now four months since my last visits. I am in no pain, in the gym full-time, and am in the best shape I’ve been for 20 or more years. I can’t say enough for the quality of care and for the overall experience I’ve had with ACE Wellness. I’m now a firm believer in Chiropractic care and have completely turned around my once jaded viewpoint.

Ace Wellness helped me recover where others failed.
About 8 months ago I started having extreme pain in my leg, hip, and back. I went through 2 doctors and 1 physical therapist, whom all failed to diagnose my problem or treat the pain. In other words, they wasted my time, money, and added to the deterioration of my health.
Dr. Lin at Ace Wellness not only had a clear idea of my problem after the first visit, but was also able to get me on the road to physical recovery right away. It is very important to know that chiropractors like Dr. Lin work very hard to solve the root cause of physical pain, not just the pain itself where other doctors will often suggest drugs.
It has been around 2 months since my first visit at Ace Wellness and the vast majority of my issues have been resolved. Dr. Lin has given me a fully-customized workout plan that will take me the rest of the way without recurring office visits. I can now run, hike, and do all the activities I loved prior to my ordeal.
The people at Ace Wellness are all very helpful and caring of people's conditions. I had a horrid weightlifting accident and it has been creeping back into my life on a pretty cicular basis. Every time I have worked with Dr. Lin, I've been able to get back in working order rather quickly.
He will always do what he needs to in order to help you and never really consider what insurance will or will not pay.
They are on your side, and in this day and age of greed, they are worth their weight in gold!
Over the years I had seen a few different chiropractors. Everyone had their own approach to my care. Some worked others didn’t. After I was rear ended on the freeway I was introduced to ACE WELLNESS. They handle my case great and listened to me desribe my symptoms. After a few visits I started feeling better. Everyone one there is warm and friendly. I could go on and on with the satisfaction I feel after visiting there. But I will sum it up in one word HAPPINESS!!!
For many years I have existed with continuous headaches and migraines. I tried never to let it stop me from living life, but sometimes the pain was so constant that I was too worn out to truly enjoy what I was doing. I went for frequent massage therapy. It alleviated the pain for short periods of time, but the headaches and migraines would always come back. I had also had surgery, which helped alleviate some of the reason for the headaches and migraines, but it was not taking care of other issues that chiropractic work has been able to do.
About two months ago, I began seeing Dr. Poon at the suggestion of my primary care doctor and massage therapist. After X-rays, Dr. Poon was able to show me that my spine was curved to the side in my neck area and that I was also holding my head up with my upper back muscles because my spine in my neck area was too straight instead of curved like a C as it should be. This was the cause of my continuing headaches and migraines.
Dr. Poon began working on releasing knots in my muscles and adjusting my spine. I also began using a traction that was retraining my spine to curve, as it should. Dr. Poon gave me stretches and exercises to complete on a daily basis to strengthen muscles that were unused to working as they should and stretching muscles that were contracting because they were doing the work they shouldn’t.
I especially appreciated Dr. Poon’s willingness to only begin work after she assessed my condition. I found this to be a reasonable medical care. I also appreciated Dr. Poon’s willingness to educate me about how my body was working and how it should be working.
Because the headaches and migraines so permeated my life, I was not aware of how my back pain was affecting my energy levels. After two months receiving treatment from Dr. Poon, I now realize that a person’s back is not supposed to be tight and painful. Spinal adjustments have brought a while new appreciation into my life as I enjoy the walking and other activities with renewed energy.
I am looking forward to continuing my work with Dr. Poon as I reclaim my body and get healthier and stronger through physical work and increased knowledge. I hope that my experience with chiropractic work will encourage you to go to the root of your physical problems and learn how to strengthen your body, too.

When I came into ACE Wellness, I had been having severe lower back pain for almost 3 weeks. By the time I came in, it was difficult for me to get up from a sitting or lying position. I could not bend down and it was painful to walk. I had gone to my primary care physician after the first week of pain and pain medication and muscle relaxant were prescribed. I also tried stretching and exercising.
A friend of mine suggested that I try Acupuncture, so I called my healthcare agency and they recommended Dr. Esther Poon.
After 5 treatments I felt significantly better and have been able to resume gardening and quilting. I would recommend Acupuncture to anyone suffering from pain. The staff at ACE Wellness is caring and professional. Best of all, Acupuncture is soothing, not painful!
I originally came in with lower back pain, which Dr. Lin took care of in two sessions. I did not think anything could be done about my left shoulder pain and limited range of motion. I was on anti-inflammatory medicine for arthritis and had done some individual stretching on the shoulder, but I did not think it would get any better than about 75% range of motion and pain when the limits were reached. I was sure I would just have to live with these limitations.
After 4 months, I have almost 100% range of motion in my left arm and shoulder and there is no pain. My back is more relaxed and my golf swing has improved with less tension no worries about pain. Where I had been slicing the ball because I was not completing my swing, I now hit the ball straighter and occasionally with a slight draw as I am able to get through the swing completely.
After my previous Chiropractor retired, I looked for someone on the eastside and who also offered Acupuncture as an alternative. I was going to try several Chiropractors before I pick one as a primary provider, but after locating ACE Wellness on the internet and having one treatment, I did not bother to go anywhere else.
I am a firm believer in the value of Chiropractic care and encourage others to try it.
