Abdulla H.'s Success Story
Dr. Lei Liu and his entire staff at G&L Acupuncture in West Linn are an amazing people, extremely friendly and flexible to work with.
I have had back problems in the past and this went on for several years, I went to several doctors and chiropractics, no improvement, I was refered to him by someone who received treatment and I thought "What!"... needles! I don't think so!
I said what do I have to lose after all these years of pain, I decide to take her advice and see Dr. Lei. That was the best decision I have ever made, now everytime I have back issue or neck or even shoulder problem, I call their office and they get me in right away.
Now I have my wife and my children see Dr. Lei or any one of his staff Deniel or Sarah, or any one there will great job!!!
Efficient scheduling, on time appointments, thorough and kind care. Thank you Joy!
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 could go on and on about how knowledgeable, professional, kind and empathetic Lei Liu at G&L Acupuncture is. All of that is so true! But what ultimately matters to me is results! Lei has virtually eliminated a headache I’ve had for many, many months stemming from chronic pain. I will definitely stay the course with Lei’s help and am confident I will continue to improve as time goes on. Thank you so much Lei!!!
