Sunnyvale Chiropractic Patient Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hand Pain, Knee Pain, Shoulder Pain, Feet Pain, Auto Immune Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017

In English:

In Spanish:

My symptoms started in December of 2016 and I was diagnosed in January by my medical doctor with Rheumatoid Arthritis. I had severe symptoms that left me barely able to walk, trouble using my hands, I could not sleep and had pain that radiated throughout my body and was especially bad in my shoulders, neck, knees and feet. My medical doctor gave me a prescription for a medication that would help with these symptoms. However, I did not want to take it as I had seen the effect it had on my sisters who also have Rheumatoid Arthritis and did not want to have that experience.

I was not sure what I was going to do since the pain was bad and I felt like I was out of options. It was at this point my son told me to go see the Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon as he knew they could help me. We had been patients seven years before. My son had been five years old at the time and he had remembered how great the help was that we received.

I am glad I listened to my son because in less than two months the pain in my shoulders, neck, hands, knees, and feet has greatly decreased. I am sleeping again which helps me have more energy to do regular activities. I am back to my day to day life and can cook, walk, and spend time with my family. I feel more positive, motivated, and better able to handle stress.

I have been surprised at how much better I have felt so quickly. Beyond just listening to the doctor’s recommendations and receiving treatments and following the Food Plan, I have learned how to make the best food choices for my body, which has helped to aid it in minimizing the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I feel as though my body is healing itself.

I am very grateful for Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon and the work they do. It has helped me be more conscious and take responsibility for my health and the choices I am making each day, especially when it comes to food. It can be a challenging process, but I know I am doing what is right for my body.

San Jose Patient Diabetes, Fibromyalgia, Weight Loss, Back Pain, Hand Pain, Sleep Problems, Sugar Cravings and Stress Success Story through Cupertino Chiropractor at Dubner Chiropractic

Monday, December 8th, 2014

I have been a patient of Dubner Chiropractic for about 2 months now. Before coming here I would take 50 units or more of insulin a day for a few years for my diabetes. I also have had a severe condition of fibromyalgia for the past 25+ years. I was on 8 different medications to help with pain, diabetes, blood pressure, kidney and cholesterol. I suffered from liver damage and stage 2 kidney disease. Prior to attending treatment with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I had seen a primary care physician and a beneficial chiropractor, but not much changed.

Immediately after coming to Dubner Chiropractic, I saw results. Within two weeks, I got off all of my insulin. I am off all of my other medications except one. My pain is virtually gone. Before, I experienced pain all over. Now I am capable of moving with great freedom and in addition, my sleep has improved. I have lost 27 pounds and 3 ½ inches at my waist since my first day here, and my blood sugar numbers are now in the 90’s with no medication. I also no longer have sugar cravings. Since being here, I have noticed that I have been much calmer, a lot happier, relieved, and more positive, and over all I feel better about myself.

With the combination of Dr. Sharon’s acupressure and Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic adjustments, I am now insulin free and I am happier with life itself. On top of their great work, the doctor’s emotional work, encouragement and support have definitely made the experiences I have had here worth continuing. I recommend and already have recommended these doctors to others. It will not only help symptoms go away, but it will save your life. I have tried a lot of things, but this is by far the most effective – even my medical doctors are supportive of it.

In addition to having one on one time with the doctors, their in-house health talks and lectures have brought me to understand more about what is good and what is bad for the human body. My dog, believe it or not, has also improved in health. Though most say not to, we feed our 11 year old dog from the table, and since my husband and I have changed our eating habits, our dog is getting happier and healthier with us. I am happy here. I feel good coming and feel better when I leave due to such great treatment and service.

