My lower back problem effected my daily activities drastically. I could hardly do anything anymore, I couldn't walk, sit, or stand for more that ten minutes. I was very concerned that my problem was getting worse and I had terrible pain in my back and leg twenty-four hours a day, I could not sleep and was up and down all night. I was told I would have to live with this problem because I had already had surgery that didn't work. I didn't want to be on pain pills for the rest of my life, so I had been suffering like this for seven years.
My brother was the one who convinced me to see Dr. Huber. He told me it would take away the pain and it did, thank God! He had seen Dr. Huber prior and had good results.
My experience with Dr. Huber's office has been great, everything about my treatment was wonderful, I feel like a new person, no pain. Now I can walk, sit and stand again. I am so glad I came to Dr. Huber's office because I have a new life again, I can travel now where before I was confined to my home.
If you are having back problems I would say have the treatment as soon as possible.
The thing I liked most about Dr. Huber's office is now I feel like a new person, and am very happy and feel so good! The office is great all around both doctor and staff.

Hi Dr. Huber,
I called your office today and talked to Juanita to relay a "wonderful--NEWS".
Our mom (AURORA GUIAO)for the first time has slept good (snoring and all:-D).... and she told us that she has noticed the difference since Monday. For the first time in a very very long long time she only took 1 (one) pain pill!!! At her recent evaluation, she was telling you that the pain comes and go....i remembered way back that the pain has always been there 24 /7. Now I heard her telling you it comes and go...that is EXCELLENT!
THANK GOD...that is a MIRACLE with your HELP...and treatment at your office.
I just knew that when I saw her standing straight and walking faster .....I started praising the Lord-I knew that it is just a matter of time and something will break through.
Suddenly she now wants to go shopping!! she never said that in a long time either. that is very good sign and I even emailed my brother in Hongkong and sister in Michigan.
We thank you for being so nice, gentle and understanding to our mother.
She is turning 84 on 8/26th.
Sometimes she is not good in remembering things and she gets very emotional.
She now looks forward getting ready and going to her treatment.....THANK YOU so much...you are an answer to our prayers. KEEP up the GREAT WORK DOC!!

I was in a motorcycle accident on February 15, 2004. I suffered rib fractures, a fractured clavicle and neck injuries. I healed from my fractures, but the pain from my neck injury continued. I could barely turn my head without experiencing sharp pain and headaches. When driving, I would have to brace myself for the pain when I had to turn my head. My orthopedic physician had suggested medication. I refused to be on medication to manage the pain and discomfort. I knew there had to be a better way. He then prescribed physical therapy. I went to physical therapy twice per week for almost 3 months. The physical therapist had tried different therapeutic approaches, but I still experienced the pain and the headaches.
My physician then suggested medication again. By this time I was ready to try anything. The pain and headaches were taking its toll on my entire well-being. I was referred to a pain management physician. I went for consultation and the physician explained the procedure he would be performing. He explained that he would place injections between the discs in my neck. Following the consultation, he explained that he would get back to me with my appointment date to have the procedure done. I felt very uneasy about the possibility of injections in my neck and also being dependent upon medication for relief. The procedure would need to be repeated over time.
During one of my final visits to my physical therapist, I explained to her that I was uneasy about the thought of neck injections. She then asked me if I had considered chiropractic care. I explained that I had chiropractic care in the past, but I was trying to listen to my orthopedic doctor's suggestions. She explained that she herself has chiropractic treatment. I took her suggestion and made an appointment with Dr. Huber. I was a patient of Dr. Huber before the accident.
After 3 months of gentle adjustments and electrical muscle stimulation by Dr. Huber, I am feeling much better. In fact. I am feeling better than I have felt in a very long time. I still have neck discomfort, but it has improved tremendously. I am able to turn my head without having to brace myself for the sharp pain that I experienced before. If I have had a long stressful day at work, I still have a headache but it is minor compared to what I had experienced before. I am so pleased that I have relief without being dependent on medication. I knew there was a better way to manage my pain. I am confident that with continued treatment by Dr. Huber, I will continue to improve.
