What our patients have to say

I walked into Kaizo Health with chronic back and neck pain that was interfering with my ability to work and get restful sleep. Dr. Sheldon and his team wasted no time in coming up with a treatment plan to start helping me feel better. I have been working with Matt during my sessions for some time now and I already notice a positive difference in the pain I experience daily. I went from being chronically fatigued and achy to having more stamina when I work. Welcoming, professional and convenient service.

I’m really pleased with the chiropractic and physical therapy I received post surgery at this Kaizo Health in Rockville Md. I was pretty locked up and weakened after surgery “down time” and Sheldon found 10 cracks my first visit. Matt was my dedicated PT person and is really flexible in adapting exercising to how you are feeling on a particular day. He keenly listens, remembers and cares about you and what you say, and readily identifies how far to push you, or what new exercise to introduce and when. He is very supportive and definitely encouraging “ you got this!” and also in addition to his Physical therapy certification and expertise is also a certified personal trainer. I appreciate Sheldon and Matt getting me feeling better and stronger and I think you will be in good hands with them too!

– Laura Mcl

I recommend coming to Kaizo health because they take their time getting to know you and what works for you. They have a lot of patience when it comes to your recovery , everything is on your time. I also recommend working with either Tati or Matt both are really great and funny! When they are making conversation with you it makes time go faster and it’s also better that way your not sitting in silence for your time being. The music is also an great add on to the place , it helps keep you dancing and moving.
