Jami, Accounting Manager

Jami headshotI spent the first 20 years of my life living in Yuma, Arizona. I have been working in the business industry for over 8 years. Shortly after college, in 2003 I moved to Northern California where I started my career in the mortgage industry. During that time I not only met my husband Dr. Darren Scheirman but was also introduced to Chiropractic.

For several months I had been suffering from migraines. My M.D. had prescribed me numerous amounts of migraine medication. I quickly became a guinea pig for treatment as nothing seemed to work. All of the tests that I underwent came up inconclusive. At this point, I didn’t know what to do. It had been over 30 days straight of migraine pain.

Due to my frustration with the medical system, I decided to go to a chiropractor. I was and he suggested that I stop taking all of the medications. First of all, they didn’t seem to be helping my condition anyway, and second, they may have actually been one of the triggers of the migraine. I was always very open to chiropractic and made a decision to give it a try…. 100% of my attention. With the support of Dr. Scheirman, I stopped taking all medications and focused on a wellness approach. After numerous weeks of consistent chiropractic care, my migraines started to subside. Soon after, my migraines disappeared.

I do still get migraines from time to time, but Chiropractic care is the reason for their dramatic decrease. I now know the importance of chiropractic care in not only alleviating symptoms but also allowing me to live a normal life. It feels great to have my life back and to have control over my migraines rather than have them control me.

Because I have seen the value in chiropractic I look forward to helping you in any way that I can. I look forward to meeting you and seeing you achieve your health goals!
