I've seen Dr Penner for a few years now when my lower back acts up. It used to be incapacitating for days, and now it's just a one day annoyance. His advice on exercises, and his sure hands have made the difference.
One important thing: he is willing to honestly discuss what's just a theory and what's proven, and admits what might not work. Additionally, his explanations of how the body protects old injuries and winds up atrophying the minor muscles makes a lot of sense...and leads to useful exercise regimes.

I'd never seen a chiropractor prior to Dr. Penner. I've had lower back pain for about 15 years and I'd been to a couple of Primary Care Physicians about it and had x-rays done and they told me that "everything looks normal". Dr. Penner identified the problem (uneven hips) and corrected it after the FIRST adjustment! That sort of success isn't always the case but surely you can imagine my relief and gratitude. I've been seeing him for weekly adjustments for several weeks now and I feel fantastic. He's a great listener and always targets the exact, specific area that needs work. I'm truly impressed! Also, the office staff is extremely friendly and considerate. I've been recommending this place to all of my friends.
Today I had my first massage with Tai and it was the best massage I've ever had, despite the fact that I was not in a spa. She worked with a fair amount of pressure, as that's what I requested, and also targeted the exact areas I asked her to focus on. She was extremely knowledgable about my injury and I'm confident that regular visits with her will greatly help my healing process. She's kind, professional and effective!
I was apprehensive at first to even go to a chiropractor, but am so delighted with the results I've obtained in a relatively short time under Dr. Penner's care that I wish I had gone sooner. He's incredibly knowlegable and professional and lets you know exactly what he's doing and what to expect. Also, the massage therapist in his office, Tai, is the best I've ever had.
I cannot recommend Magnolia Chiropractic & Massage highly enough.
Friendly office staff and comfy waiting area are a plus. Dr. Penner is very personable and easy to talk with. He takes his time with me and really listens to my concerns. In a few weeks my neck pain has improved greatly.
