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.”
L.O., 69, Chino Hills, CA
“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.”

“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.”

"…headaches have VANISHED." “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.”
Robert M., Retired Elected Representative
"When I came to see Dr. Licata, I had extreme lower back pain to the extent that I could not sit, walk, or stand for more than a couple of minutes at a time. It started about two and a half months ago and lasted a couple of weeks with no relief except for what I could find in over-the-counter pain medication and through stretching exercises. Now, I have more mobility. Walking is easier. Standing is easier. And I can move more freely. Dr. Licata and his staff are polite, courteous, and friendly. I would recommend him to others because of his ability to relate to you personally and make you feel comfortable. He walks you through every step of the way and doesn't assume anything."

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.

"Cuando vine a Licata, mi mano derecha estaba dormida. Despues solo sentia los dedos dormidos, pero hoy no se me duerme nada gracias a la ayuda del Dr. Licata. Otro punto que me ayudo, es que estaba mas alerta y me gusto mucho porque veia cosas que antes no veia. Estoy feliz compartiendo esto con ustedes ya que estoy feliz. Mi vida cambio mucho. No es que estaba viejita, es que estaba desaliniada que no es lo mismo. Dios los Bendiga. Dr. Gracias."

“Since I began treatment with Dr. Licata, not only has my neck and arm pain virtually disappeared, but I have also experienced dramatic relief from nausea, dizziness, numbness in my arm, sinus pain and congestion, heartburn, and a deep, wracking nighttime cough. My thinking is clearer and I have a calm sense of well-being. The care and treatment that I have received from Dr. Licata is literally changing my life.”

“I have a history of chronic headaches. The headaches became so severe that I couldn't drive my car more than five minutes without getting a headache. I tried several chiropractors in my area, with no success. I contacted Dr. Licata and decided to make the commitment to make a two hour drive from Palm Springs for treatment. After my third visit, my neck stabilized and I have been almost pain free ever since. I am thankful to have found Dr. Licata and his staff.”

"Wow! My upper back pain became such a normal part of my life that I believed it was my lot in life to be in daily discomfort. I also had severe chronic sinus pain, TMJ, ears ringing, low back pain. Dr. Licata's treatments have massively improved my quality of life as a wife and mom of four! I'm not in continual discomfort, which has made it impossible to become cranky. The crankiness was even worse than the pain because it involved those I loved the most. I feel great! Really, all the symptoms I came in with are gone or very close to it."

“I was in chronic pain all over my body especially in my lower back and abdomen region. My digestive system and my neck were also affected. I did not enjoy exercising and felt hopeless. I had tried various other methods of healing via physical therapy, exercise and dieting which only had temporary relief. After seeing Dr. Licata my body responded as I started getting adjustments and I started to heal. I feel like and am a completely different person. The healing in my body has changed my outlook on life, spiritual, mental, and physical.”
Suzanne G.
" 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."
Susan Estrada
" 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 the first few adjustments, my back pain was virtually gone!!! Then after a few more adjustments, bye bye migraines. "
John Noriega
"Thinking back four weeks ago, I never truly understood how headaches and migraines controlled and inhibited my life. I am a new person, virtually pain free. I look forward to lunch with friends and future family outings."

"I had an epidural scheduled, but with some prompting from a friend, I went to see Dr. Licata and have been under his care since. Dr. Licata helped me by being so caring and professional. I knew he was the right doctor because he was addressing all my concerns and answered all my questions. He also studied my case very carefully in order to provide the best treatment possible for me."

"After presenting my case to Dr. Licata I was a little skeptical. In a very short amount of time I have gone from having chronic headaches, severe debilitating pain, and depression to feeling like a million bucks. I am also usually sick ALL THE TIME. I have not been sick for 4 months, nor have I had one single headache for almost 2 months. I can't thank Dr. Licata enough and wish I knew about him and his practice sooner. It truly has changed my life."

“3 years ago, I was thrown into a seizure like fit. From but was in a conscious state the whole time. After 5 EEGs with nothing seeming to be wrong neurologically, I was told that it was all in my head. A few months ago I was introduced to NUCCA treatment and Dr. Licata and with his help, I am doing much better."
