(56) Chiropractic & Pain Management
"Dr. Heshmat has in his practice a wonderful machine called the Acuscope  which is such a help in healing injuries.  He and his staff are experts at using this tool to solve all kinds of ailments.  I first went to see Dr. Heshmat about three or so years ago for Plantar fasciitis. His use of the Acuscope worked miracles on the pain I was suffering from and it has not returned. Unfortunately due to the rules and regulations around using this great tool, he has to also charge for a Chiropractic adjustment which can be pricey, but hey, where would I be now if I had not invested in healing the pa..."

"Dr. Heshmat has been a great help with my back pain. He spends more time listening to me and helping me explore the mechanics of the problem."

"I arrived to Dr. Heshmat's pain clinic with extreme shoulder pain after suffering from an injury. The pain was excruciating  -  I couldn't engage with PT which I had to do post wrist surgery, I couldn't sleep and I couldn't work; I tried many things including medication, and felt quite desperate. After the 3rd Acusope treatment, I started feeling a significant relief. After the 7th treatment, the pain was gone. I proceeded to treat my forearm, and after just a couple treatments could start doing PT with no pain. I don't know why doctors do not know if this option to treat pain. Feeling very..."

"Dr. Heshmat is awesome! He is very knowledgeable and caring. I was having headaches and neck pains on regular basis. Dr. Heshmat adjusted my neck and treated me several times with the Electro-Acuscope and the pains disappeared!!! He took the time to patiently explain the root cause of my problem and advised me to take care of them.  I wish every doctor was like him..."

" pain in my left arm and I was not able to move it. For two weeks after the incident, I went to several different doctors and even the hospital to try and figure out what was happening to me. No one was able to diagnose or help me until I came to Dr. Heshmat. He told me that I had degree of frozen shoulder and we began treatment. While I was getting treated I had to lay off of running for my track team. Last week, my track coach told me that my season was over because there is very few meets left in the season and that I was basically off the team. Instead of listening I fought to stay..."

"Excellent care from Dr Heshmat's clinic ! I have 3 partial muscle tears, rotator cuff area that caused significant pain with loss of strength. Dr Heshmat's acuscope treatment perfused my injured rotator cuff with warmth on day 1 and subsequently woke up injured muscles for increased use. On day 3 , was able to tolerate laying supine rather than sitting up and was able to sleep overnight without being woken up by shoulder pain. Had months of physical therapy, without improvement and with resultant muscle spasms relaxed by the acuscope. I was initially scared of chiro adjustments but Dr Heshm..."

"While on a trip to Palo Alto, I woke up with pain in my neck that moved down my right arm which I had never experienced before.  I got up, took a shower and move around but the pain didn't get any better.  I really didn't want to spend hours in an urgent care and decided to find a clinic that could see me right away.  I came across Heshmat Pain Management Clinic after a search and called them.  They gave me an appointment right away and I was amazed by the staff and Dr. Heshmat.  My neck pain began to go away immediately after Dr. Heshmat's adjustment.  I'm ver..."

"d visited Dr Heshmat in the past for a lower back pain which he fixed after only three visits, making me feel better within a week. On a separate occasion after being prescribed a round of antibiotics at my local urgent care for a sore throat, I decided to pay Dr Heshmat a visit, it turned out that it was nothing related to any kind of infection and rather an irritated neck muscle which he surfaced and treated using an acusope. He took his time listening to me and my symptoms, evaluating me and went straight to curing me, in just two visits. Best Chiropractic office ever!!!! Dr Heshmat..."

"Heshmat pain clinic is where I go to get healthy and therapeutic treatments.  It's priceless to have a doctor who actually gives a damn about you!"
More
"Dr. Heshmat is an excellent and knowledgeable chiropractor who not only focuses on the treatment, but also looks for the root of the problem. He deeply cares about his patients and is committed to healing them."

"I used to have severe headaches and I tried everything including medications, therapies, meditations, and etc, Followed up with blood test, dentist, allergy test, optometrist and so on. But I finally came across to Heshmat Pain Management clinic and I was shocked that Dr. Heshmat found out the problem at the very first visit, OLD MATTRESS & WRONG SIZE PILLOW. After changing my mattress and got the right measured pillow and couple of the ELectro- Acuscope treatment, my headache is gone permanently. I highly recommend Dr. Heshmat. Thank you!"

"Dr. H is awesome.  He is very knowledgeable and intuitive when it comes to diagnosing the issue and recommending/applying the right treatment for rapid recovery."

"My daughter started going to Dr. Heshmat in February 2018 to deal with chronic daily headaches/post concussion syndrome from a whiplash related concussion she had received in April 2015. She began feeling some relief relatively quickly and by the time she went off to college in August 2018 her headaches had gone from a daily average of 7/8 to 3/4. She feels that if it wasn't for the clinic she would not have been going out of state for college."

