Acupuncture has given me relief from neck and migraine headaches better than my prescription medications. It has lasted for long periods of time and my insurance paid for the procedure. I am burned out on taking medication for these conditions. I feel they treat the symptoms not the cause. Side effects from these medications are damaging my liver and kidneys. I prefer alternative treatments if at all possible.

I have pain in the left shoulder causing me to not be able to turn my neck fully. This pain travels down my left arm. There is also a feeling of numbness and painkillers are not helping.
