Yours in Health,
Dr. Tim Swift
I am so glad I went to Dr Swift. He has helped me considerably. My legs no longer ache all the time after doing so for 25 years. I am able to walk without pain afterwards. His staff is very accommodating and an asset to his practice.
Number One In My Book
I have been suffering from lower back and right leg pain for well over 10 years. I really started to feel like it was just how life was for me. I have been to many other chiropractors over the years, but non of them could show me or explain to me why I had my pain. I actually cried tears of joy when Dr. Swift went over my x-Rays and explained everything. The best part was how confident he was that he could help me. So, here I am after my very intense first 90 days and feeling better than I ever have. Dr. Swift is a life changer for me. But not just for me. He also does amazing work on my three sons. They are 7, 4, and 18 months. Dr. Swift has such a great way with them and they all love going in for their adjustments. What is also great is how amazing the staff are. They will entertain my boys so that I can get my adjustment without them climbing all over me. Overall, this is an amazing practice and it is worth every minute me and the kids are in the car to get there. You see, we live all the way in Yorba Linda. And yes, it is more than worth it when you find the right chiropractor for you and your family. Swift Health Chiropractic is number one in my book.
The doctor was very friendly and well trained. I felt like I was in good hands. The staff is very friendly and helped me with any issues I had. It is like going to visit friends rather then going to the doctors. I feel great now only after a short time of visiting them. Thanks doc Swift!
Before entering Dr. Swift’s office all of my Multiple Sclerosis symptoms were at their worst. I could barley walk. I had pain down my left leg and hip. My neck was stiff and I felt numbness in my hands and on the bottom of my left foot. I was diagnosed with M.S. in 1997. I was taking Avonex, Zoloft, Baclafen, and extra strength Tylenol in abundance. I also took some experimental drugs for two years. I even had sinus surgery to try to prevent infections (they had to peel back my face!) All of my dental work had to be redone in order to remove a major amount of mercury.
In addition, I had two hemorrhoid surgeries. All the treatments were recommended by a Neurologist for M.S. The Neurologist was the first of many doctors I saw for my condition. I also saw a Neuropsycologist who ran tests on me for four consecutive days. I also went to rehabilitation, and saw a variety of surgical specialist. It completely changed my life. I could no longer work. I was on medical disability. I had to move to California for the climate. Being under care at Swift Health Chiropractic, I no longer have any symptoms and I am no longer taking any drugs. Now I am able to exercise without any problems. I am able to ride my bike and able to swim. All of this is due to my care at Dr. Swift office and my life style changes. It no longer hurts to move! I feel strong and balanced in all parts of my body- NO PAIN or RESTRICTIONS. I sleep better ands breathe wonderfully. I have been to Chiropractors since the 70’s, but I have never had results like this! I have more energy and my body feels amazing!

Chronic Low Back Pain
Before entering Swift Health Chiropractic I was experiencing headaches almost daily. I also was dealing with chronic low back pain that was making it impossible to sit for any length of time without pain which has lasted almost 30 years. Finally, I was also getting sinus infections and the flu every winter like clock work. In an attempt to correct these problems I visited several orthopedic surgeons who treated me with muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory medication. I also started to go to physical therapy which helped but I could not bet rid of the problem. All of these problems have kept me from many activities including things as simple as walking. Since I have been getting adjusted by Dr. Swift I have not had a single sinus infection for over 6 months now. Although my results have been gradual the headaches have diminished significantly and my low back has improved to the point where I am able to walk and do stretches on a daily basis.
~Elsa, age 71
Before entering Swift Health Chiropractic my life as a swimming instructor was much more difficult. Over the last four years I have been suffering with daily headaches which I have been taking pain medication and Advil for without ever getting to the root of the cause. I have also had very long menstrual cycles lasting six to eight months in a row and low back pain. I have also had gastric bypass surgery and have been in and out doctors offices all my life because of being sick all the time. Due to these problems and a feeling of being tired all the time I was not able to be consistent with my work or social life schedule. After being adjusted by Dr. Swift I have no more headaches. I have a normal monthly menstrual cycle and I rarely ever get sick. I have completely stopped taking Advil and pain killers. I feel like I have much more energy and that life is now much easier to handle.

