Workers’ Compensation patients, physicians and attorneys continue to seek out the experience of Shaheed K. Abdullah as an acupuncture orthopedic specialist and qualified medical evaluator that knows the system beginning to end.

“My first experience with Traditional Chinese Medicine after a college football injury changed my life. I was actually scared to death of needles and although I got past the fear, I make it a point to be very gentle with my patients.

I have been fortunate to train under masters in my field and gain confidence early in my practice using Dr. Richard Tans Balance Method to achieve instant results in relieving pain, increasing range of motion, function and mobility. But nothing is more satisfying then when a patient states ” I have my life back, I wish I tried this years ago.”

Featured Testimonial

WHEN I WENT :: Monday 9AM appt.  Arrived at 8:50AM and left around 10:30AM.  Plenty of parking all around the building at this hour.

I scheduled my first appointment online.

When I arrived at the office, I was given an iPad to enter all of my information.

This was a nice change from having to hand-write pages and pages of personal info.

The appointment started on time. The office was nice, clean and had plenty of magazines.

WHAT I WORE :: I had to go to work right after my appointment so I was wearing black cropped dress pants, lightweight blouse and heels.

You should dress comfortably as you will be laying down on a recliner or a massage table.

I did not have to undress at all.

All of the acupuncture was performed on areas that were accessible while I was fully clothed.

WHY I WENT ::  I have been having neck and head muscle tension and pain for over a month and a half, likely due to stress and working at a computer all day.

The pain was constant and I was taking Advil all throughout the day…everyday.

OVERALL IMPRESSIONS :: Shaheed is a very personable, positive person who puts you at ease right away.

He seems very knowledgeable in his work and I appreciated his communication on what he was doing.

He did not pressure me for more appointments.

After the acupuncture needles were placed, I relaxed and reclined in my room for quite a while…probably close to 45mins.

It was unexpectedly relaxing.

I wasn’t a believer, but I am now.

I felt *immediate* improvement in range of motion and easing of muscle tension.

I could only turn my head about 45 degrees when I arrived.

By the time I left and progressively through the rest of the day.

I could easily turn my head close to 90 degrees (an actually regain the ability to check my blind spot while driving!)

One day post-treatment, I still feel the benefits of the treatment.

My muscles seem to be loosening up and my range of motion staying at the improved range.

Now the only thing I’m wondering is why I didn’t go sooner!

Haven't felt this well in a long time

Six herniated disks is a real problem with pain. I've been through the entire "Pain Program" at Kaiser, to no avail. Kailyn has helped me immeasurably. I look forward to my visits like no other time in my schedule. Thank you for your healing.

Acupuncture keeps me in the Saddle!

This is no joke! I have two herniated discs in my lower back and I compete in Endurance rides (25-35 miles) on my Arabian horse. I accredit the fact that I am able to compete on a regular basis to the acupuncture treatments that I first got from Dr. Dinesh, and now am receiving from Shaheed. Anytime my sciatica acts up, I can be assured that with the combination of cupping and acupuncture, I will be back in the saddle by the weekend!
