I’ve been to many Chiropractors over the past 30 years but Rock Creek Spine & Rehabilitation Center is the best I’ve experienced. Dr. Groelz and his staff truly understand the bio-mechanics of the spine and provide the correct treatment and therapy to correct the curvature of the spine. I’ve had issues with my neck for many years and in just 3 months of treatment my neck has a nearly perfect curvature and my pain is gone. The staff at Rock Creek are always professional and courteous. I highly recommend Rock Creek to anyone suffering from neck or back pain.

I have a been a client of Phil On’s at Rock Creek Spine in Broomfield, Colorado, for almost 3 months and have been receiving regular deep tissue massages. I originally scheduled an appointment with Phil due to limited range of motion in my neck. I am feeling much better now and my range of motion in my neck, along with the rest of my body, shows great improvement. Phil is a phenomenal massage therapist who also demonstrates concern over his clients’ overall well-being. I would highly recommend Phil to anyone who is seeking to improve total body balance and well-being. I am a client for life!!

I started getting numbness and loss of strength in my left hand, and so I took a co-workers advice and went to Rock Creek to see if they could help me out. Dr. Ryan and his entire team of chiropractors and physical therapists were extremely nice and helpful, and Dr. Ryan thoroughly explained my issue (related to my neck) and how they were going to go about correcting the problem. I embarked on a several month journey with them to get my neck and back straightened out, and the office visits combined with the neck traction device that I purchased for home use has nearly cleared up the problem entirely. I still go in for maintenance visits, and I enjoy seeing Rick, Jim, and Josh whenever I need an adjustment. They are nothing but courteous and professional every time I visit them. If you are looking to correct some issues or just searching for a new chiropractor for maintenance, it doesn't get any better than Rock Creek Spine and Rehabilitation. Thank you Dr. Ryan and team for all the help you have provided me!

For a good amount of time I have been struggling with back and knee pain. Last August I was in a major car reck and that increased the already exscruchyrating pain that existed. I tried many thing to heal myself, yoga, rehab, doctors, etc. Finally, after visiting Dr. Ryan at Rock Creek and attending more than 20 sessions I’m finally healed. My spine and lower back are almost back to normal again. I’m so thankful for their help. They have changed my life. Now I’m back to doing the physical activities that I once loved. Thanks you so much Rock Creek!

I have been going to Rock Creek Spine on and off for various issues for the past 9 years. Any time I have an injury pop up from working out or sleeping on my neck wrong- they always take care of it. The tractions they provide coupled with chiropractic adjustments have helped my back and neck immensely. Highly recommend!

I've been going here for about half a year. All the chiropractors and staff are very friendly and accommodating. My work involves heavy lifting and awkward positioning. I've learned a lot about my body and have been able to minimize the pain with adjustments, traction, and the doctors education.

GREAT success for frozen shoulder, rotator cuff tendonosis, adhesive capsulitis! Convinced that these conditions stem from poor posture and spine and neck misalignment, I wanted to get to the root of it, as well as work out the symptoms. I found this AMAZING STAFF of kind, professional and talented humans...from the sweet office staff that knows your name from the first visit, to the wonderfully knowledgeable and effective doctors, to the rock-star therapy technicians Vaida, Emily and Shannon, and last, but NOT least, the deep-tissue therapist extraordinaire Phillip...I have better posture in only 4 months, 98% mobility regained and am almost pain-free. YES it requires dedication and homework but so worth having range of motion for daily living. Sincerely appreciating this group!

All of the doctors and staff at Rock Creek Spine are amazing! I was referred to them by my former chiropractor in Sunnyvale, CA because they were known for their effective treatments of scoliosis. I did traction and at-home exercises along with adjustments for several months. Now I have been a patient at Rock Creek Spine for more than 5 years. I just check in for quick adjustments every couple of weeks, and I feel fantastic! I have an active lifestyle (with 2 young boys to run after) and consider chiropractic care an important part of my self-care. I highly recommend Rock Creek Spine to anyone and everyone who cares about their health!

