Heel Pain, Weight Loss, & Stress Relief
My name is Kari K. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in April 2010. My main issue was SEVERE left heel pain. I had been experiencing this pain for close to a year. I had tried heel pads, inserts, orthotics, pain medication from my doctor and physical therapy. Nothing helped and the pain was dictating my life. I felt like I was 80 years old, "Oh, I have to go down the stairs to get the laundry." It affected me mentally, emotionally as well as physically. It even affected me spiritually. The pain was every day, but worse in the evening when I would get up after sitting down for awhile. The pain was so severe that I was walking on my tiptoes. I couldn't exercise like I wanted to. I became depressed and very irritable. I had lost interest in the things in life that gave me joy.
I began feeling some improvement after approximately 2 weeks of treatment. At this time, I feel 90% better. I continue with treatments and have found that I pay more attention to my overall I health in general. I've started eating better and exercising. To date, I've lost 11#. During this period of early treatments, I also had a lot of stress going on in my family life. The acupuncture treatments calmed me and helped me cope with the stress.
I would recommend acupuncture to anyone. I work in the traditional Western medical field and have found this to be an EXCELLENT complement to that. The staff at Abundance Acupuncture are caring and attentive. They do excellent work and listen to your symptoms in order to treat you
