What patients are saying…

A car accident left me with severe lower back pain and headaches.  After seeking other treatment options and shying away from pain medications and injections, I turned to acupuncture.  Like most people I was leary of the “needles” and nervous to start.  Dominic, was very informative and calming.  After just two weeks of treatment I noticed a remarkable improvement in my pain levels and frequency of pain.  As the treatment progressed, it became obvious it was alleviating my symptoms.  I felt energized, happier and practically pain free!  I have recommended Health Source Acupuncture to everyone who is suffering from pain and wants to avoid medications and its side effects. Dominic and the entire staff were the greatest team of health professionals I have encountered.

I have been dealing with terrible low back pain and working on my feet all day was so difficult, until I met Dominic!  After I started treating with acupuncture I was sleeping better and thinking less and less about my pain and now I can go through work with taking any pain medicine!  Dominic was so easy to talk to and has great bedside manners and really tries to get to the problem.  I would definitely recommend acupuncture treatment as I know it helped me tremendously.

I am a 40 year old female that was seeking acupuncture because I was having constant mid and low back pain.  I really enjoyed the people in the office; they are very nice and friendly.  The acupuncture treatment rooms are so comfortable and relaxing and have nice music playing in the background.  Within one month I felt 90% better!  This treatment has improved my life and how I go on with my day to day activities.  NO MORE CONSTANT PAIN ALL DAY…Thank you!!!

I was recommended to try acupuncture by my Chiropractor.  My health insurance covered my acupuncture treatments which was also a plus.  I have structural issues with the curvature of my spine and my mid back is always tight and in spasm.  I can’t quite pinpoint how it works but IT DOES!  Not only did it help me with my pain levels and muscle tightness it helped me relax and alleviated a lot of stress at the same time.  During the treatments for some reason I was able to achieve a level of rest that I otherwise never get at home.  I feel that adding acupuncture along with my chiropractic care really worked very well together.  Even if I didn’t have health insurance coverage, to me it would have been well worth the investment of time and money.  I would recommend acupuncture for anyone who is looking to feel better!

I have been suffering with migraine headaches for over fifteen years which is more than the majority of my life.  Medications help slightly when I get them but they don’t prevent them from happening.  When I get my headaches I often have to call out of work and lay down and sleep all day, it is terrible.  On average I get them at least 2 times a month each and every month.  After starting acupuncture, I didn’t get my first migraine for 6 weeks.  I was amazed.  It was the longest I have gone without a headache in 15 years.  Since then I have only had one headache in three months.  I know acupuncture is working for me and I look forward to continuing my treatments.  This is the best thing I have tried and I am so happy with the results so far!

My name is Patricia.  I am a 49 year old woman who had been suffering from Fibromyalgia for 10 years before I started receiving acupuncture.  What a difference when I did!  My conditions improved in terms of my ability to move, my energy levels, I am not tired and my overall health condition has improved.  I’m not the same person, my life has changed forever…NO PAIN!!!  This was my last resort for treating health issues due to fibromyalgia.  My doctor could not believe that I no longer have tender points.

I had microdiscectomy surgery on my low back to help repair damage to my lumbar spine. Although the surgery did help, I still have low back pain that occasionally goes down my right leg.  I am not a surgical candidate right now nor do I want to have another one so I decided to try acupuncture to help reduce some of my pain symptoms.  It has made a positive improvement for me.  The acupuncture seems to reduce the frequency and severity of my low back and leg pain.  While the pain is not 100% gone, I am now able to do my regular activities and live my life with much less pain.  I only occasionally get pain down my leg and when I do it is much less than before.  I have made acupuncture treatment a part of my life to help keep me stay off the surgery table.  I am happy with the results and have recommended my wife to get acupuncture too.

I was having problems with my shoulder and did not want to continue the cortisone shots the orthopedic doctor had given me. Despite the shots I was still in a great deal of pain which kept me up at night and interfered with my active lifestyle, especially my golf game.  A friend suggested trying Acupuncture and my shoulder has become as good as new.