"I was referred to Dr. Heshmat by a friend on a Sunday when I was in acute pain. He was able to see me the same day! Amazing. Who does that!? I left his office 75% better when I had been barely able to walk due to a pinched nerve in my back. Successive treatments using the electro Acuscope combined with Dr. Heshmat’s perceptive eye and broad experience have restored me to an even better place than I was before I blew out my back. This is because Dr. Heshmat is not content to simply eliminate the pain. That is his first goal, of course. But he is determined to identify the root cause and prov..."

"I really appreciate Dr Heshmat. He is very educated and highly knowledgeable about his practice. You never feel like he's brushing you off or lying to you. I trust him very much and I know he has never deceived me for my money the way most chiropractors do. He always takes extra time to answer my questions in great detail and give me the medical breakdown of my issue, even if that means running behind on his own schedule he will do it. That shows how dedicated he is to his job and actually caring to treat his patients. I've had a very difficult time finding a doctor that knew what my issues..."

"This was my first time going to a chiropractor and I was pleasantly surprised. As a dentist, I had developed a number of painful spots over the years due to bad position of working on patients. I had accepted pain as an old friend which visited me day and night. Finally , last week I had pain which prevented me from raising my arm and I needed to see someone to be able to continue doing my job. I had sent some patients with TMJ pain and even locked jaws to Dr. Heshmat, and they came back raving, so I reached out and asked for help.  I am happy to say that I am immensely better after only tw..."

"Alan and his team are excellent at what they do. I have had a long standing knee issue and he improved my mobility so much that i don't need the surgery recommended by my doctor. I still have the issue but i can now manage it and exercise relatively pain free because of the treatment i received. I am so grateful to have found this clinic."
More
"I have had such a wonderful experience here.   Very welcoming and willing to work with my schedule to make appointments.   Office staff is very friendly.   Dr.  Heshmat is very knowledgeable and very willing to explain the entire process.   Not your average chiropractor.   So much more.   Providing treatments not available at most other offices.   My ankle is finally feeling much better thanks to Dr. Heshmat!  You won't be disappointed if you come here with an open mind and a willingness to try."

"Incredible experience! I was on a desperate search for someone to help me because other practitioners were telling me I was fine and that I should just stop favoring my left side. I'd lost my quality of life to pain and it seemed like no matter what I did, I was just making things worse. Thankfully, Dr. H uses a lot of great therapies that got to the root of my issues: Electro-acuscope, Shockwave Therapy, and custom orthotics to name a few! He also referred me to a physical therapist which made a world of difference in addition to the treatments. She agreed it was better that I saw him firs..."

"I was referred to Dr. Heshmat for a worker's comp injury and I have to say I am super impressed! Dr. Heshmat & his team are always welcoming with a smile, very friendly and incredibly competent. Dr. Heshmat has been treating my knee/leg with the electro- acuscope and I've seen more progress in 2 months than I did in 4 months of physical therapy. I will be seekng additional out of pocket treatment for my neck & shoulders because they do such a great job here. Highly recommend!"
More
"Dr. Heshmat and his staff are amazing. He helped fix my back pain when traditional doctors were completely unhelpful. He is very thorough, and takes a lot of time to listen to all of your concerns and to do a full work-up. His knowledge about the body is unparalleled! And, his assistant Sylvana is a true gem. She is kind, friendly, and professional. I'll never work with anyone else again!"

"Nothing but great things happened for me when I came here. I understand my Injury because of this place, Dr. I had 2 treatments and felt the difference my second session! Within a week my injury has gone from a 9 to a 0. I  recommend this place to anybody who is looking to get rid of pain ASAP and most importantly learn about your injury. Dr. Heshmat was very professional and fool of information that I would have never known had I not come here. I will be coming here for as long as I need to along with my daughter who is an athlete. Great service awesome Dr. , nice staff this place is ..."

"I'm a typical Bay Area software engineer, and as such, I sit front of my computer all day, work long hours, and spend way too much of my away-from-computer time hunched over, staring at my phone.My bad habits and posture over the years have caused a gradual onset of chronic upper back, shoulder and neck pain. For several months, I could not find a comfortable sitting position, spent a bunch of time with chiropractors/massage therapists, and took painkillers daily to manage my pain.I am currently receiving pain treatment from Dr. Heshmat, and it has worked wonders. The chronic pain is going ..."

"I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Heshmat on my injured knee for about 2 months now. In those two months I have seen and felt more progress toward healing than I did in four months of physical therapy somewhere else. The Accuscope he uses does miracle work! Dr. Heshmat is kind, super knowledgable, and is helping me understand how I could be doing things, like walking & stretching, differently to help my body instead of staying in an injured state. He and Silvana are so friendly, always asking how my day was, plans for the weekend etc. I feel like I know them personally now, and I com..."

