PATIENT REVIEWS

“I came here looking for alternative care to drugs and surgery for my wrist and shoulder pain. I've been seeing Dr. Licata for about 3 months now and have noticed significant improvement in those areas and an overall improvement in my well being. Dr. Licata is genuinely concerned about his patients and gives everyone 110%. He'll tell you straight out if he can help you or not.

“I'm a school teacher and about 2-3 weeks ago I picked up the flu from my students. The headaches and no energy and unrestful sleep just kept lingering. I realized that it was not the flu symptoms but that I needed an alignment from Dr. Licata. After the alignment 2 days ago I immediately felt better and can sleep much better. I'm going back today to get double checked. I'm on the trail to 100% energy and life again. No more delay!”

“Dr. Licata truly changed my life! The first time I visited Dr. Licata's offices I had been suffering from continuous twitching in the right side of my neck. After my initial visit I noticed a tremendous difference in my neck. Today, the pain has entirely disappeared and I have not felt this great in a very long time.”

“When my grandson was 6 months old he was hospitalized twice for dehydration from vomiting from acid reflux. Dr. Licata adjusted him and there has been no more trouble since then. He is now 1 year old.”
Grandmother
“First went to Dr. Licata after my wife went for back pain and was improving. I decided to go because I have been living with hip and shoulder pain for awhile and also acid reflux. I was very active in sports and outdoor activities all my life with of course injuries along the way. But I must admit since I have been coming to Dr Licata for the past two months my life has dramatically changed. I no longer take any meds on a daily basis and my pain is minimal, I would like to thank you again for making life easier.”
T.S., 36, Arcadia, CA
“I've had pain in my shoulder for over 30 days. In less than 15 minutes Dr. Licata helped me to have 90% less pain and 90% full range of motion.”

“Licata relieved my pain with just a slight touch behind my lower left ear. Migraines and headaches quickly went away. I began to notice many other relief such as plantar fascia pains went away, TMJ is relieved and more energy and clearer mind.”

“I am SO thankful that Dr. Licata came into my life! I suffered with back problems for over twenty years. I was having physical therapy, injections in my spine and regular chiropractic appointments. I was told the last resort was neck surgery. I was totally against surgery and thought I would just have to live with the pain. I was taking strong pain medication daily that I knew was not healthy and then along came Dr. Licata! After Dr. Licata corrected my spine three times, maybe four times, and I felt relief I hadn't felt in years! I am no longer taking pain medication!” “I am very pleased with the results from my chiropractic care received from Dr. Licata. After two months of care, my headaches have vanished, soreness in the lower back has almost been relieved, and my sciatica has not returned.” “I had severe sciatic pain shooting down my right leg, making it very difficult and extremely painful to sleep in my own bed, walking, and even dressing myself. After just my first visit, I felt a lot of relief. After finishing total my specific adjustment program, I have NO sciatic pain. I can now sleep in my own bed, walk walking straight up and dress myself with no pain. I would recommend Dr. Licata to anyone who is having any kind of back, neck problems or pain.”

“I came to see Dr. Licata because I had chronic neck pain, trouble turning my head, numbness in my left hand, and migraines with regularity. I had these symptoms for YEARS! Before coming to see Dr. Licata, I went to see an orthopedic doctor and he said I was fine. I took Advil regularly and tried exercises. After I started care here at the Licata Clinic, the numbness in my hand was fixed after the first visit!” “Nucca has been a physical life-line for me. I came to expect, unconsciously, that I'd have to live with spine and muscle pain for the rest of my life. Now, the majority of ALL pain has subsided! I can live a very active life now. And times of meditation are no longer met with uncomfortable shifts and awkward postures. I'm very thankful for this form of healing and I'm indebted to Dr. Licata and the Licata Clinic!”

