~I was scheduled for lower back surgery in December for a pinched nerve. To alleviate the excruciating pain which started in my hip and ran down my leg, I was taking one Aleve at night and two Aleve first thing in the morning before getting out of bed. I then sat on the couch for 30 minutes before starting my day to calm the nerve else I would experience the pain.
Not warming to the idea of surgery I opted to try acupuncture and was referred to Tabor View. Best decision I ever made!! My first session with Kelly Shaw had him manipulating/massaging my back as well as acupuncture. He indicated it appeared to him to be a soft tissue issue surrounding my nerve. Several spots he touched were very sensitive (it was like having the dentist hit a nerve!). On my second session, Kelly did the same thing but the pain was much less, almost like touching a bruise. At the end of the second session Kelly showed me some stretching exercises to do in the morning and suggested I try eliminating the morning Aleves. Whatever he did worked!! I was able to start my daily walks and some exercise! I cancelled my surgery and no longer need Aleve to get through the day. I had two more sessions with Kelly and am feeling great. He truly saved me. Thank you again Kelly for ‘fixing’ me!!!
Every session from Kelly Shaw has been extremely beneficial. He incorporates his knowledge with great listening skills and an obvious love for medicine. He sense of humor is refreshing! I also appreciate the occasional ”history lesson” about Chinese medicine. I have come away from every session feeling understood and well cared about – Thanks!
