Margie Ellington
I came to Rockingham Chiropractic seeking for relief for my migraine headaches. I have not had a migraine headache since coming and my shoulder pain is gone!


Virginia Watlington
I found out about Rockingham Chiropractic after reading an article in the newspaper about chiropractic care. I was having a number of problems such as neck pain, shoulder pain, and general pain in my joints. I was also having migraine headaches. After I was evaluated, I found that my problems were contributed to misalignments in my spine particularly in my neck. After a few weeks I experience a tremendous reduction in my pain levels and after a month all of the pain was gone! Dr. Thompson always has time to answer my questions and make recommendations so that I can get the most out of my chiropractic care. I admire that way the staff greets everyone with a smile and calls you by name. As for me, chiropractic is a pill free way of staying healthy!

As a pastor, I witness in hospitals various health conditions that are treated with the usual ineffective medical treatments which focuses on symptoms rather than the source. To make a long story short, the providence of God allowed me to come across chiropractic, especially the finest in the field (Dr. Thompson and the staff at Rockingham Chiropractic Center). The benefits of the adjustments were obvious even after only a couple of adjustments. I am reminded in Psalm 103:14 how God "knoweth our frame." I thank God for the discovery of chiropractic to help keep my "frame" the way it should be.

I went to Rockingham Chiropractic Center because I had suffered with neck and back pain for many years. No matter what I took for the pain, it just would not completely go away. Yes, I got some relief from the medicine but the pain always came back. After my new patient exam, I found out that my problems were stemming from misalignments of my neck and back. Dr. Thompson explained to me that no amount of medication was going to correct this problem. Shortly after my first adjustment I could tell a difference. My neck and back felt much better. I even noticed that I had less headaches and sinus problems. Every week I feel better and better with each adjustment! The adjustments have even helped my energy levels and I even feel younger!


Bonnie Boswell
In 1990, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. For 19 years, I have experienced a tremendous amount of pain in my muscles and joints. It had gotten to the point where I could not get up and down from a seated position, or walk without experiencing a great deal of pain. In addition to muscle and joint pain, I felt as if my spine and pelvic bones were becoming arthritic and I no longer seemed to have any fluidity of movement. I feared that if left untreated, this pain would only increase with age. After a few adjustments, I started to feel better. I still had pain, but it was much less than before I had started receiving chiropractic care. Now, after receiving chiropractic care for a few weeks, I have noticed that my pain has progressively lessened and I feel better than I have in years. I thank Dr. Thompson and his staff for all the assistance they have given me on my journey to obtaining better health.


Danny Gillespie
When I started coming to Rockingham Chiropractic Center, I was suffering from lower back pain. Now I am able to move more freely without the usual pain. My posture has improved drastically since I have been coming to Dr. Thompson (as noticed by my family). The staff is always pleasant to deal with and eager to help in anyway possible. I wish I had come to Rockingham Chiropractic years ago!


Stan Corum
I was having a lot of pain in my lower back which was radiating down my leg. I was advised by a friend to give Dr. Thompson a call. After he took x-rays of my spine he showed me that I had compression of my sciatic nerve. I had been walking with a cane prior to seeing Dr. Thompson. Just a few weeks after I started my adjustments, I hung the cane on the wall and have not used it since!


Mary Boyd
For years I lived with back, neck, and leg pain. Headaches were a part of my daily life.... I had them all the time. Even though I had been to doctors, I still had daily pain and figured this would be something I would have to learn to live with. I took almost anything that would alleviate the pain, not knowing the damage it was doing to my body. Then Dr. Thompson visited my place of employment and did a spinal/posture screening. I went in for a consultation and the rest is history. Ever since I have been going to Dr. Thompson I am virtually pain free. I cannot begin to tell you how wonderful it is to not have pain anymore. Tingling sensations in my legs no longer keep me up at night. I sleep like a baby now. I rarely have headaches at all anymore and do not have to take pills for relief. I enjoy my freedom from pain and have utilized what Dr. Thompson and his staff have taught me about good spinal care, nutrition, and exercise to keep my spine and body healthy. I do not think that there is any other place I could go where I could get the care and education that I have received from Dr. Thompson and his staff at Rockingham Chiropractic Center.


Verne Scales
Before I came to see Dr. Thompson my back pain was constant and at times it was so bad I could hardly stand up, but now I have no problems! Standing up for long periods of time no longer bother me and my health is much better as well. Thank you Dr. Thompson!


Bonnie Hughes
When I began chiropractic treatment I had TMJ pain so badly I could hardly open my mouth wide enough to eat certain foods or even to talk on some days without excruciating pain. A short time after Dr. Thompson started to adjust me, I am basically pain free now! My overall health has improved tremendously as well. Thanks so much to Dr. Thompson and his staff for changing my life by not only adjustments but also their support and encouragement at each visit!


Stephanie Stevens
I had been having neck and lower back pain for quite some time which interfered with my daily routine. It was not very long after my first adjustment that I began to feel a huge improvement. I love the way the adjustments make me feel. My experience with Rockingham Chiropractic Center has been life changing and feel that my health has improved since coming to Dr. Thompson. I feel wonderful - much happier and healthier! Thank you Dr. Thompson and staff, you all are superstars!


Bill and Mary Moody
We both feel much better since we have been getting adjusted. We feel as if chiropractic care is the only way to go as it helps keep your body and its integrated systems in tune for optimum health!


Deborah Heinecker
Prior to becoming a patient of Dr. Matt Thompson, I suffered from back and neck pain along with chronic sciatica. I had tried physical therapy and various other modalities. Nothing provided me with long-term relief until Dr. Thompson began treating me. I am now essentially pain free and feeling great!


