Your review is the best compliment we could receive:

I have had scoliosis for my entire life of 57 years and have been under a traditional chiropractic care for over 17 years.  During this time I was only receiving temporary relief.  Also, the length of my legs was uneven and one shoulder much higher than the other.  

After three months of seeing Dr. Lim for my care and starting the Atlas Orthogonal treatment, my legs and shoulders are practically even.  But the most significant thing is that the pain in my lower back that I have had ever since I can remember is no longer there and I feel physically the best and more energetic than I can remember.

My 13-year-old son has Down Syndrome. He had developed a serious neck problem where his top 2 vertebrae were out of alignment by about 30 degrees. He spent a week in the hospital and underwent traction while there, but this did not help. The next possible solution  the MDs were leaning towards was fusion surgery in order to make the neck bones more stable. (The probable cause of the condition is that the ligaments that hold C 1 and C2 in place were weak- a common occurrence with Downs) He would have had to have a neck and head ring put in place so that traction would be applied before, during, and after surgery.  A doctor of nutrition referred us to Dr. Lim for Atlas Orthogonal treatment.  After the x-rays and just 2 visits, there was monumental improvement in Andrew’s condition.  He stopped holding his head to the side, his energy and activity were restored, he returned to school and he has returned to being a healthy, “normal”, active boy of 13.  Thank you to Dr. Lim and this special treatment

Prior to retiring I had begun to experience an increasing amount of neck pain along with a very noticeable deterioration in my posture. I was well aware these problems were not just happening but were the result of long-term problems. 

My neighbor had begun treatment with Dr. Lim and was impressed with the technics and painless manipulation methods used in her treatment. More importantly, she felt her pains were decreasing.
I was impressed by Dr. Lim’s attention to detail  during the evaluation and related history data processes and that this information is referenced frequently during the treatment process. 


There has been a noticeable improvement in my posture and overall feeling of strength and fitness in the short time I have participated in the chiropractic program and I look forward to enjoying these benefits throughout my retirement.

What a difference in my neck and lower back. When I first came to Dr. Lim, three months ago, I was in pain when sitting, standing and lying down. The difference is amazing. My job involves extensive travel and standing for long periods of time and now I do both with no pain or stiffness. I am also sleeping through the night and waking up without neck pain (previously and every morning occurrence). I actually look forward to my visits because the results are so positive. I plan to continue my chiropractic care and make it permanent part of my wellness program. Why not continue to feel great!

Prior to seeing Dr. Lim for the first time, I was plagued with severe migraines, cluster headaches and a general lack of energy. These headaches occurred every 4-6 weeks and would last anywhere from 2-10 days. The pain was so bad it hurt just to blink! Further, the medication I was given to relieve pain would put me on bedrest for 2 days! Additionally, my shoulders were always tense and my posture was poor, leading to a low self esteem image to myself and others. 

Thanks to Dr. Lim’s chiropractic skill, my health has improved significantly! My headaches are essentially gone. During the past month, there was only a single episode that lasted only 30 mins and did not require medication. Her encouragement to improve my posture has resulted in a better alignment of my mind and body. Consequently, I have felt much healthier, full of energy and more confident than ever.  I am grateful for all she has done.

Six or seven years ago, I began to be awakened in the early mornings with headaches, which were at times quite intense. These occurred two to three times a week and were not relieved by pain or migraine medications. A CT scan revealed no contributing condition. 

Dr. Lim began treating me for atlas/cervical subluxation. In about a month, the persistence of the headaches ceased. Her careful history taking implicated a minor-seeming auto accident as a probable precipitating event.

Dr. Lim’s adjustments, given once or twice a month, along with teaching about strength and posture are helping me maintain correct alignment.  I no longer “lose” a day to headaches.

I had experienced chronic headaches for a number of years. Earaches, blurred vision and difficulty chewing were frequent problems. Other chiropractic treatments had provided effective relief but did not result in lasting changes. I was impressed by Dr. Lim’s focused and systematic approach. Over the last four months, with regular adjustments, I have experienced consistent and remarkable improvement. Not only have the headaches greatly diminished and mobility so much better, but I no longer have to buy large bottles of aspirin every month. I have become convinced that Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic care is a key to overall good health. Many thanks to Dr. Lim.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for Dr. Lim’s chiropractic care. Even though I am a new patient, I am already experiencing many results. Thank you!

During my teenage years, I was diagnosed with Reiter’s Syndrome, a form of genetic juvenile arthritis. I have undergone many medical procedures including surgery, taking a regime of heavy medications and rehabilitation therapy. These approaches did not work for me in the long-term as the cycle of my affliction worsened I was neither satisfied with the harsh side effects of prescription drugs nor the risks associated with surgeries. 

Chiropractic treatment has offered me an alternative solution. I now have a new outlook as to what health care can be. I am enjoying a greater range of motion and less pain and stiffness in my joints. With Dr. Lim’s assistance and my commitment to the treatment plan, I feel more confident that my health will continue to improve. The peace of mind that results from knowing I am actively participating in my healing is overwhelming!

I felt immediate comfort and for the first time in my life I felt a sense of normalcy. Before receiving this treatment I was bracing myself that I might not be physically able to work full-time, and had come to terms with the fact that I could not do things most people my age could do. I have to readjust my sense of normal now. I am not nauseous, my anxiety has greatly decreased, and I have had no dizzy spells or migraines since treatment. I have never had a day that I haven't felt sick or had to lay down because I was too exhausted. I am now amazed by how this treatment has transformed my life, and will forever be grateful to Dr. Lim. I am now in Graduate School and traveling with a study abroad program and have the most energy I've ever had.

I am amazed at the improvement that I have had. I have not had a full night’s sleep in 5 years, in spite of going to other doctors in other states.  I cannot take pain killers, which is good because I got the root cause of the problem fixed, and not just covered up. My wife even notices that I have more energy and am happier without the pain.

I strongly recommend Atlas Orthogonal chiropractic care; it was a surprise that it worked much better than medications. You can’t beat getting better and feeling good without medication.

Dr. Krakos is AMAZING. I have several chronic illnesses (dysautonomia/POTS, EDS, trigeminal neuralgia, migraines, hypothyroid) and take tons of pills (yuck!) but I have been able to get off quite a few thanks to Dr. Krakos. My neurologist especially recommended this treatment option for trigeminal neuralgia, and though it took longer than normal, this was the best decision I have ever made. I've been almost symptom and medicine free since January. THANK YOU!!!

Nisa K.

Have been going to Spine Arts Center for about 10 years. I finally found relief for what had been chronic tension headaches. In addition, a periodic trip to Spine Arts Center to see Dr. Lim has helped me follow a healthier lifestyle and reduce chronic inflammation

Mary S.

Dr. Krakos is exceptionally kind and professional. The techniques he employs are the only ones to fully address my Mother's trigeminal neuralgia facial pain and help keep it in remission. My own experience has been equally satisfying with good progress made on finding relief from chronic problems and pains. Highly recommend working with Dr. Krakos before surgery or other irreversible procedures.

It’s amazing! I can move so much more easily. My pain level has been reduced more than I could have ever believed it could.
