    "I never know how vital chiropractic care would be to my active musical career until i made the first appointment--I was surprised! I also didn't realize that practicing , rehearsing and performing on the bassoon for hours on end each day can be an entirely different stress on the body not unlike playing a sport. I learned what was happening to my entire body--not just my spine and neck--and Dr. Dieter not only reversed the damage but also targeted the cause of the problem. Now, I have the knowledge as well as the stretches to make sure I'm still giving the gift of music for many years to come. I really did take control of my health and thanks to you Dr. Dieter, you really did improve my quality of life!"

    "The accident appears now in my minds-eye in slow motion. The oncoming car failed to stay in it's lane and the drunken driver slammed into my rear quarter panel although I attempted to swerve out of his way. Within days Lawrence started a gentle traction regimen followed by chiropractic therapy on my neck and back. I believe he prevented the trauma from becoming worse and reversed the damage that had been caused by the accident. His attention and care was crucial to my full recovery and I would recommend Dieter to everyone. Thanks LD for all you do! "

    "i had been only able to take baby steps for two years due to a car accident years ago along with lingering difficulties. dr. dieter was covering for my chiropractor in sacramento, ca where he treated me for those two weeks. After a couple of adjustments to my pelvis and hips and also doing the stretches he showed me and on the third treatment i was so excited to be able to take a normal step. i was showing off to everybody i knew."

    "I came in to Dr. Dieter's office at the age of 26 with chronic strains of several key muscles in my legs. I was missing out on many activities, namely bike riding, soccer, volleyball and surfing. several months into I had shown positive results which i attribute to not only Dr. Dieter's chiropractic care, but also his advice and knowledge regarding human biology and medical science. This past week end i enjoyed playing in a soccer tournament of 4 games in one day and have had over a month without any hip discomfort. Absolutely Remarkable! "

    "cheers! to you, i knew lawrence aka Dr. Dieter back when he had hair on his head and before he became a chiropractor. back when we were working at ITT Cannon Electric in the early 80's. so fast forward to a work injury, a low back pain which did not change much even after many treatments at the physical therapist...... so Lawrence was able to diagnosis my low back pain as a moderate disc injury in my low back and i am so much better after his treatments and can play with my son, do almost anything now. cheers to you l.d."

    I looked at some reviews on Yelp for a good chiropractor. Then I read this one for Dr. Backman which is not too far from my work place. I had some minor back discomfort from training at a gym so I called and made an appointment to see Dr. Dieter. Unfortunately my insurance wouldn't cover the visit as it is out-of-network, but decided to have an adjustment. After two weeks my back is great, I have more flexibility and was given some great tips on how to keep a better posture.
    I'll be coming back again and will also see the massage therapist next door.


    Thanks..

    CHIROPRACTIC TREATMENT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE!


    Dr Dieter was my first ever experience going to a chiropractor. I was nervous because I'd been having neck pain for over a year and various other medical problems. I also had daily headaches. After a few visits the headaches stopped and my tylenol sits lonely in my bathroom cabinet!


    Dr Dieter makes me feel extremely secure, none of the treatment has been painful and I have actually learned a lot about posture, my spine, why chiropractic care works and how to help myself on a daily basis.


    I feel like a new person, now that pain doesn't dominate my life - if you suffer with headaches, back ache or neck pain, you know what I mean. I feel mobile, healthier and so relieved I finally dealt with that pain!

    SEE THIS MAN NOW - AND OFTEN!


    I first met Dr. Dieter after relocating from the Bay Area last year. The move and all the stress that comes with any move had me feeling "low-energy and slightly out of alignment" both physically and mentally. Since I am aware of the benefits of chiropractic care, massage and general stretching and relaxation techniques, I "Googled - Chiropractor San Luis" and began my research.


    It wasn't long before I was drawn into Dr. Dieter's - AKA "Dr. Backman's) website. His site, although a bit "homespun", was full of knowledge and genuine passion for what he does. So, I decided to call him, and I was immediately impressed that he picked up the phone and was willing to consult with me a bit before checking his appointment book! He got me in to see him that same day.


    Dr. Dieter is competent, calm, and kindly. He is goes above and beyond in the sharing of information - all signs of a true healer. He is also AFFORDABLE - offering a coupon on his website!


    I consider Dr. Dieter, part of my team of professionals in the San Luis Obispo area and refer him to everyone I meet who needs a physical, mental or emotional tune-up!
    Call him today, you'll be glad you did!
