Arthritis is a degenerative condition, well-known for causing a lot of chronic pain especially in the joints as the joints degenerate over time. Traditionally, arthritis sufferers can tell when rain or snow is in the forecast even before the local weatherman can. There can be a genetic predisposition for developing more severe and widespread arthritis. It can also be caused by significant repetitive use in one’s career or hobbies, or from trauma and injuries. Most arthritis patients are traditionally prescribed NSAID’s, narcotics, or steroids.
Cloud 9’s arthritis patients have a lot to say about our helpful Arthritis Program at Cloud 9 Acupuncture. We credit our 90% success rate with our innovative cutting edge therapies such as ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM, O3 Regenerative TherapyTM to restore the joints, and pharmaceutical grade supplements to correct vitamin and mineral deficiencies to help the body heal itself.
Our successful Arthritis Program provides patients relief, even after nothing else has worked. Before coming to Cloud 9, patients have usually tried medications, physical therapy, and even stem cell therapy without much improvement.
Now there is Hope… Cloud 9 is usually described the Last Resort with the Best Hope. Call today for a consult 410-847-4766 to learn more and see if you are a candidate for our Arthritis Program.
Neuropathy plagues approximately 20 million people in the United States. This particular type of nerve damage can have a multitude of medical causes.
- Chemotherapy (or Radiation) Induced Peripheral Neuropathy also known as CIPN
- Nerve damage, especially originating from spinal compression, bulging disc, or pinched nerve.
- Viral Induced (including COVID-19)
Symptoms usually include tingling, numbness that can be quite painful, feeling of walking on “pins and needles,” unable to properly feel one’s feet or hands. After the pain of numbness and sharp, hot pain fades the feet or hands become truly numb, which is a progressive degeneration of the condition. This is a sign that the peripheral nerves have actually died and started to recede, which presents as true numbness creeping upwards, for example from the feet up the legs to even the groin. Or from the hands towards the shoulder. The exact level of severity of the Neuropathy condition is assessed by a neurological exam called the Toronto Exam.
Unfortunately, there is not much doctors can offer to treat neuropathy… Until now.
Now there is Hope.
At Cloud 9 Acupuncture, we have over a 85% success rate in significantly improving neuropathy cases. Without meds, without side effects, we use acupuncture combined with cutting edge technology to create a reversal of neuropathy. To get started, call for a consultation to find out if you are a candidate for our Neuropathy Program.
It started out as a normal outing.
Irreversible is not a word you want to hear from your Doctor but it’s a common one if you’ve been diagnosed with Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy or CIPN.
Elliot S. of Towson survived testicular cancer only to be living life in constant pain. He felt as though he were walking on pins and needles, becoming weaker and weaker by the day. “I was beginning to be worried that one day I would be wheelchair-bound.”
Nearly half of patients who undergo chemotherapy will develop Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy or CIPN.
Chemotherapy meds travel throughout the body and attack cancer cells, sadly they can also cause severe damage to healthy nerves. CIPN can begin within weeks of starting treatment and can worsen as treatment continues. A high number of really unfortunate people will be forced to endure the symptoms associated with CIPN for months or even years after they’ve completed chemo.
When asked how CIPN was affecting his quality of life, he responded, “It was difficult to even walk up and down stairs and do other things we usually take for granted.”
The most common symptoms include:
- pain, tingling, burning, weakness, or numbness in arms, hands, legs or feet
- sudden, sharp, stabbing or shocking pain sensations
- loss of touch sensation
- clumsiness and trouble using hands to pick up objects or fasten clothing
- loss of balance or falling
For some, their nerves will recover over time. For most, the nerve damage is ‘irreversible. ‘ Elliot had been told just that by a series of Doctors and specialists. Essentially they could cure his cancer but couldn’t fix the damage done by the drugs used to cure his cancer.
Then Elliot made a call to Acupuncturist Laura Parks of Cloud 9 Acupuncture right here in Timonium, MD. Acupuncturist Laura Parks is using time-tested science of Acupuncture and technology originally developed by NASA that assists in increasing blood flow and expediting recovery and healing to treat this debilitating disease.
After a series of treatments, Elliot was taking stairs with stride! “We have a house and it has stairs. This morning I walked right down the stairs and got into the car,” Elliot shared.
“I remember thinking ‘that’s become mighty easy for me,’ I didn’t have to hold on to the handrail or anything!
It’s life changing to have this mobility back!
Again and again, we meet with patients who were once diagnosed as “untreatable” or “incurable” but after receiving Laura Parks’ treatments are now living lives free from pain and suffering. For over 11 years she has been reversing the effects of CIPN and other varieties of Peripheral Neuropathy, including that caused by diabetes without invasive surgeries and medications that come with uncomfortable side effects.
If you’ve recently beat cancer only to find that you’re living a life in constant pain and discomfort or you’re struggling with the same symptoms as a result of either Idiopathic Neuropathy or Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, Acupuncturist Laura Parks and the incredible team at Cloud 9 can help!
