Active Life Chiropractic is everything I could have imagined and more. Very professional and friendly. Everyone knows your name and genuinely care about your well- being. All of the Dr.'s and physicians have their own way of treatment so you get to experience various methods of rehabilitation and they all work! I highly recommend them.

Dr. Schade and the entire team at Active Life Chiropractic Clinic are very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful!

I initally went to the Clinic for the food allergy test and decided to try their treatments for consistant headches I was having on the left side of my head. I have only being going to clinic for two months and have already seen great improvments in my headaches and posture.

I have learned so much from the physical therapy team on how to strengthen and correct my posture. This is so important as I sit at a desk most of day and did not realize the strain this causes on different parts of your body. And that there were exercises I could be doing while at work to prevent strain or injury.

I would definitely recommend going to them!!

I do believe Dr. Schade and her fabulous team have helped me learn how to heal, the right way! Dr. Schade really helps to make sure the right treatments are done each time. The excellent physical therapy team teaches strengthening, correct posture and stretching to help heal and prevent injury recurrences. The massages have been the best I've ever received. I was able to experience Graston treatments on my knees. The Graston treatments have made the most amazing improvement in what I thought was osteoarthritis, but in fact, seems to be scar tissue buildup. Chris has helped smooth out the tissue and in just two weeks I've got a very hopeful outlook with regard to my future activity. It's wonderful to be able to move without pain!

The team at Active Life is incredibly competent, and after just a few weeks of sessions I feel that the program is making signifant progress in my quest to decrease chronic muscle tension and correct posture and proper spinal alignment. This clinic is great for active, athletic individuals who have come to a place where their issues are beyond what diet and exercise can solve, and offers another kind of intervention to improve longterm bodily health. The South Austin location is nice and convenient, too!

Dr. Schade and all of the wonderful staff at Active Life Chiropractic have worked wonders on my decades old headache problem. I feel like the treatments have offered me a *real* fix from the inside out. I would say this is a very holistic and pragmatic way of looking at the body and our health.

The office is extremely personable and completely helpful. The location is nice and next to many great South Austin spots.

I was sceptical of what benefit I could really receive from chiropractic care but was willing to give it a try. That was 15 years ago! They have helped me with lower back pain, carpal tunnel and knee problems. I can't say enough good things about these folks.
Dr. Schade at Active Life Chiropractic is the guiding force. She is open to new ideas and continuously explores new treatments for her patients.
At Active Life you get the whole package, massage, chiropractic care and other treatments!
Are you still at home?

Dr. Schade and her staff are wonderful with a very holistic approach to healing- they'll treat all of you. I originally visited her back in the early 90's at their old location to treat some pain I was having and was very impressed. I recently came back approaching 40 with some debilitating back spasms and committed to more regular visits for a short time. The practice has grown and it is amazing. She's given me my life back! No more spasms, I'm running, rock climbing, biking again and- thank heavens- cooking (yes, even that was giving me spasms). I wish I had done myself a favor and visited her more frequently early on.

My favorite treatment is Graston. I have had some chronic pain that I never thought I would be rid of it and it is totally gone. My whole life is truly better. An added benefit- I have never really liked floor work or indoor exercise but now religiously do the simple movements they taught me to strengthen my core and boy my abs are showing it. And it's so easy! Her staff made it fun.

It's not like other dr's office where you are just sitting there in one place- you move from treatment to treatment and people are very friendly. Often, someone would look in on me and give a little massage if I were waiting anywhere. I, personally, like it. It's kind of like going to happy hour.

If you are having pain you should go. The removal of the chronic pain I was in was worth it alone. If you do, I'll see you there!

After years of back pain, I found Dr. Schade and her staff. I have been a patient for 10+ years and never looked back. The damage to my back was extensive and now it is the best that it has ever been. There is only one way to explain my experience there: the doctors there are healers. Sounds strange but you will have to experience it to understand. They work with you to heal and then teach you to build muscle/flexibility to protect and prevent further damage. These folks see the bigger picture in your health. I hope they can do for you what they have done for me.

I have enjoyed running for years, but strained a leg muscle several months ago. I consulted a sports medicine doctor who didn't seem to know what was wrong and so sent me on to physical therapy. After going to physical therapy for a month without feeling better I turned to my friends for advice. Several of them recommended Active Life Chiropractic so I gave them a try. Not only has my leg healed, but they taught me ways to prevent it from happening again. I really like their comprehensive approach to treating me. In addition to working on my leg, my lower back, neck and shoulder pain, that I thought I was destined to live with, are gone. They always took time to explain to me their treatment approach and helped me understand a larger perspective on keeping my body healthy. The staff is extremely warm and caring, creating a wonderful atmosphere to heal. I am deeply appreciative to everyone at Active Life for helping me live pain free and for getting back to running around Austin.

