Alright yes, my name is Barbara Graham and I started coming here for acupuncture in 2009, after years of back problems, um, which started after my children were born, um. Wow, that’s a long time..yes, my left hip would, uh, just go out of socket and my left leg would be paralyzed, I could hardly walk with my left leg I’d be in so much pain. And I went to a chiropractor for years, and for a long time they would help me, uh, but it got so severe that my.
Chiropractor said he couldn’t help me anymore that I needed just go see an orthopedic surgeon. So, I did that in 2009, and the surgeon told me I was gonna have to have a disc removed, that, uh, it was in really bad shape and that I would have to go in for surgery and I just couldn’t stand the thought of having my back operated on. So I had a real good friend who had come here to the acupuncture clinic for, uh, a long time and she said please before.
You have surgery go see, uh, the acupuncturist. So I thought, what the heck you know, I have nothing to lose at this point. I didn’t want to have surgery. so I came here for treatment and after three treatments my pain was gone in my leg and in my back and since then I have been pain free in my back. I also while I was coming here, had a Plantars Fasciitis, which if you’ve ever had that can know it’s very painful and, uh, I had gone to a foot.
Chronic Back Pain, Plantar Fasciitis
Doctor and he had ordered one of those very expensive boots for me to have to sleep in at night and so while I was here for my back I asked the doctor if he could take care of Plantars Fasciitis and he said he could, uh, I have to tell you it was very painful but, it worked. After one treatment I didn’t have it anymore and I haven’t had it since and that was in 2009, so I can’t say enough for acupuncture. I think it’s wonderful and I.
