Katy C*: "Dr Mokari has been helping to heal a hip/low back issue for almost a year.  The issue caused a great deal of pain and stiffness and affected my sleep and the ability to do everyday activities.
He diagnosed my problem as being a loose ligament that caused the bones of the pelvis to move around and to be unstable.  His treatment protocol helped my body to heal itself and provide stability to my hips - allowing me to once again walk and move normally.  
I continue to have maintenance visits with Dr Mokari and to do the exercises he gives me to strengthen and stabilize my core, legs and hips.  I am working to resume more rigorous  exercise and to play golf. 
Dr Mokari’s approach was totally different from any of the other exercise and physical therapy treatments I had tried.  He has very intricate knowledge of how the spine and body move and I recommend him very highly."


Janis T*:  "... thank you for providing me excellent care since my accidents occurred the end of November.  When I was trying to figure out the best place to go to receive the care I needed, my option was my Novant GP who would have sent me to get x-rays, physical therapy, and prescribed pain pills and muscle relaxants and I really don't like to take anything like that now.  I knew that was not going to be a healing protocol that I wanted and would have left me in pain and ongoing misery for a very long time.  My head, neck, and spine were a mess as you know.  When you came to mind, I didn't know what to expect, but hoped you might be my answer. 
I can definitely say you have been a god send in my ongoing treatment.  I think when you are younger, your body bounces back so much quicker then when you are over 55 like I am now.  This feels like it has been a slow process for me and I expected to jump right back to feeling good.  But this hasn't been as easy as I anticipated.  So, being able to have more gentle treatments like you prescribed for me through your services, acupuncture, and massage have made my healing bearable.  I was so thankful you prescribed me to do these treatments and just utilize over the counter pain meds. From a bad situation, I have found some good come from it I guess you could say.  When I first came in to see you, I was a mess and so tense and in stress, headaches, nausea, trouble sleeping, so much anxiety, even depression, could not remember things, overall discomfort all over.  Wow when I think back, it was pretty awful and my holidays were not the best. The past few weeks especially, I have been able to see progress I am feeling is holding now.  I don't feel like I am totally back to where I was before this happened, but I am so much better now and I can't thank you enough for being able to help me and reminding me to be patient..."


Kathryn L*:  "I was diagnosed with cervical disc disease over a year ago.  I had a cervical epidural but was still having pain.  Within 2-3 weeks of seeing Dr. Mokari, my pain had improved dramatically.  The treatments, including acupuncture and muscle manipulation, work great!

With Dr. Mokari's continued treatment, my neck and back pain are under control.  I don't have to use pain medications at all anymore. 

I highly recommend Healing Arts Medical!"


Tom R*:   "I have had lower back issue since my early 20's.  Through my 20's and 30's I was able to recover in 2-3 days.  In my 40's the recovery periods began to lengthen and then the big BANG when I turned 50.  I was out of commission for 3 months.  Thankfully I have not encoutered another big BANG since 2010, but I continued to experience intermittent issues. 

I am a cyclist and "live to ride".  By some standards I don't ride that much, but I try to get in 4K miles per year.  Some would say that riding contributes to my issues.  That may be so, but I don't want a back issue to prevent me from riding or any other activities that keep me active and healthy.

As anyone who has experienced back issues knows how it affects how you think about your daily routines, will this activity or that activity make my back "mad"? And then sometimes you never know what triggers your your back to become "mad".  It is very frustrating!

I have been down the traditional medicine route, you know, your GP refers you to a specialist and so on.  I've also tried the chiropractic route.  These all work for a time but my issues would resurface within a couple of weeks.  From my perspective the traditional approaches were not addressing the root cause of my back issue or would address them without an invasive procedure.  These experiences opened me to consider alternative ways to manage my back issues. 

A friend told me about Dr. Mokari.  I was familiar with osteopathic medicine and its holistic approach to medicine but had not considered it as an alternative to help me with my back issues. Hearing about it tweaked my interest and I decided to give it a try.

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical when I scheduled my first appointment.  What good is this going to do verses traditional medicine? What if it causes my back to revolt or make things worse?

Dr. Mokari spent 2 hours with me during my first appointment.  He got to know me and asked what I felt was causing my back issues. Yes, he spent the time to get to know and understand me prior to making a diagnosis and determining the plan to address my back issue. 

I have been going to Dr. Mokari since October 2014 and have been on a maintenance plan since December 2014. Since I began treatments, I have not had any of the recurring issues I experienced with traditional medicine or chiropractic.

Dr. Mokari's treatment plan is working for me.  I like the holistic approach, staff and the benefits I have experienced by giving it a try.  With their help, I look forward to daily activites and riding many more miles without an "angry" back."
