Reviews for Elite Chiropractic & Rehab

What Our Patients Say . . .

banner_meet-dr-brownDr. Brown and staff are the most caring, professional people I’ve ever met. I’ve never gone to a chiropractor before and I was pretty skeptical to go to one. I didn’t think it would work for me.

I’m only 20 years old and all of sudden I got this sharp, unbearable pain in my lower back. It would radiate down into my left toe and was so bad I could hardly sleep at night without moaning in pain. I went to the doctor and they didn’t help me at all. I waited it out for a week and decided I had to go to the chiropractor.

Right when I got there Dr. Brown and his staff were very inviting. They were super friendly and listened to everything I had to say. After only two days of treatment, I had forgotten about the back pain that was keeping me from doing daily activities for two and a half weeks. I am now pain free and on my way to a successful recovery! – Ian T.

After having twins, my back, right shoulder, and neck needed some severe help – I was in a lot of pain. A friend referred me to Dr. Brown. His staff are among the nicest I have ever met. They remember you, get to know you on a personal level, and cater to every need you may have. Dr Brown is a fantastic chiropractor. In a few visits he has put me back together. He gets to know you on a friendly basis, answers all questions in a manner non-medical people can understand, and truly cares about your well being and health. I am so pleased with the care I have received from them. – Lindsey D.

Big kudos to Dr. Brown and his staff at Elite Chiropractic & Rehab. Never having visited a chiropractor before, I was a bit skeptical about the work they might be able to do on my nagging back pain. I’m only a few appointments in, but so far Dr. Brown and his staff have exceeded my expectations, and I am now started on a path toward recovery under his care.

They are friendly, understanding, and more than accommodating. Just hours before a long flight, I experienced sudden back pain and knew his office would be closed, according to the practice’s hours. I figured it was worth a shot, so I called the office anyway. To my surprise, Debbie (one of Dr. Brown’s staff) answered the phone immediately. She was able to arrange for Dr. Brown to meet me at his office in less than 30 minutes. He helped alleviate my pain, and arguably saved my vacation – talk about REMARKABLE…thanks, Elite Chiropractic & Rehab, for providing care worthy of your name. – Eric J.

testimonials-iconBeing a relative newcomer to the area, I’ve been forced to seek help from the wise and powerful webmaster (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain) when seeking any kind of service. So far, it’s worked out quite well and it didn’t disappoint when it came to finding some chiropractic help. Enter Elite Chiropractic & Rehab.

Dr. Brown and his staff are nothing short of top notch professionals who are still able to keep things light in the office which creates a great atmosphere that is highly conducive to patient comfort and ease. My story is a long one, but for the purpose of maintaining an audience to get through this review, I’ll post the Reader’s Digest version.

Due to an injury some 15 plus years ago, I’ve been hampered by a back that doesn’t cooperate like it should. My mornings start by getting out of bed with my torso at about a thirty degree angle from my feet, giving me that Neanderthal look that is so appealing on any person. From this position, I slither to the floor and proceed to do 10 -15 minutes of stretching that allows me to proceed through my day standing upright as nature intended. While it may seem to be somewhat of a hassle to start every day like that, I’ve gotten used to it and it’s become routine. That’s not a routine one should EVER get used to! As the back worsened, so did my quality of life. It was time to seek relief, so the web led me to Elite Chiropractic & Rehab.

In keeping with my promise of making this the condensed story of my back misery, I’ll state that since the completion of the first 8 sessions with Dr. Brown, my stretching routine is no longer a staple of my morning routine. I am now able to get out of bed and stand up in a normal fashion without the need to stretch first. While that may not sound like much, consider it’s been 15 plus years since I’ve been able to do just that! I’ve completed 14 appointments with Elite and the pain continues to lessen and movement is become less of a struggle. Quality of life is a wonderful thing and I’m enjoying just that.

In closing, if you’re like me and aren’t a big fan of pills or surgery, you owe it to yourself to look into a natural way of healing. You need to look into chiropractic. Check out Elite Chiropractic & Rehab. This place KNOWS what it’s doing! Dr. Brown, thank you for getting me back to a life I can enjoy and I know it will soon be pain free. – John H.

Dr. Brown has help my back in so many ways. I have gone in there completely unable to move and when I left I could touch the ground flat handed. – Jason M.

