  • My experience with Dr. Kevin Wilkins was life changing! No more neck pain!

    -Brian C.
  • After two operations, I had severe pain extending up to my neck and down my arm. I also was not able to look upward toward the ceiling without pain. After some improvement from Dr. Mahoney’s manipulations, it was determined that scar tissue might be the cause. After four sessions of deep tissue massage, I walked away with no pain, no numbness and a return to normal life after 2 ½ years of pain!

    -Robert P.
  • I came in with back pain and was unable to breathe. Everybody is great and Dr. Wilkins KNOWS what he’s doing! I feel incredibly different after my visits.

    -Sarah T.
  • I was experiencing dizzy spells, headaches and eye twitching for 6 months. After 12 sessions (6 weeks) of acupuncture with Dr. Lisette Miller of First State Health & Wellness-Newark, my eye has stopped twitching, my headaches are less frequent and the dizziness has decreased!

    -K. Schmidt
  • I was having headaches that required pain reliever multiple times a day, every day. I saw an allergist and tried eliminating certain foods, prior to finally seeing a neurologist who suggested I see a chiropractor. Dr. John Mahoney is wonderful! Not only has he kept the headaches at bay but if something else is out of whack he can always resolve the issue!

    -Amy S.
  • I came to First State Health & Wellness immediately following a neck and back injury. My pain is reduced and my sleep and mobility have improved. It’s so great to be feeling better. Dr. Stacy Cohen & his team made all the difference!

    -Kim D.
  • Definitely felt better after my adjustment. Acute pain was relieved, chronic pain was less. Moving in the right direction!

    -Rozelle C.
  • I was experiencing severe lower back pain and had tried nerve-block injections prior to coming to First State. After seeing Dr. Kevin Wilkins for adjustments and using the MedX for rehabilitation, I’ve had complete relief of nerve pain, a stronger back and better sleep!

    -Darin N.
