"Scoliosis and Chronic Back Pain"
I have severe scoliosis with a Harrington Rod that I’ve had for 33 years. Pain has increased each year for the past 5. Lower back, neck, hips and thighs. I have arthritis and compressed discs above and below the rod from overcompensation all these years. It’s limited my hobbies like gardening, cleaning and energy level. Sleeping was difficult finding a comfortable position. Yoga, exercise and physical therapy helped some but wasn’t taking the pain away or from spreading to my legs, maybe it would’ve helped a little more if it was done daily. My poor health has not caused me to lose time from work yet, but it affects my mood and effectiveness to help customers. Under Dr. Mahoney’s care I felt a difference immediately. I felt no pain for days and it didn’t start to creep back until the next appointment. Going each week is key for me right now for the results I want.Each week I went, the pain would stay away longer and longer, it took 2 months to really be comfortable from pain on a long term basis. I sleep so well now. It creeps back now and then depending on my level of physical tasks but it will subside after rest. I was very impressed that before our first session Dr. Mahoney took x-rays of my back because of the rod I have so he could study my condition and we saw that I had so much spinal damage from wear and tear and having scoliosis. He told me what he could do to help me and there was hope for me being in less pain and not needing back surgery in the future. We look forward to going for our visits with smiling faces all around.Using chiropractic care is very beneficial along with simple stretching and healthy eating. It can stop chronic and acute symptoms and even reverse damage over time. My advice is to stay committed to Dr. Mahoney’s recommendations and getting adjusted. Both myself and my daughter Chloe have been seeing Dr. Mahoney for 2 months for different back issues and along with exercise and healthy living feel so much better pain wise. You don’t need an appointment and you feel very confident in his techniques and experience when treating different problems.

"Nothing Compares to this treatment!"
I have a long history of back pain, disc herniations/degeneration and physical restrictions. My activities were very limited at times and the recurring disc issues were becoming more frequent with age. I was losing time from work, sports and recreation. Before Dr. Mahoney’s DRX 9000 Disc Decompression Program, I had tried regular chiropractic adjustments and exercise.Since the DRX 9000 treatments, I have had tremendous improvements in decreased pain levels, increased flexibility, improved work, recreation and sleep ability, and exercise is improved. I am mostly confident that my back is stronger and not always like “walking on egg shells” waiting for a bad reaction to daily activities. Dr. Mahoney is extremely professional, concerned, informed and his staff is outstanding!

"I had my first day of basically no pain!"
I came to see Dr. Mahoney with severe back pain and nerve pain in my upper back. I had been living with this problem on and off for about 50 years, but it became much worse in the last year. I was unable to do many things and had to use ice, heat and strong pain medication all the time. I was unable to do my housework, painting, unable to sit and sew or work at the computer. Walking exercise and travel were also hindered due to pain. Before DRX 9000 spinal decompression I had tried physical therapy, acupuncture and regular chiropractic care. After my 6th DRX 9000 treatment I had my first day of basically no pain. I’m now able to work at the computer more than a few minutes. I am pleased you sent out the notice about the DRX 9000 as that is what made me make the appointment. Your personality is a real plus for your work.

“Even If You Feel Great, You May Prevent Aches Or Illness By Taking Care of Your Spine”
After spending an excessive amount of time weeding a large vegetable garden, I began to have chronic pain in my right hip and my right leg would go numb all the way to my toes. It was worse when driving and at night when I needed to sleep. I would have to get out of bed and pace around my house. I could sleep briefly in one specific position on my back. If I rolled to either side, my shoulders would ache within 5 minutes or less. When I couldn’t sleep well, I wasn’t able to pursue my business in the usual manner. Once under chiropractic care, I notice improvement right away. My leg hasn’t gone numb since the very first treatment. The pain in my hip was relieved and I began sleeping better. But then I fell back on the ice and hurt my neck which Dr. Mahoney fixed in a few visits! Continued treatment has completely improved an issue that I probably had for years and wasn’t aware of. It has and is worth every penny. Soon I’ll only need to come for maintenance visits. I feel like I did before I hurt myself last summer. In fact, I feel better! I’m doing yoga regularly and will walk regularly once the ice is gone. I sleep well and wake in comfort rather than in pain. I’m pursuing my business gain, helping in the local library and occasionally substituting at the school I used to work at. My energy level has increased, and I feel more focused. Don’t wait!!!! Yes. Read. Become informed and start treatment today. Even if you feel great, you may prevent aches or illness by taking care of your spine. The medical profession needs to acknowledge the huge value of good chiropractic care. It is painless and is so beneficial. “It is never too late to start. It’s always to late to wait.” Jeff Olson. Dr. Mahoney is one of my heroes. (along with my husband, my dad, and my yoga instructor). He is a polite, knowledgeable gentleman with a sincere desire to regain and maintain good health. I am forever grateful.