I started seeing Dr. Brown after a roll over car accident. I wanted someone that was familiar with the activator method because I was hesitant about a traditional adjustment. When I walked into the office for the first time I was welcomed by all the staff and made to feel at home. I was impressed with the different methods that Dr. Brown used and how he explained how and why he believed each would benefit my recovery. I was very impressed with the thorough explanation then the relief and results! I truly believe I have gotten as far as I have in my recovery because of the combination of activator method, traditional adjustment, electro stimulation with heat/ice, and the graston method.

I set out to find a good Chiropractor, I found so much more! – Amy D.

My experience at ECR has been nothing shy of wonderful. I suffered from constant headaches/migranes for years. I have tried just about everything in the book in terms of relief. My roommate recommended that I try a chiropractor to see if that could help and she recommended me to ECR. Since my first visit I have felt very welcomed. Dr. Brown really cares about his clients and seemed very dedicated to help me get rid of my headaches. I have been getting adjustments for 2 months now and am very happy with the results. I now rarely get headaches, and when I do they are so mild in comparison. I am very happy I made the decision to try chiropractic care and couldn’t ask for anything more from ECR. All of the staff there is very friendly and welcoming. They really take the time to get to know their patients and for me that is a refreshing quality. If you are considering chiropractics, ECR is the one! – Courtney C.

I’ve been going to Elite Chiropractic for about 9 months and absolutely love the staff and Dr. Brown. I began to go after my headaches came back more frequently. They offer a variety of techniques that is suitable for anyone. Dr. Brown always shows concern for each of his patients and always makes sure he’s gotten all the kinks worked out before you walk out the door. The office schedule is very flexible and they are always willing to work you in. I will say, my headaches have decreased significantly from when I began going. – Cristina G.

The staff at Elite Chiropractic is so friendly! Dr. Brown is always able to help ease my back and neck pain. I have been going to Elite Chiropractic for over a year and have always left happy! – Ashleigh T.

I went to Dr. Brown with severe neck and shoulder pain that had persisted for 5 years and I had gone to the point where I had forgotten how it felt to be pain free! In six weeks I was cured one hundred percent and feel light and easy everyday. I’m able to sleep well and wake up refreshed to tackle my teenager and my 5 year-old.Dr. Brown’s varied techniques gave me options to choose what worked best for me and every single session with him was conducted with absolute result-oriented expertise. His staff members Heather and Katy were very friendly and made my time there comfortable and assisted me in every way possible. My 62 year-old mother who lives in India was almost crippled to the point where she couldn’t walk unassisted or even lift a cup of water with her hands or even comb her hair. I flew her down to Bloomington with unwavering faith that Dr. Brown would do his very best to restore her to better health and five weeks later, she walks unassisted, not to mention that she cooks up a storm and is able to lift more than 10 lbs and goes about life with ease and confidence. The team at Elite Chiropractic and Rehab are like family to us now and my mother who is not well versed in English always says that Dr. Brown has “healing hands” and wonders what life would have been without him and his team. We feel honored to write this review for the remarkable difference that Dr. Brown and his team brought to our better health and quality of life overall. Cheers to all of you at Elite Chiropractic and Rehab, you are the very best. – Lavanya K.

Dr. Robert Brown is more than just a chiropractor. He’s a real person that sincerely cares about the health of his customers. One of his greatest gifts is how he relates to his customers and the bond he creates. He is able to connect with a patient and then educate on the process to better health. His methods of adjustment have proved to be incredibly pain free as well as unbelievably quick in relieving mild and severe back pains. I’m always amazed at how he can take me from nearly crippled over with pain to ready to do jumping jacks! I can’t speak highly enough of his talents as well as the efficiency and comfort of his practice overall. – Robert M.

Talk about family!! Dr. Brown and his crew make us feel right at home. Interaction between the patients makes rehab a comfortable and enjoyable experience. I had such bad shoulder pain that I could not get any sleep. Physicians prescribed muscle relaxants that gave me no real relief. By the 3rd visit I was able to sleep through the night for the first time in AGES. By the 5th visit I no longer recognized that my shoulder was there! I really like the “Activator” method that Dr. Brown practices. It is a very relaxing treatment that leaves me comfortable even between treatments. Thank-you, Dr. Brown, Katie and Heather! You all work together very well to help us feel better, and all do AN AMAZING JOB!! – Darin S.

