I came to Dr. Aaron on a referral from my hair dresser. I moved to NY 4 years ago and hadn’t found a chiropractor I liked. But that all changed when Dr. Aaron started treating me, he not only did a complete “work up” to pinpoint my problems that I had for 10 months. Once he found out where my problems were, he carefully explained them and designed a treatment program for me. Other chiropractors I had gone to did the same thing to me as they did for everyone else. Within a couple months I was pain free! I would highly recommend Dr. Aaron to family and friends.
On November 14, 2008 I fell, in excess of 16 feet from a rooftop. I was 57 years old at the time. I sustained compression fractures, with fragmentation to T10, T11, T12 and L-1. The discs, at levels L-1 through L-5 were bulged. The discs at levels T10, T11 and T12 had collapsed. I also sustained a head injury along with multiple (6) broken ribs and multiple fractures in my left hand. Five months into my recovery I was developing scoliosis (curing), rotoscoliosis (twisting) and kyphosis (hunching). The recovery process had stopped. Surgery was suggested to stabilize the spine…I refused surgery. Rods, pins and screws were not part of my plan.
Prior to the injuries I was athletic and active in competitive sports, achieving State and National Competitions. It all ended November 14, 2008. I know how to work hard to overcome obstacles. I can deal with the pain that training and competition injuries provide. The pain from this back injury…it’s a different story…it is mentally and physically debilitating.
My daily pain level was consistently at 8 to 10. Standing, walking and lying down were extremely painful. A Lazy-boy chair was my world for 20 months. Narcotic, NSAID pain meds and muscle relaxers were part of each and every day. These meds destroyed my thought process. I was seduced then abandoned by the medical professionals. The MD’s and PT’s could offer little for recovery. They could write scripts for pain meds that became less effective as time passed. My insurance company cut my treatment regimen off because…”there is no reasonable expectation for improvement.” I was discouraged and frustrated.
My daughter insisted that I give Dr. Aaron Pazik and opportunity to evaluate me and develop a treatment plan for me. I trusted Dr. Aaron with my life…and came out a winner! I worked hard for a year. I followed his dietary recommendations, the tailored supplement regimen, the Spinal Rejuvenation Therapy Process and I was custom fitted for foot stabilizers (most important). He never gave up on me. He always encouraged me to reach beyond my perceived limitations.
It’s April 2011. I can walk, run, bicycle and train on a total gym. I can kick ass again!! I can lay in a bed…no more Lazy-boy. The pain levels are in the 2-4 range. No more “Meds.” There are many more good days than bad. Life has forever changed me…but it’s good. I’ve been blessed through prayer and my Chiropractor…Dr. Aaron Pazik.
I bought orthotics from the Good Feet Store on Walden Ave in Buffalo, they took care of my foot pain temporarily. But if they were put in wrong bad foot pain, back aches and leg cramps happened. I’ve had Dr. Pazik’s Footleveler orthotics two weeks and already no leg cramps, no back aches, and I feel much better. Thank you.
I didn’t know I needed to come, thought I was just old! My feet are so much better, I can do everything again. My neck moves with ease now! I aim to do this forever. So glad I didn’t wait any longer.
Prior to treatment I suffered from daily tension headaches and hip pain. I could not ride my horses without being in pain or go for walks. Now I can walk for several hours a day with my dogs, ride horses with minimal to no pain, and rarely have tension headaches.
I am now almost 4 months into treatment with Dr. Pazik. I am feeling better than I have in a very long time! I am physically able to do more with my kids and do it with little to no pain! I couldn’t ask for anything better.
It has been almost seven months now since I have been coming to Dr. Aaron and I have to say that in that period of time I have never felt better and been able to have such a range of motion as I experience now. This is much better than when I first came through the door to see Dr. Aaron and his excellent staff. Not being able to stand vertical, bend over, and sit or stand for any length of time is not how one should live one’s life. In this day and age it is refreshing to encounter a group of individuals who are as caring about your overall well being as Dr. Aaron and his staff. These people go the extra mile to see that you are taken care of in every aspect from the time you enter the office and even after you have left. Dr. Aaron has done more for me in the last seven months than any other medical professional I had seen about this problem in thirty years. He cares about healing you and does not give you a band-aid approach and send you on your way. I would have never thought that was possible after hearing for years that the only solution was pain killers and eventually having surgery to correct my condition. With Dr. Aaron and his staff it is an approach to heal you entirely without the need for surgical intervention. It is about getting you better naturally and making lifestyle changes that benefit you the best as an individual. I cannot say enough about Dr. Aaron and his staff and their approach to overall wellness. These people treat you like you are family and genuinely care about your well being. They are the best in my book. Take it from someone who could barely walk at one time. If you want the best this is where you need to be.
When I first started coming here I was told I was in stage 2 disc degeneration. I was aware there was a problem, I just didn’t know how badly. For years after a bad motorcycle accident I lived with chronic pain and not any advice except to take a pill for the pain. Finally I decided after 18 years to commit myself to a cure instead of just dealing with the pain. Within the first few months I noticed a difference. Now I am able to manage my pain much better and the intensity has been reduced by about 75%. I am so grateful to Dr. Aaron and his staff for offering another alternative for my chronic condition. I feel like a new person.
Dr. Aaron – I want to thank you for your practice and your methods of treatment. They have given me the healing that I needed since Junior High School and that was over 40 years ago. I had been to many traditional chiropractors over the years after having a trampoline accident in gym class. I had weakness in my back and whenever I tried to exercise to lose weight, get healthier and get stronger, the disc problem would become irritated and the pain and the need for some kind of relief cycle would begin all over again. I had pain down my leg from my sciatic nerve, my knees were giving out on me, and I felt terrible. Now, I have strength, no pain, and stamina to go on and become cardio healthy. I go to the gym and keep getting stronger and stronger. I have also lost weight. I admit that I wanted to give up at times, and I thank you for encouraging me when I did not keep my appointments and did not like the discomfort of the traction table. I thank you Dr. Aaron because your methods have given me renewed health for my years ahead. I recommend you to anyone who wants to get stronger and live healthier.
I was in a wheelchair for 4 months and then on strong medications. I tried acupuncture, acupressure, herbal medicine, physical therapy, etc. I had to limit work and play. Chiropractic care has allowed me to return to work and do many of the leisure activities I used to do – without medications! I have learned how chiropractic care works and also information about vaccines and supplements. I have also benefitted from wobble chair exercises and shoe inserts. I was always afraid to get chiropractic care because I was told that it hurts. Dr. Pazik is very gentle and I usually feel better immediately after an adjustment.
