Knee / Back Pain
"I was in a work-related accident 7 years ago. After two years of physical therapy, arthroscopy on both knees, and treatments for my back, the doctor said 'you are the best that you will ever get and you must learn to live with it.' After roughly 5 years of 'dealing with the pain' and multiple prescriptions, I woke up one day in November 2009 with more pain than I had on the day of the accident. After being bedridden for a week, I figured anything is better than what I have been doing.
I was referred to Dr. Christine at A Way of Life Acupuncture by a long-time friend. After my first treatment with Dr. Christine, I was not only out of bed, I was back to my favorite pastime, bowling. It was the best decision to date that I have made for the frequent major pains in my back and knees. I wish that I had the time to get acupuncture more frequently. If I let too much time between appointments, the pain gets bad enough to put me down for days at a time. When that happens, I schedule an appointment with Dr. Christine, and not only is the therapy very relaxing, but it also takes my pain level to almost zero. Every visit reminds me that I should be going more frequently, but even if I can not, acupuncture still takes the pain away in a single treatment.
I refer everyone I know to A Way of Life Acupuncture. Unfortunately, many of my friends are not believers yet. One day they will be in need of alternative treatment and they will see that acupuncture will work for them. Dr. Christine asks questions, listens to your problems, and with a spin of a needle or placing a needle in different places, she will make the pain go away. I have never been to another acupuncture because Dr. Christine has always listened to my problems, fixed the issues, and never given me any grief. I will continue to visit A Way of Life Acupuncture as long as my problems persist. I know they will take care of me with a smile on their face. Thank you, Dr. Christine, and see you soon."
