Here's what holistic medicine can do for arthritis, as experienced by my own patients...
Dr. Robert Dorris,
I just wanted to send a short letter to express my thanks for the help your have given me in reduction the pain I suffered in my left hand and my knees.
Due to many years of arthritis and constant wear of playing tennis, I had trouble going up and down the stairs in my home and often it was painful even to walk for any distance. I continued to play tennis with the help of pain killers but had to cut back on the number of times per week.
Medical doctors could only offer prescriptions to mask the pain but there was nothing else they could do.
After three acupuncture treatments I noticed a considerable lessening of the severity of the pain and going up and down stairs was much easier. With a continuation of treatments I can now play tennis for two or three hours and there is no pain. (This is with no pain killers.)
Thank you again for introducing me to acupuncture.
Both this patient and his surgeon were surprised at what holistic medicine can do for arthritis...
David A. had severe hip arthritis pain with the head of the femur deteriorating and bone spurs. It took David about 20 seconds to be able to stand up from a chair and he walked with a very pronounced limp. He had been told he needed a hip replacement.
Immediately after his first treatment he had improved range of motion and was able to reach his shoes to tie them (he could not do this previously).
At his next visit, David reported "very significant improvement in mobility and pain, about 30% improvement.
After one month of treatments with Dr Dorris at 3x's week followed by one month of treatment 2x's week, David reported a 70% improvement in mobility and little pain.
Dear Dr. Bob Dorris:
A few months ago I was diagnosed with TMJ. It is a painful and annoying situation. My primary doctor sent me to a specialist and the specialist suggested a retainer for me to wear at night.
In the meantime, since I was seeing you once a week, I mentioned it to you. You started treating my by giving me some acupuncture on that side of my face.
After a couple of treatments I started feeling better. Now the pain is gone and I can eat again. What a relief!
To be honest, I never thought acupuncture could help me with this problem.
Thank you so much for your help.
I'm a 41 year-old male with chronic low back pain for 25 years. Diagnosed as having bulging and deteriorating discs (arthritis), I had been treated with various drugs, chiropractic, and physical therapy for years with no satisfactory results.
I consulted with Dr. Dorris and received acupuncture treatments, which resulted in a 99% reduction in pain and discomfort. I continue to receive one weekly treatment and my problem has not returned. Stuart Taft
