A condition affecting the spine
What People Are Saying
AMIT technique is like magic. It’s Amazing the improvement [in my neck muscles] and the range of motion! My neck feels so much better. Decreased pain, I can sleep so much better, it feels stronger and doesn’t fatigue like it used to.
I play soccer, CC skiing, all kinds of physical things. I had pain in my knee and hamstring. I couldn’t run and every week after soccer I would be sore from the waist down in various places. We worked on a muscle in the heel and calf, and now I’m not sore at all from the waist down and I’m doing all the activities I used to. The care is so targeted to the problem areas during the visit, that I don’t have to go home and do more exercises to make the treatments work. The results are much more instantaneous [and] I haven’t had to come in 3 times per week to get the results. I’m the world’s biggest skeptic with alternative treatments. But this has worked!
I was in a car accident and tore my MCL. I was told I would need physical therapy for a year. Physical therapy was slow and after two months I was still walking in a leg brace. Dr. Geck did his work on my leg, and I walked out that same day without my crutches or my brace on. Later that week at my physical therapy visit they wondered what I did because of the improvements. I was dismissed from physical therapy 7 months earlier than they expected. I was a fitness instructor, and they told me I probably wouldn’t be able to teach again. But I’ve not needed by brace or crutches after seeing Dr. Geck and I have been teaching my class for the past 9 months.
Before I came to Dr. Geck, my hips, shoulders, and back hurt every day. I am a rower, which takes a lot of work. After the first day, I felt so much better and we worked out all the pain I had. This work gives an athlete an edge. When most athletes get injured, it takes them a month or 6 weeks to recover, but with this it takes only a few days or a week.
Dr Geck’s chiropractic care along with the AMIT have really helped my shoulder. While I used to be able to do push-ups, I had not been able to do even one pushup for several years due to pain and weakness in my left shoulder. Now I can do 20 bent knee push ups with no pain! (I am a 60 year old female).
I have never felt better than I have since seeing Dr. Geck and his amazing therapists. I can’t really explain how magical it is. Recently I was in an accident and in just three visits, I was feeling better. I could move my neck and back freely, and even though the bruises were still present, I was thrilled that Dr. Geck and his staff could make me feel so much better.
Stabbing, burning, and shooting pain are classic signs of spinal disc and sciatic problems
Many Americans suffer with disc issues, but luckily, the right treatment is incredibly effective.
Your spine consists of a stack of 33 vertebrae, each with a disc in between. The disks are made of a thick fibrous outer lining and a soft core containing a gel-like substance. These discs act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae. The disc should be thick to create a good space between each vertebra and allow the nerve impulses to flow freely. The spine plays an extremely important role in our bodies. Unfortunately, there are a host of spinal disc and/or resulting nerve problems that will cause back pain and interfere with day to day activities.
A condition affecting the spine
A condition affecting the spine, in which a slight protrusion of the disc is apparent but has not yet herniated. The protrusion, in some cases, can apply pressure to a nerve(s) causing back pain.

A painful symptom that may be caused by general compression
A painful symptom that may be caused by general compression and/or irritation of one of five nerve roots that give rise to the sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve itself. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, and/or various parts of the leg and foot.
A condition in which the spinal canal - the spaces through which the spinal cord runs
A condition in which the spinal canal-the spaces through which the spinal cord runs- narrows and compresses the spinal cord and sciatic nerve roots.
A condition affecting the spine, that begins as disc bulge
A condition affecting the spine, that begins as disc bulge but created so much pressure on the outer wall of the disc that a rupture occurs allowing the gel-like, inner core of the disc to leak into the spinal canal. In most cases pressure is applied to nerve(s) causing chronic back pain.
Degenerative Disc Disease
A common condition that occurs when the spinal discs begin to break down, often causing severe back pain.
Low back pain, sciatic pain, and disc herniation can become debilitating. Luckily, there are treatments for such issues that provide phenomenal results! In our specialized disc treatments and nerve repair treatments, an 86-92% of improvement is seen with disc herniation. 86% of sciatic sufferers had “good” to “excellent” relief, and 94% felt good even a year after treatment.
