CHRONIC PAIN and FATIGUE
After struggling for several years with chronic pain and degenerating health, I was introduced to acupuncture. That was the answer to my daily prayer to find relief from pain and regain some quality of life.
Now, one year later, I am well on the way to recovering my health and am brimming with optimism.
I have always been active and despite having had back problems and surgery in 1994, I am an avid motorcyclist. My husband and I were planning a month long motorcycle tour of Europe to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary in 2006. In June of 2004, I suffered a severe fall down a stairway and despite many chiropractic sessions, I was unable to stand straight or walk for even a short distance without pain. I fought the pain 24/7, and went to work every day, but was completely exhausted. My quality of life was severely diminished. I could no longer do even simple household chores. In October of 2005, 1 suffered a spontaneous break in my pelvis. After that, the pain was intolerable. By Christmas, I could barely work. Even sitting was painful. Doctors said my body wasn't healing. All they could offer were pain medications. How could I ever tour Europe on a motorcycle in 6 months? My boss, in her compassion, gave me a gift card for an acupuncture session. What did I have to lose?
I remember the day, December 29, 2005, I sat with Shari and cried all the while she tried to explain to me how acupuncture works. My body was so broken and in so much pain, I told her I could not stand to listen. All I wanted was the treatment.
From that day forward, my health improved dramatically. By February 7, 2006, I was pain free! My body was healing. I continued my treatments, and today, one year later, I walk 5 miles daily and have lost 35 pounds.
I have always had a fear of needles, but Dr. David has such a skilled, gentle technique that I soon welcomed the treatments which were always relaxing and pleasant. The entire office staff is supportive, kind and caring. I have never been treated more kindly or with more compassion by any medical office staff anywhere!
I encourage anyone that feels hopeless about their health issues and believes that nothing can be done for them to consider acupuncture. I'm glad I did.
