"I am an eighty year-old male and I have stenosis in the lumbar area of my spine. I was operated on about eight years ago to correct the painful situation. The operation was a partial success. I was given pain medication to alleviate the daily pain in my back. I tried treatment from a chiropractor, with no relief. I tried all types of back exercises, including working out in a swimming pool, with no relief.
A friend of mine had a painful knee and was treated by Dr. Tao, with excellent results. She referred me to him for treatment. At the beginning, I was very skeptical of acupuncture, but after a few treatments by Dr. Tao, my back pain started to be relieved. After approximately 18 treatments, my back pain has nine-five percent disappeared. I used to awake in the middle of the night to take a pain pill. Now, I sleep through the whole night without pain. I recommend acupuncture to anyone who has any pain problems or any other medical problems.
Thank you, Dr. Tao"
"I was troubled with low back pain/spinal stenosis, but my surgeon
would not operate, feeling it would be too traumatic at my age
(95). So I tried acupuncture and am very pleased with the results-pain
is at least 80% gone. I would try acupuncture again, if necessary."
am a 58 year old male, who was very active for my age until about
7 years ago when I started with low back pain. I had done the
gamut of orthopedic doctors, and physical therapy treatments which
helped but only for a brief time. In July 2006 I was diagnosed
with ¡°severe spinal stenosis.¡± A condition that only gets progressively
worse until surgery is generally the only remedy. I also had re-developed
bronchitis in my right shoulder (a condition I had treated with
physical therapy about 5 years ago). Not knowing where to turn
(I certainly did not want surgery), but I did want to get some
relief from the pain, so I started looking on the internet and
came upon Tao¡¯s Acupuncture & Herb Center.¡± After doing some
research, I decided that I was going to give acupuncture a try.
my first treatment with Dr. Tao, I noticed a tremendous relief
from the pain I had been suffering with for all these years, not
only in my lower back, but also in my shoulder. I would recommend
acupuncture to any one who is thinking of an alternative medicine
Tao is a very caring, compassionate and patient individual. I
do not know where I would be today if it were not for Dr. Tao
and his TCM and herb therapy. It works! Thank You Dr. Tao."
am a 40 year old female, worked as a secretary for a disability
management company. I had a history of herniated disc, MRI shows
my right side has disc herination at L5-S1 with moderate stenosis
and degenerative arthritis. I took codeine and cortisone transiently
since 1998, but discontinued it because I did not want to take
systemic medications. In January, 2004 I was jogging on a new
treadmill and developed lumbosacral pain again. My pain feels
worse when I changed positions, or bending to sit down. I received
four week of rehabilitation and chiropractic care with no relief.
I took generic drug Relafen twice a day with only slight relief.
However, after the first acupuncture treatment with herbal patch
and herbal medicine from Dr. Tao, I had dramatic relief in the
next day. I can not believe this is true and highly recommend
to anyone who has the pain problem."
am a 72 years old man and my low back pain was excruciating for
over 15 years, I suffered with degenerative arthritis and spinal
stenosis. It is because of it that I had to give up golfing. Exercise
and pain meds didn't help. I was resigned to the fact that I was
to live in pain for the rest of my life. In June of 2004, I visited
Dr. Tao for acupuncture and herbs treatment. Following treatment,
I was relieved of pain, and I am contemplating hitting the links
