I want to start off by saying before seeing Dex here at Palma Ceia Chiropractic I was very skeptical of the whole chiropractor concept. On my first visit he was so welcoming. He felt my spine and saw how off balanced my hips were then did x-rays, all before actually adjusting me to make sure he knew what technique needed to be done and to make sure I had no internal injuries that needed further MRI views. Results came back that due to years of soccer and an injury making me wear an ankle boot, I had caused myself a slight scoliosis curve and my hips being WAY out of line. I had pinch nerves in my lower back a couple times a day and also had a hard time sleeping, driving, walking, any normal daily activity. He set me up with a 12 week program going 3 times a week with a half way point of x-rays to make sure things are going smoothly . I have now completed that program and am ASTONISHED to the changes in my body. I do not a single pinch never anymore, I can drive for hours and not be in pain, I can work lifting things, and my SLEEP is insanely improved. I never thought there would be a day I could sleep through a night and live without pain and Dex helped me achieve just that. He got my hips nearly perfectly in line and got my spine back to being straight getting rid of the scoliosis. Aside from physically helping me my mental state is better as well. Sleep being such a huge factor to that I now have more energy every day. The office staff as a whole are so welcoming they know every client by name and even get to know you on a personal level and make you feel at home there. I will be continuing to see Dex every month to keep maintenance on the work he has done. For anyone looking to fix back/hip/body pains I would 1000% over and over again recommend this staff and chiropractor to anyone.

Today was my first experience with Dr. Dex and I am so thankful I chose his practice. When in pain and feeling vunerable, his professionalism, advice, recommedations, expertise, calming nature, and assurance were invaluable. It's not just him either. Both of the women who were behind the desk were courteous and helpful both when I've called (multiple times) and before and after my appointment. I really cannot thank everyone here enough for how incredible my experience was. I truly feel I can trust them with my healing in such a scary time.

Went to Dr. Dex after many years of back pain and finally my hands went numb. Did not think Chiropractor was the way to go but my wife thought otherwise. I got sensation back in my hands after the first visit and now have virtually no pain even after standing or sitting for long periods of time. He is also very personable and the girls at the front desk are amazing. Always accommodating and have great customer service. Would recommend to anyone

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Alvarez. You are definitely in the best hands possible with him. He is a fantastic doctor and has helped me more than any other. He came highly recommended by a friend and now I know why. Beyond the superior level of care he provides, he is also a very cool guy.