I am 53 yrs young with a long history of bad posture but very active nonetheless. The years took their toll on my body and it became more painful to run and exercise as I got older. Even sitting in front of a computer was not comfortable. I had chronic back and neck pain. I went to many chiropractors over the last ten years. All did chiro adjustments in different ways and alleviated my pain, BUT none have made nearly the difference that Active Life has made in my life. I had read about the Graston technique from other sources and thought it would be beneficial for me and found that this clinic practiced this procedure. However, much to my amazement they also offered SO MUCH MORE! This clinic has a complete team of the finest professionals I have ever encountered, from the front desk to massage and physical therapy, and chiropractic. You walk away with so much more than chiro adjustments. This clinic is committed to your healing and health and has the most knowledgeable team that will provide whatever it takes to make that happen. In the three months that I have been going there, my posture and spine have made tremendous significant improvements from the physical therapy exercises, deep massage body work, chiro adjustments, Graston and other therapies. There is absolutely no reason for folks to accept growing old with aches and pains, when there are professionals committed to making bodies the best they can be at any age! Thank you Active Life for making me the best that I can be!

I recently visited Active Life Chiropractic after being gone for two years. What an amazing team! When I explained my issues to Rebbeca on the inital phone call, she got me in that day. Once I got there, I was taken back for therapy immediately and treated for an hour and 1/2. My medical history and chief complaints were thoroughly discussed, a physical exam, and 2 separate muscle relaxing techniques provided prior to the adjustments needed. I got immediate relief from Dr Schade's healing hands. After the adjustments, there was a laser therapy applied to aid in quick healing. I was treated by a few different team members throughout the appontment, most of them long term employees of Active Life Chiropractic. They are all very knowledgable and very imformative on all proceedures. It was nice going back and seeing so many familiar faces. Dr Shade definitely has the touch!

In May 2009 I was having a problem that my primary care physician passed me along to a specialist, who passed me along to another specialist. Specialist #1 wanted to give me lupron depot, a shot that would send me into menopause and then do surgery. Specialist #2 seemed to agree and wanted an extra surgeon. I did not think they'd done enough testing and diagnosis to come to such an extreme conclusion, I googled around and found that chiropractic is often used for this condition with good results. I have been to Active Life 4 times now, and my problem did not come back on its previous schedule, and I'm feeling good. The doctors and therapists at Active Life work with me to give me things I can do for myself (dietary changes and exercises) and also use various massage and chiropractic techniques & other tools in their clinic to help my body heal itself. No invasive chemicals or surgery. It's not a 'magic solution'--It's going to take a while to get to 100% healthy and I have to do my part with my eating choices and exercises a few times a day, but I am satisfied with my results so far and I ALWAYS feel better leaving the clinic than I did going in. I am a down to earth, somewhat skeptical, somewhat cynical person, but chiropractic WORKS for me. What a relief.

Every time I went in I was remembered and greeted wamly by the receptionists. Then I recieved care from at least three different professionals, including a chiropractor, massage therepist, and physical therepist, and spent time hooked up to one of their fancy machines. I was never in there for less than 1.5 hours! I loved how they integrate treatment with prevention elements like nuttition and posture, and they really worked with me to find a way to fit my schedule and insurance difficulties. And its far from your normal steryl doctor's office environment, they have beautifle art displays and the staff are casual and joke with each other. I would highly reccomend them for anyone with any sort of health problem and I hope the rest of the healthcare industry follows their example.

I would like to say how great my results have been to your new treatment addition. Dr. Nick and his technical marvel have been just wonderful. After nine months with another chiropractor and six months with therapy and adjustments, it only took a couple of months of sublaxation for me to be pain free. I have complete range of mobility and feel great. The treatment itself is amazing and so comfortable. I'm usually snoring by the end. Dr. Nick has been so professional and thorough as well. His explanations of the treatment and its benefits were just perfect. I would heartily recommend this treatment to anyone with persistent back pain caused by compressed disks.

You, of course, have my permission to use this statement in any way you like. Thanks.

Dr. Schade and everyone at Active Life make every visit a good one. Rebecca manages the front desk with efficiency and friendliness. Dr. Shade is a skilled healer with a variety of tools at her service, including Graston, the roller table, heat therapy, massage and more I can't remember. She examines each person then treats your body on that day. She pays attention to every detail and makes sure that each person walks out of there feeling better than when they came in. i can't recommend Active Life highly enough. Dr. Schade saved my back after a car accident that caused me severe whiplash, and she has also worked on various parts of my body to make everything better as I need it.

