Wayne Free, a motorcycle loving young man of 44, has been suffering from neck pain
for over five years. The pain was a result of a motorcycle accident leaving his neck
area in constant pain. Wayne was in too much pain to ride a motorcycle, he wasn't
getting very much sleep and driving for work was extremely uncomfortable. Wayne sought
treatment with an orthopedist, a chiropractor, and traditional physical therapy,
in the hopes of getting some relief. He tried pain medications and epidural shots…
all supplied only temporary relief.
At a visit with his rheumatologist, it was recommended that he come to ARC Physical
Therapy and Pain Center for treatment. Willing to try anything, Wayne agreed to receive
acupuncture and cupping treatments along with massage and physical therapy. Upon
visiting ARC, Wayne felt as though the staff was very helpful, polite and knowledgeable,
but most of all encouraging. After a couple of treatments, Wayne was sore and even
got a headache… but with the encouragement from ARC's staff and the recommendation
from his Dr., he persevered on.
Wayne's pain is now down from a level 9 out of 10 to a 1, even a 0, out of 10. His
range of motion has improved. Wayne is now able to turn his head left and right,
making driving for work more comfortable and getting a good night's sleep more common.
He even started riding his motorcycle again. He recommends ARC Physical Therapy and
Pain Center to the men he works with who have back pain. Wayne is glad he hung in
there with his therapy and now the only pain in his neck is his nosy neighbors!
