Hi, my name is Kelly. I’ve been a patient here for about a year. Before I started treatment with Dr. Butler I was VERY sick. I’ve had severe fibromyalgia for seven years now. I had pain basically everywhere. The muscle spasms were excruciating. I was exhausted, I had frequent violent migraines. I worked as a hair dresser and became disabled a few years ago. I tried treatment with a rheumatologist who gave me injections of liticane all over my back and neck, but it was very temporary and after a while the injections didn’t help much at all and the impact from the needle hurt just as bad as my usual pain. My mom, who is also a patient here, recommended Dr. Butler and I wasn’t “skeptical” but I just didn’t want to get my hopes up too high. When I first came here, I was in pretty bad shape and I had Bells’ Palsy. After a few visits, the Bells’ Palsy subsided and I felt more flexible, my posture improved (a miracle in itself). The migraines are few and far between and nothing like they used to be. Overall I’ve seen a definite improvement in my health. I would definitely recommend anyone to try Oakland Spine and Rehabilitation!
September 15th marks the one year anniversary of meeting Dr. Butler at the seminar and sleeping every night since without another Ambien!
I initially came in to see Dr. Butler because I had injured my shoulder and neck while helping to life a television set with my husband. I was getting horrible headaches that put me out of commission for days at a time. Little did I know that the lifting and headaches were not the root of my pain; they were the symptoms. It had been discovered that there was some degeneration in my neck as well. After many chiropractic adjustments later, it seemed as thought the majority of the pain had gone away. In order to figure out and narrow down where the imbalance was, I had an MRI on my C-spine, and low and behold, the root of the pain was discovered! Some discs in my C-spine were not where they should have been…I felt instant relief from the combination of therapies. My neck motion has improved drastically and my pain has diminished. The headaches have also diminished as well. I thought the pain was something I had to live with for the rest of my life – but now I know better! I have Dr. Butler to thank for taking the pain away!
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.
Oakland Spine & Physical Therapy provided me with the relief I was seeking for 30 years. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical at first, having been through so much rehabilitation and physical therapy – and to me, that’s my miracle!!! The staff at OSR, from the doctors, technicians and office staff could not be any nicer or more accommodating – and the cookies are good too! Thank you to all.
The staff at Oakland Spine & Physical Therapy center so far have been a great partner in my recovery. They are attentive and devise rehab plans that fit me. I look forward to continuing my program with them.
I started my first treatment plan with Dr. Butler in early August 2010. That treatment plan included decompression, adjustments, laser, pettibon therapy three times a week for about eight weeks. During that time I had my up’s and downs as Dr. Butler said I would, mostly up’s Now, after eight weeks, because I am doing very well and feeling great pain and discomfort free, I am on the second phase of my treatment plan, which means less frequent and less duration of the treatments. More pain free time means more comfort and more enjoyment of the things I like to do most.
In such a short time I am pain and discomfort free without any surgery or using any kind, type, or form of medication.
Thank you Dr. Butler, Dr. Wells and the entire staff of Oakland Spine and Rehabilitation Center for your help, for your understanding of where I was coming and where I want to go, your knowledge, your positive and cheerful attitude is a very important element of the healing process.
I can’t put into words what a great difference I feel and see in me. It has only been three weeks and I have been able to cut my medication down tremendously. My mind is clearer every day. My body is stronger. My spirit is healing. I can’t believe it. The staff is lovely, the doctors are caring and the facility is super clean. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Oh and I never have to wait! Heaven.
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.
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.
I came into Dr. Brad’s office with neck stiffness on the left side and lower back pain. My pain was so severe I could not function on my job or do any other activities I have always enjoyed. I am now half way through my treatment and my pain is minor if at all. Thanks to Oakland Spine, when I do experience discomfort, I have been taught helpful exercise to alleviate any pain so that my mobility is 100% again. I not only receive adjustments but physical therapy as well to strengthen my muscle movement. I have never experienced such a warm and friendly practice as Oakland Spine. The doctors and staff are receptive to any and all limitations you may have and always make you feel welcome and have a lot of compassion. I used to see a chiropractor two years ago but only received x-rays and adjustments and my symptoms would only reoccur at a later date. Oakland Spine showed me that there is more thorough and effective treatment that goes along with adjustments to have a healthier lifestyle and bodily function. I always refer this practice to anyone I know that is suffering from pain. I am so glad and grateful to have had the experience to come to this office for care!