From the first time I called for an appointment, Active Life Chiropractic has exceeded my expectations. I have been plagued with severe headaches for several years and have taken numerous medications with very little relief. When I called to make an appointment, I was greeted with friendliness and professionalism. I was able to see Dr. Schade the very same day. Dr. Schade was very encouraging and, at my request, gave me an adjustment at my first visit. When I left there I knew I had made a decision that would change my life for the better. I was right. Over the first several weeks, my condition improved dramatically. After almost three months, I continue to improve. I am now on a 'maintenance plan' where I go in once every three weeks for treatment. I feel better than I have felt in a very long time. If you have chronic pain, you should give Active Life a call!

I went to ALC with little hope of really getting well, I had been through a mirage of test and doctors.After one visit I was hopeful.After my second visit with Dr.Lara I was AMAZED !!! I felt better than I had in over a year.I had almost given up trail riding. Now I'm back to riding my mules,working on the ranch and even put in a garden this week.
The staff is professional & friendly. If your tired of being in pain ( it's depressing) don't wait any longer. I have heard back from people I referred and they are as delighted as I am.
My pain is gone, my balance is back and I'm LIVING LIFE again, you can too !!!
See ya on the trail, Rhonda

When I came into ALC, I was hunched over with extreme (!!!) neck and back pain. To be honest, I was skeptical and a little fearful of chiropractic care - all the wrenching and jarring of the bones...and I was hyper-sensitive to touch. After the first visit, I had some real relief (I was upright and moving slowly) and the hope that all would get better soon. After about 4-5 visits, I was able to resume my everyday activities, and after about 10 visits, I was upright and able to move freely and rapidly. I AM SOOOOO THANKFUL FOR EVERYONE AT ALC for both their expert skill and know-how to get me moving again soon, but even more for their constant kindness and professionalism. I was always welcomed with a compassionate smile and treated with kind hands and calming, up-to-date therapies. If you are a first-timer like I was, this is the place you want to be.

Pros: When you're in pain, compassion is what you need most. They've got it in spades!

Cons: Insurance only covered 20 visits per year.

I was reluctant to go to a chiropractor after a past experience, but I was in such pain, when my daughter in law mentioned Dr Lara, I made the appointment. The treatment with the activator is so new to me, I had no idea how it could help, but it made such a difference. Each visit I get better and better and now I am going to continue my visits so I can avoid lapsing back to the severe pain .

Several members of my family now go to Active Life for care and I have already referred my friends to Dr.Lara and will continue to do so.

The entire experience at Active Life, the reception, the treatments the therapy, and the caring have made me a true believer in chiropractic care!

For well over a decade I've turned to Dr. Schade for a variety of problems (e.g. rotator cuff injury, fractured tailbone, whiplash, twisted knee, pinched nerve, etc.). Not only do I feel better upon leaving, but I've found the recovery period is faster and more effective compared to other types of treatment I've tried and other practitioners I've seen. I also call upon her when it feels as though I need a general-maintenance adjustment; I always emerge feeling refreshed and "unlocked"...taller too! What's more, I continually receive compliments about sitting "so nice and straight". I can assure you this is not due to genetics or concerted effort, rather a corrected and sturdy spine. In utilizing various techniques and services, practitioners at Active Life Chiropractic Center are able to treat patients' immediate ailment(s) as well as attend to the process of whole-body healing. All who work there are genuinely personable and interested in patients' well-being.

I have been going to Active Life Chiropractic Clinic for 5 weeks now. I came in with GI problems that I have suffered with every day since I was 19. I am 33 now. I assumed I would be doing the food sensitivity testing and the vitamin deficiency testing. To my surprise Dr. Schade recommended chiropractic adjustments as well. She told me she thought she could help me feel better. Now 5 weeks later I can tell you she was right. Within days of my first adjustment my GI problems stopped. I feel normal for the first time in 14 years. Dr. Schade, Rachel, Chris, Levi, Jenifer, Michael, and the rest of the staff at Active Life are more then nice and more then professional. I always feel better after an appointment then before. I highly recommend Active Life to anyone in need.

She told me she thought she could help me feel better. Now 5 weeks later I can tell you she was right. Within days of my first adjustment my GI problems stopped. I feel normal for the first time in 14 years. Dr. Schade, Rachel, Chris, Levi, Jenifer, Michael, and the rest of the staff at Active Life are more then nice and more then professional. I always feel better after an appointment then before. I highly recommend Active Life to anyone in need.

Pros: Very Nice, Service works.

