Low Back Pain – Positive results from acupuncture

Early 2012 I herniated a disc. I have no idea how I did this. I met with two neurosurgeons and was told surgery was an option, but there was no guarantee that the issue would not return. My pain was pretty bad and I was very uncomfortable. I decided I would try acupuncture as I had gone before (different practitioner). I arrived at Alison’s office after doing a Google search to find someone close to my home. Alison is truly gifted in what she does as well as passionate about her work. She takes the time to learn about you as a whole person, not just focusing on the symptom at hand. At the time, I was also having challenges with my diet. She helped turn the light on for me to see the importance of proper nutrition and the role that it plays in good health. “You have to want it” are words she spoke at the start of one session that have stuck with me. I met with Alison on a regular basis for many months. I continued to attend as I saw the positive results from acupuncture. Fast forward a year and I am free of any herniated disc pain. Later last year I was faced with a cancer diagnosis which would lead me to having surgery to remove my entire thyroid. My neck was very tight and stiff after the surgery and I was carrying stress in my shoulders. Alison was there to help alleviate that pain after my surgery and was pivotal in the progression of my recovery. Alison is a true professional in the work that she does, is nonjudgmental, and empathetic to the needs of her patients. I highly recommend her for your journey to better health.
