I love that you guys Do chiropractic in a different way and take away all the anxiety

Tena W

Amazed that I have been living in pain so long, and after 2 visits I can feel a difference.

Mark L

I have had numerous positive experiences at Balanced Living Chiropractic. The staff is professional, and friendly. I appreciate how Dr. Joe talked me through my treatments and answered any questions I had.

Jill S

I have a very painful lower back and hips. I never would have believed that getting my Axis balanced on my neck would fix my lower back problems. Also I am way more flexible in my whole body now. I am so thankful that I found you guys. You have helped me immensely. Thank you

Auli K

Dr Perin is the bomb! He is extremely knowledgeable in so many areas of holistic health, wellness, nutrition, supplementation, and of course NUCA chiropractic care. When I came in for the first time several years ago I was in intolerable neck pain and lower back pain and spasms from old injuries and a lifetime of being out of alignment. Over time Dr Perin has brought me steadily back into alignment, relieving the pain and bringing physical balance to my body. He and his office are second to none – I cannot recommend them enough!

Scott N

Best ever thank you

Carmen G

Dr P was very compassionate and took the time to explain his procedures and plan for my recovery. All the therapists and staff were kind and professional. Highly recommend

Anna B

I have strong confidence in the cervical chiropractic method, and in Dr. Perin. He knows his stuff and completes the adjustment with posture education. I appreciated being given a quote for one year of treatment before I decided to go ahead with it. I am receiving treatment for scoliosis and lombardosis. I am not under the illusion that these can be cured, but am looking to arrest the progress of this condition, which can leave one crippled. I am confident that it is being arrested with this treatment.–D. Dunn

Debbie D

It was a pleasure I enjoyed every time I was there. Everyone was nice and respectful and always made sure I was at easy and taken care of. Really the best group of people.

Jay Y

I would highly recommend your services to anyone needing chiropractic care. Dr. Woulff is thorough and cares about your total body health. Danielle always makes you feel welcome and comfortable.

Erl T

Very pleased to have learned more of my disabilty. I have received more stability and increased mobility along with answeres to my questions. This is a outstanding clinic, with very interested and capable staff. Thanks very much for all your efforts SFB

Steve B

I have experienced neck/shoulder pain for over 20 years. I have only had eight adjustments and it is life changing. I work at a computer all day it is so much better with out the nagging pain. I have also been able to go on long road trips without neck support. Highly recommend this procedure and Dr. Perin. Alita

Alita

Professional, informative, helpful, decreased my pain rather quickly

Rene R

I was Satisfied and impressed!

Dave P

I’ve had the best experience! I suffered from debilitating migraines for a very long time. In April 2019 I was waking up every night for 2 weeks with them. I was getting ready to go to Alaska to go fishing in the ocean and was feeling pretty nervous about it. I was thinking about canceling my trip. I heard about Nucca chiropractic along time ago but forgot about it. After every night for 2 weeks woke up and googled nucca. This office was the first one I saw. I called, got in the same day. I was the type of patient they could help! I’ve heard that before sol tried to refrain my excitement. They were right! I got in 2 treatments prior to Alaska and was perfectly fine my whole trip! They have totally changed my life and quality of life. I’m on a maintenance program now and tend to hold my adjustments pretty well which are so soft and gentle you can’t tell your getting adjusted! The traditional chiropractors I’d seen could never get my adjustments to hold. I tried a neurologist, Accupuncture, physical therapy and massage for my migraines as well. Balanced living has been better than the miracle I’ve prayed for so many years! I would recommend to anyone!

Heidi B

I’ve been seeing Dr. Perin for several months. The treatments I’ve received have been helping with relieving my pain and therefore I’m healing. Thank you, Dr. Perin!

Bill G

When I get a “crick” in my neck, Dr. Joe knows what to do to fix it, then I feel great again. We have gone to Dr. Joe for years, we highly recommend him.