I have been going to Rock Creek Spine & Rehabilitation Center for several years now because they provide wonderful care. I started there because I had 3 bulging discs, and through a program of chiropractic adjustment and spinal decompression I now live a normal, active, pain free life. I look forward to my bimonthly visits to maintain my good health. The doctors are amazing, caring, dedicated and gentle people who are always concerned about your whole being. They have made huge improvements in my life. I would recommend this full service practice with many available therapies to everyone!

I look forward to going each week and miss it when I don't! It's not just because I feel better, everyone working there makes me feel right at home. It's not a race to get my session done either. I've made great progress on my original diagnosis. They listen to what's going on each time and adjust accordingly so new issues do not become permanent problems. It's the place to go for excellent care!

I've been a patient at Rock Creek for about 4 years now and it has greatly improved my quality of life. Prior to coming here, I suffered from a slipped rib and was in pain every day. The pain began to interfere with doing simple, everyday tasks and although I had always had a fear of spinal manipulation, I decided to give it a try. I'm so glad that I did! Dr. Rick makes you feel comfortable, takes the time to get to know you and your areas of concern, and tailors the treatment to fit your needs. I began to feel better after my very first visit and have been back with various complaints from neck pain to low back pain from pregnancy. All of these complaints were met with the best care possible. I never feel rushed here and the whole staff, from the receptionists to the doctors and assistants makes you feel like family. I look forward to my visit every week; of course because it helps with the pain, but also because this is such a warm and friendly place to be. Thanks Rock Creek Spine!

Rock Creek Spine & Rehab Center has helped me tremendously over the years. Prior to moving to Colorado I used to receive chiropractic care. However the care I received from Dr. Ryan was the first time that I can remember actually being pain free. I still go in for adjustments as needed, and I feel that the knowledge and skill of the doctors at Rock Creek Spine & Rehab Center is far and above any chiropractic care I had received in the past.

Rock Creek Spine is an incredible help for chronic migraines, neck pain and tension, buldging/herniated disks, and extremity pain! All of the staff are accommodating and helpful during my recovery. I suffered from daily migraines and chronic pain. I find relief from routine treatment, decompression, and adjustments.

Dr. Ryan and his staff, including Dr. Rick Roope and the therapists, perform an OUTSTANDING quality service in restoring functionality and reducing pain in a non-invasive manner. Spine surgeons had stated I risk permanent nerve damage if I did not have surgery. My condition of disk herniations was severe and debilitating. Dr. Ryan's treatment restored 80% functionality in a couple months, with 24/7 severe sciatica pain resolving to an irritable annoyance after a few months. The restoration of proper spine alignment allowed the body and nerve to heal! After a reduced treatment schedule, by 4 months I returned to 90-95% of normal. Results speak louder than words. Thank you Dr. Ryan, Dr. Roope, Viada, Brooke, Linda, Emily, Ashley, Jill and Juana!

I've been active all my life, participating in competitive sporting and leisure events since I was in elementary school up through adulthood. I've been a state tennis player & track star, a Jr Olympic swimmer, did quite a bit of biking, skiing, and hiking of all of Colorado's 14ers, including some in California, along with Mt. Rainer in Washington. Nothing has ever slowed me down until I started incurring lower back pain. My L5S1 disk was shot, my mobility became limited after time, and my activity level slowed to a crawl. My blood pressure started to rise and I started putting on weight. I truly wondered if I'd ever make it to my 60's as the pain was so debilitating and I was so stiff all the time that I could not touch my toes or get my legs into my pants without sitting or holding on to something. I had been to a chiropractor in Louisville who tried to help me but could not. All they had was an adjustment table and massage therapy available. I had pretty much given up and was resolved to a life of pain until I guess surgery became the next option for me. After awhile my husband became concerned about my mental and physical health and started researching options, that's when we came across the Rock Creek Spine & Rehabilitation Center. What a godsend this place was. X-rays done in house to show where you are when you start, followed by corrections, and then a final round of X-rays to show the improvement. Many options exist such as: Chiro adjustments, Acupressure, Massages, Stems, etc.; however, what made the biggest impact for me was the Spinal Decompression machines, they really helped open the spaces between the disks and have left me pain free and enjoying life again. Thanks to the efforts of Dr. Ryan, Dr. Jim, and Dr. Rick I've gotten my life and my actively levels back. I can ski the moguls again, have started climbing again, and actually look forward to my 60's instead of thinking I'll never make it that far. My whole family now visits the Rock Creek Spine & Rehabilitation Center; me for regular maintenance and care, my two children who are both NCAA lacrosse athletes to help keep them injury free and in good spinal health, along with my husband. My blood pressure is back to normal and I've started to shed the pounds I'd picked up to due to being so sedentary. To anyone who believes there is no hope and no options left, I implore you to reach out to the RCS&R Center. Help is available and waiting for your call.

