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.
