Best appointment ever

Posted , 5 users are following.

I accidentally found a clinic in Reno and got in to see the doctor. He and his staff were wonderful! What a difference to be treated with care. He got fibro and couldn't find help from his fellow doctors so he researched and tried different approaches. I forgot how many years it took him but he manages his pain so well he opened this clinic. He looks great, says he feels good too, can you all imagine feeling good? Anyway he tells me he looked worse than me, and what they do there is make a program for each person, because fibro effects us all differently.

People from all over the country goes to this clinic. They take care of other health issues too. They use chiropractic, acupuncture, stimulation, etc. They are medical as well as natural doctors so he told me if I need medication I have to take it but it will allows be low dose and with few side affecks.

Can't wait to start my treatment. Right now my neck is killing me but I feel so relieved. Wish I could take you all there.

      I forgot, there's a little black dog that wanders around visiting patients and a beautiful, friendly cat. Of course there's a huge aquarium. Don't all doctors have pets? Ha ha.

      Not yet, my next appt is the 23rd and they said I'd be there for an hour and half. I haven't been able to keep my head up for long so I couldn't post. I'll keep you all posted as best as I can.

      So far I've had three treatments and I can't believe that I feel better. The treatments consisted of brain exercises while on oxygen, (due to high altitude, it helps you heal faster) and wearing red tinted glasses. At the same time they put electrode pads on different parts of my legs and stimulate. Also they have me doing a cleanse, glutton free and dairy free to start. Then they will have me reintroduce different foods to see if any affect my condition. I'll tell you all about the other treatments as they happen. It seems so simple so far. I have to buy a machine for at home called a "rebuilder"). At least medicare will cover that. So, so far so good!

    Celebrating with you that's good news. I hope it's all affordable smile so nice to hear you've got options. I swear around here the physical therapists just want to work on athletes. And there's not one saltwater pool around for folks with asthmatic reactions to chlorine. Don't mean to be crabby, just wishing I could float awhile free of painful gravity and mean judgments :0 Good luck with the treatments I hope they work for you.

      They said they try to keep it affordable especially since some people travel to them from far away.

      I know crabby, my neck has been so bad I lost my humor for a couple of days. I spent 5 hours of hell in the hospital with inconsiderate health care personnel. Now that I have been treated like a real person at the fibro clinic I don't put up with these idiots. Unfortunately I needed pain pills or I wouldn't have gone in or waited 5 fricken hours. I did scream a lot.

      Hi Creola; perhaps you can let us all know what treatments/medications this doctor treats you with, for as he, himself, is a sufferer too, he will know what we all need, and what has worked best for himself and his patients.....we are all hoping for an improvement in our care..................Bron