Sincerely, Eileen Bradley, Superior CO

This is the first time I have ever needed chiropractic care for my back and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Groelz and his staff are knowledgeable, friendly and seem to genuinely care about their patients' well being. These doctors are interested in getting you the care you NEED and seek to not over treat, which gives me complete peace of mind. They also know all of their patients by name, which I think is so freaking impressive. I would recommend Rock Creek Spine to anyone.

Thank you so much Rock Creek. Today I live with very little back pain. One year ago, my day was sitting at a desk, as I got in my car to leave, grabbed the steering wheel to adjust when all the sudden had this terrible pain in my lower back. I have had back problems over the years, and had an appt already with RCS. Dr Ryan X-rayed me. My spine was over 4th inch off center. I always had this nagging pain by my left sacro e iliac jt. So I began adjustments 3x a week. Also decompression therapy. Within 6-8 weeks Dr Ryan re X-rayed me and I was backin alignment. I began to back off on the adjustments and decomp and added massage with stretching. I can say today I have very little pain. Mainly when tired. I continue to stretch daily. I am so very thankful for RCS services and highly recommend their services.

When I first visited Rock Creek Spine and spoke to Dr. Ryan, I was in an incredible amount of pain that had yet to be resolved, despite seeing multiple spine specialists, chiropractors and physical therapists. Dr. Ryan was my last hope and I'm so glad I found him and the awesome team at Rock Creek Spine. He assured me that he could help me and he did so, in exactly the time frame that he promised. My recovery has not been "easy" but it has been made easier by all of the staff here who treat every patient with respect and a friendly nature. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for chiropractic and physical therapy for a personal injury or chronic pain. Go here, you won't regret it!

I'd say that Dr. Ryan and his staff are the A-team of chiropractors - they are extremely professional, caring, and they do wonderful adjustments. I started seeing them due to injuries that I got from a fall, and couldn't turn my head to the left very far. I saw definitive progress very quickly with Rock Creek Chiropractic. Really an impressive group of people working here.

Dr. Ryan is the only chiropractor/doctor/specialist that was able to identify my issue and successfully treat it. After several years of feeling older than I should and popping pill after pill for anti inflamatory and pain I am very thankful and happy to report that after one, yes just one, alignment I immediately felt relief and was able to move and bend with no pain or "catching" in my spine. It was a miracle, well at least it felt like one. Granted my body is not perfect so it continues to slide out once in a while but seriously, no more pills and each adjustment lasts longer than the first. Thank you Dr. Ryan!

I have had an excellent experience at Rock Creek Spine and Rehab in these last 6 months. I have been very impressed with all of the doctors and staff. Dr. Ryan Groelz is an extraordinarily knowledgeable and talented clinician. He is thorough and accurate. I have had many years of lumbar back pain from herniated discs and, more recently, in this last 2 years, from neck pain. I have benefited greatly from physical therapy and osteopathic manipulation and massage for my back throughout the years. However, despite being an MD myself and seeing doctors of physical therapy and doctors of osteopathy, neurologists, and getting MRIs and CT scans, none of us was able to determine the source or the solution for my continued neck pain. Dr. Groelz was able to tell me what the problem was after his initial physical exam and his assessment was confirmed with x-ray. His treatment plan has worked and I have been out of pain for 4 months now. His treatment plan for my back as worked as well and I have been pain free for the longest duration since my problems began 10 years ago. Not only have I been out of pain, everyone who works there is extremely kind and they treat all the patients with respect and compassion. The office manager, the staff, the doctors, massage therapist, and acupuncture provider, are all extremely kind, professional, and patient-centered.

