I have received so much help I haven't received before. Autumn is an amazing masseuse. Ask for her. Dr. Corell has a different approach to chiropractic than I am use too, but she is amazing also.
11:52 22 May 20
The Doctors listen well, and provide quality care that's carefully individualized.
21:34 20 May 20
My initial observation makes me feel lost in this office's paperwork, prices, and communication while I did not receive any relief for actual pain. I'd like to give them a second shot but the attitude there seems to be more profit than patient-centric.

Dr. Van Dyken has taken care of my boyfriend, myself and our four month old who had colic. We are very happy with his work. He is knowledgeable and professional. Our son went after Dr. Van Dyken had expressed that chiropractor work can help with colic and after five visits he no longer cries for hours and he keeps his formula down. Very happy parents!!

Dr. Shirley is a miracle worker!!!
21:47 03 Jan 20
Dr. Jack is an awesome Chiropractor who has been able to fix all my issues with a smile on his face and a great sense of humor. He literally saved my life a few weeks back when I couldn't move due to a hip injury and was able to squeeze me in for his last appointment on a Friday evening!! The staff is also very friendly. If your looking for a great chiropractor look no further! This is the place :)
16:46 02 Jan 20
Respectful service.Flexible and appointment reminder phone calls.The specialist I saw was very kind and respectful.
02:23 01 Jan 20

stephen m allbee. I have been going to spinal sports care clinic for 20 years. I see Dr. Choate and he is the only one that can align me so I can live. Thank you Dr. Choate.
18:09 31 Dec 19
I see Dr. Choate at this clinic. I can always get an appointment at a convenient time, I never have to wait long, the staff is friendly (and they know your name). Dr.Choate has helped me many times and I really rely on him. He is knowledgeable and understanding.
22:14 30 Dec 19
I have been going to Spinal and sports care for a number of years. They keep me upright and walking with minimal to no pain. They are a very friendly office and very accommodating for making appointments. I would highly recommend them to anyone
21:30 21 Dec 19
17:24 15 Dec 19
I've been a patient at Spinal & Sports Care for over 20 years. I know my appointments will be on time. The care I receive from Dr. Shirley keeps me active and helps me control my neck pain.
22:29 12 Dec 19
It's amazing. The people, the Doctors, the service and the results. Highly reccomended.
21:19 09 Dec 19
Amazing service and staff, cant recommend enough!
17:40 09 Dec 19
I've been going to Spinal and Sports Care for a couple years now and it has always been a wonderful experience. Dr. Shirley listens to your needs, makes sure you're comfortable and gives you plenty of education and access to resources to help yourself at home in-between visits. They even have a special table for safe chiropractics for pregnancy and they recently purchased cushions for both the chiropractic team and massage team to make things more comfortable. It's really worth the time and money to go see this team!
19:35 05 Dec 19
I have been going to Spinal and Sports Care on and off for over 15 years although it has been about 6 years since my last visit. Question to myself, why did you wait so long!? The staff is all very friendly and professional and the doctor listened well and helped me pinpoint my issues and I am on my way to feeling better already after one visit. Thank you so much!!
19:05 04 Dec 19
My family has been seen at Spinal and Sports Care for years! We appreciate the care and concern that our family has been shown, along with the knowledge held by each professional there!

I LOVE this clinic. Every practitioner here is AMAZING! You can get therapeutic or relaxation massages that are wonderful, and the chiropractic adjustments are seriously heaven. Special thank you to Dr. Choate for always going above and beyond to keep me vertical.Update: They're all still wonderful and helpful. I've recommended all my colleagues and friends to this clinic.
01:31 26 Nov 19
Been going here since Halloween 2019 and it has been amazing! Wonderful staff and the chiropractic treatments/massage therapy have been helping me a lot during my current pregnancy. If I could rate higher than 5 stars, I 100% would. 😊
04:51 16 Nov 19
Very caring people. They are very friendly and professional and they know what they are doing! I have gone here with my wife about 6 times now and scheduled for another 24 visits this year. Amazing job fixing the pain i have had for 10+years with the chiropractic and then messages after words are out of this world. 10 stars from us!

