I was in severe back pain in Feb '16. I couldn't walk, missed a week of work, and then used a cane for about a month. An emergent care doctor recommended a chiropractor, and my insurance listed HealthFirst Spine & Wellness as the closest office to me. What a blessing! I was able to walk normally after a couple of weeks. Dr. Brad explained my X-rays to me that my spine had a curve most likely from an injury many, many years ago. My latest X-rays (June '17) have shown great improvement, and my spine is getting straighter! Even though I'll be moving to Round Rock soon, I plan on continuing to visit Dr. Brad and Dr. T at HealthFirst Spine & Wellness. They know me. They know my health history. I trust them. Their facility is a comfortable, friendly environment and the staff makes it a point to learn your name. more »

I first went to HealthFirst with numb feeling in my arm about 6 years ago. After analysis and a few weeks of treatments, the numb feeling was completely gone. In the same time frame, I noticed I had much better overall mobility and flexibility. I've continued regular 'tune-ups' ever since.
The doctors and staff are always thorough, considerate, and caring. For example, if on a visit you show up with neck pain, they will examine, try to determine root cause, and treat you right away. You will always feel better when you leave their office than you did when you walked in.
I highly recommend HealthFirst to treat your anything that hurts, and to keep you feeling great the rest of the time.

HealthFirst is a very professional, and friendly clinic. The entire staff is fantastic. I went because of extreme pain from my sciatic nerve in my back and down my leg. After several weeks of treatment and physical therapy my pain started going away. I really appreciate the professionalism of the doctors and their consultations including x-rays to help you monitor your progress. I have continued my treatments due to issues with my spine and feel I have improved greatly. I highly recommend HealthFirst. more »

I came to the the HealthFirst spine and wellness center looking for pain relief because I had tremendous lower back pain, shoulder pain, and some minor neck pain. This pain was inhibiting me to do the things I love such as working out. I had trouble doing any lower body workouts. After an analysis of my spine, they quickly went to work adjusting me. After one week I was able to do some legs and after 3 I was working out just like before I injured myself. Their work there truly does help and I'm so glad I got the help I needed so I can do the things I love to do again. more »

Riding my mountain bike is the second most important source of joy in my life (next to my wife). A few months ago, I started suffering from crippling lower back pain that sent me limping home after only an hour of riding. Upon the recommendation of a few fellow riders, I visited Health First to get checked out.
After a few sessions, I able to ride my bike for longer and longer periods. Not only am I able to ride again pain-free, I am learning to strengthen my body to maintain balance and power.

Living pain-free and I have HealthFirst Spine & Wellness to thank! Prior to visiting HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, I was suffering with headaches and leg pain that I believed to be sciatica. Dr. Brad took the time to really understand my concerns. He patiently explained what was causing my pain and the difference between treating the symptom vs. treating the cause of the symptoms. Well, I am happy to report, under the care of Dr. Brad and Dr. Tony, I am completely pain-free. I am experiencing improved range-of-motion and my energy level has increased. Thanks HealthFirst Spine & Wellness for improving my quality of life. more »

It wasn't long ago that I didn't even want to drive – chest and lower back pain made sitting for anything longer than a few minutes painful.
I googled for chiropractors in the area,
found HealthFirst, and was immediately impressed with how much they cared about my health! They've consistently made me feel cared for and have worked hard to make sure I have everything I need to not just get better, but stay better. They've even given me "chiropractic homework" to make my recovery faster and more effective. I can't recommend them highly enough, because in my year since I gave them a call for the first time, I've felt healthier in every way. more »

Everyone there is very friendly and totally invested in your health and wellness. I have been going there for at least eight years now, and I've seen a remarkable improvement. Not only do I have much less back pain, but I am almost never sick. They not only treat the body, but also the mind and soul to give you the tools you need to live a more healthy, less stressful life. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to not only receive treatment, but to also prevent new problems from arising. more »

I started working at Health First about a month ago. I have worked for multiple chiropractors and I have suffered from neck/upper back pain my entire life. I accepted the pain as a way of life and thought that my neck and upper back were just permanently ruined. Other chiropractors provided instant relief sometimes, but nothing that lasted for very long. After only 8 adjustments, I am consistently pain free - from when I wake up to when I go to bed. I've went my whole life thinking that my back and neck were damaged beyond repair.
Dr. Brad and Dr. Tony are a blessing to my life. Their holistic approach is beyond anything that I've ever seen in a chiropractic office. They found the root of the problem and fixed it at its core. On top of the excellent care, their genuine compassion for every patient makes Health First so special. I feel so lucky to be a part of their corrective care program AND staff!

Several years ago I started seeing Dr. Nicki for neck/shoulder pain. Not only did she help me with that but with regular adjustments to my lower back and hips I was able to rid myself of horrible menstrual cramps which I have suffered with for many years. No more ultrasounds or medication for me.
Two years ago I woke up one morning with major sciatica pain. Could not lift my foot off the ground more than two inches. I came in to see Dr. Tony and was able to walk out of the office in much better shape. Since then I have maintained my weekly adjustments and feel much better and a little taller thanks to HealthFirst.

