Conditions Treated


  • Headaches

"In only one month of seeing a chiropractor I've found that my headaches  are virtually gone.  Now instead of constant pain, I can concentrate on working out and being active, things I had a very hard time, or couldn't do at all before.  I tell people I'm addicted to my chiropractor because my life is much easier and more enjoyable now that I'm not hurting and sore all the time.  If you haven't tried it I would definitely recommend that you do."   ~H. Wilson

  • Neck pain

"Since I am unable to take anti-inflammatory medications for pain due to prior medical history, my family doctor recommended chiropractic help for my shoulder, neck, and back pain.  Dr. Burd came highly recommended by close friends.
When I first came to Spinal Specialists of Delaware, I was unable to lift my right arm over my head and was in pain with all movement involving my right shoulder.  After a few months of treatment I am able to resume normal day-to-day activities with my shoulder and also see improvement in my neck and back pain.  All of this came about without medication, and the patience and skill of Dr. Burd.  Many thanks! "

  • Back pain

"I had pain in my back and leg.  After 2 visits, I am free of pain.  This has been a wonderful experience for me because it works!  Try it."    ~Jeri H. 

  • Car Accidents

"I am writing to express our sincere appreciation for the outstanding results Bob and I have experienced from your care.  My familiarity with chiropractic care has been rather extensive. I started treatments as a result of an accident at the age of 5. Over the last several years I tried numerous types of chiropractic treatments and discovered each doctor had a different style or technique and the results were always short term.  Since you started working with Bob after his auto accident, he has noticed a considerable reduction in back pain. The ongoing treatments have allowed him to improve his recovery time.  Dr. Golod, it is obvious that you truly care about your patients and their overall well-being. You take the time to listen and learn about them as individuals and develop the appropriate treatment that fits their personal needs.  It is through this type of care we have found your approach to be the most successful and best long-term solution."  ~Diane H.         

  • Work Injuries
  • Numbness and tingling
  • Carpal tunnel

 "Due to the nature of my job, my overworked hand had developed carpal tunnel.  I lost strength, had constant pain and I had tingling and numbness in my fingers.  I saw a hand specialist who suggested surgery.  Surgery was a last resort to me.  I contacted Dr. Burd (who helped my husband avoid surgery for his thoracic pain), and although it took several visits, my hand started to show remarkable improvement.  Today my hand is back to where it was before.  I am still working the job that I feel caused the problem, but regular check-ups keeps my hand pain-free."

  • Fibromyalgia

"When my wife and I first met, she was a vivacious, energetic woman.  Just 6 short months later, she was in so much pain that she was unable to move.  Many doctors and many years later, we finally found an answer:  fibromyalgia.  What we didn't know is that fibromyalgia is as much a question as an answer, and many more years would pass before she felt able to do all the things we used to love to do together.  Dr. Burd, what you have done for my wife, Jennifer, has been life altering.  She is nearly back to the person I married and I believe this is due to your skill and caring."          ~Jon S.

  • Sciatica

"I have had sciatica pain in the back of both legs for several years.  Arthritis in both hips kept me from doing many things.  Since going to Dr. Golod for approximately two months, I have had no pain and I'm able to do so many things, such as climbing stairs, ladders, doing housework that I had trouble doing before.    ~Rosemarie C."

  • Pinched nerve
  • Disc related pain 

" When I came to Dr. Golod I had been in almost constant extreme pain for over 8 months. Even though I was seeing other doctors for this (including other chiropractors, physicians, and physical therapists), nothing was helping for more than a few hours at a time. The worst part was the disruption of my sleep. I would wake up in pain several times per night. The net result was not only the pain but ongoing chronic fatigue and sleepiness, which was interfering with my job.  Within the first adjustment by Dr. Golod, I felt a difference. The strategies she used for assessment picked up some subtle problems missed by my former chiropractors. Moreover, her adjustments techniques pinpointed specific sites that in my case had been previously over looked. Perhaps best of all was Dr. Golod's attitude. She took my complaints seriously. If I expressed any residual pain, she immediately sought to remedy it even if it meant extended effort and time from her.  Within a few months, my acute pain has improved immensely. We're now improving problems I've had for years that I had thought I would just have to live with. I feel lucky to have her in my life."        ~Donna H.                                                                                                                                  

  • Pain secondary to pregnancy

"My arrival to Dr. Julia Golod's office six months ago was the start of a much needed recovery.  At five months pregnant, I pulled something off of a high shelf and severely pulled my back.  After several trips to my family doctor, and an orthopedic specialist (and the ER!) a friend suggested chiropractic care-skeptical, but in a lot of pain, I met with Dr.Julia.  She explained that treating a pregnant woman is risky and not many physicians would see me but she knew what was safe and after an initial assessment, we scheduled a treatment series-within two weeks, I no longer needed any pain meds, my mobility returned, and I began feeling normal-very pregnant(I outgrew the table!), but normal.  Thank you Dr.Julia, for your knowledge, care, and kind mannerism.  My very healthy three-month old and I appreciate it."   ~Tracy B.

  • Sports injuries

"Six years ago I had a skiing accident (I was going too fast and caught my ski while trying to stop, flipped and landed on my head). I have been in increasing pain since that time. The doctors including a Neurosurgeon said there wasn't much they could do. I decided to see a chiropractor. A great decision! What a difference Dr. Julia has made in my overall condition and feeling of health. First, she did a detailed evaluation of my condition, finding a dislocated vertebrate in my neck. Next, she outlined a plan of treatment. I am now ending the treatment and have almost total relief from the neck pain.
I also had back surgery about 10 years ago and feel more flexibility and relief from my constant back pain because of the adjustments I receive. Dr. Julia is a total professional and really cares about her patient's condition. I am in good hands......."   ~Dale B.

  • Scoliosis related pain
  • TMJ
  • Trigeminal neuralgia symptoms

" I came to Dr. Burd because she was recommended by a trigeminal neuralgia (TN) support group leader.  I'm been seeing chiropractors for years, but never would allow any of them to adjust my neck.  I was afraid that such an adjustment would aggravate my facial pain (TN).  I was thrilled to find out that the nerve ends in the top vertebrae and that if the atlas was out of place, pressure from this could be aggravating the trigeminal nerve. 
Another chronic problem I'd been having was the constant pressure in my head.  All it took to relieve this completely was for Dr. Burd to adjust the bones in my skull. I feel so much better!  My head is so much clearer.  In fact, I wish that I had heeded the advice of the support group leader two years ago.  This would have spared me two years of head pain. "      ~Joanne P.

  • Sprain/strain injuries
  • Shoulder and knee injuries

"I've been seeing Dr. Burd and associates for about four years.  Prior to my initial visit I was in so much pain from my shoulder that I missed work; the second time in 30 years.  After two visits I was back at work and on the road to recovery.  Although the initial pain has not returned, other injuries have required treatment.  The care given has always been such a relief.  They are always able to accommodate appointment changes.  It's a very small price to pay for keeping my life pain free."   ~Robert Stigler