03:43 29 Jun 19
If you need a chiropractor. Go here. If you think you don't need a chiropractor, you need one. Go here. They are amazing.
00:25 27 Jun 19
Show up for an appointment at 4:15 but that is only the check in time. The actual appointment is for 4:45. Medical Providers are so happy to waste my time but if your late good luck getting help. Then while I am filling out the stack of paperwork it is like I am signing all my rights away. I am here on doctors orders. I only want the procedures paid for by my L&I claim. First impression is horrible.Update after 3 visits to the clinic. The massage therapist was great, 5 starts definitely. The original opinion still holds for the paperwork needed to start and for the general business practice. The lack of friendliness with the front end staff is only a minor things, they are OK, but i expect more from the people who you see first upon entering the business.
18:34 19 Jun 19
Such great Doctors! It's was the perfect choice to help recover from concussion symptoms.
23:21 07 Jun 19
These guys are the best! Especially Dr. Shirley! I tried another place, as my PCP referred me to them...never should have wasted my time. Came right back & of course they have me back on track!!! THANK YOU FOR BEING SO AWESOME!!! Highly recommend!
02:17 07 Jun 19

Dr. Choate is exceptional. Relieved my lower back pain a couple of years ago, and helps with my periodic upper back and neck pain. Excellent service!
01:23 29 Apr 19
Dr. Shirley has really delivered with my chronic pain issues that developed from a work injury over a year and a half ago. I haven't had this significant of relief since getting injured. He really got down to the nitty gritty of exactly what kind of pain I feel, and where I might feel it (depending in the day, time, and alignment of the planets and stars, 😅). I really appreciate the work he's put into getting me ship shape.
04:14 20 Apr 19
I see Dr Choat for spinal manipulation. His speciality: scoliosis. Heart staff all around.

I have been going here for 5 years and they are awesome.
01:20 07 Mar 19
Easily accessible and made me feel right at home and comfortable. Personally, I had Dr. Van Dyken and he was amazing! He showed me ways to fix the problem myself (If you give a man a fish he eats for a day, if you teach him how to fish he eats for a lifetime) instead of just fixing it himself and forcing me to come back over and over. My back was fixed promptly and it was very affordable with insurance. Overall, the experience was very helpful and all of the staff was super friendly.
11:39 06 Mar 19
I have had back pain in the past but usually everything was fine after some stretching and rest but recently my upper back was hurting from unknown reasons and would not go away. I was able to call and get an appointment the same day (actually with in an hour). Dr. Van Dyke is a younger chiropractor but was very knowledgeable and great at explaining everything as we went through the process. The ladies at the front were personable. My whole experience was smooth and positive.
02:44 05 Mar 19
Best place to go for back pain! Doc Shirley is the best!
22:29 13 Feb 19
16:53 07 Feb 19
My physician was helpful kind and courteous. They were able to get me back in working order and I'm grateful for it.

