Recently I had a patient come in with a syringomyelia in his cervical spine (his neck). It was at a level in his neck (C6-C7) that his Doctors told him they would not operate. It was a small syringomyelia but it had a big impact on his quality of life.
He came in with symptoms of:
-dizziness and motor control issues that caused balance problems (he had to walk with a cane)
-pain in his neck and back that was constant
-having to sleep elevated since he was a teenager
-light sensitivity: bright indoor lights bothered him and sometimes made him feel faint
He was immune to all painkillers so taking them to help with pain was not an option.
After his first visit he said that his neck and back pain were immediately 90% better. What a relief! He kept noticing improvements at each visit. Once he had his 6th Acupuncture treatment he didn't have to use his cane anymore. By visit 8 he reported that he has been able to lay flat to sleep for the first time in almost 30 years. He has been able to be more active at his job and is really enjoying his improved quality of life.

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.
