Deb Clay – Back Pain
My name is Deb Clay. I’ve been seeing Dr. Amir for about 18 months, although I’ve known him for a lot longer. Unfortunately, Dr. Amir was probably a last resort for me. I’d been through physical therapy. I was actually considering disability because my back was hurting so much and in so much pain I was not able to do my daily things that I love, like gardening and my grandchildren and fun stuff. So Dr. Amir finally got me to come in.
The roadblock, honestly, was out-of-network costs with my insurance, and I was going to be paying out of pocket. However, after seeing Dr. Meyer and being adjusted for 18 months, the cost of coming here was far less than the cost to me through insurance, time-wise, pain, and nothing else worked. So now I am investing in health and paying for health versus paying for medical care that does not work through my insurance company, which dictates what I do.
I now am in charge of my own health, and I am well. And I am very, very thankful that my son Eli can look at me and say, “Thank you Doc, for fixing mommy’s back, because we now are back to doing the things that we enjoy.”
So I’m very grateful. Even though it has been costly, it is far less than the cost I was putting out for care that did not work. So I’m a very grateful patient.

Bob Graybill – Pinched Nerve
Hi, I’m Bob. I’m 69 years old. I came here with a pinched nerve in my back, and I didn’t know what to expect. I never could touch my toes, and after four sessions, I could touch my toes. I feel better right now. I got great service here, they know what they’re doing, and I’ve enjoyed it.

Cindy Horan – Pain all over
Dr: How did you feel ten years ago when you started?
Cindy: Well, I read my success story. I’m looking at one right on the wall right now. And I read my success story a few months after I came to see you for the first time, and I had forgotten how bad I was. I ask you to take the knife out of my back and forgot about all the wrist pain and all the other pain I was dealing with and how just everything I did in life was a burden. Just going to the grocery store was a burden.
Dr: You are actually younger and healthier today, than ten years ago.
Cindy: I’m able to do way more than I could do ten years ago. That is absolutely correct.
Dr: Fantastic. And what do you think would have happened if you hadn’t been adjusted, what would that look like?
Cindy: I wouldn’t be here.

Jack Manuputy – Migraine Headache
Jack: Hi, I’m Jack Manuputy.
Barbara: And, I’m Barbara Manuputy, his wife.
Jack: And, I started seeing Dr. Amir in June of last year for wellness. I heard of Dr. Amir through my wife, Barbara. I’ll let you go ahead and speak now.
Barbara: I began seeing Dr. Amir in March of 2014 for migraines. And, I’m very happy to report that I’ve had a significant reduction in them and continue to see him with great expectations.
Jess McElhaney – Shoulder Pain and Vertigo
We came in because I was having severe shoulder pain for probably about six months, and episodes of vertigo probably about once a week. We ran a bunch of tests with other doctors and they couldn’t figure out anything that was going on with me. So we came in here and they did some x-rays and they found out where all my pain was coming from. I’ve been here for probably two weeks and I haven’t had any shoulder pain and I haven’t had any vertigo since then.
So I would highly recommend people going this route before any kind of medical route. Because with I know my husband just having back surgery, had he done this before, that maybe he wouldn’t had to go the route of having surgery. I know that if I hadn’t came in here, right now, that I probably would have had to within a couple of years myself.

Kyle Meese – Lower Back Pain, Hand Numbness, Sinuses
Coming to the chiropractor, I no longer have lower back pain, and my sinuses are cleared. My asthma attacks are lowered. I didn’t have one almost all winter. I generally have no numbness in my hands either, so it’s kind of nice.

Patient – Balance Mood, Pain Free, Restored Appetite, Sleep
“I was really skeptical about chiropractic.”
My mom has scoliosis. She has an S-curve in her spine, and she has been in pain since I was an infant. She couldn’t even pick me up after I reached the age of 3 or 4 because it was too hard for her to pick me up. So she started seeing the chiropractor, and I just remember how pain free she was. I had all kinds of issues myself, but I was really skeptical about chiropractic. It’s kind of weird to think that having someone crack your back is supposed to help you feel better.
Then I got all the scans and I have really bad subluxations. After I started going a few times a week, I could actually sleep through an entire night. I had a hard time sleeping before chiropractic. I also had eating disorders. My eating came back to normal. I was suicidal, but with chiropractic I started having a more balanced mood. There are all kinds of things I had no idea had anything to do with my spine or my brain.
I have gotten significantly better. I want to be alive now. I’m not in as much pain all the time. Constant pain was my life. That’s done for me.