03:09 22 Jan 19
Great Place and if your injured this is the place to go get back to better than you was before the injury.
04:53 13 Jan 19
I love the whole office
18:49 11 Jan 19
Dr. Choate and his staff are fantastic! I am so thankful that he helped me with my plantar fasciitis.
16:26 21 Dec 18
Dr. Shirley is amazing! I always get in when I need to and everyone in the office is very welcoming!
23:53 20 Dec 18
Spinal and sports care is the best Dr. Kenneth Van dyken is the best chiropractor I have ever seen he fixed my back problems knee problems and ankle problems.
17:34 20 Dec 18
I have seen Dr. Shirley for multiple injuries for almost 30 years. I an always impressed with the amount of time he spends making sure I understand my injury, the treatment I am receiving, and what I need to do on my own to heal.
19:59 01 Dec 18
My husband and I searched for a Chiropractor and Massage therapist in one location when we first moved to Spokane from the Portland area. We've been so please with our experiences at Spinal and Sports Care. Our only frustration of late is the fact that we can't get into a massage therapist easily. The only one taking our insurance is booked months in advance and there are no others currently credentialed. Strange, because our insurance is very inclusive and provides great coverage. We are forced to look for a different massage therapist, which places us having to schedule in two separate locations. Loved the care we've experienced in the last 2 years, but are forced to look else where now.
21:15 27 Nov 18
17:03 15 Nov 18
A very special shout out to Suzie, who does myofacial release therapy--her genuine concern and knowledge have helped me through some old, long existing injuries!! Excellent care and service--from the friendly, welcoming and efficient office staff who actually know your name, to the two Chiropracters I've seen, Dr.'s Choate and Shirley, the care, concern and kindness is over and above.Thank you so much for your awesome care!
05:07 13 Nov 18
19:23 12 Nov 18
Dr. Shirley is best chiropractor. He alway so bubbly & funny. He does a great adjustment for both my husband & me. His staff all very friendly and helpful. Debbie Mace
01:50 10 Nov 18
❤️❤️❤️ Dr Choate!!! I see him on a regular basis for ‘maintenance’, and he always cures what ails me!! Highly recommend him to anyone... he is extremely professional yet very personable as well. The clinic massage services are very good too!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
16:23 09 Nov 18
The team at Spinal and Sports Care Clinic are always professional and friendly. I am a long time patient that won’t even consider going anywhere else for my chiropractic needs and for massage therapy. Both departments have made a huge impact in my life many times!
01:50 09 Nov 18
It’s the best clinic I’ve ever been to. Dr Rush is a joy to work with as is the entire staff whom not only offer simple chiropractic adjustments, but cold laser therapy, deep tissue massage, and anything else to resolve whatever I have that is troubling me. I can’t recommend this place enough!
01:12 09 Nov 18
Went in for a massage with Autumn and it was AMAZING! So relaxing. I filled out what spots were bothering me and came out feeling such relief. Highly recommend booking Autumn for s massage!
19:46 08 Nov 18
I can not give enough props for this place. I recommend it to everyone. The staff is out standing!
17:03 08 Nov 18
I have always seen Dr. Shirley and have always been so satisfied with all of my care. This time I needed my 13 year old to be seen and could not get in to Dr. Shirley. We were scheduled with Dr. Van Dyken and he was fantastic! I was so thankful for his time and relatability with my son. I so appreciate him making my son feel comfortable with his first chiropractic experience.
05:17 02 Nov 18
BEST. PLACE. EVER. You have to check them out. If you're hurtin' or just need to relax, they can help you out!
17:19 31 Oct 18
These are the most Friendly, helpful people that I have dealt with. Whenever I call they can get me in the same day! Always willing to answer my questions.Very Pleasant
19:58 26 Oct 18
dis place is kool
00:41 26 Oct 18
What a wonderful place to become pain free. I have had planter fasciitis for 3+ years. I’ve been put in a air cast 3 different times. I’ve had a hard plastic form fitting brace made. Eight knee high hard fiber casts also put on. The first five cast were changed every three weeks. Had about 4 months with no cast, brace etc but I also could not even walk a half block let alone do much house work, grocery shopping yard work etc. The last 3 cast went on in three week intervals and still no relief but actually more pain. I went to the Spinal and Sports Care Clinic and I saw Kenneth Van Dyken ONLY THREE TIMES and was 99% better. I wish I would have gone there three years ago. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Spinal & Sports Care Clinic.
