Feel Better After Each Visit

I was a little skeptical about how much a chiropractor could help. However, Dr Steve is healing me and it is amazing and wonderful. I am recommending him to all my friends and I can’t say enough about how much better I feel after each visit.

–Carol R.

Insomnia? Headaches? Body Pain? We all have them – get them. The convenience of Oak Point Chiropractic is available, on purpose. You won’t know until you try it! So, try it.

“Back in May 2007, I was feverishly raking my yard. Well, this certain day I hurt myself. Believing that I easily pulled or twisted a tendon or muscle, my home remedies – the use of ice packs, and then heat via a hot tub and the use of a heating pad – did not alleviate the pain.

“This happened on a Saturday. By Saturday evening I was ready to go the nearest hospital Emergency Room. Instead I chose to contact a former chiropractic doctor, Dr. James S. helped to mildly relieve this inclusive initial throbbing of the area. Days proceeded. Pain continued. Level 10 pain on the scale, it was day-in and day-out.

“Throughout the next year and a half, the original pain persisted. At this juncture, I had seen six – no eight – different medical doctors at the UC Davis facility concerning this painful issue. Along with Drs. Allen T. and Kevin K., there were Drs. Allen T. with R; then Allen T. with Dr. O; then Allen T. with ‘can’t remember his name!’

“Discussing this with my friend, Libby, who is a masseuse at a chiropractor’s office, she urged me to make an appointment with a chiropractor at the Oak Point Chiropractic center. I did. Meeting with Dr. Mike S., he initially suggested that the pain could be due to a pulled abdominal muscle with a fractured cartilage located in the area of the rib where the pain was most persistent and prevalent.

“On the pain scale of 1 – 10, I walked into Dr. Mike’s office with an eight. During the course of my initial visits over a two-week period, twice a week, the pain subsided altogether with occasional bouts no stronger that a two. That was autumn of 2011. I continued chiropractic visits with him over the course of many months leading into 2012. Result? The pain is gone. Let me repeat that: THE PAIN IS GONE! After consulting with fourteen western medical physicians, this chiropractor helped. His care and knowledge also suppressed the lower back pain due to the ovarian cyst and displaced disk.

“Believe it. Lesson learned: chiropractic health care will be first and foremost from now on when my body gets in trouble, when it screams in pain for relief.”

–Andrea R.

In 2005, I was in a car accident that required me to seek medical attention for my back.

“The medical doctors advised me that I would have to live with back pain for the rest of my life. Since the accident, I’ve had back pain off and on, and I didn’t have very good posture. I always slouched over. I went to a neurologist and physical therapist to try to get relief for my condition before trying chiropractic.

“I met Dr. Steve Simmons at California Family Fitness and started treatment with him in August of 2008. By the end of September and toward the beginning of October I started to feel like a new person. I was beginning to feel like I had never been in a car accident. I was receiving chiropractic treatment, massages and getting the right exercises from Dr. Simmons. It helped my body and I did not have as much pain as before.

“Today I can stretch, walk, run and sit better. My family and friends tell me I look taller. I am actually taller because my posture is so much better. Simmons Chiropractic has done a very good job and has helped me out a lot. The entire staff takes great care to make sure that you are happy, and well cared for. I could not be any happier.”

–Ashley D.

Since 1988, I had been living with frequent pain from an auto accident.

“I had tried everything from surgery to pain medication and nothing was working. I then met Dr. Steve at California Family Fitness who informed me of the possible healing through chiropractic care. After my first visit, I noticed improvement, which has been continual since then.

“With regular adjustments and massage therapy, I have been able to participate in more rigorous strength training and even some yoga/Pilates, which has helped further my condition as well. I’ve also noticed I am able to sleep better, have much more flexibility and my posture has improved as well.

“What I enjoy the most about Dr. Steve is his genuine concern for my overall complete health, not just my spine.”

–Brent H.

Thank you so much for the dedication and expertise of your staff.

“I have had times where I literally crawled into your office and was able to walk out with a level of functioning and vitality that allows me to be an asset to my family and my community. I am truly indebted.”

–Carlos Y.

After a few months, my low back pain is virtually gone.

