I felt the difference in my well being
This is my testimonial to the treatment given by Steve Phillips, M.A., L.Ac. Maybe I should tell you my story. I was in an auto accident in 10/2006 and I had chiropractic care for 45 months, it helped for a while and so I saw a massage therapist and that helped for a while, but there were still symptoms that were not getting better, so I went to see a M.D. who took a few tests and found that I had a cervical disc herniation at C-6/C-7. Then I was treated with injections, yoga stretches and exercises with physical rehabilitation. I tried drugs given by my doctor: anti-inflammatory, steroid, melthylprednisone, fletanyl patches, methadone, 12 arvocet. The drugs helped very little and caused me more pain with different symptoms—severe vomiting and abdominal pain. So I have to say that after all of this I was getting very depressed. The feeling of hopelessness was very strong.
That’s when I came to see Steve Phillips, M.A., L.Ac. He is my acupuncturist and so far my life saver! I am feeling very little pain and I am sleeping again, not crying during the day and night or while trying to do my job.
I have only seen him 4 times and its the best I felt since the accident. I pray that he will be able to make me better and not have to have any surgery. I guess time will tell. But if there is anyone out there in pain give acupuncture a try.
It’s not been painful to me in fact after each time, I feel so relaxed, I can think better and do just about everything I used to be able to do again.
I am so very grateful to Steve Phillips for his healing work to my disabling pain. Not only was my body in a great deal of pain, but my mental state was being affected, and after the 2nd treatment I felt the difference in my well being. I have hope for my future again. I hope my story can help you find hope again too.