Lynn Walters – Pain Free
When I first came to Mid Atlantic Chiropractic and I saw Dr. Rashidian, I had no hope of ever living a pain-free life. He changed my life. I’m now 56, and I feel like I did about 10 years ago. I said to my husband, I couldn’t believe it. And thank you Dr. Rashidian and your wonderful team, and God bless you all. Come! You can’t do anything any better than this for yourself.

Jay - Sucess!
You know, it's funny, because when I came in here for the first time, I thought, "Well, you know, this is just another chiropractic place. I've been to two of them. I might as well try this one. I've had the epidural shots. I've had everything." When you travel like I travel, which is 60,000 air miles a year, then your back's going to be hurting. You're gonna hurt down your back. And from the start here, I just seemed to pick up, and I gained confidence. Why? Because Dr. Amir goes, "Hey, you know, I'm going to give you exercises to do, Jay. If you don't do them, then you're not going to...nothing's going to help. You've gotta get out of here. You've gotta work every day on these, and eventually..." And I thought, "Well, you know, I've got balance problems. When I walk, I'm always holding onto something, afraid I'm gonna fall."
Well, you gain confidence when you come through the door here because you're taught, and then you're evaluated, and when you're evaluated you can see that you are improving. But to see, through the evaluation, what is happening, then you begin to gain that confidence. So you continue to work, and the harder you work, the more successful you are and the more confident you are in what you do. So I would recommend, and recommend to anybody, this is the place to really come through this door and give yourself a chance if you have problems and you're trying to get yourself better without the operations, without the needles, and everything like that. Take it here, and give it a shot.
Debbie - Sucess!
Interviewer: Okay, Debbie. What was it that made you want to come in for care?
Debbie: I have suffered with neck pain for about 7 to 10 years and I was just tired of feeling that way.
Interviewer: That's awful. Well, how have you been feeling since you started with us?
Debbie: I have felt excellent. From the first time I was adjusted, I did not have a headache that evening and was anticipating the headaches coming back, but they never did. It has been close to a month now. Pain-free.
Interviewer: Wow. And you were saying to Dr. Amir just a moment ago that you have more energy and you're sleeping better?
Debbie: Absolutely. More energy, no pain. It seems like the pain has just disappeared and it has turned into energy and now I can go back to doing exercising that I have not been able to do and having duration, which is really nice.
Interviewer: That's wonderful. Wonderful. And what would you say to someone who's thinking about starting with us?
Debbie: I would say do it because you owe it to yourself to feel better and it makes sense because when medicine just doesn't do it for you anymore, just having this adjustment, knowing that you're going to feel better is all that matters.
Interviewer: Wonderful. Thank you so much, Debbie.
Joyce - Sucess!
My name's Joyce Archer, and I'm here because our son, Joshua and his wife Maegan, recommended that we come. My son had always kind of walked like this, and he and Maegan were working for a couple six months or more with "Doctor R", I call him. And I've noticed that he can stand up straighter, he had much better health. An incredible walking testimony for both of them. And he actually gained two inches on his height when he discovered the curvature of his spine.
It's something that I've been wanting to do my whole life, is stand up straight. When I was 16, I was in an automobile accident. And I'm 66 now, so that's exactly 50 years. And I broke the windshield with my head, even though I had a seat-belt on. The tree was where I could touch it. I just put the whole car around a tree, and I looked through a broken windshield. And I had migraines forever after that. God healed me of the migraines, but I always had a sensation I just couldn't ever stand up straight. No matter what I did. I would exercise and pray all my life, "Lord, let me stand up straight."
And so I realized when I was out taking a walk the day after my first treatment, that I could stand up straight with no effort at all. And I thought the expense of coming here, and the time of coming here, was worth just that one thing. To be able to stand up straight. Like I am now is just adjusted, without that oppressive feeling of being pulled back down. I had no idea it was my spine. No idea at all.
So I'm grateful to this team and to the doctor. But I'm especially thankful for my son and his wife, who encouraged us to come. And I look forward to just getting in really better health all the way around. And it's just like a mountain of oppression has gone off me, by being able to do something I've wanted to do my whole life, which is just to stand up straight. Like I'm standing up straight now, that's what it looks like to you. But before, it would just feel like I would go like that immediately. Now I don't have that feeling anymore, so I'm free.
Tom - Sucess!