Allen Q

WOW. I’ve gone to two treatments and NOW I CAN SLEEP! After much on-line research regarding my symptoms (stemming from forward head posture) including, sinus issues, sleep apnea-like symptoms,breathing issues, tinitus, fullness in ears, dizziness, and something I can only describe as “brain movement” for NO REASON… I visited two chiropractors, my GP, Life Line Screening, ENT, the emergency room, had an ultrasound an EKG, and a partridge in a pear tree. I was treated for allergies, used a posture pump, sleep hero, many posture/neck/shoulder exercises .. but still was uncomortable & not sleeping well. I was a mess & about ready to give up, but Thankfully, I found NUCCA & Dr Perin, x-rays showed my axis 8 degrees off & after two quick, painless adjustments, I was able to sleep uninterrupted for almost 6 straight hours. For the first time in over a YEAR I had uninterrupted, good nights sleep, & I’ve been sleeping & breathing much better (sinuses are clear!!) this whole week! I’m still amazed by the NUCCA treatments, going in for my third treatment today &and look forward to many more with Dr Perin! THANK YOU for giving me my LIFE BACK!! JZ

Jeff Z

I was always afraid of Chiropractors, Dr. Perin debunked all my misinformation and treated my dizziness issues. Aligning the vertebrae was so subtle yet amazing improvement over all. I am now aware that my spine dictates my entire body’s health. Thank you. Kitty Mareschi September 10, 2019

Kitty M

My family and I have been seeing Dr. Perin for over 5 years and have benefited from the adjustments. He also has provided information on healthy living with regards to foods we eat and dietary supplements. I recommend him and his staff highly. JMT

John T

Wonderful service. Dr Perin’s adjustments allow me to train for my next marathon.

Emil K

I love the gentle corrections that are done.

Jeanie B

I started working with Dr. Perin almost two years ago. At that time I had about a 1.5 degree misalignment on each of my Atlas and Axis. It took about a year before they were very stable, and I had dropped to a 6 week adjustment schedule. My legs were also at the same length for the first time in 10 years Other Chiropractors didn’t know the cause. Dr. Perin did and fixed it, among other symptoms in my back. Unfortunately, I was rear ended a month later, by a careless driver. My neck was now out twice as bad as it had been a year prior! Well, it only took about 6 months for Dr. Perin adjusted me back to neutral. I have recommended Dr. Perin to everyone who I think may have an upper cervical issue.

Harry B

Dr really cares about his patients and their health. I would highly recommend him

Lana L

I was thrilled someone finally took me serious about this neck pain. DR Wulff did a thorough examination and after just one treatment I began to feel better. It is a joy to deal with all the people that work at Balanced Living Chiropractic. Thank you!

Rose A

The only care that works for me, low impact upper cervical. If other Chiropractic hasn’t helped you or even caused pain, you should definitely give NUCCA technique a try.

Deborah E

Dr Perin is a Godsend! He is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about NUCCA. He has made a difference in my life. I’ve tried many types of treatments but NUCCA has given results almost immediately. I highly recommend NUCCA and Dr. Perin!

Sheila B

I felt he was sympathetic and sincere in finding a cure. He was always on time with the appointment, which I appreciated, and maintained a pleasant place to come and find solace from pain. I liked his approach, overall.

Dennis N

Very friendly staff and Dr Perin always takes time to listen about my ailments but at the same time is efficient with my time.

Tiffany P

Dr. Perin is wonderful :0)

Kourtney N

It’s exciting to feel good again!!!

Laura M

I’m finely getting my alignment to stay. I’m beyond excited to be feeling like I’m making progress with my health.

Juanita A

Grateful!!!

Laura M

I am always met with gentle kindness…

Sarazan T

I no longer have jaw or hip issues. I would highly recommend Dr. Perin.

Nan R

I’m very pleased with the progress and results of the adjustments

Arden G

Amazing. Immediate relief from my lack of balance symptoms.

Dwight

Helped me heal of breast cancer. Very relaxing, balanced approach to help heal, and allow my body to heal itself. No surgery. Chemo, radiation, just healthy alternative healing methods.

Mary W

With my neck issues Dr Joe has made my life so much easier, he is a big part of my regular maintenance to keep my life healthy. I couldn’t do it with out his help.

Cindy B

Very satisfied.

