Been seeing Bianco for years, since I found out I had 5 herniated and bulging discs in my lumbar spine, as well as a 13 degree curvature. He was recommended to me after a horror story of trying a new chiropractor with my diagnosis, where I left crying. Bianco assured me everything would be alright and went to work with a plan to get my discs rejuvenated and my curvature realigned. After about a year, I was back to running and working out with the best of them, and my curvature is NO MORE! We’re now going on probably year 8 or 9 of seeing Bianco. I still slip a disc or knock a vertebrae out of place once in a while from teaching dance, but he fixes me up every time. As soon as I feel myself throw my back out, I’m headed to him and within about 24-48 hours, I’m walking like a human being again. There’s many types of chiropractors, and Bianco is definitely well trained and focuses on anatomical corrections, and has helped my mom realign her ankle, knee, and hip too. My dad now sees him as well, and his decompression machine has not only fixed my spinal curvature and my disc issues, but has enabled my dad to have feeling in his toes again. He’s the only chiro I know that has a true decompression machine, and it truly works. Definitely go for a consultation. Bring your MRI’s and X-rays and just talk to him. I’m sure him and his training will win you over! If nothing else, he’s been keeping me walking, dancing, and standing upright for years, and that says something with a back that other chiropractors have dubbed as “the back of a 90 year old.”

Six years ago, I hurt my back to a point where I couldn't walk, sit, or stand without sever pain. I was desperate to get relief. I spent thousands of dollars on pain specialists, physical therapy, chiropractic care, new furniture, new mattress, new car...you name it, I was throwing money into my back, to no avail. I was seeing Fuller Chiropractic and Injury Center and Dr. Fuller recommended I go to Bianco Chiropractor for spinal decompression. What a GAME CHANGER! I went on a treatment plan and was pain free three months later. That was two years ago and I still have little to no pain. Most the pain is muscular from doing things I couldn't do before: golfing, cleaning, walking, cooking, riding a bike, and plain ole exercising. If you suffer from back pain, do yourself a favor and get spinal decompression, through Dr. Bianco. It changed my life. It will change your life too. Thank you Dr. Bianco, for giving me my life back!!!

Dr. Bianco is a miracle worker. I have a severe bulge between my L4-L5 vertebrae that occurred during a motorcycle accident and years of heavy weight lifting. Dr Bianco's decompression table has given me new life. I can now do the things I still enjoy like play golf and exercise, all pain free!!!!!
