Annie Price, an independent, 84-years-young woman, had been suffering from lower back pain for over 30 years. She had also developed severe neck pain and stiffness as the years went on. Along with her severe back pain, Annie was unable to move her neck to the left at all. She was afraid to drive, wasn't sleeping well and was unable to perform some housecleaning tasks. Annie had spinal injections and also saw a chiropractor, but both treatments gave Annie only temporary relief.
Annie's daughter told her about the success stories she had heard about acupuncture. Annie asked her primary care physician, who recommended ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center. After Annie's first visit, she was sure she had come to the right place. She thought the staff and therapists were very knowledgeable, and she was impressed with their willingness to take time to talk to her, answer all her questions and address her concerns.
While at ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center, Annie received acupuncture, acupuncture with stimulation, physical therapy and massage therapy. After a month and a half of therapy, Annie was able to finally move her neck to left without pain. She is now able to drive more comfortably, can do more housework, and is sleeping better. When she came to ARC, her pain was at a level 9 out of 10. It is now down to a 2 out of 10.
Annie is so excited to finally have her pain under control, without medication, and with a restored faith in the healing powers of acupuncture. Annie tells all her friends her success story, and encourages them to come to ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center.
