Patient Testimonials

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

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.

When I first came to Oakland Spine and Physical Therapy I couldn’t even sit up straight! After going through recommended treatment I am now living (and sitting) a healthy life! The staff is wonderful and friendly!

I became Dr. Butler’s patient in August 2010. Before my first visit to his office, in July 2010, I was in the emergency room with herniated cervical disc, and received two epidurals: first one in the E.R., second one as a follow-up with pain management. Both times, I was told surgery, surgery, surgery. But my preferred option was a non-invasive, more natural type of treatment. I found that in Oakland Spine & Rehabilitation Center with Dr. Butler. When Dr. Butler saw me in his office for the first time I was still in pain (on the pain scale 1-10, my pain level was about 7-8) and very limited movement of my arm and my neck. Dr. Butler is very knowledgeable and a very good listener. He listened and he heard what I was saying, he explained how, what and why I was having severe pain and discomfort; he came up with the treatment plan that was appropriate for me. As of mid September 2010, I received about 12-14 treatments of laser, chiropractic adjustment, spinal decompression. I noticed end of my fourth treatment, I was moving my arm, my neck more comfortably with less pain; end of my sixth treatment I was in the plane going on vacation. After eight hours of flight, my eight-year-old neice and I were in Paris, walking, shopping, enjoying the view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower. All these could not be possible if it was not for Dr. Butler and his entire staff in Oakland Spine & Rehabilitation Center. I am very, very grateful to Dr. Butler, Dr. Wells, and the entire staff for their knowledge, their care, their help with everything and giving me my preferred option of non-invasive, natural healing type treatment. Thank you.

As a farmer in Louisiana, hard work, heavy lifting, etc. were part of making a living. I’ve had bad back aches all my life. Rest and exercise eased the problems in youth, but by retirement (at age 71) I had severe pain – mostly from a pinched sciatic nerve in the left leg that had me walking with a cane – at time a walker – with constant pain. A sports doctor in Louisiana x-rayed and gave me a pain killer and a muscle relaxant, both of which are up for law suits later on.

A few treatments here at Oakland Spine, and I have been walking without a cane and virtually pain free for around a year. Single exercises keep the spine in alignment with regular visits to keep reminding me of how to prevent a recurrence of the joint problems.

I do recommend Oakland Spine to anyone who seems skeptical of chiropractic treatment. It does work!

About two years ago I started to have lower back pain. It would come and go at times and I felt I had to live with it. About a month ago I saw an ad in the newspaper about the Oakland Spine and Rehabilitation Center and gave it a shot. Now after about a month of chiropractic adjustments 80-90% of the pain is gone. Dr. Butler is THE BEST. Thank you.

I was treated very well, and mostly appreciated the promptness of being taken at my appointment time – hardly any waiting. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, even to family waiting in the waiting area. A very well-run, competent office – and my back is good too!

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!

Love this place. The staff here is amazing and treats everyone with the utmost professionalism. I highly recommend anyone with pain issues to come here for top notch treatment.

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.
