"I had a case of sciatica and I had to leave my job. I tried a chiropractor and was directed by my doctor to a back surgeon. He said I had no chance of ever recovering and I would have pain all my life. He recommended epidural shots whenever the pain got too much to handle. That is when I called David. After two visits I felt great. I got on my bicycle and even mowed the grass."

"You treated me in 2011 for mild global hypokinesis. You used laser therapy in 10 treatments. I had my first EKG done today and i received a clean bill of health! Thanks much for your friendship and good heart."

I visited the Center for Cooperative Medicine ~ 4 years ago; I (and my family) suffered with chronic migraine headaches for over 30 years. They affected my quality of life. I was taking, on average, 9 (nine) Replax tablets per month. I knew I couldn't continue in this manner, did some research and found David Rindge at the Center for Cooperative Medicine. I read several of the articles in his Laser Library and decided it sounded like a very positive solution. David was wonderful and thoughtful; he took time to explain the benefits of Light Laser (in conjunction with acupuncture) and walked me through the entire process. It was painless and believe it or not, many times relaxing!
I am delighted to say that after about 10 treatments my migraine pain was virtually eliminated. I have ~ 3 migraines per year now (brought on my exercise and diet issues). My husband was skeptical at first, I am an RN and he couldn’t believe that I would pursue this course of treatment. Well, the results have made him a believer; he is amazed at the results.
I am seeing David now for Rotator Cuff issues and feel very confident that his treatment will prevent an unwanted surgery and eliminate my shoulder and arm pain.
Thanks are not enough; bless you David, for dedicating your life to helping those who are in pain.

My chief complaint was pain in both feet due to both severe plantar fasciitis and the results of a failed surgery. Symptoms included ongoing soreness, circulation irregularities, burning, pulling & aching during and after weight bearing.
The methods I tried before include custom orthotics, stretching, massage, hot/cold baths, night splints, anti-inflammatories, cortisone injections, ESWT (extracorporeal shock wave treatment) hypnosis and surgery. None of the above methods produced any significant ongoing relief since the onset of this condition almost six years ago.
The positive results of my treatments at the Center for Cooperative Medicine have been and continue to be dramatic. I am truly amazed (and joyful) over the significant reduction of all the above symptoms! My pain level is minimal and my feet seem to be continuously getting stronger and more fully functional. It has been four years since my surgery and there is simply no other explanation for this kind of improvement. Laser acupuncture works! Furthermore, I always look forward to my appointments because David, Sheila and Margaret provide such a caring and professional environment. Thank you!

David first treated me successfully for pain in both wrists which had been misdiagnosed as carpal tunnel syndrome. A respiratory infection and lingering cough were resolved in a single treatment. Similarly, David was able to restore normal function and feeling to a dislocated thumb in one session.
But in 2004 when I experienced severe abdominal pain and was diagnosed with gallstones and pancreatitis, David really proved himself. His treatment with acupuncture, laser therapy and pulsed electromagnetic fields was immediately effective at alleviating all pain and discomfort. With David’s advice and encouragement, I have gotten rid of 50 pounds, revolutionized my diet and adopted a truly healthy lifestyle.

Just a note to say thank you for your help in getting rid of all the pain I was in. I am doing great! Eating, back to work and although there is some stiffness and a very small amount of pain at times, I feel great.
I saw the neurosurgeon…He was pleased I had been to you for treatment. He has great regard for Chinese medicine.
“No surgery” (Praise the Lord.)
I’m so glad Rafael went to you, and he was very pleased. He felt better after his first treatment.

I want to thank you so much for the tremendous success I have experienced with the four ailments I have had over the past seven years utilizing your non-invasive treatments of low level laser and acupuncture. What a powerful combination! The chronic lower back problems I’ve experienced for almost 25 years was healed almost 100%. I find that my body weight and specifically, the size of my belly contributes to the remaining pain I experience from time to time in my lower back. The residual pain level of about a “three” (at its worse) is diminished by proper diet, stretching and exercise bringing the pain level to zero. It’s been seven years, since you treated my lower back condition that I have had a significant increase in mobility. With regard to the tennis and golf elbow conditions I developed about four years ago; they have completely healed since those treatments and I experience no pain, whatsoever.
The most recent planters faciitis and heel spur condition I developed about a year ago is almost completely healed after only four treatments. I’m almost speechless with the elation!
The freedom of movement throughout my aging body is a godsend. I want to tell the world about the results I have and continue to experience. It’s important for people to know just how relaxing and enjoyable your treatments are, too. Then, to offer patients a monetary credit for each referral they provide you, well, who can beat that! You truly exhibit a business entity that involves itself in the investment of others. Thank You.

Lower back pain and discomfort interfered with my ability to sit for any length of time. I felt I had nothing to lose after having gone through traditional medical treatments, and I would at least give David an opportunity. Wow! What a pleasant surprise to me that I can again be actually comfortable sitting-pain free for any length of time. I'm thankful that I no longer need to consider invasive surgeries that had been recommended by traditional medical professionals who had almost convinced me with x-rays of my spine showing deteriorations (age related.
I highly recommend Center for Cooperative Medicine as a place for healing.

