August 29, 2019:
The time has finally come for me to retire from my Osteopathic Practice after 40 years. It has been my pleasure to serve our community of Manchester and surrounding towns. It has passed so quickly. I'll be leaving my practice at the end of September with many mixed emotions. I would like to thank all of you for giving me the opportunity to have such a fine career, and meeting so many great people. I have watched many families in the area grow and have shared heartaches and joy with many of you.
I will undoubtedly miss many aspects of a clinical practice, but the time has come for me to move on. My efforts to find a physician replacement will continue and hopefully be successful. In the meantime you may contact your primary care physician to see who is capable of taking on a new patient for this area of expertise.
With many thanks to all of you who have been my patients.

Dear Dr. Kirmes:
I want to let you know that your adjustments and physical conditioning have given me freedom from the persistent back problems that plagued me for 30 years. I tried various chiropractors over the years. But, they only provided temporary relief. Your adjustments held. The back muscle conditioning on the MedX machine built the strength needed to live daily life, without fear of back spasms.
I cannot thank you enough for the physical confidence you have restored. You have truly changed my life.
I first began seeing Dr. Kirmes in fall of 2012. At the time, I had been suffering with lower back pain and sciatica symptoms for many months. My range of movement and flexibility were terrible. Had a very difficult time moving around, and felt decades older than my actual age. I could not remain in a sitting position for any length of time without extreme discomfort, and the action of standing upright from a sitting position was incredibly painful. However, the most painful activity was getting out of bed in the morning. I suffered through this movement every morning, and it was agonizing.
I did not have any success with more "traditional" treatments. I tried both heavy doses of prescription strength anti-inflammatory medication and "traditional" physical therapy. I stayed with both treatments for the recommended periods of time. Neither produced any significant improvement.
My friends and family commented that my condition was clearly not improving. Some of them recommended that I speak with a surgeon, and evaluate that option. Several others recommended that I seek treatment from Dr. Kirmes before exploring the option of surgery.
I am immensely grateful that I took their advice. My treatment with Dr. Kirmes began with back adjustment. However, and most importantly to me, the rest of my treatment involved rehabilitation using his Med-X system. I used to system twice a week.
The results were incredible and came very quickly. I saw increased range of movement immediately. Within weeks, I regained normal range of movement and flexibility. My pain also began to diminish immediately. Every week, my pain levels continued to drop. Within a few months, I experienced zero pain during any activity.
Because of the success, I no longer need to use the Med-X system twice a week. However, I still use the system once a month, to prevent a future injury.
I cannot stress enough how pleased I am with the results from Dr. Kirmes' treatment. I recommend his medical practice and Med-X system to all of my family and friends with back or neck issues.
Thank you Dr. Kirmes!

Dear Dr. Kirmes,
Thank you for giving me my life back. For the first time in years I don’t have to take pain pills for back pain. Before completing the MedX therapy I was depressed because everything I did caused pain - sitting, standing, bending, and walking. I felt useless; I had to stop doing everything I loved to do. For years I spent a lot of money on MRIs, physical therapy, and medicine, none of which help in any way. Thanks to MedX, today I’m back to waking two miles a day and living a normal life. What’s so incredible is that I noticed that my pain started to subside from the first MedX visit. It was the simplest, most painless procedure I have ever experienced, and the results were miraculous.
