Before coming to Dubner Chiropractic, I thought I was dying. I had been suffering about four years from migraines, low back pain, severe fatigue and intense sugar cravings. Whenever I went outside, the headaches would get worse. At times, the fatigue was intense to the point of momentary unconsciousness. I was so forgetful, which I felt terrible about. I could not even walk for ten minutes because of swollen feet, legs, shoulder and back pain. I had to rely on my husband to run all of our errands. I fell asleep at night with tears in my eyes because of the pain in my low back.
Within four weeks of starting care, I could feel more energy flowing through me, and I knew I could trust these doctors. I decided to do the Health Rejuvenation Food Plan right away. It helped reduce the sugar cravings. The food tips and suggestions they gave me made it easy, and now I follow a new way of eating daily, which has made a huge difference in how I feel. Within one short month, my periods went from being totally miserable for 3 – 5 days to not bad and that is great! I now run errands all day without throwing up or having migraines. I can walk for thirty to forty minutes at a time with no swollen feet and legs, and no low back pain. My posture has improved and I’m standing taller than ever before. At night I fall asleep easily and sleep well. I have less stress and more energy. Even my memory has improved. I’m delighted to feel so good. I’m so much happier. I used to cry before I came here because of sadness. After only one month I cried again, but for joy! The Dubners have magic in their fingers! I feel like I’ve been given a second chance at life.
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.
When I was 21, I was diagnosed with a mild case of Lupus. The medical doctor had prescribed Plaquenil to treat it. At first I didn’t notice any side-effects from taking the drug. However, when I went to get an eye exam, the ophthalmologist noticed deposits developing in my eyes from the Plaquenil. That was not good. I had already been struggling with severeheadaches (including migraines), IBS, fatigue, bloating, sore joints, constipation and diarrhea.
At 30, I was diagnosed with severe Celiac disease. That’s when I came to see the Dubners. When I first started treatments with Dr. Sharon, I was skeptical. It didn’t seem like what she did would actually help with any of my symptoms. With the encouragement of my husband, however, I continued coming in for treatments and began feeling better quickly. I was able to get off all meds within six months! When I decided to do the health rejuvenation program, I had so much more energy and clarity than before. It was amazing! The treatments I received helped relieve my stress.
These days I am less stressed, I feel more balanced, and I rarely ever have headaches! I’ve been a long-time patient at Dubner Chiropractic and I highly recommend others to come in and be well-treated.
I first came to see the Dubners with severe headaches, back pain and leg pain. The headaches began after I had been in an accident when I was 7 or 8. After the accident, I couldn’t walk without pain for years. I saw other chiropractors, even long-term, with no lasting improvements. Eventually, I was diagnosed with cancer on top of my existing pain. The pain from the radiation associated with chemotherapy was immense. I was prescribed multiple pain-killers by medical doctors. The pain-killers caused nausea and vomiting, and gave me the chills all over. Another side-effect of the drugs they prescribed was memory loss. I felt embarrassed that I was unable to remember even short-term conversations. My hair was also falling out, which was difficult. The stress became overwhelming.
When I started being treated by the Drs. Dubner, I noticed improvement in my headaches, back pain and leg pain within only a few days. That was great! I’ve been gently treated for about 3 months now, and am happy to report that the leg and back pain has gone from constant to intermittent; and the headaches, which improved with each treatment, are now gone! Dr. Sharon’s work has even helped my hair to start growing back! In less than 3 months my memory has improved, I feel less stressed and more peaceful. I also have a better attitude towards life, feel much more aware, and am more accepting of what comes. I am so thankful to have found these doctors! I wish I had found this place sooner, as my life has improved so much already. I highly recommend Dubner Chiropractic to anyone, even if they have not had great results with other chiropractors.
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…)
I decided to start treatment for my TMJ. I had been suffering with TMJ problems for four years. I first went to the Orthodontist, then to a TMJ specialist at Stanford for almost a year. Since seeing the specialist, he gave me a mouth splint. Wearing the splint at the beginning was ok but with time it would wake me up in the middle of the night and make tension in my shoulder and neck. (more…)
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.
When I first came to Dubner Family Chiropractic, I was suffering from migraine headaches, as many as two a week! I had returned to HRT after suffering from frequent hot flashes for a long time, I had been steadily gaining weight and my blood pressure was heading up. On top of that, I have multiple sclerosis. Now after treatment by the Dubners, I have reduced the number of migraines significantly! I am stockpiling the Imitrex tablets instead of running out. I have also found that peppermint oil can sometimes stop a migraine from developing. I have reduced my dose of HRT to half a dose every 2 1/2 days, and on the Adrenal diet, I have lost ten pounds! My blood pressure is now in the normal range. Despite having MS, I can now walk for 45 minutes, ride my exercise bike, and go on a kayaking vacation in British Columbia !!
I suffered from tension headaches since 1999. At first I ws getting them every other week, but within 2 years, I was getting them 2-3 times a week. Every headache was accompanied by nausea, light sensitivity, and muscle pain. Before seeing the Doctor Dubners, I spent 5-6 years visiting a series of traditional Chiropractors, but the headaches only got worse. In 2001, I underwent traction therapy 3 times a week for 16 weeks. After a few months of completion, my headaches were back and I experienced other problems from the traction procedure. I began getting adjustments from the Doctor Dubners after attending a health lecture at Whole Foods in June 2003. Since seeing the Dubners, my headaches have gradually been decreasing in frequency and severity. I now only get these headaches every other month if I have physical activity that strains my muscles. The treatments the Dubners provide are gentle, but the results are real! My quality of life has significantly improved!