"Dr.heshmat is such a great doctor. He treated my upper and lower back on 2 different occasions and both times he did a great job and I left with my back feeling 10 times better. he gave me accurate and good information to take care of my back. Also Sevana, who sits at the front desk, is very nice and makes this office run smoothly. I highly recommend anyone to come to this office for their chiropractic needs because dr. H and Sevana are great."

"Great Dr. Best treatments changing your life by best treatments and machine working with the newest technology"

"About a couple of months ago, I went to see Dr. Heshman for pain relief. He doesn't only concentrate in relieving your pain but  also helps you to avoid pain in the future. Up until now, I haven't had the need to go back and see him again but I will always be thankful for his great service."
More
"I started going to Dr. Heshmat about two weeks ago when I had an incredibly bad backache. It's kind of been a chronic issue, and has flared up once before in the past that nearly had me bed-ridden. I did NOT want to get to that state, especially with two out of town vacations coming up two weekends in a row, one of which being a bachelorette party to Vegas. I work in healthcare, constantly hunched over to do my work and Dr. Heshmat was recommended to me by a patient of mine. So when my back flared up, I had my administrative assistant call and schedule me with one of three referrals. Dr. He..."

"Having a pinched sciatic nerve, I was barley able to walk. Within two weeks of treatment at the Heshmat Pain Management Clinic the nerve was released and continued visits have aligned my spine.. I am free of pain am enjoying my new lease on life. The Heshmat doctors Nasim and Alan are very knowledgeable in their field and the staff  are truly concerned for your overall wellness to thank for addressing my numerous issues ."

"I have been going to the Heshmat Pain Management clinic as of February. I had a slip and fall down a flight of stairs and the stairs won. I was black and blue, limped with pain, had lost feeling in my fingers and arm, it was ugly painful fall. Dr. Heshmat started with a basic treatment to measure and ease the pain, it was like magic. I could not believe how much better I felt after the first visit! I really didn't know if this was going to work and to my surprise it did amazingly.During my third visit, it was recommended to change my sleeping pillow to assist with the healing of the neck, w..."

"I have never posted a review on Yelp before but I have had such great service at Heshmat that I had to write a review.  I have been seeing Toma, who is a massage therapist there, for over 6 months.  I had extreme knee pain and went to see a specialist who recommended I stay off my knee.  Toma thought it may be my IT band and she was correct.  I have absolutely no knee pain.  She has also helped me with shoulder, neck, and back issues from being on the computer.  She really listens to your concerns and addresses your needs accordingly.  I always feel so relaxed, pain free and ready to go bac..."

"Dr. Nasim Gorgani and Dr. Alen Heshmat are both professional and friendly. They listen and work hard to provide the therapeutic results to restore health. I went in feeling tightness in my neck after sleepless nights and stress at work and obtain very relieving chiropractic treatment. I will go back and highly recommend this practice to everyone."
More
"The best Chiroprator i ever had. Do see them."
More
"I've been going to Heshmat Pain Management clinic for several years, initially for acupressure massage with Minal Patel and now for chiropractic massage with Toma due to an insurance change.  Both therapists are amazing and I would highly recommend them, especially if your insurance covers the visits.  Toma is extremely skilled and knows how to treat my pain points i.e. shoulder, neck, back, shin splints.  I won't even go to a spa for a massage anymore because very few therapists are as effective.  I love coming to this clinic for my treatments and would highly recommend them!"
More
"I received acupuncture treatment from Minal Patel and had a massage therapy session with Toma. They both did an excellent job and Minal really took the time to understand what my specific issues were and tailor her acupuncture treatment to relieve some of the stress and pain I was feeling. It was the most relaxing acupuncture session I have had and I am definitely coming back again for some more treatments. Toma did an excellent job in focusing on my pain point areas and I felt very relaxed during and after the session."
More
"They're healers, not a business. Latest in technology and knowledge. The electropulse and acuscope are not painful; you just need to tell him to go a little lighter. The doctors (both Heshmat) take a lot of time to listen.Their massage therapists are wonderful. Toma is very intuitive, sensitive, intelligent, and knowledgeable and Amalia has acupressure and acupuncture experience and is also sensitive."
More
"I've been seeing Toma for massages at Heshmat for 6 months and have been loving them. She is skilled, friendly and wise! The office staff is efficient and friendly. I've been to several other clinics for massages and this is by far the best at scheduling, creating a peaceful and simple environment. The receptionist is always welcoming and my massage is always on time. I've seen other massage therapists there and have been highly satisfied."
More
"This is the best chiropractic office i have been. The Electro-acuscope's high degree of effectiveness in non-invasive pain relief and promotion of healing is based upon a series of electric and electromagnetic manipulations of the patient's tissues. Awesome machine! anyway the doctor is great and down to earth. i really like this place"
More
"Had one of the best massages ever here today. The woman who massaged was professional and clearly understand muscle groups and pressure. She used lotion and was careful not to get in my hair. Lighting, music and ambiance were great. Will return!"
More
"I had an appointment at Heshmat last week.  I was impressed with the service.  Specifically I was happy with the focused attention that I got towards an old injury (hamstring) and careful adjustments I got for my neck and back. Overall, I would definitely recommend Heshmat as a chiropractic or pain management clinic and will look forward to coming back here."
More
"Today I came here for my 3rd acupuncture session with Minal Patel.   It's great to be able to get chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage here in the same clinic, all covered within my insurance plan for chiropractic care.My first 2 acupuncture sessions here this past month were to focus on some tightness and minor pain in my lower back and arms/wrists, as I do a lot of physical work as a massage therapist and marathon runner (both help me with my endurance).For those 2 sessions Minal applied needles in my neck and shoulders, lower back, wrists, and ankles.   She also applied cupping to my u..."

