I could not thank Dr. Spillman enough for fixing my back.

I owe him my life because he saved my career. I’m in the nursing field and after returning to work I was better than I ever was and I received CNA of the year for 2015. I am forever thankful to him and his team.

I highly recommend Dr. Sam Spillman – With long-term hip tightness and difficulty engaging my glutes (despite practicing yoga 2-3 times a week), I was losing hope for improvement and relief. He is highly-skilled, informative and very personable. Don’t waste another day in pain, get to his office. Now.

I have never had a Chiropractic visit but Dr. Eng was very thorough in her exam and provided great information. I look forward to being under her care and trust her expertise and ability. She and the staff were very welcoming and made me feel very comfortable. After just one visit I already feel better and have great instructions for exercises and activities that will help my lower back. I have and will continue to encourage my family, friends, and colleagues to go to Balance Chiropractic.

Being a CrossFitter and Obstacle Course Racer, I find myself very focused on healing methods that allow me to continue training and pursuing my passions without excessive recovery time.  Dr Spillman understands, first hand, that training and healing don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

In the month since becoming a patient (and their number 1 fan!), I have achieved 4 PRs at Solidarity Crossfit, and added Toes2Bar and Pull Ups back into my repertoire. These are skills I’ve been working on since tearing my rotator cuff and labrum severely 2 years ago. I attribute my success directly to the added flexibility, core strength, range of motion, and mobility I have achieved from my treatments.

Dr Spillman has a deep understanding of tried and true techniques, and a thirst for knowledge and personal growth that leaves him open to new schools of thought, as well.

I believe having a hand in your own health and well being is important, and explored multiple different avenues before finally finding Balance Chiropractic. The decision to become a patient and put my chiropractic health in Dr Spillman’s capable hands was not made lightly, and it is a course of action I will be glad I took for many years to come.

(Also, working with the support staff is never anything less than a pleasure!  It’s so nice to always be greeted with a smile and know that they will do their best to ensure a smooth interaction with my insurance!)

Dr. Sam Spillman is truly the best. I experienced some sudden, intense back pain prior to an extremely important day at work. The pain was to the point where sitting, walking, and bending all led to incredibly sharp pain. I gave a [desperate] call to Balance Chiropractic and, although he was preparing to head out of town for the holidays, he made the time to see me beyond normal office hours. He has gone above and beyond to make sure I’m healing properly and I very much appreciate that he checks in with me every so often to make sure everything is going well. He is also happy to provide advice in regards to fitness and nutrition. As a business owner myself, I cannot recommend him enough. He cares about his clients and does everything in his power to make sure that their experience is a great one.

Dr. Spillman is a master at relieving plantar fascitis pain. As anyone knows who has this malady, that’s worth its weight in gold.

My jaw had been hinged (TMJ–approx. 20% range of motion) for 2 1/2 years when I saw Dr. Spillman for the first time. After the first visit, I had better than 50% range of motion. About six visits later, I was back to 100%! I now only have to go occasionally for maintenance, but I cannot say enough good about Dr. Spillman and Balance Chiropractic for helping me avoid surgery.

I was able to get an appointment quickly for my severe back pain. After a thorough, yet efficient assessment and diagnosis Dr. Eng started me on a treatment regiment for the bulged disc in my lumbar spine. After just two days I am feeling immense relief. Everyone is very kind, and the office is clean and welcoming. I highly recommend!

I had a great experience with Dr. Spillman. He took an extraordinary amount of time with me at the end of the day to try to determine the sources and causes of my pain.

Dr. Spillman is very personable, highly knowledgable, and gave me instant relief! I was warmly received at the office and all my questions were addressed. I was not hurried, and most importantly, I felt comfortable (and chiropractors make me nervous).

Very professional, very efficient, very helpful, and knowledgeable – great results with my complicated frozen shoulder.

From William M.

Dr. Spillman has unusual insight beyond his training. I think many of us expect too much of our health professionals. They are supposed to name and fix our odd problems. The interaction between our expectations and Western Medicine results in a huge, money driven organization based on, “Here, take one of these little blue pills daily for the rest of your life.”

Dr. Spillman’s approach works with a different set of tools, focused on coaxing a body back to health for acute problems as well as chronic ones. He listens, he watches, and he offers effective coaching. He can’t fix my body without my willing participation, and I can’t fix it without his insights and perspectives.

I was visiting Charlottesville (I live in Egypt) when my lower back suddenly ‘snapped’, and I was in pain over a weekend. I found Balance Chiropractic on the Internet and was able to make an appointment on the day I called. Dr. Spillman fit me in in his lunch hour! He gave me a thorough examination, a diagnosis, and fit me in for a week’s worth of therapy so I could attend my daughter’s graduation and make the long plane journey back to Egypt.

Dr. Spillman was attentive, caring, and took the time to listen to my concerns and challenges. He addressed my case with specialized care and didn’t auto-pilot the treatment. Even after the first visit, I felt better when I left than when I went in.