Linda Barko
I am quite sure that Rockingham Chiropractic Center is the reason that I am not wheelchair bound at this time. My body is happy when it is being adjusted regularly and I rarely get colds or infections because the regular adjustments help keep my body functioning at its best. I can continue to teach exercise classes, go to yoga, play with my 7 grandchildren and volunteer. Without Rockingham Chiropractic Center I would not be pain free ..... hooray for Rockingham Chiropratic Center and the staff!! Blessings to them.


Frances Paschal
I did not realize the condition that my spine was in until I saw Dr. Thompson. He has corrected my spine and I am genuinely grateful!


Howard Bigelow
One's health is no doubt the most important aspect of their life. Once I retired, I have seen my health improve. As a person ages this is really a huge statement! The improvement that I claim about my health is due to Dr. Thompson, my chiropractor. Dr. Thompson has shown me by keeping my spine in proper alignment, my overall health will benefit in a very positive manner. I am very pleased with Dr. Thompson and I must also comment on his staff, they are always professional and make everybody feel like family.


Bob Wickless
We all accumulate damage to our bodies over the years - a childhood bike wreck, falls while ice-skating, years of stress and strain driving cars, using computers, and working long hours at our jobs. Much of the damage is absorbed by our spine causing damage. We tend to absorb them and move on. I had no idea the damage such events had done until I consulted with Dr. Matt Thompson at Rockingham Chiropractic. What I did know was that I felt less agile, had developed lots of back and neck pain, and felt like I could not stand up straight anymore. I suspected these issues were not just going to go away with time. A quick review of x -rays with Dr. Thompson revealed the degeneration that years of wear and tear had caused. Dr. Thompson mapped out a treatment plan to get me back on course. So, to make the proverbial long story short: after my adjustments my spinal problems have not only improved, but were largely gone. Go see him. Dr. Thompson and his capable and caring staff are ready to help you feel better!


Katie Gunn
Prior to chiropractic care, I had pain in my upper and lower back throughout the day. I had received chiropractor care before at a different office, but the treatments were only helping a little. Finally, I decided to try Dr. Thompson at Rockingham Chiropractic Center. Just a few weeks later, the pain in my back had decreased tremendously. I feel better than I have ever felt and I now look forward to my adjustments!


Adam Gaspar
When I first started looking into chiropractic care, I considered myself to have the "usual" amount of soreness in my back. It was not that great of pain but I still wanted to make sure that everything was okay especially since I had fractured a vertebrae in my lower back a few years ago. After finding out that I did have misalignments of my spine mostly in my lower back, I decided that it was a priority to get this corrected. After a few weeks of the adjustments not only did my back feel much better, but the adjustments allowed me to do normal physical activity and athletics with no pain and with better recovery time. It has freed me up to enjoy working outside, playing sports, and other such things that require my body to be above "average" condition.


Nathan Rich
Twelve years ago I was told by my medical doctor that I had all the systems of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had lived with joint swelling and pain most of the time. I was on prednisone and Hydroxychloroquine. I knew that even though the drugs were helping with the pain, it was causing damage to my body. I went to a health fair at work and was introduced to Rockingham Chiropractic Center. After a short time of treatment by Dr. Thompson, I was able to get off the prednisone and hydroxychloroquine. When I went back to see my Rheumatoid doctor, he said to me that my Rheumatoid arthritis was in remission!


Tony Pegram
Before I started seeing Dr. Thompson at Rockingham Chiropractic Center I used to have injections in my lower back a few times a year. Since I have been coming to Dr. Thompson I have seen a tremendous amount of improvement not only in my lower back but all over my body. I appreciate the caring staff of Rockingham Chiropractic Center and Dr. Thompson.


Melanie Thompson
At 19 years of age, I was involved in an automobile accident. For many years I had suffered from neck and back pain as a result of the accident. I decided to give chiropractic a try, so I called Rockingham Chiropractic Center to set up an appointment to see what they could do for me. After my adjustments, I can now do my job as a dental hygienist with no pain in my back or neck. I am so thankful for Dr. Thompson!


Debbie Strader
I first met Dr. Thompson when he spoke to the Covington Memorial Church Wesleyan Women. He reminded me that my body is fearfully and wonderfully made. With proper care, the body is capable of amazing healing powers. Being in the workforce for over 30 years, I have made good use of the time and have managed to do a lot of “wear and tear” to my spine. From the very first treatment, I noticed an immediate difference in the way my back felt and the ease with which I could twist and turn -- and quite simply -- just live without pain or stiffness. I look forward to each of my visits. Dr. Thompson is a caring individual who takes delight in his work. His staff is courteous and FUN to be around!


Tom Pruitt
After developing some back pain, I spoke with a friend of mine who referred me to Dr. Thompson. I was initially skeptical and offered some challenge to Dr. Thompson. He encouraged me to stick with the program. I’m glad I did. Dr. Thompson has proven to be flexible and knowledgeable in dealing with my condition which has been dramatically improved. Dr. Thompson listens to his patience and adjust treatment accordingly.


Mike Caillier
When I first came to Dr. Thompsons office, I had severe back pain and could hardly turn my head. Two other Dr's told me I would probably need surgery to "fix" my problem. After being adjusted for a few weeks, I started to notice I could move my head more with less pain. My lower back was starting to feel better as well. I was able to stop taking all the medicine I was on for temporary relief. I have been a regular patient for over a year now and I feel great! Thank you for helping me on my road to recovery and a better life.

"Upper back and shoulder pain resulting in frequent headaches gradually became part of my daily life during my 25 years as an FBI agent. Years on the SWAT team and hundreds of arrests had taken their toll. I gave Dr. Thompson a try and the shackles of pain began to loosen within one month. Dr. Thompson made it possible for me to fully enjoy retirement, pain-free, and headache free for the first time in my life!"
