I suffer from pain around the shoulder blades in my back. This pain flares up periodically due to my job, looking down all day. When I am in lots of pain, I usually get some relief from a deep tissue massage or adjustments from my chiropractor. Around 8 months ago I had the pain in my shoulder blades much worse than usual. I couldn’t get comfortable sitting, standing or laying. I went and had a deep tissue massage and the next day I was still in the same amount of pain. Around a week later I scheduled an appointment with my chiropractor and he gave me adjustments along with the electrical pulsating massage. Still the next day I was in lots of pain. The only minor relief I had was to hold my arm over my head. I had met Dr. Brader prior but I had no knowledge in acupuncture nor did I really believe it would work but due to my pain level and nothing seemed to work, I decided to give it a shot. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Brader. He gave me acupuncture. I was surprised that it didn’t hurt. I was very impressed with how much he cared about helping me and the time he gave me. The next morning I woke up and I couldn’t believe it, no more pain!!! Since this visit the pain hasn’t came back. I can truly say that I am a believer in acupuncture. L. B.
