NECK, SHOULDER & COLLAR BONE PAIN
In February of 2001 I had Polymyalgia Rheumatica which was very‑crippling and painful. The only thing that helped me was taking a large amount of Prednisone which unfortunately has many side effects. Eventually, the severe pain lessened and I was able to take a smaller amount of Prednisone. I was, however, left with residual pain in my neck, shoulder and collar bone. I suffered with this for many years even being unable to turn my neck very far from side to side. I tried many times to completely quit taking Prednisone, but each time I did the pain would get worse.
I became very discouraged because any time I tried to do even minor work or anything that required me to be on my feet for any length of time, I would have more pain. Pain seemed to rule my life affecting so many aspects of it such as being unable to take a trip to visit with family or having to watch others do things around the house and yard that I used to be able to do.
I heard about acupuncture through an acquaintance of my wife. That person spoke very highly of David Milbradt and how much he had helped her. I went to the acupressure workshop in this past December, learned more and signed up for a free consultation.
I started treatments in December and after the first three treatments felt pain free for the first time in many years. I can turn my head from side to side now without pain and with continued treatment I am for the most part without pain. I plan on continuing having treatments until I am cured. Recently I had some knee and leg pain and David treated that, too. I am amazed at how good I feel every time I have a treatment. At this time, I have cut down the amount of Prednisone I'm taking and soon will be completely off of it.
Coming to the clinic is a very uplifting experience. David, Margo, Sheri and Joel are very caring. Everyone is as happy and excited as I am when I tell them how great I feel. I am starting to feel more optimistic and enjoying life more. I have and will continue to recommend Abundance Acupuncture to others.
