TMJ

I am 40 years old and have had TMJ, along with several aches and pains my whole life (ie. shoulder problems, hip and knee pains). Thanks to your commitment and gentle NUCCA technique, I am feeling like a 20 year old. I now live my life Pain free, not to mention-healthy.

TMJ

I was in a car accident over 2 years ago and have experienced terrible back pain and headaches since then. Iíve seen 2 different M.D.'s, 2 different Chiropractors, and a dentist for the TMJ that has developed since my accident.

It wasn't until I visited a NUCCA specialist that I experienced long term relief from the pain and headaches. The care that I've received has been wonderful and given me back my life. No longer do I wake up in the morning and say "Iíve just got to get used to the idea that Iíll be in pain the rest of my life." Iím healthier and happier then Iíve been in a long, long, time.

TMJ

Having lived through multiple years of pain and treatment for TMJ, I am elated to report the healing I have experienced through treatment with a NUCCA specialist.

As a hygienist, I have had multiple professionals recommend a variety of treatments over the last 30 years. I have gone the extreme from injections in the muscles in my neck to try and alleviate pain; to both maxillary and mandibular bite guards. I have become a habitual clencher/grinder and thus have involved all the musculature surrounding my head and neck. There were many days I would wake up in tears because my neck hurt so much.

I tried traditional chiropractic treatment and found one Dr. that helped me a great deal. I would get better for a while, but lapse into pain and muscle spasm so easily. I could not understand why I was so vulnerable as I live a very healthy life style (excellent diet and consistent exercise).

In my quest to become more fit and develop greater muscle strength, I started working with the exercise physiologist. Upon examination she said, your "atlas is off" and you need to see someone with training in NUCCA. New cult, I thought. Little did I know, that introduction was about to change my life. Treating the upper cervical portion of my spine has taken me out of pain. What is more significant to me is I have remained out of pain.

The minimally invasive adjustment leaves one feeling like "nothing has happened". No popping, no crunching, no twisting. Just gentle pressure that you almost cannot detect. But powerful enough to adjust my occlusion to a place that seems compatible with the rest of my body.

I thank the Lord I have found this treatment.

Multiple Chronic Health Conditions

My sister and brother-in-law introduced me to NUCCA. He had visited the Tulsa clinic, and knowing how poor my health was and how frustrated I was, he gave me the number for Dr. Friedman. He had met Dr. Friedman in Tulsa at Dr. Brook's office.

At that time I was becoming more. and more convinced that my Rheumatologist and the traditional medical approach wasn't offering me much. They were able to provide testing to monitor my Sed-rate and provide medication for my symptoms, but nothing was able to touch what seemed to be the progressive neurological problems.

I had experienced problems from a childhood with fatigue, ear infections, undiagnosed stomach problems and psoriasis. I had also had unexplained hip pain with difficulty weight bearing through my legs in grade school.

My problems drastically increased several months after a gymnastic fall in my teenage years. I required bed rest for approximately 2 1/2 months with extreme tiredness, lowered blood pressure, significant dizziness, and some tingling of my arms. I was able to return to school, but was never the same.

In college, I had to go off the gymnastic team due to dizziness, fatigue, and very poor ability to stay warm. I had experienced headaches, as well as neck and back pain for many years by this time. At one time I opted to sleep on the floor with my knees up to ease the pain for over one year.

I had made the rounds through about 6 doctors including the specialists, a physical therapist, and biofeedback specialist, and a couple chiropractors, but had experienced minimal to no change. When I did see change, the results were short-lived. I had been treated for a variety of conditions including TMJ dysfunction, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, frequent sinusitis, irritable bowel, hernia with reflux ... and the list went on and on.

Just prior to coming to Dr. Friedman for an initial assessment, I had visited my Rheumatologist with increasing concerns about my hand and arm tingling and variable hand strength. If! applied pressure through my fingers like to plug in something into an electrical socket, I would get a pulsating pain for several minutes. At times my hand strength would not allow me to open a regular peanut butter jar.

My back spasms had improved at night since taking Elavil to improve sleep, but were typically felt throughout the day. I still experienced an immediate change in blood pressure, energy, blood sugar, and cognitive functioning when I lifted or did strenuous activity.

I was unable to exercise more than a couple minutes at a time because of my fatigue and was experiencing an enormous amount of muscle pain. At times I felt that I would not be able to remain sitting upright when driving or walk into a store and back out because of the fatigue. Not only was I not seeing improvements, but my symptom's seemed to be getting worse.

When I came to Dr. Friedman's office for the first time, I was extremely anxious and desperate. I talked nearly non-stop during the evaluation because I was very concerned that there may be some small detail that the other professionals had missed that would make this venture successful unlike the last unsuccessful ventures.

