Dry Needling for Knee pain
Self-verified patient of Dr. Navid Mahooti - Posted on October 23rd, 2019
I have had pain in my knees for many years, especially after long hikes and or use with ladders, stairs etc. Dr. Mahooti suggested Dry Needling due to the tight nots of muscles on my outside if the knees and quads. I was amazed after the procedure the instant relief I had, including the increased feel of my range of motion. The pain of the needles was minor about a scale of 2/3 out of 10 and you get instant results during the needling. I highly recommend this treatment!
Dry needling my shoulder
Self-verified patient of Dr. Navid Mahooti - Posted on April 8th, 2019
I had been experiencing excruciating back/shoulder pain from muscle spasms. I had gone to the emergency room, chiropractor and general practice DR without relief. Pain for over a week. I was recommended to see Dr Mahooti for his dry needling expertise. immediately after putting the needle in my muscle the muscle spasms dissipated and went away completely. I left the Dr's office without any symptoms for which i had seen him for. I did feel some more pain later that night and for a part of the next day. But by the 2nd day after the procedure i was completely pain free!! It is a miracle. I was in so much pain. i made another appointment with the Dr to fix my hamstring in the same manner. The hamstring has been bothering me for over a year. i expect the same fantastic results for my hamstring. I recommend Dr. Mahooti 100% wholeheartedly. His technique is amazing. I felt very comfortable in his office and very easy Dr to talk with.
Trigger Point Dry Needling For Runners
Self-verified patient of Dr. Navid Mahooti - Posted on January 31st, 2019
I was referred to Dr. Mahooti after developing full blown sciatica as a result of a muscle injury. My glute muscle was so twisted and tightened up that it caused issues in my piriformis, hamstrings, calf and heel...I was about 1/3 of the way into my training for the Boston Marathon and was limping and crying as a result of the pain. One session, (about 15 total sticks) and within 3 days the pain had subsided significantly...5 days after I was able to run 10.5 miles with practically no discomfort. Over the past couple of weeks, I have kept up with the stretching and foam rolling and my leg has continued to improve. I am now running 100% pain-free. His treatment is nothing short of magical! He literally saved my marathon season!
Non-Surgical/Drug Free Solutions

I have seen Dr. Mahooti several times for different muscular problems. I spent several years training for various athletic endurance events including marathons, half-marathons, Ironman and half-iron distance events. Every time I encountered a serious training injury or setback, Dr. Mahooti helped me through with trigger point therapy and advice. More important to me is the fact that Dr. Mohooti is one of the only MD's I have met that understands the importance of diet and nutrition and the root causes of the diabetes and obesity epidemic in society ("diabesity"). He is the only MD I have met that understands the benefits high fat, low carbohydrate, zero processed food diet. Very refreshing.
CHANGED MY LIFE
Self-verified patient of Dr. Navid Mahooti - Posted on December 28th, 2018
I was dealing with shoulder pain for 10 years. It felt as though it was rolling out of socket and popping back in (very painful) . It occurred more often and with simple everyday moments. I tried everything from rest to physical therapy. I thought I would need surgery. I went to see doctor Mahooti and he was able to diagnose trigger points in my shoulder. After he performed the procedure, other than mild soreness, I full range of motion back in my shoulder without any pain. After years of discomfort and pain, I’m cured. Months later I pulled my back out and once again trigger points was the cause. It’s a relief to know that in just a few minutes with a non- surgical procedure and without drugs my muscles and body can be back to normal. Dr. Mahooti and his trigger point procedure changed my quality of life! Thank you! Joseph Rollo

I have had slight lower back pain in the past but never so bad to stop me from my normal routine. Regular treatments of massage therapy gave me relief. I have suffered from severe back pain for 6 months due to exercise. It was immediate pain when I came to a hault in the middle of a jog and my back has not been the same since. Prior to that I have not had serious back pain. I had tried massage therapy, massage rollers and stretching and nothing has given me relief from the pain until my recent visit to Dr Mahooti!! I walked into his office expecting to need xrays and a more serious problem. After a thourogh analysis of my body, Dr. Mahooti suggested I try therapeutic needling (trigger point injections). I have a big fear of needles but the pain I’ve had over the past 6 months was worse. I decided to try the needling technique and I had INSTANT relief as soon as I got off the table. I could turn, bend and stretch without pain! Truly amazing! I have told all my colleges about this treatment! Thank you Dr. Mahooti!

I've been experiencing severe knee and foot pain for over a year. After several rounds of ortho visits and PT I had minimal improvement. My PCP recommended Dr. Mahooti who did several myofascial trigger point injections. The improvement was immediate. I did have some pain in the injection area later in the day but it subsided within 24 hours. I'm continuing with PT but this time to stretch my muscles instead of strengthening them. It's working.

went to Dr Mahooti for sciatic pain. I had been having epidurals to control pain, but was concerned about long term steroid use. A nurse friend recommended Dr Mahooti. One treatment and I am pain free. The injection was very mild and short in duration. Pain elimination was immediate. I highly recommend Dr. Mahooti!

He is very personable and explains your condition in detail. He makes good use of an ultrasound machine to diagnosis and treat.
Significant improvement in chronic shoulder issue
Self-verified patient of Dr. Navid Mahooti - Posted on July 9th, 2018
I highly recommend Dr Mahooti for any muscular/sports medicine related issue. I have struggled with neck/shoulder pain for the past 20ish years and tried virtually every other treatment including physical therapy and chiropractic. Nothing has come close to the outcome that I've attained via Dr. Mahooti's treatment and guidance. I am markedly better such that I am working out and running pain free! It is simply incredible.
Pushes his trigger point therapy
Self-verified patient of Dr. Navid Mahooti - Posted on December 31st, 2017
I saw Dr. Mahooti for tendonitis. He immediately recommended the myofascial trigger point therapy, which involves placing needles directly into the tense muscle/s. I agreed with the therapy, as he promised me I would feel 95% better immediately. Three days later, I was in agony (worse than when I originally went in) and called the office to see what I should do and if this was normal. I was assured this was normal pain, and it would subside over the weekend. When it did not get any better, only worse, I called again, (now 10 days later), and they made me an appointment. When I returned, Dr. Mahooti wanted to do more trigger point therapy, this time on the muscles in my upper arm and shoulder. When I refused, stating that I felt that was what made me worse, he got very angry and defensive. He looked at me and said, "What exactly do you want? An MRI? Drugs? What?" I was so offended and truly disgusted I was speechless. I would be wary unless you specifically want this trigger point therapy, otherwise, I'd find a real doctor who is willing to listen to you and HELP.
