Last year I had a pain in my knee that would not go away. I went to my medical Dr. and went through all the x-rays and things Drs. put you through to find out what is wrong with you. At the same time, I was being treated by Donna to ease the pain. My knee was somewhat swollen and after several sessions with acupuncture treatment my knee didn’t hurt as much and the inflammation subsided. The pain didn’t go completely away so I continued with the treatment. My Dr. told me I had torn meniscus and he needed to operate in order for the pain to go completely away. I followed his advice and continued my treatments with Donna. The inflammation went away faster and the pain from the surgery was insignificant. The pain medication wasn’t necessary because it was bearable after the acupuncture treatments. I believe the acupuncture treatment helped me recover much faster because of the blood flow through my knees, which I believe is what acupuncture does. Not only is Donna a good acupuncturist, she’s also very professional and has great bedside manners. I highly recommend her.
