After several doctors and 1 cortisone shot (painful) that relieved the pain for 2 weeks and expensive drugs that cost $340 per month (and didn't work) and physical therapy that also didn't work plus expensive x-rays & MRI, I hit "rock bottom." I was told surgery was not an option and there wasn't anything more that could be done for me at this time.
My Ob/Gyn recommended Bonnie Diamond, and I finally made an appointment. I was 5'3" and 220 pounds and in severe pain. I was not sure I could do this, but Bonnie put me right at ease (almost).
After my first session, I could move easier and the pain level dropped. Bonnie said the first objective was to relieve my pain and then to get me moving more, eating better, and losing weight.
I realized the needles were not painful and they worked.
Bonnie had me start trying a new recipe (of my choice) each week and report it to her. Lean meats, vegetables, more protein and less "processed" foods. (Some were "keepers" and others were a one time only deal.) She also added stretching exercises and said to try walking a little at a time.
One year later, I am at 182 pounds, moving a lot easier and not in constant pain. I hardly ever need even an aspirin. (My pain level is -1.)
Thanks so much Bonnie -- I couldn't have done it without you. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner!!!"
