ARC: Acupuncture and Physical Therapy
Eris Belen
If at First you Don’t Succeed, Don’t Give Up!

Eris Belen, an active and driven woman of 82 years was recently a patient at ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center. Eris was suffering with sciatica down both sides of her legs. Eris had been suffering for 3 months and the pain just kept getting worse and worse.


Eris was very upset that she couldn’t go to pilates or ride her bike, both of which she did three times a week. Eris decided that something had to be done, so she went to a Sports Clinic and received physical therapy, but Eris said, “I didn’t feel as though they addressed my problem, I didn’t get individualized attention”. So, unfortunately the traditional physical therapy had no effect on her sciatica pain. Finally, a friend of hers recommended that she come to ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center for treatment.


Eris never had acupuncture before, but she said with amazement, “After the second treatment, I was already feeling some relief”. Eris received medical massage, manual therapy, acupuncture with stimulation and exercise instruction as part of her therapy at ARC. After a complete month’s worth of visits, Eris is now back to pilates, bike riding, and cleaning. Eris said, “My pain was excruciating, I had to sit on a chair in the shower, it was so bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, my pain was a 10… now it is a 0”.


Eris was impressed with the individualized attention she received at ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center. Eris went on to say that “the staff was very professional and showed that they genuinely cared about the patients”. Eris now carries business cards of ARC’s and passes them out to her friends. Eris proclaimed, “I believe 100% in the multi-disciplinary approach that ARC applies to their therapy!”
