am a 44 year old retailer for lawn ornaments and outdoor flags.
Six years ago I was injured while was selling and lifting wrought
iron shepherd crooks. I had to lift them over my head and onto
my car. I developed bilateral tennis elbow. I couldn't lift any
heavy thing any more which could influence my living. I was treated
with ultrasound and hot packs at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation
Home for five visits. There was no improvement with that treatment
plus a patch with multiple pain medications. After a cycle of
acupuncture 10 treatments with ingesting herbs, my pain has down
to a minimum and I could lift my arm to work as normal now."
"I am a 48 years female, suffered from the multiple pain
as the subject about three years ago. Those injuries caused by
using heavy wheelbarrows of mulch. I have been treated by Doctors
under different medication, however, the Naprosyn can cause me
nausea and Daypro can make me bruising. I also took the Vioxx
for six months and it has not been helpful. I also see a massage
therapist, a myotherapist and chiropractor for musculoskeletal
problems with little or no help.
thru the Dr. Conrad Weiser recommended me to try of acupuncture,
I have been seen Dr. Tao, initially to have a three times a week
then reduced to once a week, I have no longer migrates my low
back pain to my lower leg and elbow pain with the shoulder pain
relieved as well."
developed tendonitis in my right elbow
in the summer of 1998, I first sought relief at a chiropractor
for a month in using heat and electrical stimulation, it's not
working. Then he referred me to my family doctor who gave me a
shot of cortisone and elbow brace which gave me temporary relief,
however, in about a week the pain was back. Then my primary physician
gave me another cortisone shot with the same effect-a week later
the pain returned. After 4 acupuncture treatments, my elbow has
improved 90% with only a tweak of pain now and then. Dr. Tao has
opened my mind to where I now."
