"I began acupuncture therapy 4 weeks ago. I was in a great deal of pain due to osteoarthritis in the feet, ankles, knees, and back. I was walking with a cane and was starting to walk in a bent over position. I was wearing Lidocaine patches on both feet and was still experiencing foot pain. Doctors offered me vicodin and knee replacements as a solution. I could only sleep 4 hours at a time at night before the back pain woke me. The rest of the night was spent tossing and turning, trying to get comfortable. My best friend was a bottle of Tylenol and a mild pain medication. I decided to take my health into my own hands. I needed to do something for a better quality of life. That is when I decided to try acupuncture with Paul Kim at Dr. Orlow's chiropractic office.
After only 8 treatments with acupuncture I am almost pain free. I am walking straight and sleeping 7-8 hours at a time. I feel so much better physically and emotionally. I am back to using my exercise bike 25 minutes a day which I was unable to use for 2 months due to the pain in my left knee. I have been working in my garden and doing housework again. Tylenol is no longer my best friend-no Tylenol or anti-inflammatory medication for 11 days!
I am very satisfied and pleased with the progress I have made with acupuncture therapy.