Debilitating Pain In My Neck, Shoulders and Back
After an accident on a horse in 1956, 8 car accidents and many years of work I developed a debilitating pain in my neck, shoulders and back. In an attempt to deal with these problems and others I have had three rotator cuff surgeries, one elbow surgery and carpal tunnel surgeries on both my hands. I was very limited in every aspect of my life due to these problems. I could not sit still because of the pain. My life appeared hopeless all because of the pain. I had been going to other chiropractors for 50 years trying to improve the functioning of my body and to decrease the severity of my symptoms with only mild relief. After only a few visits at Swift Health Chiropractic Dr. Swift has done for me more than any other doctor has in all the years I have been going. The pain that I have been experiencing and living with for years is disappearing. This is the best that I have felt in years. My mental attitude has also improved greatly because of the positive changes that have been made.

Cough is Gone
Over the last 6 to 7 months I have had a persistent cough and nasal congestion that has poorly affected my job as a coach and college instructor. I have also gotten strep throat 3 times within the last 3 months. Finally, I have had pain and decreased range of motion in my knee that has made it impossible for me to work out for the last week. Prior to these issues I have not had any respiratory complaints. All of these issues have caused me to be very tired, uncomfortable and not be able to do all of my regular daily activities. Now that I have been getting adjusted by Dr. Swift my cough is Gone. My congestion has been alleviated. I have much more energy and my knee range of motion and pain has become much better. In fact, after one adjustment I was able to go back to my regular work out.
From birth we knew Harrison had a developmental delay. When he walked he would shuffle his feet and move very slow. He could not do the basic things some of us take for granted, such as brush his own teeth or count on his fingers. He had terrible trouble communicating. Harrison also had a short attention span to go with everything else! We further noticed that Harrison had some sensory integration issues that we saw other Doctors for therapy to relieve some of the frustration, but didn’t see much change. Then in November of 2006 our friend Shelley told us about Dr. Swift and the progress he has made with other special needs children. Since coming to see Dr. Swift, Harrison walks quicker and is able to pick up his feet so he doesn’t shuffle. He can brush his teeth, and count up to 5 on his fingers. He communicates at a higher level. Harrison tries to speak and he listens to what you say to him. You can ask him to do simple tasks and watch him follow through. There has been a powerful change in his tolerance of frustration. His attention span has extended considerably. Harrison rapidly made an instant turn for the best after being adjusted by Dr. Swift.
Healthy Baby Boy
Heath was born with a tilted head and did not have the ability to hold his neck straight. Medical doctors could not find a way to help my son. After receiving an adjustment from Dr. Swift, Heath was able to hold his head up straight. His neck is much stronger and he is now a healthy baby boy. Heath age 4 months.
Tingling and Numbness
My life has been severely affected by 3 car accidents that I have been in since 2000. I have developed pain in my left shoulder and in my neck. Tingling and numbness in my fingers and headaches 3-4 times a week. I also have a shoulder that I dislocates about once a month. I saw another chiropractor back in 2000 but all of my symptoms remained. I also went to my medical doctor who prescribed me vicodin for the pain. I was also taking lots of Tylenol. The worst part about these symptoms was I was becoming very irritable with my family because of the pain. I also did not want to do activities that I originally loved. Also work was very difficult at times as well. Since coming to see Dr. Swift there has been a huge difference in the way I feel. My headaches have almost stopped entirely, going from 3-4 a week to only about 1 a month. The numbness from my fingers is gone so work has become much easier. I now have more patience with my family because I am not in pain.

I Can Breathe Without Medicine
Cadyn was 6 months old when he started to have both Asthma and Allergy attacks. He had to go on medication an a respirator for his asthma. His condition effected the whole house. He would wake up for many hours at night taking medication to breathe. Since he started to see Dr. Swift, he has not used a respirator or medicine. It has been over a year.

