I went to Dr. Patel as a result of upper back pain from moving heavy furniture. It had been annoying me for months. He referred me to another doctor for a spinal manipulation since he suspected that I had some vertebrae that were twisted. The spinal manipulation fixed my pain almost immediately.

I had ALOT of pain and decreased mobility because of arthritis in my sacroiliac joints and trocanter bursitis. I was very reluctant to have injections and Dr. Patel was understanding and patient despite the fact that in the end, that treatment made a world of defference. After several months of trying more conservatie treatments and significant pain and reduced mobilty, I finally agreed to the injection. The proceedure was a breeze and I am 80% better and able to do so many things.
