I was referred to Dr. Allen at Dubner Chiropractic by a family member after an auto accident in February. My car had been totaled. I had pain in my shoulder, neck, jaw and hip. After one month of gentle adjustments by Dr. Allen, the pain from the auto accident is practically non-existent. Physically, I feel better than ever!
In addition to the chiropractic treatments, I also chose to see Dr. Sharon for weight and skin issues related to food allergies, problems I had dealt with my entire life. I had been looking for a place like this, where I could be tested for food allergies and educated about what kinds of foods are best for me, for as long as I can remember. With the acupressure treatments Dr. Sharon and I also addressed the coldness I had in my hands and feet. The results are amazing! Within 3 weeks of treatments and doing the recommended food plan from Dr. Sharon, the redness in my face cleared and the coldness in my hands and feet is now only 50% of the time instead of all the time. The inflammation I didn’t realize that I had in my body is now gone as well, as indicated by the loss of 4 inches at my waistline.
Within a month of seeing the Drs. Dubner, I am doing great! My memory is improving daily with the new food changes. I feel calmer. I’m drinking water on a regular basis. Now that my body is feeling good, I’ve been doing things that I had wanted to do for a long time, like spending more time outdoors and hiking. I’m no longer holding back in my life. People are complimenting me on how good my skin looks, and telling me that I look beautiful. I feel like I can go anywhere and do anything.
I highly recommend this practice to anyone, especially women. The office environment is safe and rejuvenating. It feels like I’m getting treated just by being here. If you are already curious, are drawn toward alternative medicine, or simply need to try something different, just get here!

I came to Dubner Chiropractic to address the shoulder pain, tension headaches, and long-term neck pain I had been living with. They helped me with even more than that. I was so happy to receive Dr. Sharon’s gentle acupressure treatments in addition to the gentle chiropractic adjustments from Dr. Allen. Since being treated by the Dubners, the pain in my shoulder has disappeared. I rarely have a headache, and my neck feels great! I haven’t taken a single pain-killer since I’ve been coming here. The acupressure treatments helped stabilize my blood sugar and blood pressure levels. I’ve even lost weight! I feel so much more energetic now – my body feels light! I am less stressed and find it easy to accomplish daily tasks. I recommend this care to others because I know it feels good, and I’m sending them to a place where the people are nice and always smiling. The staff treats me like family. Thanks so much Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon for helping me with my health concerns.
I came to see the Dubners because I had learned that their chiropractic care was totally gentle, with no twisting of the spine or cracking sounds. Before beginning care with Dr. Allen I would say that I had suffered from headaches (often severe ones), neck stress and shoulder tension for over 10 years. I learned to get by with my headaches which occurred at least every few weeks. I have now been under Dr. Allens’ care for 7 months and I feel so much better physically. My neck and shoulder tension is greatly improved and my headaches have reduced dramatically, especially the severe ones. If you’re a person who suffers from headaches you will truly understand the significance of what Dr. Allen’s’ care has done for my life.
Before coming to the Dubners, I had gone to another Chiropractor who said I that my condition was too serious and that I could not withstand the force from his adjustment technique. While at first skeptical of the totally gentle adjustments at the Dubners, (more…)
I’ve been under the care of Allen and Sharon Dubner for about two and a half years. My problems mostly concerned upper neck and shoulder pain, accompanied by excruciating headaches. When I became pregnant with twins last June, I made certain I saw Allen at least once a week; in the last couple of months (3rd trimester), I stepped that up to 3 visits per week whenever possible. What a difference this has made in my pregnancy! I have only had one or two headaches – - lasting only briefly – - during my whole pregnancy, with a minimum of spinal distress given the weight of the pregnancy.
When I began Hormone Replacement Therapy 15 years ago, I developed fibrocystic breast. I visited my M.D. and a Surgeon regarding my fibrocystic breast and the only treatment option they could offer me was having the cysts aspirated. I would have to have the cysts aspirated every six months for 15 years! When I first heard the Dubner’s at a lecture on “Balancing Hormones Naturally”, I thought I should give them a try. Since I have been receiving treatments, my results have been amazing and dramatic! I can always tell that changes are happening in my body just a few hours after treatment. My cysts have decreased and I don’t feel the same pain and discomfort that I had in the past.
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.
My mother brought me in to see the Dubners’ the beginning of my freshmen year in 2002. I suffered from mild to severe headaches sometimes 3 to 4 times a week. These headaches were accompanied by severe neck and mid-back pain. It’s been about a month and a half since I have been getting adjusted and I rarely have my headaches anymore. My neck pain is almost gone and my mid-back is doing much better.
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!
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!