Now I Can Dance
In 1999 I was diagnosed with spinal degenerative disease by Dr. Mudiyan at Irvine medical Hospital who told me “ You will come back begging me to do the surgery”.
I ran away and started every treatment possible to ease my cervical, mid, and low back pain. It was immobilizing and I started taking more and more pain killers , increasing the dosage of Acetaminophen, Ibuprophen, Naproxen, Hidrocodone, Carisoprodol and sleeping pills.
I have a PhD in Anesthesiology in Argentina. I work here in the USA as a chemist and I am very familiar with the detrimental effects in long term use of those chemicals, but I had to work and survive.
I received three series of epidurals and traction treatment at a spinal medical center which ultimately did not work.
My hobby is dance and Martial arts. I have been doing this for years. The pain made me unable to do these. In addition to this, I had a shoulder injury that completed my misery.
On April 2005 I started treatment with Dr. Tim Swift. With his care I have achieved relief. I have decreased the amount of pain killers, and I am returning to my regular activities. The pain and numbness I had in my right leg is gone, My right arm is moving almost normally. The cervical pain is practically gone. Now I can dance, practice Martial arts, and exercise more, this has resulted in increased endorphins and happiness. We still have to work on the right hand side of my back pain which is localized with no radiation. Dr. Swift rescued me from the knife, scalpel, surgeon, medication and disability for life…
~Thank you my friends!!!!
Sinus Headaches Are Essentially Gone
Before coming to Swift Health Chiropractic, I was suffering for five years with sinus headaches 2-3 times every week. I would take Sudafed or Tylenol for my symptoms. The headache took all my focus away from work and all I could think about was my headache and how much I wanted to leave work and lay down and hope it went away. Since I started to see Dr. Swift my sinus headaches are essentially gone. Recently I only get one mild headache every 3-4 month instead of the usual 2-3 times a week. Now I can focus on my work and not worry about my head.

Migraine Headaches, Low Energy, Menstrual Cramping
My life before coming to Swift Health Chiropractic was filled with Migraine Headaches, Low Energy, Menstrual Cramping that went down my legs, Bowel Irregularity and Low Back Pain. I have been living with these problems for over twenty years as they began in my teens with the onset of hormonal changes. I also believe that some of these problems are related to an injury I received 10 years ago when I was hit by a stolen vehicle. All of these issues made it very difficult to keep up with my kids and I felt as if I was getting old to fast. Since being adjusted by Dr. Swift my life has changed dramatically. My Migraine Headaches are gone. My Menstrual Cramping is Nonexistent. Even my bowels have become more regular. I also have high enough energy now to keep up with my kids and a consistent workout schedule.
~Denise, age 34
Prior to seeing Dr. Swift for chiropractic care I was dealing with problems in my work life as a teacher and store clerk and in my home life. Difficulty Breathing With Sudden Gasping For Air, Waking Up At Night, Low Back Pain, Cramping In My Legs and Feet and Plantar Fascitis were making my life very difficult. I have been dealing with these problems for years and have been tried many different things to get rid of them. I visited my M.D. who recommended that I wake up at night to walk in order to improve my breathing and decrease the frequency of my leg cramps. I have also tried to exercise for my plantar fascitis. All of these issues and recommendations made me feel old and unable to do the things that I wanted to. Also I was loosing sleep at night which was affecting everything. After beginning care at Swift Health Chiropractic my breathing much better which has allowed me to sleep at night without the gasping spells. The low back pain has diminished, along with the plantar fascitis and the cramping in my feet and legs. I also have much more energy and flexibility of my body. Most importantly I am regained my optimism that I can do the things that I want to do in my life.

My Body Is Free Of Pain
My job as a dance instructor was severely altered due to the neck pain that traveled down into my shoulders; I also had upper back pain, foot pain, migraine headaches, allergies and hives that I was experiencing. I had been experiencing neck pain for 1-1/2 years, migraines for 2 months and foot pain for 6 months. Due to these problems I visited an M.D. who recommended Imitrex for the migraines and to see an allergist and podiatrist for the other remaining problems. I never went. These issues were affecting the way I lived my life because of the severe discomfort that caused me to stop teaching and not be able to eat certain foods. Now that I have been getting adjusted by Dr. Swift my body is free of pain and I can’t even remember the last time I had a migraine. Even my allergies are gone. Further the hives have diminished immensely.
~Karen, age 47
My Symptoms Have Vanished
I saw five doctors and was in and out of hospitals for five years before coming to see Dr. Swift. I was suffering from heavy stomach pains, irregular periods, and hay fever. I felt tightness in my neck and shoulders, and had a great deal of pain in my low back. I also felt numbness in my toes when I sat for long periods of time. This affected my ability to dance, which is huge part of my life. I felt like I was always visiting doctors and sometimes could not find the strength to get out of bed. Now that I am a patient at Swift Health Chiropractic, I am feeling wonderful. My symptoms have vanished and I am able to enjoy my life again.

