Dr Carlbert is a thorough and gentle doctor. He actually spends time with his patients, does a bit of pre-adjustment massage to warm up the muscles, looks at your wrists, ankles, legs, etc. His adjustments are great. I have seen him for years and I always leave his office feeling better. Once, I came in for regular back treatments (I sit at a computer all day !) and as he was looking at my ankles he asked if I had been having any pain in the left ankle. I hadn't mentioned it, but come to think of it, yes! When I run, my left ankle has some slight pain. He adjusted it and told me it should be fine now, and sure enough, no more pain when running. Do your back and neck a favor...go see Dr. Carlbert!
