Austin >Active Life Healing Center
Kinda hard to imagine going anywhere else or approaching spinal problems in any other way... I've been to several other chiropractors over the years, and they don't hold a candle to this place. The chiropractors are great, but the overall wellness plan is where they really shine & seperate themselves from the others. Victor, the lead trainer, is an indispensible gem!
5 STARS! Feeling much better now! Thanks to the individualized treatment plan from Dr. Cynthia Schade and her team. I am so fortunate to have found such comprehensive care. Active Life Chiropractic Center covers all the bases in get you back to wellness. I truly enjoy their professional and heart centered staff. Cannot recommend them enough.
I am getting treatment for my carpal tunnel syndrome there which includes rehab, adjustment and massage therapy. There are few people over there who only watch the clock when they are attending the patients (for example setting a timer for massage which does not make any sense and makes your muscles even more nervous than relaxed!) However it is great if you are lucky to see the other group of staff there.
Victor is awesome in the rehab. He gives you great exercises and explains them very carefully. He watches you and makes sure you are fine.
Chris in the rehab and massage is such a nice caring guy. He can make the painful ‘Graston’ enjoyable!
Dr. Laura is a very sweet and caring lady in the adjustment room. Diego is a very nice, gentle and caring massage therapist. He makes sure to spend good amount of time with you and solve your problems. These are the ones who really care if you are happy when you leave that place and make my visits enjoyable. I highly recommend them!
Simply Wonderful!. Active Life Chiropractic is everything I could have imagined and more. Very professional and friendly. Everyone knows your name and genuinely care about your well- being. All of the Dr.'s and physicians have their own way of treatment so you get to experience various methods of rehabilitation and they all work! I highly recommend them.
Dr. Schade and the entire team at Active Life Chiropractic Clinic are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful!
I initally went to the Clinic for the food allergy test and decided to try their treatments for consistant headches I was having on the left side of my head. I have only being going to clinic for two months and have already seen great improvments in my headaches and posture.
I have learned so much from the physical therapy team on how to strengthen and correct my posture. This is so important as I sit at a desk most of day and did not realize the strain this causes on different parts of your body. And that there were exercises I could be doing while at work to prevent strain or injury.
I would definitely recommend going to them!!
Learning How to Heal. I do believe Dr. Schade and her fabulous team have helped me learn how to heal, the right way! Dr. Schade really helps to make sure the right treatments are done each time. The excellent physical therapy team teaches strengthening, correct posture and stretching to help heal and prevent injury recurrences. The massages have been the best I've ever received. I was able to experience Graston treatments on my knees. The Graston treatments have made the most amazing improvement in what I thought was osteoarthritis, but in fact, seems to be scar tissue buildup. Chris has helped smooth out the tissue and in just two weeks I've got a very hopeful outlook with regard to my future activity. It's wonderful to be able to move without pain!
Totally Recommend Active Life!. The team at Active Life is incredibly competent, and after just a few weeks of sessions I feel that the program is making signifant progress in my quest to decrease chronic muscle tension and correct posture and proper spinal alignment. This clinic is great for active, athletic individuals who have come to a place where their issues are beyond what diet and exercise can solve, and offers another kind of intervention to improve longterm bodily health. The South Austin location is nice and convenient, too!
Dr. Schade and all of the wonderful staff at Active Life Chiropractic have worked wonders on my decades old headache problem. I feel like the treatments have offered me a *real* fix from the inside out. I would say this is a very holistic and pragmatic way of looking at the body and our health.
The office is extremely personable and completely helpful. The location is nice and next to many great South Austin spots.
I am so glad your headaches have gotten better. I rarely get them and when I do I have even more empathy towards the patients that have them on a regular basis. It is gratifying to work with patients who do the follow- through , are willing to follow our advice, do their exercises, etc. You have been a pleasure to work with. Dr. Schade
Austin's Best Chiropractic Care.
I was sceptical of what benefit I could really receive from chiropractic care but was willing to give it a try. That was 15 years ago! They have helped me with lower back pain, carpal tunnel and knee problems. I can't say enough good things about these folks.
Dr. Schade at Active Life Chiropractic is the guiding force. She is open to new ideas and continuously explores new treatments for her patients.
At Active Life you get the whole package, massage, chiropractic care and other treatments!
Are you still at home?
Thanks so much Carolyn, I love working with you and your whole family. It is fun to see your daughter grow up. I love to be able to help with all the changes our bodies go thru overtime. It keeps me inspired to always learn new things and have patients that are open to new ideas and ways of treatment. I always enjoy working with you!!
Dr. Schade and her staff are wonderful with a very holistic approach to healing- they'll treat all of you. I originally visited her back in the early 90's at their old location to treat some pain I was having and was very impressed. I recently came back approaching 40 with some debilitating back spasms and committed to more regular visits for a short time. The practice has grown and it is amazing. She's given me my life back! No more spasms, I'm running, rock climbing, biking again and- thank heavens- cooking (yes, even that was giving me spasms). I wish I had done myself a favor and visited her more frequently early on.
My favorite treatment is Graston. I have had some chronic pain that I never thought I would be rid of it and it is totally gone. My whole life is truly better. An added benefit- I have never really liked floor work or indoor exercise but now religiously do the simple movements they taught me to strengthen my core and boy my abs are showing it. And it's so easy! Her staff made it fun.
It's not like other dr's office where you are just sitting there in one place- you move from treatment to treatment and people are very friendly. Often, someone would look in on me and give a little massage if I were waiting anywhere. I, personally, like it. It's kind of like going to happy hour.
If you are having pain you should go. The removal of the chronic pain I was in was worth it alone. If you do, I'll see you there!
So glad it was so helpful. I discovered Graston because it cured me of carpal tunnel syndrome. Having the personal experience made me want to make it available to my patients. The technique still surprises me sometimes on how effective it is.
