My doctor ordered Xrays and then an MRI scan, all being inconclusive, and I submitted to muscle relaxers and pain killers which made me stupid, inattentive, and unable to function. After two weeks of suffering an appointment was made with an orthopedic doctor/surgeon and I was warned of possible surgery or cortisone injections.
I cancelled the appointment and decided to try acupuncture with Gina Butler as recommended by a friend. This changed my life. I was very concerned that I was going to take chronic pain into my up-coming retirement and that was what life now held in store for me. However, after one treatment by the very warm and enthusiastic Gina Butler, not only did I leave pain-free, I felt years younger all over. It seemed I was given my life back.
Treatment was twice a week for two weeks and then two more treatments about a month or so apart. This has permanently eliminated the pain I experienced and seemingly given me an overall tuneup that has been very much appreciated. Thank you so much, Gina.
