|“I sought out the services of Monmouth Pain and Rehab after a year of fighting breast cancer. The Treatment removed my cancer but the medications left me with constant muscle and joint pain.” I did not have the endurance to work full-time and I had frequent absences from work. I needed to reduce the pain and increase my energy level. I had heard acupuncture was good for pain and set out to consult with the doctor.|
I have never had any kind of physical therapy, chiropractic care or acupuncture of any kind prior to my first consult. However, that first consult with Dr. Eric put my mind at ease. I was very specific about my goals but I also realized the challenge presented because I am still in follow up care and my body had been through chemo, surgery and radiation. I was able to discuss my health history, my post cancer treatment and health insurance issues. I was also able to explain my concerns and apprehension about chiropractic care, even though I was willing to try.
I was assured I could be helped and we developed a plan to have physical therapy starting three times a week with chiropractic care and acupuncture twice a week. I was told that within 6-8 weeks I would notice a difference in the way I felt.With the first appointment great emphasis was put on my mobility, balance and strength. Focus was placed on the aspects of my movement that need the most attention. The staff was gentle but attentive. Then the transformation happened. Within a period of about 7 weeks, I was running up steps when I used to walk with a limp. I stopped waking up with back and neck aches. I stopped calling out sick. The “slow and steady” philosophy served me well and produced good results. Without hesitation I would recommend this facility if you want to improve physically and if you are looking for a staff that is caring and kind. There is a positive vibe among everyone here. They all great you by name when you come in, they respect each other’s individual work yet still have a great sense of teamwork. It is a pleasure to experience. – Tami Davis
|“They really do care. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!” I never tried acupuncture until I came to Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation. I have an open mind and was willing to try anything that could possibly help me with my lupus symptoms. I am so happy that I did. I feel so much better now than I did the first day I walked in here. They pinpoint whatever ails me and they focus on that area until I feel better. Because of Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, I now have my spirit back and a pep in my step. I am so active now and feel better than I have in many years. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation has given me my life back and I thank them from the bottom of my heart for taking such great care of me. They really do care. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! – Melissa C.|
|“I truly enjoy it which means it must be working.” I began acupuncture in January of 2014 and truly take advantage of the relaxation I gain from my treatments. Relaxation is hard for me to obtain outside of acupuncture so the time that I have for myself during treatment is amazing. I truly enjoy it which means it must be working. – Julia W.|
