No more headaches
I have found the last piece of the puzzle in the treatment of mid thoracic, neck pain and headaches. I've been on a 30 year journey with pain brought on partly because of poor posture and car accidents where I was rear ended at 55 to 60 miles per hour. Thinking I was "fine" at the time, I didn't seek any medical intervention. Years later as back and neck pain set in I sought physical therapy believing this would "take care of it" and since I'm a PT myself, I had high hopes that it would. It turned out the best help for my mid thoracic pain was improved core strength from Pilates which also improved my posture. Becoming certified in Pilates instruction, I continued to improve some but the neck pain never stopped and the headaches got worse over time. Soft tissue work such as massage, myofascial release and Aston-Patterning as well as manual physical therapy would give me temporary relief but nothing lasted more than a week or two. At a friend's suggestion I saw Dr. Sheffield. X-rays revealed some significant disc degeneration and improper weight bearing through the neck. Physical exam revealed mal-alignment of my atlas and axis. Treatment of these areas has finally, for the first time in years, given me weeks now of NO headaches! I wish I'd have gotten here sooner!

Laying down was a struggle
When I first got to Westlake Chiropractor I couldn't sit for more than 5 mins, laying down was a struggle. I am amazed at the improvement that I have had in the 2 months under Dr. Sheffield care. Her adjustments are super gentle. I can sit and lay without any pain and I'm much energetic. Dr Sheffield is an excellent doctor! I would recommend her to my friends and family.
They said I would never run again
After suffering a spinal injury a year and a half ago I was going to other Chiropractors and I was told I would never run again. Within the first 10 to 15 visit I've been able to start running again and I'm already up to 20+ miles a week something I thought I would never do again. Dr. Katerina Sheffield Is a miracle worker and has magic hands I highly recommend her.
If you're looking for a good chiropractor, STOP LOOKING. My spine was extremely out of line because of an accident I had in my adolescence and it was causing me SEVERE back pain. I went to my primary doctor, massage therapist, I even tried acupuncture to alleviate the pain and had no success. After 3 adjustments with Dr. Sheffield I was already feeling better and soon after the pain was 100% gone. Her office is very nice and warm and her receptionist Victoria is lovely. I felt like we were all friends by the end of my treatment. Such an amazing experience. 10/10
Manageable for the first time
I highly recommend giving Doctor Sheffield a chance to help you, My decade old issue is now manageable for the first time and improving. I was in extreme pain.
Mobility improving, pain decreasing
Dr. Sheffield is an incredible doctor. Before her treatments I had gone to a neurologist and eventually received a steroid shot for neck pain resulting from an accident. Prior to the injection the pain was between 9 and 10. After the injection it improve slightly to 8 - 9. After only two treatments, my pain went to 5 - 6. My mobility is improving and the pain is gradually decreasing. It is obvious that Dr. Sheffield is an exceptional doctor. She loves what she is doing. She has developed a plan that I am sure is going to help me more than Physical Therapy or Message Therapy. She and her staff treat me with respect and always receive me with a smile. I highly recommend her.
