Since I am the son of a doctor and was raised in a “conventional medicine only” household it may have taken me a little longer than most to consider acupuncture. I am very glad I did because it works, especially for me. My wife spent 3 years in pain management working through a myriad of pain reducing drugs after having a lumbar fusion. Having developed my own disc related back problem I searched for solutions beyond epidural steroid injections or pain management drugs. Acupuncture has been a godsend and allows me to function at about 80% without drugs or surgery. Give acupuncture a try. It can’t hurt and does help. Patricia Hallam is very patient and will work with you to alleviate your particular symptoms.
