What people are saying about RISE on Yelp…

Fantastic service, amazing results. I’ve been to quite a few chiropractors over the years, and have always been relatively happy. However, Dr. Beall sets a new bar for treatment. Firm and direct, nothing lasts as long as his adjustments and I’m pain free, energetic, and active. After a nasty car accident, John expedited schedules to get me seen immediately, helped adjust me, and then selflessly coached me through how the injury process works and what to watch out for. I always feel like I’m visiting a friend when I go to Rise. Thanks.

Rise, a long overdue 6 month review. I was introduce to Rise through John Beal’s chiropractic practice. An ergonomist at work recommended John as the go to chiropractor to fix a plantar fasciitis I’d been lugging for a year.
In 3 months Dr Beal fixed it!
Yes people, plantar fasciitis can be fixed, and John Beal is your man! Dr John then suggested a bit of physical therapy to strengthen and build some muscle where they were needed. That’s where he handed me over to Derek. Yeah, the great thing about Rise, it’s all in one place, and… Read more “Antony B.”

I am happy to report whatever he did to me has me 100% healed! —
I was referred to work with Dr. John Beall by my dear friend Gabi Cascio after exhausting all other possibilities in search of healing a scary AF pinched nerve situation that was not only causing my thumb to go numb, but also creating excruciating pain like I have NEVER FELT BEFORE… John estimated it would take about 4 sessions to ‘fix me’, and BAMMM was HE ON THE MONEY!!! —
‘Confident, funny, grounded, knowledgeable, & skilled healer’ are just a few words that… Read more “M B.”

I’ve had six sessions so far with John Beale and already I am feeling noticeable improvements. A twisted ankle led to whole-leg stress that was preventing me from running. After these sessions I am back at about 90% and had a pain-free run this week. I’m stoked! Rise has a great vibe and John is a fantastic physical therapist, super in tune to the body and not one to spare his clients the necessary intensive treatment to get to true healing. Thank you, John!
