"Five years ago I started feeling a slight pain in my neck. I thought I may have slept wrong or pinched a nerve somehow and figured it would get better on it’s own in a few days. A few days passed and then a few more and it didn’t go away. The pain was not unbearable (about a 5 on a 1-10 pain scale) so I ignored it and kept going about my daily life. Slowly over time I noticed it getting worse.

It went from being a minor, dull ache to a major annoyance that started to interfere with my life. The pain was now a 10 on the pain scale and I couldn’t even stand for more than 10 minutes at a time and I couldn’t sleep.

I’m a machinist by trade and lift heavy objects all day at my job. The unbearable pain made it almost impossible to do my work. Luckily, I have an understanding boss who tolerated my declining production so I didn’t lose my job or get forced out on disability.

My work-life wasn’t the only thing suffering. As a pastime I love to work on dirt track race cars with my friend. I’ve been doing it for years now and really love it but there was no way I could spend any amount of time bent over a car engine in my current condition.

One day I was telling my brother about my problem and he suggested I call Dynamic Health & Pain Management. He had gone there for severe lower back pain and they were able to get rid of it. I called the next day and scheduled my consultation.

When I went to my appointment the doctor was very thorough. He found a congenital defect in my spine that no other doctor had noticed before. He put together a treatment plan for me and I got started right away.

Within four weeks of starting treatment I started noticing the pain decreasing. Now it is negligible. I am so glad that I took my brothers advice. I have almost no pain at all and I’m back to being able to stand without pain and sleep. I’m doing well at my job and I’m back in the shop working on cars!"

“I began having migraines 3-4 times a week. I also began experiencing pain in my neck that radiated down my left arm and the pain was constant. I had been to four different Doctors and was prescribed all kinds of medication. I couldn’t lift my arm, and doing everyday things like brushing my hair, putting on makeup and eating was extremely painful.

While at Taste of Charlotte, I decided to stop at Dynamic Health & Pain Management’s (DHPM) booth and participate in the screening. Once they explained how they could help me, I made an appointment to come in for my complimentary consultation.

When I first walked in, I knew that DHPM was different from the other places I had been. Once I began treatment, I could tell the difference. The pain in my neck and shoulder has decreased dramatically and I have only had one migraine since starting treatment.

I am no longer taking pain medication, which is important to me. I was tired of taking a bunch of pills every 3-4 hours. I was also excited because for the first time in a long time I was able to drive a long distance to see my family. I feel better than I have in a while and I know that I will continue to improve as time goes on.”

“I was living with constant shoulder pain from a pinched nerve and was miserable every day. Not knowing the cause of the problem, I was in denial and I thought the pain would just go away on its own. Nearly six years later, I was still experiencing the pain.

I was an ultrasound technician and a full time mom. My daughter is a total “Glam Girl.” She is young, active and bright for her age. Just starting to learn how to be a lady as she is growing up, made me want to be a major part of this process and not miss a second of her life. I was limited to the things I could do with her, which included no play time or daily activities. Dizzy spells kept me from doing simple tasks like getting her dressed in the morning, and forget playing dress-up! There came a point when I didn’t want to do any cooking or cleaning, only sleep.

My husband observed how much I wanted to have my life back. He knew I wanted to be the wife, mom and person that I always wanted to be. One afternoon, he was searching online and found Dynamic Health & Pain Management (DHPM). After reading through their website, he suggested I call. I was hesitant because I tried chiropractic care and that didn’t give relief, so what else could?

Little did I know, they could help. Dynamic Health & Pain Management saved me. After just a month of treatment, I started to notice a huge difference in my quality of life. I began to work more often and exercising was no longer impossible. Doing laundry, cooking and cleaning became easy to do. Most importantly, I was able to devote my full self to my daughter and be her mom again. She is my little best friend!

I am so thankful to my husband for finding DHPM. The care they provide is a completely unique and therapeutic approach that everyone in pain should try. I was skeptical and lost hope, but I am thankful I called.”

“Being from India, marriage is very important. I have been married for 22 years. I knew the moment I met my wife, I wanted to marry her. It took her one week to tell me the same. I look up to her, respect her and love her. By nature when she tells me something, I listen.

I had been living with atrocious neck pain for about 16 years. It limited me and affected every personal and social aspect of my life. I highly enjoy soccer and golf, but couldn’t be involved in any physical activity or sports. Working in IT Programming, I constantly sit in front of computers all day and it was impossible to work because of the pain in my neck.

