I have been struggling with pain since I ruptured my right shoulder a year and a half ago. I can’t have surgery because I have celiac disease and it would take 6 months to heal and of course the doctor will not guarantee that the surgery will fix the problem. I have had 2 cortisone shots that have only relieved the pain for about 2 weeks each time. I refuse to have any more shots. I don’t want that stuff floating around in my body. That said, I decided to give Acupuncture a try. I am seeing Dr. Robin Roarke who has a clinic on Dearborn St in Englewood. I can’t tell you how much this has helped me. I have had 4 visits so far and it is the first time in a year that I have no pain. She also has been giving me whole body treatments to improve my circulation . This has been a godsend to me. My digestive health has improve and I am eating and sleeping so well. I used to have horrible stomach pain on a daily basis, now I am pain free. I have more energy than I have had in years.
Dr. Robin also is a board certified Herbalist and my husband and I are going to try using herbal capsules instead of Statins for our high cholesterol .