I came to the Center for Cooperative Medicine because of back and neck pain. Results of treatment were great changes in muscles - they softened - + all pain gone. The answer I have been looking for for 18 years.
David taught me to control my blood sugar and blood pressure naturally, and his treatment for my shoulder, back and knee pain was immediately effective. Sheila has helped me to find peace!
David was able to quickly eliminate the pain in my right shoulder as well as strengthening it so that I was able to compete and win in international competition.

After going to a medical doctor and a massage therapist, I still could not hear out of my left ear. After my first visit with David Rindge, I was able to hear!! Also, the TMJ pain that I had had for many years had disappeared! I visit David whenever I have a health concern. I always get clear answers to my questions. Whenever I have pain, David’s treatment is quick and effective.

You cannot imagine how it feels to be pain free and fear free after having spent my entire life under bondage of both. I just wanted to thank you and tell you I think you have one of the best and most wonderful programs anywhere. I have been in therapy off and one for years and nothing was able to help me before I came here. Sometimes I lay in bed and just think about how I feel no pain in my body and about how I don’t have the underlying fear nagging atme all my waking hours. Keep up the good work.

Coming to you after severely re-spraining my ankle was one of the best health investments I have ever made. The swelling was reduced by half after the first treatment and half again after the second treatment. I was walking without crutches by day four.

I was in a lot of pain for 3 years with arthritis and 5 pinched nerves in shoulders, head and upper back. I had been to many doctors, lots of physio therapy. I cannot take medication and don't want to. They did not help at all.
With just 10 treatments I am feeling much, much better and I know I will continue to do so. David + Sheila are such caring people and they make you feel so positive about the future free of pain. Thank you, David and Sheila.

David helped me overcome headaches and other stress-related health problems. My energy has improved 100% and my immune system is strong. Sheila and David Rindge genuinely care about the wellbeing of their clients. A visit to the Center for Cooperative Medicine is the best thing I can do to improve myself holistically. I am a returning client because it works for me!

As you well know, when I first called you from the hospital I was gravely ill. Your dietary advice, therapy and encouragement have completely reversed a condition that my medical doctors had been unable to address. I was healed-body, mind, and spirit!

It has now been over six weeks since my last treatment. I have not been using any anti-inflammatory medications for over the past two months, and my shoulder pain and elbow pain remain at a level '2' and my thumb is pain free..…
I will be returning to David for more treatments as I have a new foot ailment to treat. The good news is that based on my previous experiences, I anticipate rapid improvement .
David's enthusiasm for good health and pain-free living is a catalyst for change in the patients he treats.

My name is Jack Lehr, and I am a snowbird from Columbus, Ohio. I retired after 35 years as a teacher and administrator in secondary education. I injured my hamstring running up a flight of stairs. Sixteen months of pain, two visitis to a Sports Med Orthopedic Surgeon, multiple visits to a physical therapist, and fifteen plus visits to chiropractor did not improve my situation. I even had a full body bone scan. Out of sheer frustration, I decided to try Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I had never talked to anyone about acupuncture. So, I started this new endeavor by reading books on TCM. Next, I visited several TCM local offices and determined that I was most comfortable in the office of David Rindge on Strawbridge Avenue in Melbourne.
I had a total of nine treatments. After the second treatment, the five inch long and inch in diameter knot in my hamstring disappeared. This was the same knot that the sports med physician x-rayed a year earlier to make sure it was not calcified. Following that treatment, I was able to walk at a decent pace for periods of thirty minutes or more without any pain during or following exercise. It had been almost a full year since I was able to do that.
David also worked on both shoulders and my wrist with good results. All three have improved in flexibility. David was totally dedicated to getting me to feel better.
Treatment included both laser and needle acupuncture. Both were pain free. Over the course of nine visits, I had over a hundred needles (an estimate since most of the needles were put into my back and back of my leg) placed in various parts of my body and I only felt one. It gave me a sensation as though someone was pulling a hair from the back of my neck.
Am I happy? I am totally elated. David, Sheila and Rhonda, thank you.

I came to the Center for Cooperative Medicine because of Meniere's - had daily dizzy spells. Results of treatment were excellent - had no dizzy spells since 1st treatment.

3 times doctors overmedicated me with strong BP pills. Twice I almost died + last time they gave me a cardiac arrest because nobody bothered to check my medical history which shows I cannot tolerate high dosage medicines + beta blockers are lethal (was given pills in hospital causing cardiac arrest.) Each time I went to David + he cured me, first when I had chronic diarrhea + lost 30 lbs, second when I was I so weak I need nursing help (the herbals cured me) + third after the cardiac arrest + when I had gum infection + bad cough. I am so afraid of doctors + dentists. The only person I trust is David because he listens + takes care of all my symptoms with herbals + acupuncture which cannot hurt me.
