Success: Hip Pain from Bursitis
*My name is Lynn. I had bursitis in both hips for several months after doing a lot of walking on a vacation. Ouch! It hurt to sit, stand, walk, lie in bed at night – all the things I took for granted. Aleve didn’t provide me much relief and I didn’t want a steroid injection, as I don’t like needles!
I was fortunate enough to meet Dawn on a recent visit to Florida and decided to give acupuncture a try – me, the woman who is afraid of needles. I met with Dawn on April 2, 2010. She took a lot of time taking my history and explaining what she was going to do, and really put me at ease. Her manner is very calming and office setting is super comfortable and serene. I was a little anxious about the acupuncture, but had no discomfort from it at all, and it sure felt better than having the hip pain all the time.
I noticed a gradual improvement in my bursitis after the first and second sessions, and by the third and fourth treatments, my discomfort declined remarkably. In addition to acupuncture, Dawn did massage, gave me an herbal medicine to take in place of Aleve and medicated plasters to apply to the hip area, all of which contributed to an improvement in my pain. I was able to walk, exercise, and go shopping again!
I’m back in Wisconsin now and continue to improve. I’m grateful to have met Dawn, glad I decided to give acupuncture a try, and would encourage anyone to give it a chance.
