Hip Pain: A Laser Therapy Patient Success Story

Clarise is our San Francisco Chiropractor “Patient of the Week”.  Clarise has been feeling right hip pain and tightness her whole life.
She had surgery to correct a congenital superior femur problem. Her
response post-surgery has been good, however she has developed bone
spurs on her right femur which irritates her right ITB, causing a lot of
pain in her hip when she goes out to ride her bike and walk her dogs.
We began treating Clarise with our Deep Tissue Laser Therapy, and after
5 treatments, she no longer noticed her hip pain! Last week she biked
45 minutes to the gym, then went and swam for an additional 20 minutes
with no pain! We are thrilled to have been able to assist Clarise to
getting back to biking pain-free again!

Plantar Fasciitis: A Patient Success Story


Heel Pain Treatment San FranciscoThis is the story of our “Patient of the Week”. Genny
reported with constant right heel pain
that has been persistent since November 2012.

Being an avid runner and
hiker, this pain began interfering with the activities to the point
where she had to stop completely.  After having an MRI done, which ruled
out a tear in her plantar fascia, she was diagnosed with Plantar
Fasciitis.

She had tried physical therapy, ultra sound, rolling on a
tennis ball, and rolling on a frozen water bottle and nothing has been
able to give her relief from her pain. She began using custom orthotics,
which used to help decrease the pain when she would run, but no longer
provide the support she needs.

After having her orthotics rebuilt, and
still having pain in her heel, she googled treatment for Plantar
Faciitis
and found us!  After doing a few tests, what we found out is
that Genny actually is suffering from something
called Fat Pad Syndrome.  FPS has a very similar case presentation to
Plantar Fasciitis, but the pain is localized to strictly the heel, and
the pain is not felt when squeezing the fat pad and then pushing on the
painful area.

We have been treating Genny with
our Class IV Deep Tissue Laser, as well as taping her fat pad for
additional support.  She reports feeling improvement in her condition,
and was even able to go on two hikes PAIN-FREE when on a trip to Sedona!
We are thrilled with Genny‘s improvement and can’t wait to see her back at 100%!

Many patients suffer for years with heel pain and foot pain secondary to Plantar Fasciitis. Just like Genny they try many treatments. Class IV Laser Therapy can often help when all else fails. To find out if you are a candidate for Deep Tissue Laser Therapy in San Francisco please call 415-392-2225. Ask for a complimentary consultation and laser demonstration.

Low Back Pain Treatment Review


Low Back Pain Treatment SFOur San Francisco Chiropractor “Patient of the Week” is Rasmus Lund.
This is a review of his experience as a low back pain patient at our chiropractic clinic.

Rasmus experienced a brand new episode of low back pain while riding his bike in Denmark. He thought he could walk it off, but he ended up having to take a cab home. He saw a chiropractor and the pain went away. Then he moved to the US and the back pain returned and began to get worse, prompting him to seek chiropractic treatment here since it worked so well before.

Rasmus found us because our chiropractic clinic is located at the Embarcadero Center in the Financial District where he works. After receiving chiropractic care, exercises and soft
tissue massage in our clinic, he is finally able to sit with no time
restrictions, and can walk longer distances without experiencing
any pain. Rasmus was very happy to achieve the same favorable results from chiropractic as he did in Denmark. Things are much better now.

Many of our patients work downtown in office buildings sitting in front of a computer by day, but then are very active at night and on the weekends. It’s very important to keep your spine in it’s proper alignment so that you are able to resist the forces of modern day living at optimal levels.

When the spine is out of alignment it can cause pressure on the spinal discs and nerves which can cause unstable bio-mechanical faults under the surface (vertebral subluxations) that are asymptomatic (you don’t know they are there) predisposing you to episodes of acute back or neck pain when you least expect it.  Regular chiropractic adjustments can help prevent these sorts of problems and can certainly help fix them quick if they happen.

Spinal Decompression Success Story

Spinal Decompression Therapy in SFKelsey presented to our spinal decompression clinic in 2011 complaining of constant
lower back pain which had been present for over 9 years.

Living a
healthy life filled with working out and playing sports, Kelsey was
heartbroken when her low back pain reached a level where she could no longer
enjoy these activities. Anyone that knows Kelsey, knows she’s a
fighter and she was determined not to let her pain ruin her life. After
spending countless hours at Kaiser to figure out what was wrong with
her, she was diagnosed with “back pain” and given pain relievers.
Dissatisfied with what she was told, she knew there was more to her
story, so she went to get an MRI. Her MRI results revealed degenerative
disc disease in her lumbar spine, and disc herniation at L5/S1. She
“google searched” for a treatment for her condition other than surgery
and found us!  She read our patient reviews about our DRX 9000 machine and how it helps
treat degenerative disc disease and disc herniations, so she figured
she’d give it a try.

Before Kelsey completed her first several session of
treatments, she reported being able to fly on a plane and start working
out at the gym again!  In less than 2 months, her constant and
debilitating low back pain was described as “mild low back pain”. Wow!

Kelsey now comes in periodically for her low back “tune up” and is able
to enjoy life again!  She enjoys going to the gym and playing softball
again.  We are over the moon with excitement that Kelsey no longer feels
like her pain is running her life.  Keep on rockin’ Kelsey!

Back, Neck and Arm Pain Treatment in San Francisco

Chiropractor San Francisco Financial DistrictOur "Patient of the Week" is Jennifer Rocco. We first met Jennifer almost 20 years ago. She had developed back, neck, and arm pain from long hours of repetitive movements at work. Jennifer works for a gaming company and is involved in testing new products and research and development. This requires intense sessions of sitting with lots of hand and arm movement and limited rest.

