I was always very wary of seeing a chiropractor, but my shoulder and neck pain had gotten to a level of pain where I had to take pain killers to deal with it. I finally decided to give it a chance and saw Dr. Mahtaban. Immediately, he could feel all the muscle tension I had in my shoulders and did a great job of explaining everything going on with my body/muscles so that I could have a better understanding of why I was having pain in certain areas.
I started off going in twice a week and rated my pain an 8 out of 10. After the first appointment I instantly felt my muscles loosen up and became more aware of my posture while sitting. He used a heating pad on my upper back to loosen the muscles, then ran a small plastic tool along the top of my shoulders before adjusting my neck and back. By my 4th visit I my pain rating had dropped to 2 and my neck was healing so well that I didn't even need an adjustment!
Dr. Mahtaban is great to work with, he puts you at ease by making sure you understand everything he is doing. I haven't touched a single pain killer since seeing him and that in itself is amazing. He even showed me a few stretches that I could do on my own during the day to keep my muscles loose and relaxed. I have switched to only going in once a week now - my neck and shoulders have never felt better! :)
"I have been suffering from headaches for the past few years. I read somewhere that chiropractic can help with headaches. I was tired of taking medication so I gave it a shot. I use to get headaches everyday, now I get them about once a month. Thank you so much Dr. J!!"Jackie W.
"r J has been a godsend to me. I am a very active weekend warrior, there have been times where I could barely move my body, until I get treatment from Dr. J!"Michael T.
"I was diagnosed with having a bulging disc by my medical doctor. I was referred to both a neurosurgeon and an orthopedic surgeon, both recommended epidural shots and surgery. I was devastated. My friend, Dr. Jamie told me he could potentially help. Not only did he help me with my pain, he realized the source of my pain was not from my bulging disc. He then alleviated almost all the pain in 4 treatments without any medication or surgery. From the bottom of me heart, I believe he is a man of gumption and he will go beyond the realms of western medicine to heal you."Aman A.
"At the age of 18 I was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. I was told by orthopedic surgeons that I would need surgery on my back if I ever wanted to be pain-free. Long story short, I found Dr Jamie through a friend and he has changed my life. I use to be bed ridden for days at a time if I moved my back the wrong way. I can now go months without have such debilitating pain, all thanks to the best chiropractor, Dr Jamie."Steven B.
"I started seeing Dr. Mahtaban last month for this horrible sciatica I was having. Fearing I had a pinched nerve, I immediately started looking around for a good Chiropractor in Beverly Hills. My search led to Dr. Mahtaban. After running a few tests he explained to me that my sciatica wasn't from a pinched nerve in my back, but a muscle (in my butt region) that was pinching on my sciatic nerve. After just 1 session I noticed significant relief. He told me that if it was a disc problem I would not have felt this much better in this short amount of time. After going in 6 sessions I can easily say that I am 95% percent better. Dr. Mahtaban believes I will be 100% in the next session or 2. I'm so happy I found this man! Highly recommended."Joseph S
