I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive about trying acupuncture to treat my chronic lower back issue and corresponding drop foot problem, but a recent cruise opened my eyes to its benefits. On a whim and because I had the needed time on my hands, I decided to try acupuncture from a licensed doctor on the ship to see if I could gain some pain relief for my lower back and right foot so that I could tackle the land excursions. I must admit that the treatment opened my eyes to its benefits as I doubt that I would have been able to tolerate the extensive walking for each of the excursions. The treatments were painless and left me energized afterwards.
Upon my return , I elected to pursue further treatment as a means of fully curing my problem. I reserched several acupunturists who specialized in treating spinal issues. Fortunatley, I concluded that Dr. Wei Chen Yang of Yang Health Center was the appropriate choice, and I 've been extremely happy with my decision. She demostrates a full understanding of my issues with a sincere interest in improving my condition. She takes the necessary time to explain each and every treatment for me as well as prescribing the necessary exercise I need to work on to gain the appropriate strength in my right calf, ankle and foot.
Although I still have a way to go for full recovery, Dr. Yang has been very helpful in improving my condition. My foot and ankle do not swell nearly as much as they did before which has substantially improved my quality of life. I wouldn't hesitate recommending her to others who suffer lower back pain.Thank you .Dr. Yamg
