I sought Dr. Urban’s help after our recent move to Maui. I selected him because he is a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. I knew Palmer College to be legitimate and felt that not knowing any doctors on Maui this was the one thing I had to go by in choosing a doctor. However, having said that, I never realized the difference an individual doctor could make!
Dr. Urban is the most professional, seriously caring Doctor of Chiropractic I have ever been to! He really studies your x-ray to determine how to proceed in adjusting what needs correcting. (And if you are rolling your eyes right now thinking you don’t need to spend the extra few dollars for an x-ray then think again! YOU NEED AN X-RAY!) I have been to several Chiropractors over the years, and I get it, they take an x-ray and nothing is ever mentioned to you about the outcome. The Chiropractor gives you the “general adjustment” (hips, back, neck), making the appropriate cracking noises leaving you feeling slightly better, but never really correcting anything long term. Dr. Urban is NOT this type of Chiropractor! There is NO “wham-bam-thank-you-maam” approach.
If this is what you are receiving or have received in the past, you need have only have one visit with Dr. Urban to know to never allow yourself to be treated in that manner again!
Dr. Urban reads your x-ray and goes over it with you so that you can understand it and see for yourself what’s wrong. He explains what his findings are and puts together a plan on how to correct it. Dr. Urban is head and shoulders above any Chiropractor I’ve ever been to. He genuinely cares about you and what he can do to help. How lucky are we to live in Paradise and then find such outstanding care to boot!
In my particular case, I had been on the losing side of a run-in with a large wave the previous year. Upon my return to Iowa, I explained to my previous Chiropractor what had happened. He never took an x-ray and proceeded to give me the “general adjustment” I described above. After moving here this year, I went to Dr. Urban and after viewing my x-ray he immediately asked if I’d had problems with my groin? Had I! I had been having problems standing after sitting for over a year! After reviewing my x-ray, Dr. Urban explained that my sacrum was rotated (twisted!). He adjusted it and I haven’t had any problems since! He has also been working to correct my mid-back (this I attribute to being chained to a desk my entire work life), and he is working on old injuries to my neck that I never knew I had! I’ve had pressure in my neck all my life. I thought I was just always stressed out!
Slowly, but surely Dr. Urban is putting me back together so that my husband and I can have the retirement we have always wanted. For this, I am truly grateful! Thank you Dr. Urban!!!
Having received a serious back injury in my youth I am well aware of the Chiropractic practice. However not all chiropractors are able to achieve the desired results. Therefore some people have come to believe that chiropractic work is not effective in helping there relief of pain, or other symptoms that may be related. This is not the case with Dr. Urban. He is one of the most effective chiropractors I have found. He is able to do structural realignment without a large quantity of undo force. Using a complete diagnostic plan including x-rays he is able to pinpoint the locations of the problem. Then using the Gonstead technique is able to realign the problem areas, in a gentle but effective manner bringing the desired results, removing pain and giving back the physical strength lost through improper alignment. I have and do recommend Dr. James P Urban to my friends and people I meet who are suffering and need chiropractic help.
Seeing Dr.Urban helped me out a ton. I never realized how out of place my neck and upper back was until it was pointed out. I was just living with easily aquired headaches and just thought that it was normal, but turns out that my neck was out from when I fell out of a tree when I was younger. It caused me to constantly be in pain, but after seeing Dr. Urban for a couple of months the headaches gradually lessened until I stopped having them all together! Before when I would surf, my shoulders, neck and head would hurt afterwards, but now I can surf without any of those things happening. Definitely recommend a visit to Dr. Urban!
Dr. Urban’s methods for helping my extreme lower back pain go away have been incredibly affective. I would encourage everyone “on Maui” with a sore or painful body to see Dr.Urban. Not only for the relief from the pain but to actually get your body to heal.
Dr. Urban is kind,compassionate,thorough and certainly well schooled in his profession! I would not hesitate for a second to wholeheartedly recommend him…in fact, I have many times!!
