"Dr. Byall was very helpful in not only treating my immediate pain, but also showing me beneficial exercises that I could do at home or work to help me manage my problems on my own in order to reduce or eliminate future issues. He maintains a very inviting office with a helpful staff and I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends and family."
"Fort Wayne Spine and Joint is the place to go if you are looking for a team of people who truly care about you and helping you live pain free.I was diagnosed with severe scoliosis at the age of 6, a double "S" curved spine. By the time I was 12 my orthopedic doctor broke the news that surgery was inevitable and I had a full spinal fusion procedure (my entire spine fused with stainless steel rods). Back pain and stiffness is a part of my life.Now, in my thirties, I strive to find holistic approaches to pain management. Dr. Hiss, the massage therapist Sara, and the staff at Fort Wayne Spine and Joint have been an important part of this journey. Dr. Hiss is caring, knowledgeable, and passionate about what he does. Living with chronic pain and stiffness can be difficult physically, mentally, and emotionally. After an appointment with Dr. Hiss I feel this tension released. I feel balanced, as if I can see more clearly. There have been days (although few and far between if I see my chiropractor and massage therapist regularly) when my back pain feels unbearable and when I call, the office has scheduled me for an appointment that same day or first thing the following day, no questions asked. The office manager handles these calls with a sincere urgency and I'm sure Dr. Hiss has given up part of his lunch break to squeeze me in on a "bad pain day." There are no words to explain what this means to me. Good care and customer service is hard to come by these days and I am grateful for the team at Fort Wayne Spine and Joint. I highly recommend them."
"I struggled with hives for about 8 years. I had scars form itching so much. At times I couldn't sleep. I was taking multiple medications, at times I felt like I was at my wits end. A friend of my husband referred us to Dr. Hiss. My hives went away within 3 days! I don't have to take the medications. I only take my supplements. I am so thankful Dr. Hiss helped me! "
"I went into Fort Wayne Spine and Joint practically unable to walk. I would say I was at a nine on a pain scale of one to ten. I was hunched over with neither standing nor sitting providing any relief. Dr. Byall quickly identified the source of my pain and immediately had me doing exercises. With the adjustment and the exercises I was able to stand up straight and walk down the hallway in minimal pain. After that first exam I would say my pain had dropped to a three. I continued to do the exercises all week until my next appointment. At the next visit I had another adjustment and more exercises and this time I left with only a hint of pain. I would say a .5 on a one to ten scale. Dr. Byall's style was new to me. I have been going to chiropractors since I was a child and never had such great results. The difference is mixing the adjustment with the physical therapy. I'm writing this exam two weeks after my last appointment and I am STILL pain free!Thank you Dr. Byall. "
"I spent about six months convincing myself that time would heal my injuries. During that time, I began to accept that this would just have to be my new way of life. I was restricted in every aspect. Work, family time, even driving. I was not myself any more. During a vacation from work, I sat on my couch crying because the pain was just too much to bear any longer. I picked up my phone and began to ask friends and co-workers where to go to receive relief. Dr Byall was recommended by a trusted co-worker so I called. They were able to set me up with an appointment the very next day! From the first phone call to the last visit, I was absolutely blown away by the attention paid to patient satisfaction. The entire staff was phenomenal! From the smallest things like lending me a hair tie when I forgot mine, to the exercises I was given to perform at home to help me progress faster, my comfort and improvement was always a priority. Dr Byall dedicated the time to educate me in addition to performing the adjustments. He was cautious in the beginning as I could not even make it thru my first appointment without being brought to tears. He recognized when to push and when to pull back, "tweaking" each visit to my ever changing level of pain. I am happy to say that after following thru with my appointments and committing to the at home exercises, I have been released and am living without pain! Thank you for everything!"
"When I pulled a ligament in my foot Dr. Byall was so helpful in my quick recovery. His treatments were the only thing that eased the pain and got me on the road to recovery. I had visited my MD and Ortho doctor without any help. Dr. Byall instead started to bring immediate results. Within a few weeks I'm back to normal. Thank you Dr. Byall. "
"The experience and care I receive every time I walk in the door of FWSJ is one of a kind. I cannot begin to express how wonderful I feel every time I walk out the door! If I ever have an ache or pain, I know that I will be in good hands with Dr. Hiss. As a Crossfit Athlete, my body goes through a lot of wear and tear, and I can always count on speedy recovery with any kind hurdle that may come may way with his care. The first place I always call when I need an adjustment is Fort Wayne Spine & Joint. Thanks to them, I am able to keep moving and perform at the level I’m at now."
