Here’s what our patients are saying:
I have had a history of neck problems due to a severe automobile accident. I suffered from much pain, immobility and restricted movement and inability to get a full nights sleep. Due to the pain, I became depressed, I had low energy the pain dominated my life.
After just a few treatments my pain level decreased, allowing me to get better nights of sleep, and all without the use of any medication!! My life has become so much better, I feel like dancing with my husband again, without the worry of being in pain!!! The entire treatment was a miracle for me!! I feel hopeful for my future without pain in my life.

Before treatment I suffered from numerous pain problems: headaches, fibromyalgia, back pain and leg pain and sleep apnea. I just could not function. My whole life was consumed with pain. Now I have seen much improvement! I can move better with little to no pain. I can move my head left to right every time without getting dizzy or feeling faint. That in itself is an amazing accomplishment. I am able to drive a car confidently again. I would recommend this treatment to anyone. It has helped me to look forward and not be stuck on the pain!
-Ana, Lakeland FL
I have had over 35 years of constant back pain, mostly due to my occupation. Several times the pain was so excruciating, I would be laid up on my back for days. Unable to do daily normal activities, never mind attempting to work. It was a constant battle I was afraid to do anything that would put strain on my back. As I got older it really slowed me down. When my first grandchild came, it hurt me every time I picked her up. I KNEW I HAD TO DO SOMETHING!
The pain is gone! I am still very aware of what I can and can’t do, but my outlook on life has changed so much. I feel like a weight I’ve been carrying for so many years has been lifted. I am enjoying things now I thought I could never do again. Any depressing feelings I had in the past are gone, I even started drawing again. I am so happy that I took the chance to try this treatment, and it has restarted my life again.
-Thomas, Lakeland FL
I suffered from severe neuropathy and my feet felt like they were burning up and someone was sticking pins into my feet. I couldn’t walk too far wearing my shoes. This took my ability to walk around town, and Golf. After the treatment I can now wear shoes for longer periods of time. The burning sensation is almost completely gone. I am enjoying life more with the reduced amount of pain. As a result to the treatment I feel better all over my body. I am confident I will feel even better once the treatment is complete.
-Roy, Lakeland FL
Prior to the treatment I had numbness in my feet and hands along with back pains and neck pains, muscle pains in my arms, headaches and ear pains. Now after treatment I feel stronger with no numbness in my feet or hands. Overall I feel my life has become much, much better.
-Ethel, Ridgeway VA
From my legs down to my feel were so numb. I had a terrible time trying to walk. A lot of the time the numbness in my legs would cause me to fall. I have had only 3 treatments and already I can feel the sensation in my legs again. I can also say that I am more confident when I walk and less afraid that I am not going to fall. Even thought I have had only 3 treatments I would recommend this treatment to anyone who has had the same problems I had in the past.
-Ruth, Lakeland FL
My husband saw the ad in the paper and I thought I should try it. I have had lower back pain for as long as I can remember, from a childhood accident. The lower back pain caused me to develop aches and pains all over my body. In order to deal with the pain in the past, I was using over the counter pain medications. Since starting the treatment I have not had to take one pill. The aching in the shoulders, back, etc. has eased so much I can hardly believe it. My life has become so much better. I feel positive waking up in the morning with out pain I had lived with for so many years before.
-Shirley, Lakeland FL
I read the article in the newspaper about the neuropathy treatment. I thought that I would give it a try to attempt to reduce the numbness in my legs and feet. It was very difficult for me to walk or stand for long periods of time. After just a few treatments now I can see that the treatment overall is showing positive improvement in my legs and allowing me to be able to continue with my life!
-Hazel, Lakeland FL
I wanted to try this treatment because of the extreme back pain and spasm I was experiencing. It limited everything I did in my life. There was always a constant fear of the pain coming when I was just trying to live life. When the pain was there is was unbearable. Now after treatment there is very little pain and I am doing 90% of normal life’s activities. I have and will continue to recommend this treatment to anyone who experience these pains.
-Rowna, Lakeland FL
I saw the treatment ad in the newspaper and nothing I had tried in the past 5 years had given me any relief from my symptoms which included being unsteady on my feet, double vision and inability to focus. I was addicted to Lyrica and experiencing many side affects from the medication. Since beginning this treatment I am no longer taking Lyrica, I am more steady on my feet and having less problems with my vision and I am generally more aware of what is going on around me.
-Clyde, Winter Haven FL
I have peripheral neuropathy and a lack of balance and difficulty getting up from a sitting position. The treatments have given me feeling back in my feet and my balance has much improved. Along with these improvements and life in general has much improved.