Ted T

Dr. Parin has helped me so much. He is very caring and easy to talk to. He actually cares about my problem

Lana L

I was in excruciating pain. Could only sleep in a recliner. Dr. Perin came in very early to work me in. He explained my condition and spent extra time to help me. A very knowledgeable and compassionate man. I would highly recommend Balanced Living Chiropractic!

Linda W

Dr Perin & Danielle are wonderful! They are always professional and make you feel welcome & right at home. Dr. Perin’s expertise is second to none! He’s so knowledgeable and patiently answers all questions. I highly recommend him if you have a specific issue or if you just need an occasional maintenance program.

Elaine R

Dr. Perin’s adjustments are subtle and delicate, but precise and effective. Less can definitely be more. For me, the impact is immediate, and the results are lasting. It is relatively easy to get appointments, and the office is clean, comfortable, and run in a professional manner.

Reggie M

I had an excellent experience seeing Dr. Perrin. He was able to alleviate the pain that I was experiencing. I have been leery of chiropractics in the past but my experience with Dr. Perrin has changed my mind.

Corey R

So far the treatment seems to be working. I still have significant back pain, but the incidence of acute and sudden pain is diminishing. Alas! I know not whether that is due to treatments or the fact that I have backed off the more arduous work and recreation that I formerly indulged in. Better that you should interview me when (and if)l reach my ultimate goal of pain free living. If that happens, I will give your treatment glowing reviews. The staff and Dr Joe are absolutely professional and enjoyable to be around.

George S

After seeing several chiropractors over the years, I finally went to see Joe and could not be happier with the results. He is the only guy that could adjust a rib that was very painful and He got me standing up straight with my head in the correct position. I am so pleased with the results that I have sent my daughter to see him to help her headaches and stiff neck. She also found relief. Joe really knows his stuff and I have been recommending him to friends and family for a few years now.

Mike A

I am very happy with the help I have received from Dr. Perine.

Jeanie B

My experience with Balanced Living Chiropractic is 100% positive. Dr. Perin is a very conscientious doctor who truly cares about the people who seek his help. My neck has been stiff for years – and I have experienced such relief in my neck. I’ve also had a nerve problem from my jaw and that has basically disappeared. I highly recommend Dr. Perin. Danielle, his office support, is equally as caring and helpful. You can’t go wrongt.

Lynne L

Dr. Perin (and staff) are very pleasant and competent. Thankful to be in his care.

Welby B

It has been a wonderful experience getting very effective adjustments from Dr. Perin at Balanced Living Chiropractic. It helped the level of my daily pain sustained from neck injury of a long ago. It is wonderful that NUCCA method can deal with health issues at the root level rather than just managing symptoms. It has also helped reducing some allergic reactions that increased over years. Highly recommend this personable and professional doctor!

Itoe R

Excellent experience! Unfortunately I live two hours and my work recently has prohibited me from taking time away but when I can make the time I will continue to receive treatment from Balanced Living Chiropractic

Tracy A

Dr. Perin is so wonderful and kind! Our son, Wyatt, was so nervous to start NUCCA. Dr. Perin has been so great with him and Wyatt truly looks forward to his visits. Dr Perin even sent Wyatt a card for his birthday! We have been so happy with his adjustments and noticed a lot of improvements in his behavior as well. We cannot recommend Dr. Perin enough!!!

Wyatt H

Dr Perin/staff are really professional and nice- it’s always a pleasant experience

Barbara M

Dr. Perin is wonderful, I am truly grateful for his caring & highly professional skills.

Roni V

I love everything about it from the check in to the adjustment to the check out after the zero gravity chair with a blanket. The adjustments are gentle but effective and everything is communicated clearly. I’m really a big fan of Balanced Living Chiropractic!!

Kelly B

Dr. Perin has helped me so much with my migraines and fibromyalgia pain. When I first came to see him a year ago, I was taking over the counter pain meds every single day, and had been for years. Now I’m not even sure of the last time that I took a pain pill. I believe in what he does so much that I became his chiropractic assistant, and am so glad that I have a job where I can spread the message about NUCCA and all of the wonderful things it can do, and support our patients as they find the path to happier, healthier, pain free lives. Thank you Dr. Perin!