"He is Very Patient, Friendly and Caring"
I have had lower back pain with very sharp pain at times that would last for hours for years. I found it hard to sit or stand for any length of time. My lower back would ache at night while trying to sleep and would bother memost of the day. Before trying DRX 9000, I had tried physical therapy, acupuncture, hot and cold therapy, medicine, exercise. Since starting DRX 9000, my pain level is usually zero. I feel more flexible when I wake up in the mornings. My lower back is not nearly as stiff as it use to be and I rarely have any sharp pain like I used to. I stretch when I get up, then I am good to go. I would advise others with disc bulging or herniations to consider surgery only as your last option. Consult with Dr. Mahoney regarding your other options. Dr. Mahoney is patient, friendly, helpful and caring for his patients health. He is totally up front with his patients regarding their condition.

“Dr. Mahoney Is Wonderful”
Due to constant computer work and sitting for long; periods of time, I had back and neck (headaches) pain, bad posture and was very stiff. After one month of chiropractic care, I felt better but improvement was instant. I now have better energy and spirit. It really makes life more full and fine – enjoy that while you can! Dr. Mahoney is wonderful! Nice, talented, communicates well and is generous and supportive.

“I Am Pain Free Now”
I was having back problems for more than 16 years and had been uncomfortable. Chiropractic was my first attempt of treatment. I remember getting immediate relief and then there was a slow continuous improvement. I am pain free now. My back hasn’t gone out in 14 years. I’m able to do anything I want to do without worrying about my back. I have more energy because I’m not in pain. I feel free. We all need to take responsibility and take care of ourselves. Just do it. There’s no need for pain. Do it now and save yourself from possible surgery down the road. Maintain your health. Dr. Mahoney knows his stuff. I completely trust him and he’s an all around good person. And he’s great with kids!!!!!
-Beth L, Age 44 Waitsfield, VT Massage Therapist
I wanted to take the time to send along my sincere thanks for the chiropractic care I’ve been receiving at your office. Your knowledge, care and compassion is truly a blessing. Also, by combining the different modalities, including the DRX9000 and massage and acting as an advocate for each patient, you have truly made the experience life changing. After many years of dealing with severe chronic leg and back pain as a result of amputation and the use of a prosthesis, I’ve finally experienced a major reduction in pain thanks to your total plan for my health.Your friendly competent and caring staff has certainly added to this most positive experience. Please share my appreciation with them as well. God Bless.
“No More Headaches”!
For three months I was having severe pain in the back of my head, and my neck. It never went away, day after day. It was so severe if affected my vision, and my balance. I even had a hard time writing with a pen. I was sent to have an MRI of my brain in fear of an aneurysm, or possible tumor. I even had to meet with a cardiologist for a holter monitor when the pain spread to my chest and left shoulder. The MRI came back fine/normal and doctor’s couldn’t find out why I was having so much pain. As a result, I was losing time from work. After being under chiropractic care I had one day that I actually had no pain, but it soon returned the next day even worse. I decided to go to Dr. Mahoney’s office during the episode of pain I was having. As soon as he adjusted my neck, the pain was instantly gone! No more headache. It’s been two weeks now with no pain in the back of my head or neck. My whole attitude is better because I feel better. I’ve always been embarrassed about my “crooked head” – how it tilts to the left. It feels great to see an improvement. You don’t know how bad you’ve been feeling until you finally get adjusted. You’ll wonder why you waited so long. I just wish I could go more.
Thank you Dr. Mahoney

“I Can Now Do Almost Everything I Need To Do Without Pain”
I had lower back and leg pain for three years plus. As a result I was restricted from most activities such as skiing, yard work, lifting, sitting for long periods of time, driving/riding on long trips, etc. Also, I didn’t sleep well. I had lost time from work, sports and recreation. Before DRX 9000 spinal decompression I had tried physical therapy and chiropractic.

"Dr. Mahoney is very honest and up-front"
I had been suffering from severe back and leg pain for the last 2 years. I was unable to do all I wanted to do and get things done. I was unable to exercise or walk. Prior to DRX I had tried pain medication, epidurals, therapy exercises. Since being on DRX 9000 my pain level has decreased, I have more flexibility, I can get more things done, I can go for walks, I sleep better and can exercise again. I would tell anyone with chronic pain to try the DRX 9000 program. It has helped me dramatically and I'm very happy that I took the opportunity to participate in the program. I would like to say that Dr. Mahoney is very honest and up front in telling you if he might be able to help you or not and I feel he is the greatest.