Totally Awesome. I had siactic pain and muscle pain in my neck/upper back. Now, I feel terrific! I didn't know I could feel this great! I also didnt know I had a choice between manual adjustment (the back popping I'm familiar with) or the instruments, and Dr. Schade told me to communicate with them on my preference. Super sweet staff, geniunely concerned with your well being. Respectful, very important when someone is rubbing your bare butt with their hands. I don't like to think about how my body felt Pre-Active Life. I am a new woman! I can't believe I had almost reseigned myself to a life with pain, and that I could have missed out on how wonderful my body feels.

I am a 52 year-old child psychologist. I ruptured my right achilles tendon playing basketball with the neighor kids 5 1/2 years ago. I've had almost constant pain ever since due to complications that caused an unusual amount of scar tissue. I've been in physical therapy three times for a total of 12+ months; had a lot of deep tissue massage; and acupuncture. These interventions have helped temporarily but the pain comes back and makes it hard for me to work at a desk or drive. Two orthopedics have told me my only remaining option is more surgery but they are not optimistic about outcome. I learned about the Graston Technique from a magazine article. I live in San Antonio, and Active Life Chiropractic Clinic in Austin was the closest provider of that treatment. I've made the drive from San Antonio to Austin for 8 Graston sessions. I had immediate improvement in pain reduction after the first session and it has been sustained. I have almost no pain and stiffness now and I'm optimistic I'll continue to see improvement.. I used to take a lot of ibuprofen and naproxen and now I don't need it. I am very grateful to Dr. Schade for improving my qualty of life. She and her staff really care about helping people feel and live better. I am very glad I learned about the Graston Technique and found Active Life Chiropractic Clinic. I have recommended both to several coworkers, family and friends.

Active Life is AWESOME!! This is the first chiropractor that REALLY relieved my symptoms by correcting my original problem. I originally went in to see them due to a rear-end collision I sustained -- I was back to better in no time. The entire staff is great. They even have a special therapist there named Victor who is key in helping your body exercise new muscles to break old patterns of illness. Finally, I have to second another poster about Chris -- he is the *BEST* at what he does -- his massage is amazing and everytime I left there I felt like I had spent the day at the spa. The first time he gave me a massage I almost cried it was so good. They also have a great, caring front desk that really works with you to get well. This is honestly the first time I can say that I've ever looked forward to going to a chiropractor. My treatment is complete now (unlike other chiros who milk your injury forever) and I can say I still feel amazing. I am planning now to set up some maintenance visits so I can stay on the right track...Well done!!

After only one visit to Active Life I felt better than I've felt in 5 years. The staff is friendly, caring, and informative. I can't believe that I didn't do this sooner. I've tried everything to ease my constant neck and back pain but until now, nothing has worked. I was recommend to ACTIVE LIFE and I too will recommend their services to others. If they can do even a fraction of what they did for me for anyone else, its well worth the affordable price : )

I love these guys and gals! The entire staff at ALC is super knowledgeable, energetic, fun, and caring. I not only feel better physically after every visit, but I have fun too. They have helped me recover from a serious shoulder injury and also help me maintain overall health and wellbeing in all areas of my life. The staff has a great rapport with each other which translates to a great team of highly skilled and knowledgeable folks who are able and willing to capitalize on their individual specialties to their patients' maximum benefit. I highly recommend ALC for chiropractic care, physical therapy, food sensitivity, and massage. And they take insurance, too.

Just to be clear, until recently, I've never had back pain, a back injury or even a twinge. Then it finally happened. After kids, time and weight gain, I injured my back at home. At first, I sought treatment from my family doctor. With medication and time, the back pain was resolved, but then I was left with searing pain in my leg. My doctor referred me to another physician who, to my horror, immediately started talking back surgery. I work in a field where I get to see reports on people who have this problem and to be sure, it was not for me. I left that doctor and knew there had to be an alternative, I simply had not injured myself that badly. I had very little experience with chiropractic and was even a bit skeptical. I realized my options other than surgery were slim and made the decision to seek chiropractic care. And that is when a friend referred to me Active Life. I called and they got me in quickly. My first visit was tense, I had no idea what to expect. I had images of popping sounds and pretzel like positions! But after meeting Dr. Schade, my anxiety eased and I felt I was in the hands of a capable medical professional. She was relieved as much as I when she debunked the last physician's opinion and determined that physical therapy would be the solution. The first visit relieved my discomfort by 50%. She estimated I would need about two weeks of PT and then exercise therapy. What? No drawn out course of treatment? No hundreds of dollars of supplements? Nope! Just treatment for what is needed! And now at visit #4, my pain is greatly reduced. I still have some time to go and I'm following orders, but I forsee being back to my old active self again. I've referred Dr. Schade to several friends and hope they can bypass their own reservations and give it a try. Thank you Active Life Chiropractic, thank you to all the doctors AND staff for all of their TLC!!!

