Neck pain that was affecting my life to the point I could not move without major pain
Hello my name is Jeffrey Shaffer and I’m 47 Years old and this is my story. About 2 years ago I began seeking medical help for my neck pain that was affecting my life to the point I could not move without major pain. It turned out after a year of tests and several doctors, major doses of Methadone, Vicodan and Motrin 800 mg after being on this treatment for another 8 months, my orthopedic doctor recommended an alternate treatment. I was referred to Steve Phillips and began treatment on January 2, 2008 and for the next 6 weeks I was given Acupuncture treatments once a week. After 4 weeks I was able to decrease my pain medication regiment by half and then by the end of 6 weeks I was off the Methadone completely and only take an occasional Motrin. I am currently taking my Acupuncture treatments once every 4 to 5 weeks and am actually doing so much better. I thank Steve after every treatment and would recommend him to anyone. He has been great with communicating and has made me feel like a person and not just another number. I can’t praise the treatment or the man enough. After being a pain medication addict for 18 months of my life, I can honestly say that I feel Human and functional again. Thanks Steve for all you do.
