Shoulder and Neck Pain, Numbness and Weakness of Fingers and Hands
I had never experienced acupuncture before, and wasn’t certain how it would feel. It wasn’t at all unpleasant or painful and Dr. Huang took time to listen to all my concerns. He ensured during each treatment that I was feeling well and comfortable. He also took the time to treat my entire body, rather than focusing only on my shoulder pain symptoms.
With the combination or acupuncture, Chinese herb pills and a very soothing and relieving herbal analgesic spray, I’ve noticed such a positive effect. I have more energy, developed a sense of well-being, my fingers have gained strength back and my shoulder has been reduced from a constant intensely painful area to the feeling of simply a tight muscle. It will take a little more time for my shoulder to heal completely.
Dr. Huang is a very professional health care practitioner, who really seems to genuinely care about his patients. My experience with him has been very positive. I would highly recommend seeking his care.
