Headache Case #01

Testimony from patient Alan G., USC graduate,

resident of Encino in California

“Before visiting Dr. Zhao, I had a headache every waking minute.  Other neurologists I saw told me that chronic daily headaches were the most difficult to treat, and offered me little hope.  Visiting Dr. Zhao was like a breath of fresh air.  He was completely confident that he could help me to get better, and for the first time I felt hope.  Today I am pain-free.”

Headache Case #03

Anonymous

“I have had frequent headaches since I was five years old and have had migraine headaches almost daily for the last thirty years since my hysterectomy.  I have tried numerous treatments without success and was taking triptan medication daily, which may not be appropriate to use at my age.  After two months of Dr. Zhao’s treatments, my headaches are now completely under control and my quality of life is greatly improved.  Dr. Zhao and his staff are so friendly and personable that it makes the visits to his office enjoyable.”

Testimony from patient Erin N., computer specialist,

resident of Shadow Hills in California:

“When I came to see Dr. Zhao in January 2006 I had been suffering from debilitating migraines for over 2 years.  My migraines would keep me in bed for days at a time and the only relief would come from a dark room and sleep.  Through a process of headache education, relaxation, medicine and hormone therapy he has helped me break the cycle of my migraines.  I am very grateful to Dr. Zhao for helping me. “

Headache Case #23

Testimony from patient Phyllis W., school principal, resident of El Protal in California:

When I first came to Dr. Zhao, my headaches were interfering with all aspects of my life.  Over the period of treatment, Dr. Zhao helped me to see what factors were behind my headaches and what adjustments I needed to make.  Through a combination of medications, greater awareness of dietary and life style stressors, meditation and acupuncture, I have improved dramatically.  I feel like I—rather than my headaches, am in control of my life.  Thank you, Dr. Zhao!

Headache Case #31

Testimony from patient Christina C, teacher and artist, resident of Boston Massachusetts:

“When I first visited Dr. Zhao, I have been having almost daily migraines for a year. I couldn’t have a full time job because I missed so much work. Other doctors told me they didn’t know what else they could do for me. After my treatment I have had a huge reduction in migraines. I now have a manageable migraine once every 2 weeks. This has completely changed my life, and I feel happier and healthier. I will be able to attend graduate school this fall thanks to his tireless efforts to help me regain control of my head.

P.S. The support staff are amazing and really do provide the support you need to complete treatment. Good luck!”

Headache Case #32

“I have a familial history of chronic migraines. So, following three auto accidents as a passenger in 1964, I was misdiagnosed as having adult-onset migraines. I was never without a headache, chronic neck pain, and a punching sensation in my left eye. The headache and pain caused me to lose many jobs. It was a depressing, negative influence in my daily life.

In my attempts to alleviate the constant pain, I sought help throughout the medical field. I was treated by many M.D.s, neurologists, TMJ specialists, physiotherapists, chiropractors, in emergency rooms, with holistic treatments, and at various headache clinics. Over the years I tried more than 35 medications – some of them extremely powerful. But I had no relief – until I was treated by Dr. Zhao.

He listened closely while I recounted my medical history. He asked very specific questions about my pain’s location, intensity, types of occurrence. He reviewed my X-rays and MRIs. Then he explained that my pain originated from a bulged disc and impinged nerves in my upper spine. That was the source of my severe headaches and neck pain. We started treatment and the severe pain began to fade. I got my life back. I’m able to do things that I had abandoned due to the headache. Due to my bulged disc, I will always have some headaches, but now they are manageable and I can actually live a more normal life thanks to Dr. Zhao.”
