Richard Racioppi
Your Royersford Chiropractor


Let me start off by saying that I have tried almost anything to relieve my back pain. I have tried pain medicines of all kinds. My doctor had given me steroid shots. All these methods did not help my pain at all. I had trouble sleeping at night, playing with my children, even driving in the car was a battle with pain. I had suffered with severe back pain for at least 2 years.


My life before Spinal Decompression was very painful. I was limited to the things I was able to do. I had serious low back pain, and also a sharp pain shooting down my right leg. I could not ride in the car for a longtime with having pain. I was at many doctors trying to figure out the cause of my pain. I was unable to exercise the way I had in the past. Every time I tried to workout or play sports, I would have to stop due to the pain. I continued to suffer with this pain for over one year, until Doctor Rick suggested the Spinal Decompression machine for me. After my first time on the machine I felt a huge difference and I slept through the whole night for the first time in months. If I had not used the Spinal Decompression I think that in 10 years I think that my life would be nothing but pain, and unhappiness. I would be missing out on all the activities I love to do with my husband. I would want others to know that yes Spinal Decompression does work and after all the treatments I got my LIFE back from pain. Thanks Dr. Rick


I was in a lot of pain before spinal decompression. The pain was preventing me from working and doing my job duties. The pain was keeping me from doing anything related to work, I had a hard time bending over and walking. The only other think that gave me any relief was Advil. I just figured I had to live with the pain. I had low back pain for at least 5 years. I was unhappy with my life. I would not be able to work or ride my Harley. I have been only treating a few weeks and I feel 50% better already and my back feels much looser. It is safe comfortable enough for anyone. Just try it and see how great you will feel.

Testimonial4.jpgBefore I came to Progressive Rehab I had a lot of lower back pain. The pain was so bad that it prevented me from doing my job and even exercise. I did not do anything for the pain I just though the pain would go away, I was just going to wait to see if there'd be any change. I have suffered with low back pain for a couple of years but it has been really severe for the last 6-7 months. I went into Progressive rehab and learned about Spinal Decompression. It was not invasive, safe and comfortable enough to let any family member use. Plus it really works. If I didn't use Spinal Decompression my health would be in the toilet! I would probably be using a walker or having Back Surgery. I still have some treatment to go and I already feel 75% better. The very first time I tried the Spinal Decompression table. Thanks Progressive Rehab®!

I had instant relief from pain and I was able to stand without pain.

Shannon_Fisher.pngMy life before Spinal Decompression was terrible. Most of my life I have had back pain. I had come to Dr. Rick and my getting adjusted helped but the pain came back as the day went on. Dr. Rick suggested that I try the spinal Decompression. My first treatment, was a big success, I felt a significant difference. After a few more treatments my back pain did a total turn around. I am able to take my yoga classes again, enjoy activities outside with my friends. I have lived with back pain most of my adult life, recently I injured my back to the point where walking was a big problem for me. A friend referred me to Dr. Rick's office. I had never seen a chiropractor before, and was a little nervous about what was going to happen to me. The staff there assured that everything was going to be painless. I had enough pain in my back, so that made me feel better. Dr. Rick walked me through everything and explained the whole treatment to me. By the end of everything, I was pretty educated and comfortable with everything. Years from now, I am sure that if I had not gone to get help, I would have needed surgery on my back. That is something I would never want to do. I would like to suggest to all the people out there with back or neck pain to try Spinal Decompression. You will be amazed at the immediate results you feel, and also how much they care about you.

