This tip is from Richard Berkheiser. As a building contractor for over 30 years, I've done my share of heavy lifting. My lower back has given me problems over the years when it gets out of alignment. Many years ago, while working on a residential property, I had such an occurrence. The owner, seeing how much discomfort I was experiencing suggested I call her chiropractor, Dr. Berkowitz. In desperation I drove to her office without an appointment. Dr. Berkowitz was so gracious, she gave up her lunch hour to help me. To my surprise, she didn't rack or crack me, just gentle manipulation to realign my spine. I was able to walk out of her office much easier than I walked in. After a few more visits, my pain was gone. I've been a patient for many years now and Dr. Berkowtiz has always been able to straighten me out, pun intended. Seriously, if you're living with back pain, I'm here to tell you, you don't have to. Give Dr. B. a call. You'll be glad you did.
Dr. Berkowitz has been treating my back for over 10 years. I have a curvature in my spine and I dance. As a result, I have various issues with my back, neck, hips and knees. Sharon always corrects the problem with adjustment to the muscle or spine. She uses Directional Non-Force technique which is wonderful. She is an important part of my medical care team and keeps me dancing. I feel very fortunate to be in her care.
Dr Sharon Berkowitz is a winner.....a more than excellent chiropractor. we live in boston and spend our summers in ventnor. my sister has been going to dr sharon and recommended that i see her because my back was 'crooked' and my neck was very uncomfortable. i went to philadelphia 6-7 times this past summer and have never felt better. each visit with dr sharon improved my back and neck and at the end of the summer i went back to boston feeling terrific. no one in the boston area seems to understand how to fix my body like dr berkowitz! we came to the shore over the holidays and i went to philadelphia to have a session with dr sharon. i can't say enough about her- she is a wonderful healer and a lovely person.
Excellent Chiropractor!! I have been utilizing Dr Berkowitz service for 3 years now & have had extremely satisfiying results. She has expert knowledge of the human body when it comes to releaving pain or resolving other issues!
Extraordinary Chiropractor! Three months ago I was hospitalized with a ruptured L4 disc, unable to walk or stand without extreme pain. However, after just 6 sessions with Dr. Berkowitz I was free of pain, able to walk & stand, and, now, to dance! It is hard even for me to believe what she was able to do, so quickly, with just gentle touches. I have been to many excellent chiropractors in my life but there has been none to compare with Dr. Berkowitz and the remarkable Non-Directional Force Technique she uses. This kind, compassionate, skilled woman has given me back a life I thought I had lost!
My Highest Recommendation ! – I give Dr. Berkowitz my highest recommendation. I have never reviewed anything on the internet (restaurant, product, service, etc) but my life has been made so much better through Dr. Berkowitz treatments that I felt the need to recommend her services to others experiencing back pain.
About 3 years ago, the episodes of lower back stiffness & pain became more common and more serious to the point where every 4 months or so, I would have to stay in bed for 3 days because of the pain stiffness. I had tried numerous chiropractors - all of whom used heavy force to try to re-align my spine. Occasionally, this technique provided temporary pain relief but nothing ever lasted. Plus, I knew such violent motions on my spine could not be helping.
Since I began coming to Dr. Berkowitz about 2 years ago, my life has been changed. I have not experienced a single episode of severe back pain in that time. My initial 2-3 visits re-stabilized my spine and by coming in for a tune-up every 2 months, I've maintained that stability. I cannot say enough about how gentle Dr. B's technique is - you can barely notice she's manipulating anything at all!! I live a very active lifestyle, playing basketball and doing weight training 4-5 times a week. Without Dr. Berkowitz, there is no way I would be able to do that. I can't imagine there is a better chiropractor out there.
Pain Relief and Peace of Mind – I cannot recall who referred me, but THANK YOU!! I have been visiting Dr. Berkowitz for over 2 years for spinal adjustment and relief from intense neck strain due to past injury. Her assessment was extremely thorough and better still and following 2-3 weeks of 2x weekly visits, I "graduated" to a monthly visit. Her non-invasive touch and her explanation of the treatment, combined with exercises have made such a difference in how I feel! She has also coached me in matters of overall wellness. I am so pleased to have found a chiropractor whom I trust!
A good friend of mine suggested Dr. B because I was in back pain for many years. she had been in pain as well for other reasons and went to her. She healed us both. I cannot say enough about her gentle practice and noninvasive approach. As a fitness instructor and dancer I am enduring hours of movement and stress on my body. I have arthritis in my spine and feet and she maintains my ability to feel good.I have learned how to care for myself more and incorporate rest and drinking water into my life to imporve the way I feel. My relief continues to keep me coming less frequently. I can also say her bedside manner and half hour appointment is so pleasant, you leave feeling refreshed and relaxed, and feeling better . I had been experiencing back pain since I was in my teens as a dancer and then more so since I had children 17 years ago. Seeing many chiropractors, orthopedic dr.s, ER visits, yoga, and many other holistic approaches with no relief. Dr. B is the first person who has been able to help me in over 17 years.
I would be the president of her fan club!!!
Here's to a pain free life and feeling good!!! Thanks to Dr. B!!
! Best Chiropractic Care in the Region! – I send you this letter in response to the excellent care given me at your capable hands. The cycle of pain that I endured for months met its' match with your Directional Non-Force Technique.
What still amazes me is that while your treatment was without pain bone-crunching manipulation, the relief was absolute. My skepticism melted with the relaxation of the tendons, nerves and muscles in my neck. The brain-numbing headaches were quickly a thing of the past.
I must conclude that your total involvement with the cause of the problem through questioning every negative episode in my life regarding trauma gave you an insight that few doctors experience, simply because they do not take the time to uncover underlying injuries from years past.
As I am ready to move on with the program you have suggested to me, I felt it appropriate to thank you on paper for your care.
Your humor, your positivism, your knowledge and your talent will not soon be forgotten.
Although I live 100 miles from your office, I readily traveled the distance and the frequency of trips in order to experience the rapid recovery provided by your hands.
You may certainly use my thank you note as you see fit to help others as you have helped me.
I finally found relief! – I was very skeptical about chiropractic when I first went to see Dr. Berkowitz, but was in such pain from pregnancy-related back problems that I gave it a try. Going in, I had to walk a half block to catch a cab to her office, a process so painful it brought me to tears. Going out, I was substantially more comfortable. Every visit my pain level dropped, until six or seven visits later when I felt fine. I have seen her for "maintenance" ever since, and have steered several friends to her who also ended up finding help when they'd exhausted the traditional MD and physical therapy options.
