A Few Words From Our Patients

While Dr. Josh alleviated my shoulder, back, and neck issues, he also made it a point to evaluate my posture and provide me with exercises to assist my core stability and train my muscle reflexes for better daily movement. Dr. Josh takes the time to educate and inform his patients, both asking and answering questions to get to the core of the issues. Skeletal health is all about the details, and Dr. Josh gets that. After my adjustments, I am sleeping better, moving better, and just feeling better overall! I highly recommend Dr. Josh! He rocks!

I am so thankful to have found Dr. Josh. I’ve tried every treatment out there for 4 years following a back injury and Dr. Josh is the first person to actually relieve the constant pain. The entire staff truly cares about your health. The treatment goes far beyond chiropractic treatment, they also work with brain because everything is connected. I would recommend Dr. Josh to anyone with chronic pain.

I’m so happy that I found Dr. Josh, I suffered from Vertigo and terrible headaches. I’ve had many issues over the years due to neck and head injuries. My dizzy spells are COMPLETELY GONE and my headaches are much less. I would highly recommend them! I now have three of my sons seeing Dr. Josh. They train and compete in Jiu-Jitsu as well as MMA. Recently one of my sons injured his sternum and popped out a few ribs while training, his very first appointment helped him tremendously! He also has all of us on wonderful supplements as well as me changing my diet to gluten and dairy free, which has be feeling like a new person. I can’t thank him enough for helping us to get healthy and giving me my life back.

Love this place and everyone who works there, thanks so much!

      Dr. Harper is great.  His new office is in a really nice business park and e has all the tools there to improve your body to its optimal performance.  I really enjoyed my deep tissue work and adjustment and felt that there was a real difference after.  I will be going back soon!  Thank you, Calispine!

      I've always been a bit terrified of chiropractors, but after a few super fun freak injuries the past two years, I had to try something since nothing else had been working.  A mountain biking crash brought me in the doors, but in just a few weeks Josh and Kazusa have helped fix me from my concussion/shoulder separation, and also years of misalignments from Jiu Jitsu, snowboarding, skating, surfing and whatever else I get myself into!  There is so much more than just adjustments; they are working with me on many exercises for my body and my brain, finding all the imbalances and helping to strengthen them!  It's been an awesome experience overall, and I'd highly recommend them to anyone!

      Dr. Josh Harper has helped me recover from  painful cramping muscles in my neck from sky diving and snowboarding injuries. And he's done this in only 8 weeks. For the first time in so long, when I wake up in the morning I don't feel stabbing or burning pain on the left side of my neck.

    Seeing Josh has become an Integral part of my pain management, along with swimming, dance and yoga. I'll be skipping the neurosurgeon appt that my primary care office made. I can't believe I put up with throbbing and stabbing pain in my neck and  shoulders for 25 years.

    I'm really grateful that I found CaliSpine.

    So I'm telling all my chronic pain patients about Josh and Kazusa.

      Worth every minute of the 1.5 hour drive.  Dr Harper and Kazusa are the reason I finally have an end to 8 years of chronic back pain. I have been to many specialists/Chiropractors/physical therapist and none of them were able to do what Calispine did in finding out the root causes to my pain

    I was not an easy case and had many years of bad body mechanics to go against. I wanted an easy/fast out and Dr Harper made me realize that there wasn't one. I had to put in the time and effort along with his treatments to see change.

    I feel better than I ever have thanks to the Calispine team, and would suggest them to anyone who is wanting a permanent change in their health.

      His methods may work well, but I didn't like that I had to go to two sessions before they would give me a clear diagnosis.  I also didn't get much advice on stretches or exercises to do at home after the first visit.  Had to really fight to get more details on what was wrong with me and I didn't like that.

    Went to some other place that didn't waste time with finding root cause, diagnosis and take home exercises, stretches and posture tips after only one visit.  Another doctor found how extremely tight my hips and hamstrings were and I'm disappointed Calispine didn't tell me this right away!

    Calispine does warn you that they take a holistic approach, but I didn't realize how much time and attention these psychological and vision tests were going to take away from treating my back.  My other chiropractor is just as concerned about giving you the tools to stay healthy long term but cut to the chase much more quickly.

      Dr. Josh and his assistant Kazusa are amazing. This was my first time seeing a Chiropractor so I was a little nervous and didn't really know what to expect. They both do a great job at making you feel comfortable and you can tell Dr. Josh is extremely knowledgeable in his field. Very happy with my first visit, already booked another appointment 🙂

      Josh really knows his stuff!  Not your ordinary chiropractor- it goes WAY beyond...

      I can't say enough about CaliSpine! It's fun and laughs, from a fantastic staff. Dr. Josh is an abundance of knowledge, when it comes to the spine, neck and back issues. Kazusa works on the exercises that you practice at home for rehabilitating the injury. They are a great team. I love that there is an end in sight when it comes to taking care of the issue and not an indefinite amount of visits. I did a five day intensive for some hip pain that was progressively getting worst. I learned so much through the process and my hip is so much better.
    I have never experienced a chiropractor that was as knowledgeable, driven, people oriented, caring and funny as Dr. Josh. Every time I contacted the office Kazusa was so kind and welcoming. Her kind, caring and genuine spirit adds so much to the experience. I am even bringing my 11 and 9 year old! I would highly recommend Cali spine.

      Dr. Josh is awesome! He's taken such great care of me this year, and I totally recommend him to anyone and everyone. I started going to see him when I injured my IT band and he quickly got me feeling better.  I continued to see him after my injury was better for adjustments.

    About 2 months ago, I had ACL surgery and had to walk with a straight leg brace for 6 weeks, which totally messed up my alignment. Dr. Josh helped me stay in alignment and reduced the pain I was feeling as a result of walking in a brace.

    I'm super stoked on Dr. Josh.

      Dr. Josh had treated me several times and he is by far the most comprehensive chiropractor in San Diego. He specializes in functional neurology and movement correction in addition to joint manipulation. Over the years, my knees have slowly gotten worse (no medial meniscus which has caused osteoarthritis) so I have a lot of pain just bending my knee. After even just one treatment, he was able to get my knee to bend without any pain and with much less tightness around the joint. He's also continuing to improve my balance with the neuro exercises he has taught me to do. My quality of life has gotten much better since I started to incorporate Doc Josh's exercises and his treatments! Thank you!
