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!
