Summary

Where to start? I've had back pain for 8 years.The kind of pain that is debilitating. I've been on and off of disability and have had 3 epidurals. I've woken up so bad I've gone to Urgent care where they gave me anti inflammatory shots. NYE 2018 I was taken by ambulance to the emergency room because I literally could not move. I've had to quit jobs because the pain was so bad. I've lived on pain pills and muscle relaxers. I've seen Spine Specialists, neurologists even a neurosurgeon. They all look at my MRI and tell me there's nothing wrong. The neurosurgeon suggested acupuncture. I turned to Yelp and chose Sinsa because of the great reviews. I've been going once a week for 10 weeks. I know this sounds over the top, but it's changed my life. I'm 90% better. I was able to go back to work and the job I went back to was really physical. I did a 6 day week and walked 34 miles (I have an apple watch so I tracked it). Before that I couldn't do 1/4 mile. Thank you to everyone at Sinsa. You've truly changed my life.
