Vera Knoesel: Headache West San Jose chiropractic solution

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

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!

Laura Evans: Easy pregnancy, neck pain and headache West San Jose success

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

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.

Sharon Goldfien: West San Jose fibromyalgia, leg/foot pain and stress solution

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I came to Dubner Family Chiropractic Center after hearing Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon give a Fibromyalgia talk at the Cupertino YMCA. I had undiagnosed fibromyalgia. I was stiff and sore throughout my entire body. My thighs were hard and my heels were very painful. I had anxiety and unclear thinking. Soon after receiving care, my muscles started to relax and feel good. Within 2 month my pain had decreased 68%. I am lessening my medication for anxiety attacks. My quality of life has greatly improved. My body is now responding to stress with more clarity and self-confidence. I even bought a new car with good feelings.

Gail Sanchez: West San Jose 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!

Donna Noell: Neck pain, hip pain and fibrocystic breast amazing improvement with chiropractic

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

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.

Maryann Wisniewki: Patient from Mountain View chiropractic success with shoulders, sugar cravings, weight loss and stress

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I have had tension in my shoulders for the last couple of years. It became so severe, my body was in the fight or flight position. After taking Pilates, I noticed that I couldn’t put my shoulder flat against the wall and realized I had to do something about it. I had been very stressed at work due to changes in the technology. On top of everything I was also craving sugar, partly because it was the easiest thing to grab.When I came to Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon’s office the results were significant! My shoulders are relaxed, I’m mentally alert and my sugar cravings have disappeared due to being on the Candida 2 week program! The Candida 2 week program has made me aware that protein is better for energy than sugar. Due to the Candida diet, losing my sugar cravings and being on Weight Watchers, I’ve lost 17 pounds in 7 months. Much of that weight was at my belly. It’s much flatter now. I also deal with stress a lot better. For example, I was on my way to a place I have been before and some how managed to get myself lost for about a half hour! Normally, I would be stressed out, but I managed to stay focused and calm and ended up getting there. So you’re on medication or not, and still not feeling good? Try the Drs. Dubner. I’ve had significant results, you may too!

Cheryl Hallberg: Patient from Los Gatos chiropractic success with fibromyalyia, chronic fatigue, hip and leg pain

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

 I first came in to see the Doctors for my hip pain. It was extremely painful, I could only walk up the stairs one foot at a time, and I was unable to put full pressure on it. I also had nerve pain in my left calf muscle that went up my entire leg. Previous Doctors and Physical Therapists had told me it was my lower back causing the pain on my hip and leg, and said it should go away, but the pain never stopped for 2 years. Within 1 week of being treated by Dr. Allen & Dr. Sharon, it started feeling better and isn’t an issue at all now 5 weeks later! After having lung surgery 5 years ago, my mid-back hurt on and off. I have also lived with Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for 10 years, so that I was tired and ached all over. It became a part of me, and I wasn’t expecting it to go away. When I came in to see the Doctors, they told me they have helped other patients with Fibromyalgia and might be able to help me. After seeing Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon, my hip pain has disappeared!  What’s even more amazing is my Fibromyalgia and CFS are completely gone after 5 short weeks. My energy level has dramatically improved, which makes me so grateful, because I am finally able to take care of my grandchildren.

Have chronic pain? Schedule a free consultation with the Doctors Dubner. I’m glad I did!

Ethel Burgett: Back pain, fatigue and sinus problems helped at West San Jose chiropractic center

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

For many years I was suffering from painful osteoarthritis in every joint and had terrible pain in the nerves on my ankle. I was diagnosed with degenerative discs causing me severe pain in my lower back. I tried many different treatments. I tried physical therapy and acupuncture. Then, I went to my primary doctor and ask to see a neurologist, but instead I was sent to integrated medicine. There they prescribed me cortisone shots. The shots did not have any real side effects, but after 3 months I did not want to keep fueling my body with all these medications. None of these treatments seem to work for me. My body was suffering, it was getting harder and harder for me to do different things and I was becoming less enthusiastic. The pain level and my fatigue were so terrible that I got to the point where I did not even want to attempt to do anything. I have been going to Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon for just 6 weeks and I have seen such great results! My general pain level was once an excruciating 10 but now it has decreased to a 1 or 0, which none of the medications I was taking were able to do. Due to the great decrease in my pain level, I feel more active and wanting to do more activities. As far as my muscle in my hamstring, it has improved significantly in strength. I do not feel as much hamstring pain and more importantly I have less muscle spasms. My constant fatigue has decreased and now I am more energetic. I am more relaxed and I appreciate regular daily things every chance I get. As an extra bonus my sinus congestion cleared up!

Connie Truedel: West San Jose chiropractic back pain, hot flash, fatigue, sleep problem, thyroid problem and weight loss

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I first heard about the Dubners at a Sluggish Thyroid talk at Curves. I had just been diagnosed with sluggish thyroid and was tired all the time and having hot flashes.

After just 3 weeks of care and no medications, I am losing my belly bulge and can drive home from work without stopping to take a nap along the road. Also, my mid back “stress” pain is gone! Best of all, after 3 years of waking up every hour or so with a hot flash, I am now sleeping through the night. My hot flashes have decreased, I have more energy, and even my boss and co-workers notice a great difference in my attitude – all for the better. I am also able to do garden work, house work, and the laundry without getting tired and sore.

Thanks both to Drs. Allen and Sharon Dubner and their staff for a journey of no pain!!

Margaret Atherton: Chiropractors of West San Jose back pain, weight loss, sleep problems, knee, hot flash, and thyroid problem success

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

I first heard about the Dubners through a Thyroid talk they were presenting at the Y, and I was really interested because I have a Thyroid problem. My Thyroid problem was mild for awhile and I was seeing a General Practitioner, but became worse when I accidentally overdosed on my Thyroid medication for a month. After a while, my medication had to be increased because my body got used to the dosage and it made me jittery. Along with my Thyroid problem, I had hot flashes, thin fingernails, and I was always tired. I also had trouble falling back to sleep when I would wake up in the middle of the night. On top of all that, because my knees ached, I had a lot trouble getting up after sitting down on a chair. I needed people to help me get up since I wasn’t able to do it on my own.

During the first four months of receiving care from Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon, I was able to cut my medications in half, my nails are stronger, I sleep better at night, and my hot flashes are completely gone!! Additionally, my knees are greatly improved and I am now able to get up on my own after I sit down on a chair!!

I am telling all my friends and family about the Dubners because I want them all to be healthy!!!

Margaret Atherton.
