"My name is Miranda Mead, I am a 23-year-old student earning my BFA in Digital Production at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in North Hollywood. I sit on average about 10 hours per day, with very few breaks in between which causes a lot of pain in my pelvis. I am a woman who lives successfully with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome).
I have experienced neck, upper back, lower back, and pelvis pain for about 10 years. This began after a sledding accident in Banff, Canada. I also experience Migraines. I also have PCOS which gives me irregular and exceptionally painful cycles.
I received weekly adjustments to realign my spine and pelvis, I also received weighted traction for my neck to fix my cervical curve, and was instructed to do regular stretching to help alleviate muscle stress. I also received acupuncture, have used Chinese herb blends, herbal supplements, homeopathic remedies, estrogen and metformin, prescribed pain meds (did not help), and receive regular reiki treatments
I came to Dr. Subias Glendale office in September 2016 because I needed to work with a Chiropractor who specializes in posture correction and more. He uses adjustments as well as muscle treatments.
Dr. Subia helped me alleviate my pain from sitting by working on the muscles around my pelvic area, muscles through my legs and into my lower middle back, shoulders and upper back. This has not only helped my spine, but it allows me to sit for longer periods of time. An unexpected and amazing bonus outcome is that my cycle has become regular, and I have been relieved most of my excruciating menstrual cramps. My migraines have almost been eliminated (weather is still a catalyst). I am able to engage in activities that I was unable to do before such as regular exercise (swimming, walking), I can carry heavier items due to my strengthening body, and I have more energy. My life has changed in so many positive healthy ways since getting treated by Dr. Subia, and I am so grateful”.

“I've had a number of injuries over the years, and of all the chiropractors and physical therapists I've seen, Dr Subia is THE very best. He is gentle, yet very effective; and even after just one visit...I always feel tremendous improvement when my body gets out of alignment. I am so grateful to have found him, and he's well worth the 3 hour drive I now have to make just to see him!!!"

"I have been a patient of Dr. Subia for a year now and I have only GREAT things to say about him!
To begin with, he's a very genuine and caring person. He makes you feel at ease when you come in for a treatment. He explains every technique he will use during your treatment and makes sure you are comfortable throughout the session.
He continues to amaze me with how much he cares about my well being. Whether it's staying late and putting in extra hours just to make sure he treats me or even coming in on a weekend! His kindness and generosity is humbling to say the least.
Another great attribute Dr. Subia has in spades is his passion for what he does. He's constantly researching the latest tools, techniques and information. And it's very clear to me that it comes from a place of genuine curiousity and interest in his profession. This is something I really pay attention to and value a lot. In short, Dr. Subia puts 110% effort into every single thing he does, and it all comes from the right place.
And finally, for those of you, like me, who have scoliosis. You will be pleased to hear that Dr. Subia managed to REVERSE my scoliosis by several degrees. I went from roughly 39 degrees to 31 degrees in just one year!
I highly recommend Dr.Subia and look forward to continuing my treatments and friendly chats with him in the coming years!"

"I have generally suffered from upper and lower back problems, mainly due to carrying around heavy books during my school days and most recently, due to working on a computer for 8 hours per day.
I had never visited a chiropractor before, but was happy with my experience - Dr. Subia had made sure to ask what kind of pressure I am OK with and felt much more relaxed after my visits - I was also experiencing headaches, which started to subside after my first visit and I started relying less and less on my bottle of Advil! Great Doctor, professional and friendly".

"Great doctor.. Had a sprain in my neck, and my lower back he took the time to relax the muscles and tendons instead of just cracking the back and neck... Highly recommend this doctor".

"I highly recommend Dr. Subia as a Chiropractor! I had a severe headache and he handled it in one gentle adjustment! He later treated me for whiplash and I was amazed at how fast he fixed it! I was also impressed by the care and time he took to do the examination. Very professional and friendly! "
