Poor Body Mechanics

"Back in 1989, I hurt my back by not lifting cases of oils & fluids properly. I was taking shock treatments, along with ice packs, etc. That only gave me short term temporary relief.  The long term effect left my back & started crawling down my left leg. The pain was unbearable & I suffer constantly.  A friend of mine recommended going to Dr. Martin. I did, & he examined me thoroughly. He asked me how long ago I hurt my back. He proceeded to take me to the X-ray room to determine that part of the problem was a “disc” pressing against the vertebrae’s.  With the combination of viewing health films in Dr. Martin’s video viewing room  & regular treatments/adjustments by Dr. Martin, I was back to nearly normal in just a couple of days. In a few days, the pain had completely left my back & my leg. Everything felt great!  Since that time, I have better learned to respect my body a lot more than I was.Now, I see my Chiropractor every three weeks, to prevent a reoccurrence of my problem.  I have recommended many of my friends & relatives to Dr. Martin & to The Martin Chiropractic Center. They in turn have thanked me for informing them & making them aware of an alternative health care system. Many of them have experienced the joys of being helped by Dr. Martin, as Dr. Martin has a way of committing to his patients immediately & indefinitely.   I don’t know what others may say or think, but, I know that Chiropractic has kept me healthy. I would recommend to anyone who has back or neck problems, to please see Dr. Martin for treatment before seeing a surgeon. Thank you for making me healthy & for keeping me healthy Dr. Martin."  -E.J.

Chronic Headaches are the Worst

"I honestly did not think that Chiropractic treatments would help my headaches. I had started having headaches about a year prior to coming to Dr. Martin’s office. I had been treated with pain medication; it was then determined I had migraines, so I was treated with migraine medication which helped me at first, but, more and more the medication did not work. Then it was determined they were hormonal, so I was given birth control pills which also did no good. Finally the headaches were more and more frequent and at the time I came to Dr. Martin’s office I had been suffering from migraine headaches for 33 days straight! Nothing gave me relief and it was starting to be quite debilitating. My husband suggested seeing a Chiropractor, but, I could not see how a Chiropractor could help me with my headaches. Out of desperation, I agreed to at least try it. Remarkably, I got relief from my headache after only the second treatment, and since that first week of treatments, my headaches have since not returned. That was four months ago and I am still headache free. I’m now a TOTAL believer in Chiropractic care!  - V.C.

Despondent with Pain

"Approximately 19 years ago I suffered an industrial injury. I entered Dr. Martin’s office walking in a “log” style and experiencing severe neck and back pain! But after a few weeks of intense physical and Chiropractic treatment I began to feel flexible again like an “overhauled rubber band” that has been severely weaken by daily use and abused over the years but above all free of fear or breaking down again!You see, let me explain; unfortunately approximately 3 years ago, I suffered a new back injury experience in an automobile accident. Like I really needed that at this point and time in my life. Then, to put the cherry on top, respectable and well known Neurosurgeons and Orthopedic surgeons tell me that spinal and hip surgery was inevitable and immediately necessary if, I wanted to walk again!! Wow! That scared the hell out of me. I then, placed them on hold and seeked other expert’s opinion. Fortunately enough, Dr. Martin was not far from my bedside encouraging me to not give up and, with his bedside spinal exercises I eventually got through my pain and depression. He didn’t have to be there, you know! Well, if you really know Dr. Martin, he has a difficult time being a phony. You don’t have to be injured  or medically in need of his professional services in order for him to share his sincere caring and concern about another human being. And, no he is not paying me to say all this ha-ha. The rest is history.  It took a while simply because of “good common sense”, professional advice and perseverance by Dr. Martin’s Chiropractic approach. I am not only walking, but, I am a grateful happy camper.  “Thanks” will not suffice, Dr. Martin, I encourage you to hang out in Pacific Grove and develop “close friendship “with the Monarch butterflies because you too, are an endangered species."     V.V.

Multiple Back Injuries

"I injured my back in January of 1996, again, for at least the third time that I can remember.  A friend of mine recommended that I see a Chiropractor. I had never been to a Chiropractor, and frankly did not believe in the profession. So it goes on…….The first day I met Dr. Martin, I could barely walk into the office. About a half –hour later, I walked out the door - it was miraculous! Since then, I’ve learned from Dr. Martin how to correct my posture to avoid injury; how to hold myself when I need to do heavy work; and how to exercise so that I can strengthen my back muscles and relax the tension back there. Also, along the way, Dr. Martin has found other little difficulties and corrected them- like the numbness that I had near my left shoulder blade that I thought was just a normal condition for me, but, has since disappeared. I’ve also learned how to work for hours at my computer without wrecking my body. I tell friends about Dr. Martin, and I must say my opinion of this profession has shifted radically. Thank you so much Dr. Martin for all your hard work.   V.M.

Oh... and Knees!

"I had what I thought was a pulled ligament in my left knee. I went to a clinic, as I had swelling and increased pain, but, the doctor there was uncertain of what to do… no x rays, no pain relief! The next day I went to my own physician, no X- rays, gave me Vioxx one a day and if not better in 7 days to call an orthopedic MD. He said my knee is “worn out.” I did not accept that. Most doctors bedside manners are obsolete now-a-days. When it was time for my scheduled maintenance appointment with Dr. Martin, I mentioned to him about my knee, he checked it out, manipulated it and since have had no problems with it. “Worn out knee!” “Really?” Give me a break! Pardon the pun! Thank GOD for Dr. Martin. He sure knows how to keep me in shape without surgery or pills!"    M.R.

A Teen Settled Down

 Dear Dr. Martin, “I’m so grateful for your helping me to get my health back. Two years ago I had a bad accident that kept me from learning & studying like the normal kids. I couldn’t think right, I couldn’t sleep right &and I was hyperactive too much I also had very, very bad grades. Now, because of your adjustments I am getting all A’s & B’s. Thank you Dr. Martin for making me better, smarter & healthier with a few simple adjustments."     - T.L.  (13 years old)