21:20 21 Oct 18
This place has great care. I’ve seen Dr. Rush through two pregnancies, and it is the only thing that has helped my back pain and headaches. I’ve also seen other providers here and they are all wonderful. I highly recommend!!!
01:19 18 Oct 18
I have gone to Dr. Choate for so many years and he has always fixed my issues. Everyone in the office is very nice and professional. I would recommend Spinal & Sports Care to all of my friends and family.
20:34 16 Oct 18
I love spinal and sports care clinic I've been with them for atleast 9 years. I have seen both Dr. Choate and Dr. Rush they are both phenomenal. I hate to share paul Kay's name because it takes a bit to get it to see him because he is an absolute miracle worker for medical massage, he kept me walking almost completely pain free until Dr.s were able to diagnose my facet joint syndrome in my L5,S1 vertebra and have that nerve cauterized. They really are an amazing knowledgeable practice. They helped my daughter and I recover after we were rearended in a motor vehicle crash. I love them and have nothing but their praises to sing. Even after moving 30 min to northwest spokane I will make that drive just to continue the quality of care I receive from them.
20:07 15 Oct 18
I've been seeing Dr. Shirley for a year and half. I started seeing him after car accident and he got me back in shape quickly! He uses many different tools and techniques...
22:35 10 Oct 18
I have only been a patient for about 4 months now, and I can honestly say that I'm thoroughly impressed. Between the massages and the chiropractic care, I can hands down say this is the best I have ever felt
16:49 10 Oct 18
Dr. Shirley is the best! I've been going to him for 10 years and I wouldn't ever go anywhere else.
15:05 15 Sep 18
02:39 03 Jul 18
Dr. Linda I can is the best chiropractor I have ever used
19:44 28 Jun 18
After suffering for over two years with lower back and leg pain, I sought help from Dr. Rush. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful woman!! She was so kind, understanding and knowledgeable. With her help after about a month of treatment I was pain free! I can't thank her enough! Dr. Rush, If you see this, thank you so much! I am so grateful, you are an amazing chiropractor!
11:56 26 May 18
I have struggled for many years with a serious neck injury. I have been going to different Doctors for help. I have been trying many new things and I am excited about this care and approach of strengthening muscles and learning how to care for my specific problem. Thank you Spinal & Sports Care Clinic
23:57 27 Mar 18
Spinal and Sports Care Clinic definitely emphasizes on the CARE at their practice. Dr. Rush made my 13 year Old sons first appointment so great! She was so thorough and really took the time to find out what was going on with my sons back and neck.Her interaction with him was outstanding! A big Thank You to Dr. Rush and the friendly staff!
20:36 10 Mar 18
Fixed my neck fast
20:11 03 Mar 18
I love going to see Doctor Rush. I sleep great after and she is very nice. I've even had my husband seen by her. She gave me a awesome gift card to cover his $90 first patient fee!!
18:36 28 Feb 18
I am still in complete shock! I have spent so many years with constant daily headaches AND the occasional migraine... that I am still adjusting to life without headaches! I literally felt like I have tried EVERYTHING only to have nothing work. After doing some more research online, I decided to go see someone that specializes in headaches, and TMJ.... as I know that is where I carry my stress. After working with Dr. Rush for about two months I have been almost headache free. Its been two months since my last appointment and I am still doing great! There are not enough words to express how life changing this has been for me! Thank you so much Dr. Rush!
18:11 23 Feb 18
I LOVE THIS PLACE!!! The doctors and massage therapists are awesome, and so are the staff at the front desk! I have improved more, just within the last 6 months going here, than I have after years and years and years of treatment at other places. I am a special snowflake apparently, and my neck and battered nerves misbehave something fierce if mishandled. But no more. If you’ve had issues with treatment elsewhere, or felt like you were NEVER going to improve... Get your ass (or your back in this case) in here.
23:36 02 Feb 18
32 weeks pregnant and Dr Rush has me feeling so much better in a couple visits!