I love to garden. This past spring and summer I was unable to do any gardening which really made me depressed. I couldn't reach or stretch without pain. I am really looking forward to this spring. I will be able to continue with my love of gardening. I am able to do most of the things I enjoyed before the accident. Some things do give me some discomfort, but the discomfort is minor compared to the way I felt before being treated by Dr. Huber. And the best part is that I don't have to take medication to experience this level of well-being.

I have had chronic pain for the past 10 years in my left hip, leg and groin area. I have been in multiple car accidents with partial benefit from the medical side of medicine. I have been given pain medication, multiple tests, rehab and classes to decrease stress. Specialists have been unable to find why I have the pain. The doctors have prescribed pain relievers to cover up the pain but my goal is to be pain free without medication. I have been with Dr. Huber for many many years. He has performed spinal manipulations. Recently he introduced me to a new treatment called Cold Laser Therapy. I really did not think this would work any better than any other tests and procedures I had done in the past. On Monday I had the procedure done and to my great amazement on Friday I was still pain free in the area that the procedure was performed. I would love to continue with the laser treatment combine with my chiropractic adjustments.
June Sorensen-Stockton, CA
I had severe lower back pain from L2-S 1 and 3 herniated discs due to an injury. I went to Kaiser and the doctors there only prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxers. I was referred to Dr. Huber by a mutual friend Chuck Peet. Dr. Huber helped me to get my pelvic adjusted which helped my legs and lower back as best as possible. I feel if wasn't for Dr. Huber, I'd be in bed in traction! Over the last 2 1/2 years. Dr. Huber has helped keep my condition in check. Just recently I have started a cold laser therapy treatment that I believe is just fabulous for the pain and spasms!
Les Evans-Stockton, CA
I've had carpal tunnel symptoms for a few years. I received chiropractic care from Dr. Huber and that gave me some relief. Dr. Huber adjusted my wrist and one day the pain was extremely strong. He performed the laser treatment on my wrist. 30 minutes later I was amazed that the pain was gone! By using the laser treatment, I feel that I have improved about 60% and will love to continue with my treatment for better results.
Juanita Lopez-Stockton, CA
I had very bad lower back pain for many years. I tried acupuncture, medication, ointments and now chiropractic. One day I was reading the newspaper and there was one of Dr. Huber's low back pain ads, so I decided to give it a try. Dr. Huber performed 12 chiropractic treatments and therapy. I feel that I have improved about 90% and I'm able to golf again!
Louis Bayers-Stockton, CA
I was having lower back pain. I had acupuncture therapy and surgery. Now I'm seeing Dr. Huber as my chiropractor. I'm getting massage therapy, adjustments and electrical stimulation at his office. I love to read and walk and I can do that more often with less discomfort.
Lysle Tumbeaugh-Stockton, CA
I had lower back and hip pain. I never did anything to prevent the pain. One of my friends referred me to Dr. Huber. With regular adjustments I can now restore old trucks like I use to. I'm in less pain!
Lamont Harris-Stockton, CA
Before having spinal decompression therapy I was unable to take care of myself. My husband even had to take a leave of absence from work to care for me and our children. I was forced to use a walker to walk even one step. I was stuck lying in bed all day long, which became a very depressing way to live. I tried every form of pain medication, and even had three epidural injections. Nothing was relieving my pain. All of the doctors I saw were recommending I have back surgery. That to me was out of the question.
Thanks to spinal decompression therapy and the help of Dr. Huber and his staff I am 95% pain free. I did not have to have surgery and the pain medication I take is not very often. I am living proof that decompression therapy works.
If you are having any kind of back pain I would recommend decompression therapy, and there is no better place to have it that Dr. Huber's office. In my experience, I have found Dr. Huber to be one of the most caring and compassionate people that I have ever had the honor to meet.
He will do anything and everything in his power to relieve your pain. I also really enjoy his staff, everyone is very nice and they make you feel like part of a family.
