I came to Dr. Josh extremely wary of chiropractors. I had a lot of preconceived notions about them, but was on week 2 of some pretty crippling back pain from improper form while lifting a heavy object. He had me back to 100% so quickly it was mind blowing. My posture has improved dramatically to boot, and now we're working on some lower body issues. He's such a kind and knowledgeable person, and is great at explaining what he's doing, and how it works. I've been recommending him to all my friends and would do the same to anyone.

Beginning with the first session, I felt at ease sharing my story with Dr. Josh. I appreciated his welcoming presence, compassion, and curiosity. In keeping with his intuitive and thoughtful approach, each meeting is different and uniquely designed to best address what needs most attention. I was surprised by how quickly I noticed the shifts in my spine and an increased sense of balance throughout my body. I’ve also gained a more thorough and nuanced understanding of the contributors to my neck and back pain. I’m grateful to have been able to work with Dr. Josh, and I whole-heartedly recommend his practice.

Dr. Josh is one of the most intuitive, gentle, and effective Chiropractors I have ever visited. Over the years, I've been under the care of various chiropractors, while living with numbing knee and sciatica pain. Thru his care and unique methodology , I have improved mobility and feel pain free. Amazing, truly a relief!

I feel deep care during my visits with Dr. Pickell. I struggle with nonstop migraines and Dr. Pickell customizes his work with me every session to meet my body where it is and to leave it in a better position. There's no one template. Dr. Pickell adjust me differently every single time. I also appreciate Dr. Pickell's holistic approach to healing, which allows me to move beyond a bunch of pills and lean into practices that require me to change my rituals and mindset.

After trying many different therapies and doctors I found Dr Joshua who through natural chiropractic methods, helped me be able to walk pain free on an otherwise chronically injured ankle. I want to thank him for the individualized attention he provided me. I highly recommend him as a kind and knowledgeable chiropractor who tailors his care according to your needs. He helped me avoid surgery and invasive procedures and I can't thank him enough!

Dr. Joshua Pickell changed my life for the best. I was riddled with shoulder pain, knee pain and foot issues. The pain kept me from sleeping. I was searching to a way to get from day to day. Then I started seeing doctor Josh. On the first appointment he popped my shoulder back into place (I had no idea it wasn’t in place). It was the single greatest feeling of relief I’ve ever had in my entire life. He has since corrected my knee issues and my collapsed feet arches. I recommend him to EVERYONE, because I want to share my joy. You don’t have to live in a world of pain, not while Dr. Josh is practicing.

I've been seeing Dr. Josh regularly for well over a year now and I cannot recommend him more. He's helped me fix chronic issues with my body that were causing pain that I didn't even know were present, and my day-to-day quality of life has significantly increased since working with him. In the past I've had bad experiences with male doctors, and I have never once felt uncomfortable with Josh. He provides an extra level of care that I have not experienced with any other care provider before. It always feels like he takes his time and prioritizes quality care and good patient experience. If you are even considering doing any kind of chiropractic, do yourself a favor and see Dr. Josh, you and your body will thank you!!

Dr. Josh was incredibly thorough and clinically excellent when working with me. I’ve been to many chiropractors and he is by far one of the best I’ve seen. I can’t recommend him enough. Kind, thorough, and fair priced. I can’t ask for more than that. If you have an injury, or just want to stay on top of your game, Dr. Josh will take great care of you.
