William Gerlach, a fun loving 63-year old, was unable to walk, move or sleep for nearly three years due to back pain. William was experiencing back spasms up and down his spine. He received six epidural shots and nine facet shots in his back over a three-year period, all of which gave him only temporary relief. Both his primary care doctor and his rheumatologist recommended acupuncture treatments.
Once William's rheumatologist recommended ARC for his acupuncture and physical therapy, he was very hopeful. After only the second treatment, he discontinued using all of his anti-inflammatory and pain medications. William received acupuncture and cupping treatments, as well as physical therapy and massage therapy from ARC.
able to ride again. . .
William is ecstatic that he can lift his leg high enough to get on his motorcycle and go on rides for the first time in a long time. He went for a swim for the first time in three years, and is able to keep up with his wife on walks.
William said that the staff at ARC is very knowledgeable, informative and friendly. He enjoyed the seminar that ARC Physical Therapy and Pain Center conducted, and reports that his wife will also seek treatment for leg pain.
