What Patients are Saying About Dr. Mark W. Cafagna

  • I most highly recommend going to Dr. Mark. Dr. Mark and his team are excellent in restoring and maintaining one's health. About 4 years ago I woke up and was barely able to get out of bed. I had a severe sciatica episode. Extreme pain from lower back down to my toes. Up to that time, I had been fairly active, regularly exercising and playing golf a couple of times a week. I was convinced that I would no longer be able to return to these activities or even walk around the block. Dr. Mark combined his experienced chiropractic skill along with decompression, EMS, massage and ultrasound therapy. After several weeks of treatment I was back to normal. Although I was reluctant to take on my old activities, Dr. Mark encouraged me to start a walking regimen along with other exercise. Since then I see Dr. Mark on a regular basis, have lost 20-25 pounds, my stress level has been significantly reduced, am in better overall physical shape than when I was much younger, and I look forward to physical activities. Also, when you come to Dr. Mark's office you are treated not just as a patient with an immediate physical problem, but you are greeted by a staff interested in your overall well being.

  • Dear Dr. Mark, Hope all is well, here is my testimony: I was in a rear in collision September 25th, 2013 and at the time I had no faith to ever recovering. Most people typically just go to a chiropractor as a treatment to get better and walk out leaving without a different mindset but instead as just another medical treatment. For me it was different, I remember taking health class in college and hearing negative things about chiropractic work. I had the opportunity to be treated by Dr. Mark’s team. I went in beaten up pretty bad, problems with my neck and spine, a depressed college student tired of feeling like a vegetable, and with the fear of being in a car to in a time period of about 4-5 months I become a better, positive person. To this day my neck and shoulders feel great I no longer have as much pain as before and I am to complete tasks without feeling any pain. I always looked forward to coming, I felt welcomed as if slowly but surely the light at the end of the tunnel came closer and closer. I became depressed thinking I would not accomplish my goal of becoming a police officer, but thanks to Dr. Mark’s team I learned that anything is possible with a positive mindset and faith in God. Dr. Mark’s team became my second family, thanks to their endless support and faith I was able to overcome this tragedy. Whoever says that chiropractic practice does not work obviously has not given the opportunity to try something new for a better tomorrow. Your body will thank you! =)

  • Dear Dr. Mark, Thank you for everything you have done to help me get back into wrestling. Before I went to your office and getting my neck work on, I could barely move it and physical therapy didn't help at all. After my first visit at your office I could move my neck a lot farther than I could after physical therapy. I know that you receive a lot of thanks but I wanted you to know that I am truly grateful. You got me back to100% in 5 visits and as a result I am able to wrestle my senior year without pain. Thank you, I am so happy that I could return to sports.

  • Hello, my name is Daniel Driussi and I was a patient with Dr. Mark and I can recommend this clinic to everyone I meet. The staff was always friendly, knowledgeable and always made me feel welcome. The procedures they did for the chronic pain in my back helped very much! As a veteran I was able to use the VA to receive some treatment from Dr. Mark, and I will go back to Dr. Mark’s office in a heartbeat as soon as the VA approves more visits to him! To Dr. Mark and his staff my back and I thank you all deeply and hope to see you all soon in the future.

  • A couple of months ago I was hit in my car by a drunk driver doing 70 miles per hour. I sustained numerous injuries including a sprained left ankle, sprained left wrist, sciatic nerve pain and a severely bruised sternum. I could hardly get out of get and had to hold onto the wall to walk down the hallway of my mobile home. After two months of chiropractic care from Dr.Mark and his wonderful staff, Natalie and Pam, I am now completly recovered. Thank you Dr.Mark and your "magic hands" for healing me!

  • I was referred to Dr. Mark by a friend after recent back trauma. I never thought that I could be in so much pain when I first visited his office, and at 34 I learned that: #1 I can’t skateboard as well as I used to, #2 chiropractic treatment really works. After my little spill I laid in bed unable to move for the first couple of days, and after a few treatments I was able to walk again. Each time I visited I felt better right after. The staff could not have been friendlier and I would highly recommend visiting his office. Thanks for getting me back on my feet again!

  • When i decided to go to Dr. Mark it was with fear and trembling as my previous experience with a Chiropractor was not very good. I soon was put at ease with what was explained to me and the techniques that were used. The Spinal Decompression treatment made a big difference in relieving my pain. I am so pleased i didn't have to go on pain pills for the rest of my life. Thanks Dr. Mark, Pam and Vanessa for always caring for me in such a pleasant and professional manner.

  • I wanted to thank you all for the excellent care you provided mein the days leading up to my backpacking trip to the Olympic National Park.The trip was great and my back and sciatic nerve held up great during my46-mile trek spanning 6 days over lots of varied terrain. My legs are a little sore from fatigue, but my back feels great.

  • A friend of mine saw my frequent posts on facebook about my migraines. She told me that Dr. Mark had helped her with her headaches, so I decided to go in and see him. After about 3 weeks of treatments, my headaches were starting to get less severe and less frequent. I hardly ever get any now after several months of chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Mark along with the "Stim", massage, and ultrasound therapies from Janette and Jessica. Dr. Mark's wife, Pam, and the whole staff is so friendly and caring. They make you feel valued and welcomed every time you come in. I highly recommend Dr. Mark Cafagna and his wonderful team!
