This limitation in motion poses with not only extreme discomfort and pain, but is also a safety concern. Without the mobility of her neck, she cannot drive safely to work to treat her own patients who rely on her let alone treat her patients comfortably.
As a practitioner herself she has been managing the condition. However, the neck and back can be difficult to treat on yourself because you cannot reach all the necessary points!
Thankfully, she knew to call the HeCares Urgent Care Team. My intern and I reached the patients house within 45 min. In just an hour of acupuncture with electrical stimulation, cupping and moxa, we were able to have a sideways conversation as you can see from the photos!
If you, a friend or family member ever find yourself in a situation like this and needs urgent care in home, hospital or office, please count on the HeCares Urgent Care Team.
The following is a list of conditions the HeCares Urgent Care Team often treat:
Neck or Back strains
Post Surgical pain
Seasonal Allergies and Colds