San Mateo Patient: Neck Pain, Shoulder Pain, Arm Pain, Hand Pain, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Digestive Problems, Allergies, Fatigue Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013

When I first came to the Dubners, I had been suffering from terrible inflammation and debilitating chronic pain all over my upper body: neck, shoulders, wrists, and joints of the fingers. My red blood count was low (anemia), and I would feel cold all over. Doctors had diagnosed it about 6 months earlier as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Until that point in my life, I had been mostly healthy, and had tremendous confidence in the western medical system. After seeing several expert doctors from UCSF, PAMF, etc., the only thing I learned was that I would have this condition for the rest of my life, and they might be able to control it by administering various cocktails of drugs (which sounded like poisons to me based on their side effects). I did a lot of reading, and increasingly it became clear to me that medicine was mostly flying blind (for example, one of the drugs they prescribed was Plaquenil, which was originally an anti-malaria drug until someone discovered that it helped some patients with RA). Or, with some of the newer drugs (biologics), they were trying to address the symptoms (trying to bring immune factors in blood into a normal range), rather than the cause (why were those immune factors off-kilter in the first place?). In computer science (in which I hold a PhD), we call such band aid solutions “hacks”, and they are almost always a terrible way to fix a problem. My confidence in the system was shattered; I refused to take the drugs, and sought out other approaches. I went on a water-only fast, changed my diet, and was already noticing small improvements; this was when I heard the Dubners talk at a bookstore and decided to give their approach a try. I was highly skeptical of their approach at first, but decided to stick to it, and am so glad I did. Not only have I been completely cured of RA, but several other conditions I had also resolved themselves: digestion problems, allergies, fatigue, etc. What I’ve come to realize is that what you eat and how you live your life is of paramount importance to maintaining your health, and the Dubners can guide you along the right path which is specific to you as an individual. I am now also a believer in the network chiropractic idea that disturbances to the nerves emanating from the spine can cause disease. Disease can also be caused by the subconscious brain not doing the right thing: this would explain why the placebo effect is so strong for so many diseases. After all, most computer bugs end up being problems with the software and very rarely with the hardware, so why would the same not apply to the human body? So it’s important for the subconscious brain to “think” that everything is going right with the body, and for that to happen, it helps to have a “healer” rather than a “doctor”: someone who works with you, is interested in you, and cares for you. I have no doubt that the Dubners are amongst the best healers out there, and I’ve been so lucky to have found them.

San Jose Chiropractic Knee Pain, Ankle Pain, Elbow Pain, Wrist Pain, Finger Pain, Arm Pain, and Fatigue Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractor

Monday, November 5th, 2012

 

When I first began seeing Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon, I had constant pain in my joints and muscles which included my knee, ankle, elbow, wrist, fingers, arm and many other areas. These symptoms had bothered me for years. I was not able to squeeze my hand tightly and even had difficulties climbing up the stairs. On top of that, I was always feeling fatigued throughout the day. Within 2 months of seeing the doctors, my joint and muscle symptoms had improved. I can finally raise my leg and climb up the stairs without any problem. My fingers finally can touch my palm without pain. Since going on the food diet for 2 weeks, I feel calmer mentally and my fatigue has improved. By knowing how to choose the best food for myself, I am getting healthier by losing weight from 157 lbs. to 147 lbs.! I have more energy now and I am pleased with the results that I have received at the Dubner Family Chiropractic Center.

Thanks Dr. Allen and Dr.  Sharon!

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.

Gail Sanchez: Cupertino chiropractic fibromyalgia, arm/hand and carpal tunnel solution

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

 I have now been seeing the Dubners for about 7 months and I am so happy that I made the decision to make my health a number one priority. I had suffered with many symptoms relating to Fibromyalgia for at least 2 years. I had limited mobility and stamina, I couldn’t do anything that I enjoyed doing; just functioning through the day was enough! The most fantastic of my changes is I have use of my thumb again and my reach has improved, I can now scratch my back!!! I also no longer have to wear a wrist brace. My mobility has increased in my neck; I can look over my shoulder, something that I couldn’t previously do! My body is learning to work right again!! I feel a wonderful sense of achievement in my health and I owe that to the Dubners gentle adjustment technique. I have done something just for me, for my health. The results are fantastic and I feel so much better about life!

