"the pain has become noticeably less in a very short time"
"I have been receiving treatment on my shoulders from Dr. Patrick Doody for the last few weeks. I had been having pain in both shoulders for several years. This pain was the result of various sports related injuries (including a torn rotator cuff). Physical therapy only took me so far. I still had pain with certain motions. Through the use of the Graston Technique, Dr. Doody has been breaking down the scar tissue that has built up in my shoulders and then uses a series of stretches to enable the area to heal properly. The pain I had been having has become noticeably less in a very short time. I highly recommend Dr. Doody for his skill and professionalism both in the diagnosis and proper treatment of my injury. I also recommend getting a massage from the Massage Therapist, Lisa. I have had many massages over the years and Lisa is one of the best." -Brian F.
"highly recommend this clinic"
I crawled into Dr. Doody's clinic in severe pain due to a herniated L4-L5 lumbar disc as a last resort before considering spinal surgery. After having lived with this crippling pain for over a year and having consulted many doctors including spine specialists and physiotherapists, I was convinced that I would not be able to stand or walk pain- free again. Two months since that day, the pain was completely gone and I was able to resume my normal life (and no, I didn't have surgery).
Needless to say, Dr. Doody is a fantastic chiropractor. He worked with me regularly every week for 2 months until the disc healed. He is very knowledgeable, practical, friendly and personable and will not push you to come for any more treatments than necessary. The timings of the clinic are very convenient with early morning or late evening appointments that can easily accommodate work schedules. I did not have to wait for more than a couple of days for an opening.
I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone who needs chiropractic treatment! -K.V.
"extremely impressed with his expertise"
"Dr. Doody is an amazing chiropractor and a personal friend of mine. I have seen him for several years now and have been extremely impressed with his expertise, service and professionalism. He has treated me for back pain along with sports injury pain. He is meticulous and observant in both the diagnosis and treatment stages by asking questions and explaining what he's doing along the way. He makes you feel comfortable with any/all treatments before he performs them. He genuinely cares for his patients - - he is personable, friendly and overall just an outstanding individual. His location is convenient in Harvard Square. I highly recommend Dr. Doody to anyone seeking general chiropractic or sports injury and/or rehabilitation care. I honestly can't say enough good things about him!!" -Matt H.
"ran a personal best at the Boston Marathon"
"I went to see Dr. Pat Doody a couple of years ago while training for the Boston Marathon when I was having some hip problems. Within a couple of visits, my pain significantly decreased, and I was soon back to a full training schedule. I went on to run a personal best at Boston pain-free.
I would recommend his services to anyone. He truly cares about his patients and is a genuinely nice guy." -Kelly S.
"she is a miracle worker"
I've been seeing Susan regularly for massages and all I can say is that she is a miracle worker! First she takes time to talk about what she is going to focus on during the session and I find it really helpful to discuss what area needs attention. She then always finds the right spots to relieve tension from my tired and aching muscles and sometimes in locations I would never have thought to be connected to my pain. I had really bad neck and jaw muscle problems (probably from working too much ons the computer all the time and having way too much stress) and it's been so much better!! After six month of not being able to figure out what caused my jaw muscle problems they are nearly gone now because Susan worked on my neck.
I've also had a session where she worked on my lower back and I felt simply a lot happier and more relaxed the rest of the day. And of course then there was the time when I could not move my head at all because everything had stiffened up on a bad long plane ride but after being getting an appt the next day I could move again and the pain was mostly gone!! Amazing!
The bottom line is that I have a stressful job that's lately been causing lots of issues for me and I'm glad to have Susan work with me to relax and to get through it. I highly recommend her to anyone who wants long term pain relieve caused by bad posture/computer work and/or needs to destress a lot! -L.F.