“I am 36 years old and have had debilitating low back pain for 25 years. Recently, it became so severe I was laid up in bed. I was always skeptical of chiropractors but didn’t have time for surgery. I met Dr. Steve at California Family Fitness and decided to give him a try. After a few months, my low back pain is virtually gone. Amazing!”

So I’ve been experiencing a lot of tightness in my shoulder muscle.

“A friend of mine recommended I go to Oak Point Chiropractic. It’s right by my house so I thought I would give it a shot. I’ve never been to a chiropractor and my insurance doesn’t cover it, so I was pleasantly surprised to find out they offer massages too. The prices were very reasonable so I decided I would just get a massage for now and see if it helps. I called yesterday and made an appointment for the today.

“I’ve never had a massage and I really liked the idea of going to an actual medical office and not some massage parlor type setting. The woman I spoke to on the phone was super friendly and very helpful. I came in today for my massage appointment with Amada. Before getting the massage I had a consultation with Dr. Steve. I really enjoyed meeting him. He was friendly and not at all pushy. I was expecting him to come in and tell me I needed all this chiropractic work, but it wasn’t like that at all. He just asked some questions and actually seemed interested in my answers! Not like my regular doctors, who treat me like I’m taking up too much of their time as it is.

“I met with Amada, who was going to be my masseuse, she was also super friendly. She made me feel very comfortable. She explained to me the procedure of the massage and didn’t mind answering my questions. Also, the massage was amazing! She paid special attention to my shoulder that has been bothering me and it started to feel better as she was rubbing it.

“I could tell she really knew what she was doing. I can’t wait to go back and get another massage from Amada. My shoulder has felt like new since I left the office! She rocks!”

–Courtney E.

I love Dr. Steve at Oak Point Chiropractic.

“Great place to go if you have back pain and just want to meet the friendly staff at this facility. Oh yeah, they have good massage therapists too!”

–Deborah R.

Five years ago I suffered with severe neck pain.

“I had limited range of motion and could hardly move. I cannot quite remember how the pain started but I know that it began suddenly and progressed over time. I tried over the counter medications, went to my primary care physician and used prescription meds, with no relief. With the constant neck pain I had difficulty driving my car and was in a permanent bad mood.

“Some neighbors of mine referred me to Dr. Simmons. Immediately I felt a change after seeing him. Then after a couple of months of care I started to feel great. Now I come in for treatment once a month. It is definitely worth it! I had a better attitude, I’m physically better and I feel young again. Now I am able to participate in recreational activities such as water skiing and snow skiing. I have even built up an exercise routine which Dr. Simmons encouraged me to increase the range of motion in my neck.

“I just love Dr. Simmons and the care he provides. He is easy to talk with and I can talk to him about whatever is ailing me. Whenever I have a concern he is great about trying to alleviate the problem. He gives me healthy recommendations on how I can improve my health and he always seems to relate well to what I am experiencing.

“Having a doctor that provides a holistic care and that is knowledgeable about so many different areas of the body is something I never anticipated while being under chiropractic care. Thank you Dr. Simmons for all that you do!”

–Eileen B.

I have been seeing Dr. Steve Simmons for several years now.

“I pulled my back out cleaning and with computer work I also have some upper neck and shoulder issues. Both Dr. Steve and Dr. Mike are great. They spend time asking you questions and making sure that you are staying active and that your body is healing well. They do accept insurance, which is a bonus.

“They also have a frequent visit program where you can purchase all of your visits for a year up front and not worry about it the rest of the year. I use the feature with my flexible spending account and it is great. I save taxes on it, and get in once a month to make sure that I haven’t hurt myself.

“They have early morning appointments and are great about getting people in. There is also a CMT (Certified Massage Therapist) on location which is great.”

–Felicia P.

Chiropractic has done so much for me!

“For over 25 years I was an avid golfer and swimmer. After six years of dialysis, I finally received a kidney transplant at the age of 80. After my transplant, it was extremely hard for me to get back on my feet and I experienced a number of related problems thereafter. I longed to find a solution that would enable me to return to my former active lifestyle.