“Dr. Sean Is On My List Of Good Guys”
I had headaches occurring in the evenings after working all day. After a nights rest the headaches disappeared only to return again at the end of the following day. I had no previous treatment for this problem although I had been treated for various other misalignments by another Dr. in New Jersey with great results. After being under chiropractic care I noticed improvement in a week or two and continued to improve with consistent correction. The headaches were completely gone in about 3 months. The treatment has restored my spine to its normal position as much as possible and improved my posture which allowed me to do the normal daily activities without feeling pain or discomfort. I would urge people to find out the theory behind chiropractic care. Secondly, seek out a chiropractor, even if you are not in pain and give this alternative to medicine a fair try. There is no doubt if you believe the theory and trust the doctor you will benefit by relieving the pain you are in now or preventing you from suffering in the future. Dr. Mahoney has become a part of my routine by reinforcing what I already knew. Aside from being a doctor, he has time to be a friend and takes the time and makes the effort to see what’s going on outside the doctor’s office. Dr. Sean is on my list of good guys!

“Dr. Mahoney Has Renewed My Faith In Chiropractors”
I had pain in my left leg and lower back and I wasn’t able to sit for any length of time. I was often depressed and discouraged. I had to go on with my daily life, but it was so hard. I wondered what’s wrong with me and will this pain ever end. Previous treatment included X-rays which showed nothing wrong. I also took pain reliever drugs but I couldn’t take medication forever. I went to physical therapy which helped somewhat. I had not lost any time from work because I just tried to forget the pain. I thought it was a part of my LIFE. On my first visit to Dr. Mahoney I was in PAIN. Now my pain is totally gone in my leg and I can sit and stand without pain. I only have lower back pain when I overdo. I know who to see if and when it does Dr. Mahoney! I have more energy than I ever thought was possible. I can exercise without all those nagging aches and pains. Pain should not be a normal part of every day life. My advice to others not presently under Chiropractic care….What are you waiting for?
I had a bad experience with another chiropractic doctor about three years ago. I vowed I’d never seek help from another chiropractor again. My husband and all my pain finally convinced me to see Dr. Mahoney. So what did I have to lose? I was so scared before the first adjustment. Dr. Mahoney has renewed my faith in Chiropractors – there are good ones and bad ones – and Dr. Mahoney is definitely the BEST!!

"I Believe It keeps Me Healthy"
My health problems first began in the Spring of 2005. My thumb would dislocate often. I went to the ER during one bad dislocation and they had no real answers. I also tried acupuncture for it. After my 1st visit I saw immediate improvement. I no longer have dislocations. I believe Chiropractic care keeps me healthy. I encourage people with a variety of problems to call Dr. Sean. He is professional, personable, and makes me feel great!
"I Believe Chiropractic Care Is An Essential Element of Complete Health"
I did not have any consistent problems -- but occasionally, my lower back "locks" up and I also endured a serious concussion 10 years ago. After seeing Dr. Mahoney for the first adjustment, I felt a huge change for the better. I feel as if I can move better. Headaches are now few and far between. Best of all, I feel better because I know I'm taking care of myself! I believe Chiropractic care is an essential element of complete health. If you have been hesitant or are skeptical -- try it! Dr. Mahoney is not your run-of the mill doctor. He is kind, gentle and concerned. He feels it's important for me to understand my diagnosis, my treatment, and cares about my overall well being.
"Great personality, miracle worker!"
I had been experiencing lower back pain for over 39 years. My daily life activities were very limited and in addition I would lose time from work. Since starting the DRX 9000 spinal decompression my back is almost normal. Dr. Mahoney has a great personality, is a miracle worker and very caring.

"I am committed to Chiropractic healing"
My health problems first began to appear in response to stress during my husband's long illness. I first stopped in to Dr. Mahoney's office with flu like symptoms. I had never tried this for an illness before. Within 24 hours of being adjusted I felt like new. It was so much better than all of those over the counter medications to treat the symptoms and I did not have to miss any work. Regular visits to Dr.Mahoney's office have kept me in shape for caring for horses during the long winter. I am committed to chiropractic healing before the old traditional ways. I believe that my body can heal itself if aligned properly.

"Thanks for the pain free back"
Since an accident in 2006, my lower back would lock up and I was in a lot of pain. I couldn't do a lot of things with my kids and had a difficult time working. As a result I lost time from work, sports, and recreation. After completing DRX 9000 my pain level is minimal. I am more flexible and starting to work out again. I would tell other people with disc herniation to give the DRX a try, you'll feel a major difference. Thanks for the more pain free back !
-Thomas C. - Age 37, Truck Driver
"Dr. Mahoney really cares about people"
My health problems first appeared at the age of 18 after my first car accident. Since then I have been in a total of 5 car accidents. My first adjustment I felt like the blood rushed to my head and someone stopped my back ribs from overlapping! Because I was in 5 accidents and two back braces, drugs, physical therapy and waited so many years before I began chiropractic care, it did take a while, like a few months. Now I realize if I want to feel good and stay at my maximum I need to be adjusted on a regular basis. I've found something that works and keeps me living a normal life again. Dr. Mahoney gives so much to his patients. He really cares about people. He's just the best. Thanks to his care I have a life again!!
