Testimonials From Clients
Dr. Addison has been a godsend! In the past few years I experienced several medical setbacks that affected my once healthy and active lifestyle which included being a part-time certified group fitness instructor. A tumor resection back in 2011 resulted in me being temporarily paralyzed on one side of my body, five weeks of radiation therapy the following year and then several months ago emergency surgery for insertion of a pacemaker for my heart at forty three years old! I was forced to make some lifestyle changes. Migraines with auras that affected my vision, aching muscles and joints and difficulty sleeping made me feel tired all the time. This affected my ability to concentrate work and my body could no longer workout at the fitness level that I was accustomed to. Gone were the days of teaching fitness classes six days a week. I went from doctor to doctor, endocrinologists, neurologists, and a rheumatologist who did rigorous tests and finally concluded I had fibromyalgia. All tried to treat the aches and pains I was feeling by prescribing numerous medications which didn’t do much but give me unwanted side effects. Since bloodwork and scans turned up normal, my primary care physician wanted to prescribe sleeping pills and anti-depressants. Pain would somewhat subside when I found relief through natural muscle relaxant pills, acupuncture, massage and regular chiropractic care, but the relief was always temporary.
Fast forward to today. It has been a couple of months since my first visit but the changes I have experienced have been astounding. Headaches have been minimal and much less severe so I have completely stopped taking my migraine medications. The muscle and joint pains have significantly subsided thus I have stopped taking my muscle relaxants as well. I have been able to sleep more soundly and have much more energy throughout the day! Plus, I have been able to workout at a higher intensity level and be more confident when I teach my fitness classes; my body recovers much more easily instead of being completely fatigued by the early evening. I no longer have to spend weekends camped out in my bedroom from exhaustion and pain.
What a blessing Dr. Addison's expertise has been. I highly recommend others see what Dr. Addison and The Specific Chiropractic Center can do to make a difference in your quality of living.
(skeptical at 1st) I wanted to see if treatment would help me with pains from sciatica,lower slip disc and arthritis in back. After a few adjustments, I noticed a significant decrease of pain and also noticed that I wasn't feeling chronic tiredness. I can carry my grandchildren (20lbs or a little more) with only slight pain. He's also very knowledgeable and he is very easy to talk to about my treatment. He's an asset to Kauai and the people who seek his treatment.
I have had migraines for many years and thought I had learned to cope with them. Then last year, out of the blue, I started getting a different type of headache every day! It was a throbbing pain that started every morning. Being a registered nurse I was worried about what might be causing these new types of headaches. I had a brain MRI and the neurologist said there was nothing wrong with my brain. He prescribed a pain medication and said I should come back if I had any changes or other concerns. Of course I was relieved there was no tumor or abnormality, but I was also frustrated and feeling helpless that there was no obvious path to wellness for me to follow.
It was around that time I had heard from a friend about Dr. Addison Bulosan at The Specific Chiropractic Center. I decided to make an appointment and see if there was any scientific basis backing up claims of resolving symptoms such as mine for many people.
To make a long story short, the results were practically instantaneous. Since my first treatment over 3 months ago I have not had a single one of those relatively new headaches. I didn’t expect any change to my migraines, believing they were hormonally triggered, but to my surprise they are not as bad as they used to be. I now manage my migraines on less than half the dose of medication and am able to function normally since the lower dose correlates to diminished medication side effects.
I highly recommend Dr. Adddison Bulosan and am thrilled to be his patient. Thank you, Dr. Addison, for opening a clinic on Kauai.
I believe it is important for people in my family to receive this kind of personal chiropractic care and really incorporate it as a daily habit. While under care Dr. Addison has helped me become conscious with my health, help me with my joint pain, helped me eat healthier, and get me back to exercising. I never been to a chiropractor so it was unique to have personalized and specific care just for me.
I know there are people out there who are apprehensive or afraid to try chiropractic care, and all I have to say is that it works! It’s unique as it is designed specifically for you, it’s an upfront approach to health with positive outcomes.
Addison is very caring and compassionate practitioner and I have enjoyed working with him. I recommend him! I have had chronic headaches my whole life and have seen a wide range of practitioners over the years. Since I started seeing him I went from having 3 headaches a week to 2 in the last 4 months!! We have not completed my treatment yet, and am confident we will have 100% resolve by the end.
I had experienced severe neck pain and waited hoping it would go away. After many weeks of prescription pain medication and not getting any relief. His treatment plan he had for me was straightforward and he gave me Hope. I trusted him with my care and he delivered! After a few visits I was already feeling better. I was still experiencing some pain but had more energy and was hopeful it would go away. Addison suggested after my Friday appointment that I rest all weekend. I followed his advice and by Sunday morning I was Pain FREE! Addison has improved my health by 100%. I am so Grateful to him and his outstanding chiropractic care. I feel so Blessed to have found him and will continue my chiropractic care to improve my whole well-being.
