Dr. Thomas Lightner
Your Burlingame Chiropractor

I suffered a back injury in my early 20s, and have relied on chiropractic for pain relief and mobility for decades ever since.

My chiropractor of many years retired last year, and I was dreading the idea of searching for a new doctor when a good friend and fellow back pain sufferer on the peninsula told me about his chiropractor, Dr. Lightner.

Dr. Lightner is easily the best chiropractor I have ever had. For one thing, he's a big guy, and has no problem getting everything lined up the way it should be.

Besides his expertise as a Doctor of Chiropractic, he also has extensive knowledge of physical therapy, stretching, and massage therapy.

Dr. Lightner spent almost thirty years mastering many different forms of martial arts, and has a deep personal understanding of the importance of muscle strengthening, flexibility, and the treatment of injuries.

I highly recommend Dr. Lightner to anyone, who like me, wants to get out of pain, become stronger, and develop more mobility and vitality.

I might add that I live in the central valley, and travel over two hours each way to reach his office. That's how happy I am with Lightner Chiropractic!

I feel like a new person! I have been battling a chronic neck problem & headaches for about 4 years now and nothing I had tried worked. I tried everything: physical therapy, acupuncture, cortisone shots, massage, even a different chiropractor with no lasting results. When Dr. Lightner moved into my office building I thought that I'd give it a try and see if I got different results since I was desperate for relief. Thank goodness I did! I have not had this much mobility in my neck and this many days without headaches in years and the adjustments to my neck have truly been amazing. I feel instant relief and lasting relief and significantly less pain than I have in years. I'm 27 years old and after years of sports injuries and chronic pain, I didn't think this relief was possible.

He is a great chiropractor and nice guy. His office is really great with a welcoming feel that is not intimidating. He incorporates adjustment and massage to help loosen the tight muscles causing much of the problems associated with the subluxations or vertebrae that are out of place.

I would highly recommend Dr. Lightner as a fantastic Chiropractor that has a genuine interest in your overall health and well-being.

I used to get severe migraine head aches and pain in my right side.  Once I made an appointment with Dr. Lightner, he explained how chiropractic care can solve those problems. Not only did he educate me about how everything is connected in the human body, but also how he was going to correct , almost like preventive maintenance on your car.  Today my headaches are gone and no more back or leg pain.  It's amazing not taking any medication and having relief.  Thank you Dr. Lightner.

I have been getting chiropractic treatment from Dr. Lightner for years. The adjustments to my neck, back, hips, elbows and wrists keep me moving properly without aches and pains.  He recommended that I build up good muscle tone to support the bones that he keeps aligned, and often suggests strengthening techniques with weights.

His office also has a resident massage therapist who can do deep tissue massage, and I carry a lot of my stress in the neck and shoulders, so it's nice to have those muscles worked on every now and then.

Each visit to Lightner Chiropractic is a personal and healthy experience, and I never leave without learning something new, whether it be a nice stretch or nutrition advice.

Dr. Lightner is a kind and intelligent man, and a great chiropractor.  I will continue to be his patient as long as he practices.
