Patient Success Story
Last November (2015) I was rear ended by another vehicle and suffered from very bad headaches, pain in my neck, shoulder, and back, and felt very mentally foggy.
I went to see a chiropractor, but it was only after getting acupuncture treatments that I started feeling much better. My headaches improved by 70%, my neck, shoulder, and back pain reduced by 50%, and my head feels a lot more clear. Because of all this, I also feel much less stressed and happier in general.
I have had a great experience at G&L Acupuncture. Have been going for several weeks now and am getting relief from my symptoms for the first time in years!
Dr. Lei Liu and the whole staff are wonderful. Very welcoming and made me feel really comfortable with the whole process since I was new to acupuncture. I love that they offer all the services you need in one place. My massage therapists have been amazing!
In 2005, I underwent major back surgery. Afterwards I tried chiropractic care, physical therapy, and massage therapy but none had any last results. I met with a surgeon who told me I was an excellent candidate for a fusion of L4 and L5 discs. I was 50 years old, in excellent physical shape (I have ran 16 marathons) and hoped the surgery would get me back on the road. After the surgery and with one year of recovery my pain level did not improve, instead it got progressively worse. I went back to physical therapy, massage therapy, attended pain clinics and considered injections.
Over the years following the second surgery my pain levels for everyday activities hovered between 6-8 out of 10. I found it difficult to do basic things such as run, bend over to pick something off the floor, put socks on, get out of bed, etc. I resigned myself to a life of constant pain especially after an MRI and my doctors saying the surgery was a "success".
In October (2012), I was given a coupon to try acupuncture. So far, I have gone 12 times and I am ecstatic about the results I have had. I have moved from a pain level of 8 to about a 2, and sometimes no pain at all. This is a miracle to me. I am back running 6-8 miles per day and I am able to do the everyday things without pain. I give G&L Acupuncture my highest recommendations.
Two years ago, I came to G&L Acupuncture because I had symptoms related to menopause including problems sleeping, constipation and hot flashes. I tried talking to my general physician about these issues, but I didn't receive much of a response.
I didn't want to take hormones, so I tried acupuncture. I am now sleeping much better, and the constipation and hot flashes are almost completely gone! Some of my friends get their nails done at the salon to feel better, but I do acupuncture!
