Dr. Lightner does a great job taking care of his patients. He has been in his line of work for a while and really knows his practice. If you work in the building or live in Burlingame I recommend him.

Very helpful with back injuries and good price.

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.

Dr. Lightner also has extensive knowledge of sports related injuries and conditioning, physical therapy, stretching, nutrition, and massage therapy, and has several good massage people available upon request.

I recently was in an auto accident and even though I have been seeing Dr Lightner for preventative maintenance, this accident required additional time and attention. I saw my general practicioner after the accident who recommended that I seek chiropractic since I had had success in the past. Dr Lightner helped with the severe neck, shoulder and back pain that were causing migraines and everyday pain. I am now feeling back to my old self after some great adjustments, physical therapy and the time and attention to the injuries that were required for a great rehibilitation process. Thank you again for helping me get back to my best physical self!

Beyond 5 stars ! These two gentlemen were life savers ! My landlord had a stroke
A few years ago and was not provided with the correct tools to regain his independence. Waking is a struggle.

My landlord needed to get to the doctor on a Monday and couldn't walk after spending an entire day at the ER room on Friday only to find out that he needed a chiropractor or my landlord could go to a skilled nursing facility, I made a judgement call and I am so glad I did !

I phoned Dr Lightner on a Saturday morning ..

I Found his number on Yelp and thought hopefully this works out !! Dr Lightner was the only one willing to make a house call, he showed up , on time, and got right to work . After the adjustment was made it was like a miracle my landlord stood up and walked something he couldn't do for over 48 hours. If you need help call Dr Lightner ! Not only is he caring but he knows his stuff !

My back was killing me so I called a bunch of chiropractors at 9am and he was one of the few who answered and was able to schedule a same-day appointment for me. He takes time to explain everything to you, even showing you diagrams and models where your problems may lie. He is also very patient and answers all questions you may have. He doesn't rush through your appointment like other doctors/chiropractors. Besides giving you adjustments, he offers other therapies that may be helpful. He will teach you stretching exercises which has helped me, as long as you are diligent about doing them at home. He's genuinely a nice guy who cares about his patients, calling me to check up on me when my back was at its worse condition. I feel great now and it's all due to Dr. Lightner. You can also find him at the Millbrae Farmers Market.