Jennifer soon discovered that regular chiropractic adjustments combined with regualr exercise and proper nutrition could keep her healthy and better able her to meet the physical demands of her job. She had witnessed co-workers succumb to the demands of the job and develop serious repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and chronic back and neck pain. She did not want that to happen to her.

Well…here we are almost 20 years later and she is still going strong. Jennifer comes in 2-3 times per month depending on her workload and is in excellent health. Sure, sometimes she overdoes it like all of us from time to time but she seems to have struck that balance between work and her healthy lifestyle that enables her to live mostly "Pain Free". And we are proud to say that regular chiropractic care is the centerpiece of her healthy master plan.

Patients like Jennifer are the reason we do what we do. We like to refer to our little chiropractic clinic at the Embarcadero Center as a "Corporate Pit Stop". The corporate jungle and the fast pace associated with it is the race track.  And your body is the race car. And just like the cars in the Indy 500 have to pull over from time to time and get a super fast oil, tire and parts change…as well as fuel up…so do you…and that's what we do.

Our Financial District Chiropractic Clinic is open 9-6 Monday to Friday and does not require appointments. When you need a quick tune up you can just pull off the race track and right into our "pit stop". We have no waiting so we get to work right away so you can get back on the fast track.

We offer chiropractic adjustments that include a stretch  exercise and warm-up massage. We also have "deep tissue laser therapy" and spinal decompression. There are not very many musculoskeletal problems that we cannot handle. We mostly treat neck, back, and wrist pain, shoulder and arm pain, foot pain, whiplash, carpal tunnel syndrome, and herniated and bulging discs.

So come on down. Mention this blog post for a complimentary consultation and tour.

Our San Francisco Chiropractors can be reached at 415-392-2225.

A Patient’s Headaches Treatment Story

Treatments for Headaches in San FranciscoOur San Francisco Chiropractor  “Patient of the Week”. Treatment for headaches story. Antone reported
to our clinic about a month ago with a terrible migraine headache that
he had been suffering with for two weeks.  The pain was getting so
intense that it was interfering with his ability to sleep, made it
difficult to work at times, and made it hard to relax and enjoy his free
time.  Life was just miserable and nothing seemed to help.

After trying everything else and not getting lasting results,
Antone decided to give chiropractic care a try.  After his first
treatment, Antone reported a 50% decrease in pain!  Dedicated to getting
better and out of pain, Antone followed the treatment plan his doctor
recommended and continued to improve after each visit.

We are SO happy
and excited to announce that Antone has been migraine and headache-free
for the last week!  Knowing he never wants to feel pain like that again,
Antone has elected to continue to receive maintenance care to keep his
spine healthy and moving properly.  Great job, Antone!

We have been providing treatment for headaches in San Francisco since 1992. During this time we have helped thousands of patients with tension and migraine headaches return to normal healthy lifestyles.

Treatment for Shoulder Pain in San Francisco

Shoulder pain treatment san franciscoWe have been providing shoulder pain treatment in San Francisco for over 21 years now.

Our “Patient of the Week” is Choung Phung. Choung was searching for shoulder pain relief but was unable to find treatment that could help. She searched online and can across some of our patient reviews talking about how we had helped their neck, shoulder, arm and hand pains. So, Choung decided she would give us a shot.

Well, several weeks later Choung has a dramatic reduction in her shoulder, neck, and upper back pain. She has more range of motion, and is able to carry things and sleep with much less pain.

The thing about shoulder pain is that it can linger and become chronic and debilitating without proper treatment.

Chiropractors seek to restore shoulder joint alignment, motion, and function. We use a combination of chiropractic adjustments to the neck, upper back and shoulder, along with massage, traction, ice, exercises and deep tissue laser therapy. We will also use Kinesiotape if the injury needs to be stabilized and supported.

We treat shoulder pain frequently at our San Francisco chiropractic clinic as the majority of our patients are sitting at the desk all day doing repetitive movements with their upper extremities.

To find out if you are a candidate for treatment for shoulder pain in San Francisco please call 415-392-2225.

San Francisco Chiropractor Review: Neck Pain

Treatment for Neck Pain in SFWe are proud to present our San Francisco Chiropractor "Patient of the Week" Norma
presented to our clinic with constant, severe, neck, shoulder and upper back
pain for which she could find no relief.

After limited success with other treatment methods such as physical
therapy, acupuncture, and other forms of pain management medicine, Norma
decided to give us a shot. She had read our patient reviews and done her research.

After the first visit at our clinic she began to
feel better. Her neck pain felt like it was melting away. Her upper back and shoulder pain felt instant relief and she knew she had found the right treatment…finally.

Our chiropractor team used a combination of soft tissue mobilization (ART and Graston),
stretching, traction, and chiropractic spinal and extremity manipulation, along with lots of TLC to
treat Norma's condition. We were confident from the start that we would
succeed. We are all very happy that Norma has finally found an effective
treatment for her chronic problem and we look forward to finishing what we
started at helping Norma return to pain free living.

Many Financial District office workers suffer with chronic neck, back, shoulder, and arm pain and do not know what to do about it. We do.

If you are like Norma and feel you have nowhere to turn, you may be a canidate for care at our clinic. To schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our San Francisco Chiropractors call 415-415-392-2225.
