Found relief and making good progress with Dr. Perinno. After a year of unanswered questions to all of my symptoms everywhere else, I finally made it to his office. He is very thorough and easy to talk to, a wealth of knowledge in his field. Pat is sweet and accommodating with scheduling and corresponding. I’m very grateful that they are here to service our community. Mahalo Nui.
I highly recommend HANCOH! I began my journey only 5 weeks ago and the results are incredible! I feel better and I am standing straighter than I have in years! Thank you to Dr. Kevin Perrino and Pat for providing this invaluable service to our community! And thank you to my employer Kona Coast Vacations for making the wise decision to partner with this group for extended care for our Ohana of employees!
I give my highest recommendation to Dr. Perrino and his office. From his evaluation to treatment, he is the best chiropractor I have been to. He is truly concerned about each of his patients and spends considerable time making an individual treatment plan.
My ND recommended Dr. Perrino at the Head and Neck Center of Hawaii located in downtown Kona. She said he has a new form of practice. Dr. Perrino and his lovely wife Pat run the business. There are so many wonderful things I want to say about the two of them. I’ll try not to write a book. First off is the incredible amount of time, detail and sincere care they took with me on my first appointment to determine where my axes was out. Spot on examination and X-ray determined exactly where the silent gentle touching machine needed to go when he did the adjustment. Laying down on my side he positioned by head and neck in a certain way then put the pointer on the machine to the exact spot at the base of my skull. All I heard was a “click” and it was done. I felt nothing. Painless. Magical.
In the past with the old technique done by my previous DC’s over the years the adjustments held maybe a few days or week. Then my axes would be out again, which meant weekly trips to the Chiropractor.
This new revolutionary device and technique is allowing me and my partner to hold for weeks even months depending on the person meaning less times to the Chiropractor, money saved and feeling better longer.
Dr. Perrino didn’t stop there, he noticed that my migraines were also stemming from trigger points at the bottom of my skull down my shoulders. When I’d get a migraine, he found my axes was still holding and spent time doing Trigger Point Pressure at the base of my skull and shoulder points. It helped relieve the pain sometimes completely. He then determined perhaps I needed Trigger Point Injection Shots of some type. Brilliant. This not being his specialty he asked his wife to call around to other physicians to see if they did it and would give me a consult. They found an ND in town Dr. Michael Hughes who specializes in just that! Dr. Hughes indeed agreed that I needed Trigger Point Injections and gave me PRP shot, Plasma Replacement Therapy using my own bodies plasma. Well it worked! After months and months of severe agony between Dr. Perrino’s wonderful adjustments only when I need them on this incredible new gentle machine and his brilliant intuitive insight I was able to find the solutions I needed for a complex pain. I’m in heaven.
I also want to tell you that Pat who handles all the administrative work goes above and beyond to work with your insurance companies to get you any reimbursements you are owed. There have been times when I’d receive a personal phone call from Pat just checking up on how I was doing. I can’t say enough about Dr. Perrino and Pat. Thank you Dr. Perrino and Pat for coming to Kona. We needed you.
Trying to share all of the surprising changes that I’ve experienced since seeing Dr. Perrino is almost impossible.
It was a very slow recovery since a major car accident I’d had prior to seeing Dr. Perrino. The depressing realization of so many physical limitations had been creeping in as I realized my quality of life may never be the same. I was also concerned about my job and all the time that was needed to constantly take off in order to counter act the previous weeks work.
My first treatment seemed mild but as the day went on I knew I needed to lay down and rest to let my body process the subtle adjustment from earlier that day. I slept the deepest I had in months.
As each treatment progressed I came in with more and more good news. Different pains were disappearing and my range of motion and physical strength was returning. I was no longer in constant nagging pain, headachs were gone, I was sleeping more comfortably, and I could sustain my normal work load. I was also able to excersice again with out paying for it later.
Honestly there isn’t enough good things to say about head and neck center of Hawaii. I wish I knew about them right after my accident. I’m so grateful I found them and highly recommend Dr. Perrinos gentle skill and nurturing care. His technique is very different and doesn’t wrench your neck. With the skilled calculations he assesses from his X-rays I never once felt scared I’d be injured.
Go see them, it will change your life for the better!
I am a patient of Dr Kevin Perrino’s and would like to share that as an experienced Atlas Orthogonal patient, I can honestly say that he is an incredible find. I live on Maui and fly to Big Island for my appointments with him. I do not have insurance that covers & I still fly there to Big Island for treatments. Some insurance companies will re-imburse for you, but regardless, it’s worth finding a way to make this happen. Dr Kevin has a depth of understanding of the head & neck and the intricacies of Atlas Orthogonal work that few ever achieve!! I have been a bodyworker/massage therapist for over 30+ years and bodies are my world. Lucky are those that live on Big Island & don’t have to go to another island.. But for those that are off island, it is well worth your time & money.