Andrea Wieland: Chiropractic neck pain, arm/hand pain and sciatica Cupertino success story

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

Before coming to the Dubners, I had developed a lot of neck pain from an injury. I had pain down my arm and sciatic pain. I also got sick all the time and would spend 3 weeks to a month in bed every winter with the flu and colds. Physical therapy, anti-inflammatory drugs, muscle relaxants and sedatives from the medical Doctors did not improve my symptoms. After the first couple of adjustment sessions with the Dubners, I felt an ease in my body I haven’t had for a long time. Since then my arm and sciatic pain are gone. Instead of being constantly sick with flu’s and colds this winter, I was hardly sick and didn’t take any antibiotics. I’ve now also said goodbye to muscle relaxants and painkillers! Their office is a positive experience and no matter what your problem, I feel you can benefit greatly from their care.

Rachel Bakker: Hand numbness, ovary pain Cupertino chiropractic success

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I have been going to the Dubners since 1994. I first came to the office because I started experiencing numbness in my hands. It took only six months of treatment to be rid of the numbness. It has now been 10 years and the numbness has never returned. In 2004, I began to experience pain in my right ovary and the right side of my lower back. It ws extremely painful and would come and go. I couldn’t sit down for long periods of time. My medical doctor gave me an ovarian ultrasound and a colonoscopy, but found nothing to explain the pain. Within 2 weeks of Chiropractic treatment, the pain in my ovary and lower back is now 95% gone. I always look forward to my visits at Dubner Chiropractic Center. The staff is so friendly and the office has such a positive atmosphere.

Lucy Kaminski: Chiropractic Cupertino neck pain, shoulder pain and hand pain success

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I attended a talk that the Doctor Dubners did at East West Bookstore and decided to come and see them for a muscle knot in my neck the size of a golf ball, plus pain in my neck, shoulders, arms, and hands due to a work injury two years earlier. I had seen a physical therapist, a regular chiropractor, did myofacial massage, ultra-sound therapy, and electrotherapy. I took anti-inflammation medication, muscle relaxers, and pain killers -with no results. It has been a year now since I’ve come to see the Dubners and “suffering” is no longer a part of life. Within 3 days of starting treatment, the muscle knot decreased and is now almost gone. The pain in my neck, shoulders, arms, and hands hardly bothers me. I sleep better and feel less mental stress. The office and staff are “WONDERFUL” and I look forward to my office visits!

Mia Begine: Patient from Santa Clara neck pain, arm pain, ringing ears, hot flashes and plantar fascitis Cupertino chiropractic success stories

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I was a basket case when I first came to Dubner Family Chiropractic.  I was suffering with plantar fascitis.  I had it first on one foot and by the time I came to Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I had it on both feet.  I had tried cortisone shots and a cast on my foot.  This was temporary relief.  I was also having trouble with tendonitis in my right arm and severe neck pain.  There was a ringing in my ear and I was having hot flashes.  Plus I wasn’t sleepingvery well at night. Being a nurse and on my feet all day long was very difficult for me.  I really didn’t know what I was going to do.  I couldn’t even go to the store for more then a few minutes at a time.  I had difficulty even walking to the end of the block.  My energy level was so low.  The doctor’s thought it was my thyroid and it turned out to be my adrenals.  The adrenals were weak from all the cortisone shots I had received. I am Plantar Fasciitis free now.  I have no problem with standing for long periods of time.  I hope to be enjoying walking and bicycling again soon!  Dr. Sharon had been working on my Adrenals and my energy level is wonderful.  The pain in my arm and neck is all gone.  The ringing in my ear has disappeared and so did the hot flashes.  I am sleeping much better at night.  The stress in my life doesn’t get to me.  I tend to be a perfectionist and now I can let things go. I would recommend Dubner Family Chiropractic to everyone.  I can’t tell you how much the positive reinforcement from both Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen has meant to me.  I just keep coming because they make me feel so GOOD!