"Dr Heshman is not all about signing u up for a bunch of visits he wants to see you and cure you and then let you live a life that is free of pain. he's got a great style with patients and great tools to help diagnose the cause of pain and he knows the best way to treat you for maximum results. ive used him several times and can recommend him without any concern. Great guy and super cool staff too!"
More
"Today was day three of a migraine that my regular doctors and meds couldn't get rid of. Thank goodness one of my nurses recommended acupuncture to me yesterday. I went to the heshmat clinic today for my first ever acupuncture treatment. I felt better right away and I've been relaxing at home, pain and drug free, ever since. I'm going again the day after tomorrow. This place is great."
More
"the best pain management place i have ever been in. Caring, knowledgeable and honest staff. Highly recommend it."
More
"Friendly and professional.  Having a great deal of experience with many different Chiropractors I can say Dr. Heshmat is one of the best.  He takes a real holistic and consultative approach to making you feel better.  If you need a Chiropractor I would give him a try."
More
"REMARKABLE! I suffer from severe back pains and sciatica from a herniated disk after carrying twins almost full term... The chiropractors at this office are so knowledgeable and helpful. I always feel comfortable and confident when leaving their appointment. I had never been in more pain than before I saw them for the first time- After their treatment with the TENS unit, etc- I felt instant relief! They also ordered me a special pillow for my chronic neck pains I used to have. Since then the pain in my neck has not returned. Occasionally, I will have pesky back pains, but after a visit or t..."

"I have been to Heshmat Pain Management Clinic a few times. I have been very pleased and definitely recommend going here. The massage therapist I recommend is, Jaime. I never have to tell her where my problems are because she can tell by the way I walk/stand. The over all atmosphere is very pleasant and every one was very professional and welcoming."
More
"I called last week with severe neck pain. I couldn't hold my head up at work. I was able to get squeezed in that afternoon. Thankfully! I am always impressed when I come here which is about 1-2 times a year as they are so results oriented. All I need to do is present the problem and they take care of the rest. I always get a detailed explanation as to the nature of the problem, how it could have arisen and clear instructions on what to do once I get home. There is no pressure to return for multiple visits especially if the problem is remedied. It always is! This most recent visit Dr. Heshma..."

"i am really happy with the Heshmat pain  Management clinic , Adria Amenti has really helped me with  Acupuncture . Dr h has been very helpful with making the pain i was in to go away. thank you all for all your help. if i could give you ten stars i would."
More
"I was recommended to the clinic because of excessive migraines that my general Dr. could not fix...other than pain medications.  My migraines were so bad that they got to the point where I would vomit uncontrollably...randomly like in my car. Way not normal.  After suffering from migraines for about 15 years and over a year of excessive ones in just ONE visit with Dr. H and Melanie I am migraine free!!!!  I do go back and see them for follow ups but just routine - I have not had a single headache or migraine.  The entire clinic is great, very informative and helpful!"
More
"Heshmat Pain Management has been a real life-saver for me! I came to them with chronic hip and lower back pain which I had been living with for several years. After 4-5 treatments, the pain had subsided SUBSTANTIALLY. I was able to stop taking medication (first Neurontin, then just Advil) and get back to exercising regularly. I have been basically pain-free for well over a year now. When I do have a flare-up, I go in for one treatment and am usually "good to go". I have never felt pressured to schedule additional visits. And while their fee is a little higher than a typical chiropractor, I ..."
More
"Dr. H is very skilled.   I saw my previous chiropractor for years without any improvement.  Dr. H has been able to treat my  chronic neck  prain (& whatever else happens to fall out of alignment from there) in a minimal amount of sessions.  I live in San Mateo and am willing to make the drive to Palo Alto to see Dr. H!  Congrats on your new location!"
