Dr. Stanmore Langford, Chula Vista

“I have been a chiropractor for over 10 years.  Dr. Winchell is my doctor.  I drive over 160 miles roundtrip to see him, he is the best.”

Ron Allen, San Clemente

“He saved me from back surgery!”

June Munce, Mission Viejo

“Ten years ago today, I came to you in a wheel chair, wrapped in a beach towel, barely able to move.  You put me back together and the next day..I walked again.  I was afraid I would never dance a gain, but I have been dancing now for ten years.  Thank you!”

Lorea Rollins, Victorville

“Arthritis in my hands bothered me for many years.  Doctor after doctor would try different treatments, but nothing worked long term.  I would feel better for a while, but that pain always came back.  I had never been to a chiropractor before, but a friend told me to see Dr. Winchell.  Since I could see how much he had helped her, I decided to give Dr. Winchell  try.  I’m so glad I did.  I’m now gardening again (that’s right, at 86 years old).”

Chris Berge, Mission Viejo

“I’m going to be a father in May, and Dr. Winchell gave my child its first present…a healthy father!!!  I was told by my medical doctors that I was permanently disabled and lived crippled for 2 1/2 years.  After 2 months with Dr. Winchell, I don’t live in pain anymore.”

Janice Metz, Chino Hills

“My truck wasn’t the only thing damaged in my accident.  My back and neck were too.  Dr. Winchell fixed me good as new.”

Deanna Grisham, Mission Viejo

“I can’t believe I suffered with migraines for so many years, when help was just up the street.  Thanks!!”

Danielle Bowen, Laguna Niguel

“I had terrible headaches every day for years.  I would take 4 to 6 Tylenol Migraine to dull the pain enough to get through the day.  I hated taking the medication and was worried about my liver.  Many people had suggested seeing a chiropractor, but I had never been to one and was scared.  Luckily I ended-up at Dr. Winchell’s office because his treatment is so gentle, there is no worry for me anymore.  I can hardly even feel the adjustment.  But I definitely feel the results…NO MORE HEADACHES!!!”

Jean McAllister, Mission Viejo

“After only three adjustments, I haven’t had a headache in weeks after suffering with a headache everyday for the last 17 years.”

Cynthia Allen, Chino

“I lived in pain everyday for over four years.  The medical doctors said I had fibromyalgia nd that I needed to learn how to cope with the condition.  A friend insisted that I needed to see Dr. Winchell.  Thankfully, I did.  Because of him, I now live fain-free.  I can’t thank him enough for giving me a normal life back.”

Kim Caufman, Laguna Niguel

“After  a few adjustments from Dr. Winchell, my pain was gone for the first time in years.  I’m jogging and playing tennis again.  I feel younger and more energetic, instead of getting depressed and feeling like my body is falling apart!”

Alicia Sierras, Mission Viejo

“I am extremely grateful for using Dr. Winchell for my Chiropractic work and wish that all who need healthy spines could be referred to him.:

Dr. Robert Karr, D.D.S., Fullerton

“Dr. Winchell’s treatment is simply the best!!!”

Mark Escalante, Mission Viejo

“It is your knowledge, experience and dedication to your profession that has really helped me.”

Bob Sigler, Mission Viejo

“I went to another chiropractor for one year with worsening results.  Dr. Winchell was able to restore my neck, enabling it to return to center.”

Rose Mary Nichols, Lake Forest

“The quality of care I received from Dr. Winchell is obvious in the way I feel, look and move.  I am very fortunate to have him.”

Jim Griggs, Mission Viejo

“Dr. Winchell is very considerate and empathetic.  He explains the problem, the remedy and procedure in a clear, logical manner.  He takes the guess-work out of the problem and uses science and physics to cure”

Denise Higgins, Mission Viejo

“Dr. Winchell is my confidante and I go to him for all the answers.  Thanks to him, I no longer fear the future and what life with MS holds for me. I am truly grateful to him.”

Dr. Jerry Kosmala, Mission Viejo

“Dr. Winchell evaluated the problem and knew exactly how to cure it.  After  few visit, I began to improve rapidly and now I am cured completely – without undergoing any drastic and invasive measures.  Thank you Dr. Winchell, you are a true magician.”

Anna Kosmala, Mission Viejo

“My name is Anna Kosmala, and I am 76 years old.  Three years ago I had a car accident, aftern which I had a hip contusion, chest contusion, vertebral compression fracture of the bones in the spine, etc.  I had some physical therapy treatments, but I suffered a lot and sometimes I couldn’t get up from bed because the pain was so severe.  The doctors suggested a surgery, but my son-in-la, who was cured by Dr. Winchell from his big problem, made an appointment for me to see Dr. Winchell.  When I started to visit Dr. Winchell, my pain was disappearing, and gradually I was feeling better.  Now, I can perform various things around the house, play with my grandchildren, and I don’t have pain anymore, without surgery.  Thank you Dr. Winchell.”

Lori Ferguson, Mission Viejo

When I first came to see Dr. Winchell in May 2007; I was in constant excruciating pain. I had been to three Orthopedic Surgeons and two Neurosurgeons and no one could offer me any hope for a recovery. I had tried multiple epidural cortisone injections, traction, acupuncture, traditional chiropractors and had been in physical therapy for months  with absolutely no improvement. I was not able to work longer  than a couple of hours a day and had to sleep sitting up. I was  taking four or five oxycodone a day; which did little more than  barely take the edge off the pain. Within a month of beginning  treatment with Dr. Winchell, I was off the drugs, back at work  full time, sleeping in my bed again and my pain level was down from a 10+ to about a 3. Within three months I was virtually pain  free leading a perfectly normal life. When Dr. Winchell added the laser treatment, my results have been nothing short of miraculous!

Carol Smith, Mission Viejo

“I picked up something from the floor and felt a horrible pain in my back.  I could hardly move.  The pain kept me up all night.  I knew if I could get to Dr. Winchell I would feel better, I feel like he works magic.  Before I left his office, the pain subsided. I can always count on Dr. Winchell to help me with my back problems.”

Kathy Gordon, Mission Viejo

“I was referred to Dr. Winchell by my mom after months of pain.  When I first came to Dr. Winchell, my sciatic back pain was so bad I could barely stand to walk, couldn’t sleep or find a comfortable sitting position.  I felt like an 80 year old woman, although I’m only 45.  After 6 months of treatment, I have no pain and have returned to exercising, walking and just being able to climb stairs is amazing.  Dr. Winchell and his staff are great people, you become like family after a few visits.  I can’t recommend him and his staff enough.  And also a big thank you to my mom for recommending him.”

Stacy Bower, Mission Viejo

“My 15 yeaar-old son was having many issues with upper respiratory infections, allergies and severe headaches.  He was missing a lot of school and none of the medications were working, expecially for his headaches, which his doctors assumed to be sinus and breathing related.  I had just filled out the paper work to authorize one year of Immunology treatments from the allergist, when our main pediatrician referred us to Dr. Winchell.  Dr. Winchell diagnosed and immediately began to treat Michael for what was actually causing his headaches — a severe compression on his C2 vertebrae causing pinching aof all the nerves leading to his face, eyes, nose, mouth and forehead.  Within a period of four days, Michael’s headaches nearly disappeared.  He has received treatments 3 and 4 times a week for the past 3 weeks and hasn’t missed any more school as a result of headaches.  Dr. Winchell is also treating his allergies using the NAET method.  He has already significantly helped him with his severe allergy to grass.  I truly believe that Michael is on his way to being a healthier and happier teenager.  And, especially if he continues his football career, I know that we will be having a nice long relationship with Dr. Winchell and his VERY friendly staff!”