Dr. Van Dyken is amazing. My knees have been a problem area for years and thanks to Dr. Van Dyken the pain is gone. My hips even feel a ton better. I am very grateful Dr. Van Dyken put my knees and hips back together. Finally pain free. :)
18:18 11 Dec 17
Dr. Rush is amazing! She's very sensitive to the comforts of pregnant women and great at what she does. I was nervous to keep coming in after getting a cold because my body was fatigued from feeling under the weather, but she was gentle and started the session with an awesome vibrating back massager!
22:40 14 Nov 17
I have been suffering from serious migraines, headaches, jaw pain, neck and shoulder pain for 36 years. When I was 12, I wasn’t paying attention to my dad and got hit in the nose with a splitting mall. It was a total accident. Since then I have dealt with constant pain. I have seen over 150 doctors. This includes family providers, dentists, neurologist, chiropractors, physical therapy, message therapy, acupuncture, orthopedics, pressure point specialist. You name it I went. I was desperate to get relief. No matter who I saw the “relief” only lasted a bit. I have been on more medications than I can count and have spent thousands. I was finally directed to Dr. Shirley. I will admit I was hesitant at first, I mean he was just another chiropractor, right? Wrong. At my consult Dr. Shirley explained to me the real issue, I had TMD like TMJ. The first thing he noticed is that my head was not centered with my body. Then he examined my neck and shoulders and explained that they were in a bunch because the rest of my jaw and head was. He then explained that my jaw muscles were so contracted and tight that they were messing with everything. He started working on everything right away. After just 2 visits my migraines stopped. After 3 all headaches stopped, and my head felt lighter than it had ever felt. It only took 8 visits to reverse years of damage.I had been to so many doctors that I had given up. Dr. Shirley is amazing. He’s gentle and caring. His staff makes you feel right at home. I recommend Dr. Shirley to everyone, if he can reverse 36 years of damage in me, then I know he can help you.
00:43 24 Oct 17
Everytime I have come I everyone was very welcoming and Dr. Rush was a huge help!

