I could not walk without great pain from my sciatic nerve. I tried regular chiropractic for at least a month with no results. After I saw Dr Pustina, and was put on what I call the intermittent traction machine, within a week the pain was less, and after three weeks, it was almost gone. Since the treatment sessions ended I have NO MORE SCIATIC PAIN. I highly recommend this treatment. I have personally referred people and will continue to do so. I WAS VERY GLAD I DID THE TREATMENT.It was well worth the price.
In 2010 I was involved in a car accident. I was subsequently diagnosed with 2 herniated/bulging discs in each of my neck and lower back. I was examined by an orthopaedic surgeon who said there was nothing wrong with me; I could return to work. After 8 months of excruciating pain and discomfort my career ended. I was unable to sleep, focus, or carry on with daily living activites. I saw an ad for Dr. Pustina’s Spinal Decompression Therapy Treatments and quickly made an appointment to enrol in this program. After completing the program I am happy to report that I sleep through the night and I am able to resume my normal daily activities; so much so that I am proud to say that I am now employed with Dr. Pustina. Without the support of Dr. Pustina and the Spinal Decompression treatments, I would not have quality of life back.
I had first heard about the DRX 9000 from another construction worker (in December of 2011) who had success with treatment on the DRX for his low back pain. I have 4 prolapsed discs of my lumbar spine ,(MRI confirmed) due to a work related (ending) accident in 2002, so with nothing to lose after 10 years of severe and chronic pain I booked an appointment with the Spinal Health and Rehabilitation Clinic in May of 2012. After speaking with Dr. Pustina I booked the recommended number of treatments. After 3 or 4 treatments I started to get relief of the low back as well as the pain radiating through my hips, down my legs and into my feet. With continued treatments I was able to quit taking Tylenol 3’s and other prescription drugs and now rely on ice,heat,a vibrator and tennis ball (which I used prior) and occasionally use over the counter medicines. in my situation with the chronic pain I have maintenance treatments when the pain becomes too intolerant. If you follow Dr. Pustina instructions on taking care of yourself, you will find your quality of life will improve along with your family life. This DRX 9000 WORKS! I was very skeptical about it having any benefits; I know it works because I’m walking (upright) proof that it does.
Hands were going numb before treatment with Dr. Pustina. Did cold laser and chiropractic treatment on my neck and my hands are no longer going numb.
A year and 1/2 ago I suffered extreme leg and lowerback pain that is when I decided to see Dr. Pustina. After evaluating me he offered me treatments on the Spinal Decompression Table and within three short weeks I was feeling much less pain and didn’t miss a step on my feet at work or in walking my dogs roughly 3 miles every day. I was so satisfied that I recommended to my husband that he should go. After some procrastination he is in treatment now for his chronic back pain.
I switched from another chiropractor a year ago to Dr. Pustina. Michael takes the time to prepare me physically so that the actual adjustments are optimal. His active release therapy is exceptional for getting my tight upper back and shoulder area to heal. He truly cares for his patients.
I am very pleased with the care I received at the Spinal Health and Rehabilitation Centre. My condition was explained very clearly and we thoroughly discussed my options. The treatment I received was excellent and resolved the issue I was having. Dr. Pustina and his staff are professional, caring, and friendly.
I completed a placement at SHRC with Dr. Pustina and Sandy. I was able to see first hand the positive impact they have in people’s life. Sandy is an extremely positive and uplifting individual who is always happy to talk and help. Dr. Pustina, is an incredible Chiropractor who always operates in the patients best interest. He really cares about his patients and wants everyone to live the best life that they can. The office offers many different modalities and services that can help with an abundance of issues. Overall, SHRC is the epitome of a Chiropractic office, and I will always recommend it.
Dr. Mike has been my chiropractor for about 3 years. Each visit is like the first time; he asks about me and genuinely cares about my aches and pains. Dr. Mike is careful and thoughtful during each visit. He takes the time to explain what is going on with my body and what we, together, can do to continue to see and have results. I always leave feeling that I was important to him.
Dr. Mike and his staff are friendly, cheerful and helpful. They care about their patients and go that extra mile to accommodate me whenever they are able to do so. Dr. Mike cares about what he does so much so that he takes his knowledge out into the community by holding health care seminars on a regular basis. I would not hesitate to refer family and friends to Dr. Mike.