Here is my story of how Dr. Spillman worked his magic to make me pain free! I broke my left clavicle. Really broke it! In shape of an ” X” the ends tucked in muscle tissue. The fabulous Dr. Degnan plated and pinned my clavicle bringing it back to position where it would heal correctly. He did his job well. But I was left with normally occurring scar tissue underneath, intense muscle tightness, pain and my back and posture out of alignment. Daily headaches, difficulty getting comfortable to fall asleep. Numbness and aches in left arm. After my first visit I left feeling loose, relaxed and full of hope. As I was cooking dinner that same night standing and shopping I felt taller and in alignment. Slept great too!… A month or so later I would say I am 95% completely healed. Dr. Spillman has many techniques to solve what is wrong. Definitely not a cookie cutter chiropractor. Woot! And an oh yea! My shoulder and back is happy! Did I mention Dr. Spillman has the best waiting room reading material in town? Come early for your appt and enjoy!

In the years I’ve been running I’ve seen a lot of athletic trainers, physical therapists, chiropractors etc and I can honestly say that Dr. Spillman is the best! This past January I had surgery to repair a labral tear in my hip. Generally it takes three months of recovery before you can begin running again, but at six months post-op I was still having too much pain to even attempt a run. When I moved to Charlottesville this past summer I made an appointment with Dr. Spillman and using a combination of Active Release, Graston (soft tissue mobilization), and traditional chiropractic techniques, he had me running pain-free within three weeks. If you’ve ever been frustrated with a long-term running injury then you know how awesome that is! The same techniques also work with more acute problems – after tripping and hurting my knee, Dr. Spillman had me running again in just four visits. In addition, the office staff (Laura and Hope) are really efficient and friendly. Regardless of what your injury or pain is, Balance Chiropractic and PT is the best place to go!

For seven years I have journeyed with neck pain, occipital neuralgia, headaches, and a variety of associated discomforts.  I own a plethora of medical and therapeutic appliances that promised relief but could not provide long-term wellness.  I did not leave organic nutrition out of my arsenal.  I was just as faithful in the inclusion of the best supplements common and exotic, but for all this there was nothing that alleviated the daily struggle to feel well, reduce the pain, and function normally. I have surrendered a great deal of my wealth to general medical practitioners and other chiropractic practitioners were given their opportunity, but I found disappointment again and again; then I found Balance Chiropractic.

My care under Dr. Spillman’s direction has been thoughtfully paced, personalized, informative, and decidedly yielding restoration, healing and renewal.  The relief and restoration have been so profound that recently a friend remarked that my demeanor and countenance was bright and lifted. If your journey is as mine was, please consider spending time with Dr. Spillman.  I have every confidence that you won’t regret it and you may be blessed to bypass many miles and misfortunes on the broken road.

I have tried a lot of different things since I began having pain in my hips and back 2 years ago, and this has been the best treatment I’ve received by far. Dr. Spillman is focused on fixing the cause of my pain, not just the symptoms. I would recommend him to anyone having chronic pain.

From Dulcy G.

After more than a year of traditional treatments and PT for bilateral ankle tendonitits, I started seeing Dr. Spillman.  He helped me regain mobility in both ankles and reduced my pain level to where I am going back to sports and dance.  I’m impressed with the entire office’s professionalism and ability to treat sports and chronic problems in innovative ways.

From Geri D.

I was referred to Dr. Sam Spillman by my personal physician, after I started experiencing some severe back pain for the first time in my life. I am a physically fit person and have a job which requires lifting, but have never had a problem with my back.   Hesitant at first, I must admit the adjustments and exercises  have proved to be so beneficial and, in a relatively short period of time, I am virtually pain free.   I found Dr. Spillman refreshingly honest with his assessment of my problem, genuine in his concern and specific in his treatment. His office readily accommodated me as a new patient, I secured an appointment quickly and I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor.

From Alyssa M.

I was referred to Dr. Spillman by one of the best spinal surgeons in the area and, despite my belief that chiropractic care was a waste of time, I scheduled an appointment. I am shocked by how much Dr. Spillman has helped me. He is a brilliant doctor who focuses on achieving results and I’m happy to admit my beliefs were unfounded. I was completely wrong about the chiropractic profession. Not only did he fix my neck and back, but he cured various aches and pains I didn’t realize were curable. Moreover, Dr. Spillman was able to diagnose and help me with a recurring knee problem when other doctors were unable to figure it out. In short, he is well respected by his peers and the community, and it would be difficult to find a better chiropractor! I also underwent physical therapy at Balance and cannot stress how wonderful it was to receive treatment in a cooperative environment. Julie and Julia are both fantastic physical therapists and their ability to easily communicate with Dr. Spillman allowed for a more appropriate and personalized treatment plan. I honestly can’t imagine a better office.

From Tim W

I would recommend Dr. Spillman to anyone. I’m a competitive athlete (ultimate & olympic lifting), and I’ve been dealing with hamstring problems for years. Dr. Spillman was the first medical professional to identify the problem at the core of my recurring injury. I’m thrilled to say that I’m running pain free, and as a result of using my hamstring and glutes correctly, I’m more explosive as an athlete too.
