An Acupuncture Surprise

I’ve been treating patients with acupuncture and Chinese herbs for a while now, so I don’t experience many surprises anymore.  Something happened recently though that I’d love to share.  I’d been seeing “Julie” (not her real name) for a few months for back pain.  Surgery had been recommended to her and she was desperate to avoid it.   She was pleasantly surprised that her back pain became almost non-existent after just a few treatments.  (I was not!)  She continues to come in regularly to help ensure the pain doesn’t come back, and is thrilled she doesn’t have to schedule back surgery!  At one of these visits, she mentioned another pain on her foot.  Surgery had been recommended for this too, and I actually thought she’d probably have to have the surgery.  But, since she was coming in for her back anyway, I said we could treat her foot at the same time.  Every time she came in, the large protrusion on her foot that I thought would have to be surgically removed, was shrinking!  She’s amazed, and quite honesty, so am I!   She no longer feels like the foot surgery is necessary and grateful she doesn’t have to take the time off for it.   I can’t wait to be surprised again!  Be well, Teresa.