I suffer from ADHD, hypoglycemia and a thyroid condition that leaves me feeling like I want to sleep all day, even with medication. I went to Dr. Ryan because I had some hip and leg pain. X-rays showed that I have scoliosis, a condition many can have without even realizing. Previous chiropractic care only offered mild relief because they only offered adjustments. At Rock Creek I was able to get traction and decompression to relieve pressure on my nerves and actually correct the curvature in my spine. Within days I felt improvement and within weeks my energy was returning and I didn't need to sleep as much. It has been a real gamechanger for me! Chiropractic care at Rock Creek has given me the ability to begin living my life more fully. I hadn't realized how much pain I was in until I started feeling better. The greatest gift has been the energy and stamina my body has given me once it began healing. I HIGHLY recommend Rock Creek to everyone, even just to find out what condition your spine is in and what benefits may be in store for you!

I've had chronic migraines since I was 5-years-old, and the treatment I've received at Rock Creek along with a nutritional cleanse that they recommended has given me the most relief in 2.5 decades! Part of the plan was to re-align the curvature of my c-spine after whiplash that occurred 8 years ago. I had lost hope that the problems I also had from this accident would subside, but with the treatment Dr. Groelz started me on, x-rays showed I had 70% restoration of my c-spine after a few months. My corrected alignment has also helped with relief from chronic muscle tension.

The chiropractors and office staff at Rock Creek Spine and Rehab are extremely caring and compassionate individuals. I love going in there for my maintenance adjustments and therapeutic massages!

Rock Creek is a really great clinic. I have been to a ton of chiropractors over the years and Rock Creek has really figured it out!! They are very professional and they wont leave any stone unturned. They also have lots of different types of treatment to offer depending on what the problem is - definately not a one size fits all approach. I STRONGLY recommend them.

To give a quick background, after experiencing severe symptoms (inflamed esophagus, sore throat, acidic burning in mouth and sinuses, chest pressure, etc.) of GERD in January of 2015, it was discovered during an endoscopy that I had a hiatal hernia. This is where the stomach pushes through the diaphragm and enters the chest cavity, thus causing the lower esophageal sphincter to remain open. Acid is then allowed to go freely into the esophagus where it wreaks havoc on tissue it wouldn't normally affect. Once the gastroenterologist finished my endoscopy, the only treatment option offered was to take medication to lower my stomach acid. I was told that I would be on these pills for life despite the FDA warnings about taking these longer than 2 weeks. Hesitant but anxious to find relief, I took his advice and started on the highest dosage of 80mg of PPIs. It greatly reduced my stomach acid for temporary relief, but the combination of side effects and the fact that I had too little stomach acid to break down food were worse than the original symptoms. After months of trying Prevacid, Zantac, Nexium, Pepcid AC, Prilosec, Tums, and Gaviscon, nothing worked. I felt worse than I ever had, and this was their supposed "go-to" treatment. Nissen fundoplication surgery was deemed ineffective and risky, and because of the failed suggestions of medical doctors (who I lost faith in) and the runaround I was getting, I eventually spent hundreds (literally) of hours researching every article, forum, and trial on the internet to figure out what I had and how to cure it. I eventually decided to ditch all medical suggestions and go the holistic route. I stopped all medication and began a diet of vegetables, lean meats, and water. I completely eliminated dairy, carbs, fatty foods, coffee, sugar, and alcohol, and within weeks I had lost over 25 pounds (but not intentionally). Granted, my original weight of 165lbs was considered normal, but the diet change allowed my body to reset. Some of my symptoms subsided, but I still had the extreme chest pressure and throat muscle soreness from the stomach protruding from the diaphragm. Enter Dr. Ryan and the Rock Creek Spine team!

