Patient Testimonials

My name is Phil and I started treatment around October as recommended by my daughter. Going forward I received a series of various treatments to relieve my back pain. My visits were 3 times weekly which included pettibon, decompression, adjustments, and various recommended exercises. I am now feeling tremendously better. My pain has been reduced and flexibility has increased. I would highly recommend Oakland Spine and rehab.

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 like that they use many modalities, not just one or two.

The staff and team have helped me to not only reduce my pain levels, but improve my quality of life. They have helped me to see that there is always a way to improve your situation and empowered me to take lead in my care plan. I had input in my plan and was provided with tools and situations to work with at home too! Thank you to all those at Oakland Spine who helped me on my path toward a pain free state.

When I first came to Dr. Butler’s office, I had been to several specialists. I had undergone MRI and it was determined I had three herniated discs. One in particular was causing all the pain I have had. It was constant in the back of my right thigh and numbness in my right foot. The pain would shift depending if I was sitting or standing rapidly becoming unbearable. I had gone to doctors for consultation and epidural shots none of which worked. I was also prescribed celebrex which also was ineffective. After my last consultation I was told surgery was my only option.

While searching through my medical plan website looking for doctors for surgery I saw one of Dr. Butler I also saw an ad for him in The Bergen Record Sports section. I called the office and setup an appointment. Dr. Butler explained to me how the pain was happening and what could be done to correct it. I was a bit skeptical at first but did the two complimentary treatments. After the second one…I felt a lot better the next day…I was able to move around pain free under no medication what so ever. Additionally the staff at the Oakland Spine Center is extremely friendly, especially (Jen, Kirstin).

I highly recommend Dr. Brad Butler and Dr. Jeff Wells to anyone that has any neck and back pain.

September 15th marks the one year anniversary of meeting Dr. Butler at the seminar and sleeping every night since without another Ambien!

I came to Oakland Spine and Rehab after several months of trying and failing to self-treat the pain in my lower back and left leg. After my initial round of spinal adjustments and acupuncture, my treatment plan moved on the physical therapy. I have found the PT staff of Eric, Lori, Theresa, Natalie, and Jason to be first rate. While they are all knowledgeable in the treatment of injury, this staff takes their work to a higher level. They made me feel like I was part of a family. They pushed me when it was needed, corrected my form when needed, they listened to me when I described my symptoms and they changed my workout based on my needs. Most important, they made me enjoy coming to work out. Overall, I found the physical therapy experience at Oakland Spine and Rehab first rate and have recommended it to family and friends. I give your PT staff 5 stars!

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’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.

When I first came to Oakland Spine and Rehabilitation Center, I was suffering from lower back pain. After an x-ray of my spine, Dr. Butler pointed out that my posture was very poor. Due to the efforts of Dr. Butler and his staff, I now feel that I’m on the road to recovery and my issues with back pain and poor posture are being resolved. I would like to continue a maintenance regime so that these problems do not reoccur.

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!
