I came to Clear Purpose Chiropractic after attending a ‘Wellness’ seminar at Sony Pictures Entertainment, where I work. Since becoming a massage therapist in March 2004, I have been hyper-critical of my body’s optimal performance and my posture. Upon completion of the seminar I got a good feeling about Dr. Yarmand’s abilities and I was interested in the topics he covered in his lecture. I decided to make an appointment that day.
My family has a history of back pain and surgery. I myself want neither of these. I initially made the appointment to see Dr. Yarmand as a preventive measure. I do not have back pain, but the way my posture has been degrading I knew that discomfort wasn’t far away. I had been to Chiropractors before, when I was much younger. I never felt they had a plan of recovery or a plan of anything for that matter. To me they were all about “pain management,” and not about full recovery of spine function. One of the big points that helped me sign up for Dr. Yarmand’s recovery plan was the structured recovery. He had a plan broken down by length and number of visits. He also takes X-rays to track the progress of his patients. This is very important to me. He strives towards healing his patients, fixing them once and for all.
Since starting the program I feel taller and my posture feels like it is improving everyday. Dr. Yarmand puts a lot of emphasis on patients being involved in their own recovery. I feel that that is the only way someone can improve their condition, by really believing in it and sticking to the program, especially when the home traction starts. That is the real test of how much you want to improve the health of your spine and life in general.
Dr. Yarmand also keeps patients involved with on-going education of the spine. Every visit he tells me different information in regards to spinal health and function. He also hosts a monthly program called ‘Half Hour to Health’ to help educate his patients on making healthier choices in their daily lives. Apart from everything else the atmosphere in the office is wonderful. This does not feel like a medical office, it feels more like a friend’s house.
Thank you for helping me prevent the pain I have seen so many of my family members suffer through.
Last summer, I was suddenly in excruciating pain that made walking, even short distances, almost impossible. I went the traditional route and visited my doctor who told me to just stretch, ice my hip and wait a few weeks for it to go away. The pain was interrupting even the most basic of my everyday activities. As a fairly young and very active person, not being able to even walk short distances was very difficult emotionally as well as physically. I couldn’t just sit and wait.
A coworker mentioned that she was seeing a chiropractor and I should go in for a consultation, so I did. Dr. Yarmand really listened to what I was saying. After that initial consultation, Dr. Yarmand developed a specific plan of treatment for ME and what he saw on my X-rays. It wasn’t just some generalized fix-all. I really appreciated that he wanted to fix the cause of pain, not just make the pain go away.
Within a few weeks of treatment, I felt like I had my life back. I could walk again. A few weeks later, I was actually pain-free for large parts of the day. It has been a slow process, but almost seven months later, I actually feel better than I have in years. And, as an added bonus, out of the blue my asthma symptoms have disappeared!
I feel like Dr. Yarmand has given me control of my body. I don’t need painkillers for the pain of everyday walking and I don’t need medicines to control my asthma. I went hiking the other day with friends and they commented on how far I’ve come. I truly believe my progress would not have been possible without Clear Purpose Chiropractic.
I have had chiropractic care since I was eight and I hated it. After every visit I felt sick and the chiropractor was rude. I dreaded going, but he was supposed to be the best, so my parents made me stick with it. The back pain slowly got better, but because of my inconsistency and finding any excuse under the sun to get out of it, I finally convinced them that I should stop going. Although still tingling, at this point I much preferred to swallow a few pills.
It seemed that no matter what I did to alleviate the pain it would come back as fierce as ever; nothing seemed to get rid of it. My asthma was terrible and I was constantly sick. I was consistently on one form of anti-inflammatory or antibiotic. I had terrible headaches that would last for days. I was cranky, irritable, always in pain, or on medication.
Then I got meningitis, I just woke up one morning and couldn’t move. I was taken straight to the hospital. Later I found out it was an infection of the fluid surrounding the spinal cord and the brain. Finally I got better, but the back pain was immobilizing. The only treatment I got was, “Which type of pain medication seems to be working best for you?”
I am now a true believer in chiropractic care, there is just no question. I knew that my spine is the information super-highway for my body and that chiropractic care would help, but I always found excuses to delay any treatment.