Before I decided to try decompression therapy I would spend most of my day at Doctors offices. I saw pain specialists, a neurologist, and a neurosurgeon. I spent countless nights at the emergency room screaming in pain. Come to find out, I had a degenerative disc and a herniated disc that had broke causing me to have a pinched nerve. It hurt so badly to sit, stand or walk or even lay down. I'm so glad this is all over and I can go on with my life and career. I just told Dr. Huber that I was going to go back to work because I'm feeling so good.
Corinne Lujan, Stockton, CA
I had injured myself by falling out of a truck and landing on my back. It caused severe low back pain with pain down my leg to the foot. The pain was constant and limited me in my ability to work, walk for any distance and even to eat, as it was hard to sit for long periods of time. The pain was so severe that I had to have an MRI on my back. The results were a degenerated disc with a disc bulge that was pressing on the nerve down my leg. My girlfriend who is a patient of Dr. Huber's told me about his Spinalaid office and I made an appointment to see if I was someone who could be helped with this procedure. I had a consultation with Dr. Huber and he reviewed my MRI with me and told me I was a good candidate for decompression therapy. I decided to undergo the procedure as surgery was not an option for me. I have my own business and could not be away from work for long periods of time. The treatment was a total success for me. I am able to have a normal life again and am working full time with no restrictions. Also I'm able to ride my Harley again which was impossible before the decompression treatment. I'm very happy I came to Dr. Huber's office and learned about decompression therapy. Everyone at his office is friendly and caring, and I also made some new friends. If you or someone in your family is suffering from low back pain or leg pain I would recommend you make an appointment to see if you can be helped with decompression therapy. You'll be glad you did!
Frank Perry, Stockton, CA
Before using spinal decompression at Dr. Huber's Spinal aid office I had lost feeling in both of my legs. I was told by a surgeon that I would have to use a walker. I was also told by various doctors that I was going to need back surgery to correct my back issues. They were going to enlarge the nerve openings on both the left and right side of my spine and then fuse two vertebrae in my lower back. To me this was not an option.
I began looking for other options and other forms of less invasive measures of care on the internet. I came across websites that discussed decompression therapy. The more I studied and researched, the better it looked. I did a search for local doctors that utilized decompression therapy and went to three different offices and talked to the doctors. Dr. Huber's Spinal Aid office became a no brainer.
Spinal decompression therapy has been the best thing I've done for my back in years. I no longer have pain in my back and have feeling in both legs.
I've have since ditched the cane! I no longer need the handicap plaque for my car. I have full use and feeling in my legs. Spinal decompression therapy may not be for everyone. But I think that anyone that has chronic lower back issues that have been told they need surgery should first look into decompression therapy. It worked for me. Ron Gregory - Stockton, CA
I had back pain so bad I had to stop and lay down and elevate my feet to relieve the pressure on my back. I couldn't walk for any distance without low back pain. I was concerned because my problem was getting worse over time and I was told I would have to live with this pain. I was becoming tired of being restricted in my activities and my Dr. Michael Zumstein, D.C. recommended that I look into Spinal Decompression therapy for my chronic Back Pain. He referred me to Dr. Huber's office and I had a consultation to determine if I could be helped with Decompression therapy. My experience in Dr. Huber's office has been wonderful, the staff is very good to me and I feel so good after my treatment. The biggest difference for me in the care I received at Dr. Huber's office is there is no pain pills and no surgery. If you are having a similar problem I would say to you, Go for it!
Barbara Smith - Stockton, CA
Before I started my spinal decompression therapy my walking was becoming more and more limited. I began to develop tingling in my legs due to the stenosis in my lumbar spine. As the pain progressed it became difficult to dress myself. I had seen four different doctors who suggested therapy, pain medication and also surgery. Since those options were unacceptable to me, I sought alternative forms of treatment. After learning about Spinalaid centers of America, I called and requested additional information about decompression therapy. An appointment was made for me with Dr. Huber in Stockton for an evaluation to determine if my condition qualified for spinal decompression therapy. Following the evaluation Dr. Huber thought I would be a good candidate for the treatment and I began my course of the treatments. I am no longer in pain and am able to live a normal life, the decompression treatments were a success! Dr. Huber and his office staff were very informative, friendly and efficient. I have referred the treatment and this office team to many people.
