Neck Pain Testimonials — Page 2
The combined stress of my husband's deployment and subsequent injury in Afghanistan, women's health issues, and daily life caused me to suffer from a stiff neck, sore shoulders, and constant headaches. I could not move without difficulty and pain. My suffering affected my emotional well-being too. I was either easily agitated or depressed. I self-medicated with 1600mg od Ibuprofen every day as well as muscle relaxer (Flexeril) and anti-depressant (Pristiq). The Ibuprofen helped, but it did not alleviate my pain. The muscle relaxer made me feel "loopy" and then would make me sleep. The anti-depressant helped motivate me to tackle my day, but only on the days I didn't take a muscle relaxer. I became overwhelmed with all that I needed to accomplish because things were neglected due to my sleep and/or pain. My life stressed, pain, and emotional well-being created a VICIOUS CAUSE AND EFFECT CYCLE; each one triggering a reaction from the other... I was referred to Martin Family Chiropractic for sports physicals for my children by another team parent. Renee was able to fit us into Dr. Kern's schedule within our very short time frame. Upon meeting Renee and Dr. Kern, their friendly and courteous demeanor encouraged me to seek Dr. Kern's advice for my daily pain. His comforting words gave me HOPE!* After our private consultation, examination, and x-rays, Dr. Kern reported that I suffered from subluxations in all areas of my spine. All of my symptoms were signs that I had pinched nerves keeping my body from functioning the way it was supposed to.* I have been a part of the Martin Family of patients for over one year. I have increased mobility in my neck and shoulders and I am pain free with No medication!!! My initial symptoms brought me to the office; however, I realized another positive benefit: the duration and severity of my seasonal allergy symptoms decreased!* My experience has made me a life-long believer in the positive benefits of Chiropractic care. My husband and children are now patients at Martin Family Chiropractic too! I look forward to enjoying another season catching both of my children's soccer teams, leading a Cub scout den, and spending quality time with my family while Pain Free and functioning at my full potential!*
My neck my neck and my back!!! Dr. Siino and everyone at Martin chiropractic have been a game changer for me!! As a stylist and gym rat I am always bending and moving in weird ways. I started with pain in my hips barely able to run anymore, neck pain from work and now I am a new lady! All the girls at the front desk are extremely helpful and flexible with my pain schedule too! Big love and thanks to everyone at the office.
Dr. Stef and all of her staff (past and present) are so kind, warm, welcoming, and honestly really DO care about each and every patient. Only, its more than that. Sure, she can fix your neck, back, hips, pinched nerve... Whatever! She can even fix feet!! (Ask about the toe-gasims, they are amazing!) But all of that, with the exception of the feet, you kinda expect from a chiropractor. I mean, that IS what they do. But let me tell you why Dr. Martin should be YOUR chiropractor. A few months ago my 3 yr old unexpectedly jumped on me, I didn't even see her coming. Anyway, not too long after my back began to hurt and then the migraine kicked in. I went in on a Saturday and went home to rest. Monday rolls around and now I'm oddly dizzy. Then next thing I know my world won't right itself and I'm vomiting, wishing I could find my feet on the floor. I go to Kaiser and they tell me I have vertigo. They give me meds, some exercises, and send me home. My husband tells Dr. Stef and next thing I know she is calling me every few hours to check on me, making sure I have her cell number, even offered to come to my house. I finally make it into the office and she has me do some exercise to rebalance the fluid in my inner ear and about a week or so later I can confidently say which way is up and which way is down. Kaiser may have given me anti-nausea pills but I can guarantee no one there was going to give me their cell number and check up on me like Dr. Stef did! She goes above and beyond above-and-beyond!!
