Story by Pam
Chief Complaint: Leg pain and numbness in foot
"I experienced sciatica and severe leg pain in both my thigh and calf. My chiropractor was able to relieve the sciatica pain in my lower back and hip, but I continued to have severe pain down my leg and numbness in my foot. It was very debilitating and made it nearly impossible for me to walk very far. I am an avid walker, so this was especially difficult for me. Jennifer treated me with acupuncture and Tui Na. I could tell a difference almost immediately. After three treatments, over a two week period, I was back walking pain-free (and soon up to several miles a day). Jennifer is very knowledgeable and has since treated me for lung congestion from a cold, and stress, and the results were immediate. I am definitely sold on acupuncture as a natural alternative means of treatment."

Acupuncture and Chinese medical massage (TuiNa) can be very effective treatments for leg numbness and pain. I also make sure my patients have been checked by an MD if a problem needs to be ruled out or if it persists for too long. Its all about quality care and taking care of the patient. ~ Jennifer E Winer L.Ac., Dipl.Ac., MSOM