“Dr. Licata and his staff are great. I went there for some issues I was having from a Lupus Diagnosis. Dr. Licata was able to get rid of my bone pain, headaches and overall achy feeling from the Lupus. I was real skeptical about NUCCA but now I am a believer. I will forever be grateful for the relief that I received. It has been about a year now since I have seen him and I still feel great. Thank you!”
C.F., 39, Duarte, CA
“I came into this place with a lot of head trauma from since I was a little kid, brain fog, fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, body pains, low energy, and bad moods and after a week I started to feel progressively better in a way that I have never felt before. I have been going for 6 months now and continue going. It’s a small price to pay for your health.”
B.C., 27, Dancer, Alhambra, CA
“Not your typical chiropractic experience! Dr. Licata has been treating me for about 6 months and the results have been tremendous. Not only did my immediate neck pain dissipate, but I also noticed a marked improvement in other areas. And I'm a better wife & mom for it! Thanks, Dr. Licata!”
A.P, 38, Pasadena, CA
“The reason I came to see Dr. Licata was because I had severe neck pain and I couldn’t sleep. I have lived with this condition most of my life, have been treated for depression, and I have had two nose surgeries. Coming to see Dr. Licata has been life changing for me! I now sleep a full seven hours. I feel like I am in my 20’s again!” “My life dramatically changed for the better when I started seeing Dr. Licata. I have suffered from chronic pain for many years. The mind-blowing results that I have gotten from my treatments have made me a happier and PAIN-FREE person. I AM NO LONGER IN PAIN!!!!”
A.V., 31, Los Angeles
“I'm so thankful for the help I have received so far from Dr. Licata. I have only needed one adjustment so far as that adjustment has held. Already my neck & head pain are 95% better. I can walk easier & stand up straighter. My memory has improved also. I know my body is now able to do what it was designed to do...heal its self because my atlas is aligned correctly.”
L.H., 76, North Hills, CA
“I came to see Dr. Licata for severe neck and shoulder pain. Before seeing Dr. Licata I had seen several chiropractors and doctors about this problem. After seeing doctor Licata for several months, my pain disappeared. I am in a much better mood. The pain no longer rules my daily life.”

“Dr. Licata is amazing. I used to suffer from migraines and from severe allergies. Thanks to Dr. Licata I no longer get migraines and my allergies are gone. I was never truly able to have a normal live, always taking medicines and taking allergy shots every month. Now, I live a happy and normal live, I get to do everything and anything I want. I have been able to go on some of my dream trips.”
E.B., Woodland Hills, CA
“I started coming into this practice over a year ago and haven't had a migraine since. I can't thank Dr. Licata enough.”
S.C., 36, Marketing, Pasadena, CA
“Several months ago, I suffered from severe migraines. A friend of mine suggested to me to see Dr. Licata. I was skeptical at first, because I did not see the correlation between migraines and a chiropractor. I went anyways and discovered that my migraines were largely caused to the fact that I was leaning heavily to one side of my body causing the flow to my brain to not function properly. It has been three months now and I have not had one migraine since my first visit.”
M.B., 24, Youth Pastor, Pasadena, CA
“The reason I came to see Dr. Licata was because I had hand pain, hands falling asleep and migraine headaches. I had suffered with these conditions for four years. I had been seen by a regular doctor who tested me for arthritis. He then thought it was carpel tunnel and I was told to wear hand braces which made it worse. Since I have been treated by Dr. Licata, my hand pain has completely eliminated and I have very few headaches.”
A.V.
“Dr. Licata has been working with our kids (ages 3 and 5) for the past year and has truly aided in their health and development. As young boys, they frequently fall and injure themselves, and because of Dr. Licata's work, they have been able to be in alignment and at their best. Before being treated, our sons had frequent colds, ear infections, allergies, and now I cannot remember the last time they were sick!”
J.O. 32, Teacher, Pasadena, CA
“I came to Dr. Licata April 2012 desperate for help. He was my last hope. I had been to many other doctors through my insurance and none of them understood what was wrong with me. I felt like they did not believe me half of the time because the tests would return as "normal."

 A couple months later I was starting to feel normal again without even realizing it. I am so thankful I found Dr. Licata's clinic. He really saved my life.”

