“I’ve been having lower back pain for months with no relief. Right away from my first visit with Capital Chiropractic helped SO much. I love this method of treatment and care.” – Female, age 27
I was a bit hesitant to go to a chiropractor because my previous experience seeing one seemed like it would be a never-ending opportunity for the chiropractor to make money off of me. Dr. LoRang is not like that, not at all. His goal was to see if he could help me and if he couldn’t, refer me to someone else. His approach was unique (to me, at least) in that he didn’t immediately rush to give me an adjustment. Instead he talked to me about my symptoms, asked a lot of questions, and after a lot of consult, recommended some exercises to alleviate my symptoms. His office is nice, his patient care assistant Jen is wonderful, as is Dr. LoRang. Going to Capital Chiropractic was a very positive and helpful experience!

I had been experiencing numbness and tingling in my extremities since November. My M.D. had performed test after test, ran blood work, ordered an MRI, and nothing showed up. After literally tens of thousands of dollars spent, and at the suggestion of a friend, I decided to give Dr. LoRang a try. I wasn’t a huge fan of chiropractic manipulation but what did I have to lose? I loved that Chris requested my MRI records, and actually called my doctors office to speak directly with them. He assessed me and started on a course of action without manipulation as he knew I wasn’t a fan. Through at exercise in office and at home, I started to see relief. After the third visit I decided to try some manipulation and WOW what a difference. I now only occasionally have tingling in my fingers and that continues to fade. I have not had tingling in my legs for at least a month. I cannot express how grateful I am to Chris and Jen for encouraging me and assisting me in my journey to healthy living! Thank you both!!

I had chronic back pain for over a year – I had tried several other good chiropractors and a pain clinic. I had no real improvement and I had resigned myself to living with the pain and tried my best to ignore it. A friend recommended the technique practiced by Dr. LoRang and I decided that I’d give it a chance, but had little hope. Happily I have experienced SIGNIFICANT improvement under Dr. LoRang and I have hope that I can live 100% pain-free very soon. Dr. LoRang takes the time to listen and works with you to address immediate concerns and also guide you to better long term habits. His staff is great and the office is easy to get to. I would highly recommend Capital Chiropractic!

I can’t say enough good things about Capital Chiro! I’ve been going there for the last six months for a shoulder injury and am now largely pain free! Chris does a great job of not only making adjustments, but also explaining what the problem is and how to correct it. I recommend Chris and Jen to almost all of my athletes/clients when they need chiropractic care!
