  • "After having shoulder pain that continued to worsen for over a year I made an appointment with Dr Cantu. After several visits I am happy to say that I am 90% better. Most days are pain free and I thought I would never be able to say that. I was in constant pain and was very concerned that this was going to be my new normal. I am beyond happy that my medical doctor recommended Dr Cantu. Walking through his door was the best decision I made. Thank you Dr Cantu and staff."
    Shawna W., Keswick
  • "Extremely competent! I left feeling so much better and it continued with the prescribed exercises! He exceeds my expectations!"
    Donna L., Gordonsville
  • "Dr. Cantu and staff have been so helpful and have put me back on the road to a better life. Thanks is okay but words do not say how much better I am."
    Carloyn A., Howardsville, VA
  • "Dr. Cantu and his staff is excellent. I had a problem with my lower back and after a few visits, I was finally back to normal. Dr. Cantu understood the whole problem and easily pin pointed how to fix it and get everything back to normal. I was in and out very quickly for every visit. He did everything needed and then some. He's great and so is his staff. I will certainly go back when needed and always recommend his name."
    Chris E., Troy, VA
  • "Dr. Cantu is amazing at what he does. He is always easy to talk to and knows immediately what the problem is. Not only did he solve my back issues but also gave me great advice on how to improve my back by using stretching exercises. I recommend him first as a great practitioner and also as a great chiropractor. If you have back pain you owe it to yourself to go by. When you're in pain you can't wait weeks to get help and I've been able to set appointments within a day or two with no problem, which makes a big difference."
    Steven S., Charlottesville, VA
  • "The Chiropractic Office promptly, effectively, and professionally addressed my chiropractic needs. The doctors and staff are courteous and friendly. If I need chiropractic treatment in the future, I will definitely go there again."
    Terry L., Barboursville, VA
  • "Over the past 10 yrs I have also met and appreciated the skills and knowledge of Dr. Cantu who has looked after me and my family as has Dr. Walker. I have referred many of my patients to the practice because I knew that they would be treated extremely well and never be taken advantage of. I still feel the same about them."
    Dr. Ajgaonkar M.D. (Retired), Charlottesville
  • "The doctors and staff are warm and compassionate. Excellent results after only one visit. I will continue to visit them for all of my chiropractic needs and recommend this business highly!"
