“I came to The Pain Laser Clinic a few months ago as a result in looking for an alternative pain treatment to my severe ankle injury. Over the years I had gone to several doctors who always recommended the same treatment, Pills, Pills & more Pills or maybe surgery!! On any given day my ankle pain would be an 8 or 9 maybe an 11. I gave up trail running as a result. After doing some research and a Groupon voucher, I took a chance in called and booked an appointment at the Pain Laser Clinic. I met with Dr. Dickman and discussed my condition and formulated a treatment protocol. After my first treatment, there was a noticeable difference. It may not be a huge drop in pain, but 7-8 was a good start. I was amazed. Today I have completed 75% of treatment and I’m down to a 2-3. The Pain Laser Clinic has been a key in helping me cope with my injury.”
“After enduring daily pains for several years, it’s been wonderful to enjoy pain free days. And the treatments are so quick and painless. Back to pain free golf!! Thank you, Dr. Dickman!”
“I first met Dr. Dickman on 8-12-14 to examine the arthritis in my back and discuss my treatment options and what he felt he could do to relieve my chronic pain. Dr. Dickman adjusted by pelvis back into place while performing Laser treatment on 8-12-14 & 8-14-14. After my treatment on 8-18-14 I knew that this was the treatment I was looking and hoping for. By the end of the protocol, my condition had improved to the point that I am now back to playing golf 4 days a week & feeling better than I have felt in a long time! Thank you Dr. Dickman!”
“I came to see Dr. Dickman about 1 year ago when I had severe hip and leg pain. I already had one hip replacement a year earlier and did not want surgery for another hip replacement. I was hoping that the Laser treatment could help with the pain, but more so help to stabilize and prevent the condition from getting worse. I had about a dozen treatments on both my hip and also upper leg. I started to feel relief from the pain in about 2 or 3 treatments and by the end of all treatments I had very little to no pain at all. I have maintained my improvement with month interval treatments just to keep me pain free and my condition from getting worse.”
“For 46 years, I have been in pain. The pain had escalated until it was unbearable. The pain pills did nothing for me anymore. I was really suffering. For years I was told I walked like a duck, waddling back and forth, and bending all over from the pain I felt. Then my son introduced me to Dr. Rob Dickman. He recommended laser therapy. After years of trying to mitigate the pain without success, I was skeptical anything would work. But, I decided to give it a try. He began doing laser treatments on me. After several sessions, I came home excited and told my husband ‘watch me’ as I walked straight and without pain. You can¹t even imagine the joy we experienced at that moment. During the treatment, I had an accident and Dr. Dickman was there for me. I had five cracked ribs and my face was bruised and blackened. These injuries healed so rapidly thanks to the laser treatments. I would like to thank Dr. Dickman for all he has done for me. It¹s a better life living it without pain.”
“As a 72 year old avid golfer, I have had chronic low back pain for years. Even though Chiropractic adjustments have helped, I still had to take pain meds to get through a round of golf. Over the counter meds had no affect on the pain so my doctor prescribed 800 mg Motrin. Even after taking one pill at the start of a round, I had to take a second pill after 3.5 to 4 hours. Slowly, that medication stopped providing sufficient relief so that I could enjoy the game. My doctor then prescribed Hydrocodone or Vicodin pain medication. This allowed me to play with minimal pain but my game suffered as a result. After hearing about Dr. Dickman’s Pain Laser Clinic, I decided to give it a try. As a skeptic of any procedure that claims to eliminate pain, I was pleasantly surprised when after four treatments I had gone from a level 10 pain to a level 5. After seven treatments, the low back pain was virtually gone. Now when I am playing golf two to three times a week, I don’t even think of taking a pain pill and my game is beginning to improve as a result. I have recommended the Pain Laser Clinic to many of my friends and I would highly recommend it to anyone that is suffering from chronic pain.”
“A friend had advised me about Dr. Dickman’s Pain Laser Clinic. I have been under Chiropractic care for many years from other Chiropractors; however, the pain I was experiencing in my hip was something new for me. The Laser treatment was something new to me, but my pain level was so extreme I thought I’d try it. Dr. Dickman was very professional in explaining what and how he was going to treat my problem. I stuck with his approach and I was amazed at the results. The pain in my hips was reduced significantly. I have since moved out of the San Jose area, and wish he was still treating me. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Dickman to everyone.”
“I want to share my story of my excessive neck, shoulder, upper back, and low back pain and my experience with the treatments I took to relieve them.
After my laser treatments with Dr. Robert A. Dickman, Pain Laser Clinic, I am back on track.
In 2009, I injured my neck, shoulders, and both arms during work. My neck injuries would cause my arms to go numb, and I would feel sharp pains .The pain woke me at night, and I would only be able to sleep for about two to three hours. My family doctor referred l me to see an Orthopedic specialist, and the doctor send me to physical therapy treatment, but it didn’t help me at all. Then, the doctor tried to use an injection treatment to help me relieve pain. But it only worked for only a couple of months, and then pain came back. Then, the doctor recommended for me to do surgery, but I did not want to go through that process. Then the doctor let me try different kinds of pain medications to help me reduce the pain. All the pain medications made me drowsy and affected my daily activities and work. So, I tried to use those medications at night only; but once I did this, I couldn’t handle the pain. Because of that, I lost my job. This caused me to fall into a whirl of depression and constantly question my future. Later I tried acupuncture treatment, but it didn’t help me that much. The pain continued to bother me for a couple of years. At this point, I thought I would be stuck with this problem forever.
