Debra Kerr
Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis no longer limiting the most simple of tasks

Debra Kerr, a vibrant, 51 year old woman has been suffering from fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis for several years. Her pain, in her lower back and left shoulder, was consistently a 7-8 out of 10. Unfortunately, her pain was limiting her from performing simple daily activities such as shopping, because she had to rest too much… laundry, because she couldn't lift the baskets full of clothes… and vacuuming, because her back was too painful.


Debra first sought treatment with her rheumatologist and took pain pills and used hot and cold pack to treat the pain. After that treatment did not give Debra much relief, her rheumatologist recommended ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center for further help. She was a little nervous about the acupuncture, but amazed with the relief she felt.


Along with the acupuncture, Debra also received physical therapy, massage therapy and exercise. After ten visits, her pain has decreased to a 1-2 out of 10. She recently went shopping all day with her mother and played darts with her sons on her birthday!


Debra feels that the staff at ARC is very friendly, very concerned and personally involved with her well-being. Debra stated, "They noticed things my family members didn't notice, and I have a close family!" Debra is hoping that her oldest son is going to get treated at Arc for his persistent back problems.
