Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "29 months ago I was in a head on collision at 70 mph on K10. I had to be estracted from the vehicle by multiple cuts through the framing of the vehicle by the Lawrence and Wakarusa Fire Departments. I was in intensive care for 4 days and a regular room for 4 days. i saw multiple doctors, osteopaths, and surgeons, none of which helped in anyway. I spent 3 months 3-4 times a week coming to Dr. Risley and it was truely the only thing that helped and saved me."

  • "I came to Dr. Risley with on and off shoulder and rib pain that made the things I loved to do - run and boat - difficult and painful. His combination of chiropractic care and acupuncture really helped. Now I am mostly pain free and feel so much better! My runs are longer and I'm out on my boat every chance I get. Dr. Risley and his staff are great. Thank You!"