"My back pain was so severe that it was limiting me form putting on my shoes, getting dressed, bending over or doing any kind of yard work. It was having a very negative effect on me, especially my attitude. I was always tired and very uncomfortable. My problem was absolutely getting worse and I was ready to throw in the towel which I never wanted to do. I was told that I was going to have to live with this problem using medication and possibly surgery. The factors that led me to seek care were the extreme pain and the inability to live a normal life. My experience at Dr. Huber's office has been very pleasant. I have never been comfortable in doctor's offices, but the staff staff is awesome and I actually look forward to going!
I would highly recommend decompression therapy to anyone suffering from severe and chronic low back pain. I feel like I have my life back in control. Almost immediately I felt relief and now am almost completely pain free and it feels great! The biggest difference between Dr. Huber's treatment and other treatments is you don't have to deal with cortisone shots that are only temporary relief, and you don't deal with painful treatments. It is truly a great experience."
I was suffering from back pain due to lower bulging discs in my back which had stopped me from doing many of my daily activities. I have almost completed the spinal aid program and am almost completely pain free. My daily activity was greatly compromised due to the back pain. I could no longer garden, play golf or lift anything of any weight. When my doctor restricted my golf playing and gave me pain pills, I decided it was time to get serious about a remedy for the back pain. A friend saw the ad in the newspaper and told me about the procedure. I immediately did some research and decided this was the best alternative for me. I had tried many different forms of treatment including chiropractic, NSAID medications, acupuncture and exercise; but this is the first and only one that has stopped the pain. I'm very much looking forward to returning to the many outdoor activities, especially golf. I would also like to compliment all of the employees working for Dr. Huber. They are very professional and pleasant to be around. I will miss them now that my treatments are over. When someone asks " hows your back?" I am a walking testimonial about this procedure. I would recommend it to anyone with compromising back pain. The procedure is painless and, most importantly, non-surgical."
William "Monty" Montgomery
"I was having much lower back pain and was finding it hard to walk. Even for short distances I would have to stop and rest before continuing. I noticed some advertising about decompression therapy and felt it may help my arthritic back. I have been pleased with the results. My back pain has been reduced and I can walk greater distances with more comfort. Dr. Huber and his assistants are all very helpful and I had a great experience and would recommend this for anyone having back pain."
I had severe back pain for about 2 years until I had Spinal Decompression. Before the procedure, I had to take pain medication daily to function. There were many days that the pain medications did not help. I missed out on a lot of social activities due to pain. Surgery was recommended by my neurologist, but I was not mentally ready. I am so glad I did not do it. Since I completed my Spinal Decompression therapy- I AM PAIN FREE! I am bowling again and doing all the activities I enjoy. Many people ask me how am I doing and if I would do it again. My answer is "Great and Absolutely!" Dr. Huber and his staff are the best!!!!
Sandy Rutledge-Stockton, CA
I was involved in an automobile accident and as a result of that I was diagnosed with a herniated disc in my lower back. A neurologist recommended surgery soon or the problem would continue to get worse as the years went by. Surgery was not an option for me. I continued to take pain medication and have chiropractic treatment. There were days the pain was there all the time. My life style changed so much, I could not play with my grandchildren, go grocery shopping, walking, cooking, and even trying to rest was painful. I found out about spinal decompression therapy from the office of Dr. Huber and I started my therapy right away. I felt the difference in my pain level the first week of treatment, now I can do my usual activities. I am very happy that I did the spinal decompression therapy. I would recommend spinal decompression to anyone that has lower back pain. Thank you Dr. Huber and your lovely staff for making me feel at home every time I was in your office.
Micaela Ruiz-Stockton, CA
For several years I have suffered from lower back pain. It interfered with my doing housework, my job and even driving. There were certain social activities I could not participate in. When my problem was at its worse, I would have to stay in bed with an ice pack for several hours. I was very concerned that If I did not do anything about it, my problem would get worse. I have had chiropractic treatment and spinal decompression therapy and I noticed a huge improvement. I know that if I had not been treated I would be on permanent disability. Spinal decompression therapy brought me back to normal life again. Dr. Huber and his staff really care about my health. I truly recommend spinal decompression therapy and chiropractic care, it is the best for back problems.
