  • I would recommend this business

I started seeing Dr. Read in 2012. Prior to that I had spent the last 20 some years suffering with bad headaches and neck problems due to constant computer work at my job. I went to many doctors and no one could help me. I found Dr. Read, and after only one simple adjustment I was feeling better. I was so amazed that one simple painless adjustment could make such a difference. When I found out that the adjustment she does keeps me in balance, I was delighted. I am still amazed at what she can do. She keeps me in balance and feeling wonderful.

Customer Testimonials

I was at the end of my 'rope' with neck pain when I was referred to Dr. Read. I was taking 1200 mgs of Gabapentin because of an injury that blew two discs in my neck and tore lose nerve endings which had embedded in scar tissue from a surgery done 40+ years ago. I had been told by medical drs. that my only option was injections in my spine--only a very last resort for me. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Read's type of chiropractic treatment, NUCCA. I had gone to chiropractors for many, many years (but had never heard of NUCCA) but this is by far the most gentle, effective treatment ever! I am now taking only 100mgs. of Gabapentin along with regular visits to Barb--she literally saved me from a life of pain. She takes the time to listen and cares deeply about your overall health. Don't give up, give NUCCA a try!


I went to Dr. Read to see if she could address my chronic foot and hip pain, and she did. After being in treatment, my foot and hip are much better! She and her whole staff are wonderful--very professional and personable. And I couldn't be more thrilled with the results!


I have been going to Chiropractors for 30 years and I feel Read Health Center has helped me more than any other Chiropractor that I have tried. This was the first time that I tried Nucca and I have to say it is the best decision that I ever made. It has helped with pain in my back and neck and my sleeping problems. Dr. Read is so kind and gentle and she always takes as much time as you need to help you, even when she has a waiting room full of patients. I absolutely made the right choice when I chose Read Health Center
