  • Periodic pain – migraines, cluster headaches, old injuries that act up with the weather or with use
  • Menstrual pain

Case Study

Before working together, my patient was having debilitating low back and sciatic pain. She could barely walk, her pain was consistently at a 7/10 (10 being the worst), and it was aggravated by sitting, standing, even lying down – pretty much everything! She had been given cortisone injections which did nothing. She was scheduled for back surgery when she discovered she was pregnant! Her neurosurgeon said that surgery was not an option until at least after the 2nd trimester. Desperate for relief, she called me.

After working together for 2 weeks, her pain was down by over 60%. That same week, she saw her neurosurgeon, who checked her foot and leg strength, said it was good, and said that if it kept progressing like this, she wouldn’t have to have surgery!

One week later, she had no pain at all. She was back to her former activities like walking in her neighborhood, and even taking dance classes. She returned one month before her due date to do weekly pre-birth acupuncture treatments to prepare her body for labor. She delivered a healthy son 2 days after her due date, and remained pain free.
