When Susan Pascal first walked through the doors of HealthQuest, she did so with tears in her eyes. Unfortunately, this had become the norm for Susan. Extreme back pain forced her to go to urgent care and even the emergency room.
When she discovered HealthQuest in a Facebook ad, Susan found hope that she could get better. “I started reading up on who their clients were and their reputation and I tried it out,” she says.
Susan tells us she’s glad she did. Thanks to the treatment she’s received at HealthQuest, she has seen significant improvement.
“It’s dramatic,” she says. “The first couple of weeks were really awesome.”
Susan undergoes a treatment called spinal decompression, which involves stretching the spine using a traction table. Read more about treatment options here. “They put on these harnesses. You lay on a table and they make sure you’re straight and it gently pulls you,” says Susan. “It’s relief.”
Our staff also provides laser treatments and massage. It’s proven to be an effective combination. Susan also raves about the support she’s received from our staff, from Dr. Cogan to the folks at the front desk. “They’re there for you and they make you feel good and positive,” says Susan. “They work with you and they’re just great.”
Can a Facebook ad change your life? Susan says yes it can. She’s sharing her story with the hope of helping others who are living with chronic pain. “HealthQuest if life-changing,” Susan says. “It really took me from a state of constant pain to where I am capable of functioning again. It’s been an awesome experience.”

To see the emotion on Wanda Roberts’ face when she talks about her experience at HealthQuest is to understand the difference it has made in her life.
“I’m feeling better,” she says, speaking through tears. “I actually cried when I came here. I was so happy I had some hope.”
Wanda suffers from neuropathy, a condition she’s dealt with for 4 years, made worse by the chemotherapy treatments she receives for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma.
“Peripheral neuropathy is a problem that plagues 20 million Americans and it’s a huge problem with chemotherapy,” says HealthQuest founder, Dr. Sol Cogan. “The chemotherapeutic drugs, although they can be important at certain times to save your life from the cancer, can really wreak havoc on the body.”
The pain caused by Marta’s neuropathy has been overwhelming at times. She’s experienced sharp pains that she likens to being stabbed as well as sensations that are similar to electric shocks. But, thanks to the treatments she’s received at HealthQuest, Marta has noticed significant improvements.
“They do things to my hands and back and my hips and my feet,” Marta says. “Everything’s helping.”
Her treatment includes wearing gloves that give off pulsating electrodes, as well as placing her feet in a pulsating foot bath. She also receives regular adjustments. Not only is Marta feeling better, she now also has peace of mind. She’s no longer afraid of the pain, and that’s made a big difference in the way she lives her life.
“HealthQuest is amazing,” she says. “It’s a godsend.”
Ralph Yamron, 74, openly admits he “never believed in chiropractors.” But today, he’s one of HealthQuest’s biggest fans. Why? Ralph says it’s because he is no longer dealing with the back and leg pain that has plagued him for years.
“All the doctors said, ‘You have neuropathy,’” Ralph recalls. “Dr. Cogan said, ‘I can treat that.’”
Yamron decided to give Dr. Cogan a try. The results speak for themselves. He can now walk with his grandchildren and go up and down stairs without pain.
“Everything is great. Do this. I’m telling you, I’m an old guy – do this,” Ralph says. “My back is almost no pain at all and my legs are moving well. The only thing I’m still having a problem with is balance and [Dr. Cogan] says he’ll fix that. It’s just a matter of time. And now – I believe him.”
During a recent visit office visit, Ralph showed off the results of his treatment.
“Show them the new you,” Dr. Cogan said as Ralph walked without the help of a cane, something he was not able to do before coming to HealthQuest.
“There’s hope,” Dr. Cogan says. “You don’t have to live with the pain. People are better off allowing their bodies to health themselves whenever possible.”

She described the discomfort in her face as a “stabbing pain” or the feeling of “electric shocks.” Debra Grace of Livonia lived with a painful condition called trigeminal neuralgia for ten long years. By the time she got to HealthQuest, simple things like eating, talking and even smiling were almost unbearable.
“She had a tremendous amount of pain,” recalls HealthQuest founder Dr. Sol Cogan. “We developed a program for her and a couple of other patients that had the same problem and have just had what they say is miraculous results. She has had some really incredible results in a very short period of time.”
Using laser pain therapy, spinal adjustments, and rebuilder, a device that sends tiny electrical signals to the nerves, Debra first came in for treatment four times a week and experienced immediate relief. Now, her treatments have been reduced to twice a week.
In the past, doctors had put her on seizure medications (which resulted in an allergic reaction). Debra thought she had no choice but to live with the pain. But, that was not the case.