"I have been receiving chiropractic adjustments since 2013 and have never felt any better. I switched to seeing Dr. Byall in March of 2016 hoping a second opinion might help. 6 sessions later and I am being released as a patient, something I never thought would happen. I've never felt better and I can't thank Dr. Byall and the Fort Wayne Spine and Joint team enough. I won't hesitate to recommend them to my friends and family."
"I had severe arm pain. Dr. Hiss has helped me 100%! I am feeling much more normal now. It is very nice to come to Dr. Hiss, everyone is so nice to me there. "
"At age 65 my knees began hurting. I walk several miles a day and continued doing so. As the pain became worse a friend recommended going to see Dr. Hiss. My first reaction was no way as I had worked for over 30 years for physicians (GP's) and 5 years for orthopedic surgeons. I was always told that a chiropractor was not a good choice.I am happy to say that I took said advice and after a few months of treatment with Dr. Hiss, my knees were pain free. And I never took any pain meds. I am so glad that I took a chance and now I go to Dr. Hiss every 4 to 6 weeks as a preventative measure to keep spine in line.My story has two parts. At time of treatment for my knees, Dr. Hiss talked to me about the anti-inflammatory diet. This has changed my life. I have struggled with an autoimmune disease, ulcerative colitis, for over 30 years. I will never go back to eating the way I used to again. Before I started the anti-inflammatory way of life, I was told I needed to go on very strong expensive medications or infusion drugs. I feel better, my weight is down 20 pounds. My next goal is to try to get off the only medication I still take for UC but if I am unable to, no problem. Life is good! I am so happy that I found Dr. Hiss....even though I have known him since he was just a little guy playing with my son. "
"My name is Richard. I am 63 years old and been going to Chiropractors for 40 years. I was at home and stooped down to repair the tiller and a disc slipped in my back. I couldn't put pressure on my right leg. I never had this problem before. I visited my regular Chiropractor and just wasn't getting any relief. Our son has been seeing Dr. Hiss for some time. He suggeted I go see Dr. Hiss. Dr. Hiss took the time to show me and explain what was going on in my back. With Dr. Hiss' treatment and therapy, he got me back to where I could go back to work. He explained how I could help myself in the future with exercises that help me stretch my back. He also explained how your diet can affect the infammation in your back. I would recommend Dr. Hiss to my friends and family. Thank you Dr. Hiss."
"Dr. Byall is amazing! I have peripheral polyneuropathy and he helps me get relief that my medications do not provide."
"I had always been a bit unsure of chiropractors. However, after months of dealing with pain in my leg and back that had started to affect my quality of life. I decided to make an appointment. Dr. Byall spent lots of time listening to me describe my concern, asking questions that encouraged ever more detail, listening carefully, never rushing and he was always on time. He explained what he perceived to be the problem and how he would work to remedy it. Over the course of treatment, with exercises and manipulations, the knee pain disappeared, the back pain lessened, and then it was gone! I was able to resume my previous activities: walking, hiking, water aerobics, and yoga. I continue with the exercises, less than 10 minutes per day, and I am mindful of certain movements. When I have a flare up, I understand what is happening with my body and I know what to do offset it and I can check in with Dr. Byall when needed. I have my life back."
"I first saw Dr. Byall because I was having trouble walking due to my feet. I was very skeptical about a chiropractor but he would be my last chance since my family doctor couldn't help. That feeling changed after the first visit. He took the time and listened to the situation with my feet and how important that I'd be able to walk right for work. He performed the adjustment and explain in detail of the reason I'm having the issue. I felt immediate relief after the first session. I was grateful for him and helping me feel better. I have recommended Dr. Byall to a lot of coworkers because he is the best doctor and he knows his work. He makes a real effort to know his patients issues. I've seen Dr. Byall for my shoulder also that I've hurt years ago. I have seen him lately for my carpel tunnel because it's been flaring up lately. I did not want to do the shots in my wrists again. After the first session with him for my wrists I felt relief. He is a great chiropractor and I plan on seeing him for now on because he's so nice and funny. It's a joy to see him because he has a great personality. He is very easy to talk to and he doesn't judge. Dr. Byall is a FANTASTIC chiropractor. Thank you Dr. Byall for all that you have done for me."
