Very high recommendation for Dr. Todd Whittemore at Stow Family Chiropractic. He is friendly, knowledgeable and effective. I have been going to him regularly for many years and he keeps my back issues from acting up. His manipulations and digestive enzymes have been helpful for some stomach issues I experienced. I have also tried his cold laser treatments which are helpful. Melissa, the office manager, is top notch as well. - Niki V. (April 2021)
I've been a runner for over 25 years. I feared those days were over when I stumbled into Dr. Todd's office with substantial lower back and hip pain. He got me straightened out literally. He showed me my issues were caused back poor alignment and being out of balance. He got me the right inserts for my shoes and the right pillow to use. A few weeks later I'm feeling great and running and golfing without pain. I know the upcoming maintenance phase is crucial to maintaining my level of activity long-term. I know I'm in good hands going forward. Thank you, Dr. Todd. - Steve S. (April 2021)
Todd is a kind, generous and enthusiastic practitioner. I was grateful for his facility's laser treatment, which worked like a charm to help heal my torn ligaments. I have an underlying condition that requires certain modifications in my adjustments, and Todd was very careful and sensitive to this. He was very knowledgeable and attentive to conditions and supplements that support safe-keeping and a strong immune system during the Covid-19 pandemic. I felt safe and comfortable utilizing in-person office visits. Melissa, his office manager, is incredibly kind and welcoming, and willing to do whatever it takes to support a healing environment. - Patti P. (April 2021)
My husband had to drive me to my first appointment with Todd because I felt so nauseous I needed to lie horizontally for the ride to his office. I walked out of that first visit feeling human again and, one month later, feel transformed. I am no longer in chronic pain and feel more and more like my old self with each day. I am so grateful to have found Stow Family Chiropractic! - Gretchen N. (March 2021)
I started going to Dr. Todd when I was 16 weeks pregnant. I have suffered from migraines for 10+ years and had newly started having sciatic pain in pregnancy. Adjustments are quick and easy. He even used the Webber Method to try and flip the baby. I'm happy to say I have been migraine free for 1.5 years which has been life changing! I look forward to my sessions because I feel so much better after each adjustment. I've even brought my infant in for an appointment. The office is clean and welcoming, staff is friendly and scheduling is very accommodating. The pay in advance option is great too! All in all, 10/10. - Cathy L. (March 2021)
I would definitely recommend this office to anyone looking for a great chiropractor! I have such a great experience every time I go in for a visit. The office is clean, the staff is friendly and Dr. Todd is great! - Lauren M. (February 2021)
Dr. Todd is the best! My weekly appointments are my favorite part of the week. I could not recommend a chiropractor more! - Brianna R. (January 2021)
It was with a healthy amount of skepticism that I booked my first appointment with Dr. Whittemore. My reason, I have been experiencing chronic neck and left shoulder pain for the past five years and no amount of physical therapy would remedy it. In my first appointment, Dr. Whittemore took the time to address my concerns, assessed my situation through x-ray and surface EMG, explained my postural problems and adjustment methodology, and finally made the first set of chiropractic adjustments. Leaving his office after that first appointment, albeit still skeptical, I felt great! It's been a little over a month now of seeing Dr. Whittemore regularly and I'll admit, I've never felt better in the past five years. My neck and shoulder pain has seen dramatic reduction! I whole heartedly recommend Dr. Whittemore and the Stow Family Chiropractic offices to anyone seeking my advice about whom they should visit for Chiropractic care. - George M. (January 2021)
Dr. Todd is an amazing Chiropractor. After months of be stuck at home and sitting all day because using way to many devices and al the spring clean up he took care of my neck and fixed me right up. Not only is he great for me he is wonderful for my special needs child hat often needs adjustments for posture, help with drainage in his ears and general tune ups. Dr. Todd is kind and knows exactly what he needs. He is also going above and beyond with precautions during the pandemic! I felt very safe in his office! - Melissa W. (August 2020)