“It has helped,” she now says with a smile. “I can talk and eat and brush my teeth without pain. I would say it has been a lifesaver for me.”

When he first came to HealthQuest, Stephen Wozniak, 68, of Dearborn needed a cane or a walker to get around. The US Air Force veteran and Ford Motor Company retiree was in a great deal of pain. Not anymore!
“I had terrible balance… my legs were beginning to be very painful,” Wozniak says. “The VA wasn’t doing anything for me except giving me pain reducers and I wasn’t interested in that. I wanted to throw the cane away and do what I did my whole life, walk without it.”
Stephen came in for a comprehensive examination and our team developed a customized plan. Within two short weeks of treatments, he saw major results. He noticed the feeling starting to come back into his legs and feet again and he was able to walk without the cane for long distances.
“That was the best feeling I’ve ever had,” he says. “I looked at it and I said, ‘this is a miracle.’ What the doctor does is gives you your life back. Instead of sitting around, moping around watching TV all day I get up and go all over the place now. I’m able to keep up with other people I’m walking with. Before I was a laggard. I’d say, ‘just go ahead, I’ll catch up.’ I just feel this has been the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”
During a recent office visit, Dr. Cogan was pleased with Stephen’s progress. He remembers well the first time Stephen came into the office and how much he was struggling.
“What’s so amazing about what we do here is we see that all the time,” Dr. Cogan says. “Every day we have people say to us that we change their life, that they’re able to do things that they couldn’t have done in the past – and I can’t describe how that really feels.”
We are so proud to help our patients literally get back on their feet and resume their normal lives. Find out how HealthQuest can help you. Call today: 1-877-99-QUEST or visit healthquest.us to find the office nearest to you.
Dear Dr. Cogan,
I wanted to thank you for the help you provided me below is my story and feel free to share it with who ever you want.
Through the course of a 10 year career in the NFL one would expect to encounter the effects of that career later in life. In my case, I did, many of them. From Knee to neck to one of the most painful of them all, my back. The night of Nov 8th I felt my back tighten up to the point where the pain showed on my face at the 75th Detroit Lions All Time Team Dinner. Enduring pain through the night, by 8am I found myself in Emergency at Ford Hospital. Unable to walk more then 10 feet at a time. The wheelchair was my only option if I wanted to attend the festivities to be held at Ford Field at 11:30 AM.
The pain was at such a high level that I had to be put on pain killers. I managed to make it thru the game and as I was slowly working my way out of the Stadium, I met a representative from HealthQuest. Without hesitation, he arranged for an MRI the next morning, followed up by a treatment session on the DRX9000.
The MRI basically showed damage to L-4 / L-5 with pinching of the sciatica nerve within 2 treatments I was in a normal upright working position with at least 50% pain reduction the reaction after one week of daily treatment was so noticeable that people that had witnessed the pain and discomfort a week earlier were in disbelief. Following the directions of Dr. Cogan along with the use of the DRX 9000 treatments, after the full length of treatment (about 2 mos) the burning sensation is gone along with the shooting pains down the leg. Even more amazing is the fact that the pain and suffering I went through is completely gone.
I have a lot of friends that have had back problems as a result had surgery or are still suffering with the pain, For me, surgery was not going to be an option, so because of this special and advanced way of treating back injuries, the problem was solved for me. I have personally recommended this treatment to the Detroit Lions organization and will continue to attest to the benefits of this treatment because I am pain free and enjoying every minute of it.
This is my story,
November 19, 2009
I was very excited one morning when I was reading through the Oakland Press and came across an article about you and Spinal Decompression. Of course I was immediately intrigued as your article featured information on a former patient and NFL hall of famer Charlie Sanders – also being a former baseball pitcher who had once struck out Roger Maris. I knew you were the guy I had to see!
When I first came to your office I was not able to move my left leg. I also had constant lower back pain. The pain was so intense that I was confined to a wheelchair. Now, although I am still in a sheelchair, I have full use of my left leg, little to no lower back pain and over an 80% increase in movement in my lower back. I can’t thank you and your staff enough for the gift you have given back to my wife and I. I have confidence with what you have given me and a little bit more persistence I will get out of this wheel chair and walk again, without your help I would have never dreamed this possible.
