I have serious scoliosis of my upper back and a very pronounced loss of the natural curve of my neck. I also have some discomfort in my right hip area and have a diagnosis of mild asthma for which I take and inhaled medication twice daily. After working the Dr Aki for some weeks now, I have noticed a definite decrease in the discomfort of my hip & a lessening of the limp that had caused by my hip’s poor alignment. I have noticed an improvement in the symptoms of my asthma also. I can now walk a longer distance without shortness of breath than was possible before starting therapy. I fell the manipulation and the exercises I have been taught have had positive results for my health.

I originally went to see Dr. Aki due to some knee pain from a running injury that just wasn’t going away. His comprehensive, compassionate approach was so refreshing! He took the time to identify and understand my symptoms and quickly got to the root of the issue. My knee pain went away after following his treatment plan. For a runner, it was such a huge relief to be able to run pain free!
I had such great results that my 3 boys started coming with me (at the time they were 2, 5 and 6). After seeing their x-rays, I was compelled to bring them in. In our current age of technology, my oldest was showing a loss of the natural curve in his neck. Left untreated, he could have had some serious issues as an adult. However, by the time he would have actually felt pain it would have been very hard to correct. Kids bodies respond so quickly to chiropractic, and I was thrilled to know I was setting them up to be healthy and prevent issues as they grow up. They love Dr. Aki and all 3 boys dramatically improved. They rarely get sick anymore because they have a stronger immune system and overall physical health as well.
I also had another running injury in which I hurt my foot to the point of having difficulty walking. (Running on ice in Wisconsin winters can be brutal!) I went to my family practice doctor, but there was nothing that showed up on the x-ray. I was concerned because we were going on a family vacation to Disney. How was I going to walk and be on my feet for a full week?! I saw Dr. Aki, and after 1 adjustment I was able to walk normally again. Amazing and such a blessing!
My middle son (now 6) and I both have TMJ and clench our teeth at night. I have dealt with TMJ for years, but over the past year I was experiencing frequent headaches. I finally brought up my headaches to Dr. Aki, and I was again amazed at how much chiropractic helped the TMJ issue. After just two adjustments, my headaches stopped. This was a huge deal and such a relief. I wish I would have known sooner because I could have been dealing with the root cause instead of trying to treat the symptoms. My son has also improved and is grinding his teeth much less, or sometimes not at all.
Dr. Aki has become an important part of our family’s health journey and an important part of our extended family. He provides excellent care, and Hawaii is lucky to have him as he will be greatly missed in Green Bay, WI. If you see Dr. Aki, you will be seeing a chiropractor who is knowledgeable, compassionate, thorough and absolutely trustworthy!

Dr. Aki has been instrumental in regaining my health and mobility. I have seen a number of chiropractors over the years and have been to physical therapists for lower back and foot problems. I also saw a podiatrist for these foot issues. Dr. Aki was outstanding in how he diagnosed and treated my back and foot issues, to the extent that, at this point, I am pain-free for the first time in at least 15 years. Dr. Aki not only diagnoses and treats the issues effectively, but he goes above and beyond and looks at ways to optimize your health. For example, last year he started a running group to help people who had struggled with muscular issues. He not only ran with you and gave you an assessment of how you ran, but then would do an adjustment at the end of the run. This is way beyond the call of what most chiropractors would do. He really looks for ways to enhance how you live life. He is an outstanding individual and has created permanent change for me.
I would highly recommend Dr. Aki. After all this time and after seeing at least four chiropractors and two physical therapists, this is the first time where I am moving, running, exercising and living life without pain. I would recommend him to anyone.
