"What can I say, Dr. Dean saved my skin! I was out of options facing having to go back to the mainland for treatment on my back, I had tickets bought and thought I'd try Dr. Dean as a last-ditch effort. I was not looking for to another round of surgeries, pain management, and all the medications and problems that come with that course of action. To be honest I didn't think that he would be able to do much for me, I had a bulging discs in my C4, L4, L5, and S1. I have a chronic fracture in my L5 as well, and a new fracture in my L4. All this is exasperated by Arthritic Autoimmune Symptoms. Immediately with the first treatment there was a substantial release of pain, and range of motion.
Through 3 weeks of treatment I am not only completely out of the woods on having to go back to the mainland for surgery, but I am back on the bike putting in the miles, as well as returning to functionality with my daily regiment. I would recommend Dr. Dean to anyone."
"Dr. Shivvers took additional time to learn about my back injury and then carefully applied that information during my adjustments. Rather than relying on adjustment-only treatments, he guided me to informational sites that demonstrated useful strengthening exercises. That is just one example of the holistic approach he takes.
If you have an acute injury like I do, you can trust that he is skilled enough to avoid further injury, and firm enough to provide a complete adjustment. The treatments were so helpful that I signed up for a treatment package that allowed me to be seen twice a week at a significantly reduced rate of service. Even with a busy and unpredictable schedule, Caitlyn has always made sure I was seen by Dr. Shivvers. I highly recommend Turning Point Chiropractic."
"I had terrible Sciatica pain for four years in college while playing soccer. The athletic trainers tried a lot of different things to help relieve the pain but nothing worked. They resorted to stretching my hamstrings as treatment. Needless to say this did not work and the pain continued. Finally, after six years of this annoying and agonizing pain, I went to see Dr. Dean at Turning Point Chiropratic. I couldn't believe the results just after one appointment. I had full mobility and was able to do everything pain free. I continued to go regularly for a couple weeks to get my body in correct alignment. I can now get back to surfing and playing soccer, pain free. I am forever grateful for the work Dr. Dean did and I recommend his office to anyone I meet that is struggling with similar pain or is in the market for an excellent Chiropractor. Thanks Dr. Dean!"
"I decided to check this out when I saw the Groupon add. It was well worth it. Dr. Dean was great. I carry a lot of tension in my upper back, neck and shoulders and as a result have poor posture. I was able to feel so much more movement in my shoulders after the adjustments. Dr. Dean also showed me some breathing exercises that would help to improve my posture. On my second visit, the adjustments of course felt great and this time he suggested that I try KT tape. He basically made an "x" with the tape across my shoulder blades (you may have seen professional volleyball players wearing this). As I would slip back into poor posture, I would feel the tape pulling and straighten up again. The massage felt incredible too. Very relaxing and he was able to loosen some of the knots on my left side.
Overall I had a great experience at Turning Point, I am very happy to have them just down the street!"
"My back started hurting, and restricted movement increasing in intensity daily as I worked on Oahu far from my California Home. I was in severe pain and had no choice but to keep working to send money home. Finally on a day off I was able to visit Dr Dean @ Turning Point Chiropractic in Haleiwa, HI. He was able to diagnose the cause of my pain and restricted movement. He knew what adjustments were needed and began adjusting my back that day. I came back for adjustments every other day. From the first adjustment my pain level was cut in half until finally gone Within the first week. I am now feeling great. Thanks Dr Dean!! Turning Point Chiropractic is definitely a place you can trust."
"Choosing to seek out treatment at Turning point chiropractic is by far one of the best decisions I have ever made for my health. Even though this was my first visit to a chiropractor, Dr. Dean and Caitlyn made the entire experience simple and comfortable. Every part of my treatment plan was explained to me, from what was being done to why it needed to be done. My shoulders, neck, and back feel better than they have in about 20 years!! I highly recommend their family friendly practice to anyone that is seeking a holistic approach to their healthcare!"
"Dr. Dean has been great. I had been to 3 other chiropractors since moving to Hawaii, before I found Dr. Dean, and he has been the best. I have been dealing with lower back issues for months now, and since finding Dr. Dean, he has been able to help me to eliminate the pain and get back to be able to be active in sports again. He really took an interest in my symptoms and developed a care-plan around them and has continued to be great throughout the process of getting back to the point that I can enjoy doing things again. I would recommend him to any person in need of chiropractic care."
"Dr Dean is one of the best chiropractors I have gone too. Not only does he believe in manipulation a of the spine but also in fueling your body with correct nutrition. I have followed his advice and changed my diet and the symptoms that were plaguing me are not there anymore. No more daily migraines, body aches and pain. And the plus side of the elimination diet is I've lost 10 pounds by giving my body live nutrition. His prices are economical in my opinion for being free of pain. 50 bucks a visit and if your military you get 10% off. I have recommended him to all of my friends. Dr Dean also works on children. My son has minor scoliosis and it's improving as he attends. No more headaches for him as well and he says he sleeps better. So if your searching for a great Chiropractor and staff this is it. They also offer therapeutic massages and acupuncture. Bottom line is if your in pain and the Dr keep pushing meds on you to bandaid the situation come and see Dr Dean to really fix the problem, not just the symptoms."
"I broke my back in January 2014. I couldn't stand, walk, sit or drive. I was literally crawling in pain. I didn't know what had really happened to my back and ended up going to the ER - but they didn't tell me very much about why I was in so much pain, and then they only gave me a bunch of painkillers and sent me home.
I found Turning Point Chiropractic online and was afraid to try it without any other reference but I am so grateful that I went in. First of all their office is at a great location & Caitlyn (the receptionist) made it so easy for me to use my insurance for payment. There was no hassle or confusion. Caitlyn & Dr. Dean are the kindest people to work with.
THEN when I went in to see Dr. Dean he fully explained how I had injured myself (I fell asleep during a long plane ride and shifted my sacrum out of place). Knowing what was going on with my body and how I would be able to fix it was such a relief!! And instead of having to continue taking nasty painkillers, I knew I had a way out of pain and into health again. Dr. Dean created a treatment program for me which included exercises I would do on my own. The best part was that he is so good at explaining chiropractic care and how to achieve the alignment I needed to return to healthy functioning. The next best part was that it is affordable for me.
I had to take a couple weeks off of work (I work in an office, which can be painful when having lower back problems). But now I'm back, I know how to take care of my back so I don't hurt myself again and I continue to see Dr. Dean so that I can fully recover and never have this problem again. It was an immobilizing and terrifying experience but thank god I found Turning Point because they really helped me out... they turned it all around ;)"
"I came to see Dr. Dean at Turning Point as a part of a comprehensive approach to rehab a reoccurring shoulder injury. Additionally, I'm in the military and an avid Crossfitter. So, a healthy back and shoulders is essential for carrying a heavy ruck sack and overhead squats. Through multiple adjustments, Dr. Dean was able to help significantly improve my thoracic mobility and take pressure off the posterior parts of my shoulders. Now my shoulder has improved, I'm back to working on overhead squats, my posture is better while I surf, and I even have been able to start yoga. Whether you sit at a desk all day or you are a serious athlete, everyone can greatly benefit from routine spinal adjustments to improve their situation. Thanks Dr. Dean!"
