WHAT PRACTICE MEMBERS SAY
Before starting chiropractic care, I had failed back surgery. After I started going to the chiropractor regularly, I slowly was able to walk again unassisted and the pain eventually subsided. My overall health and quality of life drastically changed as a result of chiropractic care.
I have found that I generally feel better and am in less pain when I am regularly going to Dr. George. Not everyone understands or necessarily believes that chiropractic care is an important part of holistic healthcare, but it is !
When I first walked into Rhodes Chiropractic, I had been having serious pain in my back going up into my neck for several weeks. After only a few sessions, not only did the pain subside, but my body started feeling like a car engine after an oil change. Over the next few sessions, I found that my performance at work and my mood in general increased noticeably,
I think of Dr. Rhodes as a modern shaman who combines modern science with ancient intuitive wisdom working with the unseen as the seen. I just love the atmosphere of the office too. As soon as I walk in I feel like I’m in a healing space.
He listens, not only to you but to what your body is saying. It took years for my body to get to the state it is currently in and it will take years to heal my body, this is an ongoing process. The integral difference now is that I have hope. My body is responding to the treatment and for this I am ecstatic. I can only say that that one must always remain open to options, as long as they are safe. Dr Rhodes has opened up my life again and I thank him and his team for that.
He also cares enough to answer all my questions and seem to really enjoy doing so. His approach definitely offers a unique way of treating neck pain because it addresses the many imbalances ( neural, musculoskeletal, and energetic) that contribute to and are impacted by spinal misalignment. It works! If it's your first experience with chiropractic care, come with an open mind. It could change your life.
Dr. Rhodes is my BOY!
He has saved my life. He's hilarious, studied, constantly studying chiropractic, and going to lectures. He's been in practice for 30 years and my body has never felt stronger and more happy in my life.
Why didn't I go to a chiropractor as a child? WHY?!
Seriously, no matter how fucked your back is, go to him. GO GO GO. You will not regret it.
And, he's a fascinating character.
Rhodes Family Chiropractic has been one of the best investments I’ve ever made into my body + health.
I initially found this practice after suffering a terrible tailbone injury (snow tubing, of all places!) and was desperate for help. After going to an urgent care and getting X-rays and being told it wasn’t broken…but not being able to lay down and barely being able to walk or sit, I found Dr. Rhodes. I’ve been to chiros before—had a herniated disk at 16 and a tailbone injury at 19. I just considered myself someone with a “broken back”. At first, I was surprised at how Dr. Rhodes adjusts, and shocked at how he was able to tell me what was wrong as soon as I walked into the room! His adjustments are gentle and he truly cares so much about his patients and the world. He doesn’t just ask where you have pain and adjust based on that—he asks your body what is coming up at the moment and goes from there. Healing is not a linear path and Dr. Rhodes truly embodies this. He allows your body what it needs, when it needs it. My tailbone no longer causes me problems, and I don’t identify as “broken” anymore. I trust him fully and recommend him to everyone—even got my non-holistic boyfriend to start attending! If you are looking for a chiropractor in Philly, he’s the one.
Grateful to have connected with a genuine Chiropractor who educated his clients on the importance of Chiropractic work. Dr. Rhodes is very knowledgeable on his craft and always approached my questions & concerns with care. Ever since I started appointments, I've had les brain fog and feel more energized for my body to do what it's meant to. I highly recommend Dr. Rhodes for he is at the top of the Chiropractic industry!
Just a week or two before I had my first chiropractic adjustment ever with Dr.Rhodes I experienced chronic knee pain that I thought would just be something I had to manage for the rest of my life. After only a few weeks of adjustments I was able to walk up and down stairs with no pain at all. I'm continuing to see added benefits to all aspects of my life from the caring chiropractic care I receive from Dr. Rhodes!
After injuring my lower back in college and completing physical therapy, I had to start seeking regular chiropractic care for maintenance due to recurring lower back pain. I've been to several chiropractors in the last 10 years and the experience has always been the same. I would show up, a chiropractor would adjust me, and then I'd go home. The pain always returned despite how healthy of a lifestyle I would try to uphold. Some offices suggested cortisol shots, some suggesting I get adjusted more often, some sent me back to physical therapy, but the back pain always returned. Having a very physically demanding job, my back pain turned into knee pain, and then hip pain. It seemed the more I worried about my body, the more it was falling apart. Then one day a colleague of mine recommended Dr. Rhodes to me after he healed the back injury that had kept her from sleeping on her back for years. It has been a lifechanging experience. Word of caution- this is not typical chiropractic care and his methods are not for everybody, so you have to go in with an open mind. Alongside what we know as regular adjustments, Dr. Rhodes operates on a holistic and spiritual approach combining western and eastern philosophies of healing. His methods take into account not just your medical history, but your trauma history, what is currently or had gone on in your life that your body has held onto and he asks it what it needs before he does anything. Every visit is different, and he will sometimes talk your ear off, but I've always left here feeling stronger in both mind and body. He and his front desk staff really do make you feel like family. Highly recommend for those seeking holistic chiropractic care in a laid back environment.
I've back problems since I was 14 years old starting with stress fractures in my lumbar spine that led to asymmetrical hips, improper training, and overall discomfort. I have tried physical therapy, muscle massage, orthopedic consultations, and even consistent yoga with no luck. In just a few months with Dr. Rhodes, I finally see and feel progress in not only my pain levels, but also my muscle activation, balance, and overall health. Visiting Dr.Rhodes is not a quick one time visit and fix, but an investment that heals long-time injuries and prevents future ones. Can't recommend enough!
