Patient Chiropractic Low Back Pain, Stress, Weight Loss Success Story with Cupertino Chiropractor

2004_Spring_flowers

I began my healing journey about one year before discovering the Dubners. After my second child, my daughter, was born, I spiraled into depression and anxiety. I had buried my memories of trauma from sexual abuse as a young teen by a teacher, but the emotional wall I had built was finally beginning to crack under the pressure of having a second baby. Every diaper change sent me into a flashback, I had visions of my teacher coming back to stalk me, and I frequently had panic attacks that I was poisoning myself with food.

On my thirtieth birthday, I decided to commit myself to healing.  I found a psychologist and psychiatrist and found out that I was experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I attended individual therapy.  I found a month-long anxiety and depression support group, and a 3-month long PTSD support group. I began regular yoga and mindfulness practices. Still I wasn’t feeling better, and I finally took my doctor’s suggestion to begin antidepressants.

Zoloft helped numb the pain I was feeling, and it did buffer me a little from the terrible shock of my father’s untimely death, hit by a car while crossing the street.  As I was grieving, the months dragged on.

I still wasn’t feeling that elusive state of wellness that I thought might theoretically exist.  My body was getting sluggish and I had to eat cookies and bars of chocolate each day to get through the hours. The thought of removing sugar from my diet sent me into a panic. What’s more, my back began to hurt in such a crippling way that I could barely get in and out of bed, much less pick up or play with my kids.  Desperate for a solution, I heard a trusted friend mention the Dubner’s, and I called within the next thirty minutes to make my first appointment.

Over the last several months, I have had so many breakthroughs and miracles with Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen, I can’t believe it.  With Dr. Allen’s gentle chiropractic techniques, my back pain is almost gone and I feel light and loose on my feet in a way that I haven’t remembered feeling since childhood.  The elimination diet was a challenge, but with Dr. Sharon’s support I made it through, and pounds have fallen off my body effortlessly and I never needed to count calories or go to sleep hungry.

I credit a lot to Dr. Sharon’s acupressure techniques, because my psychiatrist and I decided that I was doing so well I could go off Zoloft, and as a result of doing so I feel better and more authentic than I could have imagined.  Finally, working with Dr. Sharon with the Bach Flowers has been amazingly healing for me.  I have been on a long road to health, and perhaps all of the steps I took were necessary to chip away at these old walls, but I feel like the progress in my mental and emotional well-being that I have made with Dr. Sharon is at least, if not more, effective as many of the psychological methods I have used.

I have brought my children to the Dubner’s and I recommend their practice to every friend I talk to.  I am amazed at how Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen’s practice has helped me to heal, trust myself, and become whole again.

Thank you Dr. Sharon and Dr. Allen!

Patient from Santa Clara: Thyroid, Fatigue, Stress, Back Pain, Menopause, Night Sweats, Leg Pain and Posture Success Story at Cupertino Chiropractic

Monday, June 11th, 2012

I originally came to the Dubners with neck and back pain issues related to poor posture. I had seen a physical therapist a couple years ago who told me my posture was causing pinched nerves. I went to a traditional chiropractor for almost a year after that with discouraging results – I was in more pain, and had developed a limp when walking. With nothing seeming to work, I became anxious and depressed, and was prescribed medications to treat those symptoms.
Since becoming a patient at Dubner Chiropractic, I’ve had so many improvements which have brought me a tremendous boost of satisfaction. My posture has improved; the limp is gone. I’m no longer on medications for anxiety and depression. I find it easier to be present, energetic and happy. I have had bowel and urinary flow improvements. I’m not cold even though I no longer have a Thyroid. I sleep much better, without the night sweats I had before. I’m more in touch with my body’s needs. I love myself and others even more than before. I finally have the life I’ve been wanting. Coming to Dubner Chiropractic has been good for me physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The staff is genuinely happy to see me and truly cares for me. I love coming to the office, and I tell people about it all the time! I’m so excited to be alive!
