C.M.,W. Sayville, N.Y.
I approached my appointment with Dr. D’Brant with some trepidation after having experienced severe pain in my neck, shoulders and back for almost 3 weeks preceding the appointment. No lie- it was the pain (a 10 on a scale of 0 to 10!) and the fact that I increasingly could not move that got me in the door, as I tend to have a somewhat avoidant streak re: all things medical. It was the best decision I have made in recent history. It was clear that Dr. D’Brant was being very thorough in his examination. He asked many questions to understand what I was experiencing, and explained every step of his treatment as he proceeded: what he would do, why he would do it, what it may feel like. Dr. D’Brant encouraged me to express any discomfort I was having during the session, and continued to check in with me throughout the process. Some relief came almost immediately and that continued throughout the session. Dr. D’Brant spent time afterwards talking to me about his observations of my body, recommendations for the future and actions I could take to maximize my health and comfort. When I entered the office, it was with severely limited range of motion in my neck, and one shoulder literally lower than the other. I left the office being able to move freely, and nearly pain-free. My pain was a 2 on the scale of 0 to 10! Since that time I hardly have any pain but I do have some stiffness and occasional soreness when I move certain ways that lets me know that I am not done with this problem, but as Dr. D’Brant let me know the pain is only the symptom of the underlying imbalance.
I know it was both the physical treatment I received and Dr. D’Brant’s gentle manner that helped me feel so much better. I am looking forward to my next appointment!
