My first experience with Chiropractic was in 1978. Coming from a traditional medical orientation I was skeptical and at the same time curious about it. Over the years I've experienced many good chiropractors and have gone to them off and on in various places I've lived. It had been several years since I had seen a chiropractor when I met Dr. Harris in 2005. I suffered from lower back pain, from a degenerative neck, shoulder pain and foot problems. I was in a lot of pain, much of it chronic. I was resigned to live with the pain - figured it was just what happened when you hit 50 - but some of the neck pain and shoulder pain became so unbearable I couldn't sleep or find any position to be comfortable in. My left elbow hurt to the point I had to use both hands to pick up a cup of coffee. After seeing Dr. Harris regularly, not only did the severe pain go away, but the chronic pain I thought I'd just have to live with went away too. It's like being in my 30's again. He is by far the best I've experienced. He has a gift for zeroing in on problem areas and taking care of them. Now I see him once a month to keep in optimal physical health. I have told many of my friends about him and he has been able to help every one of them without exception.
A year ago I came to Dr. Harris' office to consult for foot problems. I could barely walk a few feet without extreme pain. My toes had started turning inward, my ankles were fallen and appeared that I was walking on my ankles! My feet swelled every day, painful to walk or stand. I had been to 3 medical professionals including 2 podiatrists and was advised I would need complete re-constructive surgery on both my feet in order to correct the problems and walk. As much as I believe in doing things the natural way, this time I thought there was no choice. I could not see how I could be helped naturally, the problems were just too severe and disabling! I was given the name of a very good foot surgeon in Dallas and had already made an appointment to go and schedule surgery when my husband said I should go to see Dr. Harris and get his opinion about my feet. See if Dr. Harris could help me with my feet? I then went in to see Dr. Harris. He immediately named the condition (which I had not heard from any prior medical visit) and said he believed he could help me. He said it would probably take years of therapy, but his goal was to make my ankles functional and for me to walk without pain. Well, I said, okay, lets get started. Worth a try before letting someone cut my feet and lay in bed for 6 months per foot! To my amazement, the first day Dr. Harris worked on my feet (was painful let me tell you) I walked out of his office without pain! I was scheduled to come twice per week and then once per week and then per two weeks. Well, its been a year now. My feet are doing so well that I can walk anywhere for just about any length of time without any problems. No more swelling, very little pain ever. I am continuing the therapy every other week and sometimes every week. I need to mention I also purchased the Dr. Harris' special orthotics and took his advise on wearing shoes 1 size larger. My feet are much better, my ankles are gaining strength every day. I have even started to wear normal shoes for a few hours a couple of times per week (such as high heals) and my feet look a little better in appearance. Can't beat that can you? I am very grateful to Dr. Harris for his approach to health and healing. He is the best! I would highly recommend him to anyone. Its worth traveling a distance to see a doctor that is so capable. I will forever be grateful.

I used to wake up in the mornings with headaches and had difficulty turning my head to the right, which made driving safely a challenge. I also sprained my ankle as a child, injured my lower back by carrying amplifiers back and forth in high school, and had a bad habit of "popping" my back by leaning back on a chair. There was always a temporary relief accompanied by a lot of cool popping sounds, but I did a lot more harm than I realized. So I was in pain most of the time and I, like many other people out there, thought I was invincible and that the pain would go away all by itself... It only got worse. So a friend told me that I needed to go see Dr. Harris.
I finally went to Dr. Harris in October of 2007, and my health has been transformed. I used to think I was healthy, but I soon learned that I had to change my definition of health to allow for something greater than I had imagined. Dr. Harris, through the miracle of chiropractic, has restored full range of motion to my neck, helped me strengthen my chronically weak ankle, and... what back pain? I also learned that a healthy spine promotes a healthy nervous system, which supports the entire body. Chiropractic isn't only about getting your back fixed and getting out of pain.
I know that I get much more out of life because I get adjusted. Thank you Dr. Harris, and thank you chiropractic!