You can go online and view Dr Kevin’s website or go to globalao.com and read what the technique involves and how it works with a variety of issues. I was a pedestrian hit by an accelerating car & I was born with double scoliosis which was seriously effected from the impact. Dr Kevin is assisting me to be able to function in every day life and allows me to work full time pain free..
Originally the traditional doctors said that i would never work again & would not be able to function properly. With Atlas Orthogonal work I can do both. My gratitude to the founder in Atlanta, GA, Dr Roy Sweat, and to Dr Kevin Perrino, Kailua-Kona, HI for assisting me to live with a quality in my life.
All you have to do, is to call the office and talk with Pat. She will assist you with appointment scheduling and answer all of your questions.
I was introduced to Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic in the early 1990’s. My endocrinologist, Dr Nicholas Gonzalez, referred me to Dr Roy Sweat in Atlanta Ga. I was reluctant as I didn’t understand exactly what it was or why I had to travel that far just to get adjusted.. BUT, I followed his advice and it was truly a life saver for me. In the years to follow I went to Atlanta to get my treatments from Dr Roy and then when I moved to Maui in 2004, I also flew to Petaluma California for my adjustments. This is one of those things that you just need to take the leap of faith and experience what it is. Because of my AO adjustments, I have been able to greatly reduce my neck, should, back pain, have much more energy & vitality and more range of motion in my joints. I was a pedestrian hit by an accelerating car in Jan 2009 and was told I would never work again or function properly. Atlas Orthogonal adjustments were my saving grace then & continue to be today. Since 2004 I have had to fly from Maui to the mainland to get my adjustments. I have also gone to Atlanta to the Advanced Atlas Orthogonal Seminars & addressed the group of doctors each time, begging for one of them to move to the islands. This type of Chiropractic work is the ONLY type I believe in. I have been a massage therapist for 30+ years and specialize in Myo-Neuro Fibril massage… Everything that happens in your body – everything!! is controlled by the nerves from the brain that go down the brain stem thru the spinal column, branching off the spinal column to supply nerve pathways for all functions. IF the Atlas (your first cervical C-1)or Axis (your second cervical C-2) are not in the proper alignment, your body will not function properly.
AO is truly life changing. Thru the years, I have referred hundreds of my clients to AO doctors and all have had incredible results. Their testimonies are shared with others and that’s how many have discovered this much needed treatment. I had an incredible gift from Dr Roy’s office when they called to tell me that Dr Kevin Perrino had opened an office on Big Island. I was beyond thrilled. I called and talked at length with Pat, his lovely wife and office manager, and booked the earliest appointment. I flew to Big Island to get adjusted myself & to verify the quality & integrity of Dr Perrino’s work. As in all fields, not all AO’s are created equal. I have a very difficult neck to adjust & am beyond particular on who I allow to work on it. Because of Dr Roy Sweat’s recommendation I took the leap of faith. I want everyone to know that this is the REAL DEAL. I’ve never written a yelp review before, but felt that it would be a way to get the word out quickly. Please pass this information on to your friends & family. Dr Perrino, not only was able to get the adjustment in, he did therapy on my back that was incredible. I felt like I had more blood flow to my brain which has been challenged since the accident. I was able to hold my head up without effort. I didn’t realize how much I had “dealt with” until the pain was diminished. My back muscles relaxed finally & the pain subsided. It was a miracle. Now I can fly to another island, get the best AO care possible and my clients can do the same.
While Dr Perrino has been a Chiropractor for many years, he has just moved his family to Big Island and set up his practice there. He has trained with the best & is continuing his education.. To me, this is the sign of dedicated Doctor. One that has mastered the techniques and still continues to study & learn.. I know many AO doctors and I can honestly say the Dr Perrino is one of a handful that I would allow to adjust me. It’s a blessing to have him in the islands. IF anyone has questions, I am willing to respond. Dr Perrino’s office has a website that explains that entire procedure and what to expect so I won’t go into those details on this posting.. Spread the word.. THERE IS AN INCREDIBLY GIFTED ATLAS ORTHOGONAL DR ON BIG ISLAND.. Mahalo for your time. I know this is a lengthily writing, but I want people to know how important this is for all of us here in the islands. If you live on Big Island, lucky you, as you are that much closer. If you live on a neighboring island, Pat will assist you in finding a great hotel close to the office and just know that it is worth the money & time to take care of your most valuable asset, your health. Many Blessings, Gina On Maui
