My low back hurts I can’t stand straight
My whole spine seems a figure 8
My neck feels stiff It’s got a kink
The pain’s so bad I cannot think
And when I walk it’s with a limp
I turn my hips I get a crimp
Afraid to move I cannot dress
I fell I am an awful mess
I really must go see a doctor
The man who is my chiropractor
With healing hands and gentle touch
He finds the spots that hurt so much
A pulling here a thrusting there
He moves my spine with tender care
My low back’s better my neck feels fine
I once more have a straight spine
My hips turn free I now stand straight
Know somethin’ Doc You’re really great!
For two or three years I suffered muscular pain in my neck and shoulders. The pain was excruciating – all this was a result of a bad fall. I attended various clinics, physiotherapists, chiropractors and having failed to achieve satisfactory results, I eventually had to resort to taking regular doses of analgesics of various kinds. Of course in time, as well as upsetting my whole system, these began to lose their effect. Then I happened to be in Los Angeles and was told about this wonder Chiropractor, who’s fame was beginning to spread far and wide. His name -Arbi Mirzaian. I started attending him a year ago, and after two or three sessions, I felt as if a magician had been at work. I began to have no pain and I had a freedom of movement which I had not experienced for a long time. Now I fell recreated, reinvigorated and with a new outlook on life. Arbi is a miracle worker. I can not recommend him highly enough.
When my trainer Caroline first insisted I see you, as I’d ‘tweaked’ my shoulder at the gym and it wasn’t healing on its own, I was very reluctant. I was cynical about the entire chiropractic field and, to be honest, scared. What if you broke my neck? Or made my shoulder worse?
On my first visit, you examined my shoulder: you were able to exactly pinpoint the trouble spot. You carefully explained what was Wrong, and what you were going to do to fix it. You predicted it would take 6-9 sessions: in fact, by the fifth the pain was entirely gone, as was my cynicism and apprehension.
During that time, Caroline found out I’d experienced headaches at least 7 days out of 8 for years, for no identifiably organic reason. Again, she insisted I tell you.
And again, working your way through the muscles in my neck and upper back, you were able to pinpoint where the tension in my neck and back was so exactly that you could turn on a headache just by pressing on certain spots.
Since then, I’ve seen you for 4 or 5 sessions regarding my headaches. You also gave me a very simple exercise to do at home. I have already experienced 2 to 3 days in a row headache free, and warded off at least 5 others before they really took hold, just by doing that exercise.
Dr Arbi, I can honestly say you have made a vast improvement to my ‘quality of life’, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
