I witnessed something truly extraordinary this weekend. A friend of mine who is also a patient had bilateral BK (below knee) amputations 3 months ago and still had excruciating pain in her tibias (shin bone) where the bone had been cut. She had been absolutely miserable from the pain she had been experiencing, even with pain medication. Her pain level was so high that she couldn't even wiggle the stumps or amputation sites, and had a lot of pain climbing into her wheelchair and during transfers in and out of her wheelchair.
Several days before I treated her, I instructed her to drink her water requirement of 1 quart per 50 pounds of body weight per day. I also told her to eat a lot of meat protein and vegetables, so that her body had the fuel that it needed to heal.
During her TBM treatment I thought of a chronic pain correction I had used on another patient with chronic head pain, and used it on her. In a matter of 30 seconds, she had almost NO pain in her tibia at all!!! She immediately started to cry because it was almost unbelievable. She could touch her tibia with no pain!
After she cried and we celebrated the amazing results, I said "Are you ready for me to work on the other tibia?" About a minute later, we were so happy again, as now BOTH tibias weren't hurting!
She had avoided wiggling her legs because of the excruiciating pain before the correction, and after the correction she tried wiggling them. No pain! It felt so good to her because before her amputation she liked to wiggle her ankles and twist her feet around.
She called her mom and sister to share the good news! She said it was her first day as a Happy Amputee.
It was a moment I'll always remember.

After just one session of Acupuncture and a Chiropractic Adjustment my pain level immediately began to reside and I had a renewed sense of hope. I really could not believe it. Dr. Kristine had already started giving me back my life.
You did it again! I feel like a million bucks! I truly feel like I get my "money's worth" when you treat me. Not only do you treat the problem at hand but you go the extra mile to do some preventative work.
Dr. Baker is my miracle. Her caring ways and knowledgeable hands have helped me when no one else would. When I moved away from the area, I tried another acupuncturist and did not get as good results as with Dr. Baker. She has changed my life and I thank God every day that I met her and that she cared enough to help when no one else would.
I remember leaving my initial appointment feeling very empowered. I didn’t feel guilty, defeated, or responsible anymore. I felt very hopeful. I truly believe that the regular acupuncture and chiropractic adjustments played a huge role in my success with getting pregnant this second time.
I feel so blessed to have been referred to Dr. Baker as I feel that she has totally improved my quality of life. I will always be grateful to my friend at church for leading me to her and I will always be grateful to her for making my life more enjoyable.
