"Awesome, Michael Mathis. My experience with Dr. Derek Conte Dc has been tremendous as well. I knew Chiropractic Can be very healing, but did not have a chiropractor.... I decided to give Dr. Conte' a try, and the adjustments have been very helpful in alleviating pain and increasing my range-of-motion. For women who have been diagnosed with degenerative spine, or osteoporosis, its very important to take extra-special care of that area. I'm also thrilled that Chiropractic appears to reduce my susceptibility to colds and other ills because my immune system is more fully engaged. I highly recommend Dr. Derek Conte."
"My first visit to a chiropractor took place when I was 78 years old. I had severe pain in my knee due to arthritis and tendonitis. I arrived at Dr. Conte’s office unable to walk without a cane. After this initial visit I was able to leave the office without the cane. That was impressive. Due to a previous accident that I had eight years ago my body was severely out of alignment and I carried more weight on one side. Dr. Conte was able to rectify this condition as well. He recognized that this imbalance was connected to my knee pain. After several adjustments I began to feel much better.
Dr. Conte is very knowledgeable and skilled and has a very pleasant demeanor. I would highly recommend him without hesitation."
"Dr. Conte has been a miracle worker. When I first came to see him, I suffered from lower back pain, migraine headaches, chronic sinus problems, soreness in my foot and acid reflux. Through adjustment and dietary consultation, Dr. Conte has eliminated my headaches, sinus problem and foot pains completely. I didn’t even have allergy problems this Spring as I have in the past! In addition, I no longer deal with indigestion or acid reflux on a daily or even weekly basis. I’ve lost more than twenty-five pounds and gained a balance in my stance. My posture was very poor in the beginning and I had believed it was genetic. Wrong again! Dr. Conte had me standing up straight which was a great improvement to my confidence, not to mention it has made my fiancée’ smile. Dr. Conte really had improved my life through small steps."
"Dear Dr. Conte,
I just had to drop you a note to tell you just how grateful I am that I followed the recommendation of a friend to seek your chiropractic acumen. YOU SAVED ME from a very painful and debilitating neck/arm/hand syndrome. Your diagnosis was brilliant! Your thorough adjustment techniques have truly changed my body – I am healing and improving daily.
Thanks also for adjusting my husband, Alan, and son, Matthew. They were skeptical about the long trip (we live 25 miles away) but were so impressed as I. We all plan to be long-time patients and will definitely refer our friends and co-workers your way."
"For almost one year, I enjoyed Dr. Conte’s articles on chiropractic care in our local neighborhood newspaper, Bright Side, before making my first appointment with hopes of relieving the pain my lower back.
After several months of thorough chiropractic care, not only has the pain in my lower back disappeared but other health issues have improved as well. It’s been over one month since I’ve taken my daily sinus/allergy medication. I’ve also had problems with high blood pressure for many years. On my annual physical exam I last week, my blood pressure reading was the lowest in twenty years.
Dr. Conte wrote in his most recent article of the overall benefits of regular chiropractic care. I am thrilled with the overall improvements in my health since becoming a patient of Chiropractic Specialists of Smyrna."
"This is the first “testimonial” I have ever written, but I just had an amazing experience with Dr. Conte that I’d like to share.
I became a patient of Dr. Conte’s a few months ago. I hurt my lower back lifting a box of logs (or so I thought) about 2 ½ years ago. The lower back pain was always there…sometimes dull, more severe in the morning and at night. Over the course of 2 years I saw 3 different chiropractors, had x-rays done by my general physician, and was referred to a center for physical therapy. For the most part the pain persevered, getting worse over the 2 year period. I read an article by Dr. Conte, and thought I would give chiropractic one last try since he seemed so knowledgeable in the article!"
"I went to see Dr. Conte for my complimentary consultation not really expecting to feel any different than I did at that time. Now, after seeing him for three months, I feel great. I always had a slight stiffness in my neck and lower back. I guess I had gotten so used to it that I didn’t realize how much discomfort I had been living with. It is amazing the difference I feel. I have more energy and feel less fatigue throughout my whole body. I also sleep more comfortably and fall asleep faster. Not to mention that I wake up feeling more energetic.
I would recommend Dr. Conte to anyone who could benefit from his expertise."
"I first came to Dr. Conte in the throes of terrible migraine attacks. I was having a migraine every day. I was spending hours in the doctor’s office and emergency room. Drugs simply made me groggy and unable to work. I began chiropractic care hopeful, but not expecting too much. However, after a few sessions, my headaches began to lessen in severity and frequency. After several weeks, my headaches stopped almost completely. Even through a medication change which would have triggered migraines in the past, my head has not hurt! The drugs that kept me from getting out of bed have become unnecessary."
