Huntington Beach Resident Anne S. had been experiencing the painful side effects of Peripheral Neuropathy, “my feet and legs were extremely painful and my doctor told me there was nothing they could do. That I would have to take Gabapentin for the rest of my life.” Then she met Huntington Beach’s very own Dr. Stefanie Bennett.
Peripheral Neuropathy is the pain, discomfort and numbness caused by nerve damage of the peripheral nervous system. Anne explained that daily tasks like opening doors and using the bathroom were overwhelmingly painful. “How can you live for the next 30 years when you don’t even want to get out of bed to do simple things?”
She was experiencing the burning, numbness, tingling and sharp pains that those suffering with neuropathy often describe. “The way that I would describe it, it’s equivalent to walking on glass.” Anne hadn’t worn socks in five years and was wearing shoes two sizes too big so that nothing would
‘touch’ her feet.
Unfortunately, Anne’s story is all too familiar for the over 3 million people in the U.S. suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy.
If you’re unfortunate enough to be facing the same disheartening prognosis you’re not sleeping at night because of the burning in your feet. You have difficulty walking, shopping or doing any activity for more than 30 minutes because of the pain. You’re struggling with balance and living in fear that you might fall. Your doctor told you to ‘just live with the pain’ and you’re taking medications that aren’t working or have uncomfortable side effects.
Fortunately, four months ago Anne read an article about Dr. Stefanie Bennett and the work she was doing to treat those suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy, without invasive surgeries or medications
Dr. Bennett, founder of Bennett Acupuncture and Functional Medicine of Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach, is using the time-tested science of Acupuncture and a technology originally developed by NASA that assists in increasing blood flow and expediting recovery and healing to treat this debilitating disease.
“Now when I go to bed at night I don’t have those shooting pains. I don’t have that burning sensation. I don’t have pain coming up my legs,” Anne enthusiastically describes life after receiving Dr. Bennett’s treatments. “I can wear socks and shoes!”
“It’s life altering. As far as I’m concerned Dr. Bennett saved my life!”
Dr. Bennett has been helping the senior community for over 20 years using the most cutting edge and innovative integrative medicine. Specializing in chronic pain cases, specifically those that have been deemed ‘hopeless’ or ‘untreatable’, she consistently generates unparalleled results.
What was once a missing link in senior healthcare is now easily accessible to the residents of Huntington Beach.
If you’ve missed too many tee times because of pain or you’ve passed on walking dog beach with your grandkids and pup, because you’re afraid of falling, it’s time to call Dr. Bennett and the staff at Bennett Acupuncture.
It’s time you let your golden years BE GOLDEN!