Both my husband and I are so thankful we found Dr. Todd. He is always on top of the latest and is honest to give you his opinion on whether or not certain treatments would work for you. For years after playing tennis my husband could not put his arm straight up unless he used the other for help. No one could help him until Dr. Todd recommended laser therapy. It worked amazingly. We are both very happy. Dr. Todd's office has taken every step and beyond for our safety with the corona virus on every ones mind. We feel very comfortable.Thank you Dr. Todd and wonderful friendly staff you always make us smile - Linda and Jack B. (July 2020)
Dr. Todd cares about his patients, loves what he does, and projects a cheerful, positive energy. I'd warmly recommend Stow Family Chiropractic to anyone. - Michael P. (June 2020)
Dr. Todd is the best chiropractor that I have ever been to. I have always had very bad headaches and tension from stress and he has really relieved my symptoms since I've been going there. He and his staff are always so helpful, friendly and really make me feel welcome. They are very accommodating and flexible in making sure to fit me in. They can always fit me in the same day which is perfect for the times that I pull or tweak something that only a proper adjustment can fix. It really shows how much they care about their clients. When I let Dr. Todd know specific areas that are bothering me he can always tell whether by looking or feeling the area and he always knows just what to do and how to help. It still amazes me when he puts his fingers on the exact spot that is in pain. He always takes his time to ensure I get a great adjustment before I leave. I have been going to Dr. Todd for about ten years and plan to continue for years to come! - Jillian A. (June 2020)
Working with Dr. Todd has been a revelation for my family and I. He gave me back my mobility and confidence in motion, and even saved my young son from having ear infections. - Ben D. (June 2020)
I have been going to Stow Family Chiropractic for 8 years. Dr Todd and his staff are terrific! Dr Todd helped eliminate my initial neck/shoulder problem caused by the type of work I do and I continue to go to him for regular adjustments to avoid future discomfort. Melissa is awesome! Always so professional, pleasant and helpful even if you are changing an appointment at the last minute. I would highly recommend Stow Family Chiropractic. - Dorrie L. (June 2020)
I've been going to Dr. Todd for years. I go every two weeks for a maintenance adjustment. He is friendly and responsive, and I would recommend Stow Family Chiropractic to anyone looking for chiropractic services. - Gail B. (June 2020)
The second you enter the door to Stow Family Chiropractic, you are about to receive something very special that has practically disappeared in today’s medical world; that is, caring and truly professional treatment. Having a chronic condition that brings along much pain, it was so encouraging to learn and experience a remarkable alternative to some of the medications. Before meeting Dr. Todd and his staff, all I had previously known about Chiropractors was from hearsay picked up through the years. Then, our pharmacist at the time told us about all the relief she had experienced from this wonderful fellow (Dr. Whittemore) in Stow. That was a little miracle. So, I called the following day for an appointment. Then, the changes began. His treatments made the 78 year body now feel much younger again and am back to running four miles a couple times a week. In addition to the regular treatment, Dr.Todd has been using the application of the cold laser process to the left knee. (The knee had been through a couple of previous surgical procedures and stiffens up without much exercise.) All I can say is that use of cold laser therapy really works. I was hesitant at first but now I’m a believer. Many thanks to Dr. Todd and his supportive staff. —John I
I feel the care I've received at Stow Family Chiropractic has been exceptional! I've taken my health to a whole new level since finally diagnosing some chronic issues and treating them effectively. Dr. Todd and his staff are great!! — Penny D.
I first met Dr. Whittemore during the summer of 2005 at the Maynard Farmer's Market where he was offering free trigger point massage. I liked that the Doctor did not pressure me about needing help. Before coming to Dr. Whittemore, I had headaches for many, many years (25 years or more). The treatments have worked wonders for me! Most of my headaches were caused by pressure in the back of my neck. The headaches have improved greatly. It's so great not to have pain. Thank you Dr. Whittemore! — Anonymous
Dr. Whittemore and his staff are absolutely amazing!! Since I started a short while ago, I feel so much better! I take less Ibuprophen, have more energy and feel like my old self :) My body feels "at ease" and it feels good to get help and support from the staff. — Ida D.