I came in right after a motorcycle accident instead of going to the hospital. Really just wanted to make sure I didn't have any broken bones. I had some xrays taken and review them shortly after to encounter that I had torn my rotator cuff. Which explained why I was in such pain. We discussed a plan that would allow me to go back to work a function at 100%. With Dr. Tonys help in aligning my body, and the consistant push Melissa gives you to becoming stronger really made my experience with Health First Spine and Wellness that much better. more »

I was searching for wellness ... and found it at HealthFirst Spine & Wellness. This was my first experience with chiropractic treatment. I suffered with migraines, sinus headaches, infections, neck pain, left leg/knee swelling and constant pain on my left side from car accident several years ago. My sleep was minimal due to pain and even then I never truly rested. I was exhausted all the time. When I began my treatment I could not walk 1/2 a block without my knee swollen twice the size and in such excruciating pain. The headaches were common place in my daily life along with the pain. A typical allergy season would present 5+ infections. I had no idea the impact that my spinal alignment would have on my entire overall health and well being. I began in Aug. 2016 with 3 times a week adjustments and core stretching and exercising. In Oct. 2016 I went on vacation to the beach and actually walked several miles a day. I have not had a migraine and my sinus headaches have been few but alleviated with facial/sinus treatment. I am walking, riding bikes, exercising, and have energy again. I am sleeping through the night! I have even lost weight during this process. I continue my stretches and exercise at home along with my once a week now adjustment. I can't believe the dramatic change in my life ... I truly found wellness. And how could I forget ... the doctors and staff are the best. They are caring, kind and compassionate. Thank You HealthFirst Spine & Wellness! more »

Love the feeling after my adjustments. One of the most interesting things about the changes you will observe is a positive change on your behavior, improve memory, digestive system and you will sleep better. Pain went away 100%. In other words with adjustments your whole body is on a perfect balance, I just feel great after and on a so much better mood. All the staff is amazingly proffesional, everytime I visit them I learn something new and I even go home with delicious healthy recipe. Chiropractors are not only for adults, babies and kids all ages come here!! Love this place more »

Dr. Holden is a wonderful person, and an excellent chiropractor. The practice itself is really well run, they explain everything very well, I was completely ignorant about chiropractic treatments and the science in general going into it and Brad did a wonderful job educating me. I will say that there is a bit of pressure to buy into the long term treatment plan, but then again there can really only be limited results with a 1-month schedule (covered by insurance), in order to see real results you need to see them 2 times a week for three or so months. After being adjusted I felt great and my overall spine health improved after all of my treatments. I did only give him 4 stars because after my initial treatment with him I was treated by Tony the rest of my time there, which I had no particular issues with (he is a bit more firm than Brad) but it felt a bit bait-and-switch-ey. I think this is something that I didn't address with Dr. Holden directly because it wasn't a real issue for me, and I am sure that if I had approached him about it he would have switched me back to having him treat me himself but it's something he needs to be aware of going forward, so this is why I'm mentioning it. more »

Great place with super helpful staff. They fixed my back fast and well. I was barely able to walk when I found this place a couple of months ago, and now I feel better than I felt in years, playing sports with my kids every day and no longer worrying about my back. more »

I would absolutely recommend Dr. Brad and Dr. Tony's chiropractic services to anyone looking to live a healthy lifestyle, regardless of age or lifestyle. I had been looking for a new chiropractor since I moved to south Austin and everywhere I had been to made me feel like they were just popping my back without really understanding the issue and then sent me on my way to get to the next patient.
During my first two visits with Dr. Brad, I really felt like he not only tried to understand the immediate issue, but also my life style and all the little details that could have been affecting me that I was not even aware of. This holistic approach to chiropractic care was exactly what I had been looking for and truly believed in. My posture was something I had been conscious of for a while but after my first two visits, he made me understand that it was even more important than I thought and could be the underlying issue for all of the other symptoms I was feeling. I really liked that his focus was to treat the underlying issue which would in turn help with a lot of other symptoms I was feeling.
Fast forward to my re-exam a couple of weeks later, I had my photo taken again to measure my posture and was amazed at the difference that these couple of sessions had done. I now sit with great posture while working at my computer (something that had never happened before) and generally no longer feel like I am always slouching, which had been a serious concern of mine. And just to emphasize, this is only the beginning of the treatment/program. I generally feel much better everyday and have never felt better internally and externally which has even expressed itself in my work.
I really look forward to see what the results will be after another couple of weeks!

Dr. Brad and his team are excellent. Focus on identifying the underlying problem, developing a plan with the patient for long term recovery and maintenance, great education and step by step process, and the appropriate ancillary services (e.g. workout area, rehab, equipment, etc.) to support long term care. Provides the tools to take care of yourself so you don't become slave to coming in for treatment. more »

The staff at HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, their skill, competency, and commitment to your health, is exceptional. My wife and I have committed to their wellness program that stresses a healthy spine, mind, diet, and exercise. Through spine rehabilitation and simple adjustments to diet and exercise, I have lost 15 pounds and we feel rejuvenated. The people are great, and the environment is inviting. We can't thank the staff enough for their care and commitment to our health. more »