So I would guess, probably, for several years now I've been dealing with this cervical pain, and I had gone to medical doctors, military doctors, and had an MRI, x-rays, and all this. I remember the technician saying, "You know, this doesn't look good." And then, I was like, "Well, whatever, what doesn't look good?" And he's like, "Well, let me let you talk to a spinal specialist." So I went to the spinal specialist and they wanted to put plates and bolts in my neck, and I'm like, "No, there's gotta be a different way. I'm tired of being medicated. I'm tired of having pain pills. I'm tired of begging on prescriptions." You know, I was feeling like a drug addict just to get some pain relief, which I absolutely hate to begin with. I don't like pain medications. I don't like aspirins. I don't like anything for that matter. And, actually, a friend of ours gave me Dr. Rashidian's book, and I shelved it for a long time. Then I got to hurting real bad one day and I pulled the book out and I started reading about his dad and I'm like, "Wait a minute, you know, the same symptoms his dad had are the ones that I'm having."
Bottom line is, I was losing strength in my hands, I couldn't turn my neck to the left or the right, I was having pain in my lower back, in my hip. The radial layers of both hands, left and right, were going to sleep, I couldn't open lids up, I was losing strength, I couldn't play my guitar as much, posturing, and even sitting anywhere, hurt, sleeping at night hurt, everything hurt, and I just kinda got this feeling that everything was closing in. I was just, kind of, giving up. And, you know, I really feel this is a Godsend. That the Lord really just placed this chiropractic unit in my life.
So, after my second adjustment last week, and this is unadulterated, you know, I stood at the counter just overwhelmed and tears flowing out of my eyes and down my face and, you know, just feeling overwhelmed because I was pain free. And that was the first time in years that that has happened. Since that week, it's been a week now, a little over a week, so a week and a half, I guess, that the symptoms have still abated, meaning the radial layer in my hands is still not asleep, I'm not waking up with sore arms and sore hands. My hands aren't tingling. They're not asleep. There's no pain in my left bicep. The other day I was coming on base and I was able to crank my head to the left all the way back, like this, like I'm doing now, because I wasn't able to do that before. So, does it work? It absolutely does, and I just wanna see what God is gonna do in the future. And he'll provide each step of the way and I'm thankful for this place. And, there you go.
Teresa - Sucess!
Interviewer: So, Miss Teresa, what was it that made you want to start coming to get adjusted?
Teresa: Well, I was at hot mess actually. I had a lot of problems. My hip was in pain for a year, and I couldn't walk up and down stairs or get in and out of my car or roll over in bed without it hurting and without literally picking up my leg and lifting it. So, that was a big thing. And I had a stiff neck, bad range of motion, and knee problems.
Interviewer: Wow, and how have you been feeling since you've been getting adjusted?
Teresa: I was so shocked that literally, within two weeks all three of those problems were almost completely resolved.
Teresa: My hip problem was a yearlong problem, and it was gone in two weeks.
Interviewer: Wow that's so cool.
Teresa: I know.
Interviewer: What would you say to someone who's thinking about getting adjusted?
Teresa: I would say absolutely do it. I had no idea that you could get resolutions so quickly and almost so completely, so fast.
Interviewer: Thank you so much.
Woodrow - Sucess!
Hi, my name is Marcie Dove, and this is my son, Woodrow. And we came to Mid Atlantic Chiropractic because Woodrow has asthma and the pediatrician wanted to continuously put steroids into him, and my husband and I didn't agree. So, we found Doctor Rashidian, and he has been able to make it so Woodrow has gone through an entire winter and a switch into the spring and has not been sick, not had to go to the emergency room, and has not been on any steroids since we started with Doctor Rashidian. I would highly recommend coming here, and bringing your children, as well. Thank you.
Shelby - Sucess!
Interviewer: Okay, Shelby, tell me, what was it that made you want to start coming in to get adjusted?
Shelby: My headaches.
Interviewer: Okay. And how have you been feeling since you've been getting adjusted?
Shelby: I've been feeling a lot better.
Interviewer: Cool. And what would you say to someone who was thinking about getting in for care?
Shelby: Chiropractors are great. They make you feel a lot better.
Interviewer: Awesome. Thank you so much, Shelby.

Marci - Sucess
Well, I started chiropractic care because I was having pains in my arms and hands, wasn't able to lift anything, grasp anything, and it was very, very painful. I couldn't do everyday things. Since I've been coming to Dr. Rashidian, my mobility has been restored. I can lift things. I can do normal things without even thinking. So, I'm feeling a 110% better than when I started, and I would recommend to anyone who wants to feel better in your life, to do the normal things you normally do, come see Dr. Rashidian.