Danielle R

Very good

Annette B

My neck used to feel like it was on crooked, after several appt. I felt so much better so now I just go every 2 months to get adjusted you have to go see Dr. Joe He is not one bit pushy, he really has lots of concern over you

Darcey S

There is no one like Dr. Joe!!! Love love love him….just one problem, I wish he lived in Longview! 🙂

Kaye K

Doctor Parin & staff very friendly, warm hearted, people oriented, always helping others. I felt comfortable talking to Doctor Parin. A great chiropractor!

Karen S

Awesome! My vertigo is virtually gone and the nausea as well.

Brian A

I personally as a rule hate doctors, but doctor Joe is great. He has frequently given advice on natural ways to stay healthy. An we truly appreciate everything he
does

Chantelle W

I have had long term neck problems(over ten years), after some treatments by Dr. Joe, I have been doing great. It is very nice not to have to think about my neck or the pain. Thanks!

Bob C

Love doctor Joe. Made me feel much better.

Deb R

Dr Joe is very knowledgeable about the body and what affects it. His depth goes far beyond “just” NUCCA chiropractic. He understands the interplay of diet, supplements, and many other facets of medical knowledge. And… He’s very friendly and informative!

Scott N

We were happy with our results. Right now I feel as though we have been living at the doctors and physical therapy offices. As soon as I can get through all of this we will be back to see you. I am going to need alot of straightening out. Ruth Rudolph

Ron And Ruth R

Dr. Perin is a superstar practitioner who goes above and beyond to help his patients. What’s more, his treatments are incredibly effective. We are very grateful for his help with our family!

Kendra J

In the past year I’ve enjoyed getting to know Dr. Perin and gained a lot of understanding about the NUCCA method. He has been great to work with and I’m feeling much better than I had in a long time. There are at least 3 or 4 others who we’ve sent to see Dr. Perin and I’ve only heard good reports form them as well. Thank you for all you’ve done to help us!

Dave M

I have recommended you to several people. 🙂

Maria F

How would anyone feel about getting their quality of life back? Great!! Dr. Perin not only has the knowledge to help his patients but the empathy for the patient’s physical situation. He helps his patients to understand how NUCCA works thus creating a team effort. His receptionist, Daniel is also a valuable part of team as she is always there with a smile and willingness to work with you regarding finding that perfect spot on the schedule. With Dr. Perin you get the highest quality of professionalism and a heart to go with it.

Gina S

I liked going to balanced living chiropractic. One of our daughters got married in March and I am not financially ready to come back yet.

Barb E

Balanced Living Chiropractic has a very inviting office atmosphere. I appreciate the featured articles that are posted along with the various reading materials on hand. I’m always learning something new and interesting. However, since Dr. Perin is always so punctual I don’t always get to finish what I started 🙂

Mary T

I love Dr. Perin! Not only is he knowledgeable about well being he is also personable and always makes me feel balanced when I leave. I would surely recommend him to all my friends and family.

Lynn W

Shoulder Pain

quoteI cannot recommend Dr. Joe Perin highly enough. He is an active listener, extremely personable, easy to talk to, and is very committed to making you feel well and functional again.

I have, for the last 20 years, been to my share of professionals in western, eastern and homeopathic circles because of a myriad of health issues. I have been able to take something from most of these different circles to find my way to better health.

One nagging issue I could not seem to find a resolution for, however, was the pain/soreness I had had in my right shoulder ever since injuring that area in 1989. Physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and “regular” chiropractors did not help alleviate my discomfort for long and I am not one to take daily medication to just mask the real, underlying problem. Everything I tried ended up being just temporary fixes and relief never lasted. Feeling discomfort on my right side had become my daily norm and it was something with which I had mostly learned to live.

Fast forward to my acupuncturist recommending Dr. Perin to me last fall. Believe me when I say I am a very skeptical 50 plus year old individual. I thought the whole concept of this NUCCA stuff was highly suspect and how in the world could such seemingly slight pressure on the neck and behind the ear do anything at all? Where was all the bone crunching, cracking and manipulating for heaven’s sake?

After just a few treatments, though, I did feel a difference but I was concerned that, like everything else I had tried, this too would not be a permanent fix.

