I was nauseated and it had been going on for 6 weeks. It was debilitating to the point where all I did was lie in the fetal position and I didn't eat or drink anything for days at a time because I feared being more nauseated and vomiting. I went to my doctor and a gastroenterologist specialist and both gave me very inconclusive answers and told me to take a handful of pills, none of which helped.
After only 2 acupuncture treatments the nausea was gone and by the end of the 5th treatment I was back to myself 100%. No nausea, no fatigue, and I was able to keep food and water down. I looked forwarded to each and every appointment. Modern medicine told me to deal with the discomfort and take medication, but G&L Acupuncture and Wellness Center was able to treat the nausea and make it stay away.
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.
I have stenosis in cervical and lumbar and after spine surgery I was still in pain. I found this place and walked in and wanted to give it a try. I am so glad I did. Staff is wonderful and so knowledgeable and they really explained all about accupunture. I started to feel better soon after my 1st treatment. I am now able to work and function my life much easier.
I have cut back on medication and finally feel hopeful. I really recommend this place to give it a try. You won't be sorry. I have recommended this clinic to many friends, family and coworkers.
