I am a 65 year old woman who spent the last 4 years in an electric wheelchair due to severe Degenerative Disk Disease, MS and Rheumatoid Arthritis. I needed help with all activities of daily living and could not even put on my own socks. I was bed-bound with constant pain, spasm and numbness in my lower back and legs. My MS was so bad that I didn’t care if I lived or died. After having 5 major back surgeries in the past 5 years, my doctors told me that there was nothing more they could do for me and that I should just go for pain therapy. However, I can’t take narcotics because they make me sick. I struggled to find an answer and prayed for help. I started acupuncture with limited expectations, just hoping for some pain relief. After only 2 treatments I was delighted to find that I could stand and walk a few feet and after 12 treatments I am walking a ½ mile a day without pain. I have put my electric wheelchair away and have not needed as much as a Tylenol since the acupuncture treatments. Not only is my back pain-free, my MS seems to be in remission and the pain from my Rheumatoid Arthritis has disappeared. My Rheumatologist asked for David’s information so he can direct other patients to him.
Thank you David for giving me back my life!