Peggy Dills-Stockton, CA
"When my back was at its worst I could not bend forward or lift anything over five pounds. At times I couldn't pick up my legs to put on my shoes. I lost the ability to run, play soccer or do anything with extreme activity. All of which I have been doing my whole life. My medical doctor prescribed vicoden and muscle relaxers to ease the pain. I was told to deal with the pain the rest of my life unless I wanted to try surgery which was not an option for me. I met Dr. Huber where I worked and he could tell by the way I walked I had a back problem. He let me know about spinal decompression therapy and gave me information to research and feel comfortable about the program. My everyday activity has improved 100% I still experience discomfort when I overdo it but my recovery time is ten times faster. The staff here is very friendly and helpful and I would recommend spinal decompression for anyone who is a candidate. I am grateful it worked for me."
When I started my treatment with Spinal Aid Centers of America at the office of Dr. Huber I was not able to walk very far and I could not do my grocery shopping without pain. My problem is that it was worse and I could not do my usual daily activities including chores or any walking. I was concerned about my problem getting worse and I was told that I was a surgical candidate and required surgery. The factors that lead me to seek care was the increasing pain that I was experiencing. My experience at the offices of Dr. Huber has been great. Everyone has been so nice and helpful. I have never had to wait for my appointment. I am glad. I came to this office because I feel so much better. The best thing I like about Dr. Huber is the staff. Everybody is very nice and friendly and they have helped me a lot. The biggest differences about Dr. Huber and his staff from other treatment options was that I seemed to be just a name to the other offices. This treatment program has caused me very little pain and I have needed no injections or surgeries. I would recommend this treatment program to anyone with this type of chronic low back pain.
Marian Berdan-Lodi, CA
Before I started my spinal decompression program with Dr. Huber I was having increasing difficulty with walking and was becoming very limited and painful. This problem was making me feel very old and immobile. I was very concerned that my problem was getting worse. I was told that I could have surgery for my low back pain but that the surgery may not ease my pain. The main factors that lead me to seek care was the increasing pain that I was experiencing and the lack of mobility. I saw the ad for Spinal Aid Centers of America in the Stockton Record newspaper and I felt I needed to investigate an option that might help me and give me some relief. Since I started care with Dr. Huber I began getting some pain relief almost right away. The plan that Dr. Huber made for my treatment is working and what I like most about coming to this office is the friendly staff and their efficiency. The biggest difference that I have noticed about this office is that the treatments have been helping me in decreasing in my pain and allowing me to walk better. I would encourage other people with similar problems to investigate this procedure and get started with these treatments.
Dorothy Brodehl-Lockeford, CA
While reading the paper, I saw the ad for Dr. Huber about a new procedure for low back pain sufferers called Spinal Decompression therapy. I spoke with my son about it and he suggested that I should give it a try. Due to lower back pain I could not do much of anything especially standing, sitting for long time, riding on long trips, and shopping. I was concerned my problem was getting worse and I did not want to live on drugs for the rest of my life. Surgery was not an option. Ever since I started my decompression therapy my experience has been great, I have had relief and Dr. Huber explained everything to me very well. I am glad I came to this office because my condition is better and every one has been very pleasant. I would definitely recommend the Spinal Decompression therapy to anyone "It helps"! Thank you Dr. Huber and staff for being so friendly and helpful!

15 years ago playing basketball I fractured a bone in my left foot tearing all the ligaments on the side of my ankle. Over time the pain and arthritis have increased. Sometimes is very difficult to walk. I keep it adjusted weekly but that was all I had to help. Since getting the cold laser in the office, I have had 6 treatments to the ankle and have noted marked improvement. I can walk normally and continue to ride a bike and exercise again. This has been the best modality for my condition I have found in the past 20 years as a treating chiropractor.
