Chronic Neck pain, Lower Back pain
(Just adding more testimonials to justify the headings on this forum)
I had been suffering from ‘chronic’ neck and lower back pain on my left side and periodic jaw pain from a problem TMJ for the past 40 years. Over these years the pain had on occasion almost reduced me to tears, and much time and money has been spent visiting doctors, dentists, chiropractors and physiotherapists - with it must be said some temporary relief, but the problem and pain remained.
I visited Dr. Amir to see what he could make of my situation, frankly not expecting to achieve any real improvement in my condition.
Dr. Amir examined and tested me and advised that the cause of my pain was that my jaw was out of alignment and this then threw the rest of my skeleton ‘out’. Also there was considerable orthodontic realignment required for my teeth in both upper and lower jaws. Probably a two year job!
The immediate action was to fit an upper jaw brace to align my bite. This greatly relieved pain and shortly thereafter my Atlas vertabrae was aligned properly and this bought further improvement to the pain levels.
Over a period of around 2 ½ years I wore various different mouth braces /pieces and carried out regular jaw exercises, and of course visited Dr. Amir on a regular basis.
The result is a much better looking and feeling set of teeth, a jaw that is in alignment, an overall more energetic and strong feeling, and the relief of pain.
It has been a long road, but thanks to Dr. Amir very well worth it.