I couldn’t sit still for more than a few minutes before the pain set in. I also couldn’t bend over to get in and out of the car, and forget about sitting in the vehicle for long periods of time! I had sought help from doctors but was told I’d have to live with the pain or subject myself to pain killers. I felt helpless.

One afternoon, my wife saw the television commercial for Dynamic Health & Pain Management. She took down the number and called to make me an appointment. I trusted her judgment, followed her instinct and came in for my free consultation. When I met with Dr. Mazal, he instantly told me the cause of my neck pain. He also explained the treatment protocol that would relieve it. Everyone was so helpful and made me feel comfortable. I was confident that I was in good hands.

Within a few short weeks, I felt a significant difference. Then, out of nowhere the pain stopped and hasn’t returned. For the first time in 16years, I am pain free. I cannot explain the satisfaction I have with Dynamic Health & Pain Management. I recommend them to anyone and encourage them to reap the benefits like I have. I know what life is like with pain and it’s very different without it. I will be thankful all my life for Dr. Mazal and all the staff at Dynamic Health & Pain Management.”

“I first heard of Dynamic Health and Pain Management through a health fair at Duke Energy. A large part of my work day is spent monitoring control boards so that doesn’t leave much time for getting up and walking around during the day.

As time passed, I started to develop severe shoulder pain. This made my job extremely difficult because I couldn’t sit still for long periods of time. Any repetitive movement or motion was extremely painful. It felt like a constant burning pain and eventually felt like someone was stabbing me with a knife.

Not only did my shoulder hurt at work, any leisure activities would lead to the pain. I couldn’t rake leaves, run or exercise. I love to bake. Friends and family would ask me to bake desserts for them and that presented a challenge. I couldn’t even roll out cookie dough! Almost any type of movement using my upper body would bring on the pain.

I sought relief from my primary care doctor and was told I pulled muscle. As a result, they gave me pain patches and muscle relaxers and sent me home. This happened multiple times because the pain kept coming back. Eventually, I resorted to Advil.

At the health fair, the staff of Dynamic Health and Pain Management were the first to ever give me a clear insight to the cause of my shoulder pain. After coming in for my free consultation, I was told that I was born with missing vertebrae.

It took me just over a week to start feeling better. Now further along in my treatment, I feel great. It’s much easier to do my job without the pain. When I look down at my feet, I am amazed because I am walking straight! I pay attention to my balance and posture. I have even started to notice the way other people stand and carry themselves. Instead of people watching, I feet watch! I am back to baking and being active like I used to be. It’s amazing getting through an entire day without pain and feeling relaxed.

I am very satisfied with Dynamic Health and Pain Management. Therapy begins as soon as you walk in the door without sitting in a stuffy waiting room. The care is unmatched because it is all integrated. Normally, I would have to go to four different locations to get similar treatment.”

“In 1992 I suffered a spinal chord injury that left me paralyzed. The Doctors didn’t believe that I would ever walk again. I did physical therapy for one year to learn how to walk, however, I was numb on the left side of my body and weak on my right. I was also experiencing pain in my back and neck.

My wife Wilma had been suffering with debilitating migraines for years. I saw Dr. Cox on Charlotte Today and scheduled an appointment for her. As of today, she has been migraine free for 60 days.

Because of the different treatment measures, my wife encouraged me to give Dynamic Health & Pain Management a try. I knew that it worked for her, but wasn’t sure that they could help me since our issues are so different. After a month, I gave in and scheduled a consultation.

My hope when starting treatment was to strengthen my back so that I could exercise, which would in turn help to strengthen my leg so that I could get rid of the leg brace. Although the leg brace is intended to assist me, it has become a nuisance. I have to wear larger shoes, larger pants, getting in and out of a vehicle is difficult and the list goes on.

I am proud to say that I can go without wearing the leg brace for 6-8 hours each day and I don’t experience as much pain in my back or neck as I did before starting therapy. I am able to exercise regularly and don’t need as many injections to help ease the pain.

I am very excited about the potential outcome. I have been through so much, so I will continue to fight and recover so that I can be the healthiest I can be. I would tell anyone who may have lost hope, to just try. You don’t have to give up and you don’t have to live in pain.”