I am very happy to report that I have been so pleased and impressed with the results! Normal is my normal now. I do not feel the daily soreness or discomfort I had lived with for 23 years.

So again, I cannot recommend Dr. Perin highly enough. From one who had no success with regular chiropractors and many other forms of treatment I am so glad I gave Dr. Perin and NUCCA a try. I certainly had nothing to lose and I ended up gaining a much better normal.”

Back Pain

quoteHow do you thank someone who relieves your chronic daily pain? There are never enough words to show how grateful you are every time you sit and stand, get in or out of the car, and everything that used to hurt doesn’t. So you tell every living soul you come across that winces when they hurt, that there is help. You don’t have to hurt every day anymore. The gratitude goes beyond mere words, the thanks are not enough, so I share my story as often as I am able. A life without pain is pretty awesome.

I thought I just had to accept this daily pain. Sometimes it was better than other days. I could always get another Cortizone shot if it got too bad. The risks are there, but the pain eases up for awhile. Then I heard about Dr. Joe and this new chiropractic method, and that it helps get you out of pain. I finally went. After my 1st adjustment the pain was gone. I had tears in my eyes when I stood up and it didn’t hurt. How did he do that? How long does it last? Six months later I’m still going to see Dr. Joe and I still have no pain. You’d tell everyone too!!”

– Janni G., Vancouver, WA

Car Accident Injury

quotebeforeWhen I was first introduced to the NUCCA approach to Chiropractic (after a bad car accident where I received a double whiplash) I was a bit skeptical, but the introduction came from my more traditional Chiropractor in my old home town.

Dr. Joe Perin patient reviews

“This 50 year old is feeling better than I have in years…”

Dr. Joe Perin was exceptional from the first evaluation. His approached was organized, very human, and deliberate with the goal to get me better as soon as possible. I could go into a long description of the process, but the bottom line is that this 50 y.o. is feeling better than I have in years and I have recovered from my accident.Dr. Joe treated my neck exceptionally, but went beyond to suggest other areas that would assist in the process which I’m glad I implemented.I highly recommend Dr. Joe Perin. He is very skilled, listens well and delivered great results for me.”

– Bruce B., Happy Valley, OR

Migraine Headaches

quoteI began having migraine headaches when I was in high school almost 15 years ago. I struggled with my studies, and missed a lot of school. No one could find the cause for my headaches. I began taking Naproxen so I could manage during the attacks. When my fiance began to be overwhelmed with how much of my life was consumed by my migraines and how difficult it was to plan vacations or events, never knowing when I may become debilitated from the pain, I decided there must be a reason for my symptoms that could be fixed.

I began looking at alternative treatments such as acupuncture and general chiropractic, but the migraines continued. My Aunt called me one day to tell me about NUCCA care, which a friend of hers spoke highly about after receiving care for her own headaches. She passed along Dr. Perin’s name, and after looking at his website, I called to make an appointment. I’m not really sure what I expected when I went to see him. I admit, I was surprised by how gentle the adjustment was…but more surprised when I realized a couple days after my 3rd adjustment that I hadn’t had a migraine in 2 days. I became obsessed with making sure I was still in alignment so the headaches couldn’t come back. We just got back from a migraine-free week in Scotland, and I haven’t looked for a bottle of meds in over 4 months!”

– Courtney F., Brush Prairie, WA

Fibromyalgia

quoteI have been a long time sufferer of undiagnosed pain. My MD wanted to label my symptoms as Fibromyalgia. I refused to accept that there was nothing besides pain medication that could help my condition. I wanted to be WELL, not simply mask my symptoms.

Dr. Joe Perin patient reviews

“I avoided a life full of medication and constant pain.”

A neighbor gave me the book, “What time Tuesday”, and as soon as I closed it, I searched for an Upper Cervical Doctor near me. That is how I found Dr. Perin. I was relieved to hear that he used a low-force technique, and was shocked at my results. My headaches were GONE within 2 weeks, my leg pain faded away, the nerve pain in my arms and hands disappeared. I finally had my life back! I avoided a life of medications and constant pain by seeing Dr. Perin. Not a day goes by that I am not grateful for Dr. Perin and the NUCCA technique.”– Melanie H., Portland OR

Lower back, hip and neck pain

quoteI was a recently retired US Army veteran looking for a chiropractor that would take a voucher from the VA. Could not find any chiropractic clinic to take me because no one new how to bill VA. Dr Perin took me in and said he’ll worry about the billing later…he said he will figure it out. Dr Perin helped me out with my lower back, hip and neck pain from all the wear and tear for the years in the army. Go see this guy if you need healing…he is a genuine guy and supports veterans!!!”

