Here’s What Others Have to Say!
I started seeing Dr. Josh after having acute pain in my right shoulder post workout one day. The symptoms had been lasting one week, even after seeing another chiropractor. In addition, I could not train for my sport.My shoulder was not the only issue. I had disc problems in my cervical spine, as well as an old lingering injury in my lower back. I was a mess – always fighting some kind of pain – and very uncomfortable. I have a long history with shoulder problems. I have had two surgeries and poor mobility. I was very concerned because I had a competition coming up and was leaving for school in just 2 months, which did not give Dr. Josh very much time to diagnose and treat me, or so I thought.
I have seen over a dozen different doctors for my various shoulder and neck issues and most of them have either told me to stop lifting or that my shoulder would always give me problems. As soon as I stepped into Dr. Josh’s office, I told him, “if you cant fix me, I’ll leave. I am serious about Olympic weightlifting and I want to continue on with my sport.” He looked at me and said that we would figure it out. After a long first session of being twisted every which way to figure out the source of the issues, Dr. Josh started working on me. The next day my shoulder pain was gone. It was not a temporary fix. The pain stayed away all summer and still has to this day. I saw Dr. Josh two to three times a week for the rest of the summer. My neck took a little longer to deal with but I feel completely different than when I first started seeing him.
Dr. Josh came to one of my weekend long competitions to work on me and a few other athlete’s from my gym. He kept us going when we needed him most and was more than happy to do so! I have had ART before, but I have never had a doctor so truly invested in my sport and my well being, both mental and physical. One of the biggest reasons I was upset to leave home for school in MA was because I would be leaving Dr. Josh treatments. Every time I came home I made sure to try and see Dr. Josh, he worked on me and made sure he fit me into his busy schedule.
As a full time martial arts instructor, I rely on my body and try to keep it in top condition so I can provide my students optimal training. Dr.Jagoda aside from being a top jiu-jitsu practitioner and awesome dude, is the only person I rely on when it comes to getting me properly aligned and helping to stay injury free. He is very knowledgeable and I recommend him to anyone who comes to me with any health issues.