My name is Collette Boeck and I want to tell you about my experience with Dr. Sol Cogan and how his spinal decompression treatments helped me. I had been having some serious pain in my lower back for several months. It was getting so bad that I couldn’t sit at my desk for an hour at a time without getting up to move. It was so bad that I could not stand for any length of time either. I hadn’t had a decent night’s sleep in weeks. I couldn’t play on the floor with my 2 year old grandson. I couldn’t sit at the table long enough to play a game of cards with my family. I had to cancel out of a breast cancer walk that I had been doing for several years. I knew I wanted to get it checked out before surgery became my only option. Two doctors had already told me that surgery was my best option, but I definitely did not want to go that route. I heard about Dr. Cogan and spinal decompression therapy on the radio and decided to attend an open house at one of his facilities. That was one of the best decisions I have ever made. As soon as the open house was over, I made an appointment with Dr. Cogan. The results of my MRI showed 2 bulging discs and 1 degenerating disc. I had no idea that I had such serious back problems. I met with Dr. Cogan and we talked for quite a while. He decided I was a candidate for the treatments and decided which machine would be the best for me. I started intensive therapy that day, and 7 weeks later I am totally pain free! I was absolutely amazed at how much better I felt after such a short time. Now I can enjoy my grandson and my family again. And I can work an 8 hour day without pain. I am so happy that I made the choice to check out spinal decompression therapy and not have back surgery.
Dear Dr. Cogan,
I’ve been plagued with a sore lower back for several years and it was getting worse to the point where it affected my ability to sleep well. Awakening whenever I turned over to re-postion with a stab of pain. That’s no way to live. I found HealthQuest at a golf show and figured that it couldn’t hurt to have an evaluation. HealthQuest told me they could help me. So what the heck? The first treatment helped A LOT. Then as the treatments continued, I saw more improvement. Now I’m nearly pain free and I get a great nights sleep. It’s well worth the time. THANK YOU for giving me back a spring to my step!
Dear Dr. Cogan,
I battled back problems for several years. After trying multiple programs and treatment aptions, incuding physical therapy. I was desperate for some relief. A friend recommended HealthQuest. My experience has transformed my quality of life. Withing a couple weeks I felt significant relief. As the treatment progressed, the results got even better. I can now do almost everything I did before without pain. I recommend HealthQuest to anyone who has suffered from back pain. It’s good to have my life back.
Dear Dr. Cogan,
I have a bulging disc and sciatica. While the manual adjustments were helping. I was still having issues with pain and walking in general. After several days of decompression, I have already noticed a huge difference. My pain is down to a minimum and I rarely experience any discomfort. Before I came to HealthQuest I could barely walk so its been amazing seeing and felling the progress I’ve made so far.
Dear Dr. Cogan,
Thanks to all the great doctors and staff at HealthQuest for making my back feel so much better. I was in constant pain before being treated here even though all the other doctors I had seen had told me surgery was my only option. I decided to give this a try since I really didn’t want surgery. Within three visits I felt a ton of improvement. I could
sit much more comfortably for hours, touch my toes which I hadn’t done in years. A lot of stiffening in back/neck was going away which made my constant headaches disappear. The improvements are really quite amazing. I’m so glad I tried this and now the pain is pretty much gone and I can do things I used to avoid. I would recommend anyone with
back pain to be evaluated here.
Dear Dr. Cogan,
An MRI showed I had a herniated disc (cervical) with compression on my spinal cord. The neuro surgeon in Saginaw advised that I need surgery ASAP to fuse my neck and relieve the pain. I had pain whevever I tilted my neck which caused my left arm to go numb and at night it would cause a severe throb in my left arm. I met Dr. Cogan at a golf
show and was given a free consultation. He explained to me what he could do to avoid surgery. I started 20 plus treatments of cervical decompression which at the completion of the treatment I was pain free and was able to have complete neck movement without any trouble. I highly recommend the treatment provided, plus the staff was very
courteous and professional.
Dear Dr. Cogan,
After many years of abuse to my back, by playing softball, basketball, football, baseball, climbing mountains and going hunting out west my discs were bulging and pinching my sciatic nerve. The pain, on a scale of 1-10 was definitely a 10 because of the pain. I could not stand or walk for more than two minutes at a time. Not being able to do either of those things made it hard for me to enjoy my hobbies.
For a few years I tried the epidural shots but always after a month or two the pain came back.
I met one of the screeners for HealthQuest at a fishing show and in January of 2011 I decided to give the decompression therapy a try. It has since only been three months since I first started the treatments and I am now pain free. I even went on a pheasant hunt about two weeks ago and was able to walk four to five miles with absolutely no pain! I am convinced that decompression works!
Dear Dr. Cogan,
Before I started treatment at HealthQuest, there was sharp pain in my back, hip and down my right leg. Since my treatment, there is little to no pain at all. The treatments relieved the pain for me.
Thank you HealthQuest,