I saw Dr Urban at Whole Foods Market where he was featuring a free spinal review on a lap too via a scanner to the spinal cord… I had never been to a chiropractor and not only was curious but also discussed with him of constant recurring headaches .. Because I had these headaches for years they had become a normal part of my life and Dr Urban told me no one should be suffering with headaches throughout their lives… On examine the free scan done that day he found there were some misaligned vertebrae . I went to his office and the service was exceptional friendly and relaxing… From the reception to the staff and then Dr Urban. One thing I was impress about is that it was not enough for the doctor to see the misalignment on lap top. In office he gave some other test and I had an X-ray which was very affordable …. The X-ray truly shows what’s happening with the spine and the Doctor gave detailed information of what he was going to do to adjust before he did it…… I had a few sessions with remarkable results and headaches remain at bay…. It’s wonderful to live without the constant headaches …. Thank you Doctor for your kindness and your help…. There is still some other vertebrae to align but what has been done so far has been remarkable… Mahalo Dr Urban…
If you want to have more energy, feel stronger, and sleep better then do yourself a favor and give Dr. Urban a visit. I wasn’t looking for long term solutions for my chronic neck and back issues but just a short time after my first visit his reasonably priced, results driven, comfortable and effective treatments have more than paid for themselves. Mahalo Dr. Urban!
I first went to see Dr. Urban about a problem I was having with my ankle. He was very kind and informative and spent time talking with me, as I was a little nervous because I had never been to see a chiropractor before. I left that day with no more pain shooting up my leg!!! I returned to see Dr. Urban because I felt I was having a problem with my hips. We discussed looking at my spine to see if that may be causing the imbalance. I obtained an X-ray of my spine so he could further evaluate with an actual “blueprint”. The X-ray was eye opening!! Due to the position of my coccyx and several other vertebrae I realized that my body/nervous system had been existing in a state of dis-ease. We developed a plan to try and put things back into their proper alignment. After several visits I could feel a noticeable change, but the most UNEXPECTED and AMAZING thing happened. The area of my spine that had been most effected was my low back (lumbar). The nerves in this area affect the reproductive system. After years of a really intense menstrual cycle I had a complete and total shift !!!!! No more cramping, no more back pain, my cycle shortened from seven days to about four, and my PMS was worlds better!!! At first I thought it was just a coincidence, but it has been four months now and as a woman I can say I wish someone had told me sooner that a little chiropractic work could help with horrible menses!!! This was really amazing to me. It has also been quite rewarding to feel my body returning to a place of ease and comfort. Dr. Urban is very professional, yet easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend Dr. Urban to anyone who would like holistic chiropractic care. Thanks for the magic Dr. U
Dr. Urban is a wonderful kind chiropractor who is knowledgeable and very skilled. He also does a wonderful energy technique that is very relaxing. He has helped me very much with my frozen joints due to R. A. Blessings, Dr. Urban.
I’ve been receiving chiropractic care from Dr. James Urban for about a year now, and have been very happy with the results from his care, i have seen other doctors, and have very little relief from pain in my back and neck, Dr. Urban has help me to get some of my strength back in my arms and also relieved some of my discomfort, in my back, by opening up some of the nerves that seem to be blocked, i’am very happy to have found someone like Dr. Urban to give me back the quality of life i have now, thanks again.
I was referred to Dr. Urban by a friend and have been very happy with the results. I had seen a couple other chiropractors on Maui, but was never satisfied with the results. Dr. Urban offers compassionate, personalized service and he makes himself available after hours to address emergency situations. I highly recommend Dr. Urban to help you get back to feeling good again.
As a part-time Maui resident, I was seeking a chiropractic doctor who had been trained in the Gonstead method. At home in New Mexico, I had been undergoing regular chiropractic treatment for chronic pain in my neck and left shoulder. Continuing this treatment was important in alleviating the problem while I was on Maui. So happy to find Dr. James Urban…upon reviewing my X-ray, he began adjustments which have resulted in huge gains in the mobility of my neck, along with significant pain reduction. Dr. Urban clearly explained what was going on in my hip, spine, and neck, along with his plan of action and adjustments necessary to achieve better alignment. I highly recommend Dr. James Urban for your chiropractic wellness choice on Maui.
When I first came to see Dr. Urban I was suffering with chronic discomfort due to a nerve impingement in my cervical spine. After exploring many alternative modalities I found Dr. Urban’s approach very effective, and I feel improvement after each visit with him. Dr. Urban has an exceptional insight into this medicine, his touch is very therapeutic, and most importantly he cares about our long-term health and not just fixing the problem in the moment. Thank you for your care Dr. Urban.
I just moved to Maui this year and needed to find a good chiropractor. I have been getting chiropractic care since 2005, so I was already familiar with what my body needed. I searched google and found Dr. Urban. What a god-sent. He is awesome! He really listened to my concerns and addressed them head on. He has helped me so much that now I have my husband seeing him too! And the best thing is that he’s very flexible with scheduling an appointment. I can call him the same day and get in! And he has this new appointment reminder that texts me a reminder 30 min before my appointment so I don’t forget. Very convenient. I highly recommend Dr. Urban!