Metabolic Syndrome-The Undiagnosed potential killer…this story is all too frequent:
Hi Folks! I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you my story. I am 53 yrs old and
15 years ago I was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome & fibromyalgia. My quality of life hasn’t been the greatest throughout those years. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and essential tremors in my hands and legs. I 1st saw Dr Hayes about 10 years ago for chiropractic care and again 3years ago for physical therapy because I was in so much pain I could hardly move. He & his staff helped me tremendously! At that time, Dr Hayes recommended I would benefit from taking Magnesium supplements which I did take until I saw my primary care doctor again when I was done with PT. She said “you don’t need to take those”, so I stopped taking them and of course continued with the many meds that were prescribed to me but never did I feel I was getting better. If I was lucky I had 1 good day a week, truthfully!
Recently starting in May/June 2010 I started getting symptoms of a different type of fatigue, tingling in my feet, confused, pain in my eyes and being unsteady. I even fell a couple times to the ground. I was back and forth to doctors. At 1st it was recommended by my primary care to see a Rheumatogist b/c “it must be the fibromyalgia”. I saw him 4 times in which he prescribed 2 new medicines to treat the fibromyalgia but only to have the symptoms now magnified to my arms/hands, feet/legs, tongue and lips…and it is now August and I’m getting pretty nervous b/c now they think I have MS. I see a neurologist and he orders 2 MRI’s, a nerve test and 2 series of blood tests which all come back normal except for slight deficiency of Vitamin B12.I think great! If that’s all that wrong how lucky am I? I take B12 for 10 days starting mid Sept and then the symptoms are coming back slowly until Oct 25th, they were now magnified 1000 times worse than ever that I went to the ER. The doctors were stumped and recommended I go back to the neurologist. My blood pressure was 184/98 which is another thing that seemed to be occurring the past several months, irregular high BP and I take meds for it!! One Dr. at the ER said he called the neurologist and was told he was surprised I was in the ER but for me to follow up with him asap.I went home scared out of my mind b/c something was seriously wrong but 4 doctors couldn’t give me a straight answer. On Oct 28th, I looked on Dr Hayes website feeling maybe he could help me b/c he did in the past. I then called and he kindly saw me on the 29th.Within 10 minutes of telling Dr Hayes the same thing I told my primary care doctor, the Rheumatologist, the Neurologist and the ER doctors, Dr Hayes says “I know what’s wrong with you, Peripheral Neuropathy and Metabolic Syndrome”
…I couldn’t believe it!! I am sooo grateful for Dr Hayes! I went home and of course did research and saw that he was so right! I started treatment the next day, Friday, the 30th. I have been doing everything just as he told me. My diet has drastically changed for the good of course!, I walk every day and I see him 3x’s a week and I feel Fabulous!!
I still have some symptoms but in between treatments BUT I feel so much better and I have hope that I will become completely well b/c I found a genius of a doctor who for once is treating the symptoms, not putting a band-aid on them with prescription meds!! I do hope that my experience can give some of you hope! My recommendation is call Dr Hayes!! He is so kind and genuinely cares and wants to make a difference for us. I wish the Best of health to you all!

“I have had very good results. My hands had bad arthritis, they have improved. I was walking with a rolo-walker or a cane. I no longer use them. I walk 1-2 miles a day. I will be 89 years old December 7th, 2009. My life has greatly improved.”
-Ms. Clemence Locke, Hanson, MA
I have been suffering from chronic back pain since 2003. I have been told my many specialists and therapists that the long hours I spend on a computer often trigger these kinds of issues. To make matters worse I was involved in a car accident in 2004. My life since then has been filled with pain and depression. I’m a single mother so giving up and going on disability was out of the question. The combination of wanting to give my son a better upbringing than I had as well as wanting to show him the value of hard work kept me going. But as the years went on it became harder and harder to keep up. Eventually my neck would lock up and my back would be in such pain that I couldn’t get out of bed. I went to physical therapy twice. It helped get me back on my feet, but sadly only provided temporary relief. By 2007 I had given up on going back to physical therapy. I didn’t want to put more time and money towards a temporary fix. My doctor prescribed pain killers and muscle relaxers. At first these helped to at least get me to sleep at night by dulling the pain and making me sleepy. But over time they stopped working.
Just recently I was talking with friends and discussing people we knew who were suffering from ongoing chronic pain. Many of them mix alcohol with their medication to dull the pain and could no longer hold a job! Sure, they were all older than I; but this thought frightened me – is that my future? By this point my neck was locking on an almost constant basis, I couldn’t lift my arms up long enough to do my hair, and I was crying every day because I felt so hopeless. So I made another appointment with my doctor and told him of my fears and anxiety about my pain. I wanted to know what was wrong with me once and for all and fix it! He ended up referring me to a local rheumatologist because one of the tests he ran indicated I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. My aunt has that, so I thought it could be possible. It could certainly explain the constant pain. But when I went to see the rheumatologist he told me he didn’t believe it was R.A. He spent about 5 minutes with me and diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. He also told me he “didn’t have time to go over all the symptoms” with me and to “get some exercise and call back” if I didn’t feel better.
I actually felt worse after speaking with the rheumatologist. I felt dismissed and I felt misdiagnosed. I’m no doctor, but the information that he gave me to read on fibromyalgia didn’t seem to match up with what I had been experiencing! I tried calling local doctors who specialized in fibromyalgia for a second opinion, but was turned away because I was not already a patient. Then I did a Google search and found the Health Solutions Group website. After reading through it I finally felt hopeful again – something I hadn’t felt in years! I must’ve sent Dr. Hayes a 5 page email filled with my woes!!! That very afternoon I got a call back from his receptionist Amanda – I had an appointment to see him the next day. Dr. Hayes performed a thorough exam… and most importantly, he listened to me! He told me he didn’t think I had fibromyalgia either. He believed it was an undertreated neck injury and he came up with an aggressive game plan to help me get my pain back under control… no drugs necessary! I’ve been seeing him since December 2008, just over 2 months now, and I feel so much better! I knew things had really improved when I found myself focusing on an annoying hangnail on my finger one day – the thought suddenly entered my head that I was focusing on a hangnail and not my neck or back for a change. I was never so happy to have a hangnail! Now Dr. Hayes is also helping me map out a healthier dietary plan. In just two months the quality my life has drastically improved – I would recommend Dr. Hayes and Health Solutions Group to anyone who has been suffering from chronic pain. I only wish I had found that website sooner!
