Patient Testimonials

Physical Therapy at Oakland Spine is great. The exercises I’m doing at physical therapy have been very helpful to my back and leg muscles. I especially like how I’m treated. My favorite part is the back scratches and heat!

Dr. Aaliyah’s physical therapy team with Lori and tiffany use their sense of humor to cajole patients to strive harder to achieve their goals. Their professionalism guides you in their well-equipped facility with your safety and comfort foremost in mind. A great addition to the center!

I had been to chiropractors since the 70’s and until going to OSR, I was never presented a plan to take me over a period of time to correct spinal …. The x-rays disclosed scoliosis and stenosis and a lower back which Dr. Brad titled a “board”. Sp. The first area of attack was to gain mobility. Through physical therapy and pettibon I was able to gain much more mobility in the lower back and overall spinal area. For a guy 71 years young, I need mobility to get my golf game back in shape. Now, I’m ready to stick on a maintenance type of program to continue my progress. Pain has also lessened in both back and neck. What has also helped is the self exercise given to me by Drs. Brad and Jeff which I never knew before. They insisted on my doing the exercises for neck and back to compliment my effort at their office. This self exercise really helps and is a constant reminder that curing the ills of spinal problems is a lifetime endeavor.

A number of years ago I had serious problems with my lower back, which resulted in fusion of my lower vertebrae, and bone marrow taken from my hip. I have had years of pain management, drugs, etc. Then I fell on the ice and caused damage to my neck. I couldn’t turn my head in either direction, or even lift my head, without pain.

After starting treatment at this Spinal Center, I have now found relief for my neck, and also my lower back. I have not had to use any pain medication since starting the treatments, and I have improved my posture, my balance, and my life style.

I have had physical therapy on my different occasions, but they don’t compare to the therapy here. This therapy is from trained, knowledgeable therapists.

At the Spinal Center, you are treated with compassion and care, as individuals, not a number.

I’ve been coming here for one year. The spine adjustments, laser treatments, physical therapy have been very helpful.

I’ve been very pleased with the services and the staff at Oakland Spine and Rehab. I feel welcome and comfortable and have made many great friends while strengthening my neck and back. Everyone is always so sweet, personable, and professional.

I first met Dr. Butler approximately six weeks ago. I had pain in my right shoulder and a burning sensation radiating down my right arm causing tingling and numbness in my right hand. I had limited motion turning my head from left to right. I experienced countless nights without sleep.

Dr. Butler diagnosed me with bulging discs in my neck (C6-C7). Immediately following my first treatment receiving decompression and LCT 1000 and had instant relief from pain with decreased tingling and numbness. After a few treatments including adjustments I was pain free and sleeping through the night.

I am so impressed and completely satisfied with the care I received by both Dr. Butler and Dr. Wells. I am appreciative and very thankful for the service, the professionalism, and the caring, friendly staff at this facility. I highly recommend Oakland Spine & Rehab to anyone in need.

The Oakland Spine program has saved me from further surgery. A major part of that is Massage Therapy.

Thank you Oakland Spine for Sharon, your new massage therapist at Oakland. Immediately she seemed to “know” my spine and tailor the massage to my specific needs. Her expertise made my first time with her a top massage therapy experience.

What a wonderful surprise, after suffering 14 months with a lower back and sciatica condition, to find a program that would really work and keep me out of the operating room.

I have been a patient at the Oakland Spine and Rehabilitation Center for two years. During the first three month I was given a treatment plan which was personalized, “The Butler Program”, to help improve my condition. During this time I looked forward to my visits which were three times a week. Upon completely “The Butler Program”, I was truly amazed to feel better and wanted to resume many activities that I was unable to perform for almost one and a half years. I continue to do the exercises given to me during my physical therapy sessions and visit the office for adjustments regularly.

The staff at OSR is top notch. They are always friendly and very supportive. Dr. Butler and Dr. Wells are always ready to answer any question or concern. I am very grateful to have had Dr. Butler, Dr. Wells, and the entire staff help me reach my goal – to enjoy life again!

I decided to try Dr. Butler’s treatment center since my neurologist wasn’t improving my condition, which is severe Spinal Stenosis, herniated discs in lumbar region, severe arthritic neck pain and snapping when moving. All of the above contribute to neuropathy (tingling and numbness in feet and legs) causing loss of balance.

Since the start of treatments, my neck has full range of motion, mostly pain free and no cracking sounds! Some days I feel “normal” – little or no lower back pain or leg numbness for most of an entire day – maybe once or twice a week! I’m more than halfway through the prescribed program and I’m hoping to feel good “all the time,” as I’m a very physically active woman and need to be as I live alone and heat my house with a wood burning stove and need to chainsaw wood sometimes.

Decompression and chiropractic adjustments work well. Looking forward to more…

I love you all for so many reasons – getting me pain free and teaching me home techniques. Helping and taking care of my whole family! Always cheerful! I’m so glad I found you and I tell everyone!
