"I had some neck and back pain when I got there, but he handled that. I will return for the full treatment of the massage and alignment."

- Posted by Neila on Google Places with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"He is the Best. My wife and I recently switched Chiropractors and we are glad we did. Dr Matt takes extra time to make sure he has completed all the adjustments. He even treats my runner's knee without a charge. A patient, calm chiro, that I feel really cares about your health."

- Posted by Michael on Google Places with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"I hurt my back moving wood at my cabin over a weekend. I saw Dr Nuesse that following Monday, and he gave me an examination, treatment and exercises. Within a 2 weeks, I felt better then I did before I injured my back. Dr Nuesse did a great job and I would recommend him to anyone."

"Excellent Sports Medicine Physician. Dr. Nuesse was able to resolve my nagging hip pain that I sustained while training for an Ironman triathlon. After few sessions, I was able to return to full activity. Without Dr. Nuesse's assistance I would have not been able to complete my race."

"They provide a number of different services. This seems to be the key to achiving quick and lasting results."

"A very good experience. I went in for pain shooting down my leg. It did take several sessions before the pain cleared up but all in all I am very satisfied with the results."

- Posted by rjturner68 on Google Places with a rating of 4 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Fed up with my chronic lower back pain, neck/shoulder tightness, and tired of being dependent on pricey spa massages I decided to give Chicago Joint and Spine clinic a try. After less than a month of treatment with Dr. Nuesse (adjustments and very simple back-strengthening exercises) I am thrilled with the results - drastic decrease in my pain, greater flexibility, and a better range-of-motion. The treatment has exceeded all my expectations. Dr. Nuesse is very patient and thoroughly explains his diagnosis and method of treatment. Also, as Erin N. commented, he is very flexible with scheduling; I never have a problem getting an appointment on or around my lunch hour."

- Posted by Kim P. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Dr. Neusse's office provides a very intimate environment for individualized care. He was willing to spend a lot of time explaining how he could help me, the steps he would take to do so, and lastly, to make sure I was comfortable throughout the process. I also love the lack of pretension - he answers his own phone and is incredibly flexible, which is so rare in the medical world."

- Posted by Erin N. on Yelp.com with a rating of 4 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Dr. Nuesse and his therapist spend a good deal of time with me each time I visit the office. They are located near my office and take lunch appointments whaich is very convenient. I always walk out feeling better than when I walked in. I am very happy that I found them."

- Posted by CCcris on Citysearch.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"All I can say is that they are good at treating headaches. I walked in not knowing what to expect and within a week i knew I was in the right place. Little by little my headaches went away just as they said they would. Great job guys. Keep it up!"

"I began seeing Dr. Matt after a car accident a year ago. When I began I was barely able to turn my neck. After a few weeks I regained full mobility. The difference was really remarkable. I continue to see Dr. Matt periodically for maintenance. Thanks for the continued help."

- Posted by Seth on Google Places with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"The listened to me and resolved the issue I came in with. A good all around experience."

- Posted by Mark Ruffin on Google Plus Local with a rating of 20 out of 30 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Dr. Matt was very informative and caring. This is an amazing clinic. Very kind and genuine, not only did he take time to clearly explain what we were working on but took time afterword to explain things that are counter productive, helped explain what was some of the potential problems and gave insight into personal things that I can work on."

- Posted by A Google User on Google Plus Local with a rating of 30 out of 30 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"I have been very impressed by the care I have received from Dr. Neusse.  I came in with severe knots in my upper back and joint pain in my knees.  Through adjustments, at-home stretches, and the work of Dr. Neusse's fabulous massage therapist, I no longer experience pain and tightness on a daily basis!  Dr. Neusse takes the time to answer all of my questions and makes it easy for me to fit appointments into my busy schedule.  I really like the calm environment of his office and his patient-centered approach to care.  It's also a plus that he answers his own phone and offers prompt email confirmations when making appointments online."

"Great Doctor, very informative. I enjoy every visit to the office, and I always feel, better. I recommend him to everyone."

- Posted by Missy T. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Thorough, caring, professional -- he knows his stuff. In describing his adjusting technique, I would say he's 'an artist' -- he doesn't adjust it until he finds the exact spot, and then it's painless and swift. No yanking your neck around trying to find it. He does everything he can but he doesn't do more than is necessary. He's there to heal, not bring in the bucks by prolonging your situation. I've been going regularly for almost 3 years, now, for a chronic ailment, and I've never felt better. If you like deep tissue work, he's your guy -- gets in there, gets it out, and it's great. I can't imagine another chirorpractor any better than Dr. Matt. Not far from the El."

"I was sent here by a friend after injuring my hip working out. I was causiously optimistic about what they could do. I was actually blown away with how I was treated. Before any kind of treatment began, I was examined thoroughly and then given the details about what it would take to get me better. I followed the Dr.'s advice and was back working out the next week. Thanks!"

- Posted by Matt R. on Yelp.com with a rating of 4 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Overall a great experience. Not only did they help me with the problem that I came in with, but at my first visit I was given a detailed timeline of what I could expect. In Pain? They are deffinately worth a try!"

- Posted by Rachel B. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Truly a great experience! The staff is wonderfull and you can tell that they really care about improving your health. I would definately recomend them, in fact I have already sent 2 coworkers to their office!"

- Posted by Mark N. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"I recently experienced an injury to my lower back when working out. I found this practice and have been so impressed by the treatment I receive. Dr. Nuesse really took the time to assess the root cause of the injury. He also provided me a guide on exercises to perform to help the problem. Although I still have some treatment to go, I am already feeling 100% better. I definitely recommend this practice! Last note: The massage therapist is great too! I am definitely a big fan!"