After my previous experience, I thought office visits would be long and tedious and I’d hate going anyway. So why bother? Then, I was thinking about what a pain it is, having to lean sideways to drive or sit in my deck in order to alleviate the discomfort of sitting up straight. Suddenly I saw the sign “Clear Purpose Chiropractic” while driving. I went in and met a lady by the name of Tejal. I thought, look at this beautiful pregnant lady. When I was pregnant I could barely walk but here she is bouncing around with enthusiasm and energy. That’s what did it. I made my first appointment… it was the best decision I’ve made in years. The office is comfortable, the treatment is easy, and the payoff is amazing, I’ve been a lot healthier since I started coming to Clear Purpose. I am now 24 years old and everyday I feel like I am in better shape!
Not only did Clear Purpose find an easy schedule for my office visits but they also helped me with a payment plan that fit my budget. Thanks Dr. Yarmand! Thanks Clear Purpose!
Four months ago I began my treatment. About a month after I began, I told Dr. Yarmand I had heartburn and took medication everyday to control it. Dr. Yarmand asked me if I would be willing to stop taking the medication if alternative treatment was available. He then told me about some stretches in the treatment could help stop the heartburn.
I stopped taking the pills, it has now been three months since I stopped taking medication for my heartburn and I haven’t had it since. I can eat whatever I want without the fear of heartburn.
The treatment Dr. Yarmand is giving me is also helping with my back problems. In my opinion, the doctor’s treatment has helped me with my posture and back pain as well as remedy my heartburn.
On any given week I am on a plane for a minimum of 10 hours. After the first hour I would get stiff. By the end of each flight my back was so tight that it felt like I pulled a muscle. I also have had problems falling asleep and staying asleep. These were my main complaints a year ago when I walked into Clear Purpose Chiropractic. After the orientation, I realized that I had to add chiropractic maintenance to my health routine and that success was up to me. I challenged myself to be at optimal health in one year. Once I made chiropractic care a weekly regimen and regularly incorporated stretching hourly on long plane rides into my day, I felt the success. Because of what Dr. Yarmand has taught me about how my spine and overall health are all connected, I am sleeping better, feeling better, and living better.
I now walk or run to my weekly adjustments as part of my normal health regiment. I even bring my best friend along for the ride. I wonder if Clear Purpose will consider cute, fluffy dog chiropractic adjustments.
Thanks Dr. Yarmand!
My mother and I came to Clear Purpose Chiropractic in June of 2006. My mother initially came for treatment on her back. Immediately after, I to sought treatment for myself. I’ve always been a firm believer in chiropractic care and that a healthy spine is necessary for one’s well being.
After having my first child, my body was a little bit out of whack and I lost clarity and ability to concentrate. I felt like I was doing my daily routine but out of it, like an out-of-body experience. My mother, on the other hand, had pain from years of work-related stress and injury.
After the first visit I already felt more clear and alert. After continual visits, it felt like I had never had any problems in the first place. My mother has been feeling a lot better since her chiropractic treatment. There is nothing like a severe back injury and it is very hard to treat.
It’s been almost 9 months and we both feel our health and livelihood have improved. There is nothing better than chiropractic care when you want healing from within and strive for longevity. It is better than medication that will only mask the pain for a temporary relief.
We have had a wonderful experience with Clear Purpose Chiropractic. We never thought that going to a chiropractor would be so rewarding. The atmosphere at Clear Purpose Chiropractic is wonderful; the staff isn’t like ordinary staff, they became our friends.
We went frequently for awhile and that built up our relationship with the Clear Purpose Chiropractic members. We never thought that we would have such a close relationship with a chiropractor, his wife, and their cute little baby girl. They really made the whole experience for us very comfortable and relaxing.
After going to Clear Purpose we started noticing changes, we weren’t having as many aches and pains in our backs, making our jobs much easier to handle. We felt more energized throughout the day. Our overall back pain was decreased by at least 75%, which is very good. We are very happy with our results and we recommend Clear Purpose Chiropractic to all of our friends and family.
Although being a little skeptical at first (with my 2 year old daughter, even though I have seen a chiropractor for years). When Alice decided that it was her turn, I was a little anxious, but she just popped right up on the table, laid down, and took a deep breath while Dr. Yarmand made her giggle with all the “firecrackers”.
Thanks to Dr. Yarmand, my daughter is one of the healthiest children in her school. She has just turned 3 years old – and getting sick at this age seems, for most children, to be part of the package. She has not been on antibiotics since seeing Dr. Yarmand and she never complains about her back hurting. I don’t know what it is, but when she gets home from her chiropractic visit she has the best naptime and wakes up in a beautiful mood – which of course, I can’t get enough of!
For My little angel, I wouldn’t want anything but the best.
Welcome to Clear Purpose, welcome to the best.
