To Whom It May Concern:
I have suffered with migraine headaches for longer than I care to remember, at least twenty years. I have been to see many doctors, had many tests, taken many drugs, changed my diet, changed my pillow, you name it and have tried it. None of this has had any significant effect on my headaches and they continued to get more frequent and more severe.
I finally got to a point where I decided that I was going to find someone that could help me, regardless of whether it would be covered by insurance or not. I first met Dr. Jose Veliz in December 2007. He recommended a series of treatments on the SpineMED decompression table in conjunction with a single medication taken at bedtime. This replaced the handful of medications that I had been taking throughout the day to manage the pain and which also had been destroying my stomach.
While I was skeptical, I was also at a point where I would have tried almost anything. The results were apparent even after the first treatment. The concept was that my neck had become compressed and was causing the migraines. The machine alternately applies and removes a "stretching" to your neck thereby decompressing your vertebra. By the second or third treatment, my headaches were gone and have not returned and it has been almost exactly one year now. My regimen consisted of a series of twenty treatments taken at a rate of three per week. Since then, I have had one treatment per month for maintenance.
I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Veliz, his staff and the SpineMED decompression machine for anyone that is experiencing the pain of migraine headaches. The treatments are painless, relaxing and effective.