In 2013, I luckily met Dr. Dickman. He introduced me to laser therapy. At first, I doubted that it would work. But then, I thought to myself, “I’ve already tried everything else, why not give this a shot? I then began my laser treatment. After a couple of the laser treatments later, pain was relieved in my neck, shoulders, and arms. It also helped me to get better sleep at night too. A couple of months later, I begin to reduce my quantity of pain medication intake. At this time, I realized that I had made the right decision. After one year of laser treatment, I no longer had pain symptoms, and I felt like I was getting better and better. Now, I only take the pain medication when needed. Laser therapy is an amazing tool. It made it possible for me to return to my daily activities without pain, which I thought I would never be able to do again. I am very happy with the results.
Best of all, I no longer suffer from constant neck, shoulders, arms, upper back and, lower back pain any more. Thanks to Pain Laser Clinic and the help of Dr. Dickman, I am 90% pain-free. I did not have to go through surgery or constantly take pain medications. From my experience, laser therapy works.
If you are suffering from any kind of neck, shoulder, arm, or back pain, I recommend laser treatment. And there is no better place than Dr. Dickman’s office. From my experience, I have found Dr. Dickman to be one of the most caring doctors out there; he truly cares about your well-being and wants to help you get better. His appointment times are quite flexible, and he is very easy to contact if you have any questions. So, if you are experiencing any pain, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Dickman and try out laser therapy. It could change your life. It changed mine!”
In 2009 I was diagnosed with cervical spine injury and wrist pain and it has been a constant battle. Over the past five years, I have visited over eighteen (18) doctors in the Bay Area and have taken four (4) steroid shots on my neck, 500 mg Vicodin, 20mg Omeprazole, 50mg Topiramate, 30mg Cymbalta, physical therapy, acupuncture, and nothing helped. For so many years, these medications made me feel nauseous and limited my daily activities, including driving. I met Dr. Dickman in October 2014 and upon my sixth session, I was completely off all medications and felt like a brand new person! Dr. Dickman treated me with deep tissue laser therapy, bone adjustment, and recommended yoga and healthy eating. I have now completed my twelfth session with Dr. Dickman and I feel like I can fly out of his office!! I cannot thank him enough! I highly recommend him for all your chiropractic needs. Please give his office a call and give him a chance to help you!
Dear Dr. Dickman, I don’t know if I ever really thanked you for all your help, but you have made my LIFE LIVABLE again.” Thank you!!
This is a true testimony to Dr. Dickman “Deep Tissue Laser therapy application”. I have been suffering through serious Back pain, Leg pain, migraine headaches, every day. In just few visits with Dr. Dickman who has handled the exact source of this previously incapacitating situation. I had seen innumerable doctors and pain management physicians. Dr. Dickman correctly diagnosed the problem and handled it. This was no small miracle for me. I seriously have been given back several days of each month that otherwise would have been lost. I cannot put a price on that. Thanks for being a GENIUS.” Dr. Dickman has been extremely helpful with not only relieving pain but also with educating me on prevention and correct ways to take care of my back.
My, now 17 year old daughter first showed signs of an illness back in 7th grade when she was 12 years old. After multiple tests and years of undiagnosed illness symptoms, a sleep test showed and confirmed signs of a neurological pain reaction that occurs with most people when some minor pain happens while we are awake, but is evident with patients who suffer from Fibromyalgia. She also was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and since neither illness has a known cure we started to try and attack her “triggers” one by one to lessen the possibility of her symptoms’ intensity and frequency. Our daughter was an advanced dancer and high academic achieving student who would be completely bed-ridden at times due to such severe leg pain. From being a dancer, she was very familiar with the difference in this type of debilitating pain and could describe the deep down feeling well. At times, no one could even sit on her bed with her without that movement causing severe pain. We were referred by a friend who’s mom was a current patient of Dr. Dickman’s and who thought maybe some chiropractic care or possibly the light laser therapy might work for her very severe at times leg pain due to the Fibromyalgia. At its worst, our daughter could not get out of bed, particularly in the morning and at times it felt like her legs were just about to give out on her if she walked or moved. We went to acupuncturists and standard pain med prescriptions but nothing really helped. It was EXTREMELY comforting that during our first meeting with Dr. Dickman, there was familiarity with Fibromyalgia and that there was actually a protocol for it using the laser therapy. Our daughter began a 12 session protocol, twice a week session for 6 weeks, waiting to see results and then continuing with another 6 sessions. There was marked improvement and within several weeks after completing the protocol, she was completely free of any of Fibromyalgia’s symptoms. Having no pain for almost two months, she was badly rear-ended by a large SUV, totaling her car and causing moderate whip lash. The worst of it was having the accident trigger her Fibromyalgia symptoms, so we went right back to the laser therapy and after 2 or 3 sessions, she was back to no symptoms.
I received a copy of Dr. Dickman’s medical-legal report and was very impressed with his thoroughness and professionalism. In my years of reviewing medical records, I had yet to see a report of this caliber.
