RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy)

"After many years of TMJ pain, I was diagnosed with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) IN 2001. The many medications and steroid injections I was given while relieving pain seriously incapacitated me and did not cure my condition of constant pain, fatigue, depression and insomnia, and muscle spasms.

During the summer of 2002, I moved to the Lehigh Valley area and sought the help of Chung-Hu Tao, an acupuncturist and herbalist.
I found what he treated relieved many of my symptoms and enabled me to do activities I had not done in years. Although RSD and TMJ
problems are something I will always have to live with, acupuncture has enabled me to resume a more normal life with many less medications (that have their own side effects) and much less pain.

I t is clear to me that Dr. Tao's patient, caring, and informed approach is an excellent adjunct to the usual Western way of medicine. I believe it is a healthier way to deal with certain intractable medical problems and recommend to those with chronic problems to give a try."
~Cynthia Anderson

am a 44 year old female afflicted with RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) for the past 4 years. I was diagnosed by an orthopedic surgeon, who ordered me to try nerve blocks and for the next couple of months received 20 nerve blocks which helped me less and less. Not succeeding there I was sent to Jefferson Pain Clinic in Philadelphia for an implant (spinal) and was told my disease had progressed too far. Over the past 4 years I have seen to Allentown Pain Clinic, Hershey Pain Clinic, John Heinz Institute and Kinston Pain Clinic along with physical therapy and was treated with morphine and methadone to little or no avail. After nothing worked I was sent to a neurologist who referred me to see Dr. Tao for acupuncture treatments. For the past 2 months I was unable to drive but after one treatment, I was driving again, my appetite had improved and my outlook on life had completely changed. I once again sleep at night something I hadn't experienced for the past 4 years. The results have been miraculous. After hearing from doctors that there was nothing else they could do, and even though I know the disease is incurable I would advise any one else with similar ailments to try acupuncture and Chinese herbs."