Michael B., 1/29/2016

Cervical Stenosis

quoteI need to start off by saying I read reviews but have never written one before this. I feel that my experience with Balanced Living Chiropractic MUST be shared.

I started having neck pain about a year ago, I was told the x-rays showed bone spurs which alone should not be causing as much pain as I was having. An MRI a couple months later revealed that I had Cervical Stenosis – narrowing of the spinal canal in the neck. Turning my head to back out of my driveway became excruciating.

I had tried physical therapy, usual chiropractic treatments, heat, ice, etc….Nothing relieved the pain for longer than a few hours. A friend of mine knows a lady who suffers from a diagnosis similar to mine and said this was the only thing that helped her. She was kind enough to give me Dr. Perin’s phone number. I called immediately.

To make a long story short, once we were able to determine that he was able to treat my condition, things moved very quickly. I began to see improvement within the first week for sure. Soon after that I could actually turn my head to back out of the driveway – pain free! I could do so many more things that I couldn’t do even a month ago.

The adjustments are very subtle and I don’t even realize that he is doing them. It focuses on one specific area in the spine called the Atlas. Each visit, my progress is monitored so I know how far I have come since I began. Although it has only been a little over a month, I have almost forgotton how much my neck used to bother me. I have even referred my teenage daughter here for her knee problems. After discussing it with Dr. Perin, I have learned that a misalignment in the spine can put undue pressure on knees and other joints. My daughter claims that her knee is “so much better” and it has only been less than a month.

I am so glad I found Balanced Living Chiropractic and wish I found out about it sooner!”

– Jackie B.

Nerve pain

quoteDr. Perin is the best! I had reached the end of the road trying to treat my nerve pain, after being referred to him from another chiropractor, I couldn’t have been happier. I felt like he really listens and takes a sincere interest in your recovery. I have to admit, at first I was skeptical because there was NO WAY such a light pressure could do anything, but I am happy to report that after 2 months my nerve pain that stumped every other Doctor is gone. He is knowledgeable and courteous and has only your well being in mind.

– Jackie B., 4/5/2016

Auto Accident

quoteWhen I first started to come I was pretty lopsided. My x-ray showed my spine was going left and my head wasn’t on straight. I had headaches, this was due to an auto accident 25 years ago and multiple right knee surgeries. It took 3 adjustments to get straightened out. Once this started happening I noticed the headaches going away. Finally after 25 years of headaches, I have none. I can tell when I go longer than I should without an adjustment with the work I do. Once I get back in my backaches and headaches are gone. It really makes a difference.”

– Angela Buller, 11/09/2015

Debilitating Back Pain

quoteCan I get a 6th star for this place? Dr. Perin and Balanced Living are such a breath of fresh air. I spend so much time in the offices of doctors and health care professionals who make me feel rushed and poorly cared for. I find myself constantly second guessing them and feeling as if I have to micromanage my own care, for which I am poorly equipped. On top of feeling as if I’m not benefiting from the care at all. So being able to turn myself over to an attentive Dr. and see such great results is such a relief. His knowledge of nutrition and supplements is a huge bonus and I find myself regularly calling or emailing with a question in regard to either. My husband and I both see Dr. Perin and have experienced significant health benefits. NUCCA in general has made such a drastic improvement in our health. My husband has a fractured back and has dealt with back issues from minor nagging pain, to severely debilitating pain for years. After seeing many different chiropractors we discovered NUCCA and have never looked back. With regular maintenance he is completely pain free, and without having to take any pain medication. Something he’s never experienced under any other care. We’re absolutely thrilled and couldn’t recommend Dr. Perin more highly.”

