Has the world gotten you down? Well… pick yourself up with Dr. Rasmussen!

I arrived at Dr. Rasmussen’s office due to a very serious injury to my lower spine (lumbar region). He gave a very thorough evaluation with x-rays and MRI scans. My diagnosis was an aggravating curvature in the lumbar region with BULGING DISCS, along with a complicating injury to my neck region (-2 degrees) with BULGING DISCS and TMJ persisting.

The seriousness of my injury consisted of two vehicles (6000 lbs.) traveling about 45 MPH into my stopped vehicle, unknowingly. Amazingly enough, the DRX 9000 decompression machine reduced my alarming pain to hardly nothing (minor discomfort). Within a few months of treatment, my SCIATICA pain from hip to knee has disappeared!

With his continued three day a week therapy, I have migrated back into life again and only see him now just once every 6-8 weeks!

Thanks so much Dr. Rasmussen.

Dr. Rasmussen has been such a great find in American Canyon. He treated me on my lower back pain, tense shoulders, slouching back, and even my wrist pain. It took a couple weeks, but I don't have shooting pain from the lower back all the way down my legs anymore! Beyond that, he is incredibly caring, warm, and friendly. When I brought my 86 year old grandmother in to treat her low back and neck pain, he not only gave her a sliding fee scale, but more importantly, he was super patient, made her feel comfortable, and addressed her problems. He also always takes the time to explain things as he is working through them. I really enjoyed coming into to see Dr. Rasmussen and plan on continuing to do so for occasional adjustments.

I have been very pleased with my recent experiences with Dr. Rasmussen; I went to him with severe lower back and leg pain. It was my first time ever visiting a chiropractor. I found him to be friendly, warm and very professional! He was great about explaining what was causing my pinched nerve. His treatment was gentle and effective. He showed me some home exercises and talked about my posture at work which was very helpful in reducing my pain. His office and staff are first class; I especially appreciate their evening hours since I don't get off work until 6:00pm. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Rasmussen for his professionalism and effectiveness in getting me out of pain.

I have been going to Dr. Rasmussen for several years and he is by far the best chiropractor I have ever been too. He has helped me go from having constant back pain due to years of sports, to feeling great. He is extremely knowledgeable and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a chiropractor.

Dr. Rasmussen is a great chiropractor! He is very knowledgeable, caring, and professional. He has really helped me with my neck and arm pain. Not only does he treat me, but he treats my son's as well. He is awesome with them and has really given them a positive experience with chiropractic care.

He and his office staff have been great from day one. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone in search of a great chiropractor.

I can't say enough about Dr. Rasmussen. I woke up last Thursday, the morning before a planned 4 day trip to the mountains, and had a severe pain in my neck and upper back. Since I had planned golf Friday, snowboarding Saturday, and shooting skeet on Sunday, I thought I should go see a chiropractor fast! Since I had never been to a chiropractor I called around and after two different people recommended Dr. Rasmussen, I gave him a call and told him what happened. I explained I was supposed to be leaving for the mountains in an hour and all the activities I had planned. Dr. Rasmussen was more than happy to help.

He opened up the office early and met with me. He adjusted my neck and back as well as explained what I can do to the injury over the weekend to keep it from tightening up. He was very thorough and patient with my questions. I arrived barely being able to turn my head and when I left I had nearly all range of motion back. I was able to enjoy my whole vacation and the pain never returned.

I'll be returning in the future as well as referring friends. I highly recommend Dr. Rasmussen.

Dr. Rasmussen is absolutely a miracle worker. His gentle yet effective style of chiropractic care is exactly what I needed to heal my back. He took the time to explain to me the cause and effect of my injury and worked with my schedule to help me reach my goal much faster than expected !!!

I had never been to a chiropractor before as I had a phobia of my bones cracking. However, after a sudden back issue, I made a decision to see a chiropractor rather than take meds. Dr Rasmussen is wonderful! Not only did he help me through my phobia, but my back movement and spine alignment is not just better its the best it has felt in years after much stress from coaching gymnastics. The office is a Super friendly environment that is gentle to your needs, informative and caring. 5 star and highly recommended for all. Im super happy with the results and mobility. Thank you so much!

Dr. Rasmussen has been keeping me mobile for the last three years and I highly recommend him! I have had issues with my lower back since I was in my 20's and the older I get, the more frequently I become injured. Dr. Steve is great at understanding the source of my pain and always knows the right techniques to relieve it when it happens. I also appreciate that he only chastises me slightly for forgetting to act my age. Another point I appreciate is that he recommends specific exercises and stretches to keep me from re-injuring myself. His goal seems to be to keep you OUT of his office!

This past summer I injured my sciatic nerve - badly. I got to the point where the muscles in my legs would cramp so much that I could barely walk. After a few traditional adjustments, Dr. Rasmussen recommended trying 'Spinal Decompression' therapy using a complicated looking machine in his office (DRX-9000). After several treatments I can say that it is definitely working! My leg cramps are almost completely gone and I'm back to hiking every weekend. Dr. Steve to the rescue once again!

Thank you Dr. Rasmussen!

Pt HelenWhile working out at the gym, I had given myself a severe abdominal strain. My trainer gave me some stretching exercises, which helped a little. After four weeks of pain, I consulted my regular physician, who offered no significant relief. My trainer suggested that I see Dr. Steve. I didn't think of a chiropractor for this issue because it was clearly muscle related. However, Dr. Steve did in fact resolve my muscle issue. He said my abdominal strain was of the magnitude that would take an athlete out of play for a season. Dr. Steve is more than just a chiropractor, which most folks associate with as a bone cracker. He listened to what I as saying and worked to resolve the problem. I am very grateful to Dr. Rasmussen for resolving my problem!

Dr. Stephen Rasmussen
“Dr. Feelgood”

Earlier in 2016 I had chronic TMJ. I had jaw pain all the time. It started just before Thanksgiving and had continued in varying degrees for many weeks. I was miserable. I had my quarterly teeth cleaning early in January and my oh-so-helpful dental technician suggested a chiropractor. At that point I would have seen a witch doctor if somebody knew one. She suggested Dr. Stephen Rasmussen because chiropractic medicine has been known to cure TMJ. I had no idea, but I was willing to give it a try..
I called Dr. Rasmussen immediately and was able to see him the very next day. His office is convenient for me and I got an early morning appointment. As soon as Dr. Rasmussen (aka Dr. Feelgood) started his manipulation I knew I was in good hands. By my second session my TMJ was just sporadic. By my third session it had GONE. I haven’t felt this good in a long time. Dr. Feelgood is my hero!

I had struggled for some time with lower back pain.  I had been diagnosed with arthritis in the lower lumbar, plus stenosis and scoliosis.  I was not a candidate for surgery because of the scoliosis.  I have lost three inches off my height.  I was being treated by a spinal specialist with cortisone shots.  Unfortunately, the shots began lasting a shorter period of time, then not helping at all.  I was barely able to get around.  I had read an article on spinal decompression, and decided to check it out.  I had a series of treatments on the DRX9000 Spinal Decompression system.  In two weeks I was walking better.  After  the treatments, I felt like I had been given a new life.  That was in 2010, and with occasional chiropractic treatments from Dr. Steve, I am still going strong.  I am so grateful for the DRX9000, and for chiropractic care.
