Dr. DelFavero – Not Your Average Chiropractor


Dr. Niklaus DelFavero has earned my highest recommendation.  In today’s health care environment, it is rare to find a healthcare professional so truly invested in his/her patients.  Too often it seems the key to a doctor’s financial success is to see as many patients as possible, bill insurance companies as much as possible, and invest as little as possible on each patient visit.  If I sound harsh, just recall your last doctor or hospital experience.  (Continue Reading)

My Shoulder Injury Finally Resolved – Thanks Dr. DelFavero

shoulder injury leftOn June 9, 2015, I fell in a bathtub on a business trip in Houston, Texas.  I broke my left shoulder and tore the left rotator cuff underneath the break. It was a nightmare fall.

I struggled day and night with excruciating pain, which intensified during and after physical therapy treatments (Continue Reading).

Golfer’s Elbow

In 2005, after too much heavy yardwork and long keyboard sessions at work, I developed what my doctor thought was tendonitis (golfer’s elbow). Since then, I went to five orthopedic surgeons, five physical therapists, two acupuncturists and two massage therapists and spent a lot of money looking for some answers. I found little relief and was about to give up hope of ever being able to perform simple tasks around the house and at work without pain. Then a friend made a casual suggestion about trying her sports chiropractor, Dr. Nik DelFavero[Continue Reading]
