Beverly Powell
Hope for a Better Quality of Life
Beverly Powell, a patient of ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center had been suffering with swelling and pain all over her body. She had had this condition for over 2 years. The pain and swelling were associated with her fibromyalgia. When Beverly first came to ARC, she told the therapist that her pain was a 10 out of 10. The pain was so bad that Beverly had trouble functioning with her daily tasks. Sometimes her pain was so bad that it was exhausting just going to the rest room and back. Beverly was unable to get a good night’s sleep, she couldn’t walk any distance and she couldn’t perform her daily chores. Beverly didn’t see any hope for relief.

Before coming to ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center, she went to a neurologist, orthopedist, and a general practitioner… they all told her it was arthritis. Beverly finally saw a specialist and he determined it was arthritis and fibromyalgia. After prescribing her with various pain killers to no avail, her specialist recommended ARC for physical therapy and acupuncture. Beverly received physical therapy, massage therapy, manual therapy, acupuncture and electrical stimulation from ARC’s therapists.

Reflecting on her treatment Beverly said, “The therapists eased into my therapy as I felt more relief. It was baby steps at first, but now I can accept more vigorous treatment”. On Beverly’s first visit to ARC, she was in so much pain the therapists could hardly touch her. Beverly went on to say, “After my third treatment, I was already getting some relief, and I started sleeping better than I have in years!”

After 8 treatments, Beverly has had almost a week of little to no pain. Beverly has resumed cleaning house and shopping, she has even gone on some outings to the beach. Beverly said that these activities were impossible before. Beverly went on to say with enthusiasm, “It’s like a miracle. I appreciated even a little relief, but when I had several days without pain, I cried happy tears rather than tears because of excruciating pain”.

Beverly felt as though the staff at ARC were “very king and genuinely cared about their patient’s well-being”. Beverly is recommending her sister, who has been suffering with fibromyalgia for 14 years, come to ARC for therapy and relief. Beverly concluded by saying, “This treatment gives me hope for a better quality of life and the ability to cope.”