After receiving a consultation by Dr. Ryan, I was initially placed on a care plan of two visits per week where I received a hiatal hernia adjustment in addition to several others to align the body. The former is important to bring the stomach back down below the diaphragm, and the latter is equally important to keep things properly aligned to maintain equilibrium and prevent further issues. Not only did I start noticing a decrease in my original symptoms (primarily chest pressure, tight throat, and acidity), but I noticed an increase in whole body health. I felt my posture improve, and my monthly migraines completely disappeared. Along with chiropractic care, the massage therapy and trigger point therapy I received were also a huge aid in removing my original symptoms. There are many other services they provide, but luckily I haven't had the need for them. What I can tell you, though, is that Dr. Ryan and his colleagues are very knowledgeable in their field, and it's a great relief to find doctors that promote holistic methods of healing. They, along with their friendly staff, truly care about their patients and I've found that extremely hard to come by. My past experiences with other facilities during my journey have proven that. After receiving treatment at Rock Creek Spine throughout 2015, I can honestly say that I've made a complete turnaround without the need for surgery or medication. With a condition that's so severe and so under-studied, my hope has been restored and I'll continue to visit Rock Creek Spine weekly to maintain my overall health. Highly recommended!

I went to see Dr. Ryan Groelz today for a general preventative appointment / check up. It was my first time in his office. And it was an outstanding experience. I was greeted promptly by a very friendly and helpful staff.

In my appointment, the Dr. took time to listen to me describe my current situation, past injuries, etc. I didn't feel rushed or hurried. He asked pertinent questions and gave me thoughtful and relevant advice. He pointed out some minor subluxations before fixing them. He took time to detail my current condition - explaining everything to me. The doctor was very pleasant and genuinely concerned with my well-being.

I walked out of there feeling great. I will be returning again.

It is such a pleasure to write this review! Almost two years ago this time I walked out of the neuro surgeon's office in tears and more pain than I felt I could stand. I had pain going down into my shoulders, weakness in my hands and lower extremities.I could not turn my head from side to side without it catching or pain shooting into my head and neck. He said that 4 of my discs were "gone" and a 5th disc was protruding out. He further told me the only thing he could do because of the severity of the desease process was to operate asap. This included fusion of 4 of the discs and possibly a fifth).He thought I might achieve at least an 85% decrease in my current pain. When I asked about alternatives, he did not offer any-it appeared that it was too late to try anything else. I told him I had to try something else first. Being an RN who had worked for a year as a neurosurgical nurse, I knew the possibilities of outcomes--living in pain for one thing. I told him I was going to go to try chiropractic first. He told me "when you get tired of this pain and your quality of life is worse, come back and I'll operate!"

I called Dr. Ryan Groelz whom I had worked with before and received excellent spinal care and success. I gave him my X rays and MRI, and asked one question, "Can you help me?" I felt so desparate and I was hurting something awful at that moment. He looked at my reports, and said "Yes, we can help you." With that we set up a plan of care, and I started going for treatments 3 times a week. My treatments included laser therapy, physical therapy, dry needling, neck traction and physical manipulation along with neck massage. It was intense, and hard to get there at times, but Dr. Ryan kept encouraging me.

Over the next few weeks and months I just got better and better--less pain, able to do my housework, less spasm, increased strength in all areas, and I could move my neck withoug turning my whole body. At about two and a half months of treatment with Dr Ryan and staff, I made an appointment to see a second neuro surgeon that I had been told was top in his field. He checked me over, looked at the reports and x-ray/MRI, did his own set of x-rays and told me to keep on doing what I was doing because it was working. His words, "If you were my mother, I would tell you not to let anyone cut on your neck!" Somewhere about 3 months my visits were less and the improvement just continued on. By six months I was doing regular stuff and feeling really good. At some point I stopped even thinking about my neck because I was no longer reminded that it had been so sick.

I had my one year check up a couple of days ago at the neurosurgeons (the 2nd one) office, and I was told they did not need to see me anymore unless I had a new issue.

My family and friends cannot believe the difference between where I was then and where I am today. As a part of my regular healthy life style I now see Dr. Ryan and staff every two weeks for maintainance care. And, I tell everyone I see having structural issues about Rock Creek Spine, Dr. Ryan and the staff and encourage them to to go in before they do something else.

I am so thankful and grateful that I have my neck back!! As I told Dr. Ryan one day, "You saved my neck, litterally!) Thank you Dr Ryan, and all the staff for helping me.
