When you think “chiropractor” you usually think it’s someone who manipulates your muscles and joints to relieve your pain. Often the pain comes back and you need another treatment (or 50). Dr. Meir Tako is not that type of chiropractor, he is a “healer” of the highest order. I say this because not only has he relieved my own pain resulting from various traumatic injuries I’ve sustained over the years, but he’s also eliminated chronic pain decades after it afflicted me. Don’t ask me how he does it - it’s magic. I’ve had a lot to contend with pain-wise. I had osteo-arthritis in my hips, ultimately receiving bilateral hip resurfacing prostheses about 20 years ago. I’ve been an active martial for 52 years and you can imagine the many issues that has created. Simply put, Dr. Tako’s treatment is revolutionary and I recommend him to anyone who is tired of the multiple chiropractic treatments that seem to become routine with aches and pains, and don’t resolve your pain in the long term.
I have seen Doctor Tako for three years and he has already become my go to doctor whenever I feel off. I used to try to see physician doctors and also traditional Chinese doctors, but they could not help much about my problems. Luckily I was referred by a close friend to Doctor tako, he was able to find out the root cause by his unique way of testing called PDTR , together with his nutritional treatment , significantly improved my overall health. Some of my chronic issues have completed gone. At very beginning, I was a little bit confused about his way of treating because this is something I never experienced before. But after seeing many doctors and going no where, my intuition told me I must try new things. I am glad that I followed my intuition and regularly see him every week for three years, right now I become a happier and healthier person and I feel very lucky to have Doctor tako in my life. He is truly a magical healer in my eyes. I recommend all my friends to Doctor tako, I told them even they don’t feel obvious issues right now, simply getting nutritional treatment from him can help to prevent imbalance and further to improve longevity. By the time that western medical can test out you have something wrong, you probably have developed the weakness long time ago, this is how I view this.
I need to share what a great experience I had at the Chiropractic Way with Dr. Tako and his office staff. Before I moved out of the Bay Area, I went to Dr. Tako for a few years for various health issues. Initially, I had chronic fatigue due to low iron levels that kept dropping even after supplementation. I reached a dead end with my Primary Care doctor, and was desperate because I was so fatigued I could hardly work. I decided to give Dr. Tako a try, because a friend was raving about how he helped her small son with digestive issues that weren’t solved by his pediatrician. I was initially taken aback by his nutrition and muscle testing methods, but he answered all of my questions over time. I was concerned since it wasn’t covered by my insurance, but I figured i could give it 6 months, at most a year. I figured, in the least this shouldn’t hurt me, would yield some information, and a year’s worth of payment isn’t the end of the world, especially since I really needed help and wanted an expert who had good experience with nutrition. I had been trying nutrition supplements on my own in previous years and didn’t get any results. After a few months I did start to feel better, and I also started noticing the weakness and strength that he would find during testing. I also like that his goal is not to keep you on supplements indefinitely, but to strengthen your body enough so it repairs itself and you no longer need them. I’m so glad I stayed, because not only was my iron issue cleared up, but also my low thyroid, adrenal fatigue (which had also been previously diagnosed by an ObGyn, but she didn’t have treatment), and my endometriosis cramps. Not only that, but I had been struggling with infertility for 7.5 years, and had an early miscarriage before I saw him. After a couple years of seeing him, I had another early miscarriage, then got pregnant and had a healthy baby girl! And, I am now pregnant again 18 months later! I can’t directly attribute the pregnancies to Dr. Tako’s treatment (because we weren’t targeting fertility), but I feel like my body was just getting healthier as I visited him, and maybe this is what I needed. I know there are a lot of skeptics of this field, but Dr. Tako is one of the best, so you are removing a lot of uncertainty by visiting him. I will always be grateful for my time with Dr. Tako and his staff!
Dr. Tako helped me recover from a shoulder injury where my ortho had recommended surgery as the only option. I met Dr. Tako after 4 months of intensive physio and walked out from my first session with the most movement and least pain since my injury. I was able to get back to playing tennis after 4 weeks! Dr. Tako has a unique method that aims to find the root of the issue and resolve that rather than treat the symptoms. I highly recommend Dr. Tako for functional medicine and chronic pain issues.
I pulled my back and the pain was so intense, I laid flat on the floor for hours. I saw Dr. Tako and he performed some adjustments which immediately made me feel better. But then he did simple arm and leg strength tests and found the root of the problem, my digestive system (intestines) was sensitive to dairy! This caused tightness in all my surrounding muscles which lead to the back injury. I laid off dairy and took supplements to clean out my system, and with each bathroom visit, the remaining pain instantly decreased. Dr. Tako has my full recommendation!
I have been going to The Chiropractic Way since the late 1990's. Dr Meir Tako took over the practice around 2012 and has been adjusting me since then. I rarely have problems, but when I do, he has been able to resolve them. I highly recommend Dr Tako and The Chiropractic Way!
I've been to many chiropractors for my neck and shoulders but somehow the pain just doesn't go away. Unlike many chiropractors, Dr Tako has a unique method to diagnose and treat. He finds the root of my problems and does his magic and instantly I feel relief from my pain. It's been a week and I'm still feeling great. I highly recommend him!
Dr Tako's treatment is pure magic. I'm a pretty tough person. I rarely get injured but I managed to pull my leg muscles a couple weeks in a soccer pickup game and has felt lots of pain ever since. In the first session, he first tried to find all the stress points in my whole body which might contribute to the injury and improve those parts first. And after he worked on my actual injured part, my knee/leg muscles felt much more relaxed and flexible, the pain was reduced a lot instantly. Looking forward to my next treatment.
I have been a client of Dr. Tako for over four years. He has totally changed the way my body operates internally and its skeletal structure. Nutritionally he has addressed weak or unbalanced organs and their functioning. We've been in the fine-tuning phase for some time now to keep my organs' operations in equilibrium and functioning strongly. I never believed in chiropractic services, but he has completely erased that falsehood. My neck and back were problematic for years, but he has fixed them and reversed years of spinal and hip misalignment. I am a very satisfied and pain free client that is completely changed from my first visits!
