Patient Testimonials

cat
My cat Nube-La was diagnosed with an inner ear disease that almost took her life earlier this year.

She could hardly walk, she stumbled and fell constantly. She couldn’t control her head and finally she had a seizure in my garden.

The doctors wanted her to have an MRI to look for a possible brain damage. Their hopes were not high for her survival.

I tried the holistic route which is always my first choice.

After a series of treatments with Dr. Jessica Paige, all these symptoms changed for the better.

Nube-La slowly turned around…she eats, walks and behaves normally. When she shows me she needs help I take her to Dr Paige for her quarterly adjustment.

Even though, at age 11 she was left with a hearing impairment, I can say she has a normal life, in good health and enjoying the garden…only when she reluctantly leaves her heating mat behind.

I’d recommend Dr Paige to anyone whose animal friend needs support to heal.

Her skills, her intuition and her compassionate heart make healing miracles possible.

Nube-La and I are deeply grateful to Dr. Paige.

I have an Arabian mare. She has been with me for 9 years, and if there is a smarter, cooperative, and spirited horse, I haven’t met her. Unfortunately, she injured herself last March. About 6 weeks ago, I started working with Dr. Jessica Paige, who is an experienced Chiropractor with animals and humans.

To say it is a remarkable delight to be my sweet mare running around with other horses, trotting, cantering and galloping for the first time in 7 months is an understatement. It was a dream come true.

Ellie’s Story

Ellie came to me and had lost complete function of her back legs. Through conservative management (chiropractic and laser,) look how great she is doing! Full function of her hind end and most importantly a return to being herself.


Rocky Horror – Chiropractic Helping Surgical Recovery

I worked at a veterinary hospital in San Jose that would take surrendered animals if we felt we could find a new home for them. One day, a young woman brought in a 10 week old kitten. This kitten was so frightened it would barely move and had fear ridden eyes everyone could notice. The young women stated she found her dog in the yard chewing on what she thought was a toy, only to realize it was this kitten. During examination, it was obvious the kitten did not move because her right rear leg was completely broken at the femur with punctures in her thigh. Read more

Our hospital recognized the young women as a good samaritan and allowed her to surrender the kitten to our care. That day, we offered the kitten food, water, and a warm kennel in our treatment area. The broken leg was confirmed with x-rays and we were happy to know nothing else was broken. We immediately managed her pain and then scheduled her for a voluntary surgery by two of our veterinarians the following day. After her amputation, I monitored the kitten closely for a week hoping she would walk on her own. She continued to show so much fear in her eyes, even when I would check on her, her incisions and wounds, or change her bedding and offer food. She never moved more than walking with her front legs and barely used her rear foot to push her rear end. We worried she had nerve damage to her left rear leg, especially with punctured wounds also found in her left thigh. Because she spent so much time in hiding, I offered to take her home to give her a warm, quiet place to heal and help rehabilitate her if she allowed. Our hospital was happy to have the kitten stay with me for a bit. The day I took her home became one of the most important days of my life. The ballots of the presidential election of 2016 were being counted while I had the kitten by my right hiding in a blanket with only her face exposed. She looked scared but, for the first time, safe. As my own cat, Rasa Libre, and I kept an eye on her, I could not help but hear the announcement of the presidential election. The moment the president was announced, I was about to evaluate how I felt until I looked over to the kitten and noticed her giving a comfortable squint and sigh after Rasa Libre gave her a sniff and quick face groom. At that moment, I promised to the kitten out loud that I would give her a world of love and compassion. My fiancè, Albert, was also in support of the care for our new kitten, whom we named Rocky Horror to celebrate her unique appearance (grey and white pattern, additional toe to each foot to resemble a human-like paws, and now three legs) and beautiful personality (tramatizeed yet brave, scared yet loving and gentle, physically painful yet always seeked emotional comfort). For the last year and a half, Albert, Rasa Libre, and I have helped Rocky Horror experience love, trust, and healing. She compensated with her back, shoulders, and left hock to walk and run. It was known that Rasa Libre was her emotional support as Rocky Horror ran to her and followed her everywhere. I spent many late nights, even until this day, hanging out with Rocky Horror as it is her favorite time to open up and be silly and play. She was very fearful of everyone and everything else. Albert spent many days learning to adjust in ways that were sensitive towards Rocky Horror. Friends of ours would visit socialize with Rocky Horror using Rasa Libre as an example. On March 2017, I came home from work to find Rocky Horror hiding. She has never hid from me but I found her hiding under the bed. She was initially reluctant to come out but eventually did when realizing it was me calling her. She slowly, and painfully, pulled herself toward me while dragging her remaining rear leg and gave a low cry. It was so painful for me to see and I was confused to what may have happened. I woke Albert who said she seemed to walk normal just before he went to bed. A trip right back to work with Rocky Horror showed a left hip with a slipped capital femoral epiphysis and a pair of fused vertebrates. She was scheduled for a femoral head ostectomy soon after. It was traumatizing for Rocky Horror on what seemed to be another scary experience of pain leading to surgical pain, and a week stay in a different hospital. Rocky Horror received treatments from her doctor at the hospital and home rehabilitative care with passive range of motion and teaching her how to walk again. Due to her fused spine and anticipated healing, I elected her be seen by a chiropractor. Dr. Paige just happened to start receiving appointments at the hospital and I had no hesitation for her to meet Rocky Horror. Since the surgery, hospital laser therapy, home rehabilitation and chiropractic appointments with Dr. Paige, Rocky Horror has gained so much strength and confidence that I do not recognize her at times. She contently receives her spinal adjustments. She loves to look out the window, whether going to appointments or hanging out at home. She went from fearfully running away from Albert to presenting a confident and shake for him before meals. The four of us is now are able to hangout all at once due to how comfortable and confident Rocky Horror has been. Rocky Horror still remains a loving and endearing personality.