“I was introduced to Dr. Michael Simmons through a good friend and the results were terrific! With chiropractic treatment from Dr. Mike, I was able to gain strength and flexibility in my body. Chiropractic has done so much for me! It stabilizes me and puts everything into alignment. I have arthritis and my muscles get tight. Chiropractic adjustments loosen them up. With the help of Dr. Mike, I am able to live a pretty active life for an 84 year old!”

–Gloria L.

I had my first appointment with Dr. Steve and it went great!

“My mother has been going to Oak Point Chiropractic a few years now and I’ve met Dr. Steve a couple times before. Now I get to be a patient! I had my first appointment with Dr. Steve and it went great! I’m looking forward to having a healthier back for the New Year.”

–Jaqulene A.

I didn’t think chiropractic could help me get my life back, but it did!

“What brought me to seek Dr. Simmons’ help was due to the debilitating headaches I was suffering from since November 2008. I experienced these headaches everyday, 24 hours a day and was bed-ridden. I had tingling sensations that ran down my arms and to my hands. I also had all over body aches that never seemed to go away. At times I thought I was going to die. I did not know what was happening to me.

“Before hearing about Dr. Simmons, I saw several medical doctors and neurologists who tried to help me with my condition. They gave me numerous medications and kept changing them on me. The medications offered minimal relief and never got me out of bed. The doctors had given me all their tests but didn’t know what was wrong or what else to do. They were done with me and released me to go back to work. The day I was supposed to back to work I thought would be the day I was fired. I knew I wouldn’t last a half hour at work.

“On the first day of seeing Dr. Simmons is when I noticed a change. I was able to walk around at home and not be restricted to the bed. On the next day I was able to do a lot of chores around my home. I was even able to mow the lawn. After one month of treatment I no longer have a constant pain in my legs and arms. I still experience the headaches but they are less severe and I am able to go back to working an eight-hour day. I can now spend my time with family and friends and enjoy family functions. My medical doctor has noticed an improvement in me since I have had chiropractic treatments. She sees the difference and even commented about referring one of her patients to Simmons Chiropractic.

“I am happy for all that Dr. Simmons has done for me. I didn’t think that chiropractic could help me get my life back, but it did.”

–Juan H.

I had a severe back injury which rendered me immobile.

“I called Oak Point late on a Friday and Dr. Steve Simmons agreed to see me. He stayed well after closing to ensure I had the appropriate x-rays and diagnosis before he did any adjustments. He discovered the problem area, made an adjustment and I was able to walk out of the office that afternoon.

“He was extremely concerned regarding the amount of pain I was in and was very sensitive to my situation. He determined the appropriate on going care and their efficient and very friendly staff made the follow up appointments.

“I have been very happy with the outcome of my visits and amazed how quickly Dr. Simmons was able to get me fully functional again. I highly recommend Oak Point Chiropractic and will most certainly continue to see Dr. Steve Simmons.”

–Kelley G.

Dr. Steve is amazing!

“I have always been treated with the utmost care and concern at this chiropractic office. Dr. Steve is amazing! I wonder…how does he knows what hurts and how to fix it. He does and I am grateful! The staff have always been so very helpful when I have a last minute change or need to get in to see the Dr. They do all they can to make sure I have a great visit.”

–Lynette B.

Dr. Mike is a life saver!

“I just could not make it without him. He keeps me out of the hospital and moving like a normal person!”

–Stephanie T.


“I had back problems for 3 years and had been treated by other Chiropractors without much success. But then I met Dr. Steve Simmons and I’ve been with him ever since!

“With Dr. Simmons, I noticed improvements right away. What impressed me the most was that immediately after being treated by him, I was able to start enjoying Power Lifting & Strong-Man sports again and I won a World Record on the Bench Press.

“It really amazed me when he gave me these core strength exercises to do and in just 3 weeks, my Bench had gone up by 50 pounds.

“Friends commented on my health and how much stronger I am now. I tell them it’s my Chiropractor. In fact, I’m working on arranging for Dr. Simmons to come do a presentation at my gym because he’s definitely the best!”

–Treston S.

Gave Me Back My Mobility

I never knew what it really felt like to be dependent on someone else, until I hurt my hip. The dependence on my husband to help me do basic things hurt *almost* more than my physical pain. You gave me back my mobility on the first visit. Thank you so much!
