Iâ€™ve been living with fibromyalgia for 12 years and it has made my life miserable. Iâ€™ve seen many different types of physicians for my chronic pain, and no one has been able to help me like Dr. Howard Friedman.
Dr. Friedman goes by Dr. Howard and his specific gentle chiropractic approach to health and healing helps severe and chronic condition for all ages including geriatrics. He can manipulate any joint from head to toe, but he doesnâ€™t just manipulate my joints to where I feel better. He truly cares for his patients and understands about the body. He doesnâ€™t just want to cure the symptoms, he wants to solve the problem.
Dr. Howard says, â€śThe benefits to any adjustment is to help the body to function as close to 100 percent.â€ť But sometimes the pain stems from another part of your body and this is what heâ€™s so good atâ€”finding the problem.
His cranial expertise has helped my Temporomandibular Joint and Muscle Disorders (TMJDs) which has caused me great pain for 25 years. TMJDs refers to a complex and poorly understood set of conditions that can cause pain in the area of the jaw joint and associated muscles and/or problems using the jaw. TMJDs can affect a person's ability to speak, eat, chew, swallow, make facial expressions, and even breathe.
Dr. Howard â€™s oldest active patient is 98 years young. His youngest patient is 5 weeks, but he also works with toddlers, teenagers, prenatal mothers and midwives for prenatal and neonatal care.
His favorite success story is adjusting a woman throughout her pregnancy. â€śFrom the time her water broke to her delivery was less than one hour--she and baby are doing great,â€ť said Friedman.
Another patient is a 3 year old who had chronic ear infections and their physician wanted to put tubes in his ears, but instead the parents went to see Dr. Howard and after a few chiropractic sessions, the infections stopped. In fact, the toddler sleeps during his visits.
â€śIâ€™ve adjusted more than 200 babies,â€ť said Friedman. â€śThe adjustment for babies and toddlers are far less aggressive than adults. Itâ€™s as light as the touch of the fingers--Itâ€™s not hard force at all.â€ť
When Dr. Howard became a father, he adjusted his new baby girl within one half hour of her birth. He balanced her sacrum and cranium, opened up the pallet and began the sucking reflex so that she could quickly and easily begin breast feeding.
Itâ€™s always a pleasure to visit Dr. Howard's office. His staff is warm, professional and caring. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is so easy to talk to. He cares about people and their wellness. His chiropractic care has helped me in so many ways: carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ, hip problem, back problems, neck problems, sinus problems, tendonitis and migraines. Before I went to see him, I felt like a mess and now Iâ€™m sleeping more and feeling better.
Feeling healthier has inspired me to begin a regimen of YAS Yoga (created by Kimberly Fowler) and now Iâ€™m getting stronger and enjoying my life more.
Dr. Howard Friedman now has 20 years experience and he loves what he does. â€śItâ€™s so fulfilling to help people improve their health with quick results,â€ť said Friedman.
