Patient Testimonials

Joseph Camillo


Joseph Camillo was involved in an ATV accident in June 2017. The accident left Joseph with a fractured tibia that needed to be operated on and he also sustained two fractured vertebra in his low back. After having the surgery on his tibia Joseph had to go through physical therapy to learn how to walk again. Even after physical therapy, Joseph dealt with severe low back pain and exhaustion. After Joseph’s care here at Harcourt Chiropractic, he feels more energized and is left with positive feelings! Joseph is very pleased with Dr. Harcourt’s care and plans to continue with maintenance care.

David Dietz


David dealt with low back pain for about 25 years before coming to Dr. Gary Harcourt. For years, his friends and family suggested he see a chiropractor but he never did because he thought he would get “twisted like a pretzel,” ending up in even more pain. David always had back pain, although he previously tried rehab because he was fearful his lifelong pain would lead to surgery. Within the first week of treatment with Dr. Gary he was already noticing improvements and after five months David achieved a 95% improvement! David suggests to anyone that has back pain to come see Dr. Gary. You won’t leave Harcourt in worse shape and you won’t get twisted like a pretzel!

Kaitlyn Stern


Kaitlyn is originally from New York, but attends York College of Pennsylvania and she was looking for a local chiropractor for her neck and back pain. Being a college student, Kaitlyn found it very difficult to sit in a chair for many hours without experiencing pain, which made it difficult to focus on her schoolwork. Kaitlyn’s improvement from Dr. Gary’s treatment has made it much easier to focus on her schoolwork without pain. She says, “Chiropractic is the way to go!”

Renee Mapstone


Renee is a nurse and a fitness instructor who recently came to Dr. Gary for low back pain, which she dealt with for almost a year. At first, she thought the problem was her—maybe she was lifting too much or exercising too much. However, the pain continued to wake her up at night and nothing she was doing helped. She didn’t understand why she was having the pain and became scared that she wouldn’t be able to continue doing the athletic activities that are her passion. Through a series of planned treatments, Dr. Gary re-aligned her back and hips and relaxed the surrounding muscles. Renee can now do all the things she loves again—pain free! She is confident that through preventative care, she saved herself from surgery. Renee highly recommends Dr. Gary’s care because really cares and listens to his patients.

Roxanne Donnan


Roxanne had issues with her hip that caused numbness down her leg. She dealt with these symptoms progressively getting worse for six months before coming to Harcourt Chiropractic Office. Roxanne realized that her symptoms were not going to fix themselves. Simply getting in and out of the car was a challenge and the numbness made it difficult to sleep. Roxanne is now at 100% improvement! She was very impressed with her success and will now be more preventative in her care. She appreciated how friendly the staff was and how easy Dr. Gary was to understand. “If you need a chiropractor, this is the place to come!”

Ellen Nesbitt

Low back pain

Before Ellen came into the office, she had been dealing with back pain from a work injury for three years. At the time of the injury, she did receive some chiropractic treatment that helped some. Ellen just assumed that she would have to deal with low back pain indefinitely. After receiving care here, Ellen’s back is 85% improved! She is better able to spend time with her family, play with kids, and keep up with a more active lifestyle. She is even able to sleep more soundly. Chiropractic care has helped Ellen’s body work the best that it can and it can do the same for you!

Awilda Burgos

Before she came to the office she had seen other doctors but she wasn't getting relief. She was injured at home. She walked in dragging her feet when she came into the office and walked out walking straight. She can now lift with no pain. Maintenance care has been very helpful.

Stephanie Schuessler

Stephanie had a lot of back pain for years. It was difficult to do activities without pain. She was always in some kind of pain. Never considered chiropractic but gave it a try. Feels good after every session. Has seen good changes over time! Posture is better, inspired her to make other healthier changes in her life. Give it a try!

Matthew Cramer

Matt had right leg pain and low back tightness. He was skeptical of going to a chiropractor but wanted to avoid taking medication so he decided to give it a try. All his pain went away and he feels good! He comes in monthly to keep himself feeling great. He suggests if you have any kind of pain to go to Harcourt Chiropractic Office and let Dr. Gary Harcourt evaluate your situation to see if chiropractic is a solution for you.

Josh Zech

Josh had constant back pain and stiffness in his low back. He was restricted in ways that prevented him from enjoying the things he loved to do such as golfing, other sports and simply picking things up. He had previous back surgery which helped yet didn't give him the motion and relief he was looking for. He saw medical doctors who prescribed medicine yet it really didn't help. He now has very little pain and pretty much back to normal. He says it's really worth giving it a shot.

Lisa Steadman

Lisa was having difficulty walking, functioning, sleeping, couldn't run, was difficult to sit or stand. Her pain in the shoulder was a 9 - 10 and the low back a 10 + on a scale of 0 - 10. Now she can live again without pain. If she ever has problems in the future she knows where to come for help. She was pleasantly surprised with the treatments. She'd recommend Harcourt Chiropractic Office to any of her patients, friends or family members dealing with pain.