- Posted by Nicole G. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"I was very nervous about seeing a chiropractor and wondered how one could help. When I met Dr Nuesse all of my fears faded away. He was (and still is) very patient with me. He listens to everything and lets me ask a ton of questions; ranging from completely absurd to the super logical--"if you stop doing that the pain will go away!" kind. He has helped me pinpoint problems, made them go away, and helped me become much more aware of my body and how it works. Also Dr Nuesse gives great feedback about self care and what I can be doing to help myself. His office is easy to get to at the Board of Trade building and he has always made time to see me when I need him."

- Posted by Kara P. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"I must admit I was skeptical at first. A friend told me about the office so I tried it out. I have beein having headaches for years which i thought I would just have to live with. After the first week I already started feeling better. By the end of my time at the clinic I hardly had headaches. I was given some easy exercises that realy help keep my headaches at bay. I have reccomended this place to two of my co-workers!!!"

"Just this past week, I had a sudden problem with my left wrist and hand and regretfully walked into another chiropractors office (no names mentioned!) just because it was a block away from where I live. This doctor had me waiting around while he kept running to other appointments while "working" on me. Then I was told the only solution to my problem was to buy $30 vitamins which I would have to take3xs a day for 2 months in order to decrease the inflamation in my wrist and hand. Feeling no better, I called in an emergeny at Chicago Spine and Joint Care and was seen within hour, despite it being the end of the day on a Friday. I particularly appreciate the candid talk -- Dr. Matt Neusse isn't afraid to be realistic and gave me simple easily managable solutions, like ice and ibprofen. Of course, my inflamation was virtually gone the next morning.

"I came here after spending a week suffering with a dislocated rib. Having had similar things before, I knew that the best I'd get from my primary care would be a concerned look & maybe a recommendation to wrap it. On the suggestion of a friend, I gave chiropractics a try - the pain was significantly less the next day and gone the day after that. The procedure was simple and everyone was incredibly informative and pleasant. Couldn't possibly have had a more positive experience."

"I've been going here since they first opened and have never considered anywhere else! I love how conveniently this place is to my work, the special attention I recieve every time, and how my schedule is respected. With my busy schedule, it's important to be able to pop in during lunch.

As a patient, you dont want to feel nickeled and dimed, or like your concerns or problems are not being addressed in a practical manner. Here, I feel really comfortable and that I'm important. I feel like my health is in excellent hands!"

"I have had Dr. Matthew as a chiropractor for over a year now, and he is the best! Extremely knowledgeable, great flexibility with his scheduling, and very time-efficient with his adjustments. I always leave his office feeling a million times better than when I came in - couldn't ask for more in a chiropractor."

- Posted by Breanna F. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Before I went here I had a headache for over a month, after my first adjustment with Dr. Matt it went away. Now I have Dr. Josh and every time I come in he is my hero, he knows what I need and he asks the right question. Everyone right down to Allison the receptionist is friendly, if I need to change my appointment time they always find a way to accommodate me. I feel great when I leave there every time, I can't recommend them enough."

"Dr. Rowell has done a fantastic job of eliminating my constant neck and back pain from sitting at a desk all day. Their office is conveniently located in the loop and they are great at working with your schedule and you never have to wait when you get there. Also, the massage therapist has done wonders for my tight back and shoulders! I highly recommend this place!"

"I have suffered from chronic sinus problems for several years and tried numerous OTC medications to no avail. I see Dr. Rowell for lower back pain and saw that he also performs accupuncture. I decided to try accupuncure for my sinus discomfort and I have had amazing results. I do not like needles but accupuncture needles were painles and relief surpassed all expectations! This is the perfect solution for my sinus problems due to allergies and the relief lasts far longer than any medication. Dr. Rowell explained where the needles would be placed and made sure I did not experience any discomfort. He was patient and informative and I did not have to wait or feel pressured to make return visits. I will definitely do this again."

"Awesome best massage therapist ever."

- Posted by Missy T. on Foursquare with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Got a complimentary acupuncture yesterday and was totally relaxed during my experience. I was very tired and so I got a very brief nap while I was getting the acupuncture. Dr. Rowell really took care of me, he brought me a chair over so I could relax my arm, and he explained the procedure thoroughly to me. Although I felt no obvious relief of stress from the acupuncture, I think it helped me out subconsciously."

- Posted by Derek Smith S. on Yelp.com with a rating of 4 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Great place to go for chiropractic therapy! Dr. Rowell seems to know what he's doing and makes sure to do all the necessary adjustments during each appointment. Dynah, the massage therapist, is FANTASTIC. I've been going to her almost every week since February. I have chronic neck, back, and shoulder pains from studying and working at a desk all day, and weekly work takes care of the issues, no problem!"

- Posted by Alex B. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"Dr Matt has moved on and now Dr Josh is here. Still excellent adjustments and he even does acupuncture!"

- Posted by Michael M. on Yelp.com with a rating of 5 out of 5 for Chicago Spine and Joint Care

"I took my 14 year- old daughter here for treatment of neck, lower back and knee pain. Memories of a  painful and ineffective adjustment made her a bit nervous about the visit, but a 30 minute massage with Kara left her relaxed and purring like a kitten!  Dr. Rowell took time to explain what he was going to do and was very gentle and thorough. He gave her an illustrated booklet of  exercises to do and answered all of our questions. Although much of her discomfort was alleviated after that first visit and the exercises continue to help, we will definitely be back!"

"Dr Josh is amazing! I recently visited his clinic for lower back pain. I just started working again after 2 years of my university degree. And within month I got this pain. I found him through my Cigna care insurance list and went to him. He not only made me stretches and did few therapies, he also told me few home exercises which were pretty helpful. Thank you Dr."
