Lavanya Agrawal: In Cupertino, chiropractic patient over comes shoulder pain, thyroid symptoms, asthma, arm pain, hand pain and weight problems
I attended an allergy talk by the Drs. Dubner at the Saratoga YMCA late July of 2005. Before starting care with the Dubners, I had pain in my left shoulder which radiated to my arm and hand which I’ve had for about a year and a half and was progressively getting worse. It was so painful and numb that sometimes I couldn’t sleep at night. I also had trouble losing weight even though I exercised on a daily basis. I had been diagnosed with a thyroid problem 17 years ago. My thyroid problem would make my face and ankles constantly puffy, now, there is no more puffiness. Additionally, I had a lot of asthma-related symptoms including bronchitis. Last winter, I was on Prednisone and antibiotics constantly. This winter, so far so good. No bronchitis and no medications. I have been receiving care from Dr. Allen and Dr. Sharon for almost 5 months now and I feel much better than I have in years!! My shoulder pain is completely gone! I no longer have pain radiating down my arm and hand when doing an activity! I’ve lost 10 pounds in 3 weeks! I have no more asthma symptoms so I have stopped using my inhalers almost completely and no Prednisone and antibiotics! No more bronchitis! On top of all that, I don’t feel tired all the time like I used to. I’d like to thank the doctors and their staff. They are very helpful and kind. I think people who are still in debate or unsure should give the Dubners a try. For those who are starting out should stick it out for at least 4-6 months to allow enough time for their own results.