Thanks Progressive Rehab.

robert_mattiola.pngSpinal decompression has changed my life for the better. Let me tell you how, before this treatment I had limited range of motion with my neck. From my shoulder to my neck would go numb from time to time. As the months went on the numbness would become more frequent. Finally, I could not take it any longer. My brother referred me to Dr. Rick's office. I explained to the doctor that I have struggled with this pain for over ten years and I had tried everything, nothing worked. Rick explained to me about Spinal Decompression and I was excited to try this treatment and get my range of motion back. After my treatments I now have my complete range of motion back and the numbness is gone. I have gone back to the gym and started exercising again, along with playing sports with the guys. I have sleep throughout the night now and am a much happier person to the people around me. I would like other people to know that YES! Spinal Decompression does work and you can get your life back. No more sleepless nights from pain or being left out of fun activities because you cannot play. So give it a try it's changed my life for the better.

Salvatore A. Cimorelli



This Testimonial for Dr. Richard Racioppi, is being written with my almost disbelief and amazement as to, 'How Long I suffered with a Headache;' and then How Quickly Dr Richard Racioppi eliminated it.

My name is Salvatore A. Cimorelli and I'm also writing this because it should be known that after seeing numerous doctors, over a three year period, I feel like Dr. Rick may have performed the miracle which I was praying for. My prayers were answered by God, through Dr. Rick.

On the morning of December 24th, 2008, I had a Fall on a sloped parking pad, backward on black ice and my feet went up in the air. I had a warm zippered ski jacket with decent padding. When I landed, I hit my butt, my elbows and the back of my head. I was knocked unconscious for several minutes. There was bleeding from the back of my skull, and my right elbow in which case the bone could be seen. I should have gone to the hospital for a couple of stitches, but I didn't. Starting early in 2009, I felt as though a truck had hit me. As the trauma subsided, I started to develop pain, all over my body from my head to my feet, with more apparent signs of headaches and tinnitus. I had x-rays, CT scans and MRI's. I also visited the Paoli Hospital, a neurologist, a surgeon, and my primary physician. From the mid-2009 until mid-2010 I visited a chiropractor twice per month, who I had known from 1998 and who had the same last name as my maternal grandparents. I was totally familiar with Chiropractics for about 60 years; and had such great results that would take a volume to present; but not this time.

In mid-2010, after being unsuccessful in getting any/much relief from the headache that was in the occipital nerve going from my lower left head, to my left eye, and the pains in the rest of my body, I asked my primary physician for guidance to get help to relieve my incessant pains; since they were all affecting my pursuit of happiness. He referred me to Dr. D. Skubick, a neurologist of a different/special type, who used Prolotherapy for pain relief. When I was interviewed by Dr. D. Skubick, I had no hopes, and had no expectations of any relief. I saw him about twice per month, from mid-2010 to mid-2011. He was able to dramatically eliminate the pain from my neck down to my feet, which he suggested, was from short circuited nerves; but not the pain from my headache. Even my nose bleeds which started in early 2009 had subsided by the Spring of 2012. I had thought that picking my nose may have done it, but the nose bleeds started in some cases, by just lowering my head over the sink to wash my face. They were so bad I had to get medical help a few times.

Headaches were uncommon to me; since before then, I would have a headache, in about every year or two. During 2010, He sent me to a Pain management doctor, who offered to dull the nerve function or kill the nerve to eliminate it's function. I declined burning the nerve; and opted for the steroid injection that would be needed periodically. In Nov, 2011, I had cataract surgery.

In January of 2012, I was still left with the headaches and tinnitus; and in talking to Dr. Rick, who I had visited on occasion from about 2007, he suggested that he should have a chance to examine and treat me. I hesitantly agreed, since I was so dejected, from having had the headache for about three years. Dr. Rick adjusted me about once or twice per week from the end of January, 2012. By mid-April, one morning, as I worked on my laptop, I had an epiphany that was mind boggling. All of a sudden, I realized that my headache was gone. I think that I hadn't had the headache for a couple of days, but it didn't dawn on me that the headache was gone until I became surprisingly aware of it, all of a sudden. I wanted to scream and shout for joy. The next day I saw Dr. Rick and told him of my experienced epiphany; and he said, 'I'm not surprised.' Dr. Rick got rid of the three year long painful headache