Dr Choate is by far the best I have ever been to. the staff in this office is super friendly and helpful. if it was avaliable I would give them 10 stars!!!
20:21 10 Oct 17
The staff is awesome. They genuinely care about how you're doing and want to see you improve. I had a back and hip injury and was in massive pain when I first started coming in. The pain lessened with each visit and I'm so grateful to be pain free.
00:50 27 Sep 17
I had a rib out and it left me in the worst pain and couldn't sleep. Went in and after 4 visits I was back to normal. Staff is very friendly and professional
21:04 15 Sep 17
I highly recommend this place!! Dr Shirley is amazing at what he does and has a great sense of humor. I felt better after one visit. Everyone I interacted with was so nice. That really means a lot, especially when you are in pain. I even got a call later in the day checking in to make sure I was feeling okay after my first visit. This is a place that truly cares!!
16:45 11 Sep 17
Staff is great and Drs are wonderful. Helped my TMJ so I have no pain.
00:47 07 Sep 17
Dr. Rush is great! She worked around my schedule and made sure that my plan fit my busy life! She was very personable and did a great job making me feel great in a short amount of time! I highly recommend her!!
18:15 31 Jul 17
After years of lower back pain following a pregnancy and carrying around a small child, I finally took the recommendation from a friend to try a chiropractor. I was a little nervous about the whole process but Dr. Choate was great about explaining everything and making me feel comfortable and I walked out feeling 100% better after my first visit! After a few follow up visits I feel like a new person and am back to my lifting routine at the gym!! Would totally recommend to anyone on the fence about chiropractic care!
17:44 12 Jul 17
Dr. Rush did an awesome job adjusting my hips! She really knew what she was explaining and the process of everything. I would go back again if needed.
22:50 13 May 17
This was my first visit to Spinal and Sports Care. Was recommeneded my a family member that had nothing but good reviews of her own and I got to see exactly what she meant. Dr. Choate is a fantastic Dr and explained all that he was doing and what would be happening. He even called after my visit that evening to see how I was doing, if maybe I may have needed further treatment. Awesome! I WILL be returning for further treatments. Am looking forward to getting back to where I can take a walk everyday without that severe pain I'm having. I feel really good today, just have to remind myself not to get to anxious and overdo.
14:41 11 May 17
Able to get me in same day and bring my pain from a 8-9 to a 3-4. So grateful.
04:25 07 Apr 17
I came in to the clinic after struggling with severe leg and nerve pain; it was so bad I couldn't be on my feet for very long. After just one visit I was able to take a walk without wanting to ball my eyes out! Thank you Dr. Shirley you are a life saver!
00:23 01 Apr 17
I honestly can't say enough about Dr. Tripp. She is honest in her evaluations, tries several avenues and has a GREAT sense of humor. I always leave feeling great, but I don't know if I will feel as good when I know our sessions are over. The visits are more like visiting a friend than a Dr. On the therapy side of things, she listens to what you have to say about your pain. After 3 visits I was concerned because my pain didn't appear to be subsiding. Dr. Tripp went immediately changed her approach and added Traction to the mix and I couldn't believe the difference. I immediately began to notice my pain subside. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family!!!
16:56 21 Mar 17
I love this place and I love Dr Rush, and that they hire so many massage therapists--all of them are excellent!! The office staff is very helpful as well and always kind and efficient. I called this last week when my insurance changed and they were amazing with their knowledge base and helpfulness!!!Good job everyone!! xoxoxox
04:49 09 Mar 17
This was my first ever experience working with a chiropractor. Dr. Choate was recommended to me by a good friend who works in a similar field. I was extremely impressed with the staff at Spinal and Sports Care Clinic and especially Dr. Choate and the care he provided. I highly recommend this facility for anyone seeking chiropractic care.
11:46 25 Jan 17
Paul Kay's is really a great massage therapist, his technique is different from most; he does a great job of relieving the pain and tension!
01:10 11 Jan 17
Dr Shirley has been my chiropractor for a number of years. He is the most professional chiropractor I have ever been to for my back problems. His genital manipulation of the back and ribs always makes me feel like a new person when I leave his office after a treatment. I would recommend Dr Shirley without hesitation to anyone needing chiropractic care.
22:32 06 Jan 17
I worked with Cheryl, massage therapist. She was very friendly, very thorough and I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Definitely will work with her again.
14:36 21 Dec 16
Dr. Shirly figured our my tooth pain after many painful and expensive procedures at dentists and endodontist. It was my bite all along. Highly recommend Spinal and Sports Care.
20:48 24 Oct 16
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Sylvia Tripp. She is simply the best chiropractor I have ever met. I loved her professionalism and abundance of knowledge and know how. I am lucky to have been referred to her by my primary care physician after sustaining an injury a couple months back. She helped me get back on my feet so I could stay active and enjoy my family time again.
20:37 10 Oct 16
Dr. Shirley has treated me for 13 years he is great
16:59 18 Aug 16
Dr. Shirley is amazing and the rest of the staff are pretty great too :)
04:23 26 Jul 16
The neurosurgeon diagnosed my condition as a sciatic impingement caused by spinal stenosis. The pain level required prescription medication 24/7. The proposed treatment plan was to have a rhizotomy on my sciatic nerve followed by nearly a year of physical therapy to relearn how to walk without full sensation in my leg. The results would be little or no pain and limited use of my right leg. I brought the written test results of the MRI and X-rays to Dr. Choate. We discussed what chiropractic could possibly do and agreed to a treatment plan of two visits per week for four weeks. At the end of the second week I had no more pain and stopped taking the pain meds. The treatment is completed and I still have no pain. My mobility has greatly increased and I am enjoying doing more activities including hiking and riding a bicycle. Thank you, Dr. Choate, for helping me get back the quality of life I value.
16:28 21 Jul 16
DR. CHOATE IS AMAZING!!!!!I've been in physical therapy for years, and never got relief that I do now seeing Jack Choate for Chiro. We started the graston technique ( which is amazing I recommend anyone with muscle injuries or scar tissue to try ) and I couldn't be happier with how I'm feeling. He listens to my concerns, and literally that day fixes everything that I have brought up. Hands down best place I've been. The staff is great too. Very kind and professional. Usually I have bad run ins with horrible reception.Over all a amazing clinic, and I will refer everyone to DR CHOATE!