I really look forward to going for Acupuncture treatments. I find the office so friendly and the treatments are my most relaxing time of the day.

I have recommended acupuncture to many friends. If you have never tried it, you really should, it has made a world of difference in my life.

Acupuncture has been very successful for me!  The needles have been placed in many different locations and have helped me significantly reduce the pain I was having in my right shoulder that accompanied the surgery I had to repair my rotator cuff.  Along with physical therapy, acupuncture has been working great.  I was amazed at how the acupuncture softened the visible scars I had and now, they are as soft as the skin around them!

I know that many people are hesitant to try acupuncture because of the needles, but I must say the needles are so thin that you barely feel anything at all.  I don’t fully understand how it works but it worked well for me.  I recommend it for anyone.  It is worth trying to see if it will work for you like it has worked for me.

I was seeking pain relief from severe shoulder, arm, and neck pain after an automobile accident.  I had tried many other therapies like chiropractic care and physical therapy.  While these modalities helped me, I was still in pain.  I was then recommended to try acupuncture to help me further.  I must be honest, I was quite skeptical about how acupuncture could help me but I was willing to try anything so I would feel better.  Let me tell you, I was shocked by the results.  My overall experience with acupuncture was excellent.  The pain relief was dramatic and quite significant.  My pain level dropped over 80% and my range of motion improved significantly.  The treatments were quite painless and very relaxing.  I fell asleep on most visits! If you are in pain, I would absolutely recommend trying acupuncture.  It has helped me become almost pain free so I could get my life back to where it was before my car accident.

I have been dealing with neck pain and stiffness for almost one year.  I was diagnosed with two bulging discs in my neck.  It prevents me from doing normal activities like looking up, working, and lifting heavy objects.  I was referred to try acupuncture by my doctor and was open to the suggestion; I was just hoping that anything would help me at that point. My initial examination was very professional and thorough.  After starting the acupuncture treatments I started to notice changes in my pain and stiffness levels.  As the treatments continued I noticed significant and lasting pain relief.  I was able to start working again and my neck pain and stiffness now is 95% improved. I am so glad my doctor recommended acupuncture because it has helped me so much.  Acupuncture has been around for a very long time and people should be open-minded and try it out.

Before acupuncture I couldn’t play basketball if I wanted to everyday due to my low back pain.  As I progressed through the treatments, the pain gradually decreased. Now, at the end of my treatments, I virtually have NO MORE PAIN before or after physical activity.  I now play basketball 3 to 4 times a week and lift weights on the other days.  I am so glad I don’t have to deal with the pain any longer.  I would definitely recommend acupuncture for anyone that is dealing with pain. It made a huge difference in my life!

After my car accident I was diagnosed with bulging discs at C5 and C6.  I was having terrible neck pain and muscle spasms in my upper back.  I tried Physical Therapy and it was just too painful to continue.  My pain level was still high and I wasn’t sure what to do next.  I was recommended to try acupuncture to see how it would help.  I had heard good things about acupuncture but never tried it.  I am a little scared of needles but I was tired of dealing with the pain in my neck and upper back.  So I met with my acupuncturist and am I glad that I did.  Not only were the needles painless, it was so relaxing!  I have a stressful job so I was so happy that it helped reduce my stress.  Not only that, but acupuncture has made me virtually pain free. I sit at a computer all day and it was very painful to do that after the accident.  I can now work all day and at the end of the day I feel great. I tell all my friends and family about it and I would recommend it to anyone.

After my car accident I was in a lot pain in my low back and spine area.  After many months of minimal relief it was recommended to me to try acupuncture.  I was a little nervous at first because I don’t like needles but I was pleasantly surprised after the first treatment that the needles didn’t even hurt. Not only that but after my first acupuncture treatment, I noticed a decrease in pain.  I was shocked!  My pain today is almost completely gone and I have just gone back to work again.  I would recommend acupuncture to anyone that has pain, it has helped me and I know it can help others too.
