Successful Neck Pain Treatment
A 61-year old woman came in for treatment in March 2011. She had chronic constant neck pain for the last 16-17 years due to herniated cervical discs (C4 & C5) from an auto injury. Her previous treatment regimen included massage and stretching which would provide temporary relief. The patient also had impaired neck mobility to the point that she was only able to rotate her neck less than halfway to her shoulder - at least 70% restriction.
Since the patientís disc injury was so old, I recommended twice-a-week acupuncture sessions for at least 4 weeks and gave the patient supplements and topical suggestions to complement her acupuncture therapy. By the 4th acupuncture session, the patient reported 50% improvement and showed 40% increase in neck mobility. By the patientís 8th session, she had a 90% improvement in her neck rotation from left to right. She had almost no pain with periods of no pain at all and stated she hadnít felt that good since before injuring her neck.
The results have been sustained ever since.
Successful Treatment for Allergies/Asthma
A male patient, age 34, had come for treatment in 2011. He had been diagnosed with multiple conditions including severe allergies, chronic pain, obesity, hypertension, adrenal fatigue as well as potential thyroid problems. The MD had prescribed an endless list of medication.
A combined treatment program was prescribed. It consisted of acupuncture, dietary changes as well as herbal remedies. The patient was treated with herbal remedies for two weeks. After another two weeks with other herbal remedies, his sinusitis had been completely cleared liquid herbal remedies were applied in the following three weeks. The total treatment lasted for about 3 months (2-3 times a week).
After a few sessions the patient had improved significantly. His cough had been greatly reduced and the patientís nasal inflammation was gone. The patientís energy level had increased dramatically. The results have been sustained ever since.
Successful Treatment for Disc Herniation/Back Pain
A female patient, 27 years old, came for treatment in September 2011. She had suffered from a herniated disc in her lower back for many years including severe and permanent pain travelling down the left leg (9 out of 10). The injury resulted from a work accident. The MD had prescribed muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory during the previous two years. It produced little relief.

A combined treatment program consisting of chiropractic adjustments, decompression therapy, acupuncture and herbal remedies has been applied for 6 sessions (2 times a week) so far (ongoing treatment expected to last for another few weeks). The sessions last 30 minutes each. Preventative maintenance will most likely be implemented upon completion of the treatment (once a month).
The results have been promising so far as the symptoms have been reduced by 90%. The patient is able to work again without any restrictions.
