Neuropathy Testimonials

Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"I came to Dr. Alff needing alignment and also having poor circulation in my legs and feet.

At the culmination of my treatments, I witnessed a dramatic improvement not only in the above mentioned problems but also experienced a huge burst of energy which I did not have previously.

This transformation allowed me to pursue an item on my bucket list: SKYDIVING.  it was an "awesome" experience!  I jumped at 10,000 feet and my body responded well.

I'm ever grateful for the good care Dr. Alff and his staff has given me!

I finally could pursue my dream!!"

- Monroe Kaplan, Age 83


Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"I had surgery on my low back a number of years ago, but my low back was hurting so I contacted Dr. Alff.  Also, due to a diabetic condition, I was also experiencing neuropathy in my left leg.

Now after care, I am noticing that my quality of sleep is great!

I used to wake up pretty tense, but now I am waking up pretty relaxed.

After only 3 weeks, I’ve noticed that I can walk better and my back is not hurting me constantly!

As I continue on my treatment program, I look forward to even more improvement with Dr. Alff!"

Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"I originally had what felt like a very thick pair of socks on my feet for about 3-4 years and it was gradually getting worse.  It affected my balance, plus it was very distracting to me especially when I was at work.

I answered an ad in the newspaper & attended Dr. Alff's seminar about Peripheral Neuropathy.  The information he shared made a lot of sense! I hoped that my symptoms could be halted and reversed, and so I started treatment at the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center. In a fairly short time of treatment, I gained a lot of feeling and sensitivity in the bottom of my feet and it's not disturbing me anymore!

This program didn't just address my neuropathy....The examination revealed other issues.  Dr. Alff's program helped me to lose weight, eliminate my blood pressure meds, and my recent blood tests showed best cholesterol numbers in 15 years and so my cardiologist cut my statin dose in half! Some other things that have cleared up is my acid reflux symptoms and some great improvements to my back.

I would rate the quality of care at the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center to be a 10 out of 10!  They have effective treatments, a caring Doctor and staff.

As I pass the "age 65" milestone, I feel better, sleep better, take fewer medications.

My plan is to continue with their recommendation of regular visits for "tune-ups" and prevention of previous health issues - it certainly makes sense to prevent issues than to seek treatment only after those issues become a problem!"

Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"My toes started to go numb two years ago.  It started in my right foot with a burning sensation, and then it moved to my left foot. In January 2017 I started getting burning in my arms and legs.  It was very worrisome.  I went to the Neurologist who said I was a victim of Peripheral Neuropathy. I asked him what caused it and he said: "diabetes, diabetes, diabetes" and sent me for a complete blood panel.

On my next visit, he told me my labs were all normal, I didn’t have diabetes, and that I had "idiopathic" peripheral neuropathy and that he was sorry but there was no treatment for that ailment.

He also told me that I would gradually lose all the feeling in my feet and would probably need a cane soon, and would have to use a walker within a few years.

I said to myself, "I don't think so!"  and did extensive research until I found Dr. Alff at the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center.  After consulting with him and some education he gave me, I started treatment with Dr. Alff.

Within 2 weeks of treatment, the burning has stopped completely in my arms and legs!  Then after the third week, to my surprise, I started to get the feeling back in my feet!

I am not done with treatment yet and I am not all the way there yet, but at least I feel the difference and am feeling positive about my healing the problem and getting my health back!"

- Ralph Maiello, Camarillo


Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"I came to the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center because I am a Type 2 Diabetic and it gradually developed into  Peripheral Neuropathy.  I was experiencing constant pain and needles in my hands and feet.  I was taking medication for the pain all the time!

When I decided to begin on Dr. Alff's  "Defeat Neuropathy' program,  it started with coaching me how to eat better.  I knew I needed to do that because I was worried about destroying my nerve system!  I was also given some nutritional supplementation to "feed the nerves" and supplementation to control my blood sugar levels.

I also received instrument-directed chiropractic spinal adjustments so my nervous system worked better and I was given two therapies at home to do on a daily basis to stimulate and regenerate the nerves in my feet.

Now that I have completed my 3 month neuropathy program, I have seen a big, huge progress!  I have stopped taking all the medication that I had been taking for the pain and I even stopped taking  insulin! I stopped totally!

I am eating a lot better,  so that helped me lose a lot of weight.  Now I feel much more energetic  at work and throughout the day.  I feel a lot better and am much more comfortable with myself!

Dr. Alff is easy to communicate with and I feel very relaxed every time I leave his office."

Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial

"Chronic pain from Spinal Stenosis and Peripheral Neuropathy is what brought me to the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center, after attending Dr. Alff's Neuropathy seminar . I then had a one-on-one consultation with the Doctor.  After that, I felt that what he offered me to get better... could help me!

Previously, I had had two back surgeries, nine spinal epidurals, and 10 years of opioid (oxycontin) use.   After discontinuing the prescription pain medications, I then took over-the-counter medications which took the edge off the pain.

After five (5!) treatments with Dr. Alff at the Center, along with following his instructions of home therapies he had me do at home, and the nutritional supplementation he gave me, I have been pain free!

My family and friends noticed right away that I was walking better and stronger, I was participating in more things and that I was happier and appeared to have even lost some weight. I am doing more things now: concerts, lunch out, visiting, and enjoying life more!

Coming to the Ventura Spine & Nerve Center, you notice right away the friendliness of the staff.  They are always interested and concerned, as well as giving lots of encouragement to keep up the good work.  I rate the whole office, and Dr, Alff, a 10 out of 10!

Thank you!  Thank You!!!!"

Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"I contacted Dr. Alff at the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center because I had been experiencing numbness and pain in my feet and I had been previously medically diagnosed with Peripheral Neuropathy.   I also suffered with chronic pain due to a bulging disc in my low back.  A variety of other things were going on, including some balance issues.

I was looking for help because my quality of life really means a lot to me.  I have a variety of sports that I do including paddle boarding, surfing, riding motorcycles, bicycling, etc. so I was hopeful Dr. Alff could help me.

He started me on a customized Neuropathy program for my particular condition.  Part of my program included a cellular detoxification program which has been very effective in clearing up my thoughts.  I am waking up with more clarity and able to go forward.

All in all Dr. Alff's program is very comprehensive and has improved my quality of life.  I feel very fortunate to be able to be a part of his Neuropathy program."

Chiropractic Ventura CA Spinal Decompression Patient Testimonial"I was suffering for months  with back-aches, burning legs, lack of sleep and no energy.   I didn't know what to do to get better except  to ask my Medical Doctor and he just kept giving me the same thing - only medications.  That was not my idea of helping!

I happened to read an article in the newspaper about Dr. Alff's Neuropathy Center.  I decided to make an appointment, not knowing what to expect. I began his Neuropathy program.

After just a few treatments, which were very gentle and painless, I regained my sleep and energy!  The burning leg pain slowly dissipated.  Now I am able to enjoy my work and can do whatever I want without the pain and discomfort.

I would not hesitate to recommend the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center, with Dr. Alff and his wonderful assistants!

To anyone who is in need of help with their neuropathy symptoms...to me, it is amazing! Dr. Alff offers the healthcare of the future.............no drugs!

Thank you Dr. Alff and wonderful  Assistants!"

Chiropractic Ventura CA C. Wearing Testimonial"No one really learns to live with pain. Pain tarnishes the joy of the simple pleasure of every day. Before I committed to Dr. Alff’s program, my quality of life was compromised. I felt I was on a downhill spiral.

Peripheral Neuropathy seemed to be a non-treatable diagnosis with the doctors that I had seen in an effort to find a solution.

When sitting, standing, and walking, I experienced very uncomfortable numbness in both feet and ankles. When I moved from sitting to standing, I felt an intense pain in my hips and lower back. It was difficult to take the first step! In addition, my back pain made it difficult to turn over in bed. And I had intermittent tingling in both hands.

It is funny if I hadn’t made a list, I think that I wouldn’t have remembered how much pain I had. Because today, just after 8 weeks, my back pain is virtually an occasional tinge. My hip pain while walking is gone. I can roll over on my bed without struggling. The numbness in my feet and ankles has improved immensely. My toes are much more flexible when walking. And last not least, I am eating a nutritious and enriched diet with weight loss goals.

I must admit, I was skeptical when I started, but I am so thankful I chose this path to a better life! Again, thank you Dr. Alff.

You have definitely made a difference in the quality of my life!"

- C. Wearing


"I was suffering for about 5 years with numbness in my feet and what I could feel… really hurt!

I heard Dr. Alff speak at a presentation where he explained that medications lessen the pain, but it does nothing for the problem.

I was tired of being told by my Doctors that there was nothing I could do about my Neuropathy symptoms besides medications, so I decided to start Dr. Alff’s natural Neuropathy program.

I am still under care, but I am getting better!  I am a cowboy shooter.  I shoot several times a week and I have noticed that the treatment is definitely helping my balance.

I am enthusiastic about my choice to get under care with Dr. Alff, because I believe I can be healthier and live with less pain!

I rate the quality of care at Dr. Alff’s office to be a 10 out of 10!"

- Matt Morrison, Moorpark


"I started treatment with Dr. Alff because my back pain was preventing me from walking very much and my back condition was the cause of my peripheral neuropathy symptoms; mostly numbness in my feet.  The back pain and numbness caused me to have poor balance and so I couldn't walk much.

I had tried physical therapy at three difference facilities!  I gained some improvement, but when it was completed, I reverted back to my original problems.

Now that I have completed my course of care with Dr. Alff, my back is almost non-existent and I have less numbness in my feet; I have regained the feeling in my feet!

I am now able to walk better and the spinal adjustments he gave me have helped tremendously!

I am now able to things for a longer period, instead of stopping and resting because of pain.

What I learned was that physical therapy was mostly exercises.  Dr. Alff's Peripheral Neuropathy program is more effective!

I would rate the quality of my care at the Ventura Spine and Nerve Center to be a 10!"

- Annie Leong, Camarillo


"This is a thank you letter for all that you and your warm and caring staff has shown me throughout my coming to terms with diabetes 2 and neuropathy symptoms.

Not being able to participate in family functions was frustrating and belittling, and not being able to climb bleachers to watch my grandson's basketball game was weighing on me. Pain was wearing me down emotionally.

I researched treatments and found that my current health provider Kaiser hospital did not offer any treatment whatsoever for my neuropathy and was forced to go looking for an alternative treatment.After much reading and using the internet and Facebook, I read about Dr. Alff’s Clinic and went to talk to him. I have read about using electrical current to “wake up the damaged nerves and help the nerve healing process" and success with it. The tests he performed on me showed me just how out of balance my body chemistry was and I began treatment with him.

At the halfway point of my treatment program,  the results are so amazing that both my balance and resulted in memory recovery. The neuropathy has all but subsided Entirely! I am sleeping better, walking, doing yoga is a joy, and l would like to thank the Doctor and staff for their compassion and understanding of my situation and the willingness to work with me

Once a skeptic, a skeptic no more! I'm going with the wife to Utah to walk and hike when I've completed the neuropathy program. Stand in a stream and fish!. At 64 I can enjoy my retirement like I planned."
