Rick Hagen- Boat Captain

"I want to thank you and your staff for your help in keeping these 52-year-old bones in adjustment for years. More specifically, your treatment of my tendon injury, which allowed me to compete while still injured, is a testament to your knowledge and professionalism. Clearly your fancy state-of-the-art gizmos are for real. I not only survived, but without further injury won First Place in the Masters Division of the Connecticut State Judo Championship. Keep up the good work. Thanks again!

Dear Dr. Hutter,

I know this is long overdue, however, I want to say thank you!

When I brought our daughter Brooke to you she was so miserable. She was 2 months old and cried uncontrollably when we tried to put her on her back to sleep, sit in a bouncy seat or swing. Within 5 minutes at her appointment she was a new baby! I'll never forget the look of relief on her little face. And how her little body just looked so relaxed. She's been great ever since and she's almost 3 now! It's no wonder why when we started to see the same pattern with our 4 month old son Jason we brought him to you. Jason also benefitted greatly from his visit to you. Thank you so much!

Chiropractic Care Saved My Life

A brief testimony of why I chose Chiropractic Care… not instead of, but in addition to!

I had been diagnosed with high blood pressure, 190/110 in 173; I was 23 years old. Being young and believing I could handle myself quite well, I chose to ignore my high BP for the next 25 years.

At 50, I suffered a vitreous hemorrhage in my left eye (bleeding - loss of vision) and had to get a Cardiologist then. My blood pressure was 312/165. That’s right!

My Cardiologist began trying so many different meds with little to no success (did I mention the side effects?) over the next several months. At this point, I started really trying to work with him. “This is is. I’m going to die. Nothing’s working.” I WAS scared.

On my way home, I stopped into Angie’s Pizza. While waiting for my pickup, my eyes fell onto an article about Hutter Chiropractic and that sparked an interest in me. “Maybe this could work. Couldn’t hurt to try.” And try I did/ I booked an appointment at the Mason’s Island light location. The rest is HISTORY!

Dr. Hutter took my BP prior to alignment and immediately after. I was amazed. Slowly, but very definitely, my blood pressure started coming down 5, 10, 15 points per week.

I went into his office 3x per week for the next several months. Finally, with the three of us working together (myself, Dr. Hutter and my Cardiologist), I began to see that maybe I will be able to live a life of OPTIMUM health after all. Today, my blood pressure is stable and very good: 112/68!!!

When I was about 36 weeks pregnant or so a friend recommended you, so I thought I would go.  I was having issues with my hips/pubic bone area, as well as round ligament pain.  To the point where just lifting my feet to walk was excruciating.  I couldn't lift anything and I had a 2 yr old, and it was almost impossible to turn over in bed because the pain was so bad.  After the first few adjustments along with the stretches and exercises, the pain was decreasing and by the time my due date came around, the excruciating pain was gone (I was uncomfortable, but who isn't when they're 9 months pregnant?!) and I could walk just fine! I was able to give birth naturally and had no issues at all! And labor and delivery was only 4.5 hours compared to the 12 with my first. When I first took Sammy, our son, to you he was 3 weeks old and had reflux.  He would throw up after he ate, he would choke and sometimes stop breathing.  He also would NOT sleep on his back and would cry even if his head would tip back at all.   Within 24 hours of his first adjustment (it was so gentle!) he stopped throwing up and the choking and breathing issues were pretty much non-existent after that!  And he started sleeping better! I am a firm believer in Chiropractic care! Thank you Dr. Hutter!

"Believe it or not," I tell my friends and new acquaintenances, "I was in such pain that doctors and surgeons said: No more yoga, riding your horse, riding your bike, indoor cycling..and the list went on." They were taking my life from me as I had known it.
"Surgery for your back is looking imminent." Even my right arm from a prior accident would never straighten up or reach for the stars as I so happily performed througout the years. One day at the hairdressers, a new one for me, I sat sipping herbal tea, while the 'color set.' I overheard a stylist bragging about Edward Hutter, a chiropractor that had gotten her back on her feet after a severe horseback riding accident. WHAT? After two years of no activity and this guy gets her walking? Impossible. But, I'll try it! Dr. Hutter was very cautious. Concerned after viewing my mri and xrays that I might not be a candidate and he had to be cautious. I got it. Not a miracle case like the stylist. I'll go home. He treated me the next day on this most amazing table with this most amazing technique called THE COX TECHNIQUE on the COX TABLE. Having been around the block, I've tried it all and i'm glad for the chiropractic world but I knew surgery was the only answer and Dr. Hutter was only being polite but nothing will work. I got off the table. Untrue. I HOPPED off the table. I was BACK! I followed Dr. Hutters' specific instructions each visit and before I know it: I'm on my horse. I'm in yoga at the Mystic Yoga Shala. I'm not just riding my horse; I'm playing POLO??? I'm taking barre class...I'm strong. I'm 56. I'm alive and well. And whenever it feels bad..whatever it is..even a sore wrist from polo or too many hand stand jump ups in yoga...I hand it over to him. And I am relieved. So many friends cannot get over my story that they are now Hutter Chiropractic patients. The most amazing part is that the right shoulder that had given me such trouble from 4 years before and would not operate or function comfortably..just cleared up around the several and easy sessions at my wonderful chiropractors office. Thank you, Dr. Hutter. You're a life changer for me. And thank you to the stylist at the hair salon whose life was altered enough that she was shedding the light all over the salon that day, 3 years ago.
To whom it may concern:

For all those longtime Chiropractic Doctor doubters out there... Doubt no longer !
I suffered with lower back and hip pain for 9 long excruciating years after an injury at work. It wasn't until I was advised by a friend this summer, to go try Dr. Hutter, that I finally got some relief.... and not just "some"
relief" !!! I was down to almost NO pain by the end of 2 weeks of seeing him.
I can sleep through an entire night, I can get out of a sitting or lying position without any pain at all now. I have totally done away with any pain meds I was on and can attest to the fact that I feel like a whole new person.
I own a brand new 2005' motorcycle that has less then 120 miles on it because I couldn't ride it due to my pain. I am now anxiously awaiting Spring to arrive so I can finally go riding.
If anyone has ever ever doubted Chiropractors or believed in all the old wives tales about them... think again!
Dr. Hutter in particularly has done an amazing job on me. He is like no other
Chiropractor I have ever been treated by. His talents and experience goes far beyond what I have ever felt with a Chiropractor. Not just a simple snap
crackle pop.. No, he uses a special, gentle and caring technique that is a
result of what I believe is years of special training and experience. Take it
from me - I am a true believer now !
Thanks Dr. Hutter

Two weeks on a high potency, three prescription drug cocktail. I wasn’t any better. Every step was extremely painful. Two days of being treated by Dr. Hutter, and I was dramatically better. Since I was off the steroid, the pain should have gotten worse. Instead, every day saw quantifiable improvement in both range of motion and pain level. I cannot be more serious when I say that I could walk again! Before, I couldn’t even walk to the bathroom without grimacing in pain. Then, after Dr. Hutter started, it was manageable, then much better. Now, I walk normally again, I can climb stairs, I can walk my dog in the woods. Talk about restoring hope. Your mind can go into some dark places when you consider where you might be headed, and knowing the struggles other people have. One of the things that continues to impress me (other than that the staff is great), is the quiet confidence that Dr. Hutter has, and the careful consideration of each step. This is real. I’ve lived it. I will be forever grateful.

I have a back condition known as scoliosis. For months, I was in constant pain and mobility was becoming an issue. By chance, I found Dr. Hutter chiropractic clinic in Groton near where I work. After a few treatments, I found the pain was diminishing. Treatments included spine decompression, hot/cold packs, and mild adjustments. After a few more visits, I noticed I was having pain-free days more frequently. In fact, I am able to walk, sit, sleep, work comfortably again. Without hesitation, I would recommend Dr. Hutter and his compassionate staff to anyone seeking relief from back pain. Each staff member seems just as committed to healing the patient as the doctors are. The place is amazing and the people are true healers.

Dr Hutter is the best chiropractor around! I have seen multiple chiropractors in the past, and not one of the compares to Dr. Hutter. He always takes the time to understand what's going on with your body and your pain level. I have lived in pain for almost 9years after a bad car accident but I can honestly say that pain has gone away. I started off seeing Dr. Hutter twice a week and now only see him once a month. The staff and office elements always make you feel welcome and you rarely sit around waiting for your appointment! You won't be disappointed in the quality of care you receive from Dr. Hutter!

The technique Dr. Hutter uses, is the best and most effective treatment I've ever had. I leave with a feeling of euphoria and real relief that you just can't get from a perscription. Real treatment, no drugs. Amazing.

Dr. Hutter,

Last week I completed my 20th visit to you in the past 2 months. I have had a history of spine pain/sciatica issues for over 20 years. My conventional medical treatments included many sessions of physical therapy, lumbar spine injections, lumbar and thoracic MRIs, and of course pain pills. How well did they work; I bought a cane to help me walk late last year. I decided to try chiropractic for the first time and chose you based on recommendations from friends. I am sure glad I did! Because of your expertise on the Cox table and the electronic stimulation, my pain/flexibility tests have indicated I had 50+% improvement after 10 visits and 90+% after 20 visits. I have very little to no pain, it’s just amazing! You are a miracle worker, thank you so much!

Dear Dr. Hutter,

I am writing this to thank you.

A workplace injury exacerbated a cervical spine issue that had been developing for some time that left me, a former 2000+ mile a year cyclist, unable to ride or even walk more than a few 100 feet without extreme pain. Three years of exams and MRIs with the regional, academic spine center and various physical therapists brought only minimal improvement. A friend suggested that I visit with you and, after taking a close look at my MRIs, you set a treatment plan. Yesterday, my fiancé and I walked together for 6 miles along the beach. Three months ago, that would have simply been impossible. Thank you! In many, many ways, you have helped me gain my life back!