Only 4 stars because of one visit + exam. Dr.Rush was great and administrative staff made insurance and payment process easy. So far excellent and will be upgrading to 5 stars soon with more to share.

I've been seeing Dr. Choate for a few months now for back and neck pain that I've had for years. I'm new to the area and was apprehensive about seeing a new chiropractor but a friend referred me to Dr. Choate and I'm so grateful he did because I have had way less pain after being treated regularly! Dr Choate has been amazing and I have nothing but good things to say about my experiences at Spinal and Sports Care. I've seen many chiropractors in many states and it can be a tough decision choosing where to go but I highly recommend this clinic to others!

Dr. Rush is fantastic. I think the first chiropractor I've ever met who LISTENS to you. Very personable and I feel so much better after 2 appointments. I have been to 4 or 5 chiropractors over the years and I am impressed.

Had an amazing recovery from a long illness! I'm a 33 year old male,and I had a chronic throat/neck/chest illness that had lasted nearly 3 months. After 6 visits to different doctors (Urgent Care, Primary Physician, ENT) and multiple tests (blood tests, MRI, CT Scan,etc), I was told that there was really nothing 'wrong' with me, except a possible viral infection. Yet, my throat/neck still hurt, was lightheaded nearly all the time, and had a ton of fatigue! So, we decided to give the chiropractor a shot, because traditional medicine wasn't working, and I was willing to try anything at this point. I had seen Dr. Jack Choate in the past for neck/back issues, and had seen great results! Dr. Choate decided to target the muscles in my neck with some adjustments and massage, and on the very first visit, I had EXTREME relief that I hadn't felt in nearly 3 months!! Almost immediately the lightheaded feeling subsided, and the muscles in my neck weren't as stiff and constricting! The pain in my throat/neck were still present, but on a much lesser scale than before. Now, after 5 visits, I am nearly symptom free (still have some throat/neck tenderness that comes and goes), and feel like a normal human being again! I'm extremely grateful to Dr. Choate for helping me get back to the life I was living before this illness! Thank you for everything!!

Dr. Tripp is incredibly knowledgable and talented. She was been able to fix neck pain and neck issues others were not.

Not that I've ever been considered a cry baby, but I've never thought of myself as someone who overly "toughs-it-out" like some people I know. We'll last Thursday at work I rolled my ankle pretty bad and I knew it, but I kept working anyway not realizing until yesterday's grocery list of issues may not be circumstantial. Aside from the obvious ankle and hip pain my headaches were so bad I couldn't think straight and I was too tired for simple tasks along with some nausea. Luckily I was smart enough to schedule with my Chiropractor and after a lot of cracking and what I call "scraping my bones off" plus a little rest last night I feel immensely better and ready to conquer the day! I have an abundance of energy and no flu symptoms anymore. Thank you so much Sylvia Tripp for fixing me! You are a true healer.

Dr. Tripp: thanks. my wrist is pain free for the first time in 2 years! That Graston technique really works.

Dr Choate is amazing! I have suffered from chronic headaches and occasional migraines my whole life. Since going to Dr Choate, my headaches have decreased DRAMATICALLY and I haven't had ANY migraines! His care has improved my quality of life greatly!! He's given me exercises to do at home that helps to keep my neck in alignment, extending the time between my wellness visits. If I have a headache and need a same day appointment, I've always been able to get in and my headache has been relieved. Thanks Dr Choate!!

I was exposed to chiropractic adjustments at a young age thru family members. I continue getting adjustments since a large part of my day is spent sitting at a desk / computer. Dr. Shirley takes care of my many issues from my knees, back, neck, and helps with my TMJ. He is very personable and I enjoy our discussions during the adjustments. The office staff is always friendly. They schedule appointments, take payments, and give a mini back massage before the adjustment, all with a smile.

Love love love Dr. Tripp. If you are in any pain you have to see Dr. Tripp! She not only gives gentle, efficient adjustments, but she is also certified in muscle work, rehab, kinesio-taping, etc. She has an abundance of knowledge that she tailors for your condition or flare up of the day. If you are in pain, she will get you feeling better again!

Dr. Rush is very compassionate, warm, and informative. I enjoyed laughing with her throughout the exam.

I have gone to a number of chiropractors in my time and I went to Dr. Shirley because of his specialization/knowledge in migraines and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) issues I have. I have had increased relief in my jaw and my neck and shoulders have felt remarkably better. I am very happy and satisfied with the service, prices, and the knowledge that Dr. Shirley and his office has offered. I would not only recommend Dr. Shirley to others but plan to continually go for routine adjustments for my own well being.

Dr. Tripp is a compassionate and skilled healthcare provider. As an active athlete she has experience both on and off the field and the knowledge to help her patients on the road to recovery. Her adjusting skills and various chiropractic techniques make her a versatile Doctor ready to tackle any neuromusculoskeletal health condition that comes her way. In the past I have had a difficult time relaxing when it comes to an adjustment. Dr. Tripp took the time to explain to me the process and gently helped me through my fear of adjustments. Dr. Tripp also explained to me the importance of routine exercise and helped me to get started by designing a personalized home care program that fit my physical needs and busy schedule. I highly recommend Dr. Tripp!

