Dr. Payne and staff are excellent.

Appointment On Time

I appreciate that you value my time and that my appointment was on time! -Melinda K.

Very Positive Impact

I have found everyone at Payne Chiropractic to be very friendly and professional. Dr. Jake is always willing to answer questions in a clear and honest manner. I started going to the center as part of my overall “get back to good health and fitness” effort in conjunction with my retirement.. I believe the sessions have had a very positive impact on how I feel, my overall sense of well being. I have also been able to minimize or get rid of some chronic physical pains which I had just put up with for years. Also, I had my first, and then several more, therapeutic massages at the wellness center with Erin. It is simply too hard to explain how good your body feels after the massage. Erin is also very effective in targeting any problem areas (shoulders, neck, etc.), which works very well in conjunction with the chiropractic sessions. I strongly recommend people look into chiropractic care as part of their rountine health practices…and I recommend you go to Payne Chiropractic to get this care…and then try a therapeutic massage ! -Steven K.


I am so much better, I can’t thank you guys enough for getting me in on a minutes notice! All of you are awesome and it was so good seeing everyone! I took that trip and was able to do so because of you Dr. Payne! I am almost back to normal and I will be seeing you guys as soon as I can fit it in! I cant thank you enough! -Kim S.

Lower Back

Symptoms prior to treatment at Payne Chiropractic Wellness Center: Constant lower back pain.

“I pulled my lower back Easter weekend. I could not sit for very long. Very tight after waking and I could not bend over. There was a noticeable difference right after I started chiropractic care. It was gradual but I feel strong again. I have never had an injury like this before so I was worried about the future. I really do feel strong again. It makes me feel like I’ll be able to do physical activities without icing my back after. Thank you Dr. Zwirble and staff!”

The Best

Symptoms prior to treatment at Payne Chiropractic Wellness Center: Headaches, neck pain, knee problems, and ringing in the ears.

“Rarely do I find something I feel so strongly about that I would write a testimonial, but this is one of those rare occasions. Two years ago my daughter told me about Dr. Payne and how good he is. I have gone to chiropractors for 20 plus years and believe in them whole-heartedly. When she bragged about him and suggested that I visit him I thought “okay, sure…we will see.”

I have been to lots of chiropractors (all with different methods and techniques). I’ve been laid on tables and had machines rolled up and down my back.I’ve also been to chiropractors that use the hands on method, which has been the best. By FAR, Dr. Payne and the Gonstead method are the best! I feel better now than I ever have before.

I am so serious about Dr. Payne that I drive from the West side of Mobile, AL to Destin, FL to be adjusted. That’s 127 miles! My back, neck, knees, and the ringing in my ears are so much better now!

So, thank you Dr. Payne for being so good at what you do! The office staff is great too! ALL of them are so friendly and help feel and care about each patient. I highly recommend Dr. Payne to anyone!

Pain Free

Before I started seeing Dr. Payne I was unable to walk without pain I had a fall and it caused my spine to be out of alignment. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the worst I classified my pain as a 10. My left leg was affected it was causing me to limp and I had to start using a cane. I was unable to walk without pain.

Due to Dr. Payne’s professional skill and continued encouragement I gradually went from unbearable pain, to PAIN FREE, SO WONDERFUL!. My life is back to normal again. I’m Pain free and walking with no cane. Now I visit Dr. Payne frequently to prevent any further problems and to stay aligned.

Has Made A Difference

Symptoms prior to treatment at Payne Chiropractic Wellness Center: Stabbing pains in shoulder blades, groin, pain in wrist and headaches.

“My child had major pain in groin. The medical remedy? Tylenol ever couple hours. We visited the office as a family after several adjustments pain subsided for all.

Healthier More Productive Life

Before I started seeing Dr. Payne I was Involved in a Auto Accident and my neck got thrown against the headrest. I couldn’t sleep and i had excruciating pain in my neck and shoulders.

Soon after my treatments with Dr. Payne and his Massage therapist I began feeling much better, now I am pain free nearly all if the time! I am getting tremendous relief from my injury and in addition I have a lot more energy. I feel better and I have also been able to decrease or eliminate many of my asthma medications. For five years I have tried to control my asthma and I got no relief. It is a miracle that I can breathe with minimal asthma problems now. Dr. Payne is going to start working on my knees and I am looking forward to more progress in my general health and well being. I will be a regular patient that is mandatory for me. Chiropractic is giving me hope for a healthier more productive life. I THANK GOD FOR DR. PAYNE!!

Range Of Motion Has Improved

Before I started seeing Dr. Payne I had severe sciatica. I had constant pain and could not sleep due to my misalignment. I have always been active and the sciatic nerve under my left glute was keeping me from the activities that I enjoyed.