I just started coming to Dr. Brown a few weeks ago and I can already tell a huge improvement! I would highly recommend anyone to stop in and try him out if you have any type of back/neck problems. I have a little bit of both and he always does a customized plan for everyone depending upon your issue. I think the Rehab room is great! It has a little bit for everyone and has a great personal trainer that is always happy to help. There is also a Spinal Decompression machine which is WONDERFUL. I would say to try it out for anyone who is thinking of going to a new Chiropractor or if you are just wondering what chiropractic would do for you. The staff really makes you feel at home and your not rushed to get in and out. There are different options as far as treatment so your not pressured into coming more than you want. I would highly recommend him to anyone! – Ashleigh

I have been receiving chiropractic care from Dr. Brown and his staff for a couple months now. I was first introduced to them when they were providing free massages in the Bone Student Center for Illinois State students. They were very friendly and eager to help with my health issues (neck & back pain). Results were instant with my first adjustment. Along with chiropractic adjustments, I was also prescribed a personalized rehab program to help speed up recovery/healing. My rehab program is thorough yet efficient and easily fits into my hectic college schedule. Dr. Brown also specializes in several different chiropractic techniques, which accommodates for those who prefer one technique over the other. I highly recommend Elite Chiropractic and Rehab for your chiropractic needs, they really take the time to focus on you as a person and what service you need to return to a healthy lifestyle. – Jamie G.

Dr. Brown is very good at his job. He really cares about all his patients and does everything he can to make your pain go away. When he adjusts you it is amazing how much better you feel. He does a variety of adjustments and they are all incredible. It is a great environment and everyone truly wants you to feel your best and prevent those injuries from happening again by going through some rehab stretches. He is the best chiropractor I have been to and I suggest going to him with any type of back problem! – Kati

Dr. Brown is the best chiropractor I’ve ever been to in my life! He’s the first chiro I’ve met who truly is concerned for his patients and he always take the time to listen and customize my treatments specifically for me. With other chiropractors, I’ve always felt like a “number” – rushed to get in and out. He really does put his patients first. Also, Dr. Brown is extremely honest, genuine and real – he’s not out to get people’s money like others are – unlike other chiros I’ve been to in the Bloomington-Normal area. Also, Dr. Brown is always learning new techniques and applying new treatment techniques. It’s awesome! He really is the best!! If you’re looking for a chiropractor, I fully recommend his office 100%!! – Leo C

I used to get severe headaches, occasional sharp pain in my mid-back, and frequent pain in my neck, but all of those things have dramatically decreased/lessened in severity since I have been going to Dr. Brown for the past 9 months. In fact, I rarely get headaches anymore, and when I do I am able to go in for an adjustment and amazingly instantly no longer have a headache when he adjusts my neck. He is especially knowledgeable in a diverse range of techniques, ski rope for neck, activator for more fine tuning/ less hands on – when you might be feeling very achy, obviously regular hands on adjustments, and impulse adjusting which is fairly new & wonderful. He really cares about people getting better and feeling better ( so no pressure if you just want quick relief or want to work on fixing issues that would take longer for lasting relief). Rehab is also offered and is great for patients to utilize in conjunction with being adjusted. Also he has such wonderful & helpful staff = ) – It really is amazing to feel as good as you are supposed to feel – because we all get used to just dealing with pain too often… Going there is always a pleasure, I feel taller and like a new person when I leave. – Connie

Very accommodating and professional. Dr. Brown gave me instant relief for my issue and has been 100% successful in keeping me pain free through regular adjustments. Can’t say enough good about this place! – Brian

Dr. Brown gives great adjustments and really listens to you about where you are having problems. He has many different techniques to take care of any problems you’re having! I would highly recommend him! – Jeremy

I met Dr. Brown when he was visiting the ISU campus. I had been to chiropractors on and off for years, but this is probably the most thorough examination I have ever done. In addition to Dr. Brown, his staff is very helpful. I made an appointment for an adjustment following the spring semester at ISU, and it had already been established that I was on the student insurance plan. A few days after making the appointment, his receptionist called me to make sure I was a full time student for the summer semester. I was not aware that students had to pay for the summer insurance if they weren’t taking a full time load. Apparently she had made that mistake herself in the past, and called to make sure I was covered or if she would move the appointment to the last week of spring semester. Any other medical facility I have been associated with would’ve just made me foot the bill- Elite Chiropractic says they try to make sure there are no surprises- it’s true. Long story short- Honest and good at what they do. – Cassie

