Dr. Winchell is a caring, knowledgeable & professional chiropractor. In the past I always went to chiropractors who did regular adjustments and I often times left with more pain and did not want to return. This is my first experience with Cold Laser Therapy and the Activator treatment which are both non-invasive and very effective.
The office staff is friendly and efficient and I always feel very welcome here.
It’s obvious Dr. Winchell cares about his patients and I highly recommend him.
I started going to Dr. Winchell about 6 years ago. Before that, my back used to hurt on a regular basis and I never understood why, I just tried to ignore it. I came here on my mom’s recommendation and couldn’t be happier I did. I no longer have to live with back pain on a daily basis. I started out needing to go 3 times a week and now am well enough to go once every few weeks as needed. My back is so much better I now. I have seen what this treatment does for others as well as myself and highly recommend the Activator method over traditional ‘back-cracking’ methods. Thank you so much Dr. Winchell!
On another note, one of the best things about Dr. Winchell’s office is the way it’s run. You don’t need an appointment, it’s a walk-in basis and usually it’s not a very long wait. But while you wait, the staff is friendly, fun, and helpful. Judy will always make you smile. This is one of the best Doctor offices I’ve ever been to; No stress to keep to a schedule, just come in and expect to smile.
I was losing hope in medicine and was in extreme depression from the constant pain I was in before my Dad referred me to Dr Winchell. He was an absolute life saver. I haven’t been back for years but I would like my testimonial to serve as a most sincere Thank You to Dr Winchell and his staff.

When I found Dr. Winchell 6 years ago, my neck pain was so severe that I had no quality of life. I had tried traditional chiropractors, acupuncture, been through months of physical therapy, had multiple cortisone injections and nothing was helping. I had seen several orthopedic surgeons and a top OC neurologist and the only answer they had for me was to increase my pain meds. Within a few weeks of seeing Dr. Winchell I was completely off pain medication. Dr. Winchell literally gave me my life back! By seeing him for routine maintenance, I’ve stayed pain free for years. His treatment is completely different than what you think of when you hear the word “chiropractor” and I would urge anyone living with neck or back pain to visit Dr. Winchell. I’m grateful every day that I did.
Dr. Winchell evaluated the problem and knew exactly how to cure it. After a few visits, 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.
Dr. Stanmore Langford,
I have been a chiropractor for over 10 years. Dr. Winchell is my doctor. I drive over 160 miles round trip to see him, he is the best.
I suffered with shoulder pain for many months, thinking it would just go away. A friend suggested I go see Dr. Winchell. After one treatment, the pain was gone. I went to him for foot pain eight years ago and he fixed me in one treatment then too. I wish I would have gone to him for my shoulder sooner! Next time I injure myself, I am not waiting and suffering for no reason. Thank you, Dr. Winchell, you’re the best!
I can’t express how thankful I am for Dr. Winchell and his practice. After years of suffering from thoracic outlet syndrome (with severe numbness and tingling in both arms), and other autoimmune chronic issues, I came accustomed to living in pain. As a last resort, in 2005, (no one referred or mentioned us to chiropractor at the time), I had brachial plexus surgery after having years of physical therapy, shots, wearing a postural brace, pain medication, etc. I was symptom-free for six years after the surgery, having no numbness or tingling in the arms, but still had an extremely stiff neck. Six years later, my symptoms came back in full force. I was in complete denial, as my surgeon told me that I had a 7% chance of my symptoms returning. Not wanting to see neurologist after neurologist again, I saw one chiropractor before Dr. Winchell who turned out to be a total quack. She tried to sell me everything under the sun, and I really felt uncomfortable. Believing that chiropractic still can work, I came to Dr. Winchell and I am so incredibly elated. I learned that my neck has no curvature, which is why my nerves are being pinched up and down my neck. My x-ray showed other signs of subluxations and decay, which correlated with my symptoms. After just a few adjustments, I am already feeling much better, and I look forward to seeing Dr. Winchell and his amazing, friendly staff each visit. His laser and low-force techniques are truly life-changing. I recommend him whole-heartedly! If you want to be healed and treat the cause of your symptoms, you need to see Dr. Winchell. He cares about his patients deeply, and his staff will work with you and your insurance to make sure you get the help you need and deserve. Thank you, Dr. Winchell!

Dr. Winchell has been the most dedicated and intelligent healer I have ever met, and he has been my personal doctor of chiropractic. I love his gentle chiropractic instrument adjusting technique. I recommend Dr. Winchell highly to anyone who may have health challenges.

“As a former athlete, Dr. Winchell has been a god-send, alleviating not only back, neck and other pain but he was able addressing the root causes allowing me to live the quality of life I always want…. and of course keeping me on the golf and tennis courts. Dr. Winchell’s knowledge in identifying the root causes of the problem was second to none… simply amazing, but moreover the solutions and programs he set up for me is what makes him a truly great doctor.
The professional staff makes everyone feel very comfortable and more like a big family. The human touch Dr. Winchell provides to each patient is why my family loves him so much…. he is simply a person who cares about everyone and just happens to be one hell of a Doctor.”

On Monday morning, just under a week ago, after another sleepless night and months of increasing pain in my legs, I was treated by Dr. Winchell, and advised to come back later in the week for a second round. I actually experienced some immediate relief, and the following day my pain level had dropped from a 9 to a 5. The pain ramped back up toward the end of the week, when I came in for my second treatment. During the second treatment, Dr. Winchell asked questions about my day to day activities, and seemed to have an “Ah ha!” moment when I answered a question about my sleep position and my adjustable mattress. I just woke up from my first full night’s sleep in months after implementing Dr. Winchell’s simple, sensible advice, and hopped out of bed and suddenly realized that I had almost no pain and very little stiffness for the first time all year! If you are suffering from chronic pain, or any condition Dr. Winchell says he can help with . . . DO NOT WAIT like I did! Just make the appointment and get thee to Winchell Chiropractic! This man is brilliant and effective! He will change your life!

I originally went to a chiropractor for neck pain several years ago who didn’t take xrays, manually cracked my neck, gave me deep tissue massage and I got progressively worse. A friend recommended Dr. Winchell. He took xrays and treated me first with adjustment and cold and I progressed through the rest of his treatment and I have not had neck pain since that treatment. I’m here now because of back pain caused by a crooked lower spine. I’m getting much better quickly. Dr. Winchell is wonderful, knowledgeable and will do what is needed to get you fixed and out of pain!

“Insightful, passionate, and caring. That’s how we would describe Dr. Winchell. My husband went from having a leg that had been atrophying for six years causing him mobility issues to walking 3 miles a day today. Dr. Winchell came into our lives after 6 years of seeing many doctors and giving up, including spending time at the Mayo Clinic and UCI and receiving a disheartening diagnosis, inclusive body myositis with no cure. When describing the situation to Dr. Winchell, he read all of our medical records, examined the x-rays and said, I think your problem isn’t inclusive body myositis, but an obstructed nerve near the L5 region of the back. He then referred us to one of the best neurosurgeons at Cedars Sinai and in no time, they confirmed Dr. Winchell’s diagnosis. My husband recently had surgery to remove the ligaments and Dr. Winchell is focused on getting his leg back to full strength. We are full of optimism and hope, thanks to Dr. Winchell and his wonderful office team.”
