I came to Oakland Spine & Rehab due to severe neck pain. It had gotten to the point where I couldn’t turn my neck fully. I had tried using anti-inflammatories, heat, Icy-Hot/Ben-Gay, deep-tissue massage and stretching exercises. None of these things helped. I also believed that my neck pain was a result of muscular skeletal pain in my torso, especially the muscle bands in my middle back on both sides of my spine – that the “locking up” of these muscles and the resulting pain had traveled to my neck. This all had been going on for nearly a year, with the neck pain severe for several months before coming to Oakland.
When I saw Oakland’s ad in The Record, I was hopeful about treatment (although slightly skeptical because I had tried chiropractic several years ago for lower back and hip pain and it hadn’t helped). So far, I’ve been very happy with the treatment and am excited about my continued progress. My neck pain has decreased dramatically and my mobility has increased greatly. The muscular skeletal pain has also improved. A few days ago, I had my first day in many months with zero neck pain. I was thrilled. I can’t thank Dr. Butler and the staff at Oakland Spine & Rehab enough, and I would highly recommend this office to others.
I have availed myself of the services of Oakland Spine & Physical Therapy the past few weeks and have received admirable care from the entire staff. The massage therapy component, under the skillful hands of Victoria Megale, has gone a long way toward easing my muscular tensions. I always look forward to the anticipated relief I will obtain after a session with Ms. Megale. Congratulations on having such a talent person in your clinic.
Love the entire crew at Oakland Spine P.T. It’s a fun and happy place to hear. These guys did a great job of getting my shoulder in ready for surgery and then getting it rehabbed to 100% afterwards! Thanks for the fantastic support.
So far everything has been going as planned. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.
After my first visit with Sharon, I could feel a difference. Not only is she fantastic at what she does, but you can see right away that she loves it as well. Sharon cares about her patients and takes the time to get to know them and their needs. She is extremely knowledgeable and explains all to her patients. I am very fortunate to have had someone so caring to help me eliminate my pain. Thank you!
I’ve been coming here for one year. The spine adjustments, laser treatments, physical therapy have been very helpful.
First off I have to say the staff are the friendliest. They all treat you with respect and are very courteous. As far as resolving my issues with pain I have to say I have my bad days still but continue to get adjusted cause it does give me a bit of relief. Thank you.
I’d like to say that I am very satisfied with the service I received both in physical therapy and chiropractic care. The staff is very thorough in their assistance in helping me with the treatment I needed.
My first impression was of smiling faces. Amanda took me around the resort (Disney Land) to see the office. I initially came with pain and left without it. I appreciate the help and the time.
Thank you Dr. Butler for everything!
I was diagnosed with three bulging cervical spine discs and bone spurs in the accompanying joints. I was being treated with three percocets a day and two intramuscular injections every six weeks. Two epidurals in the neck had no effect. I was in constant pain each day and night. After 12 weeks of treatment at Oakland Spine, I have not needed one injection and no longer take pain medications!
I began treatment at Oakland Spine hoping their program that included spinal decompression would postpone or cancel the complex and costly neck surgery that was going to be scheduled for early 2013. At this writing I am almost pain free. I have cancelled the pending surgery and can finally get through the day without pain pills. Dr. Butler and his staff could not be nicer! Their personal level of service and friendly dispositions makes treatment sessions a pleasure and not a chore. I have high expectations that upon completion of my treatment, the neck pains I suffered with for almost 10 years will be over for good!!!
Sophia was a pleasure to deal with. She takes pride in her specialty and she cared about my well being. She made me feel extremely comfortable and it was relaxing.
