Wayne Free had been suffering from neck pain for more than five years as the result of a motorcycle accident. At age 44, Wayne was in too much pain to ride a motorcycle, wasn't sleeping well, and found that driving for work was extremely uncomfortable. He sought treatment with an orthopedist, chiropractor, and traditional physical therapy in the hopes of getting relief. He tried pain medications and epidural shots, all of which supplied only temporary relief.
At a visit with his rheumatologist, it was recommended that he come to ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center for treatment. Willing to try anything, Wayne agreed to receive acupuncture and cupping treatments, along with massage and physical therapy. Upon visiting ARC, Wayne felt as though the staff was very helpful, polite and knowledgeable, but most of all encouraging. After a couple of treatments, Wayne was sore, but with the encouragement from ARC's staff and the recommendation from his physician, he persevered.
Wayne's pain is now down from a level 9 out of 10 to a 1, even a 0, out of 10. His range of motion has improved. Wayne is now able to turn his head left and right, making driving for work more comfortable and getting a good night's sleep more common. He even started riding his motorcycle again. He recommends ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center to his coworkers who have back pain.