Swift Health Chiropractic Has Changed My Life
When I entered Swift Health Chiropractic, I was suffering from allergies at least once a month . I felt a continuous tightness in my neck and upper back. These symptoms affected my daily life and athletic abilities. The pain and tightness in my neck and back made it difficult to play volleyball, which is a sport I love. The results I have received under care at Swift Health Chiropractic has changed my life. I no longer suffer from allergies and I rarely have back or neck discomfort. I am able to play a game of volleyball without having to stop because of the pain!
~Lindsey, age 17
I have been experiencing constant migraine headaches for approximately 1 to 1.5 months. The migraines were forcing me to seek dark places with no noise and relax for 1 to 4 hours at a time. They also disrupted my sleep habits which caused me to be tired during my work day. I tried to solve the problem by seeing a neurologist who prescribed me “anti-seizure” medication which were not stopping the migraines. After adjustments to my neck from Dr. Swift I never experienced a migraine again.
~Mark, age 59
Having jaw pain for the last 25 years of my life has really made it tough to be happy in my daily life. Not only was it annoying but it also drained me of my energy. In an attempt to improve my situation I actively sought out and saw 4 jaw specialists and 6 other chiropractors. However I was unable to get relief from my pain. This process made me depressed and apathetic about life in general. Since going to see Dr. Swift my jaw pain has dramatically improved. Even better than that is my depression is gone and I have much more energy. Overall, these changes have affected all aspects of my life because of the impact that the depression was having on me.
Neck and Low Back Pain
I worked for the Orange County Public Transit System for ten years. The long hours of bus driving caused pain in my neck and low back. I was often tired and uncomfortable. I have always approached health by using natural methods of healing. Chiropractic care have completely eliminated my back and neck pain. I function much better and have more enthusiasm for life. Thank you Dr. Swift!

~Rosemarie, age 61
My job was profoundly affected because of extreme feelings of anger and frustration due to my autism. These feelings were really slowing me down at my job doing ground maintenance. I also had back pain which was why I originally came in to see Dr. Swift. This problem had been going on for over a year before I decided to try and get help. Since going to Dr. Swift my life has really changed for the better. Not only did my back pain improve dramatically but I was also able to control my feelings better at work and have much more energy. All of this translated into a much better working environment for me and those working around me. These improvements have also made my daily life much less stressful and more enjoyable.

Chiropractic helps youth’s back pain
Hi my name is Samantha and I am 11 years old. For about 2 weeks my lower back hurt . It hurt so bad I could barley walk and had a very hard time getting into a comfortable position. My family and I visited one doctor to see what was wrong. “Just low back pain” she said. After my first treatment with Dr. Swift however, my back pain was much improved. It made it much easier to dance.
Samantha, age 11
Whole Body Hurt
Before starting treatment at Swift Health Chiropractic my whole body hurt. I had headaches on and off, Numbness in both arms and hands, Heaviness and Numbness in my Legs and constant Mid to Low Back and Hip Pain. All of these problems stemmed from a drunk driving accident I was involved in 7 years ago and because of poor posture. Due to all of these ailments I found it very hard to push myself through the day. After one visit with Dr. Swift I have no pain or numbness in my hands, back, legs or anywhere. I also have also noticed a tremendous increase in my energy levels. I even feel taller and lighter and ready to face the world! After feeling terrible for so long I break down and cry at how much relief I feel.
~Shannon, age 34
No Longer On Medication
I had numerous symptoms upon entering Swift Health Chiropractic. I was suffering from low back and leg pain, head aches, and I had severe pms. These symptoms made it hard to walk, sit and work. I went to the emergency room to get help. The medical doctors put me on medication and muscle relaxers. They wanted to do surgery. I decided to come to Swift Health Chiropractic as an alternative to the surgery. Needless to say, I have had amazing results. I have hardly any back or leg pain. My head aches have almost become completely obsolete and cramping has lightened. Most importantly, I am no longer on any medication.