– Jessica Davis

Severe neck problem

quoteDr. Perin saved me from surgery! I’ve had a severe neck problem for over 8 years. It was slowly getting worse and I had to crack it every hour or two for relief. Usually I could get 4-6 loud pops at a time. I’ve spent thousands of dollars over the years on regular chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, etc., only to have temporary relief. I thought my only option left was surgery, until a friend told me about NUCCA. I was very skeptical at first, but after another testimonial from a co-worker with a similar condition, then I decided to try it. I couldn’t have made a better decision and wish I would have learned about NUCCA years ago. After almost 3 months of going to Dr. Perin, I don’t have to crack my neck anymore! I have to drive over 40 miles one way to see him, but never think twice about it because of the relief that I have gotten. I highly recommend him to anyone.”

– Todd Foster

Disc disease and whiplash

quoteI have gotten my life back again thanks to Dr. Joe Perin. Due to a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease and two whiplash accidents, I had a decade plus of chronic pain and migraines. I was a very physically active person and quite full of energy before. The chronic pain affected every aspect of my life.

Neurologists, pain specialists, multiple chiropractors, physical therapists, orthopedic physicians, MRI’s, x-rays, surgical procedures, injections, medication….and that’s not everything,….I fixed it all! Finally my losing streak broke!

Angela Scharrelman, my massage therapist, recommended Dr. Perin, who specialized in the neck. I was willing to leap again to a new doctor in hopes to feel better. I was immediately impressed by Dr. Perin as he took a careful history, x-rays, and meticulous measurements.

Now 1 ½ years later, I am a new person physically. My pain is almost always a “0” now! I am hiking, cycling, going to yoga, and skiing happily again! I work pain free at my job as a registered nurse!
I highly recommend Dr. Perin and have referred many friends and my own grown kids to him!”

– Barb Frey, Ridgefield, WA, 12/03/2015

Back pain

quoteI had been a NUCCA patient for over 3 years, the last year with Dr. Perin. The thing that is special about Dr. Perin is that he continues to educate himself. He didn’t just get his degree, start his practice, and call it good. He strives to stay educated with any new practices or techniques and studies under two board certified NUCCA doctors twice a year. He is a very personable doctor who truly cares about his patients. Unfortunately, I moved away from Washington about a year and a half ago and I am again experiencing some back pain and I so would like to clone Dr. Perin and move him into my area! For anyone searching for an alternative to surgeries or pills to resolve back pain, give Balanced Living a try. You won’t be sorry!”

Nagging neck pain

quoteI can’t decide which I’m happier about – being able to run close to a marathon distance; or being able to work at my desk all day without nagging neck pain!

I originally heard about the upper cervical technique from my mother who experienced incredible healing from NUCCA for her crushed ankle. Dr. Perin has now made a world of difference in my life. After years of limited activity due to a knee injury, and then a car accident that left me with whiplash, my body was not only suffering, but the assorted imbalances were resulting in secondary pain and problems. My hip was out of place regularly; my neck, arm and shoulder ached; my knees would hurt just from hiking; and more. Regular chiropractic methods failed to fix things. Other alternative therapies, while they helped to some degree, were not fully effective; or would only help temporarily. Until I found Dr. Perin!

I am amazed at what is continuing to happen as my body heals – it’s almost too good to be true! And all from NUCCA’s subtle, gentle adjustments. Thank you Dr. Perin!”

Extreme hip pain

quoteNovember, 2015: I have been coming to see Dr. Perin since September, 2013. Issue 1: In May of 2011 I had arthroscopic surgery on my left ankle which solved my initial problem but left me with swelling and off and on soreness to my ankle which I assumed was just the normal recovery aches and pains and eventually it will get better. It didn’t. Issue 2: For about 9-12 months prior to coming to Dr. Perin’s, I was not able to sleep on my left side due to extreme hip pain.

My sister-in-law introduced me to Dr. Perin and after a month of adjustments (might even have been 2 weeks) I noticed a big difference and continued the treatment plan Dr. Perin set up for me. For two years now, my hip pain is GONE and my ankle swelling and soreness has diminished. Since the beginning, I have never missed one appointment and I will continue on the maintenance regimen that Dr. Perin has for me. Maintenance has been the key to my continued health. I highly recommend Dr. Perin to all my family, friends and work associates.

