Patient Chiropractic Low Back Pain, Stress, Weight Loss Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

2004_Spring_flowers

I began my healing journey about one year before discovering the Dubners. After my second child, my daughter, was born, I spiraled into depression and anxiety. I had buried my memories of trauma from sexual abuse as a young teen by a teacher, but the emotional wall I had built was finally beginning to crack under the pressure of having a second baby. Every diaper change sent me into a flashback, I had visions of my teacher coming back to stalk me, and I frequently had panic attacks that I was poisoning myself with food.

On my thirtieth birthday, I decided to commit myself to healing.  I found a psychologist and psychiatrist and found out that I was experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I attended individual therapy.  I found a month-long anxiety and depression support group, and a 3-month long PTSD support group. I began regular yoga and mindfulness practices. Still I wasn’t feeling better, and I finally took my doctor’s suggestion to begin antidepressants.

Zoloft helped numb the pain I was feeling, and it did buffer me a little from the terrible shock of my father’s untimely death, hit by a car while crossing the street.  As I was grieving, the months dragged on.

I still wasn’t feeling that elusive state of wellness that I thought might theoretically exist.  My body was getting sluggish and I had to eat cookies and bars of chocolate each day to get through the hours. The thought of removing sugar from my diet sent me into a panic. What’s more, my back began to hurt in such a crippling way that I could barely get in and out of bed, much less pick up or play with my kids.  Desperate for a solution, I heard a trusted friend mention the Dubner’s, and I called within the next thirty minutes to make my first appointment.

Over the last several months, I have had so many breakthroughs and miracles with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I can’t believe it.  With Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic techniques, my back pain is almost gone and I feel light and loose on my feet in a way that I haven’t remembered feeling since childhood.  The elimination diet was a challenge, but with Dr. Sharon’s support I made it through, and pounds have fallen off my body effortlessly and I never needed to count calories or go to sleep hungry.

I credit a lot to Dr. Sharon’s acupressure techniques, because my psychiatrist and I decided that I was doing so well I could go off Zoloft, and as a result of doing so I feel better and more authentic than I could have imagined.  Finally, working with Dr. Sharon with the Bach Flowers has been amazingly healing for me.  I have been on a long road to health, and perhaps all of the steps I took were necessary to chip away at these old walls, but I feel like the progress in my mental and emotional well-being that I have made with Dr. Sharon is at least, if not more, effective as many of the psychological methods I have used.

I have brought my children to the Dubner’s and I recommend their practice to every friend I talk to.  I am amazed at how Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen’s practice has helped me to heal, trust myself, and become whole again.

Thank you Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen!

Sunnyvale Patient,Neck Pain, Low Back Pain, Weight Loss, Stress, Fatigue, Improved Posture and Range of Motion Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

When I first met the Dubners, I had been injured in a severe sledding incident. I was in pain every day. My entire spine was whiplashed. There was no healthy curve in my neck, which caused my scoliosis to progress. I was always cold. I was also overweight by about twenty pounds. I had intense mood swings and emotional upsets which I felt completely helpless about. I knew I needed to find balance both physically and emotionally.

I’ve been to all of the Dubners free health lectures, and I’ve learned so much about natural health. The daily pain I had been living with for years is almost nonexistent – unless I eat processed sugars. I had no idea how much eating processed food caused pain in my body until I was educated by the Dubners. I committed to eating naturally, the way they taught me. I did their two-week Health Rejuvenation Food Plan when I started care. After about three weeks the extra pounds and inches started falling off. I went from a size 14 to a size 4, which I’ve easily maintained for 3 years now! In addition to the weight loss, I’ve noticed that the shape of my body has changed with my new, improved posture. I get up earlier in the morning than before, feeling awake, energetic and positive. I feel more like myself – or the best version of myself.

Dr. Sharon’s gentle acupressure treatments helped lessen the residual effects of the birth control and anti-depressant chemicals I had put in my body long ago. This improved how I felt tremendously. Also, Dr. Sharon treated me for my cold sensitivity and now I am able to tolerate cooler temperatures. The emotional treatments I received from Dr. Sharon have helped as well. Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic adjustments have restored my range of motion and my body’s natural state of balance. My spine is the healthiest it’s ever been.  I’m better able to adapt to stress now. I feel more present and ‘in my body’. The work is so gentle, yet profound. It has truly been a blessing to be cared for and also to be taught how to care for myself. Thank you, Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon, for all of your support on my healing journey.

Patient from Santa Clara: Thyroid, Fatigue, Stress, Back Pain, Menopause, Night Sweats, Leg Pain and Posture Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractic

Monday, June 11th, 2012

I originally came to the Dubners with neck and back pain issues related to poor posture. I had seen a physical therapist a couple years ago who told me my posture was causing pinched nerves. I went to a traditional chiropractor for almost a year after that with discouraging results – I was in more pain, and had developed a limp when walking. With nothing seeming to work, I became anxious and depressed, and was prescribed medications to treat those symptoms.
Since becoming a patient at Dubner Chiropractic, I’ve had so many improvements which have brought me a tremendous boost of satisfaction. My posture has improved; the limp is gone. I’m no longer on medications for anxiety and depression. I find it easier to be present, energetic and happy. I have had bowel and urinary flow improvements. I’m not cold even though I no longer have a Thyroid. I sleep much better, without the night sweats I had before. I’m more in touch with my body’s needs. I love myself and others even more than before. I finally have the life I’ve been wanting. Coming to Dubner Chiropractic has been good for me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The staff is genuinely happy to see me and truly cares for me. I love coming to the office, and I tell people about it all the time! I’m so excited to be alive!

Chiropractic Patient from Cupertino: Arthritis, Hand Pain, Leg Pain, Back Pain Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

What brought me to Dubner Chiropractic was the extreme pain in my hands, legs, and most of my joints due to my rheumatoid arthritis. It got to the point where it was so severe in the winter time, I could not go outside. I went to see a doctor who specialized in rheumatoid arthritis and he prescribed me numerous heavy drugs with tons of side affects. I was taking up to 30 pills a day. I wanted to stop taking the drugs so it would not cause any permanent damage to my body. After 3 months of care with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, my pain is almost completely gone, and I am no longer on any medications. My emotional state is much more balanced, and I no longer have to stress about the pain I was having. I was so amazed when the pain went away; I have so much more energy and am happier all around. The doctors are so loving and caring with their patients; I would definitely recommend this care to everyone.

Chiropractic Patient: Leg Pain and Stress Success Stories at Cupertino Chiropractor

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

 

The extreme pain I was experiencing in my left leg is what led me to Dubner Chiropractic.  I found that as my stress intensified so did the pain.  The pain had actually affected me so much that I was unable to walkcomfortably.  I was limping.  I decided not to take the pain killer prescribed by my physician but let the healing take place through the adjustments.  I followed Dr. Allen’s treatment plan.

Within two weeks of treatment the pain in my leg completely disappeared.  It felt like a miracle.  In addition I noticed some other side affects.  I noticed I had much more clarity and an increase in my efficiency in my multi-tasking and management of my activities and different roles.

I have also experienced a release of emotions and memories.  I find myself laughing more and even recalling memories of long ago.  This has been therapeutic.

I consider the chiropractic care that I am receiving an essential part of my weekly routine.  It helps me perform at an optimum state both physically and mentally in both personal and professional capacities.

I have and continue to recommend Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s healing touch.

I originally started coming to Dubner Chiropractic in 2004 to alleviate hip pain, which Dr. Allen successfully treated.  One of the motivating reasons for correcting my hip problem was that we were planning on having children in the future. (more…)
