Alen Heshmat, D.C.

(39) Chiropractic & Pain Management
"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."

"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!"

"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."

"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 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!"

"The team at The Heshmat Pain Clinic is awesome.  They know how to make me smile!"

"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
"Dr. Heshmat is amazing! I get treated at this office for headaches.i am usually in and out in one visit! My headache is gone by the end of the visit, and im pain free for at least a few weeks. Highly recommend the doc's at this office."
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."

"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 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."

"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 ..."

"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!"
More
"I only get around to writing Yelp reviews when a business really impresses me.  Heshmat Pain Management is one of those businesses. I have severe, complex migraines that end up messing up my whole body.  I have found that if I go see Dr. Heshmat when I feel a migraine coming on, I can seriously reduce the intensity and duration of the headache, in addition to avoiding the complex symptoms.  Also I find that I am desperate to see her after I have had a bad migraine because she is able to get my body back to normal in 1 visit; otherwise, it takes about a week for my body to resettle itself. ..."
