I am s 57-year-old woman and had an impact from a car door to my head (the left lateral frontal bone). Immediately following I had nausea, neck pain, and headache followed by (within days) a severe headache (temporal pressure like band wrapping around the head and over the top to my forehead and eyes. I had severe light and sound sensitivity, vertigo, pressure to the sides of head, increased head and neck pain, memory loss, and eventually severe insomnia (0-2 hours per night),weight gain (though decreased caloric intake along with decreased exercise). I was also exhausted all the time and developed a very loud tinnitus in both ears. I went on like this for 7 months and if anything, it was seeming to get worse.
Then I saw Dr. Karen Helmick and Dr. Nancy Hiller. They worked as a team and gave me a “multi-modal” treatment of Scalp Acupuncture with Auricular and body acupuncture, Cold Laser treatments, and one or two Acupuncture Injection therapy treatments with B12 & homeopathics.
All I know was that my first day with them, my life turned around. I went for 5-6 weeks and EVERYthing went away and I was my old self again. I even started losing weight again.
That was over two years ago and now I just go once every couple of months for “maintenance” so I never have to feel like that again! Thank You SO Much! – Cheryl G., Venice FL
