I've had back problems and muscle imbalances weighing on me and negatively impacting me for the better part of 7 years. Finally realizing I needed to see a chiropractor, I took the leap to take care of myself and reached out to HealthFirst Spine & Wellness. Without a doubt it was the best decision I've made for not only my physical health, but mental health as well.

The entire experience from consultation, to creating a plan, to finances, up to the actual treatment have been incredible, and frankly life-changing. There's full transparency throughout the entire process and they never keep you in the dark about something. Questions are highly encouraged, and Dr. Holden & Dr. Nikki do an incredible job of explaining what, why, and how things are done. They make it clear that their job is to help you get better and visit less frequent. Seeing this type of transparency is rare, but amazing to see because you know they genuinely care about your well-being and progress.

From the first two or three sessions I was already seeing MAJOR changes to my body, even positive effects to my mental health. I no longer have pain in my upper/lower back from sitting too long, or standing too long. I can continue to workout without being afraid of hurting myself. I'm feeling muscles being activated that I haven't felt in years. I sleep through the night, and wake up feeling refreshed EVERY SINGLE DAY. What!? The list of benefits and positive changes I've experienced in such a short 4 weeks are mind-blowing. If you're thinking about seeing a chiropractor, this is absolutely the place to go. Don't wait any longer!

I sincerely commend the entire HealthFirst team (Ayreis, Sarah, Dr. Holden & Dr. Nikki). You all make my appointments my favorite part of the day.

I came to HealthFirst Spine and Wellness with an excruciating pinched nerve-sciatic issue. The kind and professional team at HealthFirst and their expert use of state of the art equipment helped me to heal. During the work from home time of Covid, I had not been moving and I had to be mindful to correct this sedentary behavior along with the chiropractic and regenerative care to be fully effective. I am grateful for the reminder I had- to not take for granted good health and that healing is a process that requires full participation

I started seeing Dr. Holden last August as he came highly recommended by a friend. I was 3 months postpartum and my body (low back & neck specifically) was a wreck. Thanks to HealthFirst, I can comfortably chase after my kids! He is extremely informative and compassionate - aside from helping heal my body, he has also taken time to help heal my mind. I adore this practice and look forward to seeing their faces each week!

I had a huge knot in the middle of my back and knew I had to get it checked out. I thought it was something that needed to be popped out. I went for my initial screening which consisted of X-Rays and consultation of services. I return the next day and I found that I had more problems than the knot. My upper back and lower back were both out of alignment. I continued with the treatments even out of pocket because I don't want to grow old and have all these problems. From the day I am writing this I've been going for a month and already have seen tremendous progress with my posture and my sleep. Dr. Brad and his staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. Would HIGHLY recommend anyone looking for a Chiropractor in Austin to check out HealthFirst Spine & Wellness!

I highly recommend Drs. Brad and Tony to help you with any nagging issues you are experiencing. I have seen them for two separate ailments over the last 7 years and not only did they help me to overcome the symptoms that were giving me pain/headaches but they fixed what was causing it in the first place and put me on an easy to follow rehab plan that prevented the issues from ever coming back.

I have been a competitive athlete for many years. I know how injuries can limit performance and overall well being. These guys are really good and know what they are doing. If they can fix an athlete imagine what they can do with others.

The entire staff - from front desk to all three practitioners - are models of kindness, good will, and professionalism.
As a full time yoga teacher, I consider myself both discriminating and sensitive to back (and body) health issues; everyone here has my absolute faith and trust. I went in with neck and back pain, and left with nothing but smiles.

From the moment you walk through the door, it is obvious that the staff truly cares about your well-being. Unlike most other chiropractic experiences I have had, the team of doctors here help you understand how important it is to educate yourself on what's going on in your body. With that understanding, I know that there is no such thing as a "quick fix" for the issues it has taken a lifetime to develop. That said, in the short time that I have been regularly coming I have noticed some very rapid favorable changes in my posture and pain level. I have more energy, a wider range of motion and for the first time in my life have warm hands and feet. These may seem like small things but they are indicative of profound change and I couldn't be happier.

I first came to Health First Wellness Center more than six years ago with severe lower back pain. The chiropractors here didn't just give me a quick adjustment and tell me to come back next week for more of the same. Instead, they designed a rehab plan to get my entire body back to where it should be. I've been going to the clinic now ever since, and my spine has drastically improved! My lower back pain is practically a thing of the past, and I'm almost never sick! The best part is the staff! They are all wonderful people who go out of their way to get to know you and make your health their priority. Definitely the best clinic I have ever been to!

Dr Tony could be close to a miracle worker..... Rather than have surgery done on my left heel, I came to HealthFirst upon a friend's recommendation. He has been working with me, and through chiropractic care and a determination to get to the source of the pain(s) and fix it, amazing progress has been made. My pain is greatly reduced, I know it will be eliminated eventually. I can walk and hike again with a lot less pain. I am one happy camper.

I starting coming to Health First Wellness Center when I was pregnant, and was referred here by my midwife. Due to my pregnancy, I was experiencing much discomfort in my back and pelvic area. The weight of the baby was causing a lot of tightness in my muscles.

After several weeks of seeing Dr. Nikki, I began noticing improvement in my flexibility and comfort level. Then right before the baby was born, I was in a car accident, causing more tightness and discomfort in more areas of my body. After the baby was born, I was in pretty bad shape. After several weeks of bedrest from complications in labor, I could barely bend, twist, or walk.

Once again, Dr. Nikki got me up and running. I have returned to my normal ability to function and am now able to do my regular Yoga practice. The entire staff of Healthfirst Wellness, from the front desk, to the tables, to the back physical training area, is dedicated to the optimal functioning and alignment of the body. On top of that, they are all truly, kind and compassionate people. I am physically stronger now than before my pregnancy, and I feel more emotionally balanced. My body feels more open, flexible, and strong because of my visits to the Center.

* I wanted to add that I have been taking my 7 month old son for adjustments here as well since he was 1 month old. His head was mis-shaped as he couldn't turn his head to the left easily. Being a baby, his soft little head got squished down from only turning his head to the right. Again, Dr. Nikki was on it and noticed right away what was going on with him. His head has returned to a nice round shape and he is in alignment!

Dr. Holden and staff are as good as it gets!! I have seen several chiropractors in Austin and this has been by far my best experience. All three doctors in the practice are kind, knowledgeable and professional. I felt instant relief from my chronic neck and shoulder pain after one visit!
The front office is very organized and it is extremely easy to schedule and reschedule appointments. I have never had to wait more than 3 minutes to see the doctor and that is an AMAZING feat as far as Im concerned. I once had to bring my holy terror two year old with me to an appointment and the wonderful office manager played with him while I got adjusted!!!
Health First is an extremely friendly, family-like environment. I have had nothing but positive experiences with them.

I first started going to Health First Wellness Center - Austin when I dislocated my shoulder... again this time from an accident. I also had a pitch nerve in my neck and I was unable to turn my head fully to the right. I could not do a head-check while driving without lifting my shoulder and adjusting my upper body slightly. After a couple of months working with Dr. Nikki Holden, I have full rotation in my neck again and have my shoulder pain is almost non-existent. I would recommend this office to anyone without hesitation, especially those who are fearful chiropractic adjustments. They will put you at ease and you will definitely make you feel better... I do!