Over several months of treatment with Dr. Payne I was able to sleep again and the pain DISAPPEARED! I am able to be active again with tennis, golf, and biking. I experience NO PAIN with my sciatic nerve now. My range of motion has also improved dramatically. I will continue chiropractic care as a lifetime maintenance of overall health.

No Pain

Before seeing Dr. Payne I developed a severe pain on the right side of my neck, shoulder, and shoulder blade. Before seeing Dr. Payne the medical Doctor had given me a cortisone shot and therapy in my shoulders, it did not help, the pain was as severe as having kidney stones.

After my third visit to Dr. Payne I had NO PAIN by that evening. My right arm is showing a lot of improvement, I am able to raise it now.

A Whole Lot Better

Before I started seeing Dr. Payne I was having headaches very often, I was also having leg pain and it was making it very hard to walk. I was having to take pain pills every morning before i could stand. My shoulders and neck were in a lot of pain also.

After treatment with Dr. Payne,I have no more headaches, and no more pain in my legs. I AM NOT TAKING ANY PAIN PILLS NOW. The pain in my neck and shoulders is also a whole lot better.

Love It

Before seeing Dr. Payne I had extremely severe pain in my hip area and severe acid reflux.

After 2 visits to Dr. Payne my pain began to diminish! I am a retired tennis pro that still loves to play, but my hip was to severe for me to play. My pain is getting a lot better and I plan to play tennis this week. I have had chronic acid reflux for 3 years now. Dr. Payne discovered a problem in my thoracic area, as soon as treatment began my reflux decreased. No more expensive medication just after a few treatments. NO MEDS, NO REFLUX, I LOVE IT!

More Balanced

I had a lot of neck, low back, and right hip pain. I also had right sciatica that ran into the back of my right leg. It was so bad that I fell and broke my toe and busted my right eye. I couldn’t even turn my head, if I wanted to look at something I would have to turn my whole body. Everything in my body was so stiff; I had a very hard time getting out of bed. I have lived with this pain for 12 years. I did pain epidurals for three years.

Dr. Payne has turned my life around. Since my adjustments I’m not as clumsy and I can walk without pain. Now I can get down on one knee without pain or without having to pull myself up on something. I can also breathe better and tie my shoes without getting winded. I had no idea that chiropractic could help me as much as it has. I can turn my head now, my balance is a lot better, and I can drive a lot easier than I could before. I feel like a new man.

This Is Part Of My Health Maintenance

Before seeing Dr. Payne I had a lot of pain in my right leg, I also had a lot of stiffness and soreness in both my neck and lower back. Whenever I had to drive very far I would be in a lot of pain.

After treatment with Dr. Payne I can drive without having any pain. I am no longer limited with the things I can do. I have complete range of motion of everything and my posture is better. I am blessed, and plan to keep seeing Dr. Payne the rest of my life. This is part of my health maintenance.

TMJ Gone

Before receiving care from Dr. Payne, I had back pain, neck pain, jaw pain, shoulder pain, and I was functioning low mentally. I had two bad car accidents leaving me with TMJ and ringing in my ears. I was very stressed when I arrived in Florida for vacation.

After being in the care of Dr. Payne most of my pain has diminished. My TMJ issues are almost gone. The most improvement was in my hearing in my left ear. I can now hear all tones, it seems normal again. My stress level is back to a more normal function; so I can deal with the stress of being a mother to a special needs child, a care giver to my elderly mother, and finding balance in my life. We found Dr. Payne in the phone book, God led us to him. All glory to god for the miracles we have experienced through Dr. Payne’s healing touch. Our 1 month planned vacation turned into 7 weeks of Dr. Payne’s wonderful treatment.

Before seeing Dr. Payne I was in and out of the hospital the last six months, they ran numerous test and couldn’t find anything but high blood pressure. I had neck pain, total back pain, I was unable to sleep, mental confusion, and I had hip and foot pain.

Dr. Payne had addressed all of my back, neck, hip, and foot pain; they are all very much improved. I am now able to sleep better, I have more energy, and less pain throughout my entire body. I am thinking clearer than I have in the past five years. After all of the Dr’s I have seen I the past five years I was about to give up on Dr’s. I think god for finally finding Dr. Payne, who has given me confidence that there are Dr’s who can help. I want to thank you and your staff Dr. Payne for all of your compassion and help, God Bless. I know I still need treatment, and I am looking forward to coming back and receiving more treatment from you.

So Glad

I had been suffering from severe pain from a fall that I had on a ceramic tile floor. I was unable to sit, stand, and I could barely walk. I was in a terrible condition.

The care that I received from Dr. Payne was thorough and amazing! I was giving the information that I needed to know. No step to healing was left unanswered. My choice was to follow the intensive care method of Gonstead Chiropractic care. Today I am glad I followed the recommendations of Dr. Payne. Now I am in better health than I was before the fall.
