In September 2009, I awoke with a sharp pain radiating from my neck down my shoulder and through my right arm-the first time I had ever experienced any pain in this area. I found it difficult to move my neck, shoulder, or arm without grimacing in discomfort, as spasms of pain would radiate throughout this pathway upon movement.
I decided to follow a friend's advice and visit Dr. Marrello, who recommended acupuncture treatment for a possible pinched nerve. While I was hesitant to receive acupuncture due to my phobia of needles, I found that Dr. Marrello had a very gentle, pain-free method of administering the acupuncture therapy.
Following only a single treatment session, my pain had disappeared completely within two days. Dr. Marrello made me a believer in alternative forms of medicine.
I've returned many times to Dr. Marrello for adjustments, phy
sical rehabilitation of injuries, and acupuncture sessions. I've always found him to be attentive, focused, highly professional, and a good listener. I've recommended many friends and relatives to Platinum Chiropractic, and I know that whenever I have a sudden musculoskeletal ache or pain, I can always make an appointment to see Dr. Marrello and get lasting relief.
