I have been to many chiropractors over the years.  Dr. Pike at first seemed capable and professional. His neck adjustment technique is awful.  He calls it a modified "occipital lift".  He turns you head while laying on your stomach one way and jerks your head towards him.  He repeats the violent movement with the head turned the other way.  I have never experienced a rougher technique in my life.  I too feel like he is in it for the money.  I would not see him.  In my opinion the neck is delicate and needs to be adjusted carefully.

Dr. Pike initially seemed to be a good choice for a doctor.  After several visits, I decided to stop going to his office because of the inappropriate comments that he was making.  He made me feel very uncomfortable and after I mentioned it, he acted in a way that I can only describe as 'nasty'.  I would not recommend this doctor- at least for women who go to the doctor for medical reasons, not to be hit on.

WORST CHIROPRACTOR... EVER!!!

WORST CHIROPRACTOR- EVER!!!!
I have been visiting chiropractors since I was injured nearly 15 years ago.  I recently moved to Redding and didn't have a referral to a chiropractor, so I looked in the phone book for the first office that sounded nice (not a good idea).  I went to Dr. Pike for about 4 months and I regret that I ever called his office.  I thought that the experience would be like my welcome to the office- warm and friendly- which it initially was. Dr. Pike, at that time, insisted that I NEEDED 5 treatments a week to address my back problem(I later heard from other past patients that this is a common recommendation, leading me to believe that these adjustments might have been more necessary for Dr. Pike's wallet than my back).  Of all of the other chiropractors I have visited, NONE said I needed treatment more that 2x per week.  After one particularly violent adjustment, I commented that I was a bit sore and might need a break for a couple of days.  Dr. Pike asked me to go into his office.  I didn't understand why, but went.  He came in about 20 minutes later and closed the door.  I then received a lecture for (no exaggeration, I checked my phone) 27 minutes about letting someone medically educated and qualified be in charge of my chiropractic care.  He told me basically it was not my decision to tell him that I needed a break from adjustments for a couple of days, that I was compromising all of the progress he had made.  I was shocked.  He followed up by telling me about his degrees on the wall and even asked me if I went to medical school (I did not).  He insulted me about 4 different ways before the lecture was finished.  
I would NEVER EVER go to this "doctor" again.  I have since found an excellent chiropractor in Redding.