Thank you Dr. Perin!”

Nerve pain

quoteWhen I came into Balanced Living, I had been experiencing severe right neck pain for months, with no relief from conventional medicine. The first visit with Dr. Perin gave me relief from the nerve pain radiating down my arm and back. I am now pain free and have my life back. I cannot recommend Dr. Perin enough. He is knowledgeable, kind, and always takes the time to listen. I will keep coming back for years.”

Painful trigeminal nerve

quoteFrom a referral by an acupuncturist concerning my limp and one leg shorter than the other, I came to Dr. Perin with some skepticism. I am now a believer. My leg has lengthened, my limp improved and a painful trigeminal nerve pinch in my jaw is nearly gone. I’ve also experienced other changes that were surprises, such as a chronic neck pain gone, GERD symptoms improved, upper back pain considerably lessened. All of this with amazing gentle adjustments. Dr. Perin’s professionalism and knowledge as well as exceptional communication skills make a loyal returning fan of NUCCA and Dr. Perin.”

Neck pain and headaches

quoteI came to Balanced Living Chiropractic after years of neck pain, brain fog, allergies and headaches just to name a few. I feel amazing after just a few adjustments over a couple of months, not to mention I have more energy, better digestion and a happier outlook on life! Dr. Perin is very kind, as is Joan at the front desk! I’m so happy I have referred my husband and mom. I highly recommend Balanced Living!”

Neck and shoulder pain

quoteI was having a lot of terrible neck and shoulder pain and I wanted to see a chiropractor. My friend told me about Dr. Perin and how she was so much better after seeing him. I liked that he did x-rays and read them himself. I listened to him explain the treatments and how the human body worked after the treatments.

After two treatments I was so much better. I do not have pain anymore and it is unbelievable! I will recommend him to anyone.

The atmosphere of the clinic is so nice and Joan, who is the receptionist, is so pleasant.”

Shoulder pain

quoteI cannot recommend Dr. Joe Perin highly enough. He is an active listener, extremely personable, easy to talk to, and is very committed to making you feel well and functional again.

I have, for the last 20 years, been to my fair share of professionals in western, eastern, and homeopathic circles because of a myriad of health issues. I have been able to take something from most of these different circles to find my way to better health.

One nagging issue I could not seem to find a resolution for, however, was the pain/soreness I had in my right shoulder ever since injuring that area in 1989. Physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and “regular” chiropractors did not help alleviate my discomfort for long and I am not one to take daily medication to just mask the real, underlying problem. Everything I tried ended up being just temporary fixes and relief never lasted. Feeling discomfort on my right side had become my daily norm and it was something with which I had mostly learned to live.

Fast forward to my acupuncturist recommending Dr. Perin to me last fall. Believe me when I say I am a very skeptical 50-plus year old individual. I thought the whole concept of this NUCCA stuff was highly suspect and how in the world could such seemingly slight pressure on the neck and behind the ear do anything at all? Where was all the bone crunching, cracking, and manipulating for heaven’s sake?
After just a few adjustments , though, I did feel a difference, but I was concerned that, like everything else I had tried, this too would not be a permanent fix.

I am very happy to report that I have been so pleased and impressed with the results! Normal is my normal now. I do not feel the daily soreness or discomfort I had lived with for 23 years.

So again, I cannot recommend Dr. Perin highly enough. From one who had no success with regular chiropractors and many other forms of treatment I am so glad I gave Dr. Perin and NUCCA a try. I certainly had nothing to lose and I ended up gaining a much better normal.”

Great balance

quoteGreat Dr and even better practice. Go see Dr Joe Perin. He can not only get you adjusted but help you and your family find a great balance in your daily life. Highly recommend.”

Atlas adjustment

quoteDr. Perin and staff are very professional, and show a genuine concern for their patients. He actually did research on the energy drink I was taking and told me that the artificial sweeteners may be triggering my migraines, plus he is the only chiropractor I know of in the area that puts the primary emphasis of an adjustment on the atlas, which is the key to proper adjustment. Keep up the good work Doc!”