"Dear Dr. Conte,
Thank you so much for restoring my health. When I first began to see you in October I was suffering from one illness after another. I also appreciate your insistence that I seek medical attention and get on antibiotics when I needed them.
I no longer suffer from constant neck and hip pain. My ankles and knees don’t hurt anymore. I feel like a new person."
"Dear Dr. Conte,
When I had my car accident I experienced lower and upper back pain. My primary care doctor prescribed pain relievers and muscle relaxants. This cocktail of medicine left me in a lethargic state, not to mention that it didn’t heal me.
Upon the recommendation of a friend, I went to Dr. Conte. Being somewhat of a skeptic, I reluctantly paid a visit to Dr. Conte.
I received immediate relief from my pain. I highly recommend Dr. Conte. He’s very skilled and professional."
"My first visit with Dr. Conte was the complimentary visit that I was given. I was a little bit skeptical at first because I didn’t really know what to expect. Dr. Conte showed me things about the nerves and bones that I never knew. When I first came I had problems with my sinuses. I never would have thought that it could have anything to do with the position of my spine. Since Dr. Conte began to make adjustments I haven’t had one single headache. I have so much more energy and I’m sleeping better than I have in quite a while. I can see a difference in my posture and I feel great! Thank you Dr. Conte!!"
"Dear Dr. Conte,
I would like to take a minute and say, “Thank you”. It has been 5 months since my last adjustment. I have had neck and back pain for 30 years and have had mixed results with other Chiropractors in the past. I have been pain free since my last adjustment."
"Four months ago I began having regular visits with Dr. Conte. At that time my body was not balanced. I believe it was 85 lbs. on the right and 65 lbs. on the left. I was also suffering with a bout of Gout.
Dr. Conte realigned my body gave me valuable nutritional advice (for my gout) and cleared my chronic sinus and allergy problem. When I first came to Dr. Conte (at the urging of my friend) I was a skeptic. But now, I am a believer in him and in chiropractic science."
Thank you so much for helping me. With your knowledge about CranioSacral Therapy, I have gone almost 6 months without a seizure, migraine or tremor. Prior to learning about CranioSacral therapy, I was in and out of the hospital, doctor office and physical therapy offices; (I was having seizures once or twice a week.)
The results after a few weeks of you helping me were remarkable. I began to sleep better, breathe easier, and feel as if I was going to overcome my problems.
Thank you so much for helping me overcome the discomfort, pain and grief. Because of CranioSacral therapy, I am able to function and most importantly be the mom my very energetic 10-year son needs me to be."
"I started receiving care from Dr. Conte in July 2001. I had been in a car accident in January and received whiplash, neck pain, and lower lumbar pain. I had received medical attention but the pain lingered. I decided to take advantage of the free consultation offered by Dr. Conte when he established his business.
He took the time to explain reasons behind the pain and listened to the history behind all my ailments including my persistent headaches. Today I feel better than I ever have. I was coming twice a week. Now, I’m coming once a month. I no longer have neck pain. I have fewer headaches and I feel great! Dr. Conte has a unique style. He is consistent, compassionate about his work and offers a flexible schedule. I highly recommend that you take advantage of your free consultation."
"I first consulted Dr. Conte in October of last year concerning problems with my neck, back and knee. After 20 sessions, I can say that I am much improved. After three or four sessions, my neck was not as stiff and my overall flexibility improved greatly.
I have found that tasks associated with my job do not hurt me now as they did in the past. My posture has improved and my knee is much better.
I have used other chiropractors and found some relief, but the approach Dr. Conte used to target my specific physical imbalances worked as never before.
Thank you so much and I hope to continue the treatments in the future."
"Prior to visiting Dr. Conte, I had never received chiropractic care and was skeptical about its effectiveness. I began seeing Dr. Conte in September of 2001 and have been under his care for 10 months.
I sought treatment for pain in my hands. The pain was greatly reduced after the first appointment. While under the care of Dr. Conte, I learned a great deal about the benefits of chiropractic care. He always took time to explain why he was performing adjustments and point out the misaligned structures.
Although I began seeing Dr. Conte to treat hand pain, he has successfully treated other ailments. I used to have migraine headaches 1-2 times per week. My headaches are now much less frequent and far less debilitating. Since receiving treatment, my seasonal allergies have been almost non-existent. I did not realize that chiropractic treatment has so many benefits.
I recommend Dr. Conte to anyone seeing a chiropractic professional."
I say friends, because to know Dr. Conte would make you my friend, also. I just know that is what is happening in his office every day.
And that’s not all … in the one year of my treatment in his office, I am better head-to-toe literally, and in many ways inside and out. I mean it, really!
I am an active 60-year old hands-on contractor/remodeler. Dr. Conte makes it possible for me to work with a greater degree of flexibility and comfort.
I could go on, but I think I got my point across. Good job, Dr. Conte, because I’m able to do my job better."
