LOOK NO FURTHER if you are in search of the absolute BEST in advanced health and physical medicine. I am a retired veteran who has traveled the world in my 21 year career as a professional solider. I have been taking advantage of the advancements in chiropractic care and physical medicine since 1985 after being in my first car accident. I was so impressed with the results that I became a lifelong fan of this method of health and wellness. I was first introduced to Advanced Health and Physical Medicine in 2006 after a military training accident that left me almost completely immobile with one herniated and two bulging disks in my neck. I lost much of the feeling in my face which left me drooling, lisping when I spoke, and one of my eyes not able to close all the the way. Additionally, I lost much of the sensitivity and strength in my left arm and I had a very hard time opening my mouth due to intense jaw pain. The over-all pain from the injury was a 12 on a scale from 1-10. You heard me correct, a pain level off the charts. I could not sleep without the strongest pain meds and even then only a few hours at a time.
I went through physical therapy, steroid injections, prolotherapy, and went through 4 different type pain meds with little improvements. Two different surgeons gave me the same recommendation, remove one maybe two disks and spinal fusion. Both surgeons and the physical therapist recommended that I avoid going to a chiropractor after I inquired about this option. The MRI clearly showed that my spinal cord was being pressed out of shape by the herniation from my disk. They said that any type of spinal manipulation would be very dangerous. Well I followed my gut instinct and the recommendation from my personal physician who said whatever I do don't let them cut me.
That was 2006 and this is Jan 2014. I have never had surgery. My pain level dropped to about a 4 within the first two or three weeks of chiropractic treatments and now to a 2 on my worst days and a 0 on my best days. Advanced health and Physical Medicine has been a heaven send to me and my family during one of the most challenging times of my life. Not only have they helped me but my 18 y.o. son was experiencing pain in his spine and his x-rays showed that he had advanced scoliosis (an extremely crooked spine). Again the surgeons said he would need to have surgery to hopefully correct the problem. Which would be to cut him open from neck to lower back, brake his spine in several locations and place rods in his back. All of which could result in him not being able to walk afterwards. Again, I followed my gut instincts, and went to visit Dr. Brian Kean at Advanced Health and Physical Medicine. He was very optimistic and told me though my son's scoliosis was advanced he had helped many people with this type prognosis. Dr Kean devised and plan and went to work immediately. Today my son has NO pain in his back and the improvements in his spine are nothing less than remarkable. ALL without one cut of his flesh!!! The surgeons took x-rays at his next doctor's visit and what was one physician became 4 or 5 physicians standing in amazement that this had been accomplished through only chiropractic treatment.
I know this was a long review but I am extremely grateful to Brian Kean and the Advanced Health and Physical Medicine staff for all they have done over the years to keep me and my family healthy and whole. And if I can help just one person to avoid the KNIFE and all the harmful medicines and choose a more sure path to COMPLETE BODY WELLNESS then it was worth my time writing this review. All the best!!!
