Brenda Strickland, a fun-loving 60-year-old female, had been suffering from severe pain in her lower back caused from a curvature in her spine that she had since her late teen years. Brenda was in extreme pain. Her leg would become numb and she would often limp when walking. It was uncomfortable for Brenda to move about, which prevented her from being able to shop, and limited her housework capabilities. Sitting for any extended period e was also painful.
Brenda had three cortisone shots that did not alleviate the pain, and had several experiences with traditional physical therapy that only gave her temporary relief. She had resigned herself to live with the discomfort, until her rheumatologist recommended ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center. After her first treatment, Brenda was amazed. She had never had acupuncture before and she was a little skeptical. The only thing that made her somewhat sore her first treatment was the physical therapy.
Along with acupuncture and physical therapy, Brenda also received massage therapy and acupuncture with stimulation. When she first started therapy, she was experiencing pain at a level 9 out of 10. Her pain level is now down to a 2 out of 10. She believes her results are so dramatic because the focus of this treatment is to correct the source of the pain. Brenda is just ecstatic that she can shop for hours, and is now back to doing volunteer work. Brenda is truly encouraged by the results. Because the staff is so knowledgeable, friendly and respectful, she is comfortable recommending ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center to her friends.
