R. Tucker Testimonial

I first started going to Darren Holman in June of 2012 for right shoulder pain that had gotten so bad that I could not sleep on my right side any longer. Since I am a side-sleeper, it was getting harder and harder to get a good night’s sleep. In the previous year, I went to a orthopedic specialist who gave me a cortisone shot which worked for about 7-8 weeks, but literally kept me awake for the first 7 days. Needless to say, 7 days with no sleep made the decision easy to not have a steriod shot again. I followed that up with about 12 weeks of physical therapy, with very little relief from the pain. A friend recommended acupuncture and specifically recommended Darren. I was definitely skeptical but since the pain was so bad, I thought I had nothing to lose. Darren was very friendly and made me feel at ease immediately. He explained that it may take a few treatments before I felt substantial relief. I did feel some relief at the first visit for a few days, but the pain returned. I went back for two more visits and after the third visit, the pain disappeared completely. For the first time in about 5 years, I was able to sleep on my right side with absolutely no pain. I have continue to have almost no pain at all in my right shoulder. Darren made a believer in acupuncture out of me! I highly recommend Darren. You will find him very personable and very caring!
