Patricia Gaudette, an expressive, positive minded, 66 year old, received treatment for her arthritis pain at ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center. What made Patricia seek treatment was her lack of mobility and pain due to her arthritis in her hips. The trouble with mobility started about 3 years ago, and had gotten progressively worse. The inability to move without pain affected Patricia both physically and emotionally. Patricia had trouble cleaning the house, was tired all the time, and she was becoming increasingly depressed, not wanting to go anywhere. Patricia said, “My husband kept telling me my next vehicle was going to be a wheelchair!” Patricia tried various medications to help control the pain, but they were only affective for a short time. And, as the condition progressed, the medications were less and less affective. Patricia told her doctor that she wanted to try acupuncture and her doctor put her in touch with ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center. Because Patricia hadn’t had acupuncture before, she didn’t know what to expect. Patricia said with delight, “I was amazed that I got some relief after the first treatment!”. Patricia’s family even noticed a difference right away. Patricia went on to say, “During subsequent treatments, I realized that this was the best thing I could have done for myself!”. While receiving therapy at ARC, Patricia had Physical Therapy, Manual Therapy, Moxibustion, Medical Massage and Electrical Stimulation with Acupuncture. After a month of consistent therapy, Patricia is able to do so much more. She now looks forward to getting out and doing things. Patricia went on to say, “I’m no longer depressed and have more energy… I really didn’t know what to expect, but what I got was a miracle!”.