It is very interesting and probably difficulty for most people to believe, but it is such an enormous risk to allow yourself to try something new. While you are desperate, sometimes it is just too painful to become that vulnerable-to believe that you may have a better life. If you commit to something, you have to believe that it will work. And when you begin to believe, you start dreaming of a different life.

When time after time, it doesn't work, you get to the point emotionally of just feeling more comfortable with the status quo - because that doesn't involve a big disappointment.

I was young and prior to the gymnastic fall, was used to pushing myself with intense physical activities like jump-rope competitions, gymnastics events, backpacking adventures, and other activities. I just couldn't accept that I was unable to impact my health to gain some of that back.

When Dr. Friedman first adjusted me, I was anxious. I was intrigued that the slight pressure that he applied to the second vertebrae could be that powerful of an influence on my body. When I stood up from the table after being adjusted the fIrst time, I remember being a little lightheaded and feeling different. It is hard to explain, but it felt like one side of my head had shifted from the other side.

As I relaxed, I felt one vertebrae after another move and adjust from high in my neck to my tailbone. I started yawning and slept so incredibly soundly. As I left the office, I realized that my vision had changed. Everything was clear and bright. A couple hours later, I began having extreme tailbone pain as my back realigned after the adjustment.

This is how powerful NUCCA treatments are - there is only small pressure placed at the top of your spine, yet there is significant movement at the bottom of your spine as a result. Not only did NUCCA treatments alleviate the neurological tingling and my neck and back pain, it improved my ability to concentrate and to function during my day with less fatigue.

I was able to begin looking at my diet and Glyconutrients as a way to address my muscle aches, my stomach problems, my adrenal functioning, and my psoriasis. Not only have I experienced improvements in my extreme health challenges, I have also seen nice changes in those small problems through the use of Glyconutrients and NUCCA chiropractic treatments.

I am so grateful to Dr. Friedman for his expertise, flexibility, and compassion in dealing with me. Sick, desperate people are not always the easiest people to deal with. (Potentially anything can turn into an emergency-when things change, there is an incredible fear that comes over you because you're unsure if you can regain what you just lost.)

I am so thankful that God brought me to Dr. Friedman's office and that He has blessed me with this change in my health. NUCCA Chiropractic care and nutrition have given me the quality of life that I once was convinced I never would achieve. I am enjoying life and can now look forward to a full life ahead. Instead of having to "survive" each day with the fear of not being able to get through the next hour, I now notice flowers, I sing in the car, I laugh with my husband ... I experience life. The help that I received was pivotal to achieving the health I now experience.

TMJ, Trigeminal Neuralgia

My pain surfaced 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with TMJ, which in my case was stress induced. Like many people I have a stressful job and when under stress I tend to clinch my jaw. After going to my Dentist, Orthodontist, TMJ Specialist, wearing mouth guards and taking prescribed pain medicine the pain was temporarily relieved.

But this past summer I experienced a different type of pain, and it was no longer only in my jaw area it was on the entire left side of my face and it was pain I had never experienced before. The first person I called was my TMJ Specialist and in so many words he told me that he could not help me anymore, and referred me to a Neurologist.

The Neurologist diagnosed me with Trigeminal Neuralgia and sent me off with a bag full of anti-seizure medicine samples and prescriptions for pain. I left feeling as though there had to be a better answer to this pain than medicine.

I started searching the internet under Trigeminal Neuralgia pain relief and I found a website that mentioned how a NUCCA Chiropractor can help with relieving TN pain. At this point I didn't have anything to lose but pain, and I was determined to stop taking the anti-seizure medicine.

I found a NUCCA doctor on the internet and immediately called for an appointment. I had been to a Chiropractor once before but this was not a typical Chiropractor so I did not know what to expect. After 4 months I can truly say that I no longer have to take any medications and my pain is gone.

-Robynne,


TMJ

I had been suffering from TMJ for twenty years. The pain would get so horrific that strong painkillers were the only avenue to temporary relief. I have missed days of work, suffered constantly and wore a splint 24/7. One Saturday while in terrible pain, I got an emergency appointment with a massage therapist who was recommended to me by a fellow TMJ sufferer.

She recommended that I make an appointment with a NUCCA doctor. She said "one visit was enough to cure her of the pain she was suffering". I went as recommended.

The beginning visits were showing slow signs of recovery, then something clicked and the pain left me. If I make an appointment every two weeks (right now), I suffer from no jaw pain. When I miss going for a month, the pain reminds me to make an appointment. Yet, I have been told that in time my visits will be scheduled much farther apart.

I am sincerely grateful for the tremendous amount of pain free days.

-Sharyn,