I first came to you in February with severe neck pain. A month ago, I developed lower back muscle spasms. Today I am pain free, thanks to you and your faithful staff of associates. My neck pain was so severe that I couldn't turn my head to even look for oncoming traffic as I backed my car out of the driveway. I can't believe that within just a few short months of treatment, I can now turn my head over my shoulder with no pain at all. That was unbelievable - now I really wish I'd started coming to you seven years ago.
A month ago, my lower back started having spasms that would bring me to my knees. Three weeks ago, you suggested I cut out sugar and reduce my carb intake, faithfully do some strectching excercises and use heat and ice as appropriate. If you recall, I wasn't too pleased at that suggestion (about reducing my sugar,) but I trusted you and followed your advice. This was not easy by any stretch of the imagination, but as you told me, I had to make a choice between being able to being able to play golf and move around comfortably, or eat the way I'd been eating and continue with the spasms. Though I still don't understand why the high carb diet wasn't allowing my back and hips to heal, that advice resulted in my not having any spasms for over two weeks now, AND I've lost 6 pounds AND reduced my midsection by a couple of inches.
I want to thank all of you for making me feel like a new woman. Moving around freely is critical to my having a quality of life that makes me a happy person. Now I can swing a club .. and who knows ... I'm going out for the Club Championship at my Club (something I didn't even think I could compete for this year!)
Thanks again to you all. — A Converted Chiropractic Believer, Laura D.
I am a total convert. I feel much better after each appointment - I look forward to it. I was afraid at first, but now that I know how much better it makes me feel, I am hooked!! — Kim G.
The excruciating pain that awoke me from deep sleep due to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and numbness in my first 3 fingers on my right hand, I now only feel on occasion! What a relief... — Carol H.
The whole experience at Stow Family Chiropractic has been terrific. This was my first experience with a chiropractor ever and it has been exemplary!! Dr. Todd has been a true professional. He is friendly and is quick to answer any questions I have. He has remarkable knowledge of the human body as a system and truly treated my medical situation as a whole, not just an adjustment and then send me on my way! He's assisted me with life changes as well as physical ones! I recommend Stow Family Chiropractic to everyone because of the quality of care I receive!! — Chris K.
Stow Family Chiropractic has given me a level of comfort that I haven't experienced for over 8 months. I regret having waited so long before coming into this practice because I feel so much better and will continue to improve, I'm certain. — Martha R.
HIGH CALIBER CARE! Dr. Todd adjusted my lower back, bringing it from "hard-to-breathe" pain, back to normal. — Valeria P.
This practice is very welcoming and friendly and the quality of service is excellent!! I would recommend it to anyone who wants to maintain their health and to those who have injuries and need more intense services. — Jennifer C.
They listen carefully and treat you with respect! I'm in better shape thanks to their treatment. — Tom Z.
Great results! Kind, professional, considerate treatment... — Anonymous
I'm not a fan of chiropractor's because I don't like being "cracked" but I couldn't sit without shooting pain. But because of Dr. Todd, all my back pain was gone in 2 weeks time! Although I'm not a fan of the "cracking" I have to admit..it works. I feel so much better in more ways than prior to coming!! — Joann L.
This was my husband's and my first experience with chiropractic care. I am a nurse and of course hear Dr.'s question the effectiveness of chiropractic or their concern about it. I have several friends that benefit from chiropractic. Prior to my first visit, I was experiencing back tension and discomfort and felt I needed someone to "walk" on my back to get it re-aligned! I'm glad we met Dr. Todd & staff at the Emerson Hospital Health Fair and came here instead! The care and attention we have received has been wonderful as well as educational and most importantly..therapeutic! We both feel better and hope to continue to as we visit here. — Karen C.
A FIRM BELIEVER...NOW!
