  • Dr. Ahnen, is very professional and really cares about helping you get better. — Mark SMesa, AZ - May 19, 2013Awesome Chiropractor!
  • Thank You Dr. Ahnen for what you have done in the past for me in 2001 and what you are doing now in 2011 to help my neck and back physical issues. In 2001; ten years ago a driver ran a red light in Phoenix, Arizona and hit my vehicle head on; totaled my vehicle. I was carried out on a stretcher by the ambulance crew to the nearest hospital. It was 10 years ago in 2001; I found Dr. Ahnen. Dr. Ahnen did a remarkable job to help me recovery from the car accident. I have noticed as we get older our bodies change. So, here I am now 10 years later in 2011; I developed this bulging mass in my neck; felt like the size of a baseball. I thought something is not right; my entire back is aching; my leg gets cramps. I can not sit or stand for long periods of time. The first doctor that comes to mind is Dr. Ahnen; I remember the remarkable out come I had with Dr. Ahnen in 2001; no doubt in my mind I am going back to Dr. Ahnen to see what this is in my neck. I must say the treatments I am receiving which started in April 2011 are helping me tremendously! I have notice a wonderful difference; the bulge in my neck is gone! Praise the Lord! Thank God for Dr. Ahnen. The back adjustments and treatments I am getting for my back are helping me. I can not forget about Dr. Ahnen’s Staff; Julia is so very kind, the message therapist are wonderful. I am very grateful to Dr. Ahnen and would not go anywhere else for my treatments. — Bridgette M. - Tempe, AZ - Sep 21, 2011Dr. Ahnen is a God send!
  • I wish to say thank you to Dr Ahnen for helping to keep me moving… and having a better grasp at life. I have many physical issues and he and his crew have helped me to keep on working 12 hour shifts that I am up and around at least 75% of that time, plus survive through regular time. He has figured out ways to help so I can function without having surgery so far… Hope I will not ever have to do that. Thank you again Dr. Ahnen. — Karan O. - Tempe, AZ - May 16, 2012Dr. Ahnen has helped to keep me moving…

  • 15 years of living with lower back pain and medications came to end after being treated by Dr Ahnen and his staff. It was just in time too, I was even considering back surgery. I had seen other Chiropractors before, But none had ever taken the holistic approach he did. He listened, asked many questions, took measurements, X-rays then diagnosed me with Facet Syndrome. Dr Ahnen, then put together a get well plan. The plan included me doing stretch exercises, something I was not doing that was contributing to the constant pain. He explained that several muscles were causing some of the problem. Because they weren’t being stretched, they were pulling on my midsection, exacerbating the problem as a result. The program included stretching at home, weekly visits and massage therapy from his staff. Interestingly and sometimes embarrassing, Dr Ahnen could tell whether I was doing my stretch exercises at home or not just by measuring and checking the resistance of my legs when he had me stretch at each visit. At first I didn’t look forward to my appointments but soon realized the pain was fading and was soon gone completely. I’m in maintenance mode now and still pain free. I’m pretty certain I would have gone forward with surgery if I had not been lucky enough to meet him. I just wish he would have been as lucky. I’m assuming most people don’t know this, but Dr. Ahnen did have back surgery. (Sorry Doc, if you post this, everyone will know) I believe this is one of the reasons why he is so good at what he does and why he cares so much about his patients. He just wants to make sure that surgery is a last resort. I have and always will, recommend Ahnen Chiropractic to anyone. Sincerely, — Roy Hughes - Mesa, AZ - Aug 7, 2013Pain and Drug Free thanks to Dr. Ahnen and his staff