Before attending Elite Chiropractic& Rehab I was on a miserable cycle of medications, Headaches, and arthritic pain throughout my body. My prognosis seemed to be getting bleaker every time I sought relief for my ever increasing pain. The most recent prognosis being spinal injections and eventual surgery. I was referred to Dr. Brown. Dr. Brown did not see me as a diagnosis but a entire person. Treated my pains; therapy, adjustments, decompression. Now, I am completely off pain medication, don’t remember the last time I had a headache and am enjoying increasing strength, endurance, and flexability. The thing that I consider the biggest benefit to my treatment by Dr. Brown is hope. – Diana

I have always had back pain & I found adjustments to be the most beneficial treatment. Dr. Brown’s techniques have been so helpful. The individual attention he gives each patient really makes you feel welcome & comfortable. It is always a pleasure to come into Dr. Brown’s office, not only for the great therapy, but also the great vibe one gets during a session. – Rachael

I’m not sure where to start other thanto tell of my experience. I do not live in Bloomington but work brings me into town on occasion. I receive chiropractic treatments all over the state and can say that Dr. Brown adjusts me like nobody else ever has. He was the first doctor to ever discover a connection between a pinched nerve and my thyroid and I seriously have lost 3-4 lbs after every treatment as a result of having my C7 adjusted! The doctor told me that this wasn’t typical, though. Dr. Brown does the “activator” method on me, which is what I’m used to from otherchiropractors. However, he does it way more advanced – for example, he uses it on my feet, shoulders, and jaws with muscle tests. Til this day, he is the only doctor that figured out how to get rid of my shin splints by adjusting this small spot on the bottom of my foot. Dr. Brown is very kind and seems very concerned with his patients. He doesn’t ever want anybody to leave if they’re not 100% better. I look forward to my treatments there! – Angie

I brought my 3-month old son intothe office and he couldn’t turn his head to the left. His head had been turned to the right for the past few days or so and I was really concerned about him. So I brought him to Dr. Brown and he used an “activator” tool on him and as soon as he was done adjusting him my baby turned his head to the left and fell asleep in my arms. I was completely amazed. I honestly didn’t know what to expect, as I wasn’t sure how safe it would be for an infant to get adjusted, but I felt very comfortable the entire time. It was a very positive experience and I plan on going back. – Julia

My wife and I both go to Elite and are very happy there. The office was pretty nice and so were Dr. Brown and his staff. They really explained everything thoroughly so that there were no surprises. I’ve had this painful spot near my rear end that nobody has ever been able to get rid of and I’ve been to physical therapy and a few other chiros as well as my real doctor. But Dr. Brown did some adjustment where I layed on my side and he dropped on exactly the right spot and the pain went away instantly. I was like Holy Cow! I couldn’t believe it was gone after having it for so many years. My wife has on and off neck pain and it was better after her treatment too. I don’t know much about the different chiros in the area but I know I liked coming here. And they took care of all my insurance stuff too. I had no idea how that worked but they took care of it all and explained it so that I could understand it. I didn’t have to do anything, which was nice. – Scott

My daughter and I go to Dr. Brown and I can say he is THE BEST chiropractor I’ve ever been to! I’ve been to at least a dozen other chiros and nobody has ever adjusted me like he has. He also adjusts my 12-year-old daughter and she loves getting adjusted by him. We look forward to our appointments because we always feel so much better afterwards. He is the only doctor that my daughter has been comfortable with, because he is very gentle with her treatments. – Mona

My husband and I just started going here and I can say that neither of us have ever been adjusted as good as we were here. Dr. Brown is very personable and professional and gave us great treatment. I’m very happy that I found this office. – Dawn

I’ve been to many different chiropractors and can say that Dr. Brown is very good! He gave me some adjustments I’ve never experienced before and he has some exercise equipment that seems to really help. I was feeling much better after the first session. My wife also goes here and doesn’t like the hands on adjustments, so Dr. Brown adjusts her using this “Activator” instrument and she loves it. I would highly recommend coming here. – Mark

Dr. Brown and his staff are so kind and helpful. They’re committed to not only fixing the problem but preventing it from returning with rehabilitation. Ive been suffering from pain for years and because of them I am finally feeling much relief. Super affordable and suitable for all ages. – Christine