Dr. Choate is the best chiropractor I’ve ever seen. Dr. Choate is very talented in his practice and always so thorough and precise. I am usually fixed up in just 1 visit. I’ve seen him for about 13 years and I always get better after seeing Dr. Choate. I finally got my husband to go see him and we both give Dr. Choate high marks! The staff is always so nice and accommodating to my needs and schedules. It is a perfect setup to get a massage and then an adjustment at the same location. Thanks to you all for taking care of me! I highly recommend Sports & Spinal in Spokane Valley.

The best thing I ever have done for myself was go to see Dr. Shirley. Would recommend to anyone

Very helpful. Look forward to being pain free!

I saw Dr. Rush because I had some severe neck spasms and my right arm was numb. I have never seen a Chiropractor before, so I was very nervous about the experience. Dr. Rush is perfect for someone who is looking to have chiropractic treatment done for the first time. She takes her time, is gentle, and explains everything very well. I am now pain free and completely mobile after her treatment plan. I would highly recommend Dr. Rush

As a patient for several years, I appreciate the atmosphere as much as the effective treatment. The front office staff are friendly and work for me on insurance coverages and scheduling appointments. I get treatment based on my activities, and for the kinds of issues that allow me to get back to those things I enjoy doing. Dr. Shirley continues to use effective new techniques, exercise recommendations and proactive plans as research advances.

My daughter (age 12) woke up with a stiff neck from sleeping wrong so I made an appt. with Dr. Choate. (he's my chiropractor) He checked her out and noticed she had no mobility on one side so adjusted her gently. He suggested we use ice several times a day and come back in a few days. Two days later we returned and her mobility was much better so he adjusted her again and said to continue with the ice and come back in 3 days. When we returned he was very pleased with her progress, did the final adjustment and said she was good to go with normal activity. I have been very happy with the chiropractic care we've received from Dr. Choate.

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Shirley at Sports & Spinal Care Clinic. I am the blessed mommy of a little girl with lots of special needs. While I adore being her mother, my lower back (and the rest of my body) takes a beating. I've ignored the constant pain for 5 years, but finally it got to the point where I couldn't even sit or stand comfortably, and I felt like something was just inevitably going to snap. So, rather than get laid up in a hospital bed, I decided (upon recommendation) to see if Dr. Shirley could help. Little did I know my world was about to change! After the first time seeing Dr. Shirley- who was quite impressed with my twisted hips, hunched and knotted back and shoulders, and practically immobile neck- I started feeling relief. In fact, I commented to my husband that I had forgotten what it felt like to feel so good. I literally flashed back to my childhood, which was the last time I remember my body feeling so uninhibited and free. Dr. Shirley showed me that I have scoliosis, so he put me on a schedule of appointments with him, as well as daily exercises and stretches at home to help "train" my body into the correct alignment. What a blessing this has all been. I am watching my body get (and look) better and better, and I am feeling remarkably better, with hardly any pain to speak of. As a mom of a daughter who sees many doctors and specialists, I have become very selective with doctors. Dr. Shirley is a very commonsense-minded, talented doctor. He works hard to find the approach that will not only make you feel better, but will also make you STAY better (without spending excessive amounts of money). If you have any kind of pain (even migraines- I have a number of friends who he's helped get rid of those), please go see Dr. Shirley! Trust me- it is worth the try!

My wife had a pre-scheduled appointment and we arrived at the establishment about 15 minutes early. As we extended the usual greetings and such, I thought I would just check to see what the schedule looked like and see if maybe they could slide me in for a "Tune-Up" adjustment. After the original message of "Sorry, the Dr. is all booked", I relaxed and settled in to wait. NO WORRIES at all. Then as my wife was being directed to her room, they inform me that I can go too; and the Dr. will adjust us both. Wow, I say... Customer Service and flexibility! Outstanding, exceptional service; the things we all look for when it comes to our health care needs. Ten Thumbs UP !

Dr Shirley is a very nice down to Earth guy who explains things in an easy to understand way. His goal is to fix you, not have you returning to his clinic for years. I was in a car accident back in 1995 that caused my upper spine to become straight rather than curved. After about a month of seeing Dr. Shirley, all was well. I had to visit him again in 2009 for another car accident injury. This time just a sprain. After just a week, I was good to go.
