I suffered back pain that was becoming progressively worse. It started 13 years ago. At work I bent over to look at a computer screen and my back gave out. I could only get around on crutches and was confined to my bed rest of the time. I went to my doctor and he prescribed cortisone injections in my lower back. I decided to try Chinese medicine before injections and went to Hopewell Medical Acupuncture Center where Dr. long and her team treated me for three days in a row with a special kind of meridian massage therapy acupuncture and herbs. the day after my first treatment the Paine was worse. The second day I woke up in the morning and could not believe how good my back felt. After the third day of treatments my back pain was completely gone. Thank you Dr. Long and your team.
