"[I have] mental clarity! Also, I believe that my perfect thyroid function post removal of the left half of my thyroid is due to the amazing alignment of my spine, especially my cervical spine (neck). This allowed my body to heal at its greatest potential. I feel Dr. Ronco is very talented and gifted at what he does. He is thorough and goes the extra mile for his patients. He truly cares and has greatly helped me. [I have learned] the importance of wellness... not to wait until the body malfunctions to fix it, but to use chiropractic care for prevention!"

-Lisa L., Intensive Care Nurse, Patient of Dr. Ronco

How I felt BEFORE I started seeing Dr. Ronco:

"[I had] chronic ncek pain and bilateral arm numbness."

..... and AFTER I started seeing Dr. Ronco regularly:

"In 5 short months, Dr. Ronco healed my chronic neck pain and restored feeling and circulation to my arms and hands. Also, I was able to cancel ACDF (neck) surgery for which I was approved and ready to be scheduled. Within the first week of Dr. Ronco's treatments, my energy level increased noticeably... In the last few months, not only have my symptoms resolved; I have resumed an active lifestyle playing sports, my allergies are gone and my memory has improved. Dr. Ronco is passionate about healing others! He understands chronic pain first hand so he instantly relates to his patients. He listens well and explains thoroughly with relevant analogies. His practice integrates the whole family with an emphasis on holistic healing for each patient. Dr. Ronco's traditional use of spinal adjustments, combined with his insightful knowledge and experience, are unmatched!"

- Dawn H., Patient of Dr. Ronco

How I felt BEFORE I started seeing Dr. Ronco:

"I had lower back, shoulders and nech problems and suffered with chronic headaches for 30 years. I had to take a daily medication and couldn't sleep on my back."

..... and AFTER I started seeing Dr. Ronco regularly:

"I don't have any more headaches and I'm off the medication (which took a month to get off the medications due to withdrawl). My headaches subsided after only three visits and I'm now able to sleep on my side -- which its been 20 years since I've been able to do that."

- Robin B., Patient of Dr. Ronco

How I felt BEFORE I started seeing Dr. Ronco:

"I suffered from headaches from an old sports injury and high blood pressure."

..... and AFTER I started seeing Dr. Ronco regularly:

"My headaches disappeared and I regained full function in my injured arm and wrist. It is truly remarkable that with continued health-maintaining treatments over several months, I have regained a healthy weight and my blood pressure has stabilized. My improved health has given me greater vitality, a perfect attendance record at work this year and the energy to maintain a busy work and athletic schedule. Thank you, Dr. Ronco."

KST (Koren Specific Technique) Testimonials

You might be asking... what is KST and how does it work!?

If a body part is out of alignment, even slightly, the body will give 'binary neurological feedback' to the practitioner. Dr. Ronco can place his hands on the base of your skull, (this is the Occipital Bone). When the body part is challenged, i.e. moved ever so slightly if there is a problem the occipital bone will drop slightly to the left. This is known as the Occipital Drop, (OD). The body part is then adjusted using the Arthrostim. This instrument very gently corrects the misalignment. It is so gentle that children and babies can be adjusted this way with no trauma or upset.

Here's what Dr. Ronco's patients have to say about their experiences with KST at Torrey Hills Chiropractic!

"I was having problems with being really dizzy when sitting up from lying down. After Dr. Ronco used the KST technique on me, I didn't have any more dizziness." - Perry C.. Patient of Dr. Ronco

"I can breathe. I am able to focus. I am able to walk without pain. I can sleep comfortably throughout the night." - Christianne C., Patient of Dr. Ronco

"The third time I had KST, I cried briefly in a good way." - Jordy T., Patient of Dr. Ronco

"I love how after KST, I have moments of enlightenment where my body feels whole, at rest and.... comfy again." - Natalie C., Patient of Dr. Ronco
