"I just wanted to let you know since our last visit, whatever you did to my left foot, is amazing because I have not had any tightness on the left side of my lower outside leg.
You are amazing!!!!! Will schedule soon if it tightens again, and my body feels like I am 25!"
"Hi Dr Brad!
Just wanted to let you know that I've been pain free running ever since last Thursday! I was able to run 5 miles yesterday with no pain during or after the run. I just wanted to thank you for everything you did for me! Hopefully I can continue recovering like this!
"Felt SO much better today. Didn't even feel it until mile 10- I had almost forgotten what it had felt like to run without pain :-)
Thank you so much! Will see you when we get back from vacation.
"My personal experience at De Novo Chiropractic & Health has proven to be one of restored health. The relief from a non-mobile shoulder and painful neck is a direct result of knowledgeable and caring doctors. Trust was never an issue due to their open communication policy. They explained my diagnosis and treatment plan with an invitation to direct any further inquiries to either of them. When asked about my progress I simply stated, "I feel ten years younger!" I plan to schedule any future appointments that require chiropractic treatment exclusively with this office."
"I am a running enthusiast and for the past 5 years, I have been plagued by lower back pain and knee and foot pain from overuse injuries that have severely hampered my running ability. I have been to orthopedic and sports medicine doctors and had many physical therapy sessions all with limited and short term success. I was starting to get depressed about my injuries and thinking that this was it, they weren't going to get any better than this. I thought I might have to give up running altogether.
"I attended a wellness seminar where I work and heard a presentation from Dr. Klueber and Dr. Cohen about the services they offer at De Novo Chiropractic where they practice ART - Active Release Techniques. It sounded promising and thought that I would make one last effort to address my constant pain. I scheduled a consultation and began treatment. They took the time at the beginning to carefully identify the problem areas and developed a plan from treatment of the injuries, as well as the many surrounding muscles and tissues. Through their treatment techniques they were able to improve my range of motion, reduce my pain and restore function and flexibility to those areas.
"In a little over 2 months they have me back to running consistently but more importantly pain free. Five months later, I completed a half marathon. I thought that my running days were over!
"I cannot thank Dr. Klueber and Dr. Cohen enough for genuinely caring about my well being, providing excellent care, offering their leadership, enthusiasm and encouragement and for giving me back the sport that I love."
"Dr. Cohen and Dr. Klueber have been dubbed my 'running angles,' and for good reason. A month into training for my first half marathon, I began to experience pain in my knee. My IT band was tightening up to the point that it was affecting my runs and stretching along wasn't helping. A good friend directed me to De Novo Chiropractic and within four treatments, my leg had loosened up completely. During the next several months leading up to the race, I continued to be impressed with their knowledge and professionalism during my weekly maintenance visits. Thanks to Dr. Cohen and Dr. Klueber, I had a great first half marathon experience and am confident that I'll be able to tackle my first full 26.2 healthy and smiling."
"De Novo is a pretty unusual chiropractic office, but also pretty awesome. Drs. Cohen and Klueber are the only staff in the office - you don't spend any time sitting in the waiting room, and all the time that you're in there is spent with the doctors. All the scheduling and billing stuff is done using a computer-based system. They are both chiropractors, and are trained in Active Release Techniques as well (this is a kind of soft-tissue work, which is really good for many painful conditions). They both have full-body certifications in ART, which is nice and not especially common in Pittsburgh. In terms of insurance, they seem to take a variety of plans. I'm on UPMC insurance, and the copay or whatever still isn't too pricey for me (and I'm a graduate students, so I'm not exactly rolling in dough). I've been going to De Novo for a couple weeks now because of knee pain, and Dr. Cohen has really helped out a lot. A typical treatment session lasts about 15-20 minutes, consisting mostly of ART (although I did get my back cracked once or twice). Although it's been really helpful for me, I wouldn't describe ART as 'painless' or 'pleasant', so 15 minutes is plenty of time. The first session last longer than that because they collect a pretty detailed personal history. They are also interested in your everyday activities, and they give you some exercises/stretches to do at home to help your condition. Overall, it's really great because you know how when you go to the doctor or chiropractor or whatever, you spend about an hour there and you only see the doctor for like 15 minutes? Here you only spend like 20 minutes in the office and you see the doctor the whole time.
The things I've liked the most about this place is the extent to which they encourage you to maintain your normal fitness routine - I've had previous doctors tell me to not do certain activities that I really enjoy and want to continue to do. De Novo seems a bit more interested in helping people continue to maintain their goals about fitness, so if you're trying to recover from a sports-related injury, or if you want to maintain an active lifestyle during treatment for whatever is ailing your, I would definitely recommend them.
Additionally, both of the chiropractors are certified as personal trainers, and they offer personal training and nutritional consultation services. The Downtown location is convenient to a lot of difference places, too, and the hours are convenient for people who work."
"After years of distance running, I began to experience debilitating shin pain. For 15 months I exhausted all forms of "traditional" treatment, but was frustrated by my lack of improvement. A friend recommended Dr. Klueber, whom I now (only half) jokingly refer to as the Magic Man. I'll be the first to admit I was skeptical, but I noticed marked improvement after only a few Active Release Technique (ART) treatments. Three months ago, I was unable to run... now I am training for a spring marathon.
Whereas other doctors brushed me off and threatened surgery, Dr. Kluber really took the time to understand my injury and prescribe the best treatment (even if the best treatment didn't come from him). Dr. Klueber has also been highly respectful of my time. Instead of scheduling a multitude of appointments, we've worked together to maximize the time between treatments. I'm so happy with De Novo Chiropractic's accessible, mindful approach. I recommend De Novo and Dr. Klueber to all my friends and family!"

"I started seeing Dr Klueber in his Pittsburgh office almost 11 months ago. At that point in time I was seeing him at the reccomendation of a co-worker because the arthritis in my knees had reached the point that I could only walk the shortest of distances on some days, and he had helped her with the same problem. The orthopedist was already talking about knee replacement surgery but was reluctant to do it because of my age - I was only 52 at the time. I could tell after only a few visits that the ART (Active Release Tecnique) was helping, but also knew that I was not going to get complete relief unless I lost some weight, which I had tried over and over again to do, with little, (and short lived), or no success. I only had to voice this concern to Brad, and he started working with me from a nutritional standpoint at that time. To date I have lost 78 lbs. I don't know where I would be without him - I am almost certain that I would have had to either have surgery or quit my job. Dr Klueber is the ultimate doctor - he truly cares for you as a whole person, not just whatever your particular problem is. He is always reachable - if he doesn't answer the phone it's because he's with a patient and they are receiving his undivided attention a that time - but it's never long before he responds to your message. I have been seeing chiropractors since I was 17 and no one has ever helped me like Brad has. As far as I am concerned no one could come more highly recommended."
