What People Say About Us
I just wanted to write a short note and tell you how pleased I am with the breakthrough we have had with my upper back and shoulder pain. As you know, I have been having the pain for close to a year, and have visited other specialists. However, no one was able to address the exact cause of the pain. That was until I met you and your “stainless steel tools of pain relief”. By using your knowledge and the graston tools, and applying your fitness advice and stretching exercises, I have not only regained full movement in my back and shoulders, but I’ve gone back to work and can golf again. I am very pleased that the sessions have resulted in increased abilities and have remained on track according to your rehabilitation schedule that you laid out on our first visit.

My entire left side was badly mangled after a car accident. I chose to go with the Chiropractic Health Centre because they specialize in MVA cases and I wasn’t disappointed. I was able to see both the chiropractor (Dr. Jamila Abdulla) and the massage therapist (Jen Krotech) and was impressed with how they asked permission to work together, and did a great job. They communicated their thoughts on my treatment plan. They also were very timely with my claim submissions. It was a scary time for me but they both made me feel comfortable and in control. I appreciate their professionalism and dedication to my care.
I sought help from my family doctor for relief from a very sharp and intense pain in my left shoulder and neck. He put me on painkillers and sent me in for x-rays. The painkillers brought little relief. Fortunately for me, my barber spoke very highly of how you had helped him. The rest is history! You took the time to take a detailed history of my health history, and respected what I thought – refreshing! Imagine my surprise when, after examining my neck and viewing the x-rays, you asked, “When did you break your neck?” I have to wonder why the injury to my neck (from a mountain climbing accident years ago) hadn’t been considered before now. You were able to target the real problem and after five visits I was pain-free and off the pain-killers. Thank you!

I almost gave up playing hockey because my lower back hurt so much. It would keep me awake at night. A friend referred me to Dr. Abdulla and at first I was skeptical because I was under the impression that all chiropractors were quacks and that it wasn’t real therapy, but I was desperate. I went to see Dr.Adbulla and she told me that my hamstrings were the problem, she put me on a treatment plan that worked with my hockey game schedule and gave me stretches and strengthening exercises to do. I appreciated that she didn’t want me to have to come in more than necessary. That was two years ago and I haven’t had a problem since.
When I was living in Calgary, I saw R.M.T Jen Krotech weekly for her Sports Massage Therapy, and Dr. Jamila Abdulla for a series of Graston sessions to help some bad scar tissue build up in my shoulders. Then I moved to Key Largo, where I haul scuba tanks and dive on the regular. I was fine for awhile before my body started reacting the change in lifestyle — and when that happened, I didn’t hesitate to call Dr. Abdulla. She took time out of her schedule to talk me through different things I could do to stay fit and healthy. There aren’t many people of her and Jen’s calibre…I trust them completely.
I started seeing Jen while I was pregnant with my first child. I had really bad lower back pain and had difficulty maintaining my pregnancy fitness workout routine. She helped to alleviate the pain so that I could continue with my workouts up to 39 weeks of my pregnancy. During my second pregnancy, I continued to see her. I had issues with my hips, low back and neck. Her massages really helped to minimize the pain I had and improve my range of motion. She was great during both pregnancies and I have continued to see her since then. She is a great massage therapist, very personable, listens really well and helps to create a plan to recover.
Dear Doctor Abdulla:
I can’t let any more time go by without writing to tell you how I’ve been feeling as a result of your chiropractic treatments to my neck.
As you may recall, before visiting you the first time I sought help from my family doctor for relief from a very sharp and intense pain in my left shoulder. He put me on painkillers and sent me in for x-rays. An appointment was made to see an orthopedic surgeon 8 months later. The painkillers brought little relief.
In desperation I visited a chiropractic clinic in Calgary. No change. Fortunately for me, my barber spoke very highly of how you had helped him. The rest is history! Upon my first visit to your office you took the time to take a detailed history of my health history, and respected what I thought-refreshing! Imagine my surprise when, after examining my neck and viewing the x-rays, you asked, “when did you break your neck?” I have to wonder why no doctor, in the last forty five years, ever discovered what happened to my neck long ago when I suffered a mountain climbing accident.
Because you took the time and carefully examined my neck and the x-ray, and followed a very careful procedure in manipulating my cervical vertebra, and relaxing the related muscles, I walked out of your office after only the first two visits virtually pain free. Three more visits and I was pain-free and off the pain-killers. It’s been so ever since!
Thank you for your encouragement to pursue holistic and natural healing alternatives.