" I started going to Dr Licata with a left side of my body that was so out of wack and painful. I tried everything before coming here, but with Dr. Licata's help, I am feeling strong and have a new body. His kind, receptive work has saved my body.
Francene Selkirk
Migraines, back pain, and neck pain “I had many migraines very often, but after awhile in Licata I very rarely have the migraines. And I find myself standing up straight and tall, before, I was always slouched down when standing. I also had much back pain and neck pain that got in the way of school, but it is now mostly gone."
David M., Painter, San Dimas
"I started experiencing lower back pain after giving birth to my first child. I have been in pain for almost 9 years. Until my dentist, DR. Goei, referred me to Dr. Licata. Dr Goei noticed that my posture was not aligned and recommended I see Dr. Licata. I started feeling immediate relief after about the third visit. It's been almost 5 months that I've been under Dr Licata's care and I now live pain free!!! I feel amazing and full of energy!!! My 9 years old son ,Diego, has been diagnosed with ADHD and Sensory Integration Disorder. He was taking prescribed medication to help him focus at school. Diego began experiencing severe anxiety that was making my husband and I extremely worried. Dr Licata recommended a visit with him and immediately after a few sessions, Diego stopped feeling anxious!!! We stopped the prescribed medication and we have seen increased focus in Diego's daily activities!!!"
SOLI BAUTISTA
"I am thrilled by the progress I've made thanks to Dr Licata and his dedicated professionalism!  I have been off almost all my medications! The times of feeling pain, being side lined by asthma, and paralyzed by migraines were becoming very rare. NUCCA is the answer!! I have great hope in my future health due to the incredible results I've received through NUCCA care. Just the fact that I'm able to go through DAYS, not hours or a day, but several days without pain is something I never thought was possible!"

"Watching my son’s gradual improvement and confidence in hoping again, along with feeling better physically out ways the negative words from other health providers “to just accept there is little to be done for your future”. James acknowledges he has health issues that are irreversible, but since focus on this spinal health, the other issues rule his body less. He literally stands taller and prouder."
Jennifer Bond, Mom
"I was born with many defects that misaligned my body over time.  I've seen Dr. Licata for about 3 months with no misalignment. So far, I don't have any more ringing noises in my left ear(as my spine was tilted towards my left side), my digestive system is working better(bowel movements are not as watery and my stomach doesn't get as upset as before), I have more energy (I can work longer w/o getting as tired), and I don't have back or hip pain. NUCAA has saved me..."

" I had been suffering from several medical problems: Fibromyalgia, neck pain, backaches, migraines etc... But ever since I started Dr. Licata's treatment my quality of life changed. I am able to spend time with family and friends. I CAN DANCE, CLEAN MY HOUSE and TAKE CARE OF MY SONS. I could not do any of these activities before his treatment. Yea!!!! this is so awesome!!! As, I never thought, I would reach this point because two years ago, I was very sick and totally desperate for medical help."

"I came to see Dr. Licata for back pain and multiple migraines (weekly). After having had back problems from multiple car accidents and the migraine history, I was worried that Dr. Licata might not be able to help me. After going over my history and concerns, we put together a plan to get me on track. After the first few adjustments, my back pain was virtually gone!!! Then after a few more adjustments, bye bye migraines. It has taken over a year but my back pain and migraines are gone. Thanks to Dr. Licata!!!"
JEANNETTE TRACEY
" I no longer have neck or shoulder pain, nighttime cough, dizziness, nausea...my overall health and attitude have improved immensely. NUCCA care has also helped with my TMJ symptoms. Dr. Licata and his staff are professional and dedicated to their patients. I am so grateful for Dr. Licata's care and expertise."

The Lame Shall Dance To Dr Licata You helped me, Doc, to overcome my fears. Each passing day was full of tears. “I can’t do this! I can’t do that!”. I wore this phrase upon my hat. By discouragement was I pursued; A chain whose links would come unglued. I felt like a tooth hanging from a thread. My hope for health was almost dead. I thought that I would never change, But with your help I grew in range. “I can do this!”, I now would say, as my repertoire of fun grew each day. Genuflecting to the Lord, Sitting long enough to get bored, Tying my shoes, Trimming toe nails; Little victories that no one hails. I will always cherish the day I DANCED again without dismay! I learned to rejoice in each conquest. You did your part, Doc, And God did the rest! Now I’m full of hope again. God’s got my back. Praise the Lord. Amen.

“I came to see Dr. Licata for my generalized body pain. I have had pain all over my body, especially my low back and upper back, from taking care of my son. Dr. Licata not only helped me with my pain, but he also gave me quality care. He treated me like a human being and helped me when others could not. My pain has improved, I feel better, and I am grateful for it!”
