My name is Brenda. More than 10 years ago I hit my head while playing around with my husband. Over the next several months my neck began to hurt and I was getting intense headaches. My medical doctor prescribed muscle relaxers, pain killers and physical therapy. For two years none of that worked and I was still in agonizing pain. Now, I began to have tremors in my neck. My doctor convinced me to see a neurologist. The new doctor did thousands of dollars in tests and diagnosed me with Essential Tremors caused by mild seizures. I was returned to nine more years of physical therapy, injections, pills and pain management with no results. Finally another neurologist tried percoset and recommended botox injections to paralyze my neck muscles to control the tremors. I cant believe I agreed to have my neck paralyzed but I was desperate. I could deal with the constant neck pain and headaches but the shaking was ridiculous.
Two days before the botox I received a friendly call from a local Chiropractic office. Why would I go see him I thought, Ive seen all the best doctors and had the very best care. Two days later my life changed. As soon as Dr Erle looked at my x-ray he noticed what all other doctors missed. My skull was compressed onto spine causing brain stem pressure from the fall 10 years earlier. This was the main route of my pain and tremors.
For 10 years I suffered and spent tens of thousands of dollars. After a few months of Dr. Erle??s care I am 95% pain free and have not had a tremor since his first week of care.
Dr Erle saved my life. Oh, and I lost 50 lbs. Thank you Dr. Erle.
The first time I saw Dr. Klein, I could barely walk. It was so bad, I had to cancel several gigs...one of them being my regular weekly gig with the Mingus Big Band. When I spoke with Sue Mingus (the leader of the band) to let her know I couldn??t play, she referred me to Dr. Klein. In ONE session, he straightened me out...no pain at all!
Dr. Klein's hands worked like magic on my back. Although the Dr. was very clear in communicating that there was a method to his technique. Walking out of his office after a treatment, I felt free of pain. And In a matter of months, my posture was better and the pain did not come back. In addition to his expertise as a doctor, he showed a real interest in my life as a person. I felt like Dr. Klein was a friend to me who sincerily wanted me to be pain free. Thank you Dr. Klein.
I've been a patient of Dr. Klein's for several months now and am really happy with his work. I work as a dancer, personal trainer and pilates teacher and went to him for a leg injury and now have no leg pain. We are now able to work on other problem areas like my back and neck, the areas most people see chiropractors for. Not only is Dr. Klein a skilled chiropractor, he also has a wonderful personality and truely cares about his patients. I'd recommend Dr. Klein to anyone seeking chiropractic care.
