What Our Customers Say About Us
Dr Koppel and Valerie,
Dr Koppel and Valerie,
It is with sincere thanks in writing testimonial that I express my deep level of gratitude, mere words cannot express the difference you made to my life. I came into your office a broken shell of a person, and you spent a lot of time and energy healing me, in effect “giving me my life back”
I’m humbled and appreciative for all you’ve done on my behalf. I will never forget what you have done, I’m wearing the smile you gave back to me.
A heartfelt thank you for everything that you’ve done to give my health back to me- You are a gift to my life, and I will treasure you both always.
On April 1 2017 I was stopped at a red traffic light, and hit from behind by someone who was texting and driving and never hit her brakes. After the EMT’s and Police left, I made an appointment the same day with Dr Koppel at Chiroacuhealth, had x-rays, and light treatment, I had injuries to my neck, shoulder, torso and hip. My neck had severe whiplash, and from being tossed front to back on initial impact, I lost the curve in my neck, and sustained 2 herniated discs and 2 bulging discs effecting my neck & torso. Upon impact of the accident, my head was turned to the right side ( I must have been looking at the radio) so my head was permanently turned to the right side which was another necessary correction.
Symptoms experienced from day one were: from 1st day- I had mental break down- crying every 60 minutes over a period of 2 days, and At times constantly thirsty, and at times it feels like my brain shakes I was unable to sleep still due to severe pain in my neck, as well and shoulders, chest, and arms. I also had numbness and weakness in my arms and fingers, I experienced left hip and left leg pain, low back pain. My muscles in my neck and shoulders feel achy, hard or knotted up. I have constant Pain, My neck is stiff, and have constant headaches at the base of the skull that radiate towards the forehead I have Loss of mobility and loss of range of motion in my left arm. I am dropping things with my hands. I have confusion, and no concentration, or ability to retain information or process my thoughts at times, I was constantly tired, but cannot sleep thru the night. .. I would lose my balance while standing up and then righting myself. Difficulty with driving turning head. ( holding steering wheel ) I was extremely Limited as to effect day to day activities of showering, getting dressed, ( not doing any cooking or cleaning, laundry, or daily chores such as shopping or driving, as ( holding steering wheel with both hands was impossible ) cannot go to a hairdresser, or dentist because of my neck & shoulder pain My Husband helps do all the daily chores that I could no longer do ( for months) I noticed difficulty sitting ( head & neck get tired)… I was mostly laying down every day. I had an MRI, and saw a neurologist who suggested I would be a very good candidate for surgery, We decided on an alternative course of treatment – “Posture Correction”. and we started traction in-office at Dr Koppel’s office which gave immediate relief. I made consistent progress, and posture corrective treatment gave me hope to have pain relief and increase mobility ( which was immediate) and I am happy to say they gave me my life back. I was always an active person, and it was both depressing and debilitating to go thru these severe injuries. Thank you for saving my life, I am back to work, and happy, I have my active life again- paddle-boarding, yoga, working out at the gym, riding my bike, swimming, and walking the beach. ….. happy to add -I sleep thru the night- pain free. I will always have a special place in my heart for ChiroAcuHealth!
Being my very first time I can honestly say Valerie and Dr. Koppel were both amazing! I felt very comfortable from the beginning. I had 32 needles placed in various areas and not one hurt. Most I didn’t even feel as they were placed. Before he finished placing them I had already begun getting very relaxed. By the time he was finished I was pretty much asleep yet aware. The 45 minutes that passed until he removed them felt like 20 minutes. I had to take my time getting off the table. I was that relaxed. Driving home I was much more patient with traffic, could breathe thru my nose easier, my daily craving for fast food was gone. Today, the day after, I even cooked for myself; scallops and flash cooked power greens in coconut oil with spices. I already have my 2nd appointment set up for next week and look forward to it! Thank you Valerie and Dr. Koppel for an amazing experience!
2nd visit in, I feel great… I feel relaxed… a lot better…
I tried all of the tactics, stretching, yoga and all that and none of it was working… I haven’t really dealt with meds, worrying about toxicity… I went with acupuncture, and in just one visit, my pain was gone… and I keep coming back and it’s better and better.
thank you for helping to reduce, and at times, alleviate, my back pain with the chiropractic intervention you gave me over the three sessions… For my sleep apnea, the acupuncture was very successful. I sleep better now and feel rested plus it appears to have improved my foot neuropathy. I actually have feels again in my toes!
How does it feel?
Wonderful. I love how it stretches me stretches me and makes me feel comfortable, better than my bed… Prior to this treatment mornings were my worse. When I get up I can just get up and move. It’s a breathe of fresh air, feel like I have more energy.
Picking up my shoes off the floor was a big thing…just get up and just walk it’s like a toddler walking for the first time…Little things but BIG stuff for me… I can’t say enough…how I feel so much better.
DRX9000, it’s a wonderful machine. Really helped by back! The DRX9000 are a god send. People here are great. Consider it if you have any back problems. I have 5 herniated discs in my lumbar. I am 90%.
