RHEUMATOID AND OSTEOARTHRITIS
My name is Darlene C. I came to Abundance Acupuncture in March 2007 because I was suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis. I had this problem for 24 years. This problem encompassed my whole body starting with my upper and lower extremities, wrists, and knees. Because made it difficult for me to walk, go up and down stairs, and do normal household activities such as wringing out a mop, sweeping, etc., it left me feeling fatigued, irritable, and hopeless.
I tried medications such as Plaquenil and Trental and even arthroscopic surgery but, no loose or crumbled ligaments were found. I began to feel some improvements in my condition after one treatment at Abundance Acupuncture. At this point in time my condition feels 75 to 100% better and I am able to do all of my housework with very little discomfort if any at all. I am able to take part in all family activities except strenuous exercise or sports. I have also had significant improvement in other symptoms like decreased emotional problems with depression, anxiety, and irritability. I have even lost 7 pounds!
The clinic is very pleasant and warm and the staff is warm and caring. They make you feel like they’re family and they helped me learn a great deal about how good posture affects the way you feel and how important proper nutrition is. This will be the first place I turn to if I have more discomfort from my arthritis. I would recommend acupuncture to anyone because I truly believe it did me a world of good!!
