When I was 24 years old and hurt my back lifting weights. I’ll never forget the day, just like any other day in the gym, except it wasn’t. The 3 loud pops my back made while deadlifting will forever be ingrained in my brain. The sharp, stabbing, burning pain. My life was changed.
I literally couldn’t go a day without 10 out of 10 pain for over a year. I tried everything just short of surgery. Then I found acupuncture. Six months of treatments and I was able to function like a normal 25 year old. I was able to walk without excruciating pain. I was able to enjoy a concert with my girlfriend (now wife) without being absolutely miserable.
My experience was literally life changing and inspired me to dedicate my life to learning how to help people just like I was helped. I’m lucky enough that I’ve been able to do this for hundreds of patients each year. In 2018 alone, I was able to perform over 3000 acupuncture treatments.
Acupuncture isn’t some magic bullet or hocus pocus, it’s the world’s oldest and most practiced systematic medical system. It’s a system that uses sophisticated diagnostics to discover patterns of dysfunction and develop customized plans to restore function to those systems. With it, we are able to help patients who otherwise would struggle with conventional medical care.
