Four weeks ago I came to your clinic with a nagging pain in my right hip and ,what felt like, a pulled muscle under my left arm. The pain was tolerable but certainly uncomfortable. After a quick tour of your clinic and a detailed exam of my back, hips and shoulders you were able to diagnose the most likely cause of my pain and then told me the types of adjustments you would perform to relieve the immediate pain. Then you took x-rays to validate your findings.

Within two days of the first adjustments, I was able to get back into my routine of walking the 2 miles around Lake Arlington pain free. I have since had two more adjustments and some training on the proper use of an exercise ball to strengthen my back and joints.

Thanks Doc for all you have done to keep me going into attics and crawlspaces as well as making it possible to stay on my feet for several hours without experiencing a nagging pain.

I'm a patient of Dr. Perns and would like to share my success story...During my treatments with Dr. Perns, I have experienced less pain, less dizziness, and no stiffness in my neck. I visited a well-known neurologist and he explained my only options were either surgery or living with pain for the rest of my life. Naturally, neither option was appealing.

I sought a second opinion from a chiropractor. After my first visit to Dr. Perns, his professionalism, expertise and staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. I knew right away I was on my way to recovery. Dr. Perns stated it's not normal to live with dizziness and pain. Dr. Perns assured me that there are alternatives to surgery.

After seeing Dr. Perns and the massage therapist for several months now, I have experienced life-changing results. I can move my neck more freely and workout without feeling strain or tension in my neck.

I want to thank Dr. Perns and his staff for all their support. Their specialized expertise has allowed me to live a more free and comfortable life.

Dr. Perns has proven himself to me in a client/Dr. relationship to be knowledgeable, friendly, and effective as a provider of chiropractic services. While troubled with severe joint misfunction in 2011, I received relief and information that benefited me greatly while I prepared for total surgical joint replacement. I will not hesitate to return to Dr. Perns office for treatment as the need arises in the future.

Dr. Perns is one of the most caring individuals I have met and this compassion translates into great patient care. All of my NW suburb referrals go to him.


For the first time in over 3 years I am sleeping through the night and actually sleeping. I have been experiencing severe back and neck pain for a long time. I am just absolutely thrilled with my progress and the care I am receiving from Dr Perns. The pain I feel consistently in my back and neck has prevented me from doing all of the things I love. I really thought that I would not have the ability to resume my active lifestyle, like playing softball, weight training, kickboxing, yoga, walking, or running My body hasn’t felt this “put together” in a very long time, all of the pieces finally fit!!!

I was in a car accident several years ago and I never considered whip lash, but after Dr Perns took an x-ray of my neck, he was right. I never mentioned it. It proved to me that he really paid attention to the pain and me. He takes the time to listen and always has documentation and visuals to share, to ensure that you understand the reason for your pain. His website is so informative as well and provides exercises and helpful hints for preventative maintenance. Dr Perns is so passionate about helping people feel their best. I always feel as though I am a friend when I visit his office.

More recently my son, who plays hockey suffered from a concussion. Dr Perns always takes an educational approach and shares his knowledge when treating you, I immediately thought to bring my son to him within the first few days of the injury. Without looking at xrays or scans he was able to treat my son and his headache went away by the time we got back in the car! I trust Dr Perns and I knew he could help my son naturally without the having to take any medication. That was very important to us.

The office staff makes you feel like you are family and so welcome! The office is so clean and modern. You won't be bored or feel like your time is being wasted while waiting to be seen, there is a monitor that provides a slide show of questions and answers on all topics of the human body. I always feel that I learn something new after each visit. It's very refreshing to find a doctor that truly cares for his patients and shows it! I'll be recommending him to all of my family and friends. Dr Perns is a doctor you can trust and feel comfortable with. If you ever feel as though your body is not responding as it should or used to, stop guessing and browse the web, schedule an appointment to see Dr Perns, he can answer all of your questions.

Thank you!

I started seeing Dr. Perns at least 10 years ago. I had chronic back problems and the ony thing that gave me relief was chiropractic care. Dr. Perns is a great chiropractor but more importantly a wonderful person who cares deeply for his profession and his patients. He convinced me that preventative chiropractic care is much better than coming in when you are in pain. I trusted him and he didn't let me down! I go once a month whether I am in pain or not and guess what? I am never in pain unless I do something stupid. I have recommended Dr. Perns to many people and all love him. He's a great chiropractor but a great friend too!
