Testimonials from PatientsBack Pain
"Several years ago, while I was mowing my lawn, I was run over by a drunk driver
breaking several bones in my back. I had been in chiropractic treatment even before the
accident and still visit once or twice a week. But, as time goes by and with age, the pain
is not subsiding. I do not like to take medication. So I found Susan, and after my first
treatment, I was able to move freely and, for the first time in a long time, was able to
sleep restfully. I visit susan weekly. She has treated me for a depression, aches and
pains, and helping with weight loss. I can not tell you what a great experience
"I started seeing Susan Kane in June 2010. I had been diagnosed with arthritis in my
knee earlier this year, and very recently found out that I have an autoimmune disease. I
came to Susan with bilateral knee pain, tingling in my lower legs and arms, random pain
in my hands and forearms, and I was an emotional wreck worrying about all my health
After my third treatment I started to feel about 80% better. By my fifth treatment I realized I hadn't even thought of my pains and tingling for several days. I will now be going on a maintenance program of every three to four weeks after just seven treatments.
I can't say enough about what acupuncture has done for me. I am no longer taking ibuprofen daily for my knee pain nor have I started taking any medication for my autoimmune disease. Acupuncture has helped me get back to a pain-free life and I no longer worry about my health issues. I can't thank Susan enough for her help."
"I had a lot of pain and was in bed a lot with arthritis, bursitis, sciatica and tendonitis. I had three shots of cortisone and physical therapy and still had pain. My doctor advised me to have acupuncture and to make an appointment with Susan Kane, L.Ac. I had three treatments in two weeks and then some of the pain started easing up. Each week it got better. I had seven treatments and the terrible pain was gone. I'm thankful for my doctor insisting that I go to Susan to treat me."
"I have found acupuncture to be an effective form of treatment for various physical ailments. Susan is a gentle, caring and sensitive professional who provides treatment that brings me relief from sinusitis, chronic muscle pain and weakness, and gastrointestinal difficulties without the need to add medication to my system. Treatment is provided in a calm, quiet and comfortable environment. I find her office hours to be flexible which enables me to be seen on a regular basis even when I am pressed for time."
"I want to thank you for helping me get through my autoimmune problems. I am convinced your treatments contributed greatly to getting my skin condition under control. I feel so much better. Also, I want to thank you for all you have done for my wife over the past six years. She is doing great and you deserve all the credit for her good health!"
Acupuncture is a great alternative for maintaining well-being. I find that it boosts my immune system, soothes my nerves, calms my digestive tract and eases pain. Susan Kane is very knowledgeable, competent and caring. Thank you, Susan!
"I have been treated for Rheumatoid Arthritis for over twelve years by many doctors and with different medications. I have had some good results but since I started acupuncture with Susan Kane I have been able to reduce my medications almost in half. The movement in my hands, elbows and knees have greatly improved, more so than with other treatments. I would send anyone I know to Susan. I recommend acupuncture very highly."
"Recently I had a painful case of the shingles on my face. On recommendation from a friend I sought out Susan for an acupuncture treatment. This was my first time receiving acupuncture. My treatment included traditional needles as well as microcurrent electrotherapy. Within less than 24 hours of the first treatment I stopped taking the powerful pain killers prescribed by my physician as the pain was reduced by approximately 90%. The fact that I felt this relief so quickly, and after being on antivirals for less than a day, convinced me that acupuncture was the right treatment for me. The whole experience with Susan from the intake interview on my first visit, her soft spoken and empathetic personality, the painless treatment itself and the peaceful atmosphere of her treatment area was such a beneficial and positive experience. I know that I will seek Susan out again should the need arise."
"Two years ago, I had knee pain resulting from torn cartilage. It required a total knee replacement. I saw Susan for pain relief before and after the surgery and it helped greatly.
This year I had a recurrence of a kidney problem. My creatinine level was up to 2.9 (normal creatinine level is 0.1-1.4). Ultrasound showed a narrowing of the artery to the right kidney. I decided to see Susan because I was desperate and the options I was facing were not good. I knew acupuncture had worked before on my knee pain. I had acupuncture treatments for three months and during that time my creatinine level dropped to 1.4 and has stayed there. I feel good. My energy level is up."
I have been receiving acupuncture treatments off and on for seventeen years with Susan Kane. I highly recommend Susan as she is professional, knowledgeable, kind, understanding and accommodating. She is the first person I think of whenever I am hurting.
Over the years, Susan has treated me for allergies, stiff neck, rib pain, menstrual problems, hip and back pain, gout and weight loss. I often think that if it were not for acupuncture, I would probably be in a wheelchair by now, too racked with pain to be mobile.
I have found that any medication or pain reliever that I have needed to take has worked better when I have acupuncture. Recently diagnosed with diabetes, I find that, with acupuncture, my sugar levels have dropped into the normal range for the first time.
I tell everyone about acupuncture because it has helped me so much. I use acupuncture as a first course of treatment for whatever ails me because I know I will get quick results. I also know that if, for some reason, Susan thinks that acupuncture cannot help me, she will refer me to another health professional. Susan, and acupuncture, is at the top of my “Medical Team” list.
"Acupuncture treatments helped me cope with the physical and emotional aspects of grief/grieving. When my husband passed away suddenly, I developed headaches, neck and jaw pain, and the physical heaviness of grieving. Within days of starting acupuncture with Susan, my physical pains were lessening and were soon gone. Susan also helped me with the emotional stress of grieving and, over the course of a few months, helped me to cope and adjust to my loss. Susan's treatments helped me to regain my physical and emotional well-being.”
"From head to toe, Susan Kane knows our bodies and treats our health concerns better than any practitioner we have worked with. She gives her full attention our various symptoms whether it is an arthritic ache in a ring finger or a pain in the achilles tendon without sending us off to have complicated and expensive test procedures. Not only does she listen carefully but her treatments work - all the time. If we had our "druthers", we both would be in her office once a week for relaxing maintenance. She's our first line of support and defense when addressing our health and well being."