Pros: Professional staff, familiar with insurance, warm homelike setting in a beautiful Craftsmen home.

Cons: Finding the parking is a little difficult if you don't pay attention to the signs!

I started to go to ALC almost 4 years ago suffering from some severe back pain. It's a decision I've never regretted. Within a few months I was pain free. Now I go for regular alignment (and a free chair massage Friday nights). I've met with a physical therapist ot learn exercises to strengthen my spine and keep me feeling fit and healthy. When I started feeling what felt like carpal tunnel, I immediately went in and dealt with it before it could get any worse. And just recently, I had the Immuno 1 Bloodprint done as I had come to a plateau in my weight loss. Within days of removing reactive foods from my diet, the weight started to come off again (10 lbs in the first 6 weeks). It has made great improvements in my energy levels and my overall feelings of wellbeing. I have recommended ALC any time someone asks me about finding a chiropractor, and now I recommend it ever time I get a compliment about the way I look and feel.

I have been going to Dr. Schade for several years and she has done wonders for me. She has helped me in so many ways and I feel so much better since I have been under her care. Everyone on her staff is so caring. Rebecca is such a help - I really admire her professional yet friendly demeanor. Chris is amazing - he is very very good at his profession. Dr. Schade is so calm as she works her wonders on your body. I always feel better after a session at Active Life and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Going to Active Life is the best thing I ever did. This is not a quick fix - it?s a total body overhaul. My bone alignment was adjusted, muscle and tendons were relaxed and worked to help accommodate these changes and then there were exercises to help me correct the way I carry my body. All of the doctors have a slightly different technique but all are extremely beneficial. This was my first chiropractic experience and it has been more than I could have ever expected. The doctors at Active Life have almost completely eradicated the life long pain I have been living with. I also had a Spectra Cell and Immuno 1 Bloodpring? test. Those results have improved my overall well being drastically. My seasonal allergies, unexplained head aches and chronic fatigue are gone. Plus I shed a few pounds. The staff there is great starting with Rebecca when you walk in the door. All the massage and PT work is fantastic but Chris has that special touch. I appreciate the professionalism, great staff attitude, and efficiency that is maintained in a very relaxed and casual atmosphere.

A friend recommended Active Life after I was complaining about chronic back pain. I started getting treatments at Active Life for my back and neck and realized that they were able to help me with so much more. After telling them about my chronic stomach problems, headaches and lack of energy, Dr. Schade recommended that I take the Immuno 1 Bloodprint? test to see if I was sensitive to any specific foods. My list was very long and I decided to start the journey to feeling better by moving forward with the program. I had to give up a lot of my favorite foods for a while (some forever, and some continuing only in moderation), but after a few weeks I felt a huge difference. Not only did my stomach problems go away completely, my headaches decreased by about 90% and I have so much energy I don't know what to do with it! I would recommend this test to anyone, regardless if they are having health problems or not. It seems that just about anyone would benefit to feeling even better then they already do. I also want to say that everyone at Active Life has been so incredibly helpful and comforting and I would recommend them for any of the treatments that they offer

I have been going to ALC for a few years now and seriously look forward to going every week. Rebecca does such a fantastic job of running the office, Allison is the friendliest person in the world from the minute you walk through the door, all the doctors have their own specialty and no one is better than the other. All of them are extremely good at what they do, professional and truly do care about your care. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and showing improvement. I can't rave enough about this office...except for one very important detail. Chris, the massage therapist can do magic, really... Don't let his sweet and cheeful personality mislead you- this guy is seriously good at what he does. I have had tons of massages and nothing even comes close. He makes you feel so much better, one session, you'll be addicted! Heaven resides at 1315 W 6th St.

I first came to Active Life 3 weeks ago. It was difficult to walk up the stairsI had never been to a chiropractor before even though I've had several very painful episodes a year (for years & years & years!) So now I'm adjusted & pain-free and have learned some new tricks to get me strong & keep me young at 56 years old - I mean young. My posture is better & my attitude is better. I love coming here - everyone is so warm and relaxed! Thanks to the whole bunch of you!

My whole family relies on Dr. Schade and Dr. Mason for our chiropractic needs: my husband for chronic pain, my mother for minor injuries, my children for sports injuries - and me, for general well-being. The staff provides professional and compassionate service and attention. They are the first recommendation I give for health care.
