TMJ/Jaw Pain

This letter is for those with neck and jaw pain that have not found relief. There is hope! Visit Dr. Shah, it will change your life!

 For eight years I suffered with a high level of pain in my left ear and left side of my neck and jaw that would radiate in my left arm and hand. I saw countless doctors and went through multiple MRI’s, CT Scans, and X-rays, but nothing ever reported an issue. In one of my recent visits to my neurologist, they were going to send me to a pain specialist.

In my research of the pain specialist, I found out that they were going to prescribe me pain medication and I knew that was not a route I was willing to take. When I was finally going to concede to this pain and know I would just have to live with it for the rest of my life, I decided to research alternative treatments (other than physical therapy, massage, or medication) to help my condition. That is when I stumbled upon Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care.

I thoroughly researched the different types as well as researched the different Upper Cervical Chiropractors in my area. I felt encouraged when I came across the Aligned Family Spinal Care website and saw that the NUCCA technique could help with neck and jaw pain without popping, cracking, or twisting my spine. I decided to give Dr. Shah a call and I am so glad I did!

On my first visit, Dr. Shah was extremely thorough discussing my life experiences from birth through present day to try to understand what events could have contributed to my pain and misalignment. I got 3D X-rays taken in her office, done by her. I knew I was in the right place, seeing how knowledgeable she was and how precise she was with every frame taken. Afterwards, she took a lot of time analyzing the X-rays as well as other MRI’s and CT scans I had done in the past. She didn’t adjust me on the first day, which I highly respected. She values taking the time to understand her patients, the X-rays, and then discuss adjustments and muscle work.

When I had my first adjustment, I could barely feel her doing anything - she uses a very gentle technique to align your atlas bone - but I experienced my first minute of being pain free! It was surreal. My quality of life has skyrocketed. I thought I would have pain the rest of my life, but I don't. It might sound too good to be true - and some days it feels like it - but if you are experiencing pain and can't get relief, look no further and give Dr. Shah a call. She can change your life too.

Dr. Shah is sincerely concerned about her patients and their well-being. She has not only gotten me back in alignment, but has educated me on different nutritional aspects that has given me more energy in my daily activities.

There is no one I would trust with my upper cervical chiropractic care more than Dr. Shah. Thank you for showing me that I can be free of pain and lead a happy, healthy life!
