Right Shoulder Pain and Gallbladder
Chronic Pain After Car Accident
Chronic "Tennis Elbow"
A few months back I was experiencing intense pain on my right side. After an ultrasound, I was told I had cysts on my ovaries that were activated around my cycle. The treatment plan was to get on birth control pills or have my ovaries removed. I wasn’t interested in either of those options so I called Dr. Ron. I have been seeing him for over a year for a digestive issue. He also helped me with my bladder so I thought I might as well ask. He said that visceral manipulation could definitely be a helpful option and it was great. After two session, I had no more pain and it hasn’t returned. What I learned is – it never hurts to ask – it’s amazing how our bodies want to heal themselves – they just need a little encouragement from Dr. Ron.
In 2011 I was in a high speed, rear-end accident and suffered from chronic pain, fatigue and other health issues. I went to doctors of every type and nothing relieved my symptoms. I heard about visceral manipulation from my physical therapist and reluctantly decided to give it a try. Upon meeting Dr. Mariotti, he was very professional, compassionate and explained the process thoroughly, putting me at ease. A few days after the treatment I started to feel better and after my second treatment I felt fabulous. Soon after seeing Dr. Mariotti I was able to regain my active lifestyle. I also believe that visceral manipulation helped me to conceive very quickly after deciding to become pregnant. I highly recommend visceral manipulation.

I have suffered from chronic right shoulder pain for a number of years but I always related it to my history of several auto accidents and a ski injury. I took NSAIDs until my stomach couldn't tolerate any more, used heat and received regular therapeutic massages, all of which provided only temporary relief. But the pain always returned. I also had a history of chronic heartburn, which I finally related to my chronic NSAID use and gallstones. After being frustrated with the traditional medical practitioners telling me to just continue taking antacids I decided it was time to try some other type of medicine. This was difficult for me as a seasoned RN who always supported traditional medicine. I saw my first Naturopathic Dr. who referred me to Dr. Ron for Visceral Manipulation for my chronic heartburn after some very different lab tests had revealed a number of food sensitivities. I was skeptical but made an appointment. I was impressed at the first visit when Dr. Ron was able to tell me where my discomforts were by just a light hands-on exam before we even discussed my symptoms. He did some deep manipulations and told me I would feel achy and tired later that day but should feel better in the morning. I had to go to work and by the end of my shift I was so tired and achy all over so I went home, turned up the electric heating blanket and slept heavily. When I awoke the next morning my shoulder pain was not just better, but it was gone! The pain was referred pain from my gall bladder and the manipulation eased the congestion. Now I get treatments every 3 or 4 months and this maintains a pain free shoulder."
